Thread: 30 May 2022: Day 96 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Great piece on the #KGB's reconstitution in #Russia in all-but name since the end of the Cold War, and the way this paradigm of a "counterintelligence state" undid #Putin in #Ukraine against Western intelligence systems that have absorbed new techniques. rusi.org/explore-our-re…
Offsetting the hysteria since 2016 about #Russia's government and watching the obvious failures in #Ukraine has led to some bias for the incompetence explanation over malevolence. But the malevolence really is there, much of it aimed at Russians.

While we're waiting to see if the #Russians in #Kherson grew a pair and are actually looking for a fight, some new information about Aleksandr #Kobets whom we've met before, a traitor and collaborator appointed by the #Russians as the mayor of the city of #Kherson.

Let's begin.
#Kobets Alexandr Yuryevich was born on September 27, 1959 in #Kherson, registered in #Kyiv on Obolonskaya St. Kobets was a former #KGB officer, and from 1991 an employee of the #SBU.
In the 90s, Alexandr oversaw "economic" issues, in particular, the operation of an oil refinery
in #Kherson. In the early 2000s, #Kobets was transferred to the head office of the #SBU.

In 2006, Kobets was registered as an employee of the #Kyiv company Ukragrokhimpromholding, which traded in ammonia. It was founded in #Ukraine by the #Russian A. Bessonov, who in the USSR

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

Thread: 3 May 2022: Day 69 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Pentagon says #China is avoiding direct military assistance to #Russia's attempt to erase #Ukraine ... for now
Truly bizarre for #Russia to have picked this fight with #Israel; so needless. Jerusalem had kept quiet for two months about Moscow's use of the "Nazi" pretext for the attack on #Ukraine and walked a fine line in general over the war, now forced to change

Die Entschuldigungen „Ich habe mich in #Putin geirrt!“ (#Schwesig) oder wer im Zusammenhang mit der Einschätzung Putins fehlerfrei ist, der werfe den ersten Stein (#Stegner), sind billig & falsch!
Der Krieg in der #Ukraine ist nur ein Punkt in einer langen Liste!

Ein Thread!
Der Krieg in der #Ukraine mag vielleicht überraschend sein – für @ZelenskyyUa allerdings nicht – aber dass Putin ein Despot ist liegt schon seit über 20 Jahren auf dem Tisch. Wer anderes erzählt belügt sich selbst bzw. wollte es einfach nicht wissen.
Denn Opfer, Kriege und Angriffe Putins gibt es viele. Was der Preis dafür sein kann #Putin zu kritisieren, erzählt niemand hinter vorgehaltener Hand, jeder weiß das. Eine Chronologie!

Den Start macht von 1999 bis 2009 der zweite #Tschetschenienkrieg.

1. One of the strange features of #German-#Russian relations during the last 20 years was the physical contact of German politicians with #Putin & Co. To be sure, similar photographs of #VladimirPutin hugging Berlusconi, Modi, Macron, & other non-German leaders exist too.
2. But the range of politicians on both sides who, over the years, went beyond diplomatic handshakes is surprising. One suspects continuation of a #KGB practice in these physical approaches from the Russian side.
@RusVerstehen @deruforum @russlandRU @TerekMedia @Konflikt_Sicher
3. Yet one wonders why various German politicians, like Matthias Platzek below, would allow or even initiate such embarrassing scenes with representatives of an authoritarian regime. Political instinct & expert advice should have warned German politicians against such encounters.

Abgesehen davon, dass der neue Name #DSN international noch nicht gesickert ist, muss man das ernst nehmen. Die russische Botschaft in Wien ist einer der wichtigsten Spionage-Hubs in Nähe des Kriegsgeschehen #Ukraine
Angesichts des jüngsten Drucks auf die ukrainischen Nachschublinien stellt sich die Frage, wie viel davon von Wien aus koordiniert wird
Die russische Botschaft Wien ist eine der größten Legalresidenturen von RU weltweit. Noch in den 1980er Jahren unter Andropow konzipiert

Toplet bombs are still the main reason why the Light forces can not intervene directly in the situation on the surface of the planet. Image
The Light forces are now clearing the quantum and subquantum anomaly on the higher mental plane with maximum possible speed and as soon as that is done, they will start clearing the subquantum anomaly on the physical plane, which is the riskiest part of the whole operation.
The most critical timeframe is between now and April 24th.
Accidentally or not so accidentally the cutoff date of April 24th coincides with the end of Kala Sarpa Dosha, a very challenging period in Vedic Jyotish astrology, which ends on April 22:

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.

