The Ministry of Defense announced the destruction of 90% of Ukrainian airfields

90% of Ukrainian military airfields, where the main part of military aviation was based, have been disabled, according to the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov.

According to the Russian military departments, in the combat composition of the Ukrainian armed forces, there were up to 250 combat aircraft and helicopters. Russian troops destroyed 89 combat aircraft and 57 helicopters. Part of the Ukrainian aviation moved to Romania. She does not participate in battles.

Recall that on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a military special operation in Ukraine. Many foreign companies then began to leave the Russian market, and Western countries imposed sanctions. 


Why is the potato genome more complex than the human one?

German scientists were able to completely decipher the DNA sequence of potatoes. It turned out to be more complex and confusing than that of people. Published in Nature Genetics, science will facilitate breeding and develop more productive and disease-resistant root varieties.

The human genome was deciphered more than 20 years ago. The same work has been done in relation to many animals and plants, but scientists have reached the potato only now. This was done by researchers from the Institute of Plant Industry of the Max Planck Society (Germany). 

Today we buy and eat the same varieties of potatoes that existed 100 years ago. When, in the middle of the 20th century, breeders began to develop new varieties of agricultural crops, this almost did not affect the potato. tetraploid. It contains four distinct sets of chromosomes, not two as in humans. In other words, this plant inherits two copies of the chromosome from each parent, and it is very difficult to form the required feature for the breeder. Therefore, creating new varieties with the desired combination of properties is very difficult, time consuming and laborious.

German scientists went to the trick. They didn't sequence the DNA of the plant itself, but its pollen. Its cells contain only half of the set of chromosomes – two copies, not four. This facilitated the decoding of the sequence of the entire genome.

As the researchers write, their scientific work paves the way for the development of new varieties of potatoes. Having complete information about its genome, it will be easier to recognize the gene variants responsible for the desired or undesirable properties of this popular crop.

“Potatoes are becoming an increasingly integral part of our diets around the world, including in Asian countries such as China, where rice is traditionally the staple food,” says study leader and geneticist Korbinian Schneeberger. – Based on our work, it is possible to introduce genomic breeding of new potato varieties that will be more productive and also resistant to climate change. This could have a huge impact on food security in the coming decades.”


Media: Discovery stops broadcasting TV channels in Russia

The American media company Discovery has decided to temporarily stop all its activities in Russia.

In this regard, on March 9, the broadcast of about 15 of its TV channels is suspended, Variety reports, citing a company statement. .

Among these channels are Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2.

Earlier, several Western companies announced that they were curtailing their business in Russia. On the eve it became known that the fast food chain McDonald's temporarily closes all its restaurants in our country.


When will an ultrapolar invasion bring a cold snap to Moscow?

Expert's answer 1 + –

From March 9, Moscow and the Moscow region will experience an abnormal cooling. Frosts in March will be brought by an ultrapolar invasion, the Gimdrometcenter reports.


“A cold snap will first affect Siberia, the Urals and the north-east of the European part of Russia, by Thursday frosts will reach Moscow and St. Petersburg, then it will get colder in the Volga region. The temperature anomaly will be from 7 to 12 degrees below normal,” said Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, to RIA Novosti.

it's okay.

“Synoptic processes return us to winter weather, and to deep winter weather,” the specialist said.

 What is an ultrapolar invasion?

There are two types of Arctic air entry into the European territory of Russia (ETR): polar and ultrapolar.

If cold air masses moving from northwest to southeast, they are called polar. And if from the northeast to the southwest — ultrapolar.

According to weather forecasters, the characteristic signature of ultrapolar occurrences is a rapid drop in temperature and an equally rapid transition of the sky to a cloudless state. 

It is also called ultrapolar in order to emphasize that the movement of cold air comes from afar &mdash ; from North Pole.

 When will it get warmer in Moscow?

According to the forecasts of the Hydrometeorological Center, Muscovites will not expect spring heat (about +15 degrees during the day) until the second half of April.

&laquo The Moscow Region is located in temperate latitudes, at the 55th parallel of the Northern Hemisphere. It's not tropical or subtropical. Snow in the Moscow region, according to average values, melts in open areas (in fields) in the first decade of April. And in the forests — only in the middle of April. Therefore, you will have to be patient and wait until the snow melts, the stable temperature passes through zero degrees, ice drifts and icebreakers pass on the rivers, — explained "" Roman Vilfand.

The Constitutional Court of Russia withdrew from the Conference of European Courts

The Constitutional Court of Russia announced its withdrawal from the Conference of European Constitutional Courts (CECC).

The decision was made after, on the initiative of several courts — members of the KEKS, all members of the Conference were sent protocols for voting on the issue of terminating or suspending the membership of the CC of the Russian Federation against the backdrop of the situation in Ukraine.

The CC statement says that this indicates an unacceptable and dangerous politicization of KEKS, as well as distorted understanding of the role of constitutional justice bodies, RIA Novosti reports.

It is noted that the Constitutional Court, functioning in the system of separation of powers, cannot act on its own initiative with any official decisions on the legality or illegality of the actions of other state bodies and make political statements, otherwise it leads to the discrediting of justice.

In this regard, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation found it impossible to further participate in the KEKS and announced its withdrawal from it on March 5.

Earlier it became known that the European Organization for Nuclear Research due to the aggravation of the situation around Ukraine suspended its cooperation with Russia.


Vilfand told what the weather will be like in March in the central part of Russia

Scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Vilfand told what weather should be expected in March in the center of the European part of Russia.

In general, according to him, weather forecasters predict a rather warm March, temperatures this month will be near the climatic norm.

In Moscow, the end of the first decade of March will be cold, but in the “third five-day period” Temperatures are expected to rise again, Vilfand said in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

He added that at the end of March, the Hydrometeorological Center will release a preliminary weather forecast for the period from April to September of this year.

As for the spring flood forecast, it will be released in just a few days – in the south, center and west of European Russia, the weather forecaster said.

