According to the newspaper, the indictment in the case, approved by the Prosecutor General's Office, contains episodes related to supplies under military contracts with Voentelekom. At the same time, most of the damage, totaling 6.7 billion rubles, was due to alleged fraud in the purchase of new-generation Azart radio stations. at, as the investigation believed, inflated rather than market prices. During the preliminary investigation, Arslanov was charged with both episodes.

According to the episode with «Azartami» The defense presented evidence that there was no market for such means of communication, after which these charges were removed from the case, and the case itself was divided into two parts, while the investigation of the episode with the radio stations continued.

We are talking about the purchase of routers, wires and other consumables for 1.6 billion rubles. Products, according to investigators, in violation of contracts were of Chinese origin and were purchased at inflated prices. The investigation also believes that Arslanov and his accomplices stole 191.4 million rubles. out of almost 250 million rubles allocated to Voentelecom to “a set of works on designer's supervision of monitoring and network management centers, monitoring systems for communication satellites.”

At the same time, as the newspaper notes, the damage in this episode was fully repaid by Voentelekom, and the investigation learned about the alleged fraud from pre-trial agreements between the alleged accomplices and the prosecutor's office.

The case of embezzlement during the conclusion of state contracts for the maintenance and repair of special military equipment was initiated in August 2013. In October 2019, Kommersant said that Arslanov had taken a written undertaking not to leave, and Pavel Kutakhov, the head of the department of orders for improving the technical basis of the command and control system of the armed forces — arrested. The crimes imputed to the latter were related to the supply of special communications. According to investigators, Arslanov's control equipment could have been supplied at inflated prices.

The expert told how much the dollar will cost after the May holidays

Exchangers began to buy dollars from the Russians at a predatory rate.

The ruble exchange rate has recently fixed against the dollar thanks to support measures taken by the Russian authorities.

For example, such measures include currency restrictions, the sale of foreign exchange earnings by exporters, and a trade surplus after blocking the export of foreign currency abroad.

However, the situation may change after the May holidays.

Financial analyst Vladislav Antonov spoke about this.

In an interview with Life, he said that a strong ruble would not suit the Ministry of Finance for budget layouts. In addition, geopolitical factors are putting pressure on the ruble, which could lead to a fall in the Russian currency.

“By mid-May, we expect the dollar to recover to 80. Before growth, it is able to test the level of 70 rubles. By mid-May, the euro exchange rate is expected to rise to the zone of 80-82 rubles & # 8221;, & # 8211; he said.

Against this background, economist Igor Nikolaev spoke about new trends in Russian exchange offices.

He pointed out that Russian citizens carry small banknotes of currency there, while they themselves exchangers offer more and more extortionate rates.

In general, Igor Nikolaev considers the current exchange rate to be beneficial, but at the same time, the economist urges to take into account the likelihood of introducing severe restrictions at any time, writes “MK”.

Nikolaev recalled that the ruble remains the national currency , so in Russia we will live with our currency.

The expert said that we should not panic and calmly observe the situation.

At the same time, in exchange offices, despite the unfavorable rate for selling, Russians are increasingly selling foreign currency.

According to the expert, the last time he saw this was in the 2000s, when people brought $10, $20 or $50 banknotes to exchange to buy something immediately after leaving the exchanger.

“In a branch of one of the large banks, they offer to buy a dollar for 76 rubles, and sell it for only 65. The same situation with the euro: buying for 80 rubles versus selling for 68&#8221 ;, – said the economist, urging not to sell dollars and euros unnecessarily.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that the dollar fell below 69 rubles for the first time in two years. This happened the day before at the opening of trading at the Moscow Exchange.

Vučić says Putin’s words about Kosovo complicated Serbia’s position

Putin's words, comparing the situations of Kosovo and Donbass, complicated the situation for Serbia, Vučić said. He also drew attention to the statement of Scholz, who noted that all countries of the Western Balkans should enter the EU, “including Kosovo”

Alexander Vučić

Statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin to UN Secretary General António Guterres about The analogy of the situation in Kosovo and Donbas has complicated the position of Serbia, President Aleksandar Vucic told reporters. A video of the press approach has been posted on his YouTube channel.

