Attempts to negotiate return agreements with EU countries to send migrants back to safety countries “completely failed” after the UK withdrew from the Dublin arrangements when freedom of movement ended. This was stated by members of the British Parliament. A parliamentary inquiry recommended that the British government negotiate with France on the introduction of further preventive measures on the continent and the establishment of British asylum evaluation centers there. The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee's inquiry said the British government's response to the migrant crisis was characterized by “inattention and bad decisions” that exacerbated problems and “undermined public confidence” in the asylum system and border control. “The policy of sending asylum seekers to Rwanda appears to have gone unnoticed by those trying to cross the English Channel,” committee chair Diana Johnson said. The UK needs a reality-based asylum system. According to Sky News, MPs say the British government's plan to send migrants to Rwanda “appears to have gone unnoticed” by those trying to cross the English Channel and “there is no clear evidence that it will work.”
The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee also accused British ministers of seeking “radical new policies that could make good headlines” and said the “biggest deterrent” to crossing the English Channel would be to prevent migrants “once- or leave France.”
A parliamentary report says: “Much more clarity is needed on a new plan to resettle some of the British migrants in Rwanda. The House of Commons Home Affairs Committee says “much more clarity is needed on the resettlement of some UK migrants to Rwanda” and accuses ministers of chasing “good headlines” in the press. It must be fair, efficient and recognize the UK's international obligations.”
Enver Solomon, chief executive of the Refugee Council, welcomed the report and urged the next UK prime minister to succeed Boris Johnson to “immediately rethink and focus on real alternatives that, contrary to rhetoric, are readily available.”
Истoчник www.mk.ru The “perceived unwillingness” of the French government to find a solution did not help matters, the document said. There is a “worrisome trend” in UK Home Office statements being made before “detailed policies have been worked out, tested or even agreed between government departments”. It was “correct” to abandon plans to push migrants out at sea, as it was difficult to see how the benefits of such a tactic would outweigh “its potential costs in terms of risk to the lives of migrants and officials and damage to the UK's reputation.”
The “biggest deterrent” to crossing the English Channel would be to prevent migrants from “ever leaving France”, MPs say. The total for 2022 could reach an estimated 60,000 people. British MPs literally trashed scheme to send migrants to Rwanda
There is “no clear evidence” that the plan to send migrants seeking asylum in the UK to Rwanda will work. The British government does not rule out leaving the human rights system in Europe after the latest legal decisions were passed last month blocking the first planned deportation flight. She added that policy development has “moved away from evidence-based, proven and cost-effective solutions that are responsive to the changing demands placed on it.”
Diana Johnson continued: “Instead, we are looking for a radical new policy, which could make headlines, but does little to stop the flow of people willing to risk their lives to get to the UK by any means. There is no clear evidence that this policy will deter migrants from crossing the border.”
More than 14,000 migrants have traveled across the English Channel from continental Europe to the UK this year, according to preliminary data.

On Friday, the US State Department approved a possible sale of military technical assistance to Taiwan with an estimated cost of $108 million, according to a press release from the Agency for Defense Cooperation and US security. But Chinese analysts continue to urge the US to take more concrete action, rather than empty promises, to reduce the turmoil affecting bilateral relations. The American destroyer USS Benfold sailed near the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea on Saturday, Reuters reported, citing a US Navy statement. These recent military provocations fully demonstrate the hypocrisy of the US, a Beijing-based foreign relations expert who requested anonymity told the Global Times on Sunday. Observers have pointed to internal conflict and chaos in US policy as different US agencies and officials send different, sometimes conflicting signals on a range of issues. arms sale to the island of Taiwan in 2022 and the fifth under the Biden administration. “But in the end, the US will pick up a stone to drop it on its own feet,” the expert said. According to Beijing's Global Times, the provocation near the Nansha Islands came after the same US warship was warned on Wednesday by the Chinese People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Southern Theater Command's naval and air forces about illegally entering Chinese territorial waters of the Xisha Islands, also in the South China Sea. China no longer has unrealistic illusions about the US and the PLA, analysts say is preparing for a worst-case scenario in which there will be conflict across the Taiwan Strait to protect national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Diao Daming, an associate professor at Renmin University of China in Beijing, told Global Times in an earlier interview that the proposals made by Washington are completely self-serving because he wants to keep the core of Sino-US relations stable and free from high-intensity conflicts, but at the same time he seeks to contain China's development. The US screams about the need to manage differences and prevent conflict, but continues its provocations on the most sensitive topics, including the Taiwan issue and the South China Sea, the expert said. “Washington will pick up a stone to drop on its own feet”
China has accused the US of ramping up military provocations after Washington approved new arms shipments to the island of Taiwan and sent a warship near the Chinese islands of Nansha and Xisha in the South China Sea just one week after the five-hour high-level bilateral meeting on July 9. Wei Dongxu, a Beijing-based military expert, noted that in addition to the hegemonic mentality behind the rising military provocations, the US is also concerned about China's growing self-defense capabilities. Chinese analysts say the moves demonstrate the internal chaos and hypocrisy of US policy. Истoчник www.mk.ru The widening gap between Washington's words and deeds has made the US “completely untrustworthy” in international affairs. A series of frequent contacts between senior Chinese and US officials since June, including a meeting between China's State Counselor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in Bali, underscored the two sides' consensus to not let the confrontation escalate. According to Wei, US warplanes and ships are approaching the waters and airspace near China to flex their muscles, show their presence and assert Washington's hegemony. The deal is the fourth U.S. However, China has fully recognized the nature of the US and is ready for all scenarios – China is always open for dialogue and communication, but at the same time is on high alert for US provocations, Global Times writes.

