ДТП під Києвом: причетного водія заарештовано на 2 місяці

Шевченківський районний суд Києва заарештував на 2 місяці без права на заставу водія «Мерседеса», якого підозрюють у вчиненні смертельної ДТП на Столичному шосе. Про це 14 липня повідомили у прокуратурі.

«Прокурор у судовому засіданні серед іншого зазначила, що підозрюваний раніше неодноразово притягувався до кримінальної відповідальності, у тому числі за ДТП з тяжкими наслідками, за що відбував покарання. Також він 7 разів притягувався до адміністративної відповідальності за керування транспортним засобом у стані алкогольного чи наркотичного сп’яніння», – мовиться у повідомленні прокуратури.

Суд задовольнив клопотання прокуратури у повному обсязі.

 

12 липня, за даними слідства, нетверезий водій «Мерседеса» зіткнувся з іншим авто, яке рухалося попереду в попутному напрямку. Після цього він виїхав на зустрічну смугу й зіткнувся з автомобілем «Хюндай». Унаслідок інциденту водій та троє пасажирів авто «Хюндая» загинули. Серед них – двоє дітей восьми та 10 років.

Хлопчика 2006 року народження доставили до лікарняного закладу для надання медичної допомоги.

39-річного водія «Мерседеса» затримали.



МЗС: до України прибули 300 апаратів ШВЛ з В’єтнаму, до кінця серпня буде ще 600

До України прибули 300 апаратів штучної вентиляції легень з В’єтнаму, повідомило Міністерство закордонних справ України.

«До кінця серпня планується передача ще 600 апаратів в’єтнамської компанії «Vingroup JSC», – заявили у відомстві.

Голова МЗС Дмитро Кулеба повідомляв, що держава не заплатила за в’єтнамські апарати ШВЛ «жодної копійки», оскільки це – гуманітарна допомогу. За його словами, загальна вартість першої партії апаратів ШВЛ сягає понад 2,3 мільйона доларів. Він обіцяє, що «УкрМедПостач» проведе перевірку та сертифікацію отриманих апаратів в Україні.

 



HRW закликала українську владу розслідувати погрози на адресу співзасновниці «Заборони»

Правозахисна організація Human Rights Watch закликала українську владу розслідувати погрози на адресу співзасновниці видання «Заборона» Катерини Сергацкової.

«Журналісти не повинні боятися за свої життя через теми, про які вони пишуть. Українська влада повинна негайно розслідувати ці погрози та гарантувати безпеку для Сергацкової та її сім’ї», – заявив директор правозахисної організації Human Rights Watch з питань Європи та Центральної Азії Г’ю Вільямсон.

3 липня «Заборона» опублікувала статтю про ймовірні зв’язки між лідерами ультраправих та неонацистських груп з керівництвом фактчекінгового проєкту StopFake. У відповідь організація розкритикувала матеріал і назвала його частиною тренду «цькування та залякування від проросійського медіа».

Згодом коментатори в соціальних мережах почали погрожувати Сергацковій через нібито проросійську пропаганду. 11 липня український журналіст зі 130 тисячами підписників опублікував у Facebook фото Сергацкової та її сина, розповів деталі її біографії та припустив, що вона працює на російську розвідку.

У коментарях дописувачі погрожували співзасновниці «Заборони» вбивством та фізичним насиллям, публікували її адресу та фотографію її будинку. Хоча пост згодом видалили, журналіст продовжив образи на адресу Сергацкової.

У великій кількості дописів згадується, що вона була громадянкою Росії. Український паспорт журналістка отримала у 2015 році.

Сама Сергацкова заявила, що вона була об’єктом онлайн-цькування і раніше. Зокрема, через розслідування діяльності українських правоохоронців. Водночас цього разу цькування викликає в неї більше страху.



На Донбасі за добу загинули троє українських військових – штаб ООС

У зоні бойових дій на Донбасі 13 липня загинули троє українських військових повідомляє штаб операції Об’єднаних сил. За цими даними, ще двоє військових постраждали – один має поранення, інший – бойове травмування.

