We are reworking how we're processing donations to maximize the $ that Meduza receives. Instead of directly signing up to this webinar via our payment platform, please send a 200 EUR or USD donation to Meduza directly. Forward us the receipt and we'll send you webinar info!
Please see more information on the webinar (time, topics, etc.) and direct instructions on this receipt-forwarding thing here: events.eventzilla.net/e/bellingcat-o…
We're refunding the payments for the 14 (!) people who have registered, so that they can directly donate the money to Meduza. They'll get the most money out of it as possible, without worrying about extra VAT/service fees. If you already signed up, we sent you an email just now.
So far, we have 3500 EUR raised (assuming everyone redirects their payments that we're refunding back to a Meduza donation). Hopefully we can hit 5000!

Support Meduza here, and make sure you note the monthly / one-time option:

The latest from Respekt, @the_ins_ru and Bellingcat, revealing more details into the GRU's operations in Europe, evidencing how there were linked to the conflict in Ukraine bellingcat.com/news/uk-and-eu…
We previously identified more team members of the GRU team responsible for the Vrbetice warehouse explosion in Czechia, and that it included the most senior leadership of the unit.
Two open questions remain the subject of speculation by the press: First, whether the sabotage operation in Czechia in 2014 is linked to the poisoning of the arms manufacturer Emilian Gebrev in 2015 bellingcat.com/news/uk-and-eu…

India’s coronavirus crisis continues to escalate as it becomes one of the most severely hit countries in the world to date.

In desperation, many are turning to social media sites such as Twitter to find medical resources bellingcat.com/news/2021/04/2…
These cries for help are poignant and heartbreaking.

But they also provide a window of observation into the speed of escalation of the crisis and the dangers Covid-19 still poses.

Hashtags such as #IndiaNeedsOxygen & #COVIDEmergency2021 have become commonplace
During March, there were on average only five tweets per day (excluding retweets) containing the keywords “delhi” and “urgent”.

By April 21, this had increased to over 400, with a new request for help sent every 24 seconds late in the evening on April 22.

A (re)discovered series of posts seemingly authored by Q shed a little more light on the figure behind the notorious conspiracy. Largely unnoticed, they have not entered "official" aggregators of "Q drops" - as true believers call Q's prophecies.

How do we know they share the same author as Q's "canonical" posts? These "lost drops" include large sections of text which are identical to both previous and subsequent Q drops, in several cases sharing a unique user ID with the latter.
Compare Lost drop A (left) with canonical drop 4 (right). These apocryphal "Q drops" were made shortly after the first verified Q drop, on October 28, 2017. The conspiracy was in its infancy - what would an impostor have to gain?
