Old is new again
Meet the new Russia: Formerly known as the KGB, "FSB" is a Russian initialism standing for "Human Rights Commission".
In a statement yesterday, the Kremlin said the security service, known as the FSB, would now be able to issue warnings to those 'whose acts create the conditions for the committing of a crime'.

National Defence officials said the fact that two Russian TU-95 Bears flew into Canada’s “area of interest” – about 250 nautical miles, or 460 kilometres, away from Goose Bay, Nfld. – constituted a “close one.” The incoming Russian planes were spotted by NORAD on Wednesday, and two Canadian fighter jets were dispatched from the air force base in Bagotville, Que., to meet them.
