Moti Nissani -- The Mystery of the 14 Dead Russian Officials: November 2015-August 2017

The Mystery of the 14 Dead Russian Officials: November 2015-August 2017

Curious patterns present perplexing questions
In the past 22 months, at least 14 Russian functionaries were murdered or unexpectedly died:
  1. November 5, 2015: Mikhail Lesin, 57, a senior adviser to Putin and founder of the popular counter-propaganda media company RT, was killed in Washington, DC, according to one source, by a blunt weapon (his death was originally blamed on a heart attack).  “After a year-long investigation, Washington’s chief medical examiner and federal authorities released a joint statement saying he died of blunt-force trauma to his head sustained in his hotel room, induced by falls amid acute ethanol intoxication.”  So, it took them one year to decide that this death was nothing more than a drunken Russian accidentally killing himself!
  2. May 2016: Andrei Vorobiev, 56, Russian charge d’affaires in Ukraine, died, allegedly from a stroke.
  3. September 2016: While driving alone in the president’s official car, Vladimir Putin’s favorite chauffeur was killed in a head-on collision with a vehicle that crossed over from the opposite side of the road. “Known as MK, the chauffeur had been employed as an official government driver for more than 40 years.” According to one source, “such an audacious attempt on the life of President Putin could ‘only be coordinated by an inside group of foreign secret service agents.’”
  4. November 8, 2016: Sergei Krivov, 63head of security affairs of the Russian Consulate in New York, was found dead “with multiple face and head trauma,” according to the initial NY Police Department report.  Later, a spokesperson for the medical examiner’s office called it a “natural death.”
  5. December 19, 2016: Andrei Karlov, Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey,  62, was assassinated by a Turkish police officer while delivering a speech at a photo exhibit in Ankara.  Putin felt that this murder was “clearly a provocation aimed at undermining the improvement and normalization of Russian-Turkish relations, as well as undermining the peace process in Syria.”  The Turkish president concurred: “Both Turkey and Russia have the will not to be deceived by this false flag attack.”  Ankara’s Mayor linked US-based preacher and CIA front man, Fethullah Gulen “to the cold-blooded murder of Andrei Karlov, who was shot five times in the back at an art gallery.”  A Russian Senator and a Putin ally said it could be ISIS, Kurdish Army, or, most likely, the secret services of a NATO country.  A day later, a Deep State tabloid suggested another reason: This murder could precipitate a Russian attack on Turkey, which in turn could lead to World War III.
  6. December 19, 2016:  Peter Polshikov56, a Putin aide, a member of the Ministry of Defense, and a Latin Americaspecialist, was shot dead in his Moscow apartment. The gun was found under the bathroom sink but the circumstances of the death continued to be under investigation.  According to another source, Polshikov was shot dead in his apartment in what appears to be a murder staged to look as a suicide.
  7. December 26, 2016: Oleg Erovinkin, age 60 or 61, ex-KGB chiefwas found dead in Moscow in the back of his car. Erovinkin also was an aide to former deputy prime minister Igor Sechin, who now heads state-owned petrol conglomerate Rosneft.
  8. December 27, 2016: Skrylnikov, a Russian diplomat, was found dead in Kazakhstan.  His sudden death was attributed to a heart attack.
  9. January 9, 2017: Andrei Malanin, 55, Russia’s Consul to Greece, was found dead in his Athens apartmentMalanin served during a time of improving relations between Greece and Russia, following the Deep State’s deliberate impoverishment of the Greek people.  A Greek police official said there was “no evidence of a break-in.” The cause of death needed further investigation, according to the AFP news agency.
  10. January 14, 2017, Vladimir Dedushkin, Russian Ambassador to Yemen , died in the capital Sanaa.  The initial report claiming that he was shot was subsequently retracted.
  11. January 27, 2017: Alexander Kadakin, 67, Russia’s Ambassador to India, died in New Delhi after a brief illness.
  12. February 20, 2017: Vitaly Churkin. 64, Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations, died in New York City. Churkin was rushed to the hospital from his office. “He had a history of heart problems and also suffered from leukaemia.”  “Chief editor of Echo Moscow radio station Alexei Venediktov said that Vitaly Churkin had diplomatic immunity, which means that his autopsy contradicted the norms of diplomacy. Venediktov, with reference to American press, also said that there was a medical report that said that Churkin had been poisoned by the food that he took at midnight.”
  13. March 20, 2017: Vladimir Evdokimov, 52, top official of Russia’s space agencywas found dead in his Moscow prison cell (where he was being questioned on charges of embezzlement). Investigators found two stab wounds on Evdokimov’s body, but no determination had been made of whether they were self-inflicted.  (Note: I shall set aside this case, because it involves a suspected criminal sitting in a “pre-trial detention center,” accused of taking part in a $3 million fraud scheme.  “He is by no means the only space industry official to have been locked up for fraud, and in fact, over the past several years, the Russian space program as a whole has been hit by scandal after scandal: Rockets have been doomed by shoddy work and efforts to build a new launch site in the Far East have been plagued by corruption.”  Until now, however “no one caught up in the industry’s rampant corruption problem has died.”  The most likely explanation in this case is contract killing—a punishment for cooperating with investigators.  “Evdokimov’s foes feared he could tell their names to the investigation and uncover their criminal schemes.”)
  14. August 23, 2017. Mirgayas M. Shirinsky, 62, Russian Ambassador to Sudan, drowned while swimming in the pool of his official residence in Khartoum.  The drowning, allegedly, was caused by a “serious heart seizure.”  Shirinsky suffered from high blood pressure.  Sudanese police have ruled out the possibility of an assassination attempt.
  15. August 25, 2017Mukhmad Askhabov61, a Communist Party member of Chechnya’s parliament, was gunned down by unidentified attackers.

