Danish Bill Proposes 12 Years in Prison for 'Pro-Russia' Opinion!
https://sputniknews.com/europe/201810131068853099-denmark-bill-pro-russia-jail-term/
LOL:) The Kremlin has become very paranoic.
The law proposal amendments are this.
https://www.ft.dk/samling/20171/almdel/REU/bilag/423/1938179.pdf
I § 108, stk. 1, ændres ”efterretningsvæsen” til: ”efterretningstjeneste”, og efter ”danske stats område,” indsættes: ”herunder ved udøvelse af påvirkningsvirksomhed med henblik på at påvirke beslutningstagning eller den almene meningsdannelse,”
I § 108, stk. 2, indsættes som 2. pkt.:
”Det samme gælder, hvis påvirkningsvirksomheden efter stk. 1 udøves i forbindelse med de valg og stemmeafgivninger, der er omfattet af § 116.
§ 2 Loven træder i kraft dagen efter bekendtgørelsen i Lovtidende.
§ 3 Loven gælder ikke for Færøerne og Grønland.
No mentioning of Russia at all or any state for that matter.
Only "foreign intelligence services" that could also include China, North Korea, "ISIS" and perhaps some other states.
However the background is of course Russia.
It is likely that Russian influential campaigns will pose an increasing threat to Denmark, and Denmark will with no or very short notice be affected by Russian influence attempts.
It is very likely that Russia will target and adapt impact campaigns against Denmark. Russian influence will, for example, could be in connection with an election campaign or as a consequence of Russia's broader intention to influence the situation in the Baltic Sea region to Russia's advantage.
In this context, it is likely that Russia's enhanced efforts to combat the Baltic countries, Sweden and Finland will also lead to an increased focus on Denmark.

Moscow bans ceremony honouring victims of Stalin’s Terror
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/oct/19/moscow-bans-ceremony-honouring-victims-of-stalins-terror
Memorial, the country’s oldest rights group, has held a 12-hour ceremony every year on 29 October for the past 11 years.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/06/stalin-secret-police-killings-crimes-russia-terror-nkvd
Memorial, which also speaks out about current human rights violations in Russia, has come under increasing pressure from the authorities in recent years. In 2016, Russian authorities labelled it a “foreign agent” under a 2012 law that obliges groups deemed to have “political” activities and international funding to submit documents every three months outlining their finances.
Lavrenti Beria, the boss of Stalin’s secret police, with Stalin’s daughter, Svetlana

Scary:(
Russia is becoming more and more like the failed Soviet Union...

What's for dinner tonight? Yevgeny Prigozhin asks when Holodomor is mentioned.

Weird. Kremlin has not reacted to the NATO drill Trident Juncture 18 yet.
Despite it's very close to about 1000 km to the Russian border.

One person is reported dead and Russia’s only aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" has been damaged as floating dry dock sinks into the waters of the Kola Bay.
https://thebarentsobserver.com/en/security/2018/10/aircraft-carrier-damaged-dry-dock-sinks
Oops:)
The floating dry dock at the Yard No 82 in Roslyakovo is Russia’s biggest and the only place where the Northern Fleet can conduct repairs and upgrades of its largest ships like the «Admiral Kuznetsov» as well as battle cruiser «Pyotr Veliky». The 330 meter long dock was built in Sweden in 1980 and few years later bought by the Soviet Union and taken to the Kola Bay.

