13 Juli 2016

Silk Way Rallye 2016 – drei MINI ALL4 Racing beenden die
fünfte Etappe in den Top-4. Al Rajhi auf dem dritten Gesamtrang.

 
Mit einer starken Performance des MINI ALL4 Racing haben Yazeed Al Rajhi
(KSA) und Timo Gottschalk (GER) nach einer schwierigen vierten Etappe
(12.07.2016) einen Platz in den Top-3 zurückerobert.

München. Auf der fünften Etappe der Silk Way Rallye
2016 von Moskau nach Peking haben sich die MINI ALL4 Racing Crews
erneut in Topform gezeigt, nachdem sie am gestrigen Renntag mit
Schwierigkeiten zu kämpfen hatten.

Auf der heutigen Etappe von Astana nach Balkash wendete sich das
Blatt wieder, und drei MINI ALL4 Racing kamen innerhalb der Top-4 der
Tageswertung ins Ziel. Zudem hat die Gesamtführung gewechselt.

Die längste Etappe des Rennen verlief für das Duo im bestplatzierten
MINI ALL4 Racing mit der Startnummer 103, Yazeed Al Rajhi (KSA) und
Timo Gottschalk (GER), dennoch durchaus ereignisreich. Sie
verzeichneten auf der SS5 drei Reifenschäden und mussten dann auch
noch anhalten, um die Windschutzscheibe zu reinigen, da aufgespritzter
Schlamm es schwierig machte, die Straße zu sehen. Das hielt sie jedoch
nicht davon ab, den heutigen Teil der Silk Way Rallye 2016 von Astana
nach Balkash als Zweitschnellste zu beenden.

Damit verbesserte sich das Duo in der Gesamtwertung vom sechsten auf
den dritten Rang, und sie sind optimistisch, weitere Zeit gut machen
und einen Angriff auf die Gesamtführung starten zu können.

Al Rajhi sagte: „Ich glaube, das war die längste Etappe meines
Lebens. Denn sie war nicht nur lang, sondern auch sehr technisch.
Solche Etappen sind sehr schwierig. Unser Ziel für heute lautete,
anzugreifen, und ich sagte meinem Beifahrer, dass wir den dritten
Platz ins Visier nehmen. Er war sich nicht sicher, ob wir das schaffen
werden, aber ich sagte ihm, sich anzuschnallen und die Fahrt zu
genießen! Nach 50 oder 60 Kilometer hatten wir Cyril [Despres], und
wir haben voll attackiert, um in zu überholen. Doch nach 80/90
Kilometern hatten wir den ersten Reifenschaden, nach 150 Kilometern
den zweiten Reifenschaden und zwischen Kilometer 180 und 200 den
dritten Reifenschaden. Trotzdem, und obwohl wir auch noch anhalten
mussten, um die Scheibe vom Schlamm zu befreien, sind wir Zweiter
geworden – und haben unser Ziel damit sogar noch übertroffen.“

Eine erfolgreiche Etappe war es auch für den #106 MINI ALL4 Racing
von Aidyn Rakhimbayev (KAZ) und Anton Nikolaev (RUS), die direkt
hinter Al Rajhi Dritte wurden und damit ihren fünften Rang im
Gesamtklassement festigten.

Das Blatt wieder richtig wenden konnten heute Harry Hunt (GB) und
Andreas Schulz (GER) im #105 MINI ALL4 Racing. Sie sind eine starke
und souveräne Etappe gefahren, die sie auf dem vierten Rang beendeten.
Damit machten sie 20 der 23 Positionen gut, die sie gestern auf nur
einer Etappe verloren hatten. Nun Gesamtzwölfter, ist Hunt
entschlossen, in den nächsten Tagen in die Top-10 zurückzukehren.

Hunt: „Der heutige Tag war gut. Das war die längste Etappe, die ich
je gefahren bin, das war interessant. Wir hatten zwar ein paar
kleinere Probleme, aber nichts Größeres. Von daher konnten wir eine
schöne und konstante Pace fahren und ein gutes Ergebnis holen.“

Nur zwei Plätze hinter dem Briten kam der #101 MINI ALL4 Racing von
Vladimir Vasilyev (RUS) und Konstantin Zhiltsov (RUS) auf Rang sechs
ins Ziel. Damit sicherte sich das russische Duo Platz sechs der Gesamtwertung.

