Fresh "Kremlin" from Monocle 24: The Briefing
"So this is very much linked in to, for example, Chechnya in the Caucasus, even Qatar, which is you might say in the heart of Russia 500 kilometers east of Moscow, where there have been some sort of calls for separatism over the last 30 years since the breakup of the Soviet Union. And so the threat has the Kremlin sees it is if they were to give back any part of the Russian Federation. So say they gave the islands back to Japan. Well, that then strengthens the case for chechens to say, well, we should be independent for 2000 in Tatarstan to say we should be independent, even if we're in the middle of Russia. So that is crucial. And I think we can say also under the Putin regime with the strengthening of the feeling of nationalism, suddenly anything like this. Anything any talk of giving up any part of Russia has become much sharper and therefore it is brought into the public consciousness, even though to go back to your original point, most Russians would think, well, pieces of rock out in the Pacific Ocean. I wonder, it's interesting the way you frame it like that, because in a way that's a sort of part of the ideology if you like of a united federal Russia, if you like. It's a sort of idea of a kind of Russian around the world sort of idea in a sense, and a extending its influence. We started the week with Richard Moore, the MI 6 chief warning of the threat that Russia poses. And also about provocation talking about these kind of provocations, do sending these missiles now is the time in significant do you think? It's partially significant, which I know is not a very satisfactory answer. They've been talking about it since the summer. They were talking about beefing up the military presence on the islands back in July and August. So it's not unexpected. So that's why it's partially true. But of course, now coming at the time when the most of the western world is looking cautiously at Russian troop build up around Ukraine and thinking and the Ukrainian president last week saying that he was fearful of a Russian attack. It's a way that Putin often does of playing the game of go, a far eastern Chinese game, ancient game, where unlike chess, people say old Putin's favorite game is chess. No, no, it's goal. And in goal, you can suddenly start playing in a completely different part of the board. You've engaged your opponent in one part of the board, and suddenly you do something completely to knock him off his stride elsewhere. And if you imagine Russia was a huge great goal board, then while everyone was talking about Ukraine, up, well, let's do something that'll get the west talking and a bit and worried about what's happening in the far east. Because of course, it doesn't just worry the Japanese, which clearly it does. I mean, it's very close to Japan, but it's in Asia Pacific. It's in Asia Pacific, and of course therefore it worries America as well. And we just had yesterday, of course, Anthony blinken, the Secretary of State for the U.S. warning that in a sense, Russia has made plans for a large scale attack on Ukraine. There is clearly a fear that there's a pill open that they're looking west and east basically. Absolutely. And so it is in that sense it is a typical Putin move to try and throw the west off balance.

