Portuguese and Russian detained in Rome on suspicion of espionage


It is noted that the detention was carried out at the request of the Portuguese government.

According to the agency, referring to the investigation, “the arrested Portuguese is a high-ranking employee of the Portuguese intelligence service and the former head of the antiterrorist service Frederico Carvalhoyu Gil”. He is suspected of transferring secret documents to the Russian special services.

The name of the Russian who was detained along with Zhil was not called.

According to the information of the agency, the investigation in relation to Zhila was conducted during the last 2s of the last years.

        The Portuguese write that Frederico Carvalhao Gil already had a bad reputation and was transferred to a department not related to the state. secrets. They also write that he is a Mason. A muddy story ..

          It smacks of provocation and another demonization of Russia.

      The plane of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko flew to Rostov-on-Don for the exchange of Russian citizens Yevgeny Erofeev and Alexander Alexandov to the Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko

        If this is not a provocation, then our SVR now needs to find a spy equivalent to our scout. To start negotiations on an exchange. Such spies should always be "kept under a hood" several pieces.

    "Russian spy" - it could still be a Russo-tourist. But everyone knows that Rousseau-tourist is the face of morality. Well, I do not believe that the personnel could get caught.

    during the detention in Rome, the Portuguese were confiscated documents and money

    Since the Portuguese agent had both the documents and the money, it turns out that ours didn’t HAVE them! And if so, you must apologize and let go! laughing

      Ordinary! Fake and mess. What kind of provocation they want to stir up, it’s not clear. To send an agent to contact us in our time, a tale of a fool
      << According to the agency, the investigation against Zhil was conducted over the past 2 years. >>
      << According to the agency, citing the investigation, "the arrested Portuguese is a high-ranking Portuguese intelligence officer and former head of the anti-terrorist service, Frederico Carvalhao Gil." He is suspected of transferring secret documents to the Russian special services. >> In short, a madhouse and a provocation. Will I carry evidence for a personal meeting with the agent? All this is nonsense and it looks like the Americans again worked clumsy. This is only their provocation, carried out by the hands of the Italian special services.

    It begins! Like them, so is a routine reconnaissance flight, if we are, so unprofessional actions of Russian pilots. They have a tourist, a journalist or a human rights activist, if we are a spy. And what is it, detained only on suspicion, give evidence, otherwise you can call every second spy.

    “The suspects met in Italy to exchange classified political and economic information, particularly concerning NATO and the EU.”

    Maybe they decided to have a drink, maybe they are friends with the school desk. PROOF OF!!! And you yourself know where your suspicions are!

    Most likely, this incident has nothing to do with espionage (and intelligence - as you like). 99,999% is misinformation, t.s. "grenade" in information war, and not to real intelligence activities.

    Everything is much worse than you think! The banal binge grew into a spy scandal!))) They drank a pancake to the limoncello and other boards it seemed a little and went to an ongoing special operation! They gave a cordon to the snout, they were twisted. During the shmona, the Portuguese found working documents! We decided that he decided to transfer them to someone, and next to Russian! Oh spy! Tryndets! You can twist holes for medals!

    funny as it sounds, but in Portugal there is a rule of inevitability of punishment - two years, the person was kept and saved up material, the case turned up and maybe he was taken on the chaff, but for the old sins they can be assigned.
    but in general, of course, this is an element of informational reset.

    I wouldn’t joke. Let's see what will happen next. The name of the Russian spy, for some reason, is not reported. Is the spy Russian? How is it known that he transmitted information? Maybe I just wanted to convey? Whose money is it? Let's wait.

      I have a feeling that the Portuguese were taken as part of a major anti-corruption operation and made an information bomb out of this, distorting reality.
      for reference - when Putin said that he would catch up and overtake Portugal, he lied.
      I’ll change my mind about him if, during the gdp, one of the high-ranking officials is actually imprisoned - the former prime minister of Portugal mantles a shkonar under investigation for the third year.

    It seems like the geyropa was already popping, which caught the Russian screech. The one they probably didn’t need was that Russia lifted the embargo from pasta, otherwise the farmers would get the local authorities out with their tricks. .

    In fact, the Portuguese press writes that although they were "caught red-handed," Carvalho did not pass Portuguese secrets to Russia. Russia was interested in NATO, not Portuguese secrets. In general, the tone of the articles is very friendly, without Russophobia.
