    I need to make sure that these are correct, too!

    Sit down here on the curb! (the concrete gutter at the edge of the road)

    Сидите здесь на обочине!


    Put your hands behind your back!

    Руки за спину!

    Руки за спину! Yes, ok. Btw, it's pronounced [з́аспину]

    По таким коммандам не так ли, что глагол чаще в инфинитивной форме или даже без глагола? Сесть! Лечь на пол! Руки на голову!

    Команды, они такие... Всё должно быть жёстким, ёмким, кратким.

    По-моему, должно быть "Руки за голову!"

    EDIT: I just reread the earlier posts. Apparently I have answered needlessly. It seems that there is some debate over на and за.
    So, руки заспину is still correct?

    "Руки за спину" is correct, а что именно в таких случаях говорят омоновцы, я не знаю.

    So, more things to say that are not exactly "conversational Russian".

    The way to say "shoot" as in........

    "Put your weapons down or you will be shot"

    "Put your weapons down or I will shoot."

    What is the usual way to say this?
    Is it normal to say "Lower your weapons" or "Drop your weapoms" or "put down your weapons"?

    Подавите ваше оружие, или я буду стрелять
    Is that correct or does it sound stupid?

    "Подавите" doesn't work here. Without the context it's even unclear what are you trying to say (подарите, положите etc. comes to mind).

    I'd suggest:
    "Бросьте/бросайте оружие" or "опустите оружие" (if you want them not to drop the guns on the floor but just to lower them so they are not aimed at you).

    But I think it's more natural and perfectly understandable to just shout "Оружие на землю!". There are no time for pleasantries or extrawords during or before the firefight. And that you're going to shoot otherwise is clear without saying.

    Thanks, This is exactly the context that I needed. It is interesting that Russians make reference to the "ground" in this situation and that English usually just say "Drop".

    Maybe
    Бросьте оружие или буду застрелить!
    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    You also may say "Бросить оружие!" (no ground here )

    Бросьте оружие или я буду стрелять!

    Брось оружие, иначе я тебя растреляю.

    Кстати, "расстреляю" пишется с двумя "с".

    "Расстреляю" sounds very formaly, like he will be shot in an official ceremony. Просто "буду стрелять" или "я стреляю".

    Более естественные варианты:

    Брось оружие, иначе стреляю.
    Брось оружие, или я стреляю.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!
