Comrade Barack banned in Russia

Comrade Barack Hussein Obama has been banned from numerous business establishments in Russia - including the above restaurant in Moscow - in response to sanctions he imposed on Russian officials as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine's Crimea region (Hat Tip: Jack W via Blur Brain).
One of the first to appear online was a store selling honey, declaring “President Obama is banned from entering the shop.”
Since then, the movement has taken off online, with others holding similar signs up declaring “SANCTIONS” in capital letters.
“Deputy Chair of the Deputy Committee Buldin A.B. declares that President  Barack Obama is deprived of the right to be attended to by the Kraasnodarski Krai Assembly on questions of tourism etc,” one sign read.
While many of the signs appear to be posted in jest (“President Obama and Congressmen are deprived of the right to use the toilet,” another sign said), some seem quite serious.
“Given the  US position on the situation around Crimea, I hereby advise that Barack Obama and members of the US government and Congress will be denied any legal assistance.  This is indefinite,” a lawyer posted on his office door.
In another, a sour-faced woman held up a tablet computer with a message warning that Obama cannot come within 40 meters (just over 131 feet).
Perhaps recognizing that the “sanctions” notices held no weight, others are clearly mocking the signs.
“US President Barak Obama, Congress members and all the (former US Ambassador to Russia Michael) McFauls CANNOT: sit on our ottomans, keep information on our hard disc, link up to our wi-fi, use our coffee machine, dispose of their sanctions in our urinal, look through the following file: \UserMilenaFotoKorporativAdskiyDancing, feed biscuits to our hamster Mikhailich,” wrote another.
Maybe they re-set relations again? Hmmm.
