Desire tram. When public transport in Russia will become comfortable

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 37. With all the consequences. What is pouring from the tap 14/09/2022

In Orel, the average age of trams is 36 years; in Barnaul — 34 years… A whole era has changed, computers, the Internet and mobile phones have appeared, and these fragments of the past still go on the route.

At the same time, there are cities in Russia where transport is younger and  ; more cheerful. For example, in Kazan, the tram is on average 5.5 years, in Rostov-on-Don — 5.7 & nbsp; years. When will all Russians switch to modern and comfortable public transport?

What we drive?

Now in & nbsp; Russia 850 & nbsp; thousand. buses, their average age — 16.5 & nbsp; years. More passengers are transported by 8 & nbsp; thousand. trams and 9 thousand trolleybuses, the fleet of which, according to the Ministry of Transport, is worn out by 80%. Of course, things are different in different regions. According to the  rating of VEB.RF and Simetra Competence Center, the highest quality public transport (Moscow and St. Petersburg did not participate in the study) in Ekaterinburg, Perm and Kazan. Three outsiders — Astrakhan, Vladikavkaz and Penza.

At the same time, against the background of the poor quality of buses and trams, the fare in them is steadily increasing. In most cities and towns, this happened in January of this year. The most “expensive” Murmansk, Yakutsk, Kazan, Petrozavodsk and Samara became cities from the point of view of travel (not counting Moscow and St. Petersburg). Here, for the ticket must be paid from 30 to 35 rub.

What should be the fare for  travel?

«Public transport has always been “poor grandmother”, — says HSE Professor Mikhail Blinkin.     In the late 1980s, city dwellers began to change to personal cars, and later this trend intensified. And  the authorities decided that the people would go where they needed by themselves in their cars, buses and trams were not needed. As a last resort, you can use private minibuses. As a result, the industry has been chronically underfunded. In addition, the social aspect, expressed in low fares, had a negative impact. The average price of “ticket” in Russia 20–25 rub. In countries of similar development level it costs about $1.4  (about 85 & nbsp; rubles). The combination of “abandonment” from the side of the authorities and low tariffs and“planted” public transport on a starvation ration».

A big new bus now costs about 10 million rubles, a trolleybus — 20 million, tram car — 30–40 million Where can cities get that kind of money?

«For transport companies to survive, the minimum fare should be 50 rubles for a trip — sure member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, chairman of the All-Russian Association of Passengers Ilya Zotov. — But this level will cause protests from the population. Therefore, it is impossible to do without state funding. For example, it is possible to redirect part of the funds from the road fund, because improving the quality of public transport services will lead, among other things, to reducing the load on the road network».

"Trolleybus should be saved!"

  Recently, the scale of the problems has become understood in government, — Blinkin says. — Federal programs have been launched, national projects are involved. We began to produce modern low-floor buses, electric buses and trams. The trolleybus stands a little apart. The use of this type of urban transport is declining all over the world, and it seems that we have no prospects for its development either. But in in no case should you cut off the contact network where it is!»

By the end of last year, according to state programs, the cities received 1,131 new buses and trams, but, according to Zotov, this is not enough. “The rolling stock fleet is so worn out that the supply of one or two (and even a dozen) buses to the city does not solve the problem, & nbsp; & mdash; says the expert. — More serious investments are needed».

Federal money went to public transport from 2020  Only under the state program for the modernization of public transport until the end of 2024. 203 billion rubles will be spent. National project “Safe and high-quality roads” will add another 33 & nbsp; billion. And this year, for the first time, money from FNB — 53 & nbsp; billion rubles.

In total, according to the transport strategy of the Ministry of Transport, by 2035  the total investment in public transport should amount to 10 trillion rubles. If the program is not cut to save money, the old rusty grooves will finally leave our cities and give way to new buses.

Employee training. SberUniversity celebrated its 10th anniversary

September 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of SberUniversity — an educational center that allows thousands of professionals to develop the competencies of the future and successfully shape their careers. As part of the anniversary events, an open day was held for clients and partners, to which entrepreneurs and managers of leading Russian companies were invited to the campus.

President, Chairman of the Board of Sberbank German Grefopened the business program, spoke about leadership in the modern world, motivation and team development, and shared the results of SberUniversity's work over the first ten years of its existence.

During this time, more than one million people have used the educational platform. Every year, more than 33,000 Sber employees study in full-time programs and more than 100,000 — online. More than 500 educational solutions from SberUniversity are available to employees, aimed at developing digital, soft and cognitive skills.

