Climatologist: warming could cause regular autumn hurricanes in Russia

Global warming, which has caused frequent spring hurricanes in Russia, can lead to regular autumn hurricanes, said climatologist Alexander Rodin to

"Spring hurricanes have become practically the climatic norm in central Russia. And, perhaps, there will be regular autumn hurricanes, also associated with the restructuring of atmospheric currents. This, by the way, may be directly related to the warming of the Arctic», — he noted.

Also, climate change has led to steady heat waves that can last in any region for months and provoke natural fires. 

Recall that on September 18, Kursk collapsed Hurricane. Two people became victims of the disaster. 87 settlements in the region were left without electricity.

Until that time, Russia will be represented in EU Brussels at the level of Acting Permanent Representative,— added in the Russian diplomatic mission.

The permanent mission noted that they had repeatedly heard that the EU was in favor of maintaining channels of political dialogue. “However, in the current and future work in this area, the confrontational statements of the European Union, including those made by its leaders within and on the margins of the session of the UN General Assembly in New York, also have to be taken into account,” — concluded in permanent representation.

In turn, the official representative of the EU Foreign Service, Peter Stano, told RBC that he could not publicly comment on the process of issuing agremans and nominating permanent representatives. “We also do not comment on what steps the partners are taking in this regard and when they request (agrement) from us,” — he explained.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told reporters on Thursday that Russia has not yet asked the EU for a new envoy.

The commander of the special forces “Akhmat”: “The mobilized will cover our rear”

Plot RF special operation in Donbass and Ukraine

Aide to the head of ChechnyaRamzan Kadyrov for the security unit, commander of the special detachment “Akhmat” Apti Alaudinov in an interview with about what awaits the mobilized Russians in Donbass and why the population of the liberated territories chose to be with Russia.

Ramzan Kadyrov's assistant Apti Alaudinov — one of the few well-known Russian politicians who spent most of the special military operation in the Donbass. Moreover, during the liberation of the LPR and the capture of Severodonetsk, Apti was constantly next to the Akhmat special forces soldiers. So this time we met the already legendary Chechen commander near Lugansk and simply could not help but ask him a few questions about the course of the NVO, mobilization and the past referendum.


— Apti, how do you like the results of the referendum?

— I want to congratulate the people of Donbass on the completion of the referendum. They have been going to this for a long time. Only legal formalities remained. I want to note that there is no need to be surprised at anything, because the people of Donbass have suffered enough. I'm not just talking about the people who live in the DNR and LNR. I am also talking about Kherson and Zaporozhye. The population of these territories suffered no less, and today they have come to the conclusion that they will not be better off with anyone than with Russia. The decision of the people living in these territories was predictable, because the Ukrainian authorities did everything to make the population of these territories turn away from it. What pleases most of all is that even real Ukrainians in the majority voted for joining Russia. We can only say: “Welcome home to Russia.”

— Special Forces “Akhmat” and the fighters of the LPR are fighting hand in hand. How do you interact with local fighters?

— From the moment the SVO began on the territory of the LPR, the special forces “Akhmat” worked together with fighters of the 2nd Army Corps of the NM LPR. I want to point out that our units are assault units. We are at the forefront together with the 2nd Corps of the NM of the LPR. We all walked together and are moving forward, standing shoulder to shoulder.

I want everyone to hear why we are fighting so zealously together with the people of Lugansk. Chechnya was the first in Russia to have been ill with this disease of international terrorism, when the republic was flooded with satanic forces. Our people got out of this situation only thanks to the fact that we had such a leader asAkhmat Kadyrov, who managed to find a common language withVladimir Putin. Thanks to this, our people got out of this hole and together with representatives of all the security services of the Russian Federation we put things in order on the territory of Chechnya. 

< iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

Based on our experience, we can show how this is done. Demonstrate how the components should be adjusted in order to restore order in these territories. Due to the fact that we started preparing and resisting all these shaitans earlier than others, we have more experience in fighting against satanic units.

Pain of Donbass — this is the common pain of the Russian population. We know we're in a holy war. And this war would not have been possible only by the forces of the units of the Chechen Republic, if our Orthodox brothers had not stood shoulder to shoulder with us. All scriptures indicate that we will win this war. This war is common to all who love their Motherland, who associate their future with it. Special Forces “Akhmat”, the army of the Russian Federation and units of the DPR and LPR — this is one common force that must crush the army of Antichrist, who has gone to war against us.

— Mobilization took place in Russia. Will it help you achieve your goals?

— We have a category of citizens who got scared, while others went to the military registration and enlistment offices themselves. Yesterday, some of these people even came to us as part of the Akhmat special forces. It is important to understand that we do not need mobilized people on the front line. We have a main task. Today we have liberated vast territories that need to be controlled. We need forces and means for this. The mobilized are needed to protect these territories, to stay in our rear areas. They are needed to localize threats that may arise behind our backs. If they come and help us in our work in these territories, and from them we create reserve groups, then this is a major help.

