Don't belive anything until Putin and Kremlin denies.
And by now you ought to know that Russia has left Syria some months ago.
The mission was a complete success:)

Translation for Western spies :
tri Putin (three Putin)
dva Putin (two Putin)
raz Putin (one Putin) Rasputin

Blin!

That is an utter lie from Kiselyov and from the Russian State TV Rossiya 1.
And top Kremlin propagandist, Dmitry Kiselyov, says the President of Lithuania, Dalia GrybauskaitÄ—, is "unmarried and happy to be pressured by Trump."
In the written transcript, the word "unmarried" is omitted.

Kiselyov is a C*ka Bl*at!

Money, money, money, it's so funny, in a Russian world...
Yesterday, all businessmen from the US sanction list lost more than $ 12 billion of their aggregate wealth, the ruble collapsed and the Russian stock market collapsed.
The victims, perhaps, will meet and Russian President Vladimir Putin, said his spokesman Dmitry Peskov. In Putin's schedule there is as yet no meeting with businessmen caught under US sanctions, however, it is impossible to exclude such possibility.
Vedomosti learned how support can be provided. The authorities are discussing a project to create two territories in Russia with a special regime and signs of offshore - on the island of Oktyabrsky in Kaliningrad and on a Russian Far East island, four federal officials said, as well as the person who participated in the discussion of such a project.
A representative of the Government of Kaliningrad confirmed the discussion of the idea.
Those wishing to return money to Russia will be able to do this quickly and without taxes, officials say: the project allows foreign structures to be transferred to Russia from other countries, including offshore ones, retaining their legal form. Companies will be able to transfer as soon as possible the capital entirely to Russia while maintaining the usual legal and financial infrastructure without paying taxes on foreign income, a representative of the Ministry of Economic Development confirmed.

I thought the Oktyabrsky Island was located in the Baltic Sea outside Kaliningrad.
It's not.
Oktyabrsky Island (Остров Октябрьский; Russian for "October [Revolution] Island") is an island in the Pregolya River in Kaliningrad, capital of Kaliningrad Oblast, an exclave of Russia. The island, covering about 10 square kilometres (3.9 sq mi), is immediately east (upriver) of the city's historic centre. When Kaliningrad was the German Königsberg, the island was called Lomse (Old Prussian for "swamps") and largely used for grazing, except for the district of Lomse at its western end. Since the 2010s the island has been extensively redeveloped around the Kaliningrad Stadium, being constructed for the 2018 FIFA World Cup due to be held in Russia.

It would be like making Gamla Stan "Old town", that also is a small island in Stockholm, an offshore region.
But why not:)
Gamla Stan.

Russia's state TV: Yury Shvytkin, Deputy head of the Russian State Duma Defense Committee, says that potential resettlement of the Skripals in the U.S. or Canada constitutes an abduction of Russian citizens. They fail to mention that Sergei Skripal has British citizenship.

A Swedish reporter, Bert Sundström, from SVT met Margarita Simonyan, RT's chief editor for an interview.
She wondered why we from the west always report only negative news from Russia.
And she gave a list of of examples of Russia's positive news about Sweden.
"Why don't you do same?" she asked.
"Well, I have. For instance about the improvement of goat cheese production in Russia that benefit the agriculture economics", Bert said.
Margarita's response was "Marvelous. Russian goats" :)

Reuters - Lawmakers publish evidence that Cambridge Analytica work helped Brexit group
Nigel Oakes, founder of SCL Group, the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, said the consultancy was lined up to do work with Leave.EU in the event that it was designated as the official campaign to leave the European Union, according to transcripts of interviews published by a parliamentary committee.


The lawmakers were also critical of Wigmore and Oakes for speaking in admiring terms about Nazi propaganda techniques, and said there were also questions about Cambridge Analytica’s closeness with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

How many people really change their beliefs because of political commercials and all the rest.

Or do they watch and read what they already believe and cheer a confirmation of their already held beliefs.

You claim to be the historian. How many changed their minds in Germany during the 1930's.

What is the difference from attacking manufacturing, communications and a nations power grid with explosives?
None since cyber attacks does the same to manufacturing, communications and nations power grids.
Russian government-sponsored hackers are compromising the key hardware of government and business computer networks like routers and firewalls, giving them virtual control of data flows.
The router hacking operation has targeted both government and private sector groups, and the key providers of network infrastructure and internet services serving them.
Taking over a router virtually would give a hacker the ability to manipulate, divert or stop any data from going through it.
In an operation like an electric power plant, the hacker could shut down the service or physically damage a plant.

RAND's report on “Truth Decay,” which analyses the erosion of respect for facts and evidence in political life and public discourse, takes the view that people's inherent cognitive biases have a deciding role in what facts they choose to believe. For instance, humans tend to hold onto prior beliefs even when presented with information that clearly demonstrates that these beliefs are incorrect or misguided. In fact, when confronted with corrective information, some people can become even more convinced of their original belief and less willing to consider alternatives. This might offer one explanation for why “fake news” tends to survive and why some aspects of disinformation could prove difficult to overcome.

Brits, beware of gorgeous Russian girls – that is the message conveyed by an intelligence expert, who fears that their spectacular beauty represents a “sex threat” and might distract footballers from this summer’s FIFA World Cup, held in Russia.
https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/946427/russia-fifa-world-cup-2018-england-players-honey-trap-vladimir-putin
Professor Anthony Glees, director of the University of Buckingham’s Centre for Security and Intelligence alleging that Russian women could seduce top English players under the cover of darkness in order to blackmail them before a big game.
“I know England don’t have much hope [at winning the World Cup] but if there’s some way to scupper England’s chances even more, through food poisoning, or honey traps with leading players and gorgeous Russian girls, they will do it.
It's consistent with a country where the dividing line between state and supporters appears to many observers to have disappeared altogether.
I’m not hysterical about this, I accept none of this is a done deal and I know some people are less averse to risk than I am. But I’m saying they could do it, these are the sort of things that could happen,” Glees told the media outlet.
Anthony Glees seems to suffer from a severe "Russophobia":)

While the relations between Moscow and Washington remain strained amid tensions in the Middle East and in Europe, it appears that interactions between Russian and US diplomats at the United Nations follow a different dynamic.
