One of Vladimir Putin's biggest critics, Russian politician Alexei Navalny, has had bright green liquid thrown over him during a visit to Siberia.
Navalny, who wants to stand against Putin in next year's presidential elections, laughed off the attack today, tweeting: 'I will be opening a headquarters in Barnaul as if I am from the film The Mask! Cool. Even my teeth are green!'
