Russian Orthodox Church insists Paratroopers include inflatable churches in their arsenal.

I must admit this made me smile:

The Russian orthodox church insists on including mobile inflatable churches in paratroopers arsenal.

“Right now, such cathedrals are not part of our arsenal. But the church is pressing this issue. If the temples are included in our staff list, we could paradrop them from planes together with motorized cannons and armored vehicles,” said thr Official spokesman of MVD press-service’ department for paratroopers, Alexandr Kucherenko, to Interfax.
