More Russian military spies exposed
PARIS (AP) — It seems like open season on the GRU.
The Russian military agency had its inner workings exposed again Friday as determined journalists and Kremlin critics remain focused on uncovering its secrets. A new report details the alleged misbehavior and bizarre bureaucratic decisions that allowed a Russian journalist to identify people he says are GRU officers.
Journalist Sergei Kanev said he wants to call attention to problems within an organization he thinks has moved from traditional spying into unchecked violence and foreign interference. But his story portrays the agency as more sloppy than scary: one finding was that suspected GRU agents appeared to blow their own covers.

M.N.: Я боцку не кацу! I love my Dear Sister Nina, and very sincerely (but not sexually), it is the chemistry, she knows that. 

However, ziz might be a good point in space and time to start the discussion about the corrupting and the manipulative influences of the High Executive Powers on the Intelligence and Counterintelligence Analysis in general. These influences have to be contained within the natural and the appropriate bounds. The great many historical mistakes occurred due to the over-exercise of these powers, the Stalin’s denial of the Germany’s preparations for the plan Barbarossa is one of them. The Analysis has to be absolutely independent and objective, it seems to me; just like a scientific discipline, or medicine (which might be a good comparison). 

In this particular case, the Chinese threat is undoubtedly present (and probably more in the attempts to corrupt the democratic process by financial infusions and in the industrial espionage than anything else), but the significance of this threat has to be accurately assessed and presented to the public. The major actions still are in the good old European theater. We still relive the past history and the past trauma. The WW2 is not really finished, it seems to me. It will be finished only when the New Abwehr signs the peace treaty. We have to realize this. It is also quite possible, that they attempt to convey this message in their recent operations, and they also sense that the old Canaris-Canalyas-Canals paradigm of the intelligence work is exhausted, and they will be outrun if they do not adjust to the new realities. 

The Higher Executive Powers have to be enlightened, but they cannot be allowed to bend the strategic visions and plans as they are determined by  the collective analysis of the Intelligence Community. This analysis has to be as accurate as possible.

И каждый год по Волге и Двине, а затем и по всем прочим судоходным рекам тащились баржи и расшивы, гружёные бочками с солёной рыбой. Hа пристанях грузчики скатывали бочки на берег, перегружали на телеги. Каждая бочка весила около полутонны и можно представить, что сталось бы с человеком, неловко оказавшимся на пути подобного груза, ведь бочки на наклонных сходнях разгонялись весьма ощутимо. Отсюда – первейшее правило грузчиков: не катить бочку на человека. А поскольку промысел этот бытовал по всей России, то и выражение “катить бочку” было понятно всюду, а не только в портовых городах, хотя оно никогда не считалось литературным. Да и трудно рассчитывать, что идиома, родившаяся на самом дне русского общества, будет с восторгом принята культурной прослойкой. И сегодня выражение это считается вульгарным, неприемлемым в приличном обществе, хотя значение его вполне безобидно. Катить на кого-либо бочку значит неспровоцированно нападать, угрожать или обвинять в чём-либо этого человека. Причём совершенно неважно, справедливы обвинения или нет. Важен сам факт нападения на человека, который лично тебе ничего плохого не сделал.

This reasoning, described in the article below, is quite plausible and common sense, and it should be considered as one of the explanatory options. 
Furthermore, if my hypothesis of “Boshirov, Petrov, Fedotov” as the dead drop servicing team is correct, and if the same team was sent to various places to perform these functions, it might lead to the following thoughts. 
These persons are the part of the private Yanukovych-Skripal intelligence service, and they are connected first of all and most of all with the Ukranian Intelligence Services and then, with the Russian Intelligence Services. But these connections do not mean the active service or the direct employment by these Services. I think that this is the important distinction to make. The use of the same team might mean that their resources are limited, and this is another indication that the official Services, with their practically, and for these purposes, unlimited resources, probably were not involved directly. 
It is only the common sense to assume that the professional killers handling the neurotoxic gases or substances would not have behaved the way Boshirov and Petrov did. No self-respecting Intelligence Service would use these people for these purposes.

Salisbury Poisoning Updates

INSIGHTS

Britain may have missed the real ‘novichok assassins’ in Salisbury by concentrating on the Russian pair who were widely seen on CCTV, an ex-GRU spy has claimed.

The anonymous retired agent claimed Russian military intelligence uses ‘liquidators’ to kill enemies – but doubts that the men named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov are plausible as killers.

They could, however, have been ‘watchers’ to report on security around the Skripal family home in Salisbury and pass information to the real hit squad which remain unseen to MI5 and the police, he claimed.

Britain may have missed the real ‘novichok assassins’ in Salisbury by concentrating on the Russian pair who were widely seen on CCTV (pictured), an ex-GRU spy has claimed

Petrov and Boshirov appeared on television to claim that they visited Salisbury as tourists

Petrov and Boshirov used Russian passports to fly to Britain and appear to have engaged in a sex-and-drugs session in their London hotel – as well as being spotted by a host of TV cameras – while on their GRU mission, according to reports.

But the GRU would not have sent assassins to Britain using Russian passports, the ex-agent was quoted as telling newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets today.

Nor would the real ‘liquidators’ have been so inept at avoiding CCTV cameras.

‘Nowadays it is no problem to make a high quality foreign passport for any country,’ he boasted.

‘If it had been needed to send real liquidators for a serious task, then, for example, a citizen of Latvia and a citizen of the Dominican Republic would have entered the country.

‘And when the task was completed, the citizen of Hungary and a citizen of Puerto Rico would have left the country.’

The GRU – which is part of the Russian defence ministry – always had ‘strict rules’ on assassinating enemies, said the former agent.

‘Each liquidation operation is designed in detail,’ he explained. ‘Several options for escape are worked out.’

Schemes for ‘liquidating unlucky liquidators’ were also drawn up.

He insisted: ‘There is an option that Petrov and Boshirov were not liquidators – but performed some minor task.’

They might have ‘kept an eye on the area and passed information to the real liquidators’.

His account is likely to be dismissed by Britain as yet another bid by Moscow to muddy the water amid overwhelming evidence of the links of Petrov and Boshirov to the GRU.

The anonymous retired agent claimed Russian military intelligence uses ‘liquidators’ to kill enemies – but doubts that the men named as Alexander Petrov (left) and Ruslan Boshirov (right) are plausible as killers

Moscow has already come up with dozens of versions, the British have alleged.

But unusually the former GRU staffer conceded that the Russians use death squads, and might have done so in the Skripal case.

‘Of course, such people exist, not only in the Russian secret service but in any other too,’ he said.

He also claimed that the pair seen on CCTV may have been replaced by actors for the stilted RT broadcast last week when they went public to deny any involvement.

‘The main question about Petrov-Boshirov is not if they are killers or gay tourists,’ he said. The main one is if they are really Petrov and Boshirov.

‘It might well have been like this: the British secret service located two people and considered them to be liquidators.

‘And the Russian authorities quickly found two similar looking guys and “appointed” them Petrov and Boshirov.’

Unimpressed with their performance he said: ‘Somebody just did not spend much time searching – and first two suitable guys from the service were taken. They are soldiers and could not disobey the order.’

The pair in Salisbury should have been taught to watch out for CCTV cameras and mask their traces, he said.

‘The problem is that in England, as far as I know, the density of such cameras is very high.

‘So at the stage of preparation the task had to be different – not to avoid the cameras but to mask well. How to hide traces?

‘Well, the first thing is not to make any traces – not to live together (in the same hotel), not to arrive and leave together, not to approach the Skripals’ house together.’

Savaging their espionage tradecraft in Salisbury, he said: ‘If these two guys (Petrov and Boshirov) really are intelligence officers, if they were truly involved in this attempt to liquidate the Skripals, then it means that (our) whole authority has collapsed. And this is truly horrible.’

The only other option was that they were part of a ‘mafia’ operation to kill ex-GRU agent Skripal because he had been involved in criminal work, possibly in Spain, he said.

As I posted earlier, I had the same impression: that “Bellingcat’s research” is based mostly (99%) on the leak(s) but not on the “scientific evidence”. Do not use Science as the cover. It is called the profanation of Science.  You can demonstrate your point without using the false pretenses of the “scientific proof”.

TASS: Russian Politics & Diplomacy

mikenova shared this story from TASS.

MAGADAN, October 14. /TASS/. Bellingcat, a UK-based open source and social media investigation site, has conducted no investigation of its own into the Salisbury incident, instead it released data leaked by intelligence services ahead of the British delegation’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Rossiya-1 television channel.

“Bellingcat conducted no probe into the Salisbury incident. Belligcat had been silent to six months, saying nothing about what had happened there. They simply released information they had been given ahead of the British delegation’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly,” she said.

