    How taboo is orange in Russia?

    I know of the Orange Revolution, but is wearing orange in Russia really that bad? What have the Russian government/police been doing about it?

    Ukraine = not exactly unrelated to Russia.

    If you wear anything orange they will arrest you, rape you, then you will be stoned to death.

    Oh, DAspen, things are really bad around here. But the hope dies last! From my well-informed sources, I heard about secret alliance, called "The Orange Brotherhood". In their regular meetings deep in secret hideouts of Moscow metro they are wearing ORANGE railroad worker's vests, meditating over the best adages of George W. Bush, and, of course, consuming lots of oranges (spiced by huge dozes of TCDD, of course -- to develop resistance to this poison, taking into accound the high-probable event of inviting them to banquet in the gloomest FSB dungeons and forcibly feeding there with Agent Orange poisoned soup).

    Sorry. Just couldn't resist the temptation.

    If you wear orange in St Pete, most people will think you're a Dutch football fan. Nothing will happen to you.
