Former KGB officer: the expulsion of Russian diplomats will not disrupt intelligence work

15
If there are intelligence officers among Russian diplomats, their expulsion from Western countries will not be able to disrupt its effective work, RIA News opinion of the KGB veteran, writer Mikhail Lyubimov.




In 1965, Lyubimov was declared persona non grata and expelled from the UK.

It will turn out, this business is gainful,
he said.

An ex-intelligence officer recalled that in 1971, "Great Britain sent 105 Soviet diplomats, including the foreign intelligence officers of the KGB of the USSR and the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Soviet General Staff."

Of course, the blow to our intelligence was strong, but we continued to provide information to the authorities. And the instance was satisfied. Information damage was small,
he said.

In 1967-1969, Mikhail Lyubimov worked in Denmark as deputy resident and first secretary of the embassy. In 1974, he was appointed deputy head of the third (Anglo-Scandinavian) department of the PGU KGB. He headed the organization of work against the United Kingdom.

Earlier, a number of EU countries, as well as the USA, Canada and Ukraine, decided to expel Russian diplomats in connection with the incident in Salisbury. The head of the British Foreign Ministry, Boris Johnson, in this regard, noted that the measures declared by the Western allies against the Russian Federation are "the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers to stories».

    Fighting Russian intelligence by sending diplomats is the same as hunting a bear with rubber bandages

      By the way, Ireland also joined this "flash mob" by sending ONE of our diplomats.
      And not all of this is done to combat our intelligence, but in the general trend of ISOLATION of Russia ..

          Here I am talking about the same thing, there used to be over-the-air communications and a morse, and now with developed communications and such a percentage of integration into the economies of other countries, business ties, and this is a vast network of illegal immigrants. Let them think that we are barbarians, uncouth, uneducated, forever drunk.

      The old stupidity of our powers that be is to repaint defeats in victories. After all, the majority of leading states were given on the forehead, the state representatives were thrown out, and here some do not understand what is happening. Raise the issue of competence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Intelligence of the Russian Federation, in case of such failures. If a slander about poisoning, so quickly provide evidence of innocence ... And then a fool is lounging in the Russian media and shouting about his unwavering, if not stupid ... Why over the past 10 years, the Russian state has become an outcast for the whole world, and who is responsible for this politics and its results, that’s where the main problem is ... Why is Kitty not outcast, but the RF and DPRK are the most recent outcasts ...

    Never a single country has sent "lighted" scouts. They were taken under the hood and tracked every step. But the "dark horses", on which there was no specific data, but there were suspicions, were sent first of all. So my father, a retired KGB colonel of the USSR, explained this to me.

    From Kiev. for example, they send-send Russian diplomats, and Kremlin agents only arrive. Even among the heroes of Ukraine through one separatists.
    The Anglo-Saxons should take into account the Ukrainian experience, otherwise you can see that the blond-haired Johnson will overtake ...
