Express: Gazprom’s new statement caused panic in Europe

Siemens sees no connection between turbine maintenance and gas supplies.

Holding “Gazprom” announced that he was forced to suspend the operation of one of his turbines, namely – Siemens engine at station “Portovaya”. In this regard, pumping fuel through the gas pipeline “Nord Stream” will be reduced to 33 million cubic meters. m per day (20%) already on July 27.

The current supply volume is 67 million cubic meters. meters, and the reason for its decline, according to TASS with reference to the statement & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; , was the end of the time between overhauls before overhaul.

As a result, the company's statement led to an increase of 4.2% in fuel prices in Europe – such data was provided by the London Stock Exchange ICE.

A month ago, the Russian supplier announced the suspension of supplies via “Nord Stream” by 40%, explaining this by the fact that the Canadian division of the German Siemens, which repaired its units, did not return them to “Gazprom”, citing anti-Russian sanctions.

The decision was later changed and announced delivery of the German engine. The media reported that in Europe they were afraid of stopping fuel supplies via “SP” when the repair was completed.

Siemens itself explained that they were ready to extend the maintenance and increase its volume if the company was submitted request.

At the moment, according to the British Express, Europe fell into a panic after learning about the halving of the flow. Thus, gas quotes rose, reaching $1,880.

According to columnist Jacob Paul, what is happening with the supply has led to an emergency meeting in Brussels of the heads of energy ministries. The meeting will discuss the EU's plan to save gas, which the European Commission had previously feared.

Siemens said they see no relationship between supply cuts and repairs.

In a conversation with RIA Novosti, a representative of the company said that the turbine, the repair of which in Canada has already been completed, can be delivered to Russia “immediately”. For this “Gazprom” must submit customs documents for importation. Canada also announced its readiness to withdraw from the sanctions restriction the engines that Siemens Energy maintains in Montreal.

The company explained that the maintenance of turbines – a routine procedure and “any future maintenance work can be provided”, and the government of the country allowed them to be exported from Siemens Energy to Germany”.

Regarding the “stumbling turbine&# 8221;, then Germany handed over all documents for export to Russia last week.

The representative of the company said that the Russian company is aware of this, and only “Gazprom” can prepare customs documents as a client and continue the process of importing the engine to Russia.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that “Gazprom” fell by a quarter after the announcement of the refusal to pay dividends.

Macro level for microplastics. Experts on solving the problem in the Arctic

Plot The Arctic is a development area

The problem of microplastics in the Arctic was discussed at a conference at the Northern Federal University of Arkhangelsk. The event was organized by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation together with the Roscongress Foundation. The conference was held as part of Russia's chairmanship of the Arctic Council. 


Nikolai Doronin, Chairman of the Board of the Project Office for the Development of the Arctic, spoke about research on the problem of macroplastics. He also touched upon the topic of the educational project PORA «Plastic for business!». 

«The population of Western and Northern Europe — about 300 million people, while the population of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation and Siberia &mdash ; about 35 million. That is, plastic waste is mainly “exported”; to our northern seas» — the expert said.

According to Doronin, microplastics are fixed everywhere, but their movement along the food chain has been little studied. "Systemic measures are needed to correct the situation, and this requires constant monitoring and serious scientific research with common approaches to measuring indicators among the Arctic countries. It is difficult to isolate microplastics from organic suspension, moreover, it is difficult to study large areas and depths. Doronin emphasized that the measurement results are affected by the difference in sampling methods (units of measurement, depth and speed of trawling, even the size of the mesh).  “It is necessary to develop a unified protocol for studying the level of microplastics in sea water. It is also important to strengthen environmental education, because the problem of microplastics can only be solved at the macro level, — Doronin is sure.

