In the song, the musician ironically reasons why riot policemen wear black masks. According to thee author presumes that they may feel ‘ashamed’ of battering the unarmed and defenseless and then giving false evidence against them. However, when a policeman stands before God, the mask will not save him, and the excuse that he was just ‘following the orders’ will not be accepted, Andrey Makarevich warns.

As reported earlier, the Moscow police are conducting the searches over ‘organizing mass disorders’ in the city. The criminal case was initiated after Saturday’s rally staged by the opposition. During the dispersal of the protesters, law enforcers used batons and stun guns and grabbed 1,388 people.
