“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.

“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.

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.

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:

New Abwehr – | – Skripal – Yanukovych – (possibly Putin) – Oligarchs – Manafort – Trump.

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
 

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

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.

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
 

mikenova shared this story .

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.

GRU finds person guilty of special services’ failure in Netherlands
 

mikenova shared this story .

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.

M.N.:

My respectful recommendation to Gen. Gerasimov and Gen. Korobov is to try to reach out to their colleagues and to discuss these issues frankly and openly, in their broad range and in all the possible depth. The similar respectful recommendation to their colleagues, Gen. Dunford and Gen. Ashley, is to have these discussions and to try to make them productive. GRU is often compared with CIA, although nominally its counterpart is DIA. These interventions have to be approved on the highest levels, of course. 

This “ham-handedness”, the deliberate, demonstrative sloppiness, as if it were the invitation to be discovered, is the pervasive, constantly present, the distinguishing, the defining, the hallmark feature of ALL recent operations, including, very much so, the Operation Trump. This feature has to be addressed and investigated thoroughly, it might contain one of the main clues. It might indicate the possible set-up or the number of other explanations, which have to be explored.

Donald Trump may be drawn into double agent Sergei Skripal’s ‘poisoning’

mikenova shared this story .

Security analysts say police are ­investigating links between critically ill Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and Christopher Steele, the British former spy who compiled an explosive dossier on US President Don­ald Trump.

The diplomatic relationship between Britain and Russia has nose­dived over the suspected daylight poisoning of Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, southern England, on Monday (AEDT).

But Mr Trump could be drawn into the chilling episode if Mr Skripal is linked to Mr Steele’s 2015 dossier, which detailed alleged collusion between Mr Trump and Russia.

    Frank Lloyd Wright was asked to build a house opposite a waterfall, but that would have been too straightforward.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned that England could even pull out of the soccer World Cup to be hosted by Russia in June if it is confirmed that the Skripals were poisoned by Kremlin-backed associates.

Counter-terrorism police took command of the investigation yesterday amid fears the victims — who were fighting for their lives in hospital — may have been poisoned by a nerve agent. Tests have been conducted for substances including sarin gas and VZ, the chemical nerve agent used to kill Kim Jong-nam, the brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, at Kuala Lumpur airport.

Police are looking at the security footage to identify a blonde woman with a red bag, who was initially thought to be Yulia Skripal.

Anthony Glees, director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, told The Telegraph: “What we know is that Steele was our man in Russia, that he was extremely good. We know that what MI6 does is gain intelligence from human agents. You put all these things together, it is clear that ­either directly or indirectly Sergei Skripal would have been known to Christopher Steele.’’

Mr Steele was in Moscow in the early 1990s when Mr Skripal was passing information to MI6.

He was the chief of the Russia desk in 2006 when he headed the investigation into the fatal poisoning of Russian informer Alexander Litvinenko in a Mayfair hotel. A British inquiry found his killing was probably sanctioned by the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr Steele left the agency just before the 2010 spy swap resulted in Mr Skripal and three others being taken to Britain in return for 10 US-based Russian spies.

“If it is the case that Christopher Steele produced a dossier on Trump that is authentic and ­accurate, as we believe it to be — its accuracy has not been seriously undermined — then anybody who feels that Trump was humiliated and dissed by an MI6 officer may feel that getting at one of his agents is justified,” Professor Glees said. “That could be the Russian security services.”

Mr Skripal, a former army intelligence colonel, had feared for his life since his wife and son had died within five years, due to cancer and liver issues, reports said. His daughter has criticised Mr Putin on social media.

Mr Johnson told parliament that if the Putin regime were behind the poisoning “we will have to have a serious conversation about our relationship with Russia” .

“It will be difficult to see how UK representation at the World Cup can go ahead in the normal way,” he said. “I say to governments around the world that no ­attempt to take innocent life on UK soil will go either unsanctioned or unpunished.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokes­woman Maria Zakharova described the comments as words of “savagery”. The Russian embassy in London said the Foreign Secretary spoke as if the investigation was already over and Russia was found responsible. “Looks like the script of yet another anti-Russian campaign has been already written,” the statement said.

Агента, который сдал американцам Анну Чапман и других нелегалов, два года назад объявили мертвым. На самом деле он живет в США: Buzzfeed — Meduza

mikenova shared this story from Meduza.io.

Александр Потеев родился в 1952 году в Белоруссии в семье Героя Советского Союза Николая Потеева, получившего это звание во время Великой Отечественной войны. Потеев-младший окончил Высшие курсы КГБ в Минске, после чего был переведен в Москву. В 1980-х он служил в Афганистане и работал в управлении внешней разведки КГБ СССР. В 1990-х несколько лет провел за границей (в том числе в США) под видом сотрудника российского МИД. В 2000 году Александр Потеев был назначен заместителем начальника одного из отделов управления «С» Службы внешней разведки (СВР); его подразделение курировало деятельность российских агентов-нелегалов в США.

В 2010 году там арестовали десять российских шпионов (наибольшую известность среди них приобрела Анна Чапман). Американские власти обвинили их в сборе разведданных в пользу России и обменяли на четырех осужденных за шпионаж граждан России, среди которых был бывший сотрудник ГРУ . Российские СМИ писали, что Чапман и остальных сдал Александр Потеев — он незадолго до их ареста уехал в отпуск в Белоруссию, а оттуда через Украину и Германию сбежал в США. В 2011 году Потеева заочно признали виновным в измене и дезертирстве, приговорили к 25 годам тюремного заключения, лишили всех званий и наград. Суд над ним прошел в закрытом режиме.

