Sinister rumours from the St Petersburg area were confirmed recently when a chap I know on secondment to our Embassy there was invited to some military manoeurvres.
It seems that the Tsar has his scientistis fossicking around the Siberian plains and digging up old frozen nastiness, zapping them back into life. Along then comes the renowned Dr Ivan Petrovich Pavlov and voila! - fully training beasts of war stand ready to defend the Motherland!