Based on market demands, educational programs are successfully developed on the platform, annually updated by 30-40%. Today, employees of more than 2,000 partner companies have already completed or are undergoing training. More than 40 programs and courses on leadership, digital transformation and management are available to managers and entrepreneurs. Over the past three years, the number of students enrolled in these programs has tripled.

340 teachers and experts speak at SberUniversity programs. The team has published more than 22 of its own books and analytical publications, and has also received more than 20 Russian and international awards, which confirm the status of one of the best educational centers in the country.

“I congratulate our team on the 10th anniversary of Sber University . Our university emerged as an urgent need, as an important tool for the transformation of the company. When we started our journey in terms of transforming a bank into a technology company, we saw that we radically lack knowledge in these matters, we lack a common platform for obtaining them, — German Gref said. 

He noted that over a million people have already studied at Sber University in 10 years — unique programs were created in terms of scale and volume, and before that no one had ever done such programs. 

«We always receive high appraisal of university programs not only from our employees, but also from partners. And I can’t imagine the transformation of such large companies as Sber without such large-scale educational projects as  SberUniversity», — Gref emphasized.

Cosmics and Phantoms. Ukrainian astronomers saw clusters of UFOs in the sky

We are already accustomed to the           are accustomed to the fact that the politicians           are accustomed to imitating its trends. Now, it seems that scientists have decided to go along the same path. In any case, those who observe the sky — astronomers.

The Kyiv Main Astronomical Observatory, in collaboration with the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, has published a preprint stating that they have spotted an unusually large concentration of UFOs over the city. "We see them everywhere — write Ukrainian astronomers. — We observe a significant number of objects whose nature is unclear».

Following the example of the Pentagon

Those who don follow the subject of UFOs may be surprised: what does the West and its "influences" have to do with it? But  the whole point is that in recent years the American military department has regularly published information about  unidentified phenomena” that the US Navy pilots see in the sky. It has become sort of a trend. It can be said that the Pentagon neither with and this and this"fell in love" UFO.

In 2017, the US Department of Defense published a video in which pilots of two F/A-18 fighters recorded an unknown object the size of a private jet. In 2020, three UFO videos were recognized as authentic. All of them were filmed in previous years. One of the UFOs was in the shape of a "top that moved against the wind", the other — in the form of a sphere enclosed in a cube".

Later, the Pentagon made public 8 more incidents that occurred from June 2013 to February 2019 in the sky over the Atlantic Ocean. For example, the pilot of the carrier-based attack aircraft “Super Hornet” saw in the air “an unknown aircraft about the size of” a silver suitcase. At that moment, not a single aircraft was allowed into the airspace, which caused bewilderment, moreover, the object was hardly tracked on radars. Another pilot collided with two UFOs, and the military again failed to identify these objects and understand who controls them. All this is recorded in reports.

Two years ago, the Pentagon even established a Task Force on Unidentified Air Phenomena (they don't use the term “UFO” (UFO), but prefer the abbreviation UAP, which means “Unidentified Air Phenomena”). And in the summer of 2021, they published a report describing meetings with UAP over the last 17 years. It mentions 144 episodes, and only one shows a rational explanation (the mysterious object turned out to be a deflating balloon), and in   11 cases, American pilots were close to collision with "flying saucers".

At the same time, the published 144 incidents were only the tip of the iceberg, experts considered. Guessing what caused the Pentagon's interest in this topic, which has always been the lot of freaks and poorly educated people, they agreed in the opinion that everyone wins in this case: the military after such “revelations” can count on an increase in budget funding (the sky must be protected           must  be sure     of Russians), politicians portray violent activity and distract the population from internal problems, and the public gets sensational and… is really distracted from problems.

“Idiocy is amazing”

Now, it seems, Ukrainian scientists are also counting on their “winning”, having decided to show that they, too, do not slurp bast shoes. Astronomers of the Kyiv Observatory, together with the National Academy of Sciences, published a preprint (a version of a research article posted in the open access before publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal), in which they admit that they see in the sky above the capital Nezalezhnaya “a significant number of objects, whose nature is unclear.

The mood of Ukrainian researchers of “unidentified air phenomena” is found from the first same paragraphs of the article. “NASA commissioned a research team to study unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), sightings of events that, from a scientific point of view, cannot be identified as known natural phenomena, —    they write. — The Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine also conducts an independent study of UAP. We used two meteor stations for UAP observations. The observations were made with color video cameras in the daytime sky. We developed a special surveillance technique to detect and characterize UAPs».

