В небольшом карельском городе Сортавала случился свой Хабаровск: после того как власти региона лишили полномочий выбранного ими мэра Сергея Крупина, местные жители решили выйти на митинг в его поддержку. Корреспонденты сайта Север.Реалии выяснили, как Крупин нашел денег для города и почему сортавальцы не хотят ими ни с кем делиться.
Сортавала – город на берегу Ладожского озера с населением в 18 тысяч жителей. До 1940 года он был в составе Финляндии, о чем и сегодня напоминают уникальные здания, ставшие памятниками архитектуры. Часть уже утрачена, но некоторые и сейчас притягивают туристов. Туристов в Сортавале немало: организованными группами или поодиночке они гуляют по городу в ожидании “Метеора” на остров Валаам или поезда до горного парка Рускеала. Раньше Сортавала была промежуточной точкой между Рускеалой и Валаамом, сейчас – это место, где хочется задержаться и побыть подольше. Сортавальцы благодарят за это своего мэра – Сергея Крупина. 28 июля они вышли на митинг, чтобы выступить против его отставки, куда его отправили местные депутаты.
Bill Clinton stayed in Jeffrey Epstein‘s villa on the billionaire pedophile’s private Caribbean island because he owed him ‘a favor’, Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts told investigators in newly unsealed documents. In nine-year-old testimony that was only made public for the first time on Thursday, Roberts said Clinton visited the private Caribbean island of Little Saint James some time after his presidency ended in 2001.Roberts told investigators that she, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell and two other ‘young girls’ from New York were also on the island at the time. When Roberts, who now goes by the name Guiffre, asked Epstein what Clinton was doing on the island, she claims he laughed and said: ‘He owes me a favor.”He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke,’ she said. The former president has repeatedly denied ever visiting Epstein’s island in the Caribbean. He has also always maintained he knew nothing of Epstein’s abuse of young girls.
Bill Clinton visited Jeffrey Epstein’s private island with ‘two young girls from New York’ and stayed in the billionaire’s private villa, Virginia Roberts claimed in newly-unsealed testimony
Roberts gave the testimony to lawyers back in 2011 when she was suing Epstein’s alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, for defamation.
When Russian President Vladimir Putin was preparing for last month’s nationwide vote on potentially extending his rule until 2036, he let the veil slip on part of the calculation behind the constitutional change.
‘If this doesn’t happen, then in about two years – and I know this from personal experience – the normal rhythm of work of many parts of government will be replaced by a search for a possible successor,’ Putin said in an interview with state TV channel Rossiya.
‘We must be working, not looking for successors.’+11
Former Kremlin adviser Sergei Pugachev, pictured above, said Putin had been grappling with the question of succession since at least 2006
Public discontent over Putin’s rule has begun to spill into the open in Russia’s Far East, where tens of thousands have marched in protest for the past three weekends.

A Russian-born massage therapist who is accused of helping depraved financier Jeffrey Epstein find new young wpmen to sexually abuse is attempting to move on from her role as an alleged sex trafficking recruiter.
Since her time allegedly working for Epstein, Natalya Malyshev has tried to start a new life in West Hollywood.
But despite her attempts to leave the past behind amid the furor over Epstein’s death in prison and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell‘s arrest, the now 38-year-old’s involvement was recently brought to light in hit Netflix documentary series Filthy Rich.
An investigation by DailyMail.com tracked Malyshev to her current home, where she has been living a hermit-like existence during the coronavirus pandemic.

South African-born Sarah Ransome claims Malyshev lured her into flying to Epstein’s private ‘Pedophile Island’ in the Caribbean in 2006

