In Montenegro, renewed tension between the Serbian Orthodox Church and the State

In the streets of Niksic and Pljevlja on Wednesday evening May 13, tear gas jets responded to the anger of the demonstrators. More or less tense gatherings took place in several cities of Montenegro after the detention for 72 hours of Mgr Joanikije and seven other priests of the eparchy of Budimlje-Niksic, which belongs to the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) .

They are accused of having organized the gathering of several thousand people on May 12 on the occasion of Saint Basil of Ostrog, an extremely popular festival among the Orthodox faithful in the region. The SPC synod and many of the faithful present on Tuesday said the rally was spontaneous and demanded their release.

The return of the controversial religion law

“It seems that we can prepare for a new opposition between the Church and the government”, commented the political scientist Ljubomir Filipovic on the social network Twitter. The SPC and the Montenegrin government have been clashing since last December over a new law on freedom of religion. The Serbian Orthodox Church, the country’s main religious organization, and tens of thousands of worshipers see the text as an attempt by the state to usurp SPC properties.

Last winter saw unprecedented protests in the country, independent from Serbia since 2006. But the arrival of Covid-19 and the measures taken to limit the outbreak of the epidemic in the country (officially 324 cases and nine dead as of May 13) ended these rallies. The demonstrators renewed this week’s movement this winter, chanting in particular: “We are not leaving our sanctuaries. “

Impatient devotees and politicians in the countryside

Jovana Marovic, executive director of the Montenegrin NGO Politikon, says that citizens are showing “Loss of patience”, while the dialogue started in February has also been interrupted by the pandemic. “Even if we can debate the relevance of organizing such a gathering of faithful on this date, it should be noted that during the crisis caused by the coronavirus, neither the opposition nor the government announced the resumption of negotiations around the law when conditions are favorable “, she notices.

Montenegro is above all in an important electoral year. “The government is using pandemic measures to choose the date that best suits it for the vote, while part of the opposition is using mobilization around this law for its campaign”, says Jovana Marovic, who is concerned about an atmosphere that is not conducive to democratic elections.

In the town of Pljevlja on Wednesday evening, participants threw stones at the police. Several dozen minor injuries were counted on both sides. New rallies were announced Thursday, May 14 in the evening.


Between twin sisters, unconditional support

“We are one person divided in two”

Olivia, 22

“With Julie, my twin sister, we were raised alone by my mother and separated from kindergarten, at the age of 3. Physically. The only thing that sets us apart is its dimples. In the extended family, we are often confused at first. However, we are of different characters, we do not have the same musical, artistic or food tastes.

My sister has a more sociable temper than me. She is cheerful, easy going. I admire her because she says what she thinks. Above all, she says what I think. But since she is also a bit shy, I speak for her or tell her what to do. I protected her a lot while sometimes being demanding. She is not very organized, I am calm and pragmatic. There was never any jealousy between us. I stood up for him, I helped him to assert himself. Julie is grateful to me for playing this big sister role. Even today, as she doesn’t like to make appointments, I pretend to be her, on the phone, changing my first name. Or else I make her a list of what she should put in her suitcase. She brings me her zest for life, her good humor that rubs off on me. We are like one person divided in two.

However, I would not want to have twin children, because of the eyes of others. We are considered twin, not as a whole person. At school, some classmates even asked us: “If I pinch you, does your sister feel it?” “ Prejudices persist. The twins are neither superheroes nor magicians. This strong bond between them comes from the fact that they developed at the same time, receiving the same education. “

“When one has a problem, the other will support it”

Lucie, 19

“After almost six months in Australia, in a family where I took care of the children, I returned to France, just before confinement. I found my parents and my twin sister, Marie, who is preparing for the medical entrance exam. It was the first time that we had been separated for so long. We were in contact, two or three times a week. Already, before, each had their own life. We are not alike, but we will think the same thing at the same time.

As a child, I often relied on my sister. She was much more serious, more committed than I was. For example, in my calendar, in elementary school, I didn’t write anything down, because I knew she was going to do it. In college, we gained autonomy. We were left to decide to be in separate classes. Grandparents, more distant family, parents of friends tended to put us in the same box, saying “you”, and that annoyed us. As if we had a character for two. We rebelled a little against that. We wanted to be differentiated. Going abroad was a way of asserting myself.

