They indicated that this decision may be temporary until such measures are introduced throughout the European Union.

Before that, an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers took place, where it was decided to suspend the visa facilitation agreement with Russia. This means that the visa fee has increased from €35 to €80, more documents will be required to obtain a visa, and the process itself will take longer. and France. Nevertheless, such measures were allowed to be introduced at the national level.

Earlier, former Ukrainian ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnik said that Merkel could mediate between Russia and Ukraine to resolve the armed conflict, despite criticism for her “disastrous policy” in relation to official Moscow.

Named the country that overtook Russia in gas supplies to Europe

Western media believe that Russia's rival is in no hurry to rush to the EU's aid.

Western media state that in the coming winter Europe could count on gas from Norway, which managed to overtake Russia in terms of the amount of fuel supplied to the EU countries.

However, according to Telegram, Oslo does not intend to sell fuel at low prices or offer a discount to EU countries that are not members of the union.

In 2022, Norway plans to produce 122 billion cubic meters of gas by the end of the year.

According to Minister of Economy Terje Aasland, In a conversation with Reuters, the country will maintain the same level of production until 2030, relying, among other things, on an agreement with the EU on expanding cooperation in the field.

At the same time, Norwegian exports are not threatened by an increase in demand in the domestic market, i.e. to. domestically, Norway relies on electricity from hydroelectric power plants.

Security agreements and an agreement with the EU, as well as large reserves of almost unclaimed gas, make Norway a very reliable supplier, analysts say.

The country still supplies Europe with almost all of its gas (the western part of the continent) and 70% of its oil. 5 pipelines with an annual capacity of 130 billion cubic meters work for this.

Oslo's reluctance to sell gas below the market value, which is breaking records this year, is an obstacle.

According to the Minister of Energy, one must remember a simple the principle of the market: rising prices with a shortage stimulates production growth and guarantees the flow of gas to where it is needed.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the author of the video in which “Gazprom” scoffs at fuel-poor Europe.

Help for the hermit. Students of RTU MIREA have been visiting Agafya Lykova for 8 years

Volunteers organize an expedition to the taiga hermit several times a year. They not only help her run the household, but also record stories from her life.

Taiga hermit Agafya Karpovna — not just the most famous representative of the Old Believers in the world. In the age of information technology, it has become a real cultural phenomenon. The last of the Lykov family — bearer of a unique history and traditions that many would like to touch. 

MIREA volunteers — Russian Technological University — have been helping her for the past eight years. During this time, students have become real chroniclers of the life story of Agafya Lykova from the moment when her name was already undeservedly forgotten, to one of the most dramatic pages of her life, where there was a fire at home, and even flew to the taiga coronavirus pandemic.

Volunteer student help

For almost thirty-five years, Agafya Karpovna has been living alone in the impenetrable forests near the Erinat River, which is on the territory of the Khakassky nature reserve. Here, after long wanderings, the Lykov family of Old Believers fled from persecution and dispossession. A father with four children was discovered in the summer of 1978 by geologists, when they were conducting aerial surveys in the very upper reaches of Abakan.

Today, the small farm of Agafya Lykova has become a real, albeit hard-to-reach, landmark of Khakassia. Goats, dogs, cats, chickens and a vegetable garden where she grows beets, peas, potatoes and cabbage. He sows rye and wheat, which he reaps with a sickle in autumn. Everything is like in the old days.

But the years take their toll, it becomes more and more difficult to manage at the zaimka at the age of 78, so the students of the Moscow RTU MIREA, known for its volunteer center with a developed wide network of volunteer expeditions, took under their guardianship throughout the country.

As the vice-rector of the university Igor Tarasov recalls, his personal story of acquaintance with Agafya began back in 2011, when one of the groups of volunteers went to Baikal to organize hiking trails. It was there that one of the employees of the Pribaikalsky National Park said that in the Khakass taiga, the lost hermit Agafya Lykova needed help: to prepare provisions for animals for the winter, and just chop firewood so that she could warm herself. Since then, every year he sends expeditions to the upper reaches of Abakan.

