Ukraine Girls Strip to Protest Hot Water Shut-off
Some Ukranian co-eds have chosen a novel way to draw attention to subpar living conditions.
Students in Ukraine have stripped off for a sexy protest against having their hot water switched off. Dozens of girls plunged into a fountain in Kiev’s Independence Square for a wet T-shirt demonstration with a difference. Equipped with soap and sponges, many stripped down to their bikinis or underwear.
The event drew a large crowd of onlookers.
The annual cut to the hot water supply is a common practice in Ukraine and many other post-Soviet states. It is often switched off for a month during summer to carry out maintenance work on the pipes.
The girls said they wanted to attract the authorities’ attention to the poor timing which has come in the middle of exams.
This strikes me as highly counterproductive. Perhaps if they used ugly girls?
