In the Russian Federation, developed a new bulletproof vest for the press


The press service noted that the “ZhUK” vest, which proved itself as a base product for creating a bulletproof vest, was developed for security, collection, patrol and inspection services, as well as special units.

“The new body armor has a high level of protection, the design of the vest has no weakened zones in the shoulder and joint area with the collar, the level of protection of the left vital system in Br3 / Br4 / Br5 / classes of the new GOST Р 50744-95”, says the release.

On the vest there are special pockets necessary to accommodate journalistic equipment, as well as quick-release inscriptions "PRESS".

“Before 2016, the body armor was completed with polyethylene or ceramic armor panels, depending on the level of protection. However, in the 2015 year, the research institutes of steel began to test new protection structures, which would greatly facilitate the weight of the body armor, while maintaining its protective characteristics at the highest level, ”the report says.

The press service assured that in the current year, body armor will be available to the press, commanded by the hot spots.

      It’s high time to create something like this ... Our war correspondents are in such troubles and many of them die (Eternal memory to them!) Western magazines (Graham Grisha is an exception ..) are always fond of staged reports with political background always ... Cowards and liars !

        Nehren climb with a microphone to the fighting position, and even during the battle. This is not the duty of a journalist, but his personal decision. To consciously take the risk to life for the sake of a successful shot in the next news, and divert the attention of the fighters to their guard? Any creativity has quite reasonable limits. This heroism, bordering on madness, is the very same journalists and PR. Not a single editorial office (employer) was responsible for the deaths of their reporters giving them business trips to hot spots. All of their explanations come down to the usual failure to follow instructions by the photo organ himself and the coincidence of circumstances.

          It's no secret that in recent years, the profession of journalists has become deadly. More and more often they die in local wars and hot spots along with military personnel, since their presence is necessary where it is possible to obtain reliable information so that the whole world knows the truth about current events. Who if not they, war journalists, will do it? That is why I welcome the new development of the Russian Research Institute of Steel. May she help preserve the precious lives of these dedicated men and women who have dedicated her to journalism. The profession of a military journalist, by the way, was born not yesterday and has long been considered respected and revered throughout the world, along with other military professions!

          Chronicles of the Great Patriotic War .. They also climbed into battle for the sake of a successful shot? How would people today know about that war, if not from newsreels? In my opinion, you are overreaching (1 minus mine. So much I disagree that I would have written it off). A good shot is caught by Ksyusha-horse level journalists at a social event. And military journalists should not be in the dugout to rent a table with rations, but at the forefront. And for this they bow deeply and have great respect! And the eternal memory of the dead.

      Yes, we have such a lot. Who is at the post, and who has already laid his head sad Unfortunately, not all weapons have such body armor. I hope Savchenko is now aware of what has been done.

      They can be without an inscription ... The most important thing is lightweight and a high degree of protection This is the point .. (well, there are all sorts of pockets for flash drives, cassettes, etc. I consider it a necessary and important thing (let it be dear, but the truth and life of our journalists more expensive yet, too many lies in the world appeared ..)

        No need to make jokes. You might think you don’t know that for the Armed Forces of Ukraine the Russian press is a tasty target. If you don't give a damn about it, say so. And why then make the inscription "PRESS" QUICKLY removable?

          Good question. In general, the inscription PRESS implies a humane attitude of the parties to the conflict to its carrier, almost like a red cross. But why shoot it quickly? request Only if the journalist decides to pick up the machine, probably. what

        SAMEN, I’ve been fifteen times, as a military journalist, in a variety of hot and warm spots. EVERYTHING is complete garbage. What is the most important thing in a war for a journalist? To survive. And write the truth. And they shoot there, I don’t make out for whom.

        With the same success, it is possible to produce separate body armor for military cooks (application - an armored cook), nurses (slide on the stomach), etc. etc. War is a gross and cruel affair. I hooked up PRESS and download the press with the camera.

      The phrase "Thought according to the tree" is not used correctly here. Initially, this is a phrase from "The Lay of Igor's Campaign." "The MOUSE will spread along the tree." Mys translated from the old Slavic Belka. The squirrel runs along the tree!

