Petrov, Boshirov, Colonel Chepiga. And who do you actually believe?
I thought that all normal people adequately relate to sources of information that you just wouldn’t call just "yard". However, observing how everyone in the LiveJournal pounced on discussing whether Bashirov really was Chepig ... no, they all rushed to discuss how cleverly Bashirov, who was Chepiga, was brought to clean water.
Uh-uh ... are you serious? Do you really seriously discuss this? Those. if something is written on the fence, you will not even fit or touch it? You will seriously discuss that it is the same and is definitely not a tree?
Have you ever wondered what "The Insider" and "Bellingcat" are? Well, take an interest ...
The Insider Internet publication was founded in November 2013 by a member of the Solidarity movement Roman Dobrokhotov, who is currently its editor-in-chief. The resource specializes in investigative journalism of a pronounced anti-Russian character.Information about the sources of financing The Insider is not publicly available, they are also not listed on the website of the publication. According to the assumption of the TV channel "Tsargrad", one of the investors of the "trackers" is M. Khodorkovsky, known for his biased attitude towards the current Russian leadership. The level of professionalism and methods at the organization of Khodorkovsky during the conduct of investigations, several journalists have already fatally checked on their person. The purpose of such investigations, too, and no one hides.
The goal is to attract at least something to the ordered result.
Since 2017, the publication has been cooperating with the "international expert-journalistic group" Bellingcat. Well, as a group ... once one dude, while he was sitting at home with his small child on maternity leave, made a blog and started writing all about videos from YouTube. Then the Syrian war began and he began to “analyze” Arabic videos about chemical poisoning in a blog without knowing Arabic. Then he made an analysis of satellite images of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation by the method of Neil Kravets, so much so that after that Neal Krawetz himself had to speak and report that the conclusions were made horribly incompetent.Neal Krawetz, the creator of the fotoforensics.com service, said on his Twitter account that he “has nothing to do with this erroneous analysis” (available here).
The British of this name is Eliot Higgins. It is noteworthy that the project was launched on July 14, 2014, just three days before the events from the MH-17. And he immediately made his "analysis" of the causes of the crash of the very Malaysian aircraft. At the same time, many questions are raised by the competence of Higgins himself, who, in his own words, has drawn his knowledge about weapons from films with Schwarzenegger and Stallone.
The “international expert group” mainly uses information from “anonymous unnamed sources” in its investigations. This is of course very serious and reliable information. And it seems to me that for all this group our Eliot is composing :-)
Among investors, Bellingcat can be distinguished by the Open Society Foundation international charity foundation and the American think-tank Atlantic Counsil. The first organization is sponsored by billionaire George Soros, who openly declared the need to change the ruling regimes in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The second structure was created by representatives of Western elites and works under the auspices of NATO.Despite the stated goals of forming a constructive international dialogue, Atlantic Counsil is in fact engaged in spreading anti-Russian propaganda and receives funds from the US Department of Defense in the form of official grants. At Atlantic Counsil itself, they do not hide the fact that Higgins works for them. On the organization's website, he is listed as a senior researcher.
And now, these figures periodically release some sort of nonsense, confusing the GRU, the Main Directorate of the General Staff, the FSB and the KGB in one pile, and the Russian media and bloggers (Murtazin, well ё-mine!) Get on the move and start analyzing and discussing.
