    Someone Painted The Crosswalk Outside The Russian Embassy In Stockholm Rainbow Colors

    Two weeks after protests that included topless woman jumping the Russian embassy fence, the crosswalk outside the building have been painted rainbow colors.

    The zebra crosswalk outside the Russian embassy in Stockholm has been painted rainbow colors.

    The embassy was the site of a demonstration two weeks ago during Stockholm's Pride festival to protest Russia for its legislation that criminalizes "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."

    Around 200 protesters were outside the embassy for the demonstration, which was held August 1.

    Law enforcement was called to the protests after several topless woman hopped the fence. One woman held a sign reading "homosexual propaganda on Russian ground."

    The women were released after confessing to trespassing.
