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.

  • Stephen CorbyFrank 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.

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

Илья Красильщик

разведчик, поехавший на дело в другую страну с квитком на такси, где указан маршрут гру—аэропорт шереметьево, не выходит из головы. надо написать кому-нибудь серию детективов про русского разведчика-идиота. сюжет должен быть блуждающим, развязка неожиданной, необъяснимой и максимально бессмысленной

Всепоглощающая коррупция, которую Путин насадил в России, наконец ударила по нему бумерангом: продажные сотрудники ГИБДД, торгующие базами данных, сдали всю активную сеть международных операций ГРУ, которую готовили много лет

Андрей Мальгин

А помните, когда начиналась эта тема “русских хакеров”, Путин с довольной улыбочкой говорил: Государство у нас такими вещами не занимается, но мы не можем уследить за отдельными патриотически настроенными гражданами?

Думал, государство не попадется. А оно опять попалось.

Почему не могли не засыпаться госхакеры? Потому что руководство России поверило в то, что может на равных конкурировать в высокотехнологичных областях с передовыми странами. Всё та же попытка прыгнуть выше головы. “Наши партнеры”, увы, временно расслабились, но отныне любые попытки гадить в цифровом пространстве будут пресекаться. Просто в силу непреодолимого технологического отставания России.

И еще немаловажная деталь. Всё то, что удавалось раздобыть хакерам из ГРУ, кто немедленно выкладывал для публичного ознакомления? Правильно: товарищ Джулиан Ассанж. Важнейшее звено в кремлевской цепочке провокаций.

Рыклин Александр

А по-моему, это хорошо, что у нас не разведка, а сборище ушлепков, котрые палятся по три раза в день…

Илья Вайцман

ВСЕ российские спецслужбы нужно вычищать под корень, по причине полнейшей деградации. Безотносительно к политике. С улицы прохожих набрать – будет лучше. Со всех т.з.

Продолжаются и рассуждения по поводу того, кто “сливает” журналистам информацию, которую можно без труда найти в открытых источниках.

Эль Мюрид

Откровенно говоря, массовость проколов, которые сопровождают деятельность военной разведки России, начинает вызывать вопросы. Сомнений в том, что ее уровень сегодня находится крайне низко, нет – деградация страны неизбежно ведет к распаду всех ее составных частей, и спецслужб это касается не в меньшей степени. Но такие массовые провалы без чьей-то дружеской помощи и поддержки, скорее всего, невозможны.

Роман Попков

«Грушников ловят и чморят с таким размахом и с таким фантастическим успехом, будто их ловит и чморит соседняя организация» – пишет Сергей Леонидович Доренко, намекая, как я понимаю, на гебушку. Как будто это эфесбешники регистрировали доблестных военных разведчиков по Хорошевским шоссе и улицам Народного ополчения, выписывали им паспорта с одинаковыми номерами, и прочую оперативную содомию творили. А потом подсовывали Сергею Каневу и Роме Доброхотову диски с базами ментовских даных.

Но на самом деле, ФСБ во всем этом позоре с ГРУ тоже должно нести ответственность. Я напомню, что именно ФСБ отвечает за контрразведывательное обеспечение всех Вооруженных сил, в том числе ГРУ. И вся эта содомия с паспортами, регистрациями, шпилями и геями – это крах и ФСБ тоже.

Валерий Соловей

Вчера рассказывал студентам, что лучше всего объясняет политику «бритва Хэнлона»: не приписывайте злому умыслу то, для объяснения чего достаточно человеческой глупости. Я ещё добавляю к этому – и жадности.

Послушал сегодня очередные «шпионские новости». Глупость и жадность.

Полученных данных между тем вполне достаточно для того, чтобы сделать выводы об интересах российских властей.

Максим Трудолюбов

Общее во всех шпионских эпизодах – попытки исправить прошлые провалы или ответить на обвинения. Список целей: WADA, легкоатлетическая федерация, спортивный арбитраж, [малайзийский] центр расследований по сбитому “Боингу”, Организация по запрещению химоружия. Российские спецслужбы были брошены исправлять положение, латать дыры и мстить за неудачи российского политического руководства – со сбитым самолетом, с организованным применением допинга в спорте, с химической атакой в другой стране.
Кремль вовсе не равнодушен к обвинениям в допинге и применении химоружия и он над ними не смеется, как МИД говорит на брифингах. Отвечать на эти обвинения Кремль отправляет своих агентов, при том что не очень ясно, как они могут повлиять на решения спортивных федераций или ОЗХО.
Китайские спецслужбы не вылезают из американских корпораций и университетов – по крайней мере, это следует из новостей. А список приоритетов российской политики вот: WADA, легкоатлетическая федерация, спортивный арбитраж, [малайзийский] центр расследований по сбитому “Боингу”, Организация по запрещению химоружия

Леонид Волков

Как, наверное, и многие, я держу в ленте какое-то количество идейных путинистов из числа лично знакомых мне и неглупых людей. Мало ли почему человек полюбил и не может разлюбить власть: работа в каких-то госструктурах — или просто такой метод психологической самозащиты от реальности; ложно понимаемый патриотизм — или иррациональный страх перед «революцией». Всякое бывает.

Как-то они для себя все справились и с Боингом MH-17 (некоторые — перебирая, вслед за российскими властями, одну нелепую версию за другой; некоторые — приняв позицию, что «дело слишком мутное, правда в том, что мы никогда не узнаем правды» — что, конечно, и было целью коллективного Киселева-Лаврова, городивших десятки версий, лишь бы сбить кого-то с толку), как-то в основном справились и со Скрипалями, не сдавая своих позиций. Человек умеет рационализировать неприятное, подгоняя его под свою картину мира и не давая ей разрушиться, это важный механизм самозащиты.

