“The schedule is to fulfill. You have already 200 thousand square meters of housing, while the kindergarten is still not working, the school has not been introduced. I don’t care about your schedules: if you rent housing and tenants and children appear, you must provide all this with the necessary social and cultural facilities. Now people are forced to go nowhere, to overcrowded schools. If this practice continues, you will not build in Moscow, understand? Speed up,” said Sobyanin.

The media note that the PEAK still has to pass the road to school.

The developer promised to deliver the school on time.

After the threats of the mayor of the capital, the shares of “PEAK” went into negative territory and lost 1.05%. Before that, they grew by 3%.

As Topnews wrote earlier, in mid–October, Sergei Sobyanin announced the end of mobilization in Moscow – the search for evaders was stopped.

“It will hurt us very much”: InoSMI told about “Putin's new weapon

The American media said that energy weapons are being created in Russia – more powerful than nuclear weapons.

Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to use a new weapon by Christmas.

According to The New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, this weapon is “ more powerful than nuclear”, and it is an energy bomb.

The journalist believes that “the assembly of ” this weapon is being carried out these days.

Friedman calls it an oil and gas bomb, which Putin, according to the observer, uses in front of the West.

“It will be very painful for us”, – Friedman is sure.

He believes that if these weapons are used, fuel prices will soar into the stratosphere.

The journalist explains that in December Putin may stop the export of Russian fuel for 30 or 60 days.

This, in turn, will raise oil prices to $200 per barrel.

However, the West is torn apart by contradictions on the issue in the gas sector: it wants to leave the economy without hydrocarbons, but at the same time demands low oil prices.

“It will be Putin’s energy bomb and a Christmas gift to the West ”, – adds the journalist.

Earlier, topNews wrote that the media wrote about the possibility of Russia testing nuclear weapons in the Black Sea.

It was reported that weapons were being moved to the Ukrainian borders.

The government may abolish Rusnano

The government may abolish Rusnano

The media analyzed the reasons that could lead to such a decision.

The Russian government is discussing the possibility of disbanding Rusnano.

According to Vedomosti, citing three sources familiar with the situation, the institute has a lot of financial problems that have become more serious after the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions.

Now the state corporation can’t actually serve itself, so the authorities have thought about the expediency of its existence.

In an address to the head of the country Vladimir Putin, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov explained that the support of the organization at the expense of budgetary funds in the current situation creates difficulties. At the same time, it is proposed to preserve the part of the portfolio that is important for the technological development of Russia, and to realize the rest of the assets.

But bankruptcy is one option, the second may be the clearing of Rusnano’s balance sheet, which is already underway. At the same time, it remains as a center for the development of innovation competencies, since the accumulated experience can help in import substitution. the interlocutors say.

Insiders report that now the decision on the fate of Rusnano depends on the President of the Russian Federation and has not yet been finally made.

As a source in the Ministry of Finance explained to the media, the corporation and the new board of directors are being monitored to ensure that all state guarantees taken in the past are fulfilled.

Representatives of Rusnano stated that when considering innovations as a mandatory source of income in the future, it contradicts the principle of venture investment, which is why the state corporation had to resort to complex schemes and manipulations with reporting.

So the management avoided both the recognition of mistakes, but also the responsibility for them of specific persons. Now the debt burden is being repaid, and the proceeds from the Rusnano portfolio amounted to 14.5 billion rubles from January to September. The total amount of receipts from 2021 goals amounted to 52 billion rubles, which is half the value of the historical portfolio.

Rusnano’s debt, according to the source, has been reduced by 33 billion rubles over the past two years, and the remaining 44 billion rubles will be paid by 2024. Over 70 billion rubles have been attracted as investments, he said. According to the company, at the moment Rusnano owes 116 billion rubles.

For development, the company suggests changing the specialization of activities, attracting private capital and reducing the share of state participation (no more than 25%).

In order to ensure the technological direction of the country’s economy, it is proposed to attract sustainable development institutions, prospective customers and consumers of innovative products created as shareholders.

Recall that Rusnano was established in 2007 as a state-owned company for the development of nanotechnology.  From the beginning to December 2020, it was headed by Anatoly Chubais. Rusnano’s problems were first discussed publicly in November 2021.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that in April of this year, the new head of Rusnano, Sergey Kulikov, appealed to the Prosecutor General’s Office with a request to audit the work of the state corporation under the previous leadership.