Beifahrer Zhiltsov sagte: „Es war eine gute Etappe, obwohl sie lang
und nach nur zwei Stunden Schlaf körperlich sehr anstrengend war. Die
letzten 50 Kilometer waren sehr schnell, aber staubig, und deshalb
haben wir durch das Bremsen einiges an Zeit verloren. Aber das Rennen
ist noch nicht vorbei. Ich denke, das Rennen startet erst richtig,
wenn wir die chinesische Grenze passiert haben.“

Der fünfte MINI ALL4 Racing im Bunde, pilotiert von Bauyrzhan
Issabayev (KAZ) und Vladimir Demyanenko (RUS) beendete den Tag auf
Rang 13 und festigte damit ein Platz in den Top-10 der Gesamtwertung.

Morgen geht die Action bei Silk Way Rallye weiter, wenn sich die
Teams auf den Weg von Balkash nach Almaty machen, auf der sechsten von
insgesamt 15 Etappen dieses Rennens durch drei Länder.

Headline: В Архангельске за мошенничество и преднамеренное банкротство осудили бывшего директора лесозавода и депутата областной думы

Ломоносовский районный суд г. Архангельска согласился с позицией государственного обвинения и признал бывшего генерального директора градообразующего предприятия ОАО «Лесозавод № 3» Виталия Графа виновным в совершении преступлений предусмотренных ст. 196 УК РФ (преднамеренное банкротство), ч. 3 ст. 30 ч. 4 ст. 159 УК РФ (покушение на мошенничество, совершенное группой лиц по предварительному сговору, с использованием служебного положения, в особо крупном размере).

По данному уголовному делу по ч. 5 ст. 33, ст. 196 УК РФ (пособничество в преднамеренном банкротстве) и ч. 3 ст. 30, ч. 4 ст. 159 УК РФ (покушение на мошенничество, совершенное группой лиц по предварительному сговору, в особо крупном размере) также осужден депутат Архангельского областного соб­рания депутатов Сергей Мышковский.

Суд установил, что с июня 2012 г. по июнь 2013 Граф г. при пособничестве Мышковского намеренно привел ОАО «Лесозавод № 3» к банкротству, остановке произ­водства, распродаже оборудования и недвижимого имуще­ства, а также причинил ущерб добросовестным кредиторам организа­ции на сумму свыше 755 млн рублей.

Кроме этого, в результате совместных действий Графа и Мышковского у предприятия перед подкон­трольными последнему коммерче­скими организациями образовалась кредиторская задолжен­ность в размере свыше 529 млн рублей. Эту сумму злоумышленники рассчитывали получить в ходе банкротства лесозавода за счет реализации имущества.

Однако довести задуманное до конца они не смогли, поскольку их действия пресекли со­трудники правоохранительных органов.

Приговором суда Графу назначено наказание в виде 6 лет 6 месяцев лишения свободы с отбыванием в исправительной колонии общего режима со штрафом в размере 550 тыс. рублей.

Мышковский осужден к 6 годам 3 месяцам лишения свободы в исправительной колонии общего режима со штрафом в размере 550 тыс. рублей.

Приговор суда в законную силу не вступил.

Press release
13 July 2016

Silk Way Rally 2016 – three MINI ALL4 Racing finish SS5 in top
four. Al Rajhi in third place overall.

 
Strong performances from the MINI ALL4 Racing today enabled Yazeed Al
Rajhi (KSA) and Timo Gottschalk (GER) to regain a top three position
overall after a difficult day on stage 4 yesterday (12.07.16).

Munich. Stage 5 of the 2016 Silk Way Rally from
Moscow to Beijing saw the MINI ALL4 Racing pairings return to strong
form after a challenging day of racing yesterday.

Today’s stage, from Astana to Balkhash, saw a reversal of fortunes
though with three MINI ALL4 Racing finishing the leg inside the top
four. There was also a change in early race leader.

The longest stage of the race was still eventful for the leading MINI
ALL4 Racing #103 of Yazeed Al Rajhi (KSA) and Timo Gottschalk (GER)
though. Despite suffering from three punctures at different stages of
SS5 and then stopping to clean the screen due to the amount of mud
making it difficult to see the road, they still completed today’s
section of the 2016 Silk Way Rally from Astana to Balkhash in second position.

