Russia through the hidden eye

Good. But may even better.

$ 159 million of investments were attracted by Russian AI startups in 2022
March 22, 2023

According to the Dsight analytical platform, 10 deals involving AI startups totaling $159 million took place in the Russian venture market in 2022. At the same time, $ 108 million of this amount accounted for three transactions with the biotech company Insilico Medicine (it is the parent company of the resident of Skolkovo - Insilico LLC).

Analysts note that compared to 2021, investments in companies using artificial intelligence decreased by 81%, from $ 851 million to $ 159 million, and the number of transactions decreased by more than six times — from 63 to 10. The trend is due to the fact that in 2022 the introduction of artificial intelligence technologies was not a priority for investors and corporations, "as they were looking for solutions aimed at import substitution (mainly SaaS), cybersecurity and logistics."

In 2023, investment in AI is projected to increase, as there is a trend in Russia towards the use of generative artificial intelligence, and the demand for AI in other industries may also resume.
Russian scientists have developed a data transmission algorithm for video cameras

March 22, 2023

MIPT scientists have developed a system that allows video surveillance cameras to transmit data from one device to another for a moving object, reports .

The system is able to create travel records for observed objects by linking images from different cameras and comparing the data obtained by them. The algorithm can recognize the image of an object on different cameras. In addition, the image of the object can be linked even if one camera discerned, say, the license plate on the car, and the second could not do it.

Thanks to this development, the system will be able to automatically accompany any of the objects, gradually transferring it from camera to camera. Such an intelligent video surveillance system can be associated with vehicles on which cameras are installed. This will significantly improve the accuracy of the data collected during observation.
Russia has created a biometric access control system that excludes staff fraud


The software package for managing biometric access control systems and time tracking was presented by the manufacturing company AAM Systems at the conference "Novelties of ACS 2023", held this week in the business space of the Holiday Inn hotel. The patronymic development allows you to combine the functionality of a controller, a reader and a time tracking terminal in one case.

Alexey Umnov, Head of Sales Development Department at AAM Systems

Our product APACS Bio is included in the Unified Register of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The new software package that manages biometric ACS and URV is part of the APACS family. The software products of this line are specially developed by us to regulate the operation of integrated security systems.

Recall that the rules of accreditation for the possession of information systems for biometrics have been developed by the Ministry of Finance. The requirements of the draft resolution of the department have been previously agreed with the FSB of Russia, the text of the document was published in early 2023 on the portal of draft regulatory legal acts. According to the recommendations, for the processing of personal data, government agencies and commercial companies are now required to use only software included in the register of Russian programs for electronic computers and databases.

The market is waiting for the growth of offers for the bioidentification of people

In the global market of identification products based on human biometric data by 2023, several directions have been formed that are based on the recognition of unique parameters: the pattern of papillary patterns on the fingers, the location of veins on the palms or vessels in the iris, facial features and the sound spectrum of the voice.

The RUBE edition in its telegram channel conducts a survey among security specialists about which biometrics identity recognition technology will conquer the market in the near future. The results of the study will become the basis for an expanded material with an overview of domestic systems for bioidentification.

Technologies for identifying employees in Russia are being introduced in the banking and financial spheres, at enterprises of the aviation, railway passenger transportation and metro industries, in IT companies, at factories and oil and gas industries, in educational and cultural institutions. As examples of users of the bioidentification product, AAM Systems specialists cite Alfa Bank, Domodedovo and Koltsovo airports, Lamoda Marketplace, Federation Tower in Moscow City Business Center, My Documents Public Services Center, Moscow Metro, Russian Railways, RusHydro.

Practical application of human biometrics recognition systems

Identification by biometrics at a commercial or state-owned enterprise excludes employee fraud when recording data in the access and time tracking system. In this case, the employer knows exactly who went to the facility.

Alexey Umnov, Head of Sales Development Department at AAM Systems

The advantage of biometrics recognition systems is that, unlike an electronic card, a bioidentifier cannot be forgotten at home. The unique characteristics of an individual employee cannot be lost or transferred to another. Colleagues will not be able to check in at the checkpoint or turnstile for each other, since such a scheme of deception eliminates the need to undergo a fingerprint or facial features scanning procedure. Therefore, the introduction of such software systems as APACS Bio will exclude the use of various ways of circumventing working time accounting systems at the enterprise.

In the domestic market, the option of biometric identification by fingerprint is in demand, in recent years, buyers of systems are interested in such identification being contactless and remote. The face recognition technology meets the new requirements. The employer, through a biometric reader, controls staff access to the facility and to individual premises, keeps records of working hours, installs software for card readers and smartphones.

Also in 2020, new security tasks appeared at the facility: monitoring the body temperature of employees and visitors or the presence of a protective mask on a person's face. Modern domestic developments make it possible to automatically measure deviations from the norm when evaluating biological indicators. APACS Bio will measure a person's body temperature at a distance and in minimal time. The error in this case will be less than 0.5 degrees. The system settings allow you to identify an employee with a partially covered face, for example, when wearing a mask in front of the reader, you do not need to remove it. Also, modern software systems are able to block access to the enterprise for people who violate the mask mode: the turnstile will be blocked to enter the territory of the enterprise

A Russian company has created an analogue of the sensational ChatGPT neural network

March 26, 2023
The Russian company Sistemma has launched an analogue of the ChatGPT neural network in Russian — SistemmaGPT. Artificial intelligence (AI) testing is already available for business, as representatives of the company said on Sunday, March 26.

"The SistemmaGPT artificial intelligence model works on Russian servers and is adapted for business representatives and users from Russia," RIA Novosti quotes the company's message.

It is clarified that the neural network has an impressive list of features: it can analyze large amounts of information, create personal recommendations, process phone calls, respond to emails, and more.

The company has already started working on an AI that will be able to solve complex visual tasks, including recognition, counting and analysis of objects. Beta testing is scheduled to open in June.

On February 3, Izvestia technology columnist Ivan Chernousov revealed a feature of the sensational ChatGPT neural network. According to him, ChatGPT is a neural network that analyzes a user's request and gives the most relevant response. As the expert emphasized, this development poses a danger to the business of not only all search engines, but also voice assistants.

On February 1, a source of Izvestia said that Yandex is developing a Russian version of the ChatGPT neural network. The new neural network will be called YaLM 2.0. In the near future, its training will begin, and the first integrations with services can be launched before the end of the year.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence bot developed by OpenAI. He knows how to conduct a conversation, give answers to questions, as well as edit, create computer code and even poems and songs.

Rosselkhozbank has issued an eco-card as part of the implementation of sustainable development projects

In support of the implementation of its own eco-initiatives, the Rosselkhozbank issued an "EcoCard" of the national payment card system "MIR". Cardholders will be able to participate in the implementation of the programs of the Ecology Fund, established by the RSHB, and contribute to the preservation of natural landscapes, reservoirs and their biodiversity.

In March 2023, RSHB launched a new product aimed at supporting the fund's projects to improve the country's ecology and implement the bank's sustainable development direction. From each transaction on the card, 0.25% of the transaction amount is sent to the Ecology Fund for the implementation of environmental initiatives. At the same time, the clients' own funds are not spent, the bank transfers part of its income to support the implementation of eco-initiatives. The card design is available in the original design. EcoCard retains the advantages of debit cards, besides it can be opened in one of three currencies: rubles, dollars and euros. For RSHB customers, the issue and maintenance of the card are absolutely free.

Environmental protection and environmental care are among the key priorities in the activities of the Rosselkhozbank. To this end, the Ecology Foundation was established in the fall of 2021.

"Rosselkhozbank strives to expand its product line with profitable offers for customers. The Bank adheres to the concept of "green banking", supports environmental initiatives and launches "green" products, thereby broadcasting the ideas and principles of responsible financing and respect for the environment of its customers. Only by joint efforts can we preserve the ecology of not only the country, but also the whole world," says Elena Volosevich, Director of the Retail Products and Processes Development Department of the Rosselkhozbank.

In February 2023, at a meeting of the Board of Trustees with the participation of the Head of Rosprirodnadzor Svetlana Radionova, the action plan of the Ecology Foundation was approved, which included more than 30 projects in 4 main areas: waste management, protection of water bodies and their ecosystems, environmental education of the population, protection of wildlife and their habitat with a focus on on red book animals.

One of the key projects is the release of 20,000 sturgeon fry into the waters of Lake Baikal. Baikal sturgeon is listed in the Red Books of Russia and Mongolia. The sturgeon population has dropped to a critically low level. Currently, this fish is becoming rarer and is on the verge of extinction, and the recovery of the population is extremely slow. Other organisms and the entire fauna of Lake Baikal depend on the degradation of one species. The goal of the Ecology Foundation is to prevent the destruction of the natural wealth of the reservoir and to preserve the population of the Baikal sturgeon.

"The Earth's resources are depleted and caring for the environment plays an important role in society. The priority task of the Ecology Fund for the current year is to attract the bank's customers and all interested parties to the problem of improving the ecosystem of reservoirs. With the help of the EcoCard and the bank's customer support, it will be possible to achieve the intended goals faster," added Elmira Morozova, Director of the Ecology Foundation.

Detailed information on the product can be obtained in the bank's branches, mobile application, by phone number of the Contact Center 8-800-100-0-100 and on the official website .

