Russia’s most notorious mafia boss was gunned down in broad daylight by sniper fire as he exited a restaurant in central Moscow today, according to Russia’s Interior Ministry.

Aslan Usoyan, who was more commonly known as Ded Hasan (Grandpa Hasan), was the patriarch of one of Russia’s most infamous mafia clans. The tabloid news website Lifenews.ru published a bloody photo of Usoyan’s dead body.

The mobster had just left an Azeri restaurant around 2:30 p.m. when he was struck by gunfire. Reports said the shot came from a sniper rifle fired from a nearby rooftop. Russia’s Interfax news agency reports that a female bystander was also injured by gunfire.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the shooting, but Russian news reports immediately suspected it was the work of a rival gang.

Usoyan was an ethnic Kurd born in the former republic of Georgia, which was then part of the Soviet Union. He had previously survived at least two other assassination attempts. In 2010 he was wounded but survived after being shot in the stomach by a Kalashnikov rifle. At the time investigators suggested it was over a dispute with another Georgian mob boss over construction projects for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Interfax quoted an unnamed law enforcement source saying it appears the two attacks were organized by the same people. The news agency also reported that his killing could spark renewed conflict between criminal groups.

A Russian lawmaker was quoted saying today’s hit appeared to be meticulously planned.

“There is no doubt this daring crime was well prepared,” State Duma Security and Anti-Corruption Committee Chairperson Irina Yarovaya told reporters, according to Interfax.

Yarovaya dismissed suggestions that the assassination marked a return to the bloody “wild west” days of mob warfare in the 1990s.

“We have a different country, different laws and different order now,” she said.

6 December 2012                  19:38 ET

In 1987 a West German teenager shocked the world, by flying through Soviet air defences to land a Cessna aeroplane in Red Square. He was jailed for more than a year – but a quarter of a century later, he has no regrets.

Exactly 25 years ago, the USSR Foreign Ministry announced that it had rejected an appeal by a German teenager against his prison sentence.

Mathias Rust, just 19, had single-handedly flown more than 500 miles (750km) through every Soviet defensive shield in a single-engine plane to land at the gates of the Kremlin.

The idea had come to him a year earlier while he was watching TV at his parents’ home where he lived in Hamburg, West Germany.

A summit between the US and Russian presidents in Reykjavik had ended in a stalemate, and the teenager who had a passion for politics felt he wanted to do something to make a difference.

Matthias Rust in 1987
Rust was sentenced to four years’ hard labour

“I thought every human on this planet is responsible for some progress and I was looking for an opportunity to take my share in it,” he says.

Rust already had a pilot’s licence and had clocked up 50 hours in the air when it occurred to him to put his skill to use.

“I was thinking I could use the aircraft to build an imaginary bridge between West and East to show that a lot of people in Europe wanted to improve relations between our worlds.”

Many idealistic teenagers may have had similar fantasies of bringing about world peace by performing daring acts. The difference with Rust is that he actually went ahead with his plan.

On 13 May 1987 he told his parents he was going to tour northern Europe in a Cessna airplane in order to clock up hours towards his professional pilot’s licence.

Archive footage of Mathias Rust landing in Red Square

His first stop was in the Scottish Shetland Islands, then the Faroe Islands off the coast of Denmark. He spent one night in each.

Next came the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, then Bergen in Norway before he arrived on 25 May in the Finnish capital, Helsinki.

He spent several days there trying to decide if he really had the courage to go through with his plan. He had good reason to be nervous.

The USSR had the largest air defence system in the world. Less than five years earlier, a South Korean civilian airliner had been shot down after straying into Soviet air space, causing the death of all 269 passengers on board.

“Of course I was afraid to lose my life,” Rust recalls.

“I was weighing if it is really responsible, reasonable, to take this kind of risk. At the end I came to the conclusion, ‘I have to risk it.'”

Rust's route

1. Heads from Helsinki towards Stockholm and turns off transponder

2. Changes course near the Finnish town of Nummela

3. Flies past his first waypoint, a radio beacon, as fighters are scrambled

4. Passes Lake Seliger, a popular summer retreat

5. Is spotted by radar in Torzhok

6. Goes through Moscow’s “Ring of Steel” anti-aircraft defence system, lands just by Red Square, and pulls up next to St Basil’s Cathedral

On the morning of 28 May, he told air traffic control in Helsinki he would be heading to Stockholm, in Sweden. Even then he wasn’t completely sure he would go through with it.

“I made the final decision about half an hour after departure. I just changed the direction to 170 degrees and I was heading straight down to Moscow,” he says.

Back in Helsinki, operators at air control began to worry. Rust was heading in the wrong direction and then vanished from their radar screens before they could make radio contact.

An enormous manhunt was launched by the Finish coast guard and when a patch of oil was spotted on the sea surface, divers were brought in to search for a wreck.

