  • Is there any correlation between Tsargrad TV stories and the stories that were pumped out by trolls and bots?
  • Where did the money to pay for Tsargrad TV come from?
  • Where did the money for Rykov’s campaign come from?
  • Where is Jack Hanick now (no sign of him since November 2017, if not longer)?
  • Humpty Dumpty was apparently being run by the same FSB agents that were running a hacker who confessed to one of the DNC break-ins, which would likely mean part of Cozy Bear. Although the credibility of that hacker confession is in doubt, and the FSB agents were arrested by Russian (for treason, for leaking information to US.)
  • There’s a clear (but not necessarily meaningful) link between Rykov’s circle of friends and Humpty Dumpty to be investigated.
  • There’s also a rumor connecting Oleg Deripaska to Humpty Dumpty as a way of getting some sort of revenge on Surkov. At this point I don’t put much stock in that but I’m listing it here for completeness.
