London announced the choice of the EU between the hydrocarbons of Russia and assistance to Kiev

The British prime minister is convinced that soon the European Union will have to choose whether to increase its dependence on hydrocarbons from Russia or stand up for Ukraine. He assured that Great Britain does not want to be an “enemy of Russia”

Boris Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed the opinion that soon the European Union will have a choice whether to increase its dependence on Russian hydrocarbon supplies or to speak in support of Ukraine, reports Bloomberg.

“We hope that our friends will realize that there will soon be a choice, whether they are hooked even more on Russian hydrocarbons that go through giant new pipelines, or stand up for Ukraine and stand up for the cause of peace and stability, if you will allow me to put it that way.” & mdash; said the head of government.

Johnson stressed that Great Britain does not want to be an “ enemy of Russia '' because of Ukraine, but expresses a “ commitment to democracy and freedom '' like its allies on the European continent.

The prime minister also noted that London “ reacted quickly '' when Poland asked for help in dealing with the “ contrived crisis '' on its border with Belarus, where the regime of Alexander Lukashenko provoked thousands of migrants to cross the EU borders in order to undermine the security of European states.

On November 14, The Mirror newspaper, citing sources, reported that British authorities can send 600 people from the SAS special forces unit to Ukraine. According to one of the interlocutors, this may happen in the near future. The reason for the transfer is the conviction of British intelligence MI6 and Boris Johnson in the imminent invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine.

In late October, The Washington Post wrote about the pulling together of the Russian military to the border with Ukraine. American and European officials told the publication that they see “ unusual movements of equipment and military on the western flank of Russia '', which began immediately after the completion of the Russian-Belarusian exercises West-2021, which took place from 10 to 15 September. The article also noted that the movement of troops is taking place against the background of a toughening of Russia's position in relation to Ukraine, and the conflict in Donbass is “ entering a new stage. ''

In early November, the US Department of Defense announced “ unusual activity '' Russian military near the border with Ukraine. The Pentagon called on Russia to clarify its intentions and warned that any aggression or escalation would be “ seriously worried. '' USA.

Later, the S & uuml; ddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, citing diplomatic sources, reported that the US had approached the UK, France and Germany on this issue. & laquo; Reason [appeal] & mdash; the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine and the associated high potential for escalation '', & mdash; wrote the edition.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the movement of Russian military equipment and army units across the country is exclusively a matter of Russia, and the latest publications about their appearance near the border with Ukraine are “ not even worth commenting on ''; .

US pledged Russia’s response to anti-satellite missile tests

The head of the State Department accused Moscow of testing anti-satellite weapons. According to the US, Russia launched a rocket at one of its satellites. Presumably, the target of the attack was the Soviet satellite Kosmos-1408

Anthony Blinken

The United States, together with its allies, will respond to Russia for anti-satellite missile tests, which endangered everyone who tries to explore or develop space for peaceful purposes. This was stated by the head of the State Department Anthony Blinken.

On November 15, the secretary said, Russia “recklessly conducted destructive tests of a direct launch anti-satellite missile against one of its satellites.” As a result of these actions, he noted, more than 1,500 fragments appeared in outer space, which “ can be tracked. ''

According to Blinken, there are likely to be 'hundreds of thousands of smaller orbiting debris' as well. He stressed that this space debris “ will now threaten satellites and other spacecraft vital to the security, economy and scientific interests of all countries for decades. ''

will increase the risk for astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and for other activities associated with manned space travel '', & mdash; Blinken noted, adding that these tests had irresponsibly jeopardized the work of peaceful space explorers.

In the evening, CNN, citing two American officials, reported that Russia had conducted large-scale tests of anti-satellite weapons over the weekend. According to one of the interlocutors, this could create a “ potentially dangerous field of debris '' in space. He also stated that Russia launched a ground-based missile at a target in orbit.

According to LeoLabs, a private space tracking company, “ multiple objects '' were recorded near the alleged location of the Kosmos-1408 satellite. NASA noted that this Soviet signal reconnaissance satellite was launched in 1982 and RBK sent a request to the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

US Space Command has confirmed that a rare and potentially hazardous 'debris event' has occurred, but did not provide details or mention Russia. “ We are working with inter-agency organizations, including the Department of State and NASA, on this data and will provide updates in the near future, '' & mdash; reported in the command. They noted that now experts are trying to establish the identity and properties of these debris so that all space powers have the information necessary to maneuver satellites in a possible collision.

