Khaberni website: Elham Shaheen: Morsi asked to meet me

Tell me – Egyptian actress Ilham Shaheen revealed that the director of the office of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi threatened her to agree to meet him, but she refused.

Shaheen said during a television interview, that she “decided to confront the battle with the terrorist Brotherhood on behalf of the artists.”

She added: “The Brotherhood fabricated pictures of her and put her face on scandalous photos, and it was later proven that they were rigged.”

She pointed out, “She obtained a historical ruling to close the (Al-Hafiz) channel for a period of 6 months, and a precedent took place for the first time in the history of Egypt, which is the closure of a channel by court ruling, after she filed more than one case on the channel for insulting her on the channel’s screen, pointing out that the broadcaster who had insulted her accompanied A number of veils on the channel’s screen showed her some forged images that were falsely claimed to be a professor at Al-Azhar, but Al-Azhar University sent to the court evidence that he was not a faculty member and was imprisoned during the Morsi era.

She stressed that “Mohamed Morsi tried to attract the artists and act with politeness with them, but it did not succeed, stressing that the director of Morsi’s office tried to contact her a lot to inform her of Morsi’s desire to meet her.”

She explained that the director of Morsi’s office threatened her, saying: “If we want we, we will answer you,” adding that she said to him, “If you talk to me again, he will report about you,” and his response would be, “You are reporting about who, O Madam, we are the state.”

She stated that she had told Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi after the success of the June 30 revolution, that “she was about to commit suicide” at the time of Chancellor Adly Mansour taking over the country after the Brotherhood was overthrown, pointing out that the Egyptians dazzled the world on June 30.

Mohamed Morsi had assumed his duties on June 30, 2012, and he was removed from his position on June 30, 2013 after demonstrations invaded the country calling for his departure and imprisonment since the date of his isolation, until his death on June 17, 2019, after several charges were brought against him, including communications with Qatar, Hamas, and disclosure.

Banks come up with a new restriction on plastic cards for Russians

Credit organizations have limited their ability to go negative

The pandemic took everyone by surprise: businessmen and simple hard workers, officials and bankers. If there are those who come out of the coronacrisis on horseback and in the black, then they are clearly a minority. In the face of a new economic disaster, everyone is equal, but someone is more equal. While the Russians make ends meet, the banks decided to dig a bigger hole between these ends. Financial institutions have limited customers the ability to go negative if they run out of money on a debit card. This service is called overdraft. This is something like a “promised payment” for mobile operators, when, after the money has expired, the client’s balance is not disconnected from the connection, but a minus appears on the account, which must then be covered. So, against the backdrop of a pandemic, banks more than halved overdraft limits. According to the results of May, it was possible to get a minus on a debit card by an average of 20.4 thousand rubles, Equifax credit bureau found out. Back in March, the average limits were 60% higher, and in November last year even reached 60 thousand rubles. In addition, credit institutions reduced the issuance of cards with an overdraft option by 8 times compared to March, when the coronacrisis was just beginning. Now everything is different. For three months, the population and business went bankrupt, incomes fell, and therefore banks no longer believe in the solvency of customers. In the language of bankers, this is called “rising credit risk.” In fact, overdraft for card users was a profitable loan, as a rule, interest-free for a period specified by the bank – 60 or 100 days. However, now this shop has been covered up: it is worthless for impoverished Russians to spend money on not impoverished banks at all, and even not to pay a bribe!

According to statistics, as of June 1, 903 thousand cards with an overdraft option are in circulation. The total limit on them amounted to 13.2 billion rubles. That is, almost a million people could not be afraid to be dishonored at the cash desk of the store, if “there is not enough money on your card.” For some, the opportunity to go into the red was the only way to reach the salary. From this, the bank received customer loyalty and interest, if suddenly the cardholder greatly delayed repayment of the debt. During the crisis, such grateful customers suddenly became the most undesirable: why lend without interest if these 13 billion rubles can be scrolled at a rate of 10% per annum?

