 A massive banner praising Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “peacemaker” was hung from the Manhattan Bridge on Thursday afternoon.

At around 1:45 p.m., a 20 foot by 30 foot banner, featuring a photo of Putin with Russian and Syrian flags as the background was hung over the Brooklyn side of the bridge.
Over an hour later, at around 3 p.m., the banner was removed by city officials, but not before plenty of onlookers grabbed photos to post on social media.

This just dropped on the Manhattan Bridge. Living in some weird and scary times.
Witnesses told the New York Post that they saw two men hanging it.

We were just at our desks, we have some large windows from our office and we just saw it going up,” Quinn Formel, 27, told The Post.
“These two guys … they were struggling for a little bit, but eventually got it [the banner] up,” he said. “We realized it was Putin and it was the Russian flag and it said ‘peacemaker’ and then after that we were all confused about what this is supposed to be saying or expressing — it’s not very clear.” The New York Police Department does not have anyone in custody and are currently reviewing surveillance footage in an attempt to find the culprits.
