Animal Rights Activists Liberated 30,000 Minks At Once

A Russian Animal Rights Activists group "Animal Liberation Front" or "ALF" have made an extreme action in St. Petersburg region. They liberated 30,000 minks from the cages whom were held on the territory of the farm. They got inside the farm, crushed the fences and opened cages where 30 thousand minks were held. The animals ran away, only a small fraction of them were captured next day. The damaged caused by the ALF actions was estimated at $300,000.
The owners of the farm had to suspend all the workers of the farm, thus a whole village was left without a job. In a few days another group of "ALF" tried to penetrate to another farm of the same owners. They came to the farm on two light trucks and a few passenger cars, but the security service of the farm was able to repulse an attack. Here is the video made by "ALF" while their visit to the first farm:

Madonna Could be Bombed

Today, 12th of September, 2006 in Moscow is going to be a great show by Madonna. It has been said before that Madonna was very scared of her trip to Russia because she was threatened by anonymous people of Russian origin, demanding her to cancel the show, that’s why she wanted the security measures of the show to be extra high class ones. Two girls, two journalists of some Russian newspaper decided to check those
extra measures. They decided to make a fake alarm clock bomb and take it inside the show as much closer to the main arena as possible. They had to pass five security checks.   First they have got a big box and an alarm clock that they put inside. They made two of such fakes, put them in their bags and came to the “Luzhniki” concert hall – a big covered stadium in Moscow.

russian police on the streets of russia
254 Russian Police

Russian Police

In Russia police is not respected by citizens. People simply doesn’t love policemen and often don’t go to police for the help. And police pays back – they often break the laws themselves and policemen behave in not proper way. There is a lot of police on the street of Russia, one of the reasons is high crime rate, another reason is possibly the belief of authorities that if they have a numerous police at their disposal they can prevent any civil unrest. Because the police is huge in personnel they often hire people without a proper education to serve in police, just like in 3rd world countries, people without high moral principles and understanding that if they serve
as policemen they should serve and protect. Often they do absolutely contrary things. There is a Russian joke: a young man went to work as a policeman, but has not received his salary for quite a long period of time – a few months, so the senior officer asks him – “Why didn’t you get your salary yet?” and the young man replied: “What? I am supposed to get a salary? I though if I got a police uniform and a gun I now can get funding myself”. Sometimes it happens right like in this joke, the only difference that such policemen don’t forget to get their salaries.   This couple is from Ukraine