Earlier, the Hydrometeorological Center reported that an abnormal cooling was expected in Moscow and the Moscow region from March 9. Frosts in the capital region will bring an ultrapolar invasion.


Celebrating International Women’s Day in different countries

On March 8, actions were held in different countries in honor of International Women's Day — day of women's solidarity and struggle for equality. International Women's Day is supported by the United Nations, and in some countries is a public holiday and non-working day.

The history of the holiday began more than 150 years ago. Then the women took to the march in New York to improve working conditions. And in 1910, a communist woman proposed to celebrate the day of solidarity of working women Clara Zetkin: on this day it was supposed to organize rallies and processions, attracting the public to their problems. The tradition of celebrating March 8 became stronger after the women of Austria-Hungary, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Russia, the USA and a number of other countries held rallies on this day in 1914.

RKN demanded that TikTok remove restrictions from the recording of Putin’s address

Roskomnadzor demanded that the TikTok administration promptly remove restrictions from the video recording of the address of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The social network has restricted access to the audio track of this video for foreign users. The RKN also demanded an explanation of the reasons for blocking the sound in this video.

The agency noted that these actions violate the key principles of the free flow of information and access to it, RIA Novosti reports.

At the end of last week TikTok has suspended the distribution of new content in Russia and live broadcasts due to the country's “fake news” law.

The social network promised to evaluate the changed circumstances to determine when it can fully resume work in the Russian Federation .


Psaki: sending planes to Ukraine from the US base is not in the interests of Washington

Sending combat aircraft to Ukraine from a US base is not in the interests of Washington and NATO, RIA Novosti reports.

This was announced on Wednesday during a conversation with reporters by White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

“You don't need to be a military expert to explain why flying a plane from a US base to a contested part of the country where there is a war is not in our interests,” she said.

At the same time, Psaki noted that in order to transport aircraft from Poland to Ukraine by land, they would have to be disassembled and reassembled, and this requires highly qualified specialists.

The day before, United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken also said that in Washington did not understand why Warsaw wants to send MiG-29 aircraft to Ukraine by transferring them to the US.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a special military operation in Ukraine. According to the head of state, its goal is the demilitarization and denazification of the country. At the same time, he stressed that Moscow's plans do not include the occupation of Ukrainian territories.

Earlier it was also reported that the United States intends to allocate ten billion dollars to help Ukraine.


Why did Europe “fail”? Natalia Narochnitskaya – about the hysteria of the West

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 10. Wings of the Soviets 09/03/2022

"The Western world is able to become united only by taking up arms against Russia" — considers the historian Natalia Narochnitskaya.

The doctor of historical sciences and the president of the Historical Perspective Foundation expressed her opinion about what the next acute phase of the struggle between two irreconcilable civilizations will lead the world to  ;AiF».

EU — Hitler's project?

Vladimir Kozhemyakin, AiF: — Natalia Alekseevna, on the  pages of «AIF» you not said the conflict of two civilizations — Russia and the West. Are we watching its apogee?

Natalia Narochnitskaya: — The peak of the conflict has not yet passed. The confrontation between the combined West and Russia as an alternative path of common Christian civilization and the main player in the post-Byzantine Orthodox space has entered an acute phase. Russia — it is not only the Orthodox Oecumene, but and a huge geopolitical value, which by its very existence does not allow anyone to become the master of the world.

We've been challenged — we lifted the glove. The West managed to force us into a military operation. The Western European world again became united, forgetting contradictions, uniting against Russia. And for the first time in the desire to prevent the growth of its influence Europe felt like one whole after the victory of the Russian Empire in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878 . During World War I, it was divided into warring blocs. It is now clear that the Second World War, when the Anglo-Saxons were with us against Hitler, was simply their family dispute over sovereignty. And when the USSR disappeared, our enemy again appeared before us in all its “glory”. 

A symbolic map of Europe, issued in Italy in 1870. Russia is depicted on it in the form of a toothy gentleman with a cleaver in his hands. The perception of the Russian state in the minds of Westerners has not changed much over a century and a half. Photo: Public Domain

  Putin once said that «the border of Russia ends nowhere». Where in the current conflict are the lines where it should stop?

— The intention to «protect your own» does not mean that it is necessary to conquer and annex all territories where Russian is spoken. Russian World — where Russian culture prevails, adherence to the values ​​of Russia, fidelity to its & nbsp; history. Geographically, this world is not so clearly delineated. But the outcome of this struggle will affect how their attitude towards Russians in other states, whether will dare to oppress, humiliate them, inspire them second-class, forbid to speak Russian.

Denazification — not only the liquidation of all Nazi structures, lustration and removal from social activities of active champions of the Nazi idea, not only the trial of criminals. It is also the eradication of this ideology in historical science, the media, culture, and art. Germany in this respect was “under the hood” almost 50 years and managed to raise a generation that today hardly believes what their grandfathers could have created. In Ukraine for 30 years everything happened the other way around. If we waited another 10–15 years, a new generation brought up already from school in hatred Russia and worship before Bandera, would occupy all commanding heights, change all leaders, university professors and teachers in schools, the entire army up to the last soldier. And then the process could become almost irreversible.

— There is an opinion that, judging by the actions of today's Germany, which supplies Kiev with weapons, its denazification from 1945  was not carried out to  Do you agree?

— I don't think Chancellor Olaf Scholz — fan of Nazism. But  Germany's support for the Bandera regime, the readiness to use it as a bayonet against Russia once again testifies to that after World War II, not only the Germans, but and the whole Old World experienced hidden jealousy that Russia — «alien barbarian element» — saved Europe. Today we see there the sleep dream of revenge for the the the the humiliation that the European peoples suffered, which surrendered and  kneeled before Hitler, and we then redeemed Europe’s liberty with blood, honor and peace» (lines A. S. Pushkin. — Ed.). Recently, Scholz dropped that Germany supports Ukraine because they have common values.  — which? Nazi revanchist ideology that became the state policy of the Ukrainian regime? Maybe the values ​​of the whole EU are the same? Few people know that the first serious ideas of a “united Europe” belonged to Mussolini and Hitler. It turns out that the EU is now being transformed into the same same project? 

