After condemnation in social networks, organizers changed format of shorts festival in Makhachkala

The announcement of the shorts festival in a Makhachkala institution has caused a flood of criticism in social networks against the organizers, after which they announced a change in the format of the event, calling it a "festival of long shorts".

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in July 2021, Dagestani authorities drafted a memo for the guests coming to the region. In particular, it states that when visiting Dagestan, female tourists should not wear tight-fitting jeans and short skirts, and men are advised not to wear shorts.

The intention of the Makhachkala institution named "Dom.15" to hold a shorts festival sparked a strong reaction in social networks. The event was scheduled for September 3. After commentators have criticized the idea, the organizers deleted the post, the "Kavkaz.Realii"* outlet has reported.

"Initially we planned to have a farewell to the summer event on September 3; and we'll hold it. But we had to delete the post because of threats; there were a lot of them and they were too tough," a café source explained the situation to the outlet.

On August 31, a post entitled "Festival of Long Shorts" appeared on the Instagram** account of the "Dom.15" institution, in which "due to the hype around the topic of shorts," the organizers announced that a "gallery of various shorts" would be exhibited on September 3, and also invited people to discuss the topic.

*This is a Radio Liberty's project, which was included by the Russian Ministry of Justice into the register of foreign media outlets acting as foreign agents.

**On March 21, the Tverskoi Court of Moscow banned the activities of the "Meta" Company (which owns the Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp) in Russia in connection with extremist activities.
