  • EU carbon prices rose above €50 per tonne for the first time this week, boosted by the bloc’s new target to slash emissions faster this decade than previously expected, and increased activity in the market from financial investors.

    Analysts expect that goal will stoke further price increases, with Brussels due to propose reforms in July to the EU emissions trading system (ETS), which forces polluters like factories and power plants to buy permits when they pollute.

    Analysts say CO2 prices need to reach near €100 per tonne to make green industrial technologies like renewable hydrogen fuel competitive with polluting alternatives.

    This is capitalism in purest form, where parasites pay to fake scientists to make market out of nothing.

    As much as i don't like it i've seen these small velociraptors many times all around.

  • Certain types of fittings have increased in price by 42% since March. The cost of sheet steel and other rolled metal products of the construction assortment also continues to grow, since December 2020, to date, this has more than doubled the cost of some items. Moreover, after the metal, the cost of other building materials began to rise. So, plywood, road bitumen and expanded polystyrene have risen in price since December 2020 by more than 50%, lumber, brick, aerated concrete blocks, finishing material - by more than 20%.

    The situation in the building materials market is of concern. The introduction of an increased duty on the export of scrap at the suggestion of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia did not give any result.

    The main reason for the growth in the cost of rolled metal is the demand for it abroad.

  • Electricity

    For the second year in a row, starting in 2019, the price of electricity for industrial consumers in Russia has exceeded similar indicators in the United States and a number of EU countries. These are the results of the annual comparison of final prices for industrial consumers in Russia and abroad, carried out by the Association of Energy Consumers.

    Until 2017, the price of electricity for industry in Russia was less than 5 US cents / kWh and was one of the lowest in comparison with prices for industrial consumers in European countries and the United States. But with the start of large-scale surcharges for the construction of new power plants and the concomitant growth of other non-market payments, including cross-subsidization in the wholesale market and in the tariffs of the electric grid complex, the price of electricity in Russia is growing, outstripping inflation, while often exceeding inflation by multiples.

    At the end of 2020, the average price of electricity for consumers connected at a high voltage level to regional distribution networks (this is about 70% of all industrial electricity consumption in the country) amounted to 7.34 US cents per kilowatt-hour. The price of electricity for consumers connected to the main power grids (about 30% of industrial electricity consumption) amounted to US 4.52 per kilowatt-hour.

    For comparison, in the United States in 2020, industrial consumers supplied their industries with electricity at an average of 6.66 US cents per kilowatt-hour, which is 10% cheaper than for the vast majority of industrial enterprises in Russia. This gap appeared in 2019, but was not as noticeable as at the end of 2020. The average final price of electricity for industry in the United States in 2019 was 5% cheaper than in Russia.

    Over the past two years, energy prices for industry in Russia have also exceeded prices in France and Norway, and the average energy prices for industry in Norway in 2020 turned out to be 2.2 times lower than Russian ones. In 2020, the average price of electricity for industry in Russia for the first time exceeded the corresponding price level in Spain and Finland. The reason for this was not only the growth of Russian energy prices, but also a noticeable decrease in the price of electricity in these countries - in Spain from 8.74 US cents per kilowatt-hour in 2019 to 7.21 US cents per kilowatt-hour in 2020. and in Finland from 8 US cents per kilowatt hour in 2019 to 7.19 US cents per kilowatt hour in 2020.

    In recent years, there has been a general trend towards a decrease in energy prices abroad, in 2020 this trend became more pronounced due to a decrease in electricity consumption due to the pandemic. In Russia, during the 2020 pandemic, energy prices, on the contrary, continued to grow, despite the reduction in electricity consumption.

  • Agrarians of Stavropol region are asking the authorities to fix prices for mineral fertilizers. During the year, only ammophos, which is necessary for the autumn sowing of winter crops, has risen in price by more than 75%. Other regions also faced an increase in the price of fertilizers from 15 to 40%, they say in the Russian Grain Union.

    If prices do not freeze, in the fall, farmers will be faced with a choice: either to reduce the sowing area, or to sow the same amount, but apply less fertilizer - then the grain harvest may decrease, and this threatens to increase prices for grain, flour and bread.

