THE WHOLE GANG'S COMING! Protest How "liberal" is newly-anointed Russian President-elect Dmitry Medvedev, the one so many people are saying represents a possible thaw in post-Putin politics? My Moscow newspaper just found out the hard way—one of Russia's leading printing presses censored us yesterday over a page-six photo essay that we'd headlined "Fucking For Medvedev."

It is the first time in the 11-year history of The exile, that our newspaper has ever been censored. What's odd about it for us is that the "Fucking For Medvedev" spread, while not exactly family-friendly, is hardly the most shocking thing we've ever printed; we've run a cover depicting a nearly-nude Putin fucking Bill Clinton from behind, another cover depicting Putin as a midget in the Hitlerjugen getting his head patted by a pleased Fuhrer, and a cover demanding that President Yeltsin "Die Already!" during one of his many illnesses.

The offending article/photo essay in the current issue covered a hardcore anti-Medvedev orgy by a performance art troupe named "Voina" (or "War").

Slightly less censored versions of the photos in question after the jump—they're still plenty NSFW!
