    Russian President Vladimir Putin has personally inspected an array of new armored vehicles designed for the country’s special forces.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the president was presented with the hardware after it was inspected by a Federal Security Service panel.

    Peskov didn’t elaborate on what types of vehicles the president did inspect, though LifeNews apparently identified them as Viking and Falcatus armored cars.

      Nice but I prefer the rear door of that armoured car in two pieces. One goes up and the other with steps goes down. This way faster opening and closing also faster for personnel to get in and out. Haha, also if one got jammed still can use the other to get in and out.

      There are usually more comments "via sputnik" than "via facebook" so, Sputniknews should use (as it was logical) COMMENT VIA SPUTNIK first, and not second as happens now...when you open a page you only can watch "comment via facebook" but it should be "comment via sputnik".

      enrique_costas, hi, absolutely exact enrique, i wondered about that, it is like if it is an acknowledgement of facebook being superioi!!!! why...to start with there are much more intelligent comment on sputnik...but it can also be a tactical move to support global point of view...whatever it would be better to see sputnik comments first...
