'Smoking Kills More People Than Obama,' Russian Ad Claims

A Russian anti-smoking poster spotted at a bus stop in Moscow claims that cigarettes are killers -- just like President Barack Obama. It features a photo of the president taking a drag and claims, "Smoking kills more people than Obama, although he kills lots and lots of people," above the words, "Don't smoke, don't be like Obama."

Russian politician Dmitry Gudkov posted the propaganda to Facebook, saying he was "disgusted and ashamed of what appears on the streets of the Russian capital."

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the ad, which doesn't feature any sponsors, and Moscow city hall has yet to comment, according to the Guardian.

It comes shortly after a slew of YouTube videos and posters with anti-Obama sentiments made the rounds in Russia, including one where university students from across the country demanded the U.S. president be punished for "thousands of lost lives every week."

In January, an art group hung a banner featuring Obama and the word "killer" across from the U.S. embassy in the Russian capital, according to The Moscow Times.

However, Obama has said that he's a dedicated non-smoker and he only had a few slip-ups at the White House after famously quitting cigarettes in 2010. 

Smoking cigarettes kills more than 6,000,000 people worldwide every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
