It's not just police uniforms some of the Russian government is worried about.
Supposedly, in July it will become illegal to sell lace underwear. Russia has also recently passed laws prohibiting profanity in the arts, including mainstream movies, which will also supposedly take effect in July. Of course, the impression I have is that lots of ridiculous laws get passed, and then everyone treats them about the same way they treat traffic speed laws - breaks them and tries to avoid getting caught.
Wow. How is this even an issue? What police officer would even consider wearing heels and a skirt to work in? Things must be much more different for police in Russia than here in the States, because I'm a cop and I cannot fathom a female patrol officer trying to do her job with high heels and a skirt...
