One of the most satisfying moments in any spy thriller is when the bad guy — the black-hat operative who has been killing and tormenting his adversaries — does something dumb and gets caught. That’s essentially what’s been happening recently with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pet spy agency, the GRU.

What’s fascinating about the GRU revelations is that they seem to reflect an aggressive pushback after several years in which Putin (chiefly through the GRU) launched recklessly aggressive covert actions against the West. The West is retaliating (at least in part) with public information that blows GRU covers and operating methods and, frankly, makes them look clumsy and incompetent.

These disclosures are the latest in a string of disasters for the GRU, a military spy service known for its panache and daring. Now, we should add sloppiness to that list of operational trademarks. The GRU’s spycraft occasionally looks closer to TV’s Maxwell Smart than John le Carre’s vaunted fictional spymaster, Karla.

The latest exposé of the GRU’s not-so-secret tradecraft came Tuesday, when a British investigative group shredded a layer of the lies surrounding Russia’s attempt to poisonformer agent Sergei Skripal in March. It was the equivalent of the tough guy in the trench coat getting caught with his undershorts around his ankles.

Bellingcat, as the group calls itself, presented photographic evidence showing that a suspect in the Skripal attack, who the Russians had claimed was a tourist named Petrov who worked in the sports nutrition business, is really a GRU doctor named Alexander Mishkin. Last month, Bellingcat had exposed another suspect, whose cover identity was Ruslan Boshirov, as GRU Col. Anatoliy Chepiga.

The most detailed exposures of GRU tradecraft came in a Justice Department indictmentthat was unsealed Oct. 4, in tandem with supporting statements from Britain and the Netherlands. The indictment, which named seven GRU officers, included details about Russian spy operations that could have been collected only by the CIA and National Security Agency and its foreign partners. (Three of the Russians had also been named in July’s indictment of 12 GRU officers for meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.)

Last week’s indictment is a treasure trove for spy mavens. One GRU hacking operation sought to sabotage the World Anti-Doping Agency’s effort to punish Russia for systematically drugging its Olympic athletes; a second, chilling GRU hack stole information from Westinghouse about advanced U.S. nuclear-reactor technology. A third targeted two investigations of the Novichok nerve agent used in the Skripal hit, one by an international chemical weapons group in The Hague and another by a chemical laboratory in Switzerland. These were brazen operations, but they were also messy.

The dry pages of the indictment reveal tradecraft secrets that could animate a half-dozen spy novels. The GRU operatives used spoof websites to “spearphish” victims into revealing login information (creating a “westinqhousenuclear.com” site, with the misspelled “q,” for example). They made payments in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. (Weren’t those supposed to be untraceable?) They used malware tools with names such as “Gamefish,” “Chopstick” and “X-tunnel.” They dumped their hacked information by sending direct messages on Twitter to 116 reporters and exchanging emails with 70 journalists.

For the past few years, the CIA, NSA and FBI have watched as hackers and whistleblowers (perhaps with a helping hand from Moscow) revealed the agencies’ hacking techniques. For U.S. intelligence officials, revenge is a dish best eaten cold.

The most astonishing disclosure came from the Dutch, who caught four GRU officers red-handed in The Hague as they were hacking the headquarters of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. As Dutch intelligence officers intervened, “the conspirators abandoned their equipment,” including a backpack and other gear that revealed techniques and a string of other operations, according to the indictment. The Dutch even found a taxi receipt showing that a member of the team had left the rear entrance of the GRU headquarters in Moscow and headed to the airport.

The implicit message in all of this: If you hit us, one of the ways we will retaliate is by exposing your operatives, sources and methods. There are other reprisals underway, but these public disclosures undermine the GRU’s operational capabilities. And they must make the Russian spy service wonder: What else do the Americans and their allies know? If agent A is blown, then what about his colleagues B, C and D?

The CIA and its foreign allies don’t normally like to divulge secrets like these, because they reveal how much they know about their adversary. The revelations are a public warning to Putin: Knock it off; you’re more vulnerable than you think.

What Happened

Netherland’s Accusations

On October 4, Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld announced during a press conference that the Dutch military intelligence and security services foiled an attack by Russian hackers against the Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The Dutch Minister elaborated further that the attempted cyber-attack was made on April 13 amidst reports that the OPCW was then “working to independently verify the UK’s analysis of the chemical used in the poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury.” It is noteworthy that the OPCW confirmed that a Novichok nerve agent was used in the Salisbury attack. The OPCW was also due “to conduct analysis of the [April 7] chemical weapons attack in Douma [Syria]”.[1]

Four Russians, believed to be staff members of the Main Directorate of the Russian General Staff (GRU), were suspected of involvement in the cyber-attack. They were expelled from the Netherlands that very day.

The four Russians are Alexei Morenets, Yevgeny Serebryakov, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexei Minin.[2]

According to the Dutch Defense Ministry, the Russian intelligence officers set up specialized equipment in the vicinity of the OPCW offices and were preparing to hack into OPCW networks.[3] [4]Further investigation revealed that Yevgeniy Serebriakov also conducted cyber activities in Malaysia. He was trying to collect information about the investigation into the downed Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 airplane. The operation in which he was involved targeted Malaysian government institutions including the Attorney General’s office and the Royal Malaysian Police.[5]

The Russian Foreign Ministry sent a note to the Dutch Ambassador to Russia Renee Jones-Bos, stating that the expulsion of Russian citizens from the Netherlands in April is a provocation related to Moscow’s position in the OPCW. “The note stresses that the Russian side considers the detainment and expulsion of Russian citizens as a provocation related to Russia’s line in the OPCW, aimed against the politicization of this influential international structure’s activities and the attachment of attributive functions in violation of the CWC [the Chemical Weapons Convention] and the UN Charter,” the ministry stated.[6]

The UK’s Accusations

On the same day, the UK government accused the GRU of being behind cyber-attacks on international organizations, operating under different names.[7] The UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) accused the GRU of orchestrating cyber-attacks against the systems database of the Montreal-based World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), transport systems in Ukraine, and businesses.

The UK NCSC assessed with high confidence that the GRU is “almost certainly” responsible for the following cyber-attacks:

  • In October 2017, BadRabbit ransomware encrypted hard drives and rendered IT inoperable. This caused disruption including to the Kyiv metro, Odessa airport, Russia’s central bank and two Russian media outlets (Fontanka.ru and the news agency Interfax).
  • In August 2016, confidential medical files relating to a number of international athletes were released. WADA stated publicly that this data came from a hack of its AntiDoping Administration and Management system.
  • In 2016, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was hacked and documents were subsequently published online.
  • Between July and August 2015 multiple email accounts belonging to a small UKbased TV station, Islam channel, were accessed and the content was stolen.[8]

US Accusations

Later, on the same day, the US Justice Department announced charges against seven Russians, referred as GRU officials, accused of cyber-attacking the database system of WADA and other international organizations.

US Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers stated: “We announce an indictment charging seven Russian military officers with violation of several US criminal laws for malicious cyber activities against the United States and its allies…”

The FBI said identified the alleged suspects as Aleksei Morenets, Evgenii Serebriakov, Ivan Yermakov, Artem Malyshev, Dmitriy Badin, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexey Minin.[9]

Canada’s Accusations: The Government of Canada Assesses With High Confidence That The GRU Was Responsible For Cyber Attacks Against International Organizations

On the same day, the Global Affairs Canada stated: “Today, Canada joins its allies in identifying and exposing a series of malicious cyber-operations by the Russian military. These acts form part of a broader pattern of activities by the Russian government that lie well outside the bounds of appropriate behavior, demonstrate a disregard for international law and undermine the rules-based international order. Canada calls on all those who value this order to come together in its defense.

Some of these acts have a connection with Canada. In 2016, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), an independent international agency headquartered in Canada, publically disclosed that the cyber-hacker group Fancy Bear/APT28 had released confidential athlete data on its website that it had obtained illegally from WADA’s Anti-Doping Administration and Management System. The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the Russian military’s intelligence arm, the GRU, was responsible for this incident.

“In 2016, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport was compromised by malware enabling unauthorized access to the Centre’s network. The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the GRU was responsible for this compromise.

Earlier today, Canada’s allies disclosed that in April 2018, following the use of a Novichok agent in Salisbury, United Kingdom, the Russian military attempted to use its cyber-capabilities to gain access to official networks of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the GRU was responsible for this attempt. Canada is a member of the OPCW and currently sits on its Executive Council. Canada supports the OPCW’s efforts to rid the world of these abhorrent weapons and global efforts to address the recent illegal use of chemical weapons in Syria and the United Kingdom.

“The incidents identified by Canada and our allies, including the GRU’s attempt to undermine the work of the OPCW, underscore the Russian government’s disregard for the rules-based international order, international law and established norms. The attempt to compromise the networks of the OPCW is consistent with Russia’s broader attacks on the independence and professionalism of the personnel of the OPCW…”[10]

Bellingcat’s Investigation

It is worth noting that after the accusations, the website Bellingcat and its Russian investigative partner, The Insider, ran their own investigation. The investigation’s goal was: “to verify that the identities disclosed by the Dutch authorities were in fact the authentic identities of the persons involved. Comparing data from different databases dated 2002 to 2014, Bellingcat was able to confirm that these identities are indeed real, as opposed to cover personas, which is the case with the two GRU officers involved in the Skripal poisoning case.”

As a result of the quick search in Russian Vehicle and Road Police database, the researchers were able to identify around 300 additional individuals who may serve as GRU agents.[11]

When asked about potential plans to reshuffle Russia’s Defense Ministry or the General Staff following the Dutch accusations, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented that there is no reason to reshuffle the top brass.[12]

Reactions To The Netherland’s Accusations

MFA: A Russian Citizen With A Mobile Device Is Perceived To Be A Spy Although By The Logic Of Western Politicians, They All Live In ‘Backward Russia’

The following is the reaction by the Russian MFA To the accusations against Russia by the Dutch Defense Ministry:

“We have repeatedly warned the Dutch side, including through diplomatic channels, that the anti-Russian spy mania campaign accompanied by deliberate leaks in the media about the alleged cyber-attacks is causing serious harm to bilateral relations.

