The Future of the Ukraine Barbershop and the Policing Model
Ukraine’s interior ministry is the middle of the trouble. In a report to the attorney general, it wrote that there is»suspicion that a large number of workers employed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs were involved in organized crime». The internal affairs officer says that over a million are suspected of such activity, and,»Some of them have been detained.» Things don’t look good. I doubt that they would want to sabotage a vote for re-election if the picture of the ministry was in any way. And I am not sure that this will help . It could go the way of the other failures . I am sure that those two items would not work well together.
Is it possible to bring back the services of the Ukraine barbershop? How hard is it to restore a support that is crucial to the people of Ukraine? If nothing else, it is going to take the mood of the country and the government to get back on track.
If you’re thinking about a barbershop, make sure you understand how things work from the Ukranian barbering industry. A few years back, before there was corruption, many barbers worked outside the region, working with the population, and drawing on on their solutions from the cheaper barbershops, often down the road. That was before the arrival of the Russian invasion.
If you have read the book»Restless» by Christopher Caldwell, you will know about the different barbers who would come into the region, looking for different jobs. That’s part of what attracted these barbers – when they worked there they could get better service, and better prices. Now there are too many to do that.
Not long ago, local people reported that several of the new bars had put up signs that said»Russian barbers», since they wanted to grab the attention of the natives, and keep them coming back for more. This has upset the natives, who consider it a unpatriotic to discriminate against their own kind.
Ukrainians are looking to learn about barbers. They ought to be cautious not to begin seeing the barbershop as a symbol of European culture, because that is not
the case. But there is no use in attempting to turn back the clock, because that does not serve anyone.
Be certain you make time to check out the local barbershop. One of the first things you will see is the difference in the atmosphere. You will probably even see the difference in the overall look of the barbers themselves. There is going to be an air of change, and the barbershop will be there to welcome it.
There will be conflict over who is cutting the other way as well as hair around. There will be less rudeness. It is best for Ukraine’s people that things go back to normal.
Now, I must confess that I did not like the notion of visiting a barbershop myself. My friend and I traveled to a place and we were both pleased with our experience. I cannot say I am the exact same way. I will admit that I might like to visit Ukraine one day and meet a few of the guys who used to cut my own hair.
Please consider all of this. Please consider dreams and all of the hopes that the Ukraine barbershop will be back on track.
