The Russian street artist known as Zoom recently installed a relief in Saint Petersburg, depicting Medusa Gorgon with the face of Belarus' dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

Zoom posted pictures of the piece online, captioning it “Evil is Near” and adding the hashtag #zhyvebelarus. The slogan, which means “Long live Belarus”, has been used by Belarusian anti-government protesters. The Lukashenko government has labeled it a Nazi symbol.

The relief was mounted on a building wall. Soon after the pictures started spreading online, municipal workers removed the piece.