«Під час евакуації тіла загиблого військовослужбовця поблизу селища Зайцеве, пересуваючись до місця загибелі нашого захисника, евакуаційна група потрапила у заздалегідь підготовлену засідку окупантів. Ворог безжально застосував стрілецьке озброєння практично впритул розстрілявши представників евакуаційної групи. В результаті обстрілу загинув військовий медик, один воїн отримав поранення, а ще один – бойове травмування. Подальші евакуаційні заходи були неможливі, адже ворог продовжив обстріл вже з гранатометів різних систем та великокаліберних кулеметів. На даний час тіла наших захисників перебувають на місці обстрілу та потребують евакуації», – ідеться в ранковому зведенні.

За даними штабу ООС, російські гібридні сили за добу 13 липня 18 разів порушили режим припинення вогню, застосувавши при цьому заборонені мінськими домовленостями міномети.

В угрупованні «ДНР» стверджують, що поблизу Зайцева «диверсійно-розвідувальна група ЗСУ вийшла на міни», в результаті чого один військовий загинув, а українська сторона нібито «не поспішає евакуювати його тіло». Про загибель військового медика в повідомленні не йдеться.

В угрупованні «ЛНР» ще не інформували про бойові дії 13 липня.

 

Збройний конфлікт на Донбасі триває від 2014 року після російської окупації Криму. Україна і Захід звинувачують Росію у збройній підтримці бойовиків. Кремль відкидає ці звинувачення і заявляє, що на Донбасі можуть перебувати хіба що російські «добровольці».

За даними ООН, від березня 2014-го до 31 жовтня 2019 року внаслідок збройного конфлікту на Донбасі загинули від 13 000 до 13 200 людей.



Former AG Sessions, Trump-Backed Tuberville Compete in Alabama Primary

Voters in three U.S. states cast ballots Tuesday in primary elections to finalize the candidates who will compete in some of the closely watched races as Democrats and Republicans battle for control of the Senate in the November national election. In a Republican runoff election in Alabama, voters are deciding between former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Tommy Tuberville, a former Auburn University football coach who has the endorsement of President Donald Trump. The winner will go up against Democratic Senator Doug Jones in November. Sessions held the seat for 20 years, but resigned so he could lead the Justice Department when Trump took office in 2017.  He drew Trump’s ire when he recused himself from the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election because of several meetings he held before election day with Russia’s ambassador to the United States. Trump has continued to criticize Sessions, including a Saturday tweet calling him “a disaster who has let us all down.” Sessions dismissed Trump’s comments as “juvenile insults,” and he questioned Tuberville’s credentials, saying his opponent “relies on flashy, consultant-written talking points and TV ads instead of taking questions or debating because he’s scared he might accidentally give away the game he’s playing.” In Texas, there is a Democratic primary runoff between combat veteran Mary Jennings Hegar and state senator Royce West.  The winner will go up against Republican Senator John Cornyn.U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) speaks to reporters after opening arguments concluded in the Senate impeachment trial of U.S. President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., January 28, 2020.Cornyn has represented Texas for three terms and polls show him leading against either Hegar or West. In addition to the Senate primary, there are a number of House primaries contested Tuesday in Texas, including a battle between former Republican Congressman Pete Sessions and Renee Swann, an eye surgery co-owner and political newcomer who has the endorsement of retiring incumbent Congressman Bill Flores. The Texas voting was originally set to take place in May, but was postponed due to concerns about having people gather at polling places during the coronavirus pandemic. Election officials in the state of Maine said they have received a huge number of mail-in ballots for Tuesday’s primaries, which include an important three-way race for the Democratic nomination to go up against Republican Senator Susan Collins. Democrats are targeting Collins as one of their top hopes in unseating a Republican and trying to gain the three seats necessary to flip the current slim Republican majority in the Senate. State House speaker Sara Gideon has been the front-runner in the race with the largest campaign donations as she faces attorney Bre Kidman and activist Betsy Sweet. As of Monday, voters had requested more than 203,000 absentee ballots, which officials said was about five times the number requested during the 2018 primary election. Mail-in ballots have been a focus for leaders in many states trying to maintain voter participation this year while adhering to stay-at-home measures meant to stop the spread of the coronavirus. As in Alabama and Texas, Maine also has a few House primaries Tuesday. In the state’s second congressional district, Adrienne Bennett, Eric Brakey and Dale Crafts are competing for the Republican nomination to go up against incumbent Democratic Congressman Jared Golden.