There is no need to be afraid that the mobilized will be sent here. If we put love for the Motherland and God at the head of our every step, then it will be easier for us. I believe that if everyone wakes up and thinks about whether they want their children to go to gay parades? Does he want to be a slave in his country? Does he want values ​​that are contrary to God and human existence to be in his state, and his children grow up among this. If he answers these questions to himself and says, I would not want this, then he simply has to come out to defend our traditional values. 

To all those who are being mobilized today, I can recommend to get all the necessary combat skills as soon as possible and stand on a par with the defenders of our Fatherland and the civilized world. In this case, tomorrow they will be in the ranks of heroes who will honor Victory Day, as our ancestors once did. If they hide abroad or behind the skirts of their wives, how will they live with this further? What will they then apply for? That's the question they need to ask themselves now. 

— Chechnya after so many years of wars — it is a prosperous republic. Will Donbass follow Chechnya's path of recovery?

— I personally experienced all the events of the 90s in Chechnya. I participated in restoring order in the republic as part of Ramzan Kadyrov's team. Restore Donbas — little problem. For us today, the most important — is to defeat the enemy. After there are no representatives of the Ukrofascists on the territory of Donbass, we will restore everything here very quickly. Russia, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, is determined both to restore order and to allocate forces and means for the restoration of Donbass. There will be a prosperous land where tourists will come.

The population of Russia knows how to build. We know this from our history. After the Great Patriotic War, we were able to rebuild the country in a few years. To do this, we just need to unite and bring it all to life. After our victory, all our current enemy states will still envy us, and their leaders will be judged by their own people.

— Today “Akhmat” helps residents of Donbass with humanitarian aid. Ukrainian propaganda speaks blatant lies about Chechen fighters. Do they do it out of fear?

You and I must understand that «Akhmat» — this is a serious force against which Ukrainians cannot do anything. Where we start to advance, the APU just run and abandon their positions. They are being taken prisoner. They do everything to survive in this situation. Ukraine, on the other hand, is doing everything to influence the population, which is why it is trying to intimidate the liberated cities with Akhmat fighters. You and I know that all the settlements liberated by the Akhmat fighters immediately received humanitarian aid from the Akhmat Kadyrov fund. The population already knows that where the Akhmat special forces work, our humanitarian fund also works there.

How the voting went

The referenda went on for five days— in the first four days, voting took place in the adjoining territories and during the address bypass; on the last & mdash; September 27— on the plots. The organizers explained this decision for security reasons. By the evening of September 25, the referendums in the DPR, LPR and in the Russian-controlled territory of the Zaporozhye region were declared valid as a result of a turnout exceeding 50%: according to the central election commissions of the DPR and LPR, 77.12 and 76.09% of voters voted in three days, respectively. Kherson region exceeded the threshold of half the voters the next morning. Schools and colleges were on vacation during the voting period.

Polling stations for residents of the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions were opened in 84 Russian regions, there were about 600 stations, the CEC of Russia reported. Most of them were discovered in the south of Russia. CEC Deputy Chairman Nikolai Bulaev spoke of “hundreds of thousands of people” who are forced to stay in Russia and wish to vote. In total, more than 4 million people have arrived in Russia from the zone of military operation since February, Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova noted.

At the polling station, one had to present a passport or other document proving one's identity and confirming one's residence in the territory of one of the republics or regions. Residents of the Kherson region who lost their documents voted on a photocopy of their identity card if they were included in the voter lists, and citizens without documents could bring witnesses who would confirm the residence of the voter in the territory, explained the head of the local CEC Marina Zakharova.

Significant part of the voters was added to the lists additionally directly at the polling stations. “In particular, in polling stations formed abroad, the lists are compiled from scratch, that is, every citizen of the republic who comes to vote is entered into them,” — said the head of the Central Election Commission of the DPR, Vladimir Vysotsky, adding that some of the voters could not be taken into account initially.

When the regions can become part of Russia

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said on September 27 that all Russian authorities are ready to join the country with new regions. State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin promised that the House would support the decision to join the DPR and LPR to Russia, if it is adopted.

Following the results of the referendums on joining the LPR, DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, the authorities planned a rally in the center of Moscow, sources told RBC. It is tentatively scheduled for September 30, where Vladimir Putin is scheduled to speak. This can be combined with the signing of an agreement on joining Russia with the LPR, DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions.

The Federation Council may consider the entry of new subjects into Russia on October 4, speaker of the chamber Valentina Matvienko said, adding that she does not see the need for an extraordinary meeting of the chamber. Andrey Klishas, ​​Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, also noted that the need for “artificial acceleration of the constitutional procedure for the admission of new subjects to Russia” no. Klishas added that the inclusion procedure would require amendments to the text of the Russian Constitution.