Price of Liberation

— You are surprised that we were not greeted with flowers in Ukraine, as in 2014   in Crimea ? Judging by the reaction of many of its residents, they don perceive          military personnel of the Russian Armed Forces as liberators…

— In south of Ukraine, in Kharkiv, — i.e.  e. where Russia could count on more or less unanimous support, or at least the loyalty of citizens, after the Maidan and coup of 2013–2014  a large-scale purge of administrative and educational structures was carried out. Nationalists were appointed governors and mayors, rectors and university professors, powerful groups of highly motivated and well-trained Nazis were created and quartered. The fortified areas of Mariupol, for example, were simply staffed with militants from "Right Sector" (banned in  RF. — Ed.), who have undergone military training over the years under the guidance of NATO specialists. In addition, the people there, of course, are intimidated, already used to obey.

Well and in as a whole Ukraine has always been characterized by very philistine moods. Many thought: it would be nice if Russia helped, freed them from national and cultural oppression, but without difficulties and losses, as if by magic. Woke up one day — and no oppression! A here — “Caliber” they fly, the lights go out, there are explosions all around, — it means that somehow Russia entered in a wrong way … However, it never happens without losses. You have to fight for freedom and pay with comfort. But, of course, even for those who were not Russophobe, but lived with a strong Ukrainian self-consciousness, what happened was a trauma to the national feeling. And of Russian people motivated to struggle, many moved to Donbass or Russia a long time ago. 

I know many people, including scientists, who live in Ukraine, although they do not accept Nazi ideology. But if they now say something against her, while there are no Russian soldiers there, they will simply be killed. As for the actual Bandera Nazis — it’s impossible to reforge them, they just need to be paralyzed, and the criminals are severely punished. 

Compulsion to suicide

— Are the inhabitants of NATO countries ready to fight Russia on  — in the trenches?

 For half a century after the World War, people there got used to living in a relaxed way and therefore therefore don don't want to sacrifice their comfort, let alone their lives. The West showed its comfort priorities already in the days of Hitler. They surrendered to fascism without even trying to seriously resist. Their  resistance was moral: they hated the fascist invaders, but did said, like the Russians: "Better in a coffin than to be a slave". And now it is a pleasure for the body and admiring your freedom without borders, where there is no difference between sin and virtue, — these are the main values ​​of a European. In past centuries, and European culture is a witness to this, the values ​​were different. Faith, Fatherland and honor, duty for a German, Frenchman, Englishman were higher than life. Otherwise they would not create their great powers and culture. And today Europe has faded away. What is there "in the trenches" — they can only fight in their Russophobia. 

— Happening in Ukraine — a consequence of mistakes, miscalculations of the West in relation to our country, or a stage of its plan for "containment" Russia? Maybe in the USA are now rubbing their hands and rejoicing that two fraternal peoples are destroying each other and inflame mutual hatred for many years?

— After World War II, the West did everything to weaken us, contain us and reject us. But something went wrong we broke their script. Now the whole world is looking at Russia with bated breath. Do you think everyone in the world is happy with US dictates? Even their  satellites and many nations of the non-Western world, entangled in the financial web, over which the Damocles sword of Americans hangs, do not like them and want to expand the boundaries of their foreign policy possibilities. Everyone is waiting. And now      fighting not only for the lives of millions of Russian people in the east of Ukraine, but  for our own free future, and for the future of the world, in which justice and independence of many countries will be restored. The West is in hysterics, because it understands this very well. Therefore, he and not allows Ukraine to capitulate — demands a sea of ​​blood and a humanitarian catastrophe.

Rocket named Diana. Traumatologist needs rehabilitation

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 10. Wings of the Soviets 09/03/2022

help NOW

Yesterday was a special day. Some sang of spring and beauty. Others recalled the story and reminded: 8 March — holiday of strong women. Such as Diana Goova.

The main and only patient of the resuscitator Diana Goova — she herself. Diana failed to drive a car in the mountains of Kabardino-Balkaria. I was returning from a refresher course in anesthesiology and resuscitation, was distracted by a  gasoline sensor — and           the flying     ) It happened three years ago, March 18 — right on the day of St. Luke, the patron saint of all physicians.

Diana did not lose consciousness and immediately understood everything about her diagnosis: a fracture of several vertebrae with compression of the spinal cord. «Behind was riding„gazelle“ with my critical care nurse. They saw the accident and immediately rushed to help me. And I already knew that it was impossible to move me, because my spine was broken. The first step was to remove the pain shock. She herself supervised resuscitation, told her sister what drugs to inject me. Well and then I was taken to Mozdok hospital, at the place of work».  Need help To learn how to walk, Diana Goova (31 years old, Mozdok) needs rehabilitation at the cost of 759 thousand.

Diana's colleagues assembled her again, like a designer. Titanium was placed in the spine just above the waist. They did what they could, and then everything depended not on surgeons and not on patron saints — from herself.

For  9 years of work in medicine (six of them  — a resuscitator) Diana saw many impossible things. For example, like babies weighing 700 grams — you can hold it on the palm of your hand — crawling out under glass caps at the Bakulev Center, where she began her career in the intensive care unit for premature babies. Diana, then still a young doctor, staying on the night shift, was afraid to breathe on them. She watched from the great triumph of life and quietly did her work.

In addition to work, there were  dances (in branch of the Moscow “Todes”), and music — "We in all the family are musicians, and the first great love, for it it it it it               At the Mozdok hospital, Diana chose the intensive care unit, where the most difficult — after a stroke, coma, accident. From there, either to & nbsp; rehabilitation, or … & nbsp;

Diana saved many from this "either". And  now those whom she once saved transferred money to the card, carried oranges to the hospital and left messages on social networks: "Thanks to you, our son is alive. Get well soon! And here big love was left behind, in that precipice. Only a stamp about  divorce and a little son, whom you can not even take into your hands. But friends, former patients and fellow doctors immediately organized a collection for the first rehabilitation courses.