“The Netherlands waited for almost six months to report the deportation of four Russian nationals from the country. This may look strange only to those who are not in the know. On October 9, a session of the OPCW opens to discuss the funding of the Attribution Mechanism in the OPCW Technical Secretariat. A number of Western states are persistently seeking the creation of this mechanism for appointing the ‘guilty’ of using chemical weapons, despite the fact that such a mechanism would violate the norms of international law and the prerogatives of the UN Security Council. Obviously, the current bogus story is yet another step towards forming the ‘required’ political background for pushing through this illegal initiative.

It is unclear who is supposed to believe these statements in which Russian citizens are accused of attempted cyber-attacks on the OPCW and a striving to obtain information of the investigation into the crash of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, as if it is necessary to be near the target of an attack to get it.

“Indicatively, against the backdrop of strong paranoia as regards ‘all-powerful Russian spies’ that has been fanned up in the West in the past few years, any Russian citizen with a mobile device is perceived to be a spy although in the logic of Western politicians, they all live in the ‘backward Russia.’

“As for the mention of MH17 crash, it is not at all incidental in this context. The Dutch party seems to have no response to the facts that were presented by the Russian Defense Ministry regarding the origin of the missile that downed the Malaysian airliner and other issues involved in this tragic incident.

“We noted that the news conference of the Dutch Defense Ministry was attended by a representative of Great Britain, which is firmly in the lead in the number of absurd anti-Russian attacks.

“By a strange concurrence of circumstances, all this again coincided with London’s accusations against Russia of perpetrating cyber-attacks against a number of organizations, including the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

“Given all of these factors, we can conclude that another staged propaganda campaign against our country is underway.”[13]

Russian FM Lavrov: This Is Another Example Of Megaphone Diplomacy And Neglect Of Legal Mechanisms

During a press conference with his Italian counterpart Enzo Moavero Milanesi, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov answered a question about the Netherlands’s accusations of cyber spying.

Lavrov said: “As a brief reminder, there was nothing secret about the trip of Russian specialists to the Hague last April. This was a routine trip and they did not try to hide anything either when registering at the hotel, arriving at the airport or visiting our Embassy. They were detained, not allowed to contact representatives of our Embassy in the Netherlands and asked to leave. Honestly, it all looked like a misunderstanding, all the more so since there were no protests or demarches on behalf of Moscow or the Hague in connection with this incident.

“But half a year later, I believe some three weeks ago in September, it was leaked to the Dutch press that these people were involved in cyber spying. As we were interested in these developments, we invited the Dutch ambassador to the Foreign Ministry and asked him to share with us the details and facts about this leak in the media. We did not receive a sensible answer.

“On October 3, our ambassador was summoned by the Dutch Foreign Ministry and given a note of protest as regards this episode with the accusations that came to your attention through the media. When the ambassador asked where he can find concrete facts and relevant materials, he was told that we will learn about everything at a news conference that will be held by the Defense Ministry. This is the whole story.

“I think this is yet another example of megaphone diplomacy and neglect of legal mechanisms that were established and exist for discussing problems that arise in relations between any countries, including Russia and the Netherlands.

“We are inviting the Dutch ambassador to consider this point of view I’ve just expressed. We will provide additional detailed information.

“Now [let me say] a few words about the session of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that opens literally tomorrow. Probably, it will be used by those countries that want to distort the contents of the Chemical Weapons Convention and turn its Technical Secretariat into a kind of punitive body, thereby undermining international law, specifically the prerogatives of the UN Security Council.

“I would also like to draw your attention to the fact that I think a meeting of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) at the level of defense ministers was held on the same day as the news conference. So if we are talking about direct or indirect coincidences, we must also bear this in mind. The session of the European Council where heads of state and the EU government will also deal with different issues will take place in the near future. Some politicians may have believed that the April episode in the media exactly at this time would help divert attention from complicated issues now being discussed by the EU and, to a certain extent, NATO, such as aligning the defense capabilities of these two structures.”[14]

Reactions To UK’s Accusations

Russia’s MFA Zakharova: ‘The Rich Imagination Of Our British Colleagues Is Without Boundaries’

Russian MFA spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated:

“We are witnessing the beginning of another anti-Russia campaign in the wake of this decision. As soon as Russia was reinstated to this international sporting organization, Great Britain, a loyal companion-in-arms of the United States, a country that spared no effort to curb Russia’s success, has rushed to support its ally with a flurry of fabricated news, accusations and statements at all levels.

“For example, the other day the British Foreign Office, which now turns out to be also specializing in information and communications security issues, released a whole bunch of mind-boggling ‘highly likely’ statements about the alleged GRU’s complicity in cyber-attacks around the world, including attacks on the WADA’s servers. For several weeks, there was a huge hullabaloo over the GRU in connection with the Skripals, Salisbury and Amesbury and now this hyped-up story can be easily linked to the situation at the WADA…

“Indeed, the rich imagination of our British colleagues is without boundaries. I would like to see the people who are concocting all this. Probably, they are simply basing everything on themselves, and describing what they themselves are engaged in. It is unworthy of a state that claims one of the leading roles in the world.”[15]

Reactions To US Charges Against 7 GRU Officers

Russia’s Deputy FM Ryabkov: The US Authorities Continue To Poison The Atmosphere Of Russian-American Relations

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov commented:

“We are watching with regret how the US authorities continue to poison the atmosphere of Russian-American relations by bringing ever new groundless accusations against Russia, which certain other NATO countries would hurry to repeat at the command from Washington. Again, the Western public is being scared with ‘Russian hackers,

Ignatius: West catching and exposing Russia’s GRU hackers
Thu, 11 Oct 2018 07:53:03 -0400

By David Ignatius

One of the most satisfying moments in any spy thriller is when the bad guy — the black-hat operative who has been killing and tormenting his adversaries — does something dumb and gets caught. That’s essentially what’s been happening recently with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pet spy agency, the GRU.

What’s fascinating about the GRU revelations is that they seem to reflect an aggressive pushback after several years in which Putin (chiefly through the GRU) launched recklessly aggressive covert actions against the West. The West is retaliating (at least in part) with public information that blows GRU covers and operating methods and, frankly, makes them look clumsy and incompetent.

These disclosures are the latest in a string of disasters for the GRU, a military spy service known for its panache and daring. Now, we should add sloppiness to that list of operational trademarks. The GRU’s spycraft occasionally looks closer to TV’s Maxwell Smart than John le Carre’s vaunted fictional spymaster, Karla.

The latest expose of the GRU’s not-so-secret tradecraft came Tuesday, when a British investigative group shredded a layer of the lies surrounding Russia’s attempt to poison former agent Sergei Skripal in March. It was the equivalent of the tough guy in the trench coat getting caught with his undershorts around his ankles.

Bellingcat, as the group calls itself, presented photographic evidence showing that a suspect in the Skripal attack, who the Russians had claimed was a tourist named Petrov who worked in the sports nutrition business, is really a GRU doctor named Alexander Mishkin. Last month, Bellingcat had exposed another suspect, whose cover identity was “Ruslan Boshirov,” as GRU Col. Anatoliy Chepiga.

The most detailed exposures of GRU tradecraft came in a Justice Department indictment that was unsealed Oct. 4, in tandem with supporting statements from Britain and the Netherlands. The indictment, which named seven GRU officers, included details about Russian spy operations that could only have been collected by the CIA and National Security Agency and its foreign partners. (Three of the Russians had also been named in July’s indictment of 12 GRU officers for meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.)

Last week’s indictment is a treasure trove for spy mavens. One GRU hacking operation sought to sabotage the World Anti-Doping Agency’s effort to punish Russia for systematically drugging its Olympic athletes; a second, chilling GRU hack stole information from Westinghouse about advanced U.S. nuclear-reactor technology. A third targeted two investigations of the Novichok nerve agent used in the Skripal hit, one by an international chemical weapons group in The Hague and another by a chemical laboratory in Switzerland. These were brazen operations; but they were also messy.

The dry pages of the indictment reveal tradecraft secrets that could animate a half-dozen spy novels. The GRU operatives used spoof websites to “spearphish” victims into revealing login information (creating a “westinqhousenuclear.com” site, with the misspelled “q,” for example). They made payments in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. (Weren’t those supposed to be untraceable?) They used malware tools with names like “Gamefish,” “Chopstick” and “X-tunnel.” They dumped their hacked information by sending direct messages on Twitter to 116 reporters and exchanging emails with 70 journalists.

For the last few years, the CIA, NSA and FBI have watched as hackers and whistleblowers (perhaps with a helping hand from Moscow) revealed the agencies’ hacking techniques. For U.S. intelligence officials, revenge is a dish best eaten cold.

The most astonishing disclosure came from the Dutch, who caught four GRU officers red-handed in The Hague as they were hacking the headquarters of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. As Dutch intelligence officers intervened, “the conspirators abandoned their equipment,” including a backpack and other gear that revealed techniques and a string of other operations, according to the indictment. The Dutch even found a taxi receipt showing that a member of the team had left the rear entrance of the GRU headquarters in Moscow and headed to the airport.

The implicit message in all of this: If you hit us, one of the ways we will retaliate is by exposing your operatives, sources and methods. There are other reprisals underway, but these public disclosures undermine the GRU’s operational capabilities. And they must make the Russian spy service wonder: What else do the Americans and their allies know? If agent A is blown, then what about his colleagues B, C, and D.

The CIA and its foreign allies don’t normally like to reveal secrets like these, because they reveal how much they know about their adversary. The revelations are a public warning to Putin: Knock it off, you’re more vulnerable than you think.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


What we know so far:


More pictures of the dad and daughter have emerged today.

Meanwhile, dramatic photos show the moment a police officer crouched down next to the shopping centre bench where the pair were found in “catatonic” state.

Yesterday Amber Rudd confirmed that the brave cop’s condition has improved, and he was “engaged and talking.”

But docs fear that former military intelligence officer Skripal is on the brink of death.

A Whitehall source told The Times: “The feeling is that he is not going to make it out of this.

“I think it could be more positive [for Yulia]. They are hopeful that she might be able to pull through.”

The police officer’s condition is thought to be less severe than the other two patients.

The Russian pair were “targeted specifically” when they were dosed by a deadly nerve agent, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley confirmed yesterday.

All the sites involved in the investigation are now secured – but a police presence may stay in Salisbury for at least a couple of days, Mr Rowley added.

