Probably it is made to create a case that "we can do this". Or maybe it
was just a test.

It looks like the most obvious way to crack Tor _right now_ and
_forever_ at low price is to perform a country-scale traffic
confirmation attack. Russia already has capability to do so. It's called
SORM. With this contract they possibly want to "do math" and simply make
it all work.
