Media: Kazakhstan began to detain Russian trucks with goods from the EU

“Izvestia” found out the details of the detention of 8 motorways to Russia by Astana.

The media has learned that heavy trucks carrying goods from the EU countries to Russia are being detained in Kazakhstan.

According to Izvestia, about eight road trains are already being detained in the neighboring country for an indefinite period.


The media, citing the Association of International Road Carriers, reports that so far the number of cases has not reached a dozen, but the reasons for their retention are not indicated.

Vehicles are located in parking lots for violators of traffic rules, where storage is expensive. Also, road trains are delayed at the terminals at the local customs. A number of them, as ASMAP points out, were simply stopped on the road.

At the same time, the documents were confiscated from the drivers, and therefore they cannot leave Kazakhstan.

“News” specify that all road trains delivered goods to Russia from Europe, through Belarus and Kazakhstan.

The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation noted that the country's authorities imposed requirements on Russians that cannot be recognized as legal.

< p>According to the department, Astana requires drivers to provide documents for goods that were issued not to Russian carriers, but to their predecessors – European companies that transported goods across the EU to Belarus or the Russian Federation. However, the problem is that the companies do not transfer documents to each other.

Illegality, according to the Ministry of Transport, lies in the fact that the new rule of Kazakhstan itself violates the Agreement on International Road Transport. The agency demands to release the drivers, return their documents and not impose fines.

Due to the current situation, ASMAP recommends that Russian carriers refrain from transit for a while.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the media data appeared about billionaires who are part of Nazarbayev's entourage.

The Ministry of Labor did not support the idea of ​​spending maternity capital to buy a car

The Ministry of Labor did not support the idea of ​​using maternity capital funds to buy a car. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the first deputy head of the State Duma Committee on Education, Yana Lantratova.

The ministry's response to the deputy's request says that the implementation of this proposal could lead to abuse in terms of the use of mother capital funds and to the inefficient use of budgetary allocations from the federal budget.

It is also emphasized that the ability to use mother's capital to buy a car will only temporarily improve the living conditions of families with children, since the purchase of a car entails additional expenses from the family budget for its maintenance.

In addition, the possibility of buying a car for maternity capital carries a number of risks. The department explained that when spending these funds on the acquisition of property, a written obligation is provided for registration of property in the common property of spouses and children.

« car capital into the shared ownership of both parents, the task of observing the rights of children to own this property is not solved. At the same time, the establishment of a direct ban on the transfer or disposal of this property also does not ensure the observance of the rights of all family members, including children, in the event of a family breakup,” the document summarized.

Earlier, Russian leader Vladimir Putin signed a law that allows maternity capital funds to be used to pay for education provided by individual entrepreneurs. In particular, parents will be able to use this money to pay for a private kindergarten.

The lawyer explained how mobilization can take place if it is announced

Mobilization is a complex and multi-stage process. This was stated to aif.ru by lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky, who specializes in criminal cases and international law.

Recall that on September 20, the State Duma immediately approved in the second and third readings amendments to the bill, according to which the concepts of « mobilization”, “martial law” and “wartime”.

“Mobilization is a process that has many aspects. Military mobilization may be complete and may be partial. There was no complete mobilization even during the Great Patriotic War. Further, mobilization in a broad sense implies industrial, economic, organizational, political mobilization of forces, and only in the last place – the mass dispatch of conscripts to participate in hostilities,” the specialist explained.

Based on the new amendments, when announcing “mobilization” regime, “martial law”; or “wartime” for some crimes can face up to 15 years in prison. Such crimes include looting, voluntary surrender, and unauthorized abandonment of a unit.

“This is an absolutely normal practice. If you open the criminal code of the RSFSR, then all such articles provided for punishment up to the death penalty. Just imagine that someone commits such crimes during, say, the siege of Leningrad. I think such terms are quite adequate for the danger of what they have done,” concluded Agranovsky.

Earlier, Senator Olga Kovitidi, a member of the Federation Council committee on constitutional legislation and state building, said that amendments to introduce new concepts into the Criminal Code do not mean mobilization in Russia .

Business people. The Timchenko Foundation will support local communities in the outback

More than half of Russia's population lives outside the big cities. There are no huge budgets, and often there are no enterprises either. But there are initiative people — they unite in communities and themselves transform life around. The Timchenko Foundation presented its new strategy.

Uncle Petya Courchevel and others like him

People of action — Who are they? Are only businessmen or top managers who “privatized” in recent years, this phraseological unit? There are, after all, completely different people — they are out of business, but they are engaged in no less important matters. Each, for his part, makes life in his town or village better, more interesting, richer.