Last night security sources told The Sun that the poison could only have been produced in a handful of labs worldwide – including the Russian government’s notorious Yasenevo complex.

Tory MP and ex-Army officer Bob Seely said: “In my mind now, there is now no doubt this was a hit ordered by Putin, and by using something complex they’re effectively showing off.

“We’re now in public execution territory. The Russians are basically saying, they don’t care who knows it was them. It is a very alarming development.”

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, ex-commander of the Army’s chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear regiment, said: “All the circumstances point in the direction of sarin. It’s very toxic and the symptoms displayed tally with its effects.”

It comes as a fellow Russian exile Valery Morozov claimed that Skripal was not retired – and regularly met with Kremlin officials at the Russian Embassy.

He told Channel 4 News: “If you have a military intelligence officer living after retirement in the UK every month going to the embassy to meet military intelligence officers.

“For me being political refugee, I thought that this contact might not be very good for me because it can bring some questions from British officials.”

Last night it was claimed that Skripal was close to a security consultant who worked for the company that compiled the explosive “dirty dossier” on Donald Trump.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the unnamed consultant lived near Skripal and knew him for some time.

The amazing “coincidence:

On March 2, 2018, Friday: Yanukovych Calls For Direct Talks Between Kyiv, Separatists.

The same day March 2, 2018, the “Russian team”: “Boshirov, Petrov, Fedotov”  arrive from Moscow just for 2-3 days. On March 3, Skripal’s daughter arrived. 

It is possible that the team brought the message directly from Yanukovych and/or others confirming that the separatist war in Donbass is over

Hypothetically, Skripal got hysterical and staged his own and his daughters’s poisoning, sending the message back: “YOU POISONED ME!” 

It is very possible that he had secret plans to reunite Russia and Ukraine and to revive the USSR. After his arrest he claimed that he was not bound by any oath because he gave it to the Soviet union, not Russia. 

He probably poisoned himself, and he himself is THE POISON.

“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 filing was notable for touching on Mr. Gates’s activities during the campaign. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. and conspiring to defraud the United States for activities related to his work in Ukraine mostly before joining the Trump campaign, and agreed to cooperate with the investigation.

Mr. Gates’s communications with Mr. Kilimnik were revealed in the sentencing documents of a former lawyer for the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Alex van der Zwaan, who pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. about his interactions with Mr. Kilimnik and with Mr. Gates.

Mr. Kilimnik also played a role in a reported effort by Mr. Manafort to contact a Russian oligarch, Oleg V. Deripaska, during the campaign.

Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kilimnik had cooperated on an ultimately unsuccessful business venture financed by Mr. Deripaska, known as the Pericles investment fund.

In July, 2016, while Mr. Manafort was chairman of the Trump campaign, Mr. Manafort emailed Mr. Kilimnik asking him to offer Mr. Deripaska “private briefings” about the campaign in exchange for resolving a multimillion dollar financial dispute related to the business, according to The Washington Post. Mr. Deripaska has said he never received the offer. Mr. Kilimnik, reached by email, declined to comment on this matter and the special counsel’s court filings.

Mr. Kilimnik has surfaced as a fringe figure in other aspects of the Russian investigation.

Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who attended a Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in June of 2016 where a Russian lawyer had promised to provide negative information on Hillary Clinton, had also worked in Ukraine with Mr. Kilimnik closely enough to know his nickname among Russian-leaning political operatives in Kiev.

At the time, about eight years ago, Mr. Akhmetshin was trying to persuade political advisers of Mr. Yanukovych to buy the rights to a book that cast a domestic political opponent in a negative light, and attended meetings with Mr. Kilimnik.

War in Donbass – Wikipedia
Thu, 11 Oct 2018 03:22:31 -0400

The War in Donbass is an armed conflict in the Donbass region of Ukraine. From the beginning of March 2014, protests by pro-Russian and anti-government groups took place in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine, commonly collectively called the “Donbass”, in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and the Euromaidan movement. These demonstrations, which followed the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation (February to March 2014), and which were part of a wider group of concurrent pro-Russian protests across southern and eastern Ukraine, escalated into an armed conflict between the separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and LuhanskPeople’s Republics (DPR and LPR respectively), and the Ukrainian government.[40] In the Donetsk People’s Republic, from May 2014 until a change of the top leadership in August 2014,[41] some of the top leaders were Russian citizens.[42] During the middle of 2014, Russian paramilitaries were reported to make up between 15% to 80% (Ukrainian data) of the combatants.[42] There were an estimated 6,000 Russian troops and 40,000 rebels in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine as of September 2017.[43][44]

Skripal poisoning suspects’ explanation does not add up
Wed, 10 Oct 2018 18:47:08 -0400

mikenova shared this story from @IrishTimesWorldFeed.

The explanation offered on Russian television on Thursday by the men known as Ruslan Boshirovand Alexander Petrov for their trip to London and Salisbury throws up as many questions as answers.

The men – leading suspects in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia – say they were so keen to visit Salisbury cathedral that they travelled to the city on two consecutive days.

On Saturday, March 3rd – which the British authorities claim was the date of a reconnaissance mission – they got to Salisbury train station but say they were driven back by snow, even though local newspaper pictures show people going about their business with little difficulty. They were less than a mile from the cathedral – perhaps a 12-minute walk – but say they could not get there that day.

The next day they accept they may have been close to the house of Sergei Skripal at the time his home was sabotaged with nerve agent, although his address is about 3km from the cathedral – their supposed destination in Salisbury and nowhere near other attractions they say they were interested in, including Old Sarum and Stonehenge.

WHY DO BOSHIROV AND PETROV SAY THEY WERE IN THE UK?

They claim they were in the UK for pleasure rather than business. They arrived on Friday, March 2nd, and say the UK was gripped by transport chaos. That is true – Storm Emma had met the so-called Beast from the East, causing a blast of heavy snow. More than 1,900 flights to or from UK and Irish airports were cancelled. In Wiltshire, a major incident was declared.

WHY DO THEY SAY THEY DECIDED TO VISIT SALISBURY?

Petrov said their friends had been suggesting for a while that they visit the “wonderful” city of Salisbury. The pair said the initial plan had been to make a day trip. “One day in Salisbury is enough. There’s not much you can do there,” said Petrov. “It’s a regular city. A regular tourist city,” said Boshirov.

WHAT DO WE KNOW OF THEIR MOVEMENTS ON SATURDAY, MARCH 3RD?

The British authorities have said the pair left their hotel in east London and arrived at Waterloo station in the capital at 11.45am, where they caught a train to Salisbury and arrived at about 2.25pm. They were in Salisbury for just under two hours, leaving at about 4.10pm. Why such a short stay?

Petrov said the pair had planned to visit not only the cathedral but Stonehenge and the ancient settlement of Old Sarum, which is north of the city centre.

“We wanted to walk around the city but since the whole city was covered with snow, we spent only 30 minutes there,” said Petrov. “We were all wet.” He added: “It didn’t work out because of the slush. The whole city was covered with slush.” Petrov said they returned to the station and spent about 40 minutes there drinking coffee in the station cafe. “We were drenched up to our knees,” added Boshirov.

The account makes little sense. The cathedral is only 1.2km from the train station – a walk of about 15 minutes. They could easily have strolled there in the half hour they said they spent there. There was snow on the ground but people were going about their business.

The Salisbury Journal’s live blog showed that by the time the pair were there, the snow on city centre pavements was sparse.

SO WHERE WERE THEY IF THEY COULDN’T MAKE IT TO THE CATHEDRAL?

British counter terrorism police have said they believe the March 3rd visit was a reconnaissance mission. But the police have only released one image from Salisbury on the Saturday – the men at 4.11pm at the railway station, about to return to London. No images or timeline have been issued of the men’s movements around Salisbury that day. The British police have not said if they were seen near the Skripal house.

THEY SEEM WELL-INFORMED ABOUT THE CATHEDRAL?

Petrov takes the lead on his description of the cathedral: “It’s famous throughout Europe and, in fact, throughout the world, I think. It’s famous for its 123m spire. It’s famous for its clock. It’s the oldest working clock in the world.” He later refers to it as the “cathedral of the blessed Virgin Mary”. The phrase is a little clunky and is not commonly used in modern-day Salisbury.

But Wikipedia does use the phrase and gives details about the spire and clock.

WHY DO BOSHIROV AND PETROV SAY THEY RETURNED ON SUNDAY, MARCH 4TH?

They say the snow had melted in London and it was warmer. “We really wanted to see Old Sarum and the cathedral,” said Petrov. They imply that this time they did reach the cathedral and possibly Old Sarum. “The cathedral is very beautiful,” said Boshirov. The pair said they took pictures at the cathedral – and would have been spotted by CCTV cameras there. No images have been released by the counter-terrorism police of them at or near the cathedral. Sources at the cathedral said they have no knowledge of them visiting. They could not have visited Old Sarum – it was closed.

WHERE ELSE DO THEY CLAIM THEY WENT?

They say they visited a park and coffee shop. Mention of a park will prick up the ears of security officials – and Salisbury citizens.

A city centre park, Queen Elizabeth Gardens, was cordoned off and searched after Charlie Rowleyand Dawn Sturgess were poisoned with Novichok. The pair had been in the park the day before they fell ill. Police have said they do not know where the pair dumped the Novichok used in the attack on Sergei Skripal’s home.

DOES THE RUSSIANS’ ACCOUNT TALLY WITH WHAT BRITISH POLICE HAVE SAID?

According to the UK authorities, after arriving in Salisbury at 11.48am on March 4th, the men did not go straight to the city centre or the cathedral. They should have turned right into the city if they were on the tourist trail. Instead they turned left and walked directly to the residential area northwest of the city where Skripal lived. They were caught at 11.58am by a CCTV camera at a Shell petrol station on Wilton Road. On the opposite side of the road is a tree-lined path that leads up to the Skripal house on Christie Miller Road. If they went straight to the house and carried out the attack, they would have been at the Skripal front door shortly after noon.

WHAT DID THEY THEY SAY ABOUT THE SKRIPAL HOME. DID THEY GO CLOSE TO IT?

“Maybe. We don’t know,” said Petrov. “Maybe we passed it, or maybe we didn’t,” said his colleague. There is no reason for them to be anywhere near it – it is 3km northwest of the cathedral.

WHAT DID THE PAIR DO NEXT?

