On Friday, August 14, officers of the FSB and the Investigative Committee detained the Prosecutor of the Industrial District, Sergei Murai. He is accused of accepting bribes on an especially large scale, as well as mediating large-scale bribery.

According to the investigation, in 2016, Sergei Murai threatened the accused in a criminal case with the appointment of a more serious article in the form of real imprisonment, as well as with the prosecution of his family members. For 2 million rubles, the prosecutor promised not to increase the punishment.

– The accused received a bribe from a citizen in the amount of at least 2 million rubles, of which 1 million rubles – personally in the form of money, and another 1 million rubles – through intermediaries in the form of other property, – reported the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Perm Territory.

In addition, from June to August 2017, Murai helped to reach an agreement between the entrepreneur-bribe-giver and officials of the Federal Bailiff Service of Russia in the Perm Territory on receiving and giving a bribe for cashing money from the settlement accounts of specific legal entities in a total amount of more than 40 million rubles through the deposit account of the interdistrict Department of the UFSSP, and also directly transferred a bribe in the amount of 600 thousand rubles from a citizen-bribe-giver to officials of the UFSSP of Russia in the Perm Territory.

– Also from June 2017 to March 2018, he committed a similar crime. At the request of the investigator, the court in relation to the former employee of the prosecutor’s office chose a preventive measure in the form of detention, he was charged. All the circumstances of the incident are being established, the collection and consolidation of the evidence base, – concluded the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee for the Perm Territory.

Let us remind you that Sergey Murai received the position of Prosecutor of the Industrial District in 2013. At various times he worked as an investigator, assistant, deputy prosecutor, prosecutor of the Ilyinsky district of the Perm region and the prosecutor of the Motovilikha district of Perm.


very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.


– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.


– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

The Russians began to return currency to the banks :: Finance :: RBC

The same opinion analyst at BKF Bank Maxim Osadchy. According to him, in previous months, the citizens formed a “canopy” of cash, which is now converted into account. The main contribution to the growth of deposits in foreign currency in may has made Sberbank, which raised $381 million, says Osadchy. He does not exclude that some players still recorded the outflow of foreign currency savings. The majority of Russian banks have not published their balances on 1 June.

“It is possible that some customers bought the currency. This is supported by the fact that the rouble share of deposits of physical persons has decreased,” — said the Director of analytical group Fitch of financial organizations Anton Lopatin. According to him, citizens also have no reason to open new deposits in foreign currency due to low interest rates. These two factors confirm the version flow of ruble savings in foreign exchange, says the interlocutor of RBC.

Sberbank lowered interest rates on deposits in US dollars

Ruble deposits in may decreased slightly: their volume decreased by 0.4%, or 92,14 billion rubles, follows from the data of the Central Bank. As noted by the regulator, the outflow in may was associated with long holidays and lower incomes. In June, the situation has stabilized: retail customers accounts increased by 0.5%, growing balances in rubles and in foreign currency.

See what the banks themselves

  • VTB in may recorded a growth of foreign currency deposits by 17%, said the representative. In ruble terms the increase amounted to 28 billion rubles. More than 25% of new deposits in foreign currency were opened with the newly received Bank funds.
  • May the flow of money in foreign currency deposits and current accounts in Sovcombank considered insignificant. “About the trend or change it to speak while early”, — says the Chairman of the Bank Alexei Panferov.
  • Tinkoff Bank has observed the growth of foreign currency deposits in may and in April, says the representative of group “Tinkoff”. “This is not a flow of funds from one account to another — in April and may we capture the increase in the total balance of attracted funds of physical persons”, — he said.
  • The amount of funds in foreign currency deposits remained stable and foreign exchange savings in current accounts in may have ceased to decline, said the Director of the Department of design and savings products PSB Natalia Voloshin. “On the eve of the summer season, the population returned to the currency that is in checking accounts, not to keep their savings at home,” she said.

