A drama shook Yekaterinburg as two bus passengers started a quarrel about a current hotly disputed reform
A drama shook Yekaterinburg, the Urals' foremost city, as two bus passengers started a quarrel about a current hotly disputed reform. It replaced welfare privileges by money grants that have turned out inadequate. A fruitless, though impassioned, dispute lasted two stops, and finished with one quarreler shooting a pneumatic pistol at his opponent, a woman who was approving the reform. He missed, and the bullet scratched the cheek of another woman, standing next to the desired victim. The bus driver was out to take the shooter to the nearest police precinct but changed his mind, for some reason. Regions.ru provincial news agency retells the accident with references to eyewitness accounts. An officer of a locally stationed military unit invented another spectacular form of protest against the reform, which has robbed soldiers of free travel. He wrote "Stowaway" in huge letters on the back of his uniform coat. When reporters asked him why he had chosen to thus spoil his uniform, the captain, who introduced himself as Vladimir, said that was a way to express his opinion of Russian officers' predicament. "Traffic conductors are earning more than I do-that after I spent the best years of my life with the Russian Army!" he snapped. Only few passengers smile as they see his inscription, and conductors know better than confronting him, said Vladimir
