18 Illegal Market In A Moscow Subway Station

Illegal Market In A Moscow Subway Station

Posted on March 3, 2011 by team

Real illegal market functions in one of the Moscow subway stations: drugs, forged documents (especially passports of the Russian Federation), diploma papers, school leaving certificates, driving licences and other services are easily rendered here.

It is very difficult to shoot the very moment of the deal as the market infrastructure includes observers and courriers, a man with a camera gets noticed very fast.

These people have their own system of signs.

Police doesn’t want to notice the “market”.

The Moscow subway was chosen for the ” forgery office” not randomly, despite being overcrowded it is a safe place where people don’t pay attention to anyone except themselves and their own hurries.

If something goes wrong special women with large bags, who “hurry” somewhere, come to the stage – they create clamour giving a chance for the vendors to vanish.

    It’s true these kind of people are everywhere all over the World. As soon as they’re arrested, some more will take their place without missing a step.

    Cool now I know how to become a Russian citizen for a few hundred rubles.

    Rusian police is just one more thing a regular law abiding citizen has to feed. Unfortunately other countries in Eastern Europe are much worse. I personally saw how a hang of criminals were harassing passengers and demandibg money in Bratislaca railway station in the middle of the day. The police just looked the other way.

    and more “churkas” is “illegal market with drugs, forged documents diploma papers, school leaving certificates, driving licences and other services”

    I didn’t get from these photos – what kind of illegal activity was shown there? Author of this topic is a typical Russian chauvinist who just can’t stand any non-Russian faces, non-Russian speech, non-Russian behavior. All these makes them berserk. I recommend everybody to read one book – Kalpana Sahni “Crucifying the Orient – Russian Orientalism and the Colonization of Caucasus and Central Asia” White Orchid Press, 1997

    I just saw Kavkaz hanging out in the Metro. They could have taken a picture of me walking through the Moscow Metro and say I was an assassin or on my way to a meeting for criminal purposes or something. Which metro station is this? I can’t see the special women with large bags. Pictures!

    Now I’m first, though.

  15. Akskl says:

    Oops, now I can see the comments,and I’m not the first, of course. I used other computer today.
