5 Russian Laws that Foreigners Might Find Absurd


Russian lawmakers are proposing insane bills like to ban: McDonald’s, smoking for women under 40, rock music and treasure hunting. While some of the bills may not pass, others are likely to become a law. Below is a short list of recent actual regulations.

5. As of July 2014, a law came into force that bans the use of profanity in theaters, film and other cultural events. Russian bloggers are forbidden to use profanity as well. Offenders will face fines.


4. In June 2013, Russia received international criticism for enacting an anti-gay law, which purportedly was to prevent distribution of “non-traditional sexual relationships” ideas among minors.

3. President Barack Obama is banned from entering Chechnya.


2. It is illegal to drive a dirty car in the city of Chelyabinsk. Driving a dirty car can get you fined up to 2000 rubles (about $62).


1. Sale, import and production of lace panties is prohibited. Allegedly, lace women underwear does not comply with technical requirements adopted in Russia.

  1. These laws are not fully true, but close 🙂 Last one is not a law. You can buy lace women underwear everywhere, it is not illegal. A few years ago one russian politician just proposed for consideration such case. But it was not accepted, my thinking it was his little promo.

    Number two, about dirty cars. It exists, but not only in Chelyabinsk. I have to say this law does not work at all. Only your license plate must be not dirty.

    All others seems to be true 🙂

  2. I am an American who feels that Putin is smarter than Obama.

    Granted, I may not agree with everything Putin has done, but he really has what Obama lacks which happens to be a brain and high intelligence.

    I can even see why Putin cannot stand Obama.

    I do find it hilarious that Obama is banned from Chechnya.

    I think it would be funny if Russia banned Obama completely, not to mention cool.

    Putin, if you are reading this, I think you know that you are smarter than Obama.

    • Fully agreed) They`re fallen civilization. By the way, what is this awesome music in this antigay clip? XD I cannot find it anywhere…

  3. Hey! MADSON check your grammar. It should be OBAMA IS SMARTER “THAN” VLADIMIR PUTIN!!
