BREAKING WORLD WAR III NEWS: INCENDIARY LEAK OF “PRESIDENTIAL LOCKDOWN ORDER” UPSETS KREMLIN
Russia appears to have taken one giant step closer to turning into North Korea as problems pile up at home, even as the Russian military tries to keep its flailing grip on Ukraine.
The Russian news outlet Baza on Wednesday reported that male members of Russia’s presidential administration have been banned from taking trips abroad—after one staffer apparently failed to ever return.
Citing unnamed sources, the outlet said an order had been issued within the administration that says such a ban will be in effect until restrictions tied to the “mobilization” are lifted.
Even vacations abroad are now reportedly prohibited for those within Vladimir Putin’s circle. “It’s possible that this is a precautionary measure, since there is a rumor among officials in the administration that such a requirement appeared after the ‘escape’ of an employee from one of the departments,” the outlet reported.
The Kremlin has denied the claims, with Dmitry Peskov telling RIA Novosti the report was “downright untrue.”

But the report came as Moscow appeared to take further steps at reining in dissent at home—and ratcheting up the crazy in its war rhetoric.
As the results of a closed opinion poll conducted at the Kremlin’s behest leaked Wednesday—showing a more than two-fold drop in support for continuing the war among ordinary Russians, according to Meduza—Putin’s spy chief appeared to try to up the stakes.
