Message (by Noviy Choke) in a bottle | Is Wagner Group a part of the New Abwehr? – 8:11 PM 10/1/2018

M.N.: The Boshirov-Chepiga – Dyumin connection (as implied leaders in the operation of rescuing Yanukovych) might have some “low flying” homophobic undercurrents and political purposes: to revive the rumors about the gay relationship between Putin and Dyumin, his former bodyguard. The similarity with the homophobic attacks on Macron are obvious.

M.N.: This is the direct threat from the Demiurge: the substance, “Novichok” or any other, could be used easily, against anyone and at any time. This episode also looks like a device to draw the attention to the issues of Chemical Weapons which always were of the special interest to the Germans, with the New Abwehr retaining or obtaining some supplies. 

Novichok agent – Wikipedia – 5:49 AM 10/2/2018: M.N.: The broad range of actors, from the German Intelligence (and the New Abwehr) to Chechens (or, very likely, the Chechens under the German Intelligence), could be in possession of some amounts of “Novichok” and  they can be viewed as the potential suspects as organisers and masterminds of the Salisbury and Amesbury Poisoning episodes..

Porton Down – Wikipedia

“In 1970, the senior establishment at Porton Down was renamed the Chemical Defence Establishment (CDE) for the next 21 years. Preoccupation with defence against nerve agents continued, but in the 1970s and 1980s, the Establishment was also concerned with studying reported chemical warfare by Iraq against Iran and against its own Kurdishpopulation.[5]

Porton Down was the laboratory where initial samples of the Ebola virus were sent in 1976 during the first confirmed outbreak of the disease in Africa. The laboratory now contains samples of some of the world’s most aggressive pathogens, including Ebola, anthrax and the plague, and is leading the UK’s current research into viral inoculations.[6]

This historical analogy with Otto Skorzeny is striking and most likely, it contains the main clue to those events: the New Abwehr was behind the “Operation Yanukovych” from the beginning to the end. They lifted him with the help of the Manafort’s Jaws, just like a seagull lifts a crab on a beach, only to drop it from the highest highs, in order to break its hard bony shell, and to consume the fresh and delicious crab meat salad for lunch. That’s the Abwehr’s style. 

This must explain, at least in part, the recently reported violent encounter between the two men, Putin and Yanukovich who apparently blamed his loss on Putin and, possibly on the Germans.

So, everything: from the Putin’s poisoning by Dioxin, described, as the hypothesis, earlier in my blogs, to the Yanukovich’s elections, to prosecution of Timoshenko, to snipers on Kiyev rooftops, to panicky escape to Crimea, was, it looks like, designed and managed by the Demiurge in his (unlikely “her”) psycho-historical reality show screenplay.

"С ним президенты не бегут": спасителя Януковича Чепигу подняли на смех

По данным журналиста, именно за эту спецоперацию Чепигу наградили званием Героя России. Канев добавил, что за эвакуацию Януковича звание Героя России получил

  • бывший охранник президента Владимира Путина Алексей Дюмин, а также люди, составившие
  • «костяк» «ЧВК Вагнера». 

“The Wagner Group

itself first showed up in 2014,[1] along with Utkin in the Luhansk region of Ukraine.[25] The company’s name comes from Utkin’s own call sign (“Wagner”), which

he allegedly chose due to a passion for the Third Reich.[27]

Radio Liberty cited insiders as saying that the Slavic Native Faith (a modern Pagan cult) is a faith favored by the leadership of the Wagner Group.[28] In August 2017, the Turkish Yeni Şafak speculated that Utkin was possibly just a figurehead for the company, while the real head of Wagner was someone else”.[29]

History, organization, status[edit]

The founder of the company is reported to be Dmitriy Valeryevich Utkin, who was born in Kirovohrad Oblast (then the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic of the USSR) in 1970.[22][23][24] According to the Security Service of Ukraine′s statement in September 2017, Dmitriy Utkin used to be a Ukrainian citizen.[23] Up until 2013, he was a lieutenant colonel and brigade commander of a special forces (Spetsnaz GRU) unit (the 700th Independent Spetsnaz Detachment of the 2nd Independent Brigade) of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).[25][1][26] He retired in 2013 and began working for the private company Moran Security Group founded by Russian military veterans; the company performed security and training missions around the world, specializing in security against piracy. The same year, senior Moran Security Group managers were involved in setting up a Saint Petersburg-based organization Slavonic Corps that headhunted contractors to “protect oil fields and pipelines” in Syria.[1] Utkin was in Syria as part of the Slavonic Corps and survived its disastrous mission.[25] The Wagner Group itself first showed up in 2014,[1] along with Utkin in the Luhansk region of Ukraine.[25] The company’s name comes from Utkin’s own call sign (“Wagner”), which he allegedly chose due to a passion for the Third Reich.[27]Radio Liberty cited insiders as saying that the Slavic Native Faith (a modern Pagan cult) is a faith favored by the leadership of the Wagner Group.[28] In August 2017, the Turkish Yeni Şafak speculated that Utkin was possibly just a figurehead for the company, while the real head of Wagner was someone else.[29]

Блогеры позже активно обсуждали эту их недоговоренность, а кто-то предполагал, что  гейская тема была специально придумана, чтобы их визит в  Солсбери выглядел в глазах общественности «несерьезным».

Все было направленно на то, чтобы представить «героев» обычными людьми. Путин, заявил, что «путешественники» никакие не офицеры, да и сами они, упирали на то, что обычные «коммерсанты средней руки».

И тут мы узнаем, что простых торговцев БАДами решил защитить в ФСБ! Начато расследование о том, откуда в СМИ попали данные загранпаспортов несчастных туристов. Среди подозреваемых сотрудники полиции.

Писатель Виктор Шендерович нашел этому объяснение:

– ФСБ начало расследование по поводу утечки в прессу личных данных Петрова и Боширова.
Вот как государство заботится о неприкосновенности частной жизни обычных российских геев!

А журналист Аркадий Бабченко не понимает, почему спецорганы не ищут тех, кто «слил» на всеобщее обозрение паспортные данные его и жены в разгар скандала с «воскрешением».

– Вот ориентировка на меня и на мою жену. Здесь все – телефоны, номера паспортов, адрес проживания, адреса прописки, номера карт, номера воинских частей, всё всё. ФСБ не хочет начать проверку?

  • Исполнители преступления известны?

    19 июля в деле Скрипалей появились новые подробности. Британское информационное агентство Press Association сообщило, что Скотланд-Ярд идентифицировал исполнителей покушения. Следователи уверены, что подозреваемые – из России, говорится в сообщении агентства. Однако британский министр по вопросам безопасности Бен Уоллес опроверг эту информацию, назвав ее “дикой спекуляцией”.

Journalist says Skripal suspect helped Yanukovych to flee Ukraine

M.N.: This may mean, hypothetically, that Manafort and Boshirov-Chepiga  are from the same “Yanukovych team”.  This circumstance if true, has some other potential implications: if Boshirov or Chepiga were the long term heads of Yanukovich security, the issues of the associations with both the German and Russian Intelligence Services do arise.

“Мы не собираемся участвовать в спекуляциях по поводу их настоящих имен”, – ответили в Скотленд-Ярде на просьбу DW прокомментировать совместное расследование Bellingcat и The Insider о подозреваемых в отравлении бывшего двойного агента Сергея Скрипаля и его дочери Юлии 4 марта 2018 года в Солсбери. Журналисты-расследователи утверждают, что идентифицировали одного из подозреваемых: его имя не Руслан Боширов, а Анатолий Чепига, и он – полковник ГРУ.

Министр обороны Великобритании Гэвин Уильямсон сначала подтвердил выводы расследования, но затем стер собственное сообщение в Twitter. Тем не менее британская полиция выразила уверенность, что считает “Боширова” и “Петрова” псевдонимами, а источники агентства Reuters по вопросам безопасности, близкие к расследованию, подтвердили верность выводов The Insider и Bellingcat, добавив, что настоящие имена подозреваемых уже известны следователям в Лондоне.

Российской газете “Коммерсант” удалось связаться с жителями села Березовка в Амурской области, в которой долгое время жила семья Чепиг. Знакомые, попросившие не называть их, однозначно опознали “Руслана Боширова” именно как Анатолия Чепигу.

“База ФМС” и другая “дополнительная информация”

Как энтузиастам-расследователям из частного проекта и российским журналистам удалось выйти на след двух офицеров ГРУ? “У нас не было ожиданий, что мы сможем установить их паспортные данные”, – сказал газете The Guardian руководитель Bellingcat Элиот Хиггинс. Однако, по его словам, к ним “стали обращаться люди” с “дополнительной информацией”, и “некоторые данные были очень узкоспециализированными”. Главным источником сведений об обоих подозреваемых, судя по описанию в самом расследовании, стали российские государственные базы данных разных типов.

Скотленд-Ярд считает двоих россиян главными подозреваемыми в покушении на Скрипалей Скотленд-Ярд считает двоих россиян главными подозреваемыми в покушении на Скрипалей

Причастность “Руслана Боширова” (Чепиги) и Александра Петрова к спецслужбам Bellingcat и The Insider установили, по их утверждению, благодаря “базе ФМС” (Федеральная миграционная служба РФ. – Ред.). Возможность, которую в российском МВД отрицают: по базе данных ФМС невозможно определить, является ли человек сотрудником ГРУ или любого другого ведомства, так прокомментировал расследование замглавы МВД РФ Игорь Зубов в интервью российскому агентству “Интерфакс”.

Российские официальные представители критически отзываются о работе Bellingcat, то отрицая его выводы, то называя британский проект, специализиующийся на военных расследованиях, “маскировкой” для западных, прежде всего британских, спецслужб. Одновременно власти РФ, судя по данным СМИ, инициируют уголовные дела против журналистов, причастных к расследованию о возможных отравителях Скрипалей.

Баз данных много, и их можно купить

В опубликованной 26 сентрября третьей части расследования Bellingcat и The Insider речь идет о телефонных справочниках и базах данных по услугам ЖКХ. Их расследователи, как они говорят, скачали в торрент-сетях. Все поиски заняли около месяца. То, что в России за небольшую плату доступны различные базы данных, “знают все взрослые люди в России, особенно те, кто сталкивался с какими-то трудностями”, указывает российский журналист Александр Плющев.

Александр ПлющевАлександр Плющев

“Известно, что на рынке полно баз данных ГИБДД, связанных с автомобилями, с ЖКХ и с банками. Они есть, они продаются на “Горбушке” (рынок в Москве. – Ред.), ими пользуются журналисты – совершенно точно, в том числе, что самое потрясающее, государственных СМИ”, – утверждает Плющев.

В интернете довольно просто найти сайты, где можно за небольшие деньги купить различные государственные базы данных, подтвердил DW и Руслан Левиев, основатель группы активистов Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT). Он, правда, считает, что не следует переоценивать важность таких источников информации: “Самая большая проблема с ними – это то, что эти базы всегда очень старые. Если вам удастся найти в интернете за деньги базу данных, которая актуальна хотя бы на 2010 год – это огромная удача”.

Однако Левиев обратил внимание на то, что в случае с расследованием Bellingcat и The Insider используются не только подобные базы данных, но и фотографии, скан-копии заполненных анкет и т.д. “Подобного я никогда и нигде в интернете не встречал, несмотря на то, что много работал со слитыми в интернет базами данных”, – говорит Левиев.

Информацию об офицерах ГРУ могли найти в даркнете?

Представить, что такая база была бы доступна в интернете, и любой желающий мог бы “пробить по базе” интересующего его человека, Левиеву сложно. “Во-первых, база данных с файлами фотографий паспортов и анкетных данных должна быть невероятных размеров, не меньше нескольких терабайт – все же речь о порядка 100 000 000 записей; во-вторых, в таком случае уже давно много других расследователей постоянно бы пользовались этой же базой, демонстрируя анкетные данные депутатов, министров, их родственников, или скандально известных лиц, таких, как Игорь Гиркин-Стрелков, Сергей Дубинский и другие. Но этого нет”, – пояснил Руслан Левиев.

Руслан ЛевиевРуслан Левиев

Вместе с тем он предположил, что расследователи могли найти человека, который в сети даркнет (анонимная часть интернета с децентрализованной системой связи и шифрованием. – Ред.) “за деньги может анонимно делать выписки из настоящей, актуальной базы данных паспортов, с фотографиями”.

