Mashable said Russia was sending a "death dealing" robot with the power to shoot guns to the International Space Station.

The stories were written after the Russian deputy prime minister overseeing military and space activities, Dmitry Rogozin, posted on Facebook and Twitter about the country's humanoid robot, Fyodor.

"Fine motor skills and decision-making algorithms are still being improved," he tweeted.

But maybe we shouldn't call upon Arnold Schwarzenegger to save us just yet.

Rogozin has previously suggested that Russia will send this robot to the space station in 2021.

Pravda claims this is still the target date and that Fyodor will ride into space aboard Russia's next-generation spacecraft, named Federation.