About an hour after the attack, at 1.05pm, they were in the city centre on Fisherton Street, according to the British authorities. The police have not given details of how they got there. At this point they were within a few minutes’ walk of the cathedral. There is a gap of about 40 minutes in the timeline the police have provided between when the pair were seen in Fisherton Street and when CCTV footage picked them up at the station at 1.50pm on their way back to London.

Why spend so little time in Salisbury? Again they say they were put off by the snow. “There was heavy rain with snow . . . so we left early,” said Petrov. If they were so keen to get to Stonehenge, they could have made it. At 9.39am English Heritage was tweeting: “We’re looking forward to giving all our visitors a warm welcome to Stonehenge today. We’re open until 5pm with last tickets at 3pm.” – Guardian

Yanukovych Calls For Direct Talks Between Kyiv, Separatists
Wed, 10 Oct 2018 17:53:31 -0400

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

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has called for “direct peace talks” between Kyiv and Russia-backed separatists in Ukraine’s east to end a conflict that has killed more than 10,300 people since April 2014.

At a press conference in Moscow on March 2, Yanukovych vowed to ask the European Union, the United States, and Russia to assist in organizing the talks to reintegrate the territories controlled by the separatists into Ukraine.

“There is only one way to stop the war, which is to start peace talks with the mandatory participation of Donbas [separatists] and international observers,” Yanukovych said.

According to Yanukovych, the law on reintegration of the territories under separatist control recently adopted by Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada contradicts the Minsk peace agreements and “clearly shows” that Kyiv “has no desire to solve the crisis peacefully.”

Russia-friendly Yanukovych fled Ukraine in February 2014 following months of mass street protests in Ukraine and has been residing in Russia since.

Russia’s subsequent seizure of Crimea and its backing of the separatists in eastern Ukraine have triggered waves of U.S. and EU sanctions targeting Russian officials, companies, and economic sectors.

Yanukovych also said at the press conference that in the note he wrote to Russian President Vladimir Putin in February 2014, he never asked Putin to send troops to Ukraine.

“I proposed to hold consultations in accordance with a procedure that is stipulated in the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between Ukraine and the Russian Federation,” Yanukovych said.

Answering a question about the investigation of the killings of Euromaidan activists in February 2014 by snipers in downtown Kyiv, Yanukovych placed the blame on the protesters themselves, saying the buildings that the snipers shot the protesters from were under the activists’ control.

Yanukovych has been charged in absentia with high treason, violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, and other crimes. His trial is under way in Kyiv.

Everyone says Paul Manafort’s case has nothing to do with the Trump campaign. Here’s what they’re forgetting
Wed, 10 Oct 2018 17:48:17 -0400

Analysis

President Donald Trump’s defenders responded to the news of Paul Manafort’s plea deal on Friday with the usual refrain: His case has nothing to do with the Trump campaign or allegations that it colluded with Russia in 2016.

They’re wrong. Why? Because they’re overlooking the blackmail factor.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has painstakingly documented evidence of Manafort’s role in a 10-year scheme involving money laundering, tax evasion and illicit lobbying — crimes that could lead to decades in a prison cell. Given Manafort’s extensive ties to Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs, Russian President Vladimir Putin would almost certainly have had detailed knowledge of Manafort’s transgressions. And that means that, when Manafort was promoted to chairman of Trump’s campaign in May 2016, the Kremlin probably had vast amounts of material it could use to blackmail him. When it was revealed in August 2016 that Manafort had received at least $12.7 million in secret payments from the pro-Kremlin party of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s ousted president, that alone was enough to end his nascent return to U.S. politics.

The use of blackmail, or kompromat, in the former Soviet Union is as common as beet dishes. Indeed, Putin has cultivated his system of power around selective use of compromising information, especially evidence of financial malfeasance. And its use is reserved not only for his opponents. As the Russian journalist Yulia Latynina once wrote, “To keep kompromat on enemies is a pleasure. To keep kompromat on friends is a must.” The regime’s use of the tactic is so widespread that one scholar of modern-day Russia has described the country as a “blackmail state.”

The use of blackmail, or kompromat, in the former Soviet Union is as common as beet dishes

The gathering of kompromat is an organic process. Rarely is there a long-term strategy behind it; it often functions as a kind of insurance in business or political dealings. Accordingly, to say that the Russian government would have access to kompromat on Manafort is not necessarily to argue that its procurement was part of a sustained, centrally orchestrated campaign. Instead, it could have been casually generated through Manafort’s dealings with Kremlin-connected oligarchs and politicians, as well as Konstantin Kilimnik, his right-hand man, who Mueller has alleged had active “ties to Russian intelligence” through 2016.

Kilimnik was integral to Manafort’s decadelong scheme to defraud the United States. He was a close confidant, business associate, interpreter and someone Manafort often described as his “Russian brain.” In Kiev, Kilimnik was known as “Manafort’s Manafort,” and he probably helped the American lobbyist to use stolen or false Ukrainian identities to set up offshore shell companies that were used to launder some $30 million. Kilimnik ran Manafort’s office in Ukraine, where investigators found forged invoices, including one that billed a Manafort front company $750,000 for hundreds of nonexistent computers. The intimate relationship between Manafort and Kilimnik is perhaps best captured by Kilimnik’s frustrated attempts to contact witnesses in Europe to ensure they would not disclose Manafort’s secret lobbying in the United States, which violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

When Manafort agreed to work for Trump for no salary, he reportedly owed Deripaska almost $30 million

Kilimnik was also Manafort’s main conduit to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch within Putin’s inner circle. Kilimnik facilitated Manafort’s failed investments of Deripaska’s money and communicated with Deripaska on Manafort’s behalf when the latter wanted to use his new role as Trump’s campaign chairman to “get whole.” When Manafort agreed to work for Trump for no salary, he reportedly owed Deripaska almost $30 million, including for a $10-million unpaid loan. (It is worth noting that the Justice Department attempted to persuade the oligarch to “give up Manafort” — apparently without success.)

If Kilimnik and Deripaska knew of Manafort’s crimes and crippling financial distress, so did the Kremlin. We can safely assume that Manafort was a compromised man when, on June 9, 2016, he met with a Russian government attorney to, in an ironic twist, receive illicit “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.

But Manafort was not the only person on the Trump campaign vulnerable to potential kompromat possessed by the Kremlin. Like his campaign chairman, Trump has been plagued by self-engineered financial distress. He has grown reliant on money from the former Soviet Union, including Russia. He worked closely with politically connected oligarchs and corrupt business partners. His financial empire is shrouded in the secrecy of hundreds of shell companies. And questions about his tax and bank documents abound. The parallels between Trump and Manafort are many, but they do not end there.

Manafort’s cooperation with Mueller could soon reveal how the Kremlin employed kompromat to attack U.S. democracy, because if Putin had compromising information on the campaign chairman of a major party candidate in a U.S. general election, he would probably put it to use. The same applies to the candidate himself.

What Happened

Netherland’s Accusations

On October 4, Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld announced during a press conference that the Dutch military intelligence and security services foiled an attack by Russian hackers against the Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The Dutch Minister elaborated further that the attempted cyber-attack was made on April 13 amidst reports that the OPCW was then “working to independently verify the UK’s analysis of the chemical used in the poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury.” It is noteworthy that the OPCW confirmed that a Novichok nerve agent was used in the Salisbury attack. The OPCW was also due “to conduct analysis of the [April 7] chemical weapons attack in Douma [Syria]”.[1]

Four Russians, believed to be staff members of the Main Directorate of the Russian General Staff (GRU), were suspected of involvement in the cyber-attack. They were expelled from the Netherlands that very day.

The four Russians are Alexei Morenets, Yevgeny Serebryakov, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexei Minin.[2]

According to the Dutch Defense Ministry, the Russian intelligence officers set up specialized equipment in the vicinity of the OPCW offices and were preparing to hack into OPCW networks.[3] [4]Further investigation revealed that Yevgeniy Serebriakov also conducted cyber activities in Malaysia. He was trying to collect information about the investigation into the downed Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 airplane. The operation in which he was involved targeted Malaysian government institutions including the Attorney General’s office and the Royal Malaysian Police.[5]

The Russian Foreign Ministry sent a note to the Dutch Ambassador to Russia Renee Jones-Bos, stating that the expulsion of Russian citizens from the Netherlands in April is a provocation related to Moscow’s position in the OPCW. “The note stresses that the Russian side considers the detainment and expulsion of Russian citizens as a provocation related to Russia’s line in the OPCW, aimed against the politicization of this influential international structure’s activities and the attachment of attributive functions in violation of the CWC [the Chemical Weapons Convention] and the UN Charter,” the ministry stated.[6]

The UK’s Accusations

On the same day, the UK government accused the GRU of being behind cyber-attacks on international organizations, operating under different names.[7] The UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) accused the GRU of orchestrating cyber-attacks against the systems database of the Montreal-based World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), transport systems in Ukraine, and businesses.

The UK NCSC assessed with high confidence that the GRU is “almost certainly” responsible for the following cyber-attacks:

  • In October 2017, BadRabbit ransomware encrypted hard drives and rendered IT inoperable. This caused disruption including to the Kyiv metro, Odessa airport, Russia’s central bank and two Russian media outlets (Fontanka.ru and the news agency Interfax).
  • In August 2016, confidential medical files relating to a number of international athletes were released. WADA stated publicly that this data came from a hack of its AntiDoping Administration and Management system.
  • In 2016, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was hacked and documents were subsequently published online.
  • Between July and August 2015 multiple email accounts belonging to a small UKbased TV station, Islam channel, were accessed and the content was stolen.[8]

US Accusations

Later, on the same day, the US Justice Department announced charges against seven Russians, referred as GRU officials, accused of cyber-attacking the database system of WADA and other international organizations.

US Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers stated: “We announce an indictment charging seven Russian military officers with violation of several US criminal laws for malicious cyber activities against the United States and its allies…”

The FBI said identified the alleged suspects as Aleksei Morenets, Evgenii Serebriakov, Ivan Yermakov, Artem Malyshev, Dmitriy Badin, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexey Minin.[9]

Canada’s Accusations: The Government of Canada Assesses With High Confidence That The GRU Was Responsible For Cyber Attacks Against International Organizations

On the same day, the Global Affairs Canada stated: “Today, Canada joins its allies in identifying and exposing a series of malicious cyber-operations by the Russian military. These acts form part of a broader pattern of activities by the Russian government that lie well outside the bounds of appropriate behavior, demonstrate a disregard for international law and undermine the rules-based international order. Canada calls on all those who value this order to come together in its defense.