The head of the LPR, Leonid Pasechnik, has already announced plans to visit Moscow with an appeal to Putin. According to Pasechnik, he hopes that “today-tomorrow” will go to Moscow. The head of the Zaporozhye region, Yevhen Balitsky, and the head of the military-civilian administration, Volodymyr Saldo, also announced their intention to visit the capital of Russia after the announcement of the results of the referendum.

Russian legislation contains a procedure for joining a new entity— foreign country or part of it. Admission to the composition takes place on the basis of an international treaty, before signing which the President of Russia notifies the Federal Assembly and the government. After the conclusion of the agreement, the President applies to the Constitutional Court with a request to assess the compliance of the agreement with the Constitution. If the court finds no violations, then the contract, together with the draft federal constitutional law, which defines the name of the new subject, its status, boundaries, transitional provisions, is sent to the State Duma, and then to the Federation Council. After the adoption of the document by the Houses of Parliament in Art. 65 of the Constitution is amended— the names of new subjects of Russia are added there.

What will change after the joining of subjects

After joining the republics of Donbass and the territories of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions controlled by Russian forces, Moscow will no longer conduct a special military operation, but a “counter-terrorist operation on its territories,” said the head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov. He also expressed the opinion that these territories could have been annexed without holding referendums, since their inhabitants “have long been determined in their legal choice.”

The Kremlin reported that after the referendums on joining the DPR, LPR, as well as the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions of Ukraine to Russia, “dramatically” the legal status of these territories will change. The situation will change “with all the relevant consequences for the purposes of protection and security in these territories,” Peskov noted.

A wave of public euphoria about this seems unlikely so far, the head of the Petersburg Politics Foundation believes. Mikhail Vinogradov. “To put it in sports language, the citizens approached the referendum not at the peak of their form. Therefore, there are no signs so far that the expansion of borders can cause a surge of positive, commensurate with the Crimean one or with how the hypothetical demobilization would be perceived, — said the political scientist RBC.

The topic of legitimacy will not be paramount in interpreting the referendum, Vinogradov added. “Everyone who feels the need to recognize it has actually already recognized it,” — he noted. According to the political scientist, referendums and partial mobilization were declared as two elements of one event. “In the first week of partial mobilization, there were expectations that the Russian authorities were trying to seriously accelerate the dynamics of the conflict with these actions. However, will Moscow be able to cope with this growing dynamics and these two solutions have created a synergy that strengthens the Russian position,— this is still a question on which there is no unequivocal opinion, — the political scientist concluded.

How Ukraine and the international community reacted

The position and task of Ukraine do not change due to the holding of referendums on joining the DPR and LPR to Russia, as well as in the territories of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions controlled by Russian troops, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said. In early September, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk said that Ukrainians would face a prison term for participating in referendums. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stressed that holding referendums would make it impossible to continue diplomatic negotiations with Russia.

French President Emmanuel Macron said that referendums in the Donbass and other regions “will not have legal consequences, and called them a “parody.” The authorities of Germany, the USA, Great Britain, Poland, Estonia, Turkey and a number of other countries also announced the non-recognition of the results of the referendums.

The UK imposed sanctions against 33 persons associated with the organization of referendums in the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions .

Foreign Ministry allowed Russia to participate in the investigation of the accident at Nord Stream

So far, no such proposals have been received, said Deputy Minister Alexander Grushko. The readiness to support the investigation was declared in Brussels, and both there and the Kremlin do not exclude that a targeted attack led to the damage /02/756643562474022.jpg 673w” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Russia is ready to participate in the investigation of incidents at Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2, if offered, said Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko.

“If there are any appeals, we will consider them. So far, there have been none, as far as I know, — said the Deputy Minister (TASS quote).

On the night of September 26, a sharp drop in pressure was recorded in one of the lines of Nord Stream 2, which was never put into operation without obtaining permission from Berlin and Brussels. Then the operating company Nord Stream reported a pressure drop on both strings of Nord Stream. (gas pipeline transportation has been suspended for an indefinite period since the end of August).

The company subsequently attributed the pressure drop to the unprecedented disruption. There have been leaks from gas pipelines, “it is not yet possible to estimate the timing of restoration of the gas transmission infrastructure.”

At the same time, seismologists from Denmark and Sweden, in whose territorial waters leaks occurred, recorded powerful explosions.

The Kremlin admitted that a targeted attack could have caused the damage. Possible sabotage was announced by EU diplomat Josep Borrell and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, as well as Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. The Swedish authorities also believe that the leaks were the result of “explosions, probably caused by sabotage.”

Latvia has declared a state of emergency (ES) in areas that border Russia. This is stated in a message on the website of the government of the republic.

The Cabinet of Ministers explained that, in general, the situation on the border between Latvia and Russia is stable, however, after mobilization was announced in Russia, the number of Russians wishing to leave their country “significantly increased”. “Thus, there is a risk of a rapid increase in the number of illegal migrants on the Latvian-Russian border as well. Purpose of emergency measures— preemptive preparation for such a risk,»,— The message says.

