MI5 chief: UK's biggest problem comes from Russian intelligence

53

The head of the British intelligence service MI5 (counterintelligence structure) Ken McCalen made a statement about which country's intelligence is causing the UK the greatest problems.


According to McCalen, if we talk about "present time", it is "Russian intelligence."

Ken McCalen:

It is Russian intelligence that brings the most problems to the UK. This is if we talk about the state of affairs for October 2020.

At the same time, the head of MI5 added that if we talk about the future, then China will pose the greatest threat to the United Kingdom.

McCalen:

In this regard, he will have the greatest opportunities, which for us will grow into the biggest problems.

The head of British counterintelligence was asked what problems Russia is causing Britain today.

According to him, this is not only espionage and theft of state secrets, but also "attempted murders":

Look at the case of Navalny's poisoning. This is a threat to democracy, economy, infrastructure - a big threat in many areas.

At the same time, Mr. McCalen was unable to explain how Navalny and the incident with him have to do with the UK. Or, if this “worried” the head of the British secret service, then it does? Considering the fact that Britain is rich история poisoning and provocations precisely on this basis ...

    The Skripals were kidnapped and have not yet been shown, and they have little facts, only words about a high degree of probability.

      Where did they take Maria Skripal? A citizen of Russia? They are silent ... And Navalny told them how and where he "fell" ... twice poisoned ... thrice damned ... you are not even in the EU ... already. tongue

        We are to blame for everything and everyone. Do not go to the fortuneteller. Navalny has nothing to do with it, and his assistant M. Pevchikh most likely lives there. Hence the conclusion ...

          Her father is doing this: "One of the latest projects of Konstantin Pevchikh is the promotion of the SkinPort system for painless drug delivery through the skin. The system is represented by a special nozzle for a standard syringe. There are many micro needles on the nozzle that painlessly inject drugs under the skin."

    And probably would like to constantly and with impunity crap Russia and dream about the weakness and lack of capabilities of its intelligence and counterintelligence?

      But Russia does not always succeed in shitting. Sometimes Russia gives in the teeth. And when the teeth fall out from the teeth, they immediately screams about disgusting and filthy Russia, which strives to push poor England and all the Anglo-Saxons into the cesspool of history ... At the same time, however, they do not say that they belong there ...

    Britain could not voice the entire list of Russian citizens dear to its heart? British intelligence sent Navalny to "intelligence", but we do not know. Go figure out who is a priceless "Magnitsky" citizen of the Russian Federation, and who is simply "Platoshkin". bully

    After leaving the EU, the Russian Federation is not interested in small Britain. Well, the closure of the London Stock Exchange is a matter of time. It looks like the Russian Federation is putting the Iron Curtain in the West. hi
