My guess is that it would relate to mind control as the mind apparently controls all peaceful and nonpeaceful human activity. Second might be ICBM and anti-ICBM development.

My guess: probably a project on how to monopolize the market for vodka (like Mexico monopolized tequila markets).
Seriously though: The russian gov. doesn\'t even have enough resources to properly defend their nuclear arsenal, let alone undertake any costly and major top secret military projects. The real top secret military projects we should worry about are the chinese: they spend loads of money on defense and certainly have the resources. They are also much more effective at keeping things hidden.

I agree on the idea the Russians are basically broke and the Chinese are who we should worry about. I was just reading about how the Chinese have built a Tokamak reactor and plan to test it very soon On that note what do you think China's most secret project is?
Russia to Mine the Moon
Russia plans to mine the moon for helium-3 and other sources of energy as it seeks to industrialize space, RIA-Novosti reported, citing the head of Energiya, the rocket and spaceship maker.
The next challenge for the country's space industry is to set up "industrialized" space facilities in "near space, near-Earth orbit and on the moon," the state-run news service cited Sevastyanov as saying.
The commercial benefits of helium-3 will pay for the cost of "prospecting" the moon, he said.
Energiya scientists and nuclear physicists from the Kurchatov Institute are already working on the commercial applications of the isotope on Earth, RIA said. (Bloomberg)
