The situation in Kazakhstan escalated immediately after the New Year: on January 2, rallies against the rise in gas prices began in Zhanaozen in the west of the country. Soon, the actions escalated into massive protests across the country, in which the disaffected put forward various political and economic demands. For two days, clashes between protesters and security forces began in Alma-Ata, there are people killed. The country's Ministry of Health has officially announced more than a thousand victims. Information is being specified.

On the morning of January 5, the President of Kazakhstan dismissed the government. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev also said that he took over the post of head of the country's Security Council, which previously belonged to the first president of the republic, Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Russia, meanwhile, has begun the transfer of military personnel to carry out a peacekeeping mission within the CSTO. According to available data, for work in Kazakhstan, first of all, it is planned to involve a brigade from the Orenburg region, as well as Belarusian military personnel. The forces of Armenia are currently concentrated in their homeland for obvious reasons, and the peacekeeping contingents of Central Asian neighbors – Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan – may refuse to use it, considering it inappropriate given the specifics of relations between the countries. However, according to the official statement, all CSTO states will participate.

Political scientist Zatulin named the reason for what is happening in Kazakhstan: the West has nothing to do with it

The Tokayev-Nazarbayev tandem has finally disintegrated in the country

The West could not organize what is happening in Kazakhstan, although its involvement in the events cannot be completely ruled out, the first deputy chairman said on the air of the Moscow Says radio State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, political scientist Konstantin Zatulin. The West will try to turn what is happening to its advantage. “But to believe that the West directly controls what is happening in Kazakhstan, achieves such results, it seems to me that this is too much,” the deputy added.

Western countries have long tried to pull Kazakhstan away from cooperation with Russia, hindering the integration of the two countries. Now we are witnessing the conflict between Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev and Nursultan Nazarbayev. Nazarbayev's supporters and henchmen are under intense pressure. This is evidenced, in particular, by the resignation of the first deputy head of the National Security Committee of Kazakhstan, Abish Samat Satybaldyuly, who is Nazarbayev's nephew.

The protests themselves were organized by nationalist residents of the suburbs, who were fed by the authorities. Liquefied gas was only a pretext for protests. There was a still unknown center that organized the protests. After leaving the presidency, Nazarbayev controlled many processes in the country, he remained the center of decision-making. “And it may very well be that this should be the reason for the protests, attempts to use dissatisfaction with the socio-economic situation to solve internal power problems,” says Zatulin. The expert pointed out an important fact – the socio-economic situation of Kazakhstan is much better than in neighboring countries of Central Asia.

Meanwhile, it became known about 12 killed during the protests of Kazakhstani security forces.

The building of the akimat was almost completely destroyed. almost completely destroyed. It could be seen that smoke was still coming from the windows of some floors.

Firefighting officers apparently do not work for the reason that most of the equipment was burned and they were simply not allowed in, because when there were no police or military on the street, protesters walked near the akimat, they had rebar and sticks in their hands .

At about 9 o'clock, the military suddenly appeared. The military column – armored personnel carriers, KAMAZ trucks with personnel. As soon as the military entered the square, a firefight began. It did not last long – 15-20 minutes. The military “dismounted”, lined up along the perimeter and were in the square for about 40 minutes. During this time, there was still a serious firefight there, it lasted about 40 seconds, machine gun fires sounded. Then, within 20 minutes, there were a couple of single shots. After that, the military loaded into the equipment and took off, went somewhere, to another area of ​​the city.

The air smells very strong, there are a lot of shops looted, glass is broken. Traffic lights were knocked down, benches, trash cans were torn out, paving stones that were used to erect barricades were dismantled.

Heinrich Schliemann – Russian start. Discovery of Troy from St. Petersburg?

200 years ago, on January 6, 1822, in the German Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, which was once quite a Slavic land with its capital in Veligrad, a child was born into the family of a rural pastor. The strange fate of his primordially Slavic homeland, which for several centuries held back the pressure of the Germans, and yet did not resist, also affected the fate of the boy. Subsequently, he, born German, will consider himself Russian. And he will even write: “ Repeating that I am Russian, that I am a native of Moscow, I experienced great pleasure. And I got used to it so much that I myself began to think of myself as a Muscovite. '' The boy's name was Heinrich Schliemann.

Yes, yes, he is the most famous archaeologist-amateur, or, as they wrote then, “ autodidact '', that is, self-taught. The man who discovered Troy and Mycenae in the Bronze Age. A man whose name for many is almost identical to the very concept of “ archeology ''. The person who & hellip; Here, in principle, you can flirt for a very long time. The fact remains. It was Schliemann who managed to arouse the broadest public interest in archeology and make this science, which was only developing then, extremely fashionable. This fashion does not pass to this day.

