Hackers Fancy Bear can be involved in the attempted hacking of the servers of the party of Angela Merkel and to the attacks of the party of the Bundestag. The German authorities stated that these attempts failed to prevent

In 2016 Germany have prevented two hacker attacks, which, in the opinion of the authorities, took hackers from the group Fancy Bear. In an interview with Reuters said the President of the Federal office for information security Arne Senbon.

According to him, in may last year, hackers tried to hack the servers of the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Christian democratic Union) in the Baltic region.

A couple months later there was an attempted hacking of the servers of the party of the Bundestag by “phishing.” Experts said that the attack of the hackers used the domain name of NATO, to try to implant malicious software.

“Germany is still at risk in cyberspace, because we have digitized a lot of data,” — said Senbon.

He explained that the Agency, which he heads, is doing everything possible to strengthen the defense of Germany against such attacks: monitors government networks and tells politicians how to protect themselves from cyber attacks.

“We give them [the politicians] advice and help to take certain measures. But in the end, each party is responsible [for their actions],” said the German politician.

During the election campaign in the United States Fancy Bear also was accused of hacking the servers of the national Committee of the US Democratic party and obtaining the data about Hillary Clinton. Now in the US there is an investigation about the “intervention” of Russia in the American elections, the reason for which steel, including the publication of documents of the democratic party.

After the elections, which took place in the United States, the authorities warned that Moscow could influence the elections in France and Germany. In early December, the German government said the growth of “aggressive cyber-espionage” on the part of Russia. According to the head of the Federal service for the protection of the Constitution (BfV), Germany Hans-Georg Maasen, these operations on the part of Russia “pose a threat to members of the government, the Parliament and the democratic parties of Germany.” BfV has warned that it expects further action including group Fancy Bear.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the possibility of interference in the election process in other countries and the involvement of Russian hackers for cyber attacks.

The Ministry is discussing with the authorities the extension of the zero rate of severance tax on the extraction of tin and removing the tax burden from the extraction of rare earth metals. For Russia’s only producer of tin — company “Rosolova” is able to complete the modernization of its processing plants

The Ministry of industry and trade in materials to the Board, held on March 24, announced that it is working to zero tax on extraction of tin and ores of rare metals.

“Conciliation is working with interested Federal bodies of Executive power”, — stated in the certificate prepared by the Ministry of industry and trade and is available to RBC.

Met in the manufacture of tin zeroed back in 2013 to promote the release of this metal has still not recovered to the level of 1980-ies. In 2016 “Rosolova” (part of “Seligdar”, 40% of which is owned by the investment company “Russian funds” Sergey Vasileva) increased the production of tin by 6.9%, to 618 T. Until 1990-ies its production reached 18 thousand tons Now to 90% tin Russian imports.

The Deputy Director of the only producer of tin in Russia “Rosolova” Valery Kuznetsov told RBC that the company sent all the necessary documents to the government and hopes for a positive decision. “We look forward to extending the zero rate of mineral extraction tax because our refineries, modernization of which is ongoing, has not yet reached 100% download and do not generate sufficient funds that would have covered the costs of their development,” he says. While most of the investment program is carried out on money of shareholders, said Kuznetsov. According to him, Mining companies will be released this year on a small profit, and fully loaded “Rosolova” only in 2018-2019. “Rosolova” in 2013 took to restore the mining companies in the Khabarovsk Krai and the far East.

Recently, controlled by Millhouse of Roman Abramovich company “Northern tin” refused to develop in the Chukotka Autonomous district fields Pyrkakai (largest in Russia) and passed the license to the state reported by the “Kommersant”. The company decided that this project is economically feasible if volatile prices for the metal. Now a ton of tin on the London metal exchange is $20.3 thousand, but in 2015 the price has dropped to $13.6 K per ton.

Rare metals

Despite the fact that in August 2016, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin instructed the government before 1 December 2016 to consider lower tax rates on rare and rare earth metals, as reported on the website of the President, the final decision was never adopted. Now, with the production of these metals continues to operate the rate of mineral extraction tax of 8%.

Rare earth metals are used in glass and ceramic industry and electronics, in particular, in the production of televisions, computer monitors and mobile phones.

According to the expert magazine “Rare earth” by Sergei Makhov, now the market of rare earth metals monopolisitic China with a share of about 90%. China is also one of the largest consumers of rare metals. High demand also exist in Japan, the EU, UK and USA.