А вот с ГРУшниками не справился никто. Никто не поверил в интервью «Петрова» и «Боширова», никто не поверил Путину, и все понимают, какой провал — вот эти все базы с Хорошевского шоссе, идущие подряд номера паспортов и квитанции такси. Что дело тут не в «шпиономании Запада» — а в самом большом провале, видимо, за всю историю спецслужб во всем мире. И мои провластные френды (еще раз повторю: речь не про ботов и не про пропагандистов на зарплате, а про живых людей, в основном из сферы IT, которым в какой-то момент стало удобнее жить с идеей «Путин в целом все делает правильно, а перегибы на местах — ну а где их не бывает) вздыхают угрюмо: «ну как же так, как же не стыдно так облажаться».

И вот я с нетерпением жду следующего шага, когда им надо будет сложить 2+2. Потому что ведь ГРУшники не просто так провалились. Они провалились, пытаясь вмешаться в расследование по Боингу и в расследование по Скрипалям.

Это же все равно, что явка с повинной.

Так что будет очень интересно наблюдать за этой частью ленты.

Даже если считать, что спецслужбы “просто делали свою работу”, сложно не прийти к выводу, что эту работу им кто-то поручил, – и еще сложнее понять, почему она оказалась именно такой.

Владимир Фролов (платный раздел Republic)

То, что было показано, – не более чем рабочие издержки чрезвычайно рискованных, но эффективных операций, достигших основных целей (дискредитация WADA, постановка под сомнение экспертизы ОЗХО по «Новичку» через предание огласке «выгодно интерпретированного» отчета химической лаборатории в швейцарском Шпице (куда перехваченные голландцами «хакеры» не доехали, но, видимо, доехали «другие», ибо этот доклад опубличил 16 апреля не кто иной, как глава МИД РФ Сергей Лавров, а швейцарцам пришлось потом эту информацию опровергать).

Если вынести за скобки моральную сторону вопроса, то можно признать, что ГРУ во всех этих эпизодах действовало дерзко, хотя и несколько прямолинейно, и, судя по всему, выполняло поставленные боевые задачи. Анализ вероятных дипломатических последствий этих действий не входит в компетенцию разведки, это прерогатива высоких инстанций. Российские спецслужбы не действуют по своей инициативе (в таких серьезных вопросах), это популярный миф. Они выполняют приказы. <…>

Основные вопросы во всей этой истории должны быть не к ГРУ, а к тем, кто ставил задачи. Так ли уж нужно задействовать спецслужбы, чтобы сначала подменять мочу в пробирках WADA, а потом взламывать базы данных этой малозначительной конторы, чтобы показать миру, какие таблетки пьет Серена Уильямс? Так ли уж нужно было проводить операции влияния («активные мероприятия» по-старому) на основе документов, полученных средствами кибершпионажа? Может быть, сначала стоит подумать о внешнеполитических последствиях и поручить конкурирующему разведведомству и МИДу их просчитать? И где-то все же надо останавливаться. Постоянно жить внутри сплошного «активного мероприятия» страна не может. Это вредно для психики.

Некоторое недоумение вызывает нынешняя истерика с кибератаками разведслужб России.
Во-первых, во всех странах существуют разведки, задача которых исследование и кража информации. Есть ли наивные люди, которые предполагают, что британская, американская или нидерландская разведки не занимаются этим в России?
Во-вторых, если бы шпионы/разведчики («их» шпионы и «наши» разведчики) этим бы не занимались, их надо было бы выгнать без выходного пособия – за что им зарплаты платить из наших налогов?
В-третьих, кибератаки – это лишь инструмент для добывания информации. Раньше копировали почту дипкурьеров, переснимали на минифотопленку секретные документы, теперь это делают с помощью «дронов» — на удаленном расстоянии – ну и какая разница?
В-четвертых, ни для кого ни секрет, что часть шпионов/разведчиков всегда работала под дипломатическим прикрытием – ну поймали, ну выдворили.
Но вот в чем принципиальная разница – одно дело красть, другое дело – уничтожать данные, менять что-то или покушаться на жизнь. Это уже не разведка в классическом виде – это диверсия.
Допускаю, что именно диверсия – попытка уничтожить Скрипаля, вмешательство в выборы с целью изменения результата, вмешательство в деятельность химической лаборатории и было основанием для этой жесткой публичной позиции стран НАТО.
Все-таки ДИВЕРСИЯ и РАЗВЕДКА – это разные опции.
Тогда понятно

На вопрос об успешности или неуспешности стоило бы взглянуть иначе: у нас нет никаких оснований считать, что таким образом начали действовать только последние два года. Гораздо вероятнее обратное: что с такими паспортами и такими легендами ездили все последние 15 лет, и успешно хакали и убивали что и кого им было нужно. Крайне странных смертей русских или околорусских в Лондоне было выше крыши. И ничего им за это не было – не связывались, не расследовали. Иными словами, скорее всего весь тот стиль работы, который сейчас нам кажется комическим, он вплоть до прошлого года был вполне успешным, в рамках нормы, другого и не требовалось.

Вслед за разоблачениями США, Нидерланды и Канада официально обвинили российскую военную разведку в проведении кибератак по всему миру, и многие обеспокоены возможными последствиями этих заявлений.

Мне кажется, сегодня впервые на уровне министра страны Россию назвали pariah state.
Сегодняшние события мне видятся серьезнее, чем кажется на первый взгляд.

