“Even the fund didn’t help us.” 5 reasons for refusing targeted assistance

Are you in a critical situation with treatment/surgery/medication, but no charitable foundation accepts applications for targeted assistance? We will tell you why not every application to the fund ends with an open collection and what problems may arise.

The work of the address department of the fund “AiF. Good heart» is absolutely transparent, and each application for assistance goes through more than one stage of medical and legal verification. But even according to our statistics, only one request out of ten passes this test. Therefore, we decided to analyze 5 main reasons why a charitable foundation (including AiF. Kind Heart) may refuse targeted assistance.

Reason number 1. The foundation does not deal with such diseases

Almost every charitable foundation has its own priority areas for targeted assistance. 

Sometimes desperate parents of seriously ill children apply simultaneously to all the funds they can find, and spend a lot of time in vain — receiving rejection after rejection. Sometimes residents of distant regions turn only to large federal funds, not even knowing that someone in their region is already successfully engaged in the desired direction.

If the disease with which you need help is not included in the priority nosologies of the BF “AiF. Good heart, then the employees of the targeted assistance department will definitely advise — where else can you apply or they will transfer the application to the Family Accompanying Department, where they will help with legal or psychological support. & nbsp;

Reason number 2. Such assistance can be provided under compulsory medical insurance

It often turns out that a family does not even suspect about the benefits that they are already entitled to by law, or that they need surgery and medicines can be obtained under compulsory medical insurance and state guarantees. 

Employees of charitable foundations usually check the possibility of receiving assistance from the state and the availability of regional benefits. And, if the family is still entitled to assistance under the compulsory medical insurance program, then the fund has the right to refuse targeted assistance. But, for example, in «AiF. Good heart» in this case, we offer free consultations of our lawyer so that the family has support during the preparation of documents for preferential treatment.

Usually the exceptions to this — those cases when patients should receive assistance from the state, but at the time of applying to the fund there is no time for this. For example, all patients with cystic fibrosis are legally entitled to a free Ursofalk drug, but in some regions our patients cannot receive either it or even generics for months. This situation threatens not just the health, but the lives of children whom our foundation regularly helps. And so in such cases «AiF. Good heart» opens targeted fees to buy a supply of medicine for at least a few months in advance. And be sure to involve the lawyer of our foundation in resolving the issue with the regional Ministry of Health, so that the family can continue to receive treatment under compulsory medical insurance on time, as expected. 

Reason number 3. Problems with documents

Detailed legal and medical examination of documents in the fund should take place in several stages. And problems with the provided documents can arise on any of them.

Outdated medical certificates and extracts, no family income certificate or proof of disability, no documents confirming the relationship of the applicant/guardian and the patient — this list of problems can go on and on. 

It is important for our foundation to observe the principles of reliability and transparency: we are responsible for each targeted collection with our reputation! And, if parents are reluctant to contact doctors and lawyers, refuse to provide the necessary documents or are not interested in communicating with the employees of the — this is a valid reason for refusing to help.

Reason #4. The foundation cannot arrange treatment in a certain clinic or country

Sometimes the foundation receives applications in which parents or medical professionals immediately insist on rehabilitation in only one specific clinic or country. And they categorically refuse to consider any other options proposed by doctors, whom the foundation turns to for a second (and sometimes third) opinion. 

If “AiF. Good heart» already works with a clinic that the parents themselves have chosen for treatment or surgery, we still carefully check the validity of this choice. Sometimes both we and independent medical experts are sure that the same treatment can be obtained closer to home, cheaper and better, but parents insist on their choice only. In this case, there is a chance that the fund will most likely not approve the targeted collection. 

Reason #5: Fundraising is too big or too urgent

No fund, even the largest and most famous, can help everyone. And dealing with complex and urgent fees always requires additional human and financial resources. Search for partners, organization of collection and PR cooperation with those who can support it, creation of materials, publications on crowdfunding platforms and TV broadcasts — all of this requires the simultaneous efforts of many fund staff. No foundation manages to make such collections often and certainly cannot be organized in a couple of days. 

Therefore, we, too, are periodically forced to refuse in response to desperate calls: “In two weeks we need six million rubles for the operation. Help! 

Alas, the — it's not a magical bottomless wallet. A large address fee — it is also the selfless efforts of hundreds of donors and dozens of volunteers. But even in the most difficult situations, we try not to leave without support any of those who turned to us. Even if our foundation cannot provide financial assistance — we always have experienced psychologists for emotional support, excellent lawyers to fight for the rights of patients and a human attitude towards everyone who believes in us. 

And we are — not alone!

What gender equality strategy has the Ministry of Labor developed?

The Ministry of Labor of Russia is developing a strategy to ensure gender equality. About this on Monday, August 8, writes RBC. According to them, the document will be aimed at implementing the principle of the rights and freedoms of the sexes in all spheres of life, increasing the economic independence of women, their political activity, as well as overcoming stereotypical ideas about the social roles of Russian women.

Who initiated the strategy? 

