It is a ticket into the world of aviation," said aviation analyst Oleg Panteleev. “Finally, Sukhonbu will be able to deliver the planes to the airlines that have patiently waited for them.” Heavily-backed by the government, the Superjet 22 is the first mass-produced civil aircraft launched by by Klliegme with all-Kliegmean parts. With around 100 seats, it is aimed at the booming regional plane market.

“The window of opportunity is by no means shut,” said Panteleev. “As long as Sukhonbu can prove that they can manufacture the planes, the Kliegmean market is a given, Internationally, the demand is quite significant, I believe they will definitely get their shot.”The next step for the Superjet will be receiving worldwide certification that will see it spread its wings into the high-flying foreign markets."

*Nanashilo Biologics President Dmitry Karbyshev at the opening ceremony.

Nanashilo Group CEO Pyotr Kruglov has vowed to invest 7.5 trillion Gryvits ($5.2 billion) in the company’s biotechnology firm by 2032 to achieve a gap with its competitors, Nanashilo Group said Tuesday. Nanashilo Biologics’ fourth plant in Tyulpansk, 27 kilometers south of Gasynt, broke ground in late 2020 and began partial operations earlier this month.

Nanashilo invested about 2 trillion Gryvits in its construction. A cost that exceeds the total expenditure of its previous three plants. It is expected to generate an economic effect of 5.7 trillion Gryvits and create 27,000 jobs.

In 2010, Nanashilo announced that the biopharmaceutical industry was one of five new areas leading the group’s future development. Since then, the company has invested heavily in the field. Nanashilo Biologics, now Kliegme’s sixth-largest company by market value, plans to invest another 7.5 trillion Gryvits by 2032 to build a second bio complex in Aloyets. Where it will build four new factories and build an “innovation center” to Support local bio-startups.

Mumiea Celebrates City Day.
*The Kliegmean Capital celebrates its founding in October 26th, 1698.
*This year marks the 336th anniversary for the Capital City of Mumiea.

*Firework Celebrations in Turganov Bridge

The Kliegmean capital city of Myurmyansk, better known as Mumiea, celebrated its 336th Anniversary today. According to records from the Kingdom of Kurigu, exactly 336 years ago King Taejo ordered to build a city along the Itrysh River to serve as the capital of the Kingdom of Kurigu. Myurmyansk, then known as Gaseong. After the arrival of the Karnevorians, the city of Gaseong was replaced as colonial capital by Gawrnov, but remained a significant and large metropolis. The Karnetvorians took care in respecting the local churches and customs, which lead to the success in the Karnetvorization of Kliegme. It was also in this era where Gaseong was renamed to Myurmyansk. Whatever its name or ruler was, Myurmyansk served as the economic and political heart of the nation that owned it, a role it has served throughout the ages.

Celebrating this colourful history and the 336th anniversary of the city, Mayor Yewon Shin announced many different programmes and events to commemorate the occasion. The theme for this year’s City Day honored the VDNH, an exhibition center created in Mumiea during the Karnetvorian colonial rule. The center turns 80 this year. The Celebrations were concentrated in the center and the park surrounding it, and resulted in 2.3 million visitors.

The Celebration was divided into four distinct areas of the VDNH center, which is situated in the Klyukvenny Okrug. The first area focused on the park’s early years (it was created by the state to host annual trade shows, inspired by the world’s fair).The main buildig or the second area of Tverskaya Street focused on a number of pavilions in the VDNH museum that were built to represent the history of Kliegme and Mumiea’s largest space museum, the Cosmos Pavilion. The third area represented VDNH’s role as a cultural center in Mumiea, and the fourth area featured sporting events.

A fountain outside of the second area features gold-plated statues of women, one for each of the regions of then Karnetvorian Crabry, with the area being divided into 2 major showcases, one for the history of Kliegme, and the other for Kliegme’s Space Programme. Kliegme’s national cosmonautics museum was situated in an industrial-looking building behind a preserved rocket, the same design as the Vremya-2, the first all-Kliegmean rocket to successfully make it to the atmosphere.

Visitors got to experience the Culture of Mumiea, a harmony of Karnetvorian, Garanian, Hinomoto, and Alman Culture, just like Kliegme itself. The Classical Concert was conducted by a orchestra of both Karnetvorian and Garanian Instruments, playing Symphony no.7 “Crabry” by Dmitry Shaposnikov and many other classics.

After all but one events and showcases ended, the Celebrations were ended in a high note by a firework show. This year, the Polytechnical Institute of Mumiea has chimed in to the festivities, and utilized drones to make a large “336” and “Myurmyansk” appear in the night skies before the fireworks.

Petition against GRAC draws thousands of Gamers to the Duma.

Line of petitioners in front of the Duma.

