Police joined the 'Theatre Against Stress' in Kemerovo on Sunday to 'reduce stress and cope with negative emotions' for those who have served in 'hot spots'.

Georgy Demkin, the head of 'Salsa Cubana Kemerovo' told us: 'It was great, it was truly incendiary. Everyone got involved because the dance moves were simple, the music was lively and cheerful, so it all was great fun and people were happy to participate'. 

'I'd say that Siberians are a bit less outgoing than people in the southern regions, but step by step and with the help of hot Latin rhythms they all melted'. 

He said: 'There is a long story of cooperation between the city police and the theatre that created this rehabilitation programme. Police is happy to be visiting the theatre's perfomances, and no matter if they just watch them or take part is it a very good therapy'.
