Vladimir Putin. Russia. Olympics. What more needs to be said? Tons! And, of course, the media is all the way behind uncovering the injustice happening in Russia at the moment, especially towards its LGBT community… and that the Russians aren’t ready at all for the Sochi Winter Olympics that are starting… today!
This is a selection of (smart and creative) covers focusing on the Winter Olympics, Gay-rights and also Putin — I’ll let the different covers talk for themselves. May the media keep fighting for people’s rights and not be silenced!