While they were hunting for him, Rust was sitting snug in his cockpit as his plane crossed into Soviet airspace, over Estonia.

Within minutes he had been picked up by Soviet radar, and less than an hour later a MIG fighter jet approached him.

Cessna 172 Skyhawk

Rust’s Cessna 172 Skyhawk

  • Popular mass-produced light aircraft – Rust signed one out from flying club for three weeks
  • Four-seater equipped with extra fuel tanks boosting range from 200 miles (324km) to 860 miles (1,389km)
  • Supplies – maps, sleeping bag, 15 quarts engine oil, life vest and motorcycle crash helmet

“It passed me on my left side so close that I could see the two pilots sitting in the cockpit and I saw of course the red star of the wing of the aircraft.”

Rust was terrified, but instead of attacking him, the jet passed by and disappeared into the clouds.

A combination of unbelievable luck and human error had led to Rust’s plane being mistaken for a friendly aircraft.

A plane crash the previous day, and an on-going rescue operation, along with training for new pilots had led to confusion in the air and in control centres.

Somehow Rust managed to make it hundreds of miles across Soviet airspace to the capital without any further contact from USSR defence forces.

“I couldn’t believe I actually survived,” he recalls.

“I had calculated at the time that my chances of survival were about 50:50 and after I reached my destination, I knew that I really was on the lucky side.”

But his relief at seeing the spires and domes of Moscow quickly faded when he realised that landing was going to be difficult.

He had wanted to bring down the plane in the middle of Red Square in order to make a big statement but the landmark was packed full of people.

He now works as yoga instructor and financial analyst

On the ground, Soviet citizens were stopping and looking up in amazement as the small white plane circled just 32 feet (10m) above the ground.

Finally Rust spotted a four-lane bridge next to St Basil’s Cathedral so he circled around one more time and touched down there.

Later, when he was questioned by the Russian police, he learned that the bridge was usually spanned by thick cables, which would have made a landing impossible.

By chance, they had been removed from the bridge that very morning for maintenance.

“The police presumed that I had co-operators in Moscow who had arranged it so that I would be able to land,” Rust says.

At around 7pm just as the sun was going down, Rust taxied his plane into the square and climbed out of the cockpit to greet the crowds which gathered around him.

They wanted to know where the young foreigner was from and why he was there.

“I am here on a peace mission from Germany,” Rust told them.

When they shook his hand, glad to meet an ally, he had to explain that he came from “the other Germany”, West not the Communist East as they presumed.

Mikhail Gorbachev

Soviet leaders lash out

  • Rust bypasses Soviet air defence system of 2,250 aircraft and 10,000 surface-to-air missiles
  • Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev holds an emergency meeting of the ruling Politburo – it criticises air defence ministers for carelessness and lack of decisiveness
  • Defence Minister Sergei Sokolov is forced to retire – air defence chief Alexander Koldunov is sacked
  • About 150 officers are removed from their posts

Dr Robin Stott, a British doctor who happened to be in Moscow as part of an anti-nuclear pressure group, was taking time out from a non-proliferation conference to see the sights when Rust landed his plane right in front of him.

“It was an extraordinary thing. None of us had a clue what was going on,” he recalls.

“Everyone around him was very impressed; even the security services kept saying what a brave boy they thought he was.”

Once the police had recovered from the shock of finding an unauthorised aircraft parked at the gates of the Kremlin, Rust was arrested.

He spent hours trying to persuade the authorities that he had acted alone and was not part of some sinister plot hatched by foreign governments.

In the Kremlin there was shock and plenty of red faces as the full extent of the humiliating incident became apparent.

But it is likely that President Gorbachev realised he could use the opportunity to his advantage to rid himself of military officials whom he saw as standing in the way of his reforms.

Within a couple of days the minister of defence had been forced to retire, and the head of the air defence services had been sacked. Over the next few months more than 150 people lost their jobs.

Rust was charged and pleaded guilty to violating international flight rules, illegally crossing the Soviet border, and “malicious hooliganism”.

The judge sentenced him to four years in a labour camp for what he called an act of adventurism.

Despite being allowed to serve his time in Lefortovo prison in Moscow, Rust took his confinement badly.

“It was really hard for me being just 19 years old to just be locked up for 23 hours a day. I had a lot of difficulty keeping food down and I lost a lot of weight,” he says.

Then in 1988, following the signing of a non-proliferation treaty by Reagan and Gorbachev, Rust was released as a gesture of good will after serving only 14 months.

Rust’s flight was seen as so incredible to Muscovites that it wormed its way into popular culture. For a while Red Square was jokingly referred to as Sheremetyevo-3 – Sheremetyevo-1 and -2 are airports near Moscow.

Within a year of returning to Hamburg, Rust stabbed a colleague at a hospital where he worked and ended up behind bars again.

