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.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a popular reference to William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, in which Juliet seems to argue that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family’s rival house of Montague, that is, that he is named “Montague”.

Per NBC News, Trump not planning to reach out to Obama or others figures targeted in Sayoc’s bomb campaign.
“I think we’ll probably pass,” he said.
NOTABLE: Asked by @KellyO whether President Trump will reach out to former President Obama or others targeted with mail bombs, Trump simply says: “If they wanted me to, but I think we’ll probably pass”
Sayoc’s white van, with all of its elaborate political displays and anti-Democrat sentiment is exactly the type of thing people tend to pull out their smartphone and snap a picture of these days. Expect to see a lot of posts and images like this in the coming hours and days from people who snapped it before this weeks events.

MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. London’s claims that Russia was behind what the UK describes as an attempt to poison former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia are false and may stem from the ‘domestic political climate,’ Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told the Euronews channel in an interview on the eve of his visit to Brussels.

“First, the assessments put forward by a number of countries do not reflect the actual situation, and second, they definitely are not leading us to a brighter tomorrow,” Medvedev said. “In the majority of cases, similar assessments and similar sanctions are not meant to punish anyone, or do anyone harm, or demonstrate an international position. No! They have other reasons why they do it; so as to pander to the domestic political environment.”

He expressed regret “any evaluation like this definitely does not promote international cooperation.” He recalled that similar practices that existed “in the Soviet era, when the Soviet Union would use labels …, but this did not lead to anything good.”

“That is why we believe that everyone has to be careful when furnishing assessments,” Medvedev noted

Anti-Russian rhetoric powerless

Prime Minister Medvedev said that anti-Russian rhetoric was coming from the United States, too, but it was unable to affect Moscow’s policies whatsoever.

“Nine times out of ten, this anti-Russia crusade is being pursued entirely for domestic political purposes, to hold on to power, form a government or achieve some other goal. But, certainly not to sway Russia’s position. It cannot be influenced, something that everyone realizes very well,” he stated.

“We are perfectly aware of the fact that all that everything connected with Russia in the United States now is after various objectives. For all intents and purposes, its internal political squabbling. Feuds between the Republicans and the Democrats and discord inside the Republican Party,” Medvedev said adding that the current events looked like “anti-Russian hysteria.” The same can be said about the European countries,” Medvedev emphasized.

Not acquainted with Downing Street’s ‘suspects’

When asked by the interviewer about the two Russians, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, whom London alleges of being involved in the poisoning of the Skripals, Medvedev refrained from commenting.

“I do not know. I will not comment, just because I am not acquainted with those people, neither am I acquainted with the comments to a sufficient degree,” he said when asked if he believed the two men’s story about the reasons for their visit to Salisbury, where the alleged poisoning took place. “I do not know. How can I know?”

If the British version of the incident is to be believed, former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal, convicted in Russia of spying for Britain and his daughter Yulia on March 4 were infected by a Novichok class nerve agent in Salisbury. London rushed to claim that Moscow was highly likely involved in this incident. However, Russia strongly dismissed all speculations on this matter.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on September 5 briefed parliament on the investigators’ findings to declare that London suspected two Russians of committing the alleged assassination attempt. The men, she said, carried passports issued in the names of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov. British secret services claimed that both individual were agents of the Main Directorate (the former GRU) of Russia’s General Staff. Petrov and Boshirov appeared on Russia’s RT television channel to dismiss Britain’s charges, including the claims they were Russian secret service officers.

Почему спецслужбы больше не пытаются заметать следы – За рубежом

mikenova shared this story from Rus.Postimees.ee.

При этом складывается впечатление, что спецслужбы проводят операции все более открыто. “На мокрые операции снова появился спрос”, – отмечает Эрих Шмидт-Энбом, немецкий эксперт, изучающий деятельность спецслужб. Термин “мокрые операции” – из жаргона КГБ: так обозначали те, в ходе которых может или должна пролиться кровь.

“Спецслужбы больше не стесняются действовать открыто

Для Шмидта-Энбома поворотным моментом стал 2006 год, когда в Лондоне от отравления радиоактивным полонием-210 скончался бывший сотрудник ФСБ Александр Литвиненко, пишет DW.com. Хотя его дело до сих пор не удалось полностью раскрыть, Шмидт-Энбом уверен, что за преступлением стоит ФСБ. Аналогичным способом злоумышленники действовали и в Солсбери, где в начале марта 2018 года Сергей Скрипаль и его дочь Юлия были отравлены нервно-паралитическим веществом “Новичок”.

“Мы видим, что спецслужбы больше не заметают следы, как раньше: в прошлом они, к примеру, устраивали своим жертвам автокатастрофы. Сегодня это слегка вышло из моды – теперь спецслужбы больше не стесняются,” – рассказывает Вольфганг Кригер (Wolfgang Krieger), профессор Марбургcкого университета, изучающий деятельность спецслужб.

Основная мишень российских спецслужб – перебежчики

На взгляд Кригера, инцидент с отравлением Сергея Скрипаля – типичный пример работы российских и советских спецслужб. В основном жертвами подобных атак становятся так называемые перебежчики – агенты российской или советской разведки, которые затем стали сотрудничать с зарубежными спецслужбами.

Перебежчиком можно назвать и Скрипаля, который был двойным агентом: будучи полковником Главного разведывательного управления (ГРУ) Генштаба Минобороны России, он также сотрудничал с британской разведкой МИ-6. В 2004 году Скрипаль был арестован в России по обвинению в госизмене и приговорен к 13 годам лишения свободы.

Однако в 2010 году тогдашний президент РФ Дмитрий Медведев помиловал его и еще трех человек, осужденных за шпионаж, чтобы обменять их на агентов российских спецслужб, арестованных в США. После освобождения Скрипаль получил убежище в Великобритании: он жил с семьей в Солсбери, в небольшом доме, который за 200 тысяч фунтов купила для него британская разведка.