The emergency regime came into force on September 28 in the Aluksne, Balvi and Ludza regions of the country and will last for three months. It also applies to airports, sea and rail border crossings.

The measure will allow border guards, in case of need or a sharp increase in the number of migrants, to quickly attract additional resources: the police, the State Security Service, as well as the country's armed forces.

In addition, Latvia will close the Pededze border crossing, strengthen border surveillance and border control. In particular, the number of patrols will be increased to prevent illegal border crossing.

Since September 19, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Estonia have banned the entry of Russians who have tourist Schengen visas, including those issued by third countries. Exceptions are provided for those who cross borders for humanitarian reasons, for diplomats, for those visiting relatives, and for truck drivers.

This was reported to Reuters by the Acting Minister of Trade and Industry of Afghanistan, Haji Nooruddin Azizi. According to him, the Taliban government is now working to diversify its foreign trade relations.

As part of the deal, Russia will annually supply the country with about 1 million tons of gasoline, 1 million tons of diesel fuel, 500 thousand tons of liquefied hydrocarbon gases ( LPG) and 2 million tons of wheat, he said. Azizi did not name the exact price of the contracts, but said that Russia offered the Taliban a discount compared to the average world prices for raw materials.

The agreement will remain in effect for an indefinite trial period. After it, the parties will have to sign an agreement for a longer period if they are satisfied with the results.

RBC sent inquiries to representatives of Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak and the Ministry of Energy.

< p>On June 15, representatives of the Taliban visited the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Among the Taliban negotiators who arrived were the deputy head of the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mohammad Younis Hossein, and the head of the Afghan diplomatic mission, Jamal Nasir Garwal. One of the goals of the visit was to negotiate the supply of wheat to Afghanistan.

In August, Azizi said that the Afghan authorities intend to negotiate with Moscow on the supply of fuel to the country. The Taliban are ready to pay for Russian oil with minerals, raisins and medicinal herbs Azizi said. If such a scheme does not suit Moscow, then Kabul can also pay with money, he noted.

Criminal gene. How maniacs are found in Russia by DNA

The first forensic DNA research in our country began in 1988 the year when the USSR State Committee for Science and Technology decided to organize genotyposcopy laboratories in the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Since then, this method has helped solve tens of thousands of criminal cases, many of which seemed completely hopeless. In recent years, this work has become more and more effective due to the replenishment of the federal database of genomic information.

From a drop of saliva, sweat or a single hair from a crime scene, they learned to get data even about the appearance of a suspect. tells the stories of the most infamous villains who were caught thanks to these technologies.

Maniac's smile

One of the most famous and bloody criminals caught in Russia in recent decades, became the “Angara maniac” Mikhail Popkov. In terms of the number of victims, he far surpassed even Andrey Chikotilowho took the lives of 53 people. The killer from Siberia has 80 proven murders, most of which he himself confessed to after receiving a life sentence in 2015. For such convicts, participation in investigative actions on new episodes of crimes outside the walls of a special regime colony — it's like going on vacation. And to such a life in which he is happy to be "free" even in handcuffs with a chain, DNA chains were brought.

In the 90s, Mikhail Popkov served in the Angarsk police, where he received the nickname “Misha-smile”. The junior sergeant was always very friendly, did a good job as an operational duty officer and was considered an exemplary family man. No one noticed how a bloodthirsty beast arose under the mask of a good-natured man, awakened by a heartfelt insult. She was caused by the betrayal of her wife, whom Popkov once accidentally found out about. He loved his daughter very much and decided to save the family, but began to take revenge on other women whom he considered vicious. After work, he often taxied, picking up pretty strangers at bus stops or at hot spots. The man used his charms, offered to drink together in solitude, and many agreed that it cost them their lives.

Popkov claimed that his victims voluntarily entered into sexual intercourse with him and only then they themselves brought him to sin. Allegedly, in the course of quarrels from the enmity that arose, he killed them and hiding the remains in the forests. But more eloquently than any of his words, which cannot be verified, spoke the remains of the unfortunate. Many were found with terrible injuries from axes, knives, screwdrivers and other items. In one of the victims, the monster even cut out the heart. Nevertheless, similar murders of women in the vicinity of Angarsk were investigated separately for a very long time. Everything changed only in 1998 the year when rumors about a sex maniac spread in the city. The case was taken over by the investigative-operational group, which then got dozens of victims of the criminal.

But the search for the killer dragged on for many years. In the end, two factors played a key role. One of them was the conclusion that a person in uniform was involved in the crimes. This was indicated by many things, including the testimony of the miraculously surviving victim of Popkov about the attack of a policeman who was not her. Based on this, in the 2000s, thousands of people, including former and current employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, took DNA tests to compare them with the genome of the criminal. The cautious villain left no evidence other than his biomaterial. And it was possible to bring everything together in 2012 year, when the Investigative Committee resumed the investigation of the criminal case, which had already been closed and was considered hopeless.

