UPD: 09/24/2014 Schedule for blackouts in Kiev approved
Today at 12:00, at the command of the dispatcher of the SE NPK Ukrenergo, to ensure reliable operation of the unified energy system of Ukraine (UES) in conditions of an imbalance between electricity consumption and production, emergency shutdown schedules were applied in the city of Kiev.
This was reported at the enterprise, informs LIGABusinessInform
PJSC "Kyivenergo", providing dispatch discipline, executes the commands of the chief dispatcher and accordingly introduces these schedules for emergency shutdowns of industrial enterprises and organizations that are not related to the sphere of life support, social and housing stock in Kiev. In total, capacity limits in Kiev are 52.6 MW (which is 3.8% of the total electricity consumption in the city).
The main reason for the introduction of schedules is that the central and northern energy systems of NEC Ukrenergo are energy-deficient due to a shortage of coal in the warehouses of thermal power plants. The duration and volume of power outages are regulated by the dispatcher of the SE NEC "Ukrenergo". For its part, Kyivenergo guarantees that consumers will be disconnected from the electric power for no more than two hours.
Schedules of emergency outages agreed with local authorities.
Earlier Kyivenergo reported that it was not planned to disconnect residents of Kiev from power supply. However, in the event of unforeseen situations in the operation of the unified energy system of Ukraine, in accordance with the order of the Ministry of Energy and Ukrenergo, it is possible to implement measures aimed at limiting the supply of electricity.
UPD: 09/24/2014 In the UK they threaten to sue FIFA for granting the Russian Federation and Qatar the right to the World Cup
The FIFA decision to grant Russia and Qatar the right to host the World Cup has resonated in the international community. In particular, British parliamentarians suspect the main football organization of corruption.
About this writes the BBC.
The British member of the Conservative Party, Damian Collins, said he intends to judicially seek the publication of a report investigating the circumstances of Russia and Qatar's right to host the 2018 and 2022 World Championships.
“FIFA seems to believe that it is a self-governing body that operates outside the jurisdiction of international and national law enforcement,” Collins writes.
After repeated statements in the media that Russia and Qatar received the right to world championships due to the corruption scheme. American lawyer Michael Garcia initiated an investigation, which ended in early September.
In turn, the FIFA leadership said that the results of the investigation will not be published until the spring of 2015, when the organization enters into new sponsorship contracts for the 2018 World Cup and 2022 World Cup.
Earlier, representatives of the majority in the German parliament demanded that Russia be taken away the right to host the championship.
Proponents of such a move argue that it could become "more effective than sanctions." An ex-coach of the Netherlands team John van't Schip also called for a boycott of the tournament.
Meanwhile, the International Football Federation rejected the idea of boycotting the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
UPD: 09/24/2014 Chinese banks began to refuse Russians to service offshore accounts
Chinese commercial banks have begun to deny Russian customers money transfers through offshore accounts.
As ITAR-TASS informs with reference to the letter at the disposal of the agency from the bank. Russian businessmen and experts believe that the refusals are caused by the fear of deterioration in relations with the United States due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
According to Alexander Zainigabdinov, head of the Beijing branch of the Window to China consulting group, letters have been sent to clients of the group in the last two weeks informing them of closing accounts, as the company based in China is cooperating with Russia.
“We regret to inform you that you must come to us in order to close your bank account. Since your company has some relation to Russia, we can no longer serve you, ”the letter from the“ Offshore Accounts Department ”of the Chinese commercial bank Ping An addressed to the commercial company says. It also suggests transferring all funds to another bank account.
On the websites of a number of companies specializing in opening offshore accounts in China, there are announcements that the service has been temporarily discontinued.
According to Zainigabdinov, a significant amount of profit of Chinese banks comes from operations with the United States.
“Therefore, the Chinese began to exercise excessive caution in working with Russia, so as not to be accused of financing terrorist companies in Ukraine by Russian companies,” the expert believes.
Companies registered in Hong Kong or in offshore zones can open accounts in a number of Chinese banks that are removed from the currency controls of Chinese regulators. These accounts are a popular settlement mechanism when trading with China. After payment, the company that received the goods delivers it to the Russian partners.
Most intermediary companies involved in this scheme of trade between Russia and China are controlled by Russian owners. Hong Kong is part of China, but has broad autonomy and its own currency. The group of Chinese banks working in this way with Russian customers includes Ping An, China Merchants and Bank of Communications.
In light of US and EU sanctions due to events in Ukraine, Russian officials and entrepreneurs have announced plans to expand trade and economic cooperation with China and other Asian countries.

And they also said while our Anthracite - “Antratsitovskaya stanitsa”, “forget what salaries to miners and pensions are for pensioners, not to mention social payments”, “they didn’t say anything for the rally on Antel (local TV channel - ed.) ... But immediately they began to issue humanitarian aid .... They bribed people ... “Here’s a can of canned food, a couple of jelly cereals and don’t yell anymore, sit in silence,” residents of Anthracite commented on this event on social networks. Earlier it was reported that the Komsomolskaya mine was closed in Anthracite. The leaders of the terrorist republic told the miners that now they will receive a total salary of 1,200 hryvnias (which is much less than what they previously received). In protest, the miners in full force did not go to work.
And in Rovenki, at a meeting of local residents with the leadership of the terrorists, it was stated that people should not hope in the near future for salaries and social benefits.