And just a couple of months after the accident, Diana felt a tingling sensation in her toes, and then her legs themselves. She learned to move her feet again, straighten her knees and change into a wheelchair. She refused a nurse, and took care of the house herself.  it was not possible to do something from the stroller — slid down on all fours. A year after the accident, she invested all her savings in an old Hyundai and transferred it to manual control. And then got the wheel and went to the  — — work! She was hired as a methodologist, and that was just the beginning   

25 rehabilitations in three years — now Diana feels her body at & nbsp; 85%. And she necessarily needs 100%. It is also important to learn how to keep balance and get rid of hypertonicity in the legs. Diana does not want to stop and is looking for money for new rehabilitations: the injury is considered old, and according to CHI no rehabilitation rehabilitation center no longer accepts it.

"Once I was in your shoes and saved the lives of people" — this is how she begins her letters to charities. In one fund not only took the collection, but and was called to work. In  February, Diana, together with son and mother, moved to Moscow. He works remotely from a rented apartment, a couple of times a week he comes to the office. He tries to move more on crutches, but dreams of switching to a cane. “At work, I handle requests for help. Ten days are given for consideration of the application, but I can handle it in two. „You like a rocket“ — colleagues say. And I just understand that the people who contact us account for every hour».

Every hour of life is priceless. And every hour of classes in rehabilitation center has a very specific cost. To complete a rehabilitation course at the "Three Sisters", you need 750 thousand

Without this, Diana will not be able to help her main patient. To myself.

Expert Opinion

Rehabilitator at  RC "Three Sisters" Denis Talankin:

— Diana is recovering from a severe spinal cord injury and fracture of several vertebrae as a result of an accident. Her physical condition is stable, but her physical condition requires constant rehabilitation. For three years, Diana learned to get up, move independently, and fully serve herself. But and now she requires muscle strengthening, the formation of muscle memory lost due to lack of movement and damage to the nerves. The forecasts for recovery are very favorable.

“The result of a monstrous miscalculation.” How bin Laden became famous and disappeared without a trace

On March 10, 1957, a boy named Osama, who later became “Terrorist No. 1” for the world.

He was one of 56 (!) children of the billionaire Mohammed bin Laden, who was called none other than the “royal builder”. After the death of his father, the guy inherited millions of dollars. Young Osama studied at  Jeddah University, and  according to one information in 1981 he received a diploma, and according another — dropped out of university after his third year and went to  Pakistan.

Under the US umbrella

The media reported that he inherited $250-300 million from his father. One way or another, when the war broke out in Afghanistan, Osama from Pakistan began to support the activities of Islamist groups opposed to the Afghan government at his own expense. In 1988, he founded Al-Qaeda — ultra-radical international terrorist organization (banned in the Russian Federation). After the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, this organization directed all its efforts to the fight against the United States and other countries of the West.

When the contingent of the US army was introduced into Saudi Arabia and American military bases were created, bin Laden accused the authorities of betrayal. In response, the government of Saudi Arabia expelled bin Laden from the kingdom in 1991, and he moved to Sudan.

Some politicians and researchers believe that the CIA had links with Osama, especially at the time when he helped the Mujahideen in the fight against the Soviet troops in Afghanistan. So, British Foreign Secretary from 1997 to 2001 Robin Cookwrote: “Bin Laden was the result of a monstrous miscalculation by Western intelligence agencies. Throughout the 1980s, it armed the CIA and was funded by the Saudis to wage war against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. In turn, American officials claimed that they supported only native Afghans and denied any connection with bin Laden.

“Destroy the Americans!”

While in Sudan, Osama set up a militant training base in Khartoum. In addition, he invested heavily in road construction and charity, and became a very popular personality in the country. In the end, the Sudanese authorities also expelled the leader of al-Qaeda from the country, and in the spring of 1996 he went to Afghanistan. Moreover, according to the official biography of Osama bin Laden, he personally participated in combat clashes. However, there are reasons to consider him not so much as the main terrorist militant, but as one of their main financiers.

In  August 1996, Al-Qaeda proclaimed that the destruction of the Americans — sacred duty of Muslims. People started talking about al-Qaeda and bin Laden after the terrorist attacks that occurred on August 7, 1998 near the buildings of the American embassies in Nairobi (Kenya) and in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). It happened on the eighth anniversary of the deployment of US troops in Saudi Arabia. The attacks attracted attention on an unprecedented scale: more than 250 people were killed and more than 5,000 people were injured. A previously unknown organization, the Islamic Army for the Liberation of Holy Sites, claimed responsibility for the atrocity, but the United States considers al-Qaeda's involvement in these crimes proven.

A little earlier, on June 15, 1996, bin Laden's militants organized an explosion of a residential complex in Saudi Arabia, where American pilots were stationed. 19 people died, more than 350 were injured. The most high-profile terrorist attack occurred in the USA on September 11, 2001. Then a group of 19 terrorists hijacked 4 American passenger planes. Two of them crashed into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, after which the skyscrapers caught fire and collapsed. The third plane that rammed the Pentagon caused serious damage to the left wing of the military building. The crew of the fourth airliner tried to take control of the aircraft from the terrorists, and the aircraft crashed into open fields.

As a result of the terrorist attack on September 11, almost 5,000 people were killed and about 6,300 were injured. The US government demanded that  Afghanistan extradite Osama bin Laden, to which the Taliban put forward a counteroffer — transfer bin Laden for trial in a neutral country. The Americans rejected this idea and, together with NATO allies, launched a large-scale operation to overthrow the Taliban regime. As a result, al-Qaeda's training camps and bases were destroyed, but bin Laden managed to escape to Pakistan.

Obama or Osama?

After the events of September 11, al-Qaeda began to attribute almost all the terrorist attacks committed in the world. By the way, some experts on international terrorism argue that Al-Qaeda is in reality a very small group that simply shares its “brand” with other bandits. Only one — Bin Laden was a terrorist and financed terrorists. It is believed that on May 2, 2011, it was destroyed by American special forces in Pakistan. However, information about the liquidation of the terrorist number 1 was received in the media by that time more than times.

