Quotes

Ivan Basedin, head of the Moscow Metro, said: "Next year, the metro will be 80 years old and many of our technical systems need replacing. The escalators need replacing. So do the safety systems for the trains, which we're working on, and the overall safety system from fire alarms to crime fighting."

"Umarov was killed in a security operation, which I wrote about earlier ... Now it is confirmed by the rats themselves" he wrote
