A leading Russian hypersonics expert has been arrested on suspicion of treason, the state-controlled TASS news agency reported on Friday.

Andrei Shiplyuk heads the hypersonics laboratory at the Novosibirsk Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, according to the institute’s website, and has in recent years coordinated research to support the development of hypersonic missile systems, Reuters reports.

The Russian news agency cited one of Shiplyuk’s colleagues as saying searches had been conducted at the institute.

Last month Dmitry Kolker, another Novosibirsk-based physicist, died of pancreatic cancer shortly after being arrested on suspicion of treason.

From the fact the Marathas murdered 400,000 people in the decade before Britain arrived and the Mughals were also in your country.

You tell me. Which countries? China didn't do any better during that period, arguably they did worse and were invaded by the Japanese Empire.

As long as they were Hindus of the correct caste and not Sikh or Muslim.

So you're saying they rounded you up and gassed you for 200 years? The Nazis killed 6 million in 5 years doing this, so how come you are still here then?

You would happily complain if Britain was doing it 200 years ago though. That's called hypocrisy.

We shouldn't have helped them so much in WWII. They were at least as bad as the Nazis, we should have let them kill each other.
so your logic is just bcos some one is committing suicide it is ok to kill them directly as they would die anyway. if you look at the reasons/justifications given when colonization took place one of them was they were making the natives civilized by destroying their civilization!

(This is not just limited to countries, it is the same for religions as well. Each one claims that everyone else are barbarians and they are the ones who know god.)

Problem is that you think we differentiate between nazis and british, well we dont. It is just west's assumption that their propaganda that they are good and others are bad always works. Hard truth is that, winner gets to write the history. If germany had won they would have said the same thing about british.

British rule, 30 million dead from man-made famines alone, 'official' figures.

So if they were all man-made, you must still be making them in India, since 7,000/day still die. That equates to 511 million over 200 years. OMG the BJP must be fvcking Maoist Stalinist Nazi Pol Potters or something!

I don't excuse empires, they were just something that everyone did one time in history. We were invaded and India invaded others before the British Empire was even a twinkle in the then Monarch's eye. You do however overestimate the amount of civilisation present at the time of the invasion. It was very much a frying pan to fire situation at worst and quite possibly the other way round at best.

That's ironic given that you've just described your own posture on the issue of historical wrongs of the British Empire vs current wrongs of the Russian Empire (yes, it's still going really, never ended).

If Germany had won WWII, you wouldn't be here to have this conversation with me because your skin is the wrong colour.

That's the effect of poverty. It was way worse than today during British rule. Stuff like this is basically what we call "poverty" and "destitution". It means poor people die.

What I am talking about is man-made famine. We don't have man-made famine in Indian anymore. It only existed during British rule.