Some of these acts have a connection with Canada. In 2016, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), an independent international agency headquartered in Canada, publically disclosed that the cyber-hacker group Fancy Bear/APT28 had released confidential athlete data on its website that it had obtained illegally from WADA’s Anti-Doping Administration and Management System. The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the Russian military’s intelligence arm, the GRU, was responsible for this incident.

“In 2016, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport was compromised by malware enabling unauthorized access to the Centre’s network. The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the GRU was responsible for this compromise.

Earlier today, Canada’s allies disclosed that in April 2018, following the use of a Novichok agent in Salisbury, United Kingdom, the Russian military attempted to use its cyber-capabilities to gain access to official networks of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The Government of Canada assesses with high confidence that the GRU was responsible for this attempt. Canada is a member of the OPCW and currently sits on its Executive Council. Canada supports the OPCW’s efforts to rid the world of these abhorrent weapons and global efforts to address the recent illegal use of chemical weapons in Syria and the United Kingdom.

“The incidents identified by Canada and our allies, including the GRU’s attempt to undermine the work of the OPCW, underscore the Russian government’s disregard for the rules-based international order, international law and established norms. The attempt to compromise the networks of the OPCW is consistent with Russia’s broader attacks on the independence and professionalism of the personnel of the OPCW…”[10]

Bellingcat’s Investigation

It is worth noting that after the accusations, the website Bellingcat and its Russian investigative partner, The Insider, ran their own investigation. The investigation’s goal was: “to verify that the identities disclosed by the Dutch authorities were in fact the authentic identities of the persons involved. Comparing data from different databases dated 2002 to 2014, Bellingcat was able to confirm that these identities are indeed real, as opposed to cover personas, which is the case with the two GRU officers involved in the Skripal poisoning case.”

As a result of the quick search in Russian Vehicle and Road Police database, the researchers were able to identify around 300 additional individuals who may serve as GRU agents.[11]

When asked about potential plans to reshuffle Russia’s Defense Ministry or the General Staff following the Dutch accusations, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented that there is no reason to reshuffle the top brass.[12]

Reactions To The Netherland’s Accusations

MFA: A Russian Citizen With A Mobile Device Is Perceived To Be A Spy Although By The Logic Of Western Politicians, They All Live In ‘Backward Russia’

The following is the reaction by the Russian MFA To the accusations against Russia by the Dutch Defense Ministry:

“We have repeatedly warned the Dutch side, including through diplomatic channels, that the anti-Russian spy mania campaign accompanied by deliberate leaks in the media about the alleged cyber-attacks is causing serious harm to bilateral relations.

“The Netherlands waited for almost six months to report the deportation of four Russian nationals from the country. This may look strange only to those who are not in the know. On October 9, a session of the OPCW opens to discuss the funding of the Attribution Mechanism in the OPCW Technical Secretariat. A number of Western states are persistently seeking the creation of this mechanism for appointing the ‘guilty’ of using chemical weapons, despite the fact that such a mechanism would violate the norms of international law and the prerogatives of the UN Security Council. Obviously, the current bogus story is yet another step towards forming the ‘required’ political background for pushing through this illegal initiative.

It is unclear who is supposed to believe these statements in which Russian citizens are accused of attempted cyber-attacks on the OPCW and a striving to obtain information of the investigation into the crash of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, as if it is necessary to be near the target of an attack to get it.

“Indicatively, against the backdrop of strong paranoia as regards ‘all-powerful Russian spies’ that has been fanned up in the West in the past few years, any Russian citizen with a mobile device is perceived to be a spy although in the logic of Western politicians, they all live in the ‘backward Russia.’

“As for the mention of MH17 crash, it is not at all incidental in this context. The Dutch party seems to have no response to the facts that were presented by the Russian Defense Ministry regarding the origin of the missile that downed the Malaysian airliner and other issues involved in this tragic incident.

“We noted that the news conference of the Dutch Defense Ministry was attended by a representative of Great Britain, which is firmly in the lead in the number of absurd anti-Russian attacks.

“By a strange concurrence of circumstances, all this again coincided with London’s accusations against Russia of perpetrating cyber-attacks against a number of organizations, including the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

“Given all of these factors, we can conclude that another staged propaganda campaign against our country is underway.”[13]

Russian FM Lavrov: This Is Another Example Of Megaphone Diplomacy And Neglect Of Legal Mechanisms

During a press conference with his Italian counterpart Enzo Moavero Milanesi, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov answered a question about the Netherlands’s accusations of cyber spying.

Lavrov said: “As a brief reminder, there was nothing secret about the trip of Russian specialists to the Hague last April. This was a routine trip and they did not try to hide anything either when registering at the hotel, arriving at the airport or visiting our Embassy. They were detained, not allowed to contact representatives of our Embassy in the Netherlands and asked to leave. Honestly, it all looked like a misunderstanding, all the more so since there were no protests or demarches on behalf of Moscow or the Hague in connection with this incident.

“But half a year later, I believe some three weeks ago in September, it was leaked to the Dutch press that these people were involved in cyber spying. As we were interested in these developments, we invited the Dutch ambassador to the Foreign Ministry and asked him to share with us the details and facts about this leak in the media. We did not receive a sensible answer.

“On October 3, our ambassador was summoned by the Dutch Foreign Ministry and given a note of protest as regards this episode with the accusations that came to your attention through the media. When the ambassador asked where he can find concrete facts and relevant materials, he was told that we will learn about everything at a news conference that will be held by the Defense Ministry. This is the whole story.

“I think this is yet another example of megaphone diplomacy and neglect of legal mechanisms that were established and exist for discussing problems that arise in relations between any countries, including Russia and the Netherlands.

“We are inviting the Dutch ambassador to consider this point of view I’ve just expressed. We will provide additional detailed information.

“Now [let me say] a few words about the session of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that opens literally tomorrow. Probably, it will be used by those countries that want to distort the contents of the Chemical Weapons Convention and turn its Technical Secretariat into a kind of punitive body, thereby undermining international law, specifically the prerogatives of the UN Security Council.

“I would also like to draw your attention to the fact that I think a meeting of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) at the level of defense ministers was held on the same day as the news conference. So if we are talking about direct or indirect coincidences, we must also bear this in mind. The session of the European Council where heads of state and the EU government will also deal with different issues will take place in the near future. Some politicians may have believed that the April episode in the media exactly at this time would help divert attention from complicated issues now being discussed by the EU and, to a certain extent, NATO, such as aligning the defense capabilities of these two structures.”[14]

Reactions To UK’s Accusations

Russia’s MFA Zakharova: ‘The Rich Imagination Of Our British Colleagues Is Without Boundaries’

Russian MFA spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated:

“We are witnessing the beginning of another anti-Russia campaign in the wake of this decision. As soon as Russia was reinstated to this international sporting organization, Great Britain, a loyal companion-in-arms of the United States, a country that spared no effort to curb Russia’s success, has rushed to support its ally with a flurry of fabricated news, accusations and statements at all levels.

“For example, the other day the British Foreign Office, which now turns out to be also specializing in information and communications security issues, released a whole bunch of mind-boggling ‘highly likely’ statements about the alleged GRU’s complicity in cyber-attacks around the world, including attacks on the WADA’s servers. For several weeks, there was a huge hullabaloo over the GRU in connection with the Skripals, Salisbury and Amesbury and now this hyped-up story can be easily linked to the situation at the WADA…

“Indeed, the rich imagination of our British colleagues is without boundaries. I would like to see the people who are concocting all this. Probably, they are simply basing everything on themselves, and describing what they themselves are engaged in. It is unworthy of a state that claims one of the leading roles in the world.”[15]

Reactions To US Charges Against 7 GRU Officers

Russia’s Deputy FM Ryabkov: The US Authorities Continue To Poison The Atmosphere Of Russian-American Relations

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov commented:

“We are watching with regret how the US authorities continue to poison the atmosphere of Russian-American relations by bringing ever new groundless accusations against Russia, which certain other NATO countries would hurry to repeat at the command from Washington. Again, the Western public is being scared with ‘Russian hackers,’ ascribing to them the ‘hacking’ of computer networks all over the world.

“Washington is doing its best to prevent the old invention about ‘Russian meddling in the US presidential election in 2016’ from finally falling into pieces. So they are trying to bolster it up with new fakes and continue to deceive their own and the world public so as to create an additional pretext for sanctions and other measures to pressurize Russia.

Russia is used to these US methods but the purposeful fomenting of tensions in relations between nuclear powers and internationally is a dangerous path. Canada and those European countries that are devotedly catering to the US claims to world hegemony should also give thought to this.”[16]

Reactions To Canada’s Accusations

Russian Embassy To Canada: It Is Nothing More Than Cheap Spy Hysteria

The Russian Embassy to Canada told the Russian news agency TASS: “The new round of anti-Russian witch hunt around the far-fetched accusations of some cyber-attacks, which is currently being fuelled by the United States, the United Kingdom and their obedient allies, including Canada, is nothing more than cheap spy hysteria and empty guesses…

“The real aim of this crude propaganda campaign is to brainwash and intimidate own citizens and the international community with the non-existent Russian threat and to divert attention from NATO’s ongoing buildup of its offensive cyber warfare potential.”[17]

Reactions To The Synchronized Accusations By The West

Senator Kosachev: This Is A Massive Campaign Against Russia

Commenting on the synchronized accusations by the West against Russia, the head of Russia’s Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee Konstantin Kosachev wrote in his Facebook page:

“A synchronized and unanimous reaction by the West – where in addition to the British Foreign Office, Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld and NATO Secretary General Jons Stoltenberg[18] ‘showed up’ at the same time – confirms that what we are seeing is not a mere accident, but an episode in a massive campaign…

“Given the context, the fact that the name of the professional supplier of these ‘required’ fakes is the British ‘independent’ company Bellingcat, confirms the attempt to tie together anything possible into a single dossier of Russia’s fake ‘crimes’ that would justify any, even the most absurd accusations against it, and accordingly, any hostile action against it.”[19]

Russia’s Permanent Representative to the EU Chizhov: What Caused The West To Wait Six Months To Start A Coordinated Campaign Against Russia?