Скрипаль продолжал сотрудничать с МИ-6

По всей видимости, Скрипаль не сидел там сложа руки, отмечает Эрих Шмидт-Энбом. К примеру, в 2012 году он вместе с агентами МИ-6 ездил в Прагу, чтобы помочь местным спецслужбам разоблачить российских шпионов, знакомых ему еще со времен работы в ГРУ. А летом 2016 года Скрипаль был в Таллине и предоставил эстонским спецслужбам информацию, позволившую им разоблачить трех агентов Кремля.

Бывший полковник ГРУ также консультировал испанскую разведку на тему связей русской мафии в Испании с влиятельными политиками в Москве. “Он продолжал сотрудничать с западными спецслужбами, что не нравилось его бывшим коллегам в России“, – резюмирует Шмидт-Энбом.

Следует отметить, что отношения между Москвой и Лондоном традиционно были напряженными. После окончания холодной войны большинство западных разведслужб прекратили проводить операции против СССР, а затем стран СНГ. Однако британская МИ-6 стала исключением, рассказывает Шмидт-Энбом. К примеру, британские спецслужбы активно проявили себя во время чеченской войны. К тому же, именно в Чечне МИ-6 удалось завербовать многих российских перебежчиков, подчеркивает эксперт.

String of own goals by Russian spies exposes a strange sloppiness | World news

mikenova shared this story from The Guardian.

It must go down as one of the most embarrassing months ever for Russia’s military intelligence.

In the 30 days since Theresa May revealed the cover identities of the Salisbury poison suspects, the secretive GRU (now GU) has been publicly exposed by rival intelligence agencies and online sleuths, with an assist from Russia’s own president.

Despite attempts to stonewall public inquiry, the GRU’s dissection has been clinical. The agency has always had a reputation for daring, bolstered by its affiliation with special forces commando units and agents who have seen live combat.

But in dispatching agents to the Netherlands who could, just using Google, be easily exposed as graduates of an elite GRU academy, the agency appears reckless and absurdly sloppy.

One of the suspected agents, tipped as a “human intelligence source” by Dutch investigators, had registered five vehicles at a north-western Moscow address better known as the Aquarium, the GRU finishing school for military attaches and elite spies. According to online listings, which are not official but are publicly available to anyone on Google, he drove a Honda Civic, then moved on to an Alfa Romeo. In case the address did not tip investigators off, he also listed the base number of the Military-Diplomatic Academy.

That was the same school where Anatoliy Chepiga, the alleged true identity of the Russian suspect in the Salisbury poisoning, finished his education. Viktor Suvorov, a GRU agent who later defected to the west, described the academy as so secret that Soviet citizens could be jailed just for revealing its existence.

The internet has now made it far harder to hide that evidence. But the GRU apparently thought that would not matter.

Meanwhile, most of the alleged agents could be found online.

One of the men, Aleksei Morenets, an alleged hacker, appeared to have set up a dating profile.

Another played for an amateur Moscow football team “known as the security services team” a current player told the Moscow Times. “Almost everyone works for an intelligence agency.” The team rosters are publicly available.

Russia has claimed that the investigations are fake and that researchers are in league with western intelligence. But most of the evidence to uncover the spies was already out there, and conveniently timestamped on social media.

The saga began after May’s announcement last month, when Vladimir Putin ordered the two Salisbury suspects to appear on television. There, the two men fumbled through an awkward story about visiting Salisbury twice to see the cathedral, while an editor for state television suggested that they were gay. Homosexuality is largely treated as taboo in Russia and the government passed a law banning “gay propaganda” in 2013.

It didn’t help. One of the two men was outed as a likely GRU colonel anyway, after online investigators dug up photographs from his military service and leaked passport records.

Along the way, the researchers from Bellingcat and the Insider also recognised that the men were issued sequentially numbered passports by a special division, making it easier for anyone with access to a leaked database to identify them.

And then came Thursday’s bombshell: four men outed by Dutch investigators for attempting to hack into the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (as well as Malaysia’s investigation into a downed jetliner).

The alleged spies were caught carrying enough telephones to fill an electronics store. Moreover, like all meticulous Russians on a business trip, they held on to their taxi receipts from GRU headquarters.

Russia will publicly deny the latest reports and revelations about the alleged GRU agents. It has no other alternative. But 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.

In June 2017, Mark Urban drove to Salisbury to meet a retired Russian spy. Urban – a BBC Newsnight journalist and author – was contemplating writing a book about east-west espionage after the end of the cold war. The spy was Sergei Skripal. He had kept a low profile in Britain since arriving in 2010 as part of an international spy swap. There were no signs he was engaged in active espionage. Arriving at his modest suburban home, Urban spotted a stack of jigsaw puzzles and a fiddly Airfix scale model of HMS Victory. Another model, of an English country cottage, sat on a bookshelf – a gift from the MI6 agent who, two decades earlier, had recruited Skripal in Spain.

Skripal was arguably the least well known of a small group of elderly defectors from Moscow living in the UK. The most famous, Oleg Gordievsky, betrayed the KGB for ideological reasons and did enormous damage to the Soviet espionage machine. If a list existed of traitors the Kremlin might wish to kill, Gordievsky’s name was surely at the top.

The subject of Urban’s engrossing, topical book is not quite in the same league. Skripal was a gung-ho former Soviet paratrooper who participated in daring undercover missions in China and Afghanistan. The GRU (military intelligence) invited him to join it in late 1979. Skripal spent his first foreign tour in 1980s Malta.

By the time he was posted to Madrid, the country to which he had sworn an oath, the USSR, had gone. Everyone was trying to survive in the new economy and Skripal sought to invest in a hotel in Malaga. Then something better came up – an approach from a pleasant businessman who charmed Skripal’s wife, Liudmila, and bought presents for their kids. One day, the businessman let it be known he had “friends” in the British government. Skripal agreed to work for MI6. The arrangement lasted eight years. He was Britain’s only asset inside the GRU. He did not know about operations, but willingly handed over details of its organisation and command structure – a big intelligence coup.