On the morning of November 15, the ISS successfully missed space debris twice. The station and the crew did not suffer: cosmonauts and astronauts took refuge in the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft for safety reasons. and Crew Dragon. NASA said the risk of collision with space debris was “ very small. '' “ The orbit of the object, due to which the crew was forced today, according to standard procedures, to transfer to spaceships, has moved away from the ISS orbit, the station is in the green zone, '' & mdash; spoke at Roscosmos.

Migrants at the Polish-Belarusian border threw stones at the police

Stones, rubbish and sticks were thrown at the Polish police. Migrants accompany the attacks with shouts, the police in response throw smoke bombs at the attackers and use water cannons

Migrants at the Belarusian-Polish border started throwing stones at the Polish police. RBC is broadcasting what is happening.

The footage shows how migrants run up one by one and in groups to the barbed wire separating the border line and throw stones and various objects at the Polish police with shouts. Several police officers in special equipment gathered in a group in front of the fence separating the territory of Poland and covered themselves from flying stones and sticks with shields. Migrants accompany the attacks with shouts, often obscene.

In response to the attacks, the police fire noise and smoke grenades at migrants. On Polish territory, two water cannons are moving along the border, which periodically fire volleys both at migrants in the border area in Belarus and in neutral territory.

A helicopter is flying over the scene of the collisions.

The Polish authorities said that in the area of ​​the border crossing “ Kuznica '', which was closed due to the crisis, about 3.5 thousand migrants gathered on the territory of Belarus.

The migration crisis on the border of Poland and Belarus escalated in early November. Thousands of migrants, mainly from the Middle East, have gathered on the Belarusian territory in the border zone. They are trying to enter the territory of Poland in order to then try to obtain asylum in the EU countries.

Migrants have set up a temporary camp near the border and periodically try to get into Polish territory in groups.

In response, the Polish authorities have placed at the border of military personnel, additional police units and forces of the border guard service. The Polish border checkpoint is blocked by a temporary fence, behind which there is a police cordon and special equipment.

Earlier, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said that the European Union would not let a single migrant from Belarus through.

In Novorossiysk due to bad weather sirens turned on

The authorities of Novorossiysk turned on sirens due to unfavorable weather conditions, the press service of the city administration reported.

According to forecasters, a hurricane with wind gusts up to 33-38 meters is expected in the city per second.

“ The alert signal “ Attention everyone! '' is on, sirens sounded. The signal informs about a complex of unfavorable weather conditions predicted on the territory of Novorossiysk '', & ndash; said in a press release.

It is specified that the strongest wind over the past day was recorded at Sheskharis & ndash; gusts reached 28-29 meters per second.

Earlier, the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia for the Krasnodar Territory warned that during the day on November 16, a very strong wind is expected in the section from the city of Anapa to the village of Magri, a hurricane with gusts up to 33- 38 meters per second. Residents of the Kuban were urged to be careful and follow the information alerts.

Today it was reported that almost 153,000 people were left without electricity in Dagestan. The reason was bad weather & ndash; wind and snow.

Last week, due to freezing rain in the Jewish Autonomous Region, more than 20 settlements were left without electricity.



The target is hit. What kind of weapon is Russia testing against satellites?

But everything started so well yesterday! The international crew of the ISS safely escaped a collision with a cloud of space debris of Chinese origin. But in the morning this blissful picture was greatly spoiled by voices from the United States: the trash was Russian.

Who is to blame?

Worse, it was fresh. & Nbsp; State Department Spokesman Ned Price accused Russia of testing anti-satellite weapons, which led to the formation of one and a half thousand large objects of space debris. Small ones could not be counted. Its boss, Anthony Blinken , called the trials “ reckless and irresponsible. '' Presumably, the tests of American anti-satellite weapons in 2008 were, on the contrary, reasonable and responsible.

Before that, the Chinese had been shooting at satellites in 2007: it was from these wreckages, according to the Russian version, that the cosmonauts were hiding in the corners yesterday. And in 2019, India did the same. For which she is grateful, so it is for using as a target an object specially launched into low orbit: the debris burned out long ago in the atmosphere. By the way, firing at satellites is not prohibited by international documents. One consideration keeps all countries from deploying such systems on a massive scale.

Anti-satellite weapons are double-edged. One has only to start clicking other people's satellites, and you yourself will be left alive without your space reconnaissance, navigation, global positioning communications and the Internet! & Nbsp;

Sighting orbit

Apparently, the old Soviet electronic reconnaissance satellite Kosmos-1408, launched in 1982 and long past its service life, became a victim of the tests. Strictly speaking, it also belonged to the category of space debris, but it was one piece, not a cut.