“This is a homecoming”
On July 17, it became known that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had removed Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova and SBU head Ivan Bakanov from their posts. Director General of the Institute for Political Studies, political scientist Sergey Markov believes that the reasons why the heads of the SBU and the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office were fired can be considered “great news.” It is noted that Bakanov was removed from his post for improper performance of his duties.

This was announced by the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov.  
Истoчник www.mk.ru – It is wrong to say that these installations have some kind of superpowers to destroy our rear facilities. We can say that all HIMARS are more of a psychological and PR effect. Even the guidance systems remained practically the same, inertial. Its ballistic flight parameters are about 300 kilometers, but in fact it flies at 500, and according to some sources, up to 700 kilometers. In terms of its characteristics, the MLRS resembles our Uragan multiple launch rocket systems. and «Smerch». Moreover, in some range of used ammunition, HIMARS is much inferior to Soviet systems, – said Evgeny Linin. The launcher and the transport-loading vehicle of the American MLRS were destroyed with the help of high-precision weapons in the Krasnoarmeysk region in the Donetsk People's Republic. HIMARS is not some kind of know-how or superweapon, it is an upgraded M270 MLRS system, which was put into service with the US Army back in 1980. At the same time, according to him, “HIMARS should not be underestimated”:
– When equipped with short-range operational-tactical missiles, the installation poses a serious threat. First, they bombard with shells, using all their artillery capabilities to “exhaust” the systems of our counter-battery warfare, and only after that the shelling from American installations begins. All other used HIMARS weapons are no different from what was previously installed on the tracked chassis of the M270 MLRS complex. Photo: Global Look Press
Western experts had to recognize that the destruction of the “invincible” HIMARS was “sad news for Ukraine and the North Atlantic Alliance.”
According to Yevgeny Linin, the MK military expert, the destruction of HIMARS was just a matter of time. Today, these installations are 40 years old, nothing has changed dramatically since those times. In order to effectively fire shots from HIMARS, Ukrainians have to use certain tactics. The range of application is about  80 kilometers, so we can say that unguided missiles are used and their use is actually very limited. “The invulnerability of the American MLRS is clearly exaggerated”
The allied forces in Donbass continued to debunk the myth of the invulnerability of the American multiple rocket launchers (MLRS) HIMARS. The expert also told what tactics the Armed Forces use when shelling with American systems:
– If talking about ammunition supplied to Ukraine for HIMARS, their range is small.

