Photo: “Russians Don’t Surrender!”

Earlier today we noted that the mayor’s office and local politicians were flabbergasted at Russians’ refusal to leave Brighton Beach, despite mandatory evacuation orders. Police have been deployed in force to the area, ushering residents to their homes and off the streets. The local pols blamed language barriers. But they were wrong. This sign makes clear why they really wouldn’t leave:

“Russians Don’t Surrender.”

Not to hurricanes. Not to American television audiences. Not to anything.
