Investigators skeptical of yacht’s role in Nord Stream bombing https://twitter.com/georgegalloway/status/1643272127401844737

Original story. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2023/04/03/nord-stream-bombing-yacht-andromeda/
Officials believe more than one vessel might have been involved in sabotaging the natural gas pipeline last year and wonder if a 50-foot sailing yacht that investigators scoured for clues could be a decoy.
After saboteurs severely damaged the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines last September, German officials zeroed in on a rented sailboat that appeared to have taken part in planting explosive devices deep below the surface of the Baltic Sea.
But after months of investigation, law enforcement officials now suspect that the 50-foot yacht, the Andromeda, was probably not the only vessel used in the audacious attack. They also say the boat may have been a decoy, put to sea to distract from the true perpetrators, who remain at large, according to officials with knowledge of an investigation led by Germany’s attorney general. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details about the active inquiry, including doubts about the Andromeda’s role that haven’t been previously reported.

What an excellent turn-around!

Ukraine to export electricity again after months of Russian attacks
wrote:
Ukraine is able to export electricity for the first time in six months as its energy infrastructure recovers from months of repeated Russian attacks...

... "The most difficult winter has passed," Mr Halushchenko said on Friday.

"The next step is to start exporting electricity, which will allow us to attract additional financial resources for the necessary reconstruction of the destroyed and damaged energy infrastructure."

He also praised the "[heroic] work" of engineers and international partners to restore the system...

... Every one of Ukraine's thermal and hydroelectric power plants has been damaged since Russia began targeting energy infrastructure. Kyiv has also lost control of Europe's biggest nuclear power plant at Zaporizhzhia, which is in Russian hands...

... Along the way, other transformers as big as bungalows are disappearing behind protective cocoons of concrete and sandbags.



Full kudos to the army of workers restoring power for an entire country!


All in the deadly game of Pootin's war against humanity,

PooTin's old Chef buddy is in the jaws of the grinder now.

Wagner Boss Admits PooTin's war criminals are Taking Over Part of Bakhmut Offensive.

With Ukrainians in front of him and PooTin's war criminals all around, what do you reckon his chances are?

Just another sign that PooTin is losing his war as he's Mocked for 'Embarrassing' Cancellation of Victory Day Parade as China claims that it has Sets Limits on Russia Relationship After Leaked Documents Raise Alarm.

But PooTin is Preparing for Lengthy War as It Cracks Down on Draft Dodging as he needs more cannon fodder and war criminals to replace those that he's already lost.

It also seems that PooTin ex-Chef is now worried about his existence stuck out at the pointy end of the conflict facing the meat grinder.

Wagner Founder Urges Putin to End 'Special Military Operation'.

Then there's the ex-Russian Commander who reckons that PooTin Acts Like He's on 'Planet of the Pink Ponies'.

And he likely won't take this report to well either.

PooTin Ally May Be Aiding Weapons Transfer to Ukraine.

While these strange fires keep on popping up back at home.

"There was no explanation for the bombing other than what it described as an "abnormal descent of aviation ammunition".

Answers one question. Looks like Russian munitions don't have safeties. This could be a possible exploit.

While there seems to be problems growing amongst PooTin's orcs.

Russian Soldiers and Wagner Mercenaries Start Fighting Each Other.

PooTin is racing against time in Bakhmut and to hide Locations of 'Secret Bunkers' in Moscow as reports tell that his orcs are Too 'Exhausted' to Defend Front Line.

Saboteurs derail Russian freight train with explosives 37 miles from Ukraine and destroy power cables in double blow to Putin
Lots of photos showing the destruction in linked article

The train, carrying oil and construction materials, burst into flames following a detonation on the tracks in the Bryansk region, 37 miles from the Ukrainian border.

Video taken shortly after the attack showed several destroyed carriages ablaze and laying on their side, with dark grey smoke billowing into the air.

Red Flag!!!!!

Russia says Ukraine attacked Kremlin with drones in failed bid to kill Vladimir PooTin.

You can clearly see 2 Russians climbing the dome as that so called explosion went off and they didn't flinch, the flag didn't catch fire, nor was any falling debris seen and how did that drone go behind the glow of the moon yet detonate where it did? Surely it should've been in front of the glow.

It all smells like rotting Russian fish to me.
