Revealed: Russia 'hired network of Britons to go after enemies of #Putin', according to testimony given to parliament’s intelligence and security committee - the #Russia report, suppressed by Boris Johnson. My exclusive with ⁦@dansabbaghtheguardian.com/world/2020/mar…
The @guardian is publishing Bill Browder’s evidence to the ISC, delivered in 2018. We don’t know if it features in final report. It paints a depressing picture of British former intelligence officers, MPs, PR guys lobbying on behalf of #Kremlin interests in return for £££££
The eventual report contains two sections - one public, the other secret. The confidential part has already been ‘published’ or circulated inside Whitehall, among spooks and government insiders. It’s this section which is likely to discuss #Russian emigre donations to #Tory party

A few points to share with you now #Syria #Idlib #Russia #Turkey
The Russian-Turkish deal is valid for six months. Turkey will have to present all maps where its proxies are deployed and where jihadists and foreign figgers are deployed in the entire area of Idlib and surrounding+
#Syria and #Russia have the freedom to bomb all jihadists positions as included in the non-announced deal. Therefore there is no violation of the ceasefire unless, along the M4, Turkey fail to clear the Saraqeb-Latakia road and the Syrian army becomes under fire.
#Turkey asked until the 15th of March to clear jihadists or dislodge them (perhaps to other parts of Syria at the moment. That is not Russia/Damascus's problem) from the main axis agreed in #Moscow. Turkey said if Jihadists won't leave, Ankara shall not intervene in their favour.

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

Thread/ As one of the biggest regional escalations in the history of the #Syria war unfolds, here are a few thoughts on the Turkish-Russian/Syrian triangle of fighting in #Idlib – who will back down
1/Evidently #Russia has many limitations and concerns when it comes to an armed confrontation with #Turkey, something which has become increasingly apparent with its decisions in Syria, it does not want to enter a direct war with Turkey
2/#Russia has always proceeded with caution with its regional competitors or partners in #Syria, be that NATO, Turkey, or even Israel, it prefers to take a neutral or passive stance, for example the Syrian S300’s have not been activated and use of them is clearly not allowed.

Short THREAD on my take on #Russia's [in]action to #Turkey's onslaught on #Syria/n army within last 48 hours
[Caveat - this is just my specualtion based on how I read RUS foreign policy, #Putin-#Erdogan relations, and I may be totally wrong]
1. Following killing of TUR servicemen, #Putin, #Erodgan had phone talk where #Turkey's president asked #Russia/n counterpart to "to stand aside in #Syria" and "do what is necessary”, i.e. let Turkey fight Syrian government forces alone"
reuters.com/article/us-syr…
2. In this piece for @AlMonitor I discuss the kind of debates in #Moscow over the crisis with #Turkey and what's at stake for #Russia in #Idlib (and, actually, beyond that). No doubt #Kremlin considers all of this when chosing options on #Syria

#Important #News! #Threade

#Israel #Jerusalem #Russia #Syria

#Russia's #ambassador to #Syria released this week what some saw as a veiled threat to #Israel if Israel continued to #bomb #Iranian positions in the war-torn country.
On February 6th, 20 #Syrian and #Iranian military officials were #killed in an airstrike on a target near #Damascus. The attack also resulted in #Syrian air defense systems accidentally firing on a #Russian 172-passenger plane.
The plane was able to land safely at a nearby airport. However, #Russian #ambassador Alexander Yefimov was not interested in the Israeli justifications. In an interview with Sputnik arabic, Yefimov described the #Israeli #attacks as “#provocative and very #dangerous”.

2. The US is one of several countries watching from the sidelines as #Russia and #Turkey consolidate power in #Libya as they have in #Syria and to some extent in #Iraq. @NarativLive
3. The new agreement appears to favor Russian-backed warlord Khalifa #Haftar and his main sponsor Vladimir Putin. @NarativLive

#Iran admits downing a civilian jetliner #PS752 after calling the US and others claim as 'psychological warfare'.

Ops Martyr #Soliemani has been a sobering wakeup call for #Tehran.

11 revenge scenarios yet to be realised while some 200 Iranians already dead, stampede included.
Religious fanatics - in #India and #Iran both - failed to act professionally in brief, offensive battles.

Both #Delhi and #Tehran made catastrophic decisions.

After initial denial, both had to admit failure.