Lives in the Udmurt village of Debesy Sergey Vasiliev, works as a dispatcher for a local power plant, and plays chess in his spare time. No, not only for his own pleasure, but also trains the local children, teaches fellow villagers to teach chess, so that they also study with children. Through his (and now his associates) efforts, the whole of Udmurtia began to play chess with pleasure, and Debesy turned into its chess capital.

Pyotr Grigoriev, 78-year-old pensioner from Sorochinsk, Orenburg region — former engineer. Therefore, to this day, he is making something. Countrymen began to call him “Uncle Petya Courchevel” after he and his friends created a ski base there with their own hands. A lift was built on a slope suitable for descent. Both children and pensioners ride — free and healthy. True, Uncle Petya first checks their school grades for children — and allows only good and excellent students.

Marina Kabakovafrom the village of Kyzym, Beloyarsky District, Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug — Yugra — museum worker. At some point, she decided that the traditional culture of the Khanty could bring the village out of depression. With small steps, involving local residents and like-minded people, she was able to create an ethnopark where folk rituals and crafts are revived, where national holidays are held with the participation of even the smallest Kyzyms, where tourists come, providing additional income for the park.

< strong>Yulia Buldakova— from Tulun, Irkutsk region, the same one that the whole country learned about a few years ago when a terrible flood occurred there. She and her associates participated in the restoration of the city and breathed new life into it — revive the glass industry. In Soviet times, there was a large glass factory here, which provided the inhabitants with work, and the whole country — glass goods. In the 1990s, it went bankrupt and gradually collapsed. Julia found masters who did not forget the secrets of glass making. On the ruins of the factory, he collects glass “ingots”, which are used to make a variety of products — brooches, pendants, artistic dishes. Glass has become a “brand” again cities, a museum and a workshop have appeared, where they create new masterpieces and show guests how they are made.

Father of many children Yuri Zmeikovfrom Ryazan, he brings up both his own and adopted children. Knowing how difficult it is, he organized the Association of Foster Parents. And recently he became the director of the new Center for Family and Childhood in the village of Polyany, Ryazan Region, where children and their parents can receive support, as well as attend various circles and sections.

The Elena and Gennady Charitable Foundation supports such extraordinary people in business Timchenko. All of them at different times received grants from the foundation, and now they have become the heroes of the film almanac “People of Action”. Directed by Vladimir Golovnevwith great love for the characters, subtle humor and high professionalism, he created and combined 5 short stories into one documentary.

Together with the heroes of the film, other “people of action” who came to Moscow from different regions of the country watched it in one breath. It is a pity that there are no such heroes of our time and their stories on our federal TV channels. After all, they deserve to be known about, and their results would inspire others and encourage them to start doing business too.

In the meantime, the film is posted on RuTube.

Active communities of small territories

The people gathered in the hall, — these are mainly long-term partners of the fund, its friends and beneficiaries. It was to them that Chairman of the Supervisory Board Ksenia Frankand CEO of the fund Maria Morozova presented the new strategy on September 15.

Over the 12 years of operation, the Timchenko Foundation has supported 4,461 projects with a total budget of RUB 6.9 billion. They were carried out in 80 regions of the country and were carried out as part of the strategic programs: “Older Generation”, “Sport”, “Family and Children”, “Culture”. 

General Director of the Timchenko Foundation Maria Morozova presented the results of 12 years of work. Photo: Timchenko Foundation

In the course of the work, it became obvious that attention should be paid to small areas, where even small projects give impetus to development. It became clear that it is important to support local communities, because it is together that people achieve impressive results. It became clear that local activists are a good support in the regions.

There have also been external changes — for example, a number of topics that the foundation started were taken over by the state and the non-profit sector. And the new challenges facing the country also require a review of actions. For these reasons, the fund decided that it was time to reconsider the strategy.

“We believe in a society in which every person has the opportunity to live with dignity in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual support. We go where there are the least resources, we solve complex social problems. We create conditions for the development and support of those who treat people around them responsibly, acutely feel their problems and spare no effort to improve their lives, — this is the updated mission of the foundation, which was voiced by Maria Morozova.

Ksenia Frank, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Timchenko Foundation, spoke about the new strategy. Photo: Timchenko Foundation

Now the fund will focus on work in small areas (up to 200 thousand inhabitants). There, families' incomes are 30% less than in the city, the lack of infrastructure is growing, and people are leaving. But those who remain, not wanting to join the flow of the metropolis, — much closer to each other, and this helps to form active and ready-to-do communities. 

