    I think you should do some quick research on Russian skinheads and other racist movements within Russia...assaults on black victoms are surprisingly common in Russia, despite the relatively small amounts of black businessmen and exchange students there.

    That said, I don't think this was intended as racist, but rather an attempt to sell ice cream through association with a popular international figure.

    My friends tell me that if I ever leave the country, they say never go to Russia because you might not come back.

    I don't really see this as racist. In fact, the whole thing seems pretty positive to me.

    Not to mention deep-rooted anti-Semitism in both Russia and Europe. Many people on the left (at least in the US) make the mistake of thinking that racism is mainly a disease of white Americans, but itís a condition of human nature.

    I love the packaging though...



    Especially the rainbows.
    The rainbows are... wow...

    What's up with that flag, though?

    Well, I dunno about ice and Putin, but we can always make Putin Poutine, and I guess if we wanted, we can make Gorbachev ice cream, vanilla, with a cherry splotch on the side...

    Gorbachev is not very popular in Russia though. That would be a sales killer.

    Ah, right, you wanted to sell the Russian figure in the USA. Okay, not as hard to sell Gorbachev then, but I'm afraid he's still hardly the media thunder that Obama is by any degree, even with that enticing birth mark gimimck.