By that time, Popkov had not worked at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for a long time and drove a foreign car from Vladivostok to for sale. During such a flight, he was detained. The man did not resist and immediately confessed to more than two dozen murders. From his words, he stopped doing them in the late 2000s due to impotence resulting from venereal disease. The forensic examination recognized Popkov as sane, but at the same time revealed a mental deviation in him — homicide mania. This is a strong desire to kill people, which the maniac himself explained by the desire to rid the world of fallen women. During an interview behind bars, he lamented that he didn't foresee just one thing. Like, he couldn't have imagined such a development of technology in which he would be found by the traces of DNA left many years ago.

Whispering rapist

At some point, Mikhail Popkov was being tested for involvement in the rape of women in a city located three hundred kilometers from Angarsk, which by siberian standards — trifle. But it turned out that a local serial criminal was operating there, no less cautious and dangerous. Moreover, it was calculated using the methods of DNA examination by members of the same investigative-operational group that caught the Angarsk maniac. At the end of his case, they immediately began to unravel the tangle of dozens of sexual crimes that occurred in Tulun. Again, at the beginning of the dashing 90s, attacks began there, between which for a very long time they could not or did not want to see an obvious connection.

The Tulun rapist committed attacks at night time right on the streets of the mining town. He approached the women quickly from behind and puts a knife to the throat so that they wouldn call for help. Then he takes         to an uninhabited place like an abandoned building and does his job. The offender did not seek to kill, but threatened all the victims with reprisal if they contacted the police. If a woman had a passport with her, the attacker recognized the address, some he pricked or cut with a knife to intimidate. After that, not everyone dared to report the crime, and those who did could tell little. The rapist did not show his face, for the complexity of identification by his voice he spoke in a whisper, had the usual dense physique. But there were also clues: many reported about dirty work clothes and persistent smell of diesel fuel.

Tulun rapist Pavel Shuvalov. Frame of TV channel Russia 1

Detectives followed the fuel trail in the 2000s, which saw the peak of rapes. They interrogated everyone who dealt with transport and solar oil — taxi drivers, tractor drivers, truck drivers, depot workers. Then the search came to a dead end, but in 2018, the matter was thoroughly taken up. The  investigative-operational group had a strong trump card in hands from the site of one of the rapes, where biological traces of the maniac with his DNA were left on the earth. They helped test thousands of men for rape, from whom samples of the epithelium of the oral cavity were taken. As a result, the coincidence of the genetic profile played a decisive role after the offender was identified by orientation. It turned out to be a resident of Tulun Pavel Shuvalov, who worked for many years as a bulldozer operator at a coal mine.

In order not to frighten off the rapist who could hide, we went to a trick. At the beginning of 2019, a district police officer came to his house and asked him to testify about a recent fight. At the police station, Shuvalov said that he knew nothing about her and signed the protocol, leaving biological traces on the pen. After their investigation, he was detained. Investigators had evidence that almost thirty residents of the city, including minors, became victims of the criminal. Shuvalov killed two women for violent resistance. But only a part of the crimes was investigated at the court, since in 2019 many materials were destroyed by the infamous Tulun flood, and the statute of limitations expired in some episodes. As a result, last fall, 53-year-old Shuvalov was sentenced to 24 years in a strict regime colony.

Shuvalov himself pleaded guilty in part. He tried to prove that he killed the two women not on purpose, but accidentally. Psychiatrists helped to understand the motives for his violent actions. The offender was diagnosed with raptophilia — a mental disorder in which arousal occurs with pleas for mercy. It also turned out that he made his attacks spontaneously after drinking alcohol. The rapist could suddenly leave his drinking companions and go looking for a suitable victim on the neighboring streets. At the same time, the man was even acquainted with some of the victims or their relatives, because Tulun — small city. Like Mikhail Popkov, this criminal did not arouse any suspicions in relatives and relatives. He lived with his wife, who taught Russian at school, and raised two children.

DNA technologies in forensics work not only on the principle of a fingerprint, when to prove guilt you just need to compare the genetic profile of a particular suspect and the material from the crime scene. They also allow you to determine the various features of the appearance of a person who left his biological mark. Thanks to this, it was possible to catch a pedophile who for many years attacked girls with impunity in Novosibirsk. He imperceptibly pursued younger schoolgirls to their home and followed went into the porch, where he introduced himself as a housing office employee. The man said that he needed to check the meter or feel the battery. Minors opened the doors, and if their parents weren't in the apartment, then the unknown person calmly committed violent acts.

The first of these attacks took place in the 2000s. Then the search didn't lead to anything, and the pedophile himself stopped his attacks for several years. But when           it became known about a series of new crimes of the  communal worker, he was taken seriously. Ambushes were set up near schools and sketches were made, only each time the faces on them turned out to be different. The children could not really describe the offender, although many pointed out one important common feature: the offender had a non-Slavic appearance. . According to DNA, they learned to determine the ethnic and territorial origin of a person, which works especially accurately with small nationalities.

