Ukrainian woman uses underwear as face mask after service denied at post office
May 27, 2020 – NY Post / Fox News
A Ukrainian woman has gone viral for removing her panties and wearing them as a face mask after being refused service at a post office, according to a report.
The woman was caught pulling off the stunt on surveillance footage at the Nova Posha post office in Kiev, where she walked up to the counter without a face covering, the Sun reported.
When told that she would not be provided service without a required mask, the flustered woman removed her pants in front of stunned customers — then took off her white panties and placed them over her face.
Witnesses said the woman is a mother of two who was unhappy with safety measures imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Well, she found a way around it,” one person said in a social media post. “No one has banned the use of panties instead of a mask yet!”
Another user said: “She was lucky she wasn’t wearing a thong that day, otherwise the idea would have failed!”
The video was posted online by a postal employee who now faces punishment for sharing the footage.
In April, Ukrainian authorities ordered all residents to carry an ID and wear a mask in public.
