A Russian man has been arrested and hospitalised after nailing his testicles to cobblestones in the icononic Red Square in Moscow.

Pyotr Pavlensky, a performance artist, stripped naked before performing the gruesome act of self-mutilation near to Lenin’s mausoleum in protest to what he believes is Russia’s descent into a Putin-led police state.
