Semi-N*ked Trump Look-A-Like 'Walked' Around St Petersburg City

A bizarre video showing a semi-naked Donald Trump look-a-like being 'walked' around on a dog lead has been banned from YouTube .

The footage - published in local media - shows oligarch Aleksandr Donskoy parading the Trump-style 'dog' around the city in St Petersburg.

The man, stripped to the waist and wearing a blond wig and a rubber Trump mask, snarls at passers by as Donskoy urges him: "Bite! Bite!"

As shoppers and office workers start to laugh at the spectacle, Donskoy leads the bogus hound to his car where he barks at people through the window.

Donskoy - who dubbed his stunt 'Trump, Heel!' - said: "The politician, who has given people great hope - not only in my country, but also the majority of Russians, Americans and residents of many other countries - was not able to keep his promises and follow his principles."

The footage was initially available on YouTube, but it was later taken down, with a message saying: "This video has been removed for violating YouTube's policy on harassment and bullying."

Donskoy - once the he Mayor of the northern Russian city Arkhangelsk - is known in Russia for his weird video stunts.
