Battle of Khoper. 2013 year

96
Calm in the Voronezh region was disturbed after the authorities gave permission to conduct surveys related to the extraction of nickel and other ores at the Yelansky and Yelkinsky deposits - on the territory of the most fertile chernozem in the immediate vicinity of the Khopyorsky Nature Reserve. For almost a year and a half, local residents oppose the barbaric developments, which will lead not only to the shallowing of Khopra and the death of various animal and plant species, but also to the transformation of fertile land into an ecological cloaca.




The right to development was won by the UMMC company, which managed to bring it to the deposit, whose unprofitability was proved back in the Soviet era, with the equipment and fenced off the development site with a fence, behind which it was guarded. Residents of the Voronezh region and neighboring regions repeatedly appealed to the authorities with a request to withdraw the permit for the extraction of nickel at Khopra. in the immediate vicinity of the very fence erected by the UMMC), but for some reason nobody was going to reckon with the people. Even the results of the survey conducted in the Novokhopyorsky district (development area), which showed that, no less than 98% of respondents opposed to nickel development, the authorities still did not impress.

Despite the fact that many lawyers, including criminal lawyers, warned that there was no legal basis for starting development, according to unconfirmed data, the UMMC skillfully used the services of Voronezh university teachers who defended the idea of ​​development and promoted how much income they would bring to the local treasury.

Last weekend, a direct clash between representatives of the UMMC and the Voronezh protesters took place at the field. About 1,5, thousands of people decided to hold a rally at the development site, where geologists had already begun (once again, taking into account the surveys of the times of the USSR). The rally was held peacefully as long as several masked men decided to break the barricades. A crowd of protesters poured into the development area, and people hiding their faces set fire to drilling rigs, turned over several cars and started banging the local police, who, it must be admitted, up to this point (prior to the arson of the towers and open attack) how they themselves oppose the transformation of Khoper from the cleanest large river of Europe into a poisoned swamp.

This incident, as a result of which the police began to miss literally everyone whom they could afford, even if a person did not commit illegal actions, should be a signal to local and federal authorities. A signal that if you continue to step over the people's interests, then those who are waiting for punctures from the authorities can also take advantage of this in order to achieve their personal political goals.

    Local residents, of course, do not like the fact that "temporary workers" have come, who care about profit and do not care about the environment. The local authorities are to blame for allowing the "escalation of the situation" to the clashes. The prosecutor's office must figure out who gave the right to develop and punish those responsible hi

                  In preparation for the Sochi 2014 Olympics, the UMMC takes part in the construction of sports facilities. In 2012, the company will complete the construction of the Small Ice Arena with 7000 seats, which will become one of the six arenas of the Olympic Park. The architectural concept of the future arena was developed by the specialists of the Italian company Stahlbau Pichler. When choosing architectural solutions, Italians were guided by the desire to bring into the image of the future ice arena "a European sense of space and volume, as well as the freshness of a European style." The building under construction will be equipped with the latest technology, in accordance with world standards for light, sound, the mandatory presence of HD television format. All this makes absolutely certain requirements for video screens, boards, equipment for the press center, and the operation of the security system. The cost of the construction of such a structure, based on world practice, was determined in the ratio of $ 7 thousand per seat.

                  It is assumed that during the Olympic Games in the Small Ice Arena there will be a women's hockey tournament, individual matches of the men's tournament, as well as competitions of Paralympic hockey players.

        SK promised to verify the legality of nickel mining near Voronezh

        The Investigative Committee promised to investigate the causes of the events in the Novokhopersky district of the Voronezh region, where thousands of people rallied against nickel mining, the agency’s website reported.

        “Investigators will verify the legitimacy of the actions of entrepreneurs, as well as officials of the district and regional administrations, regulatory authorities, whose responsibilities were to ensure compliance with environmental laws when deciding on nickel development,” the statement said.

        On Saturday evening, more than a thousand residents came to a rally against nickel mining, then some of them broke into the territory of the geologists' shift camp and set fire to oil rigs and cars. As a result of the riots, several people, including three police officers, were injured. 25 people are detained. A criminal case has been opened under the article “Violence against a representative of the authorities”, a preliminary investigation is being conducted on the grounds of a crime under the article “Mass riots”.

        Konstantin Rubakhin He was born on July 9, 1975 in the city of Gubkin, Belgorod Region, spent his childhood in Yugoslavia, and upon his return he lived in Stary Oskol, Voronezh. Currently lives in Moscow. In 1997, he graduated from the Faculty of Journalism of Voronezh State University, and is studying in graduate school at St. Petersburg State University at the Department of Social Philosophy. The topic of the dissertation is “Media Sociogenesis” (the influence of the media on mass consciousness).

