Various T-shirts were set out on a stall with a samovar in front of the Pushkin monument. The T-shirts displayed featured funny and provocative texts in Russian. Some read “Sanctions?

Don’t make my Iskanders laugh” and featured pictures of these mobile ballistic missile systems.

Some had the text of the Russian anthem on the background of St. Basil’s Cathedral /on Red Square/.

All are trendy, nice and funny. Our action is called ‘Fashion’s Answer to the Sanctions is No!’,” designer Anastasia Zadorina, whose company had manufactured 30,000 such T-shirts, told ITAR-TASS.
