A representative of the southern Iranian seaport of Bushehr is complaining that Russian women working at the nuclear development plan there are corrupting local Iranians with their immodest dress.
Mahdi Mousavinejad was quoted by the ISNA news agency as saying the women have a “corrupting and negative impact” on the local population, even though they are being paid to dress in accordance with local custom – covered from head to toe while in public.
Russia is expected to hand the Bushehr plant over to Iranian engineers in the middle of 2013.
