The Central Bank proposed a total ban on cryptocurrencies in Russia

The regulator offers many arguments in favor of a complete ban on any operations with this type of finance for Russians.

The Central Bank of Russia proposed a total ban in Russia on the issuance, mining and circulation of cryptocurrencies.

At the same time, the authors of the initiative propose to introduce liability for violating the ban.

The risk is indicated as a reason threats associated with the spread of this type of money, including the financial “bubble”, which may arise in the local market.

The report “Cryptocurrencies: Trends, Risks, Measures” published by the Central Bank states that private investors risk completely losing their investments by investing in cryptocurrencies, the rate of which depends on public recognition and chances to use them in various transactions, including those that violate the law.

“The growth of the cryptocurrency market largely reflects the formation of a bubble in the market,” Central Bank analysts said.

The same ban, in their opinion, should be imposed on financial transactions with cryptocurrency for organizations in the sphere, as well as its use in financial instruments, the participation of Russian intermediaries in them and, in general, any participation of the domestic market in such monetary circulation.

As a timeliness of such a decision, the Central Bank recalled that Russia came in third in terms of capacities used for mining, their share is 11% of the total world resource. Further growth can disrupt the work of other enterprises, because. the amount of energy consumed will also increase.

Thus, analysts recalled the Irkutsk region with its almost two-fold increase in electricity consumption (1.6 times) against the backdrop of the lowest tariffs for residents.

As a result, last year the number of citizens whose expenses increased by 62% electricity increased 13 times more than the usual size. Judging by the data on their personal accounts, it is these consumers who take 25% of all electricity in the region.

In addition, cryptocurrencies are not provided within the country for domestic settlements, which is also a reason for their ban, the Central Bank believes.


The speaker of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, also expressed his opinion about the proposed ban.

He said that this issue is not the prerogative of the presidential administration, thus referring journalists to the relevant departments, which should analyze this issue.

On the eve of the Central Bank's statement, Bloomberg claimed that the decision of the Bank of Russia was influenced by the arguments of the FSB.

As Topnews wrote earlier, the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation announced the rules for the arrest and confiscation of cryptocurrencies from Russians.




Bloomberg: FSB and Nabiullina agreed to ban operations with cryptocurrencies

The American agency reported the reason for this step.

According to foreign media, the FSB persuaded the head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Elvira Nabiullina, to support a complete ban on operations with cryptocurrencies in Russia.

This information is provided by Bloomberg, citing anonymous sources.

According to journalists, the reason for such attention to cryptocurrency could be an increase in payments in support of the opposition, a number of organizations of which are considered undesirable in Russia.

The security forces are concerned that Russians have begun to often use the cryptocurrency financing channel, noting that the movement of funds it is difficult to trace there.

The publication says that in total, about 7 trillion rubles have accumulated in the accounts of 17 million crypto wallets in our country.

Despite the fact that funding for the opposition is a small part of this amounts, the security forces talk about the impending deterioration of the situation.

Recall that last December, the head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, said that the regulator opposes operations with cryptocurrency due to high some risks.

The Bank of Russia also pointed to the conduct of non-transparent and even illegal operations with cryptocurrency.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that the Prosecutor General's Office announced the rules for the arrest and confiscation of the cryptocurrency of Russians.

Changes in the laws were announced last December.

– If the inspectors did not warn you in advance about their visit, you do not need to open the door, – advises executive director of the association of managing companies in housing and communal services Vera Moskvina. – When the gas service, the State Housing Inspectorate or the Ministry of Emergency Situations is going to inspect the house, information about this is posted on the doors and stands in the entrance. Sometimes owners are warned by phone. If the announcement was torn down or you did not notice it and, for example, a gasman appeared on the threshold, do not immediately open the door either. Call the control room of the UK or HOA (this phone should always be at hand) and ask if an inspection is being carried out. This is how you should always act.

In general, no inspectors walk around the apartments en masse. If you yourself or your neighbors did not call a specialist from the Criminal Code, he himself will not come to you to check pipes, taps, ventilation and meters.

What is the essence of the law on marking cats, dogs and other animals?

Cats, dogs and other pets will be included in the federal animal labeling and registration law. This was reported to “Izvestia” First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Ecology, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Vladimir Burmatov.