According to the Russian diplomat, what Bellingcat presented as its own findings in fact were materials provided by Western intelligence services. “But there is no investigation either into the Salisbury or Amesbury incidents. It is nothing but the use of pseudo-mass media as a tool to circulate such fakes,” she said.

If the British version of the affair is to be believed former Russian military intelligence (GRU) Colonel Sergei Skripal, 66, who had been convicted in Russia of spying for Great Britain and later swapped for Russian intelligence officers, and his daughter Yulia, 33, suffered the effects of a nerve agent in the British city of Salisbury on March 4. Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London rushed to accuse Russia of being involved in the incident. Moscow rejected all of the United Kingdom’s accusations, saying that neither the Soviet Union nor Russia ever had any program aimed at developing such an agent.

On September 5, British Prime Minister Theresa May briefed parliament on the investigation’s findings to declare that two Russians carrying passports issued in the names of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were suspected accomplices in the assassination attempt. Britain regards both men as GRU agents. Petrov and Boshirov in an interview to the RT television channel dismissed the charges.

In late September, The Daily Telegraph claimed it knew the real name of the person suspected of the assassination attempt against the Skripals. The newspaper said that the man originally identified as Ruslan Boshirov was in reality Russian Colonel Anatoly Chepiga, a holder of several government awards. Later on, a Bellingcat representative told the British parliament that the real name of the man identified as Petrov was Alexander Mishkin.

Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said following this publication that he had “no information that a man by this name has ever received any award.” Following Bellingact’s revelations about ‘Mishkin,’ Peskov said that the Kremlin would refrain from debates about medial allegations about Russian ‘GRU agents.’.

The dead drop: USB drives a new trend in the art of spying

Above: Watch SCMP reporter explore dead drops in Hong Kong

There was a time when Hong Kong was a hotbed of spies: during the Cold War undercover agents from America, China, Britain and Russia were active here. Those days are over, but for Hong Kong’s espionage enthusiasts there is a new reason for some old-school spycraft: art.

Over the past five years, Berlin-based artist Aram Bartholl has reinvented the dead drop, for an ongoing global art project.

On his website, Bartholl describes the project as an “anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space,” and explains that he started it when he was artist in residence at the art and technology centre Eyebeam in Brooklyn, New York in 2010.

A USB connector sticks out of a wall. Photo: Dead Drop

He hid five USB thumb drives around New York City, often embedded in concrete walls or curbs with just the tip sticking out. The idea was for people to plug the bit of the USB sticking out of the wall into their laptops and find… well, just about anything.  Each drive started out with just an explanation about the project, encouraging people to take or leave whatever files they chose. He also posted instructions on how to install their own dead drops on his website. The rest was up to the public, and they took to it avidly.

During the golden age of spying, the dead drop was an invaluable tool: a letter, picture or microfilm would be deposited in a secret hiding place — often a hollow rock, or false bit of brick — for another spy to pick up. That way information could be passed between agents without them ever having to meet in person and endanger their secret identities. In the era of email encryption, and satellite communication, it is doubtful that a dead drop is still a part of a modern spy’s repertoire, but thanks to Bartholl today, there are more than 1,500 active drops across the globe, on every continent save Antarctica.

The project courted controversy after instructions for manufacturing methamphetamine, and schematics for making a bomb were found on drops in Europe

Each drop is catalogued in an online database, giving its date of installation, size and location coordinates. Imagine our excitement when we saw, ninth on the list and installed on March 6, Hong Kong’s very own dead drop, located on the first floor of the Ho Sin Hang Engineering Building at the Chinese University in Sha Tin. We went searching for it and were able to find it without too much trouble.

The Sha Tin drop is a bit different from the typical USB stick drops. It is an online dead drop: once you get in range you are able to join a small wi-fi network and get access to the drop. The site you see is pirate themed, with an explanation about how the project works, a chat area, an online forum and a place to upload and download files.

The project has courted controversy after instructions for how to manufacture methamphetamines, and schematics for making a bomb were found on drops in Europe. We were excited to see what kind of forbidden information Hongkongers were keen to share and, while there were certainly no bomb instructions, the contents were politically provocative: a photograph of the Lennon wall at the height of the Occupy Central protests, and a full length digital copy of Under the Dome, former TV presenter Chai Jing’s documentary about pollution in China, which was recently removed from Chinese video sites.

We uploaded a few surprises ourselves but to reveal them here would hardly be good spying.

ВОВА ПИТОН

Не ходите к нему, бандерлоги
Там бандиты в кремлёвской берлоге
Раздаётся там жертв его стон
Пожирает их Вова Питон

Натянул он красивую маску
Смазал мёдом змеиное жало
Хочет всех подкупить своей лаской
И всё врёт без конца и начала!

На века он залез в зомбоящик
Держит всех он как в лагерной клетке
Правит всем как Кащей настоящий
И играет страной на рулетке

Он весь мир хочет взять на арапа
Всех и вся озомбировать хочет
Назначает врагов и сатрапов
И злорадно и злобно хохочет

Для него вы все лишь обезьяны
И источник его биллионов
Превратил он всех в стадо баранов
А страну – в свой общак без законов!

“Off The Rails?”

Of course not. The problems have to be formulated, analyzed, understood, comprehended, and addressed. 

But first of all and most of all, this is the overarching strategic condition: 
Restore the  Great WW2 Alliance. This might be the most suitable and viable design for the modern security architecture. 
The Alliance had its own difficulties at that time, it should work better now, and there are very powerful forces which do not want it to be restored and functioning. And lately, Skripal and his shenanigans might have been the very significant part of these forces. 
Driving the multiple wedges between the Allies was the logical Abwehr’s strategy which they pursued with the fanatical and dogged persistence, and this simple but effective strategy continues to be the same to this day. 
Consider the revision of the military doctrine in which “the West” is painted as the main “enemy”, reject this doctrine in both the spirit and the letter. Russia is the inseparable part of the Western Civilization, History, and Culture.
The most recent (last 20-25 years) phenomenon of the open, cynical, self-destructive, Mafioso Oligarchic Robbery of Russia is an Abomination. Address these issues, work together on eradicating the Global Organized Crime which came to play a certain role in the modern Intelligence Operations. These “by necessity” ties corrupt the Intelligence Organisations visibly and invisibly, it seems to me. Ziz iz not the Leftist position, this is the common sense position. 
The important, screaming “gaps in strategic intelligence” have been acknowledged and they are been addressed in order of importance.

INSIGHTS

Add note
 

Anytime a clandestine agency is in the global headlines on a daily basis, something strange is going on. That has certainly been the case with Russia’s military intelligence agency, known by its former abbreviation, the GRU.

British intelligence identified two suspected GRU agents as the culprits in the March nerve-agent poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, setting off a chain reaction of revelations about one of the men, identified as GRU Colonel Anatoly Chepiga, and his likely involvement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the 2015 assassination in Ankara of Chechen rebel commander Abdulvakhid Edelgiriyev.

On October 4, authorities in the Netherlands released a trove of information on an alleged GRU operation in that country aimed at hacking and disrupting international organizations including the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the Dutch investigation into the 2014 downing of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine.

The most emblematically risible piece of evidence was a taxi receipt showing that one of the men had traveled to a Moscow airport directly from GRU headquarters.

In addition, suspected Russian agents have been busted in Norway, Estonia, Greece, and Montenegro in recent months.

Off The Rails?

Writing in The Guardian on October 5, Moscow correspondent Andrew Roth called the developments “embarrassing.”

“The exposure of several consecutive European operations should raise questions about whether Russian military intelligence is being intentionally provocative or has simply gone off the rails,” Roth wrote.

Russian state-controlled and state-friendly media have widely reported official denials of any government involvement in the alleged incidents and have denounced them collectively as a new wave of “spymania.”

The Vesti nightly news report for October 5 was typical, arguing that the new accusations were both a “pretext” for imposing new, already planned sanctions against Russia and a bid to unify a fractured West on the cusp of the United Kingdom’s expected withdrawal from the European Union.

But, in other searches for explanations to the onslaught of revelations, some observers have speculated that the GRU was being undermined by another Russian security agency such as the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) or the Federal Security Service (FSB).

The GRU has benefited financially and in terms of prestige from the Kremlin’s conviction that Russia is engaged in a hybrid confrontation with the West, the argument goes, and other security agencies want a bigger piece of the action.

The GRU‘s headquarters in Moscow (file photo)

“I have heard many conspiracy theories along the lines that this is a struggle between the FSB and the GRU, but this is impossible,” Roman Dobrokhotov, editor of The Insider, a Russian publication that partnered with the open-source investigations group Bellingcat to publish many of the recent revelations, told Current Time TV. “It is just that people are trying to rationalize all this — they think it can’t really be so absurd. But for one thing, there is a famous maxim that you should never use a conspiracy to explain something that can be explained by incompetence. And this maxim applies to Russia even more strongly than in any other country.”

