Moscovian undercover police dressed in drag attacked gay rights demonstrators in newly dubbed Pink Square near the Kremlin.
Forty demonstrators were arrested and charged with independence of spirit, one of the crimes that once sent millions to the Gulag and was supposedly repealed after the fall of Soviet communism.
Moscow police chief,K.G.B. Stalinophilesky explained that citizens should check the commandments on the barndoor.comrade every morning to see any recent changes in the rights and responsibilities in the workers' paradise.
One of the greatest surprises in the mass arrest was the incarceration of President Medeved and Prime Minister Putin. Police officials offered copious apologies and deep reverential bows of penitence not seen since the days of the Tsars and the dictatorship of the Russian Orthodox hierarchical proletariat.
After being released from one of the very commodious Moscow City jail cells, the relieved couple said that they were mistakenly swept up in the police action while doing some weekend purse shopping.