Так получается, что ГРУ становится еще одним брендом России в мире, наряду со спутником, Гагариным и Большим театром. Но если старые бренды олицетворяли позитив – научно-технический или творческий, то новый несет с собой неопределенную опасность и разрушение. Москва может сколько угодно твердить о шпиономании, русофобии и паранойе, но предъявленные миру фотографии и паспорта грушников, московский чек на такси от здания ГРУ до Шереметьева и хакерское оборудование в багажнике арендованного «Ситроена» невозможно списать на больное воображение. России придется с этим жить и готовиться к новым санкциям.
Правда, вице-президент США Пенс тут же обвинил и Китай во вмешательстве в американские демократические процедуры, по сравнению с которым действия России «бледнеют». Остается надеяться, что внимание Штатов будет всё больше переноситься на китайских товарищей. Но с Европой Москве надо все-таки поаккуратнее и попрофессиональнее. Как говорил Жванецкий, тщательнее надо, ребята.

Реакция российских государственных телеканалов и официальных лиц сюрпризом ни для кого не стала.

Артем Рондарев

Мне кажется, российским информационным порталам можно уже делать макрос «В МИД России назвали заявления <британских, американских, голландских, подставить нужное> <дипломатов, полицейских, членов верховного суда, подставить нужное> «фантазиями».

Чтобы он автоматом клеился после каждого информационного сообщения, а редактор только пару слов вставлял сообразно моменту.

Потому что, судя по всему, скоро каждая новость, даже о погоде, будет требовать этой фразы, так что лучше заранее, чтобы не напрягаться.

Ну и фоток удивленной Марии Захаровой нарезать на год вперед не помешает ггг.

Auburn – Color Words For Autumn Foliage | Merriam-Webster

The trees were blazing with autumn; red and gold and auburn leaves littered the ground like a many-hued carpet that crackled and rustled as they hiked along.
— Ben Bova, Return to Mars, 1999

Prior to the 16th century, auburn would not have been an ideal word to describe an autumn color. It derives ultimately from the Latin word albus, meaning “white,” and originally designated a yellowish or brownish white color.

However, by the 16th century, the word’s meaning shifted to goldish and reddish shades of brown. It seems variant spellings of the word, such as abruneabroun, and abrown, that resembled Middle English brun, meaning “brown,” brought on the color change.

Поздравление с Днём учителя

Владимир Путин поздравил всех российских учителей с Днём учителя.

09:40

В поздравлении, в частности, говорится:

«Нелёгкий, но благородный и востребованный труд учителя и наставника во все времена пользовался в нашей стране особым почётом. Именно от вас, вашей мудрости, терпения, самоотдачи во многом зависит личностное и профессиональное становление подрастающего поколения, активная общественная и жизненная позиция юных граждан.

Государство и впредь будет делать всё для повышения статуса учителя, укрепления социальных гарантий тех, кто трудится в сфере образования – ключевой для будущего России».

The coordinated witch-hunts do not solve the problems, the coordinated communications do. The pervasive, constantly present, the distinguishing, the defining, the hallmark feature of the recent operations is this “ham-handedness”. – M.N. – 6:08 AM 10/6/2018 | Global Security News

The coordinated witch-hunts do not solve the problems, the coordinated communications do. The pervasive, constantly present, the distinguishing, the defining, the hallmark feature of the recent operations is this “ham-handedness”. – M.N. – 6:08 AM 10/6/2018

“The ham-handed attempted break-in — involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues — was the most stunning operation revealed Thursday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught…

What Dutch authorities found seemed to be the work of an amateur. A taxi receipt in the pocket of one of the agents showed he had hired a cab to take him from a street next to GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. A laptop found with the team appeared to tie them to other alleged GRU hacks.” 

M.N.: 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. 

The “Russianness”, the Russian ethnic origins and the history of the service in the military or the GRU of the implied, suspected operators does not mean at all that they work for the GRU presently, or that their acts were authorised, approved, or specifically planned by the GRU. Importantly, they might have been selected by the third party (which I call the New Abwehr, under its leader, the Demiurge), and specifically for these traits: “Russianness” and the history of the GRU service. These suspects might be the completely unwitting semi-professional actors acting as the cover for the true designers. GRU is the very sophisticated and experienced, highly professional intelligence service, just like her counterparts, and they have their own professional ways of doing things without being ostentatious, also just like the others. 

However, everything is possible, and the version of the “face value”, “what you see is what you get” is legitimate and has to be investigated first of all, despite the lack of the credibility factor. 

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. 

By the way, I think that the non-travel sanctions specifically against Korobov and the others in this circle, who are not involved in commercial activities, are counterproductive and should be waved or cancelled. People need to travel, to meet, and to talk; and the present crisis is the result of the insufficient communications, not their abundance. 

Technically, it is also easier to keep track of them when they travel freely rather than clandestinely, which they do anyway. 

The coordinated witch-hunts do not solve the problems, the coordinated communications do. 

“Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said in a statement that the U.S. is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it.” 

Mr. Ryabkov, stop your nuclear dingle-dangle. You sound more like a fire-setter than a firefighter or diplomat. Do not threaten the others yourself, you sound excessively defensive. Try to comprehend, to truly understand the situation, and to find the ways of resolving it on the basis of this understanding. 

The delusional-grandiose attempts on Mr. Skripal’s part to influence the personnel policies of the GRU; as his revenge (if they exist), should also be considered as a factor, although, obviously, it will be left without any consequences. 

Mr. Skripal himself appears to be the highly intriguing, mysterious, complex person who might also contain many hidden clues.

West Accuses Russian Spy Agency of Scores of Attacks
mikenova shared this story .

LONDON — The West unleashed an onslaught of new evidence and indictments Thursday accusing Russian military spies of hacking so widespread that it seemed to target anyone, anywhere who investigates Moscow’s involvement in an array of criminal activities — including doping, poisoning and the downing of a plane.