Urban tells the story of Skripal’s undercover career well, much of it previously unknown and gleaned from around 10 hours of conversations with him at his Salisbury home. The spooks paid Skripal the measly sum of $3,000 per meeting. There were sessions – unnoticed by Moscow – in Spain, Portugal, Malta, Italy and Turkey. Back in Russia, Skripal continued to communicate with his British handlers. He wrote in invisible ink in the margins of a Russian novel, and got his wife to deliver it to MI6 during a holiday to Spain. He was, it appeared, an anti-Gordievsky: not greatly interested in geopolitics, but rather keen on the cash. In 2004, the FSB security service arrested him after a Spanish tipoff.

The key question this book doesn’t answer is why two GRU hitmen tried to poison Skripal this March with a show-off kind of murder weapon: novichok. True, Vladimir Putin takes a dim view of traitors. But Skripal had served a prison sentence. He was traded for Russian deep-cover agents living in the US – an honourable swap under the old rules. Unlike Alexander Litvinenko, murdered in 2006, Skripal had not publicly criticised Russia’s notoriously thin-skinned president. Urban writes that Skripal told him: “We are afraid of Putin.” Even so, he didn’t consider himself at risk, and his occasional lectures to western intelligence agencies were hardly enough to make him a threat.

One conclusion is that the GRU decided to kill him because it could – in a thuggish weekend excursion approved from the top. It was a message directed at Russia’s ruling elite, and to anyone thinking of collaborating with the west and its spies. The plot was a sign of contempt for the UK, a playground for Putin’s not-very-good assassins. The irony is that, as Urban tells it, Skripal was “an unashamed Russian nationalist”, even as he lived out his twilight years in an MI6-purchased semi. He spent much of the day watching Perviy Kanal – Russia’s foremost state propaganda channel – and approved of the country’s land-grab in Crimea. One wonders if he would have voted for Putin, given the chance.

When Skripal woke up in Salisbury hospital, five weeks after his poisoning, he was initially reluctant to believe he might have been the target of a Russian government murder plot. He had “difficult psychological adjustments to make”, Urban writes. The journalist’s attempts to meet him again failed; his whereabouts now are unknown.

The Skripal Files is a compelling first instalment of a story that will continue. Urban’s deadline came too early to include details of the suspected would-be killers – a pair of career GRU officers, caught on CCTV. They were mocked at home and abroad after explaining in an interview that they went to Salisbury twice to see the city’s beguiling cathedral spire – and turned back on the first trip because of daunting slush. But there is nothing funny about Moscow’s efforts to reshape the world. Putin, it appears, is fond of using exotic state murder as a way of instilling terror. The GRU has had a bad few months. But it will carry on, plotting new crimes and tracking new targets.

Сотрудники ФСБ проводят проверку по факту утечки личных данных подозреваемых Лондоном россиян. Скандальная история о том, что в отравлении Скрипалей виновны Петров и Боширов, получила продолжение.

Речь идет о публикациях их анкет на получение загранпаспортов и данных о пересечении границы России из систем “Роспаспорт” и “Перемещение”. Силовики ищут сотрудников МВД, которые продали журналистам эту информацию о Руслане Боширове и Александре Петрове.

“Таким образом любую анкету можно перевернуть с ног на голову, а заполнявшего ее человека превратить в кого угодно. Просто подобная информация, содержащая личные данные, не должна находиться в свободном обращении”, – цитирует собственный источник, знакомый с ситуацией, “Росбалт”. В данном случае Петров и Боширов оказались заложниками ситуации.

Отметим, 14 сентября The Bellingcat и The Insider опубликовали копии служебных документов ФМС с паспортными данными Александра Петрова со штампом “Совершенно секретно”. В свою очередь “Новая газета” сообщила, что указанный там код – номер телефона, принадлежащий ГРУ. Позже интернет-издание “Проект” написало, что им прислали документ, который якобы свидетельствует о причастности к спецслужбам и Руслана Боширова.

Ранее Александр Петров и Руслан Боширов рассказали о поездке в Солсбери и призвали реальных отравителей Скрипалей принести им извинения. По словам Петрова и Боширова, из-за шумихи они не могут спокойно выйти на улицу, опасаются за свою жизнь и безопасность близких.

An injured victim lies on a stretcher after the attack in Crimea carried about by a gunman

This is my humble opinion: this is the premeditated act planned by the intelligence service (possibly Ukranian – German: “Roslyakov – REICH”), and carried out by the professional killer (or his team), and not by Roslyakov, who was killed by them also, to cover the tracks. 

It is very possible that the real culprit is Sergei Skripal who sent his thugs to perform this act. 

Теракт в Керчи – в нападении могли участвовать до 10 человек

“19:58: Выжившие во время теракта рассказали о группе нападавших в 9-10 человек. По словам местной жительницы, вначале в помещении колледжа бросали взрывпакеты, а позже начали расстреливать людей, которые пытались убежать с места происшествия.”

“Telegram-канал Mash приводит слова очевидцев трагедии в Крыму:

«На втором этаже открывали все кабинеты, убивали всех, кого могли найти, кто попадался на глазах. Трупов полно, трупов детей полно».

«Стреляли по ученикам и преподавателям — по всем, кто попадался им на пути. Кроме того, кидали взрывпакеты», — рассказал RT один из учеников колледжа.”

The role of the computer games and the “on-line conditioning” have to be explored also. 

My respectful advice to the Russian authorities is to investigate this hypothesis in details. The similarity in style with the US school shootings is striking. – M.N. – 10.17.18

Crimea shooting: NINETEEN people are killed in school massacre
 

mikenova shared this story from News | Mail Online.

Nineteen people were killed and at least 40 were injured in a gun and bomb rampage at a school in Crimea today.

Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalked his college halls with a shotgun, shooting 17 dead and then killing himself in the school library. Another pupil died in hospital hours later as seven fight for their lives.

The teenager, who is thought to have obtained shotguns and rifles with a hunting licence, also set off a homemade nail-bomb in the canteen which blew out the windows but did not kill anyone, according to reports.