  • Bank “Zenith” has not fixed the flow of funds on foreign currency deposits and demand accounts, said his spokesman.
  • Raiffeisenbank declined to comment. Other major banks did not respond to a request RBC.

What happens to the profitability of deposits

On customer behavior could be impacted by the falling yield on ruble deposits, noted a senior analyst at Moody’s Semyon Isakov. “The renewed decline in interest rates on ruble deposits, the sharp appreciation of the ruble against the background of still low oil prices and the announced tax on deposits — all of this dramatically reduced the relative attractiveness of ruble savings. Given the new balance real rate of return in rubles and potential risks, the increased part of investors prefer foreign currency,” he explained.

By June the average maximum rate on ruble deposits in the largest banks renewed its historical minimum, having fallen to 5.01% per annum. Central Bank has not yet disclosed information on the profitability of foreign currency deposits in may. According to the latest data, the average weighted rate for deposits in dollars in April, was 0.63% for deposits up to one year, including demand, and 0.85% on deposits from year to year. The yield on dollar deposits fell from the beginning of last year. The weighted average rate on “long” deposits in Euro have risen sharply in January 2020, to 0.72%, and in April fell to 0.24% per annum. The yield of deposits in euros before the year in April, on the contrary, returned to growth — the weighted average rate rose to 0.08 percent, but still remains at a very low level.

Banks began to stop accepting deposits in euros last summer. Market participants explained that in the conditions of negative rates in the Eurozone are savings products become unprofitable.

In March 2020, some banks have excluded from their rulers deposits in dollars due to the sharp decline rate of FRS of USA. But in may some of our players have improved on savings products in foreign currency, according to reports in the portal

Mitigation of sanitary measures and government support will increase savings activity of the population in June, predicts VTB. In Tinkoff Bank believe that talking about a trend growth of currency savings early. “Markets are still waiting the development of the situation with the virus and the pandemic”, — said the representative of the group.

“The total volume of foreign currency deposits still substantially below the level of the beginning of the year, and rapid recovery of this figure is to be expected,” said Proklov from the Agency of the NKR.

As noted by the Bank of Russia, outflow of people in may was “typical of this month.” “More spending because of the holidays, and lower incomes due to less number of working days, particularly people on piecework,” — explained in the press service of the regulator.

The star of the film “Big Change” barely making ends meet

Valentine Titov viewers fell in love with the cult films Shield and Sword and Big Break. Despite fame, the 78-year-old actress lives very modestly. Not to say poor.

Valentina Titova experienced in her life the betrayal of her colleagues, separation from her daughter, and difficult financial situation. However, the star of the Soviet films does not lose heart on self-isolation: “I live in the old way, I put in order the apartment, myself and I comply with these standards.” Such little things make her happy.

Valentina Antipovna does not hide – her no financial airbag. “My pension is 16 thousand rubles a month due to the lack of ranks … They also added four thousand due to the virus. As a result, 20. I understood: I can live on them poorly and economically,” StarHit quotes her.

Half of the amount from the actress goes to rent. She learned to save.

Was poor several times in her life. But we experienced these moments. There is nothing wrong with that, the body also needs a respite, it is impossible to endlessly exist under the motto “How I want!”. Now I live as I did not want, but I live … Life is a great test. If you pass it, then you are a man. And the rest is schizophrenia and idiocy, “the star admits.

She advises – no need to save, you just need to part with money. At 78, Valentina Antipovna looks gorgeous.

Do not turn into the old woman Isergil. And this is very easy: in the morning, don’t put on a bra and underpants, don’t pull on tights … Here you are cuttlefish … I want to be better. For example, I really do not like to dye eyelashes, but it is necessary. The actor must wear this uniform all his life, he is the face of the nation, “the celebrity is sure.

She does not complain about anything, but misses her daughter and granddaughter very much. They live in Greece and waiting for Titov to visit her.


Putin sends Russians on compulsory leave until the end of April

Putin declared jobless throughout April, while continuing to assure citizens of “full pay”. Only professions that are necessary for the functioning of public life are excluded from the regulation.