For the first two years, volunteers traveled by river, the 300-kilometer upstream journey took several days. We also had to drag the boats through creases and shallow rifts. The route is not for everyone: either you fall into a crevice in the forest, or the cable of the outboard motor breaks on snags sticking out of the crevice. The group came to Agafya drenched to the skin. Considering how much work there was to get Grandma ready for winter, an alternative way to get to her destination had to be found. So, a year later, they found sponsors who help the — delivered by helicopter.

Expeditions to the hermit have become a good tradition

As you know, the character of the hermit is firm, as it should be for people living in harsh conditions. But if you make friends with someone, then forever. This is what happened to the students of RTU MIREA. During the first visit, the volunteers spent only two or three days at Agafya's estate: they worked, talked, and made friends. And in the end, she went to accompany them to the boat for a kilometer and a half and gave them a pebble as a parting gift.

Now targeted expeditions to Lykova have become a good tradition of the university. It would seem how two diametrically different worlds could make friends: high technology, digital and hermitage? Students admit that they teach each other a lot. The guys are sawing firewood, making woodpile. And the girls even learned how to harvest grass with a sickle.

They showed Agafya how to use firecrackers to drive away bears from the house and livestock. Now every time she asks to bring pyrotechnics, such a non-trivial tool turned out to be indispensable in the household. As a sign of gratitude, he always treats the guys with products from his garden and bakes bread for them on yeast-free sourdough according to an old recipe.

But, as Vice-Rector Igor Tarasov, who oversees the university's volunteer center, admits, practical survival skills in harsh conditions — only a small fraction of what Agafya taught the young guys.

Somehow, the volunteers say, they went with her to the old house where Agafya and her family lived for 40 years. To visit the graves of relatives, they walked across the river and a steep mountain. A long hike with two overnight stays, but she conquered everyone with her stamina.

In such sorties, Agafya shares with the guys unique stories of her life, retells jokes and folk horror stories that she heard from her father. She told them the story of her birth and how Karp Lykovbegged for a daughter from the taiga. For eleven years of targeted expeditions, students have collected gems of information for a whole biographical book, where there is a chapter about a fire in the old hermit's house, and author's phrases: “Will you come again? Do you know? Was it there?».

Students adopt, talk — joking in the hallways of the university. They even made their own “slang dictionary” Agafya. For example, “Cavo-o-o” translated as surprised “What are you doing?”. With her melodious deliberate accent, each phrase is weighty and biting. And these are also important observations of students to the informational portrait of the hermit.

She, as the primary sources, knows all the news about them: for the first time she told about the mysterious illness — presumably coronavirus, which she got sick and recovered from last winter.

Sketches from the life of Agafya formed the basis of the video in Rutube

I marked important milestones with the same students: they visit her in early August, capturing two church holidays, and when Circumstances permit, in the winter on New Year's Eve. They bring gifts: nuts, fruits and dried fruits to keep longer. A winter visit takes only three or four hours, but each time they manage to ask Agafya about her life.

New Year, like her birthday, she does not celebrate — these are not Christian holidays, but on the days of church events, the guys are not allowed to work. Not allowed. But she herself rejoices, dresses up, congratulates, endures the six-hour service.

About Christmas, the volunteers recall, she said this: when we lived in a family, we didn’t give gifts to each other. It was not accepted, what kind of gifts are there in the taiga? But Christmas services were always held. And they are very long.

Sketches from the life of Agafia have already formed the basis of the music video in Rutube. The video, like the song, turned out to be heartfelt: “Is it true? Or it seems to me, and the snow spreads like commas. The soul will go into hibernation, the bear will turn gray in the snow. The footage, where the grandmother, smiling like a child, tells the guests one of her stories or looks around her house — taiga, enough for a large series of documentaries. His students are also actively filming and posting on the Rutube channel. They brought new shots from a recent expedition, from where they returned just the other day.

As they say in the MIREA MOUTH, Agafya has become a creative muse for students, but not only. This is a living example of diligence, fortitude, unbroken faith and perseverance. In the age of information business and even information gypsy, imaginary idols, Agafya Lykova becomes the right guide and inspiring role model for the new generation. Being the bearer of unique original traditions and values, she literally passes on historical memory, and spiritual experience, and intangible cultural heritage to the next generation.