Gregg Jarrett on Adam Schiff's Disgraceful Legacy
"Greg Gerry, you sent me a piece on Friday entitled Adam Schiff's disgraceful legacy. Right there, we heard him say the following. Anyone who lied to Christopher Steele. Or the FBI should be prosecuted. What about chairman of the intelligence committee of the House of Representatives who lied to America for four years about their having seen the quote incontrovertible evidence of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow? There are a lot of liars associated with the great Russia hoax and the ensuing witch hunt. Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, Igor steel source, I'd add James Comey to the list. But in my book, I wrote in the column, the most remorseless liar of all the flagrant huckster of hysteria over the Russia hoax is none other than Adam Schiff. Which Sean Hannity loves to call shifty shift. I mean, he is the most mendacious of them all. I mean, he is the top of the party not in terms of who lied the most and most often for four years. That's right. You know, he'd walk a mile for a camera shift did hundreds and hundreds of interviews with the stock up media. They didn't know a damn thing because they didn't bother to actually investigate any of the allegations or try to corroborate any of the dossier they simply took it as gospel as if it were scripture from Moses. You know, and so they are winning accessories the media. But they were played for fools. They were winning dupes. And at the hands of people, like Adam Schiff, who kept insisting over and over again, week after week year after year for years that he had in convertible evidence that Trump was a Russian asset who plotted with Putin in the bowels of the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election he said he had concrete evidence, absolute evidence, he'd seen it with his own eyes. We're just on the verge of the big reveal and he promised again and again, he was going to reveal it, but oh, you know, it's classified information right
Igor Danchenko, Analyst Who Worked With Christopher Steele on Trump Dossier, Charged in Durham Probe
"Well, perhaps the biggest news of the day is the actual arrest, not a subpoena not an indictment, the arrest by John Durham's special counsel of the key individual behind the so called Steele dossier, nobody, none better to analyze it than the legal and political analyst for Fox News. The author of the Russia hoax and witch hunt host of the brief podcast, Greg Jarrett, welcome back to America first. Hey, Sebastian, always creepy in with you. So tell us first, let's start at the beginning. Who is Igor danchenko? Well, he's the fabulist behind the discredited anti Trump CA. And he's indicted in charge with lying to the FBI not once. But 5 times on 5 different occasions way back in the infancy of president Trump's term back in 2017. The FBI knew that the dossier was phony. They knew that Christopher Steele was not credible who composed the dossier. They'd fired him for lying. And yet they used the dossier and then chanko is a pre-tax continue their probe of Donald Trump. And July, the 5 succor to continue the spy and it's really pretty stunning, then Czech who was not some mysterious Russian agent operating in the bowels of the Kremlin is Christopher Steele, the ex British spy led everyone to believe. No, the guys are researcher at a liberal think tank the brookings institution in Washington D.C. that at the time was run by a long time friend and ally as Hillary Clinton G what a coincidence. It was Clinton in her confederates who invented the Russia House, framed her opponent and disseminated the information and then chanko was key to it and it turns out not only when he was interviewed by the FBI did he debunk the whole thing, but in the process he lied about who his real sources were. Now we don't know through the indictment yet who those real sources were. I wouldn't be surprised if they were people closely connected to Hillary

"Let's speak to BBC Monitoring Vitaly Shevchenko. Welcome to Newsday. Tell me First of all, they weren't using his name. So it's such a major event that must be quite awkward. How are they referring to him? Quite awkward, and Russian politicians can be Unusual, if not to say strange, and this is Is one of the most bizarre things I've seen in almost 20 years of washing it. S so we have the country's most prominent politician, very vocal, very spoken. And yet top officials cannot bring themselves to utter his name to begin with. They tend not to raise the subject of a novel in the first place. But if they're asked by journalists, the The linguistic gymnastics are amazing. For example, President Putin has called him that gentleman or that character on DH. His spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, Um, ever since no violence reported poisoning, has been referring to him. As the Berlin Patient or the sick man off the Lynn. So why's this happening? What One of the most popular theories we've seen in the media is that the the Kremlin is reluctant to make a violent, more popular by mentioning him. Which the Kremlin has dismissed in the Kremlin officials are saying, Look, Putin is so popular, he does not need to worry about rivals. But Navalny's case illustrates very nicely Think how come Vladimir Putin ended up being Russia's most popular politician? By far the fact is that some of his critics and most prominent opponents have ended up poisoned or in exile or dead. And he really is their worst nightmare, isn't he? Because just a day ago? I mean, you know, we know that traces of another talk were found in his system have yet to discover exactly how they got their little fingers pointing at the Kremlin on DH. There he is in the German hospital, walking down a staircase. Amazing recovery, says he describes a clear path. To recovery. That's what he tweeted out, he says. It's already a clear path. Although a long one By the looks of things he is coming back. How are they going to deal with that? It was coming from his name. That's very true on DH. We've seen mention of his name in the media skyrocket because you can't report a major story without naming the main character on that nightmare that you mention it.