For the first time, the United States and the USSR thought about anti-satellite weapons soon after the appearance of satellites as such. For example, we were working on the project “ Outfit-V ''. The system was supposed to be a conventional silo-based ballistic missile UR-100N, or rather, its Rokot modification. The missiles were supposed to be supplied with special “ space '' warheads stuffed not with multiple warheads with nuclear devices, but with attack satellites. The latter, from the moment they were put into orbit, had to arrange a hunt for alien satellites. The project was ordered to live long soon after the collapse of the USSR.

In Russian times, priority was given to less costly but more effective anti-satellite systems. One of the developments of this kind is the Burevestnik aviation missile system. Please do not confuse it with a promising nuclear-powered cruise missile, which received the same name following a popular vote a few years ago. & Nbsp;

'Petrel' and others

Not much is known about the space Petrel. In 2018, a MiG-31 fighter in the configuration of a flying laboratory with an unknown rocket under the fuselage was first seen at the Ramenskoye airfield. Quite quickly, this product was associated with the project of an anti-satellite complex with the code “ Petrel '' and index 14K168. It is a two-stage rocket with a length of approximately 9 m.

An interesting feature of the 'Petrel' project its combat load is considered. It seems that for intercepting enemy spacecraft, not a conventional warhead will be used, but a special maneuvering satellite of a small size. The principle of hitting the target is unknown. Foreign sources mention the possibility of kinetic interception, as well as the presence of a high-explosive or even nuclear warhead.

“ Most likely, in this case we are talking about testing an anti-satellite system operating on the principle of kinetic interception. That is, the interceptor crashes into its target, literally rams it, and does not destroy it by detonating its head part '', & mdash; said on the air of Echo of Moscow Senior Fellow, United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research in Geneva Pavel Podvig.

Burevestnik working so: weapon carrier & mdash; MiG-31 & mdash; delivers a rocket to the border with near space, makes a “ slide '' and leaves for the base. Taking advantage of the dynamic acceleration, the rocket flies upward by inertia, then the first stage engine is turned on, then & mdash; second & hellip; & nbsp;

We have no direct evidence that the Burevestnik complex was used to intercept the old Soviet satellite yesterday. But, according to some reports, its tests were scheduled precisely for 2021

Another potential killer of satellites in orbit & mdash; it is the A-235 Nudol territorial missile defense system. In fact, it covers the Moscow industrial region from ICBM warheads. But as an 'elective' capable, according to the terms of reference, shoot down maneuverable & nbsp; manned and unmanned spacecraft. Of course, every launch of Nudoli by a single satellite & mdash; it's like a sparrow from a cannon. The cost of the rocket is many times higher than the price of the most sophisticated satellite. But if it was about proving that the level of domestic science and technology allows kinetic interception, then why not? & Nbsp;

By the way

After the creation of the material, the Russian military department circulated an official statement, which, in particular, said: “ The Russian Ministry of Defense considers hypocritical statements by representatives of the State Department and the Pentagon, who tried to accuse the Russian Federation of creating 'risks'. for astronauts of the International Space Station & hellip; November 15 p. The Russian Defense Ministry successfully carried out a test, as a result of which the inoperative Russian spacecraft & bdquo; Celina-D & ldquo;, which had been in orbit since 1982, was hit. the orbits did not represent and will not pose a threat to orbital stations, spacecraft and space activities.

Fragments are included in the main catalog of the domestic space control system and immediately taken for tracking until they cease to exist. ''



Ministry of Education: the issue of QR codes for school employees is not discussed yet

Plot The fourth wave of coronavirus in Russia

The head of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation Sergey Kravtsov said that the issue of introducing QR codes for teachers and school employees is not currently being discussed, writes TASS.

The Minister stressed that the regions should independently make decisions on measures to combat coronavirus in schools.

Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation: the United States is testing strike-combat weapons in space

The Pentagon is actively developing the latest combat weapons and is testing them in orbit without notification, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

“ The actions of the American side are assessed as a threat and are incompatible with the declared the purposes of the peaceful use of outer space '', & ndash; think the Russian defense department.

They also called hypocritical statements made by representatives of the State Department and the Pentagon, who tried to accuse the Russian Federation of creating “ risks ''; for the cosmonauts of the ISS.

The Defense Ministry recalled that Russia has long been calling on the United States and other space powers to sign an agreement to prevent the deployment of weapons in space. The draft of this treaty has been submitted to the UN, but its adoption is blocked.