Dobrokhotov noted, for example, that his investigations had revealed recently that a GRUagent had sent money to a group in Serbia that was being used to carry out a coup in neighboring Montenegro using Western Union. And he used the address of GRUheadquarters on the delivery order.

Vladimir Frolov, a political analyst who is believed to have been a Russian intelligence agent involved in the handling of notorious FBI double agent Robert Hanssen, made a similar point for the website Republic.ru.

“Of course there have been no attempts by the Russian special services to somehow ‘undermine the GRU‘ by planting information in the media about military spies,” he wrote. “This is a popular myth. The Russian special services are in stiff competition with one another, but no one is going to settle matters by committing high treason or exposing state secrets.”

‘Military Mind-Set’

Part of the explanation for the GRU‘s lapses might lie in the nature of the organization itself. It is a large military operation that is ultimately controlled by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, one of President Vladimir Putin’s closest and reportedly politically ambitious friends, and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov, who has become the public face of Russia’s doctrine of “hybrid war.”

“Because Shoigu is ambitious, he’s increasing GRU operations abroad to make the Defense Ministry a bigger player in Russian foreign policy,” Russian security analyst Andrei Soldatov told The Telegraph in September.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu (left) and armed forces Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov (file photo)

Mark Galeotti, a nonresident fellow at the Institute of International Relations in Prague and an expert on Russian organized crime and the security forces, wrote in July that the GRU is emerging from a long funk that it endured under former Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov.

“The GRU is back,” Galeotti wrote. “Its budgets are buoyant, its confidence high and its role in international operations reflect its relatively aggressive, military mind-set, where accomplishing the mission is more important than avoiding risks.”

Journalist Dobrokhotov says the GRU‘s rapidly expanding agenda may partially explain its current embarrassing lapses.

“I think it has to do with personnel issues and that there isn’t money to properly train people,” he told Current Time, which is run by RFE/RL in cooperation with VOA. “They don’t have the proper resources. They send the same agents, who have already let the country down, out on new assignments a second time. It would seem to be pure chaos, just a mess. The whole world has learned the word ‘Novichok.’ Now it is time for foreigners to learn the word ‘bardak’ [mess]. It is the best description of what is going on.”

The agency, like the Defense Ministry as a whole, clearly seems to be having trouble coming to grips with the sheer amount of information publicly available on the Internet. In 2014, when the Kremlin was denying all involvement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine, researchers at Bellingcat and elsewhere had no difficulty finding photographs on social media posted by Russian soldiers and boasting of their activities in Ukraine.

Using open sources, Bellingcat has been able to put together a narrative about the shooting down of the MH17 passenger jet in July 2014 that runs circles around the various, often contradictory theories put forward by the Russian Defense Ministry itself.

Tip Of The Iceberg?

Other observers, though, are not so sure the incompetence theory explains the situation entirely. In recent years, the Kremlin has seemingly perfected the tactic of throwing out masses of theories and purported evidence and salacious stories as a way of confusing the information space and diverting attention.

As late as October 1, for instance, the mass daily tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda, probably Russia’s most broadly influential newspaper, published an interview with an anonymous “university instructor” who supposedly knows the alleged GRU agent in the Skripal case who is known as “Aleksandr Petrov.”

A photo released by the British police showing two men named as Aleksandr Petrov (right) and Ruslan Boshirov who are suspected of being GRU agents involved in the poisoning of Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal.

Petrov, the unidentified source said, is a Kremlin-connected businessman who provides high-ranking officials with “miracle supplements” that are not available in Russia.

Still other commentators have been reminded of the common practice of the Soviet-era KGB of sending intimidating signals to targets. Russian rights activist and former Soviet dissident Viktor Davidoff posted on Facebook that he left Moscow four years ago after returning home one day and finding bits of wire and melted solder on the floor of his apartment.

“Someone was installing eavesdropping equipment and was doing it dirty [intentionally],” he wrote.

In this context, the Kremlin could see the exposure of its overseas efforts not as weakness, but as evidence of its multipronged activity. The tip of the iceberg, so to speak.

New York Times London correspondent Ellen Barry touched on this idea in an October 5 post on Twitter.

“Lots of talk today about GRU incompetence, but it’s equally true that they’ve been getting away with an indefinite number of similar operations for an indefinite period *without* getting caught,” Barry wrote.

Police swoop on Zizzi following the poison attack in the small Wiltshire city on Sunday:

The pair are fighting for life while a police officer – who was the first cop on site – remains seriously ill following the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, Wilts, on Sunday.

Counter terror cops are investigating the possibility that Kremlin-linked assassins slipped deadly sarin nerve gas into Sergei’s present as daughter Yulia prepared to fly over from Moscow days earlier.

Another theory being probed is that the gas was sprayed into their faces or slipped into their drinks in Zizzi or the Mill pub.

Sergei Skripal, 66, and Yulia, 33, are pictured in the same Italian where they had lunch shortly before they were found slumped unconscious on a shopping centre bench in Salisbury, Wilts

A FORMER double agent and his daughter pose in the Zizzi restaurant at the centre of a Russian spy poisoning probe.

Sergei Skripal, 66, and Yulia, 33, are pictured in the same Italian where they had lunch shortly before they were found slumped unconscious on a shopping centre bench.

The pair are fighting for life while a police officer – who was the first cop on site – remains seriously ill following the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, Wilts, on Sunday.

Counter terror cops are investigating the possibility that Kremlin-linked assassins slipped deadly sarinnerve gas into Sergei’s present as daughter Yulia prepared to fly over from Moscow days earlier.

Another theory being probed is that the gas was sprayed into their faces or slipped into their drinks in Zizzi or the Mill pub.

Sergei and Yulia raise a glass for the camera at Zizzi in a picture believed to have been taken in 2016.

The(-)odor “Odor Test”

M.N.: This intimate knowledge of the Russian Passport system and the names of the operatives could come from Skripal himself and/or his associates and connections. Apparently, “Sergei Fedotov” is also a “wrong Fedot (Theodor)” – this is most likely his operational name also; and he probably functioned as the controller in this group of three. 

It might also be the wrong “Sergei”. “The-odor”: the smell test for determining the right or wrong Theodor is their “odor test”; they are what they smell like. And Mr. Skripal smells to me as the big adventure seeker. 

The role of Skripal puzzles me. I think he could be the Co-Demiurge for the past 8-10 years. The purpose of the Operation Novichok might have been the personnel rotation in the GRU’s and others “Agentura” outside Russia, with the banishment of about 150 Russian diplomats cum agents. 

The real “Novichoks” are the “Newcomers”, the  Russian Intelligence Services agents whom, it is very possible, Mr. Skripal selected in one way  or another himself or who were selected by the Demiurge, or by them jointly; and they intend to keep them under their control. 

This might have been the  design of the Co-Demiurges from the beginning. If it is so the worst of the crisis for Russia is over but the puzzle is unsolved.

I respectfully recommend to all the parties involved, to investigate Mr. Skripal very carefully, and also, and very importantly, to investigate who might be possibly behind him.

The hypothetical connection, as I see it now, is:

Theodore Tyro.jpg

Theodore is a masculine given name. It comes from the Greek name Θεόδωρος (Theódoros) meaning “God-given” (from the Greek words θεός, (theós) “God” and δώρον (dōron) “gift”).[1] The name was borne by several figures in ancient Greece, such as Theodorus of Samos and Theodorus the Atheist, but gained popularity due to the rise of Christendom.

In any form, it means “God-given”, or “gift of God”: as do the given names JonathanNathanaelMattaniahMatthewDosetaiBogdan (or Bohdan), AtaullahAdeodatus and Devadatta.

The feminine form of Theodore is Theodora. The names Dorothy and Godiva also mean “gift of God”.

It is of the same ‘64 series’ linked to not only Chepiga and Mishkin but also to other suspected agents such as Col Eduard Shishmakov, who is accused of the failed plot to assassinate the prime minister of Montenegro before its referendum to join Nato.

According to Fontaka, Fedotov previously travelled to the UK in March 2016 and March 2017 and again this year. It said he also flew to the Czech Republic with Mishkin in January and February 2014 ahead of an apparent operation to monitor the movements of Col Skripal, who at the time was said to be briefing Czech secret services.

It raises the prospect that Col Skripal, who had been living in the UK since a spy swap in 2010, had been a GRU target for at least four years. Chepiga and Mishkin returned to the Czech Republic in October 2014, the same month that Skripal travelled to the country to advise local intelligence officers on Russian espionage activities.