To a large extent, this was facilitated by his writing ability, vanity and a tendency to rampant lies. All together it became an excellent foundation for the myth, which became a kind of canon. After all, everyone knows that at the age of eight the pastor's little son saw Troy in the picture and made a promise to himself to find and excavate this legendary city. True, this is known from his autobiography. Domestic archaeologist Lev Klein long ago pointed out that the eight-year-old Schliemann could not dream of excavating cities simply for the reason that cities were not then excavated at all. Exception & ndash; Herculaneum and Pompeii, which were virtually simultaneously inundated with the products of the volcanic eruption. That the city can “ overgrow '' cultural layer, which should be excavated, then they had no idea.

Schliemann himself dreamed of another career in his youth, which is confirmed by the inscription he carved on the gate of his parental house: “ Heinrich Schliemann, sailor. '' Actually, with this he began his career. True, a sailor, or rather a cabin boy, he did not stay long – in 1841, his ship was wrecked off the coast of Holland. And in 1844, Schliemann was already an agent of the firm Schroeder & Co., which conducted extensive trade relations with Russia. And he has fundamentally different dreams. Only money, only wealth. Russia & ndash; the market is profitable. And young Schliemann went to St. Petersburg, becoming a representative of his firm in the capital of the Russian Empire. He will spend almost twenty years here. These years will be the turning points in his life. But not at once. Schliemann settled in St. Petersburg in 1846. In 1847, he wrote in a letter: “From early morning until late at night, I devote myself to inventing the means of acquiring the benefits of commerce in a decent manner.” So far there is no archeology, no dream of Troy. Business only. By the way, quite successful & ndash; very soon he will leave the Dutch company and start his own business. Five years later, the annual turnover of Schliemann's firm will amount to 15 million thalers, and the personal capital of Andrey Aristovich & ndash; Schliemann took this name for himself when he received Russian citizenship & ndash; will reach a million thalers.

It is in Russia that dreams of archeology will visit him, which can be traced again from the letters. True, there are still dreams of archeology as such & ndash; regardless of Troy.

& mdash; Historical Photos (@HistoryFoto) January 6, 2018

There were reasons for this. It was then that a kind of archaeological boom began in Russia. It is symbolic that the first specialized society & ndash; Archaeological and numismatic & ndash; was created in the year of Schliemann's arrival. They are interested in archeology at the very top & ndash; in 1850, the Chamberlain of the Imperial Court, and concurrently & ndash; Home Secretary, Count Lev Perovsky , pushes for the creation of the 'Commission for the management of archaeological prospecting in Russia'; and he himself becomes her boss. Moreover & ndash; Lev Alekseevich generously finances the first large-scale excavations of antiquities in North-Eastern Russia. In 1851, 2,500 rubles were allocated from the treasury, and in one season, 757 burial mounds in Vladimir and Suzdal districts were excavated with this money. In the next year, 1852, 2,318 burial mounds will be excavated. This generosity also has an explanation & ndash; At the head of the excavation was Count Aleksey Uvarov , the nephew of the Minister of Internal Affairs.

Of course, they talk about it. And, of course, Schliemann is aware of these conversations. Perhaps they would not have reached him, if there was more than one fact. In the same 1852, Schliemann marries Ekaterina Lyzhina. Her brother & ndash; historian, author of the monographs “ Stolbovsky Treaty and the Negotiations Prior to It '', “ Volynsky's Thought on the Establishment of a University in Russia '', “ Two Pamphlets of the Times of Anna Ioannovna '' and many other works. In addition, he is listed as the educator of the children of a member of the Imperial family, Prince Peter of Oldenburg.

Vanity can sometimes do a good job. Schliemann always wanted to write his name in history in capital letters. However, a career as a merchant, even a relatively successful one, is a poor helper here. No matter how hard you fight, whatever capital you make, they will still remember not your wealth, but how you disposed of it.

There is a widespread belief that Russian merchants of that time were exclusively tyrants, spending their money on Homeric revelry and hooligan antics. One of Schliemann's acquaintances, a certain Pronki Ponomarev, is often cited as an example: “ The inhabitants of St. He hired a carriage for May 1, ordered them to come to his house, sat in one, and the rest followed him empty & hellip; & raquo;

No doubt, it happened. But there were other things as well. The name of one of the Russian merchants was on the wave of talk about archeology in the second half of the 1850s. It was the Yelabuga head, a merchant of the second guild, Ivan Shishkin . By the way, the father of the famous Russian artist, also Ivan Shishkin. Just Ivan Shishkin Sr. in 1856 opened the grandiose Ananyinsky burial ground, which gave the name to the archaeological culture. It became clear that a merchant, if he spends money not on champagne, young ladies and cards, but on noble pursuits, may well write his name in history.

