Bare-chested women protest beside Olaf Scholz in call for Russian gas ban

German Chancellor found himself suddenly flanked by topless women during a press event, as part of a protest calling for an embargo on Germany’s import of Russian gas during the war in Ukraine.

The 2 women, who had “gas embargo now” daubed across their chests, approached the chancellor during an open-door day event in the garden of his office in Berlin on Sunday and took off their tops while standing on either side of Olaf Scholz.

A dpa photographer at the scene reported that security guards immediately intervened and led the two women away. Scholz remained at the same spot and continued the photo event with other visitors.