Dear customers, partners, colleagues!

The sustainable development agenda has always been an important component for our country. The cultural code of Russians has a careful attitude to nature, a commitment to healthy food, and energy conservation. 89% of Russian residents believe that a responsible attitude to the environment is everyone's business.

Today, the world has entered a phase of global transformation. Despite the economic and geopolitical difficulties that have arisen, the sustainable development agenda has not lost its relevance, its new priorities are initiatives aimed at ensuring the welfare of the population, food security and modernization of the economy.

Rosselkhozbank retains the priority of sustainable development of the agro-industrial complex of Russia, more than 60% of our loan portfolio falls on the agro-industrial sector. Thanks to the systematic support of the industry, the country's food security is ensured, hundreds of thousands of jobs are saved, rural territories are developing. We help to maintain a sustainable and inclusive economy for our customers, partners and the population - this is an absolute value of the Rosselkhoznadzor.

Taking into account the new external economic conditions and regulatory requirements, the Bank has formed an updated approach to the implementation of projects and the implementation of the principles of sustainable development. The Sustainable Development Policy has been approved, which establishes the fundamental principles and defines the Bank's unified approaches in this area. Among the key areas of work: integrated development of rural areas, support of agricultural producers through the ecosystem "OWN", cooperation with agricultural universities, implementation of activities within the framework of the activities of the funds "Ecology" and "Organic", financing of projects in the field of solid municipal waste management, implementation of joint initiatives with Rosprirodnadzor.

Do you remember the postulate "we are all children of nature"? It is as relevant as ever. After all, the well-being and health of future generations depend on the decisions we make today. The sustainable development of our country is everyone's business!

VTB contact centers will switch to empathy enhancement technology

VTB has completed testing of a speech simulator to develop the skills of "live" communication of employees of the bank's contact center. It will help to make the interaction with the bank's customers more careful and productive, reducing the conversation time and the share of negative reviews. The solution is being prepared for commercial operation in the bank.

Speech simulator "Dialog. Simulator" allows you to teach employees to communicate with customers not only using standard scripts, but also allows you to better understand requests and provide information in the most convenient format. You can use it to control the tempo, expressiveness and other parameters of speech in order to learn how to establish trusting contact with the client and minimize negative reaction. It also allows you to work out the main stages of the dialogue and forms skills that help reduce communication time.

The simulator promotes better assimilation of the material during the training period. The speech module is integrated into the bank-wide staff training program and is available in a web version for mobile and stationary devices.

"The speech simulator is a Russian development. It is distinguished by a combination of advanced speech analysis technologies and a unique technique for speech correction, "packaged" in a ready-to-use solution in the banking sector. This made it possible to reduce the conversation time by 25-30 seconds, which is more than 8% of its average duration, reduce the share of negative feedback from users by more than 5%, and reduce the outflow of contact center employees by 66%," said Sergey Bezbog, Deputy head of the VTB Bank technology unit.

"The joint work of robots and humans has become one of the main trends in the development of contact centers. To train employees, we have also implemented a training tool using a bot. I think this is a successful synergy of the work of the trainer and the simulator. This method allows not only to save the resources of the teacher, and students to repeatedly take a course of study, but also to overcome the emotional barrier when communicating with clients for the first time. The work of a contact center operator is complex and requires special communication skills - every day each employee receives more than 100 requests on various issues. The simulator helps operators to quickly navigate topics and switch between dialogues, saving effort, energy and time. We plan to actively develop the voice simulator, and this year we will introduce more than ten new scenarios," comments Olga Tsegelnaya, Head of the Customer Service Department - Vice President of VTB.

95 employees of the contact center participated in the pilot project for 6 months. Measurements of key indicators of the pilot group were carried out in parallel with measurements of indicators for the control group, which did not use speech simulators to train new employees. Comparison of the results of the pilot and control groups showed high efficiency of the solution.

During the employee's communication with the simulator, the system analyzes the parameters of his speech and makes recommendations for its correction depending on the type of dialogue and the training scenario. As part of working out the "conflict" scenario, the employee can be given the necessary recommendations to reduce the negativity when communicating with the client. A simulator has also been developed for practicing sales skills, which will soon be integrated into the initial training of employees.

The training consists of three stages: first, the employee utters individual phrases, then plays the entire dialogue, and at the "exam" reproduces the entire text already worked out with the correct intonations.

The pilot project has shown that tools that can give employees more understanding and more opportunities to manage client dialogue have a positive impact not only on the productivity of the workflow, but also on employee satisfaction with themselves, because it significantly facilitates work and reduces stress when interacting with clients, especially at the initial stages.

Testing of the technology was carried out in the VTB Accelerator, and the speech simulator itself "Dialog. Simulator" is a development of the Russian company "Rapport Top".

Environmentalists offered to participate in the action and turn off the lights for an hour on March 25

March 24, 2023
Russian environmental organizations have called on Russians to join the campaign "Help the Planet" and reduce electricity consumption on Saturday for one hour. This is stated in the statement of the all-Russian public organization "Green Patrol".

All citizens and organizations are encouraged to join the action. It is proposed to turn off all appliances for an hour and reduce energy consumption at 20:30.

The organization noted that the reduction in energy consumption on this day is symbolic. This gesture should demonstrate the responsible attitude of Russians to the environment, as well as the country's willingness to use "green" practices in everyday life. The organization added that the entire world community should have common goals in protecting the environment.

Environmentalists also called for turning off the illumination of buildings for this hour, in particular, the buildings of the Moscow Kremlin, the Government House and other public authorities.
The State Duma will support the initiative of environmentalists for an hour without light

March 25, 2023
State Duma deputies will support the initiative, the lower house of parliament said in a statement.

"On March 25, the lighting of the exterior facade of the building on Okhotny Ryad will be turned off from 20:30 to 21:30," the report says.

The purpose of this campaign is to draw attention to a careful and responsible attitude to nature and the resources of the planet. A power outage for an hour will significantly reduce energy consumption.

The virtual number will not pass

Anonymity on the Internet is proposed to limit a little more

Roskomnadzor suggests using the equipment installed at providers within the framework of the law on the sovereign Runet to restrict access to anonymization tools. As such, the agency separately attributed services for the use of virtual phone numbers. The description also includes numbers on Pavel Durov's Fragment platform, which can be bought with cryptocurrency for anonymous registration in Telegram. Lawyers remind that the use of virtual numbers is not illegal in itself.

Kommersant got acquainted with the draft government decree developed by Roskomnadzor, which proposes to change the rules of centralized management of the public communications network. We are talking about a document describing the installation of equipment for technical means of countering threats (TSPU) on the networks of telecom operators within the framework of the law on the sovereign Runet.

According to the draft, among the threats that are prescribed to be filtered through the TSP, it is planned to include sites that allow anonymizing Internet users.

In the explanatory note, Roskomnadzor clarifies that these include services that allow you to register on websites and messengers using a virtual phone number. The amendments, if adopted by the government, will enter into force on March 1, 2024.

Since May 2019, messengers operating in Russia must identify users. This is usually done when registering by a mobile phone number, which cannot be issued anonymously in the Russian Federation. Roskomnadzor assumes that access to sites that allow you to register via virtual numbers "promotes the use of communication services for illegal purposes" and violates Internet security in Russia.

Registration via a mobile phone number is implemented, among other things, in popular messengers that position themselves as protected — Telegram and Signal. At the same time, Telegram from December 2022 allows you to register for virtual numbers purchased for cryptocurrency on the Fragment service founded by Pavel Durov. Telegram did not respond to a request from Kommersant.

Recently, SIP telephony (a type of protocol that provides data exchange on the network in multimedia format) has been most often used for fraudulent activities, including using virtual numbers, the Information Security Incident Response Center CERT-GIB told Kommersant.

At the same time, according to them, scammers have become more likely to make calls via messengers: "This helps to bypass the protection measures of mobile operators and not spend money on number substitution, and such calls rarely arouse suspicion in the victim." Earlier, experts noted that due to the reduction in the number of Russian numbers available for substitution, fraudsters began to use numbers from other countries that are visually similar to Russian ones (see Kommersant of February 17). Attackers use virtual mobile numbers in 57% of cases, the company "Informzashita" estimated. The largest telecom operators MTS, Vimpelcom, MegaFon and Tele2 declined to comment.

The proposed restrictions may be broader than Roskomnadzor describes in the explanatory note: they cover not only communication services, but also information systems, says Evgeny Kravchenko, an expert at the DRC law firm: "According to the law, the concept of an information system is somewhat broader, so any means of anonymization can potentially be filtered." At the same time, he recalled that in Russia it is not prohibited to use virtual numbers or other similar means: "But if an offense is committed through a virtual number or VPN and if it is possible to correlate you and the service, then, obviously, there will be a threat of punishment."

Programs that open access to information prohibited in the Russian Federation are already subject to filtering through the TSPU according to existing rules, and the Tor browser site, which allows you to visit sites anonymously, is blocked by a court decision, said Ekaterina Abashina, a lawyer at the Central Committee of Moscow "DBA and Partners". She noted that the system of centralized management of Internet traffic "in itself disposes to arbitrary decisions", blocking through the TSPU does not imply the same openness as blocking on the registers of prohibited sites: "It will not work to check online what exactly is filtered through the TSPU."

