If you've been following this week's blogs, Russia has been front and center. It's not because I'm on some sort of "Russia kick" but simply because, as readers here know, the blogs on this site are in part "community driven," i.e., I blog about the most numerous stories I receive from readers here who notice and send along stories, and when themes emerge from that mass of emailings, I tend to concentrate on those themes. And this past week, Russia has certainly been "the theme." This story was noticed by Mr. T.M. (and several others), and it's a strange one, for sure, and as this story is coming from the U.K. tabloid The Daily Mail, take it with a grain of salt:

UFO alert as Putin drafts in army after Siberian mountain 'collapses

The story is straightforward enough: a natural fissure in a mountain caused a landslide, blocking a river, threatening a local hydro-electric power supply center, and threatening to cut off a major rail line between Siberia and Russia's far East coastline:

VLADIMIR Putin has drafted in soldiers to investigate a “collapsed mountain” in a remote region of Siberia amid suggestions it may have been caused by a UFO crash-landing.

Whatever the cause, the resulted in a massive rockfall which has blocked the nearby Bureya river, and left several villages at risk of flooding. So much rock was shifted it would fill 13,600 Olympic-sized swimming pools, say experts. Meanwhile, the falling 34 million cubic metres of debris left a gash in a mountain which could swallow up all the water used if every American showered at the same time.


Flooding could also disrupt the 2,700-mile long Baikal-Amur Mainline rail link, which is a vital link between the interior and Russia’s east coast, unless the army can unblock the river quickly.

To complicate matters still further, a hydro-electricity station is also threatened because water is drying up in Bureyskaya hydro power  reservoir located downstream.

A significant number of locals seem to think it was UFO-related, but A British geologist is laying the blame to much more mundane sources: fissures in the local topography:

However, a local poll in eastern Russian suggested the while 27 per cent agreed with his assessment, more – 33 per cent believed a – was the cause.

Professor Dave Petley,  Vice-President for Research and Innovation at the University of Sheffield and an expert in the science of landslides, dismissed both ideas, explaining the mountain slope above the Bureya had a “pre-existing tension crack or depression” at an altitude of around 1,900 ft.

He said: “We can say that this is certainly a rock slope failure, and that it is highly unlikely to be associated with a impact event.”

Ok, I'll buy that, but I'm still skeptical. This seems to be a week when Russia is concentrating on the Dark Overlord 9/11 hacks, when its version of the Hubble telescope has "gone down" and Roscosmos has "lost control" of it, so the timing here bothers me, and as one might imagine, I'm willing to crawl to the end of the twig of high octane speculation here, for it strikes me as just a little too convenient that this rock slide manages to threaten a power plant, a major rail artery, and several villages, all at once, particularly when some locals are saying "UFO." So what if all the proffered explanations are true? What if some "space event" or "impact" event on a natural feature deliberately triggered the slide? Against this idea the article points out that there were no meteor impacts reported in Siberia last December, which raises another question: why was the military sent in so late? But in any case, the military response itself is intriguing, suggesting that the Russian Ministry of Defense may suspect more is involved in the story than mere geological features. Indeed, this statement may be interpreted in that sense:

A defence ministry source said a group of specialists is en route “to conduct reconnaissance work” at the site, where the rocks fell some 1,280 ft on to the valley floor.

"Reconnaisance work" normally implies reconnoitering enemy positions or activity; "Exploration work" or "initial assessments" would be the phrase to use if one suspected merely something natural. It's that suggestive use of words - and the Russians are nothing if not very attentive to words - and the unusual effects of the location of this landslide, that make me wonder if some sort of sophisticated covert operations or warfare were being conducted against Russia...

...think of it as the Russian version of the California fires...

See you on the flip side...

    Akin to California residence obliteration…….bingo!
    Maybe a beta test just in case the “border wall” turned out to be concrete instead of Steel. Just checking resonance frequency response., oh wait mountains are not concrete, just the DUMB reinforced facilities within mountains are concrete….got to start somewhere……
    Siberian Sinkholes, landslides, forest removal, meteor disintegration are just mere coincidences, all to occur in Russia. Now what would the message be to the world if the actions above were accomplished as tests by Russia?

    yes but Hitlers banker, Schacht, was formative of the BIS, and was the only one to not be half hung (then die 30 min later) at Neuremberg. Schacht was a ‘good boy’. Unlike China these days, not many banksters were executed in Nazi Germany (AFAIK)

    this is going commercial? on a smaller business level?

    jim lee and david miles.

    doc, didn’t you post recently on the normalization of this tech?

  4. zendogbreath on January 19, 2019 at 11:54 am

    the curious thing in all this russia vs the deep state (with nazi background of course) trope is that it seems just a bigger longer false dialectic. hitler, stalin and all the deep staters were financed and fed at the same bankster trough. reminds me of the road runner cartoons where the coyote and roadrunner say good morning and goodnight as they clock in and out for their day’s work.