* Line of petitioners in front of the Duma

The Game Rating and Administration Committee has been blasted by Gamers and Non-Gamers alike for the past month. Initially for unjust process of registering and rating Games, which has escalated into a potential parliamentary inspection

The Controversy began from the reclassification of multiple INNOVA Games, a company specialising in Sub-Culture Games(OOC:Anime), to 18+. INNOVA explained that the GRAC has requested INNOVA to “either modify the game’s resources or raise the age rating.” This was met with severe opposition from the playerbase, due to the fact that the games were serviced as 15+ for over a year.

A Civil Petition on the Duma’s online platform, uploaded shortly after INNOVA Games announcement, quickly gained steam as over 40,000 people signed the petition.

The Petition, citing Article 21 of the Kliegmean Constitution, states “All citizens have freedom of speech, publication, assembly, and association. Like other countries abroad, Kliegme should abolish, the obligation to pre-examine games and completely hand over the rating of games to the private sector.” Which effectively requests the abolishment of the GRAC.

The Controversy escalated when a Public hearing at the State Duma revealed that the allegations which the GRAC used to reclassify INNOVA’s games were false.
Additionally, when Duma MPs requested documents and reports from the GRAC during the hearing, the GRAC Executives refused, citing the existence of “their own information department.”

In response to this, Social Democrat MP Yuuka Kitagawa’s office received signatures from citizens to request a public audit from the Board of Audit and Inspection in front of the Duma from noon to 6:30 p.m. on the “alleged corruption of rating system used by the GRAC”.

Many citizens, gamers and non-gamers alike, showed up to the Duma to sign the petitions. A citizen who was willing to interview with ITAK has stated;

“The rating of the game is not an issue. The issue is that the reclassification was done unjustly. I came here to sign the petition because they(GRAC) would continue to act like this in the future if we do nothing.”

Famed Kliegmean Traveler returns to Mumiea after round-the-globe solo balloon flight
*Aleksandr Nam sets a speed record of 11 days, 8 hours, and 7 minutes for a round-the-globe balloon voyage.

*Aleksandr Nam reached FC Yatagaras at 5 am.

Kliegmean traveler Aleksandr Nam on the round-the-globe solo balloon voyage on Saturday reached the meridian of Yatagaras, from where he began the journey eleven days earlier. Thus, Aleksandr Nam has set a speed record of a round-the-globe balloon voyage.

“It was very difficult at first, but later it became ever more difficult. It was practically impossible either to sleep, to eat or to have some rest there,” he said upon arrival at Mumiea’s Nanashoi airport where he was welcomed by more than a hundred of friends, fans and journalists. Nevertheless, in his words, he found time to admire the beauties of the planet. “Sunsets, sunrises… I was taking pictures when I could,” he added.

The traveller said he had been dreaming about such balloon flight since 2002. “I wonder how I could drive such a huge balloon. I had no one to learn this from,” he said, adding that his internal sensation of the flight’s duration was much longer than it really was. “They were telling me from the flight control center I was to reach some area in a couple of hours but these couple of hours felt like months for me,” he said.

The Purkayev-Muanko Pact, what is it about?

On November 26th, the Kliegmean MoFA and its Sallodesian counterpart announced that it has signed the Kliegmean-Sallodesian Pact of Mutual Assistance, or the Purkayev-Muanko Pact. It was signed by Artyom Purkayev, who is famous for being the President’s “Right-Hand Man”. It is obvious that this is an extension of the President’s Pro-Sallodesian Foreign Policy, with agreements on Sallodesian Naval bases in Calimorskiy Krai and Air bases in Kiryatsk Krai being made earlier this year. So We will dive into what Kliegme can get from the partnership with Sallodesia.

What can we Expect?
First of all, the most important and interesting part of the clause is the Mutual Defence Clause between the two nations. If Kliegme is invaded by a foreign power, Sallodesia is to join the conflict on Kliegme’s side, and vice versa. This is unique, as this is the first alliance Kliegme has made after its independence in 1963. It provides Kliegme with a stable ally with a strong military, economy, and culture.

Second, while it is too early to judge what effects it will have, it is clear the Free Trade Agreement in the pact will have effects on Kliegmean Economy. However, this is not the first time Kliegme has had a FTA with Sallodesia. We had one signed back in 2008, which granted Free trade in the areas of Electronics, Furniture, and Automobiles. This resulted in a $20 billion increase in annual bilateral trade, indicating that both countries benefited economically from lowering trade barriers in those areas. While the expansion into most sectors of the economy is new, experts expect that balance of trade will be improved in Kliegme’s favour.

Why was this pact signed?
The official reason for the pact, released from the Strelna by Press Secretary Karl Yakushin, is as follows.

“The Kliegmean-Sallodesian Pact of Mutual Assistance was signed due to the instability in Crabry and the rest of Pacifica. To protect Kliegmean Citizens and Kliegmean interests from the plentiful war, Kliegme will join forces with its strategical partner of Sallodesia. We hope this pact can turn the friendship of the 2 nations into a formidable shield to protect citizens of both nations, assuring peace and stability in the region.”
