Young Russians Fight Against Drinking in Public

Like in most Western cities, young people in Moscow go to parks on Friday evening to drink, dance and have fun.

But a vigilante group calling itself “Lev Protiv” is trying to put an end to the phenomenon. Every Friday night, dozens of young men patrol public places and report people who drink to the police. Last Friday, they filled more than two police vans with “offenders”.

The need for honest and objective information on Russia is more relevant now than ever before!
