This is a first look at the offshore platform in #Russia, which was likely involved in a nuclear explosion last Thursday. The incident is related to a suspected missile test. The platform is about 2.5 miles from the #Nenoksa missile test range. @Maxar
The platform seems mobile & appears to have been moved into place before the explosion —not visible at that location in satellite imagery from July. A nuclear fuel carrier, the Serebryanka, was moved into place around the same time. Image & Data via @MarineTraffic
@MarineTraffic The presence of the Serebryanka is relevant and might offer clues of what happened. This very ship was previously used in recovery effort for a crashed SSC-X-9 — a prototype of a nuclear-propelled cruise missile — according to @ArmsControlWonk

🔥@FrankFigliuzzi1: Don’t be surprised if FBI counter-intelligence div is looking at that (Deripaska) aluminum factory deal in Kentucky. Why does McConnell for years just not want to hear the truth abt Russia? It just begs the Q: Is there a flow of money? Is there a compromise??
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯It's nuts that US lifted #sanctions for close Putin ally #Deripaska—who Manafort briefed during #Russia's attack! That #McConnell stopped a bipartisan effort to reverse it, then got a Russian alum plant in #Kentucky smells of corruption if not…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯Not only did McConnell push to lift sanctions for Putin's pal #Deripaska. But Mitch's Kentucky taxpayers must give the Russian oligarch's Rusal $15,000,000 to help Russia get a foothold in US economy! Of course, #MoscowMitch denies knowing about any "Russian investor."🤔#maddow

This thread is dedicated to the important information that our "CIA" buries and unearths. May 24, 1984 was indeed an important day and it's not because he broke ground for the new HQ.
On May 24, 1984 the US House Delayed #GunReformNow Gun Vote on Red Flag Laws . Funny how this is soooooo coincidentally topic of discussion right now. 5/24/84
Crimes committed in El Salvador like what we seen in #HongKong today (another coincidence) and the Democrats were pushing for "aid" and the Republicans were saying NO - we will not intervene... in the end the Dems won and we know what happened when they got their way 5/24/84

Wow Putin is scared. #Russia TV did one of their propaganda “exposes” to discredit @CNN reporter @clarissaward as a spy b/c she’s investigating Kremlin secret Wagner army. She even interviewed a mercenary. Recall 3 well-known Russian journalists were killed investigating Wagner.
.@CNN reporter interviewed a Wagner mercenary—#Russia’s secret private army he says "does anything Putin says" to boost Russian influence & suppress American. Same group that seized #Crimea, operates in #Ukraine, #Syria, #Africa. Kept secret to give Kremlin plausible deniability.
.@CNN reporter found out first hand about KGB #Putin’s #Russia. Doing a story on Kremlin-tied Wagner mercenary private army, @clarissaward was followed, filmed, had a guy go thru her hotel room, and became the subject of a Russian #disinformation attack video calling her a “spy.”

This article in @guardian, by an employee of Swedish state & Khodorkovsky-funded @meduzaproject targeting #Russia, on the recent fringe pro-Western liberal protests in Moscow is so full of distortions, omissions & outright brazen lies it is difficult to know where to start...
@guardian @meduzaproject Point by point:
1. The leaders are arrested b/c despite being offered sanctioned protest sites they turned many of these down & repeatedly call for unsanctioned protest marches w express intent of provoking police to be detained & play repressed martyrs for Western media cameras
@guardian @meduzaproject ^Inciting people to an unsanctioned protest march often into busy thoroughfares is a crime in Russia as it is most developed countries and is subject to being charged & arrested.

So former GOP Gov Mike Huckabee (Sarah's dad) is touring Russia & the Baltics. So ignorant, he shows off selfie in Estonia—in front of a Russian Orthodox Church—& praises Estonians cherishing freedom🤦‍♀️Yea—They were occupied by Russia & Russian churches are known influence agents.
So Huckabee's in Russia. The country is convulsing under the weight of Putin's authoritarian repression. 50,000 protesters took to the streets last weekend. The Kremlin is jailing opposition leaders, beating random ppl. But GOP Huckabee's joking about Putin's shirtless agitprop!
Here's former Republican Gov (now @FoxNews propagandist) Mike Huckabee on the Baltic Sea, dining with pro-Trump propagandist Rick Santorum (still on @CNN for some reason). He mocks collusion, the media, & spews Clinton & Obama conspiracy theories. All in a day's propaganda work.

Is it ‘dumbness’? Is it Machiavellian? Is it fear? Is it pure evil? Is it group-thought myopia?

Why are western elites using a wrecking ball policy to international relations esp. in relation to Russia & China? What underpins this apparent stupidity?

What are the factors underlying attempts by western elites to undermine #China, #Russia, #Iran, #Syria, #Venezuela, #Cuba & #Nicaragua?

What are the emotions involved?

What considerations are believed to be of vital national importance to the West?

On the face of it, according to many analysts well versed in geopolitical matters the West is on a suicidal course currently.

China & Russia are not going away. China in particular is not going to lose its growing economic power.

So what is going on?

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.

THREAD: The Kremlin's new crackdown on @Navalny_En‘s FBK anti-#corruption foundation is reprehensible but predictable: as the focus shifted from cosmopolitan Muscovites to the region’s + impoverished public servants, that's when Navalny risked being a threat... /1
...After all, protests in Moscow were awkward + embarrassing, but so long as the security forces remained loyal + effective, that’s all they were. Even at the height of Bolotnaya, this never looked to be a Russian Maidan... /2 Navalny targets public servants (including, NB, police) + seeks to build up network in the regions, this could *potentially* be something v different. Kremlin knows #corruption is its Achilles heel, something that can mobilise oppo across class, region, ethnic divides /3
