The drawing, which portrayed a kiss between Trump and Putin, on the American fast food restaurant Keulė Rūkė was vandalized with white paint a few weeks ago. In the updated version, the two politicians are no longer kissing but sharing a joint.

"More beautiful, more relevant and carrying a stronger message," the restaurant said on Facebook.

Painted in the Lithuanian capital, the graffiti resembles the famous painting on the Berlin Wall picturing the 1979 kiss between then Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East Germany's Communist regime leader Erich Honecker.

The piece of street art portraying Putin and Trump drew massive media attention, making headlines in BBC, CNN, Time, Washington Post and many other channels.