Sandra seemed lonely. Even though orangutans usually prefer to be solitary high in the trees activists worried Sandra's accommodations were inadequate. They sued Colton. Argentina is to rule on whether an allegedly depressed renting named Sandra is untitled. Too certain human rights after in two thousand fifteen a judge in Argentina made international news by declaring Sandra a non human person and sentient being with legal rights. Your person then her attorney and the days Gill Dominquez said the ruling would influence other cases and spread the idea that confinement. Violates violates separation animals rights since then a chimpanzee named Celia has also been declared a non human person in Argentina. A court in Columbia has recognized the legal rights of a bear named Joe. Joe That's surprising considering courts have only been here in cases like this for a few years says Matthew do you. Lebron of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. The animal law movement really grew out of the United States but the most remarkable progress we've seen has been outside of the United States. With things like the Sandra case and South America yet. Nothing changed for Sandra for years. She was still stuck in the zoo. We did not solicit having having her come here because I didn't think it was possible. Patti Reagan founded the Center for Great Apes and Florida. It has more than sixty orangutan and chimpanzee refugees from circuses casses or people's former pets including bubbles. Who belonged to Michael Jackson? We are the only Rangan sanctuary that is credited north and South America but Reagan. A new. It would be a huge process to meet. US requirements to get Sandra into the country. Still Sandra didn't have many options. Orangutans are highly endangered injured. Their forest habitats in Indonesia are disappearing and Sanford never lived in the wild plus.

Were simply saying that the world is changing outside of your courtroom and you may want to change with so far. American judges haven't been persuaded by Weiss's arguments. Kristen Stilt L. to is director of the Animal Law and Policy Program at Harvard Law. You almost get a sense. That judges are really looking for reasons not to do what he's asking one of the reasons which is well. They're just being transferred to another form of captivity. They're not being freely released. Judges make a different decision if public attitudes shifts. She says. And that's why other activists say Sandra is most important as a symbol. It care about Sandra. Why don't we care about all of them? Mariann Sullivan is a lecturer in animal. Law at Columbia Law School and Co host of the Animal Law. podcast she points out that these court cases only apply to individual animals animal's not animals as a class. Animals live and die in hidden factory farms and hidden laboratories. They're not going to court. So yeah we're not going GONNA solve this in the courts. People have to solve it in their hearts in their behavior and politically in passing laws. As for Sandra the arena ten for the first time in her life. No no one's watching.

This happens all the time for Navan and his people what is different this time. This isn't just another another rate. It seems to be a bigger crackdown on Kremlin opposition. Just the other day we saw one of Nirvana's close colleagues shipped off to a remote military base base in the Arctic and Russia does have a draft this colleague of Nevada. He's twenty three years old and well over the age of eighteen but he was forcibly conscripted. Did right I mean this place sounds a bit like a gulag not just a military base.

In the early morning in Moscow a journalists apartment was raided the newspaper. Novaya Gazeta says it was over her investigative work so lucy. Why is all of this happening? Well if you ask Alexei navalny he says it's over this but in me Mr Bush increases generosity by mission. It's a video that novell needs group. That's been been labelled foreign. Agents by the Kremlin by the way put out a couple years ago went viral and Russia macbook guzzle emotions thaw but but intercession has more than thirty million views and it's over corruption allegations against Russia's prime minister Dmitry Medvedev but this video came out a couple of years ago. So why is this. Crackdown happening now. If you look back to the summer we were seeing huge protests and that it was just over local city elections the Kremlin is thinking. Well if there were thousands of people taking to the streets over municipal bull elections what could happen in twenty twenty one during the parliamentary elections and so these crackdowns kind of give us a sense that the Kremlin is trying trying to silence opposition before it gets to a point of even larger protests and demonstrations the wills listening.