        Since 2001, professionally engaged in political PR, worked on Channel One in the analytical direction with Marat Gelman. He took part in the creation and promotion of the Rodina party, worked in the Life Party. Then he moved to the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, worked in the press, oversaw aviation and security in the field of transport. As he himself admits, he got a job by acquaintance. From 2007 to 2008 he worked as an adviser to the head of the Federal Air Transport Agency. From 2009 to 2011 - Advisor to the Director of Atlant-Soyuz Airlines. Then it roams between Moscow, Prague and Paris.

        At the same time, Rubakhin is an assistant to State Duma deputy Ilya Ponomarev. He specializes in covering and promoting opposition rallies in the information field. Rubakhin participated and covered the “white tape” rallies “For Fair Elections” in Moscow in late 2011 – early 2012. According to some reports, Rubakhin is one of the members of the Left Front Council, Sergei Udaltsov.

        - The fight against nickel mining in the Voronezh region is just another art project for Kostya. I will not be surprised if Marat Gelman also takes part in it. This kind of long-term stock for him in the order of things. Art is always serious! Moreover, an anti-nickel art project brings good money!

        This version is confirmed by Rubakhin himself in an interview on the Dozhd TV channel:

        - I see that it has become interesting to live here, there is civic activity, and somehow it can be developed ... This is a very good PR, and in general nickel could even be invented! - Rubakhin explained to journalists the reason for his arrival from Europe to the Voronezh region.

      There are many ways to achieve a project’s profitability. For example, austerity on environmental and restoration measures, as temporary workers are going to do.
      It’s not a fact that if there is a plant there will be a good budget. As a private company, this UMMC itself will declare with a pure heart that there is practically no profit and nothing to pay taxes (it’s already mentally prepared - they tell you that even in Soviet times the project was recognized as unprofitable), but in fact it’s hidden in offshore. But the fact that the whole neighborhood will be turned into a filthy dump is a fact. Take an interest in nickel mining technology and everything will become clear.

      It bothers and surprises me a little different! The region has been buzzing for years, and the official federal media have been keeping dead silence on this subject. Have you ever seen reports of these mass protests, for example, on the 1 channel? Me not. Is everything fine with the ns, is everything stable?

      You look at the map, which territories will be affected downstream of Hopra?
      Do you know environmental, medical (oncology) etc. Problems of Norilsk citizens caused by nickel mining?
      I'm worried about the prospect of getting
      on the site of the Central Black Earth Region of Russia,
      and instead of the breadbasket of Russia, another Norilsk Nickel,
      with the following dimensions:
      in length - from Novokhopersk and downstream of Khopr to its confluence with the Don and already further down the Don,
      in width - the floodplain of Khopr and Don downstream from Novokhopersk.
      What will we eat then, where to live, how to be treated?
      An interesting detail. Only an insignificant part of the nickel that is already mined in Russia is necessary for us and remains in Russia. Most are already exported.
      We need it?

      I’m from the Saratov region, I’ve been to Barisoglebsk many times, I have work there, all enterprises have been preserved since the USSR, the town is clean and well-groomed. And what will the plant give? To work? Not a fact, for example, Severstal is building a plant in Balakovo, which is also not the most environmentally friendly, since almost none of the locals works in construction, migrant workers are building, although locals would work for that money, 20 tr considered a normal salary.

    For almost a year and a half, local residents have opposed barbaric developments that will lead not only to the shallowing of Khopr and the death of various species of animals and plants, but also to the transformation of fertile land into an ecological cesspool.

    Russia ranks first in the world in oil production and sales in the world.
    In Eighth place in reserves. According to some reports, she remained for 20 years.
    According to the same data, US stocks are only half as much. Do they sell to anyone?
    So why do we act as if it is endless with us ???

      This weekend, information leaked out about the "Deal of the Century", Rosneft and the Chinese oil company for the supply of its products to China by Rosneft. Moreover, the price of one barrel was not announced, only the total amount of 270 yards of greenery. Based on the last "deal of the century" from 2009, when the price was $ 45 (world prices at that time, $ 100 per barrel), I believe the current one is no more effective.

        365 million tons of oil in 25 years, which will allow you to get 270 billion dollars (365 million tons of Urals brand oil is about 2,7 billion barrels)

        It seems like a normal price of $ 100 per barrel.

      For oil is not entirely true.
      Nobody knows the exact oil reserves in Russia - this is state secret.
      + There are a lot of old oil fields which were carried out using barbaric methods. Now using modern technologies it is possible to return to them and resume production of previously unexplored reserves.

    The rally was held peacefully until several masked men decided to break the barriers. A crowd of protesters poured into the development area, and people, hiding their faces, set fire to the rigs, turned over several cars and started pounding the local police,

    This indicates a pre-planned provocation. And we can talk about an order that should, with equal probability, discredit those who oppose the development, and those who advocate for them .... in general, you need to catch those who cover their faces with a mask, and not look stupidly at the crowd .

