Russian activist and performance artist Petr Davydtchenko was arrested after fulfilling a promise to eat a live bat outside of the European Parliament. The "Ozzy moment" was intended as an act of protest against what Petr calls an unjust distribution of the coronavirus vaccine.
Petr also has a large tattoo of the Pfizer company logo on his forehead. This is something he says "has come to represent false hope for millions of poor people around the world."
The Parliament press service said that "the Parliament is in no way associated with this distasteful and cruel event." Davydtchenko issued a statement in which he claims that manufacturers of coronavirus vaccines are deliberately preventing a fair distribution of them in order to prioritize profit.