Pictures from the scene showed the shooter’s bag filled with what appeared to be ten homemade bombs and dozens of shotgun rounds. The boy’s father was tonight taken into police custody for questioning.

Video showed terrified students running and screaming during the attack on Kerch Polytechnic College where the shooter was a fourth-year pupil who ‘hated his studies and teachers’.

One student said: ‘There was a guy with a gun and shooting everyone he could find.’ Another added: ‘The walls were covered in blood, we climbed the fence to escape.’

Dozens of soldiers rushed to the school around 12pm local time suspecting a terrorist attack. But Russian police later classified the killing as a mass murder.

Bloody victims, most of whom were teenagers, were taken to hospital in ambulances and minibuses. The director of the college said: ‘There were lots of corpses, corpses of kids.’

Politicians in Crimea, which Russia seized from Ukraine in 2014, were quick to apportion blame for the attack.

The speaker of the Crimean parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov, suggested Kiev may have been behind the atrocity.

He said: ‘The entire evil inflicted on the land of Crimea is coming from the official Ukrainian authorities’.

Close Putin ally senator Franz Klintsevich, a member of the Russian upper house security and defence committee, said: ‘I don’t think that the hand of ISIS is able to reach Kerch.

‘It is all more like a Ukrainian imprint. It could be official structures or crazy nationalists, who are ready to do anything in their hate to Russia.’

But a friend of the shooter told the BBC he ‘hated the technical school very much’ and had vowed ‘revenge’ on his teachers.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting in the southern Russian resort of Sochi with his Egyptian counterpart, declared a moment’s silence for the victims.

‘This is a clearly a crime,’ he said. ‘The motives will be carefully investigated.’

The college is a vocational school for 850 teenagers aged 14 to 18.

Soon after the attack, Russian officials said they were investigating the possibility that it was terrorism.

Troops with armoured personnel carriers were sent to the scene. Parents were told to collect their children from the city’s schools and kindergartens for their safety.

However, Russia’s Investigative Committee, the state body that investigates major crimes, said later that it was re-classifying the case from terrorism to mass murder.

An employee at Kerch’s hospital said dozens of people were being treated for their injuries in the emergency room and in the operating theatre.

Anastasia Yenshina, a 15-year-old student at the college, said she was in a toilet on the ground floor of the building with some friends when she heard the sound of an explosion.

‘I came out and there was dust and smoke, I couldn’t understand, I’d been deafened,’ she said. ‘Everyone started running. I did not know what to do. Then they told us to leave the building through the gymnasium.’

‘Everyone ran there… I saw a girl lying there. There was a child who was being helped to walk because he could not move on his own.

‘The wall was covered in blood. Then everyone started to climb over the fence, and we could still hear explosions. Everyone was scared. People were crying.’

Photographs from the scene of the blast showed that the ground floor windows of the two-storey building had been blown out, and that debris was lying on the floor outside.

Emergency services teams could be seen in the photographs carrying wounded people from the building on makeshift stretchers and loading them on to buses and ambulances.

A second pupil at the college, who gave his name as Sergei, said he had taken a few steps out of the building into the street when the first blast went off. He was hit by debris from the blast and injured in the leg.

Sergei, 15, said he ran to another building, but said he could hear more explosions going off every few seconds. He took cover and after the attack was over, he was taken to hospital in an ambulance.

‘I arrived at the hospital, the scene there was awful. They’re bringing in people all covered in blood, some with arms missing, some with legs missing.

The attack drew parallels to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in the US in which 12 pupils and a teacher were killed – with some saying the shooter used it as inspiration.

Russian spies’ passports identify more than 300 GRU agents
 

mikenova shared this story from News | Mail Online.

Putin’s hapless hackers caught red-handed in Holland inadvertently outed more than 300 other agents in their most extraordinary blunder, it was revealed today.

Spy agencies around the world now have a database of hundreds of Russian agents – all because two of the men caught in The Hague had diplomatic passports using their real names and dates of birth.

News agency Bellingcat, who revealed the true identities of the Salisbury assassins, say the two men are both registered as living at the GRU’s Military Academy in Moscow.

Alexey Morenets’ Lada is also registered at GRU’s cyber warfare department down the road – and investigators say by searching other vehicles registered to the same address they have identified 305 other members of the 26165 unit accused of hacking targets all over world.

To add to Mr Putin’s embarrassment the leaked list includes his spies’ names, dates of birth and mobile phone numbers – unmasking and effectively dismantling his most elite cyber attack unit.

Why were the Russian spies allowed to leave Holland without being arrested?

Police and the secret services expelled the four GRU spies back to Russia instead of arresting of them because of their diplomatic status.

Restraining the Russians, the Dutch officers undercovered a host of other evidence which would tie them not only to this hacking plot but to others round the world.

The men were carrying at least ten other mobile phones and more than £33,000 in cash – 20,000 in euros and 20,000 in US dollars.

They also had with them a plastic bag filled with empty Heineken beer cans and soft drink bottles, which they appeared to have taken from their hotel room in a bid to cover their tracks.

‘They were clearly not here on holiday,’ the head of the Dutch intelligence service joked yesterday.

The hackers were escorted back to the airport and expelled from The Netherlands. They returned to Moscow.

British government officials yesterday said it was for the Dutch to explain why the suspects had not been arrested.

But it is understood it was because they were on diplomatic passports.

Adding to the Russian President’s woes, it was also revealed today:

  • His country faces new sanctions to punish him for launching a four year cyber Cold War;
  • His team of four spies caught at The Hague carried out blunder after blunder that revealed all the missions they carried out since 2015;
  • Evidence gathered by British and Dutch spies helps them uncover GRU’s giant spy network;
  • US vows to arrest and prosecute seven agents if they ever leave Russia for hacking and fraud;

The extraordinary moment the four ‘dumb Bonds’ were arrested at the Marriott in The Hague was revealed by the hotel’s manager today.

Vincent Pahlplatz said police arrived at the hotel in the city’s upmarket Statenkwartier district and asked him what rooms the men were in when the spies all emerged from the lift.