Not after what happened last time:)
On the shipyard, one was engaged in another heavy marine industry, including the world's largest floating dock Nb 910 number 50 to Murmansk. This floating dock is a chapter by itself, Arendal had won a major international bidding in March 1978 and the Soviet Union ordered the giant dock to be delivered to Murmansk during the next fall.
The dock was unique to its range, 330 meters long, 90 meters wide and 30 meters high. Building time was 18 months. The trial run would be done in August and prominent Russian experts would attend to examine in detail that everything was right. Then the dock would be towed to Murmansk along the Norwegian coast. The preparations for the test trip were meticulous, It was the question of an extremely large and difficult maneuvered construction.
One had examined the route for the test trip. Likewise, we had secured the time and weather conditions. When it went on the test tour in August 1979, it was found that the weather report was not correct at all. Even the sea route proved to be an unfortunate choice. The worst thing was, however, that when you started testing the dock's features, there were confusion between the responsible representatives of the manufacturer and the Russian expert about who was responsible for the helm, and the dock was damaged. It was argued that the Russian vodka culture would have to do with it.
The construction was towed back to Arendal and because It was in a hurry with delivery, they assembled all the forces so that the repair could be done on time. It was three weeks left. The repair work was even clear in advance so that you could deliver the dock within the agreed time.
It was a Dutch company that started to tow the giant doll against Murmansk. It was during the autumn storm and the towing work proved difficult. In the end the dock arrived, but in the harbor the storm threw the dock to the beach so vigorously that it suffered severe damage. Then it was towed to Kirkenes in Norway for repair.
Almost on the day one year delayed, they got the dock to Murmansk in September 1980. After this unfortunate trip, the dock got the quirky name Ryssdocka or Trasdocka and it has become a legend (Sahlin 2014).

Russia announces rocket shootings just outside Finnmark in final days of NATO’s Trident Juncture from November 6th to 9th.
The area of rocket test firings is only about 40 kilometers north of Gamvik and Berlevåg on Norway’s Barents Sea coast.
The warning reads: «This is to inform you that the Russian navy plan to rocket test firings in the basin of the Norwegian Sea.» The area marked and the geographical positions given, however, is not in the Norwegian Sea, but in the Norwegian sector of the Barents Sea.
If clear skies, Russia’s naval shootings could be visible from shore.
Russia’s rocket shooting is the second to take place close to Norway as NATO’s biggest military exercise in many years is going on in the southern and central part of Norway.
Last week, the Barents Observer reported about the two corvettes «Soobrazitelny» and «Stoiky» that set out from Baltiisky, the naval base in the Baltic Sea. The navy group will test missiles in the Norwegian Sea inside the same maritime area as the NATO warships are sailing. Russia’s missile shootings is announced to be from November 1st to 3rd.

No. SouthKorea's Kim Jong Yang is elected the president of Interpol instead.

Third time in less than a month that the Russian navy warns about shooting exercises in Norway’s Exclusive Economic Zone.
https://thebarentsobserver.com/en/security/2018/11/russian-navy-announces-rocket-shooting-outside-lofoten-archipelago/
Perhaps it's time for Finland and Sweden to have shooting exercises in Russia’s EEZ south of Vyborg not far from St Petersburg!
After all Vyborg was a Swedish/Finnish town from 1293 until Russia "liberated" it in 1710 .

Hello? US military speaking:)
https://euvsdisinfo.eu/waiting-for-the-deep-fakes/
While the international expert community is busy discussing what the “deep fakes” of the future will look like, employees at the infamous St. Petersburg troll factory still stick to old-fashioned tricks.
Last month the troll factory’s Russian language media arm, the news agency RIA FAN, presented an audio recording of what it claimed was the voice of an American military officer; however, the person’s accent and general command of English made commentators question the recording’s authenticity.

Egal woran sie glauben... means No matter what you believe in.

Geez, so to speak, and why does Russia care?

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has given a denial of two Russian applications on good grounds for diplomatic visas, and Russia has responded by sending a diplomat at the Swedish Embassy in Moscow to Russia home," said Diana Qudhaib at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs's Press Service.

If Moscow was happy about the Syria pullout, it’s ecstatic about Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ resignation.

US FY military expenditures is 3.1% of GDP, $602 billion.
If the US choose Isolationism instead then the budget could easily be cut to 2.0%, NATO standard.
And then saving about $200 billion:)
Why does Trump want to increase FY military expenditures to $639 billion?
You can make a lot of walls for $200 billion:)
