See Russia’s massive new gas plant on the Arctic coast

While most of the world is watching the rapidly melting Arctic with increasing alarm and placing the blame squarely on fossil fuels, Russia and its partners in France and China are seeing ruble signs. Billions of them, in fact, to be made selling Arctic fossil fuels to the rest of the world.

Late last year, the Russian energy giant Novatek finished building the northernmost industrial facility on the globe: Yamal LNG, a $27-billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant sitting at 71.2 degrees north at Sabetta, on the bank of the Ob River. The facility and its new port cling to the eastern shore of the gas-rich Yamal Peninsula, which sticks up like a frostbitten thumb into the Kara Sea—that is, in the middle of frozen nowhere.

Russian mercenaries ‘beheaded’ by Mozambique Islamists

As many as ten Russian mercenaries are understood to have been killed, some of them beheaded, in Mozambique where they were fighting an insurgency to advance Moscow’s influence in Africa.

Five fighters from the Wagner Group, linked to a close ally of President Putin, died alongside 20 government troops in an ambush by Islamists in the north of the country, according to Carta de Mocambique newspaper. Three army vehicles were set on fire in the attack on Sunday.

The killings follow the earlier loss of up to five Wagner men fighting jihadists. All the dead were part of a 200-strong deployment that landed in the southern African state from Russia in September, along with three attack helicopters and crew.
