“Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, Goethe, and Hemingway are welcome here , and Serbia can be proud of this, even if it is a rare country in today's world,»— said Vucic.

He added that Serbia remains an island surrounded by NATO. “All around us are countries where NATO is located. There is not a single country that is not in NATO, Serbia is like a small island. Some call it a problem. What is the problem that you believe in your people, in the heroic genes of your citizens, and that we are able to defend our land and want to have the right to defend our borders, our country, have our own military and defend our sky, — he said.

Vučić has repeatedly spoken about the neutrality of Serbia, but noted that its path is directed to the EU. At the same time, Belgrade does not intend to “trample its friendship that it has in the East,” he noted. Serbia also refused to impose sanctions against Russia, but, according to the president, it costs her dearly. Belgrade will resist imposing restrictions on Russia “for as long as it can.” Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a congratulatory telegram to Vucic, indicated that his foreign policy is independent, and partnership relations between the countries “meet the interests of the fraternal peoples of Russia and Serbia.”

At the same time, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic in May compared the actions of Russia in Ukraine and the actions of Western countries in relation to Serbia in 1999 and 2008. “When the great powers choose which UN resolution to fully comply with and which to violate, then an international legal order based on the rule of force emerges. Russia today is doing what some other countries did to us in 1999 and 2008,— Brnabic said then. The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, called such a comparison inappropriate.

Turkey called two obstacles to the start of the export of grain from Ukraine by sea

Turkish Foreign Minister: Ukrainian mines and sanctions against Russia do not allow the resumption of grain imports src=”https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/media/img/9/92/756540076284929.jpg” alt=”Turkey named two obstacles to start exporting grain from Ukraine by sea” />

< p>Ukrainian mines off the coast of the Odessa region and sanctions on the insurance of Russian ships and the provision of services to them in foreign ports are the main obstacles to the resumption of grain supplies from Ukraine through the Black Sea. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlet Cavusoglu stated this in an interview with Anadolu agency.

“Ukraine does not want Russian warships to call at the ports of Odessa. Russia also does not want the ships that will carry cargo along this corridor to deliver weapons to Ukraine. How can they be sure of all this? There should be a verification mechanism,»,— said the minister.

According to him, from a technical point of view, it is possible to clear mines at sea in one or two weeks, and Turkey has already begun work on discussing a way out of this situation. The minister also said that “Russia and Ukraine agreed on this issue in principle”, but the details of further work are still to be discussed.

Cavusoglu said that Turkey contributes to building trust between Ukraine and Russia and cooperates with the UN. “The UN has a proposal: to create a quadripartite contact group with the participation of the United Nations, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine. We agreed to this in principle. Consultations are being held at the technical level, the idea of ​​implementation has appeared. But full consensus has not yet been reached, — the minister said.

At the same time, he stated that Turkey complies with all sanctions and will not allow any of the countries to bypass them. At the same time, he noted that Turkey has assumed obligations to ensure the security of maritime supplies. “We have an important role in ensuring the safety of navigation and the passage of ships carrying grain from ports,” & mdash; minister added.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he hoped a decision to resume grain supplies from Ukraine would be found in “the coming days or weeks” and also welcomed Turkey's efforts. “The EU and Turkey will make efforts to unblock the export of Ukrainian grain. <…> This grain, 20 million tons, should be sent to those countries that need it, as well as to food programs,— he said at a press conference after the EU summit in Brussels.

Also, according to Macron, any contacts with Russia, including Turkey, on the issue of unblocking grain supplies should be welcomed.

Earlier, Kyiv requested international guarantees to restore grain supplies from Ukraine, saying that unilateral Russian guarantees were not enough. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that his country does not object to the participation of the UN in solving this problem.

In turn, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia is ready to ensure the exit of ships from Ukrainian ports and their movement to destinations as soon as Ukraine clears coastal waters. He also stated that Western countries artificially created problems by closing their ports to Russian ships, destroying the logical and financial chains.

Russia and Ukraine— one of the world's largest suppliers of wheat. In the 2021/22 season, the Russian side accounted for 16% of wheat exports in the world, the Ukrainian— 10%, follows from the data of the US Department of Agriculture. Since the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, world leaders have repeatedly expressed fears about the potential shortage of food, and UN representatives spoke about this.

In mid-March, the FSB announced that on the approaches to the ports of Odessa, Ochakov, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny, the Ukrainian naval forces had placed 420 mines, which made navigation in the area and exits from the ports impossible.

Chapter European Commission Ursula von der Leyen accused Russia of using hunger and grain to gain influence in the world. In response, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Security Council, Vasily Nebenzya, said that the country opened a safe corridor for grain transportation in the Black Sea, but ships from the Ukrainian port in Odessa did not use it. “We are accused of not letting ships through, but we didn’t set the mines,” — he explained.

French President Emmanuel Macron warned of the risk of an “unprecedented” food crisis due to events in Ukraine and the inability to export from this country. US President Joe Biden then agreed with his French counterpart and said that “the shortage of food will be real.”

The United States and Canada offered to help in resuming the import of Ukrainian grain.

A few days after the start of Russia's military operation in Ukraine, Ankara, in accordance with the Montreux Convention, closed the straits for warships of Russia and Ukraine. At the same time, the warships of the two countries could pass through the straits to return to their main anchorage ports.

With a request to close the straits, Kyiv turned to Turkey on February 24, the day the hostilities began in Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky later thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for this decision. “The ban on the passage of Russian warships to the Black Sea and significant military, humanitarian assistance are extremely important today,” — Zelensky pointed out.

The Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, along with the Sea of ​​Marmara, connect the Black Sea with the Mediterranean. This is the only way from the Black Sea to the World Ocean. Turkey controls both shores of the straits.

In Russia, it is necessary to update the legislation on the circulation of medicines and take into account the peculiarities of gene therapy drugs. This was stated in an interview with Gazeta.ru by the director of the National Center for Personalized Medicine for Endocrine Diseases. Pavel Volchkov.

According to him, the current federal law, adopted in 2010, does not fit at all with innovative drugs – gene therapy, cellular, mixed nature and genome-edited. 

“This law was developed for drugs such as aspirin. This is a specific chemical compound, and there are corresponding requirements for it. And if a gene therapy drug went through these requirements, it would never be registered,” – explained Volchkov.

He noted that in the United States there is a separate regulation for such drugs. According to the expert, Russia needs  effective legislation in this area, which would allow even small companies to compete in the market of new medicines, otherwise, under the sanctions, the country may be left without modern innovative treatment.

According to the publication, now Amendments on high-tech medicines are being discussed by a working group on improving legal regulation in the field of gene and cell technologies.

Support yours. V. A. Stratiy on the creation of the Veterans Support Fund

The path to the creation of the Foundation was not easy and required determination from its founders. 

Material, social and moral support for hero builders

GVSU veterans “Center” — these are real patriots who devoted themselves to their cause without a trace — service to the Fatherland. Do your best and even a little more — it's about them. Several generations of officers, military engineers, military builders, workers and employees of the GVSU “Center” made an invaluable contribution to strengthening the defense capability of our country.

Among the military civil engineers of the GVSU «Tsentr» 210 people were awarded the title of “Honored Builder of the Russian Federation”, 13 people were awarded the Order of Lenin, 57 people — Order of the Red Banner of Labor, and 12 people — Order of Military Merit.

However, even such heroes of labor, like most people of retirement age, often experience problems with socialization and need help to solve health problems and improve their lives. 

p>

In November 2020 Vladimir Aleksandrovich Stratii, who led the Open Joint Stock Company Holding Company GVSU “Center” since 1998, and an initiative group of like-minded people decided to create the Fund for the Support of Labor Veterans of the Main State Military Institution of Ukraine “Center”. This organization is called upon to provide material, social and moral assistance to the builders-heroes who have worked tirelessly for the good of Russia all their lives.

However, the path to the creation of the Fund was not easy and required decisive action from V. A. Stratiy and his colleagues.

Reliable Construction Center

The main military construction department “Center” was established in 1964 as a self-supporting production association that organizes the construction of the most important facilities and housing on the territory of the European part of the country, as well as on the Black Sea coast, the North Caucasus and the Crimea, in the Groups of Soviet Forces Abroad (Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Mongolia). Over time, Glavk developed into a large-scale successful structure with factories, factories, educational complexes, technical schools and kindergartens. However, the main value of GVSU «Center» was his 28,000-strong team: 2.5 thousand officers, 18 thousand soldiers, as well as workers and employees.

One of the most complex, but at the same time memorable and interesting projects of the Glavka was the construction of the building of the General Staff of the Armed Forces in 1981. According to the memoirs of retired Major General V. A. Stratiya, “even to visit such a construction site for a military civil engineer — luck". “Directly participate in works of this magnitude, reach the logical end — great experience, both engineering and life”, — Vladimir Alexandrovich told later.

As part of the activities of the GVSU “Center”; military builders erected objects for the union ministries, the Central Committee of the CPSU, the Council of Ministers of the USSR, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. Many of the Glavka's projects, such as the Moscow air defense ring, continue to receive the highest marks from specialists.

A new stage while maintaining the same capacity

In the 90s GVSU “Center” began to feel a chronic lack of funding. V. A. Stratiy recalls that in those years there were moments when the Glavka had nothing to feed the soldiers, they did not pay salaries to officers and wages to civilian personnel. Orders were still received by Glavk, but there was nothing to pay for them due to the reduction in the budget of the RF Ministry of Defense.

In 1998, the many thousands of staff of the GVSU “Center” By decree of the President of the Russian Federation, it was withdrawn from the Armed Forces and transformed into a joint-stock holding company. “The generals, officers and workers were required to make a decision and not get confused, — recalls Vladimir Stratiy, who at that time was the head of the GVSU “Center” and became the CEO of the newly formed holding. — They were able to do this, relying only on the solid potential of the traditions of Glaucus: devotion to their construction business, statehood in decisions and deeds.

The most important task that the company's management solved at that time was to preserve the production capacities of organizations and enterprises, as well as labor collectives and their human resources. More than 1,500 officers, formally dismissed from the ranks of the Armed Forces, remained to work in their places, which ensured the stability and reliability of work teams.

Structure, capacity and experience of GVSU «Tsentr» allowed the new holding to quickly respond to market requirements, introduce innovative design solutions and advanced technologies in the construction industry, maintain a high level of work quality and increase construction volumes.

Deserved rest

Today the veterans of the GVSU ;Centre» during anniversaries and other significant dates, they look back and soberly assess their path. They remember their professional successes, but even on a well-deserved retirement, they try to lead an active lifestyle and do not stop thinking about today and tomorrow. 

For military people, to instantly step from military life to civilian — it is a difficult psychological step. Civil engineering veterans often need help — both material and moral. Thanks to the initiative of V. A. Stratiy and his like-minded people, the Fund for Support of Veterans of Labor GVSU “Center” provide assistance to those who really need it. Who better than your colleagues from Glaucus know best how to help veterans and hero builders?

Draghi said that major EU countries are against candidate status for Ukraine

Prime Minister of Italy: a number of EU countries oppose granting candidate status to Ukraine At the same time, Italian Prime Minister Draghi stressed that Rome is in favor of granting Kyiv the status of a candidate for the EU

Mario Draghi

Almost all major countries— Members of the European Union, except Italy, object to granting Ukraine the status of a candidate member of the EU. This was stated by Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi after an extraordinary EU summit, Ansa reports.

“[Granting Ukraine] the status of a candidate is not currently expected due to the opposition of these countries”,— he emphasized.

At the same time, he mentioned the accelerated procedure for the admission of Ukraine to the European Union. According to him, its introduction “can be assumed.” “It seems to me that the European Commission also agrees with this,” — Draghi added.

Earlier, on May 23, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte considered it unlikely that Ukraine would soon receive EU candidate status, as it was “very far” from this even before the start of the Russian military operation.

In addition, Rutte added, it would be unfair to the countries of the Western Balkans, which have been claiming to become candidates for much longer.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky asked the Prime Minister of the Netherlands to express a clearer position on Ukraine's accession to the European Union.

He thanked him for the assistance that the country provides to Ukraine. “But as far as the EU is concerned, you were silent about everything we wanted to hear. <…> If you think that we do not belong in the EU, you must clearly say so, — he said. Rutte replied that there is a place for Ukraine in the European Union, but for entry “you need to go through certain stages.”

French President Emmanuel Macron said on May 9 that the process of Ukraine's accession to the European Union may take several decades, even if Kyiv is soon granted the status of a candidate country.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, speaking in parliament on May 19, agreed with Macron, saying that “there is no shortcut to the EU” .

Ukraine's aspiration to join the EU has been enshrined in the country's Constitution since 2019. On February 28, a few days after the start of the Russian military operation, Zelensky signed an application for the country's accession to the EU, asking for approval “immediately”. The Ukrainian authorities also filled out a questionnaire that should help Brussels decide whether Kyiv will become a candidate for membership.

Milanovic said that “Putin will smile” in the event of a gas embargo

According to the Croatian President, sanctions against Russia do not work. At the same time, the Italian prime minister said that Moscow would feel the consequences of Western sanctions this summer

Zoran Milanovic

All the sanctions that Western countries have imposed against Russia so far have not led to the weakening of the ruble and the Russian economy, said Croatian President Zoran Milanovic.

“Introduce an embargo on gas from Russia as well. Why don't you enter? Unfortunately, the sanctions do not function, maybe one day they will. Neither the ruble fell, nor Russia financially felt it, and when it does, then it will complete <…> [special operation in Ukraine]. European citizens will pay the price for this, and Vladimir Putin will only smile with satisfaction, — said the politician.

In turn, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi noted that sanctions against Russia on gas and oil imports will be in place for a very long time, and trade channels will change for many years, “if not forever.”

He also stressed that the EU countries' agreement on a new package of sanctions was a “complete success”. Italy, he added, would not suffer unnecessary damage from the cessation of Russian oil imports, as the conditions would come into effect at the end of the year. At the same time, according to him, the Russian economy will feel them starting this summer.

Since the beginning of the Russian operation in Ukraine, the European Union has already imposed five packages of sanctions against Moscow, and on the evening of May 30 agreed to a partial ban on the import of Russian oil as part of the sixth package of sanctions. The ban will be imposed on offshore oil supplies and will not affect exports through pipelines, through which EU members, including Hungary, Germany and Poland, received about a third of the oil.

At the same time, Germany and Poland decided to independently abandon any form of Russian oil supplies (by sea and pipelines). Therefore, by the end of the year, it will be sent to the EU only through the southern part of the Druzhba pipeline, which accounts for 10% of the total volume of oil bought by the EU from Russia, explained the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.

How notes the FT, for the introduction of duties there will be no need to obtain the consent of all members of the union, a qualified majority will suffice. “The preferred option is still a ban on [Russian oil] imports,” — the source said, adding that the position of the Hungarian leadership is weakening.

The introduction of tariffs will only be discussed if there is an opinion among EU members that Budapest is “only playing for time”, hoping that it will be able to use the delay indefinitely, the FT interlocutor specified.

The countries agreed to introduce a partial oil embargo, which will affect the supply of Russian oil by sea.
