    Back to the O.P.

    How dangerous is Vladimir Putin well he has revealed what many knew.

    To all democracies , very dangerous, if he was an engine part he would be replaced

    To the elderly sick , babies of Ukraine possibly fatal as the snows arrive in unheated ruins.

    Also add the brave internal opposition, refuseniks and abused demonstrators

    It is also a tragedy for the oft forgotten bereaved, the brave defenders, many middle aged men with no prior military background, the weary conscripts and the refugees/abducted./deported.

    It is huge cost to post Covid19 European economy and of course a window display for modern military materiel, strategy and tactics.

    In many ways the critics are much like Pattaya

    “What contemptible scoundrel stole the cork from my lunch?”

    The Russian Ministry of the Interior has put the well-known lawyer Ilya Novikov out for a wanted manhunt. Criminal proceedings had been initiated against Novikov, the state news agency Ria Novosti reported, without going into detail about the specific allegations.

    Here is the thing Sabangman, all these clown bloggers and their comments that you are posting here on TD would already be locked up in your beloved country RuSSia.
    Do you think you can comprehend this fairly simple piece of information?

    This thread is about Putin. Not Neo-cons, or the Thai military.

    Suggest you start another thread if that kind of obfuscation floats yer boat.

    Maybe something you find amusing, instead of posting laughing smileys everywhere. Putin and his war is no laughing matter.

    Did Putin Really Fall And Soil Himself? Here Are Claims About His Health

    Here’s the poop on the latest rumors about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s health. The hashtag #PutinPoopedHimself began trending on Twitter after General SVR’s Telegram channel asserted that Putin had fallen down five steps on a staircase, landing on his coccyx. Not Cossacks, but coccyx, which is the medical term for tailbone. Apparently, the tailbone didn’t end there, though. According to General SVR, this fall caused Putin to “defecate involuntarily,” as opposed to defecate voluntarily on the stairs. The image of someone falling down stairs and then having some fecal release may seem rather different from the picture of Putin riding shirtless on a horse that emerged over a decade ago in 2009. However, Putin himself hasn’t been putting forth statements about any recent fall or his coccyx. So the question is whether the Telegram story is actually legitimate or simply a pile of you-know-what.


    Naturally, relying on Twitter to vet information and determine whether it is accurate would be a bit like relying on a trash bag to serve as a parachute. This has been particularly the case ever since billionaire Elon Musk acquired Twitter, reportedly got rid of large chunks of its fact-checking staff, has been touting a “free speech” say-anything approach, and has tried to sell blue Twitter verification check marks to anyone who would buy them, as I reported for Forbes. Thus, you can’t assume that something is true simply because a Twitter hashtag has been trending:

    How dangerous is Vladimir Putin?-e469a823-fd15-44eb-8394-11f4a33fdf4e-jpeg


    Otherwise, you’d have to assume that #TrumpWasRightAboutEverything, right? So in order to determine the veracity of this latest claim about Putin’s health, you’ve got to examine the source and determine not only how reliable this source may be from a medical standpoint but also how much actual, concrete evidence the source offers.


    So what about this General SVR? How reliable is this source? Just because the General says “Yes” does that mean you should say “Yes” too? Well, this certainly isn’t the first claim that the General SVR Telegram channel has made about Putin’s health. For example, in May 2022, the General SVR claimed that Putin had undergone surgery for some type of cancer diagnosis, as economist and author Anders Åslund had tweeted back then:

    How dangerous is Vladimir Putin?-582a95bb-6e68-402d-bfa0-221973d82f6d-jpeg


    Wait, hold your Putin horses, did Åslund include the words “appears credible” in his tweet above without really elaborating as to why and without knowing or revealing who General SVR really is? The operator of the General SVR channel is supposedly a former Russian Foreign Intelligence Service official who happens to have access to Putin and his staff with an emphasis on the word “supposedly.” The operator of this channel remains anonymous and unconfirmed, meaning that it could still be anyone ranging from someone in the Kremlin to that barista at your local coffee shop who can never get your latte order quite right to your grandmother who happens to have some free time and an Internet connection.

