Sorry for double post., but:

BACK IN THE USSR? KEY SOVIET DOCUMENT IS MISSING

http://bigstory.ap.org/article/docum...ssing-archives

Quote:
The powerful Soviet Union may still exist after all — at least on paper.

Former Belarusian leader Stanislav Shushkevich says a historic 1991 document that proclaimed the death of the Soviet Union is missing from the archives.

Shushkevich discovered that the document was gone while working on his memoirs. He said he believes it was stolen — possibly by a former Belarusian official — probably with the intention of selling it to a collector.
*insert your "in soviet russia" joke or Simpsons' "USSR is back" video here*
