A performance artist has been detained in Moscow after stripping naked and nailing his scrotum to the cobblestones of Red Square in a protest.
Pyotr Pavlensky, 29, reportedly sat for an hour and a half on the square on Sunday afternoon, with a nail driven through his genitals into the ground.
The St Petersburg performer had faced a custodial sentence of 15 days but was freed on Monday.
Pavlensky said his "Fixation" act was a metaphor for apathy in Russia.
Well this guy definitely had some balls..
