Rustem Rinatovich Adagamov (born November 8, 1961 (1961-11-08), Kazan) is a Russian blogger, known by his nickname in LiveJournal as drugoi.


Born in Kazan. The media wrote that "he is Tatar for a quarter, and Russian for three." Rustem's father worked for about thirty years in the energy industry.

my Kazan grandfather was a Tatar, but his wife (my grandmother) was Russian, from Vologda and they had children (my father and his three sisters are Russians, they are not taught the language). mother is generally Russian, from Kaluga. I like that I have a quarter of Tatar blood in me, but I can’t rank myself as a Tatar, it would be strange.

He grew up in Moscow. In 1980-1985 he studied at the Moscow Historical and Archival Institute (now RGGU) at the faculty of scientific and technical information, scientific and technical archives, standardization and patent science. Subsequently, Adagamov worked as an artist in publishing houses and advertising agencies in Moscow, designed books. For some time he served as the chief artist of the publishing house of the Soros Foundation, and then, as a visiting specialist, he worked on design and graphic design. In 1994-1996, Adagamov raised his qualifications at the Polygraphic Institute (now it is Moscow State Press University).

In 1996, he participated in a competition for graphic artists in Brno, where he was noticed by top managers of the Norwegian representative office of the advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi en. At their suggestion, he left for Tromsø, Norway, where he lived until the mid-2000s and worked in an advertising agency. Adagamov got a job in their office in Norway, and later took up the position of creative director of the Norwegian branch of the agency. Over time, Adagamov, who, in his own words, "has always been a Scandinavophile," opened his own advertising agency in Norway. For the first five years, he lived in the “Norwegian Arctic” in the city of Tromsø, then moved to the south of the country. During his stay in Norway, Adagamov received Norwegian citizenship, while retaining Russian.

Back in the late 1990s, Adagamov began to actively participate in Internet conferences, in particular, in the project “Evening Internet” created by Anton Nosik. In 2000, together with Alexander Borzov, he created the NTV audience forum. After the closure of the old NTV, it transferred and registered a site under the new name www.kommunalka.org.

In early 2012, he became one of the founders of the Voter League. In October 2012, he was elected to the Opposition Coordinating Council.

On January 15, 2013, he left the Public Council under the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation after a statement by Minister Vladimir Medinsky that Adagamov did not attend the meeting and about his own desire to remove the blogger from the council. In turn, Adagamov said that for several months the secretariat of the Ministry of Culture had never reported on the upcoming events, and that he himself did not receive an invitation to them. Adagamov announced his resignation from the council and described his work as "another Potemkin village, deception and fiction". The members of the cinema commission commission of the Public Council under the Ministry of Culture Nikolay Burlyaev and Daniil Dondurey confirmed Adagamov’s words that the commission under the ministry had not gathered a year after its founding and they did not receive invitations to these events. The Ministry of Culture declined to comment.

At the end of February 2013, Rustem Adagamov announced that he had moved to live in Prague, where he would "engage in photojournalism, write a blog." Adagamov’s decision was criticized by some opposition members.

Since the fall of 2013, he has been working with Sportbox.ru as a sports photojournalist.

Drugoi blog

March 22, 2002 Adagamov at the suggestion of Anton Nosik created his blog in LJ, where he appears under the nickname drugoi. He entitled his blog as "an illustrated magazine about everything else." Thanks to the blog in LiveJournal, his name became widely known.

He began to post translations of interesting articles from Norwegian newspapers on his blog, as well as his own short stories about his life in Norway.

Adagamov places on his LiveJournal reportage photographs of foreign photo agencies such as Reuters and France Press, providing them with copyright signatures and comments.

At least since 2008, his journal (according to statistics from LiveJournal) in terms of the number of subscribers has always been in first place. Rustem Adagamov’s blog has nearly 80,000 regular readers (friends).

According to Adagamov himself, there are several times more readers.

According to the director of Kommersant Publishing House, Demyan Kudryavtsev, Rustem Adagamov’s blog is in real competition with electronic versions of leading Russian newspapers such as Vedomosti, Izvestia or Kommersant Adagamov himself did not deny in his interview that his magazine had actually taken over the function MEDIA .

In early January 2013, an advertising contract with Adagamov refused to renew Megafon, and two days later, VTB Bank. Companies posted their banners on his blog on the LiveJournal platform. In February 2013, Rustem Adagamov began to advertise the services of the Svyaznoy Travel company on his blog; under the contract, the blogger will publish information about agency-sponsored travels.

On May 29, 2016, due to entries on his blog where the author called Crimea and Donbass “Russian-style territories,” Adagamov was attacked by representatives of the C14 organization in Kiev, where he arrived to speak to readers. The attacking hooligans poured Adagamov kefir and inflicted several kicks to him, while shouting: “This is from the Maidan”. The blogger fled.

Inclusion of a post in the registry of banned sites

On January 11, 2013, Roskomnadzor, on the basis of the law “On protecting children from information harmful to their health and development,” demanded that LiveJournal remove Adagamov’s post as violating the law regarding suicide propaganda. The blogger’s message told about the events in India, where the activist of the “For Tibetan Independence” movement tried to burn himself in protest against the arrival of the PRC chairman.

The head of LiveJournal Russia, Ilya Dronov, fulfilled the requirement by blocking the material. In response, many bloggers posted Adagamov's entry on their blogs. Thus, they decided to find out whether their Roskomnadzor would also be blacklisted.

Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor M. Ksenzov said that Roskomnadzor will not consider complaints about blogs that contain a copy of Adagamov’s post.

Childhood and youth

The biography of Rustem Rinatovich begins in 1961. Born on November 8 in Kazan. The blogger reported on his nationality that he had a quarter of blood from the Tatars and three quarters from the Russians. Soon after the birth of the boy, the family moved to Moscow.

The childhood of Rustem Adagamov

By ethnicity, Rustem considers himself Russian, although Tatar blood flows in it for a quarter. According to the blogger, his grandfather was a Tatar, although his grandmother and mother are Russian. However, he does not regret at all about such a mixture of nationalities, on the contrary, he even likes it.

Rustem Adagamov’s father was associated with energy for more than thirty years by profession.

"The second shock. Devoted army of Vlasov" - 2011


In 1996, the competitive work of a man, which was presented in the Czech Republic of Brno, attracted the attention of Saatchi & Saatchi employees. The designer was invited to move to Norway and collaborate with the agency. After working for several years in the company, Adagamov took up his own advertising business. Together with the work, the blogger received Norwegian citizenship.

In parallel with advertising, he created websites, fascinating photo essays, and maintained a blog. The originality of Rustem's photographs made it possible to shoot in the Kremlin Palace, where he was invited by the press service, and later, since 2008, the blogger has accompanied Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on official trips.

In the winter of 2012, Adagamov was one of the founders of the Voter League, and in the autumn of that year he received an invitation to become a member of the opposition coordination council. In February 2013, a public figure left Russia, moved to live in Prague. For several years, the blogger has been involved in various projects.

In the spring of 2002, Rustem Rinatovich created a blog on LiveJournal by choosing nickname drugoi. The posts that he places on the pages include translations of articles from Norwegian newspapers, as well as short sketches of the artist about everyday life in Norway. A blog in a short time gains popularity with the audience. Hot topics, vibrant photos, interesting content make Adagamov one of the leading bloggers in Russia.

The magazine of a public figure is funded by advertising, which is placed on its pages Megafon and VTB. However, since 2013, companies have terminated cooperation contracts. The man finds a new sponsor in the person of the “Svyaznoy Travel” organization. According to the agreement, Adagamov publishes travel posts paid by the agency in LiveJournal.

In 2016, having arrived in Kiev to meet with blog readers, Rustem Rinatovich was attacked by hooligans. The reason for the attack was journal entries in which the publicist characterized Crimea and the Donbass as Russian “in spirit” of the territory.

Coverage of President Dmitry Medvedev

September 3, 2009 Adagamov was first admitted to the event with the participation of President Dmitry Medvedev in the Kremlin. He photographed on an amateur camera and prepared an illustrated story for his LiveJournal blog about the meeting of the presidents of India and Russia, noting:

I wandered around the room and watched how the journalists worked.

Thanks to the help of the presidential press service, Adagamov was given the opportunity to photograph the banquet in the Grand Kremlin Palace, where no one else took pictures of him and the personal photographer of the head of state.

September 23, 2009 Adagamov was first taken on a trip with the president to Kazan. He accompanied D.A. Medvedev at all events, traveled in his personal motorcade and took pictures for the blog.

It is worth noting that earlier Adagamov in his blog criticized the work of presidential personal photographers and claimed that they “are not interested in taking the head of state.”

In November 2009, Adagamov accompanied President Dmitry Medvedev on his working trip to the Russia-EU summit in Stockholm. On November 18, 2009, together with Medvedev, he attended a football match at a stadium in Slovenia, about which he prepared a detailed report.


Some journalists, in particular representatives of the Interfax agency, negatively assess the activities of the blogger.

In 2009, journalist Anna Kachkaeva in the Radio Liberty program outlined a new conflict in the communication era: bloggers and journalists, in the center of which was Rustem Adagamov. In the summer, RusHydro invited Adagamov as a blogger to prepare an exclusive report from the accident at the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station and simultaneously deprived the journalist of the Interfax news agency of accreditation and access to the station. The fact of replacing a professional journalist with a blogger caused outrage in the journalistic community.

The Interfax agency in its editorial commented on the blogger’s activities at the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station two days after Adagamov wrote on his blog that the information of Interfax was inaccurate and his correspondent did not understand what was being said:

His story is a great occasion to think - is it worth it to unconditionally trust online diaries? The most popular blogger Runet first reproduces terrible rumors about the station, and then - takes beautiful photos about the progress of restoration work. Bloggers and commentators in diaries love scolding the media so much, but are they the better? Journalists are responsible for their actions before the law, the editors and the audience. What about bloggers? Only in front of my conscience. Or something else.

The journalist and publisher Sergey Parkhomenko spoke about the invitation of Adagamov to the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric station and to the Kremlin:

in my opinion, he was invited there and here, not at all as a blogger, but as a journalist with such a strange media outlet, consisting, it seems, of his only signature. This is generally very strange (...) All the press services in the world, with rare fantastic exceptions, are primarily concerned with varnishing reality in one form or another, as they understand it. They create a favorable image of their object.

A family

He was married to Tatyana Delsal born in 1961, who worked as a marketing director at VIP-System. non-authoritative source? The marriage lasted 20 years, the couple divorced in July 2010. The ex-wife lives in Kristiansand in the province of West Agder in southern Norway.

Rustem has a daughter and a son who currently reside in Norway.

Adagamov lives with a woman named Ekaterina. Spouses registered in Moscow.