Further work of the foundation will be carried out in two directions: “Care in the immediate environment”; and Child and Adolescent Development. Focus — on vulnerable older people and families, children and adolescents. 

Local communities, on whose potential the Timchenko Foundation stakes, can do a lot, including helping those who are close to them and need help. And they know it better than social services — because everyone is on the lookout. The pandemic has clearly demonstrated what a powerful potential lies in them. 

This means that communities are able to help families in crisis cope with the problem so that their children stay at home, and not placed in social institutions. Now in the country, 20% of families (3.5 million) need help, but, unfortunately, they do not always receive it in a timely manner, according to the fund, so the problems are aggravated, and children can even be taken away by guardianship authorities: 28 thousand children today are temporarily placed in social institutions.

Such communities can also help the elderly. After all, 53% of people over 65 in our country are lonely, some have poor eyesight and cannot buy food, some do not go out in winter, afraid to fall, and the majority do not have enough strength to do the cleaning or chop wood. But only 3.6% of older people in need receive support from social services.

It's all — about the first direction of further work. And within the framework of the second direction — “Development of children and adolescents” — the fund will help the younger generation to fully develop in local communities. After all, more than half of all schoolchildren in the country study in small areas where there are not enough “significant adults”, high-quality additional education and leisure. By supporting projects in education and sports, training mentors, and involving local communities in working with children and adolescents, the foundation will help change this situation. 

Ksenia Frank and Maria Morozova believe that the local communities that receive support will become more active , more noticeable, more successful — After all, the fund already has real results. During his work, he supported 900 organizations across the country. And its “graduates”, some of whom gathered for the presentation of the new strategy and the film almanac “People of Action”, will become mentors for other NGOs, TOSs, and initiative groups, passing on their experience to them. And the foundation's new slogan “Time to act together” reflects the belief of his team in the power of unification and solidarity.

The State Duma is considering the issue of transferring icons from museums to the church

The State Duma is preparing amendments to laws that will allow icons from museums to be donated to churches, Interfax reports.

This was announced by the deputy chairman of the Duma inter-factional working group on improving legislation on the protection of Christian values Sergei Gavrilov.

According to him, there are currently tens of thousands of icons in the storerooms of museums, which are “inaccessible to believers and no one sees them.”

The deputy recalled that the icons, located in museums are a national treasure that is owned by the state.

“So it is necessary that the obligations for the restoration and protection of these icons remain the functions of the state,” Gavrilov noted.

Earlier it was reported that the head of the All-Russian motorcycle club “Night Wolves” Alexander Zaldastanov (Surgeon) handed over the icon of St. Peter of Cetinje from Montenegro to the Russian Orthodox Church.

I gave the word to Alena. Zhanna saved the children of a deceased neighbor, and they were returned to the DPR

Story Women in War

Two orphans, guardianship authorities g. Shakhtyorsk (DPR) was returned from Russia to the republic engulfed in fire. Officials, under various pretexts, do not allow the neighbor of the deceased mother, who saved the babies, to arrange guardianship.

Volunteer from Taganrog Larisa helped the family of Zhanna Lukoyanovaand to leave the combat zone and settle in Russia.

But all her works have not yet brought results — children from Russia, by decision of the guardianship authorities of the city of Shakhtersk (DPR), were forcibly sent back to Donetsk People's Republic.  it's hard to believe — but it is so.

Thanks to volunteer Larisa, I phoned Zhanna, who returned with family from Russia to Mariupol to find the children of a neighbor…

The dead 24-year-old Alena Skvortsova, her two children were saved by Zhanna's family. Photo: Personal archive of Zhanna Lukoyanova.

The death of a pregnant Alena

Zhanna Lukoyanova lived in a dormitory in the city of Mariupol at 14 Gugelya Street. Ukrainian troops.

In April, her family — mother, invalid without a leg, second cousin, two minor children — and about 40 more people were escaping the bombings in the basement of the dormitory.

In the her neighbor Alena Skvortsova, pregnant at fifth month, with two small children.< /p>

7 April Alyona came out of the cellar to put the kettle on the fire. At that time, a Ukrainian shell exploded in the yard.

Alena's legs were hit by shrapnel. She crawled to the entrance to the basement, the last person she saw was Zhanna's eldest son Vladislav. She asked the young man to take care of her children.

The 24-year-old girl died from blood loss. It was not possible to bury her under constant shelling, so the body was covered with a blanket, she was left lying on the street near the house.

So her children, Artem and Daria Skvortsovs(5 and 6 years), were orphaned.

