    Detective: "So, any idea of the cause of death?"
    Coroner: "We think someone loaded some custard with Novichok and poured it over three hookers"
    D: "WTF?"

    This story is amazing. Navalny just got a confession from the spy who poisoned him.

    I was reading that last night - genuinely fascinating stuff.

    There's a few articles on their site at the moment going into how they worked out who was involved - well worth a read.

    It's rare to see the combination of the modern skills required to gather and parse the digital information now available with the methods and techniques of traditional investigative journalism.

    I can’t believe that KGB agent fell for that. Surely the voice, non secure line, lack of information were all red flags. He’s well and truly let the cat out the bag now. Putin is going to have some serious questions to answer, which he’ll no doubt play down the same way he always does.

    Or maybe not even the questions

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/22/putin-signs-bill-granting-lifetime-immunity-to-former-russian-presidents

    Vladimir Putin has signed legislation that will grant former presidents of Russia lifetime immunity once they leave office.

    The bill, which was published online on Tuesday, gives former presidents and their families immunity from prosecution for crimes committed during their lifetime.

    The Khangoshvili murder article they posted is equally as good. I haven't read too many more than those two. I think the fact that they post their methods has a number of upsides beyond the kudos that rightly comes their way. It provides them with a level of protection for one, and it is also an education to others in their field. Amazing journalism.

    This won't end well for Navalny.

    Navalny released this today. Brave man.

    Putin's Palace 30mins in is interesting.
