BREWDOG has targeted Russia's anti-homosexuality laws ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi with what it claims is the world's first "protest beer".

Hello My Name is Vladimir, labelled "not for gays" to bypass laws banning the promotion of "homosexual propaganda", features an Andy Warhol-inspired image of the Russian president Vladimir Putin on the bottle. It depicts the premier wearing eye shadow. Brewdog said 50% of the profits will go to charities representing oppressed minorities.