In Russia, the selection of providers for an educational AI project has started

The selection of educational providers for the artificial intelligence project has been announced, thanks to which Russians will be able to receive additional professional education in the field of digital technologies with the financial support of the state.

"The operator of the University 2035 project announces an open selection of educational organizations and advanced training programs in the following areas: data analyst, data engineer, technical analyst, data architect, AI architect, AI project manager," the organizers said in a statement.

The full cost of the programs should be up to 110 thousand rubles, while the amount of up to 85 thousand rubles will be compensated to organizations by the state, and citizens will be able to pay the rest on their own. Applications from providers are accepted until April 9, 2023 inclusive. You can get acquainted with the requirements and submit an application on the website.

Citizens wishing to participate in the project have the opportunity to study online on favorable terms - up to 90% of the course cost is funded from the funds of the federal Artificial Intelligence project of the national Digital Economy project.

The national project "Digital Economy" is aimed at accelerating the introduction of digital technologies in the economy and social sphere, creating conditions for high-tech business, increasing the country's competitiveness in the global market, strengthening national security and improving the quality of people's lives. National projects initiated by Russian President Vladimir Putin started in 2019.

Norilsk Nickel to reward employees with digital financial assets

March 17, 2023
Norilsk Nickel is launching a remuneration program for employees of Digital Investor, Interfax reports. The program participants will receive digital financial assets linked by value to Norilsk Nickel shares.

As part of the program, every employee of the Digital Assets company, whose experience in the company was at least 1 year as of January 1, will receive a CFA. The company itself will provide tokens to employees by buying out a stake in Norilsk Nickel. The longer an employee has worked in the company, the more CFA he will receive. The position does not matter at the same time. However, it will be possible to sell them not earlier than a year after receipt. The mechanism for issuing and selling tokens will be implemented through the Atomize platform.

The customer of the program is Norilsk Nickel itself, he will also monitor its implementation. Representatives of the company also noted that no additional issue of shares or repurchase is expected. Since the program is a pilot, the volume will be small. Therefore, it will not have an impact on the stock market.

Norilsk Nickel plans that the pilot program will last a year. Depending on its results and feedback from employees, the company will consider further development of the project.
News basic income
The news service of the Public Movement "Basic Income Russia TOMORROW" is the only website in Russia specializing exclusively in news about basic income, providing reliable reports from well-informed authors.

Russian universities join discussions on basic income
Leading universities in Russia participated in the discussion on basic income.

There is a growing interest in basic income in Russia, including at the academic level. Leading Russian universities are organizing discussions on this issue with the support and participation of the Public Movement "Basic Income Russia TOMORROW". Given the worldwide recognition of Russian universities, this may be a fact of paramount importance for the global development of the basic income movement.

Discussion basic income Lomonosov Moscow State University
On April 18, 2019, Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Dispute Club Association of Independent Centers of Economic Analysis "Nodes of Economic Policy" held a discussion (dispute): "Universal basic income: a tribute to populism or social policy of the future?".
Disputants: Grand PhD in Economic Professor E. Gontmacher, leading researcher Y. Kuznetsov. A video of this event can be viewed here.

The public movement "Basic Income Russia TOMORROW" also took part in the debate. The speech was delivered by the Head of the movement Alexander Solovyov, who spoke about the main income in the world today and stressed the need for pilot projects in Russia to implement the main income.

Discussion basic income Plekhanov Russian University of Economics
On April 25, 2019, Plekhanov Russian University of Economics hosted the IX International Scientific and Practical Conference "Abalkin Readings".
The social movement "Basic Income Russia TOMORROW" took part in section 6 of the Conference: "Mechanisms for improving the system of labor relations", co-chairs: Doctor of Economics Grand PhD in Economic Professor Bobkov V.N., Doctor of Economics Soboleva I.V.

The report was made by the Head of the movement Solovyov A. The topic of the report: "Digitalization and the demand for basic income". As part of the report, a popular cartoon translated into Russian "What is the main income?" was shown and had success for the audience (creator of the cartoon: artist Atxe, Spain, for Red Renta Básica).

Despite very different opinions, the participants of both events came to the conclusion that the main income in Russia needs a broad discussion.

The Russian version of the popular cartoon UBI

Precarization, unemployment and lack of freedom. Basic income is a measure against poverty, which also gives us the opportunity to lead a more decent life. This is not charity, but a guarantee of the right to exist.

The creator of the cartoon is the artist Atxe (Spain). 2 years ago, this popular cartoon was created in Spanish for Red Renta Basica, the Spanish branch of BEN (the Worldwide Network of Basic Income).

At the beginning of this year, at the initiative of Carlos Arias, an activist of UBIE (Unconditional Basic Income Europe), the cartoon was translated into English.

The cartoon materials were kindly provided to our Movement by Carlos Arias and Atxe. And thanks to their help, with joint cooperation with activists of our Movement, the cartoon is now available in Russian.

The social movement "Basic Income Russia TOMORROW" expresses its gratitude to the author and all those involved in the work on the cartoon!

March 23, 2023

The welcoming words of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin addressed to the Chief Chairman clearly seemed significant to someone: "It is important that you make your first foreign visit to our country after your re-election. This testifies to the special nature of Russian-Chinese relations entering a new era." This new era, according to all the logic of events, will be a "figure" and, as is usual with globalists of all stripes, "sustainable development". This term is now used both for the Arctic and in the fields of transport, climate change and other "shnyags" that the Anglo-Saxons broadcast to the rest of the world. One has only to read the Joint Statement of the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China on international relations entering a new era and global sustainable development, which will now become a manual for the "technical" premier.
True, it is from 2022, but there will be few changes.

Let's get back to the main point. "The governments of Russia and China must ensure coordinated work on the implementation of all agreements that will be reached at the highest level," our White House said in a release after the end of the current visit. Mishustin will coordinate this work personally with Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Qiang. But this is only the vertical of relations. The new era requires network development. That is why Mishustin writes that "my deputies, heads of ministries and departments ... interact directly with their Chinese colleagues, are engaged in real-time promotion of joint projects in supervised areas." Everything seems right, but one point is annoying, said a year ago in a joint statement by the President of the People's Republic of China and the President of the Russian Federation. He said about COVID-19: "The ongoing pandemic of a new coronavirus infection poses a serious challenge to the implementation of the UN agenda for sustainable development until 2030. It is extremely important to improve partnerships in the interests of global development, to help ensure that the new stage of global development is characterized by balance, harmony and inclusiveness." This is a direct quote from the WEF manuals by Klaus Schwab. And this is what our prime minister will now be guided by – he can't let the curators down.

What else did the leaders of the opposing countries of the Anglo-Saxons agree on and what will the "technical" prime minister have to do in 2023? Last year, Russia and China called for "universal well-being" through strengthening dialogue and mutual trust in order to "deepen mutual understanding, defend such universal values as peace, development, equality, justice, democracy and freedom, respect the rights of peoples to independently choose the path of development of their countries, as well as the sovereignty and interests of states in areas of security and development". The joint statement stated:

- The demand to protect the international system based on the central role of the UN, the world order based on international law, to achieve genuine multilateralism with the central and coordinating role of the UN and its Security Council.
- A call to promote the democratization of international relations, to ensure the achievement of peace, stability and sustainable development on earth. It's like in the main toast of the American girls from the movie "Miss Congeniality": "For world peace!".
- Understanding that democracy is a way for citizens to participate in the governance of their own country in the interests of improving the welfare of the population and ensuring the principle of democracy.
It is clear that democratic principles are implemented not only in domestic governance, but also at the global level.
- That the protection of democracy and human rights should not be used as a tool to exert pressure on other countries.
- The need to strictly observe the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They "defined noble goals in the field of universal human rights, fixed the basic principles that all States should follow and implement in practice."
- Intensification of work on the integration of the development plans of the Eurasian Economic Union and the "One Belt, One Road" initiative.
- Deepening practical cooperation in the field of sustainable development of the Arctic.
- The requirement to increase cooperation within the framework of multilateral mechanisms, including the UN, promoting the inclusion of development issues by the international community in the list of key points in the coordination of global macro-policy.
- Confirmation of readiness to continue work on the "Global Development Initiative" put forward by the PRC, including participation in the activities of the "Group of Friends in Support of the Global Development Initiative at the UN site".

And here's the main thing: Russia and China have jointly supported and defended the multilateral trading system based on the central role of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and want to take an active part in its reform, and the prevention of unilateral approaches and protectionism.

This is still the main message for our government. It is a pity that there were no real changes in the position. This can be understood from the list of agreements that were reached during the state visit of President Xi Jinping (Kremlin website):

Joint Statement of the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China on deepening comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation entering a new era.
Joint statement by the President of the Russian Federation and the Chairman of the People's Republic of China on the plan for the development of key areas of Russian-Chinese economic cooperation until 2030.

Agreement on information exchange and cooperation between the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Information Telegraph Agency of Russia (ITAR-TASS)" (Russian Federation) and the Xinhua News Agency (People's Republic of China).

The "preferences" that many Russian officials, who have not yet encountered the MGB of China, personally expect to receive are understandable. And there they look after everyone and will not allow the "redistribution" of investors' money. "The East is a delicate matter! Petrukhi," but in the case of the Chinese, it is very understandable."

