Sergei Filin - file pic

18 January 2013              05:55 ET

The artistic director of Russia’s Bolshoi Theatre, Sergei Filin, is being treated in a Moscow hospital for severe burns to his face after a masked man threw acid in his face, police say.

The attack happened late on Thursday as Mr Filin, an award-winning ballet star, was walking home in central Moscow.

Doctors are now fighting to save his eyesight and Interfax news agency says he will be sent to a clinic abroad.

A Bolshoi spokesman said Mr Filin, 42, had suffered months of threats.

The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg in Moscow says it is suspected that he was the victim of infighting and rows between different groups of dancers at the Bolshoi.

According to the Bolshoi statement, the assailant shouted to Mr Filin as he was approaching the entrance to his apartment block, then threw acid in Mr Filin’s face.

Mr Filin then got help from a warden keeping watch over nearby cars.

  • 1970 – born in Moscow
  • 1988 – began dancing at Bolshoi
  • Winner of Russian and international awards
  • Performs abroad, including at Covent Garden, London
  • 2008 – dancing career ends
  • March 2011 – takes over as Bolshoi artistic director

The theatre’s executive director, Anatoly Iksanov, told Russian television that Mr Filin was “uncompromising” in his management style.

“If he thought a performer was unready to play a certain role, or incapable of it, he would not let the performer do it,” he said.

Tensions at the Bolshoi over its artistic programme have been widely reported in Russian media.

In 2011 two ballet stars – Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev – resigned in protest at the Bolshoi’s new repertoire.

At the time of Mr Filin’s appointment the head of the Bolshoi’s ballet troupe, Gennady Yanin, resigned after erotic photographs purporting to be him were posted on a website.

Another celebrated performer, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, sharply criticised Mr Filin in early 2012.

January 16, 2013          10:50am

Russia’s most notorious mafia boss was gunned down in broad daylight by sniper fire as he exited a restaurant in central Moscow today, according to Russia’s Interior Ministry.

Aslan Usoyan, who was more commonly known as Ded Hasan (Grandpa Hasan), was the patriarch of one of Russia’s most infamous mafia clans. The tabloid news website Lifenews.ru published a bloody photo of Usoyan’s dead body.

The mobster had just left an Azeri restaurant around 2:30 p.m. when he was struck by gunfire. Reports said the shot came from a sniper rifle fired from a nearby rooftop. Russia’s Interfax news agency reports that a female bystander was also injured by gunfire.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the shooting, but Russian news reports immediately suspected it was the work of a rival gang.

Usoyan was an ethnic Kurd born in the former republic of Georgia, which was then part of the Soviet Union. He had previously survived at least two other assassination attempts. In 2010 he was wounded but survived after being shot in the stomach by a Kalashnikov rifle. At the time investigators suggested it was over a dispute with another Georgian mob boss over construction projects for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Interfax quoted an unnamed law enforcement source saying it appears the two attacks were organized by the same people. The news agency also reported that his killing could spark renewed conflict between criminal groups.

A Russian lawmaker was quoted saying today’s hit appeared to be meticulously planned.

“There is no doubt this daring crime was well prepared,” State Duma Security and Anti-Corruption Committee Chairperson Irina Yarovaya told reporters, according to Interfax.

Yarovaya dismissed suggestions that the assassination marked a return to the bloody “wild west” days of mob warfare in the 1990s.

“We have a different country, different laws and different order now,” she said.

9 January 2013              10:32 ET

The Russian authorities have launched an investigation after a man was killed during a ride down a ski slope inside a giant inflatable ball.

Denis Burakov, 27, died after the ball – called a zorb – veered off course and fell into a deep gorge in the North Caucasus. His friend was badly injured.

The horrific incident at the Dombai ski resort on 3 January was filmed.

The authorities are trying to establish whether the death was caused “through providing unsafe services”.

They say they want to question three owners of the zorb ride, who are reportedly on the run.

Extreme sport

A video shot by one of Mr Burakov’s friends shows how the zorb first rolls down the intended path – but then suddenly bounces off course.

A man waiting for the zorb at the bottom of the hill is then seen desperately trying to catch it, before the transparent ball falls down the nearly 1km-deep gorge below Mount Mussa-Achitara.

The ball finally stopped on a frozen lake.

Mr Burakov died of his injuries, and his friend Vladimir Shcherbov, 33, remains at hospital.

Zorbing – effectively throwing yourself down a slope in a giant ball – was invented in New Zealand in 2000 and is now a popular extreme adventure sport around the world.

It involves a giant plastic ball, which has two skins – one inside the other.

The person zorbing is in the area between the skins, which is pumped up with air.

from:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-20962906

——————————————————————————————–

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letter of the name.