Ukrainian astronomers describe two types of UFOs. The first one they call “cosmics” (“luminous objects, brighter than the background of the sky”) and emphasize that they give them the names of birds — swifts, falcons and eagles. Second — “phantoms”. These are dark objects that do not have high contrast. They absorb radiation falling on them. The main characteristic of the UFOs observed by the people of Kiev is their extremely high speed. They fly so fast that they are very difficult to photograph, and can only be detected with the help of special equipment: it takes four tenths of a second to record an event.

“Flights of single, group and   said in the  article. — Observations from two points with two synchronized cameras made it possible to detect a variable object at an altitude of 1170 km. It blinks for one hundredth of a second with an average frequency of 20Hz».

The article does not make any assumptions about the nature of these objects, it only talks about their presence and incredible characteristics. “We see them everywhere”, — Kyiv scientists report enthusiastically.

About "amazing discovery" Ukrainian astronomers, apparently determined to keep up with their politicians, wrote the American edition of the New York Post. The article provoked a strong reaction from his readers. Someone reminded us that fighting was going on in Ukraine, so unidentified flying objects in the sky should not should be surprised. Someone has suggested that President Biden supplies this country in abundance not only with arms and money, but and consciousness-expanding psychoactive substances.

A  one reader managed with a laconic comment: “The idiocy is amazing.”

The secret of the electrician Ilyin. How the Soviet Plyushkin accumulated masterpieces worth millions

At the dawn of Ukraine's independence, a sensational discovery was made in one of the nondescript houses in the city of Kirovograd, which gave rise to a lot of questions, many of which remain unanswered. In the home of a lonely electricianAlexander Ilyinafter his death, they discovered a priceless collection of paintings, old books, church utensils and antiques. It contained tens of thousands of unique items, the total cost of which, according to various estimates, ranged from hundreds of millions to billions of dollars. At the same time, the owner of one of the largest private collections in the post-Soviet space and in Europe lived very modestly. Mysteries about him and his unique collection still haunt the minds of researchers.

Dusty Treasures

In the autumn of 1993, a visitor to a second-hand bookstore in Kirovograd saw a rare book on the shelf, the appearance of which on sale alarmed him. It belonged to his friend Alexander Ilyin, who recently died at the age of 72. He worked as a simple electrician, but was passionate about collecting. In order to prevent the illegal sale of cultural property, a vigilant citizen sounded the alarm. A commission was created to seize valuable items from the home of the deceased. He did not start a family and did not leave a will. But when experts arrived at Ilyin's home, the nephews of the deceased blocked their path. They did not want to give anything away, claiming all the uncle's property. I had to call for help from the security forces, who became participants in an incredible discovery.

For the export of valuables, several boxes were prepared, in which they expected to take everything at once. At first glance, the dwelling did not look like a storehouse of wealth at all — it was unkempt and matched the appearance of its owner. Alexander Ilyin wore old clothes, did not have part of his teeth, and used a tattered shopping bag. At the same time, such asceticism contrasted sharply with the other side of his life. Antique silver spoons lay next to a rusty bowl in the kitchen, an icon in a precious metal frame hung over an unwashed stove, antique cabinets with rare books stood against the background of shabby walls. And when they looked into the second house on the electrician's site, they gasped in surprise. Inside, everything was literally littered with dusty rarities from different eras, including paintings, figurines, church utensils. .jpg” height=”533″ width=”800″ style=”display: block;” />

For example, a man could boast of cutlery made by Faberge and other famous masters. Among the books that made up the bulk of the collection, there were many priceless copies. Also, the inconspicuous hard worker owned the manuscripts of Russian classics: Pushkin, Gogol, Griboyedov, Lermontov. The items were counted in the tens of thousands. To take all this stuff out of the house, it took more than a dozen trucks. In 1994, due to the enormous cultural value of the items and the need for suitable storage conditions, they were nationalized by special order. Books from the collection were transferred to the Chizhevsky Kirovograd Regional Scientific Library, and the Kirovograd Regional Museum of Local Lore received its subject matter.

The private collection of Alexander Ilyin was recognized as one of the largest in Europe, and its total value was estimated at a fortune. Figures were given from hundreds of millions to billions of dollars. For example, only the four-volume book “Grand Duke, Royal and Imperial Hunting in Russia” can cost about two hundred thousand dollars. Although such things cannot be measured only in money.