On December 27, 2012, Adagamov's ex-wife Tatyana Delsal in his blog accused him of committing sexual acts for several years in a row with his 12-year-old stepdaughter until she came of age, which allegedly happened 15 years ago in Norway. After publishing a video on Delsal on blogs on this topic on December 29, Adagamov called him “nonsense” on Twitter, but said he could not sue his own person.

On January 11, 2013, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation began checking on the statement of Delsalle after her interview with the newspaper Izvestia and the television company Russia Today.

The massive spread of accusations against Adagamov in social networks and the media was assessed by such representatives of the Russian opposition as the FEP and the Constitutional Court of the opposition, as an information campaign directed by representatives of the Russian authorities to discredit Rustem Adagamov.

After the Izvestia newspaper reported that Delsalle passed evidence of his guilt to Russian investigators, and Adagamov’s victim told the Norwegian police in Lillesanne how and when the crime was committed against her, the head of the Lillesanna police station said in an interview with RIA Novosti, that no allegations of rape have been received by the police and no official investigation is underway.

According to TASS, citing a source in law enforcement agencies, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case against Adagamov on suspicion of rape and seduction of a 12-year-old girl under articles 131 and 132 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

In March 2013, the blogger left Russia and, as of 2015, was no longer returning to the country.

In January 2015, after Adagamov again failed to appear for questioning by the investigating authorities, he was put on the federal wanted list.

Montenegro: a new art project by Marat Gelman

Each of Marat's friends who comes to Montenegro should look at his Artist House in Kotor. This is part of the mandatory country visit program. Our company at the festival "Age of Happiness", about which I wrote, did not avoid a visit there.

01. You now know that the Bay of Kotor (or the Bay of Kotor) is the most beautiful place on the Adriatic. Okay, let's say, one of the most beautiful.
Show full ...

02. The town of Kotor itself is located at the farthest end of a long bay.

03. The place is absolutely unique, of fantastic beauty and especially sweet to me that resembles the Norwegian fjords. I remind you that the old city and the fortress are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. People in these places began to settle back in the heyday of the Roman Empire.

04. It is a pity that recent years have left in Kotor not the best memories of themselves. This, for example, was built by some Irish and went bankrupt. It is not possible to pick up an unfinished hotel from the city; it will have to be tried for five years.

05. The typical architecture of the socialist 70s also did not pass by the ancient city. Previously, there was a shipping company. Recently, the developers wanted to build a hotel on this place, but it was too late - Gelman had already entered the city of Montenegro and set up such vigorous art work there that the developers simply gave the building to him. Forever and ever. And the hotel will be built nearby. Now here, on the shores of the luxurious Kotor Bay, workshops are equipped where almost thirty artists - Montenegrin and Russian - work.

06. A dull soviet building with the energy and talents of Gelman turns into a real center of modern art. The Montenegrin government has provided scholarships to visiting artists - they are paid 1100 euros a month for living and 300 for materials. Fellows work for two months, and then, if desired, can stay and get a workshop for free use. More than 50 people have already passed through this art factory, except for those who come to work at their own expense.

07. It was necessary to see how the eyes of Glory Polunin caught fire when he discovered this site near the House of Artists. Her size is exactly the circus ring. And in Kotor five thousand tourists go ashore every day from cruise ships and stay here for several hours. Immediately there was an idea to make representations here.

08. Art objects here are not only inside, but also outside. This is all living, talking.

09. As I understand it, Marat can talk about this place for hours. They listened carefully to him. It’s really interesting to learn first hand how a person who has recently arrived in the country is already doing a serious job here, which can be seen, touched,

10. Here on the walls are the works of Andrei Lublinsky (author of Perm "red men").

11. This is also Lublin.

12. Perm businessman Anatoly Winter, who in 2000 bought the bankrupt Krasnokamsk wooden toy factory and began to modernize it, restore production, and introduce new technologies. He worked for several years, relations with the local authorities did not work out. Now Winter in Kotor, having moved the whole family there, begins a new life.

13. In the workshop of Dmitry Tsvetkov - one of the most famous Russian contemporary artists who started in the 90s. Now his work in the Tretyakov Gallery and the Russian Museum.

16. Seva Novgorodtsev with his wife Olga in a workshop near Tsvetkov.

17. Remarkable artists from Perm Olga Subbotina and her husband Mikhail Pavlyukevich. In Kotor, they did a series of work with embroidering a contour over the fabric.

20. Victor Freidenberg gives Slava Polunin his "houses".

23. Ivan Ivy and his paintings that run away.

24. Natalia Zaloznaya and her man with a mirror who is listening to himself.

25. Montenegrin artist Dragolyub Stankovich

26. Marina Skepner. She is yolka

Here are the results of the work of the Marat Gelman project in Montenegro since March, when he arrived in the country:

more than 40 art exhibitions in Kotor, Budva and Podgorica (four of them in museums), five festivals, twenty lectures in the framework of “Russian Seasons”, the Artist’s House with 36 workshops, a draft law on benefits for film producers and a project of the Woman’s Museum, the opening of an art galleries and the beginning of the sale of works, the launch of a ceramic workshop and a workshop for woodworking (in the launch of a jewelry workshop and clothes), a book of Montenegrin writers in Russian was published. An album with the work of artists in Montenegro will be released with the participation of Dukley Gardens.

To these results, I would also add two wonderful sons, Yegor and Peter, whom Marat and Nastya gave birth to. This is probably the most important thing.