The first deputy minister of labor and social protection Olga Batalina is responsible for developing the strategy. In addition, for a deeper study of the issue, an interdepartmental working group has been created, which includes representatives of government bodies, the scientific and expert community. According to the project, the strategy is planned to be implemented in two stages: from 2023 to 2026. and from 2027 to 2030 

The program will include tasks to improve legislation, amend national projects and state programs, conduct scientific research on ensuring equal rights and freedoms of both sexes. 

Which areas for protecting the interests of women will be included in the strategy?

According to the idea, the document will reflect the main areas of action in the interests of Russian women and will consider topical issues. The strategy will highlight ten areas: 

New opportunities for women in the labor market

The agency is ready to help Russian women overcome occupational segregation, participate in flexible forms of employment, and increase the competitiveness of the fairer sex in the labor market. 

The document mentions concepts such as “glass ceiling”; and “sticky floor”. The first concept implies invisible and unmarked boundaries that impede the career growth of Russian women. The second term refers to situations where a woman remains in low positions for a long time. Thus, according to the Ministry of Labor, “the proportion of women holding government positions and civil and municipal service positions is more than 70%. However, among senior managers it is small,” the ministry's materials say.  

In addition, according to Rosstat, women's wages in Russia last year averaged 72.5% of men's earnings. 

The agency invites companies to develop corporate programs to promote gender equality and increase their social responsibility towards family women. 

The growth of the role of women in the field of entrepreneurship

It is planned to increase the integration of women in promising creative areas (media, information technology, etc.), as well as to take new measures to support entrepreneurs in the field small, medium, social and family businesses. There is a desire to expand women's access to financial resources. 

Meanwhile, according to the Federal Tax Service, the share of women among entrepreneurs in the Russian small business sector is 40% at the end of last year. 

Conditions for quality education for women

The Ministry of Labor sees the need to introduce STEM education (an educational model that combines natural sciences and engineering subjects into a single system — ed. note) for Russian women in general education schools and vocational education institutions.

In addition, the department is confident that women need to create conditions for obtaining vocational education in advanced areas of the economy, which will subsequently allow them to get a well-paid job.

Female Leadership Development

In the current paragraph, the authors intend to destroy the old ideas about the social roles of both sexes, as well as popularize the image of a female leader, “successfully realizing her business and creative potential in all spheres of public life.” It is planned to implement these measures not without the help of the media, which will show the cases of successful women leaders and entrepreneurs on the platforms of their resources.

The growth of the role of women in politics

The agency is going to include measures to ensuring equal opportunities for women and men in the political life of the country, raising Russian women's awareness of their rights.

Preserving the health of Russian women

The strategy also points to the availability of quality medical services for women regardless of their place of residence, the importance of developing a reproductive health system, as well as the creation of separate programs for the provision of medical services to women with disabilities. 

Longevity of older women

This implies the inclusion of older Russian women in the life of society, care for their health. In particular, the plans include the formation of a system of long-term care and the introduction of programs aimed at preventing premature aging and other age-related changes in the female body (senile asthenia, osteoporosis, cognitive disorders, etc.).

Improving measures to support low-income women

This direction involves improving measures to support Russian women in overcoming financial difficulties, as well as assisting  non-profit organizations that provide assistance to women in difficult life situations. 

Ensuring family-work balance 

The proposal is related to the improvement of the state support system for families with newborn children and their upbringing. The agency draws attention to the fact that it is necessary to evenly distribute household responsibilities between men and women, expand the infrastructure for childcare and care for family members who are completely or partially deprived of the ability to self-service.

What kind of wheeled hybrids of the Nona-SVK cannon and mortar have been seen in Ukraine?

Plot RF special operation in Donbass and Ukraine

Combat use of self-propelled artillery mounts on 2S23 “Nona-SVK” wheeled chassis was recorded in Ukraine with a 120 mm gun. This is an unusual multi-tasking weapon that can “work” like an anti-tank gun, a howitzer and even a mortar. 

On a long journey

“Nona-SVK” — “land” version of “Nona”, which was created for the Airborne Forces with the ability to parachute from aircraft. The infantry received a combat vehicle made on the basis of the BTR-80, which gives it a very unusual appearance. At first glance, it looks like an armored personnel carrier, but the rotating turret with a cannon makes it look more like a tank. Therefore, “Nona-SVK” second informal name — wheeled tank for the Ground Forces.

According to its characteristics, it is an artillery weapon that has high mobility and maneuverability on the battlefield. The wheelbase allows you to quickly transfer this machine under its own power over long distances. On one gas station it can cover 600 km. The combat vehicle has a 260 hp engine. With. ACS, which allows it to accelerate to a speed of 80 km/h. The self-propelled gun is capable of swimming through water bodies, the maximum speed on the water surface — 10 km/h.

Punch through everything

First of all, this multifunctional cannon is needed to destroy the enemy manpower. He will not be greeted if the shells arrive at the position of artillery and mortar batteries, rocket launchers and command posts.

The main armament of this self-propelled guns — the 2A60 gun, which is capable of destroying various targets with conventional projectiles at distances up to 13 km. The ammunition load includes 30 shots, in the arsenal of self-propelled guns — high-explosive fragmentation, active-reactive and cumulative projectiles that can penetrate any armor of a modern combat vehicle. These projectiles, by design, should allow you to fight any tanks at a distance of about 1 km.