Russian Website Names Third Person Allegedly Involved In Skripal Poisoning

Russian website fontanka.ru says a GRU military intelligence operative whose name is Sergei Fedotov is allegedly the third Russian agent involved in trying to kill former spy Sergei Skripal in Britain earlier this year.

Cybersleuthing group Bellingcat has named two men who Britain suspects poisoned Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March as being GRU officers Aleksandr Mishkin and Anatoly Chepiga, who were awarded Hero of the Russian Federation medals by President Vladimir Putin for actions in Ukraine.

In a post on October 10, fontanka.ru said it has learned that Britain is ready to declare the 45-year-old Fedotov as an accomplice to Mishkin and Chepiga, who traveled to Britain under the names Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.

The website said records show Fedotov visited Britain in 2016, 2017, and 2018 and left the country on March 4 of this year, when Mishkin and Chepiga also flew out of Britain and the same day Skripal and his daughter were found slumped on a bench in the southern English city of Salisbury.

Furthermore, fontanka.ru said, Fedotov in January and February 2014 traveled to the Czech Republic at the same time as Mishkin and Chepiga.

The fontana.ru posting came the same day as a report by Czech Radio (CR), which said the two Russians shadowed Skripal in Prague in 2014 while he was in the Czech capital.

Britain said the Skripals were poisoned with Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union, and mentioned the two men who traveled with passports under the names of Petrov and Boshirov as officers from the GRU who carried out the attack.

Moscow has repeatedly denied any involvement in the poisoning, as have the two men identified by Britain.

The Skripals survived after weeks in critical condition, but Dawn Sturgess, a woman who authorities said came in contact with the poison after her boyfriend found a fake perfume bottle containing it, died in July.

Last month, The Telegraph newspaper said British police had identified a third Russian intelligence officer they believe carried out a reconnaissance mission before the attempted murder of Skripal.

The paper did not name him.

Russian spy chief ‘taken ill’ as Putin carpets him over novichok debacle | World | News

Details of the stinging rebuke emerged as the second hitman was exposed as a military doctor.

Alexander Mishkin, 39, was personally presented with a Hero of the Russian Federation award by the Kremlin chief.

Mishkin was named by investigative website Bellingcat as the suspect who flew to London, then travelled to Wiltshire in March under the pseudonym Alexander Petrov.

His identification came after that of co-accused Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga, also 39.

Bellingcat investigator Cristo Grozev said Mishkin grew up in Loyga, a remote village in northern Russia and was recruited to the GRU by the age of 24.

He joined St Petersburg’s military medical academy in 2003 and specialised in marine physiology.

Miskhin moved to Moscow nine years ago and served in Russia’s wars with neighbours Transnistria and East Ukraine.

Investigators cross-referenced addresses and phone numbers with a photo of Mishkin which emerged after the Skripal attack.

Mr Grozev said reporters from Russian website The Insider had reached Loyga and spoken to seven people who knew him.

“They confirmed that their homeboy Alexander Mishkin was the person who moved on to military school and then became a famous military doctor and who received the award of Hero of the Russian Federation,” he said.

“His grandmother, with whom he grew up…has a photograph, in her own words, that has been seen by everybody in the village of President Putin shaking Mishkin’s hand and giving him the award.

“Interestingly, we have not seen her because the moment we announced this press conference today, the grandmother was asked to visit her children – Mr Mishkin’s father and mother – in another town so she vanished from the village three days ago.”

British intelligence chiefs want to question Mishkin and Chepiga over the attack which almost killed Mr Skripal, 67, and daughter Yulia, 34, and led to the death of Dawn Sturgess 44, in July.

Security minister Ben Wallace warned yesterday that Britain must face up to the possibility of a chemical or biological attack.

Mr Wallace told a London conference: “Terrorists continue to explore new ways to kill us on our streets. Chemical and biological weapons are marching in closer.”

Russia reportedly angry at GRU over Skripal, OPCW blunders, may purge

Russia’s military leaders have reportedly called its intelligence service “deeply incompetent” after Western investigators accused its agents of being behind the nerve agent poisoning in England and an attempted hack into the global chemical weapons watchdog.

In the past two weeks alone, Western investigators found that agents of Russia’s military intelligence service — commonly known as the GRU — were behind the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and an attempted h ack into the global chemical weapons watchdog’s headquartersearlier this year.

Both missions ultimately failed, and investigators pointed fingers at GRU agents — Russia’s leaders are reportedly not happy.

The country’s defense ministry held a secret meeting on Saturday to discuss the recent reports of GRU blunders, and had some angry words to say, Russia’s MBK news site reported on Monday, citing an unnamed source.

The GRU was described in the meeting, MBK said, as “deeply incompetent,” “infinitely careless,” “morons,” and people that “would still wear the budenovka” — a phrase that means being outdated. The budenovka was a military hat worn in the late 1910s and early 1920s, shortly after the Russian tsar was deposed.

The defense leaders are also considering a “big sweep” at the GRU and ask some of its generals to leave, MBK said.

MBK was founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a prominent Kremlin critic.

Last month the UK accused two Russian men of traveling to Salisbury, England, and poisoning Skripal and his daughter with military-grade nerve agent this March, and said they were GRU agents traveling under pseudonyms.

Putin, whose government has long denied having any knowledge of the attack, initially claimed that the two men’s names — identified at the time as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov — “mean nothing to us,” then said that they were civilians.

The two men also went on national Russian TV to say that they only visited England to visit a cathedral.

Investigative journalism site Bellingcat, however, has since identified Petrov as Dr. Alexander Mishkin, “a trained military doctor in the employ of the GRU,” and Boshirov as Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, a highly decorated officer with the GRU.

Last week, the Netherlands also accused four Russian GRU agents of trying to launch a cyberattack on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the world’s chemical weapons watchdog. The OPCW was, at the time, investigating the nerve agent attack on Skripal and a reported chemical attack in Douma, Syria, where Russian jets have bombed.

The men — two tech experts and two support agents — were caught red-handed and attempted to destroy some of the equipment to conceal their actions, Dutch authorities said.

The Netherlands then determined that they were agents of the GRU after finding that one of their phones was activated near the GRU building in Moscow, and discovering a receipt for a taxi journey from a street near the GRU to the Moscow airport, the BBC reported.

Mark Urban, a British journalist who recently wrote a book about Skripal, wrote in The Times on Tuesday: “It would be surprising if this series of compromised operations did not trigger some realignment in Moscow, a further round of struggle between the spy bosses.

“The mockery of the GRU for its recent upsets, both globally and on Russian social media, must have rankled. Whatever the intentions of the Salisbury operation, they cannot have included opening decorated heroes of the agency up for ridicule,” Urban added, referring to Chepiga and Mishkin.

Putin’s popularity at home also hit a record low this year when he broke a 13-year-old promise not to hike the country’s national retirement age, which could mean that many Russians will miss out on a pension altogether.

Russian Novichok Suspects Shadowed Skripal In Prague, Report Says
 

mikenova shared this story from Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty.

The two Russian men suspected by British intelligence of poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in England in March shadowed the former double agent in Prague in 2014, Czech Radio (CR) has cited sources as saying.
In an October 10 report, CR cited unnamed Czech intelligence sources as saying that the Russians — whom cybersleuthing group Bellingcat says it has unmasked as military intelligence officers Anatoly Chepiga and Aleksandr Mishkin — visited Prague in 2014 and that Skripal was there at the same time.
“It looks like the Russians had a group of people that followed Skripal long before the attempt to assassinate him,” the publicly funded Czech radio station quoted one source as saying.
According to the report, the two Russians used the same names as those on the passports British authorities said they used when they traveled to Britain shortly before Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned: Ruslan Boshirov and Aleksandr Petrov.

British authorities allege that the two Russians smeared a Soviet-designed nerve agent called Novichok on the front door of Skripal’s home in the English city of Salisbury on March 4, the day the former Russian intelligence officer spy and his daughter were found incapacitated on a bench and rushed to the hospital.
Both survived after weeks in critical condition, but Dawn Sturgess, a woman who authorities said came in contact with the poison after her boyfriend found a fake perfume bottle containing it, died in July.
Czech Foreign Minister Martin Stropnicky said before leaving his post in June that Skripal, who settled in Britain after he was released from Russian prison and sent West in a 2010 spy swap, has visited the Czech Republic and several other European Union countries to consult with their intelligence services.
Media outlets have reported that Skripal was in the Czech Republic in 2012. The New York Times has reported that he “met with Czech intelligence officials on several occasions and visited Estonia in 2016 to meet with local spies.”
The Russian Embassy in Prague declined to comment on whether the two men had traveled to Prague, saying in an e-mail response that the “matter of border-crossing by foreign nationals is within the competence of the Czech Republic’s corresponding state structures,” CR reported.
The poisoning has added tension to already severely strained ties between Russia and the West, leading to additional U.S. and European Union sanctions on Moscow and to diplomatic expulsions of Russian and Western officials.
Russia denies involvement, but Bellingcat’s findings have added to the evidence against Moscow. The British-based independent investigative group also says that Chepiga and Mishkin have made multiple trips to various parts of Europe and elsewhere in the past few years.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 12 that the two men accused by Britain were civilians. In comments on October 3 in which he called Skripal a traitor and a “scumbag,” longtime Soviet-era KGB officer Putin said that the former Russian spy “continued cooperating with some secret services” after he went West in the swap.
Skripal, a former colonel in the Russian military intelligence agency known as the GRU, was convicted of treason in 2006 by a Russian court and had been serving a 10-year prison sentence when the swap, in which 10 sleeper agents including Anna Chapman were sent home to Russia from the United States, took place.