27. We stood on the roof of the House of Artists, Marat talked about plans for the future, and I listened and thought how sorry it was for such people to leave Russia - smart, talented, initiative. And those who tried to squeeze him out of the country, who smashed his exhibitions, threatened, humiliated and ridiculed celebrate the victory. But this is not their victory, of course. This is a common misfortune. Which is not known when we will cope.

I'm on social networks:

"Age of happiness" in Montenegro

Illyria, Dalmatia, Montenegro. Or Montenegro. And you can Dukla. Or Zeta. All these are the names of the tiny territory of the former Roman province of Prevalis, which in the VI century began to settle the Slavs from Central and Southern Europe.
Show all ... Now it is three hundred kilometers of the Adriatic coast, seventy kilometers of beaches with clear water, mountains covered with ancient forests, rivers and lakes, small towns on whose streets you can still hear, it seems, the sound of wheeled carts and the slender soldier's step of Roman cohorts. All this is the country of Montenegro, whose population is equal to the Russian Irkutsk or Ulyanovsk.

I have never been to the Balkans and it was interesting to see what it is. The driver who met me at the airport of the Croatian Dubrovnik (I flew through Frankfurt) spoke Russian fairly well (like many in Montenegro) and immediately complained about how good it was before in united Yugoslavia. We drove along a mountain road, which was very similar to the Crimean one, and talked about life. It was raining heavily and only the silhouettes of cypresses were visible behind the glass of the car against a rapidly darkening sky. Then it was amazing - two border points between Croatia (in the EU since 2013) and Montenegro. First Croatian, then, after a few kilometers, Montenegrin. I have already forgotten what border control is in Europe, but here it still exists.

Why did I go to Montenegro? And then, the well-known to you Vladimir Yegorovich Yakovlev came up with a fun festival with music, dancing and socializing for those who are well over 50. Volodya has long been engaged in people who, according to him, “have learned to live better after 50”. And here, with the help of Marat Gelman, for whom Montenegro became a new art project, and those who invest in a small Balkan republic, it turned out to gather such people in the Montenegrin city of Budva and arrange a holiday for them. So they called me there as a guest. I can’t say, however, that the years spent "over 50" were good for me. Rather, the opposite. But four days of them, spent at the festival "Age of Happiness" in Montenegro, were definitely very good.

01. I will remind you right away where Montenegro is located. From there, you can easily reach all the Balkan states, Italy, Greece.

02. And this is the town of Budva, where the festival was held. People have been living in this place since the 5th century BC. - it's hard to imagine. The civilization of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome left its mark here. For four hundred years, the city was part of the Republic of Venice and until the 19th century, residents spoke one of the dialects of the Italian language. Now almost a million tourists come here every year. Despite the fact that only ten thousand people live in Budva.

03. In the small old town, which is surrounded by a powerful fortress wall, narrow streets with souvenir shops and cafes.

04. Inside the fortress wall are several churches. The oldest is the Church of St. Mary (Santa Maria in Punta), built by Benedictine monks in 840 (!).

05. This is the Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity (1804 g), and the bell tower in the background is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, which was founded in this place in the 7th century.

06. Marina is big, well closed to the sea. That evening, the largest yacht in the roadstead had a home port of Taganrog.

07. In 1974, Vysotsky starred in the joint Soviet-Yugoslav film "The Only Road" about the partisan struggle during World War II. Vladimir Semenovich wrote several songs, one of which was included in the film. And the poem “Water filled with handfuls. ". The quote on the wall of the building in Budva is like the last stanza from this poem (I can not say).

08. When I arrived in Budva in the evening, I immediately landed from the ship to the ball - Megapolis was playing for the festival participants. I have not listened to Russian music for a long time, and I only remembered Oleg Nesterov’s group from the grotesque Karlmarkstadt in the mid-90s. And then he entered the hall and suddenly found himself in the magical world of music from their last year’s album “From the Life of the Planets”. He was talking about the films he had never made in the 60s and Oleg, before each next song, spoke in detail and very interestingly about the history of the film to which he wrote this music. Then, later, when we met, I found out what Oleg was a wonderful, intelligent, intelligent person. Now, when I write this, I have “Seven Unclean Couples” playing - the music that I now listen to constantly, it hooked me tightly. That evening was a great musical discovery for me.

. all life is over somewhere
and what lies ahead
don't believe and don't wait

09. I never thought that I would be here. Once upon a time, Serezha Polonsky told me what a magnificent skyscraper he would build for one and a half billion dollars on Cape Zavala in Budva and how he would bring Madonna here and give her a villa in the most beautiful place. Then it was called Mirax Astra Montenegro. Seryozha is a funny fellow and one could talk with him for hours about everything in the world, but the businessman from him turned out to be strange. When the 2008 crisis began, he simply took and abandoned his project. Just quit. That’s all. The Mirax company left this wonderful place and the people who invested in this place together with Polonsky had to save their money and the project that Montenegro really counted on. And saved. Now these luxury villas in the best place in Montenegro are called Dukley Gardens and everything is in order here.

10. I was accommodated in one of the Dukley Gardens villas (this is how it looks). Frankly speaking, I got lost there - it looked like a train station in terms of area. It’s great, of course, to live in such a house for several days, but you had to get used to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, so as not to get confused in them.

11. The villa is literally packed with electronics, sensors, household appliances. Everyone had to learn to cope with this.

12. And this was the view from the window. Strange as it may seem, the water in the sea was quite warm and the people swam with might and main.