The database of the research institute made it possible to establish that a pedophile from Novosibirsk — Buryat roots. Scientists even indicated a specific region of Buryatia, where the male ancestors of the offender lived. At the same time, it was determined that according to his mother, he is most likely Russian. This mixing of blood explained why the children could not understand the nationality of a man. There were suggestions that he might be Asian, Caucasian, Gypsy. Understanding that you need to look for a mestizo, significantly narrowed the circle of the search. Starting with working off hundreds of people, they systematically came to & nbsp; several dozen suspects. The work used information about the physique of a pedophile, recordings from video cameras and data about cell phone numbers glowing near crime scenes. All these threads led the detectives to a native of the Barguzinsky district of the Republic of Buryatia, who was named by Tomsk scientists.

Ruslan Ochirov was engaged in martial arts, so they decided to detain him carefully in order to avoid resistance. The man was stopped in the car by the traffic police under the pretext of checking documents, and he didn’t even have time to come to his senses when the handcuffs snapped on him. Although Ochirov refused to admit his guilt in the attacks on schoolgirls, this did not help him in any way. DNA examination confirmed that it was his biological traces that were found at the crime scenes. For 14 attacks, the court sentenced the pedophile to 18 years in prison. Many parents in the region learned with horror that at one time Ruslan Ochirov worked as a physical education teacher at a school where he could look out for the first victims. But due to a small salary, he quit his job and went to work in a taxi. By the way, this criminal was also a family man and raised two children.

The story of a deception. How I was “bred” by scammers

I've been telling readers about all kinds of fraud for almost 20 years. Including — about telephone. It would seem that I know everything about it. But, as they say, there is a hole in the old woman, — once I got caught. I (!!!), an experienced journalist and a real colonel, swallowed the “hook”, about which I myself warned readers many times.

It happened in the morning. I got a call from a man who introduced himself as a police officer — senior lieutenant from Ryazansky Lane, building 1. The Main Directorate for Economic Security and Anti-Corruption is located there. I have been there and interviewed. I am well aware that the police do not call ordinary citizens — for no reason. If you need to talk, they themselves come “to” or invite you to a summons. But I am — not an ordinary citizen. Let me remind you that for two decades I have been in close contact with the employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, I call these guys myself, I find out something from them, and they call me. That is why I was not surprised and alerted by the next call — maybe at work. Moreover, they immediately addressed me by my first name and patronymic, as if I were an old acquaintance. Which is what I bought into.

And then, as I believe, there was an NLP session — neuro-linguistic programming. This is a kind of hypnosis based on certain code words or phrases that affect the subconscious. They began to ask me questions whether I knew a certain citizen, how long I had talked with a notary, whether I had drawn up a power of attorney, whether I had taken loans, what and where my deposits were, how much I earn. And every time they clarified — did you understand me well? Apparently, this was the programming key, which is why I “floated”. 

During the conversation, I was informed that some unscrupulous employees of Sberbank “leaked” my passport data to scammers who are now — here literally right now — draw up a loan of 200 thousand rubles in my name. 

In order for me not to owe anything to the banks, I need to talk to the employees of the Central Bank's own security service. They will contact me — just don't switch. Indeed, two girls with pleasant voices talked to me in turn, who asked the same questions as the “senior lieutenant”. At the same time, I was strictly warned not to say anything even to the closest people — they say, this is a bank secret, and its disclosure threatens with criminal punishment, and not only for me, but also for my relatives. This — is also logical: any person nearby could easily break the “enchantment” by twisting a finger at the temple: “What are you doing, idiot ?!” By the way, employees of the Central Bank also never call individuals. And if a representative of a commercial bank, the same Sberbank, contacts a client for some reason, then a short number is displayed on the phone, for example 900.

And finally, “the cherry on the cake.” “Security Officer” she strictly warned me to coordinate all my telephone conversations with her. I can call both the police and scammers. Therefore, before answering, you need to tell the incoming number to her, and she will give the go-ahead. But first you need to put the phone on charge and replenish the account. In a moment I understood why it was necessary — I got a call from… USA.

The veil fell from my eyes, and with trembling fingers I dialed the number of Lieutenant General Yuri Zhdanov — Help!

Yuri Zhdanov, Lieutenant General, Doctor of Law, Honored Lawyer of Russia, Professor:

— A conversation with my friend, a well-known journalist who has been interviewing me for print and electronic media for more than four years, including on issues of cybersecurity, cyber fraud, the state of crime in this area, both surprised and upset me. It turned out that, violating all the instructions, which he himself wrote about, he entered into a dialogue with the scammers. I have always said that the criminal world is improving, and professional and simply talented psychologists are on their side.