Russia defiantly denied the charges, neither humbled nor embarrassed by the exceptional revelations on one of the most high-tension days in East-West relations in years. Moscow lashed back with allegations that the Pentagon runs a clandestine U.S. biological weapons program involving toxic mosquitoes, ticks and more.

The nucleus of Thursday’s drama was Russia’s military intelligence agency known as the GRU, increasingly the embodiment of Russian meddling abroad.

In the last 24 hours: U.S. authorities charged seven officers from the GRU with hacking international agencies; British and Australian authorities accused the GRU of a devastating 2017 cyberattack on Ukraine, the email leaks that rocked the U.S. 2016 election and other damaging hacks; And Dutch officials alleged that GRU agents tried and failed to hack into the world’s chemical weapons watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The ham-handed attempted break-in — involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues — was the most stunning operation revealed Thursday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught.

“Basically, the Russians got caught with their equipment, people who were doing it, and they have got to pay the piper. They are going to have to be held to account,” U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said in Brussels, where he was meeting with NATO allies.

Mattis said the West has “a wide variety of responses” available.

Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, said the GRU would no longer be allowed to act with impunity.

Calling Russia a “pariah state,” British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, where they have done in terms of these cyberattacks, we will be exposing them.”

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said in a statement that the U.S. is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it.

While the accusations expose how much damage Russia can do in foreign lands, through remote hacking and on-site infiltration — they also expose how little Western countries can do to stop it.

Russia is already under EU and U.S. sanctions, and dozens of GRU agents and alleged Russian trolls have already been indicted by the U.S but will likely never be handed over to face American justice.

Still, to the Western public, Thursday may have been a pivotal day, with accusations so extensive, and the chorus of condemnation so loud, that it left little doubt of massive Russian wrongdoing. A wealth of surveillance footage released by Western intelligence agencies was quickly and overwhelmingly confirmed by independent reporting.

The litany of accusations of GRU malfeasance began overnight, when British and Australian authorities accused the Russian agency of being behind the catastrophic 2017 cyberattack in Ukraine. The malicious software outbreak knocked out ATMs, gas stations, pharmacies and hospitals and, according to a secret White House assessment recently cited by Wired, caused $10 billion in damage worldwide.

The British and Australians also linked the GRU to other hacks, including the Democratic Party email leaks and online cyber propaganda that sowed havoc before Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election.

Later Thursday, Dutch defense officials released photos and a timeline of GRU agents’ botched attempt to break into the chemical weapons watchdog using Wi-Fi hacking equipment hidden in a car parked outside a nearby Marriott Hotel. The OPCW was investigating a nerve agent attack on a former GRU spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter in Salisbury, England, that Britain has blamed on the Russian government. Moscow vehemently denies involvement.

Photographs released by the Dutch Ministry of Defense showed a trunk loaded with a computer, battery, a bulky white transformer and a hidden antenna; officials said the equipment was operational when Dutch counterintelligence interrupted the operation.

What Dutch authorities found seemed to be the work of an amateur. A taxi receipt in the pocket of one of the agents showed he had hired a cab to take him from a street next to GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. A laptop found with the team appeared to tie them to other alleged GRU hacks.

The men were expelled instead of arrested, because they were traveling on diplomatic passports.

The Dutch also accused the GRU of trying to hack investigators examining the 2014 downing of a Malaysian Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine that killed all 298 people on board. A Dutch-led team says it has strong evidence the missile that brought the plane down came from a Russia-based military unit. Russia has denied the charge.

Later Thursday, the U.S. Justice Department charged seven GRU officers — including the four caught in The Hague — in an international hacking rampage that targeted more than 250 athletes, a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company, a Swiss chemical laboratory and the OPCW.

The indictment said the GRU targets had publicly supported a ban on Russian athletes in international sports competitions and because they had condemned what they called a state-sponsored doping program by Russia.

U.S. prosecutors said the Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company and the OPCW.

The seven were identified as: Aleksei Morenets, 41; Evgenii Serebriakov, 37; Ivan Yermakov, 32; Artem Malyshev, 30; and Dmitriy Badin, 27; who were each assigned to Military Unit 26165, and Oleg Sotnikov, 46, and Alexey Minin, 46, who were also GRU officers.

The U.S. indictment says the hacking was often conducted remotely. If that wasn’t successful, the hackers would conduct “on-site” or “close access” hacking operations, with trained GRU members traveling with sophisticated equipment to target their victims through Wi-Fi networks.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the Canadian anti-doping agency were all identified by the U.S. indictment against the Russians.

WADA said the alleged hackers “sought to violate athletes’ rights by exposing personal and private data — often then modifying them — and ultimately undermine the work of WADA and its partners in the protection of clean sport.”

Travis Tygart, the CEO of the U.S. anti-doping agency and a prominent critic of Russian athletes’ drug use, says “a system that was abusing its own athletes with an institutionalized doping program has now been indicted for perpetrating cyberattacks on innocent athletes from around the world.”

Russia denied everything.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said the accusations were fake and intended to “delegitimize” a resurgent Russia. The West has picked up the GRU as “a modern analogue of the KGB which served as a bugaboo for people in the West during the Cold War,” he said.

Russia countered with accusations of their own: The Defense Ministry unveiled complex allegations that the U.S. has a clandestine biological weapons lab in the country of Georgia as part of a network of labs on the edges of Russia and China that flout international rules.

Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon called the accusations “an invention” and “obvious attempts to divert attention from Russia’s bad behavior on many fronts.”

The Associated Press, meanwhile, independently corroborated information that matches details for two of the alleged Russian agents named by the Dutch authorities.

