It's the unveiling of a new tombstone near the Russian embassy in Kiev... of President Vladimir Putin. Ukrainian activists have made his image look like Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. The event was marked with champagne... and sparklers. This man says he wants the international community to help Ukraine, and that he hopes Putin dies.

Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine more than a year ago.
