Taking Photos Outlawed in St. Petersburg Metro

St. Petersburg’s City Hall has just passed a law prohibiting the use of photo- and video-equipment on the city’s metro system.

      Such restriction was in force till 2009, then it was abrogated. Earlier only equipement with flash was banned. Now it concerns  all photo and video devices. The reason of the law's return is still unclear. The officials say they have re-introduced the ban for safety reasons, as the city's metro system is not only means of transportation, but also an object of civil defence.

      Now, anyone caught violating the ban will be fined 3,000 roubles ($100).

      The ban has displeased many citizens. Critics say this will disappoint tourists coming to St. Petersburg.