Up to 40% of coastal plastic waste in the Arctic belongs to recyclable and conditionally recyclable polymer fractions, said  head of the Clean Arctic federal project Ruslan Gubaidullin.He also spoke about joint research with scientists from the Faculty of Biology of Moscow State University in the Barents and White Seas to identify sources of pollution. 47% of the items found on the Barents coast and in the so-called White Sea Funnel, the origin of which was identified, were produced in Russia, 23% — in Norway, and the remaining 30% — in other European countries.

The problem of waste in the Arctic zone is extremely urgent, as significant environmental damage has been accumulated over many decades. This was told by the Chairman of the Public Council under the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation Alexander Zakondyrin.


Over a hundred experts, heads of specialized scientific and expert organizations, as well as representatives of federal and regional departments took part in the event.

Are universities required to give additional points for the TRP badge upon admission?

Should universities award additional points for the TRP badge? And what to do if they do not accrue?

The ability to accrue additional points for the Unified State Examination — It is a right, not an obligation, of the university. At the same time, each educational institution chooses for what exactly and how many points it can award (no more than 10 in total). From 2022, additional points can be received not only for the gold, but also for the silver TRP badge — from 2 to 10 points.

The Ministry of Education and Science explains that only an award received no earlier than the last year of schooling for passing the standards in its age group can be taken into account. Among the mandatory tests — running short and long distances, pull-ups/push-ups and inclines. You can additionally pass the standards for swimming, cross-country skiing, jumping, throwing, shooting, self-defense without weapons or tourist knowledge on a hike.

«Each university had to independently establish the achievements for which points are awarded in its admission rules, — explains secretary of the selection committee of the Russian University of Transport (RUT MIIT) Maxim Begichev. — If the university has established that it gives points for the TRP badge — gold, silver or bronze, it should give. Therefore, you need to study the rules for entering a particular university and find out if points are given for the TRP badge. If the university has not established rules for awarding points for the TRP badge, then there is no way to force it.

Begichev also draws attention to the fact that in order to get additional points, you need to bring to the selection committee not the badge itself, but a certificate that this badge has been issued to you. Or an extract from the order of the Ministry of Sports on awarding the TRP badge.

Individual achievements can only be indicated until the deadline for accepting applications for admission.

The doctor assessed the risk of getting bubonic plague in Russia

In order to get infected with bubonic plague, you need to “try very hard”, infectious disease doctor Nikolai Malyshev told RIA Novosti.

According to the expert, the risk of getting sick with bubonic plague in Russia is not so big . The foci of the disease were recorded mainly on the southern border.

Malyshev added that measures have been taken in Russia to ensure that the plague does not spread. This is the fight against rodents, surveillance of territories, veterinary supervision and the sanitary and epidemiological service on guard.

The doctor added that it makes no sense for an ordinary resident to carry out specific prevention to protect against infection. He also noted that masks in this case will not help. According to Malyshev, people working in such zones are being vaccinated.

Earlier, a case of bubonic plague was identified in the urban district of Yinchuan in northwest China. Symptoms were found in a 45-year-old man.

The Rospotrebnadzor subsequently announced that measures were being taken to prevent the importation of plague from China.

Psychologists of Moscow State University have identified the main factors of educational motivation of the child

Moscow State University psychologists have found that self-regulation and working memory have a strong influence on the level of learning motivation in children. The results of the study are presented in the journal Acta Psychologica.

The material says that children show individual differences in learning motivation even before they go to school. The experts noted that this suggests that the individual characteristics of the child and the home environment also affect motivation.

Psychologists have noted that from the age of three, children experience success more vividly than younger children .

Head of the Department of Psychology of Education and Pedagogy of the Faculty of Psychology of Moscow State University Alexander Veraksa noted that very little is known about the work of motivation and self-regulation in childhood. According to him, this is due to difficulties in distinguishing between them.

“For example, a child's persistence in completing a task can be considered both as an indicator of motivation and as a behavioral manifestation of self-regulation. It is here that the pedagogical dilemma is born about how to help a child who quits halfway through: to train self-regulation skills or to keep his interest in any way? – Veraksa added.

