Putin went public on the “bridge case” 38 hours after the Crimean Bridge, as a symbol of Putinism, was blown up.
Moreover, please note that, as we said yesterday, the emphasis is not on the “red line”, the mention of which has generally disappeared from the state press, which Mr. G. insisted on, sending out methodological instructions for disseminating information about the bridge in the press “at the right angle “, but on the material base
The Kremlin emphasized that a “test train” had already been launched, work had already begun to restore the bridge, so the amount of damage from the explosion was insignificant. (See the Talking Points below)
Putin accused the Ukrainian side of carrying out the “explosion”, and Bastrykin was instructed to “find all the guilty”, the list of which, and Putin emphasized this, includes some Russians.
Doesn’t this remind you of anything?
Let us recall the case of Dugina, about which everyone has now forgotten. There was an explosion in the center of Moscow, the FSB seized the case from the Investigative Committee with lightning speed, deciding to raise the stakes, accusing Ukraine of committing an assassination attempt. As a result, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, having received the materials of the case from the FSB, hesitated, after which the information departments were ordered to “stop the information waves.” After that, the Vovk case did not appear at all in the Russian official press, and a small boom was recorded only after one of the American publications publishes information that Ukraine “ordered” Dugin. At the same time, the news lends itself in such a way that US intelligence agreed with the FSB investigation … And silence.
Vovk’s case would be suspended, no one would find Vovk herself and no one would even try to find her, and those who helped her cross the border, according to the FSB version, would also be brought into the information shadow.
And then – with the case of Vovk – and now – with the “red line” of the Crimean Bridge – the Kremlin is acting to lower the escalation, while the “party of hawks” continues to escalate the situation in an abnormal way up to the threat of the use of nuclear weapons.
At the same time, in fact, in the media, K. + P. come into conflict with departments close to Putin’s power vertical, demanding more decisiveness from them, in response to which Putin, almost 2 days later, says that “an investigation is underway,” but in principle forgets about the “red lines”, which he has been squealing about since the construction of the bridge.
This means that in the law enforcement agencies there is a struggle for complete influence over the state. And on the one hand, Putin’s plucked castrated hawks are speaking, and on the other, the “nuclear hawks”, who now, through the “leaders of the Security Council” will try to start the nuclear track again. And the first ones are very scared, since tactical nuclear weapons will not change the situation in favor of Russia, but will raise the question of the further need for the existence of Russia itself.
That is why now, through the “plucked hawks”, a message is being launched in parallel that strikes on the Crimea are permissible and, in principle, do not launch the “nuclear doctrine” of the Russian Federation.
The “hawks” Medvedev, Volodin and Lavrov have been ordered to remain silent and not to comment on the Crimean Bridge case in principle.
The plucked hawks are launching a “different negotiating reality”, which Turkey and the “red-haired beast” Trump have already admitted to lobbying for.
