russian principal prosecuted for suspending schoolgirl over pink hair
prosecutors in central russia have opened an investigation into the suspension of a high school student for pink-colored hair.perm resident zinaida agisheva, 15, was reportedly suspended from classes earlier this month for violating a local school’s dress code after dying her hair pink. she was later reinstated after returning “with normal hair,” the school’s director told local media last week.perm prosecutors said they have opened administrative proceedings against the school and its principal for violating agisheva’s right to receive an education. the regional prosecutor’s office added that it had lodged a “protest” against the school’s dress code.“the [dress code] did not authorize the school to set requirements for the students’ hair color and length,” it said in an online statement thursday.agisheva’s mother nadezhda, who is a local municipal deputy, wrote on facebook that she was not seeking to prosecute the school administration.following national media attention, social media users dyed their hair pink in support of agisheva and a regional human rights commissioner criticized the suspension as discriminatory. “‘adults’ think if they’re older, they’re right and there are no other opinions,” agisheva wrote on her instagram account. “no ‘adult’ has the right to dictate how to live your life.”

of meat and men
отбивать: to poundlast week most of the journalists in moscow spent much more time than they wanted looking up cuts of meat in dictionaries. i refer, of course, to comments made by viktor zolotov, once in charge of security for president putin and now the head of the russian national guard, to alexei navalny in a video. i personally was most interested in finding out when and why making angry, threatening video addresses to enemies and sticking them on youtube became a thing among the russian elite, but everyone else was fretting over the perfect translation of сочная отбивная, the juicy meat dish that zolotov promised to turn opposition politician alexei navalny into.this was just one of many colorful insults zolotov heaped on navalny. in fact, his clip was a kind of dictionary of insults. first zolotov called him inhuman and — even worse! — made in the u.s.a.: …изделие из американской пробирки, вы все клоны. естественно, конечно же, вы марионетки (…a product made in an american test-tube, all of you clones. naturally, of course, you are puppets). but even though navalny wasn’t a real person, he was rotten through and through: гнилые внутри, трухлявые (rotten inside, moldering). not to mention lacking in principles: ни духовности, ни нравственности абсолютно (no piety, absolutely no morality). and at least one of...

russian police reportedly interrogate schoolgirls over protest activity
russian anti-extremism police have reportedly questioned two high school students over taking part in anti-government demonstrations this month.mass rallies against state plans to raise the retirement age were held in dozens of russian cities on sept. 9, with young people making up the majority of the protesters. police detained hundreds of people, including young children and the elderly, and were filmed beating participants with batons.an 11th grader who attended the moscow rallies said a school psychiatrist summoned her during algebra class for questioning by a man who introduced himself as an officer of the interior ministry’s anti-extremism center.“navalny’s staff had taught us how to recognize them,” kamilla brailovskaya, 17, wrote on facebook, referring to opposition leader alexei navalny’s nationwide network of volunteers. “they’re in plain clothes, shabby jeans, t-shirt tucked, a belt, and [carry] a small handbag the size of a pistol,” she wrote on wednesday.though she initially asserted her constitutional right to remain silent, kamilla said the officer took out “a folder the size of two ‘war and peace’ volumes with screenshots and notes.” “there’s my photo. lying won’t work. ‘yes, that’s me’,” she recounted, noting that the officer summoned her to the station the next day.kamilla’s classmate valeria was also questioned by the officer, a third classmate matvei told the mbkh news website on thursday. he said one of kamilla’s ...