– This forecast is not true. Photo: Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation
– The second phase of the special operation is coming to an end, – says Alexei Leonkov. They completely compromised themselves, this also applies to the negotiation process. So Russia has every reason to fulfill the task that has been set for Ukraine. – We will not finish. And Kyiv predicts: the situation may change dramatically very soon. It will be the same here. – Yes, including because now, in fact, there is a change of a number of leaders of foreign states. It is very likely that now the West is looking for a replacement for them, taking into account the fact that they will be people who are able and will try to establish a dialogue with us. Although at the same time, information that there are no sanctions , even if we stop in the Donbass, no one is going to shoot us. The fire support of our troops along the line of contact is now increasing. As far as I know the information – and our president recently said the same – we really haven't started anything in a serious way yet. It is clear that Kyiv and the West are doing everything to stop the conflict at this stage – the end of the second stage of the special operation. They need this in order, according to their idea, to arouse a sharp negative attitude towards the special operation, first of all, the Russian population. – Yes, our president indicated that we are ready to negotiate, but this does not mean that we will make some concessions. We are talking about the next sanctions package – by and large, nothing changes. – Yes, they also understand that the only group that fetters us now is located just under the Donbass. It is clear that Slavyansk is of great importance for us also because it is the city from which it all began. Ukrainian propaganda will say how they “heroically defend themselves”, “heroically” lure us, “heroically retreat”, while we “suffer losses”. They serve everything with the same kind of sauce. At the same time, there needs to be some changes. And if it is crushed now, then we will enter the operational space. Agreements can only be on Russia's terms. And when Slavyansk and Kramatorsk are called, then we are talking about the most important large settlements, where there is still a significant part of those who are trying to oppose us from the Ukrainian side. And secondly, if suddenly NATO intervenes, the scale of hostilities may expand. Defense Minister Shoigu ordered to intensify efforts in all sectors of the front. And this is noted by our military correspondents, who say: finally, everything has begun! I think the Supreme Commander thus hinted at two circumstances at once. Истoчник www.mk.ru Further in cities and towns, we will already meet not so much units of regular troops as units of territorial defense. We'll move on. And about the third phase, you need to understand the following: we will not stop at the Donbass, as many people think. Military expert Alexei Leonkov believes that Russia will not stop in Donbas
Combat operations have intensified in the special operation zone in Ukraine. Slavyansk now increasingly begins to flicker on news feeds. The first is due to the fact that the operation will continue, but more intensively. It is clear that fire support is increasing in order to finish this second phase as quickly as possible. Aleksey Leonkov, a military analyst and editor of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine, explained to MK how the latest events can be interpreted. Therefore, their main task now – which they are constantly doing now – is shelling the liberated cities of Ukraine, our cities and towns. – The defeat of the group near the Donbass is inevitable.

According to Kortunov, there is a personnel problem in any country, and Ukraine is no exception, and the current situation places special demands on personnel because of how stressful it is. The specialist believes that the likelihood of personnel changes in Ukraine will depend on many circumstances, in particular, on the further development of the conflict in the country. Photo: president.gov.ua
In an interview with Lenta.ru, Kortunov noted that heads of departments are usually fired due to dissatisfaction with their work or when the situation in the country is developing far from the way we would like. Nevertheless, the expert noted that it would be difficult for Zelensky to find a suitable replacement for the vacant posts. According to Kortunov, new leaders may use some other methods in the future. The political scientist believes that one-time replacements occur due to the fact that the leadership's expectations are not fully met. Kortunov noted that there are rumors about disagreements between Zelensky and the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to the political scientist, it is difficult to verify the validity of these rumors, but personnel changes will probably still take place. “It will not be easy to find a suitable replacement quickly”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 17 removed the head of the SBU, Ivan Bakanov, and the country’s Prosecutor General, Irina Venediktova, which, according to the Director General of the Russian Council on International Affairs, political scientist Andriy Kortunov, could be due to the changing relations of political forces within Ukraine. The political scientist explained that leaders do not always choose candidates on the basis of professional competence, since political loyalty or knowledge of certain people often becomes the main criterion. Moreover, he believes that soon Zelensky may continue to carry out personnel changes. Ukraine
Истoчник www.mk.ru According to the expert, this reflects the growing difficulties in governing a country that is in a difficult situation.

Accordingly, Athens will now also try to win back the lost points. Ankara also accuses the European Union of turning a blind eye to this “egregious violation of human rights.”
