Nevsky prospect in St. Petersburg is attacked by pickpockets! In the daylight they rob people in the public transport, in cafes, stores, in the crowd, in the underground, anywhere ... They do it openly, impudently,
impertinently. Probably the worse situation is only somewhere in the ghetto of New York, or in the slums of Rio de Janeiro... And this is Nevsky - the main street of the northern capital of Russia!