Sarah Ransome, a South African native who says she was abused by Epstein in her early 20s, says she was introduced by Malyshev
Sources close to the Russian-born professional massage therapist insist that she is just another Epstein victim who has been left traumatized by what he did to her.
But the claims made by Epstein victim Sarah Ransome in Filthy Rich about Malyshev’s role are extremely disturbing.
South African-born Sarah claims it was Malyshev who lured her into flying to Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean in 2006.
Once on the enclave in the US Virgin Islands, Sarah says Epstein’s abuse started ‘from the very first day’.
Sarah told the documentary makers: ‘Natalya called me and said that he (Epstein) wanted to see me in his room.
‘And there was this massage table and then I was asked to go on the table and he just raped me.’
Years later Malyshev was named as a defendant alongside Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Maxwell ‘lieutenant’ Sarah Kellen and Epstein assistant Lesley Groff in a civil lawsuit brought by Sarah in January 2017.
Kellen and Groff are currently believed to be under investigation by the FBI for their role in the abuse.
Court documents show that Malyshev was accused of being ‘one of the enterprise’s recruiters of young females’, that she allegedly reported back to superiors including Maxwell and was paid for her efforts.
The documents also confirm that she was herself was a victim of Epstein’s ring.
They state: ‘The nature of [Epstein’s] sex trafficking ring enabled victims themselves, such as Defendant Malyshev, to elevate their status to that of a paid recruiter of other victims.’
Message pad notes found at Epstein’s residence at his Palm Beach, Florida, marked ‘IMPORTANT MESSAGE’ and dating back to 2004 and 2005, appear to show Malyshev scheduling women to meet with Epstein and his clients
Flight logs for the Lolita Express, the private jet that Epstein used to ferry young girls and celebrity friends around in, show that Malyshev flew on it several times in the mid-2000s
The suit was settled out of court in December 2018 and those close to Malyshev claim that she was never served precisely because it was realized she was a victim herself.
Then in May this year the Netflix series was released and the skeletons in Malyshev closet were paraded again for the world to see.
In the series, Sarah Ransome claims she first met Malyshev while out nightclubbing after arriving in New York aged 22 in September 2006.

She said: ‘I met this girl, Natalya Malyshev. She immediately befriended me, she became like my instant best friend.
‘She said that she knew this amazing guy, he was a philanthropist, this guy genuinely is a really kind guy and, you know, whatever my dream is he can make it come true.
‘Natalya said ”This guy would really like to meet you, we’re going to the cinema”.
‘It was Jeffrey, of course. He was charming, charismatic, friendly, caring, where he actually listened to me.
‘And then I get a call, I think it was the next day or two days after.
‘It was Natalya going ”You’ll never believe it, Jeffrey really thought you were cool”.
‘This guy wants to help me out, pay for my education. He was going to get me into the Fashion Institute of Technology.
‘Natalya said ‘He’s got this private island and we’re going on his private plane and it’s amazing, it’s like a tropical paradise’ and I’m like down for going to a private island on a private plane.’
Flight logs for the Lolita Express, the private jet that Epstein used to ferry young girls and celebrity friends around in, show that Malyshev flew on it several times in the mid-2000s.
Message pad notes found at Epstein’s residence at his Palm Beach, Florida, marked ‘IMPORTANT MESSAGE’ and dating back to 2004 and 2005, also appear to show Malyshev scheduling women to meet with Epstein and his clients.
One dated to December 2004 notes a call from ‘Natalie’, with the message ‘She spoke with Jean-Luc and everything it’s ok’ – an apparent reference to former modelling agency manager and alleged Epstein accomplice Jean-Luc Brunel.

Sources close to Malyshev told DailyMail.com she is willing to cooperate with authorities in their investigations if asked to do so.
One told DailyMail.com: ‘Natalya was a victim in this, big time. She did not know what was going to happen to Sarah Ransome on that island.
‘Sarah Ransome and her lawyer Brad Edwards never served Natalya in Sarah’s civil lawsuit and the case was ultimately dismissed.
‘It was litigated for almost two years and in December 2018 it was settled.
‘The reason Natalya wasn’t served is because it was realized that she was a victim.
‘Sarah Ransome had no idea what she was getting herself involved with but nor did Natalya and hundreds of other girls and young women.
‘Natalya is in a very fragile emotional state. The documentary used innuendo that she was a hired gun running around town when in fact she was a victim.’+22
Natalya, who was known as Natalie, has laid low over the years attempting to hide from the attention Jeffrey Epstein and his associates attract +22
‘Natalya is very willing and will not shy away from cooperating with the investigators at the FBI if they want to speak to her about this matter and they know that,’ a source said+22

‘Epstein basically asked any girl he saw more than once ”Do you have any friends? Bring them along,’ the source added.
‘He had a magnetic and powerful presence and people wanted to be around him, very famous people who for 20 or 30 years considered him a guru of sorts.
‘He was the conman of all conmen.
‘Natalya is very willing and will not shy away from cooperating with the investigators at the FBI if they want to speak to her about this matter and they know that.’
When approached, Malyshev said she had no comment to make.