A polite address by name and patronymic dulled Mikhail's vigilance, and he told some of the data, which he himself warned readers about as unacceptable behavior during such calls. However, later he had a suspicion that suddenly something was wrong… 

From his words, it immediately became obvious to me that these were scammers, but due to Mikhail's insistent request, I decided to double-check myself.  

I forwarded all the information Mikhail gave me to Sergey Lebed, head of the Sber Cybersecurity Service. He unmistakably made the same diagnosis as I did and instructed his subordinates to check the information to prevent fraudulent activities against a respected journalist. While we were conducting our own investigation, and I forbade Mikhail from further negotiations, the scammers began to lose their nerve, and as evidence they sent him a copy of Istomina A.S.'s certificate, allegedly signed by the deputy chairman of the Central Bank. True, not on that letterhead — from the field of primitive fakes of the 90s. Then calls began to be heard not only from Russian, but also from American numbers, they persistently wrote to the chat to continue the dialogue.


Once again I want to reach out to all gullible people:

1. Do not negotiate with law enforcement officers about cyber fraud by phone! Let them send a summons, further according to circumstances. 

2. The security service of the Central Bank, Sberbank and other banks never call clients and do not try to “check” with them; or fish out their personal data and any personal information. 

3. If you have any questions about such requests, please call your bank yourself to clarify the problem. 

4. And the last. All dialogues with such “employees” work against you! Never share your personal information with anyone!

Iranian Foreign Ministry opposed the supply of weapons to Russia and Ukraine

Tehran considers it wrong to supply weapons to Moscow or Kyiv and does not support any of the parties to the conflict, the Foreign Ministry said. The United States accuses Iran of transferring drones to Russia for use in Ukraine. The Kremlin called it a fake

< /p> Hossein Amir Abdollahian

Iran, although it cooperates in the defense sphere with Russia, does not support any of the parties to the conflict in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said in an interview with Al Monitor.

“We consider it wrong for any side to send arms to Ukraine or Russia,” — he pointed out.

The Minister noted that Tehran is categorically against any armed conflicts, “whether in Ukraine, in Yemen or in Palestine.”

Iran intends to promote political dialogue and “resolve this crisis through political negotiations.” , he added.

So Abdollahian answered the question whether Tehran supplies drones to Moscow for use in hostilities in Ukraine, as Washington claims. According to National Security Assistant Jake Sullivan, the Russian side was interested in the Shahed-191 and Shahed-129 combat drones. The Washington Post also wrote about the supply of drones.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry did not confirm this, calling the US accusations baseless. The agency noted that Moscow and Tehran cooperated in the field of modern technologies before the start of hostilities in Ukraine “and there has not been much development in this area lately.” The Kremlin said that the authorities of the two countries did not discuss such issues, and called the data on the transfer of drones stuffing.

Medvedev declared Russia’s right to use nuclear weapons if necessary

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Medvedev: Russia can use nuclear weapons if necessary NATO will not intervene in the conflict in Ukraine even if Russia uses “the most formidable weapon”, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev believes

Dmitry Medvedev

Russia, if necessary and in case of a threat to the existence of the country, has the right to use nuclear weapons, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev wrote in his telegram channel.

“Russia has the right to use nuclear weapons if necessary. in predetermined cases. In strict accordance with the fundamentals of state policy in the field of nuclear deterrence, — he said.

The decision to use nuclear weapons can be made in the event of an attack on Russia or its allies using similar weapons or conventional weapons, when the existence of the country is threatened, the ex-president and ex-premier said.< /p>

“In addition, we will do everything to prevent the appearance of nuclear weapons in our hostile neighbors. For example, in Nazi Ukraine, which is directly controlled today by NATO countries, — wrote Medvedev.

The Deputy Chairman of the Security Council suggested that NATO would not intervene even if Russia uses the “most formidable weapon”, since the security of Washington, London, Brussels is much more important for the alliance than “an unnecessary perishing Ukraine».

The supply of modern weapons to Kyiv Medvedev called “just business” for Western countries, which is “densely mixed” on “hate” to Russia. “Therefore, they will swallow the use of any weapon in the current conflict,” — he said.

  • the impact of the enemy on critical state or Russian military installations, the disabling of which will lead to the disruption of retaliatory actions of nuclear forces;
  • aggression against Russia with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened.

On September 21, the day the partial mobilization was announced in Russia, President Vladimir Putin promised to use “all means” to protect the people. “This is not a bluff. Our independence and freedom will be secured by every means available,— he said.

The US and UK are pushing to move the fighting to Russian territory and are using “nuclear blackmail,” Putin said. According to him, NATO is “reconnaissance” throughout the Russian south, and Western countries are openly talking about the need to defeat Russia on the battlefield.

Russia will face “catastrophic consequences” in the event of the use of nuclear weapons, said a few days after Putin's announcement, US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. He also said that Washington had notified Moscow about this through a private line, and added that high-level contacts between the two countries continue.

