Moscow airport authorities are introducing lie-detector tests for travellers.
While holding a handset, passengers will be asked four simple questions, ranging from the innocuous (“Your name?”) to the sinister (“Have you lied to the authorities before?”) and the obvious (“Are you carrying weapons or narcotics?”).

Soon We’ll Pay the True Price of Air Travel
Scarcely audible amid the storm of financial scandal last week was the sound of Labour overshooting its target on greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Change review, a report on progress towards greener government, evaporated over Westminster like a vapour trail behind a jumbo jet.
In the review, the government admitted it would fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent by 2010 - a pledge in every manifesto since 1997.
