Russian language is very difficult

"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.

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.
