Anyone can now take a free ride in the Moscow subway by proving their good physical shape. A passenger will be allowed to ride the Moscow subway for free, if he or she makes 30 sit-ups.
A special machine was installed on Vystavochnaya subway station on Friday, at 16:00. The machine sells tickets for sit-up exercises. The sports novelty was presented by Olympic champion Alexei Nemov and Elena Zamolodchikova.
One subway ride will thus cost 30 sit-ups, rather than 30 rubles (90 cents). A special device will count the number of performed sit-ups. The system will work before December 4.
This problem is not limited to the situation with the "whale prison" in Russia's Far East, because many people buy tickets to go to oceanariums and turn a blind eye to the problem