 I made a promise to myself not to leave Alena's children to the arbitrariness of fate, to take custody of them myself, because they have no relatives, — says aif. ru Zhanna. —  Artem and Daria grew up in me before my eyes. Alena herself is from an orphanage and it’s unlikely that she wished such a fate for her children.

Zhanna adds: “I dream of Alena, she asks to pick up the children.”

Search for Artem's documents and Dashi

Allied forces evacuated Zhanna and other inhabitants of the basement to the village of Bezymennoe (DPR).

The woman reported the situation to the nearby administration of Shakhtersk (DPR) and asked to give her temporary guardianship. Officials promised that they would make temporary guardianship.

A month later, Zhanna was informed that a birth certificate for the children was needed to complete the paperwork. But these papers remained in the basement.

May 20 Zhanna with sister and son went to Mariupol to find Artyom and Dasha's documents.

“We made our way through checkpoints, at this time” Azov people “surrendered” to Russian troops, “ — the woman remembers. — The Russian military didn let us go to the dormitory, they said that it was mined there. I explained to the officer that it was very necessary, because the children suspended — you need to find a  birth certificate».

Zhanna convinced the people in epaulettes, they were given an accompanying military man. To much disappointment, they didn found no documents in the basement, because it was total chaos.

Jeanne noticed that Alena's body continued to lie, covered with a blanket. A month and a half has passed since her death.

No body — no “document of death”

It was problematic to take the kids to Russia without documents. Therefore, the next time Zhanna arrived in Mariupol on June 4th, when the city was finally liberated.

In the basement, she found certificates of the birth of children!

The woman visited the police, where she explained the situation and asked Alena to be buried and issued a death certificate to Jeanne.

It turned out that the Ministry of Emergency Situations took the body, he was taken to the morgue. Then the ends broke off.

“To this day we can't find where Alena was buried, — Jeanne continues. — It became known that a DNA test was taken from the deceased before burial. Therefore, we with children traveled from Shakhtyorsk to Mariupol to take the DNA of children — this, I hope, will help to establish the place of burial of Alena.

The family provided birth certificates to the administration of Shakhtyorsk, but officials also demanded a certificate of death of the mother in order to formalize guardianship.

Until now, the place of Alena's burial has not been determined, which means there is no evidence of death. 

The children were returned to the war

The Lukoyanov family wanted to leave for Russia, the main reason — 70-year-old mother Zhanna Lyudmila Arkadyevnarequired medical attention. By this time, volunteers from Taganrog, Russia, were already helping the Lukoyanovs. Among them, the previously mentioned volunteer Larisa, and her compatriot — Taganrog resident Irina Stukalova from  the charitable organization  Good in Taganrog».

A family with two orphaned children moved into Taganrog, and then, after the distribution of migrants, they were poisoned to a temporary detention center (TAC) Kochubeevsky district of the Stavropol Territory.

As it turned out, this was a mistake. In  the TAC, the children were taken away from their family, they were identified in the orphanage in the village of Balakhonovskoe (Stavropol Territory).

"When we visited the kids, Artem and Dasha cried, asked to go home" — Zhanna says.

And then something strange happened — a decree came to the Stavropol orphanage, according to which the children must be deported to DPR…

That is again in the war zone, from where with with such great difficulty they were taken out.

When the family found out that the children had been deported to the DPR, everyone returned to their native Mariupol.

“Guardianship is unhappy that they took the children to Russia”

In Mariupol, the administration provided Lukoyanov with housing in a private house while the owners are away. Their  dormitory cannot be restored  — building will be demolished. The family cannot take away personal belongings there, because the second floor lay on the first floor and completely burned down.

"I assume that Shakhtersk's guardianship was unhappy with the fact that I took the children to Russia. They didn’t forbid it, but when I told the guardian that we were leaving for Russia tomorrow, she replied, “Go, but no one will let you out.” I I have confirmation of these words in SMS» — says Larisa.

Today, the Mariupol guardianship must submit an official request to the administration of the Kochubeevsky district of the Stavropol Territory to find out where the children are, where they were deported.

Zhanna is not told where the children are, but the family assumes that they were sent to an orphanage in Khartsyzsk (DPR).

According to  the they monitored the addresses of orphanages in the republic, and  ;the safest place — Khartsyzsk. The woman believes that the kids were hardly taken to Donetsk, where shelling does not stop, but Khartsyzsk — this is a deep rear.

Jeanne is not sitting idly — she filed documents for the recognition of the mother of the children as missing, which will give a chance to receive a document about Alenina's death.

A woman monitors the bases of buried Mariupol residents, morgue logs and photographs of unidentified corpses. So far, to no avail, where Alena is buried — not known.