Today he makes his living as a financial analyst and a yoga instructor.

He says he has no regrets about what he did and believes he had a hand in helping President Gorbachev with his reforms.

“I am very convinced that I enabled him to push through his Perestroika and Glasnost much faster than he would have done without me.”

Edward Arthur Dames joined the United States Army in 1967, enlisting as a paratrooper at the age of seventeen. After serving one year as an Airborne Infantryman, Mr. Dames transferred to the Army Security Agency, and was assigned to the Far East to support National Security Agency missions in that part of the world. In 1974, Mr. Dames returned home to attend college, quickly earning a four-year scholarship for academic excellence. After three years as an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, where he double-majored in Bioelectronics and Chinese, Mr. Dames joined Berkeley’s ROTC program, becoming a Distinguished Military Graduate, in 1978.

Newly commissioned as a second lieutenant in Military Intelligence, Mr. Dames was sent to be trained as a tactical electronic warfare officer and, for three years, was assigned to Germany to intercept and jam Soviet and Czech communications. From there he was recruited by a scientific and technical military intelligence “black unit”, ultimately to direct clandestine operations against high-value foreign targets. He remained in deep cover, travelling worldwide under assumed identities

In 1981, Mr. Dames’ life changed forever. The Soviets had been secretly developing a sophisticated biological weapons program. Mr. Dames and his elite military group were tasked to identify the components of these deadly, toxic weapons. Covert operatives that he had recruited were unable to penetrate the Soviets’ wall of secrecy. Out of desperation, he contemplated the use of psychics to help uncover this critical information. In reality, the U.S. Army was already considering the possibility of employing psychics for intelligence collection, but very few high- ranking officers were willing to risk their careers over the stigma associated with such a project.

Nevertheless, the U.S. Army began a funded study at the Stanford Research Institute to systematise psychic phenomena and develop a working tool by which “non-psychics” would also be able to utilise psychic functioning for the purpose of acquiring reliable and consistent information. Mr. Dames became the operations and training officer of this team, which ultimately achieved its goal by developing the technique now known as Remote Viewing.

Back in Washington D.C., in 1984, Mr. Dames and his team applied their remote viewing abilities to the toughest national intelligence problems, such as locating and tracking international terrorists and their hostages and, finally, uncovering key data surrounding the Soviet offensive biological warfare program. The results of these efforts were briefed to Congress and the U.S. President. For his work, Mr. Dames was awarded two Army Meritorious Service Medals and the Legion of Merit. Additionally, he was personally credited by the Defense Intelligence Agency with penetrating the Soviet Defense Counciltin that agency’s words, “a singularly profound act.” Over the years, the remote viewing information that he collected continued to be secretly used by numerous government agencies, and by all branches of the military

As a result of increasing turmoil and turnover in the ranks of top Army intelligence leadership during the late 1980’s, “channelers” and psychic charlatans were recruited to co-mingle with the trained professionals in the unit. Worse yet, various politicians, desiring information about their political and personal futures, began to approach the project, turning it into a “three-ring circus.” Rather than being forced to stand by and witness the disintegration of his unit’s effectiveness and the loss of remote viewing technology, Major Dames retired from the U.S. Army, taking the original team’s best and brightest with him to form his Beverly Hills, California based company, PSI TECH.

In late 1991, during the Gulf War, PSI TECH provided intelligence on Saddam Hussein to the National Security Council, and located Iraq’s hidden biological warfare stockpiles for the United Nations. These endeavours earned Mr. Dames and PSI TECH the attention of the world press. Currently, PSI TECH’s clients range from the leaders of Fortune 500 corporations, to academics in science, medicine and law, as well as select individuals from the private sector who undergo the firm’s specialized training. Since 1983, when Mr. Dames began teaching and employing these incredible skills, he has perfected remote viewing methods and techniques, employing his Technical Remote Viewing training and operations protocols, which guarantee his commercial clients an unprecedented 100% data accuracy rate.

Ed’s personal interests include human potential, natural history, martial arts and physical fitness. He is fluent in Chinese Mandarin.

The world’s foremost remote viewing teacher, and creator of Technical Remote Viewing, Major Edward A. Dames, United States Army (ret.), is a decorated military intelligence officer and an original member of the U.S. Army prototype remote viewing training program. He served as both training and operations officer for the U.S. government’s TOP SECRET psychic espionage unit.

