Strange Superhero Defends St. Petersburg from Rudeness

St. Petersburg has a new hero – a strange young man, who calls himself a Petersburg-Man. In all probability, he was created by the initiative group of students from the St. Petersburg State University of Culture and Arts, Alexei Kharchenko, Ruslan Petrov and Vadim Sudakov. 

      Everything started when Alexei Kharchenko finally had enough of his fellow city dwellers' inconsiderate and rude behavior, so he decided to take matters into his own hands, together with some likeminded friends. But given the Northern Capital’s residents' stubborn refusal to play nice, Kharchenko decided that injecting a little civility into the busy metropolis was going to take a superhuman effort – and so Petersburg-Man was born.

      Though the new superhero doesn't have any super powers or a Bat-mobile, he considers his mission as heroic, because he fights with peoples' boorishness, ignorance, disrespect and these enemies are way more dangerous than any monsters.

      In particular, now the Petersburg-Man tries to teach the people not to throw their cigarette butts on the footpath. In winter he plans to fight with icicles, ice crusts and irresponsibility of public utilities for the city's winter cleaning.

      The Peterburg-Man can be easily recognized by his red cloack, a service cap and St. Petersburg's emblem on his chest. The superhero said he had found these things in one of the city's souvenir shops.

      The Peterburg-Man has called on people to begin replicating his heroic feats. “Everyone of us can help carry an old lady’s bag,” Komsomolskaya Pravda quoted Kharchenko as saying. “Everyone can approach a man sitting on transport while an old woman stands nearby and say ‘what the hell are you sitting for? Get up and give your spot up," he said.

        Everyone can follow the Peterburg-Man's adventures through his YouTube channel, unfortunately, only in Russian now.
