July 9 declared day of mourning in Russia

In Russia today announced the Day of Mourning in connection with the tragic events in the Kuban and major accidents with Russian pilgrims in Ukraine. The corresponding decree was signed on the eve of President Vladimir Putin. On the whole territory of the country, as well as in the overseas representative offices of Russia, national flags will be lowered. It was recommended that cultural institutions and state-run television channels refrain from showing entertainment programs.

Krasnodar Territory also grieves - today, by decision of the Governor Alexander Tkachev, is also declared a day of mourning. It can be rightfully said that the Kuban is experiencing the worst and most devastating flood in these days. history. Even the tragic 2002 year doesn’t compare with the element that on July 6 in a matter of hours struck three districts of the region at once. At first - Gelendzhik, then, already at night - Novorossiysk and especially Krymsk in the full sense covered rivers of water from the mountains.

The number of victims of the tragedy is growing. According to the latest data, 171 people died as a result of a severe flood. Most of the dead - residents of the Crimean region. The first funeral of the victims took place the day before. The head of state visited the site of the tragedy in Krymsk. At the meeting, which was held by Vladimir Putin, it was decided to build new houses for all who lost them.

From the regional budget will be paid to all victims for 10 thousand rubles for the most necessary, so that people can live now. In addition, all victims will be paid 50 thousand rubles from the regional budget and 100 thousand rubles from the federal budget for each family member. The families of the victims will also be paid 1 million rubles from the federal budget and 1 million rubles from the regional budgets. Upon the mass death of people, a criminal case was initiated and is being investigated under the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "Causing death by negligence to two or more persons."

7 July was another tragedy. On the 119 km of the Kyiv-Chernigov highway, it drove into the oncoming traffic and the Neoplan bus, which carried Russian pilgrims from Velikiy Luk to the Pochayev Monastery in Ukraine, turned over. According to preliminary data, the driver violated the rules of the road. As a result, 14 people died, 29 suffered. A total of 43 people were on the bus. Some of the victims were sent for treatment to Moscow, and some to Pskov, from where a group of pilgrims went on a tour. The bus driver was detained and placed in a temporary detention center in Chernigov. In the Pskov region, according to the decision of the head of the region, Andrey Turchak, a three-day mourning has been declared since July 9.

    Was in Gelendzhik that day, sat in the hotel watching TV, on Saturday walked from "Begemot" to the market along the embankment and back along "Lunacharsky". I will note the speech of the governor on the local channel, the work of the rescue services, the police on duty in dangerous places. In my opinion, the state system has worked, although in this situation there is no limit of perfection and people have a lot of complaints.

      I carefully watched on the Internet a description of events in the Krasnodar Territory. Regardless of the tragedy that occurred there, here I give the floor to specialists, I should note that the general direction of discussion in the blogosphere is clearly anti-state. There is nothing surprising in this, the authorities constantly give reason to chide them (not to say - hang them on trees), but any more or less strong state should be engaged in counter-propaganda. And the almost complete absence of this propaganda caught my eye.

      Even in my own Forum, people who certainly don’t belong to the authorities, but just soberly look at the situation, are in the minority. Moreover, their performances sometimes looked quite pale and deliberate - as if they were working through the number. This speaks not so much of the weakness of their argumentation — rather, of the great work done by the alternative direction. Which, most likely, is fueled by various external forces. “External” - in this case, not synonymous with “foreign”, rather, it speaks about the attitude towards the tragedy itself in Krymsk - which is a tool for these forces, and not the main task.

      And now is the time to recall my predictions of the beginning of the year, when I wrote that Putin, whether he likes it or not, will soon have to start “cleaning” the modern Russian “elite”. It’s just that there are no longer any resources to keep it in its previous composition - so its substantial reduction is only a matter of time. It’s another matter that Putin can decide whom to cut today - and many would very much like him to lose such an opportunity. And for this it is necessary to delegitimize him as a figure with a mandate from the people. Including - and the elite purge.

      Let me remind you that the notorious "Bolotny" process, in the opinion of many reputable (for me, to be sure) experts, was coordinated and funded by the so-called "family" group. This opinion, by the way, does not contradict the opinion expressed above - since one of his clearly articulated goals is to deprive the current Russian authorities of legitimacy. And the fact that Putin is unlikely to save the "family" at all costs is not a great revelation. So they just have to be interested in easing it in every way.

      But attacks on power in the blogosphere (including with clearly suspicious information, such as “mobile jammers”, which allegedly surrounded Krymsk) are clearly aimed at achieving the same goal (although regional power, including so that the people perceive it as an enemy), which gives reason to believe that this activity also has some coordinators and sponsors.

      But in power, including Putin personally, apparently, there is no such system of ideological support. Moreover, the young people who are not watching TV today are clearly drawn to patriotic ideas, but at the official level this craving is not supported at all. The government is financing the clearly anti-Soviet war films and themes aimed at eroding patriotism, the patriotic theme is not supported by official publications, and the activity of individuals is clearly clogged with a meaningless and, in many ways, harmful background. Moreover, the middle part of the state apparatus, clearly controlled by the “family” grouping (which has nominated these individuals for almost 15 years), actively destroys all the germs of constructive activity that arises in our country.

