Rosseti: the accident on the Maryino line did not affect the energy supply in Moscow

disrupted the power supply to consumers, RIA Novosti was told at the Rosseti Moscow Region company.

As the company explained, on the morning of August 11, there was a short circuit on a 10 kV cable line extending from the 110 kV Maryino substation, which led to pops followed by smoke.

“The consequences of a local technological disruption were promptly eliminated. In the shortest possible time, consumers were transferred to a backup power supply scheme. There are no de-energized consumers,” the company said.

Rosseti Moscow Region (formerly MOESK) is one of the of the largest distribution grid companies in Russia, operates in Moscow and the Moscow region. The controlling shareholder is Rosseti with a 50.9% stake in the authorized capital. Another 17.62% belongs to the management company “Leader”, 9.77% – to Gazprombank, 6.19% – to the management company “Agana”, 5.05% – to the company “OEK-Finance”.

Authorities introduced new ways to monitor DEG in Moscow

Among the new tools is a special site for monitoring elections, the ability to create a digital package and put the signature “Vasya was here” on the “bricks of the blockchain,” one of the developers Artem Kostyrko said

Observers of remote electronic voting in Moscow will have three new control mechanisms, Artem Kostyrko, one of the developers of the Moscow Remote Electronic Voting System (DEV), said at the public election observation headquarters.

The first includes the ability to write your own browser— a special site for monitoring the voting process, where, in particular, in real time you can see the number of ballots received and issued.

“We will lay out a certain technological toolkit, it is called an interface to the blockchain, and we will offer all political parties and everyone who wants to write their own observer … to increase trust and remove questions, we suggest that developers who wish to write the toolkit themselves,”— said Kostyrko.

In the autumn elections to the State Duma, observers noted errors in the work of the observer: according to the data published there, for some period the number of ballots accepted was several times higher than the number of those issued, which in Department of Information Technology (DIT) explained DDoS attacks.

As Artem Kostyrko said at a meeting of the public headquarters, video panels for observation (an observer will be broadcast there) will be placed in all 125 TECs where elections are held.

The second mechanism— the opportunity to make a “digital envelope”, which will make sure that transactions are unchanged, Artem Kostyrko noted. Such tools already exist in the federal system of online voting, but they were not in Moscow.

Another announced innovation— the ability to record a verification transaction. Unlike the previous two mechanisms, this feature will only be used by professional observers, the exact rules to be settled by the IPCC later, Kostyrko said. In the verification transaction, observers will be able to leave their “footprint”, “signature”, in order to further verify that the blockchain has not changed. In his speech, Kostyrko compared this with the inscriptions on the wall “Here was Vasya, here was Petya”, only on the “bricks” blockchain, and with locks that the newlyweds hang on the bridge.

“You can put your lock in this chain and thus make sure that this transaction does not disappear. Blockchain is designed in such a way that it is a single, inextricable chain— accordingly, on the one hand, observers who monitor that the chain does not change in its volume, on the other & mdash; observers who make sure that specific links in the chain do not disappear, — concluded Kostyrko.

This is just an announcement, so it is still difficult to assess the effectiveness of monitoring mechanisms, electoral expert Grigory Melkonyants noted in a conversation with RBC. “We hope for testing, which will take place at the end of August, then we can already draw a conclusion based on the results. But in general, this is a step towards transparency, the direction is right. It is important that all comers have access to these tools, — said Melkonyants.

Earlier, in the municipal elections in Moscow, they also announced the use of an electronic voter list. It is introduced to reduce errors due to the human factor, the IPCC said. In addition, Muscovites will be able to vote for the first time using scanners and styluses in autumn: the commission will scan the voter's passport, and the voter — subscribe on a special tablet.

Sobyanin spoke about the improvement of the Left Bank district of Moscow

The Levoberezhny district of the Russian capital has changed significantly in recent years: the embankments, Druzhba parks and the Northern River Station have been reconstructed. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote about this on his page on the social network.

According to him, the Levoberezhny district has become more accessible thanks to the new Belomorskaya metro station. After the reconstruction, the historical cinema «Neva» became a local community center.

The Mayor noted that in 2021 one of the largest schools in the capital for 1900 students was built in the district. In 2022, it is planned to commission a kindergarten and a school for first grade students.

Playrooms, bedrooms, locker rooms, and a buffet will be created for preschoolers. Thanks to the transforming walls, it will be possible to expand the area for games.

Abnormal heat in Moscow in different years

In Moscow, August 6 this year was the second hottest day of this summer, the temperature rose to plus 31.7 degrees in the center. It was hotter only on July 11th. Then the temperature rose to 32.8 degrees. The previous maximum belongs to 2010, when the temperature was 37.3 degrees.

How did the residents of the capital cope with the heat in different years — see in the photo feed.

Shadow from the 90s. Is the leader of the “Orekhovskaya” Sylvester still alive?

On the darkest pages of the “dashing 90s” Russians were reminded by the media mention of the name Sergey Timofeev, better known as Sylvester. The daughter of the leader of one of the bloodiest criminal groups claims that her father is alive.

Daughter seeks exhumation

According to Telegram-channel Mash, Timofeev's own daughter Karina Kharlamova< /strong>appealed to law enforcement agencies with a request to exhume the remains buried at the Khovansky cemetery of the capital in 1994. Kharlamova is convinced that another person was buried then, and her father still lives in Kazakhstan, in the city of Karaganda.

I must say that the version that Timofeev really could have avoided death has not appeared over the years once. But, firstly, no conclusive evidence was presented. And secondly, none of the conspiracy theorists had previously dared even stutter about the exhumation procedure.

