Two new grounds for confiscation of a car will appear in the legislation

One ​​law has been adopted, the second will be adopted in a few days

Soon, two new grounds for confiscation of vehicles will appear in Russia at once. The law on tougher administrative liability for dumping garbage and solid household waste in the wrong places has already been adopted, and the law on criminal liability for repeated driving without a license is due to be adopted next week.

The proposal to tighten article 8.2 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, which punishes non-compliance with the requirements when handling production and consumption waste, was jointly made by the Moscow City Duma and the Moscow Regional Duma in the fall of 2021. It was adopted in the second and third reading this week.

Citizens who throw garbage in the wrong place, along roads, in the forest, create unauthorized dumps, it was decided to punish the ruble more severely. Instead of the current one or two thousand rubles fine in case of capture, they will take from two to three thousand, got caught again during the year – instead of two or three thousand, they will take three to five thousand rubles …

But the main thing is not this. Article 8.2 of the Code of Administrative Offenses will be supplemented with several new paragraphs at once, specifically for those who “pollute and (or) litter” the environment not on foot, but by unloading or throwing garbage from cars or motorcycles outside specially designated places or areas. For the first time, the fine imposed on citizens will be 10-15 thousand rubles, on officials from 20 to 30 thousand rubles, on legal entities – from 30 to 50 thousand rubles. A similar violation repeated within a year doubles all fines, both minimum and maximum.

If the garbage was thrown out from trucks, trailers, tractors or other self-propelled vehicles, from 40 to 50 thousand rubles will be taken from the driver, from 60 to 80 thousand rubles from the official, from 100 to 120 thousand rubles from the legal entity. A repeated violation within a year will lead to much more serious consequences: as an additional punishment, the judge may decide to confiscate the very vehicle that became the “instrument for committing an administrative offense.”

Moreover, it will be possible to record illegal disposal of garbage using video recording, that is, special technical means operating in automatic mode, having the functions of photography and filming, or video recording.

When the law was adopted in the third reading, Oleg Mikhailov (KPRF), on behalf of the faction, expressed doubt that the new norms would help stop the dumping of garbage along roads, rivers, forests and fields. According to him, fines for “just” throwing garbage are increased only for citizens, while for officials and companies they remain the same, moreover, for the same thing, but using transport, the responsibility is much more serious, and this “gives authorized persons quite wide scope for the application of legislation at its discretion.

“The level of fines corresponds to the level of seriousness of the deed,” answered Irina Belykh, deputy head of the relevant Committee on State Building and Legislation (“ER”). She recalled that today the owner of the land plot bears full responsibility for the spontaneous dump, who must remove everything piled up at his own expense and pay a fine.

The threat of confiscation is the right measure, Oleg Nilov spoke on behalf of the “SR” . “Sometimes not everyone is ready to risk a multi-million dollar vehicle,” he believes.

With “handles” officials of environmental and forest supervision will be able to catch violators in the summer, but the use of photo and video recording has been postponed for six months. By the way, after this method of proving the guilt of a citizen starts working, the usual rule “the owner of the vehicle answers if it is not proved that he was definitely not driving” will also be applied here.

The question of whether the authorities in nature, in dense forests or fields will be able to catch vehicles with garbage using photo and video recording, was repeatedly raised during the discussion of the bill. The deputies who supported him believe that they can, if they wish. So, the deputy head of the Committee on Ecology, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Alexander Kogan (ER) told MK that we can talk not only about stationary video cameras installed along roads and fixing traffic violations. “Already today, the Ministry of Transport of the Moscow Region, for example, is installing mobile cameras and video traps during repair work or to track the flow of cars to determine the load on the highway. Plus, supervisory authorities can also use camera traps in places of unauthorized waste disposal,” he explained.

And now about the confiscation of the criminal one.

It is ready for the second reading, it can become a law next week and come into force in July, a package of two bills to tighten liability for those who were deprived of their rights, but got behind the wheel of a car again.

Now the punishment for those who seriously violated the Rules of the Road and lost their rights for a certain period is administrative: 30 thousand rubles, with an alternative in the form of compulsory work for 100-200 hours or arrest for up to 15 days. Even if a citizen falls for this violation even for the fifth time in a year, even for the twentieth, the punishment remains the same. Henceforth, for a repeated, that is, the second within a year, similar violation will be fined for 50-100 thousand rubles, or even sentenced to compulsory work for a period of 150 to 200 hours. For the second reading, the relevant committee approved an amendment by Senator Irina Rukavishnikova, who proposed depriving those punished under this article of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the right to a 50% discount if the fine was paid voluntarily within 20 days.