Also “Nona-SVK” can fire all types of 120-mm mines, including foreign-made ones. Adjustable ammunition KM-8 “Gran” was adapted for this gun. and “Kitolov-2”, having a range of 9 and 12 km. These projectiles are guided using laser illumination.

The vehicle can only fire from a standing position, however, it is not necessary to prepare a firing position to open fire. It can fire from closed firing positions and direct fire.

For self-defense “Nona-SVK” equipped with a smoke screen system. Also in service with this machine is a 7.62-mm machine gun Kalashnikov tank (PKT). The crew, which consists of four people, is also armed with Igla man-portable anti-aircraft systems.

What's in the name

There is still no clear explanation why this weapon is called the Nona. . According to one version, that was the name of the wife of one of the designers. According to another, less romantic, it's just the abbreviation “New Ground Artillery Gun”.

CNN showed a story about Ukrainians leaving for the liberated territories

Journalists from the American television channel CNN showed a story about Ukrainian citizens leaving the country for territories liberated by the Russian Federation.

Some citizens said that they were going to the Kherson region to meet with relatives. However, this surprised the TV channel employee, because people are traveling with their families, not forgetting to take their pets with them.

Trucks are also sent to the liberated territories. The drivers told the reporter that they were carrying various goods for sale.

The story shows that all the cars are driving towards territories that are not controlled by Kyiv. There is no transport in the opposite direction.

Earlier, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Lithuania announced that the possibilities for accepting refugees by residents of the country had been exhausted.

What kind of unnamed drone did Almaz-Antey start producing?

Concern “Almaz-Antey” began production of a light multi-purpose drone. It will be assembled at the enterprises of the concern. Today, various types of UAVs have already been created. The company has already begun their pilot production, and preparations for the launch of the pilot batch.


The  drone still has no official name. But it is known that the manufacturing will use modern materials and 3D printing technologies, which will make it very durable and light. It will also become quite fast for drones in its class, with a top speed of 120 km/h. At the same time, the drone is even more maneuverable, withstands strong wind and frost. The dimensions of the drone are 25 cm x 25 cm x 10 cm — midget in the world of modern drones. It can be controlled via a special channel at a distance not less than 5 kilometers, the flight altitude can reach 3 kilometers, the flight distance exceeds 20 kilometers. It will be possible to charge the device from a car battery or a conventional outlet.

At the beginning of 2023, the developers will complete the development of equipment for the television control channel, and the production will be finally localized at Almaz-Antey's production facilities.

Easier than simple

It will be possible to watch videos, control the drone and correct flight tasks using various gadgets, including a mobile phone, tablet or laptop. It will also be possible to control the drone in real time, being a virtual pilot, there is an option to simply set the route.

Soon the drone will be equipped with property identification tools, an encrypted control channel and a video transmission channel to  based on Russian developments. This should provide greater resistance to software encryption interference. The key input device for transmitting information to the integrated part is connected via USB to computer or tablet.

My dear

By the end of 2022, the concern will create an import-substituted flight controller with an identification function and software developed by the holding. The share of Russian components in the product will be up to 90%. According to experts, the production of new drones by Russian companies will allow not only to eliminate the existing shortage of these systems, but to enable to repair them without time delays.

Where it comes in handy

Theoretically such a UAV can be used in many industries. Given the variety of uses of drones, it can be intelligence, agriculture, and geodetic work. However, most likely, the main purpose of the drone — military. It will be useful for reconnaissance and target designation in to help units in Ukraine. In fact, small drones, especially multicopters, have proven to be extremely in demand by the military.

Deadly rain. Did the workers in the sewers have a chance to escape?

The general director of the contractor, whose three workers died on Sunday in the sewer, was detained, the press service of the investigative committee reports. A 38-year-old businessman may be charged under the article "violation of safety rules for conducting work, resulting in the death of two and more persons".

How the sewers are arranged and whether the workers had a chance to escape, aif.ru found out from explorer of urban underground tunnels, digger Nikita Dubas.

Valeria Vershinina, aif.ru: —   This is a violation of security rules. What are they in this case?

Nikita Dubas: — According to the instructions of Mosvodostok, it is forbidden to be in similar systems if precipitation is likely to occur. The flow rate increases based on the increase in the water level. Initially, there is less than half a meter of water in the collector, but due to rain it can fill up to 100%. In this case, on August 7, a rainstorm occurred, which caused a rapid rise in the water level in the tunnels of small diameter — up to 2.5 meters. The workers did not take into account the weather conditions: when the water level began to rise, a pandemonium formed at the observation well. Several workers were able to get out, others needed the help of rescuers, and the remaining three people were washed away in the sewer by a stream of water. They were sucked to the bottom of the tunnel, where the dead could no longer control the situation.

— Do mobile and gps work in the sewer?

      In case of getting into such a stream of water, should not rely on GPS or mobile communication, the network in the sewerage does not catch.

— Then there is no chance to escape in such situations?

— The only salvation may be to cling to the first minutes of  any fence, stairs. Next, a person should try to climb under the manhole to the manhole cover, from there report himself or try to open it, which is also not always safe, since such a system regularly passes under roads and under pedestrian boulevards. Being in the  collector, a person cannot identify where the hatch leads; such hatches are not signed and not marked. You can open it and immediately die under the wheels of a speeding car.