Readers who still do not understand who they are talking about can be congratulated — you are lucky in life. In the early 1990s, any interaction with Sylvester or his henchmen could be fatal. The criminals acted with extreme cruelty, stopping at nothing to achieve their goals.

Dreams of a tractor driver

Timofeev's childhood did not portend future passions — a native of a village in the Novgorod region, he graduated from school, mastered the profession of a tractor driver, and served in the army. Like many others in the 1970s, after serving in the army, Timofeev decided to settle in Moscow. He got a job in the mechanization department, settling in the residential area of ​​Orekhovo-Borisovo.

Sergey was a physically strong guy who was fond of various sports in his school years. In the army, he began to closely engage in hand-to-hand combat and continued this hobby in the “civilian”, combining his usual work with the position of a sports instructor.

Timofeev was an ambitious man, striving for prosperity. During the Soviet period, he did not succeed in realizing these aspirations legally, so it is not surprising that he began to approach criminal elements.

Thanks to Comrade Gorbachev!

The cooperative movement, which flourished under < strong>Gorbachev, could not fail to attract the attention of criminal elements. Timofeev with his athletes at first provided power cover for petty street swindlers — “thimblers”. But a very quickly emerging criminal group switched to racketeering, “protection” prostitution, etc. According to the place of basing and historical formation of the “brigade”; began to be called «Orekhovskaya».

Sylvester resolutely moved forward. He had an extremely negative attitude towards ethnic criminal groups on the territory of Moscow and did not try to settle the conflict with them amicably. For example, he launched a real war with the Caucasians for control of the famous car market in the South Port.

Nevertheless, the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs still retained its strength. In 1989, Timofeev was sent to prison for extortion. True, he received a very short term — 3 years, and already in 1991 “returned to service”.

From banks to Alla Pugacheva

The collapse of the USSR, chaos in the economy and in public administration were an ideal environment for criminals . Sylvester and his henchmen took on big things — under the control of the “Orekhovskaya” there were about three dozen banks.

He “roofed” financial pyramids, took control of the metal trade, got into the oil business. “Orekhovskiye” became one of the first groups to put on stream “laundering” criminal money.

Unlike other kings of the underworld Sylvester ignored the old thieves' traditions. He preferred to rely on former athletes, retired military and even former intelligence officers.

The head of the Orekhovskaya tried to take pop stars under his wing, including Alla Pugacheva, clashed with Boris Berezovsky himself, who narrowly escaped death at the hands of Sylvester's militants.

Criminal wars

Timofeev was already preparing escape routes for himself, having married and received a passport an Israeli citizen.

That didn't stop him from continuing to act tough. In 1993,  during the struggle for control of the Arlekino club,  Sylvester organized the murder of crime boss Valery Dlugachnamed Globe. In 1994, during the conflict for control of the Tuapse oil refinery, Timofeev organized the murder of one of the most famous crime bosses in Russia of that time — Otari Kvantrishvili. On April 5, 1994, he was killed in Moscow with three shots from a small-caliber rifle while leaving the Krasnopresnensky baths.

Of course, Timofeev made a lot of enemies for himself. On September 13, 1994, on 3rd Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street, a Mercedes took off, in which Sylvester was.

The explosion and subsequent fire were so strong that the body was identified only by dental fillings and documents who survived the fire. The funeral took place at the Khovansky cemetery with a massive gathering of people. The death of Sylvester was the beginning of the end of the “Orekhovskaya” groupings.

Death or staged?

Almost three decades have passed, but law enforcement agencies have not been able to reliably establish who dealt with Timofeev. He had a lot of enemies, but neither the customer nor the performers came into the view of the security forces. And this is one of the main reasons that gave rise to rumors that everything that happened was just staged.

Sylvester has not been seen anywhere over the years — in Vienna and Tambov, in Tel Aviv and Odessa & hellip; They assured that he deftly brought abroad the capital acquired by criminal activity and lives comfortably.

It cannot be said that there were no such cases. For example, Sylvester's henchman Sergei Butorindid fake his own death and went abroad. However, in 2001 he was arrested in Spain. The problem was that Butorin continued to lead the group, so to speak, remotely, and he was soon identified.

Ultimately, Butorin was handed over to Russia, and in 2011 he was sentenced to life imprisonment.

In the case of Sylvester, such objective “traces” his presence was not and is not. The first wife of Timofeev, having learned about the demand for exhumation, called it a fake, telling reporters that she had no doubt that her ex-husband died in 1994.

By the way, the creators of the Brigada series Sergei Timofeev was used as one of the prototypes of Sasha Bely. At the end of the series, the hero fakes his death in a blown up car.

A legend is a legend, albeit a criminal one. And even checking the grave is unlikely to reassure conspiracy theorists. But there is no romance in all this — only rivers of spilled blood.

“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, 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 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 — 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.

Zelensky's office: in Moscow's “ball in the field” peace talks, Ukraine is ready to return to negotiations after the withdrawal of troops and a ceasefire, an adviser to the head of Zelensky's office said.

Mikhail Podolyak

In the peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, it is up to Moscow, as Kyiv is waiting for the withdrawal of troops and a ceasefire, Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said on Twitter.

“If Moscow wants dialogue, the ball is in its field . First— ceasefire and withdrawal of troops. Then— constructive»,— he wrote.

The comment appeared in response to the statements of the ex-Chancellor of Germany, Gerhard Schroeder, whom Podolyak called “the herald of the empire and the voice at the royal court.” The German politician came to Moscow on vacation at the end of July and later said that he had met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

After that, the former chancellor said that Russia's decision to launch a special operation was “a mistake of the Russian government”, for mutual concessions are needed to resolve the crisis, and the Kremlin would like to do this through negotiations.