Russia’s Permanent Representative to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov stated:

“What caused them [i.e. the Western countries] to wait six months to start this coordinated campaign and to dump it all in one go from different sources?”

He then added: “I would define two points: firstly, the North Atlantic Council session between defense ministers, which has just ended in Brussels. One of the issues that they discussed during [the session] was strengthening the Alliance’s potential in combating cyber threats, as they state it. To put it simply, this is a principal decision to create some sort of cyber forces.”

“Secondly, on October 9, another meeting of the OPCW Executive Council will take place in The Hague. The issue on the agenda is something that Western counties have managed to push through by carefully convincing several countries, including some that are rather far from The Hague and the OPCW. It deals with granting the OPCW, a technical organization, an attributive mechanism, that is, a mechanism of determining those responsible for certain incidents, or, God forbid, for cases of chemical weapon use. Next week, they will discuss the decision on funding this initiative in practical terms.”[20]

Russian Federation Council Speaker Matviyenko: The West’s Logic Can Be Summarized With The Latin Phrase ‘Carthage Must Be Destroyed’

Commenting on the accusations, Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko compared them to Nazi propaganda tactics: “If I’m not mistaken it was Goebbels, who said that the bigger the lie the quicker people believe in it. It’s like there is a factory which is specially designed that fabricates this every day.”

She summed up the situation with the Latin phrase “Carthago delenda est” (“Carthage must be destroyed”), which symbolizes the persistent call to fight an enemy.

Matviyenko said:” This phrase might provide an example that the Russian threat must always be present’. Thus on a daily basis it’s necessary to drum a Russian threat into ordinary Western minds. That’s why they continue to fabricate fake news and provocations. We are no longer surprised. We don’t try anymore to analyze all of that, because it’s just impossible to analyze. I keep waiting for them to announce finally that Russia has destroyed Carthage – that would definitely be a final point in their quest.”

She also added that all of that “is no longer funny, it is undignified, and of interest to no one “. “That’s why I think that our Western partners should take a breath and start a normal dialogue.”[21]

MP Shkhagoshev: The West Wants To Prevent Russia’s Development

MP Adalbi Shkhagoshev, a member of the Duma Security Committee, said:

“All those decisions that are currently being adopted against Russia are targeted at impeding the speed of current Russia’s development… It looks like there has been a special organized crime group at the international level created prior to US November elections that is supposed to fill this ‘disinformation balloon’ and to stress and argue the validity of introducing more sanctions against Russia.”[22]

MP Slutsky: This Reminds Me Of The Propaganda During the Cold War

MP Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the Duma international committee, said:

“All the accusations from the Netherlands, Great Britain backed by the US regarding alleged hacking attacks are the latest crap, which can only be construed as a provocation. The one aim [of such a provocation] is to bolster a myth about Russia as an aggressor-state in order to solve some geopolitical and internal challenges. There are no proofs and no one apparently is going to present any proofs. This really reminds me of Cold War propaganda techniques back in the USSR era. This is absolutely a dead-end and a destructive policy.”[23]

MP Zheleznyak: The West Wants To Ruin Russia’s Reputation, Because Of Russia’s Success In Syria

MP Sergey Zheleznyak, member of the Duma International Affairs Committee, said:

“No doubts that this wave of unfounded allegation of cyber-attacks is a pre-planned action, aimed at undermining Russia’s reputation including in the sphere of chemical weapons. Our Western opponents just can’t calm down as they witness our successes in Syria. They are in a constant need to get worked up about the chemical weapons issue in order to cover up their provocations and new possible aggression against Syria.”[24]

Ignatius: West catching and exposing Russia’s GRU hackers

mikenova shared this story from HeraldNet.com.

By David Ignatius

One of the most satisfying moments in any spy thriller is when the bad guy — the black-hat operative who has been killing and tormenting his adversaries — does something dumb and gets caught. That’s essentially what’s been happening recently with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pet spy agency, the GRU.

What’s fascinating about the GRU revelations is that they seem to reflect an aggressive pushback after several years in which Putin (chiefly through the GRU) launched recklessly aggressive covert actions against the West. The West is retaliating (at least in part) with public information that blows GRU covers and operating methods and, frankly, makes them look clumsy and incompetent.

These disclosures are the latest in a string of disasters for the GRU, a military spy service known for its panache and daring. Now, we should add sloppiness to that list of operational trademarks. The GRU’s spycraft occasionally looks closer to TV’s Maxwell Smart than John le Carre’s vaunted fictional spymaster, Karla.

The latest expose of the GRU’s not-so-secret tradecraft came Tuesday, when a British investigative group shredded a layer of the lies surrounding Russia’s attempt to poison former agent Sergei Skripal in March. It was the equivalent of the tough guy in the trench coat getting caught with his undershorts around his ankles.

Bellingcat, as the group calls itself, presented photographic evidence showing that a suspect in the Skripal attack, who the Russians had claimed was a tourist named Petrov who worked in the sports nutrition business, is really a GRU doctor named Alexander Mishkin. Last month, Bellingcat had exposed another suspect, whose cover identity was “Ruslan Boshirov,” as GRU Col. Anatoliy Chepiga.

The most detailed exposures of GRU tradecraft came in a Justice Department indictment that was unsealed Oct. 4, in tandem with supporting statements from Britain and the Netherlands. The indictment, which named seven GRU officers, included details about Russian spy operations that could only have been collected by the CIA and National Security Agency and its foreign partners. (Three of the Russians had also been named in July’s indictment of 12 GRU officers for meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.)

Last week’s indictment is a treasure trove for spy mavens. One GRU hacking operation sought to sabotage the World Anti-Doping Agency’s effort to punish Russia for systematically drugging its Olympic athletes; a second, chilling GRU hack stole information from Westinghouse about advanced U.S. nuclear-reactor technology. A third targeted two investigations of the Novichok nerve agent used in the Skripal hit, one by an international chemical weapons group in The Hague and another by a chemical laboratory in Switzerland. These were brazen operations; but they were also messy.

The dry pages of the indictment reveal tradecraft secrets that could animate a half-dozen spy novels. The GRU operatives used spoof websites to “spearphish” victims into revealing login information (creating a “westinqhousenuclear.com” site, with the misspelled “q,” for example). They made payments in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. (Weren’t those supposed to be untraceable?) They used malware tools with names like “Gamefish,” “Chopstick” and “X-tunnel.” They dumped their hacked information by sending direct messages on Twitter to 116 reporters and exchanging emails with 70 journalists.

For the last few years, the CIA, NSA and FBI have watched as hackers and whistleblowers (perhaps with a helping hand from Moscow) revealed the agencies’ hacking techniques. For U.S. intelligence officials, revenge is a dish best eaten cold.

The most astonishing disclosure came from the Dutch, who caught four GRU officers red-handed in The Hague as they were hacking the headquarters of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. As Dutch intelligence officers intervened, “the conspirators abandoned their equipment,” including a backpack and other gear that revealed techniques and a string of other operations, according to the indictment. The Dutch even found a taxi receipt showing that a member of the team had left the rear entrance of the GRU headquarters in Moscow and headed to the airport.

The implicit message in all of this: If you hit us, one of the ways we will retaliate is by exposing your operatives, sources and methods. There are other reprisals underway, but these public disclosures undermine the GRU’s operational capabilities. And they must make the Russian spy service wonder: What else do the Americans and their allies know? If agent A is blown, then what about his colleagues B, C, and D.

The CIA and its foreign allies don’t normally like to reveal secrets like these, because they reveal how much they know about their adversary. The revelations are a public warning to Putin: Knock it off, you’re more vulnerable than you think.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What we know so far:


More pictures of the dad and daughter have emerged today.

Meanwhile, dramatic photos show the moment a police officer crouched down next to the shopping centre bench where the pair were found in “catatonic” state.

Yesterday Amber Rudd confirmed that the brave cop’s condition has improved, and he was “engaged and talking.”

But docs fear that former military intelligence officer Skripal is on the brink of death.

A Whitehall source told The Times: “The feeling is that he is not going to make it out of this.

“I think it could be more positive [for Yulia]. They are hopeful that she might be able to pull through.”

The police officer’s condition is thought to be less severe than the other two patients.

The Russian pair were “targeted specifically” when they were dosed by a deadly nerve agent, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley confirmed yesterday.

All the sites involved in the investigation are now secured – but a police presence may stay in Salisbury for at least a couple of days, Mr Rowley added.

Last night security sources told The Sun that the poison could only have been produced in a handful of labs worldwide – including the Russian government’s notorious Yasenevo complex.

Tory MP and ex-Army officer Bob Seely said: “In my mind now, there is now no doubt this was a hit ordered by Putin, and by using something complex they’re effectively showing off.

“We’re now in public execution territory. The Russians are basically saying, they don’t care who knows it was them. It is a very alarming development.”

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, ex-commander of the Army’s chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear regiment, said: “All the circumstances point in the direction of sarin. It’s very toxic and the symptoms displayed tally with its effects.”

It comes as a fellow Russian exile Valery Morozov claimed that Skripal was not retired – and regularly met with Kremlin officials at the Russian Embassy.

He told Channel 4 News: “If you have a military intelligence officer living after retirement in the UK every month going to the embassy to meet military intelligence officers.

“For me being political refugee, I thought that this contact might not be very good for me because it can bring some questions from British officials.”

Last night it was claimed that Skripal was close to a security consultant who worked for the company that compiled the explosive “dirty dossier” on Donald Trump.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the unnamed consultant lived near Skripal and knew him for some time.

The amazing “coincidence:

On March 2, 2018, Friday: Yanukovych Calls For Direct Talks Between Kyiv, Separatists.

The same day March 2, 2018, the “Russian team”: “Boshirov, Petrov, Fedotov”  arrive from Moscow just for 2-3 days. On March 3, Skripal’s daughter arrived. 

It is possible that the team brought the message directly from Yanukovych and/or others confirming that the separatist war in Donbass is over

Hypothetically, Skripal got hysterical and staged his own and his daughters’s poisoning, sending the message back: “YOU POISONED ME!” 

It is very possible that he had secret plans to reunite Russia and Ukraine and to revive the USSR. After his arrest he claimed that he was not bound by any oath because he gave it to the Soviet union, not Russia. 

