In response to the latest round of anti-Russian sanctions, the Kremlin is closing down some American businesses operating in Russia. McDonald's was the first American company that opened in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, and now it's under fire. The Russian authorities closed down several McDonald's fast food chains in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities, citing "unsatisfactory hygiene conditions". Apparently, these McDonald's chains all of a sudden failed the Russian hygiene standards, after consistently satisfying them for years. The irony here is that most McDonald's places in Russia are not even owned by Americans but by local Russian businessmen, since it's a franchise business. Yet the Kremlin thinks that McDonald's is associated with the US, and thus needs to be shown the door. We wonder when they will start banning iPhones and Windows, since they are also evil American products?
Perhaps McDonald's in Russia could survive by integrating with Russia more. Let's Russianize McDonald's in any possible ways. Some examples are - show new Russian McDonald's menu including Russian products symbols, turn any Russian places into McDonald's restaurants, dress up any famous Russians as Ronald McDonald, etc.
Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn announced last week the indictment of 11 members of a Russian "military procurement network" operating in the United States, who allegedly have been shipping U.S. military technology to the former Soviet Union since 2008.
According to the feds, the 11 people indicted illegally exported high-tech micro-electronics -- used for things like radar and surveillance systems, weapons guidance systems, and detonation triggers -- to Russian military intelligence agencies on behalf of the Russian government.
Russian President Putin and Vice President Medvedev denied all spy ring allegations and said that the US police have arrested 11 innocent people.
Photoshop how Putin or Medvedev could be spying in the US - hiding to hear the secret conversations, tapping, stealing the classified information, using spy gadgets, Morse code, and invisible ink, etc.
Show how well (or badly) Putin and Medvedev could spy. (A piece of trivia: Putin, who turned 60 yesterday, used to be a head of a Russian spy division in Western Germany for many years. He still speaks fluent German.)
A big Russian spy ring scandal has popped today in the US - just two days after President Obama and President Medvedev ate some burgers together and talked about resetting the US-Russian relations for the better. The FBI arrested 10 people living double lives for up to a decade - posing as innocent civilians while secretly attempting to infiltrate U.S policymaking circles to learn about American weapons, political developments and diplomatic strategy. the FBI reported that the clandestine network of spies used a series of cold war tactics such as encrypted Morse code messages, stenography, hiding secretive data in an image, brush passes, and invisible writing to send intelligence back to the Russian government.

Latest ambitions of Russian President Vladimir Putin are no longer contained within this planet. As part of the renewed space program, Russian space agency announced that it plans to send their cosmonauts to the Moon and establish a permanent astronaut base there.
Russia's space program has suffered a dramatic decline in the 90s due to a lack of funds. Since 2001 Russia started taking space tourists on their space missions with tickets selling for about $30 million. It has also launched satellites for other countries. Such role of Russia as a "space taxi" helped make solid financial injections into their space program over the last 6 years.
Photoshop anything connected to a Russian mission to the Moon. Examples may include showing how Russians would explore the Moon if they landed on it during the Soviet Union era, or nowadays. What if Russians were the first men on the Moon, superseding America? Show the photos of Russian moon missions and what a Russian moon base may look like. These are just some ideas, the "sky" is the limit.
