Russian riot policemen rescue football fan out of Griboyedov Canal
The happy fans were celebrating Russia’s victory over Egypt.
The incident occurred last night after the match between the national teams of Russia and Egypt during the 2018 World Cup.
One of the fans was walking along the embankment of the Griboyedov Canal from the Konyushennaya Square towards Nevsky Prospect when he thought it was a good idea to take a swim and jumped into the water. According to witnesses, he was very drunk that night.
The man was floating on his back not far from the embankment fence and would unlikely be able to get out when he got tired, given his condition. A crowd of people was there filming it. One of the videos was later uploaded to a popular video hosting website.
The witnesses chose not to wait for a tragic outcome and called the law enforcement officers who were on duty nearby. The rescue operation was successful. The riot officers were rewarded with applause, and the rescued swimmer went off to do whatever he planned on doing.

“Waiting for FSB operatives in Prilepin’s cottage.” Tashkent in jeopardy after death of DPR President?
After the murder of the Head of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and hasty departure of his closest associate Aleksander Timofeev to Russia, an Interim Commission of the DRP Parliament has been established to determine damages sustained by legal entities and individuals due to unlawful actions of the Ministry of Revenues and Taxation. Aleksander Timofeev (Tashkent) was in charge of this ministry. Who is he and why the victims started filing complaints only now?
According to investigators, in May 2011, Vorotnikov ripped off several sock caps from uniformed policemen, threw them on to the roadway and stroked over the police officer's head twice during an unsanctioned rally.
