An anti-war gran has been thrown in jail after she left a death note at Vladimir Putin's parents' graves.
Irina Tsybanyeva, 60, visited the gravesite of Maria and Vladimir and left a message which is said to have expressed her hopes for him to die.
She follows other activists who have marched over to the St. Petersburg cemetery to make their feelings known.

However, she is believed to be the first to have been arrested for causing unrest at the gravesite on Thursday (October 6).
Her son Maksim Tsybanyev told Mediazona that she was arrested.
“What is in the note is not known for certain. But she said that it had a wish [for him] to die," he said.
“She didn’t open the door for a long time, but in the end, he [a policeman] promised to pry it open and she opened it. They pissed around for a long time.
"As a result, by night time, she called and said there would be a raid."
The mum is facing charges of desecration of the bodies of the dead and their burial places.

She could be jailed for up to five years.
It has been reported that a group of activists left a similar note at the site less than two weeks ago.
It read: “Dear parents, Your son is misbehaving! He is skipping history lessons, fighting with classmates, and threatening to blow up the whole school! Do something!”
