Russian women are being urged to emblazon Vladimir Putin on their chests in a new range of revealing patriotic shirts.

With an election due next year, the designs are aimed at boosting support for the Kremlin strongman.

The initiative is from a patriotic youth group called Project Set. Some designs expose the cleavage in a love heart which Putin holds in his hands.

Others use a profile of the president to show admiration for Putin. Another design uses a Russian map to ram home the patriotic message.

Fabrics used are all Russian and the garments are made in the country too.

Ilya Sadalskikh, designer and pro-Putin activist, said: ‘Putin is a long term famous brand and not just a politician.

Support: Fabrics used are all Russian and the garments are made in the country too

‘Just a portrait of the President on a T-shirt is not surprising anymore.

‘Many young designers who are working in the field of patriotic fashion are looking for their own unique angle or a fresh idea.

‘We think we have found one. Time and demand will prove if we are right or not.’

Putin is widely expected to declare his intention to seek another six year term as Russian president in the 2018 election.

    On December 27, 1943, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR issued a decree on the liquidation of the Kalmyk ASSR. This was the beginning of the operation “Uluses” – the deportation of the indigenous population of Kalmykia to Siberia. The eviction of the Kalmyks was seen as a punishment for mass opposition to the bodies of Soviet power. The NKVD leadership involved in the operation more than 4 thousand soldiers withdrawn from the front. In just two days, about a hundred thousand people lost their roofs over their heads. They were taken out in wagons for livestock, on the way they perished from hunger, hypothermia and diseases.

    Kalmyks settled throughout Siberia – in the Omsk, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Tyumen and other areas. Compact living was not allowed: in one village left for several families. Deportation claimed the lives of more than 40 thousand people. The number of the Kalmyk people decreased more than twice.

    On March 17, 1956, the Kalmyks were rehabilitated, they were allowed to return to their homeland. They threw their habitable places and hurried to their native steppe. In 1991, the Russian parliament recognized the deportation of Kalmyks as an act of genocide https://lenta.ru/photo/2017/06/10/kalmykia_repressii/
