In July of this year, Russians stopped putting away credit cards “in reserve”. Last month, the share of those who started using a credit card immediately after receiving it reached an all-time high. About it writes Kommersant with reference to the Bureau of Credit Histories (BCI) Equifax.

The bureau analyzed how actively citizens use credit card limits, and found that by the end of July, the level of utilization of the limit (making a purchase or receiving funds from an ATM) within the first month after receiving a credit card increased by 14 percentage points, to 68 %. “This is a record value for the entire period of calculation of the indicator since August 2015,” the BCI noted.

Equifax reported that the increase in the utilization of the limit in July was noted across the entire range of amounts: from 10 thousand to more than 100 thousand rubles. This means that both borrowers with low income, for whom, as a rule, banks set minimum limits on transactions, and more wealthy customers, have become more active in using credit cards.

The general director of the bureau, Oleg Lagutkin, said that the increase in the level of utilization is a consequence of any marketing activity of lenders or a seasonal factor, when the level of card transactions grows. “We can assume that in July 2020, both factors were realized,” he said.

If the ubiquitous distribution of bank cards with chips practically ruled out skimming, making non-cash payments more secure, then paying for purchases via the Internet is still dangerous: phishing is still widespread on the Internet. About this agency “Prime” reported Alexey Sizov, head of the anti-fraud department of the Center for Applied Security Systems of Jet Infosystems.

According to him, scammers often steal money from bank accounts using fake websites. “Such payment sites are almost always similar to the original ones, and the speed at which new services appear on the Internet makes determining the legitimacy of a resource an increasingly difficult task,” Sizov notes.

In order not to fall for the bait, the expert recommends opening a separate account, which you will use for online purchases. And keep small amounts of money on it. You should also watch out for large purchases in unverified places and on sites with a bad reputation. In addition, you cannot give personal data to anyone, even if they call from a bank or store.

If the purchase was made with a bank card on a dubious website, you can dispute the operation through the bank. “They will tell you how to file a claim and what to do if there is a risk of compromising your card data,” added the head of the Department of Applied Security Systems Center of Jet Infosystems.

In the Netherlands, refuted data on the arrival of radiation from Europe to Europe :: Society :: RBC

The National Institute of Public Health and the Environment stated that it is impossible to talk about Russia as a source of radiation. The organization only claims that the substances came from western Russia

Building of the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)


The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands has denied media reports claiming that Russia has become a source of increased background radiation in Northern Europe. This was announced by the institute on its website.

The RIVM commented on its previous post, in which it claims that radionuclides came to Europe from western Russia. A Sunday report said that perhaps due to an incorrect translation (the message was posted in Dutch), some media mistakenly wrote that the radioactive substances came from Russia. “<...> it is not possible at this stage to determine a specific source country [веществ]”, – says the message of the RIVM.

In the first half of June, sensors from Norway, Finland and Sweden recorded an increase in the level of radionuclides in their territory. In particular, iodine-131 was found in Norway, and cesium-134, cesium-137, cobalt-60 and ruthenium-103 were found in Finland and Sweden. According to RIVM, the amount of substances was very low and did not harm human health and the environment. At the same time, the institute noted that the recorded radionuclides were the result of human activity.

Members of the Federation Council responded to the words of the former Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin about the lack of the right for Russia to celebrate Victory Day over Nazism. This Ukrainian politician said earlier in an interview with Espresso-TV.

“Klimkin’s parents live in Russia in the Penza region, I don’t know if they read what he says. In the Great Patriotic War, the multinational Soviet people won – Russians, Belarusians, Georgians, Ukrainians, Moldavians, Kazakhs, Uzbeks and even the Baltic peoples, where there are national heroes who defended general freedom and independence. In conditions when the war and reconstruction events took place, the national republics received a lot at the expense of Russia. Ukraine had enormous preferences due to territories and support. We considered this victory to be common, ”said Franz Klintsevich, a member of the Federation Council in an interview with RBC.

According to him, such figures as Klimkin, “not remembering their kinship and history”, unleashed a war in Ukraine. “When citizens who disagreed with fascism and nationalism began to protect their families, Russia began to morally, politically, financially help people living in southeastern Ukraine. They believe that we are participating in this war because we are not giving the opportunity, by supporting the Russian people, to commit genocide over our own people, ”the senator said. Klintsevich added that it is necessary to institute criminal proceedings against Klimkin in connection with many statements “that speak of inciting national hatred and encouraging terrorists.”

Klimkin said Russia has no right to celebrate Victory Day

As stated in a conversation with RBC, a senator from the Republic of Crimea, a member of the Federation Council committee on international affairs, Sergei Tsekov, Russia, above all others, has the right to be the heir to the Victory.