Александра Плющева озадачило упоминание некой базы ФМС: “Что касается базы данных ФМС, я не знаю, существует ли она вообще. То, что упоминается в кейсах Боширова и Петрова, связано с базой “Российский паспорт”. По его словам, речь идет о базе данных МВД России.

“Доступ к ней имеют сотрудники МВД – чуть ли не все. Продается ли она на “Горбушке” или находится в торрентах, я не знаю”, – говорит журналист. При этом он считает, что желающие “могут легко за какую-то мзду или даже бесплатно попросить пробить того или иного человечка”. На уточняющие вопросы DW в Bellingcat на момент публикации не ответили.

Опрошенные DW журналисты полагают, что само использование баз данных не является незаконным. “Если не взламываете эти базы сами, не используйте “знакомства”, чтобы авторизоваться в системе таких баз данных и получить выписку, то вся опасность перекладывается на плечи того, кто эту базу слил”, – добавляет Руслан Левиев. Александр Плющев тоже уверен, что “закон нарушают те, кто их (базы данных. – Ред.) взламывают и выставляют в интернет”.

Bellingcat и The Insider пообещали в скором времени предоставить информацию о втором подозреваемом в отравлении Скрипалей, известном под именем Александра Петрова. Дата публикации пока не называется.

“2:0 в пользу Лондона” – немецкие СМИ об интервью Петрова и Боширова

Чепига получил звание Героя России за эвакуацию Януковича
 

mikenova shared this story from Радио Свобода.

Подозреваемый британской полицией в отравлении Скрипалей Руслан Боширов, он же, по некоторым данным, офицер ГРУ России Анатолий Чепига, возглавлял операцию по эвакуации из Киева президента Украины Виктора Януковича. Об этом в эфире украинского телеканала “Громадське” сообщил российский журналист Сергей Канев, принимавший участие в расследовании The Insider и Bellingcat, благодаря которому в деле и появилась фамилия Чепиги.

Канев рассказал, что Чепига с подразделением спецназа прибыл в резиденцию Януковича “Межигорье” в феврале 2014 года, “находился там” и “охранял его”. По информации журналиста, за операцию по вывозу Януковича из Украины Чепига получил звание героя России. Канев также утверждает, что за эту же операцию то же звание получил бывший охранник Владимира Путина, а ныне губернатор Тульской области Алексей Дюмин.

“Мне также известно, что награды получили люди, которые в дальнейшем составили костяк “частной военной компании Вагнера”, – заявил Канев.

Журналист пообещал, что на днях опубликует детали участия Чепиги в спецоперации по эвакуации экс-президента Украины.

Ранее пресс-секретарь Владимира Путина Дмитрий Песков опроверг сообщения о том, что Чепига получал звание героя.

В то же время Сергей Канев покинул Россию после начала доследственной проверки ФСБ утечки личных данных “Боширова-Чепиги” и второго подозреваемого по делу Скрипалей – Александра Петрова, настоящее имя которого журналисты обещали раскрыть в ближайшее время. Канев опасается, что за его расследование его ждет уголовное преследование.

Бывший сотрудник ГРУ России Сергей Скрипаль и его дочь были отравлены в марте 2018 года в британском городе Солсбери нервно-паралитическим агентом “Новичок”. Им удалось выжить после покушения.

В августе Великобритания назвала имена людей, которых считает исполнителями преступления, – “Руслан Боширов” и “Александр Петров”, обвинив власти России в его организации. В Кремле эти обвинения отвергают.

Позже люди, назвавшиеся именами Боширова и Петрова, выступили в эфире подконтрольного Кремлю телеканала Russia Today. Они отрицали причастность к инциденту, а также какую-либо связь с российской разведкой. С тех пор “Петров” и “Боширов” не выходили на связь со СМИ, их местонахождение остается неизвестным.

Обвиняемый Скотланд-Ярдом в отравлении бывшего полковника ГРУ Минобороны РФ Сергея Скрипаля россиянин Руслан Боширов (которого ряд СМИ называет полковником российской военной разведки Анатолий Чепига) принимал участие в эвакуации с Украины бывшего главы государства Виктора Януковича.

Реклама

Об этом рассказал в интервью украинским СМИ журналист «Центра управления расследованиями» Сергей Канев, покинувший Россию после публикации материалов по «делу Скрипалей».

По его словам, именно за эту операцию Боширов получил звание Героя России. Один из адвокатов Януковича — Виталий Сердюк – категорически опроверг данные об участии российский военных в доставке своего подзащитного в Россию, передает НСН.

Ранее журналистские сообщества The Insider и Bellingcat рассказали, что «Руслана Боширова» на самом деле зовут Анатолий Чепига, и он является полковником Главного управления Генерального штаба ВС РФ (бывшее ГРУ). Кроме того, в 2014 году президент России

Владимир Путин якобы удостоил Чепигу звания Герой России «за выполнение миротворческой миссии».

В воскресенье 4 марта 2018 года 66-летний бывший российский разведчик Сергей Скрипаль и его 33-летняя дочь были обнаружены на скамейке у входа в торговый центр The Maltings в городе Солсбери графства Уилтшир на юго-западе Великобритании.

По данным полиции, Скрипаль и его дочь внезапно почувствовали себя плохо и потеряли сознание. Пострадавшие были госпитализированы под наблюдение экспертов Центра радиационного, химического и экологического мониторинга.

Вскоре Германия, Франция, Канада и США опубликовали совместное заявление, согласившись с выводами правоохранителей Великобритании по делу Скрипалей. Союзники британцев солидарны с тем, что отравили экс-полковника и его дочь сотрудники ГРУ – Александр Петров и Руслан Боширов — , а атака проходила под эгидой Кремля и с одобрения властей РФ.

Москва опровергла причастность к инциденту. В сентябре главный редактор телеканала RTМаргарита Симоньян взяла интервью у Петрова и Боширова. Обвиняемые британским следствием рассказывали, что в Соединенное Королевство они отправились как туристы — чтобы «оторваться».

О себе подозреваемые в отравлении Скрипалей рассказывали немного и неохотно — после интервью о Боширове и Петрове стало известно лишь то, что они являются «предпринимателями средней руки», а их бизнес связан со спортивным питанием.

Вскоре премьер-министр Великобритании Тереза Мэй в ходе заседания 73-й Генассамблеи ООН в Нью-Йорке вновь обвинила Россию во лжи в связи с отравлением в Солсбери.

Британский политик заявила, что Россия стремиться «запутать всех своей отчаянной фальсификацией».

Посольство РФ в Великобритании раскритиковало это заявление, передает ФАН.

«У нас нет ни малейшего желания комментировать очередные агрессивные выпады министра иностранных дел Великобритании Ханта в адрес России, которые не имеют ничего общего с реальностью», — указали в диппредставительстве.

В ходе эскалации «дела Скрипалей» швейцарская газета Tages Anzeiger и нидерландское издание NRC Handelblad сообщили, что правоохранительные органы Королевства Нидерландов при помощи британских спецслужб арестовали весной 2018 года двух российских граждан, которые якобы собирались похитить данные из химической лаборатории в швейцарском городе Шпиц.

Служба военной разведки и безопасности Нидерландов отказалась от комментариев по этому поводу. Служба разведки Швейцарской конфедерации, в свою очередь, сообщила Tages Anzeiger, что «в курсе ситуации с раскрытием и выдворением российских шпионов в Гааге». В материале NRC сообщалось, что аресты российских агентов и шпионов стали результатом сотрудничества различных европейских спецслужб.

Кроме того, по данным голландских правоохранителей, россияне располагали спецоборудованием для взлома компьютерной системы лаборатории в Шпице и «работали на ГРУ». Швейцарские разведчики подчеркнули, что участвовали в операции вместе с коллегами из Нидерландов и Великобритании и смогли предотвратить вторжение в важный объект национальной инфраструктуры.

После этого МИД России вызвал посла Нидерландов в Рене Джонс-Бос, а также представителя Швейцарии в Москве Ива Росье чтобы озвучить им претензию российской стороны к необоснованной «шпиономании» Запада.

«Рене Джонс-Бос была приглашена для беседы в МИД России в связи с продолжающейся кампанией по нагнетанию шпиономании.

Внимание нидерландской стороны было привлечено к недопустимости провоцирования через СМИ спекуляций, в том числе касающихся наиболее острых проблем международной политики, которые могут нанести дополнительный ущерб и без того подорванным двусторонним отношениям», — говорилось в сообщении дипведомства РФ.

Позднее источник в Объединенном командовании НАТО по контрразведке (ACCI) заявил, что Сергей Скрипаль работал на разведку четырех стран-участниц альянса. По словам источника, сотрудничество Скрипаля с разведслужбами НАТО продолжалось до 2017 года. При этом он якобы выдавал им информацию о действующих на территории других стран российских шпионах.

Что касается Москвы, то пресс-секретарь президента России Дмитрий Песков заявил, что в Кремле не хотят больше вести дискуссию об отравлении Скрипалей.

«Мы не будем больше вести разговор со средствами массовой информации. BBC не может что-то подтвердить, BBC может выдвинуть предположение или еще что-то. И, поскольку вся дискуссия ведется на уровне СМИ, мы, как Кремль, больше не хотим в этой дискуссии участвовать», — сказал представитель главы российского государства.

Russia Says Photos Don’t Prove Its Spy Was Linked to Skripal Case

FILE PHOTO: Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov looks on during a visit to the Mazda Sollers Manufacturing Rus joint venture plant of Sollers and Japanese Mazda in Vladivostok, Russia September 10, 2018. Valery Sharifulin/TASS Host Photo Agency/Pool via REUTERSReuters

By Andrey Ostroukh and Andrey Kuzmin

MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Kremlin said on Friday a likeness between a Russian intelligence colonel and a suspect in the Skripal poisoning case does not prove they are the same person, comparing the resemblance to that of impersonators posing as Lenin.

Former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a public bench in the English city of Salisbury in March. Britain says they were poisoned with a nerve agent administered by Russian intelligence officers. A woman later died from what British police say was contact with the poison which her partner found in a discarded perfume bottle.

Russia denies any involvement in the affair, which has deepened its international isolation.

Moscow says two Russian men captured on surveillance footage near the scene of the poisoning were tourists visiting Salisbury twice during a weekend trip to Britain, an explanation London says is so far-fetched as to all but prove Russia’s involvement.

Investigative website Bellingcat this week published a picture of a decorated Russian military intelligence colonel it named as Anatoliy Chepiga who resembles one of the men spotted in the surveillance footage.

“We don’t know to what extent we can make any formal conclusions about who looks like whom, are they alike, where they lived, where they grew up,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

“On Red Square there are still 10 Stalins and 15 Lenins running around, and they look remarkably like the originals,” he said, referring to people who dress up as Soviet leaders to pose for photographs with tourists.

Peskov said in order to draw any conclusions, the Russian authorities needed verified information from British officials about the Skripal case, something he said London has been consistently withholding.

“We do not want to participate any more in the propagation of this issue as a partner of the media,” said Peskov.

Tragedy? Farce? Confusion? The Method Behind That Russian Poisoning Interview – The New York Times
 

mikenova shared this story .

MOSCOW — The reviews were not kind when two Russians accused of slipping into England and poisoning a turncoat spy appeared on TV to profess their innocence. They were, the men said, just a couple of sports nutritionists taking a weekend jaunt to a cathedral town.

“One of the biggest information warfare blunders ever,” declared a BBC diplomatic editor. Others said the interview on Russian state television was a skit worthy of Monty Python. The British government said it was “an insult to the public’s intelligence.”

But foreigners rolling their eyes and dismissing the men’s account as patently implausible may be missing the point. For Russia, the yardstick of success for the interview was not credibility.

“It is a slap in the face of the West,” said Peter Pomerantsev, a fellow at the London School of Economics and author of “Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible,” an account of his time as a television producer in Moscow. Russia, said Mr. Pomerantsev, “gave up a long time ago on trying to convince anybody that it is telling the truth.”

But the Kremlin works hard to confuse and distract, and to convince everyone, whether inside Russia or beyond, that President Vladimir V. Putin is so strong he can set his own truth, no matter how hard it may be to believe.

