Vladimir Putin Banner Unfurled from New York’s Manhattan Bridge

A giant banner with a photo of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin was hung from the side of Manhattan Bridge, causing police to scramble to remove it, a report says.

The banner featured the word “peacemaker” underneath the photo of the Russian leader, NBC New York reports.

Looking to be about 20 feet in length, the banner was hung from the bridge by unknown pranksters sometime before 2:00 p.m. on October 6. Police had removed the display by 3:00 p.m.