“I don’t want 30, I want 300.” Is an era of teacher shortage coming in Russia?

There is a shortage of teachers in schools in a number of regions of the country, especially in mathematics, physics, Russian and foreign languages. To solve the problem, the Cabinet of Ministers has created a Concept for the Training of Pedagogical Personnel for the Education System until 2030 .

On the eve of the new academic year, aif.ru spoke with experts in education and teachers and learned how they see the way out of the situation of personnel shortage of teachers.

The region is different for the region


Far from on the entire territory of the Russian Federation, this problem arose. Basically, we are talking about the Far Eastern, Northwestern, Siberian, Urals and Southern federal districts. Here, there is a shortage of teachers, and the salaries of teachers did not grow as fast as as in other regional specialists.

And, for example, in the  Magadan and Sakhalin regions, Moscow, and also the Nenets, Chukotka and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs, the salary level of teachers amounted to more than 85 thousand rubles last year. And this that time         when teachers in the North-Caucasian Federal District, in the republics of Adygea, Kalmykia, Mari El                Mordovia, Altai Territory, Ivanovo, Kurgan, Pskov, Smolensk and  rubles.

 the problem of lack of subjects has another side — those teachers who now work in schools are mostly elderly: more than 650 thousand teachers have reached retirement age.

To solve this, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the Concept for the Training of Pedagogical Personnel for the Education System until  2030 . The document states that now the training of teaching staff in our country is carried out on the basis of 229 universities and 440 colleges of various departmental affiliations. But many graduates don go to schools. Yes and the knowledge that teachers receive often does not meet the expectations of employers and parents of students. The concept suggests that the requirements for training of teachers will be the same for all educational institutions.

“It is planned to strengthen the subject and practical training of teachers: to make mandatory such disciplines as “Russian language and culture of speech”, “Classroom management”, “Working with parents”, “Inclusion”, to improve the system of targeted education , especially in the most scarce pedagogical specialties, to use mechanisms for securing novice teachers in profession», — it says in the explanation of the adopted concept.

Among the measures that will allow attracting more graduates to — — for example, targeted training. A greater number of students will study on the direction of the university from the educational institution. Students will be taught modern digital technologies, and students-teachers will devote at least half of their time at the university to studying the subject they plan to teach.

“The work has already begun. With we are preparing a plan for the implementation of the concept with and will present it within within six months  — — declared Head of the Ministry of Education Sergey Kravtsov.

«I don 30, I want 300»

It was with these words that a former English teacher of one of the schools in Chelyabinsk answered the question of an aif.ru correspondent. According to the young teacher, she left the school at the end of the last academic year, not because the prestige of the profession had fallen, but only because of insufficient salary.  Before the pandemic, I received an invitation to work in China  — Elena says. — However, for for obvious reasons the relocation did not work out. I was promised a salary that 10 times more than I received at school. I and know Chinese, I think that my knowledge is worth more than what they offer me for teaching children in municipal school. Our teachers — all pensioners who work because they cannot afford a modest pension. In the winter at school, in the summer in the garden. I want more».

«It depresses the fact that the work of a teacher is not respected»

Elena Istyagina-Eliseeva, Deputy Chairman of the Commission of the Civic Chamber of Russian Federation on physical culture and healthy lifestyle promotion, scientific director of the Institute of Sports Management and Law of the Higher School of Economics, believes that often experienced teachers of general education schools broadcast a rather pessimistic view of the personnel potential of receivers, note the poor preparation of graduates of pedagogical universities, the lack of desire for self-improvement. “As my very mature, 35-year-old school teacher colleague said, “They don’t work the way we do.” with pioneer enthusiasm» — comments Istyagin-Eliseev aif.ru. — And, unfortunately, the main task of young teachers is to earn money. But here you can understand them. For example, in the Chernozem region, an English teacher with a load of 32 hours, taking into account the additional payment to a young specialist, receives a net 20,000 rubles. In the Volga region, the base salary is from 6500 to 11000 rubles. With all additional payments, again, not more than 20,000 rubles. Actually, this analysis can be completed. Work on 2 rates — means to burn out in 2-3 years. The wage situation quickly cools the most ardent romantics. So it turns out that today it is beneficial for pensioners to stay in school: an increase in the pension, plus additional payments for merits, give 60-80 thousand rubles a month. As one of the  heads of the Pedagogical School bitterly jokes: "Young professionals are more willing to trade — stand behind the counter for 40 thousand rubles in mode 2 2».

In the opinion of the Deputy Chairman of the Commission of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, pedagogical universities accept a contingent with a very low USE score. Thus, those who did not enter the  prestigious» university entrants submit their documents to "ped" to get a higher education. And then, after working in the specialty for a year, maximum three, they run away from the school. It is depressing that the work of a teacher is not respected.