From Moscow’s viewpoint, the interview on RT, a Kremlin-funded network formerly known as Russia Today, was a masterpiece of in-your-face defiance. It also reprised the greatest hits of Russian propaganda under Mr. Putin.

In just 25 minutes, the interview distilled the favorite tropes of the Kremlin’s propaganda machine: Russia always gets blamed by the West for crimes it did not commit. Its people thirst for a Europe of churches and traditional culture, but are frustrated in their high-minded aspirations by obstacles thrown up abroad, in this case the English weather.

There was even a cameo role for the Kremlin’s old standby, homophobia, with heavy hints that the two men accused by Britain, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, may well be gay and therefore could not possibly be Russian military intelligence officers deployed, as Britain says they were, for the manly business of assassination.

Konstantin von Eggert, a political commentator and former talk show host on independent television, said the appearance of the two men on RT was not really meant to convince anybody of Russia’s innocence in the Salisbury attack but only to deliver a message to foreign critics and domestic foes that “nothing you say or do will change anything.”

The Kremlin, he said, “is telling the West: ‘Yes, we did it, yes, we messed up, and yes, we will do it again if we want.’”

That Mr. Putin had a hand in orchestrating the interview was clear from the fact that, a day before it was broadcast by RT on Thursday, he declared Mr. Petrov and Mr. Boshirov innocent of any crimes and, speaking at an economic conference in Vladivostok, urged them to come forward to tell their story. They swiftly obliged.

By the end of the same day, they had contacted Margarita Simonyan, the RT editor in chief, and sat down in front of the camera to answer a series of softball questions. These did not include the most obvious question: How did the hotel room where the men stayed in London come to have traces of Novichok, the nerve agent used against Sergei V. Skripal, a former Russian spy.

Mr. Skripal survived the attack, and Mr. Putin’s role has set off speculation that he may have ordered military commanders to make Mr. Boshirov and Mr. Petrov appear on television to punish them for their bungling performance in Salisbury, England.

Mr. Putin, however, has no history of publicly sanctioning, even less of humiliating, his so-called siloviki, the military and security service officials who dominate his administration, no matter how disastrously incompetent or corrupt they or their underlings might be.

Instead of killing Mr. Skripal, the nerve agent attack landed him and his daughter, Yulia, in the hospital, along with a British police officer and a Salisbury resident — and left Moscow open to condemnation for an act of state terrorism with a military grade chemical weapon.

Then, on top of that, according to British investigators, the two men discarded a vial that carried the Novichok so carelessly that a British woman died after her boyfriend found it months later and, thinking it was perfume, brought the bottle home as a gift.

In the RT interview, Mr. Petrov and Mr. Boshirov insisted that they had such a keen interest in medieval ecclesiastical architecture and burning desire to see Salisbury’s cathedral that they traveled to Britain for a weekend getaway that included two separate trips to Salisbury and two nights in a grungy London hotel. They firmly denied any connection to Russian military intelligence, now called the G.U. but until recently known as the G.R.U.

Their account — which included claims of knee-deep slush and “transport collapse” that forced them to abandon a first visit to Salisbury on March 3 and try again on March 4, the day of the nerve agent attack — struck many Britons as so risible that a columnist in The Guardian suggested that “comedy is now diplomacy by other means.”

There was some snow in Salisbury at the time but none of the weather-induced “havoc” cited by Mr. Petrov and nothing that might normally deter two fit Russian men accustomed to harsh winters from walking a few hundred yards from the railway station to the cathedral. And why, if they were so keen to see the cathedral, did they head in the opposition direction from the station and wander into Mr. Skripal’s neighborhood on the other side of town?

“The whole situation is some kind of extraordinary coincidence — that’s all,” Mr. Petrov told RT, “What are we guilty of?”

Their story certainly did not win over many people in Britain and elsewhere, or help burnish Russia’s image.

The interview also left many Russians, even some sympathetic to the Kremlin, shaking their heads. It was so bizarre that a television critic, Arina Borodina, claimed that Ms. Simonyan, the RT editor, had not really met the two men and that footage of her asking them questions had been spliced together with their answers, delivered in a secret location under supervision.

Jakub Kalensky, who leads efforts to counter disinformation at a European Union strategic communication unit in Brussels, said the widely panned interview on RT suggested that Russia’s “message may simply be this: ‘We just don’t care how credible or incredible what we say sounds.’”

But the two men did manage to build a high — if not very believable — wall of denial. And they also “succeeded in turning the tragedy in Salisbury into a farce,” said Mr. Pomerantsev, the former Russian television producer.

Still, on Saturday, Russian claims that Mr. Petrov and Mr. Boshirov were innocent, fun-loving civilians took a blow when Novaya Gazeta, an opposition Russian newspaper, reported that the Moscow telephone number listed for Mr. Petrov in official records belonged to the Russian Defense Ministry.

And an investigation by Bellingcat, an online platform, found that there is no record of either Mr. Boshirov or Mr. Petrov in an official database of residential and passport information before 2009, when they were issued internal passports under the names they now use. It said this suggested that the two men had previously used other names and that their current names are “cover identities for operatives of one of the Russian security services.” Mr. Petrov’s official file, Bellingcat said, is marked “top secret.”

The overriding message from the RT interview, as with all of Russia’s responses to foreign accusations against the country, was that blameless Russians have again fallen victim to Western lies and prejudice. In a near-permanent state of high-dudgeon over Western accusations of misbehavior, Russia invariably responds to criticism by condemning the critic.

Just this week, the Foreign Ministry summoned the Swiss and Dutch ambassadors to Moscow to complain that their countries were damaging relations after reports the Netherlands expelled two Russian spies accused of plotting cyber-sabotage of a Swiss defense laboratory analyzing the nerve agent used in Salisbury.

In their interview, Mr. Petrov and Mr. Boshirov adopted the same plaintive tone used by Mr. Putin and his officials in response to past accusations. Among them: that Russian missiles shot down an airliner in July 2014 over eastern Ukraine; that Russian troops supported a bloody separatist rebellion there; and that Russian hackers meddled in the 2016 presidential election in the United States.

“We just want to be left in peace,” Mr. Boshirov said, demanding that Britain apologize for all the grief it has caused him and Mr. Petrov.

Correction:

An earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to the nerve agent Novichok. It is a chemical weapon, not a biological one.

Journalist says Skripal suspect helped Yanukovych to flee Ukraine

M.N.: This may mean, hypothetically, that Manafort and Boshirov-Chepiga  are from the same “Yanukovych team”.  This circumstance if true, has some other potential implications: if Boshirov or Chepiga were the long term heads of Yanukovich security, the issues of the associations with both the German and Russian Intelligence Services do arise.

Journalist says Skripal suspect helped Yanukovych to flee Ukraine

Russian intelligence officer Anatoliy Chepiga, earlier named by UK police as Ruslan Boshirov, a suspect in poisoning of ex-Russian military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in the UK, may have participated in the evacuation of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych from Ukraine in February 2014.

Serhiy Kaniev, the journalist who took part in the Skipal investigation of Russian The Insider and British Bellingcat, told Ukrainian news outlet Hromadske that Chepiga allegedly headed the operation to evacuate Yanukovych to Russia.

Yanukovych fled Ukraine on Feb. 23, days after a mass shooting of protesters by his security forces and the end of EuroMaidan Revolution. He was first transported to Crimea, and then to the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don.

Chepiga was identified by the British investigative team Bellingcat on Sept. 26. as a highly decorated colonel of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence service. Bellingcat also said Chepiga had won Russia’s highest state award, the Hero of the Russian Federation medal. Chepiga is one of the two main suspects in the poisoning of ex-intelligence agent Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

“Chepiga took part in Yanukovych’s evacuation to Russia,” Kaniev told Hromadske on Oct. 1. “At least this is what my sources have evidenced. He and his special forces subdivision were at Yanukovych’s residence Mezhyhirya. He was there, he guarded him. From there they transported him to Crimea and then to Russia.”

Kaniev said that the state award was granted to Chepiga for his participation in Yanukovych’s evacuation.

A former security guard of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Alexei Dyumin, also received the same state award for an operation in Crimea, Kaniev said.

Kaniev was reported by Ukrainian media to have fled Russia on Sept. 29.

Yanukovych has been on trial in Obolon district court in absentia since May 2017 on charges of high treason.

Skripal suspect Boshirov reportedly involved in “evacuation” of Yanukovych to Russia – Journalist
 

mikenova shared this story from News Agency UNIAN.

The prosecutor in the Yanukovych treason case, Ruslan Kravchenko, said that he could neither confirm nor deny the participation of Chepiga-Boshirov in the “evacuation” of the ex-president.

One of the suspects in the poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripal, “Ruslan Boshirov,” who was identified by investigative-journalism website Bellingcat as Colonel of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (also known as GRU) Anatoliy Chepiga, reportedly headed an operation to “evacuate” ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to Russia amid Euromaidan events in February 2014.

“Chepiga-Boshirov took part in the evacuation of Yanukovych to Russia. At least my sources claim so. He and his special forces unit arrived at the residence of Yanukovych in Mezhyhirya. He was there, guarding him [Yanukovych]. They transported him from there to Crimea and further to Russia,” former Russian journalist of the Center for Investigation Management Sergey Kanev, who took part in a probe by The Insider and Bellingcat into the suspects in the Skripals case told Ukraine’s Hromadske news outlet.

According to Kanev, it was for that special operation that Chepiga was decorated the title of “Hero of Russia.” The investigator said that Alexey Dyumin, a former security guard of Russian President Vladimir Putin, also received the “Hero of Russia” award for the “evacuation” of Yanukovych from Ukraine.

“Then that man worked for the Ministry of Defense, and now he is governor of Tula region. Everyone speaks about Dyumin as Putin’s successor. I also know that the people who later formed the backbone of Private Military Company (PMC) Wagner also got awards for Yanukovych’s evacuation,” Kanev said.

The journalist promised that he would publish a detailed investigation into the facts of Chepiga-Boshirov’s participation in a special operation concerning the flight of Yanukovych from Ukraine.

Yanukovych’s lawyer, Alexander Goroshinsky, who recently joined the case, told Hromadske that he knew nothing about Russian special operations forces’ involvement in the “evacuation” of Yanukovych.

He also said he did know anyone with such names as Chepiga and Boshirov.

“I have not studied this issue. There is nothing in the materials given to the court on this. I haven’t read all the materials, but in those which I have, I haven’t read anything [about this,]” the lawyer said.

The prosecutor in the Yanukovych treason case, Ruslan Kravchenko, said that he could neither confirm nor deny the participation of Chepiga-Boshirov in the “evacuation” of the ex-president, because the investigators were not aware who of the Russians had participated in that operation.

Investigative journalists also found out that Chepiga was a highly decorated GRU officer with the “Hero of Russia” title for participation in the Chechen war and a certain “peacekeeping mission” in 2014, which is probably the Russian invasion of Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

The Incredible Case of Boshirov and Petrov’s Visas
 

mikenova shared this story from Craig Murray.

The Metropolitan Police made one statement in the Skripal case which is plainly untrue; they claimed not to know on what kind of visa Boshirov and Petrov were travelling. As they knew the passports they used, and had footage of them coming through the airport, that is impossible. The Border Force could tell them in 30 seconds flat.

To get a UK visa Boshirov and Petrov would have had to attend the UK Visa Application Centre in Moscow. There not only would their photographs be taken, but their fingerprints would have been taken and, if in the last few years, their irises scanned. The Metropolitan Police would naturally have obtained their fingerprints from the Visa Application.

One thing of which we can be certain is that their fingerprints are not on the perfume bottle or packaging found in Charlie Rowley’s home. We can be certain of that because no charges have been brought against the two in relation to the death of Dawn Sturgess, and we know the police have their fingerprints. The fact of there being no credible evidence, according to either the Metropolitan Police or the Crown Prosecution Service, to link them to the Amesbury poisoning, has profound implications.

Why the Metropolitan Police were so coy about telling us what kind of visa the pair held, points to a wider mystery. Why were they given the visas in the first place, and what story did they tell to get them? It is not easy for a Russian citizen, particularly an economically active male, to get past the UK Border Agency. The visa application process is very intrusive. They have to produce evidence of family and professional circumstances, including employment and address, evidence of funds, including at least three months of bank statements, and evidence of the purpose of the visit. These details are then actively checked out by the Visa Department.

