-Sordid saga of Aircraft Carrier INS Vikramaditya #India & #Russia
-India been buying #Russian weapons for 50 yrs, some good, some bad
-But story of Vikramaditya takes the cake
-Interestingly Russia’s latest offer of 3 K class subs at Rs1 could be another nightmare
-Soviet Union commissioned aircraft carrier Baku in 1988
-It was interesting mix of heavy cruiser & aircraft carrier
-It had an angled flight deck & a hangar
-1991 Soviet Union disintegrated, Baku came to Russia as Admiral Gorshkov and soon started rotting due to lack of funds
-On the other hand #IndianNavy was struggling with INS Viraat
-The only carrier #India had was to retire in 2007
-India had limited options
-#USA #France #Italy were costly options
-2004 Russia appeared as Guardian Angel & offered Admiral Gorshkov just for $974 million

🚨Far-right propagandist/#Russia🇷🇺Insider founder Charles Bausman took part in the #January6thInsurrection, then *fled the country to Moscow* leaving his 2020 Christmas lights and an American flag dangling from his porch.

@MichaelEHayden #TrumpRussia…
Shortly after moving from #Russia, Bausman & his Russian wife moved to Lancaster, PA in 2018. He pushed hard-right causes, including anti-lockdown protests during the #COVID19 pandemic & #StoptheSteal lies & hyped the #January6thInsurrection on social media. Then he disappeared🧐
Since then, Bausman made 3 TV appearances in #Russia talking about the #insurrection *in fluent Russian*. He pushed the lie that the election was stolen & asked a host to avoid saying he actively participated in the insurrection b/c he didn’t want someone to “show up at his door”

1. Just my perception formed when I managed a huge restaurant at the #Hilton in #NYC in late 1970s. The employees included post-Refusnik #RussianJews who I used to let hang out in my office when it was slow so they could smoke & teach me about the lives of #Soviet #Russian #Jews
2. including the brutal life in Soviet #gulags, rampant #corruption and constant #fear. Survival in a repressive society. At this same time I had been directed by the great Chekhovian director Nikos Psacharopoulos who directed me in scene study performing Kostia in the Seagull.
3. The method had supercharged my psyche at this time to freely accept Russian ions. IMO the popularity of being photographed in front of this hideous sculpture is Russian resistance humor. An inside joke.
