Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the Netherlands on Monday to promote the growing economic ties between the two countries. Apparently, the Netherlands has replaced Germany as Russia’s #1 trading partner in Europe, and the second largest globally after China.

In response to Russia’s pending anti-gay legislation which would make public events and dissemination of information about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to minors punishable by fines of up to $16,000, the city of Amsterdam put rainbow flags up all over the city. The city also put up some pretty funny posters and tape cordoning off areas where I guess Putin would be.

<p>Amsterdam is turning rainbow for a visit of the Russian president Putin. The council of the city of Amsterdam has decided to hang out the gay pride flag on all council owned buildings and offices, in protest to Russia’s new anti-gay law.</p>
<p>there’s several of these as well;</p>
<p>pretty sure Amsterdam is now the sass capital of the world<br />