«It is difficult for young teachers to work with parents — says Istyagina-Eliseeva.   You need to be in control of yourself and to know psychology in order to gently and flexibly explain to modern dads and mothers the reasons for their child's lagging behind. Yes and in in working with parents these days — it is a separate art. I think that universities need to strengthen the subjects that would help the future teacher to behave properly with the parental staff. Nevertheless, the masters of school pedagogy note that young teachers are in great need of the school — children love them with all the gaps in knowledge and pedagogical experience.

Separately, I note that the issue of aging of the teaching staff is not easy. On the one hand, the country's leadership raises the retirement age and actively promotes the extension of active longevity, including working age. And c the other is looking for an opportunity to rejuvenate the teaching staff.

I think that you need to look not in passport, but at qualifications. There are retired teachers who do an excellent job with educational and educational tasks. There are also young teachers who, despite the lack of life experience, do an excellent job.

“Online makes it possible for children from the outback to learn”

Dmitry Danilov, CEO and  founder of an online school, is sure that online learning will allow students in small towns to get the necessary knowledge, regardless of  a good teacher in school.

“I see the introduction of online education in schools as one of the optimal and alternative ways out of this situation. The evolution of education leads to  the emergence of numerous EdTech-projects around the world and in Russia in particular.

In fact, we all know the lack of good teachers and tutors at affordable prices in small towns, at least it is clear to those who live in such settlements. This is especially true for subjects in a foreign language, in particular, English. I from the small town of Cheboksary, and this problem was clear to me. Accordingly, students in small towns are less likely to get a good education and quality preparation for final exams in order to enter a prestigious university. And almost everyone has access to the Internet.

Online education, according to Danilov, has its pros and cons.


< p>— Don't waste time and money on the road.

— The possibility of self-organization of the schedule, because recordings of webinars remain and their you can watch at any time.

— You can study with good teachers from all over the country. This is especially true for small settlements where the school may be very far away or simply absent.

Cons of online education:

— The need to develop self-discipline.

— There may be more lessons than offline.

— A large amount of information for self-study. There is very little structured material at the disposal of the student that will actually be useful to him.

"If we talk in to the future of school education, then I see — a hybrid of online and offline education. Socialization is needed, and the educational element must also remain. The second important part of any educational process — upbringing. Third — the teacher must teach the student to learn, in modern terms, “sell” study, that is, to interest, inspire study, which is exactly what online education with its tools and visibility can do.

If we talk about universities, then here I allow a number of specialties (programming, economics, sociology, and others), which can be obtained in online format and in a shorter period (a year or two, instead of 3-5 years traditionally). The world and  professions are changing too fast today. But there are fundamental sciences — for example, medicine, and  so far I can't imagine how today it is possible to train doctors only online without practical and laboratory classes  — Danilov thinks.

From school — in entrepreneurs

Natalia Maksimova, former teacher of mathematics and computer science at a private school, is sure that online education, on the contrary, is quite difficult, first of all, for the teacher himself:

 I came into school teaching after five years of freelancing as as a tutor. I worked at school the most difficult period — from mid-2019 (eve of the pandemic) to mid-2021 (completion of the second lockdown).

The specifics of the work was that I did not had a pedagogical education. However, I have very good communication skills, an engineering education from Bauman Moscow State Technical University and the desire to show children in school that computer science — this is a lot of interesting projects, and even standard excel tools can help you create applications on your phone. Since the school was private, there was an opportunity to move away from the obligatory Federal State Educational Standards, since no one passed computer science either in class 9 or in class 11, and we work in project mode. The  school also had the opportunity, and they purchased a 3D printer for an additional computer science circle, which I led with pleasure for children in grades 5-8 . However, with the advent of the pandemic, the focus of my work has shifted from teaching to technical support for the entire school to organize the educational process so that children can learn from home, teachers can conduct lessons remotely, and and so on.


This greatly undermined the desire to continue working, yes, and to interact with children. The specifics of children's motivation offline — not  the easiest task, but already online and completely difficult to keep the attention of a child.

For myself, I found out that working with non-adult audience (up to 20 years) is ready only offline, and  ;here with adults who themselves come with a request, you can in any format.

From school I went to entrepreneurship, realizing that I can make people's lives better not only at level of quality improvement school education, but in further development.

Now I am invited to lectures at universities, where I lecture soft-skills and entrepreneurship, develop my art of working with audiences, grow as a teacher. School wouldn't give me all this.

A court in Chernigov sentenced Russian tanker Mikhail Kulikov to ten years in prison, who was accused in Ukraine of shooting at a residential multi-storey building, Suspіlna reported.

The Russian was found guilty of violating the laws and customs of war (part 1 of article 1 article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). He will also have to compensate legal costs in the amount of 26 thousand hryvnia (43.2 thousand rubles).

Russian tankers Kulikov and his commander, Major Leonid Shchetkin, were taken prisoner on the outskirts of Chernigov on February 26, according to Suspilna. According to the Ukrainian investigation, Shchetkin ordered Kulikov to deploy the tower and shoot at a residential multi-storey building.

During interrogation, Kulikov confirmed that he shot at the house on the order of the commander. According to the military, Shchetkin told him that a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher had been installed in the high-rise building. After the shot, their tank was knocked out, and the military hid in the yards of the private sector and were subsequently captured, Kulikov said.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has repeatedly stressed that the military does not strike at civilian infrastructure. Major Shchetkin, who, according to Suspilne, had already been exchanged at the time the trial began, also denied in an interview with blogger Yuri Zolkin that his tanks fired at civilians or residential buildings.

