No kissing in Moscow !
Moscow authorities are planning to ban kissing in public places.
The BBC News web site reported that the kissing ban could even extend to lawfully wedded spouses, according to Moscow newspaper, Stolichnaya Vechernyaya Gazeta .
Moscow authorities are said to be considering a whole range of penalties ranging from fines to "temporary detention in jail".
Human rights campaigner Valeryia Novodvorskaya is said to be planning a stiff upper lip stance. She is quoted as saying : If the mayor's office is indeed drafting such resolution, I will from now on spend my days kissing nice people in public places - simply out of principle. I invite all Moscovites to do the same".
