Having a good time with #NewYearsEve?
Let me ruin it with this map of the military situation in Eastern Europe, which shows us:

1) #Russia's massive military buildup vs. #Ukraine & #Europe: 33x brigades & 35x regiments. (@USarmy in total: 31x brigades & 7x regiments/groups)

2) If #Russia annexes #Belarus, then #Putin will forward deploy his tanks to #Poland's border & the doorstep of #Lithuania's capital #Vilnius. He will also threaten #Ukraine's capital #Kyiv from the #North and it will be easy for Russian troops to close the #Suwalki Gap.

3) #Poland's best brigades are based near #Germany. They must move East to protect #Warsaw & be an operational reserve to come to the aid of #Lithuania. Poland also needs more tanks; & modern attack helicopters, infantry fighting vehicles, fighters, guided missile artillery.

The alt-right is in an interesting quandary. They want 2 argue #projectbirmingham, a small social media disinfo experiment by a handful of Dem activists affected the outcome in Alabama Senate race ...but not social media disinfo efforts by Russia, a nation state in 2016? #psyops
Some background on #projectbirmingham .... if everything from the original NYT story is true about this domestic disinfo campaign against #RoyMoore then yes I am against this as much as I am against what Russia did in the 2016 elections. #infosec #ALsen
NEW: This is a strong denial from the New Knowledge CEO Jonathan Morgan, including the part about the creation of fake Cyrillic Russian bots ... so someone has some explaining to do #ProjectBirmingham #infosec

1. Pendant la grande terreur stalinienne, 1500 personnes ont été exécutées par jour pendant presque un an et demi. Cette période a commencé avec les premiers procès de Moscou du début de l’année 1937.
2. Au début, la grande terreur frappa d’abord la nomenklatura communiste, la vieille garde révolutionnaire qui avait servi l’Etat soviétique au début des années 20. Puis la grande terreur se généralisa à l’ensemble de la population soviétique.
3. Une décision du PolitBuro de juillet 1937 à destination du NKVD demanda une répression des « éléments anti-soviétiques » et des « ennemis du peuple » avec des objectifs chiffrés.

Bombshell directly relevant to #Maidan in #Ukraine: Ex-president & 3 other leaders of 1989 #Romania 'revolution' are charged with crimes against humanity for using disinformation & diversion to provoke #FalseFlag mass killings to legitimize their power…
Prosecution charges state that these & other leaders of the new Romanian government provoked mass killings of their own supporters by their other supporters by using diversions that Ceausescu security services snipers & other loyalists were doing killings…

All 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia FSB in #KerchStrait declare themselves "prisoners of war." They await trial in Moscow. #Russia's outrageous open attack on #Ukraine in int'l waters off #Crimea is a HUGE int'l incident. Barely a blip in US press.…
Reminder THREAD on Russia's recent attack on Ukraine—ramming, shooting & seizing ships & sailors in int'l waters. Its overtness shows a dangerously brazen & newly emboldened Putin. I bet Trump's meek response to such a major attack played a big role in Mattis' decision to resign.
Yes, Trump's Syria withdrawal was the last straw for Mattis. But Mattis' bold remarks & acts re Russia attacking Ukraine in Kerch Strait take on new significance given his resignation. Mattis condemned Putin as someone "we simply can't trust" & likely expected Trump to do same.👇

2/ Speaking 1st: Hendrik Möbus. Founder of band Absurd. What's not noted? He's a neo-Nazi & convicted murderer (as a juvenile). Broke parole in 1998 for giving a Hitler salute. Fled to US, hid with William Luther Pierce, National Alliance head & author of The Turner Diaries
3/ Möbus is giving a lecture on Baron Roman von Ungern-Sternberg, this apparent "symbol of European Reconquista" who, during the Russian Civil War, acted as an independent warlord who took control of Mongolia on 1921....

#Russia's state TV sets out to disprove the Kremlin's involvement in the #YellowVests protests by asserting that Russian oligarch Konstantin Malofeev is "not linked to the government" and bringing on Xavier Moreau— the founder of the Kremlin's propaganda outlet in #France. ©️
Moreau says he is proud to be a citizen of the greatest country in the world [he is a dual citizen of France and Russia] takes the flag of "DPR" [Russia's fake "republic" in #Ukraine] out of his pocket, says he wouldn't mind if the Kremlin sent him money [then adds it's a joke].

"Yellow vests" with DNR group flag in Paris… via @Kyruer #Ukraine
Coverage of Russia Today, Ruptly, Sputnik, Russia 1 and other Russian propaganda outlets are devoted to these protests in France, providing them solid coverage.

Ok so let's start analyzing a bit what could happen tomorrow. All the docs, images and videos are previously published by #GiletsJaunes protesters in #France (#Paris, #Nice and other cities).
One of the first things I noticed is that many #GiletsJaunes will be in #Paris tomorrow to protest #Macron's presidency.
People here have different political opinions and sometimes they started arguing on Telegram channels. Sometimes they even threaten each other.
Despite small quarrels between few members, #GiletsJaunes' admins are pretty organized (or at least they look so). Some useful maps and schemes are shared with members.

Color me impressed by that Trump head-fake on cancelling his meeting w Putin. But, as my Moscow colleagues explain, the Kremlin is teeing up a meeting that serves Russia's interests. Who's confident that this White House has done likewise? 1/…
Kremlin wants to let bygones to be bygones--ie no need to re-litigate 2016 election or harp on what Russia's doing in #Ukraine. "Putin recently said that Trump might well be reelected in 2020, and that Trump still wants to stabilize U.S. relations with Russia." @DmitriTrenin 2/
Putin loves the fact that Trump, not him, will take the blame for killing the INF Treaty. "The fact that the United States pulled out of the treaty first gives Moscow a psychological and tactical advantage." @DmitriTrenin 3/

WATCH: @TeamCavuto , @FoxNews 4pm EST. I join with the latest on #Russia, #Ukraine, and the mounting tension over their escalating conflict.

#RussiaUkraine #russia #maritime #foxnews…
Russia seized the Ukraine boat in #internationalwaters, not in the #SeaOfAsov or the #StraightOfKerch. This is a violation of international #maritimelaw. This is also an #actofwar and a very serious situation.

#RussiaUkraine #russia #ukraine #maritime
The U.S. government & @realDonaldTrump must take a very firm position on this and trade action immediately. Russia will push this situation to the limit and then back away with the gains they h ave achieved. There must be a heavy penalty.

The United States expresses its deep concern over the incident in the Black Sea that occurred November 25 as Ukrainian vessels attempted to transit through the Kerch Strait.
Reports that Russian vessels rammed and fired on the Ukrainian ships, injuring Ukrainian crewmen, before seizing three vessels, represent a dangerous escalation and a violation of international law.
