Permalink US helicopters circled over Nordstream for weeks

More and more disturbing details are coming to light in connection with the bombing of the Nordstream pipeline in the Baltic Sea | The Arabic news channel Al Mayadeen reported that weeks before the attack, US helicopters were circling over the sea area where the fatal explosions took place on September 26 with a striking frequency.  This can be reconstructed using the flight data from the online service “Flightradar24”. According to this, at the beginning of September, just under a month before the attack, a US Navy Sikorsky MH-60R “Seahawk” helicopter was circling for hours on several consecutive days – especially on September 1, 2 and 3 later over the area of the damaged natural gas pipelines not far from the island of Bornholm.  On September 10 and 19, US helicopters also flew over Nordstream 1, and on the nights between September 22 and 25, several helicopters stayed for hours over the site of later explosions. The helicopters that were in the air on the night of September 22 to 23 and 25 to 26 left particularly confusing flight tracks.  On the latter night, a multi-purpose MH-60R “Strike Hawk” helicopter circled for nine hours over a sea area about 250 kilometers from Bornholm, from about 5:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Central European Time. Among other things, the “Strike Hawk” can fight underwater targets.

Permalink Kremlin to declare Ukraine regions 'formal integration' into Russia on Friday

Kremlin says it will formalize integration into Russia of four Ukrainian regions that have voted overwhelmingly in favor of joining the Russian Federation.

Speaking on Thursday, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the process is slated to take place at Kremlin on Friday, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin is to deliver a "major" address to mark the occasion. Peskov identified the regions in question as Donetsk and Luhansk, which are located in eastern Ukraine, as well as Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south of the ex-Soviet republic.  Later on Thursday, Putin signed decrees paving the way for Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to be formally incorporated into Russia territory.  The referendums were held across the foursome regions over five days earlier this month.The plebiscites harked back to a similar vote that was held in 2014, during which Ukraine's Crimea peninsula voted to join Russia.Together the five regions make up some 20 percent of Ukraine's soil.Kiev and its Western allies, though, describe the votes as "sham."


Permalink Putin names orchestrator of Nord Stream blasts

Sanctioning Russia is no longer enough for the US, which has now switched to sabotage, the president claimed | The US orchestrated the blasts on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, which delivered Russian natural gas to Germany, because they “obviously” benefit from it, President Vladimir Putin said on Friday.  Putin accused Washington of trying to pressure the EU into banning Russian supplies to “completely get their hands on the European market.”

💬 “But the sanctions are no longer enough for the Anglo-Saxons,” he said, using Russian shorthand for the US-UK transatlantic alliance. “They have turned to sabotage – it’s unbelievable, but it’s a fact – by organizing the explosions on the Nord Stream international gas pipelines,” the president stated.   “They de facto began the destruction of the common European energy infrastructure. It’s obvious to everyone who benefits from it. Those who benefit are the ones who have done it.

Maria Zakharova also stressed that the region was crammed with NATO infrastructure | NATO member countries conducted drills in July using deep-sea equipment near the Nord Streams leaks site, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday. "In July, there were NATO drills with the use of deep-sea equipment in the area of the island of Bornholm," she said. Zakharova also stressed that the region was crammed with NATO infrastructure.

On Tuesday, the Nord Stream AG company reported that three threads of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 offshore gas pipelines had suffered unprecedented damage on Monday. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that Moscow was "deeply concerned about the news" and did not rule out that the pipelines’ operation could have been disrupted by an act of sabotage. Swedish seismologists later reported that two explosions had been recorded along the Nord Stream pipelines on Monday.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen slammed the incidents as sabotage, pointing out that any deliberate disruption of the European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response". On Thursday, the Swedish Coast Guard discovered another gas leak from the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines.

Permalink Swedish Coast Guard Detected Fourth Nord Stream Gas Leak on Tuesday, Reports Say

A fourth leak has been found on the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, according to the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

The leak in question is located on Nord Stream 2 in the vicinity of those known before. "Two of these four leaks are located in the Swedish economic zone. There has been a larger gas release of approximately 900 meters in diameter and a smaller one of approximately 200 meters in diameter," Jenny Larsson of the Coast Guard's command center told the newspaper. Admittedly, the Coast Guard has been aware of the four leaks since Tuesday and cannot say why the information didn't get out until now. Most recently on Wednesday evening, Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson spoke about "three gas leaks" on Nord Stream 1 and 2.

Permalink Russia to Summon UN Security Council

Moscow will request a meeting over suspected “sabotage” against the Nord Stream pipeline | Moscow wishes to call an emergency UN Security Council session over the “provocations” at the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday in a Telegram post. Both pipelines were severely damaged earlier this week in what many suspect was a deliberate attack.

