#Russia #Moscow #Coronavirus #vaccine #SputnikV

Russia has provisionally approved the world's first corona vaccine with the name "Sputnik V", but now there are doubts about the data. According to critics, some study results seem as if the developers had helped with Photoshop.
In an urgent procedure, Russia approved "Sputnik V" as the first corona vaccine worldwide for broad use, although the agent has hardly been tested in clinical studies to date.
Respected researchers from several countries are questioning the authenticity of the data that their Russian colleagues presented in the @TheLancet journal at the beginning of September as evidence of the vaccine's effectiveness. It is about the suspicion of clumsy manipulation.

1) Topic: European Genocide, #Jesuits and #Serbia

What is the background of Kalergi's plan for #Europe's destruction?

Why is #Christianity in danger?

2) When thinking how to start this topic, I remembered the words of Austrian cancellor Sebastian Kurz addressed to #Serbs.

During one of his interviews, he said that we should "give up the past (thinking of giving up #Kosovo) and look to the future"... ⬇️
3) He represents so-called modern European civilization that is forcing this nomadic approach to life - when you don't like it, you pack your stuff & leave. e.g. Pakistani or Algerians don't like where they have lived for centuries, so they leave and wish to settle in #Europe. ⬇️

It's election day in #Belarus and long lines are present outside voting boots throughout the country.

#Belarus: countless young Belarusians standing in line for hours waiting to vote.

Such a big difference with previous elections when voting boots were largely empty throughout the day
#Belarus: Sviatlana #Tsikhanouskaya has cast her vote.

Within a matter of weeks she went from being a English teacher and mother of two, to being #Lukashenko's biggest challenger

Detailed THREAD on #Russia-#Taliban alleged deal to kill #US military:

*The picture is of 27 November 2001
Author: Emmanuel Dunand/AFP
Title: “A Northern Alliance fighter and a Russian soldier compare their weapons"
1. The @nytimes stories have been making waves in the #US but they have been making waves in #Russia as well, so here’s a bunch of views on this from #Moscow…
2. OFFICIAL reaction: #Kremlin predictably castigated stories as “ridiculous” & “elaborate hoax”, added that #US,#Russia military have “their own dialogue system that contains restricted information," & “none of American reps have ever raised this question” [with #Moscow]

This thread by @hxhassan is worth a read -- #HTS's violent response to #AlQaeda affiliate Huras Al-Din's overreach will have significant consequences.

A few additional notes of my own, to follow:

- This is all entirely consistent with #HTS/#JFS/#Nusra policy since ~2014.
@hxhassan My understanding of events leading up to the all-out fight differs somewhat -- #HTS's arrest of Abu Saloh al-Uzbeki
& Abu Malik al-Talli were *very* inflammatory to HaD. Both were crucial sources of finance & external networks. Plus, they came amid several escalatory accusations:
@hxhassan 1. After Abu Saloh's arrest, rumor swirled that #Turkey's MIT had transferred messages from #Moscow to #HTS, requesting his extradition via #Ankara in exchange for political & economic rewards.

Abu Saloh is accused of coordinating multiple attacks in #Russia in recent yrs.

committed against #American citizens/taxpayers, is the idea that #JulianAssange can die in #Belmarsh Prison for exposing the #truth - @Snowden may die in #Moscow, afraid to come back to face 35 for #espionage, and #whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning can contemplate suicide...
Yet for some reason, thousands of retired #military/#intel - like #GeneralMcChrystal, can not only sell-out to any private intel company they want...but...(it gets better)

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

The intra-jihadi dynamic in #Idlib is rapidly intensifying, as #HTS is seeking to re-assert itself vis-a-vis (1) the opposition, (2) local civil society, (3) #Turkey & (4) increasingly exasperated #AlQaeda-leaning factions.

