Pricey iPad Cases Ordered

A Volgograd region company that produces knitted woolen goods has received an order for 50 individually designed iPad cases from the region administration, website LifeNews.ru reported Wednesday.

The Volgograd administration paid the company, called Uzory, 42,500 rubles ($1,383) for the woolen tablet cases.

"Every item will be exclusive, and skilled hands will do the embroidery — stripes, flowers, lace," said Uzory director Raisa Kazimirova, LifeNews.ru reported.

An administration representative told the website that the cases are not for members of the administration but will be given away as gifts to regional delegates visiting Volgograd for the 69th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad.

Another member of the administration called the idea of woolen iPad cases "excellent," since they will protect iPads from the "severe Volgograd winters."


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
