Why The Russian Interest?? Possibilities discussed

Interest from Russia in what is posted here has grown to the point that traffic from Russia is dwarfing the traffic from anywhere else.

So maybe some investors are curious about the tech in Russia.

Not quite sure why that is. One of the suggestions was that Putin is watching me. So, hello Mr. Putin, stop by, I have some good Vodka in the freezer.

Another possibility: Livemap is making some headway.  (which we are nearly certain has been using PicoP)

Another Suggestion. (Reddit) I like this one. Parts of Russia are getting a lot of Chinese immigrants. (If this is the case, I wonder why the same amount of attention isn't coming from China. Perhaps the degree or manner in which the internet is controlled in China is very different.)

ABC News (Much more at the source.)

The Chinese are invading Russia — not with tanks, but with suitcases.
It’s impossible to know the exact level of Chinese migration into the Russian Far East; Russia has not run a census in over a decade. But by all indications, a significant river of people is surging across the border.
The Moscow Carnegie Center, the only organization to launch an independent study, claimed that there were about 250,000 Chinese in Russia in 1997. The Interior Ministry has claimed that there are 2 million. Other estimates place the Chinese population at 5 million.
Regardless, the Federal Migration Service fears a flood. The service has repeatedly warned that the Chinese could become the dominant ethnic group in the Russian Far East in 20 to 30 years. Such an occurrence would require an annual influx of about 250,000 to 300,000 Chinese, less than one-third the rate that Shaikin currently claims.
There are reasons to believe that the flow will hit these levels, with at least tacit help from Beijing. The Russian Far East is becoming China’s safety valve, much like Mexico lets off population pressures with migration into the United States. China has more than 1.2 billion people — more than eight times Russia’s population. Only 7.4 million Russians populate the entire Russian Far East, versus more than 70 million in northeast China. The Russian Far East is comparatively empty, with only 1.3 people per kilometer. China’s Manchurian population has increased 13 percent in a little more than a decade.
Qualper attention or Phone release in Russia? (also from Reddit)
Translation below by Google
This Qualper QU1. As you might guess from the name, is the debut of a smartphone. And there she decided to place the camera in a very unusual place. How did she get there? Note the break in the rim, is in the left side of the upper end. Solid such centimeter two break. There is a built-in projector smartphone. This arrangement made it Qualper move the camera to the right. However, I do not understand why it was impossible to place the projector on the right and left of the camera, where it would look more logical. The projector is the cause and other features Qualper QU1: large thickness (12.8 mm) and weight (237 g). Other features QU1: 5,5 "Full HD-screen, 4000 mAh battery, 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, an eight chipset with 1.3 GHz (MediaTek MT6753, probably).