On April 26, Putin held talks with Guterres. During the meeting, he recalled that Kosovo was recognized by the International Court of Justice and its decision “was supported by all.” “If this is so, then the republics of Donbass <…> have the same right, without turning to the central authorities of Ukraine, to declare their sovereignty, because the precedent has been created, right? said the Russian president.

Vučić, commenting on this statement, noted that it complicated the position of Serbia. The President is on a working visit to Germany, where he held talks with Chancellor Olaf Scholz and is due to meet with Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock.

Scholz had previously met in Berlin with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti. At a joint press conference after the talks, the Chancellor declared that “the Western Balkans belong to Europe”; and “all these states should join the EU in the future, including Kosovo.”

“Did you hear Olaf Scholz, what exactly does he say? And who does he think is responsible for what is happening in Bosnia, what he thinks should happen in Kosovo, and also on the issue of sanctions? <…> The statements barely reflect what is going on at the meeting. Our position is complex, terribly complex, and further complicated by President Putin's statements. <…> In the political sense, it has never been harder, and I am afraid that with everything that lies ahead in the economic sense, it has never been harder, — Vucic noted after that.

Serbia did not impose sanctions against Russia. At the same time, she joined the UN General Assembly resolution condemning Russia's actions in Ukraine.

These categories of persons no longer have privileged access to the EU, they need to provide documentary evidence of the purpose of the trip when obtaining a visa, and also pay the visa fee in full— €80, the European Commission noted.

The agreement between the European Union and Russia on the simplified issuance of visas has been in force since the summer of 2007. This is a short-term visa with the right to stay no more than 90 days within 180 days.

The measures do not affect ordinary citizens of Russia, all visa benefits for them remain in force, the report specifies.

“Today’s recommendations will help Member States and their consulates apply the partial suspension [of the agreement on facilitation of issuance of visas], explain the procedures and conditions for issuing visas to Russian citizens in any EU consular office and ensure the possibility of issuing visas on humanitarian grounds,— declared in the commission.

The EU partially suspended the visa facilitation agreement with Russia at the end of February, following the start of a Russian special operation in Ukraine. Brussels' decision affected certain categories of Russian citizens— members of official delegations, government, parliament, as well as businessmen.

Lukashenka considers nuclear strike in conflict with Ukraine unacceptable

The President of Belarus believes that the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine can “tear off our globe”, which “will fly away to no one knows where.” At the same time, he expressed the opinion that Putin does not want a global clash with NATO ” alt=”Lukashenko considers a nuclear strike in the conflict with Ukraine unacceptable” />

Alexander Lukashenko (left)

The use of nuclear weapons in the conflict with Ukraine is unacceptable, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said in an interview with The Associated Press. A fragment of the conversation was published by the state agency BelTA.

The journalist asked Lukashenka if it was possible to use nuclear weapons if the hostilities dragged on. “I absolutely believe that the use of nuclear weapons is unacceptable, also because it is next to us. We are completely here, we are not across the ocean, like the United States of America. And that's why it's unacceptable… This can disrupt our earthly ball from orbit, and we will fly away to no one knows where. The use of nuclear weapons is unacceptable,— the president replied.

At the same time, he emphasized that the question of whether Russia can launch a nuclear strike should be ask Moscow. “Most likely, Putin does not want a global clash with NATO. Take advantage of this and do everything so that this does not happen,— he added.

Moscow has previously ruled out plans to use nuclear weapons in connection with the operation in Ukraine. At the end of March, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that any outcome of hostilities would not be a reason for a nuclear strike. At the same time, he emphasized that, according to the Russian concept of security, nuclear weapons can only be used in the event of a real threat to the existence of the country. Peskov also clarified that “the presence of an existential threat and a special military operation are in no way connected with each other.”

The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, also spoke about whether Russia can use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Answering a related question, he recalled that the START-3 treaty was signed on Russia's initiative, and emphasized that it was Moscow that initiated the discussion of additional obligations in this area in the UN Security Council.