This sees the pairing move up from 6th position in the overall
classification to 3rd, and they are confident of making up further
time in the next stages to challenge for the lead.

Al Rajhi said: “I think this was the longest stage in my life because
it is not only long but also technical; it’s very difficult when you
have a stage like that. The goal today was to attack and I told my
co-driver that the aim was to finish 3rd. He was not sure that we
could do it, but I told him to fasten his seatbelt and enjoy the
drive! After 50 or 60k we caught up to Cyril [Despres] and then it was
attack, attack, attack to pass him, but after 80/90k we have first
puncture, after 150k we have second puncture and at 180k to 200k third
puncture. Even after that and stopping to clean the mud from the
screen, we finished 2nd, which was better than our target!”

Today’s stage was also good for  the #106 MINI ALL4 Racing of Aidyn
Rakhimbayev (KAZ) and Anton Nikolaev (RUS) who secured a top three
finish, just behind Al Rajhi to consolidate their 5th position overall.

The true reversal of fortunes though was that of the #105 MINI ALL4
Racing of Harry Hunt (GB) and Andreas Schulz (GER). They drove a
strong and steady stage to finish today in fourth, making up 20 of the
23 places they lost in the overall standings yesterday in just one
leg. Now sitting in 12th position, Hunt is determined to break back
into the top 10 in the next stages.

Hunt: “Today was good; it was the longest stage I’ve ever done, so it
was interesting. We had a couple of small issues but nothing major so
it was a nice and steady pace for a good finish.”

Just two places behind the British driver today was the #101 MINI
ALL4 Racing of Vladimir Vasilyev (RUS) and Konstantin Zhiltsov (RUS)
who crossed the line in sixth place to secure 4th position overall.

Co-driver Zhiltsov said: “Today was a good stage, even though it long
and very physically demanding after only two hours sleep. The last 50k
was very fast and dusty so we wasted a lot of time with braking, but
the race is not finished yet. I think the real race will start after
the Chinese border!”

The final MINI ALL4 Racing of Bauyrzhan Issabayev (KAZ) and Vladimir
Demyanenko (RUS) ended the day in 13th to consolidate a top 10
position overall.

The Silk Way Rally action continues tomorrow as the teams make their
way from Balkhash to Almaty for stage 6 of the 15-leg race that
crosses 3 countries.

No time for business as usual: the EU must change to better deliver a Europe that works for workers

MIL OSI – Source: European Economic and Social Committee – Press Release/Statement

Headline: No time for business as usual: the EU must change to better deliver a Europe that works for workers

The shockwaves from the referendum result are still being felt. The reasons for the UK result are many and complex. Many of these reasons are not only confined to the UK. One thing is clear however; the European Union has to, and will, change. The issue is what direction will that change take?
The EESC Workers’ Group is convinced that the only possible way forward is for the EU to demonstrate that it is still united and capable of addressing the most pressing challenges facing our communities. Austerity policies have manifestly failed. Continuing on this path will give the wrong signal to people. They must now be abandoned and replaced with a more effective investment strategy.
The EU must prove that it is willing and able of delivering social progress and equal opportunities for all citizens, and that it can meet the concerns of working people: a lack of quality jobs, insecurity on the labour market, low wages, poor investment in public services, growing inequalities and poverty. This requires a joint effort and consensus from all actors: the European institutions, the Member States’ governments, employers, trade unions and civil society in general. If we fail in this, the EU will continue to lose the support of workers and the wider community.
There must be no undue delay or postponement of action at EU level to improve the living and working conditions of citizens. The Commission’s initiative on a European Pillar of Social Rights can provide such an opportunity. The Workers’ Group is committed to working towards ensuring that this becomes a positive project for workers.
The EU and UK will need time to negotiate their future relationship. Responsibility is needed on both sides to minimise the potential negative consequences on jobs and working conditions for British and European workers. The free movement of workers is one of the EU’s greatest achievements and must be defended. There can be no access to the single market without respecting this. However, mobility must be fair and to ensure this, existing problems must be addressed. As European Commission President Juncker said in his 2015 State of the Union address “labour mobility should be based on clear rules and principles”, the key principle being ensuring “the same pay for the same job at the same place”. It is not too much to ask for and this is what the revision of the Posting of Workers Directive must achieve.
Racism and xenophobia have no place in our communities. The European institutions, Member States, social partners and civil society must all play our part in defeating such attitudes. We must increase our efforts to engage in a broad debate about the root causes and to respond to and address the reasons.
There are lessons to be learnt not only by the European institutions and the Committee. We as trade union representatives must also reflect on how we communicate ‘Europe’ to our members. We know that the EU is not perfect and that it has to change. However, we must also do more to ensure that our members have a wider understanding of the benefits of the EU, how it works and what we can all do to positively influence its future direction.

