The Foreign Ministry allowed the expansion of the combat zone due to the supply of weapons to Kyiv

As long-range weapons are supplied to Ukraine, the “geographical tasks” of the military operation will expand, the Foreign Ministry said. The department believes that the country should not have weapons that pose a threat to Russia, the DPR and the LPR .webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/800xH/media/img/4/88/756603797292884.webp 800w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 400px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 400px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/1200xH/media/img/4/88/756603797292884.webp 1200w" type="image/webp" media="(-webkit-min-device -pixel-ratio: 2), (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >

The supply of long-range weapons to Ukraine will lead to the fact that “the geographical objectives of the [Russian] special operation will be pushed even further,” said Alexander Darchiev, director of the North American Department of the Foreign Ministry, in an interview with TASS.

According to the diplomat, Moscow should not allow weapons on the territory of Ukraine that pose a direct threat to Russia, the Donetsk and Lugansk people's republics, as well as the “liberated regions”. According to the Ministry of Defense, the Russian military controls the Kherson region and most of the Zaporozhye region, including the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant located in the region.

“As for the correlation of massive deliveries of Western weapons to Kyiv with the course and timing of the special military operation, then it was clearly outlined by [Foreign Minister] Sergei Lavrov, — Darchiev added.

Lavrov said in mid-July that the geographic objectives of the Russian operation now include “far from only the DPR and LPR,” but also the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions and a number of other territories. According to the minister, their further expansion will depend on the supply of “increasingly long-range weapons” by Western countries to Kyiv.

The Russian military operation has been going on since February 24, when the authorities called its goals the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine and the protection of the inhabitants of Donbass from “genocide”, assuring that they were not going to occupy the country. Kyiv responded by declaring martial law, began mobilizing and severed diplomatic relations with Moscow.

In mid-April, Lavrov announced the start of the next phase of hostilities, which is aimed at the “complete liberation” of DPR and LPR (the Ministry of Defense reported on the complete capture of the latter under the control of the Russian military in early July). Then the deputy commander of the Central Military District for military-political work, Major General Rustam Minnekaev, said that Russia was going to establish full control not only over the Donbass, but also in southern Ukraine in order to secure another corridor to Transnistria.

After the beginning of the conflict, Western countries stepped up the supply of weapons to Kyiv. In particular, Ukraine received 16 HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) from the United States, in total the Pentagon promised more than 20 such systems. The UK also supplies the Ukrainian side with MLRS. Among other weapons sent to the country, & mdash; Javelin and NLAW anti-tank systems, Stinger anti-aircraft systems, Starstreak MANPADS and others. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that due to additional supplies there is an opportunity for a “tipping point” in conflict.

The Parliament of Kazakhstan called Russia an “unreliable partner” and plan to redirect oil around the Russian Federation

Kazakhstan has figured out how to redirect oil around Russia.

In Kazakhstan, local politicians are discussing the diversification of their oil transit to bypass Russia.

In his interview for “Moscow Speaks” Deputy of the Kazakh Mazhilis Aidos Sarym called the Russian Federation “not the most reliable partner”.

According to him, the Caspian Pipeline Consortium regularly encounters technical difficulties.

This forces the republic to conduct search for new oil supply routes, including through the territories of China, Iran, Azerbaijan and Turkey.

Sarym considers the actions of Kazakhstan “normal and honest business”, which is not connected with geopolitics.

p>

“As the events taking place in the country and the world show, Russia is not a completely reliable partner”, – he said.

The deputy noted that Kazakhstan “forces to strain” the accident at the CPC and other situations.

Against this background, it became known that the Kazakh authorities have already found a way to redistribute oil supplies bypassing Russia, but so far Kazakhstan can redirect only 8% of oil to an expert.

According to a Reuters source, “Kazmunaigas” managed to reach an agreement with the Kazakh oil company SOCAR for the supply of 1.5 million tons of oil annually via the Baku route – Tbilisi – Ceyhan (Turkey). This volume will amount to 30,000 barrels per day.

In addition, from 2023, another overpass of Azerbaijan, the Western Route Export Pipeline, will supply about 70,000 barrels per day to the Georgian port of Supsa.

Previously TopNews wrote that Kazakhstan refused to recognize the DPR and LPR.

The country's authorities called the republics “quasi-states”.

Virologist warned about the danger of combining COVID-19 with other infections

Doctors fear a possible combination of coronavirus with influenza or adenovirus. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to Elena Malinnikova, head of the Department of Virology at the Russian Medical Academy of Continuing Professional Education.

Vaccination is the main way to prevent diseases, the virologist recalled. Booster vaccinations against coronavirus make it easier to endure the disease and not even get sick, Malinnikova said.

As the specialist noted, today the new COVID-19 mutates daily. However, people tolerate it easily.

Today, Deputy Director of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor Natalya Pshenichnaya said that it is not necessary to introduce coronavirus restrictions at the federal level at the present time, since the situation is not critical.

Earlier it was reported that the Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after N.F. Gamalei has developed a vaccine against three types of “omicron”.