Doubts about bin Laden's death were provoked by the Americans themselves. SWAT did not take Osama alive — he was reportedly shot dead and his body drowned in the ocean. In addition, not a single one of the participants in the storming of bin Laden's house remained alive. They died in  August of the same year. Initial Version — helicopter crash for technical reasons. Then there was the official version of the Pentagon — helicopter shot down by Taliban in Afghanistan. Former Pakistani intelligence chief Hamid Gul stated in a CNN interview in May 2011 that bin Laden had died many years ago and that the May 2 death report was a hoax. Like, there is no visible evidence of the fact of the elimination of Osama.

US President Barack Obama believed that the photos of the dead terrorist No. 1 should not be published, as they would only warm up anti-American moods. By the way, some conspiracy theorists seriously talked about the connection between the leader of the United States and the main terrorist of the planet. They found a portrait resemblance of these people and seriously tried to establish the degree of their kinship.


Disease Market. Who needs a global dictatorship?

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 10. Wings of the Soviets 09/03/2022

Dr. Matthias Rath – why global corporations need a “disease market” and escalation of tension in the world.

Big business is to blame for whipping up international tension, controlling not only the arms, energy and high technology markets, but also the pharmaceutical industry. The well-known scientist Matthias Rath spoke about this in June 2021 in connection with the Moscow Conference on International Security– successor to the work of the winner of two Nobel Prizes and the International Lenin Prize for Strengthening Peace Linus Pauling. His predictions came true.

Dr. Rath is sure that the NATO countries deliberately provoked a global military conflict, and the pharmaceutical industry, despite its peaceful purpose, has turned into a cynical predator in recent decades.

The pharmaceutical market is worth trillions of dollars. Dr. Rath predicted that, fearing an imminent collapse, global pharmaceutical corporations would take extreme measures – up to provoking an open confrontation.

As you can see, over the past 8 months the situation has only worsened – the crisis escalated to an unprecedented level, and open confrontation began. But there is still a chance to get out of it.

By the rules of corporate greed

– How do you assess the current situation?

– The world is on the verge of a global conflict. It is obvious. But the true motives for the brutal aggression of NATO and its political leaders towards Russia are not at all obvious. I am sure that, among other things, these are corporate interests. And they should be sorted out in order to increase the chances of humanity to get out of the crisis and avoid a global catastrophe.

– So let's figure it out. First of all, why do you consider the pharmaceutical investment business a threat to the world?

– In the minds of people, the term “pharmaceuticals” is associated, as a rule, with a good – desire for health and healing. However, upon closer examination, it turns out that the originally noble cause in Western countries has been captured and subjected to the rules of corporate greed for more than a century ago.

If you look closer at the existing investment business model, you can see its devastating consequences.


Firstly, the pharmaceutical industry in Western countries – it is not a healthcare industry serving the benefit of millions of people, but primarily an investment business that serves the financial interests of its shareholders.

Secondly, the return on investment in the pharmaceutical business comes from royalties from the sale of patented drugs. At the heart of the business model is their “patent” ability.

Thirdly, the market for the products of the pharmaceutical investment business is provided by incessant illnesses. The more of them, the higher the profit of shareholders.

Therefore, effective disease prevention, essentially aimed at eliminating global “disease markets”, naturally undermines the business of pharmaceutical corporations, fueled by a variety of human ailments. Generic natural drugs created by scientists to preserve their health pose a deadly threat to them.

In the XX century. involved financial interests from a handful of Western countries have successfully extorted trillions of dollars from the peoples of the world. Money has been used to control political parties, governments, the media, medicine, and armies.

A global scam that promises health but thrives on the spread of disease has become one of the most lucrative investment businesses in history humanity, as well as the economic backbone of Western societies.

– Do you draw such conclusions not only from the analysis of facts, but also from your own experience?

– Yes. In the first decades of this century, research on the properties of micronutrients – bioactive molecules of plant origin, what I do, – have become the fastest growing field of medicine. Thanks to them, drugs created within the framework of non-patent healthcare have received scientific justification. Their benefits have been proven. And application has reduced and continues to reduce the number of cardiovascular, oncological and many other common diseases that are still the basis for a multi-billion dollar market for patented pharmaceuticals.

It is clear that this poses a great danger to the financial circles behind the pharmaceutical investment business: they risk losing tens of trillions of dollars. And their political partners in Western countries are threatened with a loss of confidence in the political system that has allowed fraud to flourish for decades, parasitize on the lives of people and state budgets that allocate colossal funds for healthcare.

I believe that the pharmaceutical investment business – the second largest fraud after the sale of indulgences in the Middle Ages.

Who needs a global dictatorship?

– But how does it relate to military interests?

– To prevent the collapse of the economic and political system of the West, its leaders, in a desperate attempt to ensure their survival, turned NATO into an aggressive army. Desperation fuels aggression, and they are ready to drag humanity down the abyss.

It is vital for the political elites of key NATO countries to continue their drug business. This is necessary for the survival of capitalism as a system. From their short-sighted point of view, the only way to delay their own death – this is a military confrontation with Russia and China – world powers that are moving towards leading positions in the modern world.

Subsequently creating a post-nuclear world, NATO countries will try to establish a global corporate dictatorship by introducing permanent martial law on a global scale.

– What political forces do you think are behind the current military escalation undertaken by NATO countries?

– You can see that politicians of the leading countries of the world exporting pharmaceuticals are provoking confrontation. These are the EU countries and the UK, which account for about 70% of global drug exports. Germany stands apart – this is a separate story with a 15% share, plus the US – with 10%.

Among the key political players – Ron Klein, White House chief of staff, former pharmaceutical investment banker behind the fragile Joe Biden. They also include Ursula von der Leyen, the “uncrowned” the head of the European Union, who does not forget about the interests of German pharmaceutical exports.

Historical parallels

– Are you convinced that the global investment industry is willing to risk the lives of millions of people?