Did not contribute to the strengthening of Turkish-Greek mutual understanding and speech in May Prime Minister of Hellas Kyriakos Mitsotakis in a speech before both houses of the US Congress. “For the sake of the foreign and domestic political situation, from time to time both Turkey and Greece must show that they still have muscles,” the political scientist continues. Ankara reacts seriously to such actions of the Greeks, believing that Athens is preparing for a large-scale military clash with the Turkish army in Western Thrace. Another Greek pilot crashed after a collision with a Turkish F-16 near the island of Karpathos. So, a Greek pilot crashed, intercepting a Turkish F-16, and a Turkish pilot died, shot down by a Greek Mirage-2000. An expert assessed the likelihood of a military escalation between the countries. The head of state will definitely add that, for its part, Ankara was regrouping insignificant border forces on its territory, so this should not concern anyone. Photo: Global Look Press
Dozens of tanks and armored personnel carriers of the Greek armed forces were seen on the border between Turkey and Greece, avia.pro reports. – Theoretically, some frivolous border clashes are possible, because each side has territorial claims to each other. Ankara has accused Athens of massive refusals to accept refugees, deport and deny migrants access to asylum procedures, which is a violation of international law. One of the sore points in relations between the two neighboring countries – the so-called “Aegean Question”. According to her, several dozen tanks, up to 60 armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles were seen in the area of ​​the Maritsa River. At the same time, some Western observers believe that if a new armed conflict breaks out in Europe, it could be a clash between Turkey and Greece. It is reported that several dozen tanks, as well as at least 60 armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, were pulled into the area of ​​​​the Maritsa River. – In this regard, Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan is likely to make some kind of incendiary speech, saying that we have always said that the Greeks – people are unreliable, that they violate everything that is possible. Turkey and Greece have proven to be key transit points for migrants. But, since both states are members of NATO and are closely linked by bloc obligations, it is unlikely that this will result in something significant. – Earlier, the Greek armed forces began to dig anti-tank trenches on the banks of the Maritsa River, which forms the border line between Turkey and Greece in Western Thrace. Because it is obvious that they are militarizing the islands. The head of the Greek government told American lawmakers Athens' arguments in favor of acquiring the F-35 stealth fighter from the United States and against Turkey's permission to upgrade its F-16 fighters with new missiles, radar and electronics. So it turns out that, at least at the level of the rhetoric of the policy of the high level do not exclude the use of force to resolve the accumulated contradictions. Meanwhile, according to the expert, things are unlikely to come to a real collision. After unloading, weapons are immediately deployed in already prepared field fortifications. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have made short but perilous journeys across the Aegean to reach northern and western Europe in search of a better life in recent years, according to the Turkish Daily Sabah. Истoчник www.mk.ru On Sunday, it was reported that Turkish security forces had rescued migrants “thrown back” on two life rafts by the Greek Coast Guard at sea. Although for NATO it would be “nightmare” a scenario that the alliance will do its best to prevent. In the end, both countries – members of the North Atlantic Alliance and they will very quickly be put on the stools intended for them. In modern times, tensions between Athens and Ankara in the Aegean have risen due to the migrant crisis. Turkey accuses the Greek authorities of pushing back illegal migrants trying to enter Europe. “The parties must show that they still have muscles”
Greece is concentrating its armed forces in the area adjacent to the Turkish border. Alexei Obraztsov, Leading Research Fellow at the HSE Center for Asian and African Studies. They also stressed that back in early June, “due to threats from Ankara» Athens put the army in the eastern Aegean on high alert. However, there have been no official statements from Greece on this matter yet. In addition, one of the reasons for the demarche of the President of Turkey regarding the entry of Sweden and Finland into NATO was associated with the desire to stabilize and advance in a positive way the position on Northern Cyprus. On the way to the NATO summit in Madrid in June, Erdogan said he refused to meet with Mitsotakis until the Greek prime minister “pulled himself together”: “We said:” I'm sorry, but we don't have time for such a meeting right now. Such messages are actively disseminated by Turkish intelligence. “According to photographs and information provided today by sources in Western Thrace, Greece is intensively moving armored vehicles and tanks to the Turkish border, – note Turkish information resources. Twice – in 1987 and at the beginning of 1996, this topic led to crisis situations close to a serious armed confrontation between two neighboring states. It is alleged that they are deployed en masse about three kilometers from the border with Turkey, which, from the point of view of a number of local media, may indicate a possible start of an armed confrontation between Athens and Ankara. In the 1990s, dangerous maneuvers by military aircraft of NATO allies led to human casualties. Erdogan reacted very sharply to this: “We once again warn Greece to avoid dreams, statements and actions that will lead to regrets, as it was a century ago.” Greece's catastrophic defeat in 1922. “In my opinion, a serious military escalation between Turkey and Greece should not be expected,” comments MK. This is a whole complex of controversial topics between Turkey and Greece regarding the sovereignty of certain territories and related rights in the Aegean Sea and the airspace above it. Later that day, the Turkish leader said that Ankara had no desire to go to war with Greece, but immediately blamed Athens for 147 violations of Turkish airspace.

Most importantly, try to punish spring for coming. And, according to data published by Bild am Sonntag, 47% of them believe that sanctions harm Germany more than Russia. But we still have – and a great – chance for a reboot. The West itself has put the Russian economy (and domestic politics as well) in conditions where it has only one way – to get rid of dependence and finally really develop. Useful Idiots
“In the event of peace on the terms imposed by the Russian side, none of the restrictive measures will be lifted,” said German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. But the thing is, what confirms the words of Scholz, is not at all that there was peace in Ukraine. This division can be seen even in relation to hostilities – Western Ukraine is somehow in no hurry to help the eastern regions, whose inhabitants do not really recognize their own and do not even grieve about their death. What prevented the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements, not engaging in the militarization of Ukraine and pushing it into conflict with Russia? The collective West does not give a damn about Ukraine and the lives of Ukrainians. There, jocks and fitonies like to wear T-shirts with a slogan that can be translated as “no pain – no strength.”