the real point of russian (and soviet) jokes (op-ed)
back in the 1980s, the central intelligence agency collected soviet jokes and likely shared them with president ronald reagan. i can see why they did it: during the cold war, it warmed americans’ hearts that at least some russians made fun of the official soviet propaganda narrative. it was seen as a chink in the communist armor. perhaps, but it’s hard to tell: russian humor about the way the country is run is an unbroken tradition from the czarist era to the present day.the cia-reagan soviet joke pipeline was no secret at the time. one from a list declassified in 2013 was a particular favorite – reagan told it repeatedly, once adding he’d shared it with soviet leader mikhail gorbachev and gotten a laugh from him. the cia version goes like this:an american tells a russian that the united states is so free he can stand in front of the white house and yell, “to hell with ronald reagan.” the russian replies: “that’s nothing. i can stand in front of the kremlin and yell, ‘to hell with ronald reagan,” too.to the u.s. president, the jokes were a sign that russians had “a pretty cynical attitude toward their system.” the observation itself was correct, but it was also out of context. systems changed, but the cynicism remained.when dmitry karakozov fired a gun at czar alexander ii in 1866, an apocryphal version of why he missed involved a peasant who’d pushed the terrorist the moment he pulled the trigger. the joke that circulated about it went,“wh...

kremlin accuses u.s. of using sanctions to squeeze russia out of arms trade
kremlin spokesman dmitry peskov said on friday that by imposing sanctions on buyers of russian weapons, and on people associated with the russian military, the united states is trying to squeeze out competitors in the global arms trade. the trump administration imposed sanctions on the chinese military on thursday for buying fighter jets and missile systems from russia, in breach of a sweeping u.s. sanctions law punishing moscow for meddling in the 2016 u.s. election, something russia denies. peskov called the new sanctions hostile and unpredictable but did not say how russia would respond. “they use this practice so often that one would trip up reacting to each new instance,” the spokesman said.

attacks on russian activists and journalists on the rise, ngo warns
an increasing number of civil activists, politicians and journalists have been assaulted in russia since 2015, according to a report that sounds the alarm on the normalization of state-sanctioned violence.more than 200 attacks or threats of attack were registered in 2014-2018, the agora human rights group said in its report on political violence published friday. the report outlines a steady rise in threats and attacks from 21 in 2015, to 35 in 2016 and 77 last year. the first 8.5 months of 2018 already saw 80 threats and attacks, the report’s authors said.“security officials receive absolution for committing torture, and their illegal actions no longer fall under the criminal code when it comes to political violence to safeguard the government’s stability,” the report says.agora’s apologiya protesta, which provides assistance to protesters, defines threats as either verbal attacks or property damage, including arson attacks and storming vehicles or offices.moscow and st. petersburg traditionally led the list of cities where most of the threats and attacks took place in the past four years (52 and 23 cases each), followed by the southern city of krasnodar (15).seven regions in central russia and siberia had at least five attacks between 2014 and 2018.“the realities of today are such that if you’ve decided to engage in civil activism, get ready for threats and attacks in addition to detentions at peaceful protests,” warns the report.

russia backs bosnia's integrity amid serb calls for secession
russia supports the peace accords that ended bosnia's war in the 1990s and the country's territorial integrity, russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said on friday amid a bosnian serb leader's calls for secession of a serb-run region from bosnia.lavrov arrived in bosnia two weeks before bosnia's national election, a visit described by local media as a show of support for bosnian serb leader milorad dodik, even though the russian said he was not making a recommendation as to who to vote for.dodik, who is running for a serb seat in bosnia's inter-ethnic presidency, is campaigning on a ticket of a wider autonomy of the serb republic that he currently presides over and its ultimate secession from bosnia.dodik, who favors closer ties with russia rather than the west, hopes that russia will support his separatist plans at the time when a land swap has been discussed between serbia and kosovo, meaning that borders at the balkans may change again but this time with international blessing.however, lavrov, who is due to meet dodik later, gave no public support for the separatist move. `russia's stance is there is no alternative to the dayton peace agreement,` lavrov said at a news conference in sarajevo held with his bosnian counterpart igor crnadak, referring to the us.-brokered peace deal that ended bosnia's 1992-95 war.`we support bosnia's sovereignty, territorial integrity andthe authorities granted by the constitution to its two entities and three constituent peoples,...

