Growing up in the former Soviet Union, I still remember how hard Russian always tried to prove it was the first to invent things. Be that electricity or sewage. There was even a joke that Russian is the birthplace of elephants.

This time however, I think congratulations are in order: by killing its political dissident Alexander Litvinenko with a radioactive substance, it may have rightfully earned its place to be the world’s first perpetrator of state-sponsored nuclear terrorism.

And you thought Iran would be the first. Way to go Mother Russia!