Of course, sanctions will have an effect. Which is useful. Whose plan is an even more interesting question. It is the same with Russia, which just opened the ice on the river of history, which was already ready for ice drift. But. What in Europe seems to the inhabitants of the collapse of the usual way of life, for us – the usual way of life. Here is the answer to the question, according to whose plan perestroika is going on. This is just one aspect of sanctions. By the way, the separation is indirectly confirmed by Zelensky’s removal from the posts of the head of the SBU and the Prosecutor General – somewhere, somewhere, and there should be ideological Ukrainians in the SBU, but go ahead, dozens go over to the side of Russia in the liberated regions. To them – this is the head of the collective West – the USA. Some, like Scholz and his European company, are not aware. Someone, like Russia and America, is aware of “there is no alternative to objective historical processes” and is playing their own game. I have a large fitness club near my house. equality of states, the better,” Lavrov wrote in an article published on Monday. But will it be possible to put Russia in its place, to punish it approximately? Because it will begin to depend on key parameters – energy resources and food (America lifted its own sanctions on the Russian agricultural sector, and not exactly refused oil). Photo: Global Look Press
As a given, it is worth taking the fact that there will be no other peace in Ukraine except for peace on Russia's terms. And plays the role of useful idiots. Actually, the late Zhirinovsky outlined its contours, and the logic of the development of events shows that plus or minus it will be so: everything Russian (for example, the Black Sea region up to Transnistria) will again become Russian, Ukrainian (Volyn with Galicia) will remain Ukrainian. Because Scholz's statement means that perestroika is going according to plan. They need to put Russia, which has suddenly declared its interests, in its place. Oh, it's not for nothing that Dmitry Medvedev recently called European politicians useful idiots. Истoчник www.mk.ru And we must pay tribute to the Americans – they know how to play these games: with a huge degree of probability, Europe, already in a subordinate position, will become just an American colony. “The sooner everyone realizes that there is no alternative to the objective historical processes of forming a multipolar world based on respect for the principle of sovereignty, which is fundamental for the UN Charter and the entire world order. Germans, says Scholz, are suffering from rising fuel and food prices, and look at electricity bills with dismay. This is nonsense.

Not only him, but all his officials. The current Ukrainian regime does not have the ability to resolve the issue through military force and legitimate military operations, and it chooses such tactics of terror. Photo: Telegram-channel “Typical Donetsk”
– Investigators have a lot of ways. Because the shelling of civilian targets that we are observing is not an accident, not a mistake – this is a deliberate policy of terror. When these people fall into the hands of our justice, we will need to consider this as a mitigating circumstance. Because from a military point of view, these attacks do not make any sense. At the same time, there are a lot of opportunities right now. We see that the Kyiv regime does not stand on ceremony not only with the civilian population in the controlled and liberated territory, but also with its military personnel. When the Americans burned the village of Song My in Vietnam (an outrageous case similar to our Khatyn during the Great Patriotic War), not all soldiers followed orders and the officers threatened the soldiers with execution on the spot. Therefore, with a high degree of probability, the identity of all those who gave criminal orders and specific executors will be established. Because, I repeat, military goals are unattainable and they use terror methods. I will only add that there is no statute of limitations for such crimes. A massive counter-offensive will not start there, because the Ukrainian regime does not have such forces, but there may be shelling. Because it is possible that they carry out orders under duress. In addition, HIMARS, which the Americans set up, are controlled from the satellite, and foreign specialists are clearly involved here. Fascist criminals who managed to escape punishment are still being detained all over the world. Because the shelling of peaceful cities today, this activity of intimidation, is of a systemic nature. – Not only to the tribunal. Who can to end up in the dock and will charges be brought against the top leadership of Ukraine? I hope that 50 years will not have to wait, justice will find them much earlier. We must collect this data and make it public. And there are many such cases. To tell the UN, to organize a military tribunal in the future, to show the crimes. The same Internet through which you can collect data. Therefore, those who refuse to carry out even knowingly criminal orders can be shot on the spot. We must not forget that the world community has changed a lot. Lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky answered these questions for our publication. This is a job for the global community. The forms of terrorist threats can be different. They say that the West will not hear us. responsibility. What Russian military investigators do in the special operation zone
The work of Russian military investigators in Donbas will result in criminal cases and an international wanted list for war criminals. Of course, this is a difficult job, and the Ukrainian side will hide this data. There are cases when the same nationalist battalions are used as detachments. In addition, they interview witnesses, find out something through the prisoners. From weakness, not from strength. Photo: Global Look Press