Background:

Edward Dames is a ROTC Distinguished Military Graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. Between 1979 and 1983, Major Dames served as an electronic warfare officer and scientific and technical intelligence officer.In 1982, Ingo Swann, under the direction of Dr. Harold Puthoff, head of the Remote Viewing Laboratory at Stanford Research Institute, realized a breakthrough. Swann developed a working model for how the unconscious mind communicates information to conscious awareness. To test the model, the Army sent Major Dames and five others to Swann as a prototype trainee group.The results exceeded all expectations – even those of Swann. In six months, Major Dames’ teammates were producing psychically-derived data with more consistency and accuracy than had ever been seen in similar intelligence projects using even the best ‘natural’ psychics. In late 1983, the team parted company with Swann. As the new operations and training officer for the unit, Dames took this breakthrough skill, dubbed ‘Coordinate Remote Viewing,’ and began a new phase of research, testing, and evaluation in order to both uncover its true capabilities, and to perfect its application to fit crucial intelligence collection needs.

Major Dames receives his first Meritorious Service Medal

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by outstanding meritorious achievement as targeting and analysis officer, United States Army Systems Exploitation Detachment, from 5 January 1983 to 30 September 1984. CPT Dames identified and confirmed the existence of an entirely new Soviet offensive weapon, and then personally briefed senior officials of the National Intelligence Agencies regarding the significance of this new Soviet capability. As a result of CPT Dames’ efforts in uncovering this program, new resources are being programmed to develop the appropriate defense measures to deal with this new and highly disturbing Soviet capability. CPT Dames’ achievements are clearly outstanding and reflect utmost credit upon himself, his organization, and the United States Army.Major Dames supplied the U.S. President and NSC with proof that the Soviets had clandestinely developed a new generation of biochemical warfare agents. As a result, Congress approved funds for a new DIA Biological Threat Analysis Center. Under the standard military rigor and discipline, combined with a team approach and countless hours of applying the new tool against a wide range of operational and training targets, ‘psychic intelligence’ (PSIINT) methods and techniques became dependable enough to be considered by some individuals in leadership positions for use in support of life-or-death missions, or special operations in which the application of deadly (military) force was authorized.

Major Dames receives his second Meritorious Service Medal

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by outstanding meritorious achievement as targeting and analysis officer, United States Army Systems Exploitation Detachment, from 1 June 1983 to 1 November 1984. CPT Dames identified a new and unique Soviet weapons program. The national security implications of CPT Dames’ findings have been characterized by top U.S. policymakers as revolutionary, and were briefed by him to officials in all the national intelligence agencies, the Secretary of the Army, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and members of the National Security Council and Congress, who subsequently briefed the president of the United States. CPT Dames’ achievements are clearly outstanding and reflect utmost credit upon himself, his organization and the United States Army.The Army passed control of the ‘psi spy’ unit to the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1986. DIA is an analytical agency, and has no charter to collect intelligence – it did not know what to do with the unit. The unit was ferreted away within DIA’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate.Dale Graff, a civilian, was assigned by DIA to administratively oversee the unit. Since the unit was no longer being utilized to any real operational potential, Major Dames’ focus shifted almost entirely to developing advanced remote viewing techniques. Quietly, however, he also utilized the team to support projects on behalf of clients in the classified research community. By 1989, civilian Dale Graff, through a complete lack of understanding about remote viewing capabilities and ‘real world’ applications, began recruiting natural psychics as additional members of the team – an act that effectively administered the coup de grace to the unit’s value – and future – as an intelligence collection asset.In the same year, Major Dames brought remote viewing technology out of the military and to the public. He formed a company that started out by hiring virtually all of the original military remote viewers, who were still on active duty. Today, all of the now evolved, enabling remote viewing expertise and knowledge resides in the civilian sector, where Dames continues to teach the techniques and employ this powerful tool in commercial operations.

Major Dames receives The Legion of Merit

Citation Details: For distinguishing himself by exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services as an intelligence officer in the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command and the Defense Intelligence Agency from 1 October 1982 to 1 October 1991. His insightful threat analysis has contributed significantly to this country’s ability to maintain its military superiority. Major Dames’ distinguished performance of duty throughout this period represents outstanding accomplishments in the most cherished traditions of the United States Army and reflects the utmost credit upon himself and the military service.Major Dames retired from the U.S. Army in 1991 and began a full-time effort to advance remote viewing technology, and to create teams of professional civilian Remote Viewers to work on complex projects.In 1992, Ingo Swann wrote a letter to The American Society of Psychical Research, which included, among other things, a brief summary of his knowledge about Ed:

“He [Major Dames] was Targeting Director (sic) of the U.S. Intelligence Electronic & Security Command (sic), and assistant director of special operations (sic) in the DIA Directorate of Scientific and Technical Intelligence, and an area controller of special operations (sic) of Headquarters Department of the Army. For several years, he was mandated to brief on a daily and/or weekly basis DIA, NSA, other agencies, and, when circumstances required, the President and his advisors.”