A third violation of this kind will already threaten a criminal case. The new article of the Criminal Code promises a minimum fine of 150-250 thousand rubles, and a maximum of up to a year in prison with a two-year ban on certain activities or holding certain positions. If a citizen who is deprived of his rights and, in addition, has an unexpunged conviction for an accident with a fatal outcome committed while intoxicated, gets behind the wheel, the fine rises to 200-300 thousand, and the term of imprisonment – up to two years. As an additional means of influence, the Criminal Code decided to prescribe the possibility of seizing, by a court verdict, “a vehicle belonging to the accused and used by him in the commission of a crime.”

Violations of this kind will be recorded only by traffic police officers, no video or cameras.

When these initiatives were discussed in the first reading, many people doubted the effectiveness of the confiscation. In nine out of ten such cases, malicious violators drive without a license in cars that do not formally belong to them, both deputies and experts said: these are cars of their relatives, friends, or those that have been bought but not yet registered.

“Here we are talking about a weapon for committing a crime, and it doesn’t matter who it belongs to – uncle, aunt or anyone else. The person who got behind the wheel used the car as a tool for committing a crime,” Vice Speaker Irina Yarovaya (ER) explained on behalf of the authors. According to her, “the court always makes decisions based on an assessment of the totality of factors” and the circumstances under which the crime was committed.

For the second reading, Alexei Kurinny (KPRF) proposed to adopt an amendment that, in his opinion, would make the confiscation rule effective: for this, he believes, it is enough to allow the confiscation of not only the vehicle belonging to the perpetrator, but also the vehicle in his use, even if it belongs to another person or organization. According to the amendment, only someone else's car, which the accused took possession of in an unlawful way – for example, stole, cannot be confiscated. But the majority of members of the relevant Committee on State Building and Legislation rejected this amendment.

But the question is how effective the new, seemingly formidable norm of the Criminal Code will be, and whether someone who gives it to a malicious malicious person will lose his car violator of traffic rules, has not gone away. One can, of course, assume that the courts will most likely be guided in such situations by the explanations that the Plenum of the Supreme Court gave a few years ago regarding the confiscation of the instrument or means of committing a crime belonging to the criminal in general. When making a decision on confiscation, the court must first establish whether the defendant owns a particular property or not, these explanations say. If the offender used property that belongs to another person or organization, then the court must find out whether the owner knew about the impending crime and the intention to use his property to commit it. If you knew – confiscation is possible …

Heroes without memory. How they forgot the exploits of people who glorified Russia

On 5 July 1701, an event occurred which, as is commonly believed, largely determined the course and even the outcome of the Northern War of 1700 — 1721 , which ended with an impressive Russian victory.

It was then, during the battle near the unfinished Novodvinsk fortress, that the Swedes' attempt to destroy Arkhangelsk on the fly, burn the shipyards of Solombala and cut off the Russians from the last sea that connected Russia with Europe was thwarted. By and large, all this was prevented by one person, whose name was unknown for a long time. In any case, in the capitals forgotten until XX century. The name is — Ivan Ryabov. Remembered the feat of the Dvina feeder only thanks to the novel Yury German“Young Russia” yes to the film of the same name by Ilya Guryin. Meanwhile, domestic history is rich in & nbsp; such stories. Ivan Ryabov was still lucky. Because many other heroes are still forgotten. Or almost forgotten. Some just oversight, and some by old order from above…

Ivan Ryabov. To stay in the song

The same Ivan Ryabov was lucky to a certain extent by chance. In & nbsp; 1943, a member of the Military Council of the Northern Fleet, Vice Admiral Alexander Nikolaev gave the military commissar TASS and an employee of the Political Directorate of the Northern Fleet Yuri German combat mission — tell the sailors about the glorious past of the Russian fleet in the North. And did a few tips. In particular, he led the correspondent to Captain Ivan Kotsov. He, like many other Arkhangelsk residents, was not only a captain, but also a connoisseur of antiquity. And by  right — in  his house, Herman saw the charter of the Tsar Ioann Vasilyevich, given to the “lodey feeder Ivashka Kotsovto  the right to go up into the Germans, and down ​​into Rus». And also a letter of Peter I, which the carpenter tsar bestowed Kuzma Kotsovawith the title of “ship leader”. In this family kept and honored the memory of the heroes — about  the feat of the feeder Ryabov to Ivan Kotsov, according to him, in childhood "old lady sang".

