I've heard that one about the submarines and Pepsi before - although it may not have been Pepsi that time, I can't remember. (It may not have been Russia either...) They were supposedly surplus that the country was trying to use to pay off a debt, but the claimed value wasn't accepted and so the offer was rejected, or something.

(Obviously I'm not offering my vague recollections as proof - although I'm sure you'd all accept them as such anyway - but it does contribute to the UL-like nature of this).

(eta) That last one is the plot of Doctor Strangelove, surely?