“As for the price, it is difficult to name it, the museum does not evaluate the exhibits, — told reporters at the time the leading curator of the funds department of the Kirovograd Regional Museum of Local Lore Miroslava Egurnova. — The figures of almost a billion dollars, which are given in the newspapers, are taken, as they say, “from the ceiling.” Of course, Ilyin's collection is unique, but its scientific value may be even greater than its consumer value. .jpg” height=”533″ width=”800″ style=”display: block;” />

Alexander Ilyin and his exhibits. Photo: frame from video

Hunter of the past

The biggest mystery was the origin of so many treasures from the gloomy electrician, which is still being argued about. It is known for sure that some of the things he got by inheritance. The mother of Alexander Ilyin, who was born in Rybinsk just three years after the revolution, was a noblewoman. Natalia Rimskaya-Korsakovasaved family values ​​for her son, which became the basis of the collection. The guy grew up among them and, apparently, became infected with a generic craving for gathering. Even in the pre-war years, he began to hunt for paintings, icons and other things that he looked for everywhere. Everything suggests that Alexander Ilyin took great pleasure in the very fact of possession and the process of accumulation. For the sake of a good thing, he was ready for a lot, perhaps even for a crime.

In his mature years, Ilyin himself told a friend that shortly after breaking the blockade of Leningrad, he exchanged an expensive silver mug for a bag of flour. At the same time, it is known that in 1944 the collector was caught stealing products that he could use just for exchange. But for some reason they put him away for a short time. There is evidence that he paid off with antiques and supposedly avoided military service in this way. After the war, Ilyin moved to Kirovograd, where he brought two baggage containers with antiquities and where he continued to maniacally hunt for new exhibits. A great help was his work as an electrician, which allowed him to get into people's houses for “reconnaissance”. He deliberately walked around the yards under the pretext of checking meters. Noticing, for example, an ancient icon in a dwelling, Ilyin, as it were, entered into a bargain.

Sometimes a man took things as payment for the work of an electrician, bought something for a nominal fee, but could fork out. He set aside money for his passion, for which he saved on everything and even ate free in the city canteen trust where he worked. Often Ilyin traded cultural values ​​for other items from the bins and somehow even “waved” with the museum. For old publications like the Ogonyok magazine; he received church books, which were not particularly valued under the Soviet regime. As an exchange fund, the electrician dragged everything home, and for this he climbed through landfills. There he also found materials for the restoration of old books, for which he had the greatest passion. For example, from the skin of discarded shoes, he could make a binding. Alexander Ilyin was engaged in such work selflessly and very skillfully.

Thanks to the talents of a bookbinder and a restorer, an electrician-collector once attacked a real gold mine. Before the closing of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, he undertook to restore the gospel of the rector and asked for old books for this. Having received the keys to the library, for each visit, the man took home a priceless edition under his clothes. He believed that thereby saving books from destruction. Just at that time, the Lavra was cordoned off by the military, who did not allow the priests to carry out valuables, but Ilyin somehow managed to do it. After his death, more than a hundred publications from the church library were found in his possession. He also replenished his collection by restoring icons for churches. Instead, he returned copies painted by a familiar artist. It is possible that he considered such a deception as a way to save historical values.

Not for prying eyes

The fact that Alexander Ilyin did not start a family and left no heirs is directly related to his passion for antiques. When asked about the reasons for his bachelor life, he replied that he could not bring a stranger into the house. Such seclusion largely explains the lack of reliable information about the emergence of a unique collection. Her wealth is difficult to explain even taking into account the facts described above from the biography of an electrician. Although he communicated with many collectors, museum workers, no one was at his house and could not imagine the scope of his home treasury. All this led to the emergence of conspiracy theories around the name of Alexander Ilyin.

According to the most unusual version, he collected and kept expensive antiques on the instructions of representatives of the state security agencies. Allegedly, in places of deprivation of liberty, Ilyin recruited the NKVD and instructed him to secretly perform delicate work. Although there is no serious evidence of his cooperation with the Chekists or party workers, this hypothesis was beaten by the creators of the television series Dragon Syndrome, released in 2012. In it, an electrician from Kirovograd is presented as a caretaker of someone else's illegal collection. A theory has also been put forward about Alexander Ilyin's close ties to organized crime, which looks even more dubious. But there is a lot of evidence that his rarities were in the center of attention of crime after the death of the owner. .jpg” height=”578″ width=”800″ style=”display: block;” />

Page of the newspaper “Kievskiye Vedomosti”.

