Military Review

Where are you, Holmes of the XXI century?

The Case of Violin and the subsequent typhoon of information attacks clearly demonstrated that the Russian special services were completely unprepared for the information war with sophisticated Western special services. It is Western experts who fouled up the case of Skrypal and still exaggerate it in the world's leading media. Ours each time go into the response mode (which in itself is no longer a winning position), and when they react (as it was with the “sweet couple” interview with Margarita Simonyan), it turns out so clumsily and unconvincingly that it would be better for them did at all.


All this says only one thing: our “knights of cloak and dagger” are completely unable to work in a public space. In fact, for this purpose, each more or less serious agency has long been creating special information-ideological apparatuses: press services headed by press secretaries. Their bright (or not) heads generate new concepts and ideas, they also voice the opinions of the authorities. Some press secretaries, such as Maria Zakharova or Dmitry Peskov, eventually reach certain heights in their difficult profession. Even the “Nightingale of the General Staff” Konashenkov, after a series of crushing aphorisms, learned to work with the audience in the public sphere as well.

Another thing is the SVR and the GRU (or the GU General Staff). It was they who were in the center of the scandal, the British accuse the employees of these services. And in response - silence. But silence is also impossible. Silence is a sign of agreement with the accusations, and this is unacceptable in principle ...

As a result, comes to insanity. In public space, the opinion and point of view of the “brain trusts” of these structures are already voiced by those who are not caught - the same Maria Zakharova, Peskov himself, a military journalist and expert (and formerly a cadre officer of the SVR) Yevgeny Krutikov, political scientist Gevorg Mirzayan, a columnist for the “Vzglyad »Pyotr Akopov and a whole chain of other journalists and experts.

After another justifying article for the sins of others, Krutikov himself once in the hearts suggested in the press service of the SVR to place an answering machine, which will be answered to all calls by me: “The press service of the SVR does not comment on this.” The effect would be exactly the same, but what a savings on the salary of the device!

The inability to work in public space is only one facet of a whole host of problems that Scripal's scandalous case has highlighted. Here is the inability to correctly be legendary (so that various “useful idiots” like Insider and Bellingcat, vigorously serving the interests of their Western curators), and the complete disregard for the ancient espionage art of “changing the face during the play” and the absence of serious conspiracy ( including in the Internet space), and much more.

At one time, the author of these lines at the “dawn of a foggy journalistic youth”, together with the operatives of the MUR, tracked down at the stations of the capital of the Georgian pickpockets. Even then, he was pleasantly surprised how the capital syskari almost changed their appearance on the run, so that the thieves would not copy them ahead of time. One person went to the station toilet and another one went out. He looked into a stall for needy, a portly uncle in a cashmere coat, and a bumgish, limping old man came out with a beard and a beard. And then the old man turned into a Georgian with a cap-airfield on his head ... At these moments I immediately remembered Conan Doyle with his creative Sherlock Holmes and his ability to reincarnate in seconds. It would seem, what's the problem? Do the same, and no camera will shoot you - neither in Salisbury, nor at the airport. What are you guys, classics, or something, did not read? Well, take “Uncle Sherlock” in the nearest library and combine 19 century with 21 for health ...

Where are you, Holmes of the XXI century?


For our special services, a new era is coming. Build into it is not easy. They now need truly revolutionary changes. A complete reboot should occur, primarily in the current ideological paradigm. But there is no other way out. As comrade Stalin once said, "either we will catch up with the West, or they will crush us."

Now the situation is mirror. While we are under pressure. What are we going to do: still fight back or catch up in Stalin? The question is open ...

    Totally agree.
    Ready to believe in any the little bit plausible explanation of the official authorities about Boshirov, Petrov, but they don’t say ANYTHING at all!

    And Peskov's amazing answers like: "We know just what they said .... about themselves in an interview"," We will check the information about Chepiga's rewarding ", are generally dismayed.

    Who will believe it? Does the country's highest executive power know about citizens only what they say about themselves ?.

    And even if 1% of what the Belingkots got up is true (they have a passport database in their hands, an elite series of passports in the district with the GRU, etc.), then there should be a personnel reaction ....

