Chinese media reported that the advanced missile is now in the hands of the Russians who are reportedly working to reverse engineer it. What a weird report. And what odd timing.
Russian media reports quoted Chinese media Sina saying that the missile was taken by Russia for "reverse engineering."
Bashkortostan, in the Ural region, is the most populous republic in Russia, with more than 4 million residents.
