This paper discusses various adaptations and strategies developed by post-Soviet Russians in response to the failure of the police. It does so based on findings derived from an empirical study carried out by the author. A number of survival techniques utilised by citizens to compensate for dysfunctional policing is outlined, and dangers triggered by these coping strategies are highlighted.