Oddities began to happen immediately after the discovery of the collection. Thus, representatives of the society of collectors of Kirovograd complained about the suspicious behind-the-scenes approach in describing the values. None of them were involved in this work, and they directly accused museum employees of embezzlement. In a 1994 interview with Kirovogradskaya Pravda the head of the local department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs voiced suspicions that at that time part of the collection had already been sold abroad. It is significant that the journalists who covered this story reported that they were being pressured. The former head of the department of rare publications and valuable documents of the Kirovograd Regional Scientific Library also spoke about the threatening calls he received. According to some reports, more than 40 books from Ilyin's collection were missing there.

At first, the circumstances of the death of Alexander Ilyin were also considered suspicious. His nephews complained to the media that they were accused of murder. They said that even the uncle's body was exhumed for additional research, which eventually confirmed the natural cause of death. At the same time, relatives stated that they were still denigrated and made outcasts. When they wanted through the courts to obtain the right to own the collection, or at least receive compensation for it, they were allegedly denied assistance by both lawyers and judges. Maybe the whole point is that among these people there were also interested? According to rumors, some of the most valuable exhibits from the house of Alexander Ilyin fell straight into the hands of influential residents of Kirovograd and other cities of Ukraine.

Norway warns of worsening EU crisis with gas price cap

Norway's ministry warns of worsening crisis in EU due to gas price ceiling Deputy Energy Minister Andreas Eriksen explained that the price ceiling will not solve the fundamental problem – lack of resources. Instead, demand will increase, and the authorities of the EU countries will have to restrict consumption even more severely =”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Introducing a cap on gas prices could exacerbate the energy crisis in Europe, Andreas Eriksen, State Secretary of the Norwegian Ministry of Oil and Energy, told CNN.

“In government, we are skeptical about the gas price ceiling. First of all, because the fundamental problem in Europe now— lack of energy resources, and the price ceiling does not solve this problem. On the contrary, it may exacerbate the energy crisis, lead to too high demand in the market and the need for new restrictive measures. It can also divert gas flows from Europe to other markets, and this will also exacerbate the crisis in Europe this winter, — Eriksen believes.

He positively assessed some of the measures proposed by the European Commission instead of the price ceiling for Russian gas— for example, the withdrawal of excess profits from energy companies in favor of consumers.

Norway— the second largest gas exporter to the EU after Russia. The country supplies the European Union with about 40% of fuel. In June, Bloomberg wrote that Brussels had reached an agreement with Oslo to increase natural gas supplies.

The energy crisis in Europe has developed against the backdrop of sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia due to a special operation in Ukraine. In European countries, a record increase in prices over the past 40 years is recorded, primarily for utilities.

EU fears complete cessation of gas supplies from Russia: Gazprom in September, it once again stopped pumping through the Nord Stream; due to a gas leak at the turbine. At the same time, the countries of the bloc are considering a price ceiling for Russian gas as a sanction measure.

Financial Times wrote that at least ten European states are pushing for a price ceiling for all suppliers, not just from Russia.

So far, the EU states have not been able to reach a consensus on this issue, and the European Commission on September 14 proposed alternative measures to combat the crisis: the withdrawal of excess profits from oil, gas and coal companies, limiting the maximum profit for companies producing energy from renewable sources and lignite and nuclear energy enterprises, as well as limiting consumption.

Pashayev again lost the status of a lawyer five days after receiving it

The Council of the Chamber of Advocates of North Ossetia reinstated defender Mikhail Efremov in the status of a lawyer on September 10. The Federal Chamber of Lawyers of Russia is investigating this decision, and the head of the qualification commission who made it will himself lose the status media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Elman Pashaev

Elman Pashaev, who defended the actor Mikhail Efremov in the case of an accident, was again revoked the status of a lawyer. This was reported on the website of the Federal Chamber of Lawyers (FPA) of Russia.

The fact that Pashayev regained the status of a lawyer in the Bar Association of North Ossetia became known on September 10. He said that he was tested on June 27, and on August 5 he took the exam. According to Pashaev, the members of the commission unanimously voted for his return to the ranks of lawyers.

The decision to recall him again was made at a meeting of the FPA council in Makhachkala. It was also decided to oblige the Council of the Chamber of Advocates of North Ossetia to terminate the status of the lawyer of the chairman of the qualification commission, which accepted Pashaev into the chamber. A working commission will be created to investigate violations of the law in the North Ossetian chamber.

Prior to this, Pashaev was deprived of the status of a lawyer in September 2020 by decision of the Council of the Bar Association of North Ossetia. This was preceded by disciplinary proceedings opened in July against Pashaev and the lawyer of the injured party, Alexander Dobrovinsky.

