No swearing please, we're Russian.

A group of Russian senators is backing new legislation to ban swearing in public as part of a Kremlin-backed drive to clean up Russia's morals.
Good luck enforcing that one, fellas. I'm told that Russian is a fantastic language for swearing and that they like to make the most of it.
The law would be based on an existing scheme in the Russian region of Belgorod where police hand out on-the-spot fines for anyone overheard using foul language in public.
The fines there range from 500 roubles (£10) to 1,500 roubles (£30).
What? Why?
People heard cursing in front of children are fined the most.
Ah, should have guessed. To paraphrase Sting, the Russians think of the chiiiiiildren too.