The materials also say that interest and pleasure in participating in activities increases with the amount of visual and verbal information that a child is able to retain in working memory. The ability to restrain impulsive reactions is related to how passionate children are about the educational process.

Earlier, educational psychologist Evgenia Pyatashova gave several recommendations to parents on preparing children for kindergarten. Read more in the material.

“The most difficult target we have worked on is HIMARS rockets. These projectiles fly at very high altitudes. We at least detect [them at an altitude] up to 22 thousand meters. The difficulty lies in the fact that the range is short, the time for making a decision is minimal, — said the anti-aircraft gunner. The effective dispersion area (EPR, a characteristic showing the radar visibility of the target) of HIMARS shells, according to him, is only 0.1, which further complicates the task.

The Russian Embassy said about the “inflamed imagination” in the United States

U.S. politicians lose touch with reality when they call Russia a rogue state, the Russian embassy in the United States said. The comment was published on Telegram.

“Attempts to present our country as isolated are caused by the inflamed imagination of American figures who are increasingly losing touch with reality,”— said in the message.

The diplomatic mission called statements about the isolation of Russia “indiscriminate”; and noted that the Russian leadership is “actively involved in international affairs.”

Earlier, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that Russia has become a pariah in the international arena and its authorities understand the degree of isolation . He also pointed out that during the G20 Foreign Ministers Summit in mid-July, the ministers demonstrated a consensus on the need to condemn Russia for its actions in Ukraine and provoking a food crisis in the world.

In response to a journalist's remark about the visits of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to Africa, and President Vladimir Putin to Iran, Price said the US had little concern for the location of Russian representatives. According to him, more importantly, Russia heard from the G20 countries and the UN a signal about the losses that its leadership incurs due to hostilities in Ukraine.

Foreign Ministry urged not to rule out “seemingly improbable scenarios” with Schengen

Department Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Volynkin allowed the termination of the issuance of Schengen visas to Russians The department does not exclude the possibility that the Russians will stop issuing Schengen visas. The ministry also noted the “degradation” of consular relations urged not to rule out “seemingly improbable scenarios” with Schengen” />

The Russian Foreign Ministry is monitoring the statements and actions of Europe regarding the issuance of Schengen visas to Russians and does not exclude the possibility of its termination, said Ivan, director of the consular department, in an interview with TASS Volynkin.

He pointed out that the ministry records “calls coming from Europe” that come from “odious politicians or public figures”; Russophobes". But besides the statements, there are also specific actions: for example, there was a “virtually complete suspension of the issuance of visas to Russian citizens in the consular offices of Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Estonia located in Russia,” the diplomat noted.

“In in the event of a radical degradation of consular ties with other countries— members of the Schengen Agreement, even seemingly improbable scenarios cannot be ruled out,— warned Volynkin.

After the start of the special operation in Ukraine, several countries at once issued a call to stop issuing visas to Russian citizens. Thus, the Belgian Minister for Refugees, Sammy Mahdi, said that the European Union should consider stopping the issuance of all types of visas to Russian citizens, since “at the moment, Russians are not welcome here.” Later, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki made a similar statement.

Some states immediately moved from calls to action: they suspended the issuance of visas to Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and the Czech Republic. The latter decided to temporarily stop issuing residence permits, and in June Prague extended the restrictions until 2023. In July, the idea of ​​suspending the issuance of visas was supported by the Finnish Parliament.

At the same time, after the removal of COVID travel restrictions from both Europe and Russia, Russians have an increased demand for visas to the EU. In mid-July, one and a half month queues arose at the visa centers for the issuance of entry documents. At the same time, experts interviewed by RBC noted that the demand was superimposed on the lack of employees of visa centers.