Putin asked the rest to stay at home. This is the only way to curb the spread of the coronavirus, he said. According to him, the climax of the crisis “worldwide, but also in Russia” is still to come.

In fact, the epidemic reached Russia with some delay. There were two isolated cases at the end of January, but according to official figures, the spread only started in mid-March – with the return of tourists from affected corona areas, especially from Europe.

Biggest daily gain

771 new infections were reported in Russia on Thursday. This is by far the largest daily gain. The number of infected people has thus increased to 3,548 in total. Most of the patients are in Moscow, but there are now cases in over 70 regions of the country.

It even hit the top corona doctor in Russia: the chief doctor of the Moscow Corona Hospital Denis Prozenko announced his illness on March 31. A few days earlier, he had shaken Putin’s hand. After some hesitation, the Kremlin chief also isolated himself at his residence near Moscow, but is not infected, according to his press spokesman. So far, 30 people have died of Covid-19.

The Russian government has repeatedly assured that it is prepared for the situation. But there are great doubts that the heavily saved medical facilities in the regions would be able to cope with the potential crowds.

Therefore, the hard preventive measures are necessary to curb the spread of Covid-19 as early as possible. The authorities use all technical means to do this: in some regions, house arrest is already monitored using cell phone tracking. Citizens can only get out there after they have received a QR code, which is sent to them by SMS or app. The validity of the code is limited in time.

The economy falls victim to the virus

According to Putin, the previous isolation measures are already showing initial success. However, the measures are likely to be expensive for the economy: the weekly stoppage costs the gross domestic product one percent estimates the director of the center for financial technologies and digital economy in Skolkovo, Oleg Schibanow. At four weeks, that would be a minus of four percent, the expert calculates.

The Russian economy is already suffering massively from the drop in oil prices. Former finance minister and current chief of audit, Alexei Kudrin, had most recently forecast a GDP decline of up to eight percent for 2020 – however, he had not yet factored in the consequences of the complete standstill in April.

The retail sector in particular will not last long, forecasts Sergei Schaworonkow, senior analyst at the Gaidar Institute. The measures taken by the Russian leadership severely restrict consumption. Only grocery stores and pharmacies are said to have opened.

There is therefore resistance among entrepreneurs. Artyom Lebedev, head of the Moscow-based designer studio of the same name, was already in awe last week about the decision to give the Russians a week off. “It’s very cool to get everyone’s salary. But where should we get the money from? Perhaps the state will compensate the plasticine for private companies? ”Asked the well-known entrepreneur. And added that there are enough people “who are generous at my expense”. Since he is not an oil company, he still asked his employees to work.

Lebedev is not the only one in this regard. After all, 60 percent of Muscovites are currently working, although many of them are officially exempt. This is also due to the fact that the “full salary” promised by Putin is not the full one: for most employees, wages consist of a relatively low basic salary and a bonus, which employees only get when they actually go to work go. In the event of illness or, as is the case now, quarantine, these premiums no longer apply.

Three million entrepreneurs threatened

But it threatens to get much worse. Because, according to the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, three million entrepreneurs in Russia are at risk of bankruptcy. The tourism and catering industry is particularly affected.

The government closed all hotels until June, cafés and restaurants in Moscow are dense, only the delivery service can keep some of them afloat. “90 percent of small and medium-sized businesses – like me – will no longer recover from the viral disease,” complained Anastasija Tatulowa, the owner of the previously successful children’s café chain “AnderSon”. The entrepreneur recently asked Putin for more government support.

In fact, the Russian government’s aid program has so far been poor. Not only in absolute numbers are the 1.2 trillion rubles (14 billion euros) significantly less than what Germany, France or the United States spend on aid.

In terms of percentage, the Kremlin, with around one percent of Russian GDP, is also significantly more economical than its western counterparts. Experts are calling for the prosperity fund to be tied up, with around 100 billion euros in reserves.

