Sounds strict, if they implement this fully,the jails will be packed,

Under the bill, pedestrians on Russian streets who are suspected of being drunk and refuse to be tested for blood alcohol content could face penalties ranging from a fine of 5,000 rubles ($100) to 15 days in jail.

It's insane.
It's also the elevation of minor morals, something people dissing major morals are prone to do.

Ahh fond memories.....I remember many , many moons ago after a heavy night at Hungry Duck .....I staggered outside looking for a taxi to take me home , bursting to get rid of some of the larger....having seen many Russians relieving them selves in public I decided to relive my self in a quite corner....got a tap on the shoulder , I was well and truly nicked....thought I would be fined but having realized I was a drunken foreigner they popped me in their Zhiguli and drove me home :)