NYT learns of heightened US fears over China and Taiwan

The US administration is secretly trying to dissuade the Speaker of the House of Representatives from visiting Taiwan: the White House is concerned about China's likely plans to intercept her plane. Beijing said they were “seriously preparing” for this visit

Views of Taiwan

The US authorities are increasingly concerned about China's actions and statements regarding Taiwan, in recent days this situation has escalated due to the intention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to visit the island, the White House is secretly trying to dissuade her from the trip. This was reported by The New York Times, citing sources.

Pelosi's visit to Taiwan raises the risk of conflict, as an “important political meeting” will be held in the coming weeks with the participation of Chinese President Xi Jinping and other leaders of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), unnamed US officials believe. The New York Times does not specify which meeting it is, but the 20th CCP Congress is scheduled for the second half of this year.

According to the newspaper, Pelosi will most likely fly to Taiwan on a US military plane, which is typical for such visits. A number of analysts believe that China could send a plane to escort the American aircraft and prevent it from landing, The New York Times points out. The move is worrisome and would be seen as a major escalation, according to U.S. officials interviewed by the newspaper, but is still considered unlikely.

According to Reuters, Pelosi intends to visit Taiwan this week, after her visit to Japan. The House Speaker herself declined to publicly comment on her plans, saying it was important to “show your support for Taiwan.” In the case of a visit to the island, Pelosi will be the first speaker of the US House of Congress to visit Taiwan in 25 years, since 1997.

US President Joe Biden noted that the military does not consider this initiative a good one. The White House is concerned about the possibility of China declaring a no-fly zone over Taiwan to disrupt Pelosi's visit, an unnamed US official told CNN. He added that Beijing could send fighter jets to the island, which would lead to a response from Taipei and Washington, but declined to specify what the US response would be.

Taiwan declared secession from China in 1949, during the civil war. Beijing does not recognize the independence of the island and considers it its province. The administrative status of the region has not been settled. Washington does not have diplomatic relations with the Taiwan authorities, but since 1979 a law has been in force according to which the United States can supply weapons to the region to protect it. At the same time, Washington declares that it adheres to the “one China” policy.

Chinese authorities privately issued a warning to the United States about the consequences of Pelosi's visit to the island, according to the Financial Times, containing much more serious threats than previously. The body of the letter allowed for a military response, two people familiar with the matter told the newspaper.

China has become “more aggressive” over the past few years; and to intercept US military aircraft more often, Beijing is also conducting unsafe air maneuvers near American allies, US military commander Mark Milley said at the end of July.

USA. In a number of cases, they were not made public. In particular, in June, an American Special Forces C-130 transport aircraft had “something like a skirmish”; with Chinese aircraft. However, the Pentagon has not officially acknowledged this incident, the TV channel notes.

The Foreign Ministry announced the “unconstructive” position of Israel on Ukraine

Tel Aviv has taken an incorrect position in relation to Russia's actions in Ukraine, an official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry believes. According to her, the position in support of the exclusively Kyiv regime “raised questions” in Moscow .jpg” alt=”The Foreign Ministry announced Israel's “unconstructive” position on Ukraine” />

Israel's anti-Russian position on the situation around Ukraine is not constructive and biased, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on the Soloviev channel Live».

“You said our relationship has become more complicated. No, they didn't get more complicated <…> It did not happen on its own, and certainly not with the involvement of our side. Unfortunately, in recent months we have heard absolutely non-constructive and, most importantly, biased rhetoric from Tel Aviv at the level of statements, — she said.

According to Zakharova, the country's leadership allowed itself “anti-Russian assessments” situations. “The position was framed exclusively in the pro-Ukrainian direction, and not in terms of the Ukrainian people, but in the direction of supporting only and exclusively the Kyiv regime, and it was absolutely in tune with this strange and wild voice of the West. It really raised questions, — said the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, Israel condemned Moscow's actions, and then-Foreign Minister Yair Lapid called them “an attack and a serious violation of international order.” On July 1, he took over as head of the Israeli government, after the resignation of Naftali Bennett and the self-dissolution of parliament. At the same time, the country did not join the sanctions against Russia, although Lapid said that Israel refuses to be a “bypass road” to bypass.

