Russia the world's second largest arms exporter.

I'm rather enjoying watching how everyone is jumping on the Anna Chapman Honeypot Spy (TM) bandwagon again. First the breathless reports that she (almost!) seduced a US cabinet official. Then the slightly shamefaced revelation that nothing of the sort happened.

I like this approach of adopting a universally available app, rather than making people download yet another app that only has one (rarely used) purpose. Well done Sheremeytevo!
 
Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow has launched a new service for passengers which allows them to check-in for their flight using a Skype app on their mobile phone.

Apparently Google has added live scores to searches for the UEFA Champions league and the Russian KHL. If I type 'Champions League' into Google I get the latest results, but if I type 'KHL' - nothing. Can anyone else see the KHL results, or is it just me?

Great start for Russia in their bid to join the Rugby 7s elite - the core group of 15 nations who will compete in every IRB sevens tournament in the 2012-2013 season. Qualification for the core group, if they make it, will provide great experience ahead of the 2013 World Sevens Championship, which will be held for the first time in Russia.

Good to see Russia starting off the rugby season with a win. And Georgia lose, which means the Bears have a shot at the title!
