 Expert: sanctions war against Lukashenko may hit Poland unexpectedly

The persecution of the Belarusian leader may lead to sad consequences for other countries.Energy expert and political scientist Boris Martsinkevich explained that the restrictive measures imposed on Belarus by the United Kingdom and the European Union are imprudent, because they can hit completely different countries.

He recalled that the Western sanctions have switched from the Nord Stream 2 to the Yamal-Europe pipeline project passing through the Belarusian territory.

The geopolitical opponents of the republic considered it a good target to punish Minsk and Lukashenko.

As a result, there were calls from them not to buy gas going to Yamal.

On his YouTube channel, Martsinevich explained that these measures are not able to harm Minsk, since the gas pipeline was bought by Gazprom.

But the sanctions may hit Poland, which receives funds from the Russian Federation for the transit of gas through its territory, namely in Yamal.

It turns out that it will not be possible to punish Lukashenko with a ruble.

“If this initiative is considered seriously, it is proposed to punish Poland & #8221;, ― the analyst believes.

According to him, the official Warsaw will be under attack because of the sanctions, which will receive less Russian transit funds if Europe stops buying transit gas.

Curiously, but earlier, as reported by Topnews, it was Poland that put forward an ultimatum to Germany on the Nord Stream 2.

Warsaw, recall, said that it needs a multibillion-dollar compensation.

 FNPR asks the country's leadership to intervene in the situation with the indexation of pensions for working pensioners

Mikhail Shmakova said the situation was unfair.

The head of the Russian Federation of Independent Trade Unions, Mikhail Shmakov, published an open letter addressed to the authorities regarding the situation with the indexation of pensions for working pensioners.

The document appeared on the FNPR website on the eve of June 7.

In it, Shmakov declares the need to eliminate the injustice that was committed earlier.

We are talking about restoring the indexation of pensions to those recipients of payments who still prefer to work.

& # 8220;It is necessary & #8230; to return & # 8230; fair formation of pension rights”, & #8211; quotes him TASS.

The head of the FNPR also clarified that the restriction on points should be excluded from the current legislation.

In his opinion, the Russian government has not yet approved any of the laws submitted by the deputies that could correct the situation. At the same time, the country’s governing body did not provide its own version of the project.

Recall that back in January of this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to develop proposals on the issue of indexation of pensions for this category of Russians by February 1.

According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the government has presented a polyvariate vision to the head of state, but the final solution to the issue will be proposed later.

It is known that the indexation of pensions to working Russians was suspended on January 1, 2016 to reduce the deficit of the FIU.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the State Duma responded to the proposal of the deputy Vitaly Milonov to deprive the pensions of Russians working as collectors.

 & ldquo;Madness”: Deripaska assessed the strengthening of the ruble by the Central Bank

The billionaire described the prospect of a decision to increase the key rate.

Russian billionaire businessman Oleg Deripaska in a social network shared his opinion on what the Central Bank’s maneuver to raise the key rate to 5.5% could lead to.

He explained that such a decision will lead to a further strengthening of the ruble.

According to the entrepreneur, the position of lobbyists of stock exchange speculation based on the difference in interest rates in different world powers, was much stronger than the interests of ordinary Russians.

He called the process of raising the key rate“madness & #8221;.

Recall that the growth to 5.5% was announced on June 11. The central bank announced that it is raising the rate for the second time by another 0.5%.

Tax authorities will start checking bank cards of Russians from July 1

 Tax authorities will start checking bank cards of Russians from July 1

You will need to prove that the funds received are not income.

In Russia, from July 1, the implementation of the project “People – new oil” will begin, in which the tax service will check the bank cards of Russians.

From July 1, the tax monitoring of the receipt of funds to the cards will begin.

According to Ilya Grashchenkov, a political scientist, in an interview with Rosbalt, according to the amendments to the Tax Code, all banks will provide tax authorities with data on the movement of money in the accounts and cards of citizens.

At the request of the law, the tax service can request from banking institutions in Russia, statements on all monetary transactions of both individuals and legal entities, certificates of accounts, deposits, certificates of electronic monetary transactions.

The banks are given three days to do this after the request of the Federal Tax Service.

Citizens will have to explain where the financial resources came from.

So, the tax authorities, if they can not find a source of income of financial resources, then they will consider the profit that should be taxed. If a person fails to prove that the funds received are not income, then he will have to pay a fine of 20%, as well as a fine.

Experts believe that this way the Russians will be able to get used to tax liability. The same thing happens in the United States, where large purchases are monitored and compared with the income of citizens.

As Topnews wrote earlier, Sberbank told about a Russian citizen who gave 400 million rubles from her accounts to fraudsters.

The attackers arrived at her home and were able to convince her that the money should be “secured”.


Media: fraudsters from Russia and China stole $400 billion in benefits from the United States

 Media: fraudsters from Russia and China stole $400 billion in benefits from the US

Personal data is tricked or threatened from citizens.

The American authorities are faced with a problem that “passed” from the previous administration. This was confirmed by a source in the administration of US President Joe Biden.

According to him, fraud with state unemployment payments is widespread in America.

The publication Axios reported the amount of & #8211; $400 billion – exactly the size of all the benefits issued, which could end up in the hands of fraudsters.

This is half of all the unemployment benefits that the authorities began to pay during the pandemic during 2020.

It turned out that scammers often used the stolen data of Americans. According to RBC, personal data was often taken from citizens by threats or fraud.

They were used to apply for benefits, and later the money (often in the form of cryptocurrency) was transferred abroad.

Experts say that up to 70% of the funds received were withdrawn from the United States. The money could have fallen into the hands of scammers from Nigeria, China, Russia, etc.

“These groups are definitely supported by the state,” the analysts said.

Another third of the money went into the pockets of American street gangs.

The White House is aware of the fraud, but earlier it was decided to start issuing benefits without finding fault with the documents. But the fact that the money went abroad made the problem a matter of national security.

How exactly the US authorities will solve it, it is not reported.

As Topnews wrote earlier, the Russians were told about a new type of fraud. Now the attackers pretend to call from law enforcement agencies. And even the phone number looks realistic.