«You see, I now have the meaning of life — fulfill a duty to the deceased Alena, — Jeanne confesses. — Any mother wouldn't abandon children under such circumstances. I knew Alena for many years, lived on the same floor, I have a second room, she — sixth. Her children grew up in me before my eyes».

The Presidential Commissioner for Children's Rights Maria Lvova-Belovaresponded to Janna's request to help her 

"The case of the children of the deceased Alena Skvortsova goes beyond all limits of human understanding, — she replied to Jeanne.        adults took many orphan children to Russia from the war zone, and everyone was given the right to guardianship without any problems. I ready to protect your interests. You saved        send  send requests to the head of the orphanage   ;20 "Hope" (Stavropol Territory) and Head of the Service for family and children g.

Let's say the volunteers of the Mos Volunteer on a permanent basis help disabled people go in for sports and take part in competitions. Volunteer Olga Novosyolova strives to ensure that any person can experience moments of happiness at the finish line, so at the “Without Borders” race a woman fled with a blind Mikhail.The man managed to confidently overcome the 5 km distance, holding on to a special rope – paraligament.

By the way, in 13 city shelters – 16 thousand furry inhabitants.

Academician Krasnikov: “Only science can solve a whole range of problems”

The Russian Academy of Sciences has elected a new president. It was academician Gennady Krasnikov— specialist in the field of physics of semiconductor devices, general director of JSC “Research Institute of Molecular Electronics”; and Chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC Mikron. In the elections held on September 20, which were held by secret ballot, he was ahead of Dmitry Markovich, director of the Institute of Thermal Physics. SS Kutateladze of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

“Attitude towards science is changing”

The new head of the Russian Academy of Sciences will hold this position for the next five years. The scientific community is inspired: Krasnikov — head of the country's priority technological direction for the development of microelectronics, which means that the state will not deprive the academy of attention.

Speaking at the General Meeting of the Russian Academy of Sciences, held in Moscow, Krasnikov shared his plans. The key point of his — to restore the authority of the academy, to make sure that it actively interacts with state authorities and that this interaction is of a close nature. 

“The reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2013 did not arise from scratch. We couldn't prevent it, — he said. — I have a strong feeling that we continue to lose our credibility. We have left the state decision-making system. But after the February events, the situation in Russia was fundamentally different, and a window of new opportunities opened up for the academy. If earlier the problems of science were treated calmly, because we could buy everything, now it has become clear that only science can solve a whole range of problems. Attitudes towards science are changing, and serious attention is being paid to the potential of our institutions.

Krasnikov believes that many institutes should be returned under the wing of the Russian Academy of Sciences (recall that during the reform they were transferred to the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education and Science), and social and legal support for members of the academy should be increased. Honored scientists, in his opinion, should be treated accordingly at various levels. 

Another point of the program is devoted to the fact that the Russian Academy of Sciences should help strengthen the defense of the state. “In this segment of its activity, academic science should maintain the established stable and fruitful ties with the military-scientific complex of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which will make it possible to exclude military-technical surprise from potential and real high-tech opponents of Russia by organizing advanced fundamental research aimed at neutralizing more and more advanced means of armed struggle created in foreign countries, — said in Krasnikov's election program. — The role of academic science is especially important in the expert assessment of possible ways to effectively counter these means at the optimal cost of the state, primarily on the basis of well-thought-out asymmetric approaches that allow us to avoid drawing our country into a new round of the arms race, which may have negative economic and social consequences for us. consequences».

Finally, the new head of the Russian Academy of Sciences claims that he knows how science needs to interact with industry and introduce research results into the real sector of the economy. «Science — applied. The only difference is that some applications appear after 5-10 years, while others — in 50-100, — he says.

“It will take about 3-5 years before the first results appear”

Aif.ru has collected the most interesting statements by Gennady Krasnikov from his latest speeches. 

About why he decided to run for president of the Russian Academy of Sciences:

“My decision was influenced by the situation on February 24th. I realized that a lot of things in our state are changing significantly before our eyes. And I thought that this is a moment when we can change quite a lot, including in the Academy of Sciences itself, enter it into the system of state decision-making and significantly increase its authority, which, unfortunately, continues to fall. < /p>

About future work with the country's leadership:

“The President of the Russian Academy of Sciences should work more actively with the leadership of the country. These should not be calls on duty, but close communication, discussions, so that the president understands what the leaders have in mind, and so that they understand what the position of the President of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences is. This is a daily and very necessary work. If everyone sees that the president works at this level, then other members of the academy will be able to work with departments, with deputy ministers, with heads of departments.

