UPD: 09/24/2014 The schedule for turning off the light in Kiev is approved
Today at 12:00, according to the command of the dispatcher GP NEK Ukrenergo, in order to ensure reliable operation of the United Energy System of Ukraine (UES) in the imbalance between the consumption and production of electricity, emergency outage schedules in the city of Kiev were used.
This was reported at the enterprise, informs LIGABіznesІnform
PJSC Kyivenergo, providing dispatcher discipline, executes the commands of the main dispatcher and, accordingly, introduces these schedules for emergency shutdowns of industrial enterprises and organizations that do not belong to the field of life support, social and housing stock in Kiev. Total power 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 power grids of the NEK Ukrenergo are energy deficient due to the shortage of coal in the warehouses of thermal power plants. Duration and volume of power outages are regulated by the dispatcher GP NEK "Ukrenergo". For its part, Kyivenergo OJSC guarantees that consumers will be disconnected from electricity for no more than two hours.
The schedules for emergency shutdowns are agreed with local authorities.
Earlier, Kyivenergo reported that it was not planned to disconnect the residents of Kiev from the power supply. However, in the event of unforeseen situations in the operation of the integrated energy system of Ukraine, in accordance with the order of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry and NEC Ukrenergo, it is possible to implement measures aimed at limiting electricity supply.
UPD: 09/24/2014 In the UK, threaten to sue FIFA for granting Russia and Qatar the right to World Cup
The decision of FIFA to grant Russia and Qatar the right to host the World Cup caused a resonance in the world community. In particular, the British parliamentarians suspect the main football organization of corruption.
This writes the BBC.
The British parliamentarian from the Conservative Party, Damian Collins, said he intends to seek a judicial publication of a report on the investigation into the circumstances of the right of Russia and Qatar to host the 2018 and 2022 world championships.
"FIFA, it seems, believes that it is a self-government body that operates outside the jurisdiction of international and national law enforcement agencies," Collins writes.
After repeated statements in the media that Russia and Qatar got the right to the world championships thanks to the corruption scheme. American lawyer Michael Garcia initiated an investigation, which he completed in early September.
In turn, the leadership of FIFA said that the results of the investigation will be published no earlier than spring 2015, when the organization concludes new sponsorship contracts for the 2018 World Cup and 2022 World Cup.
Previously, the right to hold the championship from Russia was demanded by representatives of the majority in the German parliament.
Supporters of such a move argue that it could be "more effective than sanctions." The ex-coach of the Netherlands national 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 deny the Russians in the maintenance of offshore accounts
Chinese commercial banks began to refuse Russian clients to transfer funds through offshore accounts.
As ITAR-TASS informs referring to the agency’s letter from the bank. Russian businessmen and experts believe that the refusals are caused by the fear of worsening relations with the United States due to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
According to the head of the Beijing branch of the consulting group “Window to China” Alexander Zainigabdinov, in the last two weeks letters began to come to the clients of the group informing about the closure of accounts, as the company located in China cooperates with Russia.
“We regret to inform you that you must come to us in order to close your bank account. Since your company has something to do with Russia, we can no longer serve you, ”says a letter from the“ Offshore Accounts Department ”of the Chinese commercial bank Ping An addressed to a commercial company. They are also offered to transfer 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 suspended.
According Zaynigabdinova, 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 terrorists in Ukraine by Russian companies," the expert believes.
Companies registered in Hong Kong or in offshore zones may open accounts in a number of Chinese banks, which are excluded from currency control by Chinese regulators. These accounts are a popular payment mechanism for trading with China. After payment, the received company delivers the goods to its Russian partners.
Most of the intermediary companies involved in this trade scheme between Russia and China are controlled by Russian owners. Hong Kong is part of China, but has wide autonomy and its own currency. A group of Chinese banks working in this way with Russian clients includes Ping An, China Merchants and Bank of Communications.
In light of the sanctions imposed by the US and the EU, due to the events in Ukraine, representatives of the Russian authorities and entrepreneurs declare plans to expand trade and economic cooperation with China and other Asian countries.
UPD: 09/24/2014 Russian "Cossacks" - participants in the monetary protest in the Luhansk region: "If you are once again thinking about it, we will shoot the fuckin '." A PHOTO
September 22 in the city of Anthracite (Lugansk region) on the square near the city executive committee held a rally of local residents. According to one of the participants, the main question that interests people is when they will be promised salaries, pensions and social benefits.
However, the Russian "Cossacks", who seized power in the city, did not give people the answers to their questions, informs Informator.
“They said, once again you are going to - shoot the fuck. And so it did not start ... And while our Anthracite said, “Antratsitovskaya stanitsa”, “forget what miners' wages and pensions are to pensioners, not to mention social benefits,” “according to Antel (local TV station - ed.) They did not say anything for the rally ... But immediately they started giving out humanitarian aid ... They bribed people ... “Here is a can of cans, a couple of zhmenei croup and do not yell anymore, sit silently,” the residents of Anthracite commented on the social network. 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 hryvnia (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 terrorists, it was stated that people should not hope for salary and social benefits in the near future. Rovno residents said they would "have to be patient." How long it will be necessary to “endure” did not specify. According to those present, this message did not arouse much enthusiasm at the meeting.
