Mostly cynicism based on Russian testimony + experience

Mostly cynicism based on Russian testimony with a little bit of experience thrown in.

I've been to Russia every year for ten years, and have never been in a motor altercation but I hear the stories of what jerks the militia are.

I was yelled at by a militiaman for no reason once; he simply wanted me to move instead of just standing there. And he said so with a swear between each word.

Oh, they changed their names to "police" as a P.R. thing, but they still act like total jerks.