Can Is it possible to believe «grandmother's songs»? Herman decided that it was possible. And he built a novel around the plot “Ivan Ryabov saves the Novodvinsk fortress and” Arkhangelsk “. Anyone who has seen the film “Young Russia” must remember how it was. Feeder Ivan Ryabov with  assistant interpreter Mityaunder the guise of a fisherman accidentally captured by the Swedes, he becomes their pilot, promises to take them to Arkhangelsk, but instead, he puts the Swedish flagship and a couple more ships aground exactly in the zone of destruction of the Russian guns of the Novodvinsk fortress. The Swedes naturally get kaput, but they manage to kill Mitya. Ryabov, however, escapes and swims to  his own. The novel was published in & nbsp; 1952 & nbsp; And for almost a quarter of a century, the feat of Ivan Ryabov is brushed aside. Say, all this is cheers-patriotic fiction. But in 1975  historian Nikolai Konkovpublishes the  New Document on the Battle of Novodvinsk on June 25, 1701”, which he found in the archive. The document is called “Questioning Dvina bean Ivan Yermolinson of Sedunov. It clearly follows from this document that Ivashka Sedunov, nicknamed Ryab or Ryabov, and also his interpreter Mitka Popov really did what   , there was such an idea that to introduce thieves' ships into the mouth and & nbsp; run aground. And brought de on, Ivashko, those the above-mentioned thieves' Svei two frigates and a yacht with military people from the sea into the Dvina Estuary, where the builder of the fortress, and half a mile away, those frigates and a yacht stranded … Tolmach de Mitka Popov, who was full of with them, was killed by shotguns from fuses, and he de, Ivashka, was wounded by shot not to death, and he, Ivashka, with  ship, rushing into the water, swam to the shore … & raquo;

Ivan Moshkin. Hero of Europe

In the XVII century                        there was often written about Russians in the European press. It is even generally accepted that the first domestic media person was the “daring Cossack Stenka Razin”, whose uprising was trumpeted by German and Dutch newspapers for several years.

In fact, there was one person who, thirty years before Razin, got into the European media top. And how you got — nice to see! True, the name of the hero is traditionally misrepresented — in "sheets" and  brochures of the Italian Grignaniprinting house call him Simonović. Although in reality it is Ivan Semyonovich Moshkin, a Russian archer of the notch line.

In 1634 he, being in the steppe watch», gets captured by Crimean Tatars. They sell it to Turkey, where Ivan becomes a galley rower. Or rather, on Galeas — this is a class of rowing and sailing ships. Galleas — ships are spacious. The one on which slave Moshkin pulled his strap consisted of 250 people of the Turkish team and troops, and also 280 slaves on oars. Of these slaves, 210 came from Russian regions, and only 70 — from other European countries. This ratio gives some idea of ​​the Crimean misfortune that tormented Russia in those years…

Moshkin turned out to be a man not only persistent, but also adventurous. He manages to put together a conspiracy of slaves, and even involve several slaves close to the captain. In general, in one fine night, a Russian archer blows up part of the ship, and after a bloody battle, out of 250 people of the Turkish team, only 40 remain alive.

Next — some fantasy. A quick passage from the  Marmara to the Mediterranean, the capture of another Turkish ship and, finally, the arrival in the Sicilian port of Messina. Spain then owned Sicily, the Spanish king, informed of such a case, comes to & nbsp; delighted. The Ottoman fleet was such a scourge for the Mediterranean as the Crimean Tatars — for the southern Russian steppes. Capture a huge Turkish ship with 17 cannons, 250 muskets, 200 kg of silver, 20 banners and 500 sets of military uniforms — it's from the  series  it doesn't happen that way . And already if it was done by the slaves, then in general, the guard.

