SAINT-PETERSBURG - Russian police have raided an erotica museum in Saint Petersburg and confiscated a painting showing a naked Vladimir Putin with an erect penis squaring off at his equally naked US counterpart Barack Obama, a curator said Wednesday.
A man looks at a painting called "Wrestling," by Vera Donskaya-Khilko displayed in a Moscow's art gallery, on Wednesday. Saint-Petersburg police yesterday removed from the city's erotic museum a copy of "Wrestling" that depicts presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama posing naked and boasting oversized multicoloured penises.

The raid on the museum, which describes itself as one of the largest erotica museums in Europe, took place Tuesday night ahead of Mr Obama's expected arrival in Russia's second city to take part in the G20 summit later this week.
