Anyone can now take a free ride in the Moscow subway by proving their good physical shape. A passenger will be allowed to ride the Moscow subway for free, if he or she makes 30 sit-ups.
A special machine was installed on Vystavochnaya subway station on Friday, at 16:00. The machine sells tickets for sit-up exercises. The sports novelty was presented by Olympic champion Alexei Nemov and Elena Zamolodchikova.
One subway ride will thus cost 30 sit-ups, rather than 30 rubles (90 cents). A special device will count the number of performed sit-ups. The system will work before December 4.
Over the past two months, the number of dollar billionaires in Russia has increased from 99 to 101 people, while their combined wealth has grown from $392 to $54 billion.
The prospective Russian unmanned underwater vehicle Poseidon will be launched for the first time this fall, a source in the military-industrial complex of Russia said.
According to the source, the Poseidon will be launched from the Belgorod nuclear submarine.
The vehicle has not been assembled yet - scientists only test separate components and units of the system.
Alexander Zhilin, the head of the Center for the Study of Public Applied Issues of National Security, believes that the underwater drone can be on alert and take part in military operations at any time without any restrictions. According to the expert, the drone provides enormous protection against external interventions.
In February 2019, the Ministry of Defense unveiled the first video of Poseidon's range operations. Putin later said that the drone carrier would be launched in spring.