The digital ruble is getting closer to wallets: when will Russians be able to pay with virtual currency?

The digitalization of the domestic currency is entering a new stage of its development. From April 1, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation launches real calculations in digital rubles in a test mode. We tell you what a digital ruble is, why it is needed and how quickly it can end up in citizens' wallets in our cards.

What is a digital ruble?

Technically, each such ruble is a unique digital code that will be stored as records in customers' electronic wallets.

These wallets themselves, in turn, will be stored on the digital ruble platform — a special infrastructure created by the Central Bank. This is one of the main differences between digital and non-cash money, which are usually on accounts in commercial banks.

How will the testing take place?

Recall that the first stage took place in 2021-2022 and consisted in creating a prototype of the digital ruble platform and its further testing. Banks clarified issues of technical and operational interaction with the regulator, and the Central Bank itself, in addition, checked the issuance procedures, since it will be the only one who can "print" digital rubles.

The scheme of the current stage of testing, according to the first deputy chairman of the Bank of Russia Olga Skorobogatova, looks like this: 13 testing banks selected a certain number of clients - individuals and legal entities (how exactly the selection took place is not disclosed), who will be the first to start digital wallets and transfer money to each other or pay in "trade and service enterprises". But not all of them. "The pilot will focus on real operations, real clients, but on a limited number of operations and a limited number of clients," Skorobogatova emphasizes.

After the testing is completed, the regulator will be able to determine exactly how to offer the virtual ruble to the entire population.

And when will everyone be able to start using the digital ruble?

Initially, when formulating the concept of the digital ruble, the Central Bank assumed that its widespread use would begin in 2030.
However, numerous sanctions against Russia, including in the financial sector, forced the regulator to accelerate. The exact dates are not called, but judging by the fact that already in 2024 it is planned to launch the possibility of exchanging the digital ruble for foreign currency, as well as to allow non-residents to open wallets, the current year, 2023, is given to prepare for the introduction to the masses.
( :D :D :D )

In turn, work continues on changing the legislation so that the digital ruble receives an official status as a means of settlement. The State Duma Committee on the Financial Market recommended the adoption in the first reading of the relevant bill, which creates the basis for the introduction of the digital ruble. The project, among other things, establishes the procedure for opening, maintaining and closing a digital wallet and access to the digital ruble platform. The specifics of the transfer of such rubles are clarified, in particular the moment of irrevocability, as well as the finality of the transfer and the circumstances under which the transfer order is not subject to execution. In addition, the responsibility of the Central Bank for the safety of digital rubles is determined, as well as for the correctness of accounting for information about transactions with them.

Consideration of the project is included in the spring session of the Duma, however, so far without a specific date.

And how will it be possible to get these digital rubles and electronic wallets?

The Central Bank does not tire of emphasizing: the digital ruble is not a classic cryptocurrency, but the so—called digital currency of central banks (Central Securities, or CBDC). Their main difference from the crypt is that they, like the traditional currency, have an issue center. That is, like the usual rubles, only the Russian Central Bank will issue digital ones.

Initially, the regulator considered several models for the introduction of the digital ruble. As a result, I settled on a two-level retail scheme. The first level is the Central Bank, which launches the digital ruble platform, issues it and opens electronic wallets for banks and financial intermediaries. It will also determine the rules of operations with digital currency and implement appropriate policies.

This is how the concept describes the emission process. When a bank needs digital rubles, it requests their issue from the Central Bank. He writes off non-cash funds from the account of a credit institution and transfers them into digital format to its electronic wallet.

At the second level, banks act as intermediaries for individuals and legal entities. They will open and maintain electronic wallets for those, conduct transactions, etc. In many ways, this model is similar to the one implemented by China with the digital yuan. It follows from the concept of the Central Bank that the electronic wallet will not be a separate application, but an integration into already known mobile applications of banks.

At this level, the interaction should look like this:

through the application of any bank whose services are used, the client registers on the digital ruble platform and opens an electronic wallet. At the same time, it does not matter through which bank the person connected to the system. In the future, he will also be able to enter the electronic wallet and use digital rubles through the application of any bank convenient to him;
then he sends a request to the credit institution to replenish this wallet;
she writes off part of his non-cash funds, and then transfers digital rubles from her electronic wallet to the client's wallet.

In practice, this whole process should take very little time.

Will it be possible to transfer any amount?

Probably, the Central Bank will introduce some restrictions.
Several options were considered:

limit on the balance in the wallet;
limit on the amount of one operation;
limit on the number of operations.

Most likely, the first option will be chosen. In any case, Olga Skorobogatova said that it is planned to introduce limits on wallet balances, but the final decision will be made after the end of the pilot project.

Will they charge interest on digital rubles?

No. The Central Bank has repeatedly stressed that the digital ruble is just another form of means of payment, and not a special banking product. Considering that all digital wallets will be stored on the platform of the Central Bank and it will be he who will be responsible for their safety, we can consider such a ruble as a more reliable means of storage than cash under the mattress. But it is definitely not worth considering the tool as a source of additional income.

How will the purchases be paid for?

It will be possible to pay in digital rubles both online and offline — in the absence of the Internet.

Paying for a purchase with the Internet in many ways looks the same as paying with a QR code now. To do this, the customer will need to read the QR code (or other identifier) of the product through the bank's mobile application and confirm the payment from his wallet.

The internal kitchen of the operation will look like this: the bank, having received a request from the client for debiting, will transfer the required amount from his wallet to the wallet of the store, and then send a notification that digital rubles have been debited. And in order for the operation to take place, the legal organization, of course, will also need its own electronic wallet.

How to pay without Internet?

To do this, in addition to the online wallet, a second wallet will be opened to the client - directly on the mobile device. Then the user will have to save the required amount of digital rubles on this second wallet in advance. In fact, just like now you have to stock up on cash if you go to a place where bank cards are not accepted.

Obviously, if there is no digital money on an offline wallet, then you will not be able to pay without the Internet.

In addition, offline it will be possible not only to pay for goods and services, but also to transfer digital money to other people — to an offline wallet on their device. It is assumed that a small—radius data transmission technology will be used for this, for example, Bluetooth or NFC. And the recipients of the funds will then be able to either leave as is or transfer the money further to an online wallet.

Will it be possible to cash out digital rubles?

It will definitely be possible to first transfer digital rubles to non-cash ones, and then withdraw money from an ATM.

Will it be possible to remove cashless payments from this chain? The Central Bank declares that "customers will be provided with a service for making seamless payments with the transfer from digital rubles to non-cash and cash, as well as from cash and non-cash rubles to digital." From which it can be assumed that there should not be a "layer" of cashless money between digital and cash rubles.

Suppose I transfer digital rubles to an offline wallet, and then lose or break my smartphone. What then? Will my digital rubles be lost?

For offline wallets, market players asked the regulator to provide for the possibility of recovery. And he is working on such a mechanism, although details about this have not yet been received. It is possible that in the end it will be decided that such losses will not be reimbursed — just as in the case of loss or damage to cash lying in the wallet.

And those rubles that are on the online wallet should not suffer. The user will simply be able to connect to the platform on a new device.

It seems to me that this is all quite complicated. Will I be able to refuse and not use the digital ruble? Or will it replace the usual money?

No, the digital ruble should become the third form of money, along with the usual cash and non-cash rubles. And all forms will be equivalent: one digital ruble will be equal to one cash and one non-cash.

The Central Bank does not set the task of making the digital ruble the most popular form of money. First of all, it should be convenient for Russians. And those will choose for themselves what suits them more, as it was, for example, with non-cash payments.

( ;) :D
I believe! )

Who else is working on the digitalization of the national currency?

As Olga Skorobogatova said, the Bank of Russia is working on creating a model for settlements in digital currencies with friendly countries. For example, in Jamaica, a currency called jam-dex was launched in August 2022. To popularize the project, the authorities announced that the first 100 thousand users who will get themselves digital wallets in a special mobile application will receive a digital bonus in the equivalent of $ 2.5 thousand.

China continues to actively implement the digital yuan. The e-CNY tests in 2022, including during the Olympic Games in Beijing, were considered very successful. At the moment, almost all provinces of the Celestial Empire use a digital version of money in a pilot format. By August 2022, consumers had conducted more than 260 million transactions.

In August 2022, the Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Ali Salehabadi spoke about the preparation of a pilot launch of the cryptorial. And at the end of February, CIB representatives announced plans to "expand the scale of the pilot project", but without haste with its implementation.

However, the results in countries where the currency has already been partially converted to virtual vary greatly. For example, Cambodia was one of the first, in the fall of 2020, to officially launch its digital currency bakong. According to foreign media reports, during the year the turnover of payments in this form amounted to about $ 3 billion, and in 2022 about half of the country's residents used the system for purchases and transfers. But in Nigeria, the situation is different. At the beginning of 2022, the country released eNaira, which is available to all Nigerian citizens and legal entities. As the local Central Bank noted, in eight months of operation, only 18.5 thousand people have replenished digital wallets.

But why do we need a digital ruble at all, if there is cash and cashless?