Russia's Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar criticized the military operation in March. Shortly after the outbreak of hostilities, he called on all religious figures to use their influence to “stop the madness” that is taking place on the territory of Ukraine.

Moscow calls the goal of the special operation to protect the population of Donbass from the actions of Kyiv. President Vladimir Putin has also said that Russia is seeking to “denazify” and “demilitarization” Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky suggested in mid-March that Jerusalem could be a potential venue for talks with Putin. He also offered then-Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to mediate negotiations with Moscow, Israeli radio station REKA reported, citing sources in Israel and Ukraine. Bennett met with Putin in Moscow in early March and also called him and Zelensky.

In early July, the Israel Hayom (Israel Today) newspaper reported, citing a member of the Lapid delegation with which the new prime minister went to Paris, that Israel was no longer involved in resolving the conflict with Ukraine.

On July 21, the Russian Ministry of Justice asked to liquidate the representative office in the country of the Jewish agency Sokhnut, which is engaged in repatriation to Israel and assistance to repatriates. According to a Jerusalem Post source, the authorities suspected the organization of illegally collecting information about Russian citizens. According to the newspaper, «Dry» received a demand to cease activities amid growing tensions in relations between the two countries due to Israel's position in relation to the Russian special operation in Ukraine, its support for Kyiv and President Zelensky. Israeli Prime Minister warned that the closure of “Sohnut” will have a negative impact on the relationship between the two countries.

Later, the Jerusalem Post also reported that the agency secretly began to prepare for relocation to Israel, since the management of the “Sohnut” found it impossible to resolve the legal status in this situation.

The Kremlin said that the claims against “Dry” are in the legal field. “This is due to compliance with Russian law. For reasons, please contact the Ministry of Justice, which made this decision,»,— Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Lapid instructed the Foreign Ministry to develop policy measures in the event of the liquidation of the Jewish agency in Russia, Israel Hayom reported.

According to Popp, the author of the story “is trying in some way to justify the offensive of the Nazis.” He draws such a conclusion from the episode in which the Volga Germans argue whether they could “agree” with the army of the Third Reich, and the question “maybe Stalin and the Red Army did wrong that they ordered everyone to leave their homes and leave?” compared the heads of the USSR and fascist Germany. We are talking about the phrase: “Just like Hitler, Stalin had unlimited power.”

“Juggling history, slandering the leaders and the history of our country is clearly not conducive to a positive educational process. An attempt to instill in the reader a disrespectful attitude towards the authorities, not only through Comrade Stalin, but also through local leaders, suggests the destructive influence of this “work”. on the minds of the younger generation»,— the expert's opinion says.

He also adds that the book does not contain “a single story with a positive opinion about the representatives of the Soviet elite.” In addition, Kolpakova, according to the expert, promotes emigration— and this refutes the main positions of “modern Russia on saving the people of Russia and developing human potential.” When asked who requested an examination of the work, the Ural State Pedagogical University did not answer the publication.

Kolpakova told the EAN agency that CompassGuide (the publishing house that publishes Wormwood Tree) decided to order an alternative examination of the work. “Since Ivan Popp’s expertise has damaged both my reputation and the publishing house, the book will be given to independent experts. It is planned to attract professors in the field of history, linguistics and philology, — she said.

Medvedev announced a “cocktail of rudeness” from the European Union and the imminent winter

Medvedev is sure that the EU did not manage to “sit on three chairs”, the risk of a gas shortage caused “severe diarrhea” after the “yellow-Blakyt hysteria”. In his opinion, Europe intends to increase arms supplies to Ukraine, but “the cold will come soon”

Dmitry Medvedev in European countries of developed industry and the desire of Europeans to live in houses with heating, former Russian President, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev wrote on Telegram.