An online car registration database in Russia showed that Aleksei Morenets, whose full name and date of birth are the same as one of the expelled Russians, sold his car in 2004, listing the Moscow address where the Defense Ministry’s Military University is based.

Alexey Minin, another Russian whose full name and date of birth match the Dutch details, had several cars, including an Alfa Romeo, that were registered and sold at the address where the Defense Ministry’s GRU school is located. In some of the filings, Minin listed the official military unit number of the GRU school as his home address.

Zis absolutely does not mean anything, from the criminology point of view.  This case has not been investigated properly, thoroughly, and completely, yet. Therefore let  us hold our judgments for now. Investigate it on the highest levels professionally, as the good criminal detectives, and as the diplomats. The truth will heal, the lies will complicate the problem.

Russian spies are outed, but will heads roll in Moscow?
 

It looked like a spy agency’s worst nightmare: The unmasking of several agents, and the disclosure of sloppy tradecraft in what appeared to be a bungled intelligence operation.

But heads have yet to roll — at least not publicly — at the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency.

On Thursday, Western governments mounted a coordinated effort to unmask what they claimed were “brazen” efforts by GRU agents to sow chaos on foreign soil.

In a briefing Thursday, the Dutch government said it had foiled a “close-access hack operation” by the GRU aimed at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the world’s chemical-weapons watchdog. The Dutch claimed that the four alleged agents planned to travel next to an OPCW-accredited laboratory in Switzerland, but did not get there because their operation was intercepted.

That same day, Britain accused the GRU of carrying out a worldwide campaign of “malicious” cyberattacks, and the US Justice Department announced criminal charges against seven GRU officers, accusing them of involvement in an effort to deflect attention from Russia’s state-sponsored sports doping program.

The coordinated information dump revealed what appeared to be an embarrassing security breach for the GRU. Details in the Dutch briefing were particularly tantalizing: The head of Dutch counterintelligence named four alleged Russian GRU officers, noting that two of them had consecutive passport numbers, a potential red flag for intelligence agencies.

And then there was the taxi receipt: When detained, one of the alleged agents had a receipt for a trip to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport from Nesvizkhskiy Pereulok, a road bordering what Dutch counterintelligence said was a GRU facility.

The owner of the cab company confirmed to CNN that the receipt was authentic, but added that the driver couldn’t recall whether any of the men named were indeed the passengers. Such details provided fodder for online sleuths, and raised questions among some observers about the GRU’s level of professionalism.

Digital footprints

Unlike Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, the two Russians named by the UK as the suspects in the nerve agent attack earlier this year in Salisbury, England, the four men named by the Dutch on Thursday left more digital traces.

The Moscow Times even reported that Yevgeny Serebryakov, one of the Russian men accused of the attempted OPCW hack, appeared to be a participant in a Moscow amateur soccer league.

So how big a scandal is this in Russia, and how will it play? The case of Petrov and Boshirov proves instructive.

In early September, British authorities released the names of the two men, saying they were GRU agents traveling under aliases. Following the release of those names, Russian President Vladimir Putin described the two men as “civilians,” and encouraged them to come forward.

The following day, Russia’s state-owned RT aired an interview with the two men, who admitted traveling to Salisbury but denied working for the GRU. That prompted insinuations and jokes on Russian media about the sexual orientation of “Boshirov” and “Petrov” as well as their fondness for Gothic spires.

The RT interview was a weapon of mass distraction, turning the Salisbury poisoning into fodder for memes. But the information war continued: After the RT interview aired, the UK investigative website Bellingcat claimed to have identified “Boshirov” as a GRU colonel.

In the coming days, no doubt, we’ll learn more about the identities of the supposed GRU agents. But the Russian response has been to double down on accusations of “fake news.”

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova called the UK allegations a “hellish perfume mix,” saying, “The rich imagination of our UK colleagues truly knows no limits. Who comes up with this?”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov played the same note on Friday. Western governments, he said, were driven by “hysteria” and “spy phobia” after the US, the Netherlands and Britain publicly unmasked the alleged Russian intelligence agents.

To be sure, the latest round of spy wars has not been consequence-free for Russia. The US and its allies expelled dozens of Russian diplomats in the wake of the Salisbury poisoning, and the fears of Russian meddling persist: US lawmakers are considering new sanctions to punish Russia over its interference in US elections.

The German government on Friday called on Russia to desist from carrying out cyberattacks in other countries, adding its voice to those of Britain and the Netherlands.

“We sharply condemn such attacks on international organizations and institutions of our allies and call on Russia to meet its responsibility and cease such actions,” government Spokesman Steffen Seibert said in Berlin.

He said that Germany, like Britain, believed that the Russian military intelligence agency GRU was, “with almost absolute certainty,” behind the APT28 cyberespionage campaign, which attacked a number of targets worldwide, including the German Bundestag and government data network. 

If such attacks were successful, Seibert said, they could directly threaten public security and “in principle also our democracy,” making it imperative that Germany ensured it was ready and able to take action in the digital sphere.

He emphasized the importance of working together with other states to defend against such attacks.

Growing evidence

On Thursday, the Netherlands and Britain went public with accusations that Russia was trying to damage Western democracies through cyberattacks. Among other things, Dutch authorities said they had prevented an attack by Russian hackers on The Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in April.

The OPCW, the UN’s chemical weapon’s watchdog, has been involved in investigations into the attempted killing of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal using the nerve agent Novichok and into alleged chemical attacks in Douma, Syria, by the Russia-backed Syrian regime.

Germany’s accusations come as evidence mounts of a worldwide cyber campaign targeting Western institutions launched by Russia. The US Justice Department announced after Thursday’s revelations that it had charged seven Russian military intelligence offices with hacking organizations including anti-doping agencies.

