Today, taking part in the action “Garden of Memory”, I remembered a worthy person with whom I was familiar, ” said Elena Druzhinina. & mdash; His name was Babkin George Sergeyevich.

The next generations should understand how much people gave for the Victory and independence of our country. If you look at the statistics of the volunteers who went to the front in the first days of the war, you can see that among them there were a lot of representatives of the scientific intelligentsia, while only one third of them returned from the front. Today we remember the patriotism of scientists, including Caesar Kunikov, who, as you know, was the commander of the legendary landing on Malaya Zemlya. This is AndrewBochvar, who developed many alloys used in military equipment, Boris Paton, the creator of armor welding technology, and many others. We must remember their labor feat. I really hope that the young trees that we planted will grow beautifully and turn into a blooming garden for the sake of future generations, recalling the days of war and the greatness of our people, “said the first Deputy General Director of JSC “Science and Innovation”, Doctor of Technical Sciences Alexey Dubov.

When will the heat wave subside in Moscow?

Last weekend, on June 19 and 20, the heat wave came to Central Russia and Moscow. The thermometer columns in the afternoon rose above +30°. Meteorologists predict a series of temperature records and abnormal heat in the week from 21 to 27 June. The weather in Moscow will correspond to the normal climate of Cairo in June, according to the website of the weather center “Phobos”.

What records are we talking about?

In the coming week in European Russia is expected to “African heat” and drought: the temperature will rise to abnormal values, and there will be no rain, warn in “Phobos”. The temperature background will exceed the norm in June (in Moscow – +17;) at 13-15 degrees. In this regard, the region will have an orange level of weather danger.

Heat records will be set almost daily in central Russia. These are air temperatures that have never been recorded on similar days before in the entire more than a century-old history of meteorological observations. In Moscow, the number of such records can reach five or six. In addition, it is likely that the capital will have an absolute maximum average temperature of all of June. The previous record,+34.7, was set back in 1901.

Two records of the maximum temperature have already been set over the weekend in St. Petersburg, said the head of the prognostic center “Meteo” Alexander Shuvalov in an interview with RT. During the week, highs are expected in the central part of Russia from Veliky Novgorod to Nizhny Novgorod. More than 100 temperature records are predicted for the territory from Vologda in the north to Orel, Kursk, Shuvalov said.

What caused the heat wave in Central Russia?

The reason for the drought and heat in European Russia was a blocking anticyclone that was established over the Russian plain (extending from the Urals to the shores of the Black, Caspian, Azov, White and Baltic Seas, & ndash; approx. АиФ.ги), & ndash; said RIA Novosti scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand.

“A stationary anticyclone is established, and air masses saturated with moisture run along its periphery, but they do not get close to the center,” the meteorologist explained.

This is why it is called a blocking anticyclone.

When will the heat subside?

The air will continue to warm up until Thursday, June 24, and will reach +34 & hellip;+36°, said Vilfand. Then the anticyclone will shift, and the Central Federal District will be in its warm part. On Friday, June 25, clouds will appear in the sky. But still, until Saturday, June 26, inclusive, the week will be quite hot: +29 & hellip;+34 & deg;.

In “Phobos” also report that only by the weekend over the center of Russia will form clouds and slightly refresh the air in the afternoon to +29 “+ 34”. At night, the thermometer will show values that are typical for the daytime climate.:+20 or slightly higher. 

Finally, the abnormal heat will subside only in the last week of June (June 28-30). Daytime temperatures will drop to +24…+29 & deg;, and breathing will become much easier.

According to Shuvalov’s forecast, short-term rains may pass by the weekend. As a result, the capital will get rid of the 35-degree heat.

What will the weather be like in Moscow in the next five days?

According to the forecast of “Phobos”, this week in Moscow will be low-cloud and calm weather. On Monday, June 21, the forecast is +31 & hellip;+33 & deg;, on Tuesday, June 22,– +33…+35 & deg;. From Wednesday to Friday, June 23-25, the air in the afternoon will warm up to +34 & hellip;+36°. Night temperatures on weekdays will be +21…+24 & deg;.


What is the penalty for buying real vaccination certificates without vaccination?

Some Telegram chats sell illegal services and, as it turned out, among them there is the preparation of quite official certificates of vaccination. АиФ.ги I figured out how such a document differs from a fake one and what threatens the performers of the illegal service and their clients.

What are the “real” but illegal certificates?

If the usual forgery does not pass the check on the Unified Portal of Public Services and Functions (EPSU), then these certificates are of a different level-they are prepared by the doctors themselves and enter information about the alleged vaccination in a special state register (i.e. such documents are checked).