In our country, management often closes on the middle link. We interact incorrectly with public authorities, and this leads to the fact that we lose respect. If we do not agree on some document, but it still comes out, and at the same time we shrug, — This not normal. It's not respecting yourself or others. You can't let yourself be ignored. 

On your personal qualities:

“I believe that the experience that I have, and I have been the director of a large institute for more than 30 years, will be useful to me. I can defend my point of view. I have many examples when I defended my position in the presence of VLadimir Vladimirovich Putin, and I know how to convince. 

About sanctions and import substitution: 

“These sanctions have a dual role. About 8 years ago it was difficult to talk to the government — to many questions related to the development of domestic technologies and developments, we were answered: „Why do this? We can easily buy everything. We are surrounded by friendly countries. But now I see how much is changing in our line of work: approaches, the very format of economic relations, the philosophy of attitude to the situation on the part of the government. 

It became clear that we need to develop our own, domestic. We see that all this is in demand, we are asked: „Where are your ideas? Let's implement!“ And I see that our leaders, represented by the prime minister and vice-premiers, are in a different mood. Our time is coming, especially for those who are engaged in research and development.

About Russian microelectronics:

“The main sanctions hit us in the field of microelectronics. By the way, the institute where I work, the Research Institute of Molecular Electronics, was one of the first to be included in the sanctions list of the US Department of Commerce.

Microelectronics — it is a whole complex of directions. It is not only the creation of „pure“ rooms where we have to produce integrated circuits. It's an entire industry. These are especially pure materials, electronic engineering, appropriate software. Unfortunately, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, these areas did not develop in our country.

It is necessary to create a lot, even the production of special containers, because any gas flow in contact with not quite „clean“ container, immediately contaminated. We must actually re-develop domestic electronic engineering, create new equipment for the production of integrated circuits. That is, to create an industry that did not exist for many years. And these programs are planned. The management has an understanding, and I think that it will take about 3-5 years before the first tangible results appear.

We try to evaluate microelectronics by the goods on the shelf: where do we have our „Apple“, where is the household technique? This is such a painful topic. And they do not think about the technologies used in the military-industrial complex. Meanwhile, our new weapons, which President Putin also talks about, use technologies where we are world leaders.

The White House considered the referendums in Donbass an insult to the principles of sovereignty

USA, Poland, Germany, France, Estonia do not recognize referendums on joining the republics of Donbass, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions to Russia

The United States will never acknowledge the attempt annex parts of Ukrainian territories to Russia, said National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

Holding referendums on joining Russia in the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, as well as in the territories controlled by Moscow in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions “will not give it additional advantages at the negotiating table,” Sullivan said. “These referendums are an insult to the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity,” he pointed out (quote from Reuters).

The assistant to the US president added that later, American leader Joe Biden, during his speech at the UN General Assembly, would call on the world community to resist Russia's actions in Ukraine.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz spoke in a similar vein, also emphasizing that the FRG does not recognize “fictitious referendums”, and their holding does not comply with international law and agreements. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on his Twitter expressed confidence that if the referendums take place, this will lead to an escalation of hostilities.

French President Emmanuel Macron is confident that the international community will not recognize referendums. The vote will have no legal consequences, he said, calling the whole process a “parody.” “If the idea of ​​a referendum in the Donbass weren’t so tragic, it would be funny,” — Macron believes.

Polish President Andrzej Duda, in turn, said that voting in these territories “costs nothing”; (quote from Reuters), and Estonian Prime Minister Kaya Kallas also indicated that Tallinn does not recognize its results. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for peace between Moscow and Kyiv “on the basis of territorial integrity and taking into account the independence of Ukraine.”

“I would say that the opinion of Duda and other European talkers on the issue of referendums is worth nothing. That's exactly it, — Andrey Klishas, ​​chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, commented on these statements.

Referendums in the republics of Donbass and Russian-controlled parts of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions should be held from 23 to 27 September. The Russian State Duma has already declared its readiness to support the leaders of these regions. Ukraine promises to return the lost territories and insists that in the event of a vote, there will be no more opportunities for dialogue with Moscow.

The nationalization of the largest German energy company Uniper will cost the German budget at least €8 billion, Reuters reports, citing company information.

Berlin intends to buy out Finnish Fortum's stake in Uniper (78%), after which the state's total share in its capital will be about 90%. The new financial injections will bring the total bailout package used to stabilize the company to at least €29 billion, according to Reuters.