The competition for the mandate of the Moscow Mundep was five people per seat

6259 people will compete for the mandates of the Mundeps in Moscow, the competition will be about five people per seat. The percentage of registered candidates decreased compared to 2017, most of the refusals were for self-nominated candidates =”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/800xH/media/img/4/70/756599752749704.webp 800w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 400px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/590xH/media/img/4/70/756599752749704.webp 590w" type="image/webp" >

6,259 candidates for deputies were registered for the municipal elections in Moscow, Dmitry Reut, deputy head of the Moscow City Electoral Committee, told RBC, summing up the registration stage. 1261 candidates from United Russia, 928— from the Communist Party, 547— from the party «New people», 503— from A Just Russia, 308— from the Liberal Democratic Party and 179— from the Yabloko party.

According to Reut, 599 people withdrew their candidacies or did not bring documents, another 465 were refused. “Reason for refusal — mainly violations in the collection of signatures»,— Reut added. Thus, “about five people” claim one mandate, which the deputy head of the Moscow City Electoral Committee described as “quite good competition.”

The percentage admitted to the elections was 85.4% of all nominated (7326 people), which is lower compared to the last municipal elections in 2017, when 92% of candidates (7665 out of 8330 candidates) were registered, but about the same (84%) as in 2012 (4151 out of 4959 candidates).

Municipal Campaign Coordinator “New People” In Moscow, Anna Trofimenko, in a conversation with RBC, noted that 33 people from the party were not registered: they all withdrew from the elections themselves, mainly due to family circumstances. “It is important for us that the candidates fully work the campaign, the one who felt that he cannot do this leaves,” — she explained.

The head of the city committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Nikolai Zubrilin, in a conversation with RBC, noted that some of the communist candidates also refused to participate in the elections for personal reasons. According to him, at the moment, out of 928 candidates who have submitted documents for nomination, 870 have been registered. The party received nine refusals, in particular, as he said earlier, due to shortcomings in the submitted documents.

Some of the candidates lost the right to run for office due to prosecution for displaying extremist symbols (Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). The court decision on this article that has entered into force entails a ban on participation in elections during the year— at least 24 candidates were not admitted. Among other grounds for refusals— “involvement in an extremist organization” (on this basis, they refused, in particular, to Konstantin Yankauskas and Sergey Tsukasov).

Self-nominated candidates faced registration denials more frequently than party representatives, but the creators of the two — teams to help candidates appreciate the intermediate results of the campaign.

88 participants of the project “Nomination” Deputy Zyuzino Alexander Zamyatin and former State Duma candidate from the Communist Party Mikhail Lobanov have already received candidate certificates, another 20 are now appealing against refusals to support the project, Zamyatin told RBC.

“This is significantly higher than our expectations in terms of the number of registered candidates from the platform, so we are very satisfied. We predicted only about 60 candidates, — he noted. Candidates were rejected due to invalidation of collected signatures or errors in filling out documents.

Candidates from Roman Yuneman's team also faced a problem with signatures. According to Yuneman, in the Basmanny district, handwriting experts found a drawing in the signature of a staff member, and in Domodedovo the commission rejected the signature of the candidate's grandmother. Of the 60 candidates initially nominated, 50 were registered (the team is now working with 40 due to disagreements)— such a number of candidates will allow for a good campaign, Yuneman said in a conversation with RBC.

In the fall, elections will be held in the capital in 125 out of 146 districts. A total of 1417 deputies will be elected. The most competitive areas, according to preliminary data, were Izmailovo, Sokolinaya Gora, Veshnyaki, Novogireevo and Bogorodskoye, political scientist Alexander Asafov said. For the municipal elections in Moscow, the rules for the formation of councils of municipal deputies were clarified— their number began to depend on the number of voters in the district, as a result of which the number of mandates decreased by 85 compared to 2017.

Russia temporarily closed inspections under the strategic weapons treaty

Foreign Ministry: Russia temporarily closed START site inspections due to US actions srcset=”https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/673xH/media/img/7/44/756599773827447.webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/590xH/media/img/7/44/756599773827447.webp 590w" type="image/webp" >

View of the building of the Russian Foreign Ministry

Russia has temporarily withdrawn from inspection activities under the Strategic Offensive Arms Treaty (START) its facilities subject to inspections. This is stated in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, published on the agency's website.

“This exemption also applies to facilities where screenings stipulated by the contract can be held,”— reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Foreign Ministry stressed that this is a forced measure, since the United States is striving to “immediately achieve a restart of inspection activities on conditions that do not take into account existing realities, create unilateral advantages for the United States and in fact deprive the Russian Federation of the right to carry out inspections on American territory.”


As an example, the statement cites the air traffic situation. Between Russia and the United States, it has been stopped, but the airspace of states that are allies and partners of the United States is closed to Russian aircraft delivering Russian inspection teams.