The Rhine dried up due to the heat and became unsuitable for navigation

The water level in the Rhine continues to decline – near Frankfurt it fell below the mark of 40 cm, according to The Guardian. 

In such conditions, navigation on the river became impossible, which leads&nbsp ;to interruptions in the supply of coal, fuel, grain by water, and this exacerbates the economic crisis in Europe.

The newspaper notes that it is very problematic to replace river transportation with land transportation, since on average a ship can take on board about 1 thousand tons of cargo, and about 40 trucks can transport such a volume by land.

It is noted that the water level in the Rhine, which has already become critically low, may fall by another 10-15 cm.

p>

Earlier it was reported that July in Europe turned out to be one of the driest and hottest in history.

In addition, due to the heat, more than a hundred French cities were left without drinking water. The country's authorities have created an interagency group to combat the worst drought in history.

Honored Pilot of the Russian Federation praised the idea of ​​replacing the co-pilot with a virtual one

The initiative of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation to replace the co-pilot with a virtual one is a “good direction”. The implementation of this idea will contribute to the automation of the control system to such an extent that the aircraft will be able to fly independently, taking into account meteorological conditions, air traffic and other parameters.

RT was told about this by Honored Military Pilot of Russia, Candidate of Technical Sciences Vladimir Popov, commenting on the plans of the department to refuse the services of a co-pilot.

In his opinion, the creation of appropriate software “in some way will make life and work of the pilot easier.”

At the same time, Popov noted that that at the initial stage, automation will require a lot of time and control capabilities. He also added that a person will maintain a more reliable degree of adequacy compared to a machine.

Earlier, from the tender in the Unified Procurement Information System, it became known about the plans of the Ministry of Industry and Trade to create a virtual co-pilot by the end of 2024. This will make it possible to switch to single-member crews in the 2030s.

China has created the world’s most powerful magnet for scientific research

China has created the world's most powerful magnet for scientific research. It is capable of generating a 45.2 Tesla field – this is a million times larger than the Earth's field, according to 3Dnews.

A powerful magnet is needed for research in various fields, such as chemistry, biology, semiconductor production.

The most powerful magnet was previously created in United States in 1999. Its power was 45 Tesla. The record stood for 23 years. Scientists from China were able to surpass this achievement. The facility is intended for scientific experiments, unlike the American magnet, which was not created for this purpose, but simply for proof of concept.

The magnetic field is generated by an “object” that is only 33 millimeters in diameter. The force is strong enough to, for example, lift an aircraft carrier.

It was previously reported that the unique underground hydroelectric power station Nant de Drance, located at a depth of 600 meters, was built in Switzerland. It is located between two reservoirs and operates only at a time when it is beneficial for consumers.

Biologist commented on the death of children after treatment with Zolgensma

The death of two children while taking the drug “Zolgensma”, used to treat spinal muscular atrophy, could have occurred due to inflammation of the liver. Ancha Baranova, Doctor of Biological Sciences, expressed this opinion in her Telegram channel.

«Both treated children died not immediately after the administration of the drug, but a few weeks after it– as soon as they began to reduce dose of mandatory immunosuppression, – Baranova noted.

She explained that death could be caused by overreaction of organisms to the AAV9 component, which underlies "Zolgensma". The biologist also believes that the death of children could have been avoided if doctors had carried out genotyping. According to Baranova, the process of determining the genotype would allow predicting the body's response to the introduction of an expensive drug.

The day before, the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis announced that it would update the instructions for using the drug for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy Zolgensma after the death of two children. The company clarified that acute liver failure is a known side effect.

Lithuania called for a ban on the entry of Russians on Schengen visas throughout the EU

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry believes that restrictions on entry into the EU for Russians will be more effective if they are introduced at the community level. In Germany, they doubted this possibility, the European Commission noted that such a ban is not provided for by the rules type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Lithuania appreciates Estonia's decision to ban Russians who have Estonian Schengen visas from entering the country, but believes that the measure would be more effective if it were introduced throughout the European Union. The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs told BNS about this.

Lithuania “takes the position that restrictions work more effectively if they are applied at the EU level,” the ministry said.

The need to make a decision to stop issuing Schengen tourist visas to Russian citizens at the level of the European Union was also announced by Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins, reports Delfi. A few weeks ago, this proposal was voiced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, Edgars Rinkevics.

The Czech Republic is also in favor of a ban on the issuance of Schengen visas to Russian citizens at the EU level. Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said that he intends to discuss this issue at a meeting of the heads of foreign affairs departments of the countries of the association at the end of August.

After the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, all these countries, as well as the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Slovakia, limited or stopped issuing certain types of entry documents for Russians. For example, the Czech Republic refused to issue visas and residence permits to Russians until the end of March 2023, making an exception for trips for humanitarian purposes.

