ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - A French navy ship of the type that Russia hopes to buy has arrived for a visit to St. Petersburg.

The Mistral amphibious assault ship docked Monday on the Neva River downtown, close to the Hermitage museum.

Russian officials are considering buying a Mistral ship and a license to build several others. It would mark the first such purchase from a NATO country.

The rumors of the deal have fueled concern in Georgia and other ex-Soviet nations that Russia may use the ship to strong-arm its neighbors.

The Mistral, which is capable of carrying more than a dozen helicopters along with dozens of tanks and other armored vehicles, is fit for missions intended to project Russian power.

MOSCOW, November 23 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian diesel-electric submarine from the Black Sea Fleet is being towed to the port of Novorossiisk after suffering an engine malfunction during sea drills, a Black Sea Fleet official said.

The Alrosa, a Kilo class diesel submarine, was on a training exercise in the Black Sea on Saturday when it reportedly experienced some problems with its jet propulsion system.

"The submarine is being towed in a surfaced position to the port of Novorossiisk. Its arrival is expected on Monday. Experts will establish the cause of the malfunction there," the source said.

A Russian Navy spokesman earlier said the situation on the submarine was under control and there was no danger to the crew.

He also said the submarine would continue the drills after the problem is fixed.

Alrosa, commissioned in 1990, is the only submarine in active service with the Black Sea Fleet. It is based at a Russian naval base in Sevastopol on Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.

The launch of a Proton-M carrier rocket bearing the European Eutelsat W7 satellite has been delayed, the Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said on Monday.

The launch was scheduled for Monday from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan.

"The launch of the European space vehicle has been postponed by the Kazakh side for an indefinite period," Roscosmos said.

The agency also said that the reason for the delay was unclear, as the areas in which the rocket's spent parts would fall into had already been agreed on with Kazakh authorities.

"This is not the first time the launch of a spacecraft has been threatened with failure for reasons that do not depend on Russia," Roscosmos said.

According to unofficial data, however, the launch could take place on Tuesday, at 17:19 p.m. Moscow time (14:19 p.m. GMT).

Russian-American joint venture International Launch Services (ILS) had signed a contract with the Eutelsat satellite operator to launch the Eutelsat W7 to upgrade its existing satellite grouping.

The launch was expected to be the eighth Proton launch in 2009 and the 349th overall for the famed Russian carrier rocket.

Eutelsat W7 was manufactured by Thales Alenia Space on a Spacebus 4000C4 platform.

The 5.5-ton satellite features up to 74 Ku-band transponders (12 kW) and has a lifetime of about 15 years (up to 2024).

It will provide digital broadcasting for customers in Europe, including Russia, Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East.

Eutelsat W7 is designed to replace the SESAT 1 satellite, which has been in orbit since 2000.

http://www.itar-tass.com/eng/level2.html?NewsID=14558561&PageNum=0

23.11.2009, 08.57 MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) - Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill /Cyril/ is expected to attend the funeral of the Reverend Daniil Sysoyev, the father superior of St Thomas’s Church in southern Moscow who was killed by an unknown masked gunman right inside his church in the late hours of Thursday.

His Holiness Kirill is due to come to the St Peter and Paul’s Church in the district of Yasenevo at around noon.

A remembrance service will be chanted prior to his arrival there. It will be conducted by the Patriarch’s aide, Archbishop Arsenius of Istra.

The slain Reverend Sysoyev’s father, priest Alexy Sysoyev is one of the clergymen in St Peter and Paul’s Church

The Reverend Daniil Sysoyev will then be buried at Moscow’s Kuntsevskoye cemetery.

Father Daniil was 35 years old, and he has left a wife and three children.

The raising of money to help his children and the family has begun in the St Peter and Paul’s Church, St Thomas’s Church and some other parishes we he had did his service.

For three days after the murder, Muscovites came to St Thomas’ to bid final farewell to the Reverend Sysoyev Jr. Public admittance to the coffin with his body that was placed in the church he supervised was open for the past day and a half.

Mournful people brought literally tons of flowers with them, practically covering all the approaches to the building with petals.

The Rev Sysoyev Jr. was known as a Russian Orthodox missionary and a specialist on Islam who took part in numerous disputes and discussions with representatives of that religion.

Some of the followers of Islam who participated in those discussions would convert to the Orthodox Christian faith later.

As the remembrance prayers were read in the St Thomas’s Church during the weekend, one could see many representative of Caucasian peoples among the believers.

The Rev Sysoyev Jr.’s death gave a surprising push to the Russians’ religious feelings, as Moscow priests reported a sharp increase in the numbers of laymen who attended services over the weekend.

Priests believe Thursday’s tragedy impelled the people to recall their Orthodox Christian identity.

The Rev Sysoyev Jr. was shot and killed at around 23:00 hours Thursday and the choirmaster of his church, Vladimir Strelbitsky, was severely wounded. The latter man is still staying in hospital.

Moscow City’s best detectives have been drawn into the effort to investigate the case.

Investigators say religious hatred was the most probable motive behind the murder.