During the trial of Efremov, Pashaev stated that “energy holes” could be the cause of the accident; and “aerosol clouds”, and also that the investigation did not take into account the version of the interception of Efremov's car by hackers. The Ministry of Justice considered the statements and behavior of the defense lawyer unacceptable.

The Chamber found in the lawyer's actions a violation of professional ethics. The FPA noted that Pashayev and Dobrovinsky reported to the media information constituting a lawyer's secret and used the Efremov case for self-promotion. Dobrovinsky in October 2020 was also deprived of the status of a lawyer for two years.

Pashayev was deprived of his lawyer status several times even before the Efremov case. In 2018, he spent several months in custody on an extortion case, after which the charge was re-qualified and Pashayev received a year of probation for arbitrariness.

The accident involving the actor occurred on June 8, 2020 on Smolenskaya Square in Moscow. The driver of the car that Efremov crashed into, Sergey Zakharov, died. Efremov was sentenced to eight years in a penal colony. Then his sentence was reduced to 7.5 years.

CEC refuses to purchase new generation electronic ballot boxes

The Central Election Commission refused to purchase 10 thousand electronic ballot boxes KOIB-2022, explaining the decision by the lack of suppliers and the “current situation.” Potential bidders insist on their readiness to supply complexes

The Central Election Commission has canceled the purchase of the latest ballot processing complexes (KOIB-2022), follows from the resolution adopted at the CEC meeting on September 15.

It was about 10 thousand new complexes, Sokolchuk said.

RBC sent a request to the CEC.

Both potential suppliers of KOIBs told RBC that they were interested in supplying these devices.

JSC “United Instrument-Making Corporation” (OPK) sent a letter to the CEC, in which it expressed its readiness to supply KOIBs, RBC was told in the press service of the Rostec state corporation, which includes the OPK. “The necessary technological capabilities for the production of KOIBs are currently available,” — they added there, emphasizing that the defense industry did not refuse to conclude a contract and was ready to implement all the requirements of the Central Election Commission.

N.E. Bauman declared his readiness to take part in the purchase, & mdash; added by Starzhuk.

In April, Sokolchuk already said that the Central Election Commission was refusing to purchase— according to him, the OPK did not conclude a contract “due to the current situation and the complexity of implementation.” In “Rostec” then they indicated that the holding did not refuse to sign the contact.

But [it] is immoral if there is an intention to provoke another big war, sell weapons or get rid of weapons that are no longer needed. The reasons in such cases determine the morality of such an act. Protect legally. There is an expression “love for the motherland”: if you don’t defend something, then you don’t love it, and if you defend it, then you love it, — said the pontiff.

In his opinion, states need to think more about the causes of conflicts, which are becoming more frequent. “Everyone talks about peace, for 70 years the UN has been talking about peace, but at this moment how many wars are going on?” Francis noted, citing the events in Ukraine, the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, between Eritrea and Ethiopia, as well as in Syria and Myanmar as an example.

He added that “weapon production” this is consent to murder,” and “if we do not produce weapons within a year, then we can solve the problem of hunger.”

The United States and European states stepped up arms supplies to Ukraine after the start of the operations. These are, among other things, HIMARS MLRS, Javelin and NLAW anti-tank systems, Stinger anti-aircraft systems.

By the end of June, RBC, based on data from the Ukraine Support Tracker project of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, calculated that the US and the EU had become the largest donors of military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. So, since the end of February, the amount of military assistance from the US authorities has reached $ 25.5 billion, humanitarian— $9.4 billion, financial— $ 9.5 billion. EU institutions transferred to Kyiv $ 2.1 billion in military assistance, $ 1.3 billion in humanitarian aid and $ 11.6 billion— financial.

Russia has repeatedly criticized the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the West only contributes to prolonging the conflict in Ukraine by supplying weapons, but Moscow will still achieve the goals of the special operation. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the transfer of long-range weapons to Kyiv would lead to the geographical expansion of the special operation and Russia's response.


US warns of sanctions for supporting Mir cards outside of Russia

The US Treasury announced that restrictive measures would affect Turkish banks.

The US Department of the Treasury announced the possible imposition of sanctions on organizations for servicing “Mir” outside Russia.

The agency's website states that the Office of Foreign Assets Control, under the Harmful Foreign Activities Sanctions Regulations, can block those who provide financial assistance to persons whose property and related interests are blocked.