However, banks are also not the most successful period. Their main source of income – loans – is sagging. The pandemic forced people to repay their debts and cooled consumer fervor for new ones. There are more of those who have not mastered loan repayment: the volume of “bad” debts has increased. Unlucky for banks and with additional sources of income. In the name of anti-crisis support for business, the authorities limited acquiring fees (what the company pays for banks for each non-cash purchase), canceled “bank roaming”, made transfers in the Quick Payment System temporarily free. The threat of cancellation of commissions when paying for housing and communal services also hangs over financial organizations. And it’s also an annoying obligation to grant credit deferrals to companies and individuals who lost their income!

Bankers have already been so driven that they threatened to pay card service and even calls to call centers in return. This proposal was made by the Association of Banks of Russia. By the way, the threat is very real. Now the Central Bank does not have the authority to “beat the banks”, if they decide to cash in on the issue of cards and additional services. True, the head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, promised to request such powers in the State Duma, but this is clearly not a quick process.

But is it really hard for a bank to live? Just the other day, the Prime Minister signed a decree on subsidies to banks in the amount of 22.5 billion rubles for preferential car loans. And this is just one of the multibillion-dollar subsidies that banks will receive from the state to recover lost income from credit deferrals, zero wage loans and other banking support measures. Meanwhile, vaunted soft loans and deferrals are not so easy to get. As shown by “test purchases” from the Minister of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov and business ombudsman Boris Titov, banks approve at best a third of the applications, and most of them are simply ignored. Unpleasant statistics are also confirmed by the real stories of businessmen who counted on the promised assistance, but received refusals or unsubscribes from banks in response to their application.

In any case, someone who, and banks shall not remain aground. In recent years, the state has systematically raked large banks for itself, nationalizing them under the guise of reorganization. The largest of the large and so belong to the state. All attacks on the banking sector, such as limiting acquiring commissions, are just light slaps from the authorities, more like stroking. If something is taken away from usurers, then only in order to give more later. Money is everything, but banks have it and should be in excess.

Authorities pushed Sberbank from Gostekh, which he invented


, Text: Elias Kasmi



The Ministry of Communications and Mass Media has proposed a new version of the draft resolution on the experimental launch of the Gostech digital platform, in which it excluded the proposal to appoint Sberbank as its operator. The Bank is the initiator of its creation, and the idea to make it the operator of its creation was expressed by the Ministry in a previous modification of the draft resolution of June 10, 2020.

Platform without operator

A digital platform with the unofficial name of “Gostech” can remain without a single operator. This follows from the revised version of the Russian Government’s Ministry of Communications decision on an experiment to create this platform – all references to specific companies were excluded from it, as Kommersant wrote.

After the launch, Gostekh is expected to take on the interaction of citizens and business with public services and information systems of government agencies. The updated draft resolution is aimed at coordination with other departments, and its discussion should take place on June 29, 2020.

The idea to create a digital platform “Gostech” belongs to Sberbank. After amendments to the draft resolution were made at the launch stage, the platform can use the experience of not only Sberbank, but also its competitors, including the VTB and Rostelecom consortium. At the end of March 2020, they created a joint venture, Big Data Platform, whose main activity was the development and monetization of products based on big data processing using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies.

Several operators can appoint a digital platform for Sberbank

According to the draft resolution, the Gostech platform is designed to integrate a number of public services. These include, among other things, cadastral registration of real estate, rental of state property, as well as obtaining a digital policy of compulsory medical insurance (MHI). The operators of these services after the launch of the platform will be Rosimushchestvo, Rosreestr and the MHI Fund.

Previous version of the project and participation of Sberbank

Sberbank initiated the creation of the Gostech platform. In mid-April 2020, he first demonstrated to the Government of Russia the concept of “Gostekh” for the migration of government services and authorities. The Ministry of Communications and the Analytical Center under the Government also took part in its development.

Sberbank appeared in a previous version of the draft resolution, on the experiment to create Gostekh, sent by the Ministry of Communications for approval to other interested departments on June 10, 2020. As CNews reported, the bank was indicated as a participant in the experiment to deploy the platform and the department even offered to give it the powers of its operator.