Vladimir Shcherbov

4 (d is the 4th letter of the alphabet) + 9 (i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) + 13 ( m is the 13th letter of the alphabet) = 26

So the number 26 rules his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

26 = Photos.  In the news.  Making headlines.

Wednesday December 26, 2012             1:53a.m.

A gas pipeline blast followed by a mild earthquake has struck Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi, which will host the 2014 Winter Olympics, a local government spokeswoman told Reuters on Wednesday.

Irina Gogoleva of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry said no one was hurt and there was no apparent damage to the city’s infrastructure after a 5.2 magnitude earthquake was reported at 0242 local time on Wednesday (2242 GMT on Tuesday).

“The Emergencies Ministry servicemen scoured through the city districts, bridges and electrical cables, there was no damage,” Gogoleva said, adding that the epicentre of the quake was some 150 kilometres (93 miles) off Sochi in the Black Sea.

In an unrelated incident, a gas pipeline that feeds a local power station exploded a couple of hours before the quake.

Gogoleva said the power plant had switched to fuel oil and the city was receiving electrical power. She said the reason for the blast was unknown.

Sochi, the first Russian city to have been awarded the Winter Olympics, is located on the coast close to Georgia, with whom Russia fought a brief war in 2008 over two breakaway regions. The wider volatile Caucasus region is a major source of political tension.

6 December 2012              05:37 ET

A Russian television journalist has been shot dead in the North Caucasus.

Kazbek Gekkiyev, 26, was a newsreader on state-controlled local television in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.

Attacks on journalists have become relatively common in Russia. The North Caucasus is the country’s most volatile region, where security forces are battling an Islamist insurgency.

On Thursday morning, the deputy minister of transport of Kabardino-Balkaria was injured in a bomb attack.

The official, Vladislav Dyadshenko, was taken to hospital after explosives went off near his car in Nalchik, the capital of the republic.

‘Warning to others’

Mr Gekkiyev was killed in the same city, as he returned home after an evening programme on Wednesday night.

According to witnesses, the journalist was approached on the street by two men. They reportedly checked his name and profession, and then shot him in the head.

A spokesman for Russia’s Investigative Committee called it an “outrageous crime that was aimed as a warning to other journalists who report on the fight against bandits”.

Human rights groups have complained at the beating or murder of journalists who have tried to uncover wrongdoing by Russian authorities.

However, the latest killing did not appear to fit that pattern.

Colleagues at the Vesti Kabarda-Balkaria channel said Mr Gekkiyev had never pursued any critical reports and mostly delivered official law-enforcement information.

His brother Alibek Gekkiyev told Ekho Moskvy radio that his brother was very committed to “being a professional in what he does. He has never done anything bad to anyone, on either side. He was an absolutely neutral man”.

The channel said several of its reporters had received death threats from Islamists – but that it had not been part of Mr Gekkiyev’s job to cover the Islamist insurgency.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 18 to 27 are ruled by the third letter of the name.

Kazbek Gekkiyev

z is the 26th letter of the alphabet

So the number 26 ruled his ages eighteen to twenty-seven.

26 = Television  journalist.  In the news.  Making headlines.

23 November 2012                10:37 ET

Jailed member of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Maria Alyokhina, has been transferred to solitary confinement because of tensions with other inmates.

She was moved to the cell of the Berezniki penal colony, east of Moscow, after refusing to join a hunger strike by other prisoners, her lawyer said.

The singer was jailed for two years in August for performing a crude anti-Kremlin song in Moscow’s cathedral.

Another band member, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is also in jail.

The court’s decision to sentence the women to two years each in remote prisons in eastern Russia was widely condemned.

Alyokhina, 24, was sent to a prison colony near the city of Perm, while Tolokonnikova is serving her sentence in Mordovia.

‘Punk prayer’

Alyokhina was moved to the solitary cell after other inmates started behaving aggressively towards her, Tolokonnikova’s husband Petr Verzilov quoted Alyokhina’s lawyer as saying.

He said the prison authorities had suggested the transfer and Alyokhina had agreed.

Conditions at both prisons are described as harsh

The cell is located in the so-called “punishment block” of the prison, but Alyokhina was not being kept in “the punishment mode”, he added.

Earlier, a prison service spokeswoman said: “Some tensions arose in relationships and, apparently, to prevent this situation from escalating, she decided to submit a request to the prison leadership and they moved her to a one-person cell.”

It was not immediately clear why other inmates at the Bereziniki penal colony, some 715 miles (1,150km) north-east of Moscow, were planning to stage a hunger strike.

Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova, 22, were convicted of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” over the obscenity-laced “punk prayer” against current President Vladimir Putin which they performed in Moscow’s main cathedral, Christ the Saviour, on 21 February.

On 10 October the two women lost their appeal against the sentence, but a third band member – Yekaterina Samutsevich – was freed with a suspended jail sentence.
