Politicians didnít like it, the public didnít like it, so the gigantic Louis Vuitton suitcase is being booted out of Red Square.

The GUM department store on Red Square, which is responsible for 30-feet (nine meters) high and 100-feet (30-meters) long construction, promised in a statement released Wednesday that it would be dismantled.

Politicians and public alike condemned the exhibit, a stoneís throw from the tomb of communist leader Vladimir Lenin. State news agencies reported that the Kremlin had demanded the removal of the display.

The construction is part of an exhibition called "The Soul of Travel," marking Vuittonís 150th anniversary and was to open on Dec. 2. Louis Vuitton said the construction was a copy of a model owned by a Russian noble, Prince Vladimir Orlov.

LOL I've never seen a single Russian call Putin a dictator it's always someone from the West who seems to know everything.

I never understood why Westerners are so concerned about Putin and his "dictatorship" and his policies instead of being concerned about the dictatorship called the EU and being outraged at the fact that peaceful protestors are met with tear gas and water cannons, it even outraged Lukashenko.

They are concerned because he is in the way of their global agenda,they didn't have a problem with that drunken Court Jester Yeltsin,they could pat him on the head and send him away with a bottle of vodka,those days are over and they can't stand it.

Everybody has been afraid of this, but I'm not sure the Russian people are.

The fact that it is not a country is even worse, that means the dictatorship is from abroad, your people might want it gone, but the people who are in the state where the headquarters are located, not so much.