Representatives of the Ministry emphasized that the transfer of the Gostech development to Sberbank does not imply any expenses from the federal budget. However, a number of experts expressed concern that this transfer carries the risks of a merger between Gostekh and the bank’s information systems. This can lead to a monopolization of the interaction of the state with individuals and businesses within the framework of the provision of financial services, insurance, communication services and other products of its ecosystem.

Other possible platform members

The proposal of the Ministry of Communications for the appointment of Sberbank as the Gostekh operator was preceded by a joint appeal of the heads of VTB, Russian Post and Rostelecom to the Prime Minister of Russia Mikhail Mishustin June 9, 2020 As CNews reported, in their appeal they proposed not to be limited only to the developments of Sberbank during the creation of Gostekh.

As an alternative, they proposed their own technologies along with the State Unified Cloud Platform (GEOP) Gosoblako, about which CNews wrote about the experimental launch in late August 2019.

The heads of VTB, Russian Post and Rostelecom made an additional proposal to create an interagency working group to develop a new concept for Gostekh, which would include, among other things, experts from the business community. They also insisted that the list of decisions for the creation of Gostekh should not be closed.

In their opinion, the launch of Gostech will require access to the widest possible number of developers, as well as compliance with a policy of non-discriminatory integration and the rejection of the use of non-free software of foreign origin

Gosvseh – Kommersant newspaper No. 112 (6833) from 06/29/2020

The government decided to basicly depersonalize the new Gostech digital platform for interaction between citizens and business with the state. The Ministry of Communications and Mass Media has eliminated the mention of specific companies from the revised version of the draft resolution on the experimental launch of the platform. That is, Sberbank, which, in fact, was the initiator of the project, and its competitors represented by the VTB and Rostelecom consortium may enter it.

The Ministry of Communications sent for approval to the departments a revised draft resolution on the experiment to create the Gostech digital platform, its discussion will take place on June 29 at a meeting chaired by Deputy Communications Minister Andrei Chernenko, a source familiar with the document told Kommersant.

According to him, the participation in the new version of the project does not spell out the participation of Sberbank and does not specify who will become the platform supplier.

The Ministry of Communications and the Bank declined to comment.

As Kommersant reported on April 18, Sberbank, in fact, was one of the initiators of the creation of Gostekh. VTB, Rostelecom and Russian Post are also interested in participating in the creation of the platform, offering their services in a joint letter to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin (see Kommersant on June 9). In the previous version of the draft resolution, it was Sberbank that was indicated among the participants in the experiment (see Kommersant, June 15). It is assumed that the platform will provide services for the rental of state property and cadastral registration of real estate, as well as a system for obtaining a digital compulsory medical insurance policy.

Sberbank has a competitive advantage – for example, it has already created its own platform, which will quickly deploy Gostekh services, and Sber ID is already integrated into many services, but specifying the bank as the sole operator creates a non-competitive situation and can lead to even greater influence , says Maxim Nalyutin, head of the Deloitte Financial Services Group.

The most likely competitor to Sberbank, in his opinion, is a partnership between VTB and Rostelecom, which are already working on creating a big data platform. Rostelecom, in addition, has been working on the development of the Gosoblako platform (State Unified Cloud Platform) for several years, and VTB has a large IT integrator Technoserv in its portfolio, the resources and experience of which will allow quickly realizing the complex task, Mr. Nalyutin points out . VTB declined to comment; Rostelecom and Russian Post did not respond to requests.

The Ministry of Communications said earlier that using the Sberbank platform would not require expenditures from the state budget.

If the development will be implemented at the expense of the investor, then he will probably get the opportunity to earn money on operating the system, which as a result can become a profitable commercial project, Maxim Nalyutin believes. It can be direct commissions or indirect income due to more integrated work with the user both within the framework of Gostekh and within the perimeter of the services of the investor himself, he explains.

I would like to hope that the change in the project was the result of not only the competition of state corporations for revenues, but also an understanding of the complexity of developing the platform and the requirements of its openness and widespread adaptation on the market, said Andrei Sholokhov, deputy director of Softline for working with national projects. Choosing a platform from those available on the commercial market is a good solution, but now there are no Russian vendors who can offer a truly competitive application development platform, he is sure that using several existing internal developments of Russian state corporations carries significant risks.

