I'm inclined to think that it was fake, but I really want to be certain. If it was real, wouldn't it be pretty easy to find an article about it somewhere? I also seriously doubt that they would let anyone with a deadly weapon into that room. Plus, at the very end, someone in the next room came rushing out, as if they knew what had happened instantaneously... they could have been watching it via camera though... it could have been family? Are they the real Russian judges?
