New FSB base opens way for more operations in Arctic

"The Russian security service starts year 2019 with a new base for its coast guard vessels in Murmansk" 🤔…
Dana Rohrabacher says he's moving to Maine... 🧐🤔

The North-eastern most part of the US 🧭…
Just marking some stuff....

His staffer went to explanation (9/19/16)
Iceland and Murmansk…
Rohrabacher staffer went to Norway, no explanation (2/10/18):
Norway and Murmansk:…
Just some weird stuff, wanted to make note of it. Could be nothing.
"The new base in Murmansk is part of a bigger upgrade of the FSB’s operational capacities in the Arctic. A similar new base was opened in Arkhangelsk in 2017.

In 2016, Putin signed a bill that gives the FSB the full prerogatives for law enforcement on the Northern Sea Route. "
"...the FSB has autonomously taken action against ships operating along the RU Arctic coast. In 2017 a powerful new coast guard vessel...was included in the fleet of the Murmansk border svc. Another new vessel, an ice-breaking Purga-Class ship, is expected to be included shortly"
"The new powers in the Arctic comes as shipping on the Northern Sea Route is on rapid increase. In 2018, about 18 million tons of goods was transported on the route, and that figure is expected to increase to 24 million tons in 2019."

That ice melts up there - Putin is happy.
"Mikhail Karpov, Deputy Head of the FSB’s West Arctic border div, made clear as he on 12/26/18 officially opened the new coast guard base.

"We will spend more time in the Arctic, at sea, to protect the legitimate interests of Russia in the Arctic zone"…
Rex Tillerson, Exxon, Putin, and the Arctic shelf:

Exxon Mobil Seeks U.S. Sanctions Waiver for Oil Project in Russia…
And so Rexy had to go 👋🏽

Tillerson did a Russia deal for Exxon. He refused to attempt one for Trump…
Dana signaling he thought he had Rex in his pocket? Perhaps.

James Baker - who repped Gazprom - sent Tillerson to Trump:

Tillerson gave SCL (thus Cambridge Analytica) a State Dept contract:

Tillerson spurned funding to push back on Russian propaganda:

Rex is gone of course, so let's back up:

Remember when Dana Rohrabacher thought he was going to be Secretary of State?

I guess I'm kinda done here, just pointing out some weird stuff.

Kinda like: Dana Rohrabacher moving as close as he can to the Arctic region/Russia/Murmansk, without actually leaving the U.S.

Also, he's a climate denier, and he wanted Rex's job. TTFN! 😊✌🏽
Nord Stream 2 pipeline is interesting:…
"Denmark readies law to block Nord Stream 2"…
Stasi 😳
