Russia "will" develop a new Web browser for federal employees. The  news was published on infonews.ru.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Defense and FSB (formerly KGB). According to infonews, "several million rubles will be spent on creation of Russian Web browser". They are planning to use Mozilla's Firefox as the base. The official version is that they are not happy that popular browsers are sending to Google search engine statistics on the user's visits of the Web sites.

If this information is true, this is how you should read it: a group of people figured out how to get funding and split it between them. In a year or so the project will quietly fail, but Russia will have a couple of more millionaires.
