British media report GRU scouts off the coast of Ireland


Russian intelligence agencies are conducting active reconnaissance off the coast of Ireland. There, they search underwater for fiber optic cables connecting the United States to Britain and other European countries.


So say the journalists of the British newspaper The Times.

The publication suggests that employees of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation may engage in this activity. Recently, it was this Russian special service that enjoys high media popularity in the Western media, especially in the British.

According to journalists, our scouts are looking for weaknesses in submarine cables and studying the infrastructure of the Dublin port.

Commenting on the version of the British media, retired FSB major general Alexander Mikhailov calls them ordinary manifestations of espionage and Russophobia. He believes that the UK is the champion in creating such fake Newsfollowed by the United States and Scandinavian countries.

According to a retired FSB general, tracking fiber optic cables does not make sense, since a significant part of the data is transmitted wirelessly today. Therefore, in the statements of the British media, Mikhailov believes, there are more fantasies than realities.

        Main-backup satellites (2-3) are most likely known. Piu-Piu them and there is no space connection.
        And the cable at the bottom of the ocean is a much more reliable communication channel. And to find it, of course, is necessary.

          Generally necessary. In order to cut off the connection with high traffic in the event of hostilities. Satellites will be the first to disappear by idea. Then you need to cut the cables. Well, let them try to transfer the necessary data volumes to the morse users.

    Maybe most of the information is transmitted via satellites. That's just an opportunity, there is already a weapon capable of shooting down satellites, jamming them, and if you want everything at once, then a high-altitude nuclear explosion, you can even over your territory, and that’s all, wireless information is just zilch.

      Nothing like this. Satellite communications are only good in remote and inaccessible areas. Most of the information in the world over long distances is transmitted via optical fiber. That's just bad luck, information from fiber optic cables cannot be removed without damaging them. (unlike ordinary ones, in which, when an electric signal passes, electromagnetic fields arise through which information can be read.) Moreover, even one fiber optic cable transmits such a quantity of information (some of which is generally encoded, and some are ordinary digital garbage, which does not represent informational value), for the analysis of which, it will take years, huge computer capacities and data centers .. In the West they make it easier. Since almost the entire Internet is controlled by Western companies, their intelligence agencies work directly with providers. Which provide Western intelligence services with access to servers and the necessary information on clients that interests them.

        Mixed in a bunch of labor and lies.
        Satellite communications are encrypted using the same algorithms as cable (including fiber optic).
        In an emergency, just cut off the communication channel. There is not enough time to decrypt.
        Our providers also "click" provide data on clients to our Russian special services, do not provide foreign ones.
        Foreign providers also "click" provide data to their special services, ours do not provide.
        It is believed that the communication channels of the NATO Ministries of Defense and Headquarters do not use "civilian communication channels", but this is not accurate.

      If they are looking for it, then solely for the purpose of quickly disabling them, in the case of a big mess of course. In a war, chopping off communication channels is the first thing. It is clear that there are many of these channels, they won’t cut everything off, but still. And in general, by and large, what they wanted. They declared Russia the main villain, the first world evil, and they think that Russian Ivan, looking at this, will calmly lie on the stove? They love honey, let them love chills. Fear the West and have more tantrum. laughing

    Russian intelligence agencies are conducting active reconnaissance off the coast of Ireland. There, they search underwater for fiber optic cables connecting the United States to Britain and other European countries.

    Heh, maybe they are just looking for treasure in shipwrecks?
    And how do they swim with a banner that says that they are Russian intelligence agents from the GRU, probably the call signs are indicated, the mobile number and home address with the keys to the apartment where the money is? what fellow lol

    And in the Thames have not yet been observed? Or maybe the fog is in the way and the water is dirty? Ours has nothing more to do than look for cables, and then gnaw at our teeth to make it safer.
