Robots, Policemen & Pilots get creative to mark Int'l Women’s Day in Russia

While flowers and chocolate are in abundance in Russia, which is marking International Women’s Day with public holiday and celebrations, some are coming up with quite unconventional ways to make their loved ones smile.

On March 8, millions of Russians rush to markets and shops to get fresh flowers, a traditional part of festive atmosphere of the day. Even the walls of Kremlin sported a holiday greeting this year.

There were those, however, who decided to bring about the holiday spirit early – including police officers seemingly taking part in a nationwide flash mob.

One of the iconic Kremlin walls has been spiced up with a giant light projection featuring a bouquet of red, white, and blue flowers, shaped to form the map of Russia. “To you, our beloved ones!” the visual postcard says.

2:46, Russia is not communist.Even before the fall of the Soviet USSR
they were getting away from it. The Russian Federation is more of a democratic Republic than the USA. And a lot less corrupt and immoral.