Russia has been revealed to have long run a state-sponsored athlete doping program, leading to several of its sportspeople being banned from participating in international events.

Moscow has denounced the allegations as products of “fantasy.”

Germany demands that Russia halt campaign of cyberattacks
 

Germany on Friday joined other Western countries in blaming Russia for engaging in a global campaign of cyber attacks against political institutions, businesses, media outlets and sports organizations.

“We have full confidence in the assessment of the British and Dutch authorities. The (German) government is also almost certain that the Russian GRU secret service is behind the APT28 campaign,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

Advanced Persistent Threat 28 is another name used to describe the Sofacy or Fancy Bear hacking group.

Seibert said Germany believes successful attacks “could directly threaten free society, public safety and in principle our democracy” — and urged Moscow “to meet its responsibilities and cease such actions.”

Russia denies any involvement in the worldwide attacks.

On Thursday, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt accused Russia’s military intelligence agency GRU of carrying out various “reckless and indiscriminate” high-profile online attacks, according to Agence France-Presse.

Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre has “high confidence” that the GRU “almost certainly” targeted the US Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 presidential election, as well as last year’s attempted hacking of the World Anti-Doping Agency in Switzerland official said.

“This pattern of behavior demonstrates (the GRU’s) desire to operate without regard to international law or established norms and to do so with a feeling of impunity and without consequences,” Hunt said.

“Our message is clear: together with our allies, we will expose and respond to the GRU’s attempts to undermine international stability.”

In addition to APT28, Britain said the GRU was associated with several other hackers, including Pawnstorm, Sednit, CyberCaliphate, Cyber Berkut and Voodoo Bear, Reuters reported.

Australia joined Britain in its accusations, with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Foreign Minister Marise Payne calling Russian online meddling “unacceptable.”

The Kremlin rejected the accusations that Russian spies were behind the cyber attacks.

“It’s some kind of a diabolical perfume cocktail (of allegations),” Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters, TASS reported.

The latest allegations came a day after seven GRU officers were charged with carrying out an international hacking campaign on agencies and organizations that were investigating the country’s athlete doping program and the poisoning of a former KGB agent in Britain.

According to an indictment filed in Pennsylvania, the suspects conducted the cyber-attacks from 2014 through May using malware, spearfishing techniques and other high-tech weapons to steal information that was then circulated online.

Three of the seven had been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors for hacking into the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election.

West Accuses Russian Spy Agency of Scores of Attacks
 

LONDON — The West unleashed an onslaught of new evidence and indictments Thursday accusing Russian military spies of hacking so widespread that it seemed to target anyone, anywhere who investigates Moscow’s involvement in an array of criminal activities — including doping, poisoning and the downing of a plane.

Russia defiantly denied the charges, neither humbled nor embarrassed by the exceptional revelations on one of the most high-tension days in East-West relations in years. Moscow lashed back with allegations that the Pentagon runs a clandestine U.S. biological weapons program involving toxic mosquitoes, ticks and more.

The nucleus of Thursday’s drama was Russia’s military intelligence agency known as the GRU, increasingly the embodiment of Russian meddling abroad.

In the last 24 hours: U.S. authorities charged seven officers from the GRU with hacking international agencies; British and Australian authorities accused the GRU of a devastating 2017 cyberattack on Ukraine, the email leaks that rocked the U.S. 2016 election and other damaging hacks; And Dutch officials alleged that GRU agents tried and failed to hack into the world’s chemical weapons watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The ham-handed attempted break-in — involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues — was the most stunning operation revealed Thursday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught.

“Basically, the Russians got caught with their equipment, people who were doing it, and they have got to pay the piper. They are going to have to be held to account,” U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said in Brussels, where he was meeting with NATO allies.

Mattis said the West has “a wide variety of responses” available.

Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, said the GRU would no longer be allowed to act with impunity.

Calling Russia a “pariah state,” British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, where they have done in terms of these cyberattacks, we will be exposing them.”

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said in a statement that the U.S. is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it.

While the accusations expose how much damage Russia can do in foreign lands, through remote hacking and on-site infiltration — they also expose how little Western countries can do to stop it.

Russia is already under EU and U.S. sanctions, and dozens of GRU agents and alleged Russian trolls have already been indicted by the U.S but will likely never be handed over to face American justice.

Still, to the Western public, Thursday may have been a pivotal day, with accusations so extensive, and the chorus of condemnation so loud, that it left little doubt of massive Russian wrongdoing. A wealth of surveillance footage released by Western intelligence agencies was quickly and overwhelmingly confirmed by independent reporting.

The litany of accusations of GRU malfeasance began overnight, when British and Australian authorities accused the Russian agency of being behind the catastrophic 2017 cyberattack in Ukraine. The malicious software outbreak knocked out ATMs, gas stations, pharmacies and hospitals and, according to a secret White House assessment recently cited by Wired, caused $10 billion in damage worldwide.

The British and Australians also linked the GRU to other hacks, including the Democratic Party email leaks and online cyber propaganda that sowed havoc before Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election.

Later Thursday, Dutch defense officials released photos and a timeline of GRU agents’ botched attempt to break into the chemical weapons watchdog using Wi-Fi hacking equipment hidden in a car parked outside a nearby Marriott Hotel. The OPCW was investigating a nerve agent attack on a former GRU spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter in Salisbury, England, that Britain has blamed on the Russian government. Moscow vehemently denies involvement.

Photographs released by the Dutch Ministry of Defense showed a trunk loaded with a computer, battery, a bulky white transformer and a hidden antenna; officials said the equipment was operational when Dutch counterintelligence interrupted the operation.

