So my girlfriend will be living in Moscow for the next few months and I wanted to get her a can of pepper spray before she leaves. Does anyone know the law on this one? Is it legal in Russia?
"In Russia pepper sprays are classified as a self-defence device (not a weapon) and can be carried by anyone over 18. Usage against humans is legal. OC is not the only agent used, CS, CR, PAM (МПК) and (rarely) CN are also perfectly legal and highly popular."
