Skip to comments.Russian Policewomen to Be Disciplined for Wearing Short Skirts

The Interior Ministry has launched a crackdown to combat the trend toward shrinking hemlines witnessed among Russia's female police officers, Izvestia reported Monday.
The ministry imposed a ban against all uniform modifications in response to the growing number of shortened skirts worn by women, and the tendency of their male counterparts to hack off their shirt sleeves.
In addition to modifications, police are now prohibited from mixing their uniforms with civilian clothing, and from wearing wrinkled items, Izvestia reported, citing a decree handed down by Deputy Interior Minister Sergei Gerasimov to all heads of departments.
Gerasimov warned that such liberties taken with police uniforms only serve to undermine the authority of the Interior Ministry, and to discredit the police force as a whole.
"When you meet people, the first thing you see is their clothing, and for a police officer fulfilling his duties, it is crucial to have a tidy and neat appearance. From time to time, we have seen instances of officers improperly wearing their uniforms. Heads [of departments] must pay more attention to the appearance of their subordinates," Gerasimov was quoted by Izvestia as having said in the decree.
Gerasimov encouraged all police officers to reacquaint themselves with and strictly adhere to uniform requirements, and ordered department heads to inspect officer attire before the start of shifts each day.
Mikhail Pashkin, chairman of the coordination council of the police officers' union, said in comments to Izvestia that police officers were not to blame for untidy clothing. The complaints listed by Gerasimov stemmed from the failure of the Interior Ministry to provide enough dressing rooms for police.
As for the problem of female officers shortening their skirts, Pashkin said he did not see any reason to complain.
"Perhaps the girls want to get married. Incidentally, they are thinking about the demographic situation," Pashkin said.
Who is in charge of the police in Russia? The illegitimate son of Robert Palmer and Muammar Gaddafi?
I don’t know but I think I’ve been a very bad boy.
Chasing perps in high heels, always a bad strategy. They look more like prostitutes than police. LOL!
Are those SHOES regulation?
That officer on the right has BEAUTIFUL legs and can arrest me ANY time. I might just start a scuffle with her. LOL
Anyway, it's short-lived. Soon enough we will be back in the Russian nine month winter.
There is no fun left in being arrested, anymore.
This looks like a put on.
Donning flame suit:
Whenever I go on Asian airlines almost every girl is above average and I’d say 1/3 are alllmost model material.
And they’re NICE.
When I go on US airlines they’re older and fat. And nasty.
And it’s a guarantee that the one or two guys are rolling their eyes, scoffing, mincing around with their butts out and flapping their arms around.
WHAT GIVES ON US AIRLINES —dayum.
They are definitely not guilty!
Oh yeah they need to be disciplined.
If they want to arrest me, I will resist.
But not TOO much.
Slap the cuffs on me, Baby, and take me away.
Resist we much!
If Russian police women beat you to a pulp would they still be guilty?
