Now that Russian lawmakers have made solid progress killing social media in country, they have turned their attention to the important things: pornography. Liberal Democratic Party lawmaker Roman Khudyakov feels that the Russian 100 ruble bill (pictured above) contains a pornographic image.
The bill pictures the Greek God Apollo, wearing, well, what Greeks wore. Some kind of vague toga situation. The statue is from the portico at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, which was restored in 2010, and an important historic monument for Russians. At the time of restoration, Apollo's boy parts were covered with a fig leaf.
While the theater did painstakingly restore this portico, it was all in vain, according to Khudyakov. In his letter to the Central Bank of Russia, which issues banknotes, Khudyakov argued that the bill shows "intimate parts of the body" and therefore should come with an "18+" rating, similar to an R rating for movies. He believes that the scantily clad Apollo on the bill breaks the law which protects children from viewing "potentially damaging information." A 100 ruble bill is less than three United States dollars, so it is often given to kids as pocket money.