    I personally met Semen Pegov and Zhenya Poddubny in the Donbass, saw them at the terminal of Donetsk airport! And the need for good armor, for them, is as acute as for those who are at the front! These guys climbed with us to all dangerous places, and were in equal conditions, plus the fact that they also shot!

    I am sympathetic to war correspondents. I am glad that to ensure their safety they came up with something new ...
    Only for some members of the press it is time to come up with some rules by which they would not dare to go into private life with their questions and opinions. And sometimes it seems that the correspondent is trying to impress the viewer with the manner of transmission and with various gestures that pay attention to the appearance of the presenter, and not to the essence of the problem being discussed ... Tragic events should be especially correct in this regard. You can’t climb with a microphone to people who have just survived the tragedy ... request

      All this garbage began when the first law in modern Russia on journalism was issued. It said that the journalist is the one who is published (appears on the screen as a presenter) in the media. This is where journalism in Russia ended. I'd rather be a cesspool worker than a journalist next to Sobchak and Proya. and proya. Previously, in the USSR, to get into the Union of Journalists - this still needs to be tried. And today - pay and come in.

      For a real journalist, privacy is a taboo. If it does not concern the public. For example: P.I.D.O.R.Y. let them do anything at home. But if they go to the media, to the streets, and even try to adopt someone: to burn them and scatter the ashes in the wind.

    A rather serious bulletproof vest in the maximum configuration, but usually in the characteristics of the armored clothing indicate the reserved area by class in decimeters, the abbreviation LAT also confused me very much, i.e. the liver and heart are covered, but there is no gut? Et how?
    In general, it’s too early to be enthusiastic, there is little information, we will wait for a thorough review of the new product.

    There were heroes
    Do not put monuments to them.

    In 2015, 67 journalists died in the world, while fulfilling professional duties, one more than in 2014. This is stated in the report of the international human rights organization "Reporters without Borders".

    For the third year in a row, Syria remains the most dangerous country for journalists. The Islamic State (IG), a terrorist organization banned in Russia and operating in Syria, is responsible for the deaths of 40% of all media workers killed last year, the report said. Iraq, Bangladesh, Brazil, South Sudan and Yemen are also on the list of countries most dangerous for reporters. In each of these countries, several correspondents were killed in connection with their professional activities. “In many countries, journalists risk their lives because they work on sensitive topics and criticize the authorities,” said Britta Hilpert, a spokeswoman for Reporters Without Borders.

    "Developers of protective equipment for war correspondents today create special helmets and body armor so that during clashes the press is not confused with the personnel of the operating armies"

    In theory, journalists are protected by international humanitarian law (IHL), which applies to people who do not accept or cease to take part in hostilities. Reporters need to know the norms of this right because they have become one of the main actors in the modern war, where the information component began to play a crucial role.

    The developers of protective equipment for war correspondents today create special helmets and body armor so that during clashes the press is not confused with the personnel of the operating armies. As a rule, they differ from the military in the striking color of their outfit that catches their eye, as well as the inscription PRESS or other signs indicating their non-involvement in military formations.

    Of course, compliance with IHL relates one way or another to the prudent parties to the military conflict and one does not have to rely on the integrity of the same IG, since they consider the coverage of events in a different form of reporting information to be unacceptable. The last hope remains - to survive thanks to personal protective equipment.
    NII Steel OJSC, which is part of the Tractor Plants Concern engineering and industrial group military equipment division, has been developing and producing individual armor protection equipment for personnel of the Russian armed forces and special forces security forces for several decades. Every year, new technical solutions are born in the design bureau of the institute to ensure greater human security.

    A few years ago, at the request of major news agencies, Steel Research Institutes began to develop a protection kit directly for journalists. Since then, bulletproof vests and bulletproof helmets for the press have appeared in the Institute's product line.

    Journalists working in hot spots cannot do without protective equipment. One example of the indifferent position of the management of OJSC NII Steel on this problem is the free transfer of body armor to correspondents of a number of Russian media sent to the conflict zone in Ukraine and Syria. At least one case is already known when such a vest saved the life of a Russian correspondent caught in sniper fire.