Uniper announced that it is in talks with the government and Fortum to amend its July bailout program, which has proved inadequate given soaring gas prices. “It is assumed that the federal government will receive a significant controlling stake in Uniper,” said the company, noting that the final agreement has not yet been worked out.

Previously, Fortum provided an €8bn loan to Uniper, according to Bloomberg.

«We think it is important that Fortum returns the €8bn funding it provided to Uniper, and in general that Finnish taxpayers do not incurred unreasonable expenses because of this, — said Tytti Tuppurainen, Minister for Public Companies of Finland.

In exchange, the German authorities planned to receive a blocking stake of up to 30% of Uniper, Bloomberg and Handelsblatt sources said. Reuters' interlocutors specified that a share of 15–30% was being discussed.

Uniper— one of the largest power generation companies in the world, it is the third largest zero-carbon electricity producer and the second largest nuclear electricity producer.

And not only our country. Since after their implementation and the acceptance of new territories into Russia, the geopolitical transformation in the world will become irreversible,— wrote Medvedev.

Co-author of amendments to the Criminal Code called unjustified fears of mobilization

The head of the defense committee, Kartapolov, called unjustified fears that the amendments to the Criminal Code, introducing the concepts of “mobilization”, “martial law” and “wartime”, are preparing the basis for general mobilization

< img class="aligncenter" src="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/media/img/0/27/756637018762270.jpg" alt="The co-author of the amendments to the Criminal Code called the fears of mobilization unjustified" />

Andrey Kartapolov

The adoption of amendments to the Criminal Code of Russia, introducing the concepts of “mobilization”, “martial law”; and “wartime” does not mean that general mobilization will be announced, said the chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, Colonel-General and former Deputy Defense Minister Andrei Kartapolov in an interview with Parliamentary Newspaper.

The State Duma on Tuesday adopted amendments to the Criminal Code in the second and third readings, which propose to consider periods of mobilization, martial law and wartime as aggravating circumstances in the commission of crimes. Their authors were deputies from all factions, including the head of the Defense Committee Andrey Kartapolov, for Security and Anti-Corruption — Vasily Piskarev, for international affairs —Leonid Slutsky, as well as senators.

Answering the question of how justified the fears are that the adoption of these amendments is the preparation of a basis for mobilization, the deputy said that they « absolutely unjustified.

“There will be no general mobilization. The president has spoken about this more than once and is directly speaking through his press secretary Dmitry Peskov and many other politicians at the federal level. “Law” not equal to “mobilization”, — says Kartapolov.

According to him, the amendments are adopted “not specifically for a special military operation”, but in order to “execute them for a long time”, at least until the need for them disappear.

The parliamentarian also explained that wartime is considered “the period when the state conducts hostilities with the help of its armed forces in one or more directions.” At the same time, martial law can be introduced both throughout the country and in individual regions— for example, where hostilities are directly taking place in order to “create conditions for the fulfillment of the tasks of the armed forces and other formations.”

Speaking about whether it is planned to declare martial law or wartime now, Kartapolov did not rule out such a possibility in certain regions.

“Watchers, although this is special, it is all is a military operation. Therefore, I do not rule out that in some areas such a provision may be introduced, — he said.

In Russia, there are separate federal laws “On mobilization training and mobilization”; (N 31-FZ) and “On martial law” (N 1-FKZ).

Mobilization can be announced both before the introduction of martial law, and during the introduction of martial law. It can be general or partial. Citizens who are in the reserve, but who do not have the right to a deferment, are subject to conscription.

The reason for the introduction of martial law are:

  • the invasion of a foreign state into the territory of Russia, the occupation of any parts of it;
  • bombardment by foreign armed forces of the territory of Russia;
  • blockade of ports or coasts of Russia;
  • attack by the armed forces of a foreign state on the Russian Armed Forces, regardless of their location;
  • action a foreign state that allows another state to use its territory to commit an act of aggression against Russia;
  • sending by a foreign state of armed gangs, groups, irregular forces and mercenaries to carry out aggression against Russia.

< p>As an example, the head of the defense committees cited “regions bordering Ukraine, which are shelled almost daily.” “It is necessary to protect our peaceful citizens there, it is necessary to apply special measures of armament” the same air defense. Of course, this will impose certain difficulties that can be solved as efficiently as possible only under martial law,— he thinks.

Martial law in the border areas, if introduced, will be similar to “the regime of the counter-terrorist operation, which was declared in the border areas during the first and second Chechen wars,” Kartapolov explained.