Consumption of rare earth metals in Russia is much higher than production. The latter developed rather poorly and represented by only three large companies: the Solikamsk magnesium plant, “Akron” in Novgorod and the “Hydrometallurgical plant” in the Stavropol region. While Russia is in second place in the world in terms of reserves, after China, the expert said.

Zeroing severance tax on the extraction of rare earth metals is a huge opportunity for the industry, says Mach. This measure will have a positive impact not only on import substitution but also export orientation.

“The decrease in met, if there are no administrative complications, will allow to develop the production of large holdings, which would no longer be afraid of huge taxes,” said Mach.

The media learned about a version of the “phantom state” of the pilot in the crash of Tu-154

The pilot of the Tu-154 in a minute after takeoff sent the plane into a nosedive because of the fact that was in the illusory condition, writes “Kommersant” with reference to the version involved in the investigation of the crash. This version, according to the newspaper, confirmed graphics of the pitch and roll of the aircraft

The pilot of the aircraft of the defense Ministry, Tu-154, having lost reference points on the earth after take-off, not guided by data instruments, and his own illusory sensations, the newspaper “Kommersant”.

According to a source close to the investigation of the crash, without exception, all aircraft systems “to the collision with water react to control actions of the crew in a timely and regular”. A minute after departing from the runway, the pilot suddenly sent the Tu-154 at the peak, instead of continuing the climb.

This behavior can be explained by the specifics of the night’s departure, the newspaper said. A few seconds after departing from well-lit to Adler and crossing also highlighted the coastline “once you get as if into a black hole,” explains Aviaexport. The pilot is “in the power of illusions” and may not correctly estimate the position of the aircraft in space. According to statistics, the loss of spatial orientation is the cause of every tenth of a disaster, says “Kommersant”.

That the pilot of the Tu-154 was in this illusory state, the graphics indicate pitch and roll of the aircraft in the last seconds of flight, the line charts have a “wobble” form, the newspaper said. The participants of the investigation suggest that the pilot was constantly changing the position of the aircraft due to the teams of his vestibular apparatus. Opponents of this version insist that the differences are related to the fact that the system of registration of parameters was faulty, according to the publication.

Previously, “Kommersant” wrote that the cause of the accident could become “strange behavior” of the pilot. After takeoff Tu-154 managed to gain a height of about 250 m and a speed of 360-370 km/h, after which the commander of the crew for some unknown reason, turned the aircraft mode to landing.


Schizophrenia learned to identify the tone of voice

Recently a new fashionable direction was antiagreganta medicine… voices. “Voice, like makeup, can not only age of a person, but to make him younger”, – assured the Vice-President of the Association by … and vonpeterhof, chief researcher of scientific clinical center of otorhinolaryngology of FMBA of Russia, Professor, Department of speech therapy, Moscow state pedagogical University Olga Orlova.


With age the voice changes. Moreover, people of different genders differently. So, if in the period of puberty in women, the voice becomes high, and men sits, in old age everything changed with the exact opposite — a voice of men is higher. Voice ages increase notes of anger and fear scratchiness, hoarseness.

Experts can distinguish at least a hundred characteristics of voice — melodic, heavy, nasal, harsh, squeaky, whiny, jerky, timid Voice… depends on the mood, age, physical and even mental health. Recent studies have shown that the tone of voice can determine the schizophrenia. Depends on the voice and of education — not coincidentally they say that mothers always loud born loud-mouthed children.

“A woman who seeks to marry, always speaks in a high voice. But as soon as she creates a family, the voice goes down, says our expert. – If you want to create the appearance of an experienced, knowledgeable, competent person, always talk with a low tone. This voice is more credible. And high says about hysteria. Teachers in the schools say in a high pitched, imitating the children.”

Some people we listen with pleasure, and the voice of the other causes irritation. “One who has a bad voice, a career will never do”, – said Professor Orlov. While professions in which voice is irrelevant, almost non-existent. “Even the cleaning lady — and she needs to atlatl with the expression,” – says Olga Orlova.

And yet there are professions that are more likely to encounter with various voice disorders. This — teachers, guides, Tutors of kindergartens. In General, the pathologies of the larynx suffer 10-30% of adults. The most common complaints associated with osiplosti, painful sore, soreness, dryness, fatigue. Violations voices arise due to stress, overstrain of ligaments, infection, dry air, Smoking, hypothermia, etc. to avoid complications, experts advise to comply with voice rest — that is, do not try to shout or, alternatively, to whisper — and then, and another requires serious effort. In addition, you should abandon the strong tea and coffee, alcoholic beverages, soda, citrus, crackers, nuts. And, of course, no Smoking. Voice useful warm drinks. It is also possible to poprinimat homeopathic medicines for the treatment of voice disorders — this is now in pharmacies.