How the service is organized, the correspondent of the Telegram channel Baza found out, having made a “virtual” vaccination. It costs from 10 to 20 thousand rubles. The entire registration process is identical to the official one, with the exception of the injection itself-the ampoule with the vaccine is simply thrown out. To receive the certificate, the client must provide passport data and the SNILS number, as well as have a confirmed account on Public Services, in which they will create a “diary of observations”.

What motivates citizens to apply for such a service?

In Russia, the rate of vaccination is quite low. According to open sources, the proportion of vaccinated people in the country does not exceed 10%. At the same time, in many countries, this figure has already exceeded 20% -30%.

For this reason, some regions of Russia are considering the introduction of mandatory vaccination. Distrustful citizens are afraid of this prospect, some do not want to get vaccinated. In addition, to speed up the pace of vaccination and motivate Russians, the authorities organized sweepstakes with solid prizes. So, for example, in Moscow, among the vaccinated, a car will be played.

All this pushes those who are absolutely not ready to get vaccinated, to look for alternative ways and buy fictitious certificates.

What kind of punishment can follow for issuing an illegal certificate?

Despite the fact that the document is prepared by doctors according to all the rules, this is a serious offense-both on the part of the contractor and on the part of the customer, he explained АиФ.ги Lawyer of the Center for Medical Law Andrey Karpenko. As in the case of the usual fake certificate, here we are talking about forgery of the document, because the vaccination is not done in the end.

“There is intent on both sides, both the doctor and the patient, who understands perfectly well that he will not be given the vaccine, but the certificate will be issued. Here you can pick up three or four elements of an offense, ” the expert noted.

According to Article 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, “Forgery, production or circulation of forged documents, state awards, stamps, seals or letterheads”, performers can be put in prison or imposed forced labor for up to two years.

Customers for the use of fakes can be fined up to 80 thousand rubles or in the amount of their income for six months, as well as arrested for up to six months or assigned mandatory work (up to 480 hours) or correctional labor (up to two years).

In addition, the owners of such fictitious documents endanger the lives of many people, explains Karpenko. They still remain a potential source of infection, although according to the certificate they should not. The creation of a certificate and its possession falls under Article 236 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules”.

What is the threat under the article on violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules?

Here we are talking about provoking a mass disease or poisoning of people through negligence, as well as creating such a threat. For this, they are fined 500-700 thousand rubles, may be deprived of the right to hold a certain position for two or three years, or put (sent to work) for up to two years.

At the same time, if the violation leads to someone’s death, the punishment will be even stricter. This is, for example, if the owner of a fake certificate infects someone with a coronavirus, and they die from complications. In this case, the fine will increase to one to two million rubles (or in the amount of income for one to three years), and the prison term or forced labor will increase to three to five years.

The mitigating factor that the customer of the certificate did not assume someone’s death will not release him from responsibility.

Do the authorities fight the black market of certificates and can they detect forgeries?

The authorities are already aware of illegal sales of these certificates. The head of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications, Alexander Khinshtein, sent a letter to the Prosecutor General’s Office with a request to monitor checks on the provision of such illegal services and take measures.

As Andrey Karpenko notes, the services may well calculate the violators.


In Moscow, due to the heat, an orange level of danger was declared

The Hydrometeorological Center announced an orange level of weather danger in the Moscow region until 23 hours on June 21 due to abnormal heat.

The agency’s website notes that in such weather conditions, “there is a possibility of natural disasters, damage”.

According to the forecast, the air will warm up to plus 33 degrees. The leading employee of the weather center “Phobos” Alexander Sinenkov suggests that this way the temperature record for this day, dated 1956, will be broken. This specialist said in an interview with RIA Novosti. According to the weather forecaster, in the capital on Monday, plus 31-33, in the Moscow region – plus 29-34. The record heat on this day was observed in 1956, when the thermometer rose to 31.1 degrees.

The forecaster added that until the evening it will be cloudy, without precipitation, the wind is southern, 1-6 meters per second. The atmospheric pressure is about 752 millimeters of mercury, which is higher than normal.

Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor recommended to reduce the working day in hot weather conditions. When the air temperature is above 30.5 degrees, the working time should be reduced to four hours, experts say. They also reminded about the need to drink enough water on hot days and eat more vegetables and fruits.


“I hope they don’t kidnap me.” An American woman in love with Russia was killed by a repeat offender?

Interest in Russia and the desire to know the mysterious Russian soul turned into fatal consequences for a 34-year-old US citizen Catherine Sirow. After a large-scale search, the woman’s body was found with traces of violent death.

