Achtung! Disclosed "world conspiracy" Russian

29
The theme of the world “Russian conspiracy” was revived in foreign media in the spring of 2017, when a scandal broke out with a statement by the Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, who decided to cover up the corruption allegations with “Russian trace” and citing data from the CIA and MI6. True, in the homeland of Mr. Muscat for some reason called stupid. Nevertheless, the list of countries that have found a “Russian trace” is constantly growing. Not to be noted in it means to break away from fashion.


Achtung! Disclosed "world conspiracy" Russian


In May in Malta was found long "hand of the Kremlin." This very hand “intervened” in the political process in a small EU state. The “Russian conspiracy” was revealed with the help of the omnipresent agents of the CIA and MI6.

Local Prime Minister Joseph Muscat was at the center of a corruption scandal. Against the background of the announcement of early parliamentary elections, the mentioned Muscat hurried to report on the “Russian conspiracy” that was growing on the island. The prime minister spoke about the threat of Kremlin interference in the election campaign. As arguments, he referred to the data of the Security Service of Malta, which was warned by colleagues from the CIA and MI6.

According to Muscat, we are talking about the Kremlin’s intention to take revenge on his government in October 2016, when Malta refused ships of the Russian Navy carrier group to refuel in its port, and in May 2017, when the legislation on visa-free entry of citizens of Ukraine into the EU was approved . The last decision, signed by 17 in the European Parliament in May, was largely due to the efforts of Malta, the presidency of the EU Council.

At the local level, Muscat’s conjectures were ridiculed: Simon Buzuttil, the leader of the opposition Nationalist Party of Malta, called the Prime Minister’s statements “absolutely ridiculous and absurd”. According to him, Mr. Muscat made a stupid statement and "completely lost touch with reality."

In June, the “Russian conspiracy” was “uncovered” in Montenegro.

"The hackers associated with Russian intelligence, set their sights on Montenegro at the beginning of this year" - reported FireEye, a cybersecurity company.

The mentioned “FireEye” connects the “Russian attack” with the members of the hacker group “APT 28”. This is supposedly they launched a "malware". Earlier, in the 2016 year, these same people “are supposed to have intervened in the elections in the United States.”

The 2017 summer attack of the year is attributed to the fact that Montenegro “officially joined NATO”. “The expansion of NATO is often viewed by the Russian Federation as a threat to its security, and Montenegro’s application for membership was strongly challenged by Russia and pro-Russian political parties in Montenegro. It is likely that this activity is part of the ongoing attention of APT 28, which focuses on various NATO member states, as well as on this organization itself, ”said Tony Cole, vice president and chief technical officer of FireEye, at the briefing.

Russian phishing attacks allegedly used documents related to European military circles, as well as materials from meetings at the NATO level.

It is also reported that "APT 28" is known by the names "Fancy Bear" and "Sofacy". This group "regularly uses phishing attacks to gain access to systems."

The next “victims” in the summer of 2017 of the year were two countries at the same time: Denmark and Sweden.

The defense ministers of the two countries made a couple and stated: Denmark and Sweden should step up defense cooperation to counter the “growing threat from Russia”, including from “dangerous” fake campaigns and cyber attacks.

Swede Peter Hultqvist and Dane Klaus Hjort Frederiksen said that the Russian hybrid war is “cyber attacks, misinformation and fake news". And such a campaign can give rise to "uncertainty": the peoples under attack "cannot clearly distinguish false news and misinformation from the truth." Security may suffer as a result. The ministers believe that both countries "were subjected to the forms [of this intervention]", and therefore they want to "better protect" their societies from the new scourge.

Earlier, the Stockholm Institute for International Relations accused Russia of using fake news and conducting a “coordinated” disinformation campaign that influenced public opinion and decision making in Sweden. The relevant study stated that Sweden was for the Russians the goal of a "wide range of active measures", including the use of the "army of trolls". Moscow’s main goal allegedly was to “maintain the geostrategic status quo,” forcing Sweden to stay away from NATO’s military alliance.

Talk about the Russian intervention was conducted in Sweden before. For example, in January 2017, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Leuven stated at a national security conference that he could not rule out Russia's attempts to influence the next Swedish elections, which will be held in 2018.

In the hot summer of 2017, curious statements were made about the Russian trace and in the advanced country of world democracy - the USA.

