  2. South Korea has fired warning shots at a Russian military jet that entered its airspace. The Ministry of National Defence in Seoul said it was the first time a Russian military aircraft had violated South Korean airspace. South Korean fighter jets were scrambled and fired warning shots in response to the intrusion. The Russian bomber reportedly entered South Korean airspace above the East Sea, near the Dokdo islands, twice this morning. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/breaking-south-korea-fires-warning-18667386
  3. For those of us who grew up playing Electronic Arts's Need For Speed series, this might bring back some good memories. Based on the Underground 2 installment of the series, a Russian Youtuber made a real-life version of the game for fun but it turns out cooler than expected. We won't describe what the video is like but we are pretty sure the one minute video might very well tempt you to dig that game out to play again.

  5. Mar 2016 - Russian Hero Who Died Liberating Palmyra http://sputniknews.com/russia/20160329/1037166120/russian-hero-palmyra-named-father.html The Russian Special Forces officer who was killed during the operation to liberate Palmyra, Syria from the Daesh (ISIS) terrorist group has been named as 25-year-old Alexander Prokhorenko.

An unconfirmed radio comm transcript captured the final moment from his request: http://www.worldinwar.eu/russian-special-forces-commando-last-words-transcript-the-offensive-on-palmyra-25-03-2016 "I am surrounded, they are outside, I don’t want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform. I want to die with dignity and take all these b**tards with me. please my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way..." His wife of 18 months, who is now pregnant, thought her husband had die in a military accident.

In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up - or about to be - with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control."
  7. Egypt's Prime Minister says a Russian civilian plane has crashed in central Sinai. The Airbus A-321 was carrying 224 passengers and crew. Confusion remains over where contact was lost with the plane, which was traveling from Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheik to St Petersburg in Russia. AFP reported that it went missing over Sinai, while other sources suggested contact was lost in Cypriot airspace. The plane was carrying 217 passengers - 17 of them children - and seven crew, according to RIA news agency. The jetliner was operated by Russian carrier Kogalymavia - which also trades by the names Kolavia and Metrojet - and most of the passengers were believed to be Russian tourists. The office of Egyptian Prime Minister Ismail Sharif confirmed the crash on Saturday. A cabinet level crisis committee has been formed to deal with the tragedy. Within a few minutes of the announcement of the crash, Egyptian research teams found debris belonging to the plane near al-Arish airport in the Sinai Peninsula, reported the dpa news agency, citing an Egyptian aviation official. Egyptian security sources told Reuters there were no early indications that the plane had been shot down. The news agency quoted a security officer at the scene saying that the plane was completely destroyed. RIP. Wreckage of Russian passenger plane found in Sinai: Egypt govt The wreckage of a Russian passenger plane carrying 224 people on board was spotted in a mountainous area in the Sinai Peninsula. POSTED: 31 Oct 2015 15:20 UPDATED: 31 Oct 2015 17:53 VIDEOS PHOTOS 16 34 1 Email More A A CAIRO: Egyptian military planes have spotted the wreckage of a Russian passenger plane that crashed on Saturday (Oct 31) in the Sinai Peninsula with 224 people on board, the government said. "Military planes have discovered the wreckage of the plane ... in a mountainous area, and 45 ambulances have been directed to the site to evacuate dead and wounded," a cabinet statement said. The Prime Minister's Office said Prime Minister Sherif Ismail had formed a cabinet level crisis committee to deal with the crash. The passenger jet was travelling from the Egyptian resort Sharm el-Sheikh to the Russian city of St Petersburg when it disappeared from radar screens in Cypriot airspace, Russia's RIA news agency reported, citing a Russian aviation authority source. The source said the aircraft was an Airbus A-321 jet operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia. A senior aviation official said the plane was a charter flight carrying 200 adult passengers, 17 children and seven crew members. Communication with the aircraft was lost, he added. Sergei Lzvolsky, an official with the Russian aviation agency Rosaviatsia told Interfax news agency that the plane had departed Egypt's Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh at 5:51am local time (11:51am Singapore Time). He said the aircraft did not make contact as expected with air traffic controllers in Cyprus, and "since then the plane has not made contact and has not appeared on radars". Flight #7K9268 was descending at about 6,000 feet per minute just before signal was lost, according to Flightradar24.com. The Egyptian premier's office said the Prime Minister is expected to meet ministries and authorities to follow up on the Russian plane crash.

