The ideal police seriously ensure that the world is governed by the rule of law, while the actual police regard the rule of law as nothing.
The World Cup reminds us that in the future good Russia may appear (as if from heaven) the ideal police, but see the rules of the game as the reality of the police, but Zhen ri destroy our world.