"With the Kremlin. What was most frustrating for me as a reporter about the script hall case was that? There was very little I could find out about the mechanism by which these sorts of attacks were carried out when these sorts of things happened. We are relying on western intelligence services. If they give us anything, we're relying on western law enforcement services. Normally, you get nothing but denials from the Kremlin, and what I was looking for is for somebody to explain to me, how these assassinations how these operations are carried out from the point of view of the people who are plotting them. You wanted to know from the other side how this all works. Correct. And so I went looking for cases that could help better explain how these sorts of assassinations and assassination attempts are carried out and that brought me to Ukraine, and why Ukraine a steady stream of anti-kremlin figures have been assassinated. On Kiev's streets. Mostly because there have been a number of assassinations in recent years a lot of them attributed to Russia. A former Russian lawmaker who defected to Ukraine in two thousand sixteen was shot dead outside a hotel in PF surveillance. Video appearing to show the assassination of a vocal critic of Russian president flood. Amir futon blondes just homes nearly a year off the investigative journalist. Shut him. It was killed in a car bomb. It mocked another dunk moment in the OPEL relationship between Russia and Ukraine. And so I talked to a source who had some knowledge about some of these cases. And one of the cases he mentioned was this assassination in an apartment building with a leg in far, western Ukraine, and this one immediately jumped out at me because it was so unlike all the other cases that I had been researching most of the assassinations that have occurred have involved high ranking officials or military figures journalists people it's out of say, you might. Expect to be targets of assassination. This case didn't seem to fit any of those patterns. The victim wasn't a well known political figure. He wasn't a journalist. He was an electrician at a jail. He was a nobody really. And so I was curious why anyone would want to kill him. Let alone the Russians and yet the Ukrainian officials insisted that Russia had something to do with this..

"We'll circle to the concerns in the nineteen eighties. And what this does is. It enhances accelerates increases the threat of nuclear warfare happening in Europe of Russia being able to target with this intermediate range capability most of Europe with nuclear weapons being able to basically hold them hostage. The counter to also if the US was to respond again with ground launched cruise missiles or ballistic missiles, really gets you into this destabilizing cycle. And I think that's actually the most important ramification that may happen here during this debate in the air. Eighties and this push for arms control. And one of the reasons why the Russians actually agree to eliminate this class of weapons was because of the threat that these cruise missiles caused to their command and control and that under normal exchange. You had twenty minutes to a half hour to respond with ground based systems US a NATO ground based systems in Europe, they cut the response time down to ten minutes, which actually lead which was the driver of the Russians putting in place just about a semi autonomous. They had considered an autonomous response system and put in a virtually Thomas response system, which was called dead hand was the nickname or perimeter. The system would allow automatic response. Yes. The Kremlin was not responding to lower ranking military officials and dead him having turned on it would it would give permission for this lower ranking official to assess that the command control had been knocked out and therefore to automatically respond. Dr Strangelove just exactly and what's interesting about it is it wasn't a deterrent system. The Soviets in our tell us about this. It was really an automatic responses just to assure leadership that they could respond to a US Europe attack. What's interesting about this is that this whole debate over the possibility of INF collapsing has actually led to discussion of perimeter system on the record in Russia. The former head of the strategic rocket forces from the nineteen nineties in an interview just a month ago said that. This arms race that were going into could actually leave us with only perimeter to defend ourselves, and he talked about perimeter still being functioning and having been upgraded. And you know, this is a if you add that with Vance's in artificial intelligence and the Russians thinking that they may be even closer to a more perfect system. You know, are they going to go to an autonomous response system? And this would be extremely destabilizing an nuclear world. Now sounds more like determinator. Yes. Yes. Potentially now in this situation where the Russians are deploying ground missiles one question, I have is does the United States need to for its own interests to also deploy ground based systems recently asked us to go back to where we began which is that this treaty, the treaty only bands ground-based ground lodged systems, it doesn't ban air launched or launched systems the United States. It would seem to me has the upper hand over the Russians in terms of both see launch. And air launched into media range missiles, or cruise missiles interesting is that needs to be kept in mind is part of the reason why I believe Russia's and Putin are deploying these systems really to threaten or bully. You are particularly the NATO countries the Baltics that are on their border. And so it's the bullying system to keep those countries in check and also keep them off balance. And in terms of US response what you get into here is a cycle of. Well, has our deterrence been undermined and we have already, and I think, you know, part of what's happened with the with the IMF treaty. Collapsing is actually showcasing how we have failed in developing a workable successful policy in dealing with Russia, and this is not just in the Trump administration. But I think basically since the end of the Bush administration when Russia I went into Georgia because they were concerned that Georgia might be joining NATO, and and started becoming more aggressive. I don't. I think we've been able to successfully put together or Russia policy on how to deal with Putin. And so what we've just seen in the nuclear posture review just this past year in terms of the US response to what it should be our nuclear posture in the changing dynamic, the global situation with rising powers and resurgent powers as well as mid level powers developing nuclear weapons, and and surging their their authority because of their nuclear weapons capability that the response to Russia's that you just can't respond with systems..