13. Here we have such a nice company for several days of the festival. The local resident and our kind guide Marat Gelman, BG with his wife Ira, Slava Polunin with his wife Lena, Sergey Livnev, who invented the film ACCA, well, I did. Then Seva Novgorodtsev and his wife Olya still joined us.

14. In the mornings, we met at a restaurant, had breakfast, got into cars and Marat drove to show us Montenegro.

15. Glory to Polunin, Volodya Yakovlev and Naum Emilfarb, who, in fact, saved the development project of this place, turning it into what is now called Dukley Gardens. Naum has allocated considerable funds for the organization of the festival "Age of Happiness."

16. The first thing Marat took us, of course, to Kotor is a fabulous town on the shores of the bay of the same name, where Gelman now has a large art center, the artists invited by him work there.

17. The entire old city of Kotor is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Romans came here in the 3rd century BC, the city (like Budva) belonged to the Roman province of Dalmatia and passed to the Byzantines only after the fall of Rome after eight (!) Centuries. The Cathedral of St. Tryphon, on the balcony of which stands Boris Borisych, was built in 1166 and is a symbol of the old Kotor.

18. Such a cathedral inside. It was rebuilt several times, but retained the typical features of Romanesque architecture.

19. On the walls hang the results of archaeological finds in this place. Artifacts of some simply unbelievable time - III-V centuries AD, for example. Here on the wall is a large collection of Orthodox icons.

20. Polunin in one of the exhibition halls of Kotor. There was exhibited fine small plastic by local artists.

21. A street in Kotor.

22. In this shop, BG bought a hat, in which he then went all days, performed in it.

23. Up the mountain there is a fortress wall with a staircase and you can climb to the very top.

24. We went to lunch in another town in the Bay of Kotor - in Perast, which is only a few kilometers from Kotor. Only 400 people live in Perast, and he became famous when these lands belonged to the Venetian Republic. Another magical place on the Montenegrin coast.

25. Here is such a small miracle

26. Tiny islands are located in the bay near Perast - on one (St. George, on the left) is an abbey of the 12th century, the very Benedictine monks who built the monastery in Budva, and on the other (man-made) in 1452 two sailors found the icon of the Mother of God that healed one of them. Therefore, they built an island on a reef, called it Madonna dello Scarpello, and on the island a church. Boat trips to these islands are one way for local people to earn money from tourists.

27. In the already famous “Montenegrin alphabet” by Olga Florenskaya, Perast looks like this:

28. Lunch on the shore of the Bay of Kotor.

29. The food in Montenegro is very diverse, tasty, but not to say that it is cheap - they know their worth. The seafood here is just caught. After Prague, where there was only meat and sausages, I was terribly happy with the Montenegrin fish cuisine. Yes, and everyone liked it, in general. BG told his favorite stories about pirates (he is a great connoisseur of this topic) and dinner on the beach was a success.

30. And in the evening on the main square of Budva near the old fortress BG and its “Russian-Irish Quartet” a big concert was played for festival participants and residents of Budva. Boris Borisych is here in the hat that he bought in Kotor.

31. Two and a half hours of great music for a grateful audience. It was necessary to see the eyes of people as they listened to the maestro!

32. I haven’t been to BG concerts for a hundred years. He turns, of course, incredibly. A sedentary stall of people who are “well over 50” literally a few minutes later jumped up and began to dance.

33. This is an Israeli artist Sasha Galitsky sashagalitsky, you know him, of course.

35. Oleg Nesterov and Dasha.

36. Glory to Polunin and Lena Ushakova.

37. The four of them give out an excellent, powerful sound. Joe Joe Kelly on the drum as if also a bass guitar. Lyric accordion of the best of the best Alan Kelly. The magic flute of Brian Finnegan. Well, BG - the light comes from him when he is on stage.

38. Marat, BG and Seva Novgorodtsev after the concert. And I’m happy, because BG entrusted me to carry the guitar to our house in Dukley. Done safe and sound

39. The next day, we went with the guys from Dukley Gardens to the mountains. Climbed far and high. In such places, the BG meditates.

40. The truth here is amazingly beautiful.As if you were on Earth where there is no man yet. In Montenegro there are many mountain rivers and each of itself is something interesting.

41. The grasshoppers were there with half my palm. We looked at each other in disbelief.

42. Here you have a restaurant and boats for walking along the river.

43. Everywhere there are such small grenades, the size of a large rosehip.

44. Boris Borisych found the boat chain and I wrapped it in it.

45. Everyone was in a good mood and fool around a lot. BG does this with an impenetrable facial expression, like a Buddha.

46. ​​Glory and Lena are very good. The three of us drove in the same car and talked about a lot.

47. The good owners of Dukley Gardens gave us a boat trip.

48. I did not meet with Seva Novgorodtsev after London, when a few years ago he was on air of his broadcast on the BBC. She and Olga have now moved to Bulgaria, as you know, probably.

50. The whole river in this river flyer.

53. Marat and Sergey. Now I know everything about how ACCA turned out. I even recorded a video where Livnev tells what kind of work the script of the film was born. We were spinning around the Montenegrin serpentines, Sergey was driving, he told me, and I shot on camera. BG said that he loved Black Rose more, because there Solovyov gave him a turn around with music. And for me, ACCA is a very important marker on the road of my life. It was such a time.

54. Seva and Olga.

55. Ira, Glory and Misha (adopted son of Marat). Ira and I talked about the times of the rock club on Rubinstein. And she even remembered my stretched (and only) sweater, which I then wore. They were then older for me, and now somehow everything was aligned.