AL EX ACTOR CÓMICO DE #UCRANIA🇺🇦 LE DICEN #CHURCHILL, Y A LOS EX MILITARES EN #ARGENTINA🇦🇷 ASESINOS
En 1982 los #EEUU🇺🇸 instó a #Galtieri a recuperarlas Islas #Malvinas
En 2022 la administración #Biden animó al presidente #Zelensky a desafiar a #RUSIA🇷🇺 y hoy también abandonaron!
En el año 1982, como hoy, el Mundo 🌎 también estaba dividido en dos bloques. Pero cuando a la #Argentina🇦🇷 “le soltó las manos la #OTAN” quien cumplió su no intervención en el OTRO BLOQUE fue #RUSIA🇷🇺 (ex #URSS)
Hoy tiene mucha mejor suerte #Ucrania🇺🇦 porque al menos los apoyan.
No pienso entablar una discusión de que #Galtieri era un miembro del Proceso de Reorganización Nacional, gracias al cual HOY MUCHOS POLÍTICOS GOZAN DE SUS SALARIOS, lo que no sucedería si ganaba EL PLAN DEL #CUBA🇨🇺
Viviríamos en una dictadura. Hubo excesos?. Si.

#Russian embassy in #Helsinki #Finland is huge.

One of sanctions should be eviction of embassy from current premises, what is most likely military base, when 30 years ago it was only military intelligence center.

#Mariehamn consulate should also be abolished.

#Turpo #Ukraine Image
During Cold war #Russia`n embassy in #Finland had 52 embloyeees which 40 were #KGB officers. Only expansion, completed in 2015 alone, have 80 apartments for employees. Addition to old apartments.
Underground facilities of extension are a meager 40,000 cubic meters.
#Turpo
During cold war there were also assassination office there. Easy to guess why.

#Russian embassy is located 400m away from General Headquarter of @Puolustusvoimat, @DefenceFinland and @Suojelupoliisi. Political leadership & @niinisto is also located less that 1500m away.

Eminent Indian Leaders & their India - A Problem for the West or East

MK Gandhi, though his actions n methods pacified Hindus to a level were our ethos changed subconsciously into embracing non-violence he was still an eminent leader who wanted to dismantle ~1
congress which was a setup by the British as a way to handle Indian grievances but he was eliminated not by M #ISI r X’ #CIA #Mi6 to the naked eye but by an #Hindu Just to put the Hindu renaissance at halt n to inject tht feeling of self-shame into every Hindu post independence~2
⏩ We may have diff in ideology n opinions but #Indira emerged as undoubtably a strong figure tht India was deprived of post Sardar/Sashtri. Her 1971 Bangladesh operation, Pokhran Nuclear test, operation Blue star (of course Bhindranwale was her own monster but) all shows her ~3

Revealed: the spies who came in from the cold – how Vladimir #Putin’s alleged lover and an old family friend hid their fortunes in sunny #Monaco, with help from a British accountant. But was the money really theirs? My @guardian story from #PandoraPapers theguardian.com/news/2021/oct/…
In 2003 a mysterious offshore company, Brockville Development Ltd, bought a luxury €3.6m apartment overlooking Monaco’s marina. Its owner? Svetlana Krivonogikh, a 28-year-old #Russian woman who around the turn of the millennium became extremely rich #PandoraPapers
According to the #Russian investigative website Proekt, Krivonogikh was friends with Putin – and became his lover. Months before secretly buying the offshore Monaco property, Krivonogikh gave birth to a daughter Luiza Rozova. Putin is her Dad, Proekt alleges #PandoraPapers

The lengths the #KGB went to in trying to destroy #Solzhenitsyn even after he had been expelled from the Soviet Union are extraordinary, and not entirely irrational: they understood the danger he posed to them.

<Mini thread drawn from "The Sword and the Shield", pp. 312, 317-21>
Andropov first tried to expel Solzhenitsyn in autumn 1971, but Brezhnev listened to interior minister Nikolai Shchelokov, who said the great writer should be co-opted rather than persecuted. Andropov did not forget this, and later witch-hunted Shchelokov until he killed himself.
In late 1973, after Solzhenitsyn and Sakharov wrote an open letter that encouraged Congress to override the Nixon-Kissinger administration by passing Jackson-Vanik that linked Soviet trade privileges to human rights, Brezhnev said the KGB should have cracked down from the start.

#Pratasevich is the founder of the Telegram channel #Nexta which was broadly used to organize anti- government #protests, and another similar channel critical of the government, both of which are classified as extremist in #Belarus.”
