What the Hell Just Happened in Russia: Powerstation Explosion in Naval Base Region – Helicopters Landing on Moscow Streets – Dead Man Found at Russian Consulate in New York

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 10:49
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Something serious appears to be happening in Russia, as well as at the Russian Consulate in New York.

Speculation abounds as multiple events taking place in the last few hours indicate that either a very coincidental set of circumstances just happened, or an attack has been initiated against Putin’s government.

Here’s what we know right now.

On the heels of a previous announced pre-positioning of cyber warfare assets last week and some 300,000 NATO troops preparing for battle in Europe, we learn this morning from RT that a massive blast at an electrical substation in Murmanks, Russia has left part of the region without power.

What makes this outage particularly interesting is that Murmanks is the main administrative base for the entire Northern Russian Fleet.

The northern Russian port city of Murmansk, with a population of 300,000, has been partly left without electricity following an emergency at an energy facility. Eyewitnesses captured a bright flash, after which the lights went out.

There have been eyewitnesses’ reports of a “huge blast” at one of the city’s electrical substations, according to SeverPost news agency.

There is apparently no electricity in government headquarters in the city center, FlashNord reported citing its correspondent in the area. Lights have been off in both central areas and in the outskirts, according to SeverPost.

An incident happened at one of the facilities of the Kolenergo regional energy company, its press service told RT, without specifying what exactly happened.

The causes of the “incident” are now being investigated by a special commission, the company said, adding that specialists are now working on damage control and recovery.

While no information has been made available about the cause of the blast, there is speculation that the explosion and subsequent outage may have been the result of a virus or trojan similar to the Stuxnet hardware virus that took down Iranian nuclear reactor centrifuges. A similar cyber warfare tool could be used to take down electric power stations much like the cyber attack on a U.S. water treatment facility in Illinois several years ago.

In and of itself that event would normally be dismissed as just a power outage, except just a few hours ago numerous helicopters landed on city streets in the Baumanskoj suburb of Moscow. Witnesses are reporting a huge police presence in the area:

And even that wouldn’t necessarily be all that suspicious as a stand alone event, but since it’s election day and the Obama administration has threatened Russia with a significant response should they be found to be meddling in U.S. elections, the fact that a dead man with head trauma was found at the Russian Consulate in New York City this morning gives us a hat trick of very odd events occurring at exactly the time when U.S. elections are taking place:

Police are investigating after a 63-year-old man was found dead inside the Russian Consulate on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Tuesday morning.

Authorities say they found the man unconscious and unresponsive at the location on 91st Street just before 7 a.m., reports CBS New York.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, appeared to have suffered head trauma, police said.

All of this begs the simple question: What the hell is going on with Russia right now?

    Weren’t we just hacking the Russian power grid?

    Not surprised, US has some of the best hackers with the best hardware. We press a button, their power plant bored itself up.

    We probably got tired of listening to those commie cossaks, and shut their dumb country down.

    Hard for a bunch of cossaks to threaten the US when were can shut them down from a laptop 5000 miles away.

      Seems to me a third party (i.e. Israhellis) wants to start war b/w Amurika and Russia so that once both of them are significantly destroyed that third party can become the superstate/ruling state in the world. Feel free to study on “Greater Israhell Project” and this concept will make some sense. In the mean time, those Russians should take their grids offline, install linux as secondary OS on their workstation and run those windows based PLL controller application inside an windows virtualizer software. That would be the quickest short term fix without shooting someone on the head until more robust fix could be found.

      I don’t think those operator’s in Russian ICBM silos or nuclear subs are using crappy microsoft products to push that red button. You can play with your lapdog all night long, may be watch some porn out of frustration, but you won’t be stopping any emp from taking out your toilet flushing privilege.


      Stop living in the 1980s and educate your ignorant ass.

    Obama regime was responsible for any type of attack on Russia that is a aggressive, criminal act.

    nice one

  • VirusGuard

    Russia and the USA are playing us a script from 1984 and are freinds behind closed doors

    Well ATS is giving us a slaging and to be frank they are right in many respects because we have got far too many fiction posts here on B4IN and chick little stories

    The thing is ATS wants members to argue with one hand tied behind there back and use that to push an agender as if someone is paying them and thats why i won’t post there anymore plus the site links to pages that will download a virus on to your machines.

    The truth will make you stronger

    Hmm…almost identical to what happened in Puerto Rico not too long ago…very interesting! Almost like a direct energy source overload. CME or EMP? Direct energy weapon?


    This entire article is BS. I cannot locate a single article to back it up, not even on RT. Never believe anything that comes out of GLPRODUCTIONS. They are anything but…lying, sacks of doo-doo productions would be more accurate.

    • Watcher1266

      It’s not BS – Here’s the link to RT: – fact check that!

      • LifeIs

        Yes the link to the RT article is in THIS article, above. In this paragraph: “On the heels of a previous announced pre-positioning…” The blue lettering of “from RT” is the link. Click on that, Factless and Clueless.

        And you’ll need to delete the clutter in front of the RT link itself. Or just click on Watcher1266′s link.

        And someone please tell Air Quotes etc. that the Soviet Union ceased to exist 25 years ago, which is a long time. And the Communists are a minority party in Russia. And there is no sane reason for us to be attacking that country. And Russia is not unarmed.

        What’s being reported in the video is a power outage in Murmansk (which isn’t near Moscow , it’s next to Arkangelisk and Norway). I’ve been up there . It’s where the Russian north sea fleet is headquartered . My guess would be that there are several simultaneous power outages occurring at the same time in different regions of Russia.

        • Watcher1266

          There are reports of more then one thing happening in more then one area. Apparently the Russians are also going to make a major offensive against Allepo tomorrow so let’s see how this all turns out…