Last Saturday, the intelligence agency held a secret meeting.

The counterintelligence of the Netherlands monitored the GRU agents from the very beginning of the cyberattack operation on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), a source in the military department told journalist Sergey Kanev.

“Most likely, they tapped the telephone number of the second secretary of our embassy, Kostya Bakhtin, who constantly called up Khoroshevka (military unit 45 807) and discussed the details of the operation. By the way, he was also responsible for the technical issues and handed over the necessary equipment to these idiots,” the MBKh-Media quotes the source.

According to the security official, Bakhtin faces resignation and, “it is possible that not only his shoulder straps will be removed.”

According to the Dosye (Dossier), Bakhtin graduated from the 1st Department of the Military Diplomatic Academy (VDA). While studying he lived in the same house as Anatoly Chepiga, who is allegedly hiding under the name of Ruslan Boshirov, whom the UK accused of poisoning the Skripals. According to Kanev, the families of Bakhtin and Chepiga were friends with each other and spent holidays together.

After Bakhtin was sent to the Netherlands as the second secretary of the Russian embassy, the intelligence diplomat allegedly looked for ways to be introduced into the international investigation team of the Malaysian Boeing crash over the Donbas. According to Bellingcat, the plane was shot down from the Russian Buk complex. It is to be recalled that 298 people died as a result of the given plane crash.

Bakhtin’s last task, according to Kanev, was to coordinate the preparation of cyberattacks on the headquarters of the OPCW in the Hague.

On October 6, Roskomnadzor blocked the mirror of the MBK-Media’s website, which repeatedly published the results of Sergey Kanev’s investigations. The journalist himself went abroad because of the threat of arrest.

Salisbury Poisonings and Sergey Skripal

Salisbury Poisoning 2018 News Review from mikenova (8 sites) – Headlines

___________________________________

The Skripal Revenge

Did Skripal arrange all that to denigrate the GRU and to present them as the “hapless amateurs”, AS HIS REVENGE?!

Hypothetically, it is also possible that Skripal had organized this “plot”, including his “poisoning”, himself, in order to gain publicity, to get his share of the royalties from the book “The Skripal File”, and to exact the revenge on his former colleagues who jailed him. It is also possible that he introduced, skillfully, the implied allegation about the possible connections between the Ukrainian Intelligence, that he apparently was very close with, the Donbass separatists, the GRU (or more exactly, the Yanukovych) affiliated units, such as “Wagner Group”, and the “New Abwehr”, in order to demonstrate the GRU’s “incompetence”. Skripal has very big ego, extraordinary skills, experience, and connections, and he is perfectly capable of pulling this off. 

Me zinkz, humbly, that this line of thought should be investigated further, and very thoroughly. 

The “Operation Trump”, with its “demonstrative operational sloppiness”, so to speak, might also be a part of the “Skripal Revenge” phenomenon, with the similar aims: to sarcastically denigrate the GRU as the “hopeless and hapless amateurs” they became after “His Majesty” Skripal was separated from the agency; with the larger and more practical goal of manipulating the Trump Presidency into supporting “Yanukovich for Ukraine” via Manafort – Deripaska (- Mogilevich – Putin). And with even broader and the most ultimate, truly “New Abwehrian” in scope and breadth, goal of solidifying the gain of Ukraine into the German sphere of influence and limiting it to the others, including both Russia and the U.S. (See the German Hypothesis of “Trump – Russia Affair“.) This gain includes very much the relative realignment and reintegration of their respective Intelligence Services, of course. 

And since Skripal most likely, was the “New Abwehr’s” agent from the beginning, under the multiple covers; this whole “affair”, or the series of affairs related to Skripal starting from his release in 2010, is just the “Skripal chapter” in their  book, where everything is planned and staged for years ahead. 

Do they, the New Abwehr, plan to behead the Russian Military Intelligence in the same way they beheaded the US intelligence (Gen. Petreus) and some others, years ago?

Do they try to correct the strategic “mistakes of the past”, do they try now to finish off America first, and Russia second; and invisibly, this time? 

Think about it. 

Also, Skripal’s deep knowledge and deep connections with the Russian organised crime which became the global one, might help to explain the prominence of this factor and component which is evident in the recent operations. 

Skripal is an Ukrainian Jew, a “Khazarin” type. New Abwehr, traditionally Judeophobic, intends to teach GRU the lesson: Do not hire Jews, they will betray you. This is a self-serving, self-benefiting lesson to a competitor, opponent, and the potential enemy. Jews were always the valuable component in any Intelligence, including very much the Abwehr, who had no scruples whatsoever using the Jews as their agents and staffers. The upper echelons of Abwehr were, most likely, heavily Jewish, and therefore often anti-Hitler. 

The New, just like the Old Abwehr, wants to deprive the others of these talents thus saving them for themselves, just as they always did, starting with the Dreyfus Affair. 

It looks like the Demiurge is playing with Skripal: he lifts him up and throws him down on the rocks, and does it again and again, till he extracts the crab-meat with his beak, to his full satisfaction. That what he paid for, as he usually does, in his Faustian bargains. And he always gets more than he bargained for; on both ends of the stick, the good old Jewish way. 

The questions about the nature and the true origins of the medical illnesses in both the Salisbury and the Amesbury Novichok cases could and should be raised and addressed. To this day, as I understand it, and if I understand it correctly, the nerve agent poisoning is the suspected but not the definitive diagnosis in all the reported cases, and no tests confirmed specifically that it is the so called “Novichok”. The lab said that they cannot determine it

“Accusations and recriminations between Britain and Russia are set to escalate with the news that scientists at the Porton Down military research facility have been unable to establish exactly where the novichok nerve agent used to carry out the Skripal attack was manufactured.” – 4.3.18

The medical records should be examined very carefully and they could provide the clues. These illnesses might be very different phenomena. In the intelligence operations and the criminal acts the medical aspects can always be the subject to manipulations, due to their great uncertainty, and in the case of the novel illnesses and the secret nerve poisons, especially so. 

UK police say unclear if latest Novichok poisoning linked to attack on Skripals

The detectives, meanwhile, said that they are not able to resolve the case at this point. Too many mysteries. The claims that we know do not mean that we know. 

“Skripal” means “skripet”, not “skreplyat”. He is not a Paperclip, not even the “skrepka”. He is the “skripka”, the fiddle. He produces the tune but someone else plays him. And these are not the Western Intelligence Services. This is the Grandmother of them all, under their guises, the secretive and invisible New Abwehr, me zinkz. 

To use Skripal as a “paperclip” or the “anti-paperclip”, “anti-skrepka”, is not wise, it seems to me. You won’t get anything out of him except this monotonous criminal “scrip” and his potboiler memoirs. However, it is definitely worthwhile to examine what this mysterious, many-faced hydra is about and who is behind it. 

Und me zinkz humbly, that the good faith and good will cooperation and collaboration between the Western and the Russian Intelligence Services, and especially the Military ones, of course, in this and the other matters is the key. Ziz little opinion appears to be nothing more but the exercise in common sense. And it should be worth it. 

I cannot avoid mentioning that if all this mess with cyber-hacking in  the Netherlands, and the “Skripal poisoning” especially, which could now freely unravel, was officially approved and operationalized in the GRU, on any level, I can only say: “Kakoy uzhas! What a Horror! Something must be very wrong if these things are happening and the way they are happening.” 

The “silver lining”, the good thing about all this might be that now we will have very thorough and truthful investigation into all these matters by the Russian side, the results of which will be shared with their colleagues in due time, and as soon as possible. 

More general issues, such as the

  • Control and the Non-proliferation of WMD-s issues, specifically the Chemical Weapons.
  • New portable weapons in intelligence work. 
  • Biometric identification issues,

and the other issues are apparently, introduced also, among the others, in this “operational discussion”, if you wish to view it this way. 