But there were ‘no guns, no handcuffs or force’ and the men left calmly until one threw his smartphone on the ground and started stamping on it.

Mr Pahlplatz told AFP:  ‘The police went to the front desk and said we would like to talk to a few of your guests,” Pahlplatz told AFP. At that very same time, the four men came out of the elevator into the lobby, coincidentally.

‘The police officers simply told the men: “Will you please follow me’ — and they did”. They followed the police outside and never returned. Some people were checking in and they didn’t even notice what was going on’.

He added: ‘It sounds like James Bond but there was no James Bond involved. No Aston Martins, no revolving number plates, nobody sky diving from the rooftop. It’s a very dull James Bond story’.

The West vowed last night to dismantle Vladimir Putin’s cyber war network amid warnings he could target a UK power station after a wave of ‘reckless’ attacks.

In a dramatic move yesterday, British and Dutch authorities named four members of Russia’s GRU military intelligence unit caught red-handed trying to infiltrate the inquiry into the Salisbury poisoning.

The four bungling officers were captured in the act during an extraordinary attempt to hack into the world’s chemical weapons watchdog – while sitting in a car outside its headquarters.

Security officials also accused the GRU of mounting cyber attacks against the Foreign Office and the military laboratory at Porton Down.

Hours later, the United States accused a string of Kremlin agents of trying to hack into anti-doping bodies and a nuclear power station.

GRU’s links to the ‘Fancy Bears’ hackers group revealed

GRU hackers operate under a dozen different names, with the most well-known being ‘Fancy Bears’ group, according to allegations announced over the last 24 hours.

A Fancy Bear hack obtained confidential medical records for international athletes from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in August last year.

British cyclists Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome were among those who had records released on their use of banned substances for a legitimate medical reasons.

Another attack, outlined by UK authorities this morning, was made on the US Democrat party, which was targeted by Fancy Bear in 2016 when documents from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) were published online.

Whitehall sources said they were confident the EU would approve sanctions against Russia this month to target those involved in the use of chemical weapons. The decision to reveal unprecedented details of a counter-espionage operation – which leaves relations between Russia and the West at a post-Cold War low – was designed to humiliate Putin, and expose the Kremlin’s ‘malign’ activities around the world.

Calling Russia a ‘pariah state’, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ‘Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, which they have done in terms of these cyber attacks, we will be exposing them.’

Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan warned that Russia could try to shut down a British power station or bank next. He said: ‘On the one level this is frankly absurd and comical because they have been so cack-handed. But also it’s very dangerous because the next target could be a power station or trying to stop a bank from doing its work. They are doing very, very dangerous and malign things.’

The gang of four GRU spies, who operated under the codename Sandworm, targeted the headquarters of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague in April, when officials were trying to confirm the origin of the novichok nerve agent used to poison former spy Sergei Skripal.

But Dutch intelligence agents, acting ‘in partnership’ with their British counterparts, intercepted the Kremlin spies in a hotel car park near the OPCW headquarters.

The inept GRU officers – who have been deported to Moscow – were caught trying to hack into the organisation’s computers using equipment hidden under a coat in the back of their hired car.

It was reported last night that they escaped criminal charges because they carried diplomatic passports.

The gang left behind a treasure trove of evidence about Russia’s techniques and their links to the GRU.

These extraordinary errors included:

Russia dismissed the dossier as ‘Western spy mania’. Its foreign ministry said the allegations were a ‘rich fantasy of our colleagues from Britain’.

  • The cyber unit’s ‘burner’ mobile phones had their sim cards activated outside the headquarters of the GRU in Moscow;
  • Taxi receipts found in their Dutch hire car show that the men travelled from their spy centre to Moscow airport ahead of their hacking mission;
  • The four GRU agents being identified the moment by secret services as they arrived at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport – and in an extra giveaway they were even met by a Russian handler;
  • They were followed and a MI6/Dutch spy team caught them red handed trying to hack into the OPCW’s wifi network using a boot full of kit;
  • When confronted they tried to smash and stamp on their phones and equipment;
  • The hackers had tickets, Google Maps routes, train tickets and Google searches setting out their mission;
  • They stayed in the Marriott Hotel next door to the OPCW and took out their bag of rubbish including cans of Heineken and packets of ham to avoid leaving evidence;
  • They targeted the OPCW just two days before they released their interim report into the Salisbury poisoning – the timing gave them a motive;
  • Two of the four men had the passport numbers 0135555 and 0135556 – showing that they were issued at the same time – a clear sign they are state-sponsored spies;
  • A laptop seized linked the men to cyber attacks across the globe including a selfie of a spy posing at an Olympic event in Rio in  2016 – where he also apparently hacked into athletes’ medical records;

Laptop belonging to Russian spies was also used to hack MH17 investigation in Malaysia

The Russian intelligence officers expelled from the Netherlands after the Dutch government thwarted a major cyber attack had targeted the investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

A laptop belonging to one of the four Russian spies caught trying to hack into the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW in the wake of the Salisbury Novichok attack could also be placed in Brazil, Switzerland and Malaysia.

Data found on the laptop of the GRU intelligence agency officer put it as having been in use in Kuala Lumpur, and linked it to the MH17 investigation.

It had been used to specifically target Malaysian police and the country’s attorney general, Dutch authorities announced at a press conference in the Hague today.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine in July 2014, killing 298 people, with an four-year investigation finding Russia responsible earlier this year.

British ambassador to the Netherlands Peter Wilson said there was proof of ‘malign activity’ in Malaysia, stating: ‘This GRU operation was trying to collect information about the MH17 investigation.

‘And targeted Malaysian government institutions, including the attorney general’s office and the Royal Malaysian Police.’

But the botched operation is a severe embarrassment for Putin and follows the failed assassination attempt against Mr Skripal in March. A UK security official said: ‘For GRU officers to be caught in this way would be considered a pretty bad day at the office.

‘Judging from past form elsewhere, discrediting the (Salisbury) investigation could well have been their motivation.’

It emerged last night that one of the GRU gang, Yevgeny Serebriakov, played in a Moscow football side known to opponents as the ‘security service team’.