– Responsibility should be borne by persons, starting with the top leadership of the country. Most recently, it was announced that the world's population has exceeded 8 billion, the population of the G7 countries is only 777 million people, and the rest of humanity lives in countries that either do not sympathize with the West or simply support our special military operation. The West is a party to the conflict. – It would be worth starting with it. By the way, I think that the American citizens who direct the firing, if they are installed, should also be held responsible. But we will be heard by a huge number of people in the world. – These are questions for the political leadership of the country. And the purpose of these attacks is exclusively terrorist — whipping up terror in the liberated territories and an attempt to demonstrate that Russia is not in control of the situation. There are all legal grounds for this. First of all, they establish which military units were in this area, what composition of these military personnel. Well, okay. This is all aimed at sowing panic and distrust in the authorities of the Russian Federation and the authorities of the liberated territories. – This is a difficult question, and each time it is clarified in court in its own way. They are well aware of what targets they are hitting. It turned out later, in court. Of course, the servicemen on the spot are afraid to refuse to obey the order. Indeed, in addition to the shelling, there was recently a statement, in my opinion, by the Minister of Defense of the current Kyiv regime, that citizens need to be evacuated from Kherson due to the fact that a massive counteroffensive will begin there. This work is being done for them. Истoчник www.mk.ru Operational work to establish the identity of criminals is quite diverse, and the methods may be different.

Intrigues and betrayal force Zelensky to fire his friends
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky removed from office two heads of law enforcement agencies at once – the SBU and the prosecutor's office. “The cases related to the theft of military and other aid, which are “shelved” and closed, apparently become known to the Americans, because discontent is growing there,” Zharikhin said. Vasily Malyuk Photo: en.wikipedia.org
In place of Venediktova, whose resignation was expected even before the start of the special operation, her deputy Alexei Simonenko was appointed. Only this is unlikely to change anything,” concluded the deputy director of the Institute of the CIS countries. This is evident in the special services. – Information from the SBU can go towards Russia. Ivan Bakanov. There are more of them in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. According to Zelensky, this decision was influenced by numerous facts of treason on the part of employees of structures. Then Bakanov disappeared without a trace for two months. The problems began long before him and will not end after. “Information from these structures really “flows”. Here we are talking about intrigue, where domestic oligarchs and Americans are involved. At the same time, Symonenko is known for being in the Peacemaker database just for fabricating and falsifying a case against the ex-president of the country. “MK” talked with experts about what Zelensky’s decisions hide and can whether they change something. And the SBU left those who now serve in the FSB. The further the special operation develops, the more people will want to share information.”
The expert believes that information from the prosecutor’s office is leaking towards the United States, which forced Zelensky to take such a step. The final decision on the dismissal of Ivan Bakanov and Irina Venediktova has not been made, but so far acting duties have been appointed in their places. But is it really so? – Zelensky appointed Bakanov not as a professional, but as a friend to look after the SBU. They have traitors and defectors everywhere. After all, we regularly announce what they have once again conceived in Kyiv. What then can be claims against Bakanov, who heads the SBU for two years? In quantitative and percentage terms, much more remained in Crimea, and no one was indignant about this. Zelensky didn’t even say about the prosecutor’s office, because there are even fewer of them. He did not want to, but it happened. Instead of Bakanov, Zelensky temporarily appointed Vasily Malyuk, who previously held high positions in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the SBU. In the territories occupied by Russian troops, people begin to quickly change orientation. It is noteworthy that the resignation of Zelensky’s childhood friend was quite expected since June and was associated with a murky story, when Bakanov’s high-ranking subordinates took $20 million from Nezalezhnaya to Europe the day before the start of Russia’s special operation. According to him, Zelensky reacts in this way to show that for the sake of his native country he does not feel sorry for anything, even a friend. Photo: press service of the SBU
In Kyiv, they assure that there is no talk of dismissing Bakanov and Venediktova and they are now only temporarily suspended for verification. When the Crimean events took place, the Ministry of Internal Affairs almost completely remained, like the army. For example, the ideas of all sorts of provocations and operations. Zelensky is simply forced to fire these people. Unlike others, it is more significant and secret, – the political scientist noted. Истoчник www.mk.ru Before becoming deputy head of the SBU, Malyuk headed the main department for combating corruption and organized crime, and also participated in the detention of Bakanov's assistant, the head of the SBU in Crimea, Oleg Kulinich. – Zelensky named 651 episodes and immediately announced that only 60 people had defected from the SBU to the Russian side. Vladimir Zharikhin, Deputy Director of the Institute of CIS Countries believes that the true reasons are indicated. This is a traditional story for the Ukrainian politicians. Betrayal in their ranks has always been, is and will be. This is 1/10, and the rest are other security forces – the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the prosecutor's office, the border troops. “He demonstrates that he cleans up, despite the faces. It is reported that the head of the prosecutor's office withdrew from the investigation of the case of treason against Petro Poroshenko.