Everyone’s voice is as individual as fingerprints; identical spectra simply does not exist. By the way, in ancient times in Italy information about the features of voice was even made in the passport (that’s the origin of the emergence of biometrics). But in recent years, the notion of feminization of the voice — there are special surgical techniques that change the tone. And, of course, there are special exercises allowing the voice to change.

How to improve your voice? Olga Orlova advised to monitor the posture — only a man with a straight back voice can be sure and deep. In addition, the sound should come out of your chest — exhale is better to do stomach.

The expert who predicted the death of Boronenkov: “I Think there will be a second series”

The head of the Center for the study of public applied problems (CIPP) Alexander Zhilin still 20 Feb predicted that fugitive ex-Deputy of the state Duma Denis Boronenkov and his wife could be killed.

What motivated the expert, when he wrote that “Voronenkov and Maksakova is a bull and heifer to the slaughter,” he told the “MK”.

Alexander Zhilin.

– I know well the work of the secret services of Britain and the United States – said Zhilin. – When I started to analyze the chain of events, we saw that this couple are very well motivated to leave the country. And not just to sit down on the train and left. And to effect escape. This is very important when preparing the sacred victim. And then the media starts their position as political opponents to the Russian President, the government, the regime, and so on.

It became obvious that in exchange for security guarantees they provoked in an increasingly tough statements against Russia. In the language of intelligence, it means “to feed the sacred victim”. To create the image of wrestlers threat to the Russian President. Next was the stuffing that Voronenkov supposedly has some secrets regarding Viktor Yanukovych. And finally, all plans were formed… But I honestly didn’t think it would happen so quickly. As political opposition, they have not pulled, so long their PR in this direction was pointless. You could get the opposite result. And then happened what happened.

Today, the network appeared the murder video Boronenkov. How do you assess it?

Guard from among the employees of the SBU goes, waving his purse. Then popping up some screw-head and begins to shoot. And if you look closely at the record, you will see that this home-grown killer has gone very quiet. He clearly gave a guarantee that he will remain alive. The question arises why the guard behaved? Yes, because he had a task not to protect, but to bring Boronenkov to the line of fire. Moreover, there was information with reference to one of the former Vice-Director of the SBU who shot, allegedly, from two trunks. Was also a so-called cleaner who backed up and controlled the situation.

And then everything went according to plan, killer be killed, to be exact – guard Boronenkov he was wounded and in the hospital he died. All according to the law of the genre.

– If it were, do you think, would leave Maksakova alive?

– Would have filled up both by far. In this case, was some kind of trick. Initially, Maria Maksakova was to be with her husband nearby, but then something happened, and one of the guards stayed with her. Maksakova was still alive and realized that the adjustment is very reasonable. Now to it one can not get, even Joseph Kobzon, Elena Drapeko, who I talked to today. Maria must be blocked. Yes, the man in the mountain, everything is clear. But I think that will be a second series. It now begins to use the background of the tragedy. It is very important when sacred victim dies, to give the appropriate picture. To remove it from the tomb of her husband, on the background of the cemetery. All of this terrible grief, but it will play out, and it will be forced to say nasty things about Russia and beyond. If she was there alone, she could have said no, and would they with her did not. But there’s a baby, and it is for women unbearable ordeal. No mother will not stand, when she will blackmail the child.

– Do you think it is possible to return Maria Maksakova in Russia?

– I’m afraid that the trap snapped, and soon it will not be released, and will continue to exploit anti-Russian, anti-Putin regime.

– Who are the puppeteers?

– I believe that started in a big company, and simply attack for the upcoming meeting of Putin and trump. Intelligence agencies and informants are very synchronously. There trump doing odious figure of the person with whom it is impossible to agree, and he doesn’t know what he’s doing. And now Putin will sculpt the President, whose “hands are stained in blood, and he eats babies at night”. I think that could pursue such a goal. Because I looked today, the headlines of the foreign media, they are very characteristic: “the Kremlin killers”, “Murderers from Moscow.” Russia has already appointed guilty. But the unthinkable and, when the President of Ukraine without trial, a verdict…