Moshkin and his comrades are offered to serve the Spanish king. The Russians refuse — they want to go home. Similar proposals were received twice more — from Austrian Emperor and Polish King. Moreover, the price of remuneration for service was constantly growing — the hype around the “Russian heroes”, raised by the European press, did its job. However, the Russians returned home. True, here a cool welcome awaited them. I had to forget about & nbsp; rich gifts and & nbsp; awards. The main character, Ivan Moshkin, was again accepted into the & nbsp; archers with a salary of & nbsp; two altyns. Yes and then not immediate — it turned out that the archer, after seven years of Muslim captivity, thirsting for communion, did this directly with the Pope. What followed the royal decree — before accepting him into the service again, “send him under the command to” the patriarch for correction, in order to receive the sacrament from the “pope.”

Alexander Osterman-Tolstoy. Tsarist pettiness

He began his service under Catherine the Great, under the banner of Suvorov — for assaulting Izmail Alexander Ivanovichreceived the Order of St. George of the fourth degree, and & nbsp; after all, he was then only 18 & nbsp; years old. Courage on the battlefield was very well combined with wit and causticity. So, when  he, retired from service, volunteered in the terrible year for Russia in 1812, the general of Italian origin Pauluccispoke in the meaning that Osterman had not donned a uniform for a long time and not  ; might be useful. To it he received the answer: «For you Russia — uniform, you put it on and take it off whenever you want. For me, Russia — my skin».

In the  terrible battle near Ostrovno, when it depended on the stamina of his corps, the armies of Barclayand Bagrationor not, then the fate of the entire war was at stake, Osterman, in response to a question about what to do, calmly said: "Nothing. Stand and die».

In the Battle of Kulm in 1813, his combined detachment decided the fate of the entire battle. However, the general's left arm was almost torn off by a cannonball. When he came to themselves then choosed the surgeon who will do the amputation: "I like your physiognomy, cut". When the operation was over, the count said: “It is very pleasant to be wounded for” the Fatherland, and “as for the left hand, then” I have the right one, which I need for the sign of the cross, a sign of faith in God, on which I rely all my hope.”

And in 1828, the count, dismissed on an indefinite leave, but listed in the service, will once again offer his services to the Russian Emperor. In that year, another war with Turkey will begin. But on this time he will be rejected.  what's the matter? In the pettiness of Nicholas I. Several participants in the Decembrist uprising fled from persecution in the count's house. Plus, he still had the audacity to ask for his relatives and friends. 

Alexander Osterman-Tolstoy will leave Russia. Forever and ever. He will refuse to come even to the anniversary of the Battle of Kulm. Nikolai's beautiful gesture — the emperor will award Osterman with the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called, the highest order of the empire…

The ribbon and star of this order, sent in a sealed package, will remain in         The Count will not touch this award until his death.

Spiegel learned about Lithuania’s reaction to the EU decision on transit to Kaliningrad

Lithuania reacted negatively to the decision of the European Commission to allow Moscow to use transit for all goods to Kaliningrad, contrary to its opinion, Der Spiegel reports, citing sources in the Lithuanian government.

In the coming days, the European Commission should publish the final clarification on this matter, the magazine writes. The document will spell out the right of Moscow to transport goods subject to sanctions to Kaliningrad, but only in the amount that was delivered there before the start of the special military operation in Ukraine.

“In Vilnius, this is regarded as a defeat. <…> We didn't change our position, — a Lithuanian government source told Der Spiegel. According to him, in particular Lithuania is outraged by the position of the German authorities, which “since June 18 has been putting pressure on the European Commission so that Kaliningrad is excluded from sanctions.”

The day before, the magazine wrote that the German authorities demand that Kaliningrad be excluded from sanctions, as they believe that a ban on transit could lead to an escalation of the conflict. According to him, the European Commission is going to publish its decision on July 10. At the same time, there is still no agreement with the Lithuanian government on this issue, the publication pointed out.

Lithuania has banned the transit of goods subject to European sanctions to the Kaliningrad region and from it to other Russian regions by rail. The restriction applies to iron and steel products, products for use in the aviation and space industries, perfumes, porcelain and other ceramics, household appliances worth more than €750, thoroughbred horses, truffles, cigars and other goods.

In the Kremlin the decision of the Lithuanian authorities was considered illegal. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov urged to “prepare for the worst” in resolving this conflict. Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Moscow was working on a response to “hostile actions.” At the end of June, he confirmed that the Kremlin was waiting for the decision of the European Commission on goods prohibited for transit.

