Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting.

This one is a classic and a game the Russkis played to good effect in Ukraine – the famous hand grenade incident in front of the parliament in Kiev was a dullard seduced in this manner by a Russian impostor pretending to be a Ukrainian nationalist in a social media group. Outcome – 3 x KIA NGU and one dullard up for life behind bars.

“The regime must drown in its blood” – a provocative appeal on behalf of the supposedly “White Legion”