"That sounds familiar. We deal with that in the US GOP Madeira had the Venezuelan supreme court judicial body. That is not independent rule all of the powers of the national assembly be passed onto the court the court later reversed a decision few months later Madero called for elections for a new. Constitution assembly, which would assume the Leslie power, the opposition boycotted the election through all of this. Maneuvering the opposition controlled national assembly continue to meet regulator seek waste or store democratic order in Venezuela. So what you have in Venezuela is a constitutional crisis and the opposition is trying to work within the legal framework to push Madero out of power, but they're balling the constitution event as well. In order to do this and Madero himself is using heavy handed tactics here to shut down his opposition. And Furthermore, he has incredibly powerful allies with a Bismillah human rights records. And that includes of course, Russia and China and Russia extensively his bringing in literally troops on the ground into Venezuela to backup guy they've pumped billions of dollars into his government. So they don't wanna lose him. My instinct here is that Venezuela could potentially be another Syria. Rather than Ukraine crane being a rare example of successful revolution Syria was a revolution. And it's turned into one of the worst civil wars in modern history. So it's not looking good for Venezuela by any means. And obviously, the Trump regime is gonna find ways to profit from it because that's what they do. They have Elliot Abrams in there with a terrible track. Record. Of course, he was involved in the run contra affair than the US violent involvement in the Nicaragua. Like, it's not looking good at all for Venezuela. And when in doubt, go to SOS Venezuela read what they're posting there. And look through the news from the perspective of those who are going to suffer the most there's one thing that's interesting here, and you can see this with Ukraine to you know, you see the people that try to argue that the Trump administration is actually hard on Russia that they back Ukraine, and they give these like little examples of the Trump administration arming Ukraine or pseudo sanctioning. Russia as we've seen with guitar pasta. Those sanctions are not fully in acted. And we, of course know from Trump regularly prostrating himself to Putin that that's where his loyalties lie. And then so here, you have a conflict where stencil Trump and the Kremlin are on opposite sides there each backing opposite leaders see this with Ukraine, we kind of see this with Iran because Trump is a Russian asset. His loyalty is not to the United States to its safety security or anything like that. It is however very beneficial in some respects for there to be a proxy war in which case, you know, it is not actually the US versus Russia. It's Trump in collaboration with the Kremlin using the resources military of the United States to achieve kleptocratic goals in conjunction with the circle of elites that surrounds. Putin. Manipulating and exploiting terrible situation. Vulnerabilities in other countries. That's what I think maybe happening here, and it's going to be played up WWE style as if they're on opposite sides, but we really need to watch it through that lens and just think who exactly is benefiting here because we're kind of beyond nation states, we have actors we can't exactly define because Trump's allegiances not to the United States yet. He's it's president that is the brand new situation. And so we have to see follow the money. See where it goes see who's calling for certain policies there. It's not quite as cut and dry. We've already seen the entrance of other actors into this conflict like Turkey. I think all of this needs to be viewed through this realignment globally that we've been seeing since Trump took power this access of autocrats where you see Trump Saudi Arabia Putin Netanyahu. Aragon, although there's conflict there, you know, all these dictators, basically these corrupt people working together while he tries to alienate are traditional allies and on the face of it. This looks like we actually are doing for once what our allies in North America and in South America are doing backing the right guy. But because it's Trump to be cynical as to use commonsense. Like, they're not out for humanitarian reasons, they're not interested in resolving anything. They've got another agenda. And so I think it's right for people to be wary. And like, you I am very wary of where this is going because I can see all the different ways they can manipulate it..