Rosenergoatom: IAEA does not believe that Russia is hiding something

“I stepped into my destiny.” Pushkin’s strongest love was only 16 years old

220 years ago, on September 8, 1812 Natalia Goncharova was born. She could have been forgotten, as millions of her peers were forgotten. But Natalie had a different fate — and this fate ensured her place in history.

To the anniversary of the first beauty of St. Petersburg, as contemporaries called the wife of the poet Alexander Pushkin.

1. She was able to bewitch the poet with her beauty

Pushkin met his future wife in Moscow at the ball of the dancer Yogel.

It happened in  ; December 1828  Natalie was 16 years old. She has just begun to go out into the light.

“Never before with such a sad feeling did I come to a ball. A secret premonition tormented me and agitated my soul.Pyotr Vyazemskysaid something to me and pointed at young ladies who had first appeared in secular society. And suddenly, some force made me turn around.

I saw her — in a transparent cloud of flounces and laces, in a crowd of young admirers, surrounded by numerous relatives and acquaintances… I stepped towards my destiny», — the poet wrote.

2. They were undeservedly accused of  coquetry

Natalie Goncharova was a recognized beauty, but at the same time, she was deprived of the vanity and mannership that distinguished secular ladies. “The main charm of Natalie was the absence of any affectation and & nbsp; naturalness. Most thought she coquette, but the accusation is unfair.

— Merci, Monsieur, — she will say, thanking the gentleman for some kind of service, and will say it quite simply, but so sweet and with such a charming smile and looks so that the poor gentleman does sleep all night, thinks and looks for a chance once again hear this “merci, monsieur”. And          — recalled Nadezhda Yeropkina, who knew Goncharova from a young age.

3. Pushkin waited a year for his parents' consent

Six months after they met, in April 1829, Alexander Pushkin proposed to young Natalya. The girl’s mother answered evasively, didn’t give her consent, but didn’t stop the courtship of the famous poet. She argued such an indistinct answer by the young age of the bride. Pushkin waited a year before Goncharova's parents agreed to the marriage. The wedding took place on February 18, 1831. The couple got married in Moscow in the Church of the Great Ascension.

4. Changed eight apartments in six years

The young family settled in  Moscow, on Arbat, in house 53. But the couple lived here for only three months. At the wish of the poet, the newlyweds moved to Tsarskoe Selo near St. Petersburg. For the rest of their life together, the couple lived in Petersburg. At the same time, they often moved — in the six years allotted to their family by fate, they changed eight apartments. Their last refuge was the apartment on Moika, where the mortally wounded Pushkin was brought and where he died.

5. Called her "oblique Madonna"

Natalya Goncharova was reputed to be the first beauty of St. Petersburg, but this did not stop Pushkin from teasing his wife. Natalya had a slight squint, which, as contemporaries wrote, gave her a special charm and did not spoil her appearance at all. Pushkin, however, sincerely loving Natalie, sometimes called his wife “Slanting Madonna”. But he allowed himself such liberties only in the family circle. In poems the same that he dedicated to his wife, he called not other than the purest beauty, the purest example.

In marriage with Natalie Pushkin was absolutely happy. There is a lot of evidence for this in his letters to friends. So, the poet wrote to Pletnev: «I married — and happy; my only wish is that nothing in my life will change — can't wait for better. This state is so new to me that it seems I reborn».

6. The eldest daughter died of starvation

Four children were born in the family in six years of marriage. The eldest daughter at the time of the death of the poet was five years old, the youngest child was a baby.

The eldest Mary was born in 1832 . She grew up as a well-educated young lady. By the age of ten, she was already fluent in French and German. She graduated from the Catherine Institute and became the maid of honor of the Empress. Of all the children of Pushkin, Maria lived the longest. The daughter of the great poet died in Moscow, but already in Soviet Russia. She died in 1919 from starvation and cold.

Son Alexander was born in 1833 . He devoted himself to military affairs, rose to the rank of general. Participated in Crimean and Russian-Turkish wars. He was awarded the Order of St. Anna of the 2nd degree, the Order of St. Vladimir of the 4th degree, a golden weapon with the inscription “For” courage ” and many others. He was a father of many children (raised more than ten children). Died in 1914 .

Second son — Gregory — also devoted himself to military affairs. He retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel. He died in 1905 year.

