Kremlin Concludes Russian Men are Genetically Corrupt

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia is to create its first women-only traffic police unit because commanders believe they are less corrupt than men, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The male-dominated traffic police routinely forgive traffic violations in exchange for bribes. Many believe this culture helps make Russia's roads among the world's most dangerous: about 35,000 people are killed in accidents each year.

"The first female platoon of 26 traffic officers will patrol the centre of Volgograd (in southern Russia)," Izvestia daily quoted regional police chief Mikhail Tsukruk as saying.

"There is research which proves that women are not inclined to bribe-taking," the paper quoted him as saying. A few women already serve in the traffic police.

That is quite an insight. The logical extension of it is a female-only rule for the Russian presidency as well, which means Vladimir Putin is out on his ear. La Russophobe could not more heartily agree with this obviously scientific conclusion.