According to Mr. Sholokhov, the initially open platform with a large number of third-party developers, which could actively develop due to a large ecosystem of applications and a wide labor market for developers, would become more commercially correct.

Bonya received the minimum wage criticized by her

TV presenter and former participant of the show “House-2” Victoria Bonya informed her Instagram subscribers about receiving state aid in the amount of minimum wage.

The amount came to the presenter’s account on June 26. Earlier, Bonya criticized the allocation of assistance to needy Russians, she said that this money is distributed to “all kinds of alcoholics and beggars.” But she immediately explained why she herself received it. According to the representative of show business, her accountant filed a statement without her knowledge, and she also announced the arrival of funds to the account.

Bonya indicated that the amount would not cover the losses that she incurred during the downtime.

After that, the TV presenter announced that she planned to transfer these funds to some poor family.

“From myself and from my jeans brand, I am ready to transfer two more of these amounts to large families that today are in dire need of money,” the Instagram post said.

Earlier, the host commented on her social network the broken nose of TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak.

What will change from July 1: pensions, utilities, payments for children

Housing and utilities rates will rise

Housing and communal services will rise in price from July 1 by 2.4-6.5% depending on the region. Tariffs will grow most strongly in the North Caucasus: in Chechnya – by 6.5%, in Kabardino-Balkaria – by 5.4%, in Dagestan – by 5.2%.

The minimum increase threshold is planned in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug – by 2.4%. However, on average, tariff growth in all regions will be 4% and will not exceed inflation. Legislative authorities considered the idea of ​​“freezing” communal prices due to the deterioration of the material situation of Russians during the pandemic. However, the government rejected the initiative, taking the side of resource companies that, without tariff indexation, would face underfunding.

Electricity meters will be replaced for free

There is good news from utilities. From July 1, installation, repair, maintenance and replacement of electricity meters will be carried out at the expense of energy companies. Moreover, the obligation will be valid for guaranteeing suppliers in apartment buildings, and for network companies in the case of the private sector, cottages and legal entities. As explained in the Ministry of Energy, residents will only have to monitor the safety of meters.

Self-employed tax will be introduced everywhere

In a recent appeal to citizens, President Vladimir Putin proposed extending the tax regime for the self-employed throughout the country. Since 2018, he acted in test mode, first in 4 regions, and then in 23 constituent entities of the Russian Federation. Moreover, the regions will be able to decide for themselves whether to join the project or not. Another innovation – as self-employed it will be possible to register from 16 years old, and not from 18 as before.

Freelancers and entrepreneurs who are not employed by the employer and do not have the status of individual entrepreneur or legal entity can become self-employed. With the help of the My Tax mobile application, they can legalize their income and pay 4% tax (for a client – an individual) and 6% (if a client is a legal entity or individual entrepreneur) instead of the usual personal income tax of 13%. According to the Ministry of Finance, more than 741 thousand taxpayers have become self-employed.

Repeated payout for children

In July, families with children will receive one more lump sum payment of 10 thousand rubles for each child. These funds will be additionally provided for a monthly payment of 5 thousand rubles for children under 3 years old and will be automatically charged by the June lump sum payment for children from 3 to 16 years old. A new application for financial assistance is not necessary: ​​money will be paid based on the data already available to the FIU. According to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, it is planned to allocate more than 270 billion rubles for these purposes.

Pensions of elderly guardians will increase

The indexation of insurance pensions will be renewed for foster parents and retirees and guardians of minor children. Previously, they were equated with working pensioners due to the fact that they are engaged in raising children under the contract and receive remuneration for this. At the same time, the amount of remuneration was small: 4-5 thousand rubles. Now they will be annually indexed the size of the insurance pension and a fixed payment to it. Recalculation of pensions will take place without a request: no need to apply to the FIU. According to government estimates, the measure will cover 45.8 thousand adoptive parents-pensioners.

