Regarding #Poroshenko.

As you may or may not know, he is accused of treason. His alleged crime, you ask? Collusion with #Medvedchuk to facilitate illegal sales of separatist coal from #DNR and #LNR territories, effectively funding them, in 2014-15. In effect, the equivalent of
Israel buying coal from Hamas or Islamic Jihad.

If you recall, #SBU apprehended #Medvedchuk when he attempted to flee #Ukraine in a military uniform with the assistance of #FSB agents.

#Poroshenko has been tied to multiple offshore accounts and more than a little
less-than-kosher activities. You can read all about it in the #Panama #Papers and draw your independent conclusions.

Now, I'm not a judge, nor jury, but I do have a nose for shysters, and it's tingling. And maybe during peacetime we can be more complacent about it, but now,

Former KGB, FSB, GRU agents/officers and how the West has a tendency to see them.
With my 45 years experience of working with the Russians, their security services and in 90s and early 2000s with security detail for the extremely wealthy Russian elite Image
I deem myself experienced enough to express my opinion about the topic here...
What we in the west often do is as soon as a former agent but preferably officer makes themselves known to us we put them on a pedestal and take their words for gospel. Image
I have met so many Russian security agents/officers over the years both when I have been questioned by them in USSR/Russia and when I have met former agents/officers and a vast majority of them are simply cogs in a massive wheel working on pretty mundane assignments and very,very

#Russia`n ex-#FSB and #GRU agent Igor"Strelkov" Girkin make an analyst about current situation in #Ukraine

#Turpo #säkpol Image
Operational situation:

1. After the "successful completion of first stage of the operation" (which ended in a large-scale RETREAT from territory of the #Kiev, #Chernihiv & #Sumy regions) - there is redeployment & concentration of forces in #Donetsk sector of the front.
Apparently (& according to statements of political leadership of Russia), it is here that it is planned to carry out the "second stage" & solve problem of completely clearing territory of the LDNR from enemy groups.

A🧵thread on #Navalny so that hopefully it is clearer to Westerners why Ukrainians are sceptical of him (and no, Ukrainians aren't fools who need stuff explained to them !NEWSFLASH! our opinion kinda matters). As a teaser: twit by the man himself criticizing arms support for 🇺🇦
Peculiarly, despite criticizing #putin, #Navalny somehow supports #Kremlin's strategies, first, most obvious, his stance on the matter with #Russian annexation of #Crimea (our "#Sudetenland" if you will) is pretty clear - he supports it!
One thing on Crimea annexation he's not happy with - he would like to legalize it internationally (and indeed he'd a handy figure to do so, after toxic #putin is done).
Although, he isn't really as liberal as Russian propaganda paints him (hm.. why would they do it, huh?)

Because most of people don`t know who that #Russia`n ex-#FSB and #GRU agent Igor"Strelkov" Girkin is, it's probably best to tell something about him. Image

"All right, let me be a traitor but I will tell the truth. Within reasonable limits of course. Our division fighting on the right bank of Dnipr at Hostomel, Bucha, Irpin, is bogged down in the urban fighting, bogged down in the forests and marshes of that area. "
"And once those forests green out in a month they will be shot at from every bush. Despite the large amounts of machinery and troops they don’t have enough to take on this terrain."

🔴1/5 The Ukrainian Defense Ministry's Main Military Intelligence directorate has reported Russian elites have been planning to remove Vladimir #Putin from power – NV

#StopRussia #StopRussianAggression #StandWithUkraine…
2/5 A powerful opposition group has started forming among top Russian business circles, which allegedly has the support of #Russia's FSB security service. "Several variants are being discussed - poisoning, a sudden illness or an accident," Ukrainian intelligence says.
3/5 Influential Russians have already been looking for a replacement for #Putin. Some see FSB Director Alexander #Bortnikov as a likely candidate. Bortnikov recently fell out of favor with the Russian dictator.

Nelle ultime due settimane sono state adottate sanzioni contro la cerchia di #Putin. In Occidente si pensa che così facendo, potremmo assistere ad un regime change a #Mosca per mano degli alti ranghi. Perché questo potrebbe non succedere mai? (1/8)🧵
1) Innanzitutto è necessario definire a quale gruppo di fedelissimi ci si riferisce. Ad oggi, gli #oligarchi (intesi come “businessmen”) sono stati soppiantati dall’establishment nell’ambito della sicurezza, i cosiddetti #siloviki.
Se Putin riesce a controllare i siloviki, non dovrà poi preoccuparsi così tanto degli uomini d’affari. Questo non significa che figure come Roman #Abramovič non contino niente, ma che è più sensato far pressione più sui siloviki che su un Oleg #Deripaska.

Last year, we got an anonymous tip that "a global cyber crime group acting on an FSB order has hacked one of your contributors. The only thing they were interested on, was anything related to your @navalny investigation". We took enormous measures to upgrade our e-security (1/n)
We tried to figure out what that cyber-crime group was - that apparently takes orders from the FSB. The Russian invasion of Ukraine finally brought the answer. A pro-Ukraine hacker from that cyber-crime group leaked their internal chats. It's the #conti group.

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image
