Good morning readers. Gremlins have infiltrated my WordPress blogging platform this morning and erased my entire post on this topic. So, I will quickly patch together the links and get them published before it happens again:
Crimean Bridge Explosion: What we know so far:
The bridge connecting the peninsula with mainland Russia was badly hit on Saturday
Ukraine behind terrorist attack on Crimean Bridge – Putin
The Russian Security Service (FSB) has identified the suspects behind the deadly explosion
“…So, as you just reported, there is no doubt,” Putin said. “It was ordered, planned and carried out by the Ukrainian security services.”
“The Ukrainian security services, as well as citizens of Russia and foreign countries* who helped organize this terrorist attack,” Bastrykin clarified.
The attack, which took place early on Saturday, saw a truck exploding on the Crimean Bridge. A part of the highway bridge collapsed in the blast and seven fuel tanks on a train heading towards Crimea through a nearby railway bridge caught fire.
At least three people were killed in the incident. The explosion led to a temporary halt of both road and railway traffic, although both had resumed by Saturday evening. Ukraine stopped short of taking responsibility for the attack, although it was celebrated on social media by the country’s Security Service (SBU) and Defense Ministry…”

NOTORIOUS UKRAINIAN DIPLOMAT TELLS MUSK TO F**K OFF
Kiev’s outgoing ambassador to Berlin used expletives to reject the peace plan floated by the US billionaire
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk caused a Twitter meltdown after he proposed a controversial peace plan to end the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia. The plan was firmly rejected by multiple Ukrainian officials, who flocked to Musk’s feed, with the notorious Ukrainian envoy Andrey Melnik producing the least diplomatic reaction.
Musk floated his peace plan on Monday, proposing new UN-supervised referendums in former Ukrainian territories, which are currently in the process of being incorporated into Russia. Kiev should also relinquish its claim to Crimea, which broke away from the country back in 2014, as well as ensuring a steady water supply to the peninsula and declaring itself a neutral country.
The plan prompted a furious response from multiple senior Ukrainian officials, including Kiev’s outgoing envoy to Berlin, best known for repeatedly insulting the German leadership and infamously branding Chancellor Olaf Scholz an “offended liverwurst.” Melnik told the billionaire to “f**k off,” suggesting it was the most diplomatic response he could have provided to the peace plan.
The peace plan initially garnered solid support in a Twitter poll, but ultimately attracted the attention of pro-Ukrainian trolls who turned the tide, with nearly 60% opposing it after over 2.6 million votes. Musk, who is no stranger to controversy on Twitter, said the poll had come under the “biggest bot attack I’ve ever seen.”
Another, toned down poll, in which Musk asked whether at least the people of Donbass and Crimea should decide if they want to stay with Russia or Ukraine, was subjected to bot attacks as well. Still, only some 40% of respondents voted to deny these people the right to decide their own fate after more than 2.2 million votes.
Early in the ongoing conflict, Musk strongly supported Kiev, sending hundreds of SpaceX’s Starlink terminals to Ukraine. While the proclaimed purpose of the move was humanitarian, Kiev has since admitted to using them for the war effort, while Russian troops claimed to have seized multiple units from Ukrainian troops.
In wake of the controversial peace plan, however, multiple pro-Ukrainian users suggested the billionaire should now shove said terminals up his rectum, while President Vladimir Zelensky launched a poll of his own, wondering whether his followers preferred the Musk who supported Ukraine or this one, who “supports Russia.”
Greencrow concludes: As I said in my conclusions that were wiped out by gremlins in my blogging platform just a few moments ago…Putin is a very patient man. He did not retaliate to Western provocations even when they cut him to the marrow a few years ago when they shot down the plane carrying the entire Russian military choir – killing all aboard. If he didn’t retaliate to that, I don’t think he’ll retaliate to this…especially when the bridge has already re-opened.
But this act of terrorism will not sit well with the sentients in the West. They know that Putin could easily do the same to countless bridges in the West…and this kind of tit for tat is a zero sum game. So, I don’t think the ‘cooler heads’ that sometimes prevail in the west will be too impressed with their Ukraine proxies’ stunt. Nor should they be.
Let me put it this way….Putin is now sitting on a gold mine of PR points. He just has to know how to optimize them.
*”and foreign countries” –Greencrow notes: As I have said countless times on this blog over the nearly 10 years I’ve been blogging full time–any explosion anywhere in the world at any time can 99% be blamed on the ‘usual suspects’.