Schroeder believes that the parties could build on the success achieved with the July grain deal. The politician admitted that the agreements could be “gradually expanded to a ceasefire.”

“It was a big mistake to denigrate possible concessions to Ukraine as a peace dictated by Russia in advance,” — he said and noted that it would not be possible to resolve the conflict without negotiations.

After them, Russia agreed to reduce military activity in the Kiev and Chernihiv directions, while Ukraine offered its own terms for concluding peace. According to the head of the Russian delegation, Vladimir Medinsky, these included Kyiv's abandonment of the desire to return the Crimea and Donbass by military means; military neutrality of Ukraine; security guarantees for it from the international community; Moscow's non-objection to the country's accession to the EU. At the same time, the Ukrainian delegation indicated that they were ready to discuss these provisions only after the withdrawal of troops. this is the fixation in the treaty of “the neutral, non-bloc and non-nuclear status of Ukraine, the recognition of the existing territorial realities, including the current status of Crimea, as well as the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics,” the Foreign Ministry pointed out.

They agreed on the conditions for the export of grain from Ukrainian ports and the removal of restrictions on the export of Russian agricultural products.

The United States called the “goodwill of Moscow” necessary for the negotiations on START-3

Lavrov said earlier that the United States did not officially offer Moscow to resume dialogue on START-3. The State Department noted that the dialogue requires “the goodwill of Moscow” image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset=" 800w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 400px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >< source srcset=" 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi) " >

The United States is ready to return to dialogue on the extension or conclusion of a new document to replace the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (START-3), which expires in 2026, said the Deputy U.S. Secretary of State for Arms Control Bonnie Jenkins.

According to her, Washington is ready to return to negotiations as soon as Moscow “shows goodwill” in the context of the situation around Ukraine. “That's the setting we're looking at right now,” — she said.

At the same time, Jenkins added that Washington does not set a specific date for when this will happen.

START-3 (START-3)— this is an agreement on measures to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms, which Washington and Moscow signed in 2010 for a period of ten years. It provided for the reduction by the parties of deployed nuclear warheads to 1,500 units, and intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and strategic missile-carrying bombers— to 700. On February 5, 2021, its validity period was to come to an end, however, the parties agreed to extend it for another five years— until February 5, 2026.

On August 1, US President Joe Biden said that the US administration is ready to discuss with Russia an arms control system that will replace START-3. “Russia should show that it is ready to resume work on nuclear arms control with the United States,” — stressed the head of state.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, in response, recalled that Moscow has repeatedly advocated negotiations with the United States on the extension or conclusion of a new treaty to replace START-3, but the United States “de facto” previously showed no interest in such contacts.

Invasion of giant slugs in Moscow

Giant Spanish slugs have appeared in Moscow. According to the Mospriroda, they were supposedly brought in with fruits and vegetables or specially to keep at home, and then thrown away.

Spanish slugs — a species of terrestrial gastropod mollusks from the pulmonary order. Snails are devoid of a shell, they grow up to 18 centimeters long. Until the first half of the 20th century, slugs were distributed only within the Iberian Peninsula, but over the years they have mastered Central and Northern Europe.

Presidential press secretary Peskov: Putin and Schroeder discussed the energy crisis in Europe Gerhard Schroeder did not express a desire to become a mediator in the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, Peskov said. The ex-Chancellor of Germany earlier said that the conflict in Ukraine can only be resolved through negotiations, and called for the launch of Nord Stream 2 4/05/756595256011054.webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset=" 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi) " >

Gerhard Schroeder

Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder expressed concern to Russian President Vladimir Putin about the emerging energy crisis in Europe. This was announced to journalists by the presidential representative Dmitry Peskov, TASS reports.

“The former chancellor, like all thinking and understanding people and specialists in Europe, <…> is also concerned about the very bleak prospects in this area. Of course, he asked Putin to explain the situation and explain the vision of the Russian side, — Peskov said.

According to him, the ex-chancellor asked Putin whether it was possible “in a crisis situation, hypothetically speaking,” to use the gas pipeline, emphasizing that the initiator of this topic was not the president. Putin, in response, assured Schroeder that the technical capabilities of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline allow “instantly” use it to supply gas to Europe.

“Even if we imagine that we have turned on Nord Stream 2 now, we will be able to pump 27.5 billion cubic meters, no more, by the end of the year, in a year. Half went to our internal consumption, — said the presidential press secretary.

Peskov stressed that the Kremlin has a record of the conversation between Putin and Schroeder, if “someone decides to play” with its content.

Schroeder arrived in Moscow at the end of July for a few days, the politician said in an interview with an n-tv correspondent. The journalist met the politician near the headquarters of the Rosneft company. and drew the attention of the ex-chancellor to this, to which he replied: “Is it really so? Oh yes, that's right, you're right.

At the same time, Schroeder's wife said that he was not on vacation, but was negotiating energy issues. The ex-chancellor intends to meet with Putin to discuss the situation in Ukraine as part of a mediation effort to end hostilities, unnamed sources told Politico.

The Kremlin assured on July 27 that Schroeder did not meet with Putin, official Berlin called the trip Schroeder by his personal initiative.

Returning to Germany, the ex-chancellor gave an interview to Stern and n-tv, saying that the launch of Nord Stream 2 became the “easiest solution” the situation. He pointed out that “when things get really tight” there are both gas pipelines of the Nord Stream project. When the energy crisis in Germany deepens, the inhabitants of the republic will ask why the country refuses gas from Nord Stream 2, he continued. “When supply decreases, prices rise,” — emphasized Schroeder.

