Vladmir putin

Russian president, Vladmir Putin is looking into sending away foreign software companies from Russia as soon as possible. The move is to cut down the usage of foreign software companies in Russia, especially Microsoft products, as he believed they could be used in Cyber warfare against Russia by the U.S.


The president believes that Microsoft products like Windows and office could be used to infiltrate Russia systems.

In a document obtained from the US Homeland security, it was revealed that Russian hackers used malware injected into a Microsoft product to shut down the Ukrainian electrical grid last year, and Putin thinks such tactics can be used by the Americans on Russia as well, NBC reports.

Russia is now in the process of getting rid of both Microsoft products from local or state-controlled level, and will push for the adoption of a local solution that can be easily controlled and looked into in the case of spying.

The social network for professionals, LinkedIn have recently been banned in Russia. This is one of the company Microsoft just purchased, and now it is going to ban the Microsoft products too.

In a recent video published by the Daesh group, ISIS, the terrorist group has threatened the Russian president of homicide and also threatens its citizens too in the 9-minute video. 


The video shows the terrorist launching attacks on vehicle, and tents. Towards the end of the video, a masked terrorist then said;

 Listen, Putin. We will come to Russia and kill you in your homes.

The video later ends with a man driving through the desert and yelling, while wagging his finger;

Oh Brothers, carry out jihad and kill and fight them.

ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the video, but the video was published on a telegram account used by the group in the past.


The daughter of the Russian president, Maria Putin, might be feeling the heat at her Dutch apartment as she needed to flee her £2million apartment with the husband after the news of her staying in the penthouse filter out to the Dutch nation. Netherlands is currently mourning the death of more than 300 people that were shot down last week by Pro-Russian Ukrainian separatist.

The daughter who was said to be living 20miles away from the airport where the doomed MH17 flight departed. Speaking to one of Maria's neighbours, she said :

She moved in last year and it was all kept quiet for a while. But once it became known who she was, there was certainly some disquiet. And now this has happened. She is obviously not responsible for her father’s actions but we don’t want ­demonstrations around here.

The location of Maria and her husband Jorrit Faasen who lived in the riverside of Voorschoten on the outskirts of the Dutch capital, fled amid the mounting fury after Ukrainian activist published her house address on various websites.

Many have blamed the flight mishap on President Putin saying he provided the missiles that killed almost 300 people which 193 passengers happens to be Dutch. Responding to the allegation, the Russian ambassador to Britain, Alexander Yakovenko said the allegation by the west did "Not Hold Water"

Alexander also said that : 

Russia doesn’t supply weapons to de facto authorities in Ukraine. No evidence whatsoever has been presented that the Russian government has been doing this.
