A man was given suspended sentence for uploading cartoon but court later realised their blunder and cartoon has now been removed from banned list
Donald Duck has been cleared of extremism in Russia after a court ordered the removal of an Oscar-winning wartime cartoon from a banned list.
The eight-minute 'Der Fuehrer's Face', made in 1943, featured Donald Duck in a nightmare setting, working at a munitions factory in Nazi Germany.
It served as a warning to how controlling and horrendous life could be under Hitler, before Donald snapped out of his terrifying dream and was proud to be a citizen of the United States.
Despite its anti-Nazi propaganda, that was deemed irrelevant in Vladimir Putin's country where publishing any Nazi symbol - such as the swastika in the cartoon - is regarded as illegal.
