In the Slavyanka microdistrict of the Pushkin district of St. Petersburg, the Green Park cultural and leisure center worth 2 billion rubles was commissioned. According to the press service of PSK Group of Companies (project investor), the area of ​​the object was 23.9 thousand square meters. m. Experts interviewed by RBC Petersburg say that, given the shortage of places for leisure in the microdistrict, Green Park may well become a “local” center of attraction, but the time for its commissioning is difficult, given the approach of the second wave of COVID-19.

Filling the areas

The two-storey leisure center is located in the central part of Slavyanka. A parking lot for 650 cars is envisaged on the territory; in the future, a park will be set up nearby. According to the investor, 40% of the commercial space of the complex will be allocated for leisure, social and sports needs. In particular, the first fitness club in Slavyanka with a swimming pool, Fitness House, will appear here. The first large supermarket in the microdistrict, clothing stores, grocery stores, and children’s stores will also open there. At the same time, there will be no traditional food court in the center (instead, there will be separate restaurants and coffee shops).

The official opening of Green Park is scheduled for December 1st. “At the time of commissioning, 80% of the area was commissioned in Green Park. We have every reason to believe that at the time of the opening of the complex there will be 100% filling, which will be a record for such projects, “says Stanislav Stupnikov, head of the retail real estate department of the Best Group of Companies (exclusive broker for the project).

According to the expert, the construction of this facility provided an opportunity to start work in Slavyanka for large federal networks. Prior to that, there were no necessary areas in the microdistrict. Stupnikov recalls that 180 thousand people live in the coverage area of ​​the leisure center. In his opinion, the audience of Green Park is not only residents of Slavyanka, but also of adjacent territories, such as Pushkin and Kolpino.

Lack of places for leisure

Andrei Kosarev, head of Colliers International in St. Petersburg, believes that since the new facility in Slavyanka has no competition, it may well become a center of attraction for residents of its microdistrict. According to the expert, the Pushkinsky district is the least provided with retail space in St. Petersburg (47 sq. M per thousand inhabitants). For comparison, in the Petrodvortsovy district, which is next, the provision is 97 sq. m per thousand inhabitants, and in Vasileostrovsky – 112 sq. m per thousand inhabitants.

Harassment in the slaughterhouse: A Romanian contract worker tells of exploitation in the meat industry, the terror of the foremen and the fear of his colleagues. He still likes his job.

JI get up every night at half past eleven. I go to work at one, stand at the assembly line at two, then my shift begins. Before the pandemic there was less to do, sometimes I only worked six, seven or eight hours, six days a week, Monday to Saturday. Since entire slaughterhouses have been closed, we have been working regularly for nine and a half hours. Recently we have even been forced to work on Sundays. This means that you have almost no time with the family at all.

This week the managing directors of the general contractor came down to us in production and introduced new regulations. A distance of one and a half meters must now be maintained between the employees on the line. But until a few days ago we worked very closely together. In addition, the belt no longer runs as fast as usual. Usually we have to work at a speed that costs a lot of power. Now you can work very loosely and slowly and you don’t have the stress that you cannot do it because the tape is just too fast.

Some employees of the Talnakh enrichment plant (PF, part of Norilsk Nickel) have been suspended from work, the Norilsk Nickel said in a statement to RBC. “Responsible persons of the Pacific Fleet are suspended from the performance of their duties,” the company said.

Norilsk Nickel also said that Pacific Fleet officers committed “a flagrant violation of the rules for operating the tailings of the factory.”

The dumping occurred earlier on Sunday. According to Norilsk Nickel, the leadership of the Pacific Fleet decided to pump clarified industrial water into the adjacent territory in order to prevent possible emergency situations associated with an increase in the water level in the settling pond of the tailing dump.

Earlier, Rosprirodnadzor reported that the water level in the pond rose sharply after conducting hydraulic tests of the hot water pipeline and rainfall.

In the United States called the purchase of S-400 the main irritant in relations with Turkey :: Politics :: RBC

Turkey’s acquisition of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems is the main irritant in relations between Ankara and Washington. This was stated by US Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey, writes Free News.

“The S-400 is a huge problem. This is an extremely complex issue, as it concerns the largest investment in defense of the United States and its allies since World War II – the F-35 fighter. Turkey’s actions are undermining the potential of this aircraft, ”said Jeffrey during a videoconference at the Hudson Institute.

Ankara announced delayed deployment of S-400 due to coronavirus

According to him, both sides are at an impasse on this issue. “Otherwise, we get along quite well with Turkey on most issues, including Libya, NATO, the Black Sea region, Syria and Iraq,” the diplomat added.

Turkey bought S-400 systems from Russia in the fall of 2019. The cost of delivering an air defense system amounted to $ 2.5 billion. The deal aroused US discontent: Washington threatened Ankara with sanctions if it did not return or destroy Russian air defense systems.

Great car or overpriced bucket? What “jambs” appeared during 2 years of using LADA Vesta SW Cross

The owners shared their opinion about the LADA Vesta SW Cross after 2 years of operation.

First owner uses LADA Vesta SW Cross with 1.6 L engine and manual transmission in the “Lux” configuration. Owns a car for almost 2 years, mileage is 57 thousand km. Over the life of the car enthusiast pleased with the car and serious damage did not happen. There were creaking bushings of stabilizers. The car went through 7 maintenance, oil changed there, as it was operated in urban conditions, the driving style is aggressive. “Antikor” and “cannon fat” processed all joints. At the points of abutment of the plastic body kit, cracks are still visible and moisture can get there. The paintwork is excellent. In LADA Vesta, I changed the headlights, lanterns and repeaters on the mirrors in one style, since there was not enough light from the headlights at night. Regarding taxiing, there were no problems, at a low speed, the shock absorber rattles on small irregularities, and there is no such problem at high speed. The stabilizer bushings also creaked, the amateur found a simple and cheap solution – take the bushings from Toyota

The owner is annoyed that the engine temperature sensor is damped, that is, it actually shows 90 degrees from 5 5 to 105. When using a car for 2-3 months at 95 degrees, you can “burn” the motor. The West disease is that the upper engine mount is soft. On the 56 thousand run, the corrugation broke, it lived for so long, as the lower pillow of the “engine” was strengthened, which extended the life of the corrugation and the upper pillow. From the suspension to the thousands to 100, two silent blocks in the levers “lie down”. Wheels on cars are native, but there are no caps, as they often fly away.

Second owner uses LADA Vesta SW Cross already 70,000 km. The car is excellent in terms of price and quality, long-distance trips are comfortable. The power window buttons moved forward and the first 5-10 thousand motorists lowered the rear window instead of the front. There is no anti-gravel film on the car, many chips appeared throughout the car, but this is not too noticeable, since the places of the chips did not rust. The shelf in the trunk flew apart, the car was heavily loaded and put paper towels on the shelf and closed, and it broke.

“I would like to scold, but nothing,” said the second owner of the LADA Vesta SW Cross.