What Dutch authorities found seemed to be the work of an amateur. A taxi receipt in the pocket of one of the agents showed he had hired a cab to take him from a street next to GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. A laptop found with the team appeared to tie them to other alleged GRU hacks.

The men were expelled instead of arrested, because they were traveling on diplomatic passports.

The Dutch also accused the GRU of trying to hack investigators examining the 2014 downing of a Malaysian Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine that killed all 298 people on board. A Dutch-led team says it has strong evidence the missile that brought the plane down came from a Russia-based military unit. Russia has denied the charge.

Later Thursday, the U.S. Justice Department charged seven GRU officers — including the four caught in The Hague — in an international hacking rampage that targeted more than 250 athletes, a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company, a Swiss chemical laboratory and the OPCW.

The indictment said the GRU targets had publicly supported a ban on Russian athletes in international sports competitions and because they had condemned what they called a state-sponsored doping program by Russia.

U.S. prosecutors said the Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company and the OPCW.

The seven were identified as: Aleksei Morenets, 41; Evgenii Serebriakov, 37; Ivan Yermakov, 32; Artem Malyshev, 30; and Dmitriy Badin, 27; who were each assigned to Military Unit 26165, and Oleg Sotnikov, 46, and Alexey Minin, 46, who were also GRU officers.

The U.S. indictment says the hacking was often conducted remotely. If that wasn’t successful, the hackers would conduct “on-site” or “close access” hacking operations, with trained GRU members traveling with sophisticated equipment to target their victims through Wi-Fi networks.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the Canadian anti-doping agency were all identified by the U.S. indictment against the Russians.

WADA said the alleged hackers “sought to violate athletes’ rights by exposing personal and private data — often then modifying them — and ultimately undermine the work of WADA and its partners in the protection of clean sport.”

Travis Tygart, the CEO of the U.S. anti-doping agency and a prominent critic of Russian athletes’ drug use, says “a system that was abusing its own athletes with an institutionalized doping program has now been indicted for perpetrating cyberattacks on innocent athletes from around the world.”

Russia denied everything.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said the accusations were fake and intended to “delegitimize” a resurgent Russia. The West has picked up the GRU as “a modern analogue of the KGB which served as a bugaboo for people in the West during the Cold War,” he said.

Russia countered with accusations of their own: The Defense Ministry unveiled complex allegations that the U.S. has a clandestine biological weapons lab in the country of Georgia as part of a network of labs on the edges of Russia and China that flout international rules.

Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon called the accusations “an invention” and “obvious attempts to divert attention from Russia’s bad behavior on many fronts.”

The Associated Press, meanwhile, independently corroborated information that matches details for two of the alleged Russian agents named by the Dutch authorities.

An online car registration database in Russia showed that Aleksei Morenets, whose full name and date of birth are the same as one of the expelled Russians, sold his car in 2004, listing the Moscow address where the Defense Ministry’s Military University is based.

Alexey Minin, another Russian whose full name and date of birth match the Dutch details, had several cars, including an Alfa Romeo, that were registered and sold at the address where the Defense Ministry’s GRU school is located. In some of the filings, Minin listed the official military unit number of the GRU school as his home address.

The coordinated witch-hunts do not solve the problems, the coordinated communications do. The pervasive, constantly present, the distinguishing, the defining, the hallmark feature of the recent operations is this “ham-handedness”. – M.N. – 6:08 AM 10/6/2018

“The ham-handed attempted break-in — involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues — was the most stunning operation revealed Thursday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught…

What Dutch authorities found seemed to be the work of an amateur. A taxi receipt in the pocket of one of the agents showed he had hired a cab to take him from a street next to GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. A laptop found with the team appeared to tie them to other alleged GRU hacks.” 

M.N.: 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. 

The “Russianness”, the Russian ethnic origins and the history of the service in the military or the GRU of the implied, suspected operators does not mean at all that they work for the GRU presently, or that their acts were authorised, approved, or specifically planned by the GRU. Importantly, they might have been selected by the third party (which I call the New Abwehr, under its leader, the Demiurge), and specifically for these traits: “Russianness” and the history of the GRU service. These suspects might be the completely unwitting semi-professional actors acting as the cover for the true designers. GRU is the very sophisticated and experienced, highly professional intelligence service, just like her counterparts, and they have their own professional ways of doing things without being ostentatious, also just like the others. 

However, everything is possible, and the version of the “face value”, “what you see is what you get” is legitimate and has to be investigated first of all, despite the lack of the credibility factor. 

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. 

By the way, I think that the non-travel sanctions specifically against Korobov and the others in this circle, who are not involved in commercial activities, are counterproductive and should be waved or cancelled. People need to travel, to meet, and to talk; and the present crisis is the result of the insufficient communications, not their abundance. 

Technically, it is also easier to keep track of them when they travel freely rather than clandestinely, which they do anyway. 

The coordinated witch-hunts do not solve the problems, the coordinated communications do. 

“Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said in a statement that the U.S. is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it.” 

Mr. Ryabkov, stop your nuclear dingle-dangle. You sound more like a fire-setter than a firefighter or diplomat. Do not threaten the others yourself, you sound excessively defensive. Try to comprehend, to truly understand the situation, and to find the ways of resolving it on the basis of this understanding. 

The delusional-grandiose attempts on Mr. Skripal’s part to influence the personnel policies of the GRU; as his revenge (if they exist), should also be considered as a factor, although, obviously, it will be left without any consequences. 

Mr. Skripal himself appears to be the highly intriguing, mysterious, complex person who might also contain many hidden clues.

West Accuses Russian Spy Agency of Scores of Attacks
mikenova shared this story .