The authorities of Uzbekistan announced an attempt to seize power by protesters

Protests took place in the capital of Karakalpakstan on July 1 over draft amendments to the Constitution that would remove the clause on the right to secede from Uzbekistan. Protest organizers detained authorities protesting” />

The authorities of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, which is part of Uzbekistan, detained the organizers of the protests that took place in its capital the day before— city ​​of Nukus. This is stated in a joint statement by Jokargy Kenes (parliament), the Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Karakalpakstan.

The statement says that the organizers of the riots, “hiding behind populist slogans, manipulating the consciousness and trust of citizens,” gathered people in the city square, where the administrative buildings are located. The rally participants tried to seize the state administration, “despite the policy of openness and free will pursued by the Republic of Uzbekistan.” Law enforcement agencies stopped the “illegal actions of the instigators”.


The parliament, the government and the Ministry of Internal Affairs stressed that the state has “the necessary potential to prevent further loosening of the situation,” and all “provocateurs” will be found and held accountable.

The statement also notes attempts by external forces to influence the situation in Karakalpakstan “through targeted information releases and distortion of ongoing events.”

The reason for the protests in Nukus was the draft of the new Constitution of the country. The changes involve the exclusion from the Basic Law of the provisions on the sovereignty of Karakalpakstan and the right of its people to secede based on the results of a general referendum. The Ministry of Internal Affairs explained that the protesters misinterpreted the essence of the constitutional reform.

In 1930, the Kara-Kalpak Autonomous Region was withdrawn from the Kazakh ASSR and transferred to the RSFSR. In 1936-1990, the Karakalpak ASSR was part of the Uzbek SSR. In December 1990, the Parliament of the Autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan adopted a declaration on state sovereignty, and in 1993 an agreement was signed on the entry of Karakalpakstan into Uzbekistan for 20 years with the right to secede from the republic after a referendum.

Amendments to the Constitution of Uzbekistan were submitted for public discussion on June 26. Prior to this, the draft was approved in the first reading by the legislative chamber of the country's parliament. It is proposed to make more than 170 amendments to 66 articles of the Constitution— in particular, to increase the presidential term from five to seven years. In addition, norms will be introduced into the law, according to which all irreconcilable contradictions in relations between a citizen and state bodies will be interpreted in favor of a person.

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev also proposed to introduce a provision on the prohibition of the death penalty into the Constitution, which has been canceled in the republic since 2008.

Israel criticized the words of the Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Melnyk about Bandera

Melnyk called the Ukrainian nationalist leader a “freedom fighter”. The Israeli embassy in Germany announced an insult to the memory of the victims of Bandera and a distortion of historical facts jpg” alt=”The words of Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Melnyk about Bandera were criticized in Israel” />

Andriy Melnyk

Statements of Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk about nationalist Stepan Bandera “distort historical facts, diminish the significance of the Holocaust and insult memory of those killed by Bandera and his people,” the Israeli embassy in Germany said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Melnyk, in an interview published in late June with German journalist Til Jung, said that he visited Bandera's grave in Munich “because he is important to so many Ukrainians as the personification of the struggle for freedom.” “A freedom fighter is not subject to any laws. Robin Hood is revered by all of us, but he also did not act according to the laws,— Melnik said.

Stepan Bandera— one of the leaders of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN, recognized as extremist in Russia and banned), as well as one of the initiators of the creation of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA, also recognized as extremist and banned). Bandera, after the German invasion of Poland, collaborated for some time with German military intelligence, and after disagreements with the Nazis, he was arrested by the image. He was imprisoned in Berlin, and after his release he moved to Munich, where he was killed by a KGB agent in 1959.

In Ukraine, torchlight processions in honor of Bandera are regularly held. Former President Viktor Yushchenko conferred on him the title of Hero of Ukraine in 2010, which the nationalist was subsequently stripped of by Yushchenko's successor Viktor Yanukovych.

The Israeli embassy believes that the diplomat's words “undermine the efforts of the Ukrainian people to live in accordance with democratic values ​​in the world.

A representative of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Oleg Nikolenko, after the words of Melnyk, said that this is the personal opinion of the ambassador, which does not reflect the position of the department.