Having left Russia and moved to Paris, Schliemann, albeit in in general terms, but already imagined his future. It was supposed to be the same as that of this Russian merchant Ivan Shishkin. Only cooler, richer, bigger. In 1866, Schliemann enrolls at the university and pays for a course of lectures, where, among other things, the following subjects are present – & ndash; Greek Philosophy, Greek Literature, Egyptian Philology and Archeology. Hissarlik Hill, hiding the ruins of ancient Troy, he will see already in 1868.

Become the bride of the king and die in exile. The sinister fate of Maria Menshikova

On January 6, 1712, Maria Menshikova was born in St. Petersburg & ndash; daughter of the favorite Peter I “ Aleksashki '', the bride of the Emperor Peter II.

170 years later, in the summer, Vasily Surikov family went to the village of Pererva near Moscow. The weather was gray and rainy. In a cramped hut with low ceilings, the artist, his wife and two little daughters often sat at the table. Remembering his native Siberia, Surikov reflected on what kind of people lived in such uncomfortable houses … the image of Alexander Menshikov & ndash; the right hand of Peter the Great, his faithful companion. The extraordinary fate of this man has worried Surikov for many years: a bright rise and tragic fall, friendship with the tsar and death in exile & hellip;

Painting & laquo; Menshikov in Berezovo. Artist V.I. Surikov (1888), Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow. Photo: Public Domain

Painting 'Menshikov in Berezovo' became one of the most striking works of Surikov with a historical plot and historical personality. And besides, in the interior. Pavel Tretyakov immediately saw Shakespeare's drama in the canvas and bought it from the artist for 5000 rubles for his gallery.

Yesterday was everything, today – nothing

In adolescence, Menshikov traded in pies with hare (although historians doubt this, as well as his noble origin), at the age of 30 he became the first governor-general of St. Petersburg, later & ndash; prince of Izhora land, generalissimo. However, he did not manage to cope with his high position – serious abuses were revealed, including financial ones. However, after the death of Peter I, when his widow Catherine I ascended the throne, 'Aleksashka' actually ruled the country. In his hands were both the power and the army. With the accession to the throne of Peter II, Menshikov retained his influence; he dreamed of marrying his eldest daughter Maria. However, he underestimated the circle and power of ill-wishers. After 4 months, the ex-favorite of Peter the Great was removed from ruling the country, arrested and sent with his wife and three children, first to the Oranienburg fortress (now & ndash; Lipetsk region), then & ndash; in Siberian Berezov (now – Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug).

On the way to exile, Menshikov's wife died. The fate of Mary was also tragic. Preparing to work on the painting Menshikov in Berezovo, Surikov imagined it with a mournful expression on his face, thin, pale. As if anticipating imminent death. The artist painted it from his wife Elizabeth .

In a dark, uncomfortable hut with a tiny window, behind which the Siberian frost is raging, a father and his children are sitting: Maria (in the foreground in a black fur coat ), Alexander and Alexandra. There is not even the slightest hope for a brighter future. Although an icon lamp in the red corner with icons is lit & hellip;

Yesterday he had everything, now & ndash; nothing. Yes, there are three heirs nearby. But their fate is also unenviable. A stamp of despair on all faces. It is simply painful to look at Maria & ndash; the eldest of the children, she was all black from the grief that had befallen her family. Even though yesterday she was still the bride of Tsar Peter II & hellip;

Power loved more than his daughter

Educated, who knew several languages, sang and danced beautifully & hellip; Maria could be successful and happy. The influence of her father at the court of Peter I was enormous. Alexander Danilovich was in fact the second person in the state after the tsar. If not for the “ appetite '' played out at “ Aleksashka '' while “ eating ''. He had little power, money, influence. As soon as Masha was 9 years old, Menshikov decided by all means to find her the right groom. To & hellip; strengthen your position. What his daughter would feel at the same time, he did not care much. Peter's favorite, of course, loved Masha. But power & ndash; more.

The first candidate for the hand and heart of Mary was Peter Sapega , the son of the Hetman of Lithuania, who, in fact, became the initiator of the marriage. The benefit had to be mutual & ndash; both for the Sapegas and the Menshikovs.

The bride was staged when Masha was 10 years old. Despite her young age, she already knew how to make an impression: she was well educated and brought up. In addition, & ndash; beautiful. A few years later, the engagement of Sapega and Menshikova took place. At the solemn ceremony, the bride received from Catherine I land with peasants, as well as large sums of money & ndash; from the empress and father. Peter settled into a new status. And most importantly – Maria really liked him.

However, I liked Sapega and & hellip; Catherine I. In order to bring the young man closer to her, she decided to marry him to Sophia Skavronskaya's niece … Because of this, the wedding of Peter and Mary was postponed all the time. Menshikov quickly understood everything. And he demanded satisfaction from the empress.

Compensation for moral damage was an official paper signed by Catherine I: “ The Tsarevs and the administration are charged with the obligation to try to combine the marriage of the Grand Duke with Princess Menshikova. '' It was about the heir to the throne, Peter Alekseevich.

