Russian spies: now in every European home

Along with other attributes of the Cold War, cloaks and daggers are again in fashion. 100-year anniversary of the Cheka coincided with so many reports from the invisible front, that you inevitably think about it - is it not your line that runs under your windows?

The scandal surrounding the arrest of Norwegian pensioner Frode Berg is growing. He is accused of espionage against the Russian Federation. There are no details in connection with the secrecy of the case, but it is likely that we are talking about naval espionage in the border areas of the Russian north. However, this is on our side.

On the other, in neighboring Finland, passions are also boiling. Local media have published secret data, according to which, the military of NATO conduct reconnaissance and monitor the movement of Russian troops in the Western Military District. The authorities reacted very nervously to the article, accusing journalists of disclosing state secrets.

    To understand how espionage was conducted against the SOVIET UNION, and today they are conducting espionage against RUSSIA, it is very significant to recall the famous and today no longer secret exchange of Colonel ABEL for Powers. That's only rarely when they remember how many actually spies and those who worked off foreign fees were exchanged for one Colonel ABEL.
    The ratio of spies and our scouts is about the same today. Here are just those who seem to be citizens of RUSSIA, while working out import fees for espionage, today there are much more. Some do not hesitate to shine on Russian television on various shows.

      I agree. But where is the proposal? Will we clap our hands, Uncle Vasya, or shoot traitors?
      Whose side are you on?

    How long does the Russian state exist and almost as long as intelligence and counterintelligence exist.
    Whatever they are called: Robbery Order, Priobrazhensky, Temporary Bureau, Separate Gendarmes Corps, Cheka, OGPU, NKVD, NKGB, KGB or FSB, the essence remains the same: PROTECTION OF THE INTERESTS OF THE STATE.
    If NATO intelligence ceased to be interested in us, I would be worried: 1) we lost our sovereignty and national interests 2) Anal seized power (he can’t legally win), but let them be interested. We have someone to catch Varvara by the nose.
    By the way, I was always interested in: why exactly Varvara, and not Glasha, or something else?
