Something amiss

Each year from mid-November until the end of December the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen has a Christmas market with a heavy emphasis on the traditional Christmas things; Santa Claus, lots of Christmas decorations and the appropriate food. But something is amiss. At the entrance to Tivoli a drummer stands guard, announcing that not all is as it used to be. And he looks suspiciously Russian.
