Some important Russians who were supposed to attend The Farnborough Airshow in the UK were barred from doing so. The event's organisers say the decision was political. Expats working in Russia love the 13% flat rate of income tax, but that may change next year, when it's likely to be hiked for the first time in a decade and a half. The man who invaded the pitch during the World Cup final last night turns out to be a Russian-born prankster with a large online following.