Death from consumption

Learning about the empress's intrigue and her father's deal, Maria lost consciousness. The girl stopped smiling, she was not interested in entertainment.

He cried, refused to look at Mary and young Peter. Mutual hostility remained with the bride and groom to the end. Now Peter became emperor, and the engagement took place … And there was no joy on the faces of the future spouses. And it couldn't be. Her heart told Maria that there would be nothing good in her life.

And so it happened. Soon, her father, Aleksashka, fell ill and was overthrown. And then … Berezov. A dark cold hut, where you can warm up a little only in a fur coat. Long months of gloomy existence. And death from consumption.

“Surikov did not create another woman’s face, such a painful charm, in his paintings,” one of the critics will write. & ndash; Without experiencing happiness herself and not giving it to another loved one, this mysterious beauty, sick, tormented by grief, dies. '' Never knowing that her former fiancé, Emperor Peter II, allowed the family to return from exile.

Patriarch Kirill congratulates Orthodox Christians on Christmas

Only love for God and people is capable, especially in the current difficult time of a pandemic, to strengthen people in various trials, drive out fear and give strength to do good deeds, says the Christmas message of the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The annual address of Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia, which will be read during the festive liturgy on January 7 in all churches of the Moscow Patriarchate, is published on the official website of the Russian Orthodox Church.

“ For many years the coming of the Savior was hoped for by people who, after the expulsion from paradise, lost their connection with their creator, who forgot how joyful it is to feel the presence of God every day, '' the message says. Feelings of safety & nbsp; and security, which gives the awareness that the Lord is near, is sorely lacking today, “when a destructive fad is still making its own adjustments to our lives,” and “uncertainty about the future” hellip; is alarming, '' the patriarch noted.

At the same time, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church emphasized, these & nbsp; circumstances made it possible to “ acutely feel the fragility of human existence '', to learn to “ value every new day as the greatest gift of God '', to understand how important it is to have the opportunity of regular personal communication with family and friends.

“ Only love for God and people are able to strengthen us in various trials, drive out fear from our hearts, give strength to do good deeds, '' says the message of the holy one.

Congratulating the flock with Merry Christmas, the patriarch wished everyone mental and physical health , joy and good spirits, God's help in good deeds.

Earlier, the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill & nbsp; called on the clergy to be patient with the restrictions imposed due to coronavirus for the sake of the opportunity to participate in worship.

We add that the priests advise & nbsp; on Christmas Eve and Christmas believers & nbsp; to attend a service, and spend the holiday weekend with the family. At the same time, it is better to plan the holidays, says the rector of the Church of St. George the Victorious in Nakhabino, priest Pavel Ostrovsky, since a state when a person is not busy with anything can give rise to despondency, laziness and irritability. & Nbsp;

Peskov ridiculed rumors about body armor on Putin during his appeal

Photo: kremlin.ru

Kremlin Speaker Dmitry Peskov laughed at the assumptions of social media users that Russian President Vladimir Putin was allegedly in bulletproof vest when he spoke in New Year's circulation. And he also answered the question of whether it was mounted.

“This is complete stupidity! The guys obviously overdid it in the New Year!”, – said Peskov. Then he wished everyone a Happy New Year, the Daily Storm reports.

Earlier it was reported that readers of the French Le Figaro admired the New Year's address of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the citizens of the Russian Federation. They especially drew attention to the phrase about “firm and consistent upholding of national interests, security of the country and citizens.” He stressed that in the outgoing year, Russia has firmly and consistently defended the interests of the country and the Russians in the security sphere. In addition, Putin expressed words of support to everyone who lost loved ones due to the pandemic.

Is it far from the gap: Putin and Biden came to negotiations with threats

Will the parties agree to a mutual aggravation

The closer the “week of negotiations” between Russia and the West, which starts on January 10 with the Russian-American meeting in Geneva, the sharper the tension from the expectation of its results … Intrigues were added by Vladimir Putin's statement that the response to the new tough US sanctions would be to sever relations with the United States. What does this mean?

Photo: kremlin.ru

The exit from the holiday period will be abrupt and, apparently, difficult for diplomats. Already on January 10, negotiations are scheduled between Russia and the United States at the level of representatives of the presidents of the states. Three days after that, a summit in the Russian-NATO format will take place, and the same week – a meeting under the auspices of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

To ascertain the seriousness of each other's intentions (empty meetings, sometimes leading only to a new round of exacerbation, have already taken place enough), Presidents Putin and Biden on the night of December 31, initiated by the Kremlin, held a telephone conversation. The sudden conversation, among other things, turned into a very violent exchange of threats. Biden once again spoke about the need to de-escalate the Russian-Ukrainian border and the possibility of introducing new sanctions against Moscow if it goes to provocations. Putin, in turn, assured that the next sanctions package would lead to a complete rupture of relations with Washington.

