"Betrayed by the brotherhood of special forces": a former serviceman was arrested in the USA on suspicion of working for Russian intelligence

30

In the US state of Virginia, the US arrested a former special forces soldier. The state district court issued a warrant in the name of a man named Peter Debbins. US intelligence agencies believe Debbins worked for Russian intelligence for several years.


Information about the arrest of a former US Army Special Forces soldier has been confirmed by the United States Department of Justice.

The materials report that "Debbins broke the US serviceman's oath, betrayed the Special Forces fraternity and endangered American security."

During the preliminary court hearing, it was stated that Peter Debbins had visited the Russian Federation for 15 years (in different years) (from 1996 to 2011) and acted in conjunction with representatives of the Russian intelligence. It is alleged that in the Russian Federation, Debbins was assigned an operational pseudonym, and the American special forces soldier (at that time he was in the status of a career American military man) signed a document on his readiness to serve in the interests of the Russian Federation.

According to the American investigation, Debbins transferred materials about the unit in which he served, including the personal data of his colleagues, to Russian intelligence, and tried to recruit them in the interests of Russian intelligence.

Now the former special forces soldier in the United States faces a long (if not huge) sentence for high treason.

At the same time, the United States has not yet answered the question for what reasons a special forces soldier was generally released by the States for travel to the Russian Federation.

            "Betrayed by the brotherhood of special forces": a former serviceman was arrested in the USA on suspicion of working for Russian intelligence

            The message becomes more detailed:

            The former Army Green Beret, based in northern Virginia, was arrested Friday on charges of divulging military secrets about his unit's activities in the former Soviet republics during more than a decade of contacts with Russian intelligence.
            According to the indictment released after his arrest, 45-year-old Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins told Russian intelligence that he considers himself a "son of Russia"
            "Debbins believed that the United States was too dominant in the world and needed to be reduced in size," prosecutors argued.
            The indictment also states that Debbins was motivated in part by resentment over his military career, as well as a desire to establish business contacts in Russia.
            According to the prosecutor's office, he was engaged in espionage activities from 1996 to 2011.

            According to the indictment, Debbins's mother was born in the Soviet Union, and Debbins himself met his wife in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, where they got married in 1997. Debbins of Gainesville met periodically with Russian intelligence officials from 1996, when he was a ROTC student at the University of Minnesota, to 2011. According to the prosecutor's office, back in 1997, after he signed a statement stating that he wanted to serve Russia, Russian intelligence officers assigned him a code name - Ikar Lesnikov.
            Debbins received a nominal payment for his information, although he initially refused the money. According to the indictment, at one of his meetings with Russian intelligence, he accepted a bottle of cognac and a Russian military uniform as payment.

    Russian intelligence encroached on the most sacred thing - the US special forces. For 15 years, the American allegedly collaborated with Russian intelligence, traveled to Russia several times, even recruited his own people, gave out terrible American "secrets" (data on his unit?), But the American special services were on the alert ... Under the American standard, compromise someone suitable, but under the work of an agent of the special services of Russia does not pull. And not the Ukrainian SBU or GUR accidentally verbanul it?

      Why are you belittling the Russian special services !?
      For cheap (for "there is no money, but you hold on ...") to recruit a bourgeois specialist; so that he, on a starvation ration (because of the same), pulled as much as 15-ku - it must be able to !!!

        Nobody belittles them, but words are alarming.
        According to American investigation,
        , which indirectly testify that there is no clear evidence of the work of this special forces for our special services. I think that this is just another farce, because the rank of the commandos is too low for our station in the USA to work for him.

    The brotherhood ... the fellowship of the ring ..., there are min four who visited the eye of Sauron (from 1996 to 2011). Peter Debbins, who for 15 years had the callsign FRODO, with impunity and impudently sneered as he wanted, having retired at the same time (possibly). There is no excuse for you ... and you were found, at a very convenient time for all sorts of high-ranking players. Now we are waiting for the return of the King ... no less belay
