I know those guys!

Russian police is working on EURO-2008 – for the first time in history of football.

The guys were walking in the centre of Innsbruck, as I could see, accompanied by two local policemen. People shouted “Russland!”, took pictures with their mobile phones (on the photo below, right side), teenagers were excited, some adults even tried to talk to them.

They were photographed as often as some football fans in bizarre clothes.

Those policemen did look bizarre on that carnival. But in fact, it is a normal thing for a football competition nowadays. Well, perhaps, they were a bit too fat.