If they had told the story to the visa section they told to Russia Today, that they were freelance traders in fitness products wanting to visit Salisbury Cathedral, they would have been refused a visa as being candidates for overstaying. They would have been judged not to have sufficiently stable employment in Russia to ensure they would return. So what story did Petrov and Boshirov give on their visa application, why were they given a visa, and what kind of visa? And why do the British authorities not want us to know the answer to these questions?

Which brings us to the claims of neo-conservative propaganda website Bellingcat. They claim together with the Russian Insider website to have obtained documentary evidence that Petrov and Boshirov’s passports were of a series issued only to Russian spies, and that their applications listed GRU headquarters as their address.

There are some problems with Bellingcat’s analysis. The first is that they also quote Russian website fontanka.ru as a source, but fontanka.ru actually say the precise opposite of what Bellingcat claim – that the passport number series is indeed a civilian one and civilians do have passports in that series.

Fontanka also state it is not unusual for the two to have close passport numbers – it merely means they applied together. On other points, fontanka.ru do confirm Bellingcat’s account of another suspected GRU officer having serial numbers close to those of Boshirov and Petrov.

But there is a bigger question of the authenticity of the documents themselves. Fontanka.ru is a blind alley – they are not the source of the documents, just commenting on them, and Bellingcat are just attempting the old trick of setting up a circular “confirmation”. Russian Insider is neither Russian nor an Insider. Its name is a false claim and it consists of a combination of western “experts” writing on Russia, and reprints from the Russian media. It has no track record of inside access to Russian government secrets or documents, and nor does Bellingcat.

What Bellingcat does have is a track record of shilling for the security services. Bellingcat claims its purpose is to clear up fake news, yet has been entirely opaque about the real source of its so-called documents.

MI6 have almost 40 officers in Russia, running hundreds of agents. The CIA has a multiple of that. They pool their information. Both the UK and US have large visa sections whose major function is the analysis of Russian passports, their types and numbers and what they tell about the individual.

We are to believe that Boshirov and Petrov were GRU agents whose identity was plainly obvious from their passports, who had no believable cover identities, but that neither the visa department nor MI6 (which two cooperate closely and all the time) knew they were giving visas to GRU agents. Yet this information was readily available to Bellingcat?

I do not know if the two are agents or just tourists. But the claimed evidence they were agents is, if genuine, so obvious that the two would have been under close surveillance throughout their stay in the UK. If the official story is true, then the failures of the UK visa department and MI6 are abject and shameful. As is the failure to take simple precautions for the Skripals’ security, like the inexplicable absence of CCTV covering the house of Sergei Skripal, an important ex-agent and defector supposedly under British protection.

A further thought. We are informed that Boshirov and Petrov left a trace of novichok in their hotel bedroom. How likely is it, really, that, the day before the professional assassination attempt, which involved handling an agent with which any contact could kill you, Boshirov and Petrov would prepare, not by resting, but by an all night drugs and sex session? Would you really not want the steadiest possible hand the next day? Would you really invite a prostitute into the room with the novichok perfume in it, and behave in a way that led to complaints and could have brought you to official notice?

Is it not astonishing that nobody in the corporate and state media has written that this behaviour is at all unlikely, while scores of “journalists” have written that visiting Salisbury as a tourist, and returning the next day because the visit was ruined by snow, would be highly unlikely?

To me, even more conclusively, we were informed by cold war propagandists like ex White House staffer Dan Kaszeta that the reason the Skripals were not killed is that novichok is degraded by water. To quote Kaszeta “Soap and water is quite good at decontaminating nerve agents”.

In which case it is extremely improbable that the agents handling the novichok, who allegedly had the novichok in their bedroom, would choose a hotel room which did not have an en suite bathroom. If I spilt some novichok on myself I would not want to be queuing in the corridor for the shower. The GRU may not be big on health and safety, but the idea that their agents chose not to have basic washing facilities available while handling the novichok is wildly improbable.

The only link of Boshirov and Petrov to the novichok is the trace in the hotel room. The identification there of a microscopic trace of novichok came from a single swab, all other swabs were negative, and the test could not be repeated even on the original positive sample. For other reasons given above, I absolutely doubt these two had novichok in that bedroom. Who they really are, and how much the security services knew about them, remain open questions.

Post-war period[edit]

When the Second World War ended, the advanced state of German technology regarding the organophosphorous nerve agents, such as tabunsarin and soman, had surprised the Allies, who were eager to capitalise on it. Subsequent research took the newly discovered German nerve agents as a starting point, and eventually VX nerve agent was developed at Porton Down in 1952.[5]

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, research and development at Porton Down was aimed at providing Britain with the means to arm itself with a modern nerve agent-based capability and to develop specific means of defence against these agents. In the end these aims came to nothing on the offensive side because of the decision to abandon any sort of British chemical warfare capability in favour of nuclear weapons. On the defensive side there were years of difficult work to develop the means of prophylaxis, therapy, rapid detection and identification, decontamination, and more effective protection of the body against nerve agents, capable of exerting effects through the skin, the eyes and respiratory tract.[5]

Scientist looking at containers of liquid at Porton Down

Tests were carried out on servicemen to determine the effects of nerve agents on human subjects, with one recorded death due to a nerve gas experiment. There have been persistent allegations of unethical human experimentation at Porton Down, such as those relating to the death of Leading Aircraftman Ronald Maddison, aged 20, in 1953. Maddison was taking part in sarin nerve agent toxicity tests; sarin was dripped onto his arm and he died shortly afterwards.

In the 1950s, the station, now renamed the Chemical Defence Experimental Establishment (CDEE), became involved with the development of CS, a riot-control agent, and took an increasing role in trauma and wound ballistics work. Both these facets of Porton Down’s work had become more important because of the unrest and increasing violence in Northern Ireland.[5]

On 1 August 1962, Geoffrey Bacon, a scientist at the Microbiological Research Establishment, died from an accidental infection of the plague bacterium Yersinia pestis. In the same month an autoclave exploded, shattering two windows. Both incidents generated considerable media coverage at the time.[5]

In 1970, the senior establishment at Porton Down was renamed the Chemical Defence Establishment (CDE) for the next 21 years. Preoccupation with defence against nerve agents continued, but in the 1970s and 1980s, the Establishment was also concerned with studying reported chemical warfare by Iraq against Iran and against its own Kurdish population.[5]

Porton Down was the laboratory where initial samples of the Ebola virus were sent in 1976 during the first confirmed outbreak of the disease in Africa. The laboratory now contains samples of some of the world’s most aggressive pathogens, including Ebola, anthrax and the plague, and is leading the UK’s current research into viral inoculations.[6]

2-inch mortar trials, 1917

Porton Down opened in 1916 as the War Department Experimental Station, shortly renamed to the Royal Engineers Experimental Station, for testing chemical weapons in response to German use of this means of war in 1915. The laboratory’s remit was to conduct research and development regarding chemical weapons agents used by the British armed forces in the First World War, such as chlorinemustard gas, and phosgene.[4]

Work at Porton started in March 1916. At the time, only a few cottages and farm buildings were scattered on the downs at Porton and Idmiston. By May 1917, the focus for anti-gas defence and respirator development had moved from London to Porton Down, and by 1918, the original two huts had become a large hutted camp with 50 officers and 1,100 other ranks. After the Armistice in 1918, Porton Down was reduced to a skeleton staff.[5]

Porton Down is a science park, situated just northeast of the village of Porton, near Salisbury in Wiltshire, England. It is home to two British government facilities: a site of the Ministry of Defence‘s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) – known for over 100 years as one of the UK’s most secretive and controversial military research facilities, occupying 7,000 acres (2,800 ha)[1] – and a site of Public Health England.[2] It is also home to other private and commercial science organisations, and is expanding to attract other companies.

Novichok poisoning: Russia’s bizarre new reason why suspected nerve agent assassins were in Salisbury
 

mikenova shared this story from Mirror – UK News.

Suspected nerve agent assassin Alexander Petrov visited Salisbury to attend a nutrition seminar, according to a bizarre new account in Russia.

Rather than being connected to the Novichok attack, he is a supplier to “elite” Russians of a brand of sports supplements, it is claimed.

These new claims come from a university professor who says she has known Petrov, 40, as a teacher and a friend.

The academic remained anonymous and wouldn’t say which university she taught at to avoid Petrov’s life being ‘in danger’.

Alexander Petrov is suspected to be an alias used by a GRU military intelligence staffer to obtain a UK visa and travel to Wiltshire at the time when Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned.

But the professor insists he was in Salisbury for a seminar at Porton Down science park.

This extraordinary new account comes from Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP) at a time when Russia has been put on the back foot by mounting evidence that Petrov – and his companion Ruslan Boshirov – are military spies.

The university professor calls him Sasha, the fond name for Alexander in Russia.

“In Salisbury there is the well-known Porton Down chemical laboratory, a military technology park,” she said, according to KP.

“But at [Porton Down] they also develop sports nutrition.

“There are chemicals involved in it after all.

“In Salisbury there was an event, something like a seminar for people engaged in the distribution of this nutrition.”

The professor – who says she taught English to the man claiming to be Petrov – now lives in Germany.

She refused to state which university Petrov had attended but said she gave him extra tuition at home after classes.

“I can’t say (because) then you will find out all the information about Sasha,” she said.

“What if his life is now in danger?

“I will only say that this university is not in Moscow.

“Petrov studied in the law department, he was dreaming of becoming a criminal investigator.”

She revealed he came from a military family and declared: “I am only five years older than him, so we got on well and even became friends.”

The woman said her former university colleagues in Russia all recognised Petrov but “they are afraid and refused to talk”.

Claiming he moved with ease among elite Russians, she said: “Sasha is into (sports nutrition) and distributing it in very serious circles.”

In his RT interview, Petrov claimed he was a mid-ranking businessman involved in sports nutrition – but he did not mention a seminar as the reason he travelled twice in two days from London to Salisbury, home of Skripal.

The professor said that he was always into a “healthy lifestyle” and regularly went to the gym and took nutritional supplements.

She seemed keen to deny the British charges that he is a GRU agent.

“Of course not,” she said. “He is not a poisoner. He, Sasha Petrov, is close to the elite.

“He was selling this nutrition in these circles.

“A healthy lifestyle is very popular among high-ranking individuals.”

She did not identify which elite circles he moved in but she implied the price was beyond the means of ordinary Russians.

Last week the pro-Kremlin media interviewed a former teacher of Anatoliy Chepiga, unmasked as the real identity of Boshirov.

Alexander Borzhko, his commander at the Far Eastern Military Command Academy (DVOKU) in Blagoveshchensk, insisted Chepiga was “not trained for secret-service operations” such as that allegedly carried out in Salisbury.

Hot air balloon hits pylon in Germany, with six rescued
 

mikenova shared this story from BBC News – Home.

A hot air balloon became tangled in an electricity pylon in western Germany, firefighters have said, stranding six passengers 65m (213ft) above ground.

The balloon became caught at about 17:30 local time (15:30 GMT) on Sunday, authorities in the city of Bottrop said.

Passengers were individually abseiled to safety in a six-hour operation, and all were taken to hospital as a precaution.

The cause of the crash is not known.

The balloon struck the top of the pylon on Essener Street in the south of the city, a local fire brigade press release said.

Firefighters called up to the passengers by megaphone, before they managed to get in touch by phone.

Only the balloon itself hit the wires, rather than the basket – protecting all aboard from the electricity.

Power to the pylon was shut off as firefighters climbed the mast and secured the basket.

Each passenger was then rappelled down one by one.

Nobody was hurt in the crash, although two suffered slight shock.

Work got underway on Monday to remove the balloon from the wires, while authorities have launched an investigation into the cause of the crash.

BERLIN (AP) — German police have arrested seven men on suspicion of forming a “far-right terrorist organization” in the eastern city of Chemnitz and planning to carry out attacks against foreigners and political enemies, officials said Monday.

Six of the men, all German citizens aged between 20 and 30, were arrested Monday by tactical police units in Saxony, the state in which Chemnitz is located, and Bavaria, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

The men are alleged to have formed a group calling itself “Revolution Chemnitz,” together with a seventh suspect who was arrested in a separate case last month. The seventh man, identified only as 31 year-old German citizen Christian K. for privacy reasons, is alleged to have been the group’s leader.

