MOSCOW, December 1 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian-Chinese anti-terrorism exercises scheduled for 2007 will be held, not on a bilateral basis, but under the auspices of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the chief of Russia's General Staff said Thursday.
"We all have the objective of holding these exercises under the SCO," Yury Baluyevsky said. "These exercises will be aimed at fighting terrorism and eliminating its consequences."
The SCO is a regional security forum founded in Shanghai in July 2001 by the leaders of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Russia and China.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