In July, CIA Director Mr. Pompeo сообщил publicly speaking that the Russians did not interfere only in the 2016 presidential election of the year. Not everything went smoothly with Barack Obama either: the Kremlin’s interference ’took place in the 2012 elections of the year. Yes, and before this happened: Muscovites intervened "in previous electoral cycles." “They were doing it for a hell of a long time,” he admitted, carefully avoiding any evidence.

Hot summer was replaced by a truly hot autumn.

In November, 2017, it turned out that the desire of Catalonia for independence was also organized by the Russians. This time, enterprising Moscow hackers have teamed up with the Venezuelan ones.

Official madrid stated: “Intervention” in Catalonia is arranged by “hackers” from Russia and Venezuela.

According to the Government of Spain, the version of the intervention of hackers, "prescribed" in Russia and Venezuela, is "convincing". It was the hackers that caused the “institutional crisis in Catalonia”. There are no specific arguments pointing to the traces of hackers leading from somewhere in the suburbs of Moscow.

Nevertheless, according to government spokesman Iñigo Mendez de Vigo and Defense Minister Maria Dolores de Cossedal, the topic is serious. “This is a serious topic,” said Mendez de Vigo, “because democracy must face the challenges posed by new technologies.” Such technologies, the government spokesman added, “know no boundaries,” and therefore “the problem must be solved at the level of the European Union.”

As for the opinion of the Minister of Defense of Spain, this brave woman said: "The government was convinced: many messages and interventions, arranged through social networks, come from the territory of Russia." Maria Dolores de Cossedal even repeated it twice: “I used a clear wording. From the territory of Russia! "

It is strange that this lady did not stamp her foot.

That same November Theresa May in the UK saidthat the parliamentary committee on intelligence and security will examine the alleged interference of the Russians in the referendum on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU. She also reported that Moscow “is trying to turn information into weapon", Giving the go-ahead to state-run media: they were allegedly ordered to launch" fake stories"And photos corrected by Photoshop to sow discord in the West.

All the examples, as we see, are far from accidental and add up to a hysterical series, shown by the West under the common name “Cold War”.

Western exacerbation on the theme of “Russian footprint” does not take place throughout the year: it happens in winter, in autumn, in summer, in spring.

In the spring of this year, during the presidential race, the Frenchman Monsieur Macron complained about certain “attacks” on his campaign headquarters.

The spring aggravation was especially acute in the Netherlands: there, against the background of the fear of "Russian hackers" in parliamentary elections, they refused to process votes by computer.

Sluggish hacking against the Germans was observed in the summer and autumn of 2017: in Berlin they believed in the Kremlin’s desire to “intervene” in the autumn elections and to conduct a “disinformation” campaign using “cyber attacks”. However, neither the arguments nor the evidence subsequently, Berlin was not found.

In September, 2017 was a huge list of "Russian intervention" led edition USA Today.

Here are data from analysts of the non-profit organization Alliance for Securing Democracy from the German Marshall Foundation, according to which Russia has been interfering in the affairs of "at least 2004 in European and North American countries" since 27. The intervention "ranged from cyber attacks to disinformation campaigns." Russian trace is noted everywhere - from the former Soviet republics to Canada and the United States. As one of the tools of Russian propagandists is called "Twitter." Through him, the people of Moscow “spread messages useful for the Kremlin.”

Malta, Spain, Montenegro, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, USA, Canada ... Who's next?

Soon there will be no place on the political map of the world, which the experts from non-profit organizations, CIA and MI6 would not have stuck with red flags. Around the Russians.

"The World Conspiracy" Kremlin opened. Trump is a Kremlin agent. Obama is also an agent of the Kremlin. Apparently, the German chancellor also serves Putin. Well, about Catalonia in Madrid, it is said that with her the Russians will do the same thing, that with the Crimea they “annex”.

    Malta, Spain, Montenegro, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, USA, Canada ...

    Malta especially smiled. I don’t seem to know geography well, but I had to strain to find on the map. Now, if in Europe and the United States babies cry at night, the sun is covered with clouds, and the birds are crap on their heads, then you should not refer to the pattern, because there is only one reason, and they know about it for sure - Russian intervention.