The world isn't safe with #RSS, #Shiite extremists in power.

#Stop
#Iran can't get away by scapegoating a low-ranking official, downing an enemy plane is never a tactical decision. An officer of the level of major general or brigadier would have approved and directed. Allowing field commanders to act on their own proves lack of professionalism.

The #PutinsPuppet Paradox
1/13 If you’re one of those #MAGA People (like me) you have no doubt seen @realDonaldTrump
Called “Putin’s Puppet” and May have let it get to you or just laughed it off.
I’ve done both but anymore, the latter is best AS IT IS laughable. BUT..
2/13is it true?? I mean could our
Beloved @POTUS be a tool of the EVIL #RUSSIANS!? 😱
Depends on who you ask...
@RepAdamSchiff aka Adumb Schitt and @RepSwalwell Aka
“Erica” have said without a doubt @realDonaldTrump not only #Colluded with Russia to win the election but...
3/13 that @realDonaldTrump is in fact a #Russian AGENT!! 😱
Adumb Schitt most notably said there was even evidence... and not just classified but also
“OPEN SOURCE!” Meaning a simple interweb search and I’d find out I voted for a Russian agent! 😂 But unfortunately...

What dose this say?

The #Iran forbidds his #chess player to travel to the championship in #Moscow. This latest spell by the #Iranian Ministry of #Sports is in response to an incident in mid-December during a tournament in #Spain.
Grandmasters Parham #Maghsoodloo and Amin #Tabatabaei had #played against an #Israeli #FIDE champion in a blitz tournament. Competition with #Israelis has been banned from #Iranian athletes for 36 years.

#Germany #Russia #USA #Nordstream2

The company Allseas stopped its work on #Nordstream2 and the last 300km. The #US punitive measures of the "Law for the Protection of #Europe's Energy Security"
target the operating #companies of the highly #specialized #ships with which the #pipes for the pipeline are laid through the #BalticSea. As a punitive measure, entry bans are provided as well as the freezing of assets in the #USA.
#Washington argues that #Germany will move to #Moscow depending on the pipeline. Democratic Senators Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson wrote a letter to Allseas chief Edward Heerema.However, if the company continues "even for a single day" after signing the US Sanctions Act, it could face

The #sanctions against the #BalticSea pipeline decided by the #US #Senate meet with resistance in #Moscow, criticism also came from #German Chancellor #Merkel. The #Kremlin still expects #NordStream2 to be completed.
Meanwhile, #Russia accuses the #UnitedStates of violating the law with pipeline sanctions.The punitive measures #violate international law and are an example of unfair competition, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskow. "Such actions do not please Moscow or the #European capitals;
they do not like #Berlin or #Paris," said Peskow. He accused the #US of violating #international law and "expanding its artificial dominance to the #European market". Chancellor Angela #Merkel has also criticized the #US Congress's sanction resolution.

The @FBI ran 4 informants and “a few” undercover agents against Trump campaign aides @CarterWPage and @GeorgePapa19, according to #IGHorowitz.

FBI told the OIG it was snooping on Page and Papadopoulos because of their contacts with #Russia. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/fbi-targeted-t…
But the @FBI also had one of the informants reach out to a high-level Trump campaign official who was not investigated. That official appears to have been #SamClovis.

The informant has been identified by @EpochTimes and others as Cambridge professor #StephanHalper.
@FBI All conversations Halper had with Page, Papadopoulos, and Clovis were monitored by the @FBI, the OIG said.

#IGHorowitz made the revelations in a Dec. 9 report on his review of a #FISA warrant taken out by the FBI against Page and other aspects of the related FBI investigation.

NEW signs #Russia's relentless info ops targeting US troops are paying off-almost half (46%) of armed services households now say they see #Moscow as an ally

Worried @DeptofDefense "actively working to expose & counter" the #Kremlin's efforts

More here:
voanews.com/usa/pentagon-c…
@DeptofDefense Defense & security officials have told @VOANews #Russia has been targeting US military personnel, specifically, with a ramped-up influence campaign starting as far back as 2017 so that they would be predisposed to view #Moscow in a more favorable way
Now a survey by the @RonaldReagan conducted in October found 46% of armed services households in the US see #Russia "as more of an ally"

In comparison, only 28% of all of those surveyed & just 30% of those w/"very favorable" views of @POTUS saw #Russia as an ally
