Thread on today's #Russia explosion (this is becoming a habit):
In November 2017, Russia test fired the Burevestnik (SSC-X-9 Skyfall) nuclear-powered cruise missile from it's test location at Pankovo.
Comparison images show the site from the 20th May 2019 appear to be "abandoned". The environmental shelter appears to be gone on the rails. Image courtesy of @ArmsControlWonk shows that this was still present in June 2018.
Today at the Nyonoksa Site on the White Sea an explosion has killed at least 2 people and seriously injured many more. (6 was the last I saw reported). Hazmat team was involved in the evacuation of the wounded and a a small spike in radiation was reportedly detected.

#MoscowElectionCrisis #MoscowProtest Second Saturday in a row, unsanctioned protests in Moscow gather tens of thousands. 1,400 arrested last Sat. Opposition leaders are in jail. Today, one of the last leaders still free, is detained by police. RT please. #RussiaWillBeFree
Videos of people being detained in Moscow, about an hour ago.
#MoscowElectionsCrisis #MoscowProtest Watching live streaming from Moscow: The protest is unsanctioned so people are just "going for a walk" so there are not posters or flags; a massive crowd walking in their own town on a sunny day and thousands of policemen with batons.

#Russia- The Bastion Of Democracy😉 Interesting to observe the tone difference between this one and the State Media outlets such as RT. - - - “Activists: 1370 arrests at rally in… via @CRYPTO
For some of the domestic news like this on #Russia I scan the news from the West. For the ones on #USA abuses I tune into Russia media. For the general #MiddleEast I scan both camps’ outlets. For #Turkey, currently, there exists “None.” Every single side: filled W/spins & Lies😉

#Russia: Over 600 people arrested in Moscow's brutal clampdown on pro-democracy #protests today. Russians are risking life & limb for the right to fair elections, to end the ban on opposition candidates for city council. Sheer numbers show how scared the Mayor is of people power.
🗳✊#Russia #Protests: Riot police crackdown on pro-#democracy protesters in #Moscow today. Russians are protesting opposition candidates being booted from ballots. They don’t want taxation w/o representation. Sounds familiar. Video via @novaya_gazeta
#Russia #Moscow #protests: Riot police out in full force–with dogs–beating protesters on the ground. This couple asked for an ambulance for his broken ribs & a concussion. Cops refused, hauled him off to paddywagon, claiming “nobody beat you.” @mediazzzona

I've wanted to write this [THREAD] for a long time.
After mentioning it to @mountainherder and @pptsapper , I can't back down. This is the story a #woman, a #soldier, a #hero.
I would like to take the time to tell you about the life of an unlikely and forgotten hero.
A mixed race, #Muslim woman who took on the most dangerous job of #WW2 to defend a certain idea of freedom. Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan.
But before I tell you about her, I need to tell you about her father because I do think that his life had a part in the courageous choices that his daughter would make.

What we see in #Ukraine today is that people don't want to believe what they see with their own eyes, and what they hear directly from #Zelensky. The mix of people's hopefulness and Zelensky's #populism is blinding them to reality.
There is clear evidence that #Russia-connected #Yanukovych era power brokers have influence in #Zelensky's power vertical. Yet people pretend either that this isn't happening, or that it is not relevant, and will not impact Zelensky's presidency.
#Zelensky's inaugural speech echoed several RU propaganda narratives:
-#Kyiv is "responsible for continuation of war
-Kyiv "neglected RU speakers"
-Kyiv "abandoned people in occupied UA"
-"#Ukrainian is divisive factor in UA"
-"post-Maidan govt was the biggest problem in UA"

Thread on the ongoing efforts to start joint Russian-Turkish patrols in Idlib's buffer/desecration zone:
1- Russian and Turkish troops have recently announced their plans to start joint patrols to secure greater #Idlib, the last rebel stronghold in northwest #Syria.
2- The agreement was first announced in #Moscow on April 9 during a visit by #Turkey's President Erdogan. The deal was then discussed with the rest of the parties (namely Iran, regime and rebels) during the 12th round of #Astana Process peace talks which took place recently.
3-The joint patrols were presented, along with other measures, to reduce violations in the Idlib and ensure stability in the region. The patrols are supposed to be limited to the buffer zone (i.e. not the whole region) &stretch from northern Idlib city to southern #Aleppo

Burden of Proof: a practical primer. I'm getting hecka tired of Trumpsters looking to #exonerate #Trump because the #MuellerReport didn't indict him of #collusion, #conspiracy, or #campaignfinanceviolations. This isn't a binary choice, there are levels, and Trump IS NOT at 0.
Some Evidence: The lowest level, a single piece of evidence that collusion or conspiracy occurred, though it can be explained away by other means but points the undisclosed meeting with Russian officials for example.
Reasonable Indications: Considering how the motivations and circumstances line up with the presented evidence though each could be explained away by other facts. Trump's long standing interest in a #TrumpTower in #Moscow and whispers of the existence of #Russian #Compromat.

Gut wrenching.

This young girl was killed today in #Assad regime shelling of Khan Sheikhoun, #Idlib. Her father could only hold her feet as she was carried away.

#Idlib might as well be Mars for 99.9% of the world these days.

The world is a cruel place. #Syria
Very important data from @ACLEDINFO, detailing the "disproportionate" scale of pro-#Assad violations of the demilitarized/de-escalation zone in #Syria's #Idlib/NW.

Moreover, regime shelling in Feb 2019 was x4 the previous monthly average.
@ACLEDINFO In a meeting with opposition fighters, #Turkey ordered #NLF factions to retaliate to #Assad regime shelling in #Idlib.

#Ankara also warned #Moscow & #Tehran that it'd withdraw from #Astana if attacks continued.…