“The whole current policy of the Europeans in the Russian direction— disgusting cocktail of arrogant rudeness, teenage infantilism and primitive stupidity,— he thinks.

The states of Europe only later remembered the “unreal” the cost of gas, oil and coal from alternative suppliers, and therefore “realized” and realized the difficulty of “sitting on three chairs,” Medvedev continued. In his opinion, “it didn’t work out beautifully”, a number of industries in the European Union risk stopping work, this caused panic among Europeans.

through the frosty window to the fading industries. True, European wise men offer to treat diarrhea with a proven medicine: increasing the supply of weapons to the Kyiv regime and the war to a victorious end. Oh well. The cold will come soon…»— wrote Medvedev.

The day before, July 25, Gazprom announced the third reduction in gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream this summer. The volume of gas supplies decreased initially from 167 million to 100 million cubic meters. m of gas per day, and then another third. From July 27, gas pumping will drop to 33 million cubic meters. m— 20% of the design capacity of the gas pipeline.

June declines in Gazprom explained by the lack of a turbine, which was being repaired in Canada. Its removal from there was hampered by the conditions of the sanctions imposed against Russia. The decrease in pumping in July will occur due to the decommissioning of another turbine due to “the end of the period between overhauls before overhaul (in accordance with the instructions of Rostekhnadzor and taking into account the technical condition of the engine)”.

The German authorities and the management of Siemens Energy did not agree with the explanations of Gazprom, seeing political motives rather than technical conditions in the reasons for the reduction in supplies (Moscow rejected these accusations). German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck stressed at the end of July that there were no technical reasons that could force the Russian side to reduce supplies. At the same time, he noted that the decision of Gazprom was not unexpected, but caused irritation. “They didn't even have the guts to say, 'We're in an economic war,'” Khabek pointed out.

Official Berlin fears that Russia may completely stop gas supplies via Nord Stream, even a shortage of this fuel threatens to stop market processes in Germany, Habek warned. He clarified: “We are talking about people who will lose their jobs, and regions that will lose entire industrial complexes.”

The EU countries are discussing measures to save gas consumption. According to DPA, the corresponding plan of the European Commission was agreed upon on the night of July 26. It provides for a voluntary reduction in gas consumption by 15% within eight months— from August 1 to March 31, 2023.

Le Monde announced the exhaustion of the EU sanctions against Russia

Europe has reached the limit on sanctions, the seventh package was an adjustment and clarification of earlier decisions, an unnamed diplomat said. According to him, individual countries want to increase sanctions, but the discussion will lead to disagreements jpg” alt=”Le Monde announced the exhaustion of the EU's sanctions against Russia” />

The last, seventh package of EU sanctions against Russia is mainly a correction of the already introduced restrictions and an increase in their effectiveness, European countries are close to exhaustion opportunities in the sanctions policy, writes Le Monde, citing a source in diplomatic circles.

“We've come to the end of what we could do,” — said the diplomat.

According to him, the countries— EU members do not intend to voluntarily deprive themselves of Russian gas supplies. Despite the fact that Poland and the Baltic countries are in favor of such a step, they do not want to bring it up for discussion, since then disagreements within the EU would become obvious, an unnamed interlocutor of the publication said.

We are talking about the sanctions package that the European Union adopted in the middle of last week— 21 July. It provided for a ban on “direct and indirect imports, purchases or transfers of gold, which is the most significant Russian export after energy resources”, the entry of Russian-flagged ships into sea locks (for example, in Rotterdam and Amsterdam), and also introduced restrictive measures against 48 people. Among them: Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, actors Vladimir Mashkov and Sergei Bezrukov, Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov.

After that, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the connection between the sanctions and the increase in prices for hydrocarbons and agro-industrial products. Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova considered that “the consequences of the EU sanctions exercises” will be detrimental to a number of segments of the global economy and security.

