The government will spend almost 43 million rubles on the fight against crows on the roof. :: Society :: RBC

“If they’re going to hire falconers, that’s a great option. If this money is spent on some reasonable method of scaring away crows, and not their extermination, then this is a sensible decision, ”the expert said.

According to Schneider, killing the birds could have the opposite effect, as new birds from the wild will come to replace the killed crows.

Elena Chernova, an employee of the coordination center of the Bird Conservation Union, told RBC that there is no such number of crows in Moscow that needs to be exterminated.

“The number of crows in Moscow has been falling for several years. Their number was reduced by five times without any extermination. They cannot harm the roof in any way if the roof is not made of plasticine, ”explained Chernov.

According to her, it makes sense to use hawks and falcons against pigeons, whose droppings can damage the roof.


Thorns will be removed from the monument to Lenin in Magadan to scare away birds

After the publication of this article, a representative of the Ministry of Natural Resources told RBC that mass crowds of crows pose a threat, since these birds are carriers of diseases, worsen the sanitary condition, harm green spaces and buildings, monuments of architecture.

“Of those used in domestic and foreign practice, an effective means of protection against unwanted accumulations of birds is the use of specially trained hawks and falcons as biorepellants. To achieve the best results, a group of working birds should ideally consist of four or five hawks and two or three falcons, with which four or six operators (falconers) should work in shifts, ”the interlocutor of RBC explained.

“The financing of these works includes the maintenance of the required number of birds of prey, veterinary services, scientific and methodological support of work and genetic control over the livestock of birds of prey, the purchase of equipment and transport support. These works will be carried out by the FGBI VNII Ecology, – he added.

In the summer of 2019 at the lobbies of Moscow metro stations appeared stickers with the image of silhouettes of predators to scare away small birds, which often shattered on the transparent glass of the lobby.

Most often, birds pose a danger to aviation infrastructure facilities. In September 2019, Zhukovsky Airport near Moscow ordered bioacoustic devices and mirror balls for scaring away birds. In 2015, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov dispersed birds at the airport in Grozny using an unmanned aerial vehicle.

In 2017, Lieutenant General of the Federal Security Service Sergei Khlebnikov statedthat the Kremlin uses noise systems and other technical means to scare away crows.

€ 4 trillion in corporate debt must be repaid by 2025, according to S&P Global Ratings

(Agence Ecofin) – According to the rating agency S&P Global Ratings, European companies will have to repay 4,000 billion euros of debt by 2025. 14% of this amount is speculative while economic conditions in Europe remain uncertain.

European companies rated and monitored by S&P Global Ratings will have to repay debt by 2025, the total amount of which is estimated at € 4,000 billion, we learn from an analysis published by the American rating agency. The peak of debt repayment concerned by the analysis will be reached in 2022, with an amount of € 807 billion.

Numerous debt issues made in the first half of 2020 contributed to a 5% increase in the amount of debt of European companies due in 2025. “Following more recent loans, the outstanding debt of European companies, which will mature by 2025, has increased by 17%, the highest since the start of the year”, S&P Global Ratings explained, in a note consulted by theEcofin Agency.

The rating agency explains, however, that 84% of expected repayments relate to on a debt good quality for investors. But we also note that an amount of 644.3 billion € is classified in the speculative category, that is to say there is a risk that the repayment will not be carried out normally. In addition, several analyzes of the European economic outlook are quite pessimistic.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the gross domestic product of the euro zone will fall by 10.2% in 2020 and the recovery of 6.4% expected in 2021 will not make it possible to catch up. It will therefore be necessary to wait until 2023 to begin to see lasting positive indicators. The other point is that if interest rates eventually start to rise again, it will be difficult for these companies to refinance their debt.

The analysis of corporate or government debt is important, because generally, investors in this debt are managers of investment or pension funds who have promised their clients a specific return after a certain period. With a debt market dominated by low yields and high risk of default, the ability to survive of many millions of people around the world is at risk.

For the investment and asset management branch of German insurer Allianz, the European Central Bank will have to intervene. “In the face of a high degree of uncertainty over the course of the covid-19 pandemic, low inflation and the macroeconomic outlook, continued support for monetary policy and the maintenance of an accommodative bias are essential and [la BCE, Ndlr] stands ready to do more ”, can we read in a note the content of which was reported by Boursorama.
