  • The Russian Navy currently operates 28 missiles R-29RM that carry, together, 112 nuclear ogives. The Russians are modernizing missiles R-29RM and converting them it standard R-29RMU Sineva, that will serve of nucleus of the force of attack of the Strategical Fleet until the introduction of the new missiles Bulava, naval version of already cited Topol-M missile, and beyond, with forecast of will remain in operation up to 2030. The Sineva, as already affirmed, is closing the cited gap originated for the withdrawal of active service of the missiles heavy R-39. With capacity to carry up to ten VMRI with unitria power of 100 kt and to more than attack targets the 11,500 kilometers of distance, the inactive R-29RMU perfectly obtain to substitute the R-39. The precision of the ogives, even so the majority of cites it to the sources as next to 400 meters, some arrive the referiz it as inferior the 100 meters thanks to the possibility to guide the missile by means of system GLONASS. With such precision, the projectile can act in such a way in against-force missions as against-value. The Russians operate 64 Sineva missiles currently. However, it is little probable that these are operating with the maximum load capacity, that is of ten ogives.

    The program of the new Bulava missiles, with introduction in service planned for 2009, has suffered considerable delays, mainly had the successive imperfections in the program of tests. Initially it was planned to operacionalizar them on board the new submarines of the Borei classroom, of which the first unit must soon start the tests in the sea. However, according to some specialists, if the program of the Bulava to continue suffering to delays and the submarine from the classroom Borei, Yuri Dolgoruky, will be ready to be integrated to the squadron, this can temporarily be equipped with the Sineva missiles until the Bulava is ready.

  • The Brazilian territory encloses an area of 8,5 million kilometers approximately squared. Of these, 5,2 million kilometers approximately squared, that is, about 60% of the domestic territory, understand the Brazilian Amaznia, also call of Legal Amaznia. Making border with seven countries, what it more than represents a band of ten a thousand kilometers, and with an approach population of 17,5 million inhabitants, what it corresponds only 9% of the national population, it is a strategical region. The Amaznia, greater humid tropical forest of the planet, possesss incalculable mineral and vegetal wealth, fact that is complemented by this being, according to estimates of scientists, home of 60% of all the forms of life of the planet. The generation of electric energy by means of plant hydroelectric plants is the responsible one, as given of 2006 of the Ministry of Mines and Energy, for 75,7% of all energy consumed for the Country.

    The hidrogrfica basin of the River Amazon has a potential of generation hydroelectric plant esteem of 105.000 MW, of which less than 10% they are being explored. The hidrogrfica basin of the River Paran, the second greater of Brazil, has an esteem potential of 59.000 MW, of which approximately 70% already are being explored. This demonstrates plus one of the immense wealth of the region. Certainly the Amaznia is the greater of the Brazilian people well. The deforestation, according to data of the National Institute of Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE), reached the mark of 11.224 kilometers squared in the period of August of 2006 the August of 2007. This corresponds a superior area to the territory of Jamaica.

    Nor always the Brazilian society grants to the subject the necessary attention. The ambient devastao in the region has granted to the press and foreign powers pparently solid arguments to give to form the absurd hypotheses. That is strengthened for the idea of if approving in the Federal Chamber (therefore already it was approved in the Federal Senate) the Project of Law 6424, of 2005, that it not only authorizes a great increase in legal deforestation as well as releases the responsible ones for such deforestation to recoup the knocked down trees.