The European Union, however, is confident in the effectiveness of sanctions, and this will become apparent in the medium and long term, said the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell. The European Commission emphasized that international sanctions undermine the Russian economy, and the country's default is only a “matter of time”.

At the same time, both in Russia and in the West, statements have been made more than once about the reached limit of possibilities for sanctions against official Moscow. In particular, Borrell expressed this opinion in mid-March. He said: “With regard to financial sanctions, of course, you can always go further, but we have already reached the limits of what we can do. We did everything we could.”

In early June, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin announced that “the arsenal of means to curb the development of our country” had been exhausted. He claimed this after the adoption of the sixth package of sanctions against Russia by the European Union, in which the oil embargo was approved.

Russia launched a military special operation in Ukraine more than five months ago, on the night of February 24th. President Vladimir Putin justified his decision by the desire to “restore statehood” LNR and DNR, to protect the inhabitants of Donbass from “genocide” and carry out demilitarization and “denazification” a neighboring state.

Ukraine responded by imposing martial law, declaring a general mobilization and breaking off diplomatic relations with Russia. Representatives of 141 out of 193 countries in the UN General Assembly condemned the actions of the Russian authorities, demanded a ceasefire and withdrawal of troops.

Security Council experts announced NATO’s efforts to create a danger to Russia

The Scientific Council of the Security Council discussed the results of the June NATO summit in Madrid and concluded that the threats from the alliance are increasing

NATO's Madrid summit “once again demonstrated that the North Atlantic Alliance remains a mechanism for imposing US interests on the collective West” , according to a release following a meeting of the scientific council under the Russian Security Council. The council's experts concluded that NATO is stepping up its efforts to create “imminent military threats” Russia.

“Contrary to the statements of the NATO leadership, the activities of the alliance do not contribute to ensuring international stability and strengthening the security of its member states”, — the message says.

The meeting at the level of heads of state and government of NATO countries was held from 28 to 30 June in Madrid. The participants in the summit should have adopted a new strategic concept with the goals and fundamental tasks of NATO in the field of security, as well as the challenges and opportunities of the alliance. In it, Russia was not recognized as a partner of the organization, but as a threat. “As the world changes, so does NATO. And the world has become more dangerous. We will declare that Russia is no longer a partner, but a threat to our security, peace and stability. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said. Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel Albarez compared the significance of this summit with the Yalta Conference.

Following the summit, NATO countries agreed to increase the size of the alliance's rapid reaction force by almost eight times— up to 300 thousand people. In addition, Sweden and Finland were officially invited to join NATO.

The decisions of the NATO Madrid summit were recorded in a declaration. It states that the heads of state of the alliance met in Madrid at a time when “the war returned to the European continent”, so the leaders reaffirmed their commitment to the unity and basic principles of the alliance, in particular, “the commitment to the Washington Treaty, including Article 5, remains ironclad.” (this article says that an attack on one of the members of the alliance is an attack on all).



In the USA, they were afraid of possible competitors of HIMARS in Ukraine

MLRS, which are in service with the armies of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and North Korea, could help the Russian military in the fight against HIMARS installations previously sent from the United States to Ukraine. Possible competitors to US-made multiple launch rocket systems are discussed in an article published in Military Watch magazine.

The authors of the material mentioned the Chinese PHL-16 and KN-25 MLRS, which is produced by North Korea. The declared range of fire of both installations exceeds those of the American MLRS – 500 and 400 km, respectively, and this allegedly will allow “to shoot” HIMARS, being on the territory of the Russian Federation and not crossing the Ukrainian border, the journalists of the publication shared their point of view.

According to one of the experts, Beijing is unlikely to agree to the sale of its systems because of the official position of neutrality, unlike Pyongyang, which openly supported the position of the Russian Federation in the United Nations. North Korean multiple launch rocket systems will be able to give reason for the American military command to be afraid of an increase in losses of equipment transferred to the Ukrainian side, the observer concluded.
