Ded Moroz (Russian Santa) was detained on the Red Square, while protesting against the cancellation of New Year celebrations. Due to coronavirus restrictions, he is in danger of poverty, since neither Christmas/ new year celebrations will be held, nor Santa will be hired this year.
Russia’s Santa Claus was gently detained on Red Square last night with two of his most loyal elves, for picketing in defense of holiday festivities & NYE. His legion fans on @telegram report he has since been released & is free to ride home. pic.twitter.com/ZHWDNF8Qf4
