Although many at the time were skeptical of the announced changes, it seems that the “thing” has moved from the deadlock.Denis Barić, the first man of the Island Parliament, does not hide his satisfaction that the Draft went to the urgent parliamentary procedure so quickly ” According to the proposed draft law, navigation schedules will no longer be able to be passed without the consent of local self-government units, and I think these changes will most please island businessmen who will be able to transport goods to other islands at a discounted price, which I believe will be much more profitable than so far, says Barić and adds that he hopes that the islanders will use the new / old rights that were revoked less than two years ago this summer.”Finally, there is little reason and we sincerely hope that the Amendments to the Law on Transport in Liner and Occasional Coastal Maritime Transport will be passed unanimously, ie that it will be adopted by Parliament. If we want life on the islands that is the least that can be done and only logically, it is absurd that today I am writing about it at all as big news. Certainly how this should only be the beginning of the revitalization and revitalization of our islands because if we do not want our islands to be deserted, and we do not want to, then concrete steps must happen immediately.Islands and residents do not have the time nor do they deserve to wait for years for positive change.Source: Zadarski list

By Katya GolubkocaThe Russian government has ordered 30 billion roubles ($560 million) in cuts in spending on the 2018 World Cup finals, Russian news agencies reported on Monday.No reason was given for the decision, but Russia has been hit by an economic downturn worsened by Western economic sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine and a fall in the global price of oil.The news agencies, quoting a decree issued by the government, said total spending on the tournament would now be 631.5 billion roubles ($11.8 billion).They later quoted Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko as saying the building and renovation of stadiums would not be affected and that savings would mostly be over work on hotels.President Vladimir Putin says he is confident Russia will host the finals despite investigations into alleged corruption at soccer’s governing body FIFA and probes of how Russia and Qatar were awarded the 2018 and 2020 finals.
