A 23 year old woman has been fined for running down Lenin Avenue in Tomsk in sub-zero temperatures - wearing only her swim suit.
Rumours abound over the motive. Some say she or her partner lost a game of cards. Others that it was a bet or a dare to impress friends
The near-naked woman ran from outside the The Youth Theater to Lenin Square.
'We found details on the drivers who recorded the video, contacted them, and identified the girl who was running,' said Dmitry Amelin from the traffic police.
'It turned out that the race took place on the 28 February. The girl had to pay a 200 rouble fine for the traffic rule violation.
'The amount, of course, is quite small. But the act itself can influence her future career: for example, if the girl wants to get a job in the law enforcement bodies or the court, she won't be able to do it.'
The woman promised not to repeat her jog.
'Our goal was not to understand why she behaved the way she did, but to prevent similar violations in future. People need to know that one can be punished for such behaviour'.
Rumours abound over the motive. Some say she or her partner lost a game of cards. Others that it was a bet or a dare to impress friends.
