A leaked document suggests Russia is planning on embarking on a manned mission to the Moon.

The document details plans to "conduct a demonstrative manned circumlunar test flight with the subsequent landing of cosmonauts on [the Moon’s] surface and their return to Earth" with a deadline of 2030. In the early days of the original space race, Russia look set to beat the US to the Moon when it became the first nation to put a man in space and to launch a satellite. Now, several decades on, can Russia finally fullfil its ambition to put a man on the Moon ?

"Plans to send cosmonauts to the Moon could help revive Russia’s space programme after a troubled period."

Encouraging news, although 2030 seems a pretty generous timescale. Perhaps they'll be able to achieve a landing on the Moon to celebrate Comrade Putin's 30th Glorious Year in power. I can just imagine the conversation between he and Tsar Barack the First. Now that's funny.
