Putin gives YouTube three days to remove video

I've wavered back and forth on whether to start this thread. The reason? Because a 25-minute video really must be watched in its entirety.

The video is the work of Alexey Navalny, the Russian "opposition" leader and a former candidate for Russia's upcoming presidential election. He a former candidate because even when Putin is assured of ~90 percent of the vote, his paranoia drives him to trump up charges against his strongest opponent, Navalny, who might get 5 percent of the vote.

The video alleges connections between Putin, Putin's hooker brigade, several oligarchs, a shadow Deputy PM who's been around ... forever, Manafort, Harvey Weinstein, and Trump. Victoria Nuland is thrown into the mix as well.

Putin gave YouTube and Instagram three days to take down the video. That was seven days ago.

If you don't watch the video, all of it, please don't comment. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQZr...U#action=share The subtitles are accurate according to Mrs. IT.

Here's a story on the matter: Russia Threatens YouTube, Instagram Over Videos Of Kremlin Official And Oligarch

But, while the article covers the allegations, the video does an excellent job of substantiating them.
Thanks from Hollywood

wow - that was a lot.

What can one say? I'm not surprised - even remotely - I'm sure the reality is far, far worse.

And, this, too, will be pooh-poohed away by the Trumpanzees who will support anybody for whom Dear Leader has shown approval.

I posted it on Facebook. Quite a few of my followers and friends there viewed it.

Far more showed interest than the politically interested and informed here on this forum.

The videos posted by Ms. Nastya Rybka undoubtedly were approved by Putin. If not, she should have an accident .... soon.

And the Manafort connection, no freaking wonder Mueller charged him and considered him a flight risk.

How did Manafort just happen to end up being Don the Con’s campaign Director ? Who directed Don the Con to hire him in the first place ?

He's a delightful character who lobbied on behalf of other delightful characters.

He lobbied for Angolan Jonas Savimbi, Congolese Mobutu Sese Seko, Philippine Ferdinand Marcos, and his Russian connection, Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovych, a man tight with Putin since the early 2000s.

He lobbied without registering with the Justice Department as a foreign agent. He registered on June 27, 2017.

Manafort is under investigation by multiple federal agencies. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reportedly had an active criminal investigation on him since 2014 regarding business dealings while he was lobbying for Yanukovich. He is also a person of interest in the FBI counterintelligence probe looking into the Russian government's interference in the 2016 presidential election. Manafort was told, after his house was raided, that he would be indicted by Robert Mueller's prosecutors.[14][15]

He was indicted in October. His charges included conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, being an unregistered agent of foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, and false statements.

Manafort negotiated a $10 million annual contract with Deripaska, the oligarch in the video, to promote Russian interests in politics, business, and media coverage in Europe and the United States, starting in 2005.

In 2013 Yanukovych became the main target of the Euromaidan protests. After the February 2014 Ukrainian revolution (the conclusion of Euromaidan) Yanukovych fled to Russia. On March 17, 2014, the day after the Crimean status referendum, Yanukovych became one of the first eleven persons who were placed under executive sanctions on the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN) by President Obama, freezing his assets in the US and banning him from entering the United States.

Manafort then returned to Ukraine in September 2014 to become an advisor to Yanukovychís former head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Serhiy Lyovochkin. In this role he was asked to assist in rebranding Yanukovych's [Putin-backed] Party of Regions. Instead, he argued to help stabilize Ukraine, Manafort was instrumental in creating a new political party called Opposition Bloc. According to Ukrainian political analyst Mikhail Pogrebinsky, "He thought to gather the largest number of people opposed to the current government, you needed to avoid anything concrete, and just become a symbol of being opposed".

According to Manafort, he has not worked in Ukraine since the October 2014 Ukrainian parliamentary election. However, according to Ukrainian border control entry data, Manafort traveled to Ukraine several times after that election, all the way through late 2015. According to The New York Times, his local office in Ukraine closed in May 2016. According to Politico, by then Opposition Bloc had already stopped payments for Manafort and this local office.

A damned crook and liar, Manafort is the man Trump chose to lead his campaign.

What happened to the giant head of Marcos carved in a mountain? Imelda had a shoe fetish but a beautiful movie star. When Marcos was President there was stability in The Philippines. Marcos imposed martial law. Marcos kept the Moro's in check.
