Russian anti-terror squads will be given genetically modified dogs to help crackdown on terrorism and drug smuggling.

The dogs will first be used in Siberia as drug and explosives sniffer dogs and will reportedly cost £80,000 each.

Kremlin's security services have received three Belgian Malinois, which were cloned by a South Korean professor, according to the Daily Express.

The three dogs come from a set of 500 cloned puppies at Sooam Biotech laboratories in Seoul.

However, before they can be used at crime scenes, the dogs will have to learn Russian, as they have been trained in Korean.

The cloned dogs were first unveiled at the Mammoth Museum in Yakutsk. 

Semyon Grigoryev, the museum director, told The Siberian Times: "These dogs have been recreated from the cells of the best Korean sniffer dogs, inheriting their unique abilities.

"They will be the first cloned service dogs in Russia."