He probably poisoned himself, and he himself is THE POISON.

“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 filing was notable for touching on Mr. Gates’s activities during the campaign. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. and conspiring to defraud the United States for activities related to his work in Ukraine mostly before joining the Trump campaign, and agreed to cooperate with the investigation.

Mr. Gates’s communications with Mr. Kilimnik were revealed in the sentencing documents of a former lawyer for the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Alex van der Zwaan, who pleaded guiltyto lying to the F.B.I. about his interactions with Mr. Kilimnik and with Mr. Gates.

Mr. Kilimnik also played a role in a reported effort by Mr. Manafort to contact a Russian oligarch, Oleg V. Deripaska, during the campaign.

Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kilimnik had cooperated on an ultimately unsuccessful business venture financed by Mr. Deripaska, known as the Pericles investment fund.

In July, 2016, while Mr. Manafort was chairman of the Trump campaign, Mr. Manafort emailed Mr. Kilimnik asking him to offer Mr. Deripaska “private briefings” about the campaign in exchange for resolving a multimillion dollar financial dispute related to the business, according to The Washington Post. Mr. Deripaska has said he never received the offer. Mr. Kilimnik, reached by email, declined to comment on this matter and the special counsel’s court filings.

Mr. Kilimnik has surfaced as a fringe figure in other aspects of the Russian investigation.

Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who attended a Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in June of 2016 where a Russian lawyer had promised to provide negative information on Hillary Clinton, had also worked in Ukraine with Mr. Kilimnik closely enough to know his nickname among Russian-leaning political operatives in Kiev.

At the time, about eight years ago, Mr. Akhmetshin was trying to persuade political advisers of Mr. Yanukovych to buy the rights to a book that cast a domestic political opponent in a negative light, and attended meetings with Mr. Kilimnik.

War in Donbass – Wikipedia

mikenova shared this story .

The War in Donbass is an armed conflict in the Donbass region of Ukraine. From the beginning of March 2014, protests by pro-Russian and anti-government groups took place in the Donetsk and Luhanskoblasts of Ukraine, commonly collectively called the “Donbass”, in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and the Euromaidan movement. These demonstrations, which followed the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation (February to March 2014), and which were part of a wider group of concurrent pro-Russian protests across southern and eastern Ukraine, escalated into an armed conflictbetween the separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR respectively), and the Ukrainian government.[40] In the Donetsk People’s Republic, from May 2014 until a change of the top leadership in August 2014,[41] some of the top leaders were Russian citizens.[42]During the middle of 2014, Russian paramilitaries were reported to make up between 15% to 80% (Ukrainian data) of the combatants.[42] There were an estimated 6,000 Russian troops and 40,000 rebels in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine as of September 2017.[43][44]

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

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

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

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

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

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

What we know so far:


More pictures of the dad and daughter have emerged today.

Meanwhile, dramatic photos show the moment a police officer crouched down next to the shopping centre bench where the pair were found in “catatonic” state.

Yesterday Amber Rudd confirmed that the brave cop’s condition has improved, and he was “engaged and talking.”

But docs fear that former military intelligence officer Skripal is on the brink of death.

A Whitehall source told The Times: “The feeling is that he is not going to make it out of this.

“I think it could be more positive [for Yulia]. They are hopeful that she might be able to pull through.”

The police officer’s condition is thought to be less severe than the other two patients.

The Russian pair were “targeted specifically” when they were dosed by a deadly nerve agent, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley confirmed yesterday.

All the sites involved in the investigation are now secured – but a police presence may stay in Salisbury for at least a couple of days, Mr Rowley added.

Last night security sources told The Sun that the poison could only have been produced in a handful of labs worldwide – including the Russian government’s notorious Yasenevo complex.

Tory MP and ex-Army officer Bob Seely said: “In my mind now, there is now no doubt this was a hit ordered by Putin, and by using something complex they’re effectively showing off.

“We’re now in public execution territory. The Russians are basically saying, they don’t care who knows it was them. It is a very alarming development.”

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, ex-commander of the Army’s chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear regiment, said: “All the circumstances point in the direction of sarin. It’s very toxic and the symptoms displayed tally with its effects.”

It comes as a fellow Russian exile Valery Morozov claimed that Skripal was not retired – and regularly met with Kremlin officials at the Russian Embassy.

He told Channel 4 News: “If you have a military intelligence officer living after retirement in the UK every month going to the embassy to meet military intelligence officers.

“For me being political refugee, I thought that this contact might not be very good for me because it can bring some questions from British officials.”

Last night it was claimed that Skripal was close to a security consultant who worked for the company that compiled the explosive “dirty dossier” on Donald Trump.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the unnamed consultant lived near Skripal and knew him for some time.

The amazing “coincidence:

On March 2, 2018, Friday: Yanukovych Calls For Direct Talks Between Kyiv, Separatists.

The same day March 2, 2018, the “Russian team”: “Boshirov, Petrov, Fedotov”  arrive from Moscow just for 2-3 days. On March 3, Skripal’s daughter arrived. 

It is possible that the team brought the message directly from Yanukovych and/or others confirming that the separatist war in Donbass is over

Hypothetically, Skripal got hysterical and staged his own and his daughters’s poisoning, sending the message back: “YOU POISONED ME!” 

It is very possible that he had secret plans to reunite Russia and Ukraine and to revive the USSR. After his arrest he claimed that he was not bound by any oath because he gave it to the Soviet union, not Russia. 

He probably poisoned himself, and he himself is THE POISON.

“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 filing was notable for touching on Mr. Gates’s activities during the campaign. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. and conspiring to defraud the United States for activities related to his work in Ukraine mostly before joining the Trump campaign, and agreed to cooperate with the investigation.

Mr. Gates’s communications with Mr. Kilimnik were revealed in the sentencing documents of a former lawyer for the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Alex van der Zwaan, who pleaded guiltyto lying to the F.B.I. about his interactions with Mr. Kilimnik and with Mr. Gates.

Mr. Kilimnik also played a role in a reported effort by Mr. Manafort to contact a Russian oligarch, Oleg V. Deripaska, during the campaign.

Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kilimnik had cooperated on an ultimately unsuccessful business venture financed by Mr. Deripaska, known as the Pericles investment fund.

In July, 2016, while Mr. Manafort was chairman of the Trump campaign, Mr. Manafort emailed Mr. Kilimnik asking him to offer Mr. Deripaska “private briefings” about the campaign in exchange for resolving a multimillion dollar financial dispute related to the business, according to The Washington Post. Mr. Deripaska has said he never received the offer. Mr. Kilimnik, reached by email, declined to comment on this matter and the special counsel’s court filings.

Mr. Kilimnik has surfaced as a fringe figure in other aspects of the Russian investigation.

Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American lobbyist who attended a Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in June of 2016 where a Russian lawyer had promised to provide negative information on Hillary Clinton, had also worked in Ukraine with Mr. Kilimnik closely enough to know his nickname among Russian-leaning political operatives in Kiev.

At the time, about eight years ago, Mr. Akhmetshin was trying to persuade political advisers of Mr. Yanukovych to buy the rights to a book that cast a domestic political opponent in a negative light, and attended meetings with Mr. Kilimnik.

War in Donbass – Wikipedia

mikenova shared this story .

The War in Donbass is an armed conflict in the Donbass region of Ukraine. From the beginning of March 2014, protests by pro-Russian and anti-government groups took place in the Donetsk and Luhanskoblasts of Ukraine, commonly collectively called the “Donbass”, in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and the Euromaidan movement. These demonstrations, which followed the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation (February to March 2014), and which were part of a wider group of concurrent pro-Russian protests across southern and eastern Ukraine, escalated into an armed conflictbetween the separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR respectively), and the Ukrainian government.[40] In the Donetsk People’s Republic, from May 2014 until a change of the top leadership in August 2014,[41] some of the top leaders were Russian citizens.[42]During the middle of 2014, Russian paramilitaries were reported to make up between 15% to 80% (Ukrainian data) of the combatants.[42] There were an estimated 6,000 Russian troops and 40,000 rebels in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine as of September 2017.[43][44]

Skripal poisoning suspects’ explanation does not add up

mikenova shared this story from @IrishTimesWorldFeed.

The explanation offered on Russian television on Thursday by the men known as Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov for their trip to London and Salisbury throws up as many questions as answers.

The men – leading suspects in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia – say they were so keen to visit Salisbury cathedral that they travelled to the city on two consecutive days.

On Saturday, March 3rd – which the British authorities claim was the date of a reconnaissance mission – they got to Salisbury train station but say they were driven back by snow, even though local newspaper pictures show people going about their business with little difficulty. They were less than a mile from the cathedral – perhaps a 12-minute walk – but say they could not get there that day.

The next day they accept they may have been close to the house of Sergei Skripal at the time his home was sabotaged with nerve agent, although his address is about 3km from the cathedral – their supposed destination in Salisbury and nowhere near other attractions they say they were interested in, including Old Sarum and Stonehenge.

WHY DO BOSHIROV AND PETROV SAY THEY WERE IN THE UK?

They claim they were in the UK for pleasure rather than business. They arrived on Friday, March 2nd, and say the UK was gripped by transport chaos. That is true – Storm Emma had met the so-called Beast from the East, causing a blast of heavy snow. More than 1,900 flights to or from UK and Irish airports were cancelled. In Wiltshire, a major incident was declared.

WHY DO THEY SAY THEY DECIDED TO VISIT SALISBURY?

Petrov said their friends had been suggesting for a while that they visit the “wonderful” city of Salisbury. The pair said the initial plan had been to make a day trip. “One day in Salisbury is enough. There’s not much you can do there,” said Petrov. “It’s a regular city. A regular tourist city,” said Boshirov.

WHAT DO WE KNOW OF THEIR MOVEMENTS ON SATURDAY, MARCH 3RD?

The British authorities have said the pair left their hotel in east London and arrived at Waterloo station in the capital at 11.45am, where they caught a train to Salisbury and arrived at about 2.25pm. They were in Salisbury for just under two hours, leaving at about 4.10pm. Why such a short stay?

Petrov said the pair had planned to visit not only the cathedral but Stonehenge and the ancient settlement of Old Sarum, which is north of the city centre.

