  1. Telegram tidbits:

    "Russia’s FSB Opens Criminal Case Into Alleged Nord Stream Sabotage

    According to Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office, Moscow has suffered significant economic damage as a result of the alleged attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines.

    Russia’s security services have opened a criminal case suspecting “international terrorism” may be at play.

    "As part of the #NATO exercise Baltops, the 6th Fleet of the US Navy trained in the use of underwater drones in June. Where? Just on the coast of #Bornholm , i.e. right in the area of the #NordStream2 leaks. After that, in August 22 🇺🇸 & 🇬🇧 Navy trained the 🇺🇦 Navy in handling these drones."

  2. Why not try peace talks? Just asking....

  3. Last tidbit from telegram for now:

    "The Future of the World Order Being Decided Today" - Russian FM Lavrov

    🇷🇺's top diplomat has stressed it's either one dominant nation, or the route Moscow is taking to end a world of blackmail, intimidation and undesirables. Here's a recap of Sergey Lavrov's speech to the UNGA so far:

    📍Instead of dialogue & compromise, there is disinformation, crude dramatisation & provocation
    📍West undermines trust in intl justice
    📍Unipolar world serves "golden billion" at expense of Asia, Africa and Latin America - this is going to end
    📍Washington creates geopolitical process to retain its dominance - thinks it's "Lord God on Earth"
    📍We all remember Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya - far from US shores where hundreds of thousands died
    📍Name one country US entered by force and life became better
    📍Illegal sanctions are political blackmail - deny civilians essential goods. via @RT_India_official

  5. Another take on the pipeline sabotage. Who benefits.

    1. Bumper Phantom and Evets section coming up at (1234), followed by the ladies, then quiz.

  6. (The title of this article is all caps. It is just how it comes)


    "The military operation on Monday night which fired munitions to blow holes in the Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II pipelines on the Baltic Sea floor, near Bornholm Island, was executed by the Polish Navy and special forces.

    It was aided by the Danish and Swedish military; planned and coordinated with US intelligence and technical support; and approved by the Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

    The operation is a repeat of the Bornholm Bash operation of April 2021, which attempted to sabotage Russian vessels laying the gas pipes, but ended in ignominious retreat by the Polish forces. That was a direct attack on Russia. This time the attack is targeting the Germans, especially the business and union lobby and the East German voters, with a scheme to blame Moscow for the troubles they already have — and their troubles to come with winter.

    Morawiecki is bluffing. “It is a very strange coincidence,” he has announced, “that on the same day that the Baltic Gas Pipeline opens, someone is most likely committing an act of sabotage. This shows what means the Russians can resort to in order to destabilize Europe. They are to blame for the very high gas prices”. The truth bubbling up from the seabed at Bornholm is the opposite of what Morawiecki says."