AP Fact Check: Trump Team’s False Comfort on Schools, Virus 

President Donald Trump’s aides are misrepresenting the record on kids and the coronavirus as they push for schools to reopen. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday inaccurately characterized what the chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said on the matter. A day earlier, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos also was wrong in stating that the research shows there is no danger “in any way” if kids are in school. No such conclusion has been reached. Their comments came as Trump continued to spread falsehoods about a pandemic that is taking a disproportionate hit on the U.S. and is not under control. A look at recent claims and reality:Schools  McEnanty: “Just last week you heard Dr. Redfield say that children are not spreading this.” — Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends”  The facts: No, Dr. Robert Redfield, the CDC director, did not say that. He said officials don’t have evidence that children are “driving” infections at this point. But they have not ruled out that children spread the virus to adults. Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus coordinator, said last week the government doesn’t have enough data to show whether and to what degree kids can infect others. The bulk of data has been collected from adults and particularly from those who were sick, leaving questions about children still unanswered, Birx said. She said children under 10 are the least tested age group. The officials did not reach a conclusion that “children are not spreading this.” Nor does the evidence prove that they are. The government has counted tens of thousands of children who have been infected with the virus and in some cases hospitalized. Overall, public health officials believe the virus is less dangerous to children than adults. ——Education Secretary Betsy DeVos speaks during a White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing at the Department of Education building, July 8, 2020, in Washington.Devos: “There’s nothing in the data that suggests that kids being in school is in any way dangerous.” — Sunday on “Fox News Sunday.” The facts: Not so. Like McEnany, DeVos is suggesting certainty where none exists as she urged schools to provide full-time, in-person learning in the fall even with community transmission of COVID-19 rising in many parts of the U.S. It’s premature to claim that there are no risks “in any way” seen in data. How significant a risk has not been established. The CDC in April studied the pandemic’s effect on different ages in the U.S. and reviewed preliminary research in China, where the coronavirus started. It said social distancing is important for children, too, for their own safety and that of others. “Whereas most COVID-19 cases in children are not severe, serious COVID-19 illness resulting in hospitalization still occurs in this age group,” the CDC study says.  In May, the CDC also warned doctors to be on the lookout for a rare but life-threatening inflammatory reaction in some children who’ve had the coronavirus. The condition had been reported in more than 100 children in New York and in some kids in several other states and in Europe, with some deaths.  The agency’s current guidance for communities on the reopening of K-12 schools says the goal is to “help protect students, teachers, administrators, and staff and slow the spread of COVID-19.” The guidance says “full sized, in person classes” present the “highest risk” of spreading the virus and advises face masks, spreading out of desks, staggered schedules, eating meals in classrooms instead of the cafeteria and “staying home when appropriate” to help avert spikes in virus cases.   ——Virus Trump: “Deaths in the U.S. are way down.” — tweet on July 6, one of at least a half dozen heralding a drop in daily deaths from the virus. The facts: It’s true that deaths dipped as infections spiked in many parts of the country. But deaths lag sickness. And now, the widely expected upturn in U.S. deaths has begun, driven by fatalities in states in the South and West, according to data analyzed by The Associated Press. “It’s a false narrative to take comfort in a lower rate of death,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Tuesday. He advised Americans: “Don’t get yourself into false complacency.” The new AP analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University shows the seven-day rolling average for daily reported deaths in the U.S. increased to 664 on Friday from 578 two weeks ago, as deaths rose in more than half the states. That’s still well below the lethal numbers of April. “It’s consistently picking up,” said William Hanage, a Harvard University infectious diseases researcher. “And it’s picking up at the time you’d expect it to.” ——Trump: “For the 1/100th time, the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING is much bigger and better. We have tested 40,000,000 people. If we did 20,000,000 instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED!” — tweet Thursday. The facts: His notion that infections are high only because the U.S. diagnostic testing has increased is false. His own top public health officials have shot down this line of thinking. Infections are rising because people are infecting each other more than they were when most everyone was hunkered down. It’s true that increased testing also contributes to the higher numbers. When you look harder, you’re going to see more. But the testing has uncovered a worrisome trend: The percentage of tests coming back positive for the virus is on the rise across nearly the entire country.  That’s a clear demonstration that sickness is spreading and that the U.S. testing system is falling short. “A high rate of positive tests indicates a government is only testing the sickest patients who seek out medical attention and is not casting a wide enough net,” says the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, a primary source of updated information on the pandemic. Americans are being confronted with long lines at testing sites, often disqualified if they are not showing symptoms and, if tested, forced to wait many days for results.  —— Trump on the coronavirus: “We have the lowest Mortality Rate in the World.” – tweet Tuesday. The facts:  This statement is wholly unsupported. An accurate death rate is impossible to know. Every country tests and counts people differently, and some are unreliable in reporting cases. Without knowing the true number of people who become infected, it cannot be determined what portion of them die. Using a count kept by Johns Hopkins University, you can compare the number of recorded deaths with the number of reported cases. That count shows the U.S. experiencing more deaths as a percentage of cases than most other countries now being hit hard with the pandemic. The statistics look better for the U.S. when the list is expanded to include European countries that were slammed early on by the virus but now appear to have it under control. Even then, the U.S. is not shown to be among the best in avoiding death. Such calculations, though, do not provide a reliable measurement of actual death rates, because of the variations in testing and reporting, and the Johns Hopkins tally is not meant to be such a measure. The only way to tell how many cases have gone uncounted, and therefore what percentage of infected people have died from the disease, is to do another kind of test comprehensively, of people’s blood, to find how many people bear immune system antibodies to the virus. Globally, that is only being done in select places. ——Economy Trump: “Job growth is biggest in history.” — tweet Wednesday. The facts: Yes, but only because it is following the greatest job losses in history, by far.  