The Central Bank itself explained why it introduces the digital ruble:

- it will make payments even easier, faster and safer;
- it will become an incentive for "innovations both in the field of retail payments and in other areas and will support the development of the digital economy. And reducing the dependence of users on individual providers will increase the stability of the country's financial system";
- the project aims to further reduce the share of cash in the economy.

In addition, due to the specifics of the digital ruble, all operations with it for the Central Bank will be completely transparent.
This, according to market players, will help in the calculations of state contracts — the authorities will be able to easily track that all the money went to targeted expenses. It will also simplify the restoration of the rights of the owner of digital rubles in case of their loss or theft.

Plus, ensuring cybersecurity of working with digital currency remains an important aspect."

It is quite clear that this is not the same as the slave CBDCs in the decadent West.
The opposite conclusion is nothing more than russophobia, eurasophobia and anti-multipolarism!

Choose the currency of the truly free world.

Russian banks have announced their readiness to test the digital ruble on real customers

The launch of the pilot with a digital ruble is planned to begin after the adoption of the regulatory framework at the end of April - May

MOSCOW, March 28, 2023. /tass/. The launch of a pilot with a digital ruble on transactions with real customers will begin after the adoption of the regulatory framework in late April - May, however, the surveyed Russian banks are ready to start testing the digital ruble. This was told to TASS in credit institutions.

It was planned to start testing real payments with a digital ruble from April 1, 2023, but the package of bills on the digital ruble passed only the first reading in the State Duma. The Central Bank said that testing will begin only after the regulatory framework is adopted. Later, the head of the State Duma Committee on the financial Market, Anatoly Aksakov, said that the start of testing the digital ruble would have to be postponed, since the legislative framework for its implementation is not yet ready, and its implementation under the experimental legal regime is not expected. He noted that the law on the digital ruble will probably be adopted in April and will come into effect in May.

Initially, the Central Bank planned to start testing with 15 banks. Then the regulator announced that 13 banks had technically confirmed their readiness and would participate in the pilot on real operations with a limited number of customers.

High availability
Alfa-Bank told TASS that testing of the digital ruble is going according to plan and the bank is ready to conduct the first transactions in the near future. The Soyuz Bank also noted that they plan to be ready to launch testing on real customers on time. The credit institution indicated that the first participants in the project will be employees of the bank as individuals and as a trade and service enterprise - Ingosstrakh (Soyuz is part of the Ingosstrakh group).

Rosbank is also ready to take part in testing. They stressed that a close and loyal group of people to the development of the digital ruble platform will participate in the pilot, and the interaction of the bank's systems with the Central Bank and the digital ruble platform goes smoothly. "There are no difficulties in interaction. However, we are well aware that we are building a platform of the future, so all issues related to the interaction of systems with the Central Bank and the digital ruble platform are resolved promptly," said Olga Makhova, Director of Innovation and Data Management at Rosbank.

Bank Sinara also announced that it had successfully carried out a set of measures to interact with the digital ruble platform of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and confirmed its technical readiness to launch operations with digital rubles. The bank added that the mobile applications on the Android platform of Sinara Bank and Delobank implemented the services required to launch the piloting and carried out basic operations, such as opening a digital ruble wallet, replenishing the wallet, debiting, receiving information about the balance of the wallet, the history of wallet transactions.

"The main task of the digital ruble is to create new opportunities for the state and business. Banks as financial intermediaries will receive a new infrastructure for transfers using the digital ruble, including cross-border ones. New services will be created, stimulating an increase in the level of competition for customers in the financial sector. The use of smart contracts should lead to a reduction in the operational burden on banks and make transparent the transactions of customers themselves, which will not only reduce the possibility of misuse of the allocated targeted funds by the state and business, but also unambiguously simplify control over the concluded contracts," said Vitaly Kopysov, Director of Innovation at Bank Sinara."

OK, but How could it be more convenient for the inhabitants of perhaps the only country in the world that is ruled by anti-Davos and anti-WEF authorities who go hand in hand with their people, in a different, human, good way?

Putin instructed to prepare a draft decree on a "digital passport" by May 1
The document will determine the cases and procedure for using a digital identity card instead of a passport
Путин поручил до 1 мая подготовить проект указа о цифровом паспорте

MOSCOW, March 27. /tass/. President Vladimir Putin ordered to draft a decree by May 1, which will determine the cases and procedure for using a digital identity card instead of a passport. Such an item is contained in the list of instructions of the head of state, published on Monday on the Kremlin's website.
"The Government of the Russian Federation, together with the FSB of Russia and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, should prepare and submit a draft decree of the President of the Russian Federation establishing the cases and procedure for presenting a digital identity card of a citizen of the Russian Federation obtained using the mobile application of the federal state information system "Unified Portal of State and Municipal Services", instead of documents certifying the identity of a citizen of the Russian Federation," one from the points.

The deadline for execution of the order is set until May 1.

The task was set following a meeting with the government held on February 15. At it, the head of the Ministry of Finance Maksut Shadaev spoke about the technology that "will allow in 80% of cases - in such everyday, simple situations - to use a smartphone instead of the original passport." The minister suggested thinking about the "legalization and mass implementation" of the solution and asked to issue a decree that will determine possible cases of using a digital identity card on a smartphone as a passport replacement. Putin supported this idea.
Meeting with members of the Government

Vladimir Putin held a meeting with members of the government in a videoconference. The main directions of tax administration in 2023 were discussed. as well as topical issues.

February 15, 2023

"Vladimir Putin:
We have already transferred 260 public services in electronic form, and this year we plan to transfer another 181 services in electronic form.

Maksut Igorevich, can we cope with this task?

Maksut Shadaev: Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! Dear colleagues!

Last December, the government completed the first stage of a large-scale effort to convert mass socially significant services into electronic form. We do this work according to your instructions.

The initial plan included 204 services with more than 100,000 visits per year: 111 services provided by federal agencies and 93 services provided by regional departments and local governments. Now all these services can be obtained without having to personally contact the authorities, the MFC. Through the portal, you can send an electronic form and immediately receive the necessary documents in the portal's personal account based on the results.

In addition, Vladimir Vladimirovich, you mentioned 260 services - these are services related to obtaining permits and licenses. This is the work that Dmitry Grigorenko performs as part of the optimization of licensing procedures. There are actually 260 services. There is not so much traffic for them, but it is clear that this significantly reduces business costs, because it is also an electronic filing: electronic licenses or permits are credited to your personal account, signed with the electronic signature of an official. In general, there are no documents, everything is fast. If a refusal occurs, a pre-trial appeal procedure is applied accordingly, which allows the company to understand the reasons for the refusal and get a really fair decision.

If we talk about mass services, which are mainly used by citizens, then we are talking about social benefits and allowances. Anton Olegovich said this already from his side: these are marriage registration, birth, registration at the place of residence. In general, everything we do now can be done electronically.

At the same time, it is very important, Vladimir Vladimirovich, that we keep the traditional format of filing documents for everyone. That is, those who want to, can still apply in person, come and submit the original document – in this sense, there is no discrimination.

It is very important that when solving this problem, we had to build a large platform at the same time, especially for regional and municipal authorities. It turns out that they have different levels of digitization, and many are even technically unable to accept electronic applications from the portal. Now a very large system has been created as the first brick of the large Gostech platform, which Dmitry Nikolaevich told you about.

It employs about 60 thousand employees, seven thousand bodies, and in this system incoming applications are considered and decisions are made within the framework of the provision of relevant services. This is, of course, a large interdepartmental project, and in fact we are leveling the degree of digitization at the municipal and regional levels, giving [the opportunity] to everyone who did not have such an opportunity to work electronically.

It is very important that our work does not end there. We have provided electronic input, electronic output, but Anton Olegovich absolutely correctly said that our technical capabilities already allow us to significantly reduce the time of providing services.

Indeed, we already have basic information within the framework of systematic interdepartmental electronic interaction, our main departments have serious information systems. Now we really have the opportunity to provide a variety of services on the Internet or significantly reduce the decision-making time for these services to several days. So here we continue to work.

Separately, I would like to say a few words about digital copies of documents.

Vladimir Vladimirovich, I informed you that at the end of last year we planned to launch an electronic digital driver's license with a digital STS, which we launched a year earlier. Now we have a very convenient service for car owners who sometimes forget documents: now they can present both a driver's license and STS to a police inspector directly on their smartphone. This is a very popular service: in January alone, car owners used digital copies of their CTC and driver's license four million times.

Together with the Ministry of Emergency Situations, we have launched digital rights to operate small boats, and this year, together with the Ministry of Agriculture, we will make the same digital rights to a smartphone for owners of snowmobiles and ATVs. This is very convenient: you can display all these documents directly on your smartphone.

At the end of December, together with the Ministry of Health, we launched the MHI digital policy, which also allows citizens to submit the relevant document on their smartphone when visiting medical organizations – now it is always at hand.
In January alone, almost one and a half million users used this service.

Vladimir Vladimirovich, we are working on a separate serious work to optimize the procedures for issuing a fan card certificate. We already have 400,000 people who have received a fan card, which is now a prerequisite for attending football matches. But our current procedure already provides that after submitting an electronic application, you still have to come to MFC to confirm your identity. Of course, this is not always convenient.