Major Dames released his initial VHS RV training tape set in 1997. Unfortunately, a VHS tape does not allow for a menu system and, therefore, cannot provide an efficiently structured method of presenting RV training targets along with the necessary feedback. By today’s standards, attempting to learn remote viewing from VHS tapes is neither practical nor effective. Attempting to adapt RV training to a CD format does not overcome this problem.From 2000 through 2004, Major Dames held remote viewing workshops around the country in an effort to build a base of vocationally oriented remote viewers.Finally, in September, 2004, Major Dames released the long awaited, groundbreaking Learn Remote Viewing 4-disk DVD course (www.LearnRV.com). The Learn Remote Viewing course is now the most advanced RV training program in the world, incorporating 17 years of evolved, post-‘psi spy’ operational knowledge. The training set utilizes the natural DVD menu system to provide a structured, comfortably paced training environment, with an effective mix of training targets, lectures, and feedback. Additionally, a free online forum is manned daily by the teacher himself and his staff of professional remote viewers, providing unlimited assistance to students during and after their training. No other remote viewing training course provides this degree of support and educational excellence.Today, Major Dames remains the leader in this brave new world – a world without secrets. He continues to advance Remote Viewing technology, and to teach the latest remote viewing techniques via the LearnRV DVD course and the RV Community Forum. And, as always, he devotes much of his free time to humanitarian projects.

Guests: Major Ed Dames

Remote viewing teacher Major Ed Dames discussed his previous prediction of a major quake in Japan, and shared insights into forthcoming quakes, the solar ‘Kill Shot,’ and safe places to live. In a 2003 show with Art Bell, he predicted a massive earthquake would hit Japan and damage a nuclear reactor. (He was off on the year, which he told Art would be in late Spring, 2005.) He also shared this prediction with Japanese TV (related video clip).

Dames and his team have remote viewed what he calls the “next, mass human death-causing earthquake,”– something akin to what we just witnessed in Japan. Though he couldn’t name a date, the site of this will be the New Madrid Fault and the Wabash Valley seismic zone (see map below), and St. Louis, Missouri will be particularly hard hit with the most deaths, he declared, adding that we might even see the Mississippi River change its course.

The solar ‘Kill Shot,’ which will cause the collapse of Earth’s magnetic field and lead to huge power outages, will begin within the next couple of months, with dangerous activity from the sun continuing through late 2012, he outlined. According to Dames, the safest places in North America to deal with the disastrous upcoming earth changes include Alberta, Saskatchewan, parts of Manitoba, parts of east Oregon, Arizona, parts of New Mexico, the southern portion of the Appalachian Mountains, and an area west of the Great Lakes.

The trial of the female punk rock band Pussy Riot has sharply divided liberals and conservatives in Russian society.

Three members of Pussy Riot are awaiting a verdict on their highly controversial performance of a protest song against Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s main cathedral – Christ the Saviour – in March.

Many liberals who sided with the group feel the Orthodox Church’s leader, Patriarch Kirill, has overplayed its hand recently.

They point to his support for President Putin and refusal to publicly pardon the protesters.

But more traditional believers say the Patriarch needs to be given a chance to revive the Church’s flagging attendance rates in a mainly Orthodox society.

Sergei Rybko understands the difficulty the Patriarch is facing.

In the Soviet Union he was a hippy, later becoming a priest who struggled against the communists’ persecution of the Orthodox Church.

He is to this day a lover of rock music. He strives to convince other clergymen of the value in 1970s rock bands like Slade and Deep Purple.

He also attends rock concerts, telling crowds that freedom without God is impossible.

I assumed, since he has liberal views, he would defend the likes of Pussy Riot.

I was wrong.

“They should be given forced labour,” he quipped. “That would be a suitable punishment.

“Anyway, they are not real punk musicians. They were paid to perform.”

As we go inside the small monastery attached to Father Sergei’s church in northern Moscow it becomes clear why he has such strong feelings.

“The Church needs time to equip itself with better PR skills. The previous Patriarch [Alexei II] had to revive the Orthodox Church from scratch. Now the Church is being attacked and that is not fair.”

Conspiracy theories

Younger Orthodox Russians I spoke to, many of whom support Pussy Riot, disagree. They feel that their Patriarch is not maintaining the neutrality expected of him and is in fact legitimising the activity of the state.

Russian bloggers spotted the tell-tale reflection of the Patriarch’s gold watch

“The Church connects people to God but now these two bodies – the Church and the government – are linked and it should not be like this,” says Nikolai Polozov, a committed Orthodox Christian and the lawyer acting for Pussy Riot.

And yet the Church feels someone is out there to get them. As it struggles to boost its low attendances (fewer than 10% of Russians attend church regularly), it talks of a “smear campaign” being waged against the Patriarch.

It appeared to be referring to stories printed online in recent months alleging that its leader enjoyed luxuries that contravened the vow of poverty he took when he became a monk.

One concerned a lawsuit involving a large flat belonging to him in Moscow. It ended with damages of around $500,000 (£315,000) being awarded to a woman acting on behalf of the Patriarch.