P.S. I want to say a big thank you to Volodya Yakovlev and Yulia, who came up with and organized such a cool meeting of good people. I hope not the last. Thanks to Marat, who is doing a project about Montenegro - this is very cool. Thanks to Naum and Igor for their hospitality. And thanks to Montenegro - this is a wonderful place to live. I would love to go back there. I will definitely be back.

Details on the operation of the Tesla electric car in Russia: answers to questions
Since the appearance of the brand, Tesla electric cars have not ceased to be the subject of wide discussion, including in Russia. Interest is growing along with a gradual increase in brand sales in our market. Moscow Tesla Club has been working with Tesla electric vehicles since they appeared in our country, so we decided to talk as much as possible about the use of Tesla in our country.
Show full ...

We tried to answer some of the questions in this video, and in more detail later on in the text, in a “question-answer” format.

How many Tesla already have on our roads?

Every year in Russia there are more and more Tesla electric vehicles. According to the official data of the Avtostat analytical agency, the dynamics of brand sales in Russia is growing at an excellent pace - 8 cars were sold in 2013, and in 2014 this number increased to 82. As of July 1, 2015, there were 122 on the roads of our country officially registered Tesla - and not all in Moscow or St. Petersburg. There are cars in Kemerovo, Barnaul, Khabarovsk and even in Anadyr - more on the Autostat infographic below:

Interestingly, according to the Moscow Tesla Club in Russia there are more Model S - about 250 copies. Perhaps the owners are not in a hurry to register them.

As you can see, every year more and more Tesla appears on the roads of Russia, and Moscow Tesla Club provides all the conditions for the comfort of current and future owners.

How to charge Tesla cars in Russia? After all, there are so few charging stations.

The power reserve of Tesla on one charge allows you to do without the use of public charging stations for everyday use in urban conditions. As the practical experience of the owners shows, it is much more convenient to use home stations, getting a fully charged electric car in a few night hours, when electricity tariffs are lower. With the installation of such a device in the parking lot, in the garage or in the office there will be no problems - Moscow Tesla Club has a range of charging stations to choose from, and installation services are also provided.

Tesla owners may need recharging at a public station for long trips. With regard to Russia, it is too early to speak about a developed infrastructure that allows solving this issue. Today, there are projects to organize a network of high-speed electric stations ChaDeMo. In addition, judging by the information on the official Tesla Motors website, in 2016 Supercharger stations will appear in Russia - one each in Moscow and St. Petersburg, 2 on the way between them, as well as on the M9 highway towards Latvia. Thus, in a year, a network of branded ultrafast charging stations will connect Russia with Europe, giving the happy Tesla owners in our country the opportunity to organize a comfortable trip using only Supercharger on intercity routes and highways. By the way, since 2014, the possibility of charging in the Supercharger network is a free option and is included in the basic package of all Model S and Model X.

Public street charging stations are needed for electric vehicles with less power than Tesla, which often lacks the average city dweller. This question remains open in Russia and the CIS. Nevertheless, new charges are constantly appearing in large cities, so far only in the European part of Russia. Progress is already noticeable, given both public and private initiatives, which means that very soon it will be possible to talk about a full-fledged infrastructure of charging stations for electric vehicles. By the way, a card with an up-to-date list of publicly available charges can be found, for example, here.

Since the vast majority of Tesla owners charge their electric cars at home or in the office, it’s worthwhile to understand in more detail how to do this correctly, how long it takes to charge and what equipment is needed. So, a standard charger (Mobile Connector) is supplied with each electric car, and you can additionally purchase the proprietary High Power Wall Connector - portable charging of increased power, which is hung on the wall of the garage. In both cases, the outlet must have a normal ground.

The European version of Tesla has the ability to charge from a three-phase current, therefore it charges faster than an American-specification machine. You can take advantage of this type of charging with the help of a three-phase red IEC 60309 outlet - this can be put in your garage, they are also often found, for example, in car washes, underground parking lots, hotels and other places where powerful electrical equipment is connected.

Information about the charging speed from the home network and the necessary equipment (the data presented are relevant when connecting a three-phase current):

In addition, there is the possibility of charging from a conventional 220V home outlet using the appropriate adapter on the Mobile Connector. In this case, the car does not charge quickly - 14 kilometers are added per hour. Both types of chargers are capable of operating at temperatures from -30 to +45 degrees Celsius, which does not give reason to doubt their effectiveness in Russian conditions.

The listing and specifications of all available Tesla charging options is a topic for a separate material, which our club plans to publish in the near future.

What is the real mileage on a single charge? Is it greatly reduced in winter? In general, does she go in the winter?

The actual mileage of the Tesla Model S with an 85-kilowatt battery in the warm season, with averaged urban use, is 350-400 km per full charge.

And in winter, Tesla goes, and how - you know, in which country in Europe regularly breaks records for Tesla sales? In cold Norway, where in winter the temperature can drop to -40 Celsius, which is quite comparable even with the most severe winters in Siberia.

More than 6 thousand Tesla Model S are now driving on the roads of Norway - it is very popular due to comfortable conditions of ownership: a network of free gas stations, the absence of customs duties on electric cars, free parking, and the right to drive on lanes allocated for public transport. Judging by the reviews of the owners, in winter the power reserve is reduced by about 20-30% - this means that in any case it will be enough for the average urban resident for every day.

