AP PHOTOS: New Russian Army store opens in Moscow

MOSCOW (AP) — Perhaps in response to President Vladimir Putin's increasingly militaristic policies, The Russian Army Store opened earlier this summer in Moscow as an upmarket venue selling a wide range of patriotic goods — from mugs with Putin's portrait to limited-edition clothing like a leather jacket costing over $1,500.

The store seems to be doing good business attracting a varied crowd, from high school students to government officials who regularly come for gift-shopping.

Despite the ubiquitous advertising and prime location, on Moscow's main street near the Kremlin, the store would not reveal any information about its owners or managers.