In a joint statement last night, Theresa May and Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said the decision to go public with their findings was designed to shine a light on the GRU’s ‘unacceptable’ behaviour. ‘The GRU’s reckless operations stretch from destructive cyber activity to the use of illegal nerve agents, as we saw in Salisbury,’ they said. ‘That attack left four people fighting for their lives and one woman dead.’

The leaders said the co-ordinated response showed the West was ready to ‘uphold the rules-based international system and defend international institutions from those that seek to do them harm’.

Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, also revealed that the GRU’s cyber-warfare arm launched a so-called ‘spear-phishing’ attack against the Foreign Office. The attack, which involved sophisticated fake emails, was detected and blocked by the UK’s cyber-defence systems.

A similar remote attack was detected the following month against Porton Down, the military lab which first identified the use of the Cold War nerve agent novichok in Salisbury.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said yesterday’s revelations would show the world what Putin was up to, adding: ‘This is the evidence… that what we are getting from Russia is fake news, and here is the hard evidence of Russian military activity.’

He said the West would work together ‘to counter this pattern of cyber attacks – the new type of attack that the whole world is having to deal with’.

Loverboy Lexa, footballer ‘Zhenya’ and a baby-faced kingpin who used the alias ‘Karen Millen’: Putin’s ‘dumb Bonds’ hacking squad unmasked

They were supposed to be top spies, hidden from the world and operating behind a veil of secrecy.

But after Dutch, British and US authorities blew the lid off Putin’s ham-fisted hacking squad yesterday, the identities of the GRU’s ‘Unit 26165′ can now be revealed.

The gang include computer geeks – who advertised themselves on Moscow dating websites and played in the city’s amateur football leagues .

They served alongside more hardened members of the Kremlin’s security apparatus, who organised and oversaw the group’s many trips abroad and acted as the hackers’ minders.

Alexei Morenets, 41, is an officer in Russia‘s GRU and believed to be one of its top hackers – but also responsible for most extraordinary blunder of The Hague mission.

It appears that Morenets inadvertently outed more than 300 other agents working for the GRU in Moscow.

Investigators have found he travelled on a diplomatic passport using his real names and date of birth.

News agency Bellingcat, who revealed the true identities of the Salisbury assassins, say he is registered as living at the GRU’s Military Academy in Moscow.

Morenets’ Lada is also registered at GRU’s cyber warfare department down the road – and investigators say by searching other vehicles registered to the same address they have identified 305 other members of the 26165 unit accused of hacking targets all over world.

To add to Mr Putin’s embarrassment the leaked list includes his spies’ names, dates of birth and mobile phone numbers – unmasking and effectively dismantling his most elite cyber attack unit.

The online expert also uses the online nicknames Lexa and Alexey, according to the FBI, and even  uploaded a picture of his face to the website mylove.ru using a photograph taken in the Russian capital.

When he wasn’t targeting anti- doping agencies and helping spread fake news in a bid to level allegations of substance abuse at western athletes, the 41-year-old appeared to be seeking women aged 21 to 30 in Moscow.

It was also possible to geolocate the profile to within 650 feet of the GRU headquarters.

And the profile picture appears to have been taken close to the intelligence base. The famous Panasonic building is clearly in shot, indicating it was taken on Komsomolsky Prospekt.

Evgenii Serebriakov, 37, also known as Zhenya, is believed to be hiding in Moscow.

The cyber expert used an email with the name Casey Ryback, a character played by Steven Seagal in the film Under Siege, which tells the story of terrorists attacking an American ship.

His laptop was packed with details about previous misisons and even contained selfies from the 2016 Olympics in Brazil where Russian athletes’ doping samples were tampered with and US athletes’ medical records leaked.

His computer also had the Spiez laboratory in its search history and train tickets to Bern where a wanted to hack more chemical weapons inspectors.

He was travelling under his real name and date of birth – and in another fatal error was registered as living at the GRU’s Moscow headquarters.

Artem Malyshev, 30, is described by the FBI as a ‘senior lieutenant’ in Unit 26165.

Born in a small rural town near the picturesque Valdai National Park in the north west of Russia, he went on to become a member of the GRU’s hacking unit.

Documents released yesterday state he used the names ‘djangomagicdev’ and ‘realblatr’ online as part of the hacking conspiracy.

The FBI want him over the hack on the 2016 US presidential election, with the indictment stating he stole and released documents ‘to interfere with the election’.

He is also charged over a wider group of offences, related to hacks on the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) and the US anti-doping agency.

Baby-faced Ivan Yermakov, 32, was born in the grim, industrial Chelyabinsk region of eastern Russia.

US authorities say he was involved in one the first hacks attributed to Unit 26165, reconnaissance of Westinghouse Electric Company’s (WEC) in Pennsylvania, a company involved in the supply of power to the Ukraine.

FBI documents state he would often pose as women online.

He used the names Kate S. Milton, James McMorgans and Karen W. Millen online.

Yermakov was also involved in ‘spearphishing’ attacks on WADA in 2016, and activities at the Rio Olympics.

Dmitriy Badin, 27, is the youngest of the seven men named by the US yesterday as being part of the hacking group.

He was previously named among 12 agents who allegingly hacked into American computers to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.

He was born in Kursk, close to Russia’s border with Ukraine, a city which is forever associated with the Soviet Union’s tank battle victory over the Nazis in the Second World War.

He has previously been described as an ‘Assistant Head of Department’ in the GRU hacking squad.

The latest FBI poster states he is wanted over ‘computer intrusions of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and other victim entities during the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics and afterward’.

Hackers’ minder and GRU spy Alexey Minin, 46, appears to have been in The Hague to protect two hackers trying to break in the OPCW’s WiFi.

Bearded Minin is one of the oldest in the group and could be the man who stamped on his phone after being arrested in Holland in April

The FBI appear to know little about him including where he was born, his date of birth or if he has any aliases.

But it is believed he is an intelligence officer who accompanies and protects GRU hackers on their worldwide trips.

