The hunt for former glory.

As I was watching The Hunt for Red October, I read a story about the launch of a new Russian nuclear submarine. It is the first one to be launched by Russia since the Soviet Union was disbanded. This is an attempt to rebuild the sub fleet which has been in disrepair for years. It is also an attempt to recreate the former Soviet Union only a slightly more democratic one, something Putin is extremely fond of.