      Taking into account the events in the Krasnodar Territory, I would say that for Putin today the situation has become critical. In the spring, I assumed that he had time at least until mid-autumn. Today it is already clear that it has greatly decreased - a few more weeks of such activity and the mandate of trust that he received in the March elections will melt like shagreen leather. And it will be impossible to do anything already - because even those relatively meaningful, the people Putin put on some posts cannot make their way through the veil created by the old apparatus, both ideological, administrative and personnel.

      Putin must urgently solve at least two tasks: firstly, to create his own institute of ideological confrontation within the framework of today's Russia, and secondly, to create his own personnel apparatus, which is not already controlled by obvious political opponents today. Of course, he also has economic tasks, but this one is political, the most important and urgent. If this is not done, it will be very expensive for him.

    Sincere condolences to all the victims. In the morning I called Novorossiysk to my work friend. He said that they didn’t tell almost anything of what was actually there on TV. It only remains to think of what the scope of the tragedy really is. People are very sorry.

    The kingdom of heaven is lost. My family got around grief. a cousin and her husband sat on the second floor.

    I was struck by something else. How low we have fallen for some 20 years to receive dividends from the grief of the same mortal insects as ourselves. After the weekend I climbed onto the Internet, I knew what would happen, but not to the same extent. even scum classmate who now lives in Moscow and is an ardent oppositionist instead of once again re-posting the bill to help post opposition statements and arguments without soil. A lot of words a lot of dirt. I read the comments on the previous article. Novorossiysk and Gelendzhik saved. Yes, they already covered before. And as you can imagine, the Neberdzhaevskoye water and water defense with a mark of 162m will jump to the Novoros ridge with marks of 540m and above. Fighters, and of which most here open the topographic map. Not GPS and not atlas and you will see a lot. In addition to the lower bank, you will also see the upper bank which is higher to the pass to Novoros. And you will see why they did not suffer there. I trampled these mountains as a boy when, from the eighth grade, I was somewhere in Tuapse or Novoros with infantry from Krasnodar. Anyone who has fallen in the mountains knows what rain is. And that you just can’t put up a tent and that a dry bed turns into a tent. Another question is what about Neberdzhaevskaya, which is located immediately behind the reservoir on the way to Krymsk, and the spillway goes right through it.

    I will say cynically and blasphemously. Even hypothetically, if I had the choice to save Gelendzhik with Novoros by emergency dumping or Krymsk, I would choose to save Novoros and Gelendzhik because there are now a bunch of our children of different ages in the camps, and one counselor for 15-20 people would hardly do that. Forgive me dead.

    For myself, I made conclusions. The elements and power are equally to blame. The authorities are to blame for the fact that the warning system is not working. Remember to return the market to the village? Then we laughed and it turns out that the most unreliable thing in life is technology dependence. The authorities are to blame for the fact that poachers and not poachers cut oak and beech there, and the top cuts leave branches in the mountains, which are then collected by streams in dams. The authorities are to blame for the fact that they were inactive and some indulged this.
    The authorities are guilty of their excuses. No one was found who would say that they didn’t quite or not work well. No such feeder is more expensive. In fact, we were once again convinced that we are not ready for anything. so at least hang the market in place. at least the people will not sleep.

          Please do not write crap if you do not know !!!! In Krymsk around 22-00 there was no electricity in many areas and there was nothing to read the "creeping line" !!!! And it was given three hours (as the authorities say) before the disaster !!! Why don't they report about the Nizhnebakansky village ??? There, loaded trucks with water carried along the road ... And why don't the channels say about LOST WITHOUT NEWS ??? I have friends in Krymsk, alive, thank God, and so they say that there is continuous horror both with the supply and the Ministry of Emergency Situations ... No one really scratches it, they just clog the air .... And the SMS with a warning from Ministry of Emergencies received MORNING AFTER DISASTER ...

    And there will be no conclusions, as always. Naturally, money will be allocated from the budget, since half will be stolen. And so on until the next large-scale technological disaster. And this catastrophe is technogenic, because it is associated with irresponsibility, inaction, cowardice and deceit of officials.

        The head of the special detention center for administrative detainees of the Department of Internal Affairs in the Crimean region, police lieutenant colonel Vyacheslav Gorbunov, born in 1969, on the night of July 7, 2012 rescued residents of the city of Krymsk from the flood on a boat.
        He was raised at the signal for "general gathering" in the first hour of the night on July 7 and entered the service. Gorbunov independently found a boat, on which he moved along the flooded streets of Krymsk, pulled people out of the water and took them to a safe place. Vyacheslav Gorbunov was the last to rescue two children aged 5 and 6, and then went after their relatives who were trapped in a residential building. At this moment, a strong wave overturned the boat, the policeman was in the water and died. His body was found on the evening of July 7 on Lunacharsky Street when the water melted.
        The deceased officer left a wife and two teenage children. He had 17 rewards, including the medal “For Distinguishing Service of the Third Degree”, the badge “For Service of Russia”, “Participant in Military Operations”, and “Best Investigator”.
        The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia reported that a total of about 600 police officers worked in Krymsk, they saved about 300 people, including 150 children.

    It is regrettable that in the era of information technology it was not possible to notify people in time, to calculate the consequences of rains, to take at least some measures. Like in the stone age. I heard on the radio that there were some kind of SMS without end, they were warning about something, and about which there was no information.