– And not for the first time. The driving economic forces of the two world wars of the XX century. were the German chemical and pharmaceutical giants Bayer, BASF and Hoechst. In 1925, they formed the infamous IG Farben cartel, which produced, in fact, all the explosives (and not only) that killed more than 20 million innocent people in the USSR and tens of millions more in other countries. 24 leaders of this cartel were convicted at the VI trial of the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal for genocide, forced slavery and other crimes against humanity.

The conclusions of the tribunal unequivocally confirm that the Second World War was one of the attempts to conquer the world undertaken by the German chemical and pharmaceutical industries with the assistance of their political and military minions.

– Are there other historical parallels to what we are seeing now?

– In the XVI century. millions of ordinary people in Europe made a giant leap out of the Dark Ages, learning to read and write thanks to the invention of the printing press and the mass printing of books. But knowledge means power, and the rulers did not want to voluntarily give it up. Therefore, at the beginning of the XVII century. they dragged Europe into a devastating 30-year war in which millions of people died and much of the territory was destroyed. Nevertheless, their efforts did not prevent the advent of the New Age.

All major achievements in human history are preceded by a kind of dead end, causing the “rulers of the world” who find themselves in front of a blank wall to attempts to maintain the status quo and prevent their own destruction. The current threat from the – exporters of pharmaceuticals and at the same time NATO members are no exception. The difference between the events of the distant past and today is only in the weapons they use. Instead of cannonballs – nuclear missiles.

However, today we have an undeniable advantage. In the Middle Ages, people did not have an example to look back at. We have it. Humanity must understand that, as a reward for choosing the path of progress, it will receive liberation from the shackles of diseases that are really preventable, and the advent of an era of unprecedented health and prosperity. 

Toward an era of health and prosperity

– Why do you think the governments of the world did not do away with the unscrupulous pharmaceutical investment business sooner?

– The pharmaceutical industry has spent billions of dollars to masquerade as the only conduit and bearer of health. Moreover, the leaders of the medical community in many countries are either economically or dogmatically dependent on the global drug business. Unfortunately, political decision makers are often advised by the medical “experts” involved in the business.

– Have you made such strong statements before about the threat to the world posed by the pharmaceutical industry?

– During the war in Iraq, some figures in the US and NATO demanded that it be ended with the use of nuclear weapons. I believe that our exposure of the corporate interests behind such irresponsible plans, published in The New York Times, and other newspapers around the world helped publicize and make this scenario impossible.

– What do you think needs to be done now to reduce tension in the world?

– It is necessary to publicly expose the true corporate interests of “pharmaceutical extremists”; in front of the whole world. Only in this way will humanity be able to understand the intricacies of deceit and pacify destructive interests, including those within the NATO countries. This, in particular, is facilitated by the website: 

Moreover, it is necessary to immediately implement strategies that would put an end to the destructive impact on the peoples of the world.

Responsible governments should establish working groups, including representatives from the ministries of education, agriculture, defense and health, to promote preventive public health programs based on the undeniable benefits of natural plant bioactives and other generic micronutrients.

Focusing health care on disease prevention will counter the trends of the orchestrated and purely profit-making pharmaceutical investment business spectacle. This is an essential condition for humanity to achieve world peace and enter an era of unprecedented global health and prosperity. Russia, I am sure, can become the leader of this historic transition.


Dr. Matthias Rath was born in Stuttgart (Germany) in 1955. After graduation, he worked as a doctor and research assistant at the University Hospital of Hamburg and the German Heart Center in Berlin. His research focused on the causes of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.

In 1987, he discovered a link between vitamin C deficiency and lipoprotein A – risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. After the publication of the results of his research, he accepted the invitation and joined the team of two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, who later named him his successor.

Today, Dr. Rath heads a research institute where research is being conducted in the field of nutrition and cellular medicine. He is the founder of the scientific concept of cellular medicine, which focuses on the role of micronutrients as the most important biocatalysts in numerous metabolic reactions in our body at the cellular level. According to him, many common diseases, including atherosclerosis, hypertension, arrhythmia, diabetes, etc., are primarily associated with chronic micronutrient deficiencies.

Dr. Rath – member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Heart Association and other scientific organizations. His popular science books Why Animals Don't Have a Heart Attack, but Humans Do and “Winning Cancer” translated into many languages ​​and read by millions of people.

He is confident that his research in cellular medicine and vitamins provides the scientific basis for a new health care system that will focus on disease prevention and allow people around the world to free themselves from pharmaceutical addiction.

Keys to the closed sky. What will we fly instead of Boeings and Airbuses?

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 10. Wings of the Soviets 09/03/2022 Plot Sanctions against Russia and Russia's retaliatory measures

Europe, Japan, Canada and the United States have imposed sanctions against Russian airlines — banned from flying, supplying their aircraft and spare parts. What will we fly now?

Chief editor of the portal Roman Gusarov:

Who will pay the big price

Europeans are recalling all aircraft that are registered in the European register and belong to European companies, — and it doesn't matter if it's Boeing or Airbus. In addition, they impose a ban on the supply of spare parts and maintenance of aircraft used by Russian airlines.

The Americans did not impose a ban on aircraft leasing, but they blocked the supply of high-tech products and their components. Therefore, Boeing has announced that it will no longer supply spare parts and support the operation of Russian Boeings. Also forbids their repair in the centers licensed by this company.

There is a fundamental difference between European and American sanctions.

If the Europeans force lessors to recall aircraft and thereby doom them to huge fines and other financial losses (lost profit plus maintenance costs), then the Americans acted more cunningly. They do not require the recall of Boeing, but prohibit the supply of spare parts. That is, it will still be impossible to fly on them.

This, in their opinion, will either lead to the fact that the planes will be on the ground, but we will have to pay for them, or our airlines will terminate the agreements on their own initiative. And then they will already pay huge fines to lessors for early termination.

But the goal of the Europeans and Americans is the same — deprive us of the aircraft fleet. At the same time, both of them will pay a much higher price for this than we do.

