A fundamental forgotten but unresolved #OSINT: On August 20, 2020, #Navalny was allegedly poisoned with #Novichok in Tomsk. #Bellingcat then bought flight and phone connection data on the Darknet and extracted from it the private public mobile phone number of an #FSB man, ...
...who then admitted the whole poisoning plot on this private public mobile phone.
Q: How could Bellingcat link that private public cell phone number to an August 2020 crime when that number was not activated until November 2020?
And how is it possible that 3% of the calls with this number were made from Arlington / Washington DC while the pranked FSB cleaner is explaining to his "superior" (Navalny) that he is in Covid quarantine?

What is #Psychopathy? And is Vladimir Putin a #Psychopath?

A thread 🧵 based on what we know about his personality and history, and the Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience of the condition

People describe #Putin as a bully, a mafia boss, a barbaric war criminal, or simply as evil.

All of these views are correct, but Psychopathy is in many ways an attempt at a scientific understanding of evil…

If we understand the personality traits and behaviours of psychopaths, we can begin to understand the extent to which a person may be Psychopathic (or not).

As psychopathy exists on a spectrum, perhaps a better question is *how psychopathic* is Putin?

How can say this? Three reasons.

1. The chemical was not confirmed to be "novichok". Porton Down said it had found novichok in the #Skripal blood samples, but in court PD's expert wouldn't confirm this.
The #OPCW was careful not to explicitly identify #novichok in its analysis of the blood samples it received from the UK. It hedged its language in a strange way, merely saying it "confirmed" the UK's findings relating to the identity of the chemical. (2/6)
2. Nobody knows where the bottle of #novichok that turned up 4 months later in a flat in #Amesbury 8 miles away from #Salisbury, came from -- least of all Charlie Rowley, who supposedly found it. There's no evidence the bottle was ever in #Salisbury. (3/6)

#CaroleCadwalladr, seen here with her friend, the "ex-spy" Christopher Steele, has evidently been ordered to re-heat the #Skripal #Salisbury #novichok story (which Steele was involved with) because of the "biolabs" found in #Ukraine. So let's deconstruct her #disinformation. 1/11
#CaroleCadwalladr has long been known to be associated with UK intelligence. Documents reveal her connection to the discredited 'Integrity Initiative', a project intended to build a network of client journalists to promote the establishment's agenda. 2/11
This is the article we'll quickly look at, which #CaroleCadwalladr had published in The Observer today. We will see that she is the antithesis of an investigative journalist, carefully avoiding the important questions about stories like the #Skripals. 3/11…

I wanted to thank the many people who expressed support for my brother who was arrested in Moscow protest #StandWithUkraine. This means a lot to us. His last message was that he was released close to midnight. I brought up his plight 1) (thread)
2) not because I see equival. in Moscow protesters' plight and of kids hiding in shelters in Kiev hearing rockets and sirens. It is to highlight the obvious-that #Putin claim that "Russian people" desire the #occupation is a sham. That he has been waging a war on his own people
3) That even prior to invading in 2014 he developed and tested during the 2011-12 anti-Putin #SnowflakeRevolution rallies sophisticated machinery of media misinformation defaming protesters as fascists and opportunists on West. payroll. On this see my and @koheiw7 et al. paper in

Article by @PACE_News calling on Russia to launch an investigation into the use of a #Novichok nerve agent against #Navalny & to accept a Technical Assistance Visit from the #OPCW. Interesting to consider desired objectives/outcomes of a TAV 1.5 yrs after the incident.
TAVs are normally requested much earlier, eg immediately after an incident. This being said, TAVs respond to needs of the requesting State Party, and there is no time limit to request one if requested expertise is available.
Russia had officially requested a TAV from the #OPCW in October 2020 but refused the standard procedures for one, so no TAV took place. All related correspondence is here:…

@dankaszeta omitted significant facts and distorted aspects of the #Skripal case in his recent talk for @edskeptics, as I will show in this thread.

Kaszeta's talk is here. It's over an hour long but I'll give ~time reference points with my remarks.

Kaszeta blocked me on Twitter long ago.

This was after I asked him how it was possible that two people as physically different as Sergei and Yulia #Skripal could be *almost simultaneously overcome* by the effects of a nerve agent they had allegedly touched hours before.

After I blocked Kaszeta back (as I do with all who block me) he tried to claim I'd blocked him first!

That's the self-described "king of nerve agent Twitter".

Ah well.

Apart from listening to his @edskeptics talk, I also looked at his book, 'Toxic'.

Let's get started.

#Habeck und Waffenlieferungen an die #Ukraine - Kontext: Was tut Russland?

Seit 2014 gab es hunderte Expertenberichte über russische Waffen und Waffenlieferungen in den #Donbas im großen Stil. Der bekannteste Fall ist der der abgeschossenen Boeing #MH17.

In jüngster Zeit haben 2 investigative Recherchen das Bild weiter vervollständigt:

Erstens ein Bericht über die Zugladungen voller Waffen und Munition, die Anfang 2015 während heftiger Kämpfe von Russland in den #Donbas gingen.

Und zweitens die Berichte darüber, wie der Kreml Geheimdienst-Killer nach #Tschechien & #Bulgarien schickte, um mit Bombenanschlägen und Attentaten #Waffenlieferungen an die #Ukraine zu verhindern.

I've previously made a short timeline of what we're told happened to the #Skripals on the day they were poisoned (Sunday, Mar 4 2018) using only official/MSM sources. This is an expanded version, again focused on the day of the poisoning. 1/43
Sources are [numbered] and listed at the end of the thread. I have added some sourced *comments and used brackets <where the exact point in the timeline is unclear from the sources>. 2/43