    And just because someone doesn’t look well on a video doesn’t mean that you can assume any type of specific medical diagnosis. Sure there are some very obvious medical problems such as when someone is actively bleeding or someone’s arm just fell off. When the latter happens on a video, you can probably say with a fair amount of certainty, “Gee, it looks like his arm just fell off,” assuming that David Blaine or some other magician wasn’t involved. However, it’s not possible to establish most other types of diagnoses from afar without conducting a real physical exam and associated tests and actually talking to the patient.


    This hasn’t prevented a number of random would-be doctors and would-not-be doctors from trying to diagnose Putin remotely simply by analyzing photos and videos of the Russian leader. They’ve pointed out markings on his hand that could potentially, possibly, perhaps, maybe look like the insertion point for an intravenous (IV) line and situations where his feet and legs supposedly appeared to be shaking such as the following shown by a video from The Sun:







    Such speculation has fed to an ongoing toilet bowl swirl of rumors about Putin being very ill, with claims that he is suffering from a variety of ailments ranging from pancreatic cancer to Parkinson’s Disease. It’s been a toilet bowl because to date there hasn’t been much in terms of concrete medical evidence. For example, while a leg and foot shake could perhaps, maybe, potentially, possibly be consistent with a movement disorder, it could also represent a number of other things. For all you know, Putin could have simply been nervous or grooving to a song in his head such as “It’s Raining Men” sung by The Weather Girls, the Diana Ross song “I’m Coming Out”, Erasure’s “A Little Respect”, or perhaps “YMCA” by the Village People.


    Similarly, there could be a number of explanations for what may appear to be IV line insertion markings on Putin’s hands. They could be simple injuries. For example, Putin could have been doing jazz hands and accidentally hit a life-sized statue of Elton John, Barbara Streisand, or RuPaul, resulting in some bruising. Even if the markings were from an IV line, there are a number of reasons why he could have gotten an IV line including dehydration from either not consuming enough liquids to consuming too many alcoholic drinks such as vodka sodas.


    During an Aspen Institute Security Forum several months ago, U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director William Burns did say that there’s been a lot of rumors about Putin’s health and “as far as we can tell, he’s entirely too healthy,” as you can see in this CNN news segment:



    The Kremlin has continued to deny any suggestions that Putin is not well. But you’ve gotta take anything that the Kremlin says about Putin with an ushanka full of salt as well. The words “open” and “transparent” may not be the first words that you think of when you think of Putin’s leadership, especially after he had ordered the brutal invasion of Ukraine earlier this year. Although the Kremlin did admit that Russia was conducting a “special military operation” outside its border when Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, don’t expect the Kremlin to hold a press conference about any defecation operations that may have occurred outside the borders of a toilet.


    This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to automatically poo-poo all claims about anyone falling down stairs and defecating until you’ve actually seen the poo. You don’t have to always say, “I want the poo and nothing but the poo.” It does mean, however, that you should probably wait until you get confirmation from someone who is not anonymous and is instead a reliable—preferably medical—source before you believe anything said about Putin’s health. Anytime anyone anonymous tells you something, you’ve got to take it with a diaper-full of salt. Listening to an anonymous social media account can be like listening to graffiti on a bathroom stall. And you never know who may be putting something out there about Putin.

    No-one cares. The Russian military will kill Putin before he brings a rain of hell on them.

    In fact that's probably why he's shitting himself.

    The frightened war criminal Putin jails yet another opposition leader for daring to speak the truth.

    Russian opposition leader Ilya Yashin was convicted on Friday of spreading “fake news” about the massacre of civilians in Ukraine, with a Moscow court sentencing him to eight years and six months in prison.

    Vatican apologizes to Russia – Moscow

    The Pope claimed last month that two ethnic groups living in Russia were particularly disposed to battlefield cruelty

    "The Vatican has issued a formal apology to Russia for derogatory remarks made by Pope Francis last month about some ethnic groups in the country, according to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
    The ministry received the message on Thursday from Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. It expressed the Holy See’s respect for “all peoples of Russia, their dignity, faith and culture, just like all other nations and peoples of the world,” Zakharova told a press briefing.