In doing so, it's revealing its multiple identities.
In recent weeks, we've seen escalatory events:

1. Khaled al-Aruri's death in a US drone strike

2. Formation of the #AlQaeda-leaning 'Stand Firm' ops room

3. #HTS arrest of:
- Sirajideen Makhtarov (Abu Saloh al-Uzbeki)
- Jamal Hassan Zayniya (Abu Malik al-Talli)
- Tauqir Sharif
Weeks ago, #HTS was attempting to [re-]build bridges with #Idlib civil society & now it's cracking down on divisive #AlQaeda loyalists & defecting critics.

Hard not to see the drivers involved here:

- Protect internal unity & regional primacy
- Undermine #AQ
- Message #Turkey

The evidence - given by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele - is the most compelling explanation so far as to why Boris #Johnson still refuses to publish the missing #Russia report, which he suppressed before last December's UK general election
In a confidential 2018 memo to the British parliament's intelligence and security committee (ISC) Steele accuses Theresa May and Johnson - at that point foreign secretary - of putting "party political interests" above "national security" - a "serious mistake", in his view

U.S.-Russian relations are at the lowest point since the Cold War with no signs of improvement. But that is unlikely to last forever. Global trends and domestic political dynamics in both countries will necessitate the resumption of dialogue between them. 2/14
By 2030, United States and #Russia are likely to face a different global landscape—a world with more intense U.S.-China competition, more nuclear and advanced conventional weapons, more conflicts, and technological transformations. 3/14…

Iran earned $41 billion in non-oil export revenue from March 2019 to March 2020. In the same year, oil exports amounted to just $9 billion, down from a peak of $119 billion just a few years ago. Around half of the total value is attributable to manufactured goods. Via @yarbatman

The Roots of #Antifa:

The extremist anarchist-communist group was initially part of the #SovietUnion’s front operations to bring about #Communist dictatorship in #Germany, and it worked to label all rival parties as “fascist.” (Thread👇)…
#Antifa can be traced to the “united front” of the #SovietUnion’s Communist International (Comintern) during the Third World Congress in #Moscow in June and July 1921, according to the German booklet “80 Years of Anti-Fascist Action” by Bernd Langer, published by…

THREAD: follow-up on my piece @MiddleEastInst on the much buzzed theme of #Russia “distancing itself” from #Assad.
I appreciate the interest and understand the controversies that some colleagues raised in regards to my piece. Let me clarify a few things…
1. As I noted in the text there’re 2 issues at play here.
(1) has to do with the sourcing of the reports that sparked the whole issue;
(2) has to do with the very nature of this discourse in Russia.
2.On sources - I discussed at lengths what I think was wrong with the reports on #Russia-#Assad that stirred such hype in Western and some Arab media and policy world. The point is - the reports are just inaccurate: they mix facts and make erroneous attributions..

INFOGRAPHIC🔎Timeline of @FBI’s #FISAAbuse in Trump Campaign Investigation

#EpochTimes provides a comprehensive timeline of details from the #IGReport, describing how the #FBI rushed to #Spy on the Trump campaign and the flaws in its case.

See more:…
In its pursuit of establishing #Surveillance on the Trump campaign, the #FBI turned its attention to @CarterWPage in the spring of 2016, culminating in the issuance of a #FISA warrant—which allows for some of the most intrusive #Spying methods on an US citizen.
As part of this process, the #FBI relied extensively on the flawed #SteeleDossier, leading an @FBI legal counsel to note that this was “essentially a single source FISA.”

In December 1992, the Washington Post (the one that always gets better scoops than the NYTimes even if the NYTimes does a better job at laying out the facts) published a story about a powerful junior Senator who was touching women wrong.
This Senator was also known as a stanch ally to the women. He spearheaded major feminist priorities. He also voted against Clarence Thomas. Dianne Feinstein even supported him!
His name was Robert Packwood. A Republican from Oregon who resigned in disgrace after 19 women came forward with credible allegations of sexual harassment and the Senate Ethics Committee chaired by #MoscowMitch voted to expel him.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

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.