Russian, American, and Swedish officials all said that the damage might have been the result of a targeted attack on pipeline infrastructure. No suspects behind the incident have officially been named, although in a tweet former Polish foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski “thanked” Washington for destroying the pipeline. Moscow, which called the incident a “terrorist attack," also named the US as a potential suspect.

Polish President Andrzej Duda demanded last month that the pipeline be “totally scrapped.” US President Joe Biden warned in early February, before Russia began its military operation in Ukraine, that if Moscow acts against Kiev, “there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.” A journalist asked him to clarify what exactly he meant, to which Biden responded: “I promise you, we will be able to do that.”

Permalink U.S. State Department Issues DIRE Warning: Americans should "Leave Russia Immediately"

The U.S. State Department has issued what is already being described as "the most dire warning ever seen" to Americans in Russia: Leave Immediately.  Specifically, the State Department told Americans 💬 "U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia and those residing or travelling in Russia should depart Russia immediately..."

Hal Turner Comment: This is the type of warning the State Department issues about countries where the U.S. is going to war.  And the State Department has good cause to think we're going to war, because in large measure, it is the State Department that is CAUSING IT!  Just yesterday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Ukraine "Ukraine can use western weapons against territories seized by Russia." The territories he seems to be referring to are the areas of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporozhye, which concluded Public Referendums yesterday, and voted overwhelmingly to leave Ukraine and become part of Russia.  Think about that for a moment: The people in those areas VOTED, and Blinken says the US "will not recognize . . ." that vote. As if he has a choice . . .


Permalink Four Regions Vote to Join Russia: What’s Next?

The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (LPR and DPR) along with Kherson Region and part of Zaporozhye Region in southern Ukraine have voted to join Russia in referendums that were held between September 23 and 27 In Lugansk, more than 98% of voters have supported the idea to join Russia, official figures show with all the ballots counted. Donetsk has shown similar results with more than 99% of voters supporting the move. Both Zaporozhye and Kherson regions have process all the ballots by late Tuesday, with 93% and 87% of voters respectively backing the split from Ukraine and reunification with Russia.

The process of integrating new regions into Russia may take some time as it requires the approval of the country’s parliament and the president. But Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Friday that he was “convinced it will be fast enough.”  Under the Russian constitution and the federal law on the accession of new constituent members, the procedure includes several steps. Once the regions willing to become part of the Russian Federation submit their proposals to Moscow, the president should inform parliament and the government on the matter, Senator Konstantin Kosachev explained in a Telegram post last week. If a political agreement on the accession is reached, “draft international treaties on the admission of foreign states or parts of them” to Russia should be developed, Kosachev, the vice speaker of the upper house of parliament, said. These agreements regulate issues such as the name and status of new territories, citizenship, succession, the functioning of public authorities, the operation of legislation, and so forth.

Permalink US Praised for Nord Stream Explosion

“Thank you USA,” said Poland’s former defense and foreign minister Sikorski | While the US, Russia and most European governments reserved judgment as to who might be behind Monday’s explosion that damaged both Nord Stream pipelines and cut off Germany from Russian gas, former Polish minister and member of the European Parliament Radoslaw Sikorski had no such qualms.

BIDEN on February 7, 2022: 💬 "If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the -- the border of Ukraine again, then there will be -- there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2," Biden said during the press conference with Scholz, who did not go as far as Biden, but insisted the U.S. and Germany remain "absolutely united." Pressed on how he can commit to that given that Nord Stream 2 is under German control, Biden doubled down, saying, "We will -- I promise you -- we will be able to do it."

💬 “Thank you USA,” Sikorski tweeted on Tuesday, alongside a photo of the massive gas leak in the waters of the Baltic Sea. Both pipelines were severely damaged off the coast of the Danish island of Bornholm, in what everyone is now calling a deliberate act.  Sikorski later tweeted, in Polish, that damage to Nord Stream means that Russia will have to “talk to the countries controlling the Brotherhood and Yamal gas pipelines, Ukraine and Poland” if it wishes to continue delivering gas to Europe. “Good work,” he concluded.

Permalink The US Shuts Off Europe’s Lights

Harry Vox | Less than 24 hours after Nord Stream 2 abruptly went down, Nord Stream 1 has been sabotaged as well. | These are clear and obvious acts of war, not only against Russia, but against Western Europe [also]. And not only is the Unidentified State Actor the primary suspect, with the means and the motivation to destroy the pipelines, but the Commander-in-Chief of the US military publicly threatened to do what has apparently been done.  Gonzalo Lira is absolutely right. This is the modern equivalent of Cortez burning his ships upon arrival in the New World. Occam’s Razor strongly suggests that the global imperialists headquartered in the USA are attempting to prevent the Europeans from surrendering to Russia and thereby freeing themselves from the satanic New World Order.  “Now I realize that the Americans will stop at nothing to destroy all of their allies. Because what’s really happening is that the global American empire is collapsing and they are lashing out in all directions.”  At this point, every nation on Earth would have to be crazy to cooperate with the US government in any way, much less comply with its demands. This destruction of Europe’s energy lifelines underlines the truth of Henry Kissinger’s famous aphorism: “To be an enemy of the US is dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal.”

