Melania Trump starstruck when shaking hands with Putin

2018/07/18

The face of USA's First Lady Melania Trump after her handshake with Russian President Putin has received a lot of attention in social media.

Many paid attention to a video made during the Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki, where Putin was greeting Donald Trump's wife. Everything was happening within the scope of diplomatic etiquette as Melania Trump and Vladimir Putin were shaking hands: a couple of phrases, a smile from Melania. However, everything ended abruptly, as soon as Putin stepped away from Mrs. Trump.

At this point, Melania's facial expression changed dramatically, prompting many to wonder what her face was expressing - fear, fright, frustration or something else.

Social networkers assumed that Melania Trump was fearful of either the moment or the Russian president himself. Others believe that Melanaa got very excited.

Putin signs decree to abolish secret Novichok lab in Russia

2018/07/18

President Putin signed a decree to abolish the closed town of Shihany  in the Saratov region of Russia from January 1, 2019. According to unconfirmed information that appeared in Western publications, it was at the local military research base in Shihany, where Novichok nerve agent was first produced.

The history of the town of Shihany started in 1928. In 1961, a town-forming enterprise was built on the territory of the town - the State Institute of Organic Synthesis Technology. Delegations of foreign citizens from the countries of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had visited the town several times.

In accordance with the decree, the Russian government and the authorities of the Saratov region shall take all necessary measures to liquidate the town of Shihany. The region will also receive interbudgetary transfers of 33.2 million rubles in 2019 and 30.5 million rubles in 2020 to ensure the budget balance.

Shihany, also known as Volsk-17 and Volsk-18, is home to about 5,500 people. The town received the status of a Closed Administrative Territorial Unit on 30 June 1997, when then President Boris Yeltsin signed a relevant decree to ensure safe operation of the State Institute of Organic Synthesis Technology. The institute used to be considered the most important chemical weapons development center in the USSR.

The special status provided for strict restrictions to enter the town, imposed certain rules for residence and excluded flights above its territory.

The British authorities claimed that former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with Novichok nerve agent. The notorious poisoning incident took place in Salisbury on March 11, 2018. London accused the Russian authorities of organizing a chemical attack on the UK.

Meanwhile, the head of the Saratov branch of Shihany Institute of Organic Chemistry and Technology, Andrei Karasev, said that the institute has not been producing anything since 2005. There is a new enterprise operating in the town under the Convention on the Destruction of Chemical Weapons, the official added.
