Putin inaugurates leopard rehab center in Russia's N.Caucasus.
SOCHI/KRASNAYA POLYANA, September 19 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin symbolically released two rare leopards from cages to outdoor enclosures in the country's North Caucasus on Saturday to inaugurate a wildlife rehabilitation center.
The center in Krasnaya Polyana near the Black Sea resort of Sochi will be Russia's first hub for saving West Asian leopards from extinction. One of major tasks facing the new facility will be to repopulate the Russian Caucasus with leopards within the next 10 to 15 years.
The rare animals are on the Red List of Threatened Species compiled by the IUCN, or the International Union for Conservation of Nature. There are still some West Asian leopards in Iran and in the ex-Soviet states of Georgia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
The latter country is where the two leopards had been brought from by air. It is planned to catch more leopards for the new center in Turkmenistan and Iran, WWF Russia Sirector Igor Chestin said.
"It's good that the project is actually an international one," Putin said.
Earlier on Saturday, the Russian premier met with senior officials from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and showed them round Olympic facilities being built in Sochi.
The Russian resort city will host the 2014 Winter Olympics. An international investment forum has been running in Sochi since Thursday.
Jean-Claude Killy, who heads the IOC's Coordination Commission for the Sochi Olympics, and Gilbert Filli, the organization's Olympic Games Executive Director, inspected the construction of a motor road leading to Olympic facilities.
Gazprom Wins Final Approval to Build Disputed Petersburg Tower.
Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Gazprom, Russia’s natural-gas exporter, won final approval from the city of St. Petersburg to build what may become Europe’s tallest skyscraper, overcoming objections from local residents and UNESCO.
St. Petersburg Governor Valentina Matviyenko awarded Gazprom exemptions to the former czarist capital’s zoning laws that allow for the 400-meter (1,300-foot) Okhta Center project to proceed, the city government said in a statement today.
The skyscraper, which would surpass the 300-meter-tall Commerzbank AG headquarters in Frankfurt as Europe’s tallest building. Russian developer Mirax Group’s 506-meter Federation Tower project in Moscow has been hampered by delays and a lack of funding. The planned, 648-meter Russia Tower, another development in Moscow, was postponed indefinitely last year.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEN3swiFcYY There are fears that H1N1 has now mutated and resembles the Spanish flu virus that killed more than 50 million people at the beginning of the 20th century. Ukrainian doctors say the victims lungs are as black as charcoal. This prompts fresh concern that the swine flu virus has taken a deadly new form.
I think it was constructed as a biological weapon n profit generating milk cow for the pharmaceutical industry...I think its odd that after centuries of raisin piggies, allofasudden this "flu" strikes the world n voila several "cures" ready for the market...
Some US websites are claiming that hundreds of thousands or more Ukrainians have been infected with the pneumonic plague, much deadlier than H1N1. Some of the reports say it is genetically engineered pneumonic plague and way sprayed over the Ukraine by plane, known as "chemtrails". What do you Ukrainians or European know?

Swine flu pandemic is yet another conspiracy – Danish media.
RussiaToday.com Published 25 November, 2009, 15:49
Danish journalists claim that the World Health Organization and drug companies producing the swine flu vaccine are in partnership, and that the true nature of their relationship is shrouded in mystery.
“What we do know is that the pharmaceutical companies are present at the meetings of WHO expert groups, but what we don’t know is what they talk about. And another thing is that scientists who appear to be independent are also hired consultants working for the same pharmaceutical companies who produce the vaccines,” says Louise Voller, a journalist at the Danish Daily Information newspaper.

