A collapsed billboard could not stand either strong gusts of wind, or the "weight" of Putin’s image.
Fortunately, no one was hurt. Today, utility team has carried out repair work on the site.
As previously reported, Putin's image on billboards repeatedly was splashed with black paint.
According to the so-called Prime Minister of Crimea Sergey Aksenov, law enforcement officers detained two students, who damaged the billboards with public service ad and a picture of Russian President, in early November.
Following that, the graffiti with Putin's image on the city's waterfront was spoiled as well.