“ At the same time, the United States created the Space Command in 2020 and officially adopted a new strategy for space. One of its main goals is to “ create a comprehensive military advantage in space '', & ndash; noticed in the ministry.

Earlier, the US military said that the Russian side allegedly tested an & nbsp; anti-satellite & nbsp; right ascension rocket. The shell hit a Soviet satellite, the debris of which threatened the ISS. The State Duma replied that this statement is not true, Russia & nbsp; is not engaged in the militarization of outer space.

The hackathon is important. Where artificial intelligence developers compete

Plot National projects

This year, within the framework of the federal project “ Artificial Intelligence '' of the national project “ Digital Economy '' passed 8 hackathons, 1000 young developers took part in them. On November 19-21, a regional hackathon will be held in Chelyabinsk, and on November 26-28, the last, final hackathon of 2021 will be held in Samara. What do the projects give to the country and the programmers participating in them?

“ Until 2024, artificial intelligence hackathons will be held in many regions of the country. In total, more than 100 events are planned within the framework of the federal project & bdquo; Artificial Intelligence & ldquo;. The government allocates more than 700 million rubles for these purposes, about 300 million will go from extra-budgetary sources. & mdash; tells Dmitry Chernyshenko, Deputy Prime Minister … & mdash; This is an important investment in Russia's technological leadership. The efforts of the state and business are aimed at personnel, scientific and technological development of the AI ​​sphere. Thanks to hackathons, the country's professional AI community is expanding. For participants & mdash; this is a great chance to demonstrate your professional qualities, declare yourself and contribute to the development of the digital economy. ''

Until 2024 such events as past hackathons, as well as lectures on artificial intelligence from leading experts in this field, 116 are planned. In such events, as a rule, young people (from 14 years old) who see their future in the field of technical developments … At the hackathon from the organizers for the development teams, cases are offered & mdash; as a rule, these are real life situations. With the help of programming and searching for new solutions, participants come to optimal solutions for the case & mdash; each has its own. The company can implement the best solution. So, for example, the case directors at the last hackathon in St. Petersburg (from 12 to 14 November) were MTS, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, etc.

For people and cities

And in Chuvashia, the suppliers of the last, final case for those who reached the last level of the competition were the Ministries of Digital Development, Information Policy and Mass Communications of the Chuvash Republic and the ANO Institute for Territorial Development of the Chuvash Republic. A small touch to how exactly the competition takes place & mdash; their team case was solved within 48 hours.

The task was as follows: the participants had to create a map of the needs of the residents of the city of Cheboksary on the basis of citizens' appeals to the authorities. Three winning teams received a cash prize in the amount of 400,000 rubles for all.

Head of the Chuvash Republic Oleg Nikolaev The past event and its results were delightful. “ The results of the hackathon on artificial intelligence gave pride to the entire Chuvash Republic. Having bypassed 22 teams, the first place was taken by students of school No. 61 in the city of Cheboksary. I would like to note separately that we are extremely interested in the development of the IT industry. It is a great honor for us to become a part of the All-Russian Artificial Intelligence Community. & mdash; he says. & mdash; Today we have seen with a live example that the hackathon & mdash; it is a chance that gives young professionals the opportunity to express themselves and take the first steps towards their professional future. The hackathon showed how rich in talents the Chuvash land is. And our future is definitely in good hands '', & nbsp;

“ The hackathon on artificial intelligence in Cheboksary was held at the highest level. says Kristina Mainina, Minister of Digital Development, Information Policy and Mass Communications of the Chuvash Republic . & mdash; It was difficult to determine the winners, the participants approached the solution of our case so seriously. The hackathon proved that in Chuvashia there are many talented guys, schoolchildren who are ready to connect their lives with IT. ''

The first place according to the results of the hackathon was taken by the SIMP team from Chuvashia & mdash; on the basis of artificial intelligence, they created an interactive map that analyzes all citizens' appeals and data from open sources. “ Problematic colors are highlighted in color, the higher the problem level is '' the richer the color & raquo ;, & mdash; told AiF developers. The map can produce statistics for the city, for individual districts, change the color of markers depending on changes in the urban environment. & Nbsp;

“ It's nice to see how the interest in artificial intelligence technologies grows throughout the country, and our project helps specialists not only get acquainted and exchange ideas with each other, but also provides an opportunity for career and professional growth '', & mdash; said Alexey Agafonov, Deputy General Director of ANO Rossiya & mdash; a land of opportunity '' .

Hackathons schedule for 2022 has not yet been published. When it appears, everyone will be able to apply for participation. Now, until November 24, you can register for participation in the last, 10th hackathon in Samara.
