An oil drilling platform has capsized in the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's east coast, leaving four people reportedly dead and 49 missing.

MOSCOW (AP) — An oil drilling platform has capsized in the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's east coast, leaving four people reportedly dead and 49 missing. The Emergencies Ministry said in a statement Sunday that there were 67 people aboard the platform as it was being towed about 200 kilometers (120 miles) off the coast of Sakhalin Island in stormy conditions. It said 14 people had been rescued.

Russian news agencies later cited ministry officials as saying the bodies of four people had been found. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment by The Associated Press.

It is a tragic accident, but the weather and ocean conditions being unpredictable, and subject to sudden changes, it makes it harder to avoid.

It is more than likely that it was insured, and things have to go on, and a new oil drilling platform will have to be made, or rented.

It is possible for a mini submarine from an unfriendly country to have been responsible, because they want to influence the Russian Presidential Election, and it may be preferable to keep some things until after that Election.

Russia was given World Trade Organization Membership because Anglo-America wants Russian Voters to think that Russia does not need the Economic Management of United Russia.

There were American Elites who did not want John Kennedy to be President of America, and perhaps a Fortress Palace, and not too much travelling would have come in handy for him at that time.

Anglo-America really, really do not want Vladimir Putin to win the Presidential Election, and the New American Ambassador to Russia is a Spy for the Election Campaign, in order to help Foreigners Exploit Russia’s Natural Resources.

I was considering if one or more foreign submarines could attach strong metal or even light weight plastic cable or cables onto the oil drilling platform in order to pull it under the water or to capsize it.

I think that even commercial ships should use sonar to know if there are submarines in the vicinity.

I do not know anything about sonar, except for the basics, but I was thinking if it could detect plastic submarines, or stealth submarines made of a new material and shape such as are use in some jets that cannot be detected by radar.

We know that melanin absorbs Ultra Violet radiation and dissipate the energy as harmless heat, and I was thinking that this may be how sonar and radar cannot detect some things.

Ultra Violet radiation is an electromagnetic radiation, and we know that sunglasses filter this Ultra Violet light.

Filters can be made for one form of electromagnetic radiation, then perhaps this can be done why sonar or radar.

We know that with sunglasses they do let the UV light enter, and so a radar or sonar may be made by letting that radiation enter, but not leave.

This could be done having a clear plastic surface, but there is rubber or some other material underneath the first surface to absurd the radar or sonar, or the second surface may have little holes like ducts where the sonar or radar goes to be muffled like with a car’s muffler.

It could be that the radar or sonar encounter a rough surface like rough concrete that scatters that radiation, but uses more fuel, and this is acceptable for the purposes of evading sonar and radar.

Russia has no regard for its oil workers.

Russia is a disgrace. It leaks more oil than anyone.

If we do not have opinions just because we know that we cannot always be right, then we would be lost, but Facts are not Opinions, but they are Facts.

For those with Experience, they know that if Anglo-America or the Nazis of Europe give you anything, then it is for an Ulterior Motive, or because they Very Grudgingly and Very Reluctantly have to appear to be Virtuous, but, be Certain that this is not because of making a Virtue because of being Virtuous, but it is Only because of making a Virtue out of an Unavoidable Necessity.

I do think that Russia was given World Trade Organization Membership because Anglo-America wants Russian Voters to think that Russia does not need the Economic Management of United Russia.

We know that Anglo-America’s Scheme of a Colour Revolution in Russia has failed, and so they went to their next Scheme.

This Scheme possibly involves using Fifth Columnists to do stupid things like ordering an oil drilling platform to placed in the ocean during bad conditions.

We know that there is no law against be stupid, and sometimes Fifth Columnists will pretend to be stupid, because the Court has to prove that there was an intention to do something wrong.

It could that that those with Anglo-American connections can profit enormously at the expense of the People of Russia if Vladimir Putin do not become President.

I know that Anglo-America is in nearly every Country, and it would not surprise if they have even Infiltrated North Korea.

There could be those who may have noticed that not long after Russia was given Membership of the World Trade Organization that trouble began in Kazakhstan.

Those informed readers will know that there is a Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia.

This Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia is what these Member Countries need for their Economic Prosperity, and they need it to encourage other East European Countries like Ukraine to join that Customs Union rather than joining the European Union.

It would not have been the Russian Government who would ever have wanted to destroy the oil drilling platform, and this is why I suggested that it may be preferable to keep some things similar to this on hold until after the Russian Presidential Election.

We can see that Anglo-America is trying to make Russian Voters think that Russia’s Natural Resources should be Owned by the American Elite, where the 1 % are Wealthy and the 99 % are Struggling, as the American Demonstrations prove.

Russia has many Wealthy Oligarchs who are not ethnically Russian, just like Boris Berezovsky and Mikhail Khodorkovsky who have Stolen vast amounts of Monies from the Russian People both young and old, and who in Partnership with Anglo-America and the Nazis of Europe wish to keep Russia poor and weak.

America made it clear that they did not like the United Russia Team, and they did this with their support for Russian Protests, even though there were no valid reasons for those Protests as I have explained in more detail in other comments.

The Western Sponsored and Coordinated Protestors are in fact Protesting against Democratic Rights and Human Rights of anyone to stand for Public Office, and for Voters to Vote for whoever they wish.

These Protesters Leaders are in Fact Protesting against Democracy, because just like their Tutors, America, they, do not want Vladimir Putin to be elected President of the Russian Federation.

It is Undemocratic to Protest on how Voters will use their Rights and Free Will to Vote for their Interests, because in a Democracy, this can only be determined on Election Day, and the result must be accepted by all Voters, and this includes those who did not Vote for the winning Party or Candidate.

These Protestors do not have any Evidence for their False Allegations, and in one way this is good for the People of Russia to know what Russia will descend to as America’s Puppet if the Protestors win the Election.

They say that you should either put up or shut up, and these if these Protestors have any Evidence then they should present it to the Independent Investigating Authorities, because they are presently conducting an enquiry into this matter, and they would appreciate any honest information.

Just days before the Russian Parliamentary Election, All of the Respected and Reliable Opinion Polls Predicted that United Russia would receive at least 53% of the Popular Vote, and the Exit Polls Proved that 50 % of Voters Voted for United Russia, and the Official Election Commission Figures Confirmed that United Russia received 49.3 % of the Popular Vote, and this gives United Russia a small majority in the Russian Parliament.

It needs to be said that the only thing I know about radar is that it is electromagnetic radiation, and so if I say anything ridiculous in this comment, then ignore, but the very important principle that Anglo-America will always try to deceive is correct.

We sometimes see pictures of stealth bombers that have flat surfaces, but flat surfaces can direct radar waves back to from where they were sent.

Those jets may not be radar evading jets, because I think that surfaces with curves would not reflect much electromagnetic radiation back to the from where it was sent.

This means that the jets we see on television are not really radar evading, but used only to deceive People into thinking that this is the proper shape to evade radar.

It could be that a laser beam from a foreign submarine damage the oil frilling platform, and this is what made it sink, or perhaps Fifth Columnists put a hole in the oil drilling rig, and only patched it sufficiently to make it appear as though it was seaworthy.

If this is true, then this is fortunate for the Fifth Columnists, because it will be difficult to investigate this matter.
