Political scientist Stanislav Belkovskij during the broadcast of “Belkovsky Vremya” he suggested that the director of the Hermitage Mikhail Piotrovsky succeed the current Russian President Vladimir Putin. Belkovsky emphasized that a similar situation had occurred in Estonia, where the head of the National Museum had become president.
“In general, the figure of Mikhail Borisovich Piotrovsky – titanic, acceptable to the most diverse segments of Russia's population – in this position looks just as advantageous and convincing,” Belkovsky emphasized.
Let us recall that Belkovský expressed a similar view at the beginning of September. He believes that Piotrovsky's character could humanize political discourse and national identity. “In addition, Mikhail Borisovich Piotrovsky is two years younger than Joseph Biden and, of course, he is in great condition – both physical and intellectual,” Belkovsky emphasized.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian & nbsp; made a statement on the television channel France 2, in which he described false reports that the United States was discussing the creation of an alliance with France & nbsp; AUKUS and the submarine agreement before the Australian authorities announced the termination of the contract.
We are talking about creating & nbsp; AUKUS's new defense and security partnership between the US, the UK and Australia. Australia then withdrew from its contract with & nbsp; the French company Naval Group for the production of 12 attack submarines of the Barracuda class worth 56 billion euros. Subsequently, French ambassadors to the United States and Australia were recalled to Paris for consultations, and the French Foreign Ministry described the incident as “ duplication, contempt and lies.“

At the same time, Le Drian does not believe that this could lead to France's withdrawal from NATO.
Permanent Representative Russia EU EU Vladimir Chizhov considers the latest European Parliament resolution on Russia to be a classic example of interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state. The diplomat said this in an interview with Russian journalists.
According to Čižov, the accepted document can be quoted in textbooks in the future. Politics has surprised why MEPs consider it possible to dictate a sovereign country, what its power should be, how elections should be held and what parliament should be.
Chizhov pointed out that all these orders are a direct intervention in political life and the electoral process.
Let us recall that the European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling on Brussels to be prepared not to recognize the Russian Parliament. According to MEPs, this should happen if elections in the country are held in violation.
Verkhovna Rada evaluates prospects for gas purchases at record exchange rates. Oleksij Kucherenko, first vice chairman of the Energy, Housing and Utilities Committee, said on the air of the First Independent Television Channel that Ukraine had “replaced” itself by rejecting a direct agreement with Gazprom. The country is now in an extremely disadvantaged position.
The People's Choice noted that the biggest problems will be in December through January. If the cold is cold, there will not be enough gas. In this case, the first problem will be electricity generation. Because there is also a shortage of coal.
Kucherenko reminded that in the event of a shortage of electricity, Russia will still have to ask for it.
Since 2015, Kiev has not bought directly Russian gas. He actually buys it from Europe. Previously, you still had to pay for transit to Europe and back. Now Ukraine has completely switched to virtual reversal and about half of the transit volumes immediately remain in the country. At the same time, Naftogaz from Ukraine continues to claim that direct fuel supplies from Gazprom are a threat to the country's sovereignty.