On August 11, Estonia announced that it would close its borders to Russian citizens with Estonia-issued Schengen visas in a week, with a few exceptions, such as diplomats, EU free-travelers and those with relatives in the country. On the same day, the Saeima of Latvia recognized Russia as a sponsor of terrorism and called on EU countries to stop issuing Schengen tourist visas to Russians and Belarusians.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz doubts that the European Union will completely stop issuing visas to Russian citizens. The European Commission emphasizes that the EU visa code does not provide for a complete ban on the issuance of short-term visas, including to Russians. There are categories of persons to whom they need to be issued, for example, family members, journalists, dissidents, the EC points out. At the same time, the countries of the union can independently make decisions regarding a particular visa application.

The fact that Western countries should ban all Russians from entering their territory was stated by the President of Ukraine in an interview with The Washington Post in early August Vladimir Zelensky. He said at the time that states should force all Russians to return to Russia and “live in their own world until [they] change their philosophy,” calling it “the only way to influence Putin.” and stop the fighting. The day before, in his nightly video message, Zelensky clarified that the call for visa restrictions does not apply to Russians who are persecuted at home, offering to give them refugee status.

Podolyak compared negotiations with Russia with the defeat of Europe

Zelensky's office: negotiations with Russia at the current stage will mean the defeat of Ukraine The beginning of a peaceful dialogue with Russia at the current stage will fix the defeat of Ukraine and Europe, now Kyiv has “no motives” for negotiations, Podolyak believes< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/1010xH/media/img/5/11/756603890792115.webp 1010w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 640px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 640px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >

Mikhail Podolyak

Kyiv now has “no motives” conduct peaceful negotiations with Moscow, Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said in an interview with Babel.ua.

“Negotiations with Russia today will only mean one thing” that Russia has won… Are you ready to go for it? The price that Ukraine is now paying is much higher than the possibility of a ceasefire,— he thinks.

According to Podolyak, the intensity of the fighting and the possibility of winning for Ukraine is more important than “some kind of situational pause”, and the beginning of a dialogue in the current conditions will fix the defeat of Ukraine and Europe, after which “the fall of the entire global security system and the system of democratic values” will begin.< /p>

The adviser to the head of the presidential office is convinced that even if the negotiations result in fixing a new line of demarcation, after some time Moscow will again declare the need for hostilities.

Russia has been conducting a military operation in Ukraine since February 24. Since then, the delegations of Moscow and Kyiv have held several rounds of negotiations in person and in video format. The last face-to-face meeting took place at the end of March in Istanbul. In mid-May, peace talks were suspended, the Ukrainian side explained this by a change in the “emotional background”; after the events in Bucha (Moscow claims that reports of the death of civilians in the city, which was controlled by the Russian military, are fake).

According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the Russian side is ready to resume dialogue, “because everyone knows that any hostilities end at the negotiating table.” However, according to Dmitry Polyansky, Russian Deputy Representative to the UN, Kyiv does not show that it is disposed towards this. On August 3, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, following a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, said that the Kremlin would like to find a way out of the situation through negotiations, it will not be possible to resolve the conflict without dialogue.

< p>The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Dmitry Kuleba, said in mid-July that negotiations with Russia are possible only after Ukraine wins on the battlefield, since “negotiations are directly tied to the situation at the front.” Later, President Volodymyr Zelensky warned that if referendums were held in the southern regions of the country occupied by Russian forces (Kherson and part of the Zaporozhye region), as the civil-military administrations established there are talking about, this would close “any possibility of negotiations” for Moscow; with Kyiv.

In the Kremlin, responding to Zelensky’s words, they emphasize that it is not Russia that is going to hold possible referendums, these are the plans of the inhabitants of the regions. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry insists that Ukraine, when returning to negotiations, must recognize the “existing territorial realities”, including the status of Crimea and the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.

Zakharova did not see the reasons and logic in the expulsion of a diplomat from Montenegro

The day before, Montenegro declared a Russian diplomat persona non grata. The authorities referred to Article 9 of the Vienna Convention: it states that diplomats can be expelled without explanation .webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Maria Zakharova

There are no reasons or logic in the decision of the Montenegrin authorities to expel a diplomatic employee of the Russian embassy, ​​said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

“We consider the attack of the Montenegrin authorities as another episode of the hybrid campaign unleashed by the West and its satellites against Russia,” — the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Zakharova linked the decision to expel the diplomat to the unwillingness and inability of the Montenegrin authorities to “depart from the policy of mechanically following such a destructive line”; to the detriment of international security and cooperation, as well as our own national interests.

The Russian authorities reserve the right to retaliate, she added.

On the eve of the decision to declare a Russian diplomat persona non grata, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Montenegro announced. They cited Article 9 of the Vienna Convention as justification. The diplomat must leave the country within seven days, the corresponding note was handed to the Russian Ambassador to Montenegro Vladislav Maslennikov.

Article 9 of the Vienna Convention states that any country has the right, without giving reasons, to notify a foreign state that the head of its diplomatic mission or any other employee is persona non grata.

In the same month, the Montenegrin Foreign Ministry issued a statement about the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia, the post was later deleted, and the ministry apologized and explained that the message was published by mistake.

A new wave of expulsions of Russian diplomats by Western countries and the subsequent mirror measures of Moscow began in the spring, after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine.