In addition to the issue of mileage, in winter Tesla is simply much more convenient than gasoline or diesel cars - there is no difficulty in starting the engine in severe frost, there is no need to wait for heating. In Tesla, the interior (since the heater is completely electric) and the seats are heated very quickly, and in addition, you can set a comfortable temperature in the cabin using the mobile application, even before leaving the house. The temperature of the battery itself is constantly maintained by the on-board computer automatically at the optimum level. By the way, there is already operational experience with the Tesla Model S in conditions of Russian frost - for example, in Barnaul at -30 Celsius.

Tesla Maintenance Cost

It is clear that an electric car is cheaper for everyday use, because There is no main item of expenses - refueling expenses. But it’s one thing to just know about this fact, and quite another to look at the real numbers.

So, for the most effective illustration, let's try on the following situation from real life. Suppose we live in Moscow and use a car for daily commuting. One-way trip takes 15 km, respectively, the minimum daily mileage is 30 km. For simplicity, we will not consider traffic jams and additional trips. Thus, the weekly mileage will be 150 km.

Let's compare the Tesla Model S P85D (700 hp, 3.3 sec. Acceleration to 100 km / h, 7,300,000 rubles) with competitors. For example, we select a car that is comparable in dynamics and cost. Let it be the Audi RS6 Avant - worth from 6,000,000 rubles, with a capacity of 560 hp. and with acceleration to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds. (http://www.audi.ru/ru/brand/ru/models/a6/rs-6-avant/t ..). And to make it more interesting, we add to the comparison the objectively economical car available on the Russian market - let it be a diesel Skoda Octavia 2.0D with a robotic gearbox.

For all calculations, we will use the specifications declared by the manufacturers, as well as the cost of fuel and electricity tariffs in Moscow on November 3, 2015.

Is Tesla safe on our roads?

This question worries many potential Tesla owners in Russia. And this is correct, given the busy traffic situation on the roads of our country.

Naturally, for admission to public roads, the Tesla Model S passed all the necessary tests - EuroNCAP (Europe) and NHTSA (USA). Not just passed, but became one of the few vehicles that received a maximum overall rating of 5 stars by both methods in all types of crash tests!

One element that provides such a high level of security is the battery. And this fact is one of the concerns of potential Tesla owners - there is an opinion that it is not known how the battery will behave in case of mechanical damage. In addition, at the end of 2013, news about a car igniting as a result of a collision with an obstacle was widely spread on the Internet. Tesla Motors reacted as quickly as possible to the situation: it was found out that a hole 7 cm in diameter in the battery pack arose from a car hitting a large metal object, the impact force of which at the bottom is estimated at 25 tons. More than 5 minutes passed between the moment of impact and the fire, and the fire was facilitated by the fact that the firefighters extinguished four more holes in the protective metal shield of the battery pack and put out the fire, but did not reach the cab.

Already in November, a software update was released that increased the ride height of the electric car, and in the spring of 2014 changes were made to the design of the car: a special hollow aluminum beam, a titanium plate and a stamped aluminum shield are installed under the bottom. An aluminum beam either discards an object lying on the road, or, if it is a very solid and stable object, softens the blow and directs it up in front of the battery compartment to the area of ​​the front trunk, preventing serious damage and keeping the car controllable. A titanium plate protects vulnerable components from the front of the machine from damage, helping to neutralize debris lying on the road. The aluminum shield is installed in case the first two protection devices fail - it additionally absorbs and dissipates impact energy. Owners of already purchased Model Ss can upgrade their electric cars with advanced protection at service stations for free.

The set of active and passive safety systems in all Model S configurations includes 8 airbags, frontal and side-impact collision avoidance systems, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, driver and passenger seat position sensors, rollover sensors, automatic battery shutdown in case of an accident, etc.

What is autopilot? Does Tesla ride by herself?

Yes, it’s going. In the presence of markings and relevant conditions on the road.

More recently, Tesla Motors released a new firmware for its supercars, the main feature of which was an almost full-fledged autopilot for driving on the highway (by the way, we already tested it on Moscow roads and saw for ourselves how this device can increase the safety of movement on public roads: - firstly, the autopilot lacks the human factor during such maneuvers as rebuilding - the car cannot “fail to notice” another car in the blind zone, and secondly, before our eyes Tesla herself is as correct as possible to avoid collisions with careless road users, which was captured on our video.

Autopilot is an extremely useful feature for traveling on the highway and in traffic jams. From experience - it significantly reduces driver fatigue and increases safety during the trip.

How to serve Tesla in Russia? After all, we do not have an official service

One of the priority activities of the Moscow Tesla Club is to provide comfortable service, within the framework of which a service has been operating for a year and a half, where non-warranty repairs, tuning and maintenance of Tesla cars are performed. If necessary, engineers from the European representative office of Tesla Motors come to our service. And for large and warranty repairs, the process of promptly sending electric vehicles to Germany for service has been established.

We can say that the Tesla service concept is a maximum of comfort and a minimum of headache for the owner. Tesla lacks most parts that operate under high load and require regular maintenance in vehicles with internal combustion engines. The fuel system, timing, clutch, pipes and filters, candles, rollers and other spare parts for Tesla owners are nothing more than remnants of the past. In fact, Tesla does not have units operating in extreme conditions, even a consumable such as brake pads has a much longer resource than in traditional cars - due to regenerative braking.

The manufacturer not only updates the firmware of his electric vehicles remotely, but also conducts basic diagnostics and the solution of minor problems.

