VATNIK: The Putin Voodoo Magnet
Moreover, ‘VATNIK: The Putin Voodoo Magnet’ was created back in 2014. Hence, this isn’t the first time that there is a voodoo doll for the Russian dictator.
During the project, the manufacturers pinned Ukrainian flags with voodoo dolls with Putin’s face to raise $5,000. When the war between Russia and Ukraine started in February 2014, this project mocked the Russian president.
