By cool off, Dovgalyuk means pouring "about 30 liters of water mixed with 6 liters of bleach" into the laps of any man she catches with his legs too wide on public transportation.

Anna Dovgalyuk has filmed herself splashing a combination of bleach and water on men's crotches on St Petersburg metro underground train in Russian Federation to protest manspreading.

The Daily Mail reports that Anna Dovgalyuk is the young woman who denounces the "disgusting" act of manspreading in a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday.

So, she hit the metro with her solution and the reactions were priceless.

She claimed her video was dedicated "to all 'men" for whom manspreading is the norm.

The activist complains that manspreading is being "fought around the world - but hushed up here".

She said: "We not only cooled the manspreading down but also marked them with identification spots". "It eats colours in the fabric in a matter of minutes", Dovgalyuk said, adding that the stains create "identification spots" to show "which body part controls the behaviour of these men".

"Men demonstrating their alpha-manhood in the subway with women and children around deserve contempt", and that she was acting "on behalf of everyone who has to endure the manifestations of men declaring their macho qualities on public transportation."

Padma Lakshmi Says She Was Raped At 16 And Didn't Report It
Padma Lakshmi , 48, has opened up about a painful event in her life - the night she says she was raped by a boyfriend when she was just 16.

Critics asked how she was helping counter the menace of up skirting by flashing her undies.

Meanwhile, Russian news outlet Rosbalt has claimed that her video is a publicity stunt featuring paid actors - a claim Doygalyuk denies.

She said: 'I am a social activist who advocates for women's rights and against discrimination in any form'.

As detailed in the video, she claims she uses a mixture of six litres bleach to 30 litres of water, a concoction that is ensured to leave a permanent stain on any item of clothing.

"My action is absolutely real", she said.

Though the student activist is likely pleased with the attention her campaign has raised, not everyone is so supportive of the stunt.

But she said no commuters have sued her so far.
