Russian "shuttle traders," for whom the Polish authorities changed the border-crossing procedure, starting from the new year, held on Thursday an unsanctioned protest action at the border check point in the city of Bagrationovsk, Kaliningrad Region. Several dozens Russians took part in it. They learned about the changes when they already reached the border, and for that reason they had to cancel their trips to Poland. The emotional rebellion of the "shuttle traders", brought about by their irritation over the poorly coordinated actions of Russian and Polish frontier guards, developed into the spontaneous picketing of the highway. They blocked the way to Russia for Polish citizens, who had passed the border-crossing and customs control.

Tension on the Russian-Polish border is connected with a new procedure for crossing the border by Russian tourists. Prior to 1998, it was enough for those, who wished to go to Poland, to buy at one of the tourist firms on the territory of the Kaliningrad Region a so-called voucher, which was rather cheap. Starting from January 1, another voucher will be needed, which confirms the payment for a hotel and for tourist services made to Polish tourist firms, Tass learned at the press centre of the Kaliningrad frontier guard force. According to the information of the press centre, 313,000 Russian citizens cross the Russian-Polish border every three months. 89,000 of them go to Poland as tourists. At the same time, only 3 per cent of them are real tourists. The rest are "shuttle traders." The blocking of a comparatively free entrance to Poland for the purpose of buying goods means for the traders the undermining of the way to make their living, formed during the past several years. This is the reason for their spontaneous protest actions outside the border check point, which are on the verge of violating the law.

Along with the unsanctioned picketing, a consultative meeting of representatives of the frontier guard services of the two countries, the consulate-general of Poland and the office of the Russian Foreign Ministry in the Kaliningrad Region was held in Bagrationovsk. They agreed that Russian tourists would receive one-day visas at the consulate-general of Poland in the Kaliningrad Region, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Artur Kuznetsov told journalists after the end of the meeting. He said that the Russian Foreign Ministry office had not been informed either in due time about the new border-crossing procedure. The talks on the settlement of the border problem will be continued.

The situation on the Russian-Polish border was urgently discussed on Thursday night by Kaliningrad Governor Leonid Gorbenko and heads of the local police, security and army forces. Gorbenko made an urgent telephone call to the Polish ambassador in Russia.

Гипотеза показывает: Как ядра атомов закручивают гравитоны. Как гравитация атомов, суммируясь, рождает гравитацию тел. Как ядро атома, вращаясь с огромной скоростью, осуществляет сильное взаимодействие. Как, вращающийся вокруг ядра электрон, не излучает электромагнитную волну. Как атомы соединяются в молекулы. Как в ядрах атомов протоны и нейтроны с колоссальной быстротой превращаются друг в друга. Как разность гравитационных потенциалов рождает привилегированную систему отсчёта. Как абстрактное инерционное движение превращается в выдумку мыслителей. Как электрон и позитрон превращается друг в друга. Как "приморозка" свободных электронов к атомам является причиной сверхпроводимости. Как формулы Кулона и Ньютона о взаимодействии зарядов и о взаимодействии гравитирующих тел имеют одинаковую математическую форму.