The transfer of pension payments to MIR cards will end

By July 1, banks must complete the transfer of pensioners to the cards of the MIR payment system. However, until October 1, the Central Bank allowed not to punish banks if they continue to transfer pensions to cards of other payment systems. Thus, Visa and MasterCard cardholders will be able to use them for another three months.

Microcredit tighten again

Starting July 1, new rules are introduced for the microcredit market. For microcredit companies with simplified regulation, the minimum amount of equity is set at 1 million rubles. Microcredit companies are also required to disclose information on the structure and composition of their shareholders.

Shoes, cigarettes and medicines are marked

The list of goods subject to mandatory digital marking is expanding. Information on all drugs imported into the country will have to be entered into the drug movement monitoring system. At the same time, the sale of unlabeled drugs that went on sale before July 1 will be allowed until the expiration date.

Starting July 1, the circulation of unlabelled tobacco products in the country should be completely stopped. Becomes mandatory and marking shoes. Products without special codes cannot be sold after July 1. Buyers will be able to check the legality of the product in the “Honest Sign” application: all information about the movement of a pair of shoes from the manufacturer to the buyer will be displayed there. Shoes already delivered to stores can be marked by September 1.

Tourists will be offered domestic holidays

Since July 1, the holiday season opens almost in full mode. Hotels and resorts across the country are starting to operate, restrictions on interregional trips are being removed, beaches, parks and embankments are opening. For a month now, the sanatoriums of the Krasnodar Territory have been working with a medical license, now all hotels, camp sites and children’s camps will officially join them. At the same time, Rospotrebnadzor obliged the resorts to observe security measures, including social distance. Regions have also introduced their own rules. Somewhere the maximum occupancy rate of hotels is being introduced, in some regions there are restrictions on entry. Before planning a trip, it is worth examining information about the limitations and epidemiological situation of the region.

From July 15, international air traffic partially resumes. Borders will be opened with the countries of the EAEU and the CIS. Europe and foreign countries are still closed to Russians.

You don’t have to prove disability

From July 1, it is not required to provide a disability certificate to receive payments and public services. The necessary information will be requested by the authorized bodies in the framework of electronic interaction between departments. Previously, because of bureaucratic delays, disability payments were often delayed: they had to collect documents on their own, write a statement to the FIU, and wait for confirmation of examinations. Now applying for the benefits of people with disabilities will be simplified.

Another innovation awaits disabled car owners. From July 1, an identification mark with a picture of a stroller is no longer required. Information about a car driven or transporting a disabled person must be placed in the federal registry, and signs will not be issued. To obtain the right to free parking, people with disabilities or their legal representatives must submit an application to the PRF to register the vehicle. This can also be done at the MFC or at the State Services portal. For disabled people, there should be at least 10% of privileged places in public parking lots.

Declarations of civil servants will be converted into electronic form

Civil servants will fill out income statements only using the special software “Help BC”. This service is available on the official website of the President of Russia. Such certificates are required to fill out about 2 million people, including deputies and employees of state funds. “Help BC” will automatically check the correctness of filling out the document, will store data and update them.

Workers will be asked to choose a workbook format

The government has postponed the period for notifying an employee about electronic work books. Employers had until July 1 to collect employee information about which format of the workbook remains for them – electronic or paper. The term was extended until October 31.

Universities introduce mandatory practice

Practical training of students will become an indispensable part of training for all specialties in universities, colleges and schools. Such a norm existed in the Soviet educational system, and in modern Russia there are only four areas left: aviation and rail transport, medicine and pharmaceuticals.

The geographical indication will be fixed by law

Starting July 27, a new object of intellectual property appears in Russia – a geographical indication. The norm will concern manufacturers of products, wine, and other goods. For regional manufacturers, the procedure for registering goods with a reference to a geographical object is simplified. For example, earlier the “Adygea cheese” was to be made exclusively from Adyghe milk and ripen in special baskets of plum twigs. At the same time, 80% of Adyghe cheese was produced outside Adygea. Now cheese can officially be called Adyghe if at least one of the stages of its production was in the locality of the same name.