Russia announces Syrian terrorists plan chemical false flag on day UN slams US for killing Syrian civilians

Russia announces Syrian terrorists plan chemical false flag on day UN slams US for killing Syrian civilians

Maria Zakharova delivered the announce. She correctly predicted such a false flag attack in June of this year.


Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has stated that a Syrian terrorist group Shabab al-Sunnah is preparing a chemical weapons attack which it plans to blame on the Syrian government.
Shabab al-Sunnah is a fledgling splinter group associated with the larger terrorist organisation FSA.
Today, Zakharova stated,
We have received worrying information. According to Russia’s information, the Shabab al-Sunnah armed group has access to chemical weapons”.
She continued,
“The militia plan to use it on one of the settlements in the Daraa province and then to accuse government forces of chemical attacks against civilians”.
Zakharova previously accurately predicated a false flag chemical attack by an FSA affiliated group in June. On the 29th of June, 2017, Zakharova stated that terrorists were planning such an attack in the Damascus region.
Sure enough, on the 2nd of July, such a false flag did occur, complete with a well crafted propaganda video that Zakharova described in the following way,
“As we warned a few days ago, a media propaganda campaign on the ‘use of chemical weapons by Damascus’ has begun. There will be more of such videos, and they will be of different quality – either low-grade, like this one or of Hollywood level. There will be many fakes, the planned campaign is a massive one”.
This all comes as the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein said the following of the US attacks on Syrian civilians in the following way,
“Given the extremely high number of reports of civilian casualties this month and the intensity of the air strikes on Raqqa, coupled with ISIL’s (aka ISIS) use of civilians as human shields, I am deeply concerned that civilians – who should be protected at all times – are paying an unacceptable price and that forces involved in battling ISIL are losing sight of the ultimate goal of this battle”.
A chemical weapons false flag attack could distract the attention of global observers from the continued attacks on civilians that the US has been promulgating in eastern Syria. According to some witnesses these attacks are deliberate.
There exists a danger that FSA terrorists who in the past had been heavily armed and funded by the CIA, may use a false flag chemical attack to change the course of a war that Syria is winning, all the while obfuscating from view, the reports of US war crimes against civilians which the UN has just condemned.

Lawrence Wittner -- Why Is There So Little Protest Against Recent Threats Of Nuclear War?

Why Is There So Little Protest Against Recent Threats Of Nuclear War?
Our tempered response to this looming catastrophe is deeply unsettling.
04/22/2017 05:59 pm ET 
Updated Apr 23, 2017
In recent weeks, the people of the world have been treated to yet another display of the kind of nuclear insanity that has broken out periodically ever since 1945 and the dawn of the nuclear era.
On April 11th, Donald Trump, irked by North Korea’s continued tests of nuclear weapons and missiles, tweeted that “North Korea is looking for trouble.” If China does not “help,” then “we will solve the problem without them.” North Korean leader Kim Jong Unresponded by announcing that, in the event of a U.S. military attack, his country would not scruple at launching a nuclear strike at U.S. forces. In turn, Trump declared: “We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. We have the best military people on earth.”
During the following days, the governments of both nuclear-armed nations escalated their threats. Dispatched to South Korea, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence declared that “the era of strategic patience is over,” and warned: “All options are on the table.” Not to be outdone, North Korea’s deputy representative to the United Nations told a press conference that “thermonuclear war may break out at any moment.” Any missile or nuclear strike by the United States would be responded to “in kind.” Several days later, the North Korean government warned of a “super-mighty preemptive strike” that would reduce U.S. military forces in South Korea and on the U.S. mainland “to ashes.” The United States and its allies, said the official statement, “should not mess with us.”

MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. Moscow has offered Washington various options to overcome the situation with the anti-Russian sanctions before suggesting that it should cut down the number of its employees at the American diplomatic mission in Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"We’ve been offering various ways of out this situation to the United States for many months, more than half a year," she said.
"We gave half a year to the American side, and this wasn’t silent provision of opportunities, but constant attempts to involve [the US] in a dialogue. There were a few rounds of corresponding expert talks on how to overcome this situation," the diplomat added.
About the sanctions
In late December 2016, then-Barack Obama administration introduced sanctions against Russia, declaring 35 employees of the Russian Embassy in Washington and Consulate General in San Francisco persona non grata and closing two Russian diplomatic compounds in the states of New York and Maryland. All Russian staff was banned from entering these facilities.

