You're reading: Azarov, Sex Shop And Rule Of Law

On Feb. 5, Azarov decided to take a trip to a supermarket located in the same prestigious Pechersk area as his spacious office. The visit itself was set up like a Potyomkin Village. It was announced in advance so that the icy streets where people broke their legs just a day before were cleaned up, price tags in the supermarket halved and cashiers all forced to come to work and smile, for once.

Azarov looked serious and regarded cheap cabbages with great attention. But despite the best effort of the multiple guards, one of the local visitors managed to shout over the freezer to catch the prime minister’s attention, and complained about the true state of affairs in the supermarket on the days that no big shot guests conducted show visits.

He also complained about a sex shop located near the supermarket entrance. On the way out, Azarov told the deputy mayor to take care of the shop. At night, the owner boxed up the love paraphernalia and the next day the kiosk was gone. The city authorities explained to the media that the place did not have proper documents to run legally.
