*more here*

ezs commentary: This. is. illegal.  Or it would be, given Russia's byzantine code of "laws".  Please e-mail Russia's consulate and express your outrage.  It might not seem like a lot, but every bit helps.

PS: I just sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin.  The tone was respectful, but VERY firm.  No matter where in the world you are, you can do likewise!