He also expressed confidence that in resolving the conflict in Ukraine “it will not work without negotiations”, an agreement on the export of grain from Ukrainian ports, concluded at the end of July, could lead to a ceasefire.

In early August, the European Commission urged to prepare for the worst situation with gas supplies. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, noted that all those responsible for the energy crisis “are in Moscow and nowhere else,” and therefore EU members must remain united. She noted that a number of European countries are more dependent on Russian gas than others, either “because of their geographical location” or “because of their sovereign energy decisions.”

The German authorities ruled out the launch of the “Northern flow-2» under the sanctions imposed against Russia. German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck called this scenario “surrender.”

Kuleba said that Kyiv does not share Turkey’s optimism on dialogue with Moscow

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kuleba: Kyiv does not share Turkey's optimism in negotiations with Moscow In Ukraine, they disagreed with this point of viewjpg 673w” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset=" 1200w" media="(min-resolution: 192dpi)" >

Dmitry Kuleba

Kyiv does not share Ankara's optimism that the grain deal could become a prerequisite for broader agreements between Ukraine and Russia, he said in an interview with Ukrinform. Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba.

On July 22, Russia and Ukraine separately signed agreements with Turkey and the UN on the export of Ukrainian grain. At the end of the same month, the representative of the Turkish president, Ibrahim Kalin, suggested that the success of this deal could contribute to the start of peace negotiations between Kyiv and Moscow. “If the agreement on the supply of grain is successfully implemented, it is possible that this will lay the foundation for a cease-fire, an exchange of prisoners and peace negotiations,” cites his words Hürriyet.

However, Ukraine, as Kuleba noted, does not yet see the possibility of such a scenario. “As for the more encouraging signals that Turkey is now sending, that the grain agreement” this is a prerequisite for a broader agreement between Ukraine and Russia, we do not share this optimism, — said the minister.

The Russian and Ukrainian delegations began negotiations a few days after the start of the special operation. The last face-to-face meeting took place in Istanbul at the end of March. As a result, Kyiv handed over proposals for a peace agreement to Moscow. However, in April, after the events in Bucha, which the Russian authorities consider a provocation, the negotiations were frozen. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the discussion was suspended at the initiative of Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that before returning to the negotiating table, Kyiv intends to return the lost territories. Moscow, in turn, insists that Kyiv must recognize the “existing territorial realities”, including the current status of Crimea, as well as the DNR and LNR.

Last week, Kuleba said that a number of Western partners began to actively offer Kyiv to start peace talks with the Russian side, but Kyiv sees no signs that Moscow wants to start a dialogue. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan also said that Russia is not interested in negotiations.

Why are the Spanish slugs that appeared in Moscow dangerous, and how to deal with them?

Spanish slugs have appeared in Moscow and the Moscow region. Residents of the capital region are posting photos of giant red clams on social networks. In the press service of “Mospriroda” talked about the harm these slugs can cause and where they came from in the Moscow region. jpg” height=”425″ width=”640″ style=”display: block;” />


What kind of Spanish slugs?

Spanish slugs (lat. Arion lusitanicus) — a species of terrestrial gastropod mollusks from the lung order. They are devoid of a shell, reach a length of up to 18 centimeters. As previously told Nikolai Sidortsov, full member of the Moscow Society of Naturalists, these mollusks are very gluttonous. They can eat on the site everything that gets in their way, and sometimes even commit an act of cannibalism and eat their own kind.

Mospriroda also warned that Spanish slugs can cause trouble for gardeners and gardeners. They eat agricultural products, especially vegetables and fruits. At the same time, the use of wild, uncultivated plants is avoided, since they contain phytoncides, bitterness and other substances with which plants protect themselves from pests. Therefore, red slugs do not pose a danger to the natural areas of the capital.

Are red slugs dangerous to humans?

In general, red slugs are not dangerous to humans. However, they can be carriers of certain types of parasites and pathogens. Therefore, Mospriroda asks those who meet slugs not to touch them with their bare hands.

Can the population of red slugs increase in Moscow?

Spanish slugs have virtually no natural enemies, which is why they are able to reach large numbers. However, Mospriroda notes that in cold weather, the population of red slugs in the capital will naturally decrease. A warmer climate is suitable for this species than in Moscow. Adults and young individuals dig into the soil for wintering, after which they fall into suspended animation. And in the natural areas of the capital, the ground usually freezes several tens of centimeters deep and there are no artificial heat sources there.

How did the red slugs get to Moscow?

The population of Spanish slugs arose by chance in the capital region. Mospriroda believes that mollusks could have been accidentally brought in with fruits and vegetables, or someone brought them specifically to keep at home, and then threw them away.

How to deal with Spanish slugs?

According to Nikolai Sidortsov, special chemicals or salt can be used to fight slugs. Also, these clams love beer, so gardeners make beer traps, and then they collect slugs and burn them. But you need to do this, observing safety precautions, wearing gloves.