The reality behind the swine flu conspiracy.
RussiaToday.com Published 26 November, 2009, 15:12
The message is clear – we are all going to die from swine flu. It spreads fast, it is dangerous, and it must be feared – says the World Health Organization.
But worry not – there is a way to save yourself. Just get a flu shot – and purchase a remedy for the deadly virus. Those are the instructions from the WHO.
However, the WHO may find itself coughing up explanations, as more and more scientists and health researchers, and even journalists, are starting to question the organization’s motives behind raising the alert so quickly.
According to the Danish Daily Information newspaper, the WHO and pharmaceutical companies are suffering from the profit bug. Or, to put it simply, the chief health care organization in the world has teamed up with the drug makers to create a phantom monster – and to rake in cash by selling a remedy for it.
Plastered all over the front pages and headlines news, swine flu made its triumphant entrance into limelight, heralded as the next “in” virus, which threatened to bring an end to humanity as we know it.
Let's stop right there and talk numbers for a little bit.
So far, more than 3.5 million people have been reported to be infected with swine flu worldwide. More than 9,000 deaths have been confirmed.
In comparison: every year, up to one billion people get infected with seasonal flu, with up to 500 million deaths. These numbers come from the World Health Organization, but they never make headline news for some reason.
On June 11 of this year, the WHO declared swine flu a pandemic. But few know that, right before doing that, the Organization changed its definition, taking out the word “deadly” from it.
Aleksander Saversky, the chair of the Patient's Rights Protection League, was one of those who did pay attention. He says it is clear that the WHO dramatized the situation around the H1N1 virus. In an interview to RT, Saversky speculated that it is due to the WHO's close ties with the world's major pharmaceutical companies.
And recently, Danish journalists conducted their own research, which resulted in accusations that the WHO, and scientists who appear to be independent are, in fact, on pharmaceutical companies' payroll.
Saversky points out that the WHO declared the status of pandemic when only a few thousand people were infected with it – something that is highly illogical, he says, considering the hundred thousand more cases of seasonal flu never gets paid such high attention.
The virus was reported to be extremely deadly. Parallels were drawn to the Spanish Flu, which killed roughly 50 million people worldwide in the span of six months.
As panic spread, people rushed to clinics for Tamiflu – $145 a pop and by prescription only in the US – and for vaccinations, which range anywhere from $10 to $50. And despite the fact that many have lost their jobs in the financial crisis, and were left without health insurance, vaccinations and pharmaceutical sales skyrocketed. Nobody wants to die a grisly death from the supposedly new virus.
Aleksander Saversky warns the hullaballoo over swine flu is akin to the fable of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” He says that, because of this hype, the next time a truly dangerous virus comes about, no one will take any precautions. Fooled once already by swine flu, people will ignore the warnings and fall prey to a more dangerous – and deadly virus.
In fact, vaccinating people from swine flu during the seasonal flu outbreak, in Saversky’s opinion, is criminal. People end up having to battle two viruses at the same time, which puts an enormous strain on the immune system.
Saversky puts the blame on capitalism – pharmaceutical companies make billions on people's fears, combined with asymmetrical information dispersal (meaning that most people know very little substantial information about the virus, whereas the WHO, pharmaceutical companies and researchers know a lot more).
So, what's to be done to conquer the virus – and stop the WHO?
Saversky says there is one solution – for governments worldwide to step in and take matters into their own hands, by controlling healthcare and pharmaceutical production.
Until that happens, however, remember to check for all common flu symptoms. And should a general disinclination to work of any kind be among them, rest assured – it is most probably a run-of-the-mill case of the Monday Blues.

The statistic shows us that in the last year more people died in Ukraine because of this Californian virus. It means that someone just used this situation for rates in the forthcoming elections or to earn a great amount of money on medical drugs in Ukraine and from other countries.

TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term
Aug 24, 2021 11:22:20 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic
Aug 24, 2021 11:27:06 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..
Aug 24, 2021 11:29:38 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..
Aug 24, 2021 11:33:05 GMT -5
Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...
Aug 24, 2021 13:46:55 GMT -5
Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..
Aug 24, 2021 13:50:39 GMT -5
Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.
Aug 24, 2021 14:11:49 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..
