A tank, which ran over two children in St. Petersburg this year, has been seized by a court from the head of a local patriotic group. Illegal weapons and a live crocodile were found in his home earlier.
This spring, the leader of the Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star) patriotic organization, Pavel Baranenko, organized tank rides in one of the parks on the bank of the Neva River in St. Petersburg, Russia. Thrill-seekers were asked to pay 300 rubles (just over $4) for a chance to sit atop a World War II era T-60 Soviet light tank as it traversed an obstacle course.
