Oh, it served its intended purpose perfectly - to transfer some amount of public money to some individual.


What kinda corrupt scenario are you imagining? :mrgreen: :)

TBH ...I couldnt imagine ANY reason (honest, or nefarious) for transporting a holy relic around on a warship. Totally inane thing to do. But I recalled reading somewhere about some WWII US Navy destroyer that had some kind of native american thing as a talisman- and it supposedly worked in protecting the ship in the war. So thats where I got the above notion from.

bye, bye Moskva. Too bad it wasn't the real Moskva, or at least Kremlin