      What amazing nonsense you can’t read sometimes, and moreover, on a white day, and not looking at night! Well, let's start with the fact that the knights of the cloak and dagger in public space should not work at all for that, they both wear a cloak and a dagger! I would like to ask a respected but incompetent author - but what should I react to? And what a reaction in general should be to unsubstantiated delirium while proving that they are not going to do anything! Does the author actually know what the presumption of innocence is ?! Well, if not, what is the question - that is the answer! And I also want to remind the source about the secret events - we chose Trump! Forgotten, or what ?! Well, I laughed heartily at how the author at the dawn of his journalistic youth tracked down Georgian pickpockets with operas! I have no doubt that the very operatives with whom he was engaged in personal investigation activities also laughed heartily at the author! So, while these operas were running about toilets and changing clothes, these pickpockets probably ransacked the floor of the station and left with a laugh! To take a good pickpocket red-handed, they sometimes go after him all day and often not alone, sometimes leading him from his place of residence! So, comrade journalist. Opera works in groups of 3 - 4 people (rarely more) and by numbers. The first goes directly to the "working" thief, watching his hands while never looking up. In order not to become familiar after a while, it is changed by the second opera, becoming the first, etc. The others follow him. Aerobatics is considered to be red-handed detention when the thief left after he worked, i.e. could theoretically take advantage of the kidnapped ... a thief who has triggered usually transfers the stolen immediately to a partner and he, in turn, can also transfer it further! By the way, the terpile must be "delayed" laughing and deliver to the department. This is sometimes the most difficult thing !!!!! Well, and you fellow journalist when you were in your journalistic youth just led by the nose!))) I don’t know what was the reason? Maybe the guys were just in a good mood, or maybe you’re tired of them worse than the bitter radish!

        but to that actually respond then ?! And what kind of reaction should there be to unproven nonsense

        To react, to the campaign of slander and lies about poisoning, which inflicts tremendous damage to Russia's reputation.
        Present through state journalists- Civil Petrova and Boshirova in all details, and bring down, shame the west. Why is that complicated? But this is not done. Lost civilian friends. Silence. So ....

    I do not agree. In public space there are hordes of people living from scandal to scandal. And any reaction to their any statements for them is like water for carrots in the garden. In football, as far as I know, it’s customary not to react to all kinds of assholes running around the field ... And that’s right.

      If you create a Ministry of Propaganda, then there should be your own state-owned media! And so who will lead the propaganda !? Free journalists? Or those who receive foreign grants? If the media will function officially, then the source of funding? If from advertising, then what is the state? And the official structure must carry some kind of ideology. What will the state structure call and show? Propagate an ascetic lifestyle and gratuitous work? Well, the church has always dealt with this! Transfer all media to religion?

        Actually, if you haven't noticed, in Russia most of the leading media outlets (especially television) are either quite officially state-owned, or are in fact so. There are only a few "free" media left, but they are tightly settled on Western funding. The era of free and objective journalism in Russia has passed 10 years ago, around 2008-2010 ...

        Well, if you don’t see official propaganda on ORT, for example, well, I’m just sorry for you ...

      In fact, there should always be plans for failure, and not one. This applies both to our special services and to the Moscow Region. If our planes fly in Syria and our PMCs are present there, then all versions of the development of the situation should be worked out. It turns out that we begin to react only after a slap in the face! We love to yell that we know how to fight better than anyone and can repeat! But for some reason, they constantly tut Russia! At least in economics, even in politics, even in military affairs! We have not yet answered in any direction! There is no breakthrough in economics, politics, or military affairs! But specialists yell about cut paper and diapers of the American military. But really, they’ve never been able to embed these diapers. Yes, you just don’t know how many times diapers have gotten too tough! Maybe. But we are always informed when Russia gets its teeth. And who can fight better than anyone else? Aw! When and whom did Russia bomb, against whom did it impose sanctions? How many military bases did Russia have after the 90s, and how many diapers did it have? What territories has Russia overcome in diapers? But the diapers really squeezed Ukraine from Russia! And what is Russia doing? Ukraine really hammer LDNR. What is Russia doing? What is Israel doing in a similar situation? The actions of large Russia and small Israel are diametrically opposed! Who represents shelling Israel without an answer? But in LDNR it’s like Good Morning! The Israelis even have an unmanned autodrone automatically responding with fire to a sniper or grenade thrower shot. In LDNR, constant moans about constant shelling from the outskirts. Does this indicate the power of the Russian army and its economy? This speaks of the shame of the Russian army and its economy! Russia stupidly cannot (or does not want) to pinpoint coordinates. Russia is stupidly afraid to respond to shelling from the outskirts. Excuse me But Russia is trembling to the point of fearing the West! Otherwise, Russia would not surrender Ukraine. Or would give a decent response to her provocations. Just like in Syria. And I wouldn’t surrender Libya. Who doesn’t infuriate the toothlessness of Russia !? But suck to death? Well, who sucked to death?