Permalink Russia Responds To America’s Plan To Win WW III

Eric Zuesse | On 3 May 2017, I headlined “America’s Top Scientists Confirm: U.S. Goal Now Is to Conquer Russia”, and linked to a report that had recently been issued by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, about “revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increase in capability is astonishing — boosting the overall killing power of existing US ballistic missile forces by a factor of roughly three — and it creates exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.”

Russia’s response to this challenge had actually started even earlier, by no later than U.S. President Barack Obama’s having grabbed control over the Government of Ukraine in February 2014. (And in this video is shown that video’s full smoking gun of his coup, and here is the transcript and explanation of that crucial smoking gun.) Ukraine is the country that has the nearest foreign border to The Kremlin in Moscow — only 353 miles from Moscow, a mere five minutes of missile-flight-time, away, from the Ukrainian city of Sumy. Ukraine’s having the border with the closest proximity to Russia’s central command (The Kremlin) is the main reason why Obama grabbed it (in accord with his Nuclear-Primacy policies).  Compare that 353 miles to the 1,131 miles from Washington DC that Cuba is and that terrified JFK so much during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis as to have made him willing to launch nuclear war against the Soviet Union if Khrushchev wouldn’t remove the missile sites that the Soviet Union was attempting to build in Cuba.

💬 As I understand it, today’s meeting was motivated by a striving to discuss the issue of “impunity” in Ukraine. I consider this to be timely. This term fully reflects what has been taking place in that country since 2014. At that time, nationalist radical forces, overt Russophobes and neo-Nazis came to power there because of an armed coup, with direct support from the Western countries. Immediately after this, they embarked on a path of lawlessness and complete neglect for basic human rights and freedoms – the right to life, freedom of speech, access to information, freedom of expression, freedom of conscience and the use of a native tongue. The crimes committed in Maidan Square in February 2014 have gone unpunished to this day.  In the process, people ignore the fact that for over eight years the Ukrainian army and militants from nationalist groups have been killing Donbass residents with impunity only because they refused to recognise the outcome of the criminal, bloody, anti-constitutional coup in Kiev and decided to uphold their rights as guaranteed by Ukraine’s constitution, including the right to freely use their native Russian tongue.

Permalink Nato Intel Classified as "Secret" Being Given to Ukraine

💬 Military documents Classified as "SECRET" from NATO, have been revealed publicly, and they show the extent to which NATO is actively assisting Ukraine with targeting info to KILL Russian troops. The release of these documents proves that NATO is, in fact, an actual facilitator of combat against Russia in Ukraine. What NATO is doing is actually CAUSING Russian troops to die.

💬 The documents below were secured by criminal computer hackers working against Ukraine. The hacker group calls themselves "BEREGINI." I have had no contact with anyone from that group and I did not solicit these documents, or participate in any of the efforts which got them. The Hackers posted the documents publicly on the Internet. That's where I got them. Below, you will see screen shots of SOME what the Hackers made public. For the most part, they are GPS targeting coordinates, with Identifying categories listing what type of Russian military hardware is at each location, so Ukraine can attack them and destroy or kill them.

Ukraine is using NATO weapons to kill innocent civilians in the Donbass (Eva Bartlett -RT.com) | On Monday, Ukraine slaughtered 16 civilians, including two children, with 155mm NATO shells, according to the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin. The projectiles hit two adjacent neighborhoods, decimating residential and commercial areas – including a market that had previously suffered fatal attacks.  Scenes of death are nothing new for residents and reporters here in Donetsk, which is intermittently the target of Ukrainian attacks, like the one that hit its central region on August 4, killing six people, including an 11-year-old ballerina, her grandmother, and her ballet teacher.  But the carnage on Monday was worse than anything I’ve seen in my months of reporting here. Chunks of flesh littered the street – part of a hand, a foot, an ear. Someone had put a dead man’s phone on his stomach. It was ringing, the cheery ringtone incongruous with his lifeless body and the scenes and stench of death around him.  For most people, the concept of war is a distant one, and deaths are normalized by media reporting the numbers of victims and destroyed buildings – so most who hear of civilians being killed don’t really understand what a scene like this looks or smells like.  For the locals, it is also normalized, in its own way, after over eight years of Ukrainian attacks – a tragically grotesque kind of normality, where the post-bombing routine starts soon after the last explosions die down.
