VERY interesting mini-thread on a "GRU unit" who is the primary villain in not just the debunked "Russian bounties" story but also the plot hole-riddled Skripal poisoning story and numerous other acts of subversion, sabotage and assassination the imperial media have reported on.
Under-probed aspect of bounties fiasco: this was attributed to GRU's Unit 29155, to which Bellingcat spent previous eight months attributing all manner of sabotage and assassinations. If bounty story was completely false, where does this leave their other reports on the 'Unit'?

It is true that Unit 29155's existence was instantly magicked into existence on Wikipedia based solely on anonymously-sourced claims published in a New York Times article. The same NYT whose sources lied about Russian bounties in Afghanistan from that same "Unit 29155".

Replying to @caitoz
There was clearly a timetable here. If there wasn't, why was a wiki page created on such a thin basis?! Bellingcat responded to NYT posting this article stating it would have plenty coming on the Unit soon. Deleted now of course.