    Another thing is the SVR and the GRU (or the GU General Staff). It was they who were in the center of the scandal, the British accuse the employees of these services. And in response - silence. But silence is also impossible. Silence is a sign of agreement with the accusations, and this is unacceptable in principle ...

    This statement of the author shows that PR is important to him, and not the actions of the special services themselves, the results of which can be known only to a narrow circle of people. That is why giving bread to journalists and other pseudo-analysts is not in the tradition of these organizations.
    I believe that it is the chosen position that will save in the future many security officers who may be in critical situations, and what will be done to save them should remain in deep secrecy. As for the two people who allegedly poisoned Skripal, I’m sure that nobody had to be sent from Russia to eliminate him - any smart person understands that in England, among the many tens of thousands of people who moved there for permanent residence, there are those who will do it more professionally according to local specifics.
    No "new era" is coming - everything will be the same as before.

From my own, unprofessional, of course, point of view, I can say that I got drunk with their salaries and lost their professional skills seriously.

        Firstly, judging by the information that was revealed, the very fact of the actions of these persons from the special services is "below the plinth," as they say. From my own, unprofessional, of course, point of view, I can say that I got drunk with their salaries and lost their professional skills seriously.

        Are you 100% sure that they were GRU officers? Have you ever seen them in the eyes of at least one?

        Secondly, the big question is the appropriateness of such an action in general. Comrade Skripal, if it was necessary to eliminate

        There still hangs around Gordievsky, who is alive, and who caused damage to the USSR many times more than Skripal. So think for yourself why this prisoner was to kill?

          Our trouble is that we have grown by "12 Moments of Spring". And when you start flipping documents, our special services have always been dishonored, especially read about the 20-30 years, this is generally a shame. And how he conveyed atomic secrets, the scientist, except for the idiots of our agents, did not characterize. So these are not the limit.

            This is a lie, because it was then that new principles of reconnaissance were only being laid, and of course there were mistakes. As for the "successes" of foreign special services, their agents were caught all over the world, and therefore we cannot be particularly blamed for anything. Well, unless you fantasize something original ...

            And what could this scientist know about the counterintelligence regime around the atomic project? About the possibilities of our residents to at least move around the United States? He didn’t know a damn thing, so he carried nonsense, declaring such.

    Well, Sergei, you give! Compare MUR operatives with military intelligence! .. This is definitely a new approach! And for clarity, is it correct to compare a bicycle with a motorcycle? Of course, some similar methods are used by both, but the ends determine the means! Is military intelligence hunting for crooks, or for military secrets of the enemy? Can a swindler afford the same costs of preserving himself and his treasures as the state does to preserve its secrets? Do you feel the difference in scale? But in London, apparently, no longer! As they saw it from Rezun, they remain at the same level! Take my word for it, if our MTRs do not raise doubts about their professionalism in anyone in the world, and this is, by the way, one of the divisions of the same one that is no longer the GRU, then why did you decide that the agents have forgotten how to work? Or do you, too, believe the nonsense of the hideously different yellow media, like vomiting cats? London is just not hesitating, and with all its verbal diarrhea strives to fill up two or even three birds with one stone - bathe in shit and undermine trust (like you, for example) in the Russian Federation, impose its rotten world on this wave " the truth ", and the main thing is to force Russian officials who are in the subject to blab out! A wave of disinformation, this is also a special operation, not a bazaar of "breeders" on the arrow! You yourself must understand that under the conditions of a special operation, the Russian proverb that the ability to remain silent is not an abstract allegory! But the ability to keep silent about our special services and the PR people who cover them, has already given a lot of reasons to neigh over the clumsy and stupidity of Western producers of information ducks, that the conclusion is unambiguous - they are furious and sculpt such a cheap thing only because they do not know the real situation, they understand it perfectly but completely powerless to change something!