Expert Comments

Alexey Krichevsky, expert at the Academy of Finance and Investment Management: “One of the most interesting and positive innovations of July is the spread of the self-employed regime throughout the country. This will gradually lead people working without registration and in private, out of the shadows. After the project is distributed throughout the country, the number of self-employed will increase by 1.5-2 times already this year, and tax deductions may well exceed 3 billion rubles. The state will ensure that companies do not transfer employees to self-employment for the sake of favorable tax conditions. For this, a transitional period of six months is introduced when the self-employed does not have the right to conclude a contract with the company from which he quit.

The introduction of electronic workbooks will allow you to no longer worry about the experience and the sudden loss of a workbook – all data will be stored on the Internet.

Regarding the indexation of housing and communal services tariffs, against the background of a total decline in household incomes, it was more logical to either cancel it completely or to postpone the period of raising the cost of housing and communal services for the next few years, increasing indexation by 1-1.5% during the “compensation” period. ”

Petr Pushkarev, TeleTrade chief analyst: “Definitely good news will be the repeated payment in July of 10 thousand rubles for each child under 16 years of age. Any social payments can stir up almost “dead” consumer demand. This means that this money will help business as well.

The long-awaited topic is the opening of domestic tourism with free trips between regions. The main thing is that vacationers should not be tortured with certificates and checks. It’s not a fact that citizens will go on a massive trip: it’s worth going to a hotel, where one of the guests will find a virus, all the tourists there will be sent to self-isolation. In the conditions of restrictions, the “wild” rest with renting apartments and private houses will be in demand rather.

Many Russians were waiting for a chance to become legally self-employed. It is good that the option will be available to the most active youth from 16 years old. It is perhaps bad that the decision to introduce a self-employed regime was left at the mercy of the regions, which could be delayed with changes in regional legislation. They still need to convince citizens to legalize and convince that in a few years the authorities will not turn off the benefits and will not “cut” the tax press in full.

The normal procedure for indexing pensions to pensioners-guardians of children will be restored: equating them with working pensioners was clearly a misunderstanding. The good thing is that with Mir cards, pensioners were allowed not to follow new ones during the epidemic, and were allowed to use the old ones until the fall. ”

Civil servants will fill out income statements only using the special software “Help BC”. This service is available on the official website of the President of Russia. Such certificates are required to fill out about 2 million people, including deputies and employees of state funds. “Help BC” will automatically check the correctness of filling out the document, will store data and update them.

Workers will be asked to choose a workbook format

The government has postponed the period for notifying an employee about electronic work books. Employers had until July 1 to collect employee information about which format of the workbook remains for them – electronic or paper. The term was extended until October 31.

Universities introduce mandatory practice

Practical training of students will become an indispensable part of training for all specialties in universities, colleges and schools. Such a norm existed in the Soviet educational system, and in modern Russia there are only four areas left: aviation and rail transport, medicine and pharmaceuticals.

The geographical indication will be fixed by law

Starting July 27, a new object of intellectual property appears in Russia – a geographical indication. The norm will concern manufacturers of products, wine, and other goods. For regional manufacturers, the procedure for registering goods with a reference to a geographical object is simplified. For example, earlier the “Adygea cheese” was to be made exclusively from Adyghe milk and ripen in special baskets of plum twigs. At the same time, 80% of Adyghe cheese was produced outside Adygea. Now cheese can officially be called Adyghe if at least one of the stages of its production was in the locality of the same name.

Expert Comments

Alexey Krichevsky, expert at the Academy of Finance and Investment Management: “One of the most interesting and positive innovations of July is the spread of the self-employed regime throughout the country. This will gradually lead people working without registration and in private, out of the shadows. After the project is distributed throughout the country, the number of self-employed will increase by 1.5-2 times already this year, and tax deductions may well exceed 3 billion rubles. The state will ensure that companies do not transfer employees to self-employment for the sake of favorable tax conditions. For this, a transitional period of six months is introduced when the self-employed does not have the right to conclude a contract with the company from which he quit.

The introduction of electronic workbooks will allow you to no longer worry about the experience and the sudden loss of a workbook – all data will be stored on the Internet.

