Communists in St. Petersburg, Russia have failed in their bid to shut down a Sylvester Stallone art exhibition in the city.

A collection of Stallone's paintings have been gracing the walls of the city's prestigious State Russian Museum since Sunday (27Oct13), despite protests from local political leaders, who are opposed to the show.

A statement from officials at Leningrad's Communist Party reads: "For those who were born and raised in the Soviet Union, Rambo/Stallone will always be an embodiment of Cold War and the Us military machine, someone who kills countless Soviet soldiers and our Vietnamese comrades, a maniacal fighter against the so-called 'red threat'."

And leading St. Petersburg communist Sergei Malinkovich adds, "Stallone referred to our country as an evil empire, he was a soldier of (Ronald) Reagan. Renowned artists and characters of their paintings wouldn’t want to be placed next to daub by a Cold War relic, filled with hatred."

Museum bosses refused to acknowledge the protests and the exhibition is running as scheduled.
