Ministry of Industry and Trade temporarily simplifies the work of the drug labeling system

The Russian authorities decided to temporarily transfer the drug labeling system to a notification mode due to the increased demand for a number of antiviral drugs, said the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.

According to him, there are still problems associated with insufficient technical readiness of distributors and some pharmacy organizations to work with labeled drugs.

“Taking into account the peak of increased demand, we and colleagues from other departments decided to temporarily switch the drug labeling system to a notification mode in the pharmacy and distribution segments,” the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade quoted him as saying.

This will allow pharmacies to dispense drugs without waiting for a response from the labeling system, and Russians to avoid delays in purchasing drugs, Manturov explained.

Earlier, several representatives of large pharmacy chains told Vedomosti about the difficulties that had arisen with the sale of certain drugs. They argue that due to technical failures in the labeling system, the periods for dispensing drugs have increased significantly.

Now in Russia drugs, fur products, footwear, tobacco and tobacco products, photographic equipment, perfumes, tires and tires are subject to mandatory labeling. In addition, from the beginning of 2021, this will be extended to light industry goods: table and bed linen, knitted blouses, garments and accessories made of natural and composite leather, coats, jackets and raincoats from any materials.


Extinction Rebellion and Youth for Climate re-dressed Zara

Hay, flowers and a banner against the “Overexploitation of workers and destruction of ecosystems”. Here is the ephemeral window that was installed a few hours on Saturday in front of the Zara sign in Toulouse. The initiative came from the environmental movements Extinction Rebellion and Youth for Climate, which blocked the entrance to the store, owned by the fast fashion giant. “Fast fashion” because only five weeks elapse between the creation of a garment and its installation in the store.

“The fast fashion textile industry is one of the most polluting on the planet for both water and air”, denounces Extinction Rebellion. According to the UN, the fashion sector as a whole causes 10% of CO emissions2 in the world. On a sign hanging from the window of Zara, we can also read that jeans require 7,500 liters of water to be made. And that’s a low estimate.

Zara, signatory of the “fashion pact”

Driven by this green awareness driven by new citizen movements, some sixty brands signed the Fashion Pact on October 12, which commits them to reducing their carbon footprint, to using 100% renewable energies by 2030, to fight against deforestation or to use more recyclable materials. Inditex, the group that owns Zara, signed the pact. It indicates to Release “Have implemented measures at each stage of [son] activity, to protect biodiversity, reduce consumption of water, energy and other resources, avoid waste and combat climate change. ” This notably involves the use of sustainable cotton and recycled fibers.

But according to Zéphyr Isard, spokesperson for Youth for climate and for Exctinction Rebellion Toulouse, these commitments are not enough. There are still efforts to be made for the cultivation of cotton or the transport of clothing. More broadly, he advocates an overall slowdown in production: “As long as companies continue to strive for growth, their work will be incompatible with environmental values.” One of the ecological and inclusive alternatives to fast fashion results in particular from the reuse of second-hand clothes. On Saturday, in Toulouse, activists offered free clothing already used and gave passers-by the list of thrift stores and Emmaus-type depots in the city.

Uyghur workers

Apart from the exploitation of resources, the militants also point out that of the workers. One in five cotton items of clothing come from a China-based Uyghur labor camp, they recall, according to recent estimates. In February, the Australian Institute for Political Strategy (Aspi) revealed that nearly 80,000 Uyghurs had been transferred between 2017 and 2019 to Chinese factories and that“At least 83 international brands have resorted to this forced labor at one point or another in their production chain”. Among the textile brands mentioned: Adidas, Lacoste, Gap, Nike, Puma, Uniqlo, H&M and Zara. On this question, the Inditex group indicates to Release “Do not tolerate forced labor or any form of exploitation», and “Have put in place strategies to ensure that there are no links in the production chain ”.

In December, on the sidelines of COP25 in Madrid, Extinction Rebellion activists had already demonstrated in front of a Zara in the city, even occupying the inside of the windows. In February, other members of the organization had targeted London Fashion Week. And last week in Paris, several “rebels” blocked a C&A clothing store.

RBC: the authorities have ruled out the re-introduction of the holiday regime in the country

Federal authorities do not plan to introduce a non-working day regime due to the coronavirus pandemic, RBC said, citing two federal officials. The non-working day regime was in effect from March 30 to April 3, 2020, then it was extended until May 11.

“This is out of the question,” said one of the newspaper’s interlocutors. The official explained that Russian President Vladimir Putin listens to the opinion of experts who “unanimously” say that there is no need to introduce a lockdown. ” Also, Putin is not planning a new appeal to the Russians due to the situation with the incidence. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov confirmed to the publication the absence of such plans.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that the situation with the coronavirus pandemic in Russia is manageable and does not require the introduction of new restrictions. The head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova also said that now there is no need to impose strict restrictions due to the growth of COVID-19 cases.

According to the operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus, on October 19, 15,982 cases of infection were detected in Russia per day. This is the maximum value since the beginning of the pandemic. In total, more than 1.4 million cases of COVID-19 have been registered in Russia, of which more than 1 million patients have recovered. More than 24,000 cases have died.


Style criticism: “INRI” on T-shirts – Panorama

A bit surprising that the entrepreneur L. did not immediately have the term “God” protected as an EU-wide trademark. At least “Jesus” or “Savior” must have been possible. Then he could have used it to print on his T-shirts, which were cheaply produced in Bangladesh. But it is initially “INRI”, which the real estate speculator from Aichach had reserved for leather goods, textiles, cosmetics and beverages in terms of merchandise. So he just told various media.

