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. Image
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. Image

THREAD: #Russia-#Turkey interaction over #NagornoKarabakh getting uneasy. After #Moscow turned down #Ankara’s proposal to set up #Syria-type format for Karabakh (#KarabakhAstana) @MevlutCavusoglu told #Lavrov cease-fire not gonna happen until #Armenia leaves occupied Azeri areas Image
Earlier, I forecasted 👇 that #Turkey's ultimate goal in this war was not to fight anyone but get a new deal with #Russia. It was obvious from @RTErdogan's criticism of Minsk OSCE group performance on #Karabakh. Bu the devil is in details & here they are
1.#Turkey's position - to support #Azerbaijan - meant to disguise its interest - to extend its influence in #Caucasus.
Turkey hopscotching crises -#Greece/#Cyprus,#Libya,#Syria now Karabakh to increase its capitalization in the market of regional powers w/ great power ambitions

Voor wie het interview met #Navalny niet lezen kan, hierbij een draadje met de belangrijkste details: ....

spiegel.de/politik/auslan…
1) Interview op de redactie van @derspiegel . Zijn handen trillen bij het inschenken van water. Hij is 12 kilo kwijt.
@derspiegel 2) Navalny verontschuldigt zich als hij pathetisch klinkt, maar hij is Duitsland zeer dankbaar. Artsen in het Charité hebben 2 maal zijn leven gered: zijn lichaam genezen en zijn persoonlijkheid terug opgebouwd.

"#Putin waged a campaign to drag us down...Putin's design is to be the last man standing" former US Nat'l Security Adviser HR McMaster tells @washingtonpost live on #Russia "He wants to polarize our societies in the West...pit us against each other"
US adversaries - "They view us as weak at the moment" former US Nat'l Security Adviser HR McMaster tells @washingtonpost

THREAD: The Kremlin’s outlandish handling of Europe’s concerns about the #Navalny assasination attempt and the crisis in Belarus is setting up a rupture similar to what occurred after the Ukraine crisis in 2014. 1/x
During the initial phase of the #coronavirus pandemic, there were hopes in German, French, and UK govt circles that it might be possible to lower the temperature and get Putin to focus on challenges closer to home. That turned out to be wishful thinking. 2/x
In reality, the Kremlin hasn’t budged an inch on its core agenda. In a new paper for Carnegie’s #GlobalRussia project, I explain why the Kremlin’s relations with Europe’s leading powers are essentially stuck on auto-pilot and why that’s increasingly risky for Moscow. 3/x

Amazing to watch Putin's clique's response to the #Navalny poisoning. It's been barely a month, and we've already seen the following explanations:
* he wasn't poisoned at all
* Germans poisoned him
* there is no such thing as Novichok
* Novichok was administered by his own people
Just as it was (and is) with the shooting down of Malaysian flight MH17 over Ukraine, whenever Russians are clearly guilty, their go-to method is to throw as many "alternative facts" out there as possible, no matter how bulshitty and obviously false they are...
The idea is, as always, to confuse and obfuscate, ultimately making people think that everyone is lying (including and especially the victim; Ukraine and Navalny in particular), and there is no such thing as the truth...

Spannend und sehr amüsant:

23. September 2020: Maria #Zakharova, Pressesprecherin des Außenamtes, meint weder in #Russland noch in der #UdSSR habe es jemals Arbeiten an einem Nervenkampfstoff mit der Bezeichnung #Novichok gegeben. 1/3

tass.ru/politika/95333…
15. September 2020: #Naryshkin, Leiter des Auslandsgeheimdienstes, versichert, #Russland habe gemäß internationalen Verpflichtungen alle Bestände an chemischen Waffen inklusive #Novichok vernichtet. 2/3

Einige Überlegungen zum Vergiftungsfall #Navalny #Thread

#Merkel hat ja zu keinem Zeitpunkt von eindeutiger Schuld des #Kreml gesprochen. Sie hat lediglich festgehalten, dass eine Vergiftung mit einer Substanz aus der Wirkstoffgruppe von #Novichok – zweifelsfrei – vorliegt. 1/7
Erwähnenswert ist, dass Theresa May sich im Fall #Skripal mit dem Begriff „highly likely“ abzusichern versuchte. #Merkel formuliert ihre Thesen grundsätzlich äußerst überlegt und mit viel Bedacht, die Verwendung des Begriffes „zweifelsfrei“ kann aus diesem Grund... 2/7
...nur eines bedeuten: Für #Merkel steht die Tatsache der Vergiftung #Navalny|s mit einer Substanz aus der Wirkstoffgruppe von #Novichok bereits am 2. September absolut eindeutig fest. 3/7

Spannende Entwicklung: Laut einem Bericht von @lemondefr behauptet #Putin im Gespräch mit #Macron, dass #Navalny sich selbst mit #Novichok vergiftet haben soll. Dabei bezeichnet Putin Navalny als Störenfried und Scharfmacher (fr. trublion).

lemonde.fr/international/…
Was ist aber daran so spannend? Bereits am 14. September erkennt #Putin an, dass #Navalny mit #Novichok vergiftet wurde und dass dieser Nervenkampfstoff in #Russland de facto jedermann zugänglich bzw. relativ einfach herzustellen sei.
#Russland scheint, jedenfalls gegenüber seinen zentralen EU-Partnern, dem offiziellen Bericht der Organisation für das Verbot chemischer Waffen (OPCW) vorgreifen zu wollen.