They argue that this was created for such times of crisis. Shavoronkov also criticized that the Russian leadership wants to tax bank balances over a million rubles (just under EUR 12,000) to counter-finance. Putin probably was the only one who discovered the know-how to increase taxes in times of crisis, the economist scoffed.

More: That is why Russia supports Italy in the corona crisis: Russian President Putin has pledged help to Italy in the fight against Corona. But the mission is not entirely unselfish.


Less people died from coronavirus than dies daily due to heart disease. But fast foods don’t get empty

Stop panic please. Infections have been and will be for a very long time companions of civilization.

From other infections, people are dying many, many times more than from coronavirus. The epidemic is already developing for several months, it seems that a new infection is not much worse than the flu, from which hundreds of thousands of people die every year. The number of victims of COVID-2019 is now about 5 thousand people.

You probably know people who do not want to vaccinate themselves and vaccinate their children against influenza, hepatitis, pneumococcus, meningococcus, rotavirus, measles. Or those who do not use condoms. Who does not wash his hands. Carefully look at the picture, this is what tens of thousands of people are now dying daily: tuberculosis, hepatitis B, HIV, rotavirus, meningitis, measles. Vaccination with existing vaccines would save many of them.

During the epidemic in China from coronavirus infection a little more than 3 thousand people died. Let me remind you that the epidemic is suspended there. As many in China die from heart disease every day.

No one cares: people continue to smoke, including electronic cigarettes. Continue to drink large quantities of vodka and eat junk food.

Want to be afraid of what death brings? Then you need not be afraid of the coronavirus, but of the crowns that customers of fast food put on themselves all over the world.

Do you shy away from sneezing? And at the same time, you calmly accept cute people who are coming to you in shopping centers to offer new electronic cigarettes. I assure you, on the conscience of every cigarette distributor there are more deaths than a sick Italian. You don’t care because you’re used to it.

Not to mention that they are accustomed to mass child deaths in Africa from malaria, hunger, dehydration.

Death will come for everyone, but living in a developed world, you can delay its arrival for decades.

For years you don’t want to do anything, take care of your body, and get crazy when a new threat arises. Here you put on masks and look for miraculous medicines (no, antivirals do not help, so far – none of the existing ones), you want to protect yourself, right now. Regular kisses to “clip consciousness” – is not your case? And try to think not only about today’s “terrible epidemic”, but about how to deal with new ones that will definitely be.

You try to “buy off” from daily care of your body, as a father who abandoned his family once a year buys the most expensive toy for children. Wow! They remembered that the world is filled with risk factors for death!

Stop the tantrum. Wash your hands; do not go sick to work. Let me remind you that a dramatic decrease in the death rate from infections occurred at the very beginning of the 20th century precisely because people began to adhere to the principles of hygiene. This played no less role than vaccines and antibiotics.

Where did the coronavirus come from.In the wet market, where the coronavirus broke out, visitors were treated to raw bats …

Finally, get standard vaccinations against infections. Everything that is on schedule. Children and the elderly. Weak?

Once again, rejoice that you live in a developed world. Infections were, are and will be. Yes, mortality from coronavirus will increase, yes, it will stay with us.

In a few years, a new viral infection will come, again there will be a panic and a collapse of the ruble. And people will continue to die en masse from other causes.

We can fight infections better and better. Another epidemic is a good reason to equip intensive care units, train doctors and open normal infectious diseases departments. Or at least to carry out water supply and sewerage in them, not all are equipped if you did not know. We are very lucky that the virus is so “sluggish.”

The great power of art will save Italy, everything will work out in a few weeks.

Panic is now doing more harm to the global economy than coronavirus. So spread the message among tenants your housing office. Let’s form the “immune layer”, the layer of adequacy.

And please follow the recommendations RospotrebnadzorDepartment of Health Moscow and Ministry of Health. They are correct and timely. Calm down to quarantine.

Coronavirus: only without hands !.With a slight movement, the handshake turns into a handshake! And from kisses and hugs have to abstain. Coronavirus changes age-old habits. But WHO recalls: the main thing is to wash your hands!