Prosecutors said the men wanted to “carry out violent and armed attacks against foreigners and political enemies” as part of a plan to overthrow Germany’s democratic order.

Five of the men — Christian K. and four others identified only as Sten E., Martin H., Marcel W. and Sven W. — allegedly attacked several foreigners in the center of Chemnitz on Sept. 14, armed with bottles, weighted “sap” gloves and an electric stun device. Prosecutors said the attack was a ‘test run’ for another attack the men planned for Oct. 3, Germany’s national unity day.

Prosecutors didn’t specify whether the group was linked to anti-foreigner violence that erupted after a German man was killed in Chemnitz in August. A 23-year-old Syrian is being held on suspicion of manslaughter in that case. An Iraqi man is also being sought over the killing.

A kosher restaurant was also attacked on the sidelines of one protest, with masked men throwing stones and bottles and yelling “Jewish pig, get out of Germany.”

BERLIN, Oct 1 (Reuters) – German police detained six men on Monday suspected of forming a far-right militant organisation which assaulted foreigners in the eastern city of Chemnitz and planned attacks on politicians and civil servants, the federal prosecutor’s office said.

Some 100 policemen backed by special commando units detained the six suspects aged 28 to 30, acting on warrants issued by the Federal Court of Justice on Sept. 28, the prosecutor said.

The men are accused of forming “Revolution Chemnitz”, an organisation named after the city where the fatal stabbing of a German man blamed on migrants in August prompted the worst far-right violence in Germany in decades.

BERLIN, Oct 1 (Reuters) – German police detained six men on Monday suspected of forming a far-right militant organisation which assaulted foreigners in the eastern city of Chemnitz and planned attacks on politicians and civil servants, the federal prosecutor’s office said.

Some 100 policemen backed by special commando units detained the six suspects aged 28 to 30, acting on warrants issued by the Federal Court of Justice on Sept. 28, the prosecutor said.

The men are accused of forming “Revolution Chemnitz”, an organisation named after the city where the fatal stabbing of a German man blamed on migrants in August prompted the worst far-right violence in Germany in decades.

“Based on the information we have so far, the suspects belong to the hooligan, skinhead and neo-Nazi scene in the area of Chemnitz and considered themselves leading figures in the right-wing extremist scene in Saxony,” prosecutors said.

The group had planned to attack senior civil servants and politicians, they said. The men were arrested in the state of Saxony, where Chemnitz lies, and the southern region of Bavaria.

“In the course of further investigations we encountered tangible indications that the organisation pursued terrorist goals.”

The far-right violence in Chemnitz, where skinheads hounded migrants and performed the illegal Hitler salute in August, exposed deep divisions over Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision in 2015 to welcome almost one million, mostly Muslim asylum seekers.

The events in the eastern city also strained Merkel’s coalition government.

Her conservatives and their Social Democrat (SPD) junior coalition partners could not agree what to do with the head of the BfV domestic spy agency, who questioned the authenticity of a video showing skinheads chasing migrants and was accused of harbouring far-right views.

The partners last month reached a compromise to transfer BfV chief Hans Georg Maassen to the interior ministry, ending a row that almost felled their six-month-old government.

A seventh suspect, believed to be the leader of the group, was detained on Sept. 14 on charges of threatening public peace.

The GBA did not say whether his arrest had led to uncovering the organisation and its other members.

How European politicians could be corrupted – the mysterious “Habsburg group” and their lobbying for Ukraine
 

mikenova shared this story .

With the confession of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager, the American special prosecutor Robert Mueller has recorded his biggest success so far. Manafort has admitted what Mueller’s investigators uncovered in laborious, month-long work: a criminal construct of lobbying activities in the interests of the former Ukrainian government under the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych, accompanied by money laundering and tax fraud. A total of $ 60 million flowed from Ukraine to Manafort, who unlawfully did not register as a lobbyist for a foreign government. Despite his confession, he is expected to remain behind bars for many years.

Gusenbauer, Prodi and Kwasniewski

Weder politisch noch juristisch aufgearbeitet ist jedoch der europäische Zweig dieses Lobbying-Skandals: Weitgehend unbeachtet geblieben ist der Umstand, dass Manafort mit seinem Schuldbekenntnis vom Freitag auch eine Reihe von ehemaligen europäischen Spitzenpolitikern schwer belastet hat. Unter ihnen sind der frühere österreichische Bundeskanzler und SPÖ-Vorsitzende Alfred Gusenbauer, der einstige EU-Kommissions-Präsident und italienische Ministerpräsident Romano Prodi, der ehemalige polnische Präsident Alexander Kwasniewski sowie ein weiteres, noch unbekanntes Mitglied der Lobbyisten-Gruppe, das es 2013 sogar schaffte, seine Ansichten bei einem Treffen mit dem damaligen amerikanischen Präsidenten Barack Obama einzubringen.

Manafort gab der illustren Gruppe laut amerikanischen Gerichtsakten den Namen «Habsburg-Gruppe». Als die Vorwürfe gegen Gusenbauer und seine Gefährten im Februar erstmals publik wurden, wurden sie von den Betroffenen stark relativiert oder ganz abgestritten. Mit Manaforts Geständnis gibt es jedoch keinen Grund mehr, an ihrer Stichhaltigkeit zu zweifeln. In der aussergerichtlichen Vereinbarung (Plea Agreement), die der Angeklagte mit dem Sonderstaatsanwalt traf, gab Manafort zu, in den Jahren 2012/13 über Offshore-Konten diskrete Zahlungen in der Höhe von gesamthaft mehr als zwei Millionen Euro an die «Habsburg-Gruppe» arrangiert zu haben. Um europäische Steuergesetze zu umgehen, habe der Vertrag mit der «Habsburg-Gruppe» fälschlicherweise festgehalten, dass deren Tätigkeit nur ausserhalb Europas stattfinden werde. In Wirklichkeit nahmen Gusenbauer, Prodi und Kwasniewski in Europa an diversen Konferenzen teil, um dort zum Thema Ukraine zu sprechen. Dass sie dabei von Manafort und letztlich von der Regierung Janukowitsch bezahlt wurden, hielten sie vor der Öffentlichkeit verborgen.

Eklatanter Interessenkonflikt

Besonders stossend ist der Fall des früheren polnischen Staatsoberhaupts Kwasniewski. Er erhielt im Juni 2012 vom damaligen Präsidenten des Europäischen Parlamentes, Martin Schulz, den Auftrag, zusammen mit einem britischen Politiker eine Monitoring-Mission in der Ukraine zu leiten. Es ging darum, das rechtsstaatlich fragwürdige Gerichtsverfahren gegen die inhaftierte ukrainische Oppositionsführerin Julia Timoschenko zu verfolgen, deren Freilassung damals viele westliche Politiker forderten. Die Berufung Kwasniewskis erscheint im Nachhinein als Fehlgriff. Schulz pries den Polen damals als weitherum respektierte Persönlichkeit von hoher internationaler Reputation. Doch in Wirklichkeit hatte sich Kwasniewski in einen unauflösbaren Interessenkonflikt verstrickt, indem er laut den amerikanischen Gerichtsakten gleichzeitig Geld von der ukrainischen Regierung annahm, die Timoschenko ins Gefängnis geworfen hatte. Seine Mission dauerte anderthalb Jahre und umfasste 27 Besuche in der Ukraine, bis zum Ausbruch des Volksaufstands gegen die Regierung Janukowitsch.

Kwasniewski dementierte im Juni 2018 gegenüber dem Magazin «Politico», je für Manafort gearbeitet zu haben. Er gab aber zu, ihn 2012 an einer Konferenz in Berlin getroffen und später in den USA eine Reihe von Gesprächen im Kongress und im State Department zum Thema Ukraine geführt zu haben. Wer die Treffen eingefädelt habe, könne er im Nachhinein nicht mehr rekonstruieren.

Gusenbauer, laut Manafort der Kopf der «Habsburg-Gruppe», bestritt im Juni gegenüber der österreichischen Zeitung «Der Standard» den Vorwurf des Lobbyings und die Gesamtsumme von zwei Millionen Euro. Er sprach lediglich davon, für die Teilnahme an Konferenzen bezahlt worden zu sein und diese Gelder auch versteuert zu haben. Die das Schuldeingeständnis von Manafort begleitenden Justizakten zeichnen jedoch ein anderes Bild. Demnach fädelte der amerikanische Lobbyist auch mehrere Treffen Gusenbauers in Washington ein, unter anderem mit dem Vorsitzenden des aussenpolitischen Komitees im Repräsentantenhaus und einem für die Ukraine zuständigen hohen Beamten im State Department. Der ehemalige Kanzler hätte sich für diese Aktivitäten gemäss amerikanischer Gesetzgebung als Lobbyist einer ausländischen Macht registrieren lassen müssen. Gusenbauer setzte stattdessen auf Verschwiegenheit: Er soll laut einem amerikanischen Dokument eingewilligt haben, diskret vorzugehen, und seine Tätigkeit als «Untergrund-Kommentierung» bezeichnet haben.

Oppositionsführerin Timoschenko angeschwärzt

Manafort sah seine Mission darin, die 2010 an die Macht gekommene Regierung Janukowitsch im Westen salonfähig zu machen. Angesichts der prorussischen Ausrichtung des ukrainischen Staatschefs und dessen krimineller Vergangenheit war dies kein einfaches Unterfangen. Manafort arbeitete jedoch nicht ohne Erfolg daran, Janukowitsch ein neues Image zu geben und ihn als Repräsentanten eines Staates darzustellen, der auf dem Weg zu Demokratie und Rechtsstaatlichkeit vorankam, der das Land mit einem Assoziierungsabkommen an die Europäische Union heranführen konnte. Die Manipulationen bei den Parlamentswahlen von 2012 und die politisch motivierte Inhaftierung Timoschenkos standen in eklatantem Widerspruch zu dieser Sichtweise. Entsprechend bemühte sich Manafort, Timoschenko in der Öffentlichkeit anzuschwärzen und eine amerikanische Kongressresolution, die ihre Freilassung forderte, zu verhindern.

Dass Gusenbauer, Prodi und Kwasniewski an Konferenzen und in Zeitungskommentaren für engere Beziehungen zwischen der Ukraine und dem Westen plädierten, war keine ungewöhnliche Forderung und entsprach wohl ohnehin ihren Überzeugungen. Aber mit ihrer Einschätzung an einer dieser Konferenzen, dass die Wahlen von 2012 einen «gewaltigen Fortschritt» bedeuteten, während eine Beobachtermission der OSZE von einem Rückschritt sprach, trugen sie zur Weisswaschung des Janukowitsch-Regimes bei. Vor allem jedoch müssen sich die Mitglieder des «Habsburg-Gruppe» den Vorwurf gefallen lassen, dass sie sich der Öffentlichkeit als unabhängige Elder Statesmen darstellten, während sie in Wirklichkeit im Solde Kiews standen.

Der rätselhafte vierte Mann ist ein Türke

Unklar bleibt, wer das ungenannte vierte Mitglied der Gruppe war. Das Team um den Sonderstaatsanwalt Mueller macht in den verfügbaren Akten nur vage Andeutungen, möglicherweise aus aussenpolitischer Rücksichtnahme. Demnach lobbyierte der unbekannte Spitzenpolitiker am 16. Mai 2013 in Washington für die Ukraine, als er den Ministerpräsidenten seines Landes zu einem Treffen mit Präsident Obama und Vizepräsident Joe Biden begleitete. Im öffentlichen Terminkalender des Weissen Hauses ist für jenen Tag nur ein solcher hochrangiger Besuch eingetragen – jener des türkischen Regierungschefs Erdogan. Begleitet wurde Erdogan, wie ein offizielles Bildshows, only from his secret service chief and from Ahmet Davutoglu, the then foreign minister and later prime minister of Turkey. It is quite common in the US to refer to Turkey as part of Europe. However, there is no evidence that Davutoglu was the fourth “European leader” in the “Habsburg group”.

M.N.: It does not make any sense to stonewall and to obfuscate. It makes all the sense to work together. – 4:04 AM 10/1/2018 | FBI News Review
 

mikenova shared this story from FBI News Review.

