Moscow’s cabbies continue to suffer from what appears to be tampering with the GPS system on the part of the Russian government. This meddling is done in an effort to shield certain Russian officials from intelligence gathering efforts and potential assassination attempts.

It follows media claims the Kremlin has been trying to confuse global positioning systems (GPS) to thwart possible attacks on top officials.
However, the latest wave of reported cases appears to affect a wider area in Moscow.
