We report the first observation at high spatial resolution of long-period quasi-periodic pulsations (QPP) of X-ray radiation during solar flares, made possible with the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI), supported by complementary data at other wavelengths from space-based and ground-based telescopes. Evidence for the presence ported of a transequatorial loop possibly responsible for the detected periodicity connected with its kink mode is found. Our findings suggest that QPP can be interpreted as a periodic pumping of in a compact flaring electrons modulated by oscillations in loop, a magnetically linked and larger loop acting as a long-period magnetohydrodynamic resonator.