The Demiurge enhances his control by introducing into the collective unconsciousness the “subliminal”subjects that are of interest to him.

Russian military reportedly unhappy with a series of embarrassing blunders by its spies abroad

Salisbury Poisoning Updates

INSIGHTS

Add note
 

Russia’s military leaders have reportedly called its intelligence service “deeply incompetent” after Western investigators accused its agents of being behind the nerve agent poisoning in England and an attempted hack into the global chemical weapons watchdog.

In the past two weeks alone, Western investigators found that agents of Russia’s military intelligence service — commonly known as the GRU — were behind the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and an attempted h ack into the global chemical weapons watchdog’s headquarters earlier this year.

Both missions ultimately failed, and investigators pointed fingers at GRU agents — Russia’s leaders are reportedly not happy.

The country’s defense ministry held a secret meeting on Saturday to discuss the recent reports of GRU blunders, and had some angry words to say, Russia’s MBK news site reported on Monday, citing an unnamed source.

The GRU was described in the meeting, MBK said, as “deeply incompetent,” “infinitely careless,” “morons,” and people that “would still wear the budenovka” — a phrase that means being outdated. The budenovka was a military hat worn in the late 1910s and early 1920s, shortly after the Russian tsar was deposed.

The defense leaders are also considering a “big sweep” at the GRU and ask some of its generals to leave, MBK said.

MBK was founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a prominent Kremlin critic.

Last month the UK accused two Russian men of traveling to Salisbury, England, and poisoning Skripal and his daughter with military-grade nerve agent this March, and said they were GRU agents traveling under pseudonyms.

Putin, whose government has long denied having any knowledge of the attack, initially claimed that the two men’s names — identified at the time as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov — “mean nothing to us,” then said that they were civilians.

The two men also went on national Russian TV to say that they only visited England to visit a cathedral.

Investigative journalism site Bellingcat, however, has since identified Petrov as Dr. Alexander Mishkin, “a trained military doctor in the employ of the GRU,” and Boshirov as Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, a highly decorated officer with the GRU.

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told RT’s editor-in-chief they had nothing to do with the Skripals’ poisoning. September 12, 2018.

Last week, the Netherlands also accused four Russian GRU agents of trying to launch a cyberattack on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the world’s chemical weapons watchdog. The OPCW was, at the time, investigating the nerve agent attack on Skripal and a reported chemical attack in Douma, Syria, where Russian jets have bombed.

The men — two tech experts and two support agents — were caught red-handed and attempted to destroy some of the equipment to conceal their actions, Dutch authorities said.

The Netherlands then determined that they were agents of the GRU after finding that one of their phones was activated near the GRU building in Moscow, and discovering a receipt for a taxi journey from a street near the GRU to the Moscow airport, the BBC reported.

Mark Urban, a British journalist who recently wrote a book about Skripal, wrote in The Times on Tuesday: “It would be surprising if this series of compromised operations did not trigger some realignment in Moscow, a further round of struggle between the spy bosses.

“The mockery of the GRU for its recent upsets, both globally and on Russian social media, must have rankled. Whatever the intentions of the Salisbury operation, they cannot have included opening decorated heroes of the agency up for ridicule,” Urban added, referring to Chepiga and Mishkin.

Putin’s popularity at home also hit a record low this year when he broke a 13-year-old promise not to hike the country’s national retirement age, which could mean that many Russians will miss out on a pension altogether.

Сергей Канев: В ГРУ нашли виновного в провалах: им оказался близкий друг Чепиги-Боширова — полковник Константин Бахтин

В минувшую субботу в Минобороны РФ прошло секретное совещание по следам громких провалов российской военной разведки в США, Англии, Голландии и Черногории. Среди прочих нелестных оценок звучали «дремучая некомпетентность», «беспредельное разгильдяйство», «дебилы» и «еще бы буденовки надели». Судя по всему, скоро в Главном управлении Генштаба РФ (ранее ГРУ) предстоит большая зачистка, и некоторых генералов попросят на выход.

2988732

В числе прочих виновных в неудачах разведки назвали работающего под «крышей» посольства РФ в Нидерландах полковника ГРУ Константина Бахтина, который оказался близким другом «отравителя» Скрипалей Анатолия Чепиги («Руслан Боширов»).

По словам источника «Центра Досье», в штаб-квартире ГРУ (в/ч 45 807, на сленге разведчиков — «Аквариум») детально проанализировали действия всех групп, засланных проводить диверсии и спецмероприятия за рубежом. Итог оказался неутешительным: сами разведчики и их непосредственные командиры не соблюдали элементарных основ нелегальной и агентурной работы за рубежом, общались между собой по телефонным номерам, зарегистрированным в московском регионе, а сами разговоры с указанием подробностей велись почти открытым текстом.

Особый разнос получили кибер-диверсанты, пытавшиеся взломать компьютерную сеть Организации по запрещению химического оружия (ОЗХО) в Гааге.

Как известно, в апреле этого года возле штаб-квартиры ОЗХО полиция Нидерландов задержала с поличным четверых россиян, имевших при себе дипломатические паспорта на имя Олега Сотникова, Алексея Моренца, Евгения Серебрякова и Алексея Минина. При задержании Моренец пытался разбить свой телефон, а при досмотре у него была обнаружена квитанция на поездку на такси в аэропорт Шереметьево от Несвижского переулка, где расположен комплекс зданий Минобороны РФ, в том числе в/ч № 26 165, в которой он официально служит. Моренец сохранил квитанцию для отчета в бухгалтерии воинской части.

По данным «Центра Досье», руководил группой хакеров в погонах кадровый офицер ГРУ Алексей Минин, окончивший 1-й факультет Военно-Дипломатической академии (ВДА), расположенной в Москве на ул. Народного ополчения дом 50 (в/ч 22 177, на языке грушников — «Консерватория»). Выпускники 1-го факультета ВДА (стратегическая агентурная разведка, на сленге грушников «пиджаки») в дальнейшем работают под «крышами» российских посольств, Аэрофлота и внешнеэкономических организаций. Еще один задержанный Евгений Серебряков служил в в/ч 26 165, которая расположена по адресу Комсомольский проспект дом 20, а Олег Сотников поступил в военную разведку после учебы в МАДИ.

По словам все того же источника в военном ведомстве, диверсанты изначально были обречены на провал: «Голландская контрразведка пасла их с самого начала. Скорее всего, они прослушивали телефон второго секретаря нашего посольства Кости Бахтина, который постоянно созванивался с «Хорошевкой» (в/ч 45 807) и обсуждал детали операции. Он, кстати, отвечал и за техническую сторону и передал этим придуркам нужную аппаратуру. В ближайшее время его отзовут в Москву и, возможно, снимут не только погоны».

Как удалось выяснить, полковник Константин Бахтин родился в 1978 году в Башкирии и проходил службу в в/ч 54 902 в Хабаровском крае, больше известной как военный аэродром Гаровка-2. В дальнейшем воинскую часть расформировали, а Бахтина, после собеседования, откомандировали в ВДА, и он поступил слушателем на 1-й факультет (стратегическая агентурная разведка).

Во время учебы в ВДА, Бахтина с семьей поселили в общежитии Российского государственного гуманитарного университета по адресу Кировоградская улица, 25, корп. 1. Проживал «студент» Бахтин в квартире № 10, а в квартире № 28 жил теперь уже знаменитый на весь мир один из «отравителей» Скрипалей Анатолий Чепига, он же Руслан Боширов. Чепиги и Бахтины дружили семьями и вместе отмечали праздники. Потом Бахтина отправили в посольство РФ в Нидерландах, и в качестве 2-го секретаря он усиленно искал агентурные подходы к международной следственной группе, расследующей обстоятельства гибели в 2014 году в небе над Донецкой областью малайзийского Боинга (по версии следствия, пассажирский лайнер был сбит российским комплексом «Бук», погибли 298 человек). А в последнее время полковник Бахтин координировал подготовку спецопераций по кибератакам на штаб-квартиру ОЗХО в Гааге.

По данным Судебного участка № 164 Тушинского района Москвы, в 2016 году Бахтину присудили штраф 30 тыс. рублей, но выяснить, где и как «накосячил» полковник, нам не удалось.

Тем временем, в Минобороны ходят усиленные слухи, что в середине сентября на ковер к Путину вызывали начальника Главного управления генштаба ВС РФ (ранее ГРУ) генерал-полковника Игоря Коробова, и по возвращении домой ему стало плохо.

Генерал Коробов проживает с супругой в элитном жилом комплексе «Ближняя дача» на Староволынской улице, в котором получили квартиры высокопоставленные чиновники, генералы ФСБ, ФСО, МВД и Следственного комитета. «Многоуровневая система безопасности, созданная в нашем комплексе соответствует уровню VIP, обеспечивает надежную охрану жителей нашего дома и членов их семей. Собственная инфраструктура предназначенная только для жителей комплекса, избавит вас от ненужных контактов», — указано на сайте ЖК «Ближняя дача».