LONDON — The West unleashed an onslaught of new evidence and indictments Thursday accusing Russian military spies of hacking so widespread that it seemed to target anyone, anywhere who investigates Moscow’s involvement in an array of criminal activities — including doping, poisoning and the downing of a plane.

Russia defiantly denied the charges, neither humbled nor embarrassed by the exceptional revelations on one of the most high-tension days in East-West relations in years. Moscow lashed back with allegations that the Pentagon runs a clandestine U.S. biological weapons program involving toxic mosquitoes, ticks and more.

The nucleus of Thursday’s drama was Russia’s military intelligence agency known as the GRU, increasingly the embodiment of Russian meddling abroad.

In the last 24 hours: U.S. authorities charged seven officers from the GRU with hacking international agencies; British and Australian authorities accused the GRU of a devastating 2017 cyberattack on Ukraine, the email leaks that rocked the U.S. 2016 election and other damaging hacks; And Dutch officials alleged that GRU agents tried and failed to hack into the world’s chemical weapons watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The ham-handed attempted break-in — involving hacking equipment in the trunk of a car and a trail of physical and virtual clues — was the most stunning operation revealed Thursday. It was so obvious, in fact, that it almost looked like the Russians didn’t care about getting caught.

“Basically, the Russians got caught with their equipment, people who were doing it, and they have got to pay the piper. They are going to have to be held to account,” U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said in Brussels, where he was meeting with NATO allies.

Mattis said the West has “a wide variety of responses” available.

Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, said the GRU would no longer be allowed to act with impunity.

Calling Russia a “pariah state,” British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, where they have done in terms of these cyberattacks, we will be exposing them.”

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of Russia said in a statement that the U.S. is taking a “dangerous path” by “deliberately inciting tensions in relations between the nuclear powers,” adding that Washington’s European allies should also think about it.

While the accusations expose how much damage Russia can do in foreign lands, through remote hacking and on-site infiltration — they also expose how little Western countries can do to stop it.

Russia is already under EU and U.S. sanctions, and dozens of GRU agents and alleged Russian trolls have already been indicted by the U.S but will likely never be handed over to face American justice.

Still, to the Western public, Thursday may have been a pivotal day, with accusations so extensive, and the chorus of condemnation so loud, that it left little doubt of massive Russian wrongdoing. A wealth of surveillance footage released by Western intelligence agencies was quickly and overwhelmingly confirmed by independent reporting.

The litany of accusations of GRU malfeasance began overnight, when British and Australian authorities accused the Russian agency of being behind the catastrophic 2017 cyberattack in Ukraine. The malicious software outbreak knocked out ATMs, gas stations, pharmacies and hospitals and, according to a secret White House assessment recently cited by Wired, caused $10 billion in damage worldwide.

The British and Australians also linked the GRU to other hacks, including the Democratic Party email leaks and online cyber propaganda that sowed havoc before Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election.

Later Thursday, Dutch defense officials released photos and a timeline of GRU agents’ botched attempt to break into the chemical weapons watchdog using Wi-Fi hacking equipment hidden in a car parked outside a nearby Marriott Hotel. The OPCW was investigating a nerve agent attack on a former GRU spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter in Salisbury, England, that Britain has blamed on the Russian government. Moscow vehemently denies involvement.

Photographs released by the Dutch Ministry of Defense showed a trunk loaded with a computer, battery, a bulky white transformer and a hidden antenna; officials said the equipment was operational when Dutch counterintelligence interrupted the operation.

What Dutch authorities found seemed to be the work of an amateur. A taxi receipt in the pocket of one of the agents showed he had hired a cab to take him from a street next to GRU headquarters to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. A laptop found with the team appeared to tie them to other alleged GRU hacks.

The men were expelled instead of arrested, because they were traveling on diplomatic passports.

The Dutch also accused the GRU of trying to hack investigators examining the 2014 downing of a Malaysian Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine that killed all 298 people on board. A Dutch-led team says it has strong evidence the missile that brought the plane down came from a Russia-based military unit. Russia has denied the charge.

Later Thursday, the U.S. Justice Department charged seven GRU officers — including the four caught in The Hague — in an international hacking rampage that targeted more than 250 athletes, a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company, a Swiss chemical laboratory and the OPCW.

The indictment said the GRU targets had publicly supported a ban on Russian athletes in international sports competitions and because they had condemned what they called a state-sponsored doping program by Russia.

U.S. prosecutors said the Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company and the OPCW.

The seven were identified as: Aleksei Morenets, 41; Evgenii Serebriakov, 37; Ivan Yermakov, 32; Artem Malyshev, 30; and Dmitriy Badin, 27; who were each assigned to Military Unit 26165, and Oleg Sotnikov, 46, and Alexey Minin, 46, who were also GRU officers.

The U.S. indictment says the hacking was often conducted remotely. If that wasn’t successful, the hackers would conduct “on-site” or “close access” hacking operations, with trained GRU members traveling with sophisticated equipment to target their victims through Wi-Fi networks.

The World Anti-Doping Agency, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the Canadian anti-doping agency were all identified by the U.S. indictment against the Russians.

WADA said the alleged hackers “sought to violate athletes’ rights by exposing personal and private data — often then modifying them — and ultimately undermine the work of WADA and its partners in the protection of clean sport.”

Travis Tygart, the CEO of the U.S. anti-doping agency and a prominent critic of Russian athletes’ drug use, says “a system that was abusing its own athletes with an institutionalized doping program has now been indicted for perpetrating cyberattacks on innocent athletes from around the world.”

Russia denied everything.

Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the foreign affairs committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said the accusations were fake and intended to “delegitimize” a resurgent Russia. The West has picked up the GRU as “a modern analogue of the KGB which served as a bugaboo for people in the West during the Cold War,” he said.
