Well, just so you know young one. It is a prank. I have been to Russia several times. I love it there. I think the prank is hilarious in that it is not uncommon for police to do this on the street. As you can see, the first guy is in on the prank. The officer is not really hitting him. But then the folks who witness this hurriedly put on their masks because they are afraid the fake officer will hit them too.It is perfect Russian humor!LOLx10!!!

Issa a joke.
Lol, in Russia you never know. Those people taught it was legit. In the US that guy would get a punch, I think.
I know that's what made it so funny! Because this could happen. I kid you not. I was at the Kremlin during a huge protest against the invasion of Ukraine. Dude, me and my interpreter were walking past this group of guys and one dude just picked up another guy and body slammed him onto the pavement. We were out of there in a flash!!!
Jeez. Sounds pretty much like the police of my country.
Truthfully, I love Russia. I had a ball there.
If you go again wear your mask 😂
Haha!! Ok. That was a good one.
Haha!!! I mean the video is a joke. But having been in Moscow, I would have believed it. Officers over there are rough. . . to everyone!Did I tell you about the time when a Russian officer tried to bribe me?