      It's just a fairy tale about local residents! Leaflets are distributed in which the horrors of the exploitation of nickel deposits are written, and either they describe the consequences of nickel processing, which are not planned, or they tell about the consequences of mining using the example of opencast mines, which will also not happen, "local" residents arrive by buses and personal cars, from neighboring regions, as a rule, the overwhelming majority of them in the crowd, and the locals who wanted to get a job received a warning that there would be trouble. If mining is acceptable, scientists should decide, and not sent Cossacks and Internet trolls.

    UMMC has revived at least 1 \ 3 of the Ural metallurgy, mechanical engineering, and the agricultural sector. Absolutely free built for people sports centers, museums. Contains many teams in a variety of sports. Why should they be considered dumber than themselves? Or what do you think there only pests work? So for reference. In the management of the holding, the department of environmental protection is slightly smaller than 100 people and they are targeting people for themselves in the biology department of USU. So think about what harm they can do and what infrastructure to create. And do not forget that during the USSR there were no such technologies for the enrichment of minerals and the return of waste rocks.

          Firstly, there was no such thing as the Voronezh Cossacks. There are Don Cossacks.
          Secondly, besides the Cossacks there were still traitors, more numerous and more cruel. By the way, in all other historical times, there have NEVER been cases of mass betrayal and the transition of Cossacks to the service to the enemy, and this is an indicator of attitude to the authorities (I do not justify them, but this is a fact worthy of understanding), because power itself gave rise to enemies with total slander and dispossession of the whole country.

    I was in those places on the Vorona River, only those with a calculator in their brains can add nickel in the Voronezh region, and sow bread in the Arctic, instruct prosecutors to follow the rules in the casino. This topic: Where will the Naas lead the "elite" in the person of the oligarchs. I think the people will not back down.

    It is time for the authorities to stop being a monetary and nutritious gasket between the interests of the residents of the regions and the thirst for profit of local "oligarchs" for whom there is nothing sacred.
    The opposition of the townspeople against Erdogan put the whole of Turkey on the ears.
    The Russian people are patient, but if they get the power, it will not seem enough.
    If the past history did not teach the authorities anything, then the people can teach the lesson again.

    I have been in kayaking trips on Khopre (near Khrenovsky Bor), on the Bityug and on the Raven. And the most picturesque places, as if not touched by man, are on Khopre. They say there is even an abnormal zone. And does such a miracle of nature encroach on business? - Business can’t do it ...

    The annual budget of Novokhopersk is 8 million rubles. This subsistence economy is pure water. Primitive communal system. People are slaves.
    The annual budget of V. Pyshma is 2.4 billion rubles.
    All the same, they will mine Nickel. If Norilsk Nickel becomes engaged in it, then everything will be much worse. Norilsk Nickel - it’s not the UMMC that they will shoot everyone or poison them with gas.

                Because we live in Russia.
                I’m wondering if there would be no nickel, another oligarch would come and offer to create a super agricultural enterprise in the Novokhopersk district. Two meters of black soil, a national treasure .... The locals would also let the "red rooster" go.
                What kind of Russians are you? After all, it’s not black soil that you protect and not nature, but your primitive communal customs. It is because of these that the USSR fell apart and Russia falls apart

                    I wonder why they tried to take the land for agricultural work at the site of the alleged ore mining or nearby? Maybe as a PCB at the border? What would be fenced off from the local population?
                    Probably not - a banal coincidence ...
                    UMMC has been interesting for only 25 years. He will leave, but the population remains.

    Russian uprising in Prikhoporye: Thousands of people stormed the village of nickel deposit developers

    On June 22, in the Novokhopyorsky district of the Voronezh region, an uprising of Russian people against the development of the Elansky copper-nickel deposit, which, according to the protesters, will lead to an environmental disaster in the region, took place.

    After an authorized rally in the village of Sorokinsky, which brought together more than four thousand people, the most radical locals moved to the geologist camp, broke a fence using a tractor and burned expensive drilling rigs, cabins and alien cars.

    The Cossacks and Russian nationalists, speaking under imperial flags, took an active part in the popular protest.
    According to media reports, three police regimes suffered during the popular protest, 25 protesters were detained, more than 100 people were taken to police departments to verify their identity. The IC of the Russian Federation does not exclude the possibility of initiating criminal proceedings under the article "riots". Currently, the investigation is under article 318 (“violence against government officials”).

    Recall that information about the development of nickel deposits in the Novokhopersky district of the Voronezh region provoked numerous protests from local residents. As a result of the development, the Khoper River will be polluted, the land will lose its fertility and the local reserve, where the desman listed in the Red Book lives, will suffer, local residents are convinced.

    During the protests, capital hires repeatedly attacked the protesters. So in May, more than ten activists were brutally beaten by PSC guards.

    The Elanskoye and Yelkinskoye deposits are developed by the Mednogorsk Copper-Sulfur Plant, which is part of the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company, owned by oligarch Iskander Makhmudov.

    specially for NSI-inform