A body modification enthusiast known as ‘Dragon Girl’ has unveiled the latest radical addition to her look.
NSW Central Coast woman Amber Luke has spent $120,000 on nearly 600 tattoos and extreme body modifications including a tongue split, breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers, pointed implants placed in her ears and a Brazilian butt lift.
The 25-year-old took to Instagram on Friday to reveal her latest modification, wearing blue diamond earrings that stretch her earlobes out to a whopping 32 millimetres.

‘Ear inspo,’ Ms Luke captioned the post.

Nearly 600 tattoos, including on her chest, neck, stomach, arms, face, fingers, thighs, sternum, bottom and hands
Brazilian butt lift
Ms Luke had vowed to stop body modification work after a procedure went terribly wrong.
Ms Luke had blue ink injected into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40-minute procedure last November that left her blind for three weeks.
‘I can’t even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like [the tattoo artist] grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eye,’ Ms Luke told Barcroft TV.
‘That happened four times per eye, that was pretty brutal. Unfortunately, my artist went too deep into my eyeball.
‘If your eyeball procedure’s done correctly, you’re not supposed to go blind at all. I was blind for three weeks. That was pretty brutal.’
‘I don’t plan on getting any more body modifications that are extreme in that manner. So no more tongue splitting, no more eyeball tattooing.’
Ms Luke developed a fascination for tattoos at age 16 before she dabbled with extreme body modifications.
Her ideal image is to be ‘fully covered’ in tattoos.
Ms Luke has spent more than $70,000 on cosmetic procedures including a tongue split, breast augmentation, and pointed ear implants
Ms Luke (pictured in early 2017 before undergoing her transformation) said she thought she looked ‘plain’ and ‘boring’
Before her transformation, Ms Luke said she never liked the way she looked.
‘I see myself as very plain looking when looking at before and after photos, I absolutely hated the way I used to look. It wasn’t me. I was boring,’ she previously told Daily Mail Australia.
‘But I’ve evolved myself over the years into what I want to be and look like, but in saying that, I still have a long way to go.’
Ms Luke said she has ‘no regrets’ over her 10-year transformation.
‘I’m not worried what I’m going to look like when I’m older, I understand that everyone ages and I don’t think anyone will be looking too “pretty” at 70 years old,’ she said.
‘At the end of the day, it’s the only thing I can take to my grave with me.’
Since unveiling her new look, Ms Luke said she has been met with mixed responses.
‘I gained a lot of support and positive vibes from complete strangers – there was always the few nasty opinionated ones who try to make you feel inadequate, but I never let them get to me,’ she said.
‘I’m not harming anyone in the process, I’m doing what I want to do and if it makes me get up in the morning and be a happy person, then so be it.’

Tens of millions of people around the world have found their Garmin devices, including those used by runners, cyclists and pilots, down for a fifth day after being hacked by Russian group Evil Corps which is demanding a $10m ransom to restore their operation.
Garmin has been ordered to pay the ransom by the cybercriminal group headed by a 33-year-old Russian playboy hacker, Maksim Yakubets, who drives a customized $250,000 Lamborghini.
In December 2019, the FBI placed a $5 million bounty on Yakubets head for information leading to his capture. It is the largest reward being offered for an alleged criminal connected to cybercrime.
Yakubets’ latest target is Garmin, which has still offered no explanation for their outage, but security analysts said the reason is likely ransomware, a technique used by hackers to encrypt data and extort funds.
The company said on Twitter that its website and Garmin Connect fitness app had been offline since Thursday. It said the ‘flyGarmin’ site used for aviation databases was also down.