В 2016-м «Интерфакс» со ссылкой на источники сообщил, что Потеев умер в США. Агентство не уточнило подробности его смерти, предположив, что новость о ней может быть «дезинформацией, направленной на то, чтобы о предателе просто забыли». Официально смерть Потеева тогда никто не подтвердил. Журналист Би-би-си Марк Урбан заявил в своей книге «Файлы Скрипаля», что на самом деле Потеев жив, а информацию о его смерти распространила российская разведка, надеясь, что перебежчик свяжется с , чтобы опровергнуть ее. Также Би-би-си утверждает, что в 2014 году российские спецслужбы пытались убить Потеева.

Теперь доказательства того, что Потеев не умер, нашли журналисты Buzzfeed. Они утверждают, что обнаружили их еще в прошлом году, но решили не распространять по просьбе ЦРУ; там опасались, что опровержение смерти Потеева поставит под угрозу его безопасность. Но после того, как российского офицера назвали живым на Би-би-си, Buzzfeed тоже опубликовал свои данные.

Журналисты издания утверждают, что нашли имя Александра Потеева в публичных базах данных. В США живет только один человек с таким именем и фамилией; его дата рождения совпала с предполагаемой датой рождения двойного агента, а второе имя, Nick, перекликалось с его отчеством — Николаевич. Имя Потеева появилось в базах данных в октябре 2010 года, то есть через три месяца после «шпионского скандала». В течение следующих шести лет он мог жить в штатах Массачусетс, Аризона и Вирджиния. Начиная с 2016 года информации о Потееве стало значительно больше. В частности, журналисты Buzzfeed узнали, что в январе 2016-го Потеев получил штраф за превышение скорости, в октябре — лицензию на ловлю рыбы, а в ноябре проголосовал (на каких выборах, издание не уточняет).

Когда Buzzfeed собирал информацию про Потеева, тот, согласно открытой информации, жил уже во Флориде. Чтобы проверить, является ли человек, чьи данные они обнаружили, бывшим полковником СВР, журналисты попытались встретиться с ним. В первый раз консьерж, работающий в доме Потеева, отказался пропустить их, заявив, что «Алекс» всегда сам встречает гостей в холле. Во второй раз другой консьерж разрешил репортерам подняться в квартиру Потеева. Дверь им открыла пожилая женщина. На вопрос, можно ли поговорить с Александром Потеевым, она спросила, кто хочет его видеть; узнав, что это журналисты, женщина закрыла дверь со словами: «Нет, нет, нет». Во время последней попытки консьерж позвонил в квартиру Потеева, после чего передал, что «Алекс» не хочет разговаривать с Buzzfeed.

Banksy painting shreds itself moments after being sold for $1.4 million at London auction

LONDON — Art collectors were left stunned on Friday evening when a Banksy painting appeared to self-destruct just moments after it was sold at an auction, in a prank apparently orchestrated by the elusive street artist.

The spray-painted canvas “Girl With Balloon” slid through a shredder embedded in the frame, emerging out the bottom in strips as the final hammer signaled an end to the evening, according to international auction house Sotheby’s. It had sold for $1.4 million, matching a record for the artist first set in 2008.

Banksy posted an image of the scene from the auction house on his Instagram account with the caption “Going, going, gone…”

The photo appears to have been first tweeted by an attendee at the auction who said an alarm sounded just as the frame began to shred the canvas.

Banksy, who has never disclosed his full identity, began his career spray-painting buildings in Bristol, England and has become one of the world’s best-known artists.

Known for his controversial work, from criticizing anti-migrant attitudes to the Israel-Palestine conflict, he also has a penchant for elaborate pranks.

“It appears we just got Banksy-ed,” said Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s senior director and head of contemporary art.

“He is arguably the greatest British street artist, and tonight we saw a little piece of Banksy genius,” he said immediately after the incident, according to The Art Newspaper. He added he was “not in on the ruse.”

“Girl With Balloon,” which depicts a small child reaching up toward a heart-shaped red balloon, was originally stenciled on a wall in east London and has been endlessly reproduced, becoming one of Banksy’s best-known images.

It’s unclear what will happen to the famous painting now that it’s been turned to thin strips.

Sotheby’s said it was the first time in auction history that such a thing had happened.

“We have not experienced this situation in the past where a painting spontaneously shredded, upon achieving a record for the artist,” Branczik said. “We are busily figuring out what this means in an auction context.”

The auction house said it was “in discussion about next steps” with the buyer. Some art-market watchers have suggested the work could be worth even more in its shredded state.

Another Banksy painting, Happy Choppers, sold at a Sotheby’s auction in New York on the same day. The unscathed work of art fetched $735,000.

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

mikenova shared this story from FBI News Review.

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

Where is the truth? 

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

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

Say this:  

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

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

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

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

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

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

mikenova shared this story .

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

Gusenbauer, Prodi and Kwasniewski

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

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

Eklatanter Interessenkonflikt

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

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

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

Oppositionsführerin Timoschenko angeschwärzt

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

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

Der rätselhafte vierte Mann ist ein Türke

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

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

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

Where is the truth? 

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

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

Say this:  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You just cannot make this stuff up.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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