Missing person

“The UK investigators are appealing to the residents of Bor and the Nizhny Novgorod region for help in the search for a missing foreign citizen,” the agency said in a statement, ” The investigative bodies of the Russian IC in the Nizhny Novgorod region are continuing to investigate a criminal case initiated on the fact of an unknown disappearance.”a foreign citizen. Currently, the investigation is checking the information that on June 15, 2021, at about 18: 30, the girl left the house 106 on Maxim Gorky Street, Bor, where she permanently lived, after which she got into a vehicle unidentified by the investigation and headed in the direction of D. Rekshino, Borsky district, Nizhny Novgorod Region.

On the evening of June 15, Catherine sent a message to her mother in the United States, saying that she was traveling in a car with a strange man and hoped that she would not be abducted. But, apparently, at this moment, the woman did not feel particularly threatened. However, she did not get in touch again.

The alarm was raised by Katherine’s friends in Nizhny Novgorod, who contacted the security service of the Lobachevsky State University in Nizhny Novgorod, where she studied. The university, through official channels, reported the student missing, after which the police, the Investigative Committee, as well as volunteer detachments joined the search.

The search was conducted in the area where the last signal of the American woman’s phone was recorded. At first, combing the area did not give results, but in the morning of June 19, information came-a woman was found dead in a field with traces of violent death. By this time, law enforcement officers already had information about who could have committed the crime.

After serving in Afghanistan & mdash; University in Nizhny Novgorod

Catherine Sirow was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1987. After graduating from high school, she decided to join the army, joining the US Marine Corps. It is known that Catherine served in North Carolina, and then was on a business trip to the combat zone in Afghanistan.

After leaving the army at the age of 24, she attended the University of California, Davis, where she studied art history and interior design.

After graduating from university, Catherine decided to go to Russia, where she was going to get a law degree. She explained this rather unexpected step by the fact that as a child in America, emigrants from the post-Soviet space often took her for a Russian, saying that she looked very much like a Russian.

Catherine entered the first year of the master’s degree program at the Law Faculty of Nizhny Novgorod University, while simultaneously studying in the Russian language program. Initially, the American woman lived in one of the local families, and then began to rent an apartment.

She had big plans for the future

At the university, they say that they knew Catherine only from the good side, she studied diligently, and was very friendly with teachers and classmates. The American woman said that she liked life in Russia.

Friends of Catherine said that the details of their personal relationships, she did not share. They only knew that some time ago the American woman met with a local young man, but then the couple broke up. However, the former lovers managed to maintain friendly relations.

According to those who knew her, Catherine did not have any feelings of anxiety and gloomy thoughts. She worked as an English teacher in a private school and was going to develop in this direction further.

An examination of the security cameras revealed that on the day of the disappearance, Catherine visited the store. Her behavior was completely natural, and she obviously felt no threat.

In a car with a repeat offender

For the second time, the cameras caught the American woman as she was riding in the passenger seat of a car. The woman was looking out at the street, the passenger window was down, and again, it didn’t look like she was afraid of anything at that moment.

Law enforcement officers were able to quickly identify the driver. It turned out to be a 43-year-old Russian, previously convicted several times, including for robbery and rape.

Soon the operatives were on the threshold of the suspect’s house. At that time, the fate of Catherine was not yet established, and the man, after some hesitation, began to give evidence.

“The suspect is cooperating with the investigation. Currently, investigative actions are being carried out to consolidate the evidence base. In the near future, the issue of charging the person involved in the criminal case and choosing a preventive measure will be resolved, ” the IC reported.

Could the perpetrator have lured Katherine through a dating site?

On June 20, the court decided to send the suspect into custody until August 15. According to the telegram channel Ni Mash, at the trial, the man said that with Catherine on June 15, they really went in his car to the forest. There he raped her, and then decided to kill her: first, he beat her, then stabbed her several times. According to one version, he did this after the American woman promised to report the rapist to the police.

It is not yet clear whether this meeting was completely accidental, or the recidivist lured Catherine on a date. The fact is that the suspect led a fairly active life on the Internet, in particular, on dating sites. In the questionnaires, the man reported that he wanted to meet the “dream girl” for “love and romance, a serious relationship”. He did not write anything about his criminal past, but he claimed thatis an artist, showing pictures of paintings. However, there is no certainty that these paintings were actually painted by the suspect.

Catherine’s profile was also posted on a dating site. It is possible that a certified specialist in the history of art could be interested in paintings painted by a man.

However, unfortunately, the meeting with the recidivist was fatal for the American woman.