Ulla Jelpke: EU-weite Aushebelung des Asylrechts droht

MIL OSI – Source: Die Linke – Press Release/Statement

Headline: Ulla Jelpke: EU-weite Aushebelung des Asylrechts droht

“Die Vorschläge der EU-Kommission richten sich gegen die Schutzsuchenden, denn sie beinhalten vor allem Sanktionen und Asylrechtsverschärfungen – wie etwa zusätzliche Haftgründe und Leistungskürzungen. Diese sollen insbesondere Flüchtlinge treffen, die sich dem unfairen und unmenschlichen Dublin-System durch eine Weiterflucht innerhalb der EU widersetzen – obwohl sie dafür meist gute Gründe haben.
Begleitend zum kollektiven Asylrechtsabbau soll es zukünftig auch EU-weit geltende Listen sogenannter sicherer Herkunfts- und Drittstaaten geben, die die bisher auf nationaler Ebene geführten Listen ersetzen. Ganz oben wird wohl die Türkei stehen, wenn es nach der EU-Kommission und der Bundesregierung geht. Zum Zweck der Abschottung und Abschiebung werden die Augen verschlossen vor den zahlreichen Menschenrechtsverletzungen und dem brutalen Krieg gegen die Kurden. Das allein zeigt, dass die künftige Abschottungspolitik keine moralischen und rechtsstaatlichen Skrupel mehr kennt. Dem muss entschieden entgegengetreten werden.”

Прокуратура Западного административного округа г. Москвы инициировала привлечение к административной ответственности коммерческой организации, в интересах которой было совершено преступление коррупционной направленности.

Установлено, что в декабре 2014 года проверяющий из комитета государственного строительного надзора г. Москвы Владимир Ивлев выявил в ООО «ПрофМиг» нарушения, выразившиеся в проведении реконструкции подвального помещения без соответствующего разрешения. Представитель юридического лица передал сотруднику Мосгосстройнадзора взятку в размере 300 тысяч рублей за составление акта проверки без указания сведений о них.

Вступившим в законную силу приговором Дорогомиловского районного суда г. Москвы Ивлев осужден по п. «в» ч. 5 ст. 290 УК РФ и приговорен к 5 годам лишения свободы с отбыванием в исправительной колонии строгого режима, со штрафом в размере 30 млн рублей.

Кроме того, прокурор Западного административного округа возбудил в отношении ООО «ПрофМиг» дело об административном правонарушении по ч. 1 ст. 19.28 КоАП РФ (незаконное вознаграждение от имени юридического лица).

Постановлением мирового судьи судебного участка № 228 района Чертаново Центральное г. Москвы юридическое лицо привлечено к административной ответственности в виде штрафа в размере 1,5 млн рублей в доход государства.

Не согласившись с указанным постановлением, ООО «ПрофМиг» обжаловало его в Чертановский районный суд г. Москвы. Решением районного суда постановление мирового судьи оставлено без изменения, жалоба организации – без удовлетворения.

Headline: Volodymyr Groysman urges every Ministry to take measures to combat corruption and report about results

Each
ministry has to identify the most vulnerable to corruption areas in its field
and take immediate measures to eliminate them. Each minister has to report about
the results of anti-corruption measures taken, Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr
Groysman has stated, opening a Governments meeting on Wednesday.

“I
will deliver an official statement that each minister should determine 3-5
areas of potentially high risks of corruption, and suggest how to minimize or
eliminate these risks. This is essential,” said Volodymyr Groysman.

The Head of
Government has noted that 9 December is International Anti-Corruption Day.
“I think it is a very good date when each Minister will report about the
anti-corruption activity,” he said.

The Prime
Minister urged the Ministers to present concrete proposals on this issue. The
Government will sum up the results on December 9, he pointed out.

The Prime
Minister has highlighted the need to build up a quality system to tackle
corruption, “We should not just say that we want to fight, but really
create conditions aimed at eliminating conditions for corruption in the Ministries.”