        Formula 1 Honorary President Bernie Ecclestone called for making the president of Russia Vladimir Putin, the head of all Europe. A statement was made during the interview. Financial Times.
        Ecclestone noted that of all politicians, it is Putin who is most worthy to be the leader of Europe, because, unlike others, he always does what he says. Also, the former head of Formula 1 called the Russian leader a "first-class man." "The guy who should run Europe, who impressed me the most, is Putin. The man who says that he will do something and does it, "said Bernie Ecclestone. He added that he met face to face with the Russian president at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. According to Ecclestone, the head of state brought him to death the most positive impression. "

          Of course, I am against it, he, in principle, is not nice to me, and I consider him the third leader in terms of usefulness of the XNUMXth century Russia (he still found it). But the fact that this bald hmyr keeps his word is yes. Not always, but in foreign policy it is.

    For us Russians, it’s quite obvious that all the hype surrounding the “Kremlin hands” is bullshit, from the first word to the last.
    But this nonsense is duplicated and widened.
    It is intended for "domestic consumption".
    And the ordinary citizen of Europe, and the USA, doesn’t even have the obvious idea - why the Kremlin "interferes in the elections" from time to time or what else they accuse us of, and instead of improving our attitude to ourselves, we get sanctions, sanctions, sanctions .
    This is what DB should be. (see S. Lavrova) to believe in such creativity of mentally retarded people.

    But they believe.
    Like, for example, that the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine.

    Colleagues, for some reason, the most developed and civilized countries do not accept us. And among our friends are those who officially recognized Crimea - Venezuela, Nicaragua, and sowing. Korea, Cuba, Syria, Afghanistan. It is hard to be proud of such friends - these are the countries of the third world, standing at the bottom of the chain of progress. Perhaps the idea is that we are doing something wrong if all of us do not like us right? I draw analogies with the school - each of us had at least one such classmate who was not loved, respected and not accepted into the team. Remember the personal qualities and behavior of such "rogue" ...

      Do not confuse God's gift with fried eggs. No one likes strong competitors. Russia, in essence, can become a very strong competitor in the development of society, an alternative to a modern consumer society. That is why the ideologists of the so-called “civilized” countries of yours are trying to destroy developing Russia. After all, they were completely satisfied with Russia since the time of Yeltsin. So you suggest that we return to those times, and surrender to the hands of the State Department, who led all the endeavors in the Kremlin? Especially in the real world, Europe does not have its own political line; the hegemon of their society is one USA. And all who do not lie under the United States are enemies. That is why the countries you have listed that do not want to live by the rules of a consumer society are the enemies of this world, the world of "civilized" countries, i.e. countries playing by US rules.

        Correctly said, I can only add: there is a war started by America in 86 and this is a big mistake made by the USA on the collapse of the USSR, if they didn’t do this, they could continue to rob the world, but now Russia is stopping it and they don’t like it, we can say that they themselves are to blame for their troubles.

    One would like to say that they are engaged in nonsense, but this is not at all true, because millions of people in different countries believe this. Goebbels' technique, built on a colossal lie, works, and how effective it is! The question is different how to deal with this, with the countless shaft of absurd accusations against our country? If we make excuses, it will be even worse. We cannot wage an information war. Can create a ministry of propaganda? But this name is already tarnished. One thing is clear - our country does not know how to deal with all this, and oceans of lies are already piling up against us, and we are only sluggishly resisting. It's a shame, painful and very bitter.

      The most terrible enemy for the USA and the Western world is TIME, during the World Wide Internet it is more and more difficult for them to dust their brains and people are gradually starting to sober up and the farther the more difficult it is to hang noodles. Now there is no need to rush, they will strangle themselves (like cockroaches in a bank)

      Why propaganda, the Ministry of Truth!
      Seriously, it seems to me unimportant: they always treated us like that, just were afraid to say it.
      It is much more important to identify and neutralize enemies within the country, and all this senile hype can contribute to this. Yes, it’s already contributing: a lot of people lit up from doggies to Raikin from Makarevich to Yasin

    Do not be sad, comrade, and do not be discouraged - this is a sin. Now the FSA is thickening the world of consciousness over the world, but there are gaps in this trouble and they are expanding. The thunder they blab about the “Russian threat” and other nonsense, the faster it will burst (if only they would not untie the 3rd MV, but we can deal with the LANs). The more piled up, the worse remorse will be.
    people who believed in this nonsense. And not all people there are such simpletons, as they believe in their propaganda and backstage centers of the West. Morning will come and everything must be done so that it comes as soon as possible. The main thing for Russia is to overcome the hassle of liberal capitalism. hi
