Pump up the volume

Russia’s state media is asking for votes on the best name for the alleged new nuclear-powered cruise missile.
Suggested names include “The American Dream,” “[Radioactive] Dust” and “Givi” - dead anti-Gov’t terrorist in Donbas, Ukraine (name suggested by none other than Vladislav Surkov, known as Russia's "grey cardinal").

“Givi” is the Nom de guerre of Mikhail Tolstykh that fought in Donbas, Eastern Ukraine.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhail_Tolstykh
Arsen Pavlov "Motorola" was his "Brother in Arms".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arsen_Pavlov
Vladislav Surkov is known as Russia's "grey cardinal"

"We do not threaten anyone" say Putin.
The central part of the President's speech was the presentation of several samples of the latest weapons: the Sarmat intercontinental rocket, the Avangard strategic missile complex, the laser installation, the new-generation cruise missile. This weapon makes US missile defense system useless. The novelty of the message is a video showing the capabilities of Russian military equipment.
At the same time, Putin stressed that Russia "did not have any plans to use this potential for offensive or even more aggressive purposes."

"We do not threaten anyone, we are not going to attack anyone", the president said.

Yeah, right...
When someone point a weapon right on my face...
Silly me. That's not a threat!

Correct. Germany is one of the countries under Putin's thumb.

Not quite.
But Putin has an advantage.
He knows the German language fluently since his Dresden years.
And we dont like the idea of the Nord Stream 2 gas lines.
Russia even wants some help and access from Sweden in two very to Sweden importain military regions.
Gotland and Blekinge!

Always remember that Putin believes the worst thing to happen to Russia after the Soviet Collapse. Was the 'breakup' of the Russian Empire.
Putin wants that back, and possibly much more.

That's very true.
And there are more in the Kremlin thinking the same!

RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA is GOoD, REAL GOoD

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/capstone-receives-substantial-order-recovering-133000559.html

VAN NUYS, Calif., March 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today a follow-on order for thirteen C65 microturbines to be deployed in western Russia. Electrosystems LLC, Capstone’s distributor for the Northwest and Central Federal Districts of Russia, secured the substantial follow-on order.
...............................................................
In 2017, Electrosystems secured an initial eleven unit order for an industrial park in western Russia for a combined heat and power (CHP) application. As the industrial park grew, additional power capacity was needed. Due to the demonstrated reliability, rugged performance and low maintenance of the Capstone microturbines, the customer decided to expand their microturbine-based power plant.

“The Russian market represented almost $30 million in annual revenue for Capstone back in fiscal 2012 when the Russian government instituted regulations limiting the flaring of associated gas and Brent crude oil prices were above $100 per barrel,..................................................................
........................

MicroTurban Yap

May we All have a METAMORPHOSIS. REASON. GOoD JUDGEMENT and LOVE and ORDER!!!!!

Trump still has not said a word about new Russian weapons aimed at killing millions of Americans:
Trump has tweeted about Alec Baldwin, not Moscow's video of new nuclear weapons aimed at the U.S.

Trump may be awaiting the EU sanctions, especially sanctions against importing Russian energy. Which is funding much of Putin's ambitions.

Meanwhile the US import LNG (Gas) from Russia!

But our economy is not dependent upon Russian gas. As many in the EU are.
Why would any Country make themselves dependent on Putin?

Most countries in Central Europe perhaps?
Hehe. We in the Nordic countries are not dependent on Russian gas:)
Mostly Germany.

What sane German Government would have allowed their economy to be subservient to the whims of Putin?
Because Putin is a very good negotiator and a friend of Angela Merkel perhaps?
Well sort of, but both of them have worked in former East Germany DDR.
And the negotiations are always in German which actually helps.
I have worked for a German company:)

From a film about Putin.
"Миропорядок", "The World Order".
Putin about the possibility of using nuclear weapons.
He says Russia has the right to respond if anyone tries to destroy it.
"Yes, it would be a global catastrophe for humanity and the world as a whole... but if there were no Russia, who needs such a world?"

Once more, a Russian intelligence ship is conducting operations just off the coast of the southeastern United States. The SSV-175 Viktor Leonov remains in international waters, but is only a few dozen miles away from a major US ballistic missile submarine base in Georgia.

Tensions are high (aren't they always?) between Washington and Moscow. During his March 1 annual address to the Russian Federal Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin premiered a short video of Russia's new nuclear Sarmat ballistic missile striking a landmass that many remarked looked quite similar to the US state of Florida.
"I think it certainly looks like [Florida]," said US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert about the video. "I'd ask you to go back and take a look at that. It's pretty clear what their target is."

Don't belive anything until the Kremlin denies.
http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-43359154
British police have over 200 witnesses and more than 240 evidence in the investigation of the neurotoxicity attack against former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia Skripal, said Interior Minister Amber Rudd.
The 66-year-old Sergei Skripal and 33-year-old Julia Skripal were found unconscious on a bench in a mall in British Salisbury on Sunday. A police who arrived early to the site also fell ill. More than 20 people have received some kind of treatment - such as giving blood samples or receiving some kind of support and counseling - and according to the analyzes, a nerve agent was used in the attack on father and daughter.
Amber Rudd also said on Saturday that more than 250 police officers from the counter terrorism unit participate in the investigation and that it is progressing with "speed and professionalism".
The police have asked for help from the British military to move a number of vehicles and items from the crime scene, and up to 100 soldiers are expected to be put into work.

The suspicions have been directed against Russia, whose Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denied all allegations.