The American leader did not follow such rhetoric to publicly develop the topic of anti-Russian sanctions, although in a conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky on the night of January 3, he again promised all-round support to Kiev in case of “Kremlin aggression”.

But other representatives of the American establishment seized on the mention of the new restrictions with the same enthusiasm. Thus, a group of former American diplomats and ex-high-ranking officials turned to the head of the White House with a demand to submit a specific list of possible measures “in case of an attack on Ukraine.” The Biden administration, however, is in no hurry to announce such a list. Such restraint speaks, rather, not of its absence, but of the understanding that it will not look logical in the light of the upcoming negotiations.

In addition, despite the rhetoric of the President of the United States, one should not forget that various political forces sometimes speak through his mouth, including the “hawks” from among the congressmen and heads of American departments. Biden may personally disagree with their aggressive stance, but he probably has to voice it too. Firstly, so as not to lose face, and, secondly, to get domestic political concessions from opponents in their country.

In general, this scenario corresponds to what happened during the second presidential term of Barack Obama, in which the current leader was the second figure. Then the Republican congressmen actually promoted their plans for military assistance to Ukraine through the president, including the supply of lethal weapons to Kiev. Their trump card was Obama's medical reform, which they braked with all their might in the absence of the “complaisance” of the owner of the White House.

But if Obama at least had a very wide corridor of opportunities for sanctions and formidable promises (the conflict in Donbass was just flaring up), then Biden's options are almost exhausted. Therefore, rushing with new anti-Russian restrictions is not in his hands: following this path, he will not leave himself any opportunity for further pressure, and everything will return to normal. Only now Moscow and Washington will have to “raise” bilateral relations from an even lower point than now.

Russia, quite obviously, understands this as well, deliberately raising rates and threatening, in the event of tough sanctions, a break in relations. That is, demonstrating a readiness for an extreme diplomatic measure. Even in the conditions of hostilities in 2008, diplomatic relations between Moscow and Tbilisi were severed on the Georgian initiative, but de facto ties at various levels remained. In political terms, Switzerland became the mediator, and various economic embargoes, transport bans, etc. were canceled or weakened in one way or another.

The consequences of the incident with the Russian Su-24M shot down by Turkey over Syria in November 2015 were not too serious and lasting.

Between the Russian Federation and the United States, there are no hostilities at all (although, in fairness, we note that there are regular reports of bilateral provocations at sea and in the air). Moreover, both countries are key participants in resolving a number of global problems. Thus, the situation in Syria directly depends on the position of both Turkey, which borders on it, and the supporting US Kurds and Russia recognizing President Bashar Assad.

Interaction between Moscow and Washington is the key to stability on the Korean Peninsula, where former President Donald Trump has made impressive progress, and the Kremlin has traditionally enjoyed trust.

Russia's participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – in the so-called “The nuclear deal with Iran is also an important factor. Moreover, the prospect of a return to the treaty of the American side could ease tensions in the Middle East.

Finally, the same Ukraine. Although Moscow does not consider itself a party to the conflict, and Washington does not participate in the “Normandy” negotiation format, everyone understands that any conversation about de-escalation in Donbass is critically dependent on the positions of the Kremlin and the White House.

Of course, of course, an extensive list of common problems is not a guarantee that the parties will not agree to mutual aggravation. It is also obvious that in both capitals they want clarity as soon as possible. It is no coincidence that Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov announced the possibility of another telephone conversation between Putin and Biden immediately following the meeting in Geneva on January 10.

Political analysts give a bad forecast for 2022: it will get even worse

Relations between Russia, the US and China will worsen

The year is 2022. The forthcoming talks between Russia and the United States and NATO on January 10 and 12, on the one hand, give hope for an easing of political tensions in the world and a decrease in the risk of war. However, many foreign political scientists think otherwise, they predict that the situation in the world in the new year will become even more difficult.

Photo: pixabay .com

For example, Shigesaburo Okumura, editor-in-chief of the Japanese edition of Nikkei Asia, made the following foreign policy forecast: “We can confidently expect that in 2022 China will become even stronger after Xi Jinping remains chairman of the Chinese Communist Party. The United States, on the other hand, will face serious problems. On November 8, the mid-term elections will be held in America, in which the Democrats, led by Joe Biden, are likely to suffer a painful defeat. ”

According to Okumura, “when political leaders cannot solve internal problems in the country, they create the image of a ruthless and implacable external enemy.” “There is no doubt,” he said, “that Biden will decide to shift the responsibility for all the problems of the Americans onto Russia, accusing Vladimir Putin of authoritarianism and a threat to democracy. Also, do not forget about the risk of a new Cold War next year, this time between the United States and China. ”

One of the main topics for discussion in NATO member states is the tension on the Ukrainian border. The United States has repeatedly accused Russia of preparing an invasion of Ukraine, citing as evidence only the presence of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border.