    “The capacity to recognize one’s mistakes is becoming more rare in international relations today. This situation shows that, behind the Vatican’s calls for dialogue, there is a knack for having such a dialogue and hearing the other side,”
    the Russian diplomat noted. She added that Moscow considered the incident to be over.

    Pope Francis made a negative generalized assessment of the character of Buryats and Chechens, two of the many ethnic groups living in Russia, in an interview published in late November. He described them as “of Russia but… not of the Russian tradition” and claimed that such people were “the cruelest” of the Russian troops in Ukraine.

    Moscow responded by issuing a formal note of protest to the Vatican, while many Russian officials, including Zakharova, expressed outrage about the remarks.

    “This is no longer Russophobia, it’s a perversion on a level I can’t even name,”
    the spokeswoman said at the time.

    The Vatican and Pope Francis personally offered mediation in the conflict in Ukraine. The pontiff previously angered Kiev by publicly recognizing that NATO’s expansion in Europe was a contributing factor in the conflict, which is part of Moscow’s position on the origin of the violent standoff with Kiev and its foreign backers."

    EU parliament chief pledges corruption ‘clampdown’

    Roberta Metsola vows a tough response to a revelations allegedly involving Qatari money .

    "European Parliament President Roberta Metsola has pledged to do all it takes to make sure the legislature is “not for sale” to foreign actors, amid a corruption scandal allegedly involving FIFA 2022 World Cup host nation Qatar.Four people, including an EU parliament vice president Eva Kaili, her partner, and two NGO heads were detained in Belgium last week on suspicion of taking bribes from a foreign nation. The country in question has not been officially named, but an informed source has told the media that it was Qatar, which had been seeking to influence EU policy-making.

    Police have also posted a picture of €1.5 million in cash they seized in raids targeting the homes of the politicians from Friday to Monday.

    The affair has dealt “a blow to democracy,” Metsola said on Thursday. “It takes years to build trust but just a moment to bring them down.”

    “There are... too many informal groupings that are potentially more amenable to influence. Too many organizations whose transparency of funding is not clear. We will clamp down on everything,” she vowed.

    According to the parliament’s president, this time “there will be no impunity, there will be no sweeping under the carpet, there will be no business as usual.”

    “I will do everything I can” to make sure that the European parliament “is clean, that is transparent, and that is not for sale to foreign actors that seek to undermine us,” Metsola said.

    A Belgian justice ministry spokesperson said on Thursday the graft probe was “a major case” on which its investigators had been working “for more than a year, in collaboration with foreign intelligence services, to list suspicions of corruption of MEPs by different countries.”

    “We’ve been too naïve... for far too long” about the shady operations of foreign powers in Brussels, the spokesperson acknowledged.

    Kaili, who denies any wrongdoing, her partner and parliamentary assistant Federico Giorgi, and founder of Fight Impunity NGO Pier Antonio Panzeri currently remain in custody. The head of the No Peace Without Justice group, Niccolo Figa-Talamanca, will be released, but will have to wear an electronic ankle tag, prosecutors said."

    Canada to reintroduce sanctions on Nord Stream turbines

    Ottawa plans to revoke a waiver that exempted the pipeline parts for Russia’s oil and gas industry.

    "Canada is revoking the waiver that facilitated the repair of turbines in Montreal for Russia’s Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, and their subsequent return to Germany.

    The move was announced late on Wednesday in a joint statement by Foreign Minister Melanie Joly and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson.The decision was made after consultations with Ukraine, Germany and other European states, according to the statement.

    “Canada is making this decision recognizing that the circumstances around granting the waiver have changed. It no longer serves its intended purpose,” it read.

    Nord Stream 1, owned by Russian state energy major Gazprom, faced technical difficulties earlier this year when turbines for its Portovaya gas compression station were caught up in the Western sanctions war against Moscow.

    Manufactured by German Siemens Energy AG, the turbines needed regular maintenance at the company’s plant in Montreal, where they became stranded due to Canada’s sanctions on Russia’s energy industry. After a request from Germany, which feared a shortage of gas if the pipeline was shut down, Canada exempted the turbines from restrictions. They were allowed to be sent to Germany with further delivery to Russia.

    However, Gazprom then refused to take them back without a legal guarantee that they could be repaired in the future."