Putin was “lucky” again: the aggravation in Kosovo played on Moscow

The Serbian leadership has temporarily lost the ability to migrate to the West

It is difficult, oh so difficult, to be a Western politician in August 2022! Wherever you look – everywhere “continuous Putin.” In Moscow, Putin himself. In Beijing, there is a leader who is potentially “even more dangerous than Putin”: according to estimates that are very popular among Western analysts, even if Xi Jinping does not clash with the West over Taiwan now, he is very likely to arrange something something similar in the horizon of the next few years. And now “Putin has raised his head” also in the region where, it would seem, the West has long since settled everything and defeated everyone long ago: in Serbia and Kosovo. Such a metaphor could only be born in a brain that had been exposed to a long and intense exposure to the evil summer sun? Forced to agree. These three crises have different nature and different dynamics. The big game around Ukraine is now in full swing, the big game around Taiwan is yet to come, and in Kosovo we are dealing with the remnants of the previous crisis: de facto, the Serbs have long lost this territory – and irretrievably. But there is a nuance: the escalation in Kosovo is very important in the context of relations between Moscow and Belgrade. Now the Serbian leadership has significantly fewer opportunities to fulfill their long-standing secret desire: to do away with Moscow and finally “migrate to the West.”


The first day of the last month of summer passed in Russian political circles under the sign of solemn declarations in support of Serbia. Kremlin mouthpiece Dmitry Peskov on the position of the West and the Kosovo Albanians: “We absolutely support Serbia. We are with the Kosovo Serbs, we believe that these are absolutely unreasonable demands.” First Deputy Chairman of the International Committee of the Federation Council Vladimir Dzhabarov: Russia “will help. We ourselves will not enter into a conflict, I think. But, of course, we will provide assistance to the Serbs if they apply. We have a treaty of friendship.” Having a treaty of friendship is, of course, a great thing. However, in addition to official documents, there are also practical aspects. And these practical moments consist, among other things, in the fact that at the beginning of June Russia was unable to ensure the flight of Sergey Lavrov's plane to Belgrade. Due to obstruction on the part of Europe, the official visit of the Russian Foreign Minister to the Serbian capital was cancelled. The question is: what can Russia realistically do to help the Serbs?

I continue to list the “uncomfortable moments.” Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Zorana Mihajlovic publicly expressed her joy that Lavrov was never able to reach Belgrade: “The very announcement of the visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov became a complication for Serbia and President Aleksandar Vučić. We are trying to survive energetically, financially and politically in a really difficult time, and I think the last thing we need is to have the world's problems solved through our backs.” Colleagues lady, of course, shamed. But at the moment, she, as if nothing had happened, continues to occupy her post in the government. What does this really say about the quality of the “strategic partnership” between Serbia and Russia? I'm afraid the bitter truth. There are very influential people in Belgrade who would like to get rid of this partnership, in the same way that the leaders of Montenegro, “devoted to the grave of friendship with Moscow,” got rid of it. It is not known for sure whether the Russian Emperor Alexander III said the phrase that our modern politicians like to quote with reference to him: “In the whole world we have only two faithful allies – our army and navy. All the rest will take up arms against us at the first opportunity.” But it is absolutely documented that in 1889, at a solemn banquet in St. Petersburg, in the presence of representatives of other foreign powers, the tsar made the following toast: “I drink to my only friend, the Prince of Montenegro!”

The future Prime Minister of Russia, Sergei Witte, who knew and understood Alexander III well, commented on this act of the emperor as follows: “This toast, of course, was proclaimed not so much out of love for Prince Nicholas, as in order to tell the whole world:“ I have no allies, and I don't need them.” But you can’t say such words about anyone anyway. The concepts of “Montenegro” and “friend of Russia” have long been synonymous. But how did it all end? But what. In 2014, with statements in the style of “sorry, we didn’t do it on purpose,” Montenegro joined Western sanctions against Moscow, and against the backdrop of the current crisis, it even began to freeze the property of Russian citizens. This was the price for this country's accession to NATO (took place in 2017) and its future accession to the EU (planned for 2025). And Montenegro willingly paid this price.

The Serbian political elite also wants to follow this path. Local politicians consider the fight for Kosovo lost (which is true). However, it is still impossible to speak about it aloud in Serbia. And until this situation changes, the official alliance between Moscow and Belgrade will also continue to exist. The veto power that Russia has in the UN Security Council is the only obstacle to the finalization of Kosovo's status as an independent Albanian state with full international recognition. This forces Serbian politicians to constantly stand upright. I really want to join NATO and the EU, but it's very scary to give up Kosovo. Dangerous for life: at the beginning of this century, the Western-oriented President of Serbia Zoran Djindjic agreed to transfer Slobodan Milosevic to the Hague Tribunal and soon became the victim of an assassination attempt.

Of course, depending on the strength and direction of the “political wind”, those standing in Belgrade politicians are shifting in one direction or the other. The powerful onslaught of the West on Moscow after the start of a special operation in Ukraine made the Serbian elite seriously think about the possibility of a break with Russia. In May, President Aleksandar Vucic even made a very significant statement. Like, Belgrade will not impose sanctions against Moscow “as much as it can.” But now the “political wind” is blowing in the opposite direction. And the Serbian authorities are again “Russia's best friend.” Not forever, of course, only until the next change in the political situation. But, as they say, thanks for that.


The Foreign Ministry announced the frozen US and EU dialogue with Moscow on anti-terror

Russian Foreign Ministry: The US and the EU have frozen the dialogue with Moscow on combating terrorism According to the director of the Foreign Ministry department Vladimir Tarabrin, cooperation between Russia, the EU and the US in the field of counterterrorism is actually frozen. He pointed out that today “we need such a dialogue no more than Westerners” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset=" 800w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 400px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >< source srcset=" 590w" type="image/webp" >

Director of the Department for New Challenges and Threats Russian Foreign Ministry Vladimir Tarabrin

The United States and EU countries, under far-fetched pretexts, froze the dialogue with Moscow on the fight against terrorism, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Director of the Department for New Challenges and Threats of the Russian Foreign Ministry Vladimir Tarabrin.