The possibility of a nuclear strike on Ukraine was also rejected by Russia's permanent mission to the UN. “These stuff [about the possibility of Russia using nuclear weapons] do not have the slightest rational basis, they are aimed at whipping up a degree of anti-Russian hysteria and are designed for a public that is not familiar with the basics of Russian security and defense policy, which is purely defensive in nature,” — Dmitry Polyansky, Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, stated.

On February 27, Putin ordered the Russian deterrence forces to be put on special alert.

Zelensky’s office called the deadline for the readiness of Ukrainian forces for a counteroffensive

Aleksey Arestovich announced Ukraine's possible readiness for a “counteroffensive” by the end of June Advisor to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine Aleksey Arestovich said that Ukraine could prepare for a counteroffensive by the end of June or early July. He linked the possibility of this with significant deliveries of foreign weapons. Zelensky's office called the deadline for the readiness of Ukrainian forces for a counteroffensive” />

Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the Ukrainian president, believes that Ukraine may be ready for a counteroffensive by early July, provided that foreign arms supplies continue. Arestovich stated this in an interview with the TV channel “Ukraine 24”.

“A counteroffensive is possible with the accumulation of a large number of Western weapons, which is enough for several brigades, completely rearmed, trained, well-coordinated. After that we can advance. In terms of timing, this will most likely be the end of June— beginning of July»,— Zelenskiy's office adviser said.

According to his forecasts, the first artillery pieces will arrive in Ukraine in late May or early June. «And in order to attack— not earlier than the second half of June»,— added Arestovich.

In April, Western countries began to increase their supply of weapons to Ukraine after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked the United States to provide Ukraine with heavy weapons earlier this month because the military “does not want to receive bulletproof vests and helmets.” Arestovich, in turn, stated that during the special operation of Russia in Ukraine, almost all of its own defense industry was destroyed.

On April 21, the US announced the delivery of additional military aid to Ukraine, including 72 howitzers and 121 Phoenix Ghost tactical drones. For American howitzers, 144 thousand shells and 72 tactical vehicles for towing will also be sent to Ukraine. In addition, Kyiv will receive field equipment and spare parts. On April 22, the US State Department announced the supply of multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) and spare parts for military aircraft to Ukraine.

US President Joseph Biden announced a new aid package for Kyiv. According to him, the security assistance package is estimated at $800 million, and Washington will allocate another $500 million as direct economic support.

On April 22, the Canadian authorities also announced the transfer of heavy weapons to Kyiv after Zelensky's request. It was about several M-777 howitzers and their ammunition, as well as Carl Gustaf anti-tank grenade launchers. These howitzers are capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 30 km.

On the same day, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the transfer of 155-mm Caesar self-propelled artillery guns and Milan anti-tank missile systems to Ukraine. As the French publication Ouest-France found out, France will transfer 12 such guns, they are capable of hitting targets at a distance of 40 km.

The authorities of the Netherlands have promised to send long-range armored self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine. In Germany, they said that they are considering the possibility of supplying self-propelled guns to Kyiv. The newspaper Welt am Sonntag, citing sources in the Ukrainian ruling circles, wrote that the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) was ready to send 100 Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled howitzers to Kyiv for €1.7 billion.

The Russian authorities have a negative attitude towards the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine. The Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, called the deliveries “pumped”, expressing confidence that a significant part of the weapons in Ukraine falls into the hands of “bandits, Nazis, terrorists and criminals.” The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, considered the supply of weapons “another mousetrap”, pointing out what kind of “this junk” Ukrainian citizens will pay.

At the same time, the Kremlin is confident that the supply of weapons to Ukraine from the West does not carry risks for Moscow to achieve the goals of the special operation. “These weapons are not enough to stop our advance,” — spoke earlier the representative of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov. Russia will consider any shipments of Western weapons in Ukraine a “legitimate target”, warned Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on May 4 declared any NATO transport with weapons that arrived in Ukraine to be a legitimate target and ammunition. According to him, the United States and its NATO allies continue to “pump Ukraine with weapons.”

The Russian Ministry of Defense almost daily reports attacks on warehouses that contain foreign weapons supplied to Ukraine, as well as on electrical substations on iron the roads along which such weapons are transported.
