The Prosecutor's Office of the Novosibirsk region (West Siberia) accused Igor Grebnev, owner of a private museum of palaeontology in Novosibirsk, of smuggling. He is suspected of mass export of palaeontological specimens, the Novosibirsk customs said. According to the investigation data, during recent years the Novosibirsk palaeontologist had been excavating in Siberia and Far East and buying remains of ancient animals from local residents for a song. Then he exported the remains for sale to different countries, for instance to Germany, England, the USA, Japan, the Netherlands, Australia, etc. Not long before the summons to the Prosecutor's Office Grebnev intended to export to the USA a whole mammoth's skeleton and to sell it to a private collector. He took this skeleton to pieces in order to send it as a parcel by mail.
The Russian Defence Ministry acknowledged that the Americans treat Russian military men in Syria with respect. The Americans always warn Russia accordingly, but not Israel
After the incident with the shootdown of the Ilyushin Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea, Russia will supply an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system to Syria
Indeed, how dare they run US-independent policy? They should have followed the example of the European Union that turned independent states of the Old World into US-ditto entities