He recalled that in November last year, the Ministry of Agriculture submitted for consideration to the State Duma amendments to the draft law “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation in Part of Improving the Legal Regulation of Relations in the Field of Veterinary Medicine”. It dealt only with the labeling of farm animals in private and farm enterprises. According to Burmatov, the item on pets will add to this bill for the second reading. The first one will take place next week, on January 26.

What is the essence of the animal labeling bill?

The bill introduces technical amendments in terms of replacing the term “identification” to the term «marking». It is also noted that in order to ensure veterinary safety in the country, all information about animals, including domestic animals, will be contained in a single database of the Federal State Information System in the field of veterinary medicine (FSIS).

“Animals are subject to individual or group labeling and recording in order to prevent the spread of contagious animal diseases, as well as to identify sources and ways of spreading pathogens of contagious animal diseases, — the bill says.

As follows from the explanatory note, animal marking is needed primarily for the traceability of livestock products. And also to promptly identify the source of an outbreak of diseases that are often common in animals and people. 

Currently, the bill contains a list of 14 types of farm animals. According to — statistics, this is more than 600 thousand individuals. These include:

  • cattle;
  • pigs;
  • sheep and goats;
  • horses;
  • donkeys;
  • mules and hinnies;
  • camels;
  • reindeer;
  • poultry;
  • rabbits;
  • fur animals;
  • bees;
  • fish;
  • other aquatic animals.

Why label pets?

Mandatory labeling of animals will help reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs, says Vladimir Burmatov. And also hold the owners of aggressive animals accountable.

“The registration of cats and dogs is what people look forward to the most, because there are so many lost animals that, if identified, would be easier to find. It is also impossible to hold negligent owners responsible for a discarded pet.  In some regions owners let their dogs go on their own, and they huddle in packs and attack people. There are already tragic examples, but owners cannot be held accountable for abandoning their dogs. Therefore, accounting for animals is needed, — explained to Izvestia Burmatov.

What is marking and registration of an animal?

Marking an animal — this is the assignment of a unique alphanumeric number to it, which is entered into the database of the Federal State Information System in the field of veterinary medicine.

“Labeling is the application to the body of an animal, fixation on the body of an animal, or the introduction into the body of an animal of visual or mixed (combination of visual and electronic) marking means and is the responsibility of animal owners,” — the bill says.

Accounting for the animal — this is the entry into the FSIS register of information about its marking (its number), information about external characteristics, purpose and method of keeping the animal and data about the owner.

It is also noted that “the account of animals will be carried out in the terms specified by the government of the Russian Federation».

Who chooses the method of marking an animal, what is it like and how much does it cost?

The owner can choose the method of marking the animal himself. The veterinary rules provide for the following types of marking (the cost is indicated according to the calculations of the Ministry of Agriculture):

  • plastic tag (price per unit — 14-20 rubles, cost of the service for establishing — 50-70 rubles);< /li>
  • subcutaneous microchip (price — 90-140 rubles, installation — 50-100 rubles);
  • electronic bolus — capsule (price — 50-200 rubles, introduction — 100-150 rubles);
  • tattooing and branding – stamp (price — 200-500 rubles; application — price not specified);
  • ring (price — 5-10 rubles, banding — 20-50 rubles);
  • collar (price — 150-250 roubles).

Who should pay for animal marking and accounting?

Recording will be kept free of charge by the veterinary service, as well certified specialists. But the marking of the animal will be carried out at the expense of its owner. 

Who can not be labeled by law?

Animals labeled before the entry into force of the new rules, as well as pets that underwent this procedure outside the Russian Federation, are not subject to re-labeling, the bill says .

In addition, wild animals in natural conditions are not subject to individual or group marking and accounting.

Center them. Gamaleya: “Sputnik V” produces twice as many antibodies as Pfizer

Plot Fourth wave of coronavirus in Russia

Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” two times more effective against the Omicron strain than the drug from Pfizer, said the NITsEM them. N. F. Gamalei, referring to the results of a joint study with the National Italian Institute Lazzaro Spallanzani.

“According to the results of the study, the vaccine” Sputnik V ” demonstrated the titer of virus-neutralizing antibodies to the strain “omicron” (B.1.1.529) more than twice as high compared to two shots of Pfizer vaccine (2.1 times as high overall and 2.6 times as high 'mdash; three months after vaccination)', 'mdash RIA Novosti quotes a message from the research center.