L. recently stated that the inscription on the cross, with which the Romans mocked the “King of the Jews” (Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum, also: INRI), has not been protected by trademark law for 2000 years. But it got there immediately. And now L. has T-shirts with the INRI logo plus a bearded Jesus on them produced. As well as the last words of the Savior: “It is done”.

In order not to come across as Pharisaic, the Swabian investor emphasizes that he once waved the incense barrel himself as an altar boy and that he is otherwise quite Catholic. He also asked two clergymen for advice beforehand, who were downright enthusiastic about his idea. And of course he’ll donate part of his income to charity, set up a foundation or something.

Will L. soon have the sign of the cross protected in order to make money with it? The kippah or the kaaba? Whether he is renting the table of the cross to a fashion company? So maybe “Gucci” instead of “INRI”? And then big: the golden calf! The Pope will soon call Aichach and ask if he could not have four more plastic crucifixes pressed in Bangladesh for his souvenir shop on St. Peter’s Square. Otherwise he’ll have to deal with Mr. L.’s lawyers. They must have protected Justice long ago in order to earn money from it. Spirit is cool.

PARIS (dpa-AFX) – The French luxury goods group LVMH (LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton) (Moët Hennessy – Louis Vuitton) recorded bright spots in the business with fashion and leather as well as with wine and spirits in the third quarter. Although the company still recorded significant sales declines, it did better than analysts expected. This gave the stock a boost on Friday. And papers from other luxury goods manufacturers were also able to post price gains in the slipstream of LVMH.

LVMH had confirmed its assessment of a strong summer for luxury items with the results, wrote analyst Luca Solca von Bernstein in a study. The sales of the luxury goods group in the third quarter exceeded the consensus estimate by 6 percent, according to RBC analyst Piral Dadhania. Credit Suisse expert Guillaume Gauvillé was also impressed. The fashion and leather division exceeded expectations, he said. The expert therefore increased his 2020 forecasts for growth from its own resources and the Group’s operating result.

The corona pandemic was still very clear in the figures presented for the first nine months. LVMH’s total sales slipped 21 percent to 30.3 billion euros. Even with the recent upswing, the decline in fashion and leather was still 12 percent. The French want to decide on an interim dividend by the end of the month. As is customary in France, LVMH only presents profit figures for the half-year and for the full financial year./nas/men/jha/mis

Chanel, proof by 5

► The striped sweater

In the mid-1910s, Gabrielle Chanel (born 1883) caused a sensation by creating a garment whose simplicity and fluidity resolutely turned its back on the rigid lines that hamper the silhouette of women. Made in an ivory silk jersey with languid pleats, its sailor top, borrowed from the sea workers’ locker room, immediately defines the Chanel allure.

Displayed like a treasure in the half-light of the first room of the exhibition, this piece seems to link day to night, elegance to relaxation, modernity to timelessness. “Chanel will remain faithful to this conception, says Véronique Belloir, curator of the retrospective at the Palais Galliera. Neither the vogue for historicism nor that of exoticism will have a hold on it. “

►Le N° 5

Immortalized by Marilyn Monroe, whose nights he accompanied, the perfume designed by Ernest Beaux for Coco Chanel in 1921 is unique in more than one way. The refined graphics of its bottle, so far removed from the scalloped undulations prized of the Roaring Twenties, the equally sober white and black cardboard box, the eighty essences (jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, spices, etc.) that make up the unique and indefinable juice. But also the name. Why N ° 5? Quite simply because Chanel chose the fifth fragrance presented by Ernest Beaux and launched it on May 5, the fifth month of the year. “This number 5 will bring him luck”, affirmed, visionary, the creator.

►The little black dress

Tightened, Coco Chanel’s chromatic palette honors black and white. In the 1920s, could not black, the color of mourning for so many war widows, according to this provocateur, also celebrate elegance and feminine chic? If she may not have invented it, Chanel launches in the magazine Vogue from October 1926 her “little black dress” with an extremely simple look, without unnecessary adornments, the skirt of which stops just below the knee. The king of couturiers of the time, Paul Poiret, declared that his rival inaugurated “The poverty of luxury”.

►The tailor

Chanel, proof by 5

At the end of a long eclipse after the Second World War, Coco Chanel returned to the front of the stage in 1953 and reopened her house on rue Cambon. A year later, another sparkle with her tweed suit: at 71, she was once again inspired by masculine clothing, practical, flexible and comfortable.

Success was not immediate and the tailor first found its followers across the Atlantic (Jackie Kennedy wears a pink Chanel on the day of her husband’s assassination) before establishing itself in France as a classic for the traditional bourgeoisie. . Chanel comes in colors, day or evening fabrics, skirt shapes, straight or slightly flared …


The only concession to exuberance and opulence, jewelry, precious or fancy, signed Chanel from the 1920s, offer a “Sassy counterpoint” (Véronique Belloir) to the purity of her clothes, which they enhance like deliberately showy trophies. The exception was in 1932, a line made entirely of diamonds and platinum, resembling the sublime Milky Way.

After the war, in the wake of her tailor, the seamstress developed accessories that were also instantly recognizable: a camellia plucked from the dandies’ buttonholes that, in 1923, the designer pinned to the muslin of her blouses, a quilted bag and shoes. two-tone, beige to extend the line of the leg and black to slim the foot …