“We wanted to walk around the city but since the whole city was covered with snow, we spent only 30 minutes there,” said Petrov. “We were all wet.” He added: “It didn’t work out because of the slush. The whole city was covered with slush.” Petrov said they returned to the station and spent about 40 minutes there drinking coffee in the station cafe. “We were drenched up to our knees,” added Boshirov.

The account makes little sense. The cathedral is only 1.2km from the train station – a walk of about 15 minutes. They could easily have strolled there in the half hour they said they spent there. There was snow on the ground but people were going about their business.

The Salisbury Journal’s live blog showed that by the time the pair were there, the snow on city centre pavements was sparse.

SO WHERE WERE THEY IF THEY COULDN’T MAKE IT TO THE CATHEDRAL?

British counter terrorism police have said they believe the March 3rd visit was a reconnaissance mission. But the police have only released one image from Salisbury on the Saturday – the men at 4.11pm at the railway station, about to return to London. No images or timeline have been issued of the men’s movements around Salisbury that day. The British police have not said if they were seen near the Skripal house.

THEY SEEM WELL-INFORMED ABOUT THE CATHEDRAL?

Petrov takes the lead on his description of the cathedral: “It’s famous throughout Europe and, in fact, throughout the world, I think. It’s famous for its 123m spire. It’s famous for its clock. It’s the oldest working clock in the world.” He later refers to it as the “cathedral of the blessed Virgin Mary”. The phrase is a little clunky and is not commonly used in modern-day Salisbury.

But Wikipedia does use the phrase and gives details about the spire and clock.

WHY DO BOSHIROV AND PETROV SAY THEY RETURNED ON SUNDAY, MARCH 4TH?

They say the snow had melted in London and it was warmer. “We really wanted to see Old Sarum and the cathedral,” said Petrov. They imply that this time they did reach the cathedral and possibly Old Sarum. “The cathedral is very beautiful,” said Boshirov. The pair said they took pictures at the cathedral – and would have been spotted by CCTV cameras there. No images have been released by the counter-terrorism police of them at or near the cathedral. Sources at the cathedral said they have no knowledge of them visiting. They could not have visited Old Sarum – it was closed.

WHERE ELSE DO THEY CLAIM THEY WENT?

They say they visited a park and coffee shop. Mention of a park will prick up the ears of security officials – and Salisbury citizens.

A city centre park, Queen Elizabeth Gardens, was cordoned off and searched after Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess were poisoned with Novichok. The pair had been in the park the day before they fell ill. Police have said they do not know where the pair dumped the Novichok used in the attack on Sergei Skripal’s home.

DOES THE RUSSIANS’ ACCOUNT TALLY WITH WHAT BRITISH POLICE HAVE SAID?

According to the UK authorities, after arriving in Salisbury at 11.48am on March 4th, the men did not go straight to the city centre or the cathedral. They should have turned right into the city if they were on the tourist trail. Instead they turned left and walked directly to the residential area northwest of the city where Skripal lived. They were caught at 11.58am by a CCTV camera at a Shell petrol station on Wilton Road. On the opposite side of the road is a tree-lined path that leads up to the Skripal house on Christie Miller Road. If they went straight to the house and carried out the attack, they would have been at the Skripal front door shortly after noon.

WHAT DID THEY THEY SAY ABOUT THE SKRIPAL HOME. DID THEY GO CLOSE TO IT?

“Maybe. We don’t know,” said Petrov. “Maybe we passed it, or maybe we didn’t,” said his colleague. There is no reason for them to be anywhere near it – it is 3km northwest of the cathedral.

WHAT DID THE PAIR DO NEXT?

About an hour after the attack, at 1.05pm, they were in the city centre on Fisherton Street, according to the British authorities. The police have not given details of how they got there. At this point they were within a few minutes’ walk of the cathedral. There is a gap of about 40 minutes in the timeline the police have provided between when the pair were seen in Fisherton Street and when CCTV footage picked them up at the station at 1.50pm on their way back to London.

Why spend so little time in Salisbury? Again they say they were put off by the snow. “There was heavy rain with snow . . . so we left early,” said Petrov. If they were so keen to get to Stonehenge, they could have made it. At 9.39am English Heritage was tweeting: “We’re looking forward to giving all our visitors a warm welcome to Stonehenge today. We’re open until 5pm with last tickets at 3pm.” – Guardian

Yanukovych Calls For Direct Talks Between Kyiv, Separatists

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

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has called for “direct peace talks” between Kyiv and Russia-backed separatists in Ukraine’s east to end a conflict that has killed more than 10,300 people since April 2014.

At a press conference in Moscow on March 2, Yanukovych vowed to ask the European Union, the United States, and Russia to assist in organizing the talks to reintegrate the territories controlled by the separatists into Ukraine.

“There is only one way to stop the war, which is to start peace talks with the mandatory participation of Donbas [separatists] and international observers,” Yanukovych said.

According to Yanukovych, the law on reintegration of the territories under separatist control recently adopted by Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada contradicts the Minsk peace agreements and “clearly shows” that Kyiv “has no desire to solve the crisis peacefully.”

Russia-friendly Yanukovych fled Ukraine in February 2014 following months of mass street protests in Ukraine and has been residing in Russia since.

Russia’s subsequent seizure of Crimea and its backing of the separatists in eastern Ukraine have triggered waves of U.S. and EU sanctions targeting Russian officials, companies, and economic sectors.

Yanukovych also said at the press conference that in the note he wrote to Russian President Vladimir Putin in February 2014, he never asked Putin to send troops to Ukraine.

“I proposed to hold consultations in accordance with a procedure that is stipulated in the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between Ukraine and the Russian Federation,” Yanukovych said.

Answering a question about the investigation of the killings of Euromaidan activists in February 2014 by snipers in downtown Kyiv, Yanukovych placed the blame on the protesters themselves, saying the buildings that the snipers shot the protesters from were under the activists’ control.

Yanukovych has been charged in absentia with high treason, violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, and other crimes. His trial is under way in Kyiv.

Everyone says Paul Manafort’s case has nothing to do with the Trump campaign. Here’s what they’re forgetting

mikenova shared this story from National Post.

Analysis

President Donald Trump’s defenders responded to the news of Paul Manafort’s plea deal on Friday with the usual refrain: His case has nothing to do with the Trump campaign or allegations that it colluded with Russia in 2016.

They’re wrong. Why? Because they’re overlooking the blackmail factor.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has painstakingly documented evidence of Manafort’s role in a 10-year scheme involving money laundering, tax evasion and illicit lobbying — crimes that could lead to decades in a prison cell. Given Manafort’s extensive ties to Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs, Russian President Vladimir Putin would almost certainly have had detailed knowledge of Manafort’s transgressions. And that means that, when Manafort was promoted to chairman of Trump’s campaign in May 2016, the Kremlin probably had vast amounts of material it could use to blackmail him. When it was revealed in August 2016 that Manafort had received at least $12.7 million in secret payments from the pro-Kremlin party of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s ousted president, that alone was enough to end his nascent return to U.S. politics.

The use of blackmail, or kompromat, in the former Soviet Union is as common as beet dishes. Indeed, Putin has cultivated his system of power around selective use of compromising information, especially evidence of financial malfeasance. And its use is reserved not only for his opponents. As the Russian journalist Yulia Latynina once wrote, “To keep kompromat on enemies is a pleasure. To keep kompromat on friends is a must.” The regime’s use of the tactic is so widespread that one scholar of modern-day Russia has described the country as a “blackmail state.”

The use of blackmail, or kompromat, in the former Soviet Union is as common as beet dishes

The gathering of kompromat is an organic process. Rarely is there a long-term strategy behind it; it often functions as a kind of insurance in business or political dealings. Accordingly, to say that the Russian government would have access to kompromat on Manafort is not necessarily to argue that its procurement was part of a sustained, centrally orchestrated campaign. Instead, it could have been casually generated through Manafort’s dealings with Kremlin-connected oligarchs and politicians, as well as Konstantin Kilimnik, his right-hand man, who Mueller has alleged had active “ties to Russian intelligence” through 2016.

Kilimnik was integral to Manafort’s decadelong scheme to defraud the United States. He was a close confidant, business associate, interpreter and someone Manafort often described as his “Russian brain.” In Kiev, Kilimnik was known as “Manafort’s Manafort,” and he probably helped the American lobbyist to use stolen or false Ukrainian identities to set up offshore shell companies that were used to launder some $30 million. Kilimnik ran Manafort’s office in Ukraine, where investigators found forged invoices, including one that billed a Manafort front company $750,000 for hundreds of nonexistent computers. The intimate relationship between Manafort and Kilimnik is perhaps best captured by Kilimnik’s frustrated attempts to contact witnesses in Europe to ensure they would not disclose Manafort’s secret lobbying in the United States, which violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

When Manafort agreed to work for Trump for no salary, he reportedly owed Deripaska almost $30 million

Kilimnik was also Manafort’s main conduit to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch within Putin’s inner circle. Kilimnik facilitated Manafort’s failed investments of Deripaska’s money and communicated with Deripaska on Manafort’s behalf when the latter wanted to use his new role as Trump’s campaign chairman to “get whole.” When Manafort agreed to work for Trump for no salary, he reportedly owed Deripaska almost $30 million, including for a $10-million unpaid loan. (It is worth noting that the Justice Department attempted to persuade the oligarch to “give up Manafort” — apparently without success.)

If Kilimnik and Deripaska knew of Manafort’s crimes and crippling financial distress, so did the Kremlin. We can safely assume that Manafort was a compromised man when, on June 9, 2016, he met with a Russian government attorney to, in an ironic twist, receive illicit “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.

But Manafort was not the only person on the Trump campaign vulnerable to potential kompromat possessed by the Kremlin. Like his campaign chairman, Trump has been plagued by self-engineered financial distress. He has grown reliant on money from the former Soviet Union, including Russia. He worked closely with politically connected oligarchs and corrupt business partners. His financial empire is shrouded in the secrecy of hundreds of shell companies. And questions about his tax and bank documents abound. The parallels between Trump and Manafort are many, but they do not end there.

Manafort’s cooperation with Mueller could soon reveal how the Kremlin employed kompromat to attack U.S. democracy, because if Putin had compromising information on the campaign chairman of a major party candidate in a U.S. general election, he would probably put it to use. The same applies to the candidate himself.
