All Fur Coats and No Knickers

This really is a case of all fur coats and no knickers, because at this time of year, both Russians and Kazaks wear their warmest clothes, which are often real fur (No PC qualms about fur here) .... but with the Kazakh ban on lace, its now 'sans culottes en dentelle' for the ladies, as the production, import, and sale of lace underwear will be stopped in July 2014 in Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus, under a Moscow-led Customs Union. The regulation was originally approved way back in 2011, but has not been enforced until now.

However the proud ladies of the land of ice are very upset over this, and despite the low temperatures in places such as Astana, Kazakhstan (-5c on the 20th February), the ladies have protested, often waving their 'lacies' over their heads (which beats burning their bras in those temperatures).... but sadly, and rather predictably in this part of the world, some of the ladies have been arrested in Kazakhstan, and no doubt a few will have been hurt.

Kazak  ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da!

Officials say the reason for this 'lace' ban is that 'lace does not absorb enough moisture', and its therefore a health concern, but the suggestion is that its really to back up local producers of cotton undergarments ..... but the ladies may be made of sterner stuff than the officials, so watch the fur fly as the ban date nears.