We have agreed with FSB on a technology that allows holders of biometric passports and our application not to contact MFC, but to do everything electronically, because we have a photo of the chip in our passport, and, accordingly, this photo allows you to verify the owner.

We have done the same in the mobile application of public services.
I told you that we have a large number of everyday situations where a passport as a document is not required in principle. For example, when making certain purchases or when entering some office centers, it is unreasonable for a user to always request an original passport, so we have developed such a technology.

It works very simply: you upload a photo from a biometric passport directly to your smartphone, then a QR code is generated that you represent, and the one who wants to check your grounds, respectively, from the Gosuslugi mobile application also checks either your age or surname, first name, patronymic through the QR code. According to our understanding, this will allow in 80 percent of cases – in such everyday, simple situations - to use a smartphone instead of the original passport.

Our technology is fully consistent with FSB, implemented as safe and secure. It seems to us that we can probably return to the issue of its legalization and mass application. To do this, according to our colleagues from the FSB and other agencies involved in this work, in order to give it a powerful impetus, we would like to ask you to issue a decree that will determine possible cases of using such a digital identity card on a smartphone as a passport replacement. There are few such situations -we do not cancel the passport, but only once again: in everyday relationships, it is probably possible in some cases to turn off the passport and use a smartphone for this.

Vladimir Vladimirovich, they wanted to ask you to instruct us to submit such a draft decree together with the FSB and other interested agencies before the first of May. This will allow to legalize this technology.


Vladimir Putin: Please.

The sooner the better. If you noticed, Maksut Igorevich recently, during one of the events, talked with a girl who drew attention to the difficulties for the disabled, for pensioners, for children, so that they themselves make up fan cards and, accordingly, tools related to the presentation of these cards. Therefore, of course, such services are in great demand, and we just need to accelerate their implementation.

Maksut Shadaev: Thank you, Vladimir Vladimirovich.

Vladimir Putin: Thank you. Please prepare these projects. …„

March 21 , 2023

At the same time, I would like to emphasize that Russia and China are pursuing an independent and independent foreign policy. We are working together to create a more just and democratic multipolar world order, which should be based on the central role of the UN, its Security Council, international law, the purposes and principles of the UN Charter.

We consider it important to continue to maintain close coordination within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and BRICS, to work together with the G20, APEC and many other multilateral platforms and, of course, to continue the "belt, one road" with a view to the formation of a large Eurasian partnership in the future.

We will strengthen cooperation within the framework of multilateral structures, including the SCO, BRICS, G20, encourage true multilateralism and contribute to the recovery of the world economy in the post-pandemic period, create a constructive force in the formation of a multipolar world and improve the global governance system, make a greater contribution to global food security, energy security and continuity of production and supply chains, joint efforts to form a community with a common destiny for humanity.

In Multipolar We Trust

Decree on the approval of the Concept of Foreign Policy of the Russian Federation
Vladimir Putin signed a decree "On the approval of the Concept of Foreign Policy of the Russian Federation."

March 31, 2023

* * *

The concept of the foreign policy of the Russian Federation

I. General provisions

II. The modern world: the main trends and prospects of development

Humanity is going through an era of revolutionary changes. The formation of a more just, multipolar world continues. The non-equilibrium model of world development, which for centuries ensured the outstripping economic growth of colonial powers by appropriating the resources of dependent territories and states in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere, is irreversibly going into the past. Sovereignty is being strengthened and the competitive capabilities of non-Western world powers and regional leaders are increasing. The structural restructuring of the world economy, its transfer to a new technological basis (including the introduction of artificial intelligence technologies, the latest information and communication, energy, biological technologies and nanotechnologies), the growth of national consciousness, cultural and civilizational diversity and other objective factors accelerate the processes of redistribution of development potential in favor of new centers of economic growth and geopolitical influence, contribute to the democratization of international relations.

[ :D :D :D :D :D ]

15. Taking into account the long-term trends in the development of the situation in the world, the national interests of the Russian Federation in the foreign policy sphere are:
7) promoting the sustainable development of the Russian economy on a new technological basis;
9) environmental protection, conservation of natural resources and rational use of natural resources, adaptation to climate change.

19. In order to facilitate the adaptation of the world order to the realities of a multipolar world, the Russian Federation intends to give priority attention to:

3) restoring the role of the UN as a central coordinating mechanism in coordinating the interests of the UN Member states and their actions to achieve the goals of the UN Charter;
7) ensuring fair access for all states to the benefits of the world economy and the international division of labor, as well as to modern technologies in the interests of fair and equitable development (including solving the problems of global energy security and food security);

Environmental protection and global health

41. In order to preserve a favorable environment, improve its quality, and rationally adapt Russia to climate change in the interests of modern and future generations, the Russian Federation intends to give priority attention to:

1) to promote scientifically based non-politicized international efforts to limit the negative impact on the environment (including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions), to preserve and increase the absorption capacity of ecosystems;

2) expanding cooperation with allies and partners in the interests of countering the politicization of international environmental and climate activities, primarily its implementation for the purposes of unfair competition, interference in the internal affairs of States and restrictions on the sovereignty of States with respect to their natural resources;

3) support of the right of each state to independently choose the optimal mechanisms and methods for environmental protection and adaptation to climate change;

4) to promote the development of uniform, understandable and fair global rules for environmental and climate regulation, taking into account the Paris Agreement of December 12, 2015, adopted on the basis of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of May 9, 1992.;

5) to increase the effectiveness of international cooperation in the development and implementation of advanced technologies that contribute to the preservation of a favorable environment and improve its quality, adaptation of states to climate change;

42. In order to promote the health and social well-being of the peoples of Russia and other States, the Russian Federation intends to give priority attention to:

1) to increase the effectiveness of international cooperation in the field of healthcare and to counteract its politicization, including within the framework of international organizations;

2) consolidation of international efforts to prevent the spread of dangerous infectious diseases, timely and effective response to sanitary and epidemiological emergencies, fight against chronic non-communicable diseases, overcome the socio-economic consequences of pandemics and epidemics;

3) to increase the effectiveness of international scientific research in the field of healthcare, primarily aimed at the development and introduction of new means of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

" The structural restructuring of the world economy, its transfer to a new technological basis (including the introduction of artificial intelligence technologies, the latest information and communication, energy, biological technologies and nanotechnologies), the growth of national consciousness, cultural and civilizational diversity and other objective factors accelerate the processes of redistribution of development potential in favor of new centers of economic growth and geopolitical influence, contribute to the democratization of international relations."
Do you understand what he says here (signs what the authors of the doctrine have said)?
He says the Fourth Industrial Revolution is contributing to the New World Order.

Perhaps Schwab wrote the doctrine (or helped)? :D

Victoria Abramchenko held a meeting of the anti-epizootic commission

March 30, 2023

Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko held a meeting of the anti-epizootic commission.

"By the end of 2022, almost two times fewer ASF outbreaks were registered in Russia than a year earlier. At the same time, taking into account the persistent problems of the Asian and Transcaucasian countries bordering Russia with African swine fever, avian influenza, foot-and-mouth disease, there are still threats of the introduction and spread of these diseases across the territory of the Russian Federation. Therefore, the Government has approved a new action plan to improve veterinary safety. The document contains a set of organizational, anti–epizootic measures, strict implementation of which will prevent the occurrence and reduce the spread of particularly dangerous animal diseases," Victoria Abramchenko said.

Diseases such as African swine fever (ASF), highly pathogenic avian influenza, foot-and-mouth disease, and other animal diseases are becoming the main threats to the effective development of animal husbandry and the maintenance of veterinary safety.

The Deputy Prime Minister instructed the Ministry of Agriculture and Rosselkhoznadzor to ensure control over the implementation of the new veterinary safety plan by the regions.

In order to ensure veterinary safety, it is necessary to actively involve new subjects of Russia. As Victoria Abramchenko noted, in order to support veterinary safety and disease prevention, the Rosselkhoznadzor transferred more than 180 thousand doses of animal vaccines (against rabies, anthrax, avian influenza, Newcastle disease and highly pathogenic avian influenza) to the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, as well as the Donetsk People's Republic.

Here, for example, because I have already published this about bugs in Russia:
This is from a reputable Russian press, mass media. And here's what the same thing looks like in the eyes of some of Russia's conservative patriotic media. (Whoever wants to compare this with the well-known "pro-Russian" Western alternative media; and make the difference.)

21 September 2022
Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov confirmed the worst expectations of patriots who feared that instead of real import substitution, he was called upon to move the global agenda of “sustainable development”, “zero emissions”, “eco-friendly food” in the Government of the Russian Federation, etc. The day before, he said that Russian citizens will have to get used to eating meat… from fly larvae. And the argument was simply ironclad – “this is a global trend in which Russia keeps up with the times.” And the fact that it may not be so tasty and not so useful is nonsense, because the main thing is to “work with the mentality and try.” And naturally, retailers like magnit, who are tightly sitting on the “green agenda”, have already stated that they are ready to increase capacity for vegetable “meat”. And it is in this direction that the Government intends to allocate cheap R&D loans. Alas, with such import substitution, we will soon slide to complete Schwbianism, and the real sector will be finally multiplied by zero.