  9. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/travel/article/russian-superhighway-could-connect-london-to-new-york Russian superhighway could connect London to New York Published: 27 March 2015 8:24 AM Russian Railways is proposing to build a new train network alongside the Trans-Siberian Railway. – AFP/Relaxnews pic, March 27, 2015 Russia has unveiled ambitious plans to build a superhighway that, in theory, could make it possible to drive from London on one end to New York on the other. According to a report by The Siberian Times, the head of Russian Railways is asking the government to seriously consider his project dubbed the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development, the first modern transportation corridor that would link up the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. Plans call for the construction of a new high-speed railway and the development of major roads that would span the length of Russia, link up with existing transportation networks in Europe and Asia – and cross the Bering Strait. A network that would run about 20,000km in length. The proposal was presented at a meeting of the Russian Academy of Science and was touted, not only as a major transportation route, but as a means to create new cities and jobs in parts of Russia and Siberia that are woefully underdeveloped, and experience the haemorrhaging of young talent who leave the region for better opportunities abroad. The new network could also be used to build pipelines for oil and gas as well as infrastructure for electricity and water supplies, said Russian Railways head Vladimir Yakunin. The lofty proposal, however, comes with an equally sky-high price tag that could be trillions of dollars. Currently, the longest international route operated by Russian Railways is Moscow to Pyongyang, North Korea, a 10,267-km journey that takes about nine days. – AFP/Relaxnews, March 27, 2015.
  10. http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/229670/russian-boob-billboards-caused-500-traffic-accidents-in-a-day/ An advertising company in Moscow was trying to convince business to invest in mobile billboards, so they hired 30 billboard vans to drive around for the day, displaying a large ad with a woman cupping her naked breasts, with the text, “They attract.” Unfortunately, the ads worked a little too well, and caused a bunch of distracted drivers to crash their cars. Reportedly, over 500 accidents occurred in roughly a day As this all happened in Russia, there are likely 500 dashcam videos recording the various accidents. (Unfortunately, none have been uploaded to weird video streaming sites … yet …) “I was on my way to a business meeting when I saw this truck with a huge photo of breasts on its side go by,” said one driver, Ildar Yuriev. “Then I was hit by the car behind who said he had been distracted by the truck.” So many drivers complained the police had to go on patrols specifically to ban the vans from the road. A spokesperson for the Sarafan Advertising Agency was apologetic for the accidents and promised that they’d help compensate drivers for the damage caused by the enormous boob vans. “We wanted to draw attention to this new format with this campaign,” he said. “In all cases of accidents, the car owners will receive compensation costs from us that aren’t covered by their insurance.” don't think we will get to see this type of ads here......
  11. With the rise in road rage incidents, having a dog in your vehicle could seem like a good way to protect yourselves from violent motorists... While the guy walking up to the Mitsubishi L200 truck did not actually look very agitated, I am sure he still got a good shock seeing the dog trying to get a piece of him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T323_Dp8L9k

    Like cop car chases? You will like this then

    Russia has lots of interesting in-car camera videos. This car chase here shot by one of the cop cars is no exception. Watch this 24 year old lead the cops on a wild chase through the streets of Irkutsk, Russia, in his Toyota Mark II. I must say he drove pretty well considering he was drunk and he was driving a high-powered rear-wheel drive car! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I116s2g6hA

  15. A comprehensive navigation system has become a standard for most, if not all, of today's cars. However, the same can't be said of motorcycles, at least not yet. With that being said, a motorcyclist will have to go through all the difficulties in reading a paper map if he wants to get the right direction to where he's heading. But now, things are about to change, thanks to a Russian company. This company is planning to come up with a solution known as the LiveMap. Featuring an earphone, a microphone, a light sensor, and - the best part - a micro display, this navigation system will project directions in the form of a heads-up display, just like what we can find featured in today's fighter jets. How cool does that sound? Unlike Google Glass - which projects images on the upper right hand side, the LiveMap will project directions right on the centre of the visor of the helmet the motorcyclist is wearing. And, thanks to the light sensor, the directions on the visor will remain transparent regardless of whether it is in the day or night. I would say that this is absolutely important as it ensures safety. A digital compass and an integrated gyroscope are also in place to make sure that the motorcyclist gets the correct orientation of the projection displayed on his visor, even if he's leaning the bike or tilting his head. Wow, this is yet another cool feature to anticipate, isn't it? But then, there's another problem, what about the power supply the helmet is going to need? Well, counting on a couple of lithium-ion batteries, the Russian company behind the solution claims that the helmet is likely to last a day. However, a USB charge plug will also come in handy should the motorcyclist require extra juice. How does this augmented-reality helmet sound? Well, if you're interested, you may want to help make it become a reality as the company is currently trying to raise US$150,000 (S$191,235) via Indiegogo. That amount is required to build a prototype that should work as expected. Then, if everything goes well, one of this LiveMap helmets may demand around US$2,000 (S$2,550) from any motorcyclist interested in it. Of course, there're always chances that prices may go down, even if we may have to wait for another decade.

