Canadian Navy officer spying on Russia to be condemned in secret

Canadian Navy officer spying on Russia to be condemned in secret

Canada has banned the publication of a lawsuit against naval officer Jeffrey Delile, who was accused of spying for the Russian Federation. The trial of a forty-year-old military man, taken red-handed at the beginning of 2012, began a few days ago. An unnamed source close to the investigation reports that the amount of classified information that the spy gave to Moscow can be compared with the full Wikileaks archive. This transmits "".

According to the Wall Street Journal, the materials that Delile declassified dealt mainly with the Five Eyes system, an agreement concluded between the intelligence services of Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, New Zealand and Australia.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Canadian officials are trying to prevent a scandal and very much hope that the incident will not prevent further cooperation with foreign intelligence agencies. But, as indicated by a source from the US government, the White House is very worried about the data leak.

According to this source, recently, in early March, in New Zealand, a meeting of the participants of the "Five Eyes" was held, initiated just by a spy scandal in Canada. The scouts discussed actions that could prevent similar leaks in the future.

Recall that Jeffrey Delail was charged with violating the Canadian law on information security. Delisle was a lieutenant fleet and special services officer. He carried out activities based on Trinity, which is the "heart" of intelligence and naval communications operations center in Halifax.

The investigation has put forward a version that Delile since July 2007, passed the secret information to the Russian special services. Now the officer faces from 5 years of imprisonment to life imprisonment.

Following the arrest of Delilah, four members of the Russian embassy were expelled from Canada. Attache Konstantin Kolpakov and lieutenant colonel Dmitry Fedorchatchenko, assistant military attache, went to their native shores. He, according to the former head of Canadian counterintelligence O'Brien, worked for the GRU. There are two more among the deported Russians: technical employees Tatyana Steklova and Mikhail Nikiforov.

A little later, two more employees of the Russian embassy and consulate went to Russia. However, Canada has made a statement that this shipment is not related to the spy scandal.

        But why? At least we know that we also have intelligence. And punctures happen everywhere, not without it.

        Canadian Navy officer Jeffrey Paul Delaille has provided Russia with so much classified data that can be compared with the amount of leaks through WikiLeaks, the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal reported, citing informed sources in the intelligence services.

        According to the newspaper, the leak of classified information has irritated the American special services due to the fact that Canadians are poorly guarded secrets concerning not only themselves, but also allies, including the United States, Great Britain and other countries. Therefore, Delisle's act caused "a serious rift between American and Canadian intelligence officials."

        The cost of military intelligence is the main thing that our scouts would not disclose. But in general it’s nice that our intelligence does its quiet but necessary thing

          The astonishing insight of the former head of the Canadian counterintelligence - the assistant military attache worked for the GRU .... I would be very surprised if he did NOT work for the GRU.
          So it pulls to ask this pro and why the hell then do military attaches are needed?!?

      This is not a trend, I’m sending and catching quite often, you yourself understand that in the majority all this goes without publicity. But the latest high-profile news is related to the desire to intimidate the western population with bloodthirsty Russia, which is trying to threaten and harm everyone.

        Russia is the main enemy of NATO !!! Right now they will procrastinate this topic for a long time !! Or maybe it’s all simpler - he’s not a spy - and so they found a scapegoat.
        And they will poke Russia with and without - like, we are starting a cold war and an arms race, we are also protecting Arabs !!! The aggressor is solid in general! And most importantly - that people over the hill in all this nonsense will be happy to believe!
        You might think that the Americans are not spying on our territory. They assure us that dozens of our residents are caught - I watched a program on this topic - Shock Force or Military Affairs - I don’t remember exactly - it just doesn’t make much publicity - so, quietly peacefully, a man died from a heart attack - what is it? wassat laughing So our intelligence does not sleep and chews its bread for nothing - this is a fact!

    Well done our scouts! In spite of everything, they quietly work for themselves and do not advertise their work anywhere. No wonder they eat their bread.

    I can’t believe that in Russia there were no such cases. Why, then, are they not put on public display in our country?
