The next day Lukashenka applied to the peoples of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine with an appeal not to let the war start and to stop their politicians.

In response to these statements, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov named Lukashenka’s words about Kiev’s interference in Minsk’s affairs are nonsense and invited him to “drink some water”. “We think about Ukraine and wish only peace and prosperity to Belarus. <...> Ukrainians are friends of Belarusians, do not manipulate by blaming your neighbors. Look for the beam in your own eye, ”Avakov said.

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.

– In 2018, Alexander Shamazov was released from prison, after which he took the lead in the criminal hierarchy of the region, in particular, he appointed the so-called “overseers” over various conditionally divided territories of Kuzbass, – said the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Kemerovo Region.

Junior closes negotiation with Red Bull Bragantino for César Haydar

And it is a fact. After several weeks of proposals and counterproposals, calculator, fine print, clauses and tug of war, the negotiation between Junior and Red Bull Bragantino was finally closed for the federative and economic rights of central defender César Haydar.

EL HERALDO learned that the Brazilian team will finally pay the Sharks $ 2,800,000 for the transfer of 70% of the rights of the 19-year-old defender. The shark group reserves the remaining 30% to participate in future negotiations.

The player has been training outside the group with Michael Rangel, who is looking for a team abroad to be transferred.

Red Bull Bragantino, Brazil’s first division team, which is based in the city of Braganca Paulista, in the State of Sao Paulo, must pay 50% of the amount next week to seal the agreement and receive Haydar in the country of samba to take medical exams.

Valle del Cauca’s José Velasco, the defender’s representative, said that Bragantino’s interest in Haydar has been going back to last year, when he debuted in the first division at the hands of Luis Fernando Suárez.

In his first games as a rojiblanco, Haydar showed his technical wealth and character to play without being noticed that he was a rookie.

The coach Julio Comesaña, who at the time told the defender that he had to improve several issues of his behavior (something that Haydar later admitted and said had served him a lot), has also given him a chance in the starter and Suán’s boy ( Atlántico) has not disappointed.

In the Colombia U-18 team he also stood out and was champion in a friendly homer in Japan. It will surely be in the plans of coach Arturo Reyes for the U-20 team that will play the South American Tournament, next year in Colombian territory (from February 2 to 27).

Bragantino, which since 2019 belongs to Red Bull GmbH, an Austrian company that markets the energy drink of the same name, has been incorporating young players with talent and projection.

At the beginning of this year they hired until 2024 the Ecuadorian Leo Realpe, another 19-year-old defender who had shown his quality in Independiente del Valle, current champion of the Copa Sudamericana.
