    ‘A Russian comedian who made jokes about President Vladimir Putin and Christianity says he has fled the country over fears for his safety.

    Aleksandr Dolgopolov, 25, said he became concerned after learning that police were investigating footage from his stand-up performances.

    Authorities said they had received a complaint that Dolgopolov had been "insulting the feelings of believers".

    The interior ministry in Moscow confirmed police were investigating.’

    Good to see that Russia is making the leap into the 21st Century after decades of oppression.

    The US used to be a target for these refugees. I have a feeling that he did not flee here.

    Oh how times have changed.

    It worked for Yakov Smirnoff. But as you say times are changing.

    I expect he's in the Ukraine, or even farther west, where politicians are less thin skinned.

    And we see where Dump gets his cue, do we not? His favorite Icon (and Boss), Putin hates criticism. What else from a Terrorist (KGB)?