  • According to the Federal Bailiff Service, there are almost 19 million debtors in Russia with a large amount of debt, of which 7 million are not allowed to travel abroad.

  • A person who does not systematically take care of his health should bear responsibility, including financial, said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.

    "If a person systematically does not want to take care of his health, then, probably, in part, some, including, financial responsibility for this should bear," - said Rakova at the Moscow International Oncological Forum.

    The Social Development Complex of the capital explained that the words of the vice-mayor sounded against the background of measures taken by the Moscow government to motivate people to monitor their health. If motivation does not bring results, only then it is proposed to increase responsibility for this.

    "The vice-mayor suggested a possible discussion in the future with the expert and medical community of the idea of ​​partial co-financing by a citizen of the costs of his treatment, if the neglected condition was the result of a systematic non-visit to a doctor, failure to undergo examinations," the press service explained.

    This is how Velociraptor talk.

  • Alexander Iltyakov, a State Duma deputy from the ruling party who voted to raise the retirement age, said: “And in general, let's be honest. What is a pension? If person suddenly survived until retire age - this is an insured event. You have already crossed the threshold that we measured you to live: 60-65 years. 50% should not survive at all past this age. This is how the pension system works - we calculated everything mathematically ”.

    Alexander Iltyakov is an entrepreneur from the Kurgan region, and love libertarian ideology very much.

  • Some quotes of Kaha Bendukidze (dead oligarch)

    "The point of libertarianism is to say that the government's attempt to do something good is very harmful."

    "Not only factories, factories, restaurants and hotels should be privately owned, but also what is considered the" sacred cow "of the state: hospitals, schools, universities."

    “For us, privatization was heavenly manna. It meant that we can buy what we want from the state on favorable terms. And we acquired a fat piece from the industrial capacities of Russia. It turned out to be easier to capture Uralmash than the warehouse in Moscow. We bought this plant for a thousandth of its actual value. "

    “Symbols are very important. A slow farewell to Lenin, both in word and in deed, especially in words, is a difficult case. When, in fact, it’s okay: if we said goodbye in words, then in fact we’ll say goodbye sooner or later. And when they don't say goodbye either in words or in deeds, it is, of course, difficult. " "

  • Russia to supply UNICEF with doses of satellite V for 110 million people

    Russia has signed an agreement to supply the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) with Sputnik V vaccine for 110 million people, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said Thursday.

    And they supplied similar amount already.

    It is just one issue - situation with vaccination locally is horrible, with media formally promoting it but in reality they constantly tell that COVID will pass without it, organization is very bad. All this is done to sell more doses abroad and get money.

  • Another nice guys:

    In connection with the growth of quotations for metals and hardware on the world market, the largest metallurgical corporations raised domestic prices for Russian companies that are building facilities at the expense of the federal budget. The rise in price amounted to about 100 billion rubles, which will have to be compensated by taxpayers.

    In 2020, the metallurgy, despite the covid crisis, showed very good financial results. The 13 largest companies (Norilsk Nickel, Rusal, Severstal, MMK, Mechel and others) provided 61% of the industry's tax revenues of 95 billion rubles. With production falling by 3%, dividends of 883 billion rubles were paid, 31% more than in the pre-crisis 2019.

    In the first quarter of 2021, the production decline was still 3%. However, the doubling of prices for metallurgical products ensured a 1.9-fold increase in tax revenues for the aforementioned 13 organizations - from 50 billion a year ago to 97 billion rubles according to forecasts for the first half of the year.

    The total amount of projected tax revenues in 2021 will be about 320 billion rubles. At the same time, the amount of dividends paid to private owners of metallurgical companies will increase by 56% and will rise to 1 trillion 384 billion rubles.

    You can literally see how hundreds of rich guys without any homeland make life of everyone worse. Because they can, because they are ruling class. For now.

  • Life is improving, just in the negative side

    The habit of saving money as of May 2021 remained with only 25% of Russians - this is 1.6 times less than in February 2021, when their share was 40%. Every fifth citizen plans to start forming savings sometimes in the future.

  • ProPublica undertook an analysis that has never been done before. We compared how much in taxes the 25 richest Americans paid each year to how much Forbes estimated their wealth grew in that same time period. We’re going to call this their true tax rate. …those 25 people saw their worth rise a collective $401 billion from 2014 to 2018. They paid a total of $13.6 billion in federal income taxes in those five years, the IRS data shows. That’s a staggering sum, but it amounts to a true tax rate of only 3.4%.

