Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Undergoes Surgery For Bladder Stone

Sao Paulo, Brazil:

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro underwent an operation to remove a bladder stone Friday, the government said, the latest in a series of health issues for the far-right leader.

Bolsonaro, 65, "underwent endoscopic cystolithotripsy surgery," a minimally invasive procedure under general anesthesia that involves using a laser to break up and remove a bladder stone, the communications ministry said in a statement.

"The procedure was carried out without complications, and the bladder stone was completely removed. The patient is in stable condition, without fever or pain," it said.

Bolsonaro had previously announced he would undergo the surgery, telling supporters the bladder stone was "bigger than a bean."

"I felt a little pain, so I went for a checkup. But I'm fine. It's an age thing," he said last month.

Bolsonaro has undergone a series of surgeries in recent years, including four stemming from an attack in which he was stabbed in the abdomen during his 2018 presidential campaign.


The attack, carried out by a suspected radical leftist, came just over a month before Bolsonaro was elected president.

He also had a case of Covid-19 in July, putting him in quarantine for nearly three weeks.

That episode did not deter him in his regular attacks on stay-at-home measures to contain the new coronavirus, which he says are needlessly damaging the economy.

Решение приняли на заседании, которое прошло 26 ноября, говорится в опубликованном сегодня отчете. «Одобрить проект федерального закона «О внесении изменений в части первую и вторую Налогового кодекса РФ» и внести его в Государственную думу в установленном порядке», — постановило правительство. Минфин ранее предлагал обязать граждан декларировать операции с криптовалютой. Ведомство подготовило поправки в Уголовный и Уголовно-процессуальный кодексы, предусматривающие миллионные штрафы и тюремные сроки за систематическое нарушение отчетности перед налоговой при проведении операций с цифровой валютой на крупные суммы. Поправки предусматривают: до трех лет тюрьмы владельцам цифровых валют, неотчитавшимся за операции в эквиваленте от 45 млн рублей и выше;обязанность физических лиц и организаций отчитываться в ФНС о получении цифровой валюты, сделках с ней и остатках в криптокошельке, если за календарный год сумма операций превышает эквивалент 600 000 рублей. Эксперты назвали меры «неадекватными» и предупредили, что под них попадет большая часть трейдеров из РФ.
