29 Watermelon War

Watermelon War

In our recent publications we told about how Russia celebrates the day of Russian airborne troops, called "VDV day", when some of drunk paratroopers swim in the fountains and sometimes can even beat people. So happened in Lipetsk city, when the big group of celebratings came to the central market. Thought they didn't discover any
Azerbaijan owners of the counters, they started to smash up all the watermelons. Following this incident, the victims became Russian saleswomen, which now have to pay large compensation for the spoilt goods. And what's about the police, they simply didn't prevent the lawbreakers from the rampage.

VDV Day. The Celebration of Russian Airborne Troops

On the 2nd of August Russia celebrates the day of Russian airborne troops. It's called "VDV day". VDV is abbreviation of vozdushno-desantnie voiska (airborne troops in Russian). During that celebration all paratroopers put on their uniform or striped vests, gather in public places (In Moscow, for example, in Gorky park), drink much alcohol and traditionally swim in the fountains (where
swimming is traditionally forbidden) and shout "for VDV!!!". Sometimes drunk troopers can get into confrontation with militia or security guards and also beat people from the south countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States or just those people who haven't served in the army. On the pictures below one can see the VDV celebration nowadays.
