"Horrible police" Local police & Documents Tip by maxwell1

Local police & Documents, Moscow: 48 reviews and 25 photos

We saw somebody beating up an old lady and when we went to grab a police men, everyone stopped us saying the police will just make matters worse and ask for money. Around red square the police were constantly pouncing on student-aged tourists asking for passports and extracting bribes whenever possible. In a way, I prefer mofia-dominated Saint Petersburg to corrupt-police dominated Moscow as the mofia mostly leave tourists alone.
