End Of The World Cult Stand Off

Pyotr Kuznetsov leader of the Russian cult The True Russian Orthodox Church.

A Russian cult that calls itself "True Russian Orthodox Church" have sealed themselves up in a cave 400 miles south-east of Moscow and are threatening to blow it up if the police interfere.

They believe the world is going to end next May.
The 30 cult members including 4 children have enough food and supplies to last the winter .
They claim to have found hidden messages in the Steven Spielberg movie "War of the worlds" and take it as a prophesy and not a work of fiction by H.G.Wells.

Steven Spielberg has declined an offer from the group to join them but the movie's star, Tom Cruise arrived in Moscow after his invite but was detained by Russian police.

The group was founded by a former engineer, Pyotr Kuznetsov who had fallen out with the Russian Orthodox Church when he found some of their teachings a little too orthodox. He ordered his group into the cave but wasn't stupid enough to go in himself.

He is now in custody and is undergoing psychiatric examinations as should anyone who has voluntarily watched the War of the world movie more than once.