I can tell everything to my twin. She doesn’t judge me. We live the same things, at the same age, on an equal footing. When one has a concern, the other will support it. If my sister is wrong, in front of the others I support her and we explain ourselves afterwards. Between us, the arguments do not last. It’s fortunate to have a twin sister. “


Agreement between deputies and senators on the state of health emergency

The text, which extends the state of health emergency until July 10, must now be validated today Saturday, May 9 by the Senate and the Assembly, whose vote will be worth final adoption.

The deputies and the senators found a compromise on the penal responsibility of the public decision-makers as private, brought to take measures to allow the exit of confinement. The Senate had voted at the beginning of the week a device to adjust this responsibility, by invoking in particular the concerns of certain mayors, who fear being implicated in the event of transmission of the coronavirus during the reopening of the schools from Monday.

An amendment to the public health code

But the Assembly had unraveled this device, recalling that this question was already taken into account in the Fauchon law. The new version of the Assembly was contested by the opposition, who saw it as a way of “Disempower” the government, in the event of procedures on its management of the crisis. And each side accused each other of organizing a form of“impunity”.

Finally, the compromise proposes an amendment to the public health code to take account of “Skills, powers and means” available “The perpetrator”, in “The crisis situation which justified the state of health emergency”.

Data that will only be kept for 3 months

Deputies and senators also agreed on the other sensitive point of the text: the establishment of a follow-up of patients with coronavirus thanks to a “information system”, a follow-up file linked to Health Insurance.

The parliamentarians limited the backup of the data in this file to 3 months, different from the Inria StopCovid application project, about which questions of anonymity arise in particular. It is a population tracking system, by means of a very short distance exchange of information by radio waves, which is still in the testing phase.

The president of the LR group in the National Assembly Damien Abad estimated that “Two red lines have been lifted”, and announced that his group would vote the text thus modified in the day of Saturday.

For their part, PS deputies and senators indicate that they will vote against, “Even if there is progress”: “Our main criticism is that there is nothing in the text on social emergency”.

The bill extending the state of health emergency also provides for the possibility of quarantine or isolation upon arrival on national territory in certain cases.

President Emmanuel Macron has already announced that he will seize the Constitutional Council to verify the legality of the text, while the oppositions have expressed their concerns.

Stop Covid: anonymity, efficiency … What you need to know about the tracking app

Jawa 350 – whom to fear and who not to?

The eternal dispute between “Java” and “Izhi” after the race is not closed: “made” “Planet 5” – “do” and “Jupiter”.

The most popular motorcycles of the Soviet era were “Czechs” “Java” and domestic “IZhs”. Jawa was a dream as a comfortable and pretty foreign car with a more revving engine, which still needed to be “pulled out”.

Those who did not have Java rode the line from the Izhevsk plant, assuring themselves and the rest that Planets are no worse, and in many ways even better than “Yav” – more powerful, high-torque, more durable.

Soviet motorcycles such as IZH Planet-5 were designed “With a margin”. “Planet-5” with the indicated “maximum speed” with a stroller of 80 km / h is capable of accelerating along a level road to 93 km / h, and without a stroller and 130 km / h “go” – in principle, like the Jawa 350 without a stroller.

It would seem that the race on the Jawa 350 and IL Planet 5 of the same, 1991 model year, with wheelchairs was supposed to put an end to the dispute. However, motorists explained the advantage received by Java, that she “Mistaken” by the “Planet”: the P-5 has 22 power, while the Jawa 350 has 26 hp. Java itself is lighter, and its stroller is much lighter. A different picture can be observed if you arrange a race not with Planet 5, but with IL “Jupiter-5” – It just corresponds to the power and speed of the engine.

“Hacking” with the enemy “by forces” “Java” will “swallow dust”, sure lovers of Soviet motorcycles.

During the presentation of the Hongqi E115 concept, it was impossible to look into the cabin – the manufacturer darkened all the windows. Spy shots showed what to expect in the interior of the new product.

So car equipped touch screen infotainment system, digital dashboard, as well as a touchscreen climate control system. The center console and seats of the Chinese SUV are finished in Alcantara.