“Cooperation between Russia and the United States in the field of anti-terror is now virtually frozen,”— he said.

Tarabrine recalled that Washington “under false pretenses” unilaterally decided to suspend the profile meetings within the framework of the dialogue under the auspices of the foreign ministries of Russia and the United States, which were held in 2018-2019 in Vienna. “A similar situation has developed with the European Union through its fault,” — he added.

“For our part, we proceed from the fact that we need such a dialogue no more than Westerners, and if someone is not ready for it due to their own phobias and distorted ideas about its equal basis , then this is no longer our problem,»— underlined Tarabrin.

After the start of the military operation in Ukraine, Western countries have already introduced several packages of sanctions against Moscow, and the US Senate also called on the State Department to include Russia in the list of countries— sponsors of terrorism. Now the list of sponsors of terrorism in the United States includes four countries— Iran, North Korea, Cuba and Syria.

Being on the list means strict restrictions on interaction with this state, a ban on the export of defense goods, control over the export of dual-use products, financial and other restrictions— these measures are included in the list of anti-Russian sanctions. In addition, sanctions are envisaged against other states that maintain trade relations with a sponsor of terrorism.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova warned that Moscow would not leave such an “idiotic” measure unanswered. In the Kremlin “very negatively” assessed the potential consequences of such a move, noting, however, that it would be difficult to spoil relations between the United States and Russia even more.

CNN: Russia asked the United States for the exchange of life-sentenced in Germany Vadim Krasikov According to the channel, in the United States, the satisfaction of such a request was considered problematic, since Vadim Krasikov is serving a life sentence in Germany. Nevertheless, Washington clarified with Berlin whether they are considering such a possibility

The Russian side asked to include in the prisoner exchange with the United States former FSB officer Vadim Krasikov, who was sentenced in Berlin to life imprisonment for the murder of Georgian citizen Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, CNN reports citing sources.

According to them, the request was transmitted through unofficial channels of the FSB. Sources noted that for this reason and because Krasikov is serving a sentence in Germany, the United States considers it difficult to fulfill the request.

An interlocutor of the TV channel in the German government said that American officials nevertheless sent a request to Berlin to find out if Germany was ready to consider such a possibility. A United States administration official described the request as a “status check”; Krasikov. A source in Berlin said that the German authorities did not seriously consider the exchange of the Russian, and this discussion did not reach high-ranking officials.

According to several sources CNN, even if the extradition of Krasikov fails, Russia will most likely ask for two prisoners in exchange for the Americans Paul Whelan and Brittney Griner.

Khangoshvili was killed in Berlin in the summer of 2019. According to investigators, Krasikov rode up to him on a bicycle and shot him three times with a pistol. A Georgian citizen died on the spot, and a Russian was detained.

Krasikov was sentenced in Germany in December last year. The court agreed with the prosecutor's office, according to which it was not just about the murder of a Georgian citizen, but about the fulfillment of the “state order to kill on German soil.” Moscow has repeatedly denied involvement in Khangoshvili's murder. President Vladimir Putin called him a “separatist” who took part in the hostilities and one of the organizers of the terrorist attack in the Moscow metro.

The number of candidates for the Moscow mundeps has decreased compared to 2017

In Moscow, the nomination of candidates for municipal elections has ended, compared to 2017, there are fewer people who want to run. Political forces complain about the lack of candidates, their removal from the elections and double namesakes

Fewer candidates

The total number of nominated candidates for municipal elections in Moscow amounted to 7326 people, RBC told Deputy head of the Moscow City Electoral Committee Dmitry Reut. The commission finished accepting documents for nomination on July 26 at 18:00.

Elections will be held in the capital in 125 out of 146 districts in autumn. A total of 1,417 deputies will be elected. 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.

None of the parties, except for United Russia, put forward a number of candidates equal to the number of mandates. The branch of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation nominated 984 people, «Fair Russia— For the truth»— 626, “New People”— 580, LDPR— 381, and “Apple” (which, according to the results of the elections in 2017, won 11.7% of the mandates, becoming the second political force)— 224 candidates.

The number of candidates compared to the last municipal elections in 2017 has decreased. At that time, 8330 applicants applied for participation in the elections in Moscow, which amounted to a record & mdash; this was 1.7 times higher than the number of those nominated than in 2012, and was twice as many as in 2008.

As Nikolai Zubrilin, head of the Moscow city committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, told RBC, there were more people who wanted to be nominated, but there are the conditions “which must be observed in the preparation of candidates,” & mdash; they must be supporters of the Communist Party and share its program. The average age of candidates from the Communist Party — 35 & ndash; 45 years old, most have higher education and experience in social and political activities— many of the current municipal councils of Moscow.

Priority was given to experienced candidates in the Liberal Democratic Party, the party experience of many running for about five years, said Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Boris Chernyshov. According to him, “solid, serious people with a good background” will come from the party, the party had no shortage of people who wanted to be promoted.

According to the coordinator of the municipal campaign in Moscow, Anna Trofimenko, the New People did not face a shortage of candidates either. “We are not faced with the problem of recruiting candidates, but of selecting those whom we can nominate,” — she told RBC, adding that the party had abandoned the idea of ​​an “electoral Uber”. The average age of the candidate— 35 years old, by occupation in first place— entrepreneur, on the second— student, noted Trofimenko.