The violations include an introduction to misleading or structured transactions and any transactions that allow you to circumvent US sanctions. And the Ministry of Finance is ready to use such powers if it supports the circumvention of anti-Russian sanctions.

We are talking about servicing “the Russian national payment system “Mir” outside the territory of the Russian Federation”.

Earlier, the Financial Times reported that the EU and the US are trying to punish Ankara banks that service cards & #8220;Mir”.

As a result, a number of hotels refused to accept Russian cards, but the NSPK called this information unreliable.

It is known that Russians with “Mir“ #8221; Turkey is served by Turkiye Is Bankasi, Ziraat Bankasi, VakifBank, DenizBank and Halkbank. Whether they continue to support the Russian payment system after the US threats, they can make such a decision on their own.

As “Interfax” clarifies, now “Mir” operates in 11 countries, including Turkey, Vietnam, South Korea, Armenia, Uzbekistan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

In the future, the card may be serviced in Iran, Cuba, Egypt, Thailand and Venezuela.

The lawyer listed unexpected situations when they can deprive child benefits

The allowance for a child from three to seven years old can be lost if the financial situation of the family has improved. About this in an interview with the agency «Prime» said Associate Professor of the Department of Statistics of the PRUE. G.V. Plekhanova Olga Lebedinskaya.

As the specialist explained,  sometimes it is enough for parents to buy a second apartment on a mortgage in order to lose the right to payments. So, if the area of ​​two apartments exceeds 24 square meters per person, then the allowance will no longer be paid.

“In the case of buying a house, the right to allowance disappears if the area per person exceeds 40 square meters,” – the expert warned.

The same applies to the purchase of a second car for the family. At the same time, as Lebedinskaya noted, to calculate the need, information on all incomes for the year that ended four months before the application will be used, and property will be taken into account at the time the family applies for payment.

Previously, the children's ombudsman in Tatarstan, Irina Volynets called for an increase in the childcare allowance to the full size of the parent's salary, as well as to extend the period of its accrual until the child reaches the age of three.

Can children living with a foster family go to the same school?

On September 14, the State Duma adopted in the first reading a bill on supporting children raised in a family of guardians. This was reported on the website of the department. 

The bill was submitted for consideration by the State Duma in June 2022. It involves amendments to two key federal laws of Russia on the family and education — to Article 54 of the Family Code (The right of a child to live and be brought up in a family) and to Article 67 of the Federal Law “On Education in the Russian Federation” (Organization of admission to training in basic general education programs).

What is the essence of the bill?

The new amendments give a child in care a “right of first choice” to the same school or kindergarten, if children from his new family are already being brought up or studying there. That is, if there are several children under guardianship in a family, then according to the bill, they should all be enrolled in one educational institution.

“A child under guardianship in a family, including in a foster family or in a foster family, has the right of preferential admission to study in the main general educational programs of preschool education and primary general education in the state or municipal educational organization in which the child who is being brought up with him in the same family », — State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin, at present, only siblings have the priority right to enroll in one school or kindergarten (it does not matter whether they have a common father and mother or only one common parent). However, families of foster parents and guardians most often have children who are not related to each other by blood, so this provision does not apply to them. That is why adoptive or foster parents face the problem of placing their children in one school, Volodin noted.

What inconvenience do children and caregivers experience?

If the guardian, foster or foster parents have children studying in different schools, then it is difficult to bring them to the beginning of classes on time, especially if the institutions are far from each other, the explanatory note to the bill says.

Except In addition, the authors of the document are concerned that with such trips, children cannot get a quality education, fully relax and safely get to school and back, and guardians cannot carry out full-fledged labor activities.

“The guardian who took the child to education takes on a huge responsibility. The task of the state — help such families: create favorable conditions, get rid of unnecessary worries, — Vyacheslav Volodin clarified.

The Chairman of the State Duma added that in the event of the final adoption of the law, the administration of institutions (kindergartens and schools) “will not have the right to refuse to enroll a child in a school or kindergarten if someone already goes to them something from his family.

No right to children. How does the ex-wife of Nikolai Kolesov fight for her kids?

A story as old as the world — dad and mom are trying to share the kids. Now the young ex-wife of an entrepreneur and a former politician is deprived of parental rights for three children. At the same time, the woman believes that everything was done illegally.

In the  court order, owner of the helicopter company Nikolai Kolesov took away two daughters and son from his ex-wife. And now, for the unfortunate woman, one of the most important tasks has become the return of the right to raise her babies to herself.