The youngest daughter Natalia, born in 1836 year, like mother, was reputed to be a beauty. Married Prince Nicholas Wilhelm of Nassau. The only one of Pushkin's children, she died abroad, death overtook her in 1913 in Cannes.

7. She went to the village to mourn her husband

Natalie was 25 years old when Pushkin died. The poet's friends, describing the grief of the widow, wrote that they feared that she would go crazy from grief. Left with four children in arms and unswept grief, the young woman withdrew for several years to the village, where she led a solitary life. In letters to relatives, she admitted that only in prayer to God she finds relief in her grief over her dead husband.

8. The second marriage turned out to be happy

The need to educate children forced Pushkin's widow to return to Petersburg after a while. Seven years after the death of the poet, Natalie remarried Lieutenant General Pyotr Lanskoy. In this union, the couple had three common daughters. Natalie greatly appreciated that Lanskoy did not distinguish between his own children and Pushkin's children, whom he brought up as his own.

A letter from Goncharova to her second husband has been preserved, which speaks of her relationship with Lansky. “Empty words cannot replace a love like yours. Having instilled such a feeling in you with the help of God, I cherish them. I'm no longer at the age of and I'm dizzy with success. You might think that I wasted my 37 years. This age gives a woman life experience, and I can give real value to the words — wrote Goncharova. — Vanity of vanities, everything is just vanity, except for love for God, and, I add, love for your husband when he loves as much as my husband does».

9. Early death

Pushkin's widow died at less than 52 years. Her health began to deteriorate already in 1861. She was tormented by bouts of severe coughing. Doctors advised to change the climate. For the sake of this, a large family left the place and went to Germany. But this, alas, did not help. In the autumn of 1863, Natalia went to the christening of her grandson in Moscow and caught a bad cold. This led to inflammation of the lungs. Pushkin's widow died on November 26, 1863. And was buried in the necropolis of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra in St. Petersburg, where, after a while, general Lanskoy also rested next to her.

In the United States, they saw party interest in Biden’s request to allocate $ 12 billion to Kyiv

Republicans suspect partisan interest in Biden's request for $12 billion to Kyiv By requesting another aid package to Ukraine, US President Joe Biden may be acting in favor of the Democrats ahead of the midterm elections, and not in the interests of the country, the Republican Party said

< img class="aligncenter" src="" alt="The US saw party interest in Biden's request to allocate $12 billion to Kyiv"/>

The Republican Party of the United States suspects that President Joe Biden is guided by the interests of his own party, not the country, asking Congress for $ 11.7 billion in aid to Ukraine, Fox News reports.

According to the Republicans, the allocation of new funds to Kyiv calculated on the growing popularity of the Democrats ahead of the US midterm elections, which will be held in November.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed five measures to overcome the difficult energy situation in Europe, Politico reports, citing six diplomats.

Among the proposed measures— setting a price limit for Russian gas. Earlier, the newspaper wrote that the EC had proposed capping gas prices to €50 per megawatt-hour, warning that the European Union must be prepared to cut off fuel supplies from Russia in response to these actions.

According to Politico sources, the authorities of the EU countries disagreed on this issue: Hungary, Slovakia and at least two other countries did not support the initiative, Germany said it was “skeptical” refers to this idea, while a number of other states, including Poland and Italy, have come out in favor of price caps on all gas imported into the EU.

  • solidarity tax for high profit fossil fuel companies;

  • support for utility companies, including lending to them to place the funds necessary for trading on energy exchanges;

The latter proposal was well received, although the representatives of the EU countries would like to have guarantees that the income from such taxes will remain in the right country. “Clarifying the details will be important as power plants that are paid to turn on or off as needed to balance the grid often do so at the request of utilities across a national border,” writes the newspaper.

An emergency meeting of EU energy ministers will be held in Brussels on Friday. European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson told The Associated Press that the package is expected to be adopted next Wednesday, September 14.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 7 that Moscow would not supply energy to countries whose authorities make political decisions that are contrary to the terms of contracts for the supply of oil or gas. “We will not supply anything outside the scope of contracts. We will not do anything forced. And we will only have one— how to say in a well-known Russian fairy tale: “Freeze, freeze, wolf tail”, — said Putin during the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum.
