Putin was on a one-day visit in the Netherlands for the start of the Netherlands-Russia Year.

Some of the lyrics:

There lives an evil man in Russia nowadays
He supports a law against lesbians and gays
Most people look at him with terror and with fear
Cause he pulls the strings like a wicked puppeteer
It's distressing how he is suppressing homosexuality
In the name of love we are protesting: Set our sisters free.
Stop stop stop Putin - Drop your law at the Kremlin - Love is no crime it's not a disease
Stop stop stop Putin - Your plans are so poisoning - For all the Russian LGBTs.
