1. It seems that #Russia has found another opportunity to circumvent #EU and #US #sanctions.
Which one? - mass purchase of tankers. Over the past six months, 240 vessels have been sold in the world,⬇️
@SecBlinken @POTUS
@RishiSunak @AndrzejDuda
2. and all of them have unknown owners. And this is already the largest shadow fleet in the history of shipping.
#Russia is buying 25 to 35 large tankers every month to increase the number of ships it can carry to bypass #sanctions.⬇️
#RussiaIsATerroristState #SanctionsRussia Image
3. The shadow fleet of the country already reaches 600 tankers, which is 10% of the world volume of vessels of this class, - #CNN

Tankers carrying Russian oil are divided into two categories: "gray" and "dark" ships.

The "grey" ships were mainly sold by #European⬇️
4. owners to firms in the #MiddleEast and #Asia, while the "dark" corbals belong to #Iranian and #Venezuelan companies that have joined the transportation of #RussianOil.

With the help of the shadow fleet, Russian oil companies can lower the cost of oil for the Russian budget.

1.❗️ #Russia bypassing sanctions receives key technologies for the war in #Ukraine through third countries, #Bloomberg.

According to the publication, Russian imports in general have largely returned to pre-war levels in 2020, and an analysis of trade⬇️
2. data suggests that modern chips and integrated circuits produced in the #EU and other allied countries are being supplied to #Russia via third countries such as #Turkey, #UAE and #Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan is a key example. In 2022, the country exported⬇️
3. $3.7 million worth of advanced semiconductors to #Russia, up from just $12,000 the year before the war.

In the period from 2017 to 2021, the #RussianFederation annually bought advanced chips and integrated circuits for an average of 163 million dollars from the #EU,⬇️ Image

1.❗️Attention, fake!

A fake British intelligence report is now circulating all over the telegram, which allegedly says that Putin is trying to persuade #Ukraine and the West to negotiate on the terms of the withdrawal of Russian troops from the #Kherson and #Zaporizhzhia ⬇️ ImageImage
2. regions in exchange for #Crimea. At the same time, the report allegedly says that the Russian General Staff has enough resources to completely capture the #Donetsk and #Luhansk regions. Thus, the fake report promotes a narrative favorable to the Kremlin about leaving the war⬇️
3. with the occupation of Ukrainian territories.

Why it's fake is very simple.

1. The text is written with errors. The city of Zaporozhye (#Zaporizhzhia) is twice written differently - in Ukrainian and Russian transliteration - Zaporizhzhia and Zaporozhye.⬇️

1. In #Russia, they decided to respond to the visits of the Ukrainian command to the front - and pretended that Shoigu had personally appeared at the front. Namely, in the command post of the troops.
On the right, the destroyed building, against the background of which Shoigu⬇️
2. appeared, bears little resemblance to a control post. Inside, too, everything speaks of a hastily put together decoration: camouflage netting on the walls, a bunch of tables, hanging campaign posters, scattered colored markers and mineral water in a glass (maybe vodka?🤣).⬇️ Image
3. And of course, orders to "heroes of special operations". An interesting moment - one of the awardees says that she is happy to receive the award from the hands of Shoigu:⬇️

1. In #Moscow per day:
▪️A family of businessmen-realtors in a rented apartment - Pavel and Maria Sorokin was killed. The bodies of the dead show signs of violent death. Remarkably, Evgeny Chichvarkin's mother was killed in the same apartment in 2010.⬇️
2.▪️An employee of the Gamaleya Center and the developer of the Sputnik V vaccine Andrey Botikov was killed. He was strangled with a belt by a 29-year-old "guest" after an alleged quarrel with a scientist. The "guest" was detained and admitted his guilt during the interrogation. ImageImage
3. Is this already a return to the gangster 90s or not yet?

MARCH 3, 2023

The hit of the new $400 million #US military aid package for #Ukraine: #AVLB armored bridgelayers.
For forcing river4s during the offensive - that's it. The exact number is not called.

Well, besides, the package contains standard ammunition for artillery and #HIMARS.

3. Bridgelayers from the new aid package from the #US, this is #AVLB.
Good vehicles for a quick crossing during the development of our offensive. It is logical and expected, because dozens of new mechanized and assault ⬇️