Regarding the indexation of housing and communal services tariffs, against the background of a total decline in household incomes, it was more logical to either cancel it completely or to postpone the period of raising the cost of housing and communal services for the next few years, increasing indexation by 1-1.5% during the “compensation” period. ”

Petr Pushkarev, TeleTrade chief analyst: “Definitely good news will be the repeated payment in July of 10 thousand rubles for each child under 16 years of age. Any social payments can stir up almost “dead” consumer demand. This means that this money will help business as well.

The long-awaited topic is the opening of domestic tourism with free trips between regions. The main thing is that vacationers should not be tortured with certificates and checks. It’s not a fact that citizens will go on a massive trip: it’s worth going to a hotel, where one of the guests will find a virus, all the tourists there will be sent to self-isolation. In the conditions of restrictions, the “wild” rest with renting apartments and private houses will be in demand rather.

Many Russians were waiting for a chance to become legally self-employed. It is good that the option will be available to the most active youth from 16 years old. It is perhaps bad that the decision to introduce a self-employed regime was left at the mercy of the regions, which could be delayed with changes in regional legislation. They still need to convince citizens to legalize and convince that in a few years the authorities will not turn off the benefits and will not “cut” the tax press in full.

The normal procedure for indexing pensions to pensioners-guardians of children will be restored: equating them with working pensioners was clearly a misunderstanding. The good thing is that with Mir cards, pensioners were allowed not to follow new ones during the epidemic, and were allowed to use the old ones until the fall. ”

The opening of the economy provoked an increase in the number of diseases COVID-19

Last week, Apple closed seven stores in Houston, Texas – just a few days after the stores closed in four more states. Texas and Florida, which introduced the quarantine regime among the last in the United States and one of the first to leave it, are becoming the new focus of the epidemic. They, as well as California and Arizona account for almost half of new infections in the United States.

The number of people infected has been decreasing since April 24 (36,291 cases), but since mid-June it has been growing rapidly, reaching a new record on Friday – 45,255, according to Johns Hopkins University. Therefore, in Texas, the authorities closed all the bars (and the mayor of Houston issued a decree on isolation again), in Florida – they restricted their work, and the opening of hairdressers and street verandas scheduled for Monday was postponed in San Francisco. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has postponed the opening of shopping centers, cinemas and fitness clubs, scheduled for Friday in several counties. New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have quarantined visitors from several states, including Florida, Texas, and Arizona.

Pandemic has become a litmus test for the Russian elite

He became a deputy, for decades he was in various senior positions. True, he did not win special laurels, but still in the leading clip, he continues to pull the excessive burden of the “servant of the people.” From his spiritual bond, only a round and well-fed … turnip remained.

In this story there is no fiction, allegory or libel on the bright image of the national guardian. On the contrary, I do not call him by name just because I want to spare the nerves of the simple-minded people who at one time gave sympathy to a visiting political guest performer. Our deputies, candidates, senators, officials only out of necessity and for a short time descend to the ground, “showing concern” for a simple person. Then, in a private plane, fly away to your villas and yachts, where in the quiet of the splashing sea it is easier to relieve the stress of meeting an alien “remote place” for them, to erase unpleasant images of general neglect and poverty from memory.

The social gap between the government and the people has always existed among us: that under Ivan the Terrible, that under Nicholas II, that under Stalin and further on the list. We admit honestly that the tsar, neither the emperors, nor the Bolshevik or democratic leaders, the well-being of the common man was a priority. The state and its interests are everything, but man is almost nothing! However, today’s stratification in the country, the gigantic wealth of some and the hopeless poverty of others, even against such a historical background, look glaring.

The so-called Russian elite does not even know how things are outside the two capitals. How millions of citizens of small towns and villages survive – the most humble part of the country, the inhabitants of that very province, the outback, about which the elites allegedly bake.

In fact, they are all “terribly far from the people,” as Lenin noted, alluding to the fact that the Bolsheviks will be much closer when they come to power. For they themselves come from the thick of the people.

But Vladimir Ilyich, having become the master of the Kremlin, did not change historical traditions, having settled together with his wife in an 11-room apartment in the Senate Palace, with two elevators and a summer terrace for relaxing and walking.