Не исключено, что до конца года Коробова снимут с должности, а на его место поставят родившегося в Ленинграде генерала Сергея Гизунова. Питерца Гизунова называют глазами и ушами Путина в военной разведке. Биография путинского «смотрящего» строго засекречена, но имеется одна любопытная подробность: в сентябре 1999 года оперативники из ОВД «Черемушки» за хранение оружия задержали уроженца Украины Анатолия Девятку и провели у него обыск. Среди вещей обнаружилась визитка тогда еще подполковника Гизунова.

Особый разнос получили кибер-диверсанты, пытавшиеся взломать компьютерную сеть Организации по запрещению химического оружия (ОЗХО) в Гааге.

Как известно, в апреле этого года возле штаб-квартиры ОЗХО полиция Нидерландов задержалас поличным четверых россиян, имевших при себе дипломатические паспорта на имя Олега Сотникова, Алексея Моренца, Евгения Серебрякова и Алексея Минина. При задержании Моренец пытался разбить свой телефон, а при досмотре у него была обнаружена квитанция на поездку на такси в аэропорт Шереметьево от Несвижского переулка, где расположен комплекс зданий Минобороны РФ, в том числе в/ч № 26 165, в которой он официально служит. Моренец сохранил квитанцию для отчета в бухгалтерии воинской части.

По данным «Центра Досье», руководил группой хакеров в погонах кадровый офицер ГРУ Алексей Минин, окончивший 1-й факультет Военно-Дипломатической академии (ВДА), расположенной в Москве на ул. Народного ополчения дом 50 (в/ч 22 177, на языке грушников — «Консерватория»). Выпускники 1-го факультета ВДА (стратегическая агентурная разведка, на сленге грушников «пиджаки») в дальнейшем работают под «крышами» российских посольств, Аэрофлота и внешнеэкономических организаций. Еще один задержанный Евгений Серебряков служил в в/ч 26 165, которая расположена по адресу Комсомольский проспект дом 20, а Олег Сотников поступил в военную разведку после учебы в МАДИ.

По словам все того же источника в военном ведомстве, диверсанты изначально были обречены на провал: «Голландская контрразведка пасла их с самого начала. Скорее всего, они прослушивали телефон второго секретаря нашего посольства Кости Бахтина, который постоянно созванивался с «Хорошевкой» (в/ч 45 807) и обсуждал детали операции. Он, кстати, отвечал и за техническую сторону и передал этим придуркам нужную аппаратуру. В ближайшее время его отзовут в Москву и, возможно, снимут не только погоны».

Как удалось выяснить, полковник Константин Бахтин родился в 1978 году в Башкирии и проходил службу в в/ч 54 902 в Хабаровском крае, больше известной как военный аэродром Гаровка-2. В дальнейшем воинскую часть расформировали, а Бахтина, после собеседования, откомандировали в ВДА, и он поступил слушателем на 1-й факультет (стратегическая агентурная разведка).

Во время учебы в ВДА, Бахтина с семьей поселили в общежитии Российского государственного гуманитарного университета по адресу Кировоградская улица, 25, корп. 1. Проживал «студент» Бахтин в квартире № 10, а в квартире № 28 жилтеперь уже знаменитый на весь мир один из «отравителей» Скрипалей Анатолий Чепига, он же Руслан Боширов. Чепиги и Бахтины дружили семьями и вместе отмечали праздники. Потом Бахтина отправили в посольство РФ в Нидерландах, и в качестве 2-го секретаря он усиленно искал агентурные подходы к международной следственной группе, расследующей обстоятельства гибели в 2014 году в небе над Донецкой областью малайзийского Боинга (по версии следствия, пассажирский лайнер был сбит российским комплексом «Бук», погибли 298 человек). А в последнее время полковник Бахтин координировал подготовку спецопераций по кибератакам на штаб-квартиру ОЗХО в Гааге.

По данным Судебного участка № 164 Тушинского района Москвы, в 2016 году Бахтину присудили штраф 30 тыс. рублей, но выяснить, где и как «накосячил» полковник, нам не удалось.

Тем временем, в Минобороны ходят усиленные слухи, что в середине сентября на ковер к Путину вызывали начальника Главного управления генштаба ВС РФ (ранее ГРУ) генерал-полковника Игоря Коробова, и по возвращении домой ему стало плохо. Генерал Коробов проживает с супругой в элитном жилом комплексе «Ближняя дача» на Староволынской улице, в котором получили квартиры высокопоставленные чиновники, генералы ФСБ, ФСО, МВД и Следственного комитета. «Многоуровневая система безопасности, созданная в нашем комплексе соответствует уровню VIP, обеспечивает надежную охрану жителей нашего дома и членов их семей. Собственная инфраструктура предназначенная только для жителей комплекса, избавит вас от ненужных контактов», — указано на сайте ЖК «Ближняя дача».

Не исключено, что до конца года Коробова снимут с должности, а на его место поставят родившегося в Ленинграде генерала Сергея Гизунова. Питерца Гизунова называют глазами и ушами Путина в военной разведке. Биография путинского «смотрящего» строго засекречена, но имеется одна любопытная подробность: в сентябре 1999 года оперативники из ОВД «Черемушки» за хранение оружия задержали уроженца Украины Анатолия Девятку и провели у него обыск. Среди вещей обнаружилась визитка тогда еще подполковника Гизунова.

He is also believed to have purchased, in 2006, one of the most prestigious homes in Washington DC.

The 23,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom home — featuring Italian marble floors and a chandelier that had once hung in the Paris Opera House — was sold for $15 million.

The house in New York is listed as the address for the children and ex-wife Roman Abramovich, Mr Deripaska’s friend and former business partner. According to Treasury officials, when the government freezes assets, that means anyone who does business with a sanctioned person, and sanctioned companies, could be subject to sanctions themselves.

Putin’s ‘hero of Russia’ has been accused of the Skripal poisoning, but four years ago he possibly led a key attack against Ukraine. Here’s what happened
 

mikenova shared this story .

Four years ago, on the afternoon of 23 March, Russian troops with armour smashed through the walls of a Ukrainian airbase, Belbek, after a tense and bitter siege. It was the first serious military action between the two countries in Crimea not long before the territory would be annexed by the Kremlin.

I was among a group of journalists at the base reporting on the attack in which, according to recent reports, Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga, one of the men accused of carrying out the novichok poisoning in Salisbury, played a key role. The operation there was one of main reasons, it is claimed, the GRU officer had received the highly prestigious “hero of Russia” award at the direct orders of Vladimir Putin.

Another officer in the GRU, the Russian military intelligence service, Colonel Alexander Popov, had also received the same award for services in Crimea. Both of them were members of Russia’s Spetsnaz special forces at the time. Popov, it should be stressed, was not the second man allegedly involved in the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal, who travelled to Britain on a passport under the name of Alexander Petrov.

The role of Chepiga – who had used a passport in the name of Ruslan Boshirov for the Salisbury plot – in Crimea has been revealed by Novaya Gazeta in Moscow. The campaigning opposition newspaper, which has had a string of scoops over the years, had discovered that he and Popov had also been involved in two other operations in Crimea – the disarmament of a Ukrainian marine infantry brigade in Feodosia and the capture of the Council of Ministers building in Simferopol.

We, the journalists, covered the events in Feodosia and Simferopol. But the dramatic and memorable episode in Belbek served to encapsulate what was unfolding in Crimea during those extraordinary weeks following the street protests in Kiev – protests that had driven out the pro-Moscow government of Viktor Yanukovych, and made the future of Ukraine seem to hang in balance.

The conflict in Crimea was the start of the bitter battles that were to come in the east of Ukraine. The Russian presence in the peninsula was overt (unlike the Donbass) with President Putin arriving for the celebrations after a referendum declared illegal by Kiev and the West. But it was also one of the first examples of a secret, hybrid war carried out by the GRU for Moscow in which propaganda and cyberattacks were extensively used alongside open military operations.

The assault by the Russian forces on Belbek, with the Spetsnaz among them in black combat fatigues and Chepiga and Popov in their ranks if reports are correct, came with bursts of automatic fire and explosions from stun grenades. It was the culmination of a standoff, highly charged and emotional, that had become a cause célèbre, with Ukrainian forces barricaded behind the gates of the base while their families kept vigil outside.