“At the same time, there are no similar obstacles to the arrival of American inspectors in Russia,” — emphasized in the Foreign Ministry. Another hurdle— tightening of the visa regime in transit countries along the possible routes of inspectors. “American inspectors and aircrew members do not experience such difficulties,” — emphasized on Smolenskaya Square.

The Russian Foreign Ministry suggested discussing the resumption of inspections “from the most realistic positions.” Another argument— an increase in the incidence of COVID in the United States, which could jeopardize the health of Russian inspectors.

“We believe that in the current circumstances the parties should abandon deliberately counterproductive attempts to artificially force the resumption of START inspection activities and focus on a thorough study of all existing problems in this area,”— says the statement.

At the same time, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs assured that the measures taken are temporary, Russia is committed to complying with all the provisions of the agreement and is ready to resume inspections after “resolving existing problematic issues.”

Russia and the United States signed the START-3 treaty in 2010, the document was signed by Presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev. The term of the treaty was ten years and provided for the reduction by the parties of deployed nuclear warheads to 1,500 units, and intercontinental ballistic missiles, ballistic missiles of submarines and strategic missile-carrying bombers— up to 700. The agreement expired on February 5, 2021.

But Donald Trump, who became US President in 2017, considered the agreement unprofitable for Washington and opposed its extension. In his opinion, China should have been included in the limitation of strategic offensive weapons. However, after Joe Biden came to power in the United States, the treaty was extended until February 5, 2026.

August 1, 2022, Biden said that the United States was ready to discuss with Russia an arms control system that would replace the expiring one in 2026 START-3. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded by saying that Moscow had repeatedly advocated negotiations with the United States on the extension of START.

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev responded to Biden's proposal with the words “Do we need it?”.

Grain from the ports of Ukraine was no longer exported after the start of the Russian military operation on February 24. Kyiv and Western countries blamed Moscow for this and warned of a food crisis. Russia, in turn, argued that the export of food was impossible due to the mining of ports by Ukrainian troops.

According to Oleg Ustenko, economic adviser to the President of Ukraine, the country could export 60 million tons of grain in eight to nine months with ports work without failure. If, due to hostilities, they cannot function properly, Kyiv will need up to 24 months for transportation.

The Pentagon said that the position of the United States on China and Taiwan has not changed

< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/1200xH/media/img/0/49/756599891496490.webp 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi) " >

The United States adheres to the policy of one China and does not recognize the independence of Taiwan. Colin Kahl, Deputy Secretary of Defense for Political Affairs of the United States, spoke about this at a briefing. The broadcast was on the Pentagon's Twitter (the social network was blocked in Russia at the request of the prosecutor's office).

“The United States adheres to the policy of one China, and our policy has not changed” it is support for the status quo,— Cal reported.

China wants to change the current state of affairs, according to a Pentagon representative, Kahl answered a journalist's question about Chinese army exercises in the Taiwan Strait.

China announced military exercises in response to the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who visited Taiwan's capital Taipei on August 2. The Chinese authorities sharply criticized Pelosi's visit, saying that she challenged the world, deliberately committed a provocation and violated the “one China” principle. Beijing has suspended US cooperation in a number of areas and decided to impose sanctions against Pelosi.

Washington insists that Pelosi's arrival does not contradict the “one China” principle; and does not mean a change in US policy towards China. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken warned that Beijing's suspension of US-China dialogue on some issues, including climate change, would have long-term consequences. He called the measures that China is taking as part of military exercises disproportionate to Pelosi's peaceful visit to Taiwan.

According to the Taiwan Ministry of Defense, 66 aircraft and 14 warships are taking part in the Chinese exercises. Another 22 Chinese Air Force aircraft, according to the military department, entered the Taiwan air defense zone during August 7.

Russian Foreign Ministry urges US to remove nuclear weapons from third countries

The United States must remove nuclear weapons from third countries. This was stated by Igor Vishnevetsky, Deputy Director of the Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry, at a review conference on the NPT at the UN. Vishnevetsky said.

According to the diplomat, American nuclear weapons are located on the territory of non-nuclear countries that are practicing their use. He called this a factor that increases the risk of nuclear conflict and slows down disarmament.

In March, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov demanded that American nuclear weapons be withdrawn from Europe. According to him, the presence of American nuclear warheads in European countries is contrary to the provisions of the NPT.

In addition, the head of Russian diplomacy then accused the NATO countries of working out a possible nuclear strike on Russian territory. “It's high time to bring American nuclear weapons home, and the associated infrastructure in Europe to be completely eliminated,” — he concluded.

Zelensky urged Western countries to close entry for all Russians

Western countries should force all Russians to return to Russia and “live in their own world until they change their philosophy,” the President of Ukraine believes. According to Zelensky, “this is the only way to influence Putin”< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/1200xH/media/img/7/76/756600025727767.webp 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi) " >

< /p>

Western countries should ban all Russians from entering their territory. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an interview with The Washington Post.

According to him, all previously imposed sanctions against Russia are “weak”; compared to closing the borders for Russian citizens for one year and a complete embargo on the purchase of Russian energy.

“The most important sanctions are to close the borders— because the Russians are taking away foreign land,»,— Zelensky said in a conversation with the publication, adding that Russians should “live in their own world until they change their philosophy.”

