The harness had a mount suited for an action camera and the text "Equipment St. Petersburg" printed on the plastic clasps.

Obviously this is a highly trained Russian spy, which is why it was wearing clasps with "Equipment St. Petersburg" imprinted.

Wait until we unleash our weaponized lobsters.

Please transport the whale to the sanctuary. He’s clearly been spoiled for life in the wild by the Russians. So utterly sick of this constant Russian troublemaking. Don’t let this one innocent whale victim suffer.

Waiting for 'false flag', 'Can't prove it', 'The west is worse' and the usual other responses.

Sickening that so many nations, including those in the 'west', which of course includes the US, use animals of any sort for military activities.

If I were going to train a spy whale I probably wouldn't pick a white one.

Stands out a bit in those gloomy grey northern waters, don't you think?

The you should be equally upset that America uses 75 dolphins for recon and weapon deployment. Who knows how many other creatures are being used for military purposes?

Reminiscent of that old movie "Day of the Dolphin" starring George C. Scott.

Pfft, that's nothing. Trump's already put in the order for sharks with laser beams attached to their heads!

Make a great children’s book. It will sell well in japan, “ why whales should be killed for national security reasons, and we can eat the toxic meat!”

How would the Russians write Санкт-Петербу́рг in English?

Sounds as if the whale was ready to lose its rather tight harness!

Dolphins and other undomesticated species should remain wild. Make the humans do their own work. Leave the wildlife alone.

In a similar way in which you wrote that in Russian.