Three weeks previously, my Crimean translator and I had gone to the airfield at Belbek, near Sevastopol, after hearing that it had been surrounded by Russian forces. The base was of strategic significance because it could be used to monitor the air corridor into Sevastopol, where the Russian navy’s Black Sea Fleet was based, as well having a complement of Mig-29 Fulcrum fighters, Mi-24 and Czech-made L-39 helicopter-gunships stationed there.

The Ukrainian regiment based there were not hardened soldiers but a mixture of pilots and technical support for the aircraft. They were, however, brave, dedicated and led by a redoubtable commanding officer, Colonel Yuliy Mamchur. An ultimatum came on the day we arrived, delivered by a Russian officer, who identified himself as Lieutenant Colonel Vladimir Mirnov of the Black Sea Fleet. He warned that the Ukrainians had 24 hours to surrender or face a full-scale attack.

Mamchur and his men and women had no intention of leaving. We stayed with them at the base to see what happened, but no attack materialised. But the respite did not last long: a few days later a Russian unit arrived during the night and took over a part of the base.

Mamchur, along with a small group of his soldiers and a few journalists, marched up the hill to meet them in the morning flying the Ukrainian and regimental flag and singing the national anthem.

The path was soon blocked by Russian soldiers in balaclavas, who shouted orders to turn back and then fired shots over our heads. But no one halted and there were increasingly angry threats. At one point, as several Russians took aim with their assault rifles, an officer stepped forward, pushing aside one of the raised rifles, and beckoned Mamchur forward to talk.

But then the colonel was kept waiting. The only person the Russians offered to carry out the negotiations was Yuri Balduk, a man who claimed to be a leader of the separatist “self-defence volunteers”, who turned up unshaven, in dirty jeans and trainers and unsure, at first, about what he was meant to do.

It appeared to be an obvious attempt to snub and belittle. Balduk demanded that Mamchur hand over the base to him – the colonel refused. There followed an example of how dysfunctional the Ukrainian government back in Kiev was at the time. The colonel called the Ministry of Defence. It was a short conversation. “They asked me to use my own initiative, that has been the case ever since the day the Russians had arrived wanting to take over the base. We have no guidance, we can expect no help, we are really on our own here,” he explained, spreading his hands.

The retired Russian colonel and former double agent for MI6 was in a critical condition in hospital for more than two months after being exposed to novichok in Salisbury. He was given refuge in the UK after being jailed in Moscow for treason. Mr Skripal came to Britain as part of a high-profile “spy swap” in 2010 in which four men were exchanged for ten Russian “sleeper agents” in the US. In this image he is speaking to his lawyer from behind bars in Moscow in 2006.

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May spokes with Wiltshire Police’s Chief Constable Kier Pritchard near where the Skripal’s were found. Britain expelled 23 Russian diplomats over the nerve agent poisoning and suspended high-level contacts, including for the World Cup on March 14. Theresa May told parliament that Russia had failed to respond to her demand for an explanation on how a Soviet-designed chemical, Novichok, was used in Salisbury.

British soldiers were deployed soon after the attack to help a counter-terrorism investigation into the nerve agent attack. One of the places they were asked to help out with was Skripal’s home and it’s surrounding. They were asked to remove a vehicle connected to the agent attack in Salisbury, from a residential street in Gillingham.

Yulia Skripal, speaking for the first time, said she felt lucky to have survived the nerve agent attack in Salisbury which left her fighting for life. Ms Skripal said her life had been “turned upside down” by the assassination attempt. But the Russian national added she hoped to return to her homeland one day, despite the Kremlin being blamed for the attack.

Ten Ukrainians were allowed to go into the control tower and the hangars to check the aircraft. The Russian stationed snipers drove up an armoured personnel carrier, and put in perimeter defences. The Ukrainians decided to have a game of football, inviting the Russians to join in, but they refused to play.

After a while the Russians agreed to stay at the part of the base where they were, the Ukrainians returned to their side with the headquarters building. The standoff continued. In our travels around Crimea we heard the Russians were getting increasingly annoyed at the publicity Manchur and his men were attracting. Other Ukrainian bases were following their examples of defiance and Moscow wanted the matter brought to an end. The time for games was coming to a close.

We could see more Russian troops arriving in the area, including Spetsnaz setting up camp on a nearby field one Friday. They were not talkative, but not particularly hostile either. The advice was to stay away from the base. A couple of them spoke surprisingly good English.

Mamchur felt an attack was imminent. He ordered his troops to lock away their weapons; attempts at armed resistance would fly against the odds facing them – but there would be no surrender.

Waiting for the attack on that Saturday was a strange experience. Under an azure blue sky and apple blossom in the air two young lieutenants, Galina Vladimirova Volosyanick and Ivan Ivanovich Benera, got married. Local champagne and lemonade, figs and nuts, chocolates and cakes, had been laid out on a long trestle table covered with a bright golden plastic cover. Toasts were drunk, troops clapped and whistled as the bride and groom kissed each other.

The mood soon change,  a vocal and aggressive pro-Russian crowd had turned up outside the base demanding it be handed over. Members of the “self-defence volunteer” group joined them and tried to destroy a video camera mounted on the gate, first shooting at it and then pulling it down with ropes.

The Ukrainian forces inside were getting increasingly worried by reports that some of their relatives had been harassed, their homes broken into. Posters had been put up with photographs of Mamchur and other officers, calling them traitors to Russia. The commander’s wife, Larissa, who had come into the base earlier, told me she had seen posters in Sevastopol demanding that her husband be executed for his supposed treachery. She was deeply worried about what may happen.

The attack came at 4.48pm with three armoured personnel carriers (APCs) punching a hole through the perimeter wall of the base and crashing in followed by soldiers. A few of the Ukrainians were injured, none seriously.

The Ukrainians lined up and faced the Russians who crouched 10 feet away, guns pointed, behind ballistic shields. There were jeers exchanged between the two sides. A Russian officer, trying to calm the situation, shouted: “It’s OK, no more shooting, you’re safe.” The riposte was: “You are making us safe by attacking us?! We are here without guns, why are you hiding behind guns and your masks?”

But it was obvious there was little the Ukrainians could do. As more and more Russians came in, Mamchur called his men to attention and led them in singing the national anthem. The Russians, in combat stations, watched in silence as the verses were roared out, followed by full-throated cries of: “Glory to Ukraine, Glory to our heroes.”

Mamchur then told his men: “You have done all that honour demands. You should be proud of yourselves, I am proud of you.” He had been summoned to a meeting with senior Russian officers and he would, if allowed, come back and tell them what had been agreed.

The journalists were told by the Russians to leave the base. We all shook Mamchur’s hand and wished him luck. There was, we felt, something heroic in his obstinate yet calm refusal to give in against overwhelming odds.

The members of the media were ushered out by the Russians through the hole created by their armour. Memory cards were taken away from cameras, laptops had to be switched on and inspected. A Spetsnaz soldier said to me: “I am sorry, but I am doing my job, you are doing yours. We are soldiers. It’s the politicians you see.”

I went back to Belbek the next day. The Russian flag was flying over the base. Things were calm and peaceful after all that had happened the day before. A group of Russian soldiers sat in the sunshine, on the football field smoking and drinking coffee.

Several of them had been among those searching the journalists as we left, taking memory cards. “Of course we knew some photos would get out, you guys are good at hiding things like that,” said one. “But no matter, we have peace now.” What of Yuliy? “He is being questioned. We have nothing against him personally,” a sergeant shrugged. “He kept us waiting for a long time, but he would say he was doing his duty. He was quite brave, Soviet training you see.”

I met Mamchur again a couple of years later in Kiev. He was an MP, returning to Ukraine after refusing an offer to join the Russian military. We sat in a park reminiscing about those days in Belbek.

As for the Colonels Chepiga and Popov, could we have met them unknowingly at the time? I called and asked two Crimean translators I had worked with at the time. One, like me, simply did not know. The other thought he recognised him from the photographs which have appeared at the base over the past week and several times on the afternoon of the attack. “Perhaps he came to Crimea as a tourist and just got caught up in it all,” he laughed.

Волна разоблачений агентов российских спецслужб все никак не кончится. Вчера выяснилось, что еще в апреле из Нидерландов депортировали четырех россиян с дипломатическими паспортами, которые пытались взломать компьютеры Организации по запрещению химического оружия в Гааге – в то самое время, когда эта организация расследовала применение “Новичка” в Солсбери. У одного из этих россиян, Алексея Моренца, нашли при себе квитанцию на такси в Шереметьево от воинской части, связанной с ГРУ. После публикации этих данных издание The Insider установило паспортные данные еще 305 сотрудников ГРУ – именно столько в базе ГИБДД нашлось граждан, чьи автомобили приписаны к адресу той же военной части, которую на Западе обвиняли в самых скандальных хакерских атаках последних лет. Злорадных комментариев в Сети по этому поводу хоть отбавляй.