As for the battery, Tesla Motors gives it a guarantee of 8 years with no mileage limitation. For any problems, the battery changes for free. In addition, the manufacturer saves detailed statistics on the use of each battery, information on charge-discharge, charge currents, any malfunctions and can predict the behavior of batteries for many years to come. Moscow Tesla Club provides comprehensive assistance in warranty replacement of the battery.

Does Tesla connect to the Internet in Russia? Are all features available? How to manage all the options?

Of course, any Tesla is easy to connect to the Internet. For Russian owners, there are two options: you can install a SIM card in the service of our club (we have the experience of calling a specialist from Germany to replace SIM cards), or it’s easier to do this by putting any wifi modem in the salon and connecting through it.

And this is our detailed overview of managing the basic functions and options of the machine:

Who rides Tesla in Russia?

A variety of people, and among them - personalities to some extent public. Here are some examples.

German Gref, President of Sberbank of Russia: “These machines do not pollute nature. They are cheap to operate and easy to use. ”

Mikhail Podorozhansky, Avtorevyu editor-in-chief: “I want to understand whether it is possible to manage in Moscow only with an electric car. So far I have succeeded. ”

Anton Belov, director of the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture: “From what I liked especially during the operation, it’s a feeling not of a defective car, but, on the contrary, of a car of the future: that it was thrown off a UFO and it fell into your hands” .

Dmitry Grishin, CEO of Mail.Ru Group: “Tesla for cars is the iPhone for smartphones.”

An interview with several Tesla owners in Russia is in the video at the beginning of this article.

There is another interesting fact. We often buy Tesla cars as a gift. After all, we solve a specific problem: what to give to a person who has everything? Tesla is the perfect gift in this case. And prestigious, and interesting, and causing delight later - every day of use.

How to get a Tesla car? What is the receiving process? How long to wait for a car?

To order and buy Tesla in Russia and the CIS countries is simple. The whole process consists of three steps:

1. You contact the Moscow Tesla Club (http://moscowteslaclub.ru/) with a desire to buy an electric car, and we will help you choose the right modification and tell you in detail about all the nuances.

2. We take care of all the work on ordering the car, delivery and registration.

3. You will receive your Tesla in 3-4 weeks if you choose a car from those in the European warehouse. You can order the assembly "for yourself" - in this case, you have to wait

Personal life

Adagamov lived in marriage with his wife Tatyana Delsal for 20 years. He has a daughter Alina and a son Gregory. The spouses divorced in July 2010. At the end of 2012, Tatyana on her blog accused her ex-husband of child molestation.

According to Delsalle, the blogger has been abusing a 12-year-old stepdaughter for several years in a row. A history spanning more than 15 years instantly received wide publicity.

Rustem himself left a comment on Twitter, calling the incident "delirium." In what was happening, many saw Adagamov being discredited by representatives of the Russian government.

In January 2013, verification began on the application of the ex-wife of the blogger, which was conducted by the IC of the Russian Federation. At the same time, it was reported in Norway that the local police had not received a statement about the violent actions, and therefore no investigation had been opened.

In March 2013, a journalist who lived in this period with his common-law wife Ekaterina Makarova left Russia. In 2015, the man was put on the federal wanted list.

Activities on the Internet Rustem Adagamov, LJ

Already in the 1990s, Adagamov began active work on the Internet. For the first time, he became a participant in an online conference called “Evening Internet,” sponsored by Anton Nosik. And in 2000, together with Alexander Borzov, he designed and created a forum for NTV viewers. Later, after the closure of the old channel, he created his own website with the name "kommunalka".

At the suggestion of Nosik in May 2001, Adagamov first registered on LiveJournal under the nickname rustam, but practically did not update him. And only a year later, on March 2, 2002, a user was registered in LiveJournal under the nickname drugoi. It was under this nickname that Adagamov became known to the public. When asked about the reasons for choosing such a pseudonym, Adagamov first replied that it was easy to write in Latin letters, and later began to explain it a little differently. It turns out that Rustem often felt superfluous in various companies, not like everyone else, so he was “different”.

In 2003, Adagamov began publishing stories about his life in Norway, as well as small articles from local Norwegian newspapers.

A little later, the blogger began to post various photos on his page, while adding his comments or expressing his opinion.

Already in 2008, Rustem Adagamov’s blog traditionally ranks first in terms of the number of subscribers (more than 80,000 regular readers). According to Rustem Rinatovich himself, readers are actually several times more than the number of subscribers. Then he became the chief editor of the SOUP multimedia blogging service. Some well-known and authoritative editions of the weekly issue of electronic newspapers have seriously thought about what kind of competition they have on the blog of the “other”. These were the leading Russian newspapers Vedomosti, Kommersant, Izvestia, etc. Rustem Rinatovich himself in several interviews repeatedly expressed the opinion that his blog had already begun to play the role of the media. He also defined the status of his blog as “news photo blog.” This definition became really accurate, because the page consisted of a variety of interesting pictures with comments no less interesting to them. It was really exciting and informative for a reader of any age.

The fact that Rustem Rinatovich used pictures from Western news sources has given rise to criticism for many readers. For example, the equally active blogger Maxim Kononenko openly expressed his dissatisfaction, saying that Rustem Adagamov “showed everyone an example of how to become popular without creating anything, but copying.” To which Adagamov noted these accusations as stupid, because he simply selects something necessary from the heap of unnecessary. This is the same job as an editor, only on a blog.

The photo blog of the “other” was repeatedly accused of hidden advertising, which Adagamov himself categorically denied. He claims to be writing on his blog about what interests him. If he is interested in advertising, he will write about it.
