Mudslingers: women wrestle with Ukraine’s dirty politics

The Ukrainian feminist movement ‘Femen’ has organised a series of mud wrestling contests on the capital's main square to protest against ‘dirty’ politics.

It follows President Viktor Yushchenko’s decision to dissolve parliament and call a snap election.  The women said they were prepared to get their hands dirty to show how Ukraine’s political system was being dragged through the mud.