    Look, US rich shits also are not patriots at all. In fact they are most anti America part.

  • The financial assets of the 500 richest Russians have reached $ 640 billion. They own about the same amount of capital as the 114.6 million Russians. In terms of the uneven distribution of wealth, Russia is ahead of all developed countries, except for..... the United States.


  • The average headcount of Microsoft Rus LLC in 2016 (the earliest available statistics) was 501–1000 people. At the end of 2017, this figure dropped to 588 people, in 2018 - to 500 people, in 2019 - to 438 people, and in 2020 - to 392. New cuts are coming.

    At the same time profits and income rose around 2.5x. Most of the cuts are in the real support, localization and similar people. All of them are replaced by.. nothing, except some erratic untranslated help article on company servers.

    Does this oil price trend caused any changes in income of Mordor citizens?
    Yes - they are gradually being reduced in private business and are on same level for budget workers. If you account food and homes prices change they reduced around 20-25% YoY. So, where all all this hundreds of billions of USD?
    It is no secret, they never cross the border of Mordor and no one actually pay Mordor companies such prices for their oil.
    Out of each $73 paid per barrel they need to keep indefinitely around $35-45 on the bank account located in the bank of payer. Sometimes terms are different and this part is being kept in offshore or Switzerland banks.

  • The State Duma finally approved the law on the abolition from July 1, 2021 of the requirement to return foreign currency earnings to accounts in the Russian Federation for non-commodity exporting companies. This proposal was made on April 21 by the head of state.

    Exporters who supply non-primary goods and services abroad (food, IT, construction, etc.) can credit their foreign exchange earnings under foreign trade agreements directly to bank accounts abroad, bypassing authorized Russian banks.

    Russia increased non-commodity exports in 2020 by 4% to $ 161.3 billion. This is a new record for the export of non-energy goods - in 2018 the figure was $ 154.3 billion, in 2019 - $ 155.1 billion. In the structure of non-raw material exports, metal products accounted for 20.8%, mechanical engineering - 17.7%, food - 17.3%, chemical products and medicines - 16%.

    This law is part of the dealings with metropolies, especially with China. As China can't actually pay full prices for most of food exports, so they insist that at least 50% of the paid price must remain in Chinese banks, and best offers is if 80-90% remain in Chinese banks (so only 10-20% go to the business owners and all losses must be compensated by rising domestic prices).

    For energy exporters such scheme works since 1970s, as they all work using intermediary and while they can return 100% of export income it is not 100% of actual contract, but anything from 20 to around 50%, all else remains in the banks of intermediary country, usually it is Switzerland.

  • Mortality from diseases of the circulatory system in 2020 increased by 11.6% (or 97.3 thousand cases) after a decrease of 1.7% in 2019 and 0.8% in 2018, according to the final annual data. Rosstat.

    The excess deaths in 2020 from circulatory diseases (including coronary heart disease and stroke) accounted for about 29% of excess deaths overall this year. This is the second place after deaths from coronavirus infection (144.7 thousand cases, or 42.5% of the total increase in mortality in 2020).

    Excess mortality from circulatory diseases is due to the fact that, against the background of the pandemic, significantly fewer resources have been allocated to combat them: from re-profiling a number of hospitals for infection to overloading ambulances.

    Mortality "from old age" increased by 20% (plus 17.2 thousand), although in 2019 it decreased by 5.1%.

    This can be viewed as triumph of freedom of soul, as it no longer need this sinful body.

  • The head of the Russian environmental operator is in favor of transferring cement plants to waste incineration instead of carbon fuel; at the first stage, any filtration of carcinogenic air produced by the plants, all of which are located in cities, will not be used. The need to free up large volumes of fuel for export to our partners dictates extreme measures, he added. He proposed to compensate the expenses of enterprises for modernization by means of new taxes, namely eco-collection, from other producers, which, of course, will lead to a general increase in prices.

    As fuel export sets new records they seek new ways to increase it even more, as 2 yachts and multiple palaces in EU and US is not enough for them.