M.N.: There is some confusion and contradiction in the news reports: the earlier reports claimed or implied that the two Russians arrested in the Netherlands for hacking are Boshirov and Petrov, this report: “Two more Russians reportedly arrested for plotting a cyber hack connected to poisoning“, implies that these are different persons. 

Where is the truth? 

My respectful recommendation to Mr. Putin and the Russian Leaders is: 

Do not fight these accusations (this whole incident and others) by claiming that it is a slander, we do not know yet where truth is. 

Say this:  

“The attacks on the Western Democracies and their citizens is the same like the attack on us and  our citizens, and we will do everything to help to solve these crimes if any were committed, and to bring the suspects to justice.” 

Appoint the best detective, heading the best investigative team in the country (I am sure that there are some very good criminal detectives in Russia) to conduct this investigation on the Russian side with the pledge of the complete, full, in good faith cooperation with the British team. Let them work together and consult each other freely during this and the other, similar investigations. 

It does not make any sense to stonewall and to obfuscate. It makes all the sense to work together. Generally, the hostile attitudes stemming from the insecurity have to stop. 

These latest shows are complex but at the same time they are simple; they all seem to be from the same opera and from the same hypothetical source which I call the New Abwehr. This hypothesis has to be taken very seriously, the Russian people are very well familiar with these dangers. And now, just like then, you need the good allies. The same good old Allies. 

And the New Abwehr does everything in its power, just like before, to break this Alliance.

Two more Russians reportedly arrested for plotting a cyber hack connected to poisoning
mikenova shared this story from New Zealand Herald – Top Stories.

A terrifying new twist has emerged in the Novichok poisonings in the UK, in which two Russian men allegedly attempted to murder a former KGB spy and his daughter with a deadly nerve agent, earlier this year.

The two Russian men, recently identified as Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, had been in the cathedral city of Salisbury in March, allegedly to visit a famous clock, when the attacks occurred, leaving one woman dead and her partner in hospital, reports news.com.au.

Reports have now surfaced that, following the attacks, two other Russian spies were plotting to hack into the computer systems of Swiss Spiez Laboratory which was analysing the Novichok agent.

Swiss publication Tages Anzeiger and Dutch paper NRC have reported that the two men, who have yet to be identified, were arrested back in March and detained in The Hague before being extradited back to Russia.

This case is seriously complex, it involves many moving parts and players, and reads like something out of a spy novel.

We have two Russians, claiming to be innocent tourists in an English city, at the exact time that a former Russian spy and his daughter are attacked with a deadly nerve agent.

We also have another innocent couple, exposed to the same deadly nerve agent, one of which dies days later.

The deadly nerve agent effectively shuts down a city, with officials in hazmat suits casing the streets in search of the perpetrators.

And now, we hear of the arrest of a second pair of Russians, who had been plotting a cyber attack of the Spiez Laboratory computers. The Swiss lab was testing the deadly nerve agent at the time.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

In an attempt to clear their name, Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov gave a bizarre television interview with TV network Russia Today, claiming they were simply in the area to marvel at it’s many historical wonders.

“Our friends had been telling us for some time we should visit this wonderful town,” Petrov said.

After an awkward silence in the interview, Boshirov filled it by clarifying they had visited the Salisbury Cathedral, which is famous for its “123-metre spire and its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that’s still working”.

Even British Prime Minister Theresa May isn’t buying their story, slamming it as “blatant fabrications” this month.

The comments have prompted a backlash from Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, who claimed the Kremlin had remained “unambiguous, transparent and consistent” throughout the entire saga.

“It is unacceptable to associate the Russian leadership or government with what went on in Salisbury,

“More so to blame Russia of lies following a statement by two civilians. These men are ordinary citizens with no relation to government”.

It’s safe to say it has been a big week for British and Russian relations…

So, in the wake of the claims and counterclaims in this extraordinary case, let’s take a look at everything we know about the Novichok poisonings.

It’s safe to say it has been a big week for British and Russian relations…

So, in the wake of the claims and counterclaims in this extraordinary case, let’s take a look at everything we know about the Novichok poisonings.

FRIDAY, MARCH 2

3pm:

Two Russian men arrive at Gatwick Airport, using business visas under the names of Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov. They had flown from Moscow on Aeroflot flight SU2588.

5.40pm: The pair arrived at Victoria station in London around this time.

6pm: They then travelled to Waterloo station and onto East London before staying the next two nights at the City Stay Hotel.

SATURDAY, MARCH 3

11.45am:

The two men left their hotel and took a train to Waterloo station.

2.25pm: They took another train which arrived at Salisbury around this time.

4.10pm: Police believe the men left Salisbury for the day around 4pm and got back to their hotel at approximately 8pm.

SUNDAY, MARCH 4

8.05am:

The pair made the same journey from their hotel back to Salisbury where police believe they contaminated Skripal’s front door with the deadly Novichok nerve agent.

9.15am: Sergei Skripal is seen driving his BMW in the city.

11.48am: The pair is seen arriving at Salisbury train station just before 12pm. They’re spotted a few minutes later at a local Shell petrol station close to Sergei Skripal’s home.

12pm: The attack is believed to have occurred around this time. The perpetrators are understood to have doused the front door of Skripal’s home in Novichok.

1.05pm: Boshirov and Petrov are spotted in the city centre. It’s not known how they got there.

1.40pm: Sergei and his daughter Yulia are seen in the city centre. Police suspect that the father and daughter may have been home when the perpetrators doused their front door in Novichok.

4.15pm: Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury city centre, after being poisoned by Novichok nerve agent. The pair spent weeks in a critical condition but have since recovered.

4.45pm: Petrov and Boshirov leave Salisbury back to Waterloo Station.

6.30pm: The pair hop on the London Underground, bound for Heathrow Airport where they take a 10.30pm flight back to Moscow.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14

Prime Minister Theresa May says there is no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable for the attempted murder of Mr Skripal and his daughter.

MONDAY, MARCH 26

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said that in response to the Salisbury attacks, his government had decided to expel “two Russian intelligence agents working at the Russian embassy’, according to Dutch News.

The two men were arrested for plotting to hack into the computers of a Swiss chemical weapons laboratory testing Novichok nerve agent used in the Salisbury attack. The spies were allegedly found with high tech espionage equipment, designed to spy on the lab and were sent back to Russia but have not been charged.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27

Salisbury resident Charlie Rowley, 45, claims he found a perfume bottle, which allegedly contained Novichok. He takes it home to his girlfriend, Dawn Sturgess.

SATURDAY, JUNE 30

Dawn Sturgess a 44-year-old mother-of-three becomes ill after she was exposed to the Novichok nerve agent. It is understood she sprayed herself with the perfume bottle her partner Charlie Rowley brought home.

Charlie Rowley also becomes ill later that day and spent three weeks in hospital.

SATURDAY, JULY 8

Dawn Sturgess dies in hospital.

FRIDAY, MAY 4

Police carry out tests in the hotel room where the two Russian men had stayed. The results showed the presence of Novichok agent. European arrest warrants and Interpol red notices have been issued, meaning the men can be arrested if they leave Russia.

SEPTEMBER 5

British authorities said they had obtained a European arrest warrant for two Russians blamed for a nerve agent attack on a former spy in the city of Salisbury in March. Prosecutors said they wanted Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov for trying to kill Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with the chemical Novichok.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13

Boshirov and Petrov appear in on the state-funded television channel Russia Today to protest their innocence.

They were interviewed by Margarita Simonyan and it made for some interesting viewing.

When asked what they were doing in the UK, Petrov said they were there for a mix of business and pleasure.

“We planned to go to London and let loose, so to speak, it wasn’t a business trip,” he said.

“We came to Salisbury on the March 3…we tried to walk around the city, but since the city was covered in snow, we were able to only for a half an hour, we got wet”.

Strangely, the pair withdraws into a conversation between themselves when asked if they visited Sergei Skripal’s home when they were in Salisbury.

Petrov: Maybe we went by there.

Boshirov: Do you know where the Skripals’ home is? I don’t.

Petrov: If we would have known where it was.

Boshirov: Maybe we passed by it, maybe we didn’t pass by it, I don’t know, I hadn’t heard. I hadn’t heard this surname, I didn’t know anything about them before this situation, this nightmare with us started.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14

Tensions between Britain and Russia have escalated, with a Kremlin spokesman claiming it would not allow the UK access to the accused spies, according to The independent.

“We don’t organise interviews with citizens of Russia,” Dmitry Peskov said.

“There are mechanisms to provide legal assistance… if the British decide to make an application, we will respond strictly according to law.”

Zakharova Slams Bellingcat Report Alleging Salisbury Suspects Had no ID Records

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Friday questioned the credibility of the report of UK investigative blogger group Bellingcat on alleged passport data of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, who are suspected by London in the Skripal case.

“Was the Federal Migration Service [FMS] database hacked just today? London had made an announcement about Petrov and Boshirov long ago … So, not a single database was hacked before? No, it was not. Because another idea was promoted: these people just do not exist [as the names were said to be fictitious]. This is what the UK police said, posting their photos. Now the people are found. But the main question is different.

She stressed that the UK investigative blogger group had five months to present to the public photographs, screenshots, videos, anything that would at least raise suspicions against Petrov and Boshirov but failed to do so.

Earlier in the day, Bellingcat and The Insider reported that their joint investigation confirmed, through uncovered passport data, that the two Russian nationals were linked to Russian security services. Such an assumption was explained by the fact that the men’s internal passports under these names were issued in 2009, while no records allegedly exist for these two individuals prior to this year.

The report comes a day after the RT broadcaster released the interview with Petrov and Boshirov, in which the men refuted any involvement in the Skripal case, saying that they had no relation to the Russian military intelligence service (GRU) and visited the United Kingdom as tourists. The UK Foreign Office called the interview “obfuscation and lies.”

M.N.: This is indeed the hypothetical connection between the “PETRONAS” (Petrov Boshirov PERSONAS)  – the Salisbury Poisoning, and the Blackberry – Abedin’s device – Clinton’s emails – Anthony Weiner sexting affair – Democratic Party hack – US Elections 2016 Interference: 

The Boshirov Petrov hacking attempt (GNews)

The “Sandworm Hacking Group” – (GNews). 

This means that the Salisbury Poisoning and the US Elections 2016 Interference might be the parts of the same large operation designed by the Demiurge, the New Abwehr, which uses the ostensibly GRU related groups as its covers. It might be the mixed or the purely the GRU groups but I strongly doubt it: the overall benefits of the Operation Dusseldorf Karnival are in the German and certainly not in Russian interests.

U.K. investigation says Novichok poisoning suspects detained and released by Dutch this year
 

mikenova shared this story from TORONTO STAR | NEWS | WORLD.

MOSCOW—British investigative group Bellingcat says two suspects in the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy were briefly detained in the Netherlands earlier this year.

Bellingcat in its investigation released late Thursday quoted an unnamed security official saying that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were detained in the Netherlands earlier this year and released without being charged.

Dutch authorities didn’t immediately confirm the report, saying Friday that they were assessing an Associated Press request for comment.

Britain has charged Petrov and Boshirov with trying to kill Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter with the Soviet-designed nerve agent Novichok.

Media reports last week said two unidentified Russian spies were arrested on Dutch soil and deported, and leaked police information linked the arrests with attempts by them to smuggle hacking equipment to Switzerland.

US disrupts Russian botnet of 500,000 hacked routers
 

mikenova shared this story from Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories.

The US Justice Department said Wednesday that it had seized an internet domain that directed a dangerous botnet of a half-million infected home and office network routers, controlled by hackers believed tied to Russian intelligence.

The move was aimed at breaking up an operation deeply embedded in small and medium-sized computer networks that could allow the hackers to take control of computers as well as easily steal data.

The Justice Department said the “VPNFilter” botnet was set up by a hacking group variously called APT28, Pawn Storm, Sandworm, Fancy Bear and the Sofacy Group.

The group is blamed for cyber attacks on numerous governments, key infrastructure industries like power grids, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the World Anti-Doping Agency, and other bodies.

US intelligence agencies also say it was involved in the operation to hack and release damaging information on the Democratic Party during the 2016 US presidential election, and has engineered a number of computer network disruptions in Ukraine.

“According to cybersecurity researchers, the Sofacy Group is a cyber-espionage group believed to have originated from Russia,” the Department of Justice said in a court filing.