The study was conducted on the basis of an Italian institute. The blood sera of individuals vaccinated with Sputnik V were compared. and the Pfizer drug with similar levels of IgG antibodies and virus-neutralizing activity to the original strain registered in Wuhan.

It turned out that the Russian drug neutralized the Omicron strain; in 74.2% of cases, and the Pfizer — 56.9%. Researchers believe that “Sputnik” gives a stronger immune response due to a wider spectrum of virus-neutralizing antibodies and better imitation of infection by the adenovirus platform.

The Gamaleya Center also noted the high efficiency of the Sputnik Light drug; against «omicron» when used as a booster vaccine.

Recall that on January 17, the Australian authorities allowed entry into the country vaccinated with two doses of the Sputnik V vaccine. The Australian regulator noted that the drug from the Russian Federation showed 89% effectiveness against coronavirus infection.



What is known about the remote mining machine “Agriculture”?

From this year, the supply of mining systems “Agriculture” to the Russian army will begin. Such a system can create a minefield of any configuration at a distance of tens of kilometers in a matter of minutes. found out what features this machine has. 

Mining system “Agriculture”. Photo:

Factory tests “Agriculture” started a few years ago and were successfully completed. In 2020, the equipment was handed over to the army for military testing in conditions as close as possible to real operation, at the same time the vehicle was shown at the Victory Parade in Moscow. It was decided to adopt it based on the results of the Kavkaz-2020 exercises, where “Agriculture” involved in the drawing of the final episode of these maneuvers at the Kapustin Yar training ground. Last year, at the exercises “West-2021” the joint application of “Agriculture” was worked out; and mobile groups of heavy flamethrower systems TOS-1A Solntsepek.

What does it look like?

Combat vehicle of the “Agriculture” system resembles the usual “Grad” — on a four-axle KamAZ chassis, two packages of 25 rockets equipped with mines were mounted. “Agriculture” can send mines to a distance of 5 to 15 km. The exact characteristics of the engineering rocket are not called. The system, in addition to combat, also includes a transport-loading vehicle and containers with missiles. They allow you to reload the system much faster than a conventional MLRS.

How does it shoot?

The principle of operation is similar to the volley fire system, however, for mining “Agriculture”; solid-fuel powered ammunition is used, which contains cartridges with mines. Depending on the type of mines and their power, the number of shells in one shot may be different. Both anti-tank and anti-personnel mines are used.

All calculations in preparation for firing are carried out automatically. At the same time, the system operator determines the main parameters of the future barrier, including the number of shells and mines in a salvo. The combat vehicle is equipped with a satellite navigation system and a computer, as well as a weather station. This allows you to take into account the influence of weather on the flight of ammunition. Automated system “Agriculture” itself determines the coordinates of the future barrier.

With one salvo, a combat vehicle can cover a large area, the area of ​​u200bu200bwhich is compared with several football fields. At the same time, it is possible to mine and areas of a limited area. After the salvo, the mining area is recorded on electronic maps of the area, and the exact coordinates of the field are immediately sent to the command center via a secure communication channel. This allows you to protect your troops from unauthorized minefields.

The principle of mining by firing mine cartridges has been known for almost 40 years. During the Afghan war, artillery units were engaged in such mining as part of additional tasks. Shooting was carried out from the Grad MLRS. Especially for this, mining ammunition was developed.

What minefields does it lay?

The system's rocket projectiles are made in two versions — anti-personnel and anti-tank. The system allows you to install combined minefields. Anti-tank and anti-personnel mines can be laid in such a way that the barrier becomes insurmountable for both shooters and armored vehicles.

At the same time, a mine, once it hits the ground, becomes unrecoverable and it is almost impossible to neutralize it. In accordance with the Geneva Convention, each mine is equipped with remote self-destructors. With the help of them, the barrier can be quickly destroyed after the end of hostilities, which will help to avoid civilian casualties. The same fuses will help to blow up the entire field.

Where will it be used?

“Agriculture” effective both in conducting maneuverable combat operations, and in the conditions of combating terrorists or protecting a long state border. As noted by the creators of the NPO «Splav» them. Ganichev, the remote method of installing minefields has a number of advantages. In particular, it is distinguished by the speed of laying minefields, especially in hard-to-reach areas. At the same time, the ability of mines to deactivate or self-destruct at a given time ensures safe and quick clearance after the cessation of hostilities.

