High Speed Race in Moscow: Posh FSB Boys Show Off and Get Nailed to the Wall (Video)

If you are a FSB agent, it doesn’t mean you are ruler of the world

After the former-KGB agent Vladimir Putin ascended to the Russian presidency, it became even more prestigious to enroll in the Federal Security Service (FSB) Academy - a brilliant career lay just around the corner.

But after this year’s final exams, some graduates got cocky and decided to mark their graduation publicly.

The new FSB officers decided to show off their new status by organizing a race of expensive Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen jeeps around Moscow, then posting the video on YouTube.

This stupid move outraged the public and senior FSB officers. The Academy made it clear that it doesn’t tolerate such arrogant behavior from FSB agents.

From now on, these graduates will be showing off their coolness at the most remote borders of the Russian Federation (Kamchatka and Chukota regions).

This should teach them that in Russia you don’t abuse the public trust - especially if you’re in charge of public security.