But then there was the story about a $30,000 Swiss watch that the Patriarch was photographed wearing during a religious service in Ukraine in 2009.

In one photograph journalists noted that the watch had been airbrushed out, although its reflection could still be seen on the highly polished table where he was seated.

These episodes, while embarrassing for the Patriarch, may have been intentional, says Andrei Zolotov, a member of the Church and a journalist specialising in religion. He is the editor of Russia Profile magazine.

“I certainly don’t rule out that people in the Kremlin may have decided that the Patriarch has too much weight and may want to put him in his place,” he says.

Influencing politicians

I decided to put some of these points to senior bishops in the Church.

Metropolitan Hillarion heads the external relations department at the Moscow Patriarchate.

He would not answer on the impact the trial is having, but did talk about the relationship between Church and state.

He said that far from being a tool of the Kremlin, the Church is actually there to hold the government to account.

“There have been quite a number of cases when the Church expressed its dissatisfaction with government policies and we try to change these policies,” he said.

“For example, if we know something is happening in the army and we are unhappy with that we engage in dialogue with the defence ministry and try to influence them. I see this way of collaboration as very fruitful.”

Andrei Zolotov believes the recent scandals have only deepened the mistrust in society and that they will have a lasting effect.

“For the past 20 years after the Soviet-era persecution the Church had a right to rebuild. Now things unfortunately get back to normal. And normal means a confrontation between some of the radical elements in society – the leftists, the radicals – and the traditionalists.”

You don’t have to travel far in Moscow to meet people from each of these different categories, all with opposing views.

But most agree on one thing: that the Pussy Riot protest will have a lasting impact on the way the Church is seen in Mr Putin’s Russia.

The last time the United States lost an Olympic women’s 4×400-meter relay final, in 1992, Francena McCorory was 3-years-old.

On Saturday night, McCorory ran the third leg for the American squad that continued its dominance in the event. The quartet of DeeDee Trotter, Allyson Felix, McCorory and Sanya Richards-Ross was timed in 3 minutes 16.87 seconds, well ahead of the silver medalists from Russia (3:20.23). Jamaica took third in 3:20.95.

With an opening leg of 49.57, Trotter handed Felix a lead of several meters, which she expanded with a split of 48.85. McCorory ran a 48.85 split and Richards-Ross came home in 49.07. The previous night, the 4×100 relay, which featured Felix, broke a world record that had stood for 27 years. For a while, it appeared that another bolt might strike out. But in the end, the 24-year-old world record of 3:15.17, set by the Soviet Union, was safe.

For Felix, 26, the relay offered a sense of what might have been. Her best time in the 400 meters, a 49.70, would have tied for the silver medal here but she bypassed the event here in favor of the 100 meters.

7 August 2012                  20:09 ET

In the summer of 1987, the American swimmer Lynne Cox braved the frigid waters of the Bering Strait to swim from the United States to the Soviet Union. Twenty-five years on, now aged 55, she recalls how her actions in the waning days of the Cold War eased international tensions.

“I wanted to open the border so we could become friends,” says Cox. “The difficulty was that nobody believed it could happen.”

Her route between Little Diomede Island, in the US state of Alaska, and Big Diomede Island, in the Soviet Union, was just 4.3km (2.7 miles) but it crossed the maritime border of two countries still locked in Cold War opposition, and the water was cold, very cold.

“There was this instant loss of breath,” Cox recalls. “The cold was like a huge vampire pulling the heat from my body. I looked down at my fingers and they were totally grey, like the hands of a cadaver.”

With the water temperature at 3.3C, the only way for Cox, then 30 years old, to survive was to keep moving.

“I put my face in the water and started swimming as fast as I could. I was also looking at my shoulders to see if they were turning blue because that would be really dangerous.”

Map showing location of Diomede islands

Cox first had the idea of the Bering Strait swim in 1976 and spent years lobbying Soviet officials for permission to enter their waters.

After being ignored at every turn, Cox finally decided to use “every last penny” of her savings to do her swim.

On the eve of the swim, there was still no word from Moscow, and the military on both sides of the Cold War were jittery.

“We knew something was happening because the Soviets moved two ships the size of football fields up into the Bering Strait,” Cox recalls.

Cox and Soviet officer
The Soviets had tea and biscuits ready for Cox and her support team

“The (indigenous) Inuits freaked out so they called the (US) National Guard and they sent up jet fighters. Then the Soviets sent up MiGs to check out why the Americans were up there. And I was thinking that this was supposed to be about world peace.”

With 24 hours to go, permission came through from Moscow. President Gorbachev himself had seen a TV report about Cox’s swim and – with the world’s media watching – the Soviet leadership decided it would be too embarrassing to turn her back.

