Don't blame me, I voted for Johnson(L) in 2016.

Truth is dangerous... especially when it challenges those in power.

Russian state NTV’s news have a story that Denmark is very Russophobic and as a country allegedly obsessed by unfounded and “hysterical” fears of Russian aggression.
"The big ear and eye" of Copenhagen: the authorities of Denmark are building an espionage tower to watch over Russia.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNJn0H6BpbE&feature=youtu.be&t=641
LOL:)
Journalists at the Danish radio station Radio24Syv, who watched the news item after it had been broadcast in an NTV news programme, smelled that something was not right with the interviews NTV had made with Danish politicians and local people on the island.
Had NTV perhaps made use of the tradition on Russian TV of dubbing interviews in order to change what the interviewees had actually said?
https://euvsdisinfo.eu/ntv-goes-to-denmark-a-story-about-backfire/
“My statement in the Russian version of the programme does not correspond with the statement I gave them. I’m left with a feeling of fake news, misuse and maybe even a deliberately wrong translation”, MP Nick Hækkerup, a former Defence Minister.
“The programme is one big manipulation filled with lies. The interview took place under the condition that our quotes were to be used in a meaningful way and our statements be clearly explained. This did not happen. The Russian audience clearly are not being allowed to know why we are scared of Putin’s aggressive and unpredictable politics”, MP Mogens Lykketoft, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and former President of the UN General Assembly.LOL
“I can tell from the translation that I have been quoted saying things I have never said, that’s for certain. They’re welcome to come back here so we can talk about it”, Michael Møller, a local museum owner on the island of Bornholm.

So Russian troops have been fighting in Syria, Reuters - Exclusive - Russian civilians helping Assad use military base back home: witnesses

MOLKINO, Russia (Reuters) - The Kremlin says it has nothing to do with Russian civilians fighting in Syria but on three recent occasions groups of men flying in from Damascus headed straight to a defence ministry base in Molkino, Reuters reporters witnessed.

Molkino in southwestern Russia is where the Russian 10th Special Forces Brigade is based, according to information on the Kremlin website.

The destination of the Russians arriving from Syria provides rare evidence of a covert Russian mission in Syria beyond the air strikes, training of Syrian forces and small numbers of special forces troops acknowledged by Moscow.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Feb. 14 Russians may be in Syria but “they are not part of the armed forces of the Russian Federation”.
Of course not.
The Wagner Group is however. It's a Russian paramilitary organisation “not part of the armed forces of the Russian Federation”.
And perhaps some volunteers from the Russian army on "leave" visiting Syria and Ukriane.
Simple Russian logic.
. Some have described it as a private military company (or a private military contracting agency), whose contractors have reportedly taken part in various conflicts, including operations in the Syrian Civil War on the side of the Syrian government as well as, from 2014 until 2015, in the War in Donbass in Ukraine aiding the separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wagner_Group
The Wagner Group have a training base in Krasnodar not far from Crimea and Molkino is a village not far from there.

Russian and an American are talking:
A - We have a freedom of speech, so we can go to the White House and start shouting that "insert American presidents name here" is a moron and nothing will happen.
R - We don't have that but we can go to the Red Square and shout that "insert American presidents name here" is a moron and nothing will happen either.

Blin!
Floating NUCLEAR PLANT labelled a ‘dangerous experiment’ and "floating Chernobyl" by campaigners launches in Russia.
It will be towed through the Baltic Sea this weekend and pass outside the coast of Sweden.

According to Rolf Lindahl at Greenpeace, it is not as worrying about the Swedish part of the data that no nuclear fuel is on board. But the organization is still critical of plans for a floating nuclear power plant in the Arctic.
"The problem is the continuing distance from Murmansk and then the problem of having a nuclear reactor in the Arctic. A floating nuclear power station in such a fragile environment makes it difficult to intervene if an accident would happen, "says Rolf Lindahl.

True.
The first nuclear powered ship was the submarine Nautilus from the US.
But those ships have only a small nuclear reactor that if a disaster will happen it's manageable.
A nuclear plant is however very different.
I remember the Chernobyl disaster very well!
Blin:( 70,000 reindeers in Sweden had to be slaughtered because of that!

No worries according to ROSATOM...
http://www.rosatom.ru/en/press-centre/news/the-world-s-only-floating-power-unit-akademik-lomonosov-takes-the-sea/
Nuclear Thermal Power Plant (FNPP) and is of a new class of power sources on the basis of Russian technologies of nuclear shipbuilding.
The FNPP is designed with the great margin of safety that exceeds all possible threats and makes nuclear reactors invincible for tsunamis and other natural disasters. In addition, the nuclear processes at the floating power unit meet all requirements of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and do not pose any threat to the environment.
What could possibly go wrong... ?

In inauguration speech, Vladimir Putin declares he wants to create a “Russia for Russians.”
As the joke goes, a list of those Russians will be provided later.
To be fair, he also wants to create an America for Russians.
"Is this Truth?"
"No, it is Pravda."
