A Chuvash Woman Appeals to Spirits in the Red Square

 As the end of the world looms on, some people try to use Nature's powers and sorcery to postpone it. Today this was the case with a Chuvash woman who tried to appeal to spirits in front of the Lenin's Mausoleum in Red Square. 

      The police report that the woman spread small traditional mats in front of the Mausoleum and started recanting shamanic lines, praying to the powers-that-be to stop the end of the world for Russia. 

      Apparently, the police do not believe in extra-Natural forces: they called the ambulance and transported the woman, who happened to be unemployed, to a psychiatric clinic.