Own someone else's fleet

In total, there are about 1.3 thousand aircraft of all sizes in Russia. Of these, foreign — 824 (64%). In the first place are the Europeans Airbus, in the second, with a small margin, the American Boeing (hundreds of aircraft). There are still quite a few (units) of Canadian Bombardier and Brazilian Embraer. The Brazilians, by the way, also announced that they would stop selling us their aircraft and spare parts for them. But they are short-haul (up to 2.5 thousand km), and we have no problems with the regional park. For this, domestic boards — new “superjets” and also Soviet An-2s (from the An-2 “maize” to the regional An-26).

Domestic aircraft in the Russian fleet is less than 20%. But even here there are problems, since the vast majority of systems, for example, our SuperJet — European. Only the fuselage, cabin and our heat exchangers. Deliveries of a completely domestic SuperJet (SuperJet new) were planned only from 2024

However, all of them are short-haul or regional, that is, they will not fly from Moscow to Vladivostok. As well as the medium-haul (with a range of up to 6 thousand km) MS-21, the production of which is just beginning. There are domestic systems. Western components are used for them, but they can be replaced with Asian-made parts.

There are no long-haul ones (which fly further than 6 thousand km) at all — except to reactivate those Soviet aircraft that are now not in use and have been sent for storage. But this is impossible and does not make sense. It would be necessary to recreate the whole industry for serial production of aircraft parts, which existed in the USSR. And the development of the Russian-Chinese wide-body CR-929 is still in its infancy.

As for the proposal to set up the production of spare parts for Boeings and Airbuses in Russia, I consider it unsuccessful. It won't work — too many impossible or difficult conditions, this is a task for many years.

Making your own aircraft — stuff is complicated and expensive. For the Chinese, the creation of their own airliner is not easy. And the Japanese were forced to completely close their aircraft building project. They did not pull, although they have a lot of good specialists.

Who will be our ally

The Ministry of Transport recently discussed a radical solution to the issue: the nationalization of European and American-made airliners located in Russia. But why should we quarrel with aircraft owners, lessors who can become our allies?

And they are already dissatisfied with anti-Russian sanctions and do not hesitate to talk about it.

First of all, European businessmen are forced to submit, but they really do not want to receive planes instead of money, which will have nowhere to go. Some companies will go bankrupt because of this. The Americans have nothing to lose so far, but it is not difficult to foresee their reaction if the American authorities try the “European option” with mandatory recall of airliners.

Several Russian planes were detained at foreign airports, and then a statement from the European association of lessors followed: they say, we have notified the Russian airlines that we are ready to pick up the planes, but we cannot do this because the airspace is closed. In my opinion, they evaded the EU directive so gracefully.

Three solutions to the problem

I see three possible solutions to the problem.

First— lease of aircraft from Asian companies. At the same time, the aircraft remains the property of, for example, a Chinese airline, has a Chinese national registration, the Chinese airline repairs it and provides it with spare parts. And we just fly on it. It's like renting a car. At the same time slip us “scrap metal” will not succeed: the killed equipment will not be allowed to pass by the Federal Air Transport Agency. Each such aircraft is entered into the air operator's certificate and approved by the regulator.

Second option — if we don't have enough planes, we can give more flying rights to us to airlines from friendly countries, especially to popular international tourist destinations. This way we can meet the demand.

Third — in parallel, it is necessary to continue work on our own and joint aviation projects. In addition to the construction of the Russian-Chinese liner, I see another opportunity to create a modernized version of the Soviet aircraft. It is necessary to wait for the release of the domestic aircraft engine PD-35 — it should appear by the middle of this decade — and install it on IL-96-400.

96th Ilya are made in Voronezh “by the piece” for the president and state institutions. You can produce it in large quantities — not one plane in two years, but at least two or five aircraft a year. Structurally, the IL-96 is beautiful, there are trained personnel for its construction. If we install a new engine on it, we will get an excellent long-haul aircraft for 300–400 passengers.

By the way

Civil aviation appeared in our country in 1923. The first aircraft on the first airline were Moscow &mdash ; Nizhny Novgorod was served by German Junkers, but by 1935 the entire park was completely Soviet-made.

After the war, the Tu-104 became the second jet-powered commercial airliner in the world. It was developed on the basis of the Tu-16 bomber and could not become a full-fledged civilian vehicle. But all subsequent Soviet airliners were built exclusively for commercial operation. By the time of the collapse of the USSR, it independently produced all types of civil aircraft — except perhaps for business jets, and even then for lack of demand.

On local airlines worked “maize” An-2. Yak-40 and later Yak-42 were used as short-haul aircraft. Tu-154 became a classic medium-haul airliner for several decades. In departmental aviation, these unkillable machines are still flying. The long-haul Il-62 could carry 180 passengers over a distance of 11,000 km. When the fashion for wide-body aircraft began in the aviation world, the Soviet aviation industry created such ones. Development began in 1967, and in 1980 the first Il-86 wide-body aircraft were already carrying passengers. After 8 years, the IL-96 made its first flight. Finally, the Tu-144 became one of the two supersonic passenger aircraft in the world put into commercial operation.

In the later years of the USSR, the aviation industry had grandiose plans to upgrade the fleet. The Tu-204 was being prepared to replace the Tu-154, but less than a hundred vehicles were produced. The place of the Yak-40 was to be taken by the Tu-334, which had already lost in the 21st century. “Superjet 100”. For their time, these were excellent aircraft, but now it already has a purely historical significance.


Abramovich and 6 other Russians hit by UK sanctions

It became known which Russians' assets were frozen by the British authorities.

Seven businessmen from the Russian Federation, including Roman Abramovich, were included in the UK sanctions list.

This is stated in the document of the British Foreign Office, published on the website of the government.

Except for the ex-owner of & #8220;Chelsea”, the British authorities have frozen the assets of Alexei Miller, Oleg Deripaska, Igor Sechin, Nikolai Tokarev, Andrei Kostin and Dmitry Lebedev.

At the same time, Abramovich and Deripaska are prohibited from making transactions in the UK. Restrictions on yachts and private jets have also been introduced for them.

All businessmen from the list were banned from entering the UK.

