Northeast Network (东北新闻网) is a specialized news website under the leadership of the Liaoning Provincial Party Committee and provincal government, directed by the Provincial Party Committee's Propaganda Department... It is a battlefront for propaganda and ideological work.
The image you see here is from Northeast Network's sports section, which is always at the vanguard of propaganda and ideological work. The photo is from a huge gallery entitled 'Naked portraits of Russian gymnasts'.