In a word, it doesn’t matter which century is in the yard – everything happens according to one scenario. New elites break into power under the slogans of protecting the interests of the people, and then isolate themselves from the common man and his worries in order to focus on solving more “ambitious” tasks. So they come off gradually from reality, cease to understand the life of ordinary citizens.

And if someone says that this happens to high-ranking officials around the world, then I will not agree. Not so long ago, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived at a regular store in the immigrant area of ​​London at the wheel … of a bicycle. Recognizing him, people came up to say hello by the hand and take a selfie. Having finished communication, Johnson unhooked the lock from the frame, got on his bicycle and drove off into the bourgeois Piccadilly.

I cannot imagine Johnson’s Russian colleague in the same role – at least the present, at least any of the past – personally I can’t, at least crack! Although one of them would take such a walk in the midst of a street crowd, renting a bike and going for bread to the bench, he probably could have learned a lot of new and interesting information about people’s lives, first hand. You see, this knowledge would help in the preparation of some important government decisions …

Ideologies or systems are changing, and the nature of power is never! And most of today’s problems are a consequence of that very isolation and split. Hence the inadequate response of the authorities to many internal events, challenges and aspirations.

Maybe this would have continued, if not for the sudden pandemic, which had fallen like snow on his head, exposing all the drama and depth of Russian problems.

To be fair, the government promptly took the necessary and important measures to protect the population. In a short period of time, hospitals and clinics were redesigned into coronavirus control centers, provided with protective equipment, thanks to which massive losses were avoided. And the appearance of Vladimir Putin in Kommunarka, communication with specialists of the medical center and the support of doctors became almost a balm for the soul – which means that not everything is so bad!

However, millions of ordinary citizens, being isolated, alone with their fear, fears, phobias, experienced total stress, which they are unlikely to quickly and without consequences get rid of. New and unfamiliar words appeared: saturation, virulence, alveolus, on which the lives of their loved ones now depend. In a literal sense. The pandemic caused tectonic shifts and psychological trauma in people’s minds. It seems that such confusion and absolute misunderstanding of what to do, how to be saved, people have never had, perhaps even during the Great Patriotic War, where the enemy was terrible, but understandable and visible. It was especially hard for the elderly contingent, which was initially identified as a hopeless “risk group”.

Deputies, ministers, heads of regions, territories frankly skated about the excitement of people. They had nothing to say or simply did not consider it necessary – this is not an election campaign! Especially to rush off somewhere, spend money and risk your health. It is much safer to jump out to the provinces on a Gelendvagen for a couple of days, throwing a sweatshirt with earflaps and pickaxes in the trunk to seduce the electorate.

We did not see the proper support of the business community. Not a single oligarch was seen in volunteer actions or financial support for hospitals. None of them ran to withdraw money from accounts to help those in need.

Each time we are convinced that we should not wait for male, and simply humane, human actions from our Forbes regulars. Although they have been scooping billions of dollars for decades in those very deceived remote places, polluting nature for hundreds of kilometers, which is why the population is gradually dying out.

We did not hear the voices of representatives of official medicine, whose words would help people calm down. As a result, psychosis reached such heights that even doctors refused to replace whole teams. And you can understand them, because few people want to risk the health and lives of loved ones and relatives for a penny.

The pandemic and all the events associated with it caused only discontent and distrust of the authorities. When half a century ago, Moscow artist Alexei Kokorekin, who returned from India, fell ill with smallpox, the entire population of Moscow (6 million people) was completely vaccinated within 19 days. And no one blundered why and for what they are vaccinated! Because they were one hundred percent sure – everything is done for their health and good.

The outbreak was localized, only three people died. So Soviet medicine coped with typhoid, plague, tuberculosis, smallpox, polio and other epidemics using its own vaccines.

Today, one hint of the need for vaccines causes the majority of anxiety and protest. Perhaps fears are exaggerated and have no soil. But people no longer believe anyone. Too often they have been deceived and continue to deceive.

They do not know how to work differently. Maybe they would like to, but they don’t know how!