On the morning of 7 August, Cox woke up to find the Bering Strait completely calm. But there was no sign of the Inuit, who would guide her in their traditional kayaks.

“I’m all set to go and my crews are all set to go, but they’re not up and I’m freaking out,” says Cox.

It turned out that the Inuit had been up all night celebrating the prospect of seeing their relatives on Big Diomede for the first time in nearly 50 years. As they slept in, fog closed in and visibility dropped to 400m.

“We couldn’t see anything, we didn’t have radar, we had traditional canoes. Great Diomede is only 6.4km (4 miles) wide so everyone was really concerned that I might just miss the island.”

Cox looks across Bering Strait

Other Cox achievements

  • 1971 – At 15, Cox swims English Channel, breaking men’s and women’s world records
  • 1975 – first woman to swim across Cook Strait, New Zealand
  • 1977 – first to swim 12.8 km round Cape of Good Hope
  • 1987 – first to swim across Bering Strait
  • 1992 – swam Lake Titicaca from Bolivia to Peru

As Cox started swimming, she was worried to see her support boats making constant changes of course. None of the Inuit was old enough to remember the route to Great Diomede and their only navigational device was a rusty compass.

In the end, one of the American journalists accompanying Cox intervened to put the expedition on the right bearing.

Cox then heard the sound of a motor. And slowly, a Soviet launch appeared.

“I was elated when I saw the skiff emerge from the fog – finally the Russians are here,” she says.

On board was Vladimir McMillan, a half-American journalist for the Soviet news agency TASS, who was jumping up and down, shouting: “Lynne, don’t stop now!”

Cox was heading for a cliff about 50m ahead, but with the fog clearing slightly, she could make out a Soviet delegation waiting further away on a beach.

McMillan wanted Cox to swim to the welcoming committee, but the American medical team urged her to take the easy option and swim to the cliff.

“I kept thinking ‘I’m cold, I would like to finish this swim, but if I don’t touch somebody’s hand what have I done?'” she says. So she headed towards the Russians.

Lynne Cox
Cox now writes and talks about her open water swimming feats

The last 800m (0.5 mile) was the hardest part of the swim because of strong off-shore currents.

“I really did wonder how far I could go. I really did see my fingers go grey. Inside I was evaluating ‘Am I OK? Can I keep going? Can I do it?’

“I had experts around me, but there’s always the risk that you could go into cardiac arrest from hypothermia and it can happen really fast, so I was on edge that whole time.”

The Soviet delegation came into view. Cox reached the shore, but it was so rocky she couldn’t get out on her own.

“I extended my arm and two Russians in military uniform grabbed me,” says Cox. “I instantly felt this heat from their warm hands. One guy was putting his arm underneath me to steady me. People were throwing blankets and coats on top of me. I didn’t understand anything at all, except they were saying ‘welcome’.”

At the last minute, the Soviets had sent a top-level delegation, including KGB officials and sports stars. They had even prepared a small beach party.

Mikhail Gorbachev, Ronald Reagan
Soviet President Gorbachev praised Cox during his US visit

“They had set up tables on the beach for a picnic with samovars full of tea and little biscuits. They were ready to celebrate all afternoon, but I was standing there on the ice thinking, ‘Oh boy, this is getting cold.'”

Eventually, the Soviets let Cox go inside a tent to recover. A Soviet doctor, Rita Zakarova, covered Cox with hot-water bottles, put her in a sleeping bag, and then embraced her. For the American, the moment symbolised the entire trip.

“The whole idea was to have this human contact after so many years growing up afraid of the Soviets, and here was this person basically warming me up to get me back to life again,” she says.

The swim turned Cox into a Cold War celebrity in the United States and the Soviet Union.

When President Gorbachev travelled to Washington to sign a nuclear weapons treaty later that year, he and President Reagan raised a glass to toast the swimmer.

“She proved by her courage how close to each other our peoples live,” Gorbachev said.

July 31, 2012

Larisa Latynina won 18 Olympic medals in gymnastics for the Soviet Union, but she attended swimming Tuesday night. Michael Phelps was racing. He was trying to beat everyone in the pool and Latynina’s record as well. And when the moment came, she knew exactly what a great champion should do. She put on her lipstick.

For nearly half a century, no one approached the number of Olympic medals that Latynina won from 1956 to 1964. She was the first superstar in gymnastics at a time when womanly grace prevailed over teenage acrobatics. But Phelps tied her record Tuesday with a silver medal in the 200-meter butterfly and surpassed it with gold by swimming the anchor leg of the 4×200 freestyle relay.

Latynina joked in recent weeks that it was time for a man to be able to do what a woman had done long ago. And that it was too bad Phelps was not Russian.

“Forty-eight years is almost enough time to hold a record,” Latynina, 77, said earlier Tuesday by phone.