But the British political magazine The New Statesman wrote: “Putin will not declare war on Ukraine, because he understands that the protracted war between Russia and the United States and NATO will weaken both sides and, moreover, destabilize the difficult political situation in Russia itself. ”

Therefore, the Russian president, the article says,“ will take steps to drive a wedge between Donbass and Ukraine, using the techniques of hybrid war. But a full-fledged invasion of Ukraine by Russia will never happen. “

” If we talk about problems for the whole world, the main threats in 2022 are the possible emergence of a vaccine-resistant strain of coronavirus; cyberattacks by other countries or professional hacker organizations, as well as serious climate changes that can cause food shortages or power problems in several regions at once, “The New Statesman predicted.

What coal mines do they want to close in Russia?

The President of Russia & nbsp; Vladimir Putin & nbsp; ordered to tighten responsibility for violations at mines, eliminate the risk of accidents at work, and also study the need to close coal mines with a high risk of accidents.

“ To take, if necessary (based on the results of discussion with trade unions and other interested organizations), measures providing for the gradual decommissioning of coal mines with a high risk of accidents (taking into account the analysis of the consequences of such a withdrawal for the economy and social sphere) '', – says in the document.

The head of state also ordered to suspend the work of coal mines for refusing to reduce the concentration of hazardous gases, and at mines that can not be closed yet, improve working conditions and increase the classification of workers in the coal industry.

The instructions were given following a meeting on the situation in the coal industry of Kuzbass, which the president held on December 2. The full list of instructions is published on the Kremlin website.

What measures & nbsp; will be taken to organize & nbsp; mine operations?

Following the meeting, & nbsp; Putin instructed by February 1, 2022:

  • exclude from the wages of miners payments that directly or indirectly depend on the output (the amount of coal mined);
  • to provide access to mines for trade union workers in order to monitor employers' compliance with labor laws and other regulatory legal acts, as well as establish responsibility for obstructing trade union control.

Until May 1, 2022 introduce the following measures:

  • completely prohibit the issuance of new permits for the mine method of coal mining;
  • Gradually close all coal mines with a high risk of accidents, while assessing the economic and social consequences;
  • develop and implement coal mining methods that eliminate the possibility of 'group accidents'. Including prohibiting miners from working at depths where it is impossible to ensure the safety of life and health;
  • improve the quality of training (including in the field of labor protection) for workers of mining enterprises directly involved in mining operations;
  • include in labor agreements provisions providing for additional liability of employers to compensate family members of miners who died as a result of an accident at work or in connection with an occupational disease;
  • increase the amount of compensation at the expense of the operating organization or the owner of a hazardous production facility payments in case of harm to life or health of citizens as a result of an accident.

In addition, by August 1 & nbsp; 2022, the President instructed the government to ensure the & nbsp; creation of financial mechanisms to guarantee the completion of work on the elimination, conservation of mine workings, boreholes and other structures related to the use of subsoil.

The Head of State also instructed to fulfill the following orders by January 1, 2023: & nbsp;

  • suspend the operation of mines for non-compliance with the requirements for degassing during the extraction of coal (oil shale);
  • to strengthen the responsibility of employers for violation of obligations in terms of labor protection of workers employed in work with harmful and (or) hazardous working conditions, including underground work;
  • specify the composition of administrative offenses related to non-compliance with industrial safety requirements ;
  • establish responsibility of officials (in the form of disqualification) for failure to issue or untimely issuance of an order to eliminate violations, as well as for failure to conduct or untimely conduct of inspections;
  • create an audit system for organizations operating hazardous production facilities;
  • bring the management of mines to administrative responsibility in the event of accidents or incidents resulting in death or injury to two or more persons (a fine in the amount of a multiple of the proceeds from coal mining ).

In addition, Putin instructed the government and authorities of Kuzbass to create a training center for miners and mine rescuers in Novokuznetsk by 2024. & nbsp;

How many dangerous mines are there in Russia? & nbsp ;

At the end of December 2021, in an interview with RBC, Deputy Prime Minister & nbsp; Alexander Novak & nbsp; said that & nbsp; the number of highly hazardous mines in Russia had decreased from 52 to 23. At the same time the share of safer open-pit coal mines increased. & nbsp; & nbsp;

Iranian President calls on Trump to be tried for assassination of General Soleimani

The Iranian President demanded that Trump be tried and threatened to avenge General Soleimani Major General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US missile strike near Tehran airport two years ago – on January 3, 2020

Ibrahim Raisi

Former United States President Donald Trump is set to stand trial for his role in the assassination of a high-ranking general, the commander of an elite al-Quds unit. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of Major General Qasem Soleimani two years ago, otherwise Iran will take revenge. This, as reported by Al Jazeera, at an event dedicated to the second anniversary of the death of the general, said Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi.