The U.S. economy shed more than 22 million jobs in March and April, wiping out nearly a decade of job growth in just two months, as the viral outbreak intensified and nearly all states shut down nonessential businesses. Since then, 7.5 million, or about one-third, of those jobs have been recovered as businesses reopened. Even after those gains, the unemployment rate is 11.1%, down from April and May but otherwise higher than at any point since the Depression.  ——Trump: “Economy and Jobs are growing MUCH faster than anyone (except me!) expected.” — tweet Wednesday. The facts: Not really. It’s true that May’s gain of 2.7 million jobs was unexpected. Economists had forecast another month of job losses. But most economists projected hiring would sharply rebound by June or at the latest July, once businesses began to reopen. The gains kicked in a month earlier than forecast. Now, though, coronavirus cases are rising in most states, imperiling the climb back. In six states representing one-third of the economy — Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, and Texas — governors are reversing their reopening plans, and the restart is on pause in 15 other states. Such reversals are keeping layoffs elevated and threatening to weaken hiring.  —— Trump team on BidenTrump campaign ad, playing out a scenario where a person needing help calls the police in a Biden presidency and gets a voice recording: “You have reached the 911 police emergency line. Due to defunding of the police department, we’re sorry but no one is here to take your call.” The ad closes with the message: “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” The facts: Biden has not joined the call of protesters who demanded “defund the police” after Floyd’s killing. He’s proposed more money for police, conditioned to improvements in their practices. “I don’t support defunding the police,” Biden said last month in a CBS interview. But he said he would support tying federal aid to police based on whether “they meet certain basic standards of decency, honorableness and, in fact, are able to demonstrate they can protect the community, everybody in the community.” Biden’s criminal justice agenda, released long before he became the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee, proposes more federal money for “training that is needed to avert tragic, unjustifiable deaths” and hiring more officers to ensure that departments are racially and ethnically reflective of the populations they serve. Specifically, he calls for a $300 million infusion into existing federal community policing grant programs. That adds up to more money for police, not defunding law enforcement. Biden also wants the federal government to spend more on education, social services and struggling areas of cities and rural America, to address root causes of crime. Democrats, meanwhile, have pointed to Trump’s repeated proposals in the administration’s budget to cut community policing and mediation programs at the Justice Department. Congressional Republicans say the program can be effectively merged with other divisions, but Democrats have repeatedly blocked the effort. The program has been used to help provide federal oversight of local police departments. Despite proposed cuts, Attorney General William Barr last month said that the department would use the COPS program funding to hire over 2,700 police officers at nearly 600 departments across the country. ——Vice President Mike Pence: Biden “said that he would, quote, absolutely cut funding for law enforcement.” — remarks Thursday in Philadelphia. Republican National Committee email: “In the wake of rioting, looting, and tragic murders ripping apart communities across the country, Joe Biden said ‘Yes, absolutely’ he wants to defund the police.” — email Wednesday from Steve Guest, RNC’s rapid response director. The facts: That’s misleading, a selective use of Biden’s words on the subject. The RNC email links to an excerpted video clip of Biden’s conversation with liberal activist Ady Barkan, who endorsed Biden on Wednesday after supporting Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries. A full recording of that conversation, provided by the Biden campaign to The Associated Press, shows he again declined to support defunding police. Barkan raises the issue of police reform and asks whether Biden would funnel money into social services, mental health counseling and affordable housing to help reduce civilian interactions with police. Biden responds that he is calling for increased funding for mental health providers but “that’s not the same as getting rid of or defunding all the police” and that both approaches are needed, including more money for community police. Asked again by Barkan, “so we agree that we can redirect some of the funding,” Biden then answers “absolutely yes.” Biden then gives the caveat that he means “not just redirect” federal money potentially but “condition” it on police improvements. “If they don’t eliminate choke holds, they don’t get (federal) grants, if they don’t do the following, they don’t get any help,” Biden replied.  “The vast majority of all police departments are funded by the locality, funded by the municipality, funded by the state,” he added. “It’s only the federal government comes in on top of that, and so it says you want help, you have to do the following reforms.” ——Biden on TrumpBiden: “President Trump claimed to the American people that he was a wartime leader, but instead of taking responsibility, Trump has waved a white flag, revealing that he ordered the slowing of testing and having his administration tell Americans that they simply need to ‘live with it.” – statement Wednesday marking the rise in U.S. coronavirus infections to more than 3 million. The facts: To be clear, the government did not slow testing on the orders of the president.  Trump at first denied he was joking when he told a Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally on June 20 that he said “to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please'” because “they test and they test.” Days later he said he didn’t really mean it. In any event, a succession of his public-health officials testified to Congress that the president never asked them to slow testing and that they were doing all they could to increase it. But testing remains markedly insufficient.  