Co-founder of the Candidate Assistance Project “Nomination” Alexander Zamyatin told RBC that he considers the main difficulty of this campaign a small number of people who decided to run for municipal elections. According to him, initially there are no more than 300 candidates, of which “150 have sufficient motivation.” He sees the main reason for the lack of interest in the events in Ukraine. “It demotivated a lot of people. Someone is now afraid to engage in politics in principle, someone has left, someone does not see the point in local politics, — said Zamyatin.

Deputy of the Moscow City Duma from Yabloko Maxim Kruglov in a conversation with RBC noted that “despite the risks, including those of a criminal nature, associated with campaigning for peace,” the party managed to nominate almost 230 people. “It is completely incomprehensible how many people will eventually reach the elections,” — said Kruglov.

Detentions and charges of extremism

Since the beginning of the municipal campaign in Moscow in mid-June, police have detained at least 24 active deputies and district activists who have declared their intention to participate in the September elections. They were brought to administrative responsibility for publicly displaying prohibited symbols (Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). A court decision on this article that has entered into force entails a ban on participation in elections for a year. It was mainly about old posts on social networks mentioning “Smart Voting”— Alexei Navalny's strategy for voting for alternative candidates with the greatest chance of winning. In September 2021, Roskomnadzor blocked the Smart Voting website. for connection with the Anti-Corruption Foundation (recognized as a foreign agent, an extremist organization, banned in Russia and liquidated).

On the first day of the campaign, June 14, the protocols were drawn up for the deputies of the Cheryomushki district, Yulia Shcherbakova and Elena Selkova, for the next & mdash; on the deputy of the Akademichesky district Levon Smirnov. For ten days under Art. On 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, Otradnoye district deputy Ruslan Borovskoy, activist Yevgeny Lebedev, and candidate Maya Baidakova were arrested.

Municipal deputy of Akademichesky district Nodari Khananashvili received a fine of 1 thousand rubles, 2 thousand rubles. the former candidate for the State Duma, Marina Litvinovich, and the candidate for Northern Medvedkovo, Sergei Romanov, must pay 1.5 thousand rubles & mdash; Deputy of the Pechatniki District Vitaly Tretyukhin.

For the “Smart Voting” sticker by car, the head of the Yakimanka district, the deputy chairman of the Moscow Yabloko, was arrested for 15 days Andrey Morev. Morev claimed that the sticker was pasted by unknown people. On June 21, the police detained Sergei Ross, a candidate for municipal deputies.

Administrative cases were filed against candidates for deputies for discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). Former candidate for the State Duma and co-founder of the platform for helping candidates for the Mundeps, Mikhail Lobanov, served 15 days of arrest due to two posts on social networks about a special operation in Ukraine, for 50 thousand rubles. Sergey Tsukasov, a deputy of the Ostankino district, Pavel Yarilin, the Mundep of the Airport district, was fined; for 40 thousand rubles. under Art. 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses.

The TEC of the Zyuzino district refused to register candidate Konstantin Yankauskas, citing his involvement in an extremist organization. On July 25, the first court session was held to cancel the registration of Sergei Tsukasov with a similar motivation. The law prohibiting those involved in extremism from being elected has been in force since the summer of 2021.

At the last elections, on the same basis, in particular, the candidates from Yabloko were removed; Lev Shlosberg to the State Duma and Nikolai Kuzmin to the Pskov Legislative Assembly. The politicians appealed the removal to the Constitutional Court, emphasizing that there was no separate court decision on their involvement in extremist activities, but the Constitutional Court rejected the complaint.

Some self-nominated candidates were denied registration due to invalidation of the collected signatures or errors in filling out documents. Denis Prokuronov was denied registration due to false information: he indicated that he was a candidate affiliated with a person— a foreign agent, as he worked for an NGO-foreign agent, but the Ministry of Justice did not confirm this.

Candidates from the Duma parties have not yet experienced massive problems with registration. According to Boris Chernyshov, almost 70% of the candidates from the LDPR are currently registered, almost all candidates from the New People have been registered, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation received 14 refusals, Nikolai Zubrilin told RBC.

At the moment, from the project «Nomination» 41 candidates out of 99 who submitted their signatures were registered from Roman Yuneman's project “Society. Future»— 45 people, nine more are waiting for registration, four were not admitted.

Some candidates used the tactic of nomination in several districts at once. So, Samson Sholademi was registered as a candidate in Pechatniki, although he had previously been denied registration in the Perovo district.

Twin candidates

Several parties announced at once that they were faced with namesake candidates. “Apple” reported that at least 11 candidates for the mundeps were put forward by people with consonant surnames. Almost all namesakes of Yabloko candidates go as self-nominated, noted in the party. In the coalition “Nomination” announced 11 such candidates, the candidate for mundeps from the association of Roman Yuneman «Society. Future» Nikolai Kolosov said that two more people with the same surname had come forward in the Chertanovo area.

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation also spoke about the problem with the nomination of namesakes. “Spoilers began to appear more and more in the form of namesakes or with similar surnames. We believe that this is a violation of the right of voters to freely express their will, which is prescribed in the electoral legislation,»,— said Nikolay Zubrilin. Previously, he estimated the number of “understudy candidates” 21 people.

«New people» reported four namesake candidates. “We are not taking any special actions in this regard, we are simply intensifying the work— we go from door to door, campaigning, meeting people, — Anna Trofimenko noted in a conversation with RBC.

Earlier, the poll “Moscow. An electoral survey conducted by Russian Field showed that 84% of Muscovites do not know about the municipal elections in September. At the same time, the majority of Muscovites (60%) plan to take part in the elections.

How to create a favorable psychological climate in maternity hospitals?

