Due to heavy forest fires in Leningrad Obl. Region and Karelia there is a danger for European counties soon to be covered with caustic clouds coming from North West of Russia. This is a first time after Chernobyl disaster at 1986, when a nuclear power plant blew up and poisonous clouds with nuclear particles could move to Europe. That time Europe was lucky – winds stepped into
play and clouds went to inner Russian regions, causing in thousands of cases radiation illnesses across Western Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Thousands of families left their houses and everything they had, because of nuclear pollution. Still there is an area around Chernobyl which can not be inhabited by people. Hundreds of villages are standing empty.
The aim of these experiments was to see if they could sustain life within an organism while they separated various organs and parts of the animals from the animal as a whole. They even go so far as to prove that a dogs head
could be sustained separated from the body - so long as they pumped blood through the head. Gruesome stuff. NO wonder some people protest against animal testing. This is pretty awful to watch - but fascinating.

The reason is because the goverment of Lukashenko implements special limits for importing American and European cigarettes. And those limits are split between a few Belarus companies. But the demand for Marlboro and other brands already exceeds the limit, so in September experts say there would be a lack of famous cigarettes on the Belarus market. Sources in government say that there are no reasons to worry.
And that there would be no tobacco crisis. But it’s important to mention that such a crisis already took a place in 2005, when people in Belarus were totally deprived of the western tobacco products.

They expect that soon the deficit would appear and exceed the 500 million quantity, which is one quarter of total cigarette consumption in Belarus. Importers also say that their main resources on warehouses would end by the middle of September.