He is wanted for conspiracy to commit computer fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering, the US State Department said yesterday.

The FBI wanted poster also says he should be considered ‘armed and dangerous’ and he is believed to be in Russia.

Oleg Mikhailovich Sotnikov, 46, appears to be a Russian agent in Holland to protect the GRU’s cyber experts.

The FBI said he is wanted for money laundering offences in the US and may have been involved in criminal activities since 2014.

Like his comrade Minin, little is known about him, including his real name because Sotnikov is believed to be his alias.

He posed for a photograph found on  Serebriakov’s laptop outside a Dutch station when they bought tickets for their next mission in Bern.

But the team never made it to Switzerland after they were arrested in the Marriott in The Hague and deported from Holland.

Sotnikov is considered armed and dangerous and believed to be in Russia.

Colonel Alexsandr Osadchuk, 55, is the oldest member of Unit 74455 and is thought to order operations from Moscow.

He was born in the small city of Obninsk, not far from Moscow in 1962, when Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev was in power.

Pictures show the well-decorated officer dripping in medals, suggesting he has enjoyed and long and successful military career. He is likely to have been in the GRU at the same time as double agent Sergei Skripal.

The FBI say Osadchuk ‘held the rank of Colonel and was the commanding officer of Unit 74455’. His wanted poster adds: ‘Osadchuk was last known to be located in Moscow, Russia’.

He is wanted over the US election hacking.

The GRU: Putin’s army of spies trained to hunt down traitors around the globe including Sergei Skripal

The GRU – an acronym for Glavnoye razvedyvatel’noye upravleniye or Main Intelligence Directorate – was founded in 1918 after Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution.

Lenin insisted on its independence from other secret services and the GRU was seen as a rival by other Soviet secret services, such as the KGB.

According to Yuri Shvets, a former KGB agent, GRU officers were referred to as ‘boots’ – tough but unsophisticated.

‘The GRU took its officers from the trenches,’ he said, whereas KGB picked its agents from the USSR’s best universities.

The GRU would train agents and then send them to represent the Soviet Union abroad as military attaches in foreign embassies, according to historian John Barron.

But once a member of the GRU, it is believed to be exceptionally difficult to leave. And those who do so to joined foreign agencies were punished savagely.

Viktor Suvorov, a GRU officer who defected to Britain in 1978, said new recruits were shown a video of a traitor from the agency being burned alive in a furnace as a warning.

Unlike the KGB, the GRU was not split up when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.

It has a special status and answers directly to the chief of the general staff, one of the three people who control Russia’s portable nuclear control system.

GRU chiefs are reportedly picked by Putin himself.

The GRU is now considered Russia’s largest foreign intelligence service, according to Reuters, dwarfing Moscow’s better-known Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), which is the successor to the KGB’s First Chief Directorate.

Sergei Skripal, a former colonel in GRU , was considered by the Kremlin to be one of the most damaging spies of his generation.

He was responsible for unmasking dozens of secret agents threatening Western interests by operating undercover in Europe.

Col Skripal, 66, allegedly received £78,000 in exchange for taking huge risks to pass classified information to MI6.

In 2006, he was sentenced to 13 years in a Russian labour camp after being convicted of passing invaluable Russian secrets to the UK.

A senior source in Moscow said at the time: ‘This man is a big hero for MI6.’

Unit 26165’s trail of blunders: How Putin’s elite globe-trotting hacking squad left a trail of clues including a selfie at the Olympics, a pile of beer cans and a TAXI RECEIPT from their spy base to airport

Western intelligence yesterday revealed the trail of clues that bungling Russian spies known as Unit 26165 left in their wake as they waged a war of disinformation across the globe.

Kremlin agents working for the GRU targeted FIFA, the World Anti-Doping Agency and the Organisation for the Prevention of the use of Chemical Weapons as it investigated both the Salisbury novichok attack in the UK as well as the Douma chemical weapons attack in Syria, the international investigation of the downing of MH17 and a US company providing nuclear power to Ukraine.

President Vladimir Putin’s elite squad even created the fake ‘hacktivist’ group Fancy Bears to disseminate misleading statements designed to exonerate Russia of doping allegations and instead level them at the US.

But it was yesterday revealed that the spies left a trail of clues including blunder after blunder during their international campaign.

The bungling started when four Unit 26165 spies  – two cyber specialists and two field agents – were caught in the Hague trying to use a fake wireless router to acquire logins to the wireless network of the Organisation for the prohibition of Chemical Weapons in April.

At the time the OPCW was investigating the GRU’s Novichock attack on Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.

What the Russians had in the back of the rental car

WiFi panel antenna – This would have projected a fake network, known as an ‘evil access point’, into the building.

The chemical weapons analysts would have tried to connect to this access point thinking they were connecting to their own WiFi network.

When staff logged into the fake router the laptop stole their username and password, allowing agents to break into the OPCW’s computer network.

Using the network they could spy on operations within the building, including staff investigations into the March 2018 Salisbury Novichok attack.

The directional antenna were pointing specifically at the OPCW offices which means the fake network would have had a stronger signal than the real signal.

This would have lured the devices away from the real network.

Smartphone (4G) – The hackers may have created a hotspot using their mobile.

This was then projected into the building using the antenna.

Computer – Using the computer they would have been able to siphon off staff login details.

A laptop belonging to one of the four was linked to Brazil, Switzerland and Malaysia, with the activities in Malaysia related to the investigation into the 2014 shooting down of flight MH17 over Ukraine.

Bag with battery – The battery would have been for powering the computer because when these attacks are mounted the device is left running for a long time.

‘That was just to power the computer, and ancillary equipment’, Professor Woodward told MailOnline.

‘When you mount these attacks you often leave the device in situ running for a long time so it needs a hefty battery and most of those need to have their voltage converted to run, say, laptops.’

Transformer – The battery voltage would need to be converted in order to run the computers and phones.

One spy was caught with a mobile phone that had been activated on the GRU’s doorstep in Moscow. Then a taxi receipt revealed a journey from GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport the very day that four agents arrived in Amsterdam, when two of the spies were seen using consecutive passport numbers.

