Undoubtedly some very interesting developments here. In the immediate aftermath, @bellingcat & its lead #Russia investigator @christogrozev began damage control regarding the announcement. Mr. Grozev claimed that he was not involved in the operation (as RU sources asserted) but
simply had a front-row seat as a film-maker (for a documentary). He also denied that the Ukrainian operation was a failure or a Russian coup. He portrays it as a mutual attempt at playing the other side, in which the UA came out on top and RU FSB blundered & revealed important
(His thread ), calling it a "blunder for the FSB, disclosing unintentionally identities of dozens of counter intel officers, their methods of operation, and their undercover assets.".

🇺🇦 “Ukraine is the only nation to have a Nazi formation in its Armed Forces.” (The Nation, 2019)

Before the pesky US-NATO proxy war narratives took hold of the air waves, and billions washed through the country, the West felt at duty to tell the truth about #Ukraine. Image
“Post-Maidan #Ukraine is the world’s only nation to have a neo-Nazi formation in its armed forces. The #Azov Battalion was initially formed out of the neo-Nazi gang Patriot of Ukraine.” Image
“In the fall of 2014, #Azov—which is accused of human-rights abuses, including torture, by Human Rights Watch and the United Nations—was incorporated into Ukraine’s National Guard.”

These human rights atrocities have not stopped. #Denazification #Ukraine Image

Ukrainians murdering a cyclist in #Bucha. Satellite imagery (Maxar) from March 10th shows the building on the corner was destroyed, meaning the drone footage was filmed before that date which is consistent with the #AzovBattalion drone video caption stating the 3rd.

Rather odd for Ukrainian forces to be raising the flag in #Bucha if Russian forces were in control eh?

It appears #Bellingcat is wrong,

Bucha, March 3, 2022, raising the Ukrainian flag (video)…
Numerous reports put the encounter with Russian forces some 6-7km away near Vorzel from the column of equipment located near Vodoprovidna and Yablunska St. So there needs to be better evidence to refute that the equipment there was Ukrainian.

Ukrainian #Jewish #mma fighter tortured in #Ukraine.
Matched tattoos on his knee to confirm it is Maxim Ryndovskiy. #OSINT #Ryndovskiy
Open source info = 2 versions:
1/ He was Pro-Chechen visiting DPR regularly
2/ Far right Ukrainians (Nazi supporters)
No solid intel yet.
#Facebook ID:100026417802478, so far, no Pro-Russian or pro-Chechen views have been found which would corroborate Version 1. His FB profile has friends in Ukraine and Russia, mostly female, no Chechens, no open source Pro-Russian propaganda. #OSINT #Ukraine #Ryndovskiy
His #Twitch account, he can be seen playing war games…
His videos:
*Note the Star of David on his logo, the only thing found so far in regards to Pro-Russian or Pro-Chechen views is nothing, just a love for #judaism and his roots.

🧵Update from Professor Mychailo Wynnyckyj, Kyiv Mohila Academia.
Kyiv – afternoon March 7

1. Today “peace talks” between 🇷🇺 and 🇺🇦delegations have started in the Bilovezhska Pushcha resort in Belarus – the same place the agreement to dismember the USSR was signed Dec 1991.
2. I’m not sure how the symbolism of site selection should be interpreted, but if the rumors are true, the Russians have arrived at the talks having completely misunderstood #Ukraine’s current reality.
3. Journalist and #Bellingcat contributor @christogrozev (2019 Euro Press Prize winner) shares Russians have proposed the following as prerequisites of a ceasefire: 1) #Zelensky remains pro forma President, but pro-Russian Opposition Party leader Yuriy Boiko is appointed PM;

Is it possible that #Bellingcat Grozev is spinning up a whole #Navalny Conspiracy Theory here because he didn't understand the problem with timestamps?… Image
According to him, a Russian LifeNews article was only online for one hour and then deleted.
This article is timed 8:58 (presumably Moscow time) and was saved on at 8:08 UTC. That a) proves that the timestamp is not UTC and would be 11:08 Moscow time. ImageImage
Here are several versions of the deleted article… and of the republished version… with a 13:22 timestamp.

Real Journalists, who were trying to stop #Bellincat from spreading fakes, were attacked by Bellingcat and its criminal Russian cronies in order to stop their work.
Using a source of information (if true) does not mean that journalists worked "under the control" of that source.
Bellligcat's criminals from the Black Mirror are not honest Wikileaks, they are criminals, who are hacking people's mail, phone records, etc and blackmailing the victims to pay to stop publishing them. They are selling stolen private information to enrich themselves.
I would not be surprised that they lied that they had the hacked correspondence between "General Andrei Ilchenko", "assistant to the head of the GRU Kostyukov", and "GRU Colonel Sergei Chabanov"

1/ Bellingcat published a new "research".
this time Mi6 &CIA gave it the task to connect the producers of Russia's COVID19 vaccine with the non-existent program of chemical weapons of mass destructions in Russia. The goals was to sanction the sales of Russian COVID19 vaccine
2/ & accuse Russia in producing weapons of mass destruction to justify NATO military invasion of Russia.
3/For that Bellingcat pushed the narrative, that developing antidots to the organophosphates poisoning means the extensive organophosphates production!
In this case #PortonDown should be sanctioned up to its collective ears.