russia’s bitter reality check in syria (op-ed)
president vladimir putin and turkish president recep tayyip erdogan met in the southern russian city of sochi this week to try to find a solution to the idlib problem. exactly what to do with the province in northern syria, which is the last stronghold of rebels opposed to president bashar assad, has also been a sticking point between his allies, russia, iran and turkey.idlib is the last bastion of an extremely complex web of militias, some of which form the so-called hayat tahrir al sham, a rebranded successor of al nusra front that traces its origin to al qaeda. others there are backed by turkey.previous efforts to solve the crisis, including the latest astana process meeting which gathered the leaders of iran, russia and turkey in tehran in early september, failed to find a solution. and the fact there had yet to be a breakthrough had taken its toll on the ties between assad’s allies.the failed meeting earlier in september deepened russian and turkish suspicion that the syrian and iranian forces amassed at the border of the idlib would go ahead with a large-scale offensive that could spark a massive humanitarian crisis in a province that reportedly is home to about 3 million civilians.putin and erdogan’s meeting in sochi was their second attempt to come to an agreement on how to deal with the terrorist threat in idlib, while salvaging the existing de-escalation zone. the fact the meeting was so hastily organized just days after the previous meeting reflects just how ...

russia launches international manhunt for space contractor reportedly hiding in u.s.
russian investigators have launched an international manhunt for the head of a bankrupt construction company contracted by the country's space agency who is accused of large-scale fraud and is believed to be hiding abroad.sergei slastikhin, the head of inzherniye sistemy, was charged with fraud on aug. 7 and placed on an international wanted list on sept. 11, a moscow judge said thursday. his company held contracts for several roscosmos federal space agency sites and he reportedly had access to state secrets.slastikhin has been arrested in absentia on suspicion of large-scale fraud, the rbc news website cited investigators as saying in court on thursday.“it’s been established that the defendant is hiding outside russia and is currently in the u.s.,” the unnamed investigator told the moscow court.an unidentified source familiar with the investigation estimated damages from the suspected fraud at “hundreds of millions of rubles” to rbc.over the past year, federal auditors have uncovered billions of misspent funds in the russian space industry. investigators have carried out a series of raids on suspicions of fraud and the leaking of secret hypersonic missile technology to the west.

russia's biggest oil producers have never had it so good
russia’s oil and gas companies are living through the best of times, simultaneously enjoying record production and the highest prices ever in the local currency.an index of the companies this month hit an all-time high in rubles and reached levels not seen since june 2014 in dollars. russian crude producers are raking in cash as the rally in dollar-denominated oil prices is amplified by a weakening ruble, helping the industry achieve record-breaking revenues and shrink debts.but there’s a cloud on the horizon. there’s a risk that the u.s. could toughen sanctions on russia in connection with the chemical weapons attack in the u.k or continued allegations of election interference.`all investors are asking themselves — ok, the russian companies look attractive right now, but what about the next six months, what about the next 12 months,` said alexandre dimitrov, head of emerging europe eq funds at erste sparinvest kap mbh. `everyone is looking at november, when we have mid-term u.s. congress elections and the new sanctions against russia.`an agreement between the organization of petroleum exporting countries and its allies in june to relax oil output cuts has allowed russian oil companies to resume production growth. they’re doing it so actively that the industry is said to have set a new post-soviet record this month.russian oil producers are an attractive investment long-term because they have some of the lowest lifting costs globally, focus on domestic projec...

russia says u.s. is playing with fire by imposing 60th sanctions package since 2011
russia on friday called a new wave of u.s. sanctions misguided, saying washington's habit of using sanctions against moscow risked undermining global stability and was part of a dangerous game.the trump administration imposed sanctions on the chinese military on thursday for buying fighter jets and missile systems from russia, in breach of a sweeping u.s. sanctions law punishing moscow for meddling in the 2016 u.s. election, something russia denies.the administration also blacklisted an additional 33 people and entities associated with the russian military and intelligence.russian deputy foreign minister sergei ryabkov said in a statement it seemed to moscow that imposing sanctions on russia had become a national u.s. pastime, noting that the latest wave of restrictions was the 60th sanctions package since 2011.`each new round of sanctions proves our foe's complete lack of success in pressuring russia with previous such attempts,` said ryabkov, who added that washington would never succeed in dictating its conditions to moscow.`it would be not bad if they remembered about the concept of global stability which they are unthinkingly undermining by whipping up tensions in russia-u.s. relations. playing with fire is stupid and can become dangerous.`

