'Putin's slut!' Female protestor strips off as Czech President casts vote

The Czechs are electing a new president, and eight candidates are hoping to unseat the current controversy-courting leader.

Czech President Milos Zeman was confronted by a topless female protester with "Zeman, Putin's Slut" scrawled across her chest as voting began on January 12 in the first round of the country's presidential election.

Also in the presidential race are Michal Horacek, a former songwriter and businessman, Pavel Fischer, a former diplomat, and Mirek Topolanek, who served as prime minister from 2006 to 2009.

Protest group Femen said the woman was one of its Ukrainian members, Angelina Diash, and compared Mr Zeman to other allegedly pro-Kremlin "political prostitutes" like United States president Donald Trump and French far-right leader Marie Le Pen.

Femen, founded in Ukraine, has staged anti-Kremlin protests and is now also focuses on the Catholic Church which it says suppresses women's rights.

If no candidate wins a majority of the vote, a run-off election between the top two candidates will be held two weeks later. His guards intervened and led the shaken president away.

Opponents of Mr Zeman fear unchecked populism if he wins another term and rules alongside new Czech prime minister Andrej Babis, a business tycoon who is also critical of the European Union and rejects its quota plan to resettle refugees in member states.

Mr Zeman has become a vocal critic of the Euro bloc, railing against immigration, stoking the flames of Islamaphobia and encouraging closer ties with Russian Federation and China.