RÉSEAU VOLTAIRE -- The Myth Of The Moderate Kurdish Rebel by Sarah Abed


The Myth Of The Moderate Kurdish Rebel

In this third and final part of her inquiry into the claim to create a Kurdish state outside the historic Kurdish territories and to the detriment of the Arab and Christian populations, Sarah Abed draws a terrible observation. This article may seem to be partial to some of our readers. Yet all reported items are accurate and can be easily verified.

Kurds and Assyrians: a tumultuous past and present

Much of what the Kurds claim as their own unique culture is actually borrowed from older cultures, such as the Assyrians, Armenians and Suryoye. In fact, much if not all of the land in Eastern Turkey that the Kurds claim as their own once belonged to the Armenians. It is hardly surprising, then, that the Kurds assisted in the Turkish genocide of Assyrians [1] and the 1915 genocide of Armenians [2].

Also known as “Shato du Seyfo,” or the “Year of the Sword, ” this genocide targeted Christians in the Ottoman Empire during World War I, mainly in 1915 [3]. The size of the Assyrian population was reduced by as much as 75 percent as a result.

RÉSEAU VOLTAIRE -- How CIA Spies Access India’s Biometric Aadhaar Database

How CIA Spies Access India’s Biometric Aadhaar Database

The Indian Supreme Court has just recognized the constitutional inviolability of the right to privacy. It will have to decide soon on the legality of the generalization of biometric identification. On the same day, Wikileaks published documents on the CIA’s tools. Using the data already available, the United States has illegally collected biometric informations from more than one billion Indians. What has long been told by fictional works has become a reality: we will all be immediately identifiable by the CIA.
JPEG - 36.1 kb
Today WikiLeaks published secret documents from the ExpressLane project of the CIA [1]. These documents show one of the cyber operations the CIA conducts against liaison services — which includes among many others the National Security Agency (NSA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The OTS (Office of Technical Services), a branch within the CIA [2], has a biometric collection system that is provided to liaison services around the world — with the expectation for sharing of the biometric takes collected on the systems. But this ‘voluntary sharing’ obviously does not work or is considered insufficient by the CIA, because ExpressLane is a covert information collection tool that is used by the CIA to secretly exfiltrate data collections from such systems provided to liaison services.

Russia SLAMS the Kiev regime’s appalling violation of Russian journalist Anna Kurbatova’s human rights

Anna Kurbatova’s condition remains unknown.
August 30, 2017, 20:01
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has strongly criticized the Kiev regime’s kidnapping and illegal detention of Russian civilian journalist Anna Kurbatova.
Kurbatova was forcibly abducted by the SBU, the regime’s security service in a mafia style incident in central Kiev. She is currently being held and will soon be forcibly deported from the country. Her current condition remains unknown.
The statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry reads as follows,
“The detention in Kiev on August 30 of Channel One journalist Anna Kurbatova and her forcible deportation to Russia is clearly not an accidental incident, but a deliberate provocation initiated by the Ukrainian law enforcement and national radicals.

We are directing the attention of international human rights organisations and other agencies which are supposed to protect freedom and independence of the media to the continuing outrage in Ukraine. We hope for their reaction and practical steps with regard to the excesses of the Kiev authorities”.

CONFIRMADO: A jornalista russa raptada, Anna Kurbatova, está detida pelo regime ucraniano - para ser deportada à força

A sua situação permanece desconhecida.
30 de Agosto de 2017, 18: 00
O Ministério do Interior do regime de Kiev confirmou que raptou a jornalista russa, Anna Kurbatova e, actualmente, está a detê-la num local não revelado, perto de Kiev.
Kurbatova, que trabalha para o Canal Um da Rússia, deve ser expulsa à força da Ucrânia e proibida de tornar a entrar dnesse país, durante três anos. O jornalista britânico, Graham Phillips, enfrentou uma proibição semelhante quando foi preso pelas forças do regime em Donbass, em 2014. Essa proibição expirou este ano, embora não esteja claro se ele tenciona continuar a trabalhar no território do regime.
De acordo com Olena Gitlyanska, porta-voz do serviço de segurança do regime SBU,
“A propagandista russa, Anna Kurbatova, será devolvida à força, à Rússia.
Neste momento, os documentos necessários estão a ser processados ​​para ser efectuada a sua deportação oficial. Acontecerá o mesmo a quem se permitir desacreditar a Ucrânia “.
O regime recusou-se a dar pormenores sobre a condição de Kurbatova, apesar da Reuters e Sputnik terem inquirido.
A Embaixada da Rússia em Kiev, levantou a questão ao regime na esperança de obter uma resolução para a situação ilegal de reféns.
No início de hoje, uma equipa a trabalhar para TV  Rússia – 24, foi impedida de trabalhar pelas forças de regime, enquanto fazia uma reportagem perto de Donetsk.