“Likely operating since 2007, the group is known to typically target government, military, security organizations, and other targets of intelligence value, through a variety of means,” it said.

The Justice filing did not say who was behind Sofacy Group, but US intelligence has in the past linked it to Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency, and numerous private computer security groups have made the same connection.

In Wednesday’s action, the Justice Department said it had obtained a warrant authorizing the FBI to seize a computer domain that is part of the command and control system of the VPNFilter botnet.

The botnet targets home and office routers, through which it can relay orders from the botnet’s controllers and intercept and reroute traffic back to them, virtually undetected by the users of a network.

In a report released in parallel to the Justice announcement, network equipment giant Cisco said VPNFilter had infected at least 500,000 devices in at least 54 countries.

It has targeted popular router brands like Linksys, MikroTik, NETGEAR and TP-Link.

“The behavior of this malware on networking equipment is particularly concerning, as components of the VPNFilter malware allows for theft of website credentials,” Cisco said.

It also has “a destructive capacity that can render an infected device unusable, which can be triggered on individual victim machines or en masse.”

Both Justice and Cisco said they were releasing details of the problem before having found a strong, permanent fix. Justice said that by seizing control of one of the domains involved in running VNPFilter, it will give owners of infected routers a chance to reboot them, forcing them to begin communicating with the now-neutralized command domain.

The vulnerability will remain, Justice said, but the move will allow them more time to identify and intervene in other parts of the network.

Passport Similarities Could Be Exposing Russian Spies In Europe
 

mikenova shared this story from The Daily Caller.

An investigation into passport similarities among Russian poisoning suspects reportedly provided insight into whether or not the individuals are linked to Russian security services.

Two men accused of poisoning Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military officer and double agent, have passports that “shared similar features with a number of other files that are believed to be associated with Russian spies,” The Washington Post reported Monday.

Passports of the accused — Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov — reportedly had phone numbers connected to Russian military facilities as well as similar passport numbers and issuing authority, according to a joint investigation from Bellingcat and Russia Insider. The report “appears to have provided European agencies with a number of details,” according to WaPo.

The passports were scrutinized after Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with nerve agent Novichok on March 4 in Salisbury, England. Investigators in the joint report determined that prime suspects Boshirov and Petrov likely used false identities to cover for their involvement in the Skripals’ murders since they found no record of them individuals before 2009. (RELATED: Russian Gov’t Responds To Charges Against Alleged Spy Linked To NRA)

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed Sept. 12 that the men were civilians who “traveled to Salisbury for a tourist getaway,” according to the joint report.

Bellingcat and Russian Insider also discovered “top-secret” markings on one of the passports, indicating the unlikelihood that they were simply civilian tourists in the area at the time of the poisoning.

Passports with similar features to Boshirov and Petrov’s documents were also found to be connected to an attempted coup in Montenegro, The Guardian reported Sunday.

Russia’s explanation of the poisoning “was a major disaster,” said former KGB agent Alexander Vassiliev, according to CBC News.

“The propaganda machine is not working. It’s mistake after mistake,” he added. Vassiliev is currently a London-based espionage historian.

“We are poisoning ourselves,” Russian economist and politician Grigory Yavlinsky also said, CBC reported.

Norwegian authorities arrested a man Friday on suspicions of being a Russian spy, and Estonia charged at least 12 alleged Russian spies since 2008, according to WaPo. Dutch officials also arrested two men suspected of spying for the Russian government earlier in 2018.

Roughly 200,000 Russians live in London, and more than 700,000 Londoners speak Russian, according to ABC News.

Are Germany and Russia friends?
 

mikenova shared this story from Turkey and World News.

Lincoln Pigman

The relationship of the two countries predates that of the two leaders. And when Merkel and Putin sit down for talks on Saturday in the German government’s villa outside Berlin, they will be influenced by a long history of alienation and rapprochements, limiting the expectations — and possibly the results — of the meeting.

Pressed on the nature of the talks, Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, indicated the leaders would focus on finding common ground on acute international issues, such as Syria, Ukraine and energy. But he declined to provide details.

Russia is an international actor without whom it is impossible to imagine finding solutions to various problems” in the world, Seibert told reporters in Berlin.

Many experts expect that the meeting will attempt to put the relationship between Berlin and Moscow on more pragmatic ground, but few expect the session to end with strong resolutions or a new strategic partnership.

Here’s a look at some of the issues that define and influence German-Russian ties.

— Are Germany and Russia friends?

The two countries could be described as the ultimate international “frenemies,” with economic, cultural and intellectual ties reaching back centuries. Since the 18th century, they have cycled through a series of conflicts and reconciliations, most recently World War II and the Cold War.

Throughout the Soviet era, Germany was Moscow’s most important trading partner, and many Germans view the strong, positive ties to Moscow as a key contributor to the end of the Cold War and German unification. When the Berlin Wall fell, Germany reached out to Moscow, partly to help former Soviet bloc countries integrate into the European Union, not only strengthening political and economic ties, but also investing in civil society.

But a break in relations that started with the Russian authorities’ repressive reaction to public protests in 2011 and 2012 worsened in 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea and supported rebels in eastern Ukraine.
Merkel and Putin have maintained regular contact. In May, she visited Putin at his summer residence in Sochi, Russia.

But Susan Stewart, a senior associate with the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, cautioned that the leaders’ meeting in Germany should not be viewed as a fundamental shift in German-Russian relations. Instead, it is an indication of the hope that the two sides will be able to reach a compromise on key points, while maintaining their differences over Russia’s role in the conflict in Ukraine.

“They will be trying a two-pronged approach,” Stewart said. “They will try to cooperate on those points where there is a common interest, but we will not see a return to business as usual.”

— What does Germany want from Russia?

Both Germany and Russia have problems that are tied to Syria.

For Merkel, the issue is domestic, as her decision to allow more than 1 million people — most of them refugees from the war in Syria — to apply for asylum in Germany has met increasing resistance from the public and from her own government. For Putin, it is not being quite able to find a solution to Syria’s civil war despite having declared “mission accomplished” on several occasions.

Both leaders could benefit from finding a way to ensure sufficient political stability in Syria to allow Germany to begin encouraging refugees to return, while Putin is seeking support from Berlin and the European Union to help rebuild the country, said Stefan Meister of the German Council on Foreign Relations.

“It is in the domestic political interest of the German government that Syrian refugees be able to return to a stable Syria,” Meister said.

— What does Russia want from Germany?

Germany’s willingness to throw its full weight behind the United States’ decision to impose sanctions on Moscow over its annexation of Crimea, its involvement in the pro-Kremlin insurgency in eastern Ukraine and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, took the Russians by surprise.

The move made clear to Russian leaders that the special relationship they believed they had shared with Berlin was over. Soon afterward, Germany found itself in the crosshairs of Russian cyberattacks and a campaign in the Russian news media that caused Germany to plunge in Russian public opinion.
“If you look at the image of Germany — and Merkel in particular — in Russian political discourse, you will see that it really has deteriorated tremendously,” said Sabine Fischer, head researcher on Eastern Europe at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs.

A survey cited on Friday by Vedomosti, a Russian business daily, reflected this trend, showing approval of the German chancellor among Russians plummeting to 15 percent in August 2016 from 60 percent in February 2011.

But to break out of its international isolation, Russia needs Germany’s support. It hopes to persuade the chancellor not to support a fresh round of sanctions President Donald Trump has threatened to impose over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in Britain.

“There is a need for more pragmatic action at the political level,” Fischer said.

— Is Germany a ‘captive of Russia,’ as Trump says?

Germany imports about 40 percent of its natural gas from Russia, according to government statistics. That is more than any other EU country, but less than the 60 percent to 70 percent Trump cited when he accused Germany of being a “captive” of Russia at a NATO summit last month.

“That comment clearly taps into a stereotype in Washington that because of its economic ties, Germany is ‘weaker’ on Russia,” said Derek Chollet, an adviser on security and defense policy with the German Marshall Fund in Washington.

Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder’s close relationship to Putin and his decision to join the board of Russia’s state oil company, Rosneft, has only bolstered that notion. But Merkel has shown a willingness to draw a line, with her decisions to support sanctions against Russia in 2015 and to join the coordinated response to the poisoning in Britain this spring.

“My sense is Merkel, who in her own way makes clear that she understands the Russians and Putin as a type as well as anyone, has no illusions about Russia or Putin and their motives,” Chollet said.

Four MORE Russian suspects are yet to be named in the Salisbury Novichok probe amid claims the attack was carried out by a six strong assassination squad named ‘The Cleaners’

  • Security sources said the hit squad who targeted the Skripals had six members

Four more Russians are suspects in the Novichok investigation but have yet to be named, it was claimed tonight.

Security sources have reportedly said the Russian hit squad who targeted former spy Sergei Skripal had six members who were known as The Cleaners.

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were accused this week of carrying out the poisoning in Salisbury and were identified as members of the GRU, Russia‘s military intelligence service.

The attempted assassins are said to have had a back-up team who travelled separately and helped with reconnaissance in Salisbury, the Mirror reported.

A source told the newspaper: ‘Back-up is needed to keep the Skripals under surveillance. Petrov and Boshirov needed to know they wouldn’t turn up while they were spraying the novichok.’

The back-up team were also there in case anything happened to the nerve agent, the source said.

The two alleged assassins are also said to have visited the UK several times, posing as wealthy Russians, so that their trip in March would not attract suspicion.

It came as work started to decontaminate the home of poisoning victim Mr Skripal, six months after the attack.

A cordon is in place so that police investigations or clean-up work can be carried out safely and will remain in place until the decontamination has been completed.

Counter-terrorism officers believe the house is where Mr Skripal, a former Russian agent, and his daughter Yulia were contaminated with nerve agent on March 4, after a high concentration of the chemical weapon was found on the front door.

The clean-up is being overseen by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in partnership with Wiltshire Council and carried out by specialist military teams.

Former GRU officer Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were left critically ill after being exposed to the military grade nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury in March.

Detectives believe it is likely the two suspects, thought to be aged around 40, travelled under aliases and that Petrov and Boshirov are not their real names.

Prosecutors deem it futile to apply to Russia for the extradition of the two men, but a European Arrest Warrant has been obtained and the authorities are also seeking the assistance of Interpol.

Officers have formally linked the attack on the Skripals to events in nearby Amesbury when Dawn Sturgess, 44, and her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, were exposed to the same nerve agent. Ms Sturgess later died in hospital.

Moscow has continued to deny it was involved in the attack.

M.N.: It does not make any sense to stonewall and to obfuscate. It makes all the sense to work together. – 4:04 AM 10/1/2018 | FBI News Review

mikenova shared this story from FBI News Review.

M.N.: There is some confusion and contradiction in the news reports: the earlier reports claimed or implied that the two Russians arrested in the Netherlands for hacking are Boshirov and Petrov, this report: “Two more Russians reportedly arrested for plotting a cyber hack connected to poisoning“, implies that these are different persons. 

Where is the truth? 

My respectful recommendation to Mr. Putin and the Russian Leaders is: 

Do not fight these accusations (this whole incident and others) by claiming that it is a slander, we do not know yet where the truth is. 

Say this:  

“The attacks on the Western Democracies and their citizens is the same like the attack on us and  our citizens, and we will do everything to help to solve these crimes if any were committed, and to bring the suspects to justice.” 

Appoint the best detective, heading the best investigative team in the country (I am sure that there are some very good criminal detectives in Russia) to conduct this investigation on the Russian side with the pledge of the complete, full, in good faith cooperation with the British team. Let them work together and consult each other freely during this and the other, similar investigations. 

It does not make any sense to stonewall and to obfuscate. It makes all the sense to work together. Generally, the hostile attitudes stemming from the insecurity have to stop. 

These latest shows are complex but at the same time they are simple; they all seem to be from the same opera and from the same hypothetical source which I call the New Abwehr. This hypothesis has to be taken very seriously, the Russian people are very well familiar with these dangers. And now, just like then, you need the good allies. The same good old Allies. 

And the New Abwehr does everything in its power, just like before, to break this Alliance.

Mike Nova’s Shared NewsLinks: How European politicians could be corrupted – the mysterious “Habsburg group” and their lobbying for Ukraine
 

mikenova shared this story .

