This would be illegal in Germany, due to wear of passive weapons (she wears a protective west).

@tpheine @jwildeboer I wondered about that vest. It's not the sort of thing most general public buy let alone teenagers. I wonder where it came from?

@dick_turpin @tpheine You can get them in a lot of military style shops, on AliExpress. And seeing how the riot police in Moscow has acted, wearing that vest almost seems a necessity IMHO ;) It also sends a strong message.

@tpheine Really? Instead of supporting her for her brave action you care about what she wears and how that would not be allowed in a completely different country? :(

@jwildeboer
Well, actually I was pointing towards a more oppressive country called Germany, where this impressive picture wouldn't even happen.
