Brazil – going to a runoff election on October the 30th.
Lula beat Bolsonaro by 5 million votes but ended at the bottom of the 48-52 spread predicted by Datafolha. It looks like Bolsonaro picked up half of Ciros votes. This means Brazil will have a round 2, but Lula still has the upper hand My report for @telesurenglish pic.twitter.com/EfDtY5Q6Ad

A significant part of the bourgeoisie and the middle class have turned against Bolsonaro and the working class remains with the PT. The support from different class forces makes Lula’s victory certain, says @stedile_mst. https://t.co/OtWq5UzqC3

Yeah, its open. They tell us their motive. Nord Stream explosions are a ‘tremendous opportunity’ – US
Washington can now step in as Europe’s top supplier of LNG, the Biden administration explained
A little about Brazilian elections from Iran. https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2022/10/01/690171/Bolsonaro-and-Lula–hold-final-rallies-before-Brazil-elections
There is a lot of talk about Krasny Liman. The Russian MoD made this statement this morning:
“Due to the risk to be encircled, the allied forces were withdrawn from Krasny Liman to more advantageous frontiers.” https://t.me/mod_russia_en/4338
The fronts to my expectation are going to be materially changing because the Russian forces will have new instructions and they will materially change.

Oct. 1 – This is important. This war, using Ukrainian hands but more and more collective west hands, is taking a trajectory that I don’t want to speak out. But we have to. The US, and do remember NATO is US hands, are jonesing for a repeat of the 2nd WW, excepting now with Germany on its side. Yes, I know people say it is impossible because of Russia’s weapons. Nevertheless, the beat goes on!
“Ukrainian Parliament Chairman Ruslan Stefanchuk announces US law on lend-lease for Ukraine has now come into force, opening up OPPORTUNITY for US to send heavier weaponry to Kiev, including NATO-made tanks and fighter jets.”
And major celebrations in the new Russian territories.
We have a busy day ahead. Details are here: https://thesakeris.global/2022/09/29/stop-children-whats-that-sound/
Comment by Patrushev: “The main beneficiary of the explosions on the Nord Stream lines is the United States.
It is necessary to coordinate efforts in order to expose the customers and perpetrators of the sabotage at Nord Stream.
/Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev/
The Pentagon is creating a Ukraine Command in Germany: The Pentagon is working to create a new military command devoted to arming and training Ukrainian soldiers in Wiesbaden, Germany, US officials have told multiple media outlets, suggesting the effort will effectively “overhaul” the current process for weapons transfers to Kiev.
Here is some history on Wiesbaden during the 2nd WW.
Maria Zakharova said yesterday that the USA is now a party to the conflict. What will our United States family say if we tell them we are at war, if not kinetically, certainly in terms of values? I wonder if they know?
Peskov on the possibility of negotiations with Zelensky: Kiev has left the negotiation track, Moscow’s demands do not change, the SMO will continue. Moscow will regard possible Ukrainian strikes on territories that will become part of the Russian Federation as an act of aggression against Russia.The playbook is similar to Afghanistan, and Iraq. Nothing that Russia or even China did over the past period could get the world outside of another Perpetual War Scenario. We are at a dangerous apex and at a point of no return. President Putin at his speech to CIS countries detailed the situation.
Pursuing their goals, our geopolitical adversaries, our opponents, as we said recently, are ready to expose anyone, everyone, any country to a blow, turning it into a ground zero of a crisis, instigating “colour revolutions” and unleashing bloody massacres. We have seen this many times before.
We also know that the West is devising scenarios for inciting new conflicts in the CIS. But we already have enough of them. Just look at what is happening between Russia and Ukraine, what is happening on the borders of other CIS countries. Indeed, all of this is the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union; this much is understandable. But the risks of destabilisation are growing again, including the risks of destabilisation in the entire Asia-Pacific region.
This is a new site for me, but I like the presentation and the pipeline history! https://worldaffairs.blog/2022/09/29/us-blows-up-nordstream-and-german-economy/
Russian spooks in da house:
The head of the (SVR) Foreign Intelligence Service Naryshkin said that Russia already has materials that indicate the role of the West in organizing and carrying out explosions at Nord Stream
The Front Line comments. Positional battles take place continually and sometimes fiercely but generally, besides the Ukies trying to break through in various places, the line is neither advancing nor retreating. The Russian MoD, like clockwork every day reports: “The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue the special military operation.”
Refugee columns are being shelled: The Armed Forces of Ukraine have just shelled a refugee column in Zaporozhye, and Bloomberg and the rest have already released articles that it was Russia who killed people.