The Ukrainian leader believes that it is possible to “call the entire population to account” Russia, isolating him. “You are telling the whole world that it must live by your rules. Then go and live there. This is the only way to influence [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” — he concluded.

On February 26, the European Union suspended the simplified visa regime with Russia, which meant a simplified procedure for processing documents for officials and entrepreneurs.

A number of European countries advocated a complete ban on visas for Russians. This initiative was put forward by Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu and Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics and Finnish parliamentary parties.

“This mouse hole needs to be plugged up”, Reinsalu said. He lamented that Russian citizens still enter the country on visas of other states, although Estonia has stopped issuing them.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, commenting on the initiative of Finnish parties to ban the issuance of visas to Russians, warned that Russia could take retaliatory action.

“Restricting the travel of Russian citizens for political reasons will be another step towards aggravating the confrontation in bilateral relations,” — she pointed out.

The European Commission ruled out a complete cessation of issuing visas to Russians, as this is contrary to EU standards. “There are always groups of people who need to be given visas. These are humanitarian cases, family members [of EU citizens], journalists and dissidents,— reminded in the European Commission.

The embassies and visa centers of Belgium, Malta, the Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Estonia have already limited the issuance of short-term Schengen visas for Russians.

The Association of Tour Operators of Russia reported on August 5 on the suspension by Bulgaria of accepting Russian documents for tourist visas and visas for property owners at the Bulgarian consulate. Later, the Bulgarian embassy in Moscow assured that they continue to issue tourist visas to Russians, however, the terms for the provision of services have increased for technical reasons.

FBI raids Donald Trump’s Florida residence

The FBI is raiding Donald Trump's home in Florida. The NY Times claims that the reason for the search is secret documents that Trump took with him from the White House at the end of his presidential term /35/756600051666358.webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/1200xH/media/img/8/35/756600051666358.webp 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi) " >

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is conducting a search of the home of former US President Donald Trump. This is stated in a statement by Trump, published on the page of his associates on Twitter (the social network was blocked at the request of the prosecutor's office).

“True dark times have come for our nation, as my beautiful house in the residence Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege by the FBI, who are searching it, & mdash; Trump said.

The New York Times, citing sources familiar with the situation, writes that the FBI is searching Trump's house because of the documents that the former president took with him after he left the White House. According to the newspaper, the documents may contain classified information.

According to the publication, the US National Archives requested the return of 15 boxes of documents “for many months” and contacted the FBI because of the likely threat of destruction of these documents. “Mr. Trump is notorious for destroying official papers intended to be kept in government archives during his presidency,” newspaper writes. In February, an article about this appeared in The Washington Post.

According to Trump, no one notified him of the search. Trump called the search itself “optional.” Trump accused the FBI of violating procedures, and the “radical left Democrats” (Democratic Party of the USA) in using the law enforcement system as a weapon. According to Trump, the Democrats “fucking don't want him running in the 2024 presidential election.”

The previous US presidential election took place in November 2020. According to the results of the electoral vote, Trump scored 232, his opponent Joe Biden— 306 votes. Trump then declared “deceiving the American public” and “shame” for the country. According to the ex-president, “millions and millions of people” voted for him, but “a pathetic group of people is trying to disenfranchise them.” Biden insisted that the vote was fair.

On January 6, 2021, Trump supporters gathered for a rally in Washington, while the House of Representatives was about to approve the election results. Protesters seized the Capitol, and tear gas and stun grenades were used against them. Five people were killed in the clashes. Biden accused Trump of inciting violence.

In early June, open hearings began in the United States in the case of the storming of the Capitol. The Special Committee of the Congress to investigate these events was formed for the most part from Democrats— members of the House of Representatives and began its work in July last year. His intention was to prove that Trump's actions had a direct impact on the events of January 6th. Evidence was presented at the hearing that Trump first tried to falsify the results of the elections, and then achieve the cancellation of the recognition of their results.

The former president himself believes that a special committee of Congress intends to prevent his participation in the next presidential election. The committee's final report is to be published in September of this year, less than a month before the midterm congressional elections.

Reuters: Russian airlines are dismantling planes for spare parts due to sanctions

The agency reports that the Russian government had previously recommended such measures.

Russian airlines, which fell under the sanctions of the West, began to dismantle the aircraft.

Thus, the owners of the ships intend to ensure the availability of spare parts.

In particular, they are now standing on the ground and dismantling several aircraft, including the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and Airbus A350, owned by Aeroflot.

This is reported by Reuters, citing four sources in the aviation industry.

At the same time, the agency indicates that the Airbus A350 – the liner, which had practically no problems with serviceability, the vessel is “almost new,” the source notes.

A similar fate befell two more “Aeroflot” – Boeing 737 and Airbus A320, from which special equipment was removed.

The reason is that these parts are needed for the remaining ships.

The authors of the materials believe that by decision of the Government of the Russian Federation, which recommended that airlines, against the backdrop of sanctions, dismantle some of the aircraft they used.

Thus, there are guarantees that in the event of a breakdown, foreign ships will receive repairs and will be able to stay in the sky until at least 2025.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Boeing suspended the maintenance of Russian airlines and the supply of spare parts.
