FTFA : Putin is known to taunt the West by insisting the officer carrying the nuclear codes is visible beside him.
He did this in April when attending the funeral of ultra-nationalist politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky in Moscow.
Meanwhile, dramatic footage emerged yesterday showing the moment Russia's 55th colonel to die in the war was knocked out of the air when a Ukrainian missile struck his chopper.


If he was STILL the Nuclear Briefcase guy just before he was killed, then the necessary angle is WHERE IS THE BRIEFCASE NOW rather than OMG another COLONEL WAS KILLED IN UKRAINE.

He probably only carried the briefcase when they wanted to put on a show, and/or the briefcase was a fake. I doubt he'd have the real one with him at his home.

There should be a thread for all of the Putin apologists' excuses after the a**hole is dead.

Like the Nazis in 1945 and "we were just taking orders".

I'm sure it was an accident.

So this was a former briefcase guy, who moved on to the customs service, and was arrested for taking bribes.  Which means he probably refused to take bribes and was whacked for his lack of corruption.

The article doesn't say if he was shot in a way that could be self-inflicted, or two times in the back from different angles.

But he's recovering.

It makes mention of a "traumatic" pistol. My reading on this gives me the impression it's like a suped-up Airsoft gun. It's a curious weapon to use, as an officer should be issued a real Makarov.

The Soviet nuclear briefcases were made from old black market Nintendos but they did come with Tetris.

An Izh 79-9TM traumatic pistol

As if there are atraumatic pistols. Turns out it's Russian for "non-lethal" weapons, but a rubber bullet point-blank to the back of the head is going to put that claim to the test.

Used to carry the brief case...for Yeltsin.    He was at home, under house arrest because he was charged with taking bribes, when he was shot.
 
2022-06-22 10:19:17 PM  
He survived the shooting.

That was sloppy work.

Oh well, I suppose he'll die of "complications".

You don't let the guy who is being investigated for corruption KEEP THE farkING SUITCASE.

Which is why we should denuclearize Russia.

In the U.S., they use multiple carriers & multiple "footballs", not all of which are real, IIRC.  If something untoward were to happen to the carrier - such as his vehicle getting vaporized, and the Football along with it - I'm sure they have a fallback plan.  So would Russia.

So if anyone was trying to keep the codes away from Putin, that's likely futile.  Unless a whole lot of other guys got ganked that we didn't hear about.

But if Putin was trying to circumvent a mechanism designed to prevent him from launching unilaterally...  One would hope that elements in the Russian military would simply change the codes.  Hopefully.

Mostly used by security guards apparently, can be used to fire rubber bullets.

An old postal scale, some buttons that do nothing, and a hidden spot underneath for a walkie -talkie. Maybe a Japanese CB radio, because they were small and dependable.