According to him, Manturov tried vegetable meat twice – it was about the products of the Efko company, which began the production of vegetable meat back in 2020 (meat is made from vegetable proteins: soy, pea and rice).
“Indeed, it is very difficult to distinguish from natural meat — you have to be such a great gourmet to do it. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference”, said the head of the Ministry of industry:
“Manturov called to change the mentality and appreciate the place from maggot flies”

He says it is ready to adapt to manufacturers proposals on the use of plant protein as an alternative to animal – e.g. larvae. At the exhibition, such products-burgers with a cutlet, which consists of plant proteins with the addition of concentrate from larvae of Black Lion fly, vegetables and aquafaba (vegetable substitute for eggs), were presented by Modern Food Technology.

“It’s really amazing when the world uses protein from the larva of the black lion, and we, as I said, are keeping up with the times here. Probably, we need to work a little bit with the mentality of all of us present here, and the black lion can “come in”. But we need to try. Although, probably, a person adapts to everything, and to this too”, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade noted.

It should be noted that Manturov has not yet decided to taste meat from larvae, but he noted that it is necessary to support the cultivation of raw materials alternative to meat, including engineering, with preferential loans, R&D benefits (research and development work), “to provide support jointly with the Ministry of Agriculture and other federal executive authorities in terms of regulation”.

And where in reality this breeze blows from, we think many have already understood… As recently as mid-August 2022, the European Commission invited EU residents to eat insects, which caused a violent outrage among Europeans. Well, what to do, cows and pigs fart a lot, emit a lot of methane, carbon dioxide … and this makes us all very bad, so it’s time to close the shop – the globalist gentlemen thought.

And of course, the WEF, headed by Klaus Schwab and Co., does not pass by – back in May 2021, humanity was called upon to eat worms there. WEF program article titled “Worms for Dinner”. …And London promptly joined the topic, starting to grow insects specifically to feed Africans.

In general, Mr. Manturov, you have already earned a medal from Schwab, Gutierrez, Bill Gates, who of course is at the forefront in the field of investments and promotion of artificial meat. Maybe it’s time to move to the same Davos for permanent residence in order to be very close to the your owners? And we will somehow be here without you, we will cultivate our vast arable land, and raise chickens with cows.

Denis Manturov visited the Military Innovation Technopolis "Era"

March 17, 2023
The military-industrial complex

Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, First Deputy Defense Minister Ruslan Tsalikov and Deputy Defense Minister Army General Pavel Popov visited the Military Innovation Technopolis "Era".

YURGPU has created a device for producing "green" hydrogen and electricity
Now scientists plan to start scaling and increasing the power of the device

Rostov-ON-Don, March 31. /tass/. Chemists of the South Russian State Polytechnic University (YURGPU (NPI) have created a safe and environmentally friendly power plant with which it is possible to obtain "green" hydrogen and electricity from water, the press service of the university told TASS on Friday.

"As part of the project, we developed a device that allowed us to reduce the "solar cell - electrolyzer - fuel cell" scheme to one device. During the day, the device works as a photoelectrolyzer: under the influence of sunlight, water decomposes into oxygen and hydrogen. And at night, in the absence of lighting, the device can work as a fuel cell, using hydrogen as fuel to generate electricity," the words of the project manager, Doctor of Technical Sciences Alexandra Kuriganova are quoted in the message.

It is noted that the project was supported by the Russian Scientific Foundation, the created power plant is safe and environmentally friendly. Now scientists plan to start scaling and increasing its capacity.

"The development of scientists of the South Russian State Polytechnic University (NPI) promises to become one of the implemented technologies for obtaining and using "green" hydrogen in conditions of global depletion of fossil energy sources," the university added.

Sirius has developed a new vaccine against tuberculosis
This is a ribonucleic acid-based vaccine

SOCHI, March 29. /tass/. Scientists at Sirius University have developed a vaccine against tuberculosis based on ribonucleic acid. In the future, it can replace the BCG vaccine, the Sirius press service reported on Wednesday.

"Specialists of the Scientific Center for Translational Medicine of Sirius University have
developed a multi-epitope mRNA vaccine that can become an effective drug for the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis. The effectiveness of the development is proved by the results of in vivo tests. <...> The results of tests conducted at Sirius University showed that when a multiepitope mRNA vaccine is administered, a pronounced T-cell (immune - approx. TASS) the answer," the message says.

In 2023, scientists will conduct a repeat experiment on mice to confirm the results. If the high efficacy is confirmed, the vaccine will move to the stage of preclinical safety studies on non-human monkeys. As explained in the press service, "mRNA vaccines may have higher efficacy compared to vaccines based on protein antigens." "At the same time, the cost of their production and scaling is cheaper, since a cell-free operating method is used for production," the report says.

According to Roman Ivanov, director of the Scientific Center for Translational Medicine at Sirius University, the only currently approved BCG tuberculosis vaccine does not provide full protection against pulmonary tuberculosis in adults. "The use of BCG for adult revaccination is not recommended by the World Health Organization, since the risk of side effects outweighs the possible benefits. <...> Our scientific group, within the framework of the grant, has set itself the task of developing an effective RNA vaccine for the immunotherapy of antibiotic-resistant cases of tuberculosis, which are becoming more widespread," Ivanov's words are quoted in the message.

According to the university, more than 1.5 million people die from tuberculosis every year in the world, and since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global incidence rate has increased by 3-6%. At the same time, there is an increase in cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, which cannot be treated with known drugs

The work of the 12th Russian Internet Governance Forum began.
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko welcomed the participants of RIGF 2022 and wished them fruitful work. He noted that RIGF is one of the largest events in Eastern Europe for the development of the global network, as well as an important annual event for the entire Internet community and part of the Global Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

“This gives us the opportunity to discuss current digital trends at RIGF and collaborate within the global agenda. The Internet is a worldwide network that must be maintained together. Today it is necessary to create new international norms of responsible behavior in the digital environment, and Russia is ready to take part in building an open space of trust on the Internet as a responsible international partner,” Dmitry Chernyshenko said.

Tatyana Matveeva, Head of the Office of the President of the Russian Federation for the Development of Information and Communication Technologies and Communications Infrastructure, noted that this year the Forum is being held at a difficult time of unprecedented challenges. “However, despite significant external pressure and massive cyberattacks, the local IT industry has proven to be capable and strong. We are closely monitoring the progress of the UN Secretary General’s attempt to create a Global Digital Compact due to the increasing understanding of the necessity to establish uniform rules for the game. I’m hoping that RIGF participants will be able to contribute to its growth as well as the growth of global network regulation internationally,” she said.

The first day of the 12th Russian Internet Governance Forum ended.

The RIGF 2022 work program was opened with the section “Global Digital Compact: A Chance For Fair Play?”, announced at the opening of the Forum. Together with moderator Roman Chukov (Center for Global IT-Cooperation), participants discussed the need to create new international norms and “rules of the game” in the field of ICT and the draft Global Digital Compact. The experts stressed that today the massive removal of Russian apps from online stores, the active dissemination of fakes and false information and the infringement of the rights of ordinary network users are of serious concern.

The regulation of ecosystems is one of today’s most critical matters. Elena Zaeva (Federal Antimonopoly Service) remarked that the FAS upholds the “net neutrality” principles developed and adopted in 2016. “Unlike other industries, the role of consumers in the digital sphere is great, and digital services and ecosystems cannot ignore their pressure. Therefore, we see our role, first of all, in creating conditions and clear rules of the game,” Elena Zaeva summed up.

During the section “Russian And World Experience In The Field Of Combating Destructive Content. The Role And Responsibility Of Digital Platforms”, moderator Anna Dupan (Institute for Problems of Legal Regulation, Faculty of Law, Higher School of Economics) invited experts to discuss one of the most controversial aspects of Internet Governance – content regulation. Participants also defined the criteria for destructive content and shared their experience in regulating it, as well as discussed the role of the state and digital platforms in countering the spread of inappropriate content.

According to Vladimir Todorov, Director of media development at Rambler&Co and editor-in-chief of, World practice demonstrates that social networks’ attempts to self- regulate do not always succeed, their algorithms for identifying harmful content are not always accurate, and there are simply insufficient moderators to handle the volume of information that is released. “One of the key tasks of journalism is to ask uncomfortable questions for which society must seek answers. For example, where does the request for such content come from. Perhaps, new destructive subcultures are being formed now, and children fall under their influence from loneliness and complete misunderstanding of parents and teachers. It is necessary to establish an institute of school psychologists so that adolescents have confidence in them. Together with teachers, they should conduct training seminars so that parents do not see mailings with the subject: “Attention, remove Genshin Impact from children’s phones.” Teenagers are already content producers, and if the state and social networks start to marginalize them, they will become atomized and want to leave this society for new, much more closed communication channels: encrypted messengers or private chats,” the speaker said.

The first day of RIGF 2022 was completed by the section “Preserving Human Agency In Ai-Enabled Internet”, which was moderated by Karen Kazarian (Internet Research Institute). The participants discussed how Internet technologies will develop under the influence of AI, what challenges users and society face, and what opportunities exist today to reduce risks when using AI. …The main conclusions of the section are: the person should have the final responsibility for any technology, fears about the disappearance of certain professions due to the introduction of AI are greatly exaggerated, because the pace of digital transformation and the introduction of AI allows you to quickly get a new profession if necessary, and all people should try maintain critical thinking in this challenging world."
29.09.2022 / 12th Russian Internet Governance Forum over

The second day of RIGF 2022 continued with a section on online education “Edtech: New Technologies In The New World. What Changes Have Occurred In The Educational Services Market And How People And Companies Have Adapted To Them”. Moderator Makar Goncharov (PulsarProduction) and participants discussed the situation and prospects of the Russian online education market, as well as what skills and educational programs will be in demand in the near future.