1/ Ukrainian media is whitewashing SBU & #Bellingcat's fakes/blunders:
"As for the inaccuracies in the SBU records, ... they are not critical and only say that the Ukrainian special service was in a hurry to disclose them, which is why its employees made some mistakes."
#MH17 ImageImage
2/ Minor errors?
One "minor "error", A. #Shariy noticed, was that SBU published on its Youtube channel the so called "incriminating" wiretaps of 2 conversations of a person, they accused in shooting #MH17, as occurring at exactly the same time.
This is not a minor error
3/ Timing of these conversations was the most important factor for the SBU wiretaps validity. It should had been checked & rechecked to make them look incriminating DPR militia &Russia.
Marking 2 differ. conversations of the same person with exactly same time- screams "fake"

"Former rebel commander Igor Bezler to sue Bellingcat". I received this information from a source that has been proven reliable in the past. Proceedings will first start at a Russian court, later in a UK and/or Dutch court too. #MH17

Bezler claims Bellingcat falsely links him to the Malaysian Boeing tragedy, a 298-fold murder case.…
Almost five years ago I wrote 'MH17 - Lying for Justice'. Part of the article is about the Bezler taps to be highly likely manipulated and forged by Ukraine's Secret Service SBU.…

1. Last night I heard that @bellingcat’s founder, #EliotHiggings, will publish his book on #Bellingcat, calling his creature “an intelligence agency for the people”, I told him that was precisely the concept used by Julian #Assange to introduce #WikiLeaks from the very beginning
2.every journalist worth his salt can easily google and find Julian #Assange’s quote on #WikiLeaks as “an intelligence agency of the people”:it’s such a well-known quote that it’s mentioned in the opening paragraph of the #Assange superseding indictment
3. .@bellingcat’s founder,#EliotHiggings, replied I was defending an “alleged rapist” and blocked me. Is this integrity?

1. ieri sera ho scoperto che il fondatore di @bellingcat, #EliotHiggings pubblicherà un libro su Bellingcat in cui definisce la sua creatura “un’agenzia di intelligence per la gente comune”. gli ho fatto notare che aveva copiato questa definizione da Julian #Assange
2. Chiunque sappia fare ricerca su Google può scoprire che Julian #Assange ha definito #WikiLeaks “un’agenzia di intelligence della gente comune” fin dall’inizio. Ci sono tanti articoli e addirittura è la prima affermazione di Julian #Assange citata nell’atto di incriminazione
3. Invece di scusarsi pubblicamente e ammettere il problema, il fondatore di @bellingcat,#EliotHiggings,mi ha risposto che difendevo un *presunto stupratore* e mi ha bloccato su Twitter. È questa onesta’ intellettuale e credibilità giornalistica di #Bellingcat?

Tonight #Bellingcat documentary ' Truth in a post-truth world' was aired on Dutch TV.
Bellingcat operation mocks the work of many independent civil journalist who uncovered truth about the fake war on terror and NATO false Flags.
They support the official line of NATO propaganda.
The documentary supposes Bellingcat to be a Civil journalist, but Bellingcat has been proven to be a part of Nato's Atlantic Counsel.
He receives funding from Atlantic Counsel and Dutch lotteries.…
Documentary starts with an investigation into the location of the fake beheading of James Foley.

Western media use Nato's Bellingcat as source to spread disinfo.
At the same time real civil journalist like #JamesCorbett do a great job spreading truth.

Bill Majcher: Cozy with the Chinese Government and corrupt business leaders, and happy to help them defraud innocent Chinese people out of their life savings. Taking everything he learned as a money laundering cop in Canada to help autocrats and scammers. What a Canadian hero!
Thanks to a tip from a concerned citizen, there is info suggesting Majcher was involved in a massive fraud scheme. #OSINT #Bellingcat #offshoreleaks
Now, thanks to @icijorg and the #PanamaPapers, we bring you Majcher's involvement with GNET Group PLC, which @MajcherBill was a director of, and defrauded a lot of working people out of their money through a Ponzi/Pyramid/fraud scheme. Keep reading...#CORRUPTION #offshoreleaks

1. #Skripal
None of the photos Bellingcat produced were the photos of Chepiga.
All 3 - are the photocopies from the documents that were needed to apply for a 5 year foreign passport and they we all photos of Boshirov. But the plot is much more sophisticated than we imagined.
2. These documents Boshirov brought to one of "we will get you a foreign passport in a few days" private firms - to replace Boshirov's (close to the expiration date) old foreign passport.
3. 30-40 sets copies of people's documents (those who applied for a foreign passport through that firm) were stolen by a criminal in 2016. That's why the passports Bellingcat is forging have the same series and consecutive numbers- they were stolen at the same time & place.