At present, industry and the Navy will continue work on a new modification of this missile system designed for submarines. The first regular carrier of the complex will be the frigate of this series “Admiral Golovko”. On August 24, 2021, a contract was signed for the supply of “Zircons” in the variant of ammunition for surface ships. project 885M, designed for the Pacific Fleet. These works will be completed by 2025 and will lead to the rearmament of two types of ships. It is expected that the nuclear cruiser Admiral Nakhimov, which is currently undergoing modernization, will also be armed with these missiles. Control firing was carried out on November 18, 2021, then the same frigate of the Northern Fleet “Admiral Gorshkov” launched a missile at one of the ranges in the White Sea, hitting a sea target with a “direct hit”. The first regular carrier of the new missiles will be the Perm multi-purpose submarine. It was reported that with this test, the missile confirmed its characteristics, and based on its results, it was decided to accept it into service with the Navy. 
Earlier, in 2021, more than a dozen launches of Zircon were performed; from surface and submarine ships. Obligations for the supply of missiles must be met before 2025. Currently, the Reutov NPO Mashinostroeniya (part of the Tactical Missiles Corporation) is mass-producing Zircons, and work is also underway to increase the range rocket flight. According to objective control data, the missile successfully hit a sea target, the flight met the specified parameters, no other details were reported. Later, on December 24, 2021, a salvo launch of the Zircon was announced, which also went without any complaints.

Earlier it was reported that the test launch of the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile, which was carried out at the maximum range, on May 28, was the final one in the framework of state tests of the product from a surface carrier. Secret characteristics 
Despite the fact that the missile should be put into service in the near future, very little is known about its tactical and technical characteristics, and most likely additional information will not appear in the near future due to the high secrecy of this weapon. 
It was stated that the rocket from the complex is capable of reaching speeds equal to 9 Mach numbers (speeds of sound), has a range of more than 1 thousand km. The fundamental difference of this missile is a significantly higher flight speed compared to both other Russian anti-ship missiles and anti-ship missiles in service with other countries, which makes it impossible to intercept it for existing enemy missile defense systems. This is a Yasen-M class missile carrier. Judging by the standard containers in which the missiles are delivered to the ship as part of the tests, the length of the Zircon does not exceed 9 meters, and the diameter — 60 cm. Tsirkon hypersonic missile for placement on surface ships of the Russian Navy can be put into service before the end of 2022. He fired with a Zircon missile. The missile should be used against single and group surface, and in the future also ground targets. The launch was carried out by the Project 22350 frigate Admiral Gorshkov of the Fleet of the Soviet Union. This missile is planned to replace a heavy anti-ship missile P-700 “Granite”. It is assumed that this is a two-stage rocket, its first stage is equipped with a solid rocket engine, and the second — direct-flow air-jet. This allows it to reliably destroy enemy surface ships of various classes: from frigates to aircraft carriers. from the waters of the Barents Sea at a sea target in the White Sea to a maximum range of about 1,000 km. “Zircon” have been developed since 2011, initially the armament was created in marine and aviation versions, later only the marine version was developed. It is alleged that the missile currently has no analogues in the world and is capable of performing a long aerodynamic flight with maneuvering in dense layers of the atmosphere, using its own engine thrust throughout the route.

And always found. By supporting the — you help not only them, but also their families! “I am from the generation that read Solzhenitsyn on samizdat tissue papers. First, Lyudmila Fedorovna went around the local Councils of Veterans and asked for one active person from each who knows his microdistrict well and those who need help. 
Then 14 people came to her: twelve women and two men. On the street, they would sometimes come up and thank you heartily. You have no idea what a deficit it was! But Lyudmila Tereshchenko also remembered other houses, quite tangible, ancient, which she tried to preserve for posterity. Her grandfather came here with his family from Baku in 1929. But, alas, nothing will come of it. Everything was organized literally out of thin air. Shatsky”, in which the district deputy Tereshchenko conducted a reception of the population on Thursdays. But in the early 90s, she was looking not for money, but for food: she asked the entrepreneurs who had just appeared then for the needy sugar, buckwheat and everything they could give. Athlete, Komsomol member, social activist, mother and grandmother — it contained a whole epoch in one itself. Good heart» 250 rubles, we found out by accident. AiF Foundation. Because she always had the truth behind her. Not? I immediately — to the chief physicians of our two children's district polyclinics. This is how we learned that Lyudmila Tereshchenkoin a sense, our colleague. We provide medical, legal and psychological support to wards from the most remote regions. And shortly before that, she organized the “House of Mercy”, which helped the poor, large families and lonely old people. 