According to Alexey Polovinkin (Cyphrium) the Russian market needs new talent development programs and support for children and youth along the “school-university-profession” trajectory. Valentina Kurenkova (Netology) noted that it is also important to develop critical thinking, and Natalia Tsarevskaya, Skolkovo (Ed2 accelerator) added that it is necessary to learn how to work with information, make decisions and take responsibility.

Summing up the results of RIGF 2022, Andrey Vorobyev noted that all proposals received from speakers and participants will be included in the final document of the Forum. And Vadim Glushchenko (Center for Global IT-Cooperation) invited his colleague Andrey Ignatiev to talk on the forthcoming collection of articles “Internet Today and Tomorrow”.

The interest in the subject of Internet governance is still significant, as Vadim Glushchenko stated. “Our international colleagues pay close attention to what is going on in the Russian Internet governance sector and much value the insight provided by our knowledgeable community. According to the outcomes of the previous RIGF 2022, we sought to make the forum’s agenda wide and rich. As a consequence, we can significantly contribute to the agenda of the future IGF,” he said.

Closing the forum, Andrey Vorobyev said: “Internet Governance Forums – both national, regional and global – work to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard. And the Russian Internet Governance Forum has always adhered to this principle. Therefore, we are completing RIGF 2022 and starting preparations for RIGF 2023. Thanks to everyone who helped us hold this event, thanks to all speakers and participants – and see you in 2023!”

We thank the Organizing Committee and Program Committee of the forum, as well as all speakers and participants for their active work!"


“This gives us the opportunity to discuss current digital trends at RIGF and collaborate within the global agenda. The Internet is a worldwide network that must be maintained together. Today it is necessary to create new international norms of responsible behavior in the digital environment, and Russia is ready to take part in building an open space of trust on the Internet as a responsible international partner,” Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko said. /September 28, 2022

"... And all we hear is, the West is insisting on a rules-based order. Where did that come from anyway? Who has ever seen these rules? Who agreed or approved them? Listen, this is just a lot of nonsense, utter deceit, double standards, or even triple standards! They must think we’re stupid.

Russia is a great thousand-year-old power, a whole civilisation, and it is not going to live by such makeshift, false rules. (Applause.)


Today, we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, in order to leave dictate and despotism in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exceptionalism of whoever it may be and the suppression of other cultures and peoples is inherently criminal, and that we must close this shameful chapter. The ongoing collapse of Western hegemony is irreversible. And I repeat: things will never be the same."

The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is the global multi-stakeholder forum for dialogue on Internet governance issues which is convened by the United Nations Secretary-General

Internet Governance Forum 2022

The 17th IGF, under the overarching theme Resilient Internet for a Shared Sustainable and Common Future, will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 28 November to 2 December 2022. The meeting programme is guided by five themes drawn from the Global Digital Compact in the UN Secretary-General’s Our Common Agenda report.
The IGF 2022 programme will be organized according to the following five themes:

Connecting All People and Safeguarding Human Rights
Avoiding Internet Fragmentation
Governing Data and Protecting Privacy
Enabling Safety, Security and Accountability
Addressing Advanced Technologies, including AI
4. Enabling Safety, Security and Accountability

The security of the Internet is under threat in a number of ways from various actors. Traditional cybersecurity deals with the protection of networks, devices and data from unauthorised access or criminal use. This encompasses the ongoing problem of cyber attacks, whether they are perpetrated by individuals or state-sanctioned, and whether the targets are civic, commercial or governmental, and which so far has been compounded by the absence of broad and binding cybersecurity agreements.
Our understanding ofsafety and security should be widened to include the persistent challenge of online misinformation and disinformation. In recent years, both have been factors in aggravating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and have posed significant risks to electoral processes around the world. This has made clear the need for accountability criteria for misleading content. …”

In short, all the nasty globalists-state and corporate players (check out which partners, stakeholders), using AI tools, are making progress in their solutions to the problem of how to shut up mouth us up about whatever they think is wrong: covid, vaccines, great reset, eugenics, digital ID, CBDC, social credit systems, transhumanism, climate change; and also the discussion of whether Russia is complicit or not, is there a global conspiracy of all of them against us…

What Does Russia think about this now, in view of the new geopolitical reality in which it has condemned the crimes of globalists and cut ties with them? Is they in on this?

IGF Worldwide Background

The problem of Internet governance was at Tunis Agenda for the Information Society at World Summit on the Information Society held in Geneva in 2003 and in Tunis in 2005, resulting in Information Society program approved in Tunis that year. The program oversees all key issues of Internet governance, including the definition of Internet governance itself, and contains a decision to start a series of Internet Governance Forums worldwide. (
The first IGF meeting held in Athens in 2006 provided a new ground for discussing the issues of Internet governance globally. IGF is a forum for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue, its establishment approved by the UN Secretary-General.
Paragraph 72 of the Tunis Agenda:

…72. We ask the UN Secretary-General, in an open and inclusive process, to convene, by the second quarter of 2006, a meeting of the new forum for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue—called the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). The mandate of the Forum is to:

Discuss public policy issues related to key elements of Internet governance in order to foster the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development of the Internet;

Facilitate the exchange of information and best practices, and in this regard make full use of the expertise of the academic, scientific and technical communities;
Strengthen and enhance the engagement of stakeholders in existing and/or future Internet governance mechanisms, particularly those from developing countries;
Identify emerging issues, bring them to the attention of the relevant bodies and the general public, and, where appropriate, make recommendations;
Help to find solutions to the issues arising from the use and misuse of the Internet, of particular concern to everyday users;
Internet governance is based on a multi-stakeholder dialogue, which ideally includes government, society, businesses, academic circle and techology professionals.
Today, IGF worldwide has become a new way of addressing the problems of Internet governance as a multi- stakeholder institution created by an UN General Secretary resolution. The regional and national IGF forums held in different countries deal with technical, administrative and legal issues of governing the Internet in various countries and regions.

Speakers and participants of RIGF 2022 will discuss the development of the Internet and the formation of its management ecosystem, the problems of cybersecurity and the protection of critical infrastructure, counteracting the spread of destructive content, the introduction of a global digital tax for transnational corporations, new technologies in education, decentralized applications and Web 3.0, the use of artificial intelligence, development global IT cooperation and other topical issues.

Russian Internet Governance Forum to be held on September 28-29 online
Speakers and participants of RIGF 2022 will discuss the development of the Global Digital Compact proposed by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, regulation of the Internet and its ecosystems, the role of digital platforms in ensuring the right to access information, as well as censorship by these platforms, new technologies in EdTech and other topical issues.

28 September
Section 1. Global Digital Compact: a chance for fair play?

The question of the need to revise the classical approaches to global cooperation in the field of ICT and creation new international norms and “rules of the game” arises in the context of the rapid development of digital technologies and the emergence of new social and technological trends. That is why one of the most relevant initiatives on the agenda is the development of the Global Digital Compact, a document proposed personally by UN Secretary-General António Guterres in 2021 in his report “Our Common Agenda”. Will this document be the first step towards a future where technologies used for good create the conditions for a more just and equitable digital world order?

Section 3. Russian and world experience in the field of combating destructive content. The role and responsibility of digital platforms

When digital platforms work with content, risks arise for all entities involved in the relevant legal relationship, especially for users and the platforms themselves. On the one hand, platforms today as digital public spaces play an important role in ensuring freedom of speech. On the other hand, they have the power of censorship (their algorithms regulate access to information, and their filters can automatically remove content that is considered confidential, but not necessarily illegal), which causes public discontent and opposition from states.

In this context, the attention of interested players around the world is riveted to the problem of destructive content. The importance of striking a balance between ensuring equal access to information on the Internet for everyone and the need to counter the spread of destructive content is beyond doubt. But what form of regulation will be optimal for each individual country or region? Will it be up to the platforms themselves, or up to national governments, or will common global approaches be adopted? What approaches are there in the world to the definition and categorization of destructivity

Section 4. Preserving human agency in AI-enabled Internet

The large-scale use of artificial intelligence in Internet technologies creates new challenges for users and society, whether it is ensuring human rights and freedoms, protecting the privacy of citizens, the emergence of various types of discrimination, or the impact on a competitive market. The more tasks delegated to algorithms, the more acute the issues of security and responsible use of AI systems become. The challenges associated with the use of AI are being answered by various recommendations, principles, standards and technological solutions that are designed to reduce the level of existing risks and ensure the efficient, reliable and safe operation of algorithms.

At the same time, the question of the influence of the Internet and artificial intelligence technologies on civilizational development is largely unexplored; preservation of human dignity and human autonomy. The ancient Greeks believed that writing negatively affects the intellect – people do not need to remember important things. What will the digital world of the future look like, where more and more cognitive and computational tasks are at the mercy of AI, what will remain in this world for a person, and what should those who would like to keep the current state of things do?"
