Red alert: Russian toxic invasion of Northen Europe started. Is this a second Chernobyl?

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.

Russian language is very difficult

 The chief coach of Russian national soccer team, under whose leadership on 16 AUgust Russian team will play a friendlie with the team from Latvia, has shared his impressions over Russian championship. "I take private classes, but Russian language is very difficult. And until I know it pretty well, I am not going to speak on it. As for my first words to the players... Consider, I'll remind them that a new EURO 2008 is coming up, and that we have to unite our efforts and try to succeed. I'll tell'em they have to be proud that they got to defend the National colors. Thuogh I think all players understand it anyway. Then we'll start getting ready for the match against Latvia. It's not that much time left: on the first day platers
will recover from their club matches, the next day we'll devote to light trainings. I think in these two days we'll have enough time to know each other better.  "Also it will be pretty interesting for me to take a look at your under 21 national team: this team is our future, and for me it's of a first importance to keep an eye on it", siad Hiddink to the official site of RFS. On a question what had he known about Latvia Dutch specialist replied: "I've seen the video with the last game of this team and I imagine what are they able on. But honestly, I'm more concerned not about them, but about our team. It's more important for me to find contacts with Russian players".
russian traffic rules
1 New changes were brought into the traffic rules

New changes were brought into the traffic rules

Basically, old rules return, as for some definite number of regular breaking of the rules on the road a driver has his license taken away. The project of this law was passed by the State Duma and the law will be in use this autumn. One more innovation is an automatic rule break fixation. Nowadays a police camera records traffic accidents, and computer judges whose's guilty and what's his punishment. By the way, not only the one who has
taken his friend's/spouse's car is guilty, but a car owner also. Driver's categories number is expected to be increasing too. For example, A-category will be split, different motobikes will require different types of a licence to have depending on their power. Also for D-category different options will appear: somebody will be only a small bus driver, other one will be able to make long trips between cities.

700 million roubles on improvement of Moscow image.

Authorities of Moscow have supported "the Complex target program of increase of the international authority and formation of a positive image of Moscow for 2007-2009" to correct an image of Russian capital. The nearest years capital authorities are going to spend more than 700 million roubles for this porpouse. They have decided to allocate 450 million roubles from the budget, and 250 million more to receive at investors. The program plans the massed information campaign with use of both traditional mass-media, and various Internet-technologies. By the plan of officials, representation about Moscow should
be as about a megacity-pilot, successfully finding the decisions of the most complex city problems. Developers assure, that these means will bring not only moral satisfaction to muscovites, but also a profit in due course. Officials will begin with the Internet. In fact the city even does not have English-speaking portal on which all information interesting foreigners would be placed. It complicates information search in Moscow for foreign tourists. It is required to capital authorities about a year to create a qualitative and effective English-speaking portal.

To whom thefts from the Hermitage are favourable?

221 unique products of jeweller art were gone from Russian department of the Hermitage. Today two persons are accused of theft. The husband and the son of plundered collection`s owner Larissa Zavadskaja, suddenly deceased. Both of them are detained and are under examination. Nikolay Zavadsky-junior worked in a museum for some years and, under the version of consequence, during his work thefts of silver jeweller masterpieces were made. That is remarkable, losses have stopped after his dismissal. It would seem, all is clear. But could one family without assistants and intermediaries make this scale swindle? There is an opinion, that it was the order of an antiquarian mafia. Many experts refer in opinion, that at all their external sensational nature, thefts in one of the main museums of Russia are frivolous. Estimate: the volume of thefts for 5 years has not exceeded 130 million
roubles. At the same time in Petersburg was gone a picture by Mark Shagal, at once estimated on one of the western auctions in half a million dollars! From a hall of impressionists of the same Hermitage thieves have born a picture by Jean-Leon Zheroma «Pool in the Harem» in insurance cost in one million dollars. It means, that a sensation around of present theft from the Hermitage is artificial. To whom is it favourable? Here are some of versions. The purpose - is to clean the person, who is stirring to their profitable "business". To put in Piotrovsky's armchair the person which will sharply raise financial turns of "business". Or the foes-careerists of mister Piotrovsky wish to clean the head of one of the basic museums of the country. And to borrow its throne (by the way - the highest in the museum world).
