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: ““, 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.
“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.
