Russian Air Cadets Under Fire For Wearing Bondage Gear In Viral Music Video

The majority of people can attest to doing something stupid while hanging out with friends at college. Whether it’s recording some drunken Snapchats of themselves dramatically singing along to Britney, or prank calling someone’s evil ex for the hell of it.

Now, a group of Russian air cadets are in serious trouble after recording a video of themselves dancing around in bondage gear.

The video was recorded at Vladimir Putin’s top pilot training college and features 15 cadets seductively dancing around in their underwear to ‘Satisfaction’ by DJ Benny Benassi, wearing what we can only assume is makeshift bondage gear and their pilot hats.

The video was initially titled “Why you better not fly on planes” but was renamed “How pilots entertain themselves between flights”.

After being posted to Russian social media, the provocative video received a mixed response. While many women praised the young men, others were outraged that such a prestigious institution would allow such behavior to take place within its walls.

The video itself is an imitation of the music video of ‘Satisfaction’ from 2002. The cadets can be seen holding bananas, power drills and ironing while thrusting along to the music at the Ulyanovsk Institute of Civil Aviation, a government-owned institution in Ulyanovsk.

Many critics of the video have claimed that it has brought “disgrace” on the institute and others have called for the men’s tutors to be fired.

One critic wrote, “Shame on civil aviation! They have turned their hostel into a brothel. Everyone who took part must be expelled so places are vacant for those who proudly wear a pilot’s uniform.”

An admirer, however, added, “I hope the teachers at Ulyanovsk Civil Aviation Institute will watch these young bottoms – and expel none of them. This is just beautiful.”

The Ulyanovsk Institute of Civil Aviation has been training pilots for 80 years and this is the first time that an incident like this has occurred.

Petr Timofeev, the head of campus administration, said to local publication 73online, “I honestly do not want to comment on the disgusting behavior of these cadets.”AD_CONTENT_2

“To be honest, I myself need to sit and digest what I’ve seen.”

“We are now dealing with this case; we are trying to evaluate everything inside and outside the school. Of course, all of this is very ugly.”

“It is so painful,” Timofeev continued. “We invest so much in these people and they behave in such a way.”

It’s not known what punishment the cadets could face for making the video, however, given Russia’s stance on homosexuality and the extremely provocative nature of the video, which was clearly recorded in jest, it is likely to be severe.

The video itself flies in the face of the Russian government who passed a law in 2013 that banned “gay propaganda”, especially as it was filmed at an institute which was founded by the notoriously homophobic Stalin in 1931.

The 2013 legislation was condemned by the European Court of Human Rights for reinforcing “stigma and prejudice” and encouraging homophobia.

To gain an insight into attitudes towards homosexuality in Russia, Pink News conducted a survey in December 2017. It revealed that regardless of age, the majority of Russians held homophobic beliefs.

Russia’s prejudiced view of the LGBTQ+ community have been criticized around the world and damaged its relationship with other countries.

The United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, made a point of speaking up on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community on a visit to Russia and praised those who were campaigning for change there at Plekhanov University.

“Met brave campaigners for LGBT, media freedoms & human rights in Russia,” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “A free, vibrant civil society is a vital component of any democracy.”

Given that the cadet’s behavior was not harming anyone, we hope that their punishment isn’t too severe. After all, it’s something most of us can relate to.
