Pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine, calling themselves the Luhansk People's Republic, are preparing to play a soccer game in Novi Sad, Serbia. The team will celebrate afterwards at the local watering hole, Cafe Putin.
The Moscow Times reports that, "President Vladimir Putin may have won few recent admirers in the West, but he has found an unusual ally in the form of a Serbian restaurant owner who has decided to name his cafe after the Russian leader."
Mijanic is quoted as saying that, "A lot of people in Novi Sad respect President Vladimir Putin. There are many Russophiles and people who adore him."
According to the Moscow Times, "Cafe Putin, whose sign displays a portrait of the Russian head of state, will open next week in Serbia's second-largest city Novi Sad, owner Radivoj Miljanic told Serbian television network RTC."
Many Serbians support Putin and despise President Barry Obama.
