Friday, February 23rd was Defenders of the Motherland Day (also known as Army Day, or Men’s Day). It is a national holiday across the whole of Russia, and should be a welcome breather for the Russian Army which, if President Putin’s recent speech in Munich is to be believed, should be preparing to defend their country against an imminent American invasion.
Anyway, as the brave soldiers of Russia were doubtlessly digging trenches around Volgagrad and St. Petersburgians were hoarding food, what were the youth of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk up to on this day of army celebration? Why, they were robbing the military hospital which sits behind my apartment of its fire extinguishers by climbing through a hole in the roof!
That’ll help the war effort!