The biography of the father of the kids is rich in events and positions. So, he was the governor of the Amur region in 2007-2008. Nikolai is also a full member of the Academy of Natural Sciences of the Russian Federation, an honorary academician of the International Academy of Quality and Marketing, a full member of the Academy of Military Sciences. In his first marriage he had two children who are now adults. And here's about the second marriage, in which the businessman had three kids — two twin girls and boy — It isn't mentioned much anywhere.

Hate story

Nicholas and DianaWe met about 20 years ago, when the girl was 17 years old, Diana herself recalls. At that time, she lived in  Kazan and prepare after graduation for exams. In  her plans were to enter the pedagogical faculty of English and French languages.

When she had an affair with an adult man, her parents didn welcome it. But then they were fascinated by his attitude towards the young chosen one.

The romance proceeded perfectly, the couple planned children. When the woman was in the third month of pregnancy, the couple signed. A big wedding was not played — wanted to celebrate after childbirth. But it turned out not before   — The first pregnancy was difficult at first. Then, after being discharged some time later, Diana became pregnant again.

A black cat ran between spouses in 2019 year. Then the whole family went to & nbsp; Dubai, where the father of the family has real estate. The threat of mortal danger that hung over the world frightened Nikolay Kolesov — he was afraid of death, began to talk about it often. The whole family was vaccinated and almost never left the house so as not to bring the infection. Diana notes that at this moment he literally “broke” on alcohol, smoked a lot. At requests not to smoke in front of the children, with her words, he began to break loose and throw objects and dishes. "This was absolutely not the the person whom I once loved, with whom dreamed to until the end of our days  — says Diana.

The situation didn change on returning to Moscow. On the contrary, it only got worse and worse. Then the question arose about divorce — the woman believed that he will be afraid of losing her and will become the same, caring and loving again. In the end, they got divorced, and there was a question about children.

Diana notes that the nannies she knew were fired, others were put in their place, as a result, the mother simply could not find out if the children were in order. Nikolai Kolesov, at the same time, wrote a statement to the police that the woman allegedly tried to get into foreign territory. And this word — “foreign” — it hurts the most for her. After all, she lived in this house for 7 years, her personal belongings, some documents remained there. Security doesn't let her in either. Also, the woman receives and threats from strange numbers. As a result, Nikolai deprived Diana of maternal rights, because of which she is now legally deprived of the opportunity to find out how her babies are. But at the same time, the woman does not give up and fights, every day she fights for her babies, for the right to be called their mother. After all, she believes it was taken from her illegally.

Legal assistance

Diana Kolesova is sure that in the whole situation, her ex-husband's assistant was a lawyer. Her former lawyer Tatyana Slavinskaya. The piquancy of the situation is that the lawyer — mother of three children herself. A woman with experience and very titled — she is a member of the Association of Lawyers of the Russian Federation, adviser of the State Duma apparatus of the  and vice-president for legal issues of one of companies.

Diana Kolesova, at the beginning of her divorce story, when the order of communication with children was discussed, issued a power of attorney to the lawyer and completely relied on her to protect her rights. “I and couldn’t have imagined that all this would result in the deprivation of my parental rights. For a long time, she sent me a report, including audio messages from Kolesov, that they are discussing in detail the order of communication, agreeing on the details and are about ready to sign   — Diana is lamenting today.

Moreover, the woman really listened to their negotiations and was almost 100% sure that things were going to peace signing. She was even sent the text of the settlement agreement. In fact, a parallel trial was going on to deprive her of parental rights. At the court, Diana was represented by a certain Malinovsky, whom, as Diana says, she never knew herself and has not seen eyes s seen. Moreover, which is strange, according to Diana, — this representative made no objection during the meeting to the woman being deprived of her children. As soon as the case was done, lawyer Slavinskaya stopped contacting — — didn didn pick up the phone and sent Diana to block in all social networks and messengers.

Now the young mother continues to fight for her children and hopes that the court will take her side, because the first the decision was made without her knowledge and illegally, as the woman is sure.

Forensic scientist told how smartphones collect data about their owners

Modern smartphones are constantly collecting data about their owners and watching what they say. About this “Prime” Igor Mikhailov, a Group-IB digital forensics specialist, said.

According to him, smartphone geolocation data is automatically transmitted to the servers of operating system development companies. Then they are sold to the owners of the corresponding services.

In addition, the ability to listen is the functionality of some malicious programs.

According to the expert, surveillance using a mobile phone can be minimized. The owner in this case must limit the access of applications to the camera and voice recorder and not install applications from unverified sources. It is also worth restricting the access of applications to geolocation.