Moscow called its goals the protection of the population and the “complete liberation” of Donbass, as well as ensuring the security of Russia. Kyiv, in response to the special operation, declared martial law and general mobilization, and Western countries began to impose sanctions against Moscow and strengthened military support for Ukraine. Seven months after the start of the special operation, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization.

FT called the West’s mirror response to Russia’s nuclear strike unlikely

The West doubts the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine, writes FT. According to the newspaper, in response to such a move by Moscow, a nuclear strike is not considered. media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

< img class="aligncenter" src="" alt="FT says West's mirror response to Russia's nuclear strike is unlikely" />< /p>

Western officials doubt that Russia will use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, but if it does, a mirror response is unlikely, sources told The Financial Times.

Despite the fact that Western countries did not take the words Putin, who warned about the readiness to use “all means” to protect the country, as a direct threat, they increase vigilance and nuclear deterrence, the newspaper's interlocutors said.

Two unnamed officials expressed doubt that the West would do the same in response to a potential nuclear strike. According to them, “the usual military response” will follow. Three sources told the newspaper that NATO countries had warned Moscow about the scale of the response to the use of nuclear weapons. In their opinion, such a threat would be the best deterrent.

Analysts and politicians, the FT notes, believe that if Russia decides to use nuclear weapons, then it will be tactical (it contains less TNT equivalent compared to the strategic one).

The topic of Russia's possible use of nuclear weapons in the West is being discussed after Putin's words on September 21, during his address to citizens, during which the head of state announced a partial mobilization. He accused Western countries of “nuclear blackmail”.

“When the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal to protect Russia and our people. It's not a bluff. <…> Those who are trying to blackmail us with nuclear weapons should know that the wind rose can also turn in their direction, — he said.

The law signed in 2020 provides four conditions for Russia to use nuclear weapons:

  • receipt of reliable information about the launch of ballistic missiles attacking the territories of Russia and/or its allies;
  • the use by the enemy of nuclear weapons and other types of weapons of mass destruction on the territories of Russia;
  • the impact of the enemy on critical state or military facilities of Russia, the failure of which will lead to the disruption of the response of nuclear forces;
  • aggression against Russia with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened.
  • In March, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that any outcome of the military operation in Ukraine “certainly not reason for the use of nuclear weapons. Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, after the announcement of the referenda, warned that the protection of all joined territories would be strengthened. “Russia has announced that not only mobilization capabilities, but also any Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons and weapons based on new principles, can be used for such protection,” — he wrote in his telegram channel.

    Scholz explained the refusal to supply tanks to Kyiv by the unwillingness of the war with Russia

    According to the German Chancellor, Germany does not want to bring the conflict to a war between Russia and NATO media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

    Olaf Scholz

    German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, explaining the country's refusal to supply tanks to Ukraine, said that Germany does not want to bring the conflict to a war between Russia and NATO. He said this in an interview with The New York Times.

    “We support Ukraine. We do it in such a way that we do not escalate the situation to a war between Russia and NATO, because that would be a disaster, — noted Scholz.

    In early September, the newspaper Die Welt, citing sources in the Ukrainian government, wrote that Scholz did not agree to supply tanks to Ukraine, as requested by the Prime Minister of this country Denys Shmygal during his visit to Berlin.

    Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba noted that he did not see a single convincing argument for the FRG to refuse to transfer military vehicles to Kyiv, but only “abstract fears and excuses.” According to him, the country now needs Leopard tanks and Marder infantry fighting vehicles. “What is Berlin afraid of that Kyiv is not afraid of?” asked Kuleba on Twitter.

    According to German Defense Minister Christina Lambrecht, Berlin does not want to provide Western-style tanks to Ukraine alone. She noted that so far no country has taken such a step.

    This week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Germany to be an independent state in decision-making. “If you don’t want to give us [tanks and armored vehicles], listen, no offense, you are an independent state— so don't give it, but don't try to say: first America, then Germany, then there will be Poland. No need. Everyone must be responsible for himself, — said Zelensky.

    As Politico wrote, citing US officials, congressional sources and Ukrainian interlocutors, the United States (they have M1 Abrams tanks) and Germany are delaying the supply of tanks to Ukraine “partly because of problems with training and logistics.” At the same time, according to one of the interlocutors, German Leopards are more suitable for military operations in Ukraine, since they are more similar to Soviet tanks and require less fuel than Abrams.

    Russia has repeatedly criticized the pumping of Ukraine with Western weapons. President Vladimir Putin, in an address on September 21 regarding the announcement of a partial mobilization in the country, said that Western countries also launched “nuclear blackmail”. “To those who allow themselves such statements regarding Russia, I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, and for individual components— and more modern than those of the NATO countries, — he said. Putin assured that if the territorial integrity of the state is threatened, Moscow will use all means at its disposal.