Later, she attended the swimming competition with her daughter, Tatyana. They wore matching blue shirts with RUSSIA across the front and white slacks, laughing when told that she still appeared fit enough to compete.

Latynina had hoped to congratulate Phelps and present him with his record-setting medal. But her daughter and others said that Olympic rules did not allow it. It seemed a shame, a grand moment to celebrate the most prolific Olympic champions squandered by red tape.

But Latynina remained gracious, fanning herself in the hot upper reaches of the Aquatics Center. “Phelps deserves the record,” she said through an interpreter. “He is such a talented sportsman.”

Then Latynina smiled.

“Among women, I’m sure I will stay No. 1 for a long time,” she said.

This year in New York, Latynina did meet Phelps and presented him with a medal she had won in a Soviet-American dual meet in 1962. She found him “very simple, smiley, lovely to talk to.” They discussed training and, Latynina said, Phelps acknowledged that he had wearied of swimming and was ready to retire after the London Games.

She understood.

“I think a person should go for sport only as long as they get pleasure from it,” Latynina said. “As soon as they stop enjoying it, they should stop.”

As she neared the loss of her record, Latynina actually gained broader attention than when she set it. Olympic television was in its infancy in her era, the cold war raged and the Soviet Union was a closed society. It took Olga Korbut and her defiant smiles at the 1972 Munich Games to counter the grim stereotype of athletes behind the Iron Curtain.

“She kind of got lost in history,” Paul Ziert, the publisher of International Gymnast magazine, said of Latynina. When the Soviet Union broke up, “we had forgotten about her.”

“If you don’t know anything about people, you lose interest in them,” Ziert said. “You just keep track of the number of medals they won, and nothing else.”

Latynina won nine Olympic gold medals, while Phelps now has 15. If not for the vagaries of history, Latynina might have had a career in ballet instead of gymnastics. She was born in 1934 and grew up in meager circumstances in Ukraine, which was whipsawed by the brutality of Stalin’s repression and Hitler’s invasion. After World War II, Latynina took up dance as an 11-year-old. When the ballet studio closed a year later, she became an athlete.

As a gymnast, Latynina performed with a dancer’s erect posture and classic lines. Her personality was commanding. She was beautiful and unwavering in the consistency of her routines. The Soviets were dominant, and no one was more accomplished than Latynina. It was a different sport, less demanding but more elegant. Women’s gymnastics was actually performed by women instead of girls.

When Latynina won the last 6 of her 18 career medals at the 1964 Tokyo Games, she was two months from her 30th birthday. Today, many gymnasts retire by 18. Some have even been known to take so-called brake drugs, delaying the onset of menstruation. Gymnasts like Latynina celebrated their maturity instead of trying to deny it.

“She was our first legend,” Bela Karolyi, who would help pioneer the acrobatic revolution of gymnastics as a coach of Nadia Comaneci in Romania, said of Latynina. “When she stepped out on the floor, all eyes were on her. She demanded attention and respect.”

Only Latynina and another legend, Vera Caslavska of Czechoslovakia, have twice won women’s gymnastics’ most coveted prize — the gold medal in the Olympic all-around competition. So determined was Latynina that she competed in the 1958 world championships while four months pregnant with Tatyana, keeping the news secret even from her coach, telling only her doctor.

“I couldn’t say anything because they wouldn’t have allowed me to participate,” Latynina said.

She did and won five gold medals.

“I consider them mine,” Tatyana Latynina said with a laugh. “We won them together.”

Korbut would bring circus acrobatics to women’s gymnastics with her back flips on the balance beam and uneven bars. And Comaneci would bring astonishing technical perfection to the 1976 Montreal Games. Latynina served as the Soviet coach at those Games and was later dismissed because her gymnasts could not match Comaneci’s individual supremacy.

“I don’t know why I should be blamed that Nadia was born in Romania, not Russia,” Latynina is reported to have said.

She has admitted a pang of regret that Comaneci, not herself, was named the greatest gymnast of the 20th century, telling reporters in her joking way that “Comaneci has very good P.R.”

Yet for gymnasts of a certain era and place, Latynina retains a pre-eminent loftiness.

“This is the standard we all try to achieve,” said Oksana Chusovitina, who competed for the Soviet Union, won a team gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Games as the Soviet era disintegrated and now, at 37, is competing for Germany at the London Games. “She performed so beautiful and grown-up. It was less complicated, less injury for kids. I wish for it now.”

As the 4×200-meter relay approached Tuesday, Latynina reached for her lipstick and makeup mirror. It was Phelps’s moment, but it was hers, too. As Phelps pushed the United States toward victory by three full seconds and won his record 19th medal, Latynina rose to her feet and applauded.

“It was a pleasure watching him,” she said, not appearing wistful. “I wasn’t thinking about this or that. I never held onto my record like that.”
