ANALYSIS – PART TWO OF THREE – CONTINUED – In part one “Conspiracy Theories or Valid Questions About Trump Shooting?” I discussed several claims that had been made, and later confirmed or contradicted by law enforcement or the media and asked whether Tucker Carlson may be right to ask if Trump's would-be assassin was a lone gunman or had help.

Here we look at some of the more detailed questions and claims from someone who believes didn't act alone.

First, this observer on Substack.

There are now six Russian amphibious warfare ships in the , adding to a growing Russian fleet there. The three latest landing ships left the Baltic Sea earlier this month. While the Russian Ministry of Defense has said they will take part in naval drills, the amphibious armada could be heading to the Black Sea to support a potential Russian invasion of .

Or they could be a diversion.

According to  The Warzone Wire, three landing ships “from the Russian Navy's Northern Fleet, the Project 775 Ropucha class amphibious warfare ships Olenegorskiy Gornyak and Georgiy Pobedonosets and the Project 11711 Ivan Gren class landing ship Pyotr Morgunov, were spotted entering the Mediterranean earlier today via the Strait of Gibraltar to join another three already on station in the area.”

The Drive describes the growing Russian amphibious force:

The other three Ropucha class ships from the Baltic Fleet, which had preceded the Northern Fleet flotilla on its passage through the English Channel, are reported to have already entered the Mediterranean, two days earlier, via the same route.

Others have tracked the route of the amphibious fleet.

The three landing ships now in the Mediterranean, and the three from the Baltic Fleet that are expected to join them, can carry  tanks and armored vehicles, as well as troops, and equipment, to land directly onto the beach.

But these six amphibious warfare vessels are only part of a larger Russian combat fleet being assembled. The Drive notes:

Previously, the Russian Ministry of Defense had announced that all six of these amphibious warfare vessels would take part in large-scale maneuvers planned in the Mediterranean. Other warships expected to participate are the Slava class cruiser VaryagUdaloy class destroyer Admiral Tributs, and the fleet oiler Boris Butoma, all from the Pacific Fleet.

Meanwhile, another Russian Navy vessel, the Vishnya class intelligence-gathering ship Vasiliy Tatishchev, entered the Mediterranean via the Strait of Gibraltar last week. Its destination is unclear, but it could be a potential participant in the upcoming Russian naval manuevers.

The Drive adds:

…should launch an invasion of Ukraine, some or all of these would be expected to continue to the Black Sea from where they would likely take part in amphibious landings along the country's southern coastlines, especially in the Sea of Azov.

However, their mission could also just be to serve as a diversion for the powerful NATO fleet that is now operating in the eastern Mediterranean.