u.s. sanctions driving russian billionaires into putin’s arms
the trump administration is helping vladimir putin achieve a goal that’s eluded him for almost two decades — getting russia’s billionaires to start repatriating some of their assets.relatively muted sanctions imposed during the obama era over the conflict in ukraine have only widened in scope and severity since trump took office last year. the unpredictability of both the white house and congress is forcing russians to move money into state-run banks and rejig the offshore superstructure that’s sheltered fortunes here since communism’s collapse.tycoons and their executives say the rush to move assets beyond the reach of the u.s. treasury started with the biggest enterprises in april, when oleg deripaska and viktor vekselberg and their companies lost billions within hours of being hit with the harshest penalties to date. now the trend is accelerating, spurred by the threat of even more draconian measures over russia’s alleged election meddling and nerve-agent attack on a turncoat spy in england.“it’s toxic to be russian,” said oleg vyugin, a former senior central bank official who is now chairman of the moscow exchange. “and the richer you are, the more toxic you are.”most of russia’s biggest non-state exporters have emptied their accounts in the u.s. and europe, with many transferring funds to state-run banks or local units of european lenders, several people familiar with the matter said. the central bank doesn’t publish statistics specifically on ...

russian government proposes extra $10bln to 'stimulate' state officials
russian civil servants could see a windfall of up to $10 billion in the next three years under a budget proposal designed to “stimulate” government workers.the potential spending increase comes at a sensitive time for president vladimir putin’s administration, which is pushing through an unpopular proposal to raise the population’s retirement age. state salaries have reportedly jumped since putin announced his re-election bid late last year, with the average salary for federal civil servants being more than double that of the national average.the 2019-2021 draft budget proposed by the government sets aside an extra 630 billion rubles ($9.5 billion) on “financial motivation” for state officials, according to the rbc news website.the proposed sums for 2019 and 2020 are almost double the 200 billion rubles set in the existing budget law, rbc writes. a further 284.4 billion rubles is set aside as extra stimulus for bureaucrats in 2021 in the proposed plan, bringing the three-year total increase to 631.9 billion rubles.finance minister anton siluanov said the “dismal situation with wages in regional offices” warranted the pay rise.“a federal-level increase in material stimulus is also planned starting in 2020,” he told reporters after a cabinet meeting on thursday.the economic development ministry, finance ministry and labor ministry have until the end of 2018 to draft the civil servant wage hike legislation, rbc reports.

wada votes to reinstate russia’s anti-doping authority
the world anti-doping agency (wada) has voted, subject to certain conditions, to lift the ban on russia’s anti-doping authority (rusada), which was suspended in 2015 following allegations of widespread state-sponsored doping.in a widely-expected but heavily-criticised decision, wada said that one of the key sticking points — access to stored urine samples at rusada's moscow laboratory — still needed to be provided.the suspension could be reintroduced if this did not happen within `a clear timeline,` it added.`today, the great majority of the wada executive committee (exco) decided to reinstate rusada as compliant with the world anti-doping code, subject to strict conditions,` wada president craig reedie said following a meeting in the seychelles.rusada was suspended in november 2015 after an independent wada report carried out by canadian lawyer richard mclaren outlined evidence of massive state-backed, systematic doping in russian athletics.the allegations, which moscow has denied, led to russia being banned from this year's winter olympics in south korea with some russian athletes permitted to compete under the olympic flag.