Operatives who would later be found to have cleared out an Aldi bag of empty lager cans from their hotel room to try and hide DNA evidence.

And when the men were arrested, they were caught with €20,000 (£17,000 or $23,025) and $20,000 (£15,000) in cash. The group also tried – and failed – to destroy a mobile phone, and they were caught with incriminating laptops.

One laptop even contained selfies from the 2016 Olympics in Brazil where Russian athletes’ doping samples were tampered with and US athletes’ medical records leaked.

And late last night it was revealed that a laptop had the Spiez laboratory in its search history. Train tickets revealed that the spies planned to visit the centre in Bern on April 17. It houses the Swiss body that protects the population against nuclear, biological and chemical attacks or other dangers.

The revelation came as the website Bellingcat circulated a dating profile thought to belong to agent Alexei Morenets – whose geolocation was listed as within 650 metres of the intelligence service’s headquarters. The site also found the spy’s car registered to the GRU’s department for cyber warfare using a 2011 database of ownership.

Another agent, Evgenii Serebriakov, used an email with the name Casey Ryback, a character played by Steven Seagal in the film Under Siege, which tells the story of terrorists attacking an American ship, today’s The Times reports.

Operatives used a laptop, Wi-Fi dongle and a rudimentary battery pack stored in the boot of a rented Citroen C3 in a botched cyber attack on the global chemical weapons watchdog.

Using a technique from the early days of Wi-Fi, they attempted to break into the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’s network in The Hague by tricking staff into logging into their fake router.

They parked the car at a local hotel and disguised the Wi-Fi antenna hidden inside the router, so staff would login. The laptop then stole their username and password, allowing the agents to get into the OPCW’s network.

Through the network they could spy on operations within the building, including investigations into the Salisbury Novichok attack.

It also emerged today that Russia’s bungling GRU agents left a trail of clues that helped authorities link them to the string of cyber attacks.

Among the items revealed at an extraordinary briefing in The Hague was a mobile phone one of the men was caught with having been activated near the Russian military intelligence’s headquarters in Moscow.

Also discovered on one of the spies was a taxi receipt showing a journey from a street next to the GRU base to Moscow Airport on April 10, the day that the four agents later arrived at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

The team of four GRU officers travelling on official Russian passports entered the Netherlands on April 10 – but it turned out that two of them were carrying documents with consecutive passport numbers.

On April 11, they hired a Citroen C3 and scouted the area around the OPCW – all the time being watched by Dutch intelligence. To hire the car they were required to give their addresses – and the operatives opted for Moscow locations, according to The Times.

The agents, who stayed at a Marriott Hotel next to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague, were also found to have used public WiFi hotspots to conduct their operations in the Netherlands.

And they were photographed performed reconnaissance of the OPCW headquarters, where the nerve agent sample was being independently verified.

When leaving The Hague, the men took all the rubbish from their room – including empty cans of Heineken beer and what appeared to be an empty cold meat packet in an Aldi bag – in a further bid to cover their tracks.

On April 13, the GRU officers were said to have parked a rental car with specialist hacking equipment outside the OPCW’s headquarters to breach its systems – but British and Dutch intelligence thwarted the operation.

Laptop belonging to Russian spies was also used to hack MH17 investigation in Malaysia

The Russian intelligence officers expelled from the Netherlands after the Dutch government thwarted a major cyber attack had targeted the investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

A laptop belonging to one of the four Russian spies caught trying to hack into the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW in the wake of the Salisbury Novichok attack could also be placed in Brazil, Switzerland and Malaysia.

Data found on the laptop of the GRU intelligence agency officer put it as having been in use in Kuala Lumpur, and linked it to the MH17 investigation.

It had been used to specifically target Malaysian police and the country’s attorney general, Dutch authorities announced at a press conference in the Hague today.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine in July 2014, killing 298 people, with an four-year investigation finding Russia responsible earlier this year.

British ambassador to the Netherlands Peter Wilson said there was proof of ‘malign activity’ in Malaysia, stating: ‘This GRU operation was trying to collect information about the MH17 investigation.

‘And targeted Malaysian government institutions, including the attorney general’s office and the Royal Malaysian Police.’

A researcher has revealed that the rudimentary technique they used to hack into the OPCW is common – though it has never been used in such a high-profile case.

Professor Alan Woodward, a computer scientist at the University of Surrey, said the Russians likely used an ordinary laptop attached to a directional antenna, which was pointed at the OPCW building.

He said unlike more common remote hacking techniques, the GRU agents needed to park close to the site in order for the WiFi signal to be strong enough.

However, before they could initiate the attack, Dutch counter-intelligence officers descended on the vehicle and seized the men, who were kicked out of the country.

The Dutch Defence Ministry took the extraordinary step this morning of naming and picturing four Russian agents caught as they tried to carry out the cyber attack.

Looking at the equipment in the boot of the car it appears they were attempting to intercept login credentials as people tried to connect to the WiFi network at OPCW, Professor Woodward said.

‘A classic way of doing this is to set yourself up as what is known as an ‘evil access point’, he told MailOnline. ‘You pretend to be the network they are attempting to connect to and steal their login details as their computer or phone tries to connect.’

The cyber security expert said it was unusual for high level intelligence officials to use such a rudimentary form of attack. ‘[The technique] has been around as long as WiFi has,’ he told MailOnline.

‘Attacks have evolved as security in WiFi has evolved. But it’s so basic that most enterprise style organisations are well protected. Hence the high profile cases tend to be from some more remote source.’

Even if the security analysts were already attached to a WiFi, the attackers would have been able to launch a ‘deauthentication attack’.

This automatically disconnects them so their device tries to reconnect. The directional antenna were pointing specifically at the OPCW offices which means the fake network – the ‘evil access point’ – would have had a stronger signal than the real signal.

This would have lured the devices away from the real network. ‘Once you have someone’s login credentials you can obviously access the WiFi as an attacker if you are in range, which this vehicle apparently was’, Professor Woodward said.
