What Goes on in the Mind of an OMON Riot Cop
by Dave Essel
If a demonstrator is carrying it, it’s got to be wrong. Right?
Sorry, mindless thug, but, surprised and approving as I am, you’re wrong from the point of view of your superiors!
Komsomolskaya Pravda reports that the police are now attempting to identify this guy so that he can be “severely punished”.
The photograph was taken during the Russian March on November 4th and, because it was fun, widely disseminated on Russia’s Live Journal.
Vladimir Pronin, chief of police for Moscow, responded to enquiries from Komsomolka that “no-one may desecrate the national flag, in particular representatives of the authorities.”
What a shame! It looked like the start of something good.
