Western media: Russians expand Foreign Intelligence Service

Russia is actively expanding its Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), which indicates Moscow’s additional efforts to conduct covert operations in Europe and the USA, writes the Washington Free Beacon.

Western media: Russians expand Foreign Intelligence Service


"The satellite images that were collected in a recent report on Russian global intelligence activities show that several new buildings and structures appeared in Moscow at the intelligence center known as the SVR," the article says. Look.

New facilities appeared in the period from 2007 to 2016 g, "when a sharp increase in the activities of Russian intelligence was noted," analysts say.

It is reported that "in the pictures you can see the completed construction of at least three new buildings around the complex, as well as the expansion of parking areas, the capacity of which, according to image analysis of the Federation of American Scientists, has been quadrupled."

Experts told the publication that "the pictures coincide with individual reports of the growing infrastructure of Russian intelligence."

According to Boris Zilberman, an employee of the defense fund of the Center for Democracy, "this is evidence of the physical expansion of the SVR in Russia, and this is not surprising, since countries across Europe and around the world have reported an increase in the activity of Russian foreign intelligence within their borders."

In this regard, Zilberman recalled the "two recently expelled Russian diplomats," who were in fact Russian intelligence officers.

According to him, "intelligence activities have been activated in Britain, Scandinavian countries, Germany, Poland and other countries, which also reported a sharp increase in Russian operations."

With this in mind, “the infrastructure for increasing the number of such operations should be located somewhere, so that in these images we see a manifestation of the growing operations of Russian intelligence,” said the fund's employee.

        The Washington Post claims that Russian spies are ready to take extreme measures to cause trouble for US diplomats in Europe. According to journalists, the Kremlin’s secret agents make their way into the homes of US diplomatic representatives, move furniture, turn on televisions, and once even allowed themselves to defecate on the carpet.

          Hitler takes in his office Mussolini. Suddenly the door swings open, Stirlitz enters,
          Ignoring anyone, he goes to the safe, opens it with his key
          and begins to rummage through it, throwing unnecessary documents on the floor.
          - Who is it? - the Duce asks in surprise.
          “Russian spy Isaev,” the Führer replies in an indifferent tone,
          - We are listed as Stirlitz.
          “So why don't you arrest him?”
          - Ah, it’ll turn off anyway.

          PS laughing

      What the bastards, the toad is choking?
      Do not worry, nothing chokes them. Here, just the other day, after the last NATO summit
      Alliance countries have decided to create a new Intelligence and Security Service. This is stated in the final communiqué of the NATO summit, which took place in Warsaw. It is noted that the reform of the Alliance is necessary for a proper "response to the growing level of external threats." “To enhance NATO’s ability to rely on a wide range of intelligence resources, we agreed to create a new Intelligence and Security Service, which will be led by the Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence and Security”
      It seems that the budget of the new intelligence will not be comparable with the budget of the SVR.
      Although, in fairness, it is worth noting that the SVR is still more a political intelligence service, and our analogue of the all-NATO structure being created is the GRU General Staff of the Ministry of Defense. Frankly speaking, nothing good can be expected from such intentions of the "partners". When is military intelligence usually activated? That's right, before the war. And all these shaking of the air about "activating the Russian intelligence services" are just an excuse for their own aggressive intentions.

    And thank God that the SVR is expanding. In the news: terrorist attacks for terrorist attacks, someone self-blows up, someone shoots from machine guns, in Nice - he drove people in general on a truck. Here, in order to exclude this, the FSB and the SVR were created for internal activities in the country and abroad.

      Every joke has a fraction of a joke. Children are also a resource.
      The US National Security Agency conducts a series of events during which it teaches children the habits of real spies. The latest know-how was the release of the CryptoKids book, whose heroes are keen on programming, decoding, electronics and other sciences that provide access to information.

      The full translation of the book “American Crypto Guys: Future Encoders and Hackers” speaks for itself. The characters of the publication are familiar to young readers since 2010. For almost 5 years, a whole section has been working on the NSA website, where cute little animals from the cyber team talk about their hobbies. About how they learned to decrypt, encode and even crack codes.

      During the training, children are encouraged to try themselves as spies: to create a personal code that parents or teachers will not be able to open. Also, young users are taught the basics of cybersecurity and the Morse code. With a hint of perspective at the US National Security Agency, they talk about the benefits of working in their organization.

      US NSA Children's Camp for Spy Kids

      Special services constantly conduct training in schools, and for children over 13 years of age, they are developing training camps. Everyone there can feel like a spy or cracker while participating in special games, for example, hunting for cyber fraudsters. In an effort to attract the attention of as many children as possible, the NSA is ready to extend the curriculum to 50 states.

    Zilberman - the so-called. "Sovietologist", works in the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy (even those who are not in the know know, if the name contains "democracy" - that's it, put out the lights). He reports that "scientists" who were making satellite images of the SVR complex of buildings accidentally "noticed" that this very complex had somehow grown. On this basis, he concludes that etc. etc.
    He is echoed by Anna Borshchevskaya, an employee of the Washington Institute for Middle East Policy (do you still have questions?), With her ordinary unfounded statements about "aggressive Russia".

    My compliments visual memory of "scientists" containing such a volume of images since 2007. To the "courageous politicians" Zilberman and Borshchevskaya, who drew the attention of the masses to the lawlessness of Putin's agents (where can we go without him).

          Dear Gray Brother of the SVR and the FSB, law enforcement agencies "called upon to protect Russia from external and internal enemies."

          Well, of course, og - then the police and the army are one and the same.

          I sympathize with them.

            Well, of course, og - then the police and the army are one and the same. By the way, the police and the army should protect Russia, but only in its competence. Different security officials have their own competence and their tasks, but the essence should be one. And you can’t steal with these people, since they have declared themselves so. Yes, I sympathize with them (the bears), they’ll have a circus for their whole life, so they probably didn’t laugh. laughing

              In vain you run into FSBshnikov’s newborns, in fact they are the right guys, but what’s wrong, yes, there’s no doubt.
              I roughly understand why they were so dumb.
              Remember, just recently, some daddy’s son ran on a helicopter from DPS and boasted of his steepness on YouTube?
              Well, the guys decided to show that in fact they are the main ones here, and the son and the like are just devilish bastards. In general, the message was meritorious, but unwise.
              Oh youth ...