The British Foreign Office calls the seven mentioned in the list of businessmen “ influential Russian oligarchs”. Their total fortune is estimated at about $ 19.76 billion.

Before that, the UK introduced restrictive measures on the defense industry, the financial and transport sectors of the Russian Federation.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that The UN called for an end to sanctions that hit ordinary citizens. In particular, the organization questioned the benefits of restrictions on the supply of COVID-19 vaccines.


Tamara Globa and Ziraddin Rzayev called the terms when the dollar will stabilize and the crisis will end

Astrologers explained what awaits the country in the next 2-3 years.

Russian astrologers Ziraddin Rzaev and Tamara Globa said that the economic crisis will not last long.

According to their version, the stars say that the date when a new economic recovery will begin in Russia has already been determined.

So, according to the finalist of the “Battle of Psychics” Ziraddin Rzayev, it will take two, at least three years, to wait for everything to return to normal.

The crisis, the astrologer predicts, will cover the whole world, and not just Russia. However, the stability of the dollar will happen earlier – he gave three months for this.

A gradual rise will already begin in June, and those Russians who are engaged in domestic production can count on success.

“The advice is to strive to develop as much as possible production,” the astrologer explained.

It is better to take a vacation after June, and Turkey, Egypt, the UAE and other open countries will be a suitable place for it.

Astrologer Tamara Globa, whom Russians see in the show “Let's Get Married!”, agrees with her colleague.

According to her, the global economic crisis will last two and a half years.

The current March will be the time of agreements and peace negotiations, and in April it will be possible to wait for a response.

In May, the time will come for new conflicts, which will subside only by the summer, when the forces take a break.

Another astrologer, Vasilisa Volodina, according to “StarHit”, voiced the opinion a year ago that Russia would enter a phase of crisis.

She considered 2022 to be economically connected with 2021, and both periods will demonstrate the consequences of what happened earlier . She also believes that Russia has its own economic phases, which, according to the stars, replace one another.

“The peak of our prosperity under the existing formation was reached in 2007, from that moment until 2025 everything goes down for a year,” Volodina said.

As Topnews wrote earlier, astrologers have previously named the most unlucky zodiac sign in 2022.


Inflation in Russia accelerated to 1998 levels: what goods and services went up by how much (LIST)

According to experts, annual inflation in Russia in early March amounted to 10.42%.

From February 26 to March 4, inflation accelerated in Russia. The indicator was 2.22%, despite the fact that from February 19 to February 25 it was 0.45%.

These data are provided by Rosstat.

“Interfax” notes that there has not been such a high increase in prices in a week since December 1998. Then, over the month, inflation was 11.6%.

In annual terms, inflation in Russia accelerated from February 26 to March 4 to 10.42% against 9.05% a week earlier.

According to the results of February, inflation in Russia in annual terms amounted to 9.15%.

From March 1 to March 4, prices rose by 1.26%, since the beginning of the year – by 3.46%.

Ksenia Sobchak provides statistics on Russian price growth in her Telegram channel.

She said that in the Russian capital there was a record increase in prices for 8 years for new buildings. Thus, the average cost of one square meter increased by 5% – to 281 thousand rubles.

During the first week of March, prices for cars and household appliances increased by 15%. Prices for domestic passenger cars rose by 17.1%, for foreign cars – 15.2%, TV sets – 15%, for vacuum cleaners – 14.6%.

Smartphones increased in price by 9.6%.

Sugar rose by 6.79%, pasta – at 5.02%, butter – at 4.77%, sour cream – by 4.24%, milk – by 4.2%.

Auto parts jumped in price by 30-50%. Dental services have become more expensive by 15%, and in Russia specialists use 98% of imported materials in their work.

Medicines have also risen in price, and prices for trips to Egypt and Turkey have increased by 80%.

As State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin stated, artificial price increases under the guise of sanctions are unacceptable when it comes to products produced and consumed in Russia.

He admitted that due to an increase in the exchange rate or problems with supplies from other countries, some goods in Russia may increase in price.

At the same time, Volodin pointed to the necessary stocks of goods from suppliers, emphasizing that there is no shortage, so the price increase is unreasonable.

Previously, TopNews wrote that Russia abolished the tax for individuals on the purchase of gold bars. The Cabinet of Ministers also decided to exempt from tax on interest on deposits for deposits in 2021-2022.


Reuters announces EU plans to phase out gas purchases from Russia

The terms of the “withdrawal” are not called.

The European Union intends to phase out Russian oil, gas and coal, although the exact dates have not yet been determined.

According to Reuters, citing the draft declaration of the EU summit in Versailles, an informal summit is scheduled for 10- March 11.

The document indicates that EU countries want to take on more responsibility amid new security threats and growing economic instability.

Among “decisive steps&#8221 ; the draft mentions strengthening European sovereignty, reducing dependence on other countries and creating a new growth model and investment projects for 2030.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire announced his intention to continue “total economic ”war against the Russian Federation and plans new sanctions against Moscow, which will be discussed in Versailles.

Apple and IKEA are on the list of companies that can nationalize

Law enforcement officers, Rospotrebnadzor and the Ministry of Industry and Trade will be able to form an open list.

Head of the organization “Public consumer initiative” Oleg Pavlov told the media that a list of companies that could be nationalized due to the fact that they stopped working in Russia had been sent to the Government of the Russian Federation and the Prosecutor General's Office. It included 59 organizations.

As he explained in an interview with “Izvestia”, the number of companies may increase depending on the statements of foreign companies.

According to Pavlov, The list already includes Volkswagen, Apple, IKEA, Microsoft, IBM, Shell, McDonald’s, Porsche, Toyota, H&M. and Rospotrebnadzor.

According to him, legal and even criminal proceedings will be taken against these enterprises, because they do not give guarantees to Russian consumers.

Obligations, at times, amount to 6 trillion rubles, equal to all the revenue they received in the Russian Federation for three years.

Pavlov stressed that, getting on the list, companies violating the law risk seizing accounts and assets, introducing external management at enterprises and nationalizing their property.