russians accused of skripal poisoning previously detained in the netherlands — bellingcat
a joint investigation by bellingcat and the insider media outlet claims that the two russian men suspected of poisoning sergei skripal were previously detained in the netherlands.british prosecutors have identified two russians they said were operating under aliases — alexander petrov and ruslan boshirov — whom they accused of trying to poison sergei and yulia skripal with a military-grade nerve agent in england. two men who identified themselves as petrov and boshirov told russia's state-funded rt television station last week that they had traveled to salisbury for tourism purposes.in its report published on thursday evening, bellingcat cited an unnamed source in a western european law-enforcement agency as saying that petrov and boshirov — which are presumably not the men's real names — were previously detained in the netherlands. in its russian-language report, the insider cited unnamed sources in dutch law enforcement as saying the arrests had taken place early this year. they were then handed over to swiss authorities, the report added.the dutch nrc handelsblad and tages-anzeiger newspaper already reported last week that swiss, dutch and british authorities had worked together to foil a plot against the spiez laboratory near bern which analyzes chemical and biological weapons.a spokesperson for switzerland's federal intelligence service (fis) confirmed the news to the moscow times.responding to the reports, russia's foreign ministry summoned the amba...

russia's suspended athletics federation takes heart from wada's doping decision
the world anti-doping agency's (wada) reinstatement of russia's anti-doping agency rusada on thursday has given the country's suspended athletics federation hope it too may be reinstated, its president said in comments carried on its website.earlier on thursday, wada voted, subject to certain conditions, to lift the ban on rusada, which was suspended in 2015 following allegations of widespread state-sponsored doping.“i won’t hide it, the mood is good,” dmitry shlyakhtin, the federation's president, said. “the reinstatement of rusada, of course, increases optimism (regarding the athletic federation’s reinstatement).”russia’s athletics federation was suspended in 2015 over a wada-commissioned report that alleged the existence of state-sponsored doping in the sport. some russian track and field athletes have since been cleared to compete internationally as neutrals despite the ban.the international association of athletics federations (iaaf), the sport's global governing body, will convene in december to discuss progress made by russia’s athletics federation.

why brussels outcast viktor orban is loved in moscow (op-ed)
at a joint press conference with president vladimir putin this week, hungarian prime minister applauded the strong ties between the two countries. “hungary needs reliable partners,” he said. “and i’m happy that the relationship between our countries has been balanced and reliable for years.”it would be a much more difficult task for orban to identify any country in western europe at the moment that is an equally reliable partner as russia. indeed, two-thirds of meps last week voted for a resolution that starts a procedure against hungary for disrespecting fundamental values of the european union.in times of diplomatic isolation from the west, russia is always there to provide shelter. think back to greek prime minister alexis tsipras’s flirtation with putin around the referendum on the strict financial bailout back in 2015. tsipras sent a clear message to the eu: if you don’t want me, i will find allies in china and russia who will help bail me out (they didn’t).orban is playing a similar game now. `if the european union cannot provide financial support, we will turn to china,` he told a meeting of business leaders in berlin earlier this year. and the takeaway from this week’s meeting with putin was similar: if the eu doesn’t want me, i’ll turn to putin.of course orban is not the only prime minister in the eu who has been busy cultivating ties with russia. but he does seem to have a disproportionately strong interest in building a relationship with p...

'sex is a gift from god'
a russian orthodox archbishop in charge of family affairs has sided with pope francis in his assessment that sexuality is not a taboo but a gift from god — as long as it is practiced within the family.the pope reportedly told young worshippers in france this week that “passionate” love “leads you to give your life forever.” “sexuality, sex, is a gift of god. not taboo,” he was quoted as telling young catholics from the grenoble diocese.archpriest dmitry smirnov, who heads a russian orthodox patriarchal commission for children’s and mother’s rights, concurred with pope francis that “sex is a component of love.”“but only love within marriage,” smirnov told the govorit moskva radio station wednesday. he echoed the pope’s message that premarital sex “violates god’s plan and is a mortal sin.”correction: an earlier version of this article incorrectly referred to dmitry smirnov as an archbishop. he is an archpriest.