“Arguments and Facts” Weekly No. 30. Not the only one in its Mavrodi 27/07/2022

The forum “Strong Ideas for the New Times” has ended in Moscow. It discussed the proposals of the inhabitants of our country for its development. Their organizers received more than 19.5 thousand

– As told «AiF» in the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI), which was one of the organizers of the forum, 5 thousand proposals related to changes in the social sphere, including the creation of a favorable psychological climate in maternity hospitals and the prevention of cancer.

“A lot practices and proposals from our citizens were in the field of preserving the reproductive health of women, – notedASI CEO Svetlana Chupsheva.– And also an important, delicate topic was raised by our initiators – childbirth support, assistance, postpartum care of a woman.

For example, the project “Other Obstetrics” was presented at the forum; (“YES”). It was developed by a doctor from St. Petersburg, Irina Iva.Explaining the need to create a favorable climate in maternity hospitals, she cited the results of an anonymous survey of 8,000 women who gave birth in state clinics. Of these, 80% said they were dissatisfied with their stay in the maternity hospital because of emotional humiliation. According to her, the negative emotions received by a woman in the maternity hospital have a negative impact after, when she decides whether to give birth or not to give birth to a second and third child.

But how to change the atmosphere? The author of the project proposed to train the deputy chief physicians of maternity hospitals on the principles of delivering without pressure on women in labor, and then to introduce testing of obstetrician-gynecologists for compliance with the title “YES”. Those who do not pass it the first time will be allowed to take training and receive the title later.

The second idea that received support is also related to caring for women. The project “Breast cancer screening for young women from high-risk groups” was presented at the forum. Its authorOksana Moldovanova– founder of the foundation for helping the sick.

Oksana's idea is to improve the screening scheme for close relatives of patients with hereditary breast cancer syndrome, as they are at risk of developing the disease.

Now Russian women under 40 are not included in the program of medical examinations and professional examinations. Moldovanova also suggested introducing digital services and using artificial intelligence to identify genetic predispositions to breast cancer. Such an examination, in her opinion, is necessary and useful for at least three reasons. First, it will allow women to live without fear of a fatal disease. Secondly, the state will preserve an active human resource. Thirdly, spending on untimely treatment will decrease.

A farmer from the Moscow region began to make honey from hogweed

Vladimir Golichkov, a farmer from Yegoryevsk near Moscow, has launched the production of borscht honey. This was reported in the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow Region.

According to Golichkov, bees collect up to 250-300 kg of nectar from 1 ha of hogweed. The farmer noted that this plant has a balanced composition, so pollinating insects prefer hogweed to other honey plants.

Head of the Ministry Vladislav Murashov noted that this type of honey, like any other, needs veterinary and sanitary examination. He recalled that when buying honey in markets near Moscow and shopping malls, buyers can ask the seller for the conclusion of this examination.

The department noted that laboratory tests showed that hogweed honey is completely safe. However, the farmer sells it as “forbs”; because of the reputation of the plant.

Golichkov said that hogweed honey has a pleasant tart taste. This product already has its connoisseurs who come just for it. 

«It is in the top three, along with buckwheat and linden, and accounts for about a quarter of the total sales at the Golichkov apiary,” the Ministry of Agriculture and Food near Moscow said.

Bloomberg learned about Moscow’s plans to “continue pressure” on Europe for gas

Russia is using supply disruptions to encourage European countries to “rethink painful sanctions,” Bloomberg sources say. The Kremlin has repeatedly stressed that they do not use gas as a political tool alt=”Bloomberg learned of Moscow's plans to 'continue pressure' on Europe on gas” />

Russia is likely to keep gas supplies to the European Union at a minimum, increasing pressure on it due to sanctions, sources told Bloomberg.

As the agency writes, officially the Russian authorities called the reasons for the reduction in gas pumping to Europe that “Gazprom”; did not receive a turbine from repair in Canada, as well as the documents necessary for the import of the unit. However, in reality, Moscow is using supply disruptions to encourage European countries to “revise painful sanctions” and a position to support Ukraine, Bloomberg interlocutors say.

They expect the Kremlin and Gazprom to “will continue to find reasons” to reduce supplies, preventing European consumers from increasing the volume of purchased gas they need for the winter.

At the same time, one of the agency's sources noted that there really are technical problems that Moscow announced. However, Gazprom could still supply more gas via Nord Stream 1, postponing routine turbine maintenance, he said. But this has already created additional risks for the operation of the pipeline, and given the tough position of Europe regarding the events in Ukraine, Russia sees no reason to take such a step, the source of the agency explained.

RBC turned to Gazprom for comment.

“Gazprom” reduced supplies via Nord Stream 1 in mid-June, explaining the decision by the fact that he did not receive a Siemens turbine from Canada. The country imposed sanctions against Russia, but later, after a request from Berlin, agreed to transfer the unit to Moscow. However, then, as Gazprom reported, there were problems with the documents on the turbines. According to the company, the papers received from Canada do not remove sanctions risks and only “raise additional questions.”

In addition, on the eve of July 25, Gazprom stopped another Siemens gas turbine engine, due to which the daily volume of gas pumping from July 27 will be 33 million cubic meters. m (20% of the gas pipeline's design capacity).

In the European Union, Germany and Siemens believe that Russia has reduced supplies not for technical, but for political reasons. The Kremlin denied these accusations more than once. According to the press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, the situation is “critical” complicate sanctions against Russia. “If there were no such restrictions, <…> all repair work, and warranty, and repair, and service work would be carried out in the usual, routine, operational manner, without leading to such situations that we see now, — he noted.