First Trump refused to comment about Navalny. Now White House spokesperson @kayleighmcenany bends over backwards to avoid talking about a possible US response (eg new sanctions). #NobodysBeenTougher
cc: @michaelcrowley
The White House response is at odds with Pompeo's suggestion that US will respond after "all facts are available" (presumably he's referring to ongoing work by OPCW) in interview with @Bild. Whom to believe? bild.de/politik/auslan…
It hasn't got much attention (yet), but in the end, the President is required by the CBW Control and Warfare
Elimination Act of 1991 to make a formal determination whether Russia is responsible for use of chemical weapons in the Navalny attack.

1/ A potential contender for the "leader of pro-Western opposition" crowd in Russia , pardoned by Putin for his economic crimes and living in EU oil oligarch Khodorkovsky, implied that Putin "poisoned #Navalny " because he want to distract attention from the events in Belarus ImageImage
2/ This is the most stupidest theory related to the Navalny's alleged poisoning, knowing the reaction against Russia on the Skripal's & Litvinenko's poisonings
IMO, it would be more probable if Khodorkovky was killing the competitors off , knowing that the CIA regime
3/ is planning the regime change operation in Russia at the end of Putin's presidential term.

Interview met Maria #Pevchikh (foto), de meest mysterieuze medewerker van Alexei #Navalny (BBC 18-9-2020) "Het was ons duidelijk dat er iets heel erg mis was. En dit is natuurlijk Rusland. Vergiftiging is hier bijna de norm." (Tendentieus of niet 🤔)

Rusland, BBC desinfo, Bellingcat desinfo, #Navalny en protesterende MSM onderzoeksjournalisten. Waarom protesteert de NL MSM nooit tegen overheids machtsmisbruik tegen Rypke Zeilmaker? Je bent voor #FreeSpeech of niet 😉

Heißer Tipp: Wenn es eng wird, rücke man die #NordStream2-Kritiker in die Ecke der Trump-Vasallen. Das zieht immer. Das Argument, "wir" müssten zwischen russischem Erdgas & US-Frackinggas wählen, ist ein löchriger Strohmann. Thread/1
Primäres Ziel von NS2 ist es, die Ukraine aus dem Gastransit zwischen Russland und Westeuropa zu drängen. Die Röhre hat ein Transportvolumen von 55 Mrd cbm/a. Um diese Menge soll laut Vertrag zwischen Gazprom & Naftogaz der Transit durch die Ukraine reduziert werden. /2
Nimmt man #Turkstream hinzu, kommt man exakt auf die 90 Mio cbm, die heute durch die #Ukraine nach Europa transportiert werden. Das führt nicht nur massiven finanziellen Einbußen, sondern gibt Putin freie Hand, den politisch-militärischen Druck auf die Ukraine zu erhöhen. /3

Oggi a Bruxelles la Lega si è astenuta sulla condanna a un dittatore #Lukashenko ed il M5s si è astenuto nel voto che censurava l'avvelenamento di #Navalny.

Perfetta simmetria.
Un disegno geopolitico assimilabile, anzi congruente, sia pur da fronti opposti della politica interna.

A Cina e Russia non interessa di governo ed opposizione, anzi più è debole e conflittuale l'Italia meglio è. Vanno benissimo sia M5s di Manlio Di Stefano che Lega di Savoini.
Anzi che siano su fronti opposti è una garanzia: si chiama schema win-win. Comunque vadano gli schieramenti e la danza delle elezioni la collocazione geopolitica dell'Italia resterà ambigua.

#Navalny

There we have it:
the German gov't referred to EU and NATO for a common response to the suspected poisoning of Alexey Navalny, and the European Parliament now passes a resolution calling for an international probe & suspension of Nord Stream 2!

rt.com/russia/500929-… Image
The resolution has no legal bearing - it is pure political posturing intended to “continue to isolate Russia in international forums” & “to prioritize the approval of EU human rights sanctions”.

How can you call for an investigation - and already anticipate the results?
Meanwhile, the Navalny story is taking on a "Skripalesque" flavour:
now it is the bottle, left in his hotel room in Tomsk!

Oh dear, another version🤣? One before was that it was a bottle that "#Navalny always carries with him " Image
Just read this:
"German journalists called this bottle a key piece of evidence that allowed to determine the type of poisonous substance ... : traces of Novichok in the body DISAPPEARED under the influence of metabolism, but not on the bottle."⁉️
proekt.media/investigation/…
The funniest part is that one of those activists was barefoot, in search of nerve agent in #Navalny former hotel room. They"found"bottles, packed& GAVE THEM TO ... Maria Pevchikh (!) , Navalny mistress/ UK contact/Mi6, most likely
Who took them to Germany,in Navalny's plane

Russian Diplomacy, September 15:
Lavrov spoke with #Italy's Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, who insisted on Lavrov explaining the #Navalny case, which he obviously failed to do.

They also discussed the situations in #Libya, #Belarus, and bilateral cooperation. Image
#Germany's relations with #Russia seem to be melting down over the attempted assassination by the #GRU of #Navalny.

Lavrov spewed threats and garbage on the phone with Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas over the case. Image

Fascinating piece on legal grounds to stop Nord Stream 2 by Konrad Schuller (who doesn’t seen to be on Twitter) in @faznet —> in German, so for all you poor souls who don’t speak my mother tongue, here’s a thread to summarize 1/n

faz.net/-gq5-a3bac?pre… #fplus via @faznet
Background: there’s a growing movement in Berlin arguing for cancellation of Nord Stream 2 (details in my Sept. 10 FT column brookings.edu/blog/order-fro…)
Now the Green co-party leader @ABaerbock and Green MEP @bueti have laid out the legal argument:
1/2
thanks to @szaulo, here’s Konrad Schuller’s twitter handle: @SchullerKonrad
Back to the legal argument for stopping #NordStream2:

1. GE government should declare that the pipeline threatens European security. Why?

Another defamation case, against Navalny personally, was also due - as he insulted a WWII veteran.
