Rules when photographing Moscow Mayor

Corps assigned to cover Moscow Mayor Yurii Luzhkov must observe a number of rules established by the mayoral administration’s press service. Journalists are forbidden to photograph Mr Luzhkov from behind or to photograph his bald “spot” — an expanse that extends from his eyebrows almost all the way to the back of his neck — or use flashes in front of him. They also are not allowed to ask any unauthorised questions. To enforce these rules, the press service relies on the 15 members of the Federal Protection Service who are assigned to protect Mr Luzhkov. Source:
