Lavrov and Cavusoglu did not solve the problem with the export of Ukrainian grain

What options were discussed and what is the position of Kyiv The Foreign Ministers of Russia and Turkey discussed in Ankara options for the export of Ukrainian grain through the corridors in the Black Sea. Sergei Lavrov promised that they would not be used for military operations, but Kyiv is waiting for anti-ship missiles

What options for the export of grain were discussed by Russia and Turkey

On Tuesday, June 7, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Ankara to discuss with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu the issue of exporting Ukrainian grain by sea. Since the beginning of the Russian military special operation, more than 20 million tons of grain intended for export have been stuck on the territory of Ukraine. Previously, it was transported to destination countries by dry cargo ships through the Black Sea, but Ukrainian ports in the Odessa region were mined after the outbreak of hostilities. At the same time, the approach to them is controlled by the Russian fleet.

Ukraine— the fifth largest grain exporter in the world. It supplies wheat, corn and sunflower oil to a number of African countries. The country accounts for up to 50% of the purchases of the UN food program, which distributes humanitarian aid to poor countries, including Yemen and Libya, where food is already in short supply.

Back in late May, Cavusoglu, in an interview with Anadolu agency, announced Turkey's readiness, which is responsible for the passage of ships to and from the Black Sea, to help establish trust between the parties on the issue of grain exports and announced the UN initiative to create an appropriate quadripartite contact group. The minister noted that Ankara gave its consent to this and announced the start of consultations at the technical level. “Ukraine does not want Russian ships to enter Odessa, and Russia does not want other ships along this corridor to deliver weapons to Ukraine. Both sides need certainty and guarantees, — Cavusoglu explained. At the same time, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held telephone conversations with the presidents of Russia and Ukraine.

A few days later, Anadolu, citing Turkish diplomatic sources, announced the development by the parties of the “road map” on the creation of a shipping corridor in the Black Sea. It was assumed that the corridor would operate under the auspices of the UN and that the grain would be transported along it to a special distribution center, which would be built for this purpose in Istanbul. The agreement was to be signed by representatives of the three countries and the UN. A few days before Lavrov's visit to Ankara, Russian-Turkish consultations at an expert level began in Istanbul, and on the evening of June 7, Russian and Turkish Defense Ministers Sergei Shoigu and Hulusi Akar by phone “discussed in detail the issues of safety of navigation in the Black Sea in conjunction with the solution of the problem export of grain from the territory of Ukraine».

At a press conference following the talks held on June 8, Lavrov and Cavusoglu did not announce an agreement on the creation of a corridor. But the Turkish minister called the plan proposed by the UN “reasonable and feasible”, noting the need for additional consultations between Russia and Ukraine on the issue of ensuring the safety of navigation. Cavusoglu described the meeting itself as “fruitful”. He also spoke in favor of partial lifting of sanctions against Russia if it decides to support the initiative to create a transport corridor, calling such a condition “quite legal”.

Lavrov, in turn, said that Ukrainian grain “can be freely transported to destinations, there are no obstacles from Russia.” According to him, for this, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky needs to order foreign ships in ports to enter the Black Sea. According to the minister, the Russian Black Sea Navy has been announcing for more than a month about humanitarian corridors from the territorial waters of Ukraine to the Bosphorus Strait, which could be used by all ships to be sent to ports of permanent registry. “Until recently, the Ukrainian authorities, including President Zelensky, publicly denied their willingness to clear these territorial waters in order to begin this process. But if now, as our Turkish friends tell us, the Ukrainian side is ready to ensure the passage— either to clear mines, or to provide passage through minefields, & mdash; Let's hope then that the problem will be solved, — Lavrov said. He added that Russia would be happy to cooperate if the Kyiv authorities were “ripe”.

The Russian minister stressed that Moscow was ready to give Kyiv guarantees that it would not use port clearance for military purposes. “These are the guarantees of the President of Russia, we are ready to issue them in one way or another,” — he explained.

“The key, hidden part of the grain problem is that Ukraine's goal is to use the grain problem to completely unblock ports in order to import at least fuel and lubricants, and as a maximum— weapons with ammunition. Russia will insist on such a regime for the export of grain, in which it will be able to inspect ships and check cargo,»,— Director of the Center for Comprehensive European and International Studies at the National Research University Higher School of Economics Vasily Kashin told RBC.

Therefore, the expert explained, and there is a discussion of at what stage grain carriers will accompany Russian ships, and at what stage— Turkish. Kashin is sure that the refusal to inspect ships will entail direct military risks for Russia. “Russia deliberately strikes at transport infrastructure facilities, such as railway traction substations and in some cases— bridges and plus fuel storage facilities to hinder the supply of fuels and lubricants, ammunition and weapons. If there is easy access by sea, then all these efforts will lose their meaning, — he summed up.

How Kyiv reacted to the talks in Ankara

The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Dmitry Kuleba, commenting on the results of the talks in Ankara, said that Kyiv welcomed the talks on the export of Ukrainian grain, but any decision on this issue must take into account the security of the country. He noted that the Ukrainian authorities are cooperating with the UN on this issue.

“All other tracks and efforts— please, we welcome them, but on one condition: the final decision must take into account the security interests of Ukraine 100%,— the minister said, explaining that this requires “a sufficient number of weapons capable of protecting Odessa and that part of the Black Sea coast from land.”

Also, according to him, it is necessary to create a mission to patrol the future maritime corridor by ships of the countries who Ukraine can trust. Turkey is one of them, Kuleba specified.

“Lavrov's words are empty. Ukraine has clearly stated its position on seaports: it needs military equipment to protect the coastline and a Navy mission to patrol export routes in the Black Sea. Russia cannot be allowed to use grain corridors to attack southern Ukraine,— wrote the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Oleg Nikolenko on Twitter.

Earlier, Zelensky said that the supply of anti-ship missiles to Kyiv would be the “best guarantee”; unblocking Ukrainian ports. “Weapons that we can place in the region. We are working on it and we will get anti-ship systems,— conveyed his words to RBC-Ukraine. The Ukrainian president also promised that Russian ships would not be able to enter the unblocked ports.

Denmark can supply the required systems. On May 23, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin told reporters that Copenhagen would provide Ukraine with Harpoon anti-ship missiles and a launcher for them. A few days later, a senior Pentagon official said that about 20 Ukrainian military personnel were already being trained in their use— the training takes place outside of Ukraine, the American military participates in it.

UN Secretary General warns of world grain shortage due to fertilizer prices

The conflict in Ukraine and record fertilizer prices could leave “billions of people” in Asia and South America facing food shortages, Guterres said

High cost of fertilizer as a result of hostilities in Ukraine threatens to have a shortage of all major crops, this could affect “billions of people”, said UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

“Food prices are at an all-time high. Fertilizer prices have more than doubled, worrisome everywhere. Without fertilizer, corn and wheat shortages will spread to all major crops, including rice, with a devastating impact on billions of people in Asia and South America. he said.

As the Secretary General of the organization noted, the food crisis this year is largely due to a shortage of fertilizers, which next year may result in a food shortage.

Fertilizer prices rose after Russia launched a special operation in Ukraine. In April, the European Union restricted the import of Russian fertilizers. The quota for potassium chloride will be 837.57 thousand tons, for other fertilizers containing potassium— 1.57 million tons. Imports of potash fertilizers are limited by the EU and from Belarus.

In turn, the Russian authorities at the end of May extended the quotas for the export of mineral fertilizers until December 31 of this year. The decision affected nitrogen (a quota of more than 8.3 million tons) and complex fertilizers (more than 5.9 million tons). Quotas are needed in order to prevent a shortage of fertilizers in the Russian market and help avoid rising prices for products, the government noted. The restrictions will not apply to the supply of fertilizers to the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

On May 16, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources, that Guterres proposed to ease restrictions on the export of Russian and Belarusian potash fertilizers to exchange for the passage of ships with grain from the ports of Ukraine; according to the publication, he discussed this issue with Russia and Turkey. The UN World Food Program previously reported that about 25 million tons of grain “stuck” in Ukraine due to infrastructure problems and “blocked Black Sea ports”.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Russia is the world's largest exporter of wheat, and Ukraine ranks fifth. Together they provide 19% of the world's supply of barley, 14%— wheat and 4%— corn.

According to the World Trade Organization, Russia and Ukraine account for 24% of world wheat supplies.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the supply of Russian potash fertilizers and the export of Ukrainian grain are being discussed, but “not at the UN level.” The day before, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that in order to solve the problem with the export of grain, it is necessary that Ukrainians release ships from their ports by either clearing mines or identifying safe corridors.

Mironov said that they demanded to remove the banner from Z and V from the party building

After visiting the special operation zone, many are surprised that in Moscow there are “no wires, no wires,” Mironov wrote. He said that the inspection ordered to remove the banner in support of the special operation from the party office building due to numerous requests

The Moscow mayor's office demanded that the Just Russia party For the truth” (SR) to remove from the building of his office a banner in support of the special operation in Ukraine with the Latin letters Z and V, folded from the St. George ribbon. This was announced by the head of the party Sergei Mironov.

He clarified that the request came from the Inspectorate for Controlling the State of Artistic Design and Advertising, the key argument was the numerous appeals of the townspeople. Mironov doubted the existence of such appeals and noted that otherwise “I would like to look into their eyes” and find out the reason for the dissatisfaction.

Another reason for removing the banner in the inspectorate was the use of the St. George ribbon for its design, Mironov continued, noting: “Iron logic”; this is a symbol of Victory, and since May 9 has passed, everything related to the holiday must be removed. Apparently, we are allowed to remember the war once a year. He stated that the ribbon appeared 176 years before Victory Day, in the current conditions it has become a symbol of support for Russia's actions in Ukraine, which has led to a ban in a number of countries of the former USSR. The head of the SR added: “There, Moscow officials found an example to follow.”

RBC sent a request to the Moscow Inspectorate for Control over the Condition of Art Design and Advertising.

“I constantly communicate with journalists and volunteers who come from the places of hostilities to the capital. Many of them are surprised that in the outward appearance of Moscow there is nothing reminiscent of the war in which the fate of the country is decided: not a single patriotic billboard, not a single portrait of our heroes, no zets, no veshek,— written by Mironov.

At the end of March, a large letter Z, folded from the St. George ribbon, appeared on the building of the Moscow Theater of Oleg Tabakov, the press service of the theater reported that this was the initiative of artistic director Vladimir Mashkov. The theater noted that the placement of Z was agreed with the Moscow authorities. “I am very proud that today this symbol for the motherland, for our army, for our president, for the life of our children without Nazis and Bandera has appeared on our building, on the building of our theater,” — then Mashkov said.

Spiegel learned about the delays in the supply of German weapons to Kyiv

According to the newspaper, a week after the promise of Chancellor Olaf Scholz to deliver heavy weapons to Ukraine in the near future, only spare parts were transferred to Kyiv

Despite the statements of Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Germany has not yet transferred a single unit to Ukraine heavy weapons. This is reported by Spiegel, citing an email sent to security politicians.

The letter says, in part, that this week “no additions” to the delivered weapons were not reported. In addition, the government also does not intend to publicly publish lists of weapons delivery, the newspaper writes.

On June 1, Scholz announced that Germany would supply Ukraine with modern IRIS-T air defense systems: they would be transferred to Kyiv in the coming weeks. The Armed Forces of Ukraine will also receive a modern radar station and 12 PzH 2000 self-propelled artillery mounts (ACS) from Germany.

Nevertheless, according to Spiegel, only spare parts have been transferred to Kyiv over the past few weeks.

Germany has long adhered to the policy of refusing to supply weapons to Ukraine, but revised it after the start of the Russian military operation on February 24, while maintaining an unspoken ban on the supply of heavy weapons.

At the same time, Berlin announced its intention to transfer 30 Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns to Kyiv, organizing appropriate training for the Ukrainian military on the territory of Germany. The first batch of these installations equipped with automatic guns should go to Ukraine in July, the second & mdash; in August.

Delays in the delivery of heavy weapons cause disagreements between Kyiv and Berlin. As Welt reported in mid-May, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, discussing this issue with German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht, “lost his temper.” According to the newspaper, he demanded an answer about the supply of tanks and a quick solution to the issue of ammunition.

Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk argued that Scholz did not really intend to implement the call of the Bundestag and supply Kyiv with heavy weapons. In an interview with RND, Melnyk agreed with the journalist's statement that the choice of Gepard for delivery to Ukraine is a farce, since the FRG has only 23 thousand shells for them, which is enough for just half an hour of operation of one installation.

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that by supplying Ukraine with weapons, the West contributes to the “continuation of bloodshed.” “This is both a business and a hell of a carousel, and, among other things, the main goal— destabilization of the region»,— said the representative of the department, Maria Zakharova. The Ministry of Defense claimed that convoys with military assistance from NATO countries would become a “legitimate target” for the Russian military.

According to the adviser to the US president, Washington is ready to improve relations with Caracas, but first Venezuela needs to “reach a certain set of agreements with the opposition”

Juan Guaidó during the protests

The United States is ready to improve relations with Venezuela in a number of areas, but is waiting for certain steps from his side, said National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

“We are ready to take steps, if there are steps on their part, it should be action in response to action. And the first important step would be to reach a certain set of agreements with the opposition that would demonstrate [Venezuela's] good faith, progress,” Sullivan said.

He noted that the United States continues to recognize opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim President of Venezuela.

The United States, amid mass protests in 2019 in Venezuela, supported opposition leader Juan Guaido, and former President Donald Trump proclaimed him head of the country. Washington also imposed sanctions against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his entourage, imposed restrictions on the export and import of oil.

After Russia launched a special operation in Ukraine and imposed sanctions against Moscow on the supply of oil, US representatives resumed dialogue with Caracas about easing sanctions on oil exports, Reuters wrote. After that, in early March, US President Joe Biden announced the release of two Americans who were in custody in Venezuela.

May 18, Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez confirmed the lifting of US sanctions on the work of foreign oil companies in the country , and the US Treasury, in consultation with the State Department, has issued a license authorizing US oil and gas company Chevron to negotiate a possible resumption of production in Venezuela.

WHO: Monkeypox survivor can become re-infected

Story Monkeypox outbreak in the world

Re-infection with monkeypox is possible because immunity does not confer 100% protection against the disease, said Rosamund Lewis, head of the smallpox secretariat for the WHO Emergencies Programme.

She cited the example of a doctor from West Africa who was in contact with monkeypox and fell ill again after a while.

WHO does not recommend launching universal vaccination against this disease, RIA Novosti reports. The head of the organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, explained that there are few vaccines available, they are used mainly to protect those at higher risk of infection.

Monkeypox is a viral zoonotic disease that is characteristic of African countries. The infection is usually transmitted to humans from rodents and primates. Recently, cases of monkeypox have been recorded in various European countries, as well as in America and Australia.

Note that there are no people infected with this infection in Russia.

You can lie to him from three boxes … Why can’t they stop scammers in Russia?

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 23. What else will the West freeze to spite Russia 08/06/2022

In Russia, scammers of all stripes have become more active. Why nobody can stop them and how not become a victim of swindlers. 

According to data of the Central Bank, only for the first quarter of 2022  scammers stole 3.3 billion rubles from the Russians, and only 6.2% of this amount was returned. In May the same number of complaints about the actions of intruders increased by 86%. Moreover, they began to use social engineering less frequently, switching to "high technologies". How can not fall for such tricks?

Unfortunate brokers and deceived hopes

It would be fine only retirees who find it difficult to understand new technologies would fall for the bait of scammers. But criminals manage to swindle large sums out of pockets of           those who keep pace with progress.     

"Playing on the stock exchange is easy!" — how many times have we heard these advertising slogans. So the offers of scammers fall on already prepared soil. In Yakutia, according to data of the Republican Ministry of Internal Affairs, for the first quarter of 2022  recorded 18 "investment" crimes against 15 such appeals last year. One of the victims, a 44-year-old doctor, said that a certain “investment company manager” called him on his mobile phone. and began to explain how you can make money on exchange trading. Realizing that the man was interested, the caller switched him to "financial analyst". And she, in turn, suggested that the victim start with an investment in "balance of trade" 2 & nbsp; million rubles. By all means, the unlucky «investor» transferred to the accounts of five different people. In order to finally assure the man that his money “plays on” the stock exchange, the scammers insisted on installing an application through which it was possible to track the “flow of funds”. Through complex fraud, 4.1 million rubles were lured from the doctor.

Every year, the number of crimes committed with the use of mobile communications and the Internet, and in Krasnodar Territory, is growing. If in 2017  4693 such cases were registered there, then in 2021 already 14 393. According to the  deputy head of the department for detecting theft with the use of information and telecommunication technologies of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Krasnodar Territory, Pavel Genzersky, precisely on scam fraud (scam in translated from English — "scam, fraud", this is the name of deception on the Internet. — Ed.) Kuban residents most often complain.

— When foreign social networks were not yet blocked, scammers launched targeted ads there and, masquerading as well-known banks, offered to earn on investments, — explains the principles of deception P. Genzersky. — When a victim submits a request, the a "financial adviser" is contacted.

Under the guidance of a “consultant” a person installs a remote access program, an electronic wallet on his smartphone or computer, registers on a fraudulent platform, the growth of interest on which creates an artificial picture of a safe investment. Sometimes, at the initial stages, scammers even allow some to withdraw small amounts. And & nbsp; people, seeing the return on small money, then willingly increase their “deposits”. Such communication with a fraudster can last for months, and damage — reach 15 million rubles

Volunteer helpers… of criminals

And in Ryazan, scammers received funds by involving the victim in… solving a case of financial crimes. First, they call allegedly from law enforcement agencies: they say, with the help of a fake power of attorney in your name, they are trying to take a loan. Soon the victim receives another call — on this time from Central Bank, "employee" whom he asks to assist in the operation to capture the intruders — bank employees are suspected of fraud.

After that, the victim is instructed to go to the bank branch where the suspects allegedly operate and take a loan there. At the same time, nothing suspecting "assistant" warn that about "operation" no should know, up to criminal liability for disclosure of classified information. Since we people are responsible and intolerant to criminals, they, unfortunately are led to such a scheme.

In Volgograd region. telephone fraud has become a real scourge. According to law enforcement officials, the number of victims has been growing in recent years. But 12 March 2022  “anti-record” was set — On that day, the police received 12 applications from residents who gave 2 million 941 thousand dollars to the deceivers. rub.

— There is no limit to the impudence of scammers, — outraged Volzhsky resident Nikolai Petrenko. — The other day, I got a call allegedly from the police: they say they are investigating cases of leakage of personal data of a bank client. And offered to give their bank details — ostensibly to check whether                        turned out to be among the victims. And after all, someone will believe and call!

Trap for the stronger sex

But there are also unusual schemes. Thus, the Kuban police officers uncovered a group that posted profiles of women allegedly providing sexual services on the Internet. When potential customers called on the ads, the men imitated a female voice and asked to put a deposit on the card.

But & nbsp; often "decoy ducks" representatives of the weaker sex also work. A 33-year-old resident of Kaliningrad met a girl on a dating site. She stated that she was ready for a face-to-face date — for example, in theater, which she loves very much, and threw a link to buy tickets. The victim issued 2 tickets on the site for 2490 rub. The man made the purchase again, the money was debited from his account again, but the tickets never arrived. The  support service told him that there was a failure again, and they dropped a link for a refund. Having followed it, the man entered the details of the card and lost already 24.9 thousand. rub.

The scammers explained this as another mistake and offered to follow a new link, after which another 30 thousand thousands of money  rub. Thus, the total amount of lost funds amounted to 59 & nbsp; 925 & nbsp; rubles.

“Yes” and "no" don speak

Banks assure that in situations with fraud they are always on the client side protecting their interests. Can trust this? And how to act correctly if you still became a victim of online scammers?

Safety

Technological progress in Russia — due to her previous backwardness — turned out to be faster than in other countries, explains security expert Alexander Vlasov. And if the business (and simultaneously with scammers) mastered new digital technologies successfully, then the brain of the layman turned out to be less flexible. Therefore, to & nbsp; vulnerable to & nbsp; plan of category frauds & nbsp; we are not & nbsp; only older people, but & nbsp; and & nbsp; youth. "In society has not yet formed traditions of information security training" — the expert explains.

What basics of information security should be remembered once and for all? Vlasov names the following.

The first rule: Don talk to strangers. If you are called “from” the bank ” and report that they are allegedly trying to debit money from your account, then hang up the phone and call the bank yourself (or the department where you allegedly called from). Remember: bank employees (and even more so from law enforcement agencies) do not call customers on transaction issues, do find out account details and confidential data.

Second rule

strong>can be formulated like this: “yes” and "no" don speak. The thing is that your conversation can be recorded and used the next fraudulent call to a bank or other organization where the answering machine recognizes the voice, already on your behalf. Therefore, you can’t say “I”, pronounce your name and patronymic, answer with the word “yes” & nbsp; & mdash; a record of this can be used for identity spoofing with the help of the same answering machine. Don do not mention any numbers, expiration dates of the card, and the security code on the reverse side.

Third rule: if you guessed that the call is fraudulent, you can not tease, or, as it is fashionable to say today, “troll”; phone scammers. They will record your voice, and who knows where and how it will be used later.

Do the banks care?

The banks themselves are calm about telephone fraud — because they are not obligated to indemnify damages if the client agreed to this or other operation with his funds (even fraudulent) or divulged his card details.

However, in the last year, the number of technical thefts has greatly increased. We were partly saved from them by the Western blocking of the largest Russian banks. But in in other financial organizations, the threat has not disappeared. “This is a write-off of funds without the consent of customers, — told „AiF“ Head of „Internet Search“ Igor Bederov. — In the West, it is possible to transfer without confirmation by the cardholder. The scammers realized that they could steal through legal channels, and began to actively exploit this vulnerability».

The problem with such a write-off is that go and then prove whether it was allowed by you or not. The  bank may even pretend to investigate, but the reimbursement will most certainly be denied — the money went through a legal channel, and not some hackers appropriated it for themselves. You can apply to the court, but it is unlikely that you will be able to provide enough evidence.

Why are scammers so hard to catch?

As told «AiF» Experts of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, the situation in Ukraine and the imposed sanctions by the West have given rise to swindlers of all stripes to invent new and adapt old schemes of taking money from the population».

What else did they come up with ?

For example, methods of deception have appeared associated with the offer to receive loans at lower interest rates than in banks. There are also absolutely cynical cases: relatives of persons participating in a special operation in Ukraine are offered to buy various kinds of information. Money from accounts is stolen from the military personnel themselves, using their phones that they have lost.

jpg” height=”120″ width=”100″ style=”display: block;” />

And to commit remote theft, scammers use international sanctions imposed against Russia to their advantage. “Phone scammers began to actively exploit the current news agenda. In the past, strangers claiming to be bankers simply tried to get your card details. Now the pretext for this is information about the disconnection of Russian financial institutions from the international payment system. Other reasons to call — the likelihood of an allegedly upcoming complete ban on  cash withdrawals from accounts or a global blocking of banking operations as a result of the introduction of sanctions restrictions  — told official representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Irina Volk.

Some victims were persuaded to take a loan and transfer it to a safe "anti-crisis" an account actually owned by scammers. Another relatively new type of scam — investment in cryptocurrency. The scheme is similar: real real money goes to the accounts of scammers in a foreign bank, and in the exchange the unfortunate crypto-investor who believes them gets a zilch. In May, employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB detained one of these swindlers in Moscow. The CEO of the metropolitan organization, together with accomplices, promised a high income from investments in the digital payment system. They created the company's website, which contained information about paid training programs, having mastered which, citizens will certainly become successful investors. Advertising materials about the activities of the company were published even in the central media, and branches of the organization were opened in a number of foreign countries.

No less active scammers speculate on the understandable desire of people to save money when buying certain goods. For this, in particular, fake sites are created. Citizens are sent SMS with a message about sales and links to such sites. Victims put goods in a virtual basket, enter their card details for payment, after which money is withdrawn from their accounts.

Is it possible to avoid deception? In the case of online shopping — Yes. Pay close attention to the name and site address, as just one wrong letter can redirect you to the mirror site.

Is real grab their hand hand?

— Problems with catching scammers are primarily related to the fact that these people are skillfully encrypted: they operate through VPN servers, transfer stolen funds through foreign countries, and work through special programs. Now, by the way, they began to use new schemes of calls through short numbers in messengers, and it to trace them even more difficult, — explains lawyer, founder of the consulting group Vadim Tkachenko.

Another difficult moment — attackers use different psychological tricks, which then legally do not always allow them to be held accountable. They so skillfully manipulate a person that the victim actually makes the decision to transfer money. From a legal point of view, it is then difficult to prove that it was precisely the fact of fraud, and not a voluntary transfer of funds. This also applies to loans that people take under psychological treatment and immediately transfer money to other people's accounts.

Certainly, carelessness of people also plays into the hands of criminals: often we ourselves voluntarily transfer our codes, SMS and other ways to protect unauthorized persons, they only need to behave a little more formally with us. Sometimes people accidentally expose their card data or fix a transfer somewhere, all this information becomes known to third parties, and then only a technical question remains.

There are also completely official obstacles. For example, the legal impossibility of canceling a transfer. It's not even easy to track him down. To and often fraudulent schemes go through droppers — citizens and companies to the accounts of which the stolen money is withdrawn. As a rule, they receive their remuneration for this, but there are cases when they do not even suspect that they are acting in the  role of a kind of criminal “transit”.

The problem with droppers is now being addressed at legislators' level. The State Duma is discussing a bill, within the framework of which it is proposed to allow banks to freeze funds stolen by fraudsters from the accounts of Russians, and to block the accounts of intruders for up to a month. If it is accepted, it will greatly facilitate the return of money.

When will calls from "banks" be banned?

The law on prohibition of calls from replacement numbers was adopted a year ago. According to  the duties of telecom operators including blocking calls and SMS coming from abroad to Russia from swap numbers. Why doesn the situation not change for for the better?

As explained by “AiF” in the  Ministry of Internal Affairs, changes in the Federal Law "On communications" enter into force in stages until 2023  Since 1 May of this year, only one point has been earned so far: the telecom operator is obliged to transfer to the communication network of another operator the real, and not replacement number from which the call originated. The creation of a centralized system for tracking replacement numbers is also being discussed. In the structure of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in each region, special units have been created to investigate this type of crime. In the first quarter of 2022   more than 18 thousand cases  cases, which is on 2 thousand more than in January — March 2021  In order to compensate for the damage caused to the victims, the  property of the suspects (accused) was seized in the amount of more than 40 billion rubles.

In addition, a service for complaints about spam calls and SMS has been launched. The FAS expects that the number from which spam was received will be blocked within within 72 hours by all operators connected to the system.

Wives and mistresses of Peter I the Great. infographics

9 June, Peter I was born, who went down in history as a great reformer and Emperor of All Russia. Exactly 350 years have passed since the era of his reign. The Tsar of All Russia was remembered by the Russian people for his inconstancy of character, love for the Western way of life and reformism. A special part of his life was occupied by women. Peter I was very loving and had a special weakness for beautiful ladies. ” width=”130″ style=”display: block;” />

How many wives and mistresses did Peter I the Great have?

According to historians, the great sovereign cheated on his wives until the end of his days. In & nbsp; his life there were many fleeting hobbies that historians could not even fix. According to the official version, Peter I had two wives and six mistresses (one of whom later became his lawful wife).

Wives:

Evdokia (Praskovya) Lopukhina

The first wife of Peter I. The marriage of the tsar with Evdokia Lopukhina was personally approved by the mother of Peter I — Natalia Naryshkina. The latter went to the Lopukhins to make sure that the bride had no physical defects. The wedding was played in accordance with the norms of the ancient rite of the grand ducal times. The bride's dress weighed 20 kilograms, so she was led by the arm of the boyars.

The first three years, according to historians, the couple spent in love and harmony. However, this did not prevent the great king from cheating on his wife. Rumors about her husband's infidelity reached the queen instantly, but she turned a blind eye to this, finding peace in children. Evdokia bore the king two sons: Alexander died in infancy, Alexei — at 28 years.             — Anna Monswhich the king often visited. After the death of Natalya Alekseevna (Naryshkina), Peter I finally lost interest in his wife, and a few years later he ordered her to be tonsured as a nun. Evdokia was exiled to the Suzdal-Pokrovsky Monastery. Peter I completely crossed her out of his life, depriving her of all financial benefits. Later, for unknown reasons, the maintenance of the former queen improved, she left the monastery and moved to private rooms on the territory of the monastery. After some time, Evdokia was accused of having a love affair with the major of the recruiting set in Suzdal, Stepan Glebov. By order of the king, he was executed, and the former queen was again exiled to the monastery, where she stayed until the death of her ex-husband. Evdokia managed to return to  the royal court for a short while, when her grandson — Peter II, son of the deceased Tsarevich Alexei. But and Peter II soon died. Evdokia refused the rights to the throne, transferring them to the cousin of Peter II — Anna Ioannovna. The new queen, as a sign of gratitude, appointed Lopukhina the royal content. A year later, the first wife of Peter I died.

Ekaterina I Alekseevna (Marta Skavronskaya)

Second wife of Peter I. Marta Samuilovna Skavronskaya, who later changed her name and patronymic name to Ekaterina Alekseevna, first became the mistress of the king, then — wife. At the same time, Ekaterina Alekseevna was previously seen in love relationships with Field Marshal Sheremetyev, and also with Prince Menshikov >, who, at the request of the king, gave her to him.

Catherine became an indispensable companion of the Russian sovereign. She accompanied him on military campaigns, on trips for border.

The second wife of Peter I gave birth to the sovereign eight children: Catherine(1707–1708), Anna (1708–1728), Elizabeth (1709–1762), Natalia (1713–1715), >Margarita (1714–1715), Natalia (1718–1725). The queen gave the emperor and sons, but they died in infancy: Peter (1715–1719) and Paul (1 January 1717–14 January 1717);< /p>

Peter married Ekaterina in 1712 year. The newlyweds got married in the small chapel of Prince Menshikov. The choice of the Russian monarch was vigorously discussed among the people, Catherine was not recognized even by the court nobility. Many of contemporaries paid attention to her bad taste and low origin (presumably born in a poor family in Livland).

Ekaterina was 12 years younger than Peter. In recent years, the emperor began to get sick. The queen was still full of strength and passion. Willy Mons has appeared in her environment, who was the brother of the first mistress of Peter I — Anna Mons. So, Catherine and Willy started an affair. About their love relationship became known in 1724 year. At the end of this year, the Emperor of All Russia executed a rival and personally brought to his wife on a tray the severed head of her lover. Ekaterina fell into disgrace of her husband. She lost her maintenance, he also forbade the servants to take orders from her and completely deprived her of his disposition. However, the queen was with her husband until the last, and he died in her hands. However, Peter I before his death was still angry at         officially uttered words about transferring the title to his wife. She became a full-fledged ruler only thanks to the aristocracy, which fiercely fought for its rights on the Russian throne and hoped for the mutual support of the future queen. She was supported by and guards. In fact, Prince Menshikov and the Supreme Privy Council ruled the country.

Mistresses:

Anna Mons

The meeting of Anna and Peter I was organized by his closest friend Franz Lefortin 1690 or 1691 . According to other sources, they were already lovers by that time. Reliable information about the appearance of Anna Mons has not been preserved. However, her & nbsp; contemporaries claimed that she attracted men with sharpness of mind and & nbsp; coquetry. Moreover, their & nbsp; romance lasted during the period of the legal marriage of the king with & nbsp; Evdokia Lopukhina. The emperor did not hide his passion for his mistress Anna. Moreover, after a long diplomatic mission in Europe (which lasted from 1697 to 1698 year), he first went to Anna and only a week later — to lawful wife.

To to the same, Peter the Great spoiled his passion with gifts. With government money, the tsar built Anna a two-story stone palazzo house with eight windows with a majordomo, servants in liveries; appointed her an annual allowance of 708 rubles, and also gave her his portrait, studded with precious stones (estimated at a thousand rubles) and Dudinskaya volost in Kozelsky district (nowa — region of the Kaluga region). After the vows of Evdokia, the sovereign wanted to legitimize relations with his mistress, but Peter's close circle was against marriage with "a foreigner and the daughter of a wine merchant".

After ten years of their romance, it turned out that Anna had been cheating on the emperor with  Saxon envoy Koenigsek. Peter placed Anna and her sister Matryona (as an accomplice of treason) under house arrest. At this time, Prussian envoy Kaiserling became interested in the ex-tsar's mistress. He begged for her hands from the sovereign, but the meeting with Peter I and Menshikov ended in a quarrel: Kaiserling was let down stairs. An international scandal was brewing. However, later, in  1711 , thanks to the art of diplomacy of the Prussian king, Anna and Kaiserling got married. True, a few months after the wedding, the man died. Anna, for three years, sued her husband's older brother for an estate in Courland. She ended up winning the case shortly before her death.

Maria Hamilton

Maria Danilovna Hamilton appeared at the emperor's court in 1713 . Moreover, the slender marvelous beauty was noticed by the second wife of Peter Ekaterina Alekseevna, who later made her her maid of honor. Maria was cunning and far-sighted. She went on an adventure — the girl wanted to become the beloved of the king. Soon the emperor noticed the efforts of the young girl and invited  her to the royal chambers.

So she became the sovereign's mistress. After a while, their meetings stopped and Maria began to lead a frivolous lifestyle. In order to regain the favor of the king, the girl had an affair with a batman Ivan Orlov, from whom she subsequently found out information about the life of Peter I. However, relations with Orlov dragged on for several years. During this time, Hamilton realized that she would no longer achieve the favor of the sovereign and fell in love with Orlov. The latter quickly lost interest in her. Then, in order to keep her lover, she stole jewelry from  the queen and sold them, and with the proceeds she bought gifts for Orlov and covered his debts. But and it did not help. Ivan began to cheat with Peter's mistress — Avdotya Rzhevskaya.

Out of annoyance, the girl decided to come up with a fable about that Rzhevskaya had once gossiped with Orlov about "flaws" queens. In particular, allegedly Ekaterina Alekseevna eats wax, from which she gets acne on her face. Ivan Orlov, having learned about this, threw himself at the queen's feet and began to convince her of his innocence. Catherine called Hamilton to her and she confessed to everything, fully justifying her lover.

Moreover, according to some reports, Mary strangled the baby, who, possibly, could be the child of the king. After Peter I found out about all the machinations of the young girl, he ordered her to be executed, despite the persuasion of his wife. By order of the king, the girl was beheaded. Hamilton's head was kept in alcohol and kept in Kunstkamera.

According to one of legends, at the end of the 18th century Princess Ekaterina Dashkova, looking through the accounts of the Russian Academy of Sciences, found a large consumption of alcohol, which was used to store two severed heads (Maria Hamilton and Willy Mons) in large glass vessels. The heads were examined by Empress Catherine II and ordered to bury them in the same basement» where they were.

Avdotya Rzhevskaya (Evdokia Chernysheva )

The relationship between Peter I and Rzhevskaya began approximately in 1708 year, when the girl was 15 years old. After a year of their acquaintance, the tsar married Rzhevskaya to officer Grigory Chernyshov, leaving her in the status of his mistress. Avdotya gave birth to the king for 17 years of illegal relations of four daughters and three sons. But due to the riotous lifestyle, the ladies didn recognize the children as royal. By the same to their father could be her husband. But she enjoyed the special favor of the king, thanks to which her sons complained of a lot of money and even villages.

At the same time, having a husband and a constant lover, Rzhevskaya managed to be in a romantic relationship with other men. According to one of versions, she cheated on her men with Ivan Orlov — Maria Hamilton's beloved.

According to General Vilboa, Avdotya's promiscuity allegedly harmed the emperor's health. In narrow circles, she was accused of infecting the king with syphilis. However, this fact is refuted by the fact that the king's favorite after that gave birth to several more children and lived for 20 years.

Maria Cantemir

For the first time, the girl saw the king in 1717 . By that time, her entire family, after the death of her mother, moved from Moscow to Petersburg. Soon her father Dmitry Kantemirmarried Anastasia Trubetskoy. After that, Maria's life changed: she began to go out frequently, take part in balls and other entertainment events. At these celebrations, Peter noticed Mary. She, according to historians, was distinguished by curiosity and erudition, which attracted the king even more. They had an affair, although Maria's father planned to marry her to Prince Ivan Dolgorukov. Maria was seriously carried away by the emperor, but it is unlikely that Cantemir could take the place of an irreplaceable wife and his right hand — Ekaterina Alekseevna.

Dmitry Cantemir, having learned that his daughter was pregnant, tried to legitimize Maria's relationship with the Tsar. Not without the help of the well-known intriguer Count Pyotr Tolstoyhe sent a letter to Catherine, where he informed of his ignorance and non-involvement in the sovereign's extramarital affair with his daughter.

Later, the king went to war Persia, capturing with the retinue Maria and Dmitry. Catherine also accompanied Peter the Great. In  July 1722, the emperor left the pregnant princess in Astrakhan, as she did not feel well, and continued on his way to Persia. The war went on for several months. Catherine was afraid that her husband would leave her if Cantemir gave birth to an heir. However, the latter had a premature birth and the newborn died a few hours later. After that, the emperor lost interest in her.

Relations between Peter I and Cantemir resumed in 1724 the year when the tsar found out about the betrayal of his wife with William Mons. However, their  communication did not last long, soon the emperor died.