Court Refuses to Order Houston to Host Texas GOP Gathering

The Texas Supreme Court on Monday upheld Houston’s refusal to allow the state Republican convention to hold in-person events in the city due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The court dismissed an appeal of a state district judge’s denial of a temporary restraining order sought by the state Republican Party. Shortly after the ruling, GOP leaders said they would call a meeting of the party’s executive committee to “finalize our path forward.” A separate court hearing was ongoing Monday in Harris County, where Houston is located, in which a different judge was hearing the party’s arguments to allow the convention to go forward.  The state GOP convention had been scheduled to begin Thursday at Houston’s downtown convention center and was expected to draw thousands of participants. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, a Democrat, said last week that he had directed city lawyers to terminate the contract because he believed the event could not be held safely. He denied that the convention was cancelled due to political differences and cited the potential risk to service workers and first responders if the virus spread through the convention. The state party sued a day later, alleging the city illegally breached the contract and accusing Turner of shedding “crocodile tears.” “The Party argues it has constitutional rights to hold a convention and engage in electoral activities, and that is unquestionably true,” the Supreme Court wrote in its opinion. “But those rights do not allow it to simply commandeer use of the Center.” State District Judge Larry Weiman last week sided with Turner, citing Houston statistics that show major hospitals exceeding their base intensive-care capacity due to an influx of COVID-19 patients.  Texas has set daily records in recent days for the number of COVID-19 deaths and confirmed cases. Top officials in Houston have called for the city to lock back down as area hospitals strain to accommodate an onslaught of patients. The Texas Medical Association withdrew its sponsorship of the state GOP convention and asked organizers to cancel in-person gatherings. As the virus has surged throughout the state in June and July, Gov. Greg Abbott, the state’s top Republican, has reversed some business reopenings and broadly required the use of face masks.  State GOP chair James Dickey had insisted that organizers can hold the event safely. Prior to Turner’s move to cancel the convention, Dickey said the party had planned to institute daily temperature scans, provide masks, and install hand sanitizer stations.
