Deaths in road accidents by countries of the world

According to the World Bank (2019), in Russia, an average of 12 people per 100 thousand inhabitants of the country die in road accidents per year. This is significantly higher than in most European countries, but even slightly below the US level (there — 12.7 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants)

The safest are the roads of Monaco, San Marino, Antigua and Barbuda and Micronesia — there are no fatalities at all. Well, given the size of these countries (and the fact that the last two are island countries and there are not very many cars in general), the result is not surprising

If we talk about larger countries, then the situation is best in the Scandinavian countries: in Iceland and Norway, 2 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants (the same in Switzerland), in Sweden — 3. In general, in Europe (and also in Japan and Australia) everything is pretty good: within 5 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants of the country

And the Dominican Republic is leading in mortality in road accidents: 65 deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants! The leaders are also Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and African countries

Russia and France have agreed to set up a working group to resolve a dispute over a Russian champagne labeling law. This was announced on Twitter by the French Minister of Agriculture Julien Denormandy.

The problems arose after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law according to which only domestic producers can use the description «champagne» on the back of the bottle. It prohibits the use of the term «champagne» in relation to sparkling wines produced outside of Russia. Due to the incident, 95 percent of trading houses stopped shipping. The Champagne Wine Committee called the changes unacceptable, recalling that the term champagne itself is associated with a historical region in France.
