Maria Zakharova commented on an interview with the head of the British MI5 about the Kremlin’s hand

An interview with the head of the British MI5, Andrew Parker, in The Guardian newspaper caused widespread discussion. Recall that Mr. Parker said that from the Russian side he sees a growing threat to the United Kingdom and his service is making every attempt to counter this growing threat. Parker's statements caused a wave of irony even in Britain itself. Her Majesty's subjects in the comments asked Parker whether it was necessary for the head of MI5 to give the first newspaper interview for more than a century for such statements ... Namely, for about 107 years, the heads of this British special department were not public. Parker decided to go to the media environment.

Maria Zakharova commented on an interview with the head of the British MI5 about the Kremlin’s hand

In the ranks of the main British counterintelligence responded to the Foreign Ministry. Office spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on Andrew Parker's statements, publishing a post in Facebook:

Today, The Guardian asked for comment on the statement by Andrew Parker, Director of the British MI-5, that he sees Russia as a threat to the stability of the UK. In the first for the entire 107-year-old history the royal counterintelligence interview the head of the service told The Guardian that Moscow "uses its entire range of government agencies and powers to move its foreign policy abroad more and more aggressively." Parker accused Russia of using “propaganda, espionage, sabotage and cyberattacks”, and also stressed that it works this way “throughout Europe and in the UK”. The task of MI-5 he sees in countering this activity.
I replied to The Guardian that to the head of МI-5, who declared that "Moscow used the entire model range to promote its foreign policy that threatens the stability of his country" I have a clarifying question: "Does he consider the appointment of Boris Johnson as head of the UK foreign affairs department? the work of the Kremlin? "

Apparently, in his interviews, Mr. Parker demonstrated that he is not the same as Mr. Komi of the FBI, who did not see the Kremlin’s hands in cyber attacks on the US network. He (Parker) sees the Kremlin’s hand everywhere, and therefore is loyal to democracy ...

    And the clearer it sees and the more this "hand" is, the more loyal it is to "democracy", or rather the United States. If they call their own prime ministers the poodle of the President of the United States, then what can we say about the heads of the special services.

        As always: Russia is shit, Great Britain is snow white. But does this Parker want to tell how their intelligence pokes their nose where they are not asking? Or is he already taking base jumping lessons without a parachute from the window? lol

        One of the main scavengers in London rides a bicycle, and in order to at least somehow make excuses for Russia, he opens his mouth.

    "And the casket just opened ..."
    "The head of MI5 wants money, fame and, probably, to support his colleagues in the Western community. The United States is also involved here, Canada," Perendzhiev said. He noted that the budget for 2017 is being distributed. “It is in Great Britain that a lot of money is allocated, various grants, for carrying out various information and propaganda campaigns that are anti-Russian. People earn money there. First of all, even those who are in charge of government bodies and even special services. They are just -so, we are interested in receiving, we will call them conditionally, grants, "Perendzhiev is sure.
    According to him, there is a lobbying factor in the statement of the MI5 head. "To intimidate that Russia, completely all (its competent - ed.) Bodies attacked Great Britain. Great Britain is in terrible danger, but there is MI5, which will protect the British. But you only need, of course, to ensure its good performance - you need to allocate good money," - explained the military political scientist.
    "And here the head of the special services speaks. I want to draw your attention to the fact that this trend is not only British. It can be traced in Europe. In Germany, literally today, too, the head of one of the special services began to frighten everyone, however, not with the Russian threat, but with the threat of IS (international a terrorist organization, banned in the Russian Federation and a number of countries of the world - ed.) that they will now use drones to bomb in all terrorist attacks against Germany.That is, now all the leaders of the (Western) special services, when they are discussing cutting the money allocated to the special services, and here they are, the leaders decided to put a little pressure on the power structures in the public sphere, so that they not only would not have their money cut, but, perhaps, even increased it, ”Perendzhiev suggested.
    He believes that the heads of Western special services themselves are thus engaged in information terrorism. "Through intimidation of its citizens with any threat - terrorist or Russian. The purpose of this information terrorism is precisely lobbying in the interests of its services for the allocation of the necessary budgetary or other funds for their activities. Well, to raise the importance, of course, of them, first of all, in public opinion, "the expert concluded.

    and was silent for a long time, and said ... nothing new. after all, English conservatism is something. it would be better to continue to be silent traditionally. I’d be smart. the only question is, what did he say about sabotage all over Europe? is that a threat?

    The Kremlin’s hand gave MI 5 Russian vodka. Hence verbal diarrhea. Zaharava is right. Shaggy Boris Jnoson fell from the Kremlin tower directly into the chair of the head of the Foreign Ministry of the United Kingdom.

    Today, The Guardian asked to comment on the statement of the Director of the British MI-5, Andrew Parker, that he sees in Russia a threat to British stability.
    But Russia is screaming, hysterical at every corner, that London and Fashton are a threat to the whole world and to ourselves?