    Another Russian oddity - Cop Vs Scooter!

    I bet you don't get to see that much when a traffic police officer goes against a scooter running at what seems to be a full speed. Honestly, it's the first time I stumbled upon such an occasion. But again, as I mentioned in the title, this is another Russian oddity. In case you haven't noticed, the Russians seem the best to go for when you're looking for some odd mishaps - you might want to check out this Hummer video as well. There's no exact word on what reason the police officer had in mind when he intended to stop the scooter. Most likely, though, the scooter rider had violated some traffic laws. Nevertheless, it seems that the Russians should teach their police officers a better way of stopping someone, especially one who's driving or riding on a vehicle. So, thing is, the police officer tried to stop the fast running scooter head on and I fail to figure out why this method seemed preferable to the officer in question. It's out of the question that this might as well lead to death or, at least, massive body injuries (you can see the officer finding it hard to get up in the video). Fortunately, the police officer didn't cause the scooter rider to lose his life. Had he done so, instead of enforcing the law, he would have had to go to prison. You know, instead of trying to tackle the scooter head on, the police officer could have achieved the very same result - yet with less risk of injuries, at least to himself - by stepping away from the scooter and kicking it hard sideways, preferably into the vehicle's front wheel. In that way, the runaway rider would be likely to lose his front wheel and would have been the only one to suffer from injuries. The officer, on the other hand, wouldn't have suffered from any at all and would still manage to stop both the scooter and the rider quite effectively. However, again, you can see in the video that, thanks to the officer's weird and ridiculous decision (at least so it seems to me), it happened the other way round. The scooter rider seemed unscathed at all while the officer, as I said earlier, could barely get back on his feet.
  17. 26-year old Maria Sharapova has signed a three year contract with Porsche whereby she will be involved in the firm's global communications campaign. At last year's Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, she won herself a white 911 Carrera S Cabriolet in addition to the prize money. Maria Sharapova is already the face of Nike, Tag Heuer and now she can add sports cars to her list. Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller called Maria Sharapova an exceptional athlete who combines top performance in her sports with elegance and power. He added that these were precisely the qualities that were embroiled in the brand's sports cars. Maria Sharapova declared that she had the privilege to be associated with some of the best brands in the world, but to be partners with Porsche was an amazing honour. Maria Sharapova is a Russian professional tennis player who, as of 22nd April 2013, is ranked World No. 2 by the Women's Tennis Association.

  19. Interesting as their own indigenous J-series 5th generation stealth fighters are still not yet in service and the PLAAF apparently has to fill in the gap with2 squadrons of effectively Flanker-upgraded Su-35s for the time being I guess. The real eye-opener is the purchase of the Lada-class AIP subs which are supposingly more deadly than the Kilo-class diesel ones. Guess all the claimant states of islands which PRC is also laying claims over have a real cause for concern for their naval vessels now that PLAN have both Kilos and Ladas in service... [sweatdrop] From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/afp...1262201/1/.html China to buy Russian fighters, subs Posted: 25 March 2013 1450 hrs BEIJING: China has agreed to buy two dozen fighter jets and four submarines from Russia, state media reported Monday, the country's first large-scale weapons technology purchases from Moscow in a decade. The agreement to buy the 24 Su-35 fighters and four Lada-class submarines was signed just before President Xi Jinping's weekend visit to Russia, said the People's Daily, the Communist Party organ, citing state television. The report, which did not give a value for the purchases, said it was the first time in 10 years China had bought "large military technological equipment" from Russia. The deal comes as Beijing expands its military reach -- it commissioned its first aircraft carrier last year -- and is embroiled in a bitter territorial row with Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea. Two of the submarines will be built in Russia, with the other two to be built in China. "The Su-35 fighters can effectively reduce pressure on China's air defence before Chinese-made stealth fighters come online," the report said. China and Russia are expected to co-operate further in developing military technology, the report said, including that for S-400 long-range anti-aircraft missiles, 117S large thrust engines, IL-476 large transport aircraft and IL-78 aerial tankers. China's defence ministry had no immediate comment on the report. Xi visited Moscow from Friday to Sunday for talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, his first trip abroad since becoming head of state earlier this month. The countries signed around 30 energy and other agreements during the visit. Xi also met Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and became the first foreign leader to visit the Russian armed forces' control centre. Moscow and Beijing, which were once bitter foes during the Cold War, have strengthened cooperation in recent years to counterbalance what they see as US global dominance. Earlier this month China announced a further double-digit rise in its defence budget, raising it by 10.7 percent to 720.2 billion yuan ($116.3 billion) in 2013. -AFP/ac