House from the air
At the “House of Mercy” no, never had a room of its own. My young neighbors, who had recently become parents, went to the — to queue for milk". They distributed tights through district pediatricians who knew their wards: they distributed among mothers, no more than two pairs per hand. 
Slava walked ahead of Lyudmila Tereshchenko. The popular perestroika slogan “Who if not us?” became fateful for Lyudmila Tereshchenko. «Fundraising — this is a search for money, », — a brisk voice comes from the tube. Where the district deputy Tereshchenko immediately asked: would they agree, having risen to their feet and made a profit, to provide humanitarian assistance to the needy residents of the district? Here she grew up, studied, brought her future husband here to get acquainted with the family. 
The woman of the era
Lyudmila Fedorovna tries to tell her whole life in one conversation. Childhood Address
Lyudmila Fedorovna knows and loves Moscow as much as the hero of the film “Pokrovsky Gates” can love her. This summer, she was worried about whether her donations reach us due to the difficult economic situation in the country, and she called the fund herself. In 1989, Lyudmila Fedorovna became a district deputy, personally bypassing all the apartments (in two eight-story buildings and one five-story building) at its 119th polling station. So I'll tell you now. Lyudmila Fedorovna even saved three wards from prison: “but this is a different story …”
In her house there was a teenage club “Forpost im. A woman of the era who found the post-war city and worked on its future monumental appearance. “The men quickly broke away, and we began to work.” At this time, those wishing to open their own business had to obtain permission, including from the commission of district deputies. I transfer money from each pension to two funds for children. It is symbolic that Lyudmila Fedorovna was really born (mother — doctor, dad — military) on Pravda Street. ”
Pantyhose fundraising
Soon, many Khamovniki merchants knew about the activist and called her to offer help. I was also looking for people — kind and decent. And the truth is: who, if not she — former Komsomol organizer, activist, headman and conqueror of the Caucasus mountains and the Pamir five-thousander (the second category in mountaineering remained in the memory of the students). “One businessman offered 300 pairs of children’s cotton tights, which were not available at that time: only synthetic ones were everywhere. And I advise you! At the dawn of Soviet fundraising, everything was both difficult (because almost no one did it then) and simple (without paperwork and walking around the offices). Then she became the youngest chief engineer of the project of the Mosproekt-3 institute: the embassies near the Moscow Zoo, on Prospekt Mira and on Mosfilmovskaya were designed and built under her supervision. 
And many years later, she, along with other active residents, will save the old wooden estates of artists and writers in the heart of Moscow from demolition. Lyudmila Fedorovna, your money has reached us this month as well. 
Thank you. “I reported on the assistance provided down to the names and phone numbers, but most often the answer was:“ yes, we believe you. However, at least one important house for her survived: a brick six-story building with wooden floors and a green courtyard of her childhood. Back in 1989, she organized in her Khamovniki a charitable organization “House of Mercy”, which exists to this day. And if someone asks for money, complaining about a small pension, she will sternly ask: “Do you know what orphan diseases are? Surprisingly, no one refused. Conqueror of mountains and high-rise buildings
The fact that Lyudmila Fedorovna has been transferring from each pension for several years to the AiF. Good heart» helps children and adults with severe and rare diseases. If there are many of us, we can treat children for whom our healthcare does not have enough money. Now there are regular elite high-rise buildings. Someone is looking for a good nursing home and is afraid that they will be deceived, but Lyudmila Fedorovna — there is faith. Lyudmila Fedorovna — Muscovite in the third generation, former engineer of the design institute “Mosproekt-3” and, perhaps, one of the oldest fundraisers in the USSR. She issued an automatic write-off from the savings bank account in her branch of Sberbank, where the pension is transferred. We — living witnesses of a time gone forever». 
Some of the remaining wards call a number they have learned by heart (in three decades!) to ask them to find an employee by Easter — wash windows and floors. Moms — for pantyhose, old ladies — for warm jackets. In the sixties, she made projects for the capital's stadiums and gyms for the new Moscow. “Then, right after the” price holiday “, very difficult times began.
