A big inflatable duck has been arrested in St Petersburg
The New Statesman reports that ducks were adopted as a symbol by oppositionists and their allies after an anti-corruption investigation into Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s wealth.
It symbolizes PM Medvedev's reported opulence & acceptance of political gifts. The reports also mentioned a duck house on his estate.
