Russia suspends Egypt flights, U.S. boosts security as intelligence points to bomb [Engl]

French TV station France 2 said on its website that the sound of an explosion could be heard on the black boxes recovered from the plane, according to an investigator who had access to them. The investigator ruled out engine failure, it added.

It looks like Putin has given in trying to cover up this one. They must have known within a few hours that it was a bomb.
But they blamed the airline to try and protect Putin's "image" in Russia.

Not much real detail. I read elsewhere that they also discussed how to "rebuild" the Donbass. ! I bet that was an interesting discussion.
Do not expect Russia to pay for rebuilding what it has destroyed.

A Plane Crash Won’t Weaken Putin’s Resolve in Syria [Engl; NYT]

Post by Nelson on Sat Nov 07, 2015 3:43 am

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/06/magazine/a-plane-crash-wont-weaken-putins-resolve-in-syria.html
Russian television, for its part, has denied that the Metrojet liner was brought down by terrorists — which, for Russians, means it wasn’t brought down by terrorists. One comparable example: For a year, Russian television insisted that separatists rebels in eastern Ukraine didn’t down the Malaysian airliner, and today, only 3 percent of Russians hold the rebels responsible. And unlike after a similar tragedy in America, the coverage will slowly dissipate, and so will any potential source of political rage.

During the day, in the area of ATO no Ukrainian soldier was killed, 4 injured in explosion

Post by Nelson on Sat Nov 07, 2015 6:39 am

http://nbnews.com.ua/ru/news/165379/
Over the past day in the area of ​​anti-terrorist operation no deaths among the Ukrainian military there. This was announced at a press briefing on Saturday, November 7, the Speaker of the Presidential Administration on ATO Andrey Lysenko.
"For the past day by fighting noUkrainian soldier was killed nor injured," - said Mr. Lysenko.
At the same time, near Marinka when viewed from the territory suffered four fighters because of an explosive device.
As reported by BNN, Nov. 5 in the Donbas and there were no losses among the Ukrainian military.

=====
A lot are getting injured clearing mines.
One wonders about the wisdom of clearing mines now. If Putin attacks again, probably it is better to have mines about.
Also Lavrov asked for the Minsk process to be "slowed up". Strange.
Putin not sure maybe whether to have his war in Syria, or go back to a big scale war against Ukraine and Europe.

Russian and Egyptian officials are not to be trusted over airline crash [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Sat Nov 07, 2015 11:16 am

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obfuscation-in-the-sinai-valley/2015/11/06/a7e5aa74-84ab-11e5-9afb-0c971f713d0c_story.html
The state media controlled by Messrs. Putin and Sissi have a nasty habit of blaming all disasters on the United States, no matter how far-fetched the theory required. So we won’t be surprised if Russians and Egyptians are told the CIA is somehow responsible for the tragedy in the Sinai. Those seeking a more rational conclusion must consider this somber point: The Egyptian and Russian regimes are far less adept at fighting terrorism than they are at lying.
====
Agree. Russia and Egypt have very strong vested interests in the truth not coming out for a very long time.
Putin's own position as supreme leader of the Russian empire, following his new war in Syria and its obvious result, and the Egyptian tourist industry.

This photo from today at Sharm.
I've been there, a couple of years' ago. Not a big airport, but supposedly packed with tens of thousands of people!
In the photo, a lot of planes... but when will the people get on them?



Frankly, a real mess.

They should have sent other security people over to help. When I was there - little or no security, to be honest.

EU to block Russia's 'anti-European' Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline

Post by Admin on Sat Nov 07, 2015 1:37 pm

Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is dead in the water.

The plan to construct the undersea pipeline to Germany, in order eliminate Ukraine as a transit country, has hit the buffers after a number of EU states raised objections to the deal - which would allow Russia to increase its near monolpoly of European gas supply and distribution.

Speaking at the sidelines of the TATRA SUMMIT in Bratislava on November 6 Slovakia's Economy Minister Vazil Hudák told New Europe magazine "We believe that the enlargement of Nord Stream is against the European rules but also the European spirit."

Hudák said Nord Stream 2 would increase European countries dependence on Russian gas and be deeply damaging for Ukraine, currently the main transit route for Siberian gas to Europe.

A U.S. official this week said the pipeline risked depriving Ukraine of more than USD 2 billion in transit fees, and ran counter to the EU's goal of reducing its energy reliance on Russia...............
