Russian President, Putin Unveils Latest Spy Drones Disguised As Birds

The Kremlin’s bizarre new spy drone is slightly bigger than a real snowy owl. The drone was created by military technicians from a unit set up by Putin. Its aim is to fool the enemy allowing the unmanned craft to sneak closer to key targets in war zones. A second drone – yet to be unveiled – is a mock falcon which even makes bird noises, it was reported. The owl drone is designed for reconnaissance in cold climates and uses lasers to target artillery and aircraft. After its sights have locked onto a target it can then be “taken out” by missiles, tanks and fighter jets. It is unclear if the bizarre drone was inspired by Harry Potter’s pet Hedwig as some are saying. However, a prototype was devised by students before it was seized on by Vladimir Putin’s military.

Sergei Mavrodi, MMM Founder Dies Of Heart Attack At 62

Russian businessman Sergei Mavrodi, whose MMM pyramid scheme deprived millions of Russians of their savings in the 1990s, has died of a heart attack, according to Russia media. Reports said the 62-year-old was rushed to the hospital late on March 25 with pain in his chest and died several hours later. Mavrodi’s MMM financial pyramid was a typical Ponzi scheme in which earlier investors receive their profits from subsequent investors. Mavrodi promised returns of 20 percent to 75 percent a month, as well as lotteries and bonuses for investors. As soon as the number of new clients stopped growing, the pyramid collapsed, causing huge financial losses for at least 10 million people, in some cases leaving them destitute. In 1994, Mavrodi was elected as a lawmaker, a decision he later sai...

Winter Olympics: Russian Curler Alexander Krushelnitsky In Doping Probe

Russian curling medallist Alexander Krushelnitsky has been charged with a doping offence at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The Court of Arbitration for Sport said it had “initiated a procedure” against the 25-year-old, who won bronze in the mixed doubles with his wife Anastasia Bryzgalova. He is suspected of testing positive for meldonium, which is designed to boost metabolism and endurance. It is the same drug that saw Maria Sharapova suspended from tennis in 2016. No hearing date has been set, but if it is confirmed that he took the drug it could affect Russian athletes’ chances of being allowed to march under their own flag at the closing ceremony. Krushelnitsky was not with his team on Monday. It is the second doping case of the Games in South Korea, after a Japanes...
