When you see something spelled like "МИЛИЦИЯ" be sure it means POLICE in Russian. People used to see those a lot on Russian police cars etc. Of course, they used to see this in Russia, on Russian soil. Then, some enthusiasts tried to imagine what it would be like if the Russian POLICE went to chase the criminals on American soil. They tried to inject Russian speed police cars into action games such as GTA so that it could cruise the sunny palm beach landscapes
bearing cyrillic "МИЛИЦИЯ" logos. And it all seemed so unreal at that time. Unless recently. Here we go, full time operational Russian "МИЛИЦИЯ" Police car down there on the streets of LA. Equipped with a Russian-style full size blue light flasher (see on top of the car) and California road permits and car plates, this Russian police vehicle can successfully chase the suspects on the streets of SoCal.