Raisi called Trump a “ top perpetrator and killer, '' and called for a “ fair trial, '' in which Trump, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and other American officials will be tried and punished.

As noted by Al Jazeera, the materials of many Iranian media were devoted to the second anniversary of the liquidation of Soleimani, a documentary about the general was released on state television, and posters depicting Suleimani were posted on the streets of the cities. The commemorative events are expected to continue every day until Friday, January 7th. On this day, the authorities plan to hold an exhibition showing Iranian missiles to commemorate the IRGC's missile strikes on US bases two years ago.

Tehran has sent a General Assembly to the President, IRNA reports. UN letter, which called for the adoption of a resolution condemning the assassination of Soleimani. It states that the immunity of those responsible for the murder of government officials has jeopardized the diplomatic peace.

Video

Major General Qasem Soleimani died in a missile strike on January 3, 2020, near the international airport in Baghdad. The deputy commander of the Iraqi People's Mobilization Force, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, was also killed. The target was a convoy of vehicles heading for the airport and carrying Soleimani and al-Muhandis.

On the same day, Trump admitted that it was an American special operation. Trump said Soleimani was involved in the deaths of large numbers of protesters in Iran, and “ killed or injured thousands of Americans '' for a long time and “ planned to kill more. '' In his opinion, in Iran, Suleimani was “hated and feared inside the country.” At the same time, Trump made a reservation that Iran would never “ admit it. '' “ It should have been removed many years ago '', & mdash; Trump concluded then.

Iran responded to the January 8 attack by firing at US bases in Iraq, while Washington said no servicemen were killed. On the same day, Iranian air defense systems shot down a Boeing 737-800 passenger plane taking off from Tehran to Kiev. The Iranian authorities initially denied involvement in the crash, but later admitted that the plane was shot down by mistake – the operator mistook Boeing for a cruise missile while awaiting a US response after shelling bases in Iraq. 176 people died.

On January 9, Trump announced that the assassination of Soleimani was connected with the preparation of an Iranian attack on one of the US embassies. “ We've caught up with a real monster. We have eliminated it. This should have happened a long time ago. We did this because he was preparing to blow up our embassy. We did this for other, fairly obvious reasons: our military died, '', & mdash; Trump said. He recalled the attack on the US embassy in Benghazi, Libya in 2012, when the US ambassador was killed. The Iranian attack, according to Trump, could also kill people or be taken hostages.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who represents Trump's political opponents, criticized the operation to destroy Soleimani, saying that it was carried out without consultation with Congress. According to her, the first priority of Washington is the safety of the Americans. “ We cannot put the lives of American military personnel, diplomats and others at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate acts, '' & mdash; Pelosi said then. The speaker assured that the rocket fire and the assassination of Soleimani could provoke a “ further escalation of violence. ''

The US has pledged to 'take action' in the event of a Russian invasion and declared their intention to provide Ukraine with assistance, including $ 20 million to strengthen the borders. At the end of December, the American State Adaptation urged citizens not to travel to Ukraine.

Moscow has repeatedly denied accusations of intending to invade Ukraine. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov called publications on this topic “ low-quality stuffing. '' Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that it is NATO that is making “ dangerous attempts to conquer Ukrainian territory. ''

The idea to “remove the Kremlin churchyard” turned out to be 70 years ago: it began with Stalin

New Year – Old Thoughts

One of the highest-ranking MPs, State Duma Deputy Speaker Boris Chernyshov decided to celebrate the arrival of 2022 with a proposal to remove Lenin's body from the mausoleum and remove it from Red Square all the remains of prominent figures of the USSR buried there. This “loud”, truly scandalous topic has already been discussed many times before. Moreover, the first projects of such a transfer date back to the communist period, to the middle of the last century.

The current “approach to the mausoleum theme” was carried out by Boris Chernyshov, a representative of the LDPR Duma faction, a party whose head Vladimir Zhirinovsky has repeatedly spoken out in past years with demands to remove Lenin's body from the mausoleum. Now a colleague of Vladimir Volfovich, in an interview with RIA Novosti, supported the idea of ​​eliminating the “Kremlin churchyard”. The news agency quoted him as saying that the placement of such a cemetery on Red Square is “blasphemous” and that the graves of these prominent figures of the Soviet period should be “not in the place where the ice rink and the stalls are deployed, where people celebrate the New Year, they walk, they come from the regions. ”

“ It has long been a long time since Red Square should be freed from this complex of burials, ”summed up Boris Chernyshov.

Meanwhile, the idea of ​​transferring the embalmed Vladimir Ilyich and his “neighbors” – buried near the mausoleum of “faithful Leninists” Dzerzhinsky, Kalinin, Zhdanov … – to another place arose much earlier, almost 70 years ago. And the impetus for its appearance was the death of Stalin. A day after the death of the Generalissimo, the following document was issued: “Resolution of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Council of Ministers of the USSR On the construction of the Pantheon – a monument to the eternal glory of the great people of the Soviet country.