With the confession of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager, the American special prosecutor Robert Mueller has recorded his biggest success so far. Manafort has admitted what Mueller’s investigators uncovered in laborious, month-long work: a criminal construct of lobbying activities in the interests of the former Ukrainian government under the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych, accompanied by money laundering and tax fraud. A total of $ 60 million flowed from Ukraine to Manafort, who unlawfully did not register as a lobbyist for a foreign government. Despite his confession, he is expected to remain behind bars for many years.

Gusenbauer, Prodi and Kwasniewski

Weder politisch noch juristisch aufgearbeitet ist jedoch der europäische Zweig dieses Lobbying-Skandals: Weitgehend unbeachtet geblieben ist der Umstand, dass Manafort mit seinem Schuldbekenntnis vom Freitag auch eine Reihe von ehemaligen europäischen Spitzenpolitikern schwer belastet hat. Unter ihnen sind der frühere österreichische Bundeskanzler und SPÖ-Vorsitzende Alfred Gusenbauer, der einstige EU-Kommissions-Präsident und italienische Ministerpräsident Romano Prodi, der ehemalige polnische Präsident Alexander Kwasniewski sowie ein weiteres, noch unbekanntes Mitglied der Lobbyisten-Gruppe, das es 2013 sogar schaffte, seine Ansichten bei einem Treffen mit dem damaligen amerikanischen Präsidenten Barack Obama einzubringen.

Manafort gab der illustren Gruppe laut amerikanischen Gerichtsakten den Namen «Habsburg-Gruppe». Als die Vorwürfe gegen Gusenbauer und seine Gefährten im Februar erstmals publik wurden, wurden sie von den Betroffenen stark relativiert oder ganz abgestritten. Mit Manaforts Geständnis gibt es jedoch keinen Grund mehr, an ihrer Stichhaltigkeit zu zweifeln. In der aussergerichtlichen Vereinbarung (Plea Agreement), die der Angeklagte mit dem Sonderstaatsanwalt traf, gab Manafort zu, in den Jahren 2012/13 über Offshore-Konten diskrete Zahlungen in der Höhe von gesamthaft mehr als zwei Millionen Euro an die «Habsburg-Gruppe» arrangiert zu haben. Um europäische Steuergesetze zu umgehen, habe der Vertrag mit der «Habsburg-Gruppe» fälschlicherweise festgehalten, dass deren Tätigkeit nur ausserhalb Europas stattfinden werde. In Wirklichkeit nahmen Gusenbauer, Prodi und Kwasniewski in Europa an diversen Konferenzen teil, um dort zum Thema Ukraine zu sprechen. Dass sie dabei von Manafort und letztlich von der Regierung Janukowitsch bezahlt wurden, hielten sie vor der Öffentlichkeit verborgen.

Eklatanter Interessenkonflikt

Besonders stossend ist der Fall des früheren polnischen Staatsoberhaupts Kwasniewski. Er erhielt im Juni 2012 vom damaligen Präsidenten des Europäischen Parlamentes, Martin Schulz, den Auftrag, zusammen mit einem britischen Politiker eine Monitoring-Mission in der Ukraine zu leiten. Es ging darum, das rechtsstaatlich fragwürdige Gerichtsverfahren gegen die inhaftierte ukrainische Oppositionsführerin Julia Timoschenko zu verfolgen, deren Freilassung damals viele westliche Politiker forderten. Die Berufung Kwasniewskis erscheint im Nachhinein als Fehlgriff. Schulz pries den Polen damals als weitherum respektierte Persönlichkeit von hoher internationaler Reputation. Doch in Wirklichkeit hatte sich Kwasniewski in einen unauflösbaren Interessenkonflikt verstrickt, indem er laut den amerikanischen Gerichtsakten gleichzeitig Geld von der ukrainischen Regierung annahm, die Timoschenko ins Gefängnis geworfen hatte. Seine Mission dauerte anderthalb Jahre und umfasste 27 Besuche in der Ukraine, bis zum Ausbruch des Volksaufstands gegen die Regierung Janukowitsch.

Kwasniewski dementierte im Juni 2018 gegenüber dem Magazin «Politico», je für Manafort gearbeitet zu haben. Er gab aber zu, ihn 2012 an einer Konferenz in Berlin getroffen und später in den USA eine Reihe von Gesprächen im Kongress und im State Department zum Thema Ukraine geführt zu haben. Wer die Treffen eingefädelt habe, könne er im Nachhinein nicht mehr rekonstruieren.

Gusenbauer, laut Manafort der Kopf der «Habsburg-Gruppe», bestritt im Juni gegenüber der österreichischen Zeitung «Der Standard» den Vorwurf des Lobbyings und die Gesamtsumme von zwei Millionen Euro. Er sprach lediglich davon, für die Teilnahme an Konferenzen bezahlt worden zu sein und diese Gelder auch versteuert zu haben. Die das Schuldeingeständnis von Manafort begleitenden Justizakten zeichnen jedoch ein anderes Bild. Demnach fädelte der amerikanische Lobbyist auch mehrere Treffen Gusenbauers in Washington ein, unter anderem mit dem Vorsitzenden des aussenpolitischen Komitees im Repräsentantenhaus und einem für die Ukraine zuständigen hohen Beamten im State Department. Der ehemalige Kanzler hätte sich für diese Aktivitäten gemäss amerikanischer Gesetzgebung als Lobbyist einer ausländischen Macht registrieren lassen müssen. Gusenbauer setzte stattdessen auf Verschwiegenheit: Er soll laut einem amerikanischen Dokument eingewilligt haben, diskret vorzugehen, und seine Tätigkeit als «Untergrund-Kommentierung» bezeichnet haben.

Oppositionsführerin Timoschenko angeschwärzt

Manafort sah seine Mission darin, die 2010 an die Macht gekommene Regierung Janukowitsch im Westen salonfähig zu machen. Angesichts der prorussischen Ausrichtung des ukrainischen Staatschefs und dessen krimineller Vergangenheit war dies kein einfaches Unterfangen. Manafort arbeitete jedoch nicht ohne Erfolg daran, Janukowitsch ein neues Image zu geben und ihn als Repräsentanten eines Staates darzustellen, der auf dem Weg zu Demokratie und Rechtsstaatlichkeit vorankam, der das Land mit einem Assoziierungsabkommen an die Europäische Union heranführen konnte. Die Manipulationen bei den Parlamentswahlen von 2012 und die politisch motivierte Inhaftierung Timoschenkos standen in eklatantem Widerspruch zu dieser Sichtweise. Entsprechend bemühte sich Manafort, Timoschenko in der Öffentlichkeit anzuschwärzen und eine amerikanische Kongressresolution, die ihre Freilassung forderte, zu verhindern.

Dass Gusenbauer, Prodi und Kwasniewski an Konferenzen und in Zeitungskommentaren für engere Beziehungen zwischen der Ukraine und dem Westen plädierten, war keine ungewöhnliche Forderung und entsprach wohl ohnehin ihren Überzeugungen. Aber mit ihrer Einschätzung an einer dieser Konferenzen, dass die Wahlen von 2012 einen «gewaltigen Fortschritt» bedeuteten, während eine Beobachtermission der OSZE von einem Rückschritt sprach, trugen sie zur Weisswaschung des Janukowitsch-Regimes bei. Vor allem jedoch müssen sich die Mitglieder des «Habsburg-Gruppe» den Vorwurf gefallen lassen, dass sie sich der Öffentlichkeit als unabhängige Elder Statesmen darstellten, während sie in Wirklichkeit im Solde Kiews standen.

Der rätselhafte vierte Mann ist ein Türke

Unklar bleibt, wer das ungenannte vierte Mitglied der Gruppe war. Das Team um den Sonderstaatsanwalt Mueller macht in den verfügbaren Akten nur vage Andeutungen, möglicherweise aus aussenpolitischer Rücksichtnahme. Demnach lobbyierte der unbekannte Spitzenpolitiker am 16. Mai 2013 in Washington für die Ukraine, als er den Ministerpräsidenten seines Landes zu einem Treffen mit Präsident Obama und Vizepräsident Joe Biden begleitete. Im öffentlichen Terminkalender des Weissen Hauses ist für jenen Tag nur ein solcher hochrangiger Besuch eingetragen – jener des türkischen Regierungschefs Erdogan. Begleitet wurde Erdogan, wie ein offizielles Bildshows, only from his secret service chief and from Ahmet Davutoglu, the then foreign minister and later prime minister of Turkey. It is quite common in the US to refer to Turkey as part of Europe. However, there is no evidence that Davutoglu was the fourth “European leader” in the “Habsburg group”.

M.N.: There is some confusion and contradiction in the news reports: the earlier reports claimed or implied that the two Russians arrested in the Netherlands for hacking are Boshirov and Petrov, this report: “Two more Russians reportedly arrested for plotting a cyber hack connected to poisoning“, implies that these are different persons. 

Where is the truth? 

My respectful recommendation to Mr. Putin and the Russian Leaders is: 

Do not fight these accusations (this whole incident and others) by claiming that it is a slander, we do not know yet where the truth is. 

Say this:  

“The attacks on the Western Democracies and their citizens is the same like the attack on us and  our citizens, and we will do everything to help to solve these crimes if any were committed, and to bring the suspects to justice.” 

Appoint the best detective, heading the best investigative team in the country (I am sure that there are some very good criminal detectives in Russia) to conduct this investigation on the Russian side with the pledge of the complete, full, in good faith cooperation with the British team. Let them work together and consult each other freely during this and the other, similar investigations. 

It does not make any sense to stonewall and to obfuscate. It makes all the sense to work together. Generally, the hostile attitudes stemming from the insecurity have to stop. 

These latest shows are complex but at the same time they are simple; they all seem to be from the same opera and from the same hypothetical source which I call the New Abwehr. This hypothesis has to be taken very seriously, the Russian people are very well familiar with these dangers. And now, just like then, you need the good allies. The same good old Allies. 

And the New Abwehr does everything in its power, just like before, to break this Alliance.

Two more Russians reportedly arrested for plotting a cyber hack connected to poisoning
mikenova shared this story from New Zealand Herald – Top Stories.

A terrifying new twist has emerged in the Novichok poisonings in the UK, in which two Russian men allegedly attempted to murder a former KGB spy and his daughter with a deadly nerve agent, earlier this year.

The two Russian men, recently identified as Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, had been in the cathedral city of Salisbury in March, allegedly to visit a famous clock, when the attacks occurred, leaving one woman dead and her partner in hospital, reports news.com.au.

Reports have now surfaced that, following the attacks, two other Russian spies were plotting to hack into the computer systems of Swiss Spiez Laboratory which was analysing the Novichok agent.

Swiss publication Tages Anzeiger and Dutch paper NRC have reported that the two men, who have yet to be identified, were arrested back in March and detained in The Hague before being extradited back to Russia.

This case is seriously complex, it involves many moving parts and players, and reads like something out of a spy novel.

We have two Russians, claiming to be innocent tourists in an English city, at the exact time that a former Russian spy and his daughter are attacked with a deadly nerve agent.

We also have another innocent couple, exposed to the same deadly nerve agent, one of which dies days later.

The deadly nerve agent effectively shuts down a city, with officials in hazmat suits casing the streets in search of the perpetrators.

And now, we hear of the arrest of a second pair of Russians, who had been plotting a cyber attack of the Spiez Laboratory computers. The Swiss lab was testing the deadly nerve agent at the time.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

In an attempt to clear their name, Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov gave a bizarre television interview with TV network Russia Today, claiming they were simply in the area to marvel at it’s many historical wonders.

“Our friends had been telling us for some time we should visit this wonderful town,” Petrov said.

After an awkward silence in the interview, Boshirov filled it by clarifying they had visited the Salisbury Cathedral, which is famous for its “123-metre spire and its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that’s still working”.

Even British Prime Minister Theresa May isn’t buying their story, slamming it as “blatant fabrications” this month.

The comments have prompted a backlash from Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, who claimed the Kremlin had remained “unambiguous, transparent and consistent” throughout the entire saga.

“It is unacceptable to associate the Russian leadership or government with what went on in Salisbury,

“More so to blame Russia of lies following a statement by two civilians. These men are ordinary citizens with no relation to government”.

It’s safe to say it has been a big week for British and Russian relations…

So, in the wake of the claims and counterclaims in this extraordinary case, let’s take a look at everything we know about the Novichok poisonings.