“In the Stavropol Territory, for example. During martial law, all power in the region is completely transferred to the military administration, restrictions are imposed on the movement of citizens— same curfew,— a special mode of operation of critical infrastructure facilities, a ban on entry and exit, and so on, — he specified.

Under wartime, according to Art. 18 of the Federal Law “On Defense”, is understood as the period from the moment a war is declared or the actual start of hostilities. Martial Law — a special legal regime introduced on the territory of Russia or in its individual areas by the president with the approval of the Federation Council in the event of aggression against the country or an immediate threat of aggression.

The term “fighting” determines the organized actions of military units in a certain period of time to carry out combat missions — in particular, they include special military operations, Senator Olga Kovitidi explained to RBC. Fighting is not necessarily related to martial law or a state of war, she added. Armed conflict refers to a limited-scale armed conflict between states or parties.

In particular, the authors of the amendments proposed to toughen criminal liability for “non-compliance by subordinates with the order of the chief”; during a period of martial law, in wartime or in conditions of an armed conflict or combat operations, “as well as refusal to participate in military or hostilities”, for unauthorized abandonment of a unit, for desertion. In addition, criminal punishment is provided for voluntary surrender, looting and disruption of the state defense order.

After the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine, the Russian side repeatedly denied plans to declare mobilization. Amendments on mobilization were adopted by the State Duma on the same day as the announcement of referendums on joining Russia in the DPR, LPR, as well as the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions controlled by the Russian military— everywhere voting is scheduled for September 23 & 27. The US and the EU said they did not recognize the results of the referendums, in Kyiv they said that the results of the vote “will not change anything.”

Vučić warned of the imminent outbreak of a conflict on the scale of World War II

Vučić warned of the outbreak of a conflict on the scale of World War II in one or two months. The Serbian president pointed out that now the role of the UN in the world has weakened and everything is decided by world powers. He predicts that Western countries will be in conflict with Russia and China max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Aleksandar Vucic

In the coming months, a military conflict comparable in scale to the Second World War may begin in the world, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told the local RTS television channel on the eve of his speech at the UN General Assembly.

“I assume that we are approaching a great military conflict from the stage of a special military operation, and now the question is where the borders are and we will enter after a while, and maybe in a month or two, into a great world conflict that we have not been since the Second World War, — Vučić said.

According to the Serbian President, the role of the UN in solving world problems has now weakened “the great powers have taken over and de facto destroyed the order of the UN in the last few decades.”

Vučić pointed out that for “small” countries like Serbia, there is no “good and easy news” right now. He suggested that relations between the West and Russia, and between the West and China, would only continue to deteriorate. Belgrade, he said, has to maintain relations with all parties in order to defend its own interests.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg noted that the conflict in Ukraine— it is “the most dangerous situation since the Second World War”, and said that “Russia cannot be allowed to win.”

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, in response, said that Stoltenberg had a “bad memory”; and he forgot who won that war. “History will repeat itself”, — considers the ex-president. He later spoke of the risk of world war with a quotation from the Bible: “The first angel sounded.” However, Medvedev expressed the hope that the “apocalypse” will not come.

Peskov did not see the prospects for a diplomatic settlement with Ukraine

Peskov: there are no prospects for a diplomatic settlement of the conflict in Ukraine Now there is no such possibility, according to the Kremlin. UN Secretary General António Guterres recently spoke about the minimal chances for a peace agreement. Kyiv is against the resumption of negotiations

Dmitry Peskov

There are currently no prospects for a diplomatic settlement of the conflict in Ukraine, he told Interfax Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

The Russian authorities emphasize that the special operation will continue until the set goals are achieved. Among them, Moscow called the protection of the population of Donbass and “demilitarization and denazification”; Ukraine. At the same time, the Russian side has been talking about its readiness for negotiations since they were frozen in the spring.

President Vladimir Putin assured on September 16 that Russia will make every effort to keep the conflict at bay. Ukraine stopped as soon as possible, but Kyiv, according to him, refuses to negotiate.

Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, explained at the end of August that Kyiv opposed the negotiations because they would be a “death sentence” for Ukraine. He expressed the view that Russia would take advantage of any pause to recuperate and step up the offensive, and in the absence of negotiations, Moscow would focus on a “war of attrition.” The country's Foreign Ministry pointed to the risk of negotiations in the current situation, as it “will again be the language of ultimatums” from Moscow. The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly said that they will not make territorial concessions and will be ready for dialogue only after the situation at the front changes.

According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the longer the resumption of the negotiation process is delayed, the more difficult it will be for the Ukrainian authorities to reach an agreement. Peskov has previously stated that Russia will talk with Ukraine about how Moscow's conditions will be met.