    What are you talking about, what Holmes, there are all Lestrades. Holmes is a piece product, assuming at least the presence of a brain and the ability to use it. And what century is in the yard, it does not play any role, the creative approach does not depend on the date and time of the year. It is difficult for such people under any power, they have an individual approach to any event, and in the first place is truth and the ability to get to the bottom of the truth. The Lestrades, unlike them, live according to the principle, what you please, and any event is considered in light: what Ivan Ivanovich will say and the solution of any issue is adjusted to the opinion of the authorities, and often changing it, depending on the line of the "party" Look at our State Duma , Poklonskaya alone remained to sit when the "teachers" from the striped Senate entered.

    A burly uncle in a cashmere coat peered into the booth as needed, and a bummy limping old man in a beard and a hat came out.

    In these minutes, I immediately remembered Conan Doyle with his creative Sherlock Holmes and the ability of the latter to transform in a matter of seconds. It would seem, what is the problem?

    No. Will not help. The problem is "this" ...

    - It was ordered to seize a person who leaves the public toilet, fastening his fly on the go.

    It seems to me that Sergei Kasaurov, just like the Russian special services, is making a serious mistake in thinking. We live in a transparent world. It will not be possible to change clothes in a public restroom and hope that it will go unnoticed, I am sure that when looking at surveillance cameras "S. Holmes" will be very surprised when he sees a "bummy old man" who literally materialized in a public restroom and wonders where "the burly uncle has disappeared in cashmere coat ". I will not disclose the secret that in some cases a computer program acts as "Sh. Holmes", which will not even be surprised. I insist on the opinion that the author, like the Russian special services, still live in the 90s, at most in the mid 00s.

    It will not work in Stalin's style - firstly, among the political class there is no person equal to him, and secondly, accordingly, there are no executors in the state apparatus who would realize his ideas! Those who are (as Zheglov told Smoked through the lips of Vysotsky) are preoccupied with others - eat deliciously, sleep sweetly ..., children abroad - warm the place for themselves! Well, in general, you are in the know ... sad

    Intelligence has nothing to do with it. We are used to viewing the public field via TV and the Internet. And interesting things happen here. When foreign political scientists advocate freedom of speech, why
    our leaders will not offer discussion of problems on the platforms of Ukraine, Europe, America. I think the opponents will immediately shut up. In America, many of our tourists are so dirty that the FBI can easily change the article for espionage, the article on smuggling, and even on drugs. Unfortunately, crime was not determined by many parameters.

    Why not the secret service to make excuses. I’m used to discuss everything through the prism of modern cinema and television shows, this is not done in life, someone who even represents the work of intelligence in the slightest bit will agree with me - the main thing is silence and complete neutrality to everything that happens. And this hysteria on TV is specially arranged, it is a pity that many commentators here do not understand this, and the author also.

    Here they also described: a sweet couple inherited. And with us.
    And switching attention to other sweet couples 100% does not help.

    Bottom line: you just have to lie less.
    Example: they lied about doping, nodded at others, while they themselves quietly agreed with the Western commissions, thanked for the lessons, and recently quietly admitted violations, as it were, of "private individuals" without mentioning the state.

    The same for Yukos - they released Khodorkovsky, they lost the courts, we pay quietly.
    It seems to be something like this.

      You are wrong - it is the British who switch to other "real poisoners" of Skripal:
      Disclosed the real name of the third "poisoner" Skripal
      British investigation team Bellingcat claims to have discovered the real name of a third person suspected of involvement in the poisoning of former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in British Salisbury in 2018. According to her, Sergey Fedotov is a GRU employee Denis Sergeev.