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Council of Ministers of the USSR decide:

In order to perpetuate the memory of the great leaders Vladimir Ilyich Lenin and Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, as well as prominent figures of the Communist Party and the Soviet state, buried in Red Square near the Kremlin wall , to build a monumental building in Moscow – the Pantheon – a monument to the eternal glory of the great people of the Soviet country.

At the end of the construction of the Pantheon, move the sarcophagus with the body of V.I. Lenin and the sarcophagus with the body of I.V. Stalin into it, as well as the remains of prominent figures of the Communist Party and the Soviet state buried at the Kremlin wall, and open access to the Pantheon for the broad masses of working people “.

It is easy to understand the logic behind the adoption of such a document. This idea was then of a purely practical nature. The “Kremlin comrades” understood that the existing mausoleum was too small even for two sarcophagi. But in the future it will be necessary to bury those who “inherit” the Soviet “throne” after Joseph Vissarionovich. And what to do with their bodies? Where to post it with due respect? The territory of the prestigious “cemetery” behind the mausoleum is also small, and there will not be enough room for all the deceased “closest associates”.

The experience of other countries suggested a solution to the problem. For example, in Paris, in Rome, the Pantheons were set up for such purposes. So let us have one in Moscow.

In the wake of the published decree at the same time, in the spring of 1953, an open competition was announced for the best design of the grandiose tomb. Many responded, not only professional architects, but also ordinary citizens. It was from them that the most exotic projects came.

One of the contestants proposed to make the Pantheon in the form of a huge egg, set on the bottom and decorated outside in the style of Indian temples.

Another applicant piled up in his sketch is a whole forest of peaked towers …

Drawing teacher V. Zheleznyak, apparently having no talent for drawing, sent a verbal description of his idea: on a huge square platform “symbolizing the four sides of the world”, there is a pentahedral base (according to the number of parts of the world), on its main facade there are six semi-columns -pilasters, “symbolizing the 6 union republics that made up the USSR at the dawn of its existence”, the pilasters are crowned with a powerful plate with the inscription “Lenin – Stalin” and bas-reliefs of the leaders. Above the plinth rises a 60-sided case (“a symbol of the peoples of 60 nationalities that make up the USSR”). And instead of a dome, this building was supposed to be crowned with a huge globe, with the territory of the Soviet Union highlighted in bright red on it!

But the most creative option seems to be the version of a certain locksmith who sent a school notebook to his native regional committee “for transferring to the commission of the Central Committee of the CPSU”. The Pantheon invented by him looked like this: the gigantic figures of Lenin and Stalin, holding hands and invitingly pointing forward with their free hands (“to a bright future”!), And in the sides of these sculptures there are many recesses for urns with the ashes of “honored people of the Land of Soviets.” In the distant future, the clothes of the monumental Ilyich and Vissarionovich would have been completely covered with “patches” of memorial plates covering these niches.

A characteristic detail. In many other projects, the authors reserved a place for other bodies next to the sarcophagi of Lenin and Stalin. Apparently, our fellow citizens have already mastered the idea of ​​the obligatory mummification of every next deceased leader, so there should have been enough space for everyone!

I happened to hear that one of the “hard workers”, who decided to take part in the competition out of the best intentions, even wrote in the explanations for his drawing: they say, next to Vladimir Ilyich and Joseph Vissarionovich, I provided a site for a sarcophagus with the embalmed body of our dear leader and faithful Stalinist Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev.

For such a touching concern for the still well-being leader of the country, this “creator” seems to have even begun to “shake” the state security bodies.

While the time of the announced competition “at the top” was going on, they were deciding where the future Pantheon of leaders should be located. Several options were considered. One of the locations is in the area of ​​Sofiyskaya embankment, on the other bank of the Moskva River from the Kremlin. And here is the option supported by the Executive Committee of the Moscow City Council: in the area of ​​Lenin Hills, a few kilometers south of the high-rise of Moscow State University.

But all these plans and projects have died out. Within a year, all references to the construction of the Pantheon disappeared from newspapers and magazines. Apparently, the Kremlin decided not to rush to introduce such an innovation. And when, a couple of years later, at the XX Congress, the condemnation of the personality cult was thundered, and after that the removal of Stalin's mummy from the mausoleum took place, what kind of Pantheon of leaders can we talk about!

However, the Resolution of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the USSR Council of Ministers of March 6, 1953 formally remained in force for more than 20 years. It was “disavowed” only by the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR, having approved in December 1974 a decision according to which the Lenin's mausoleum and the necropolis near the Kremlin wall were taken under state protection as historical monuments.