How are they mined now?

Now remote mining is carried out with the help of universal minelayers (UMZ) based on the ZIL-131 car. But their range — only 120 m. Also in service is the VSM-1 helicopter mining system based on the Mi-8, but it also allows you to mine a relatively narrow strip of terrain. In addition, aircraft cannot always be used to lay minefields directly above the battlefield or in the rear of a potential enemy.

Even in comparison with the lead nuclear submarine of the Ash project; “Severodvinsk” at the submarine “Kazan” there are significant performance differences. She is the head of the Yasen-M project.

Nuclear submarine “Kazan” literally crammed with modern equipment, computer technology. It has new characteristics in terms of physical fields, maneuverability. To date, this is the quietest submarine cruiser of the Russian Navy.

For the first time, advanced information technologies in electronic weapons were introduced on the submarine, which made it possible to increase the efficiency and quality of its combat control.

equipment from the countries of the former USSR will be installed — the new ship is being built exclusively by Russian enterprises.

APK project “Kazan” designed by the design bureau “Malachite”. The submarine has effective strike and electronic weapons, which allows you to perform tasks in all areas of the oceans. & nbsp;

Technical specifications

Technical parameters of “Kazan” and the entire project “Ash-M” (aka 08851, aka 855M) are partly classified, not much is known.

According to information, the sources of which are not disclosed, the Kazan submarine project “Ash-M” shorter nuclear submarine “Severodvinsk” by 8.3 & ndash; 9.0 m. The total length of the nuclear submarine “Kazan” project “Ash-M” 130 meters, which is 9 meters less than the nuclear submarine “Severodvinsk” project “Ash”, the maximum length of which is 139 meters. At the same time, according to available data from open sources, the crew compartment (by 4 m), the reactor compartment (0.8 & ndash; 1.5 m), and the bow compartment (approximately 3.5 m) were reduced.

From abroad, information was received that the place of the sonar complex MGK-600B “Irtysh-Amphora” installed two upgraded. New sonar systems are similar to “Lira” installed on the diesel-electric submarine “Lada”. They do not have a spherical, but a curved shape, which takes up less space, this gives the submarine a better search ability.


In the project “Ash-M” implemented a new direction — intellectualization of combat operations. For the first time, advanced information technologies were introduced both in the electronic armament of the cruiser — this increases the efficiency and quality of combat control.

Submarines of the Yasen-M project; have a surface displacement of 9.5 thousand tons. Maximum immersion depth — 600 meters. Underwater speed —30 knots. Armed with — eight launchers for missiles “Onyx”, “Caliber” and Zircon, as well as ten torpedo tubes for 30 torpedoes. 

History of Creation

Launched on March 31, 2017. The start of testing of the submarine was scheduled for 2017. September 25, 2018 entered the factory sea trials.

The transfer of the submarine to the fleet was originally scheduled for 2019. However, in May 2019, it was officially announced that it would not be handed over to the Russian Navy in 2019 due to the need to refine auxiliary systems that do not meet the requirements of the Ministry of Defense. It was reported that this could take the whole of 2020 and Sevmash will hand over the ship to the Ministry of Defense only at the end of 2020. Transferred to the Russian Navy on May 7, 2021. Solemn ceremony of admission to the Navy of the nuclear submarine cruiser (APK) of the fourth generation “Kazan” was held in Severodvinsk at the enterprise “Sevmash” under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolay Evmenov.

On May 30, 2021, the nuclear submarine left Severodvinsk to its duty station at the Zapadnaya Litsa base.

There is information that the delay in the commissioning of “Kazan” associated with the preparation, refinement and adaptation of nuclear submarine launchers for launching the latest 3M22 Zircon hypersonic missiles from it. Previously, the ship was planned for the Kalibr missiles.


Currently, the Russian Navy includes three submarines of the Yasen projects; and “Ash-M”, six more ships of this type are at various stages of construction.

The armament of these ships consists of eight launchers for missiles “Caliber”, “Onyx” and “Zircon” and ten torpedo tubes for launching 32 missiles and 30 torpedoes.

In 2022, Sevmash will plans to transfer two more nuclear submarines to the fleet: the strategic missile carrier Knyaz Oleg; and multi-purpose nuclear submarine “Novosibirsk”.