      Problem: someone[faction] goes off the reservation[script]. BIG problem[Hitler?]. The reason?
      It sets precedent.
      Make an unforgettable example.

      By the bye;
      WW1, the wrong side won, in regards to the economic factions: industrial capitalism vs financial capitalism[brushstroke version].
      In WW11, Hitler goes Lincoln[greenbacks]
      Lincoln was plugged by the Rothchild’s cartel.
      Lincoln’s unforgivable telos?
      Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of mankind.

      • zendogbreath on January 19, 2019 at 11:35 pm

        that’s right hitler did commit that one lone sin, didn’t he. seems any other sin is completely forgiven but not that one. in fact seems all other sins are fostered. guess it provides leverage against anyone who commits that one sin. wonder why hitler did it. he had to have known who his financiers were. and are. no gratitude? and they took good care of him and his in the end. the turnout of wwll makes me think it more likely his lincoln move was a ruse. but who to and what for?

    my first thought is x47b drone with led display mounted bottom for invisibility and laser / ulf transmission to initiate earth quakes. with combination of chemtrail and ionospheric heating and drone positioning for detailed intense surveilance and dew, it’d be more than easy to make a rod of the deity do that dirty work.

    This event reminds me of the 1959 earthquake which formed Quake Lake west of Yellowstone:
    “The event caused a massive avalanche of rock, soil and trees (an estimated 28-33 million cubic meters of material), which descended down from the Madison River Canyon’s south wall at nearly 100 mph. It took less than one minute for the 80 million tons of rock to slam into the narrow canyon, blocking the river and creating Earthquake Lake. … The fallen material formed a wall blocking the Madison River’s flow. After only three weeks, the dammed river created a lake more than 170 feet deep.”

    Both events were out in the boondocks (Siberia and Yellowstone area). Yellowstone’s had no downstream consequences, so the ‘dam’ was left in pace. Siberia’s has downstream consequences, so the ‘dam’ must be breached or removed. Putin may not want to reward oligarchs through contracting with their companies, so the army is an obvious, even popular, solution.

    I favor a natural cause (weakening of rock) over a technological cause. Terrorists (private or state-backed) tend to strike where there is maximum visibility or political symbolism. Remote Siberia does not fit their modus operandi. (Can’t speak about UFOs…)

    • Robert Barricklow on January 18, 2019 at 6:27 pm

      Does Yellowstone have an awakening super volcano?
      And/Or, can it be purposely triggered?

    • zendogbreath on January 19, 2019 at 11:44 am

      this may be the boonies but given the infrastructure endangered hardly seem trivial. putin might be thinking of so engineering solutions that might be a little quicker than most oligarchs can publicly provide too.

      wow thank you. didn’t see a whole lot of evidence of previous similar landslides in that area. seems anomalous eh?

    Two SU-34 jets collided over the Sea of Japan. The crews of the jets ejected.
    Yes, Russia’s continuing coincidences are: enemy action[Goldfinger].
    Of all the usual suspects; the extra-territorial Nazi International is in prime pole position[Occam’s razor].
    They have the capabilities, motive, track-record, and certainly: history; to pull it off.
    Russia & the Nazis long history of conflict is ever present.

    Was D.C.’s Paper Clip infection fatal?
    Why Trump can’t summon the political will to side w/Russia & put the Nazi International out of business?
    High-octane conjectures?

      Robert B. @ 12.06:

      Why Nazi International or PaperClip infection?
      Didn’t Russia jam USN electronics in Black or Caspian Sea? Semi-recent USN collisions near Singapore, etc.

      Why not a tech demonstration between “conventional adversaries”?

    This story is full of fissures if you’ll pardon the pun. Knowing what we know about weaponised technology (and I’m reading Elana Freeman’s book – ‘Under an Ionised Sky’, at the moment) it would be a serious ommision not to consider some sort of skullduggery from someone somewhere we do not know but can speculate upon.
    Elana Freemans book is a shock a minute and if true, which I suspect it is, then we are deeper in the ‘you know what’ than I ever thought possible.

    • Robert Barricklow on January 18, 2019 at 12:14 pm

      Her prelude: Chemtrails, HAARP, and Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth; was just as shocking.
      Her final in this series will concentrate on 5G.
      [Can’t wait for next, as well as Dr. Farrell’s next.]

      • swimsinocean on January 18, 2019 at 5:10 pm

        I just ordered the prelude….might as well do the full spectrum masochism thing for a few days and get it over with.

        • Robert Barricklow on January 18, 2019 at 6:21 pm

          Quite shocking revelations,
          including race specific weaponization
          [if my memory serves me].
