Russians love celebrating. We at B&V have covered some of the most important holidays, and yet the Border Patrol Day somehow got left behind. Even though it is not a national holiday, you will always know it’s there. In fact, on May 28 city dwellers are genuinely scared of going out.
People are scared for a reason. On this day many of the former Border Patrol soldiers and officers would go out in the streets, drink their asses off, swim in fountains and do other nasty stuff in celebration of their brotherhood. Their union is truly precious. Photos of this year’s celebration are provided by RIA Novosti (Kirill Kalinnikov, Konstantin Rodikov), as provided by Livejournal user drugoi.
