OSCE mission as a “roof” for spies in Ukraine

The topic that we will consider today has been discussed for quite a long time among journalists and specialists. Very often the facts said that the OSCE mission in the Donbass was somehow connected with the Ukrainian special services. But no one dared to speak openly about this connection. Specialists are too scrupulous about international treaties relating to them. They understand that those who violate the established rules will become an outcast in that cramped and not always cozy world where the security services live and work.

OSCE mission as a “roof” for spies in Ukraine

And then (and this happens quite often) the employees of the “violators of the convention” will “get exposed” in the event of failure, and no one will conduct any backstage talks with them. It's easier to arrange a car accident or something else like that.

Moreover, specialists in combating the "ears and eyes of the enemy" in their own rear took measures to neutralize the employees of the opposing side. It’s not for nothing that periodically in the press there appeared “offended” statements by someone from the OSCE mission that they were “shown” by unreal positions and roadblocks. Yes, and the shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine laid shells in white light, like a pretty penny. And about the unsuccessful attempts and the periodic failures of the RDG Ukrainian Military University, it’s boring to write something.

To understand the complexity of counterintelligence work with the OSCE mission, you just need to learn something about the organization itself. The overall composition of the mission - 412 people. These are precisely those who are called international observers. In addition, another 54 employee from other countries works in the mission. They are analysts, head of mission, advisors, etc.

Naturally, so many foreigners can not do without the help of the local population. There is a language barrier. So, there must be translators. There are features of lifestyle in various areas. So, there are advisers on this issue. Not to mention the fact that all these people need to be fed, should be placed in hotels, we must clean up after them. Carry finally. Therefore, 176 Ukrainians work in the mission. The total strength of the mission in Ukraine is 642 person.

Many people think that the mission is entirely focused on the Donbas. However, it is not. OSCE staff monitors the development of the situation throughout Ukraine. The main office, of course, is located in Kiev. Others - in Chernivtsi, Dnepropetrovsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkov, Kherson, Lviv, Odessa, Lugansk and Donetsk. Well, the last thing that will be interesting is the gender composition of the mission. 341 male and 71 female.

And now how the FSB officers were “spotted” by a Ukrainian spy from the OSCE mission. No matter how abused the Russian special services were, the professionalism of the staff went nowhere. Work to ensure the security of Russia is underway. And it goes well.

"The FSB of Russia reported the arrest of an agent of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Artem Shestakov, who, working as a translator at the OSCE monitoring mission in Lugansk, collected military information for the Ukrainian special services.

As stated by the FSB Public Relations Center (DSP), "testimonies and documentary materials obtained from Shestakov clearly indicate that the security services of Ukraine, illegally using the OSCE mission, are engaged in collecting military information in the territory of the Lugansk People's Republic (LNR) -Act of terrorism".

This message appeared on news TASS tape July 18th.

"According to the testimonies received from Shestakov, in the summer of 2015 of the year, as an employee of the OSCE mission in Lugansk, he traveled to Kiev, where he was recruited into the agent’s office of the SBU under the pseudonym" Svarog "by Sergey Mikhailovich Slipchenko, the DSP said. - Shestakov, on the instructions of the SBU, carried out on the territory of the proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic, collecting information of a political, socio-economic and military nature. As a member of the mission, an international body tion, Shestakov regularly visited the LC organs of power, dislocation place units of the militia. "

We will return to the statement of the DSP. In the meantime, that preceded this detention. At the beginning of the article we wrote about some rules for specialists of all countries. One of these rules is that if the enemy did not cause any harm to you, then “warn” to stop the work.

And now I recall the events of the beginning of June of this year. In the DPR, more precisely on the border between the DPR and the LPR, the driver of the OSCE mission from among local residents was detained. We give part of the message about this detention.

"In early June, the border guard service of the DPR at the border with the LPR was arrested and taken to the investigative office of the DPR MGB of the OSCE from the local residents of Donetsk. At the moment, the officer convicted of espionage was arrested and held in one of the places of detention. a request to extradite that person. "

Moreover, the press service of the DPR called the specific harm that this "employee of the OSCE mission" caused. And this is no less than 25 dead Republicans, 4 tank, two Grads and self-propelled guns. Naturally, the driver himself did not shoot. He simply on the Internet, in the process of ensuring the work of observers, reported the coordinates of the targets that the "Ukrainian" gunners "successfully" covered.

Details of the negotiations are not known. However, the spy is already 8 June was transferred to the OSCE mission. Most likely, it was a warning. Yes, and to quarrel with the OSCE in the task of the Republicans did not enter. There was hope for help in curbing the belligerent sentiments of Kiev. However, for the Security Service of Ukraine today, "hell is not a brother." Russophobia above all. Yes, and faith in the all-powerful overseas host driven Ukrainian specialists in the head thoroughly. And there is no court.

So back to the DSP post.

"In October-November 2015, Shestakov, on the instructions of the Ukrainian military intelligence, transmitted information about travel routes, used cars, telephone numbers of one of the leaders of the Cossacks P. Dremov (chieftain of the Lugansk Cossacks - TASS), who was later killed by Ukrainian special services." (Dremov's car was blown up on 12 last December not far from Pervomaisk. - Approx. TASS).

In addition, it is noted in the message of the FSB, Shestakov "was engaged in employment issues in the representative offices of international organizations in Ukraine of other agents of the Ukrainian special agencies."

So, one of the attempts is cleared up. More precisely, it became known who is behind this attempt. Dremov for Cossacks figure significant. I wonder now how this Cossacks will relate to this mission?

But the most interesting of the messages left for dessert. How was it with the great leader? If the enemy does not surrender - they destroy him?

"The testimonies and documentary materials obtained by counterintelligence of the FSB of Russia from Shestakov unambiguously indicate that the secret services of Ukraine, illegally using the OSCE mission, are engaged in collecting military information on the territory of the LPR, are organizing sabotage and terrorist acts," the report revealed. indicate that Ukrainian special services ignore the norms of international law. "

“Considering that Shestakov did not damage Russia's security by his espionage activities, in accordance with the current legislation, he was allowed to return to the territory of Ukraine,” the report says. “At the same time, the entrance to the SBU informant will be closed in our country.”

A natural question arises: how will the OSCE mission now be “laundered” from documented charges? The charges are really serious. Almost SBU globally framed their "roof."

It is clear that now there will be no faith in the mission staff. And not because among them a lot of spies. Perhaps most employees honestly do their duty. Maybe not the majority, but part. And not until the end, but from 9 to 17 hours. And after that, even though the whole outskirts of Donetsk were "rewritten" by Grads, the working day is already over. It is possible in the morning to come funnels to shoot. The morning is wiser than the evening.

Only here in Russia there are a couple of sayings made by people. About the black sheep, which spoils the whole herd, and about a fly in the ointment. Residents of the DPR and LNR doubts about the honesty of mission staff can cost lives. As well as life's worth of frankly clumsy work, although it is often the job to call what the “missionaries” do, the language does not turn.

The hybrid war, about which we are told from television screens every day, has entered the stage of active opposition to the special services. And this means that soon there will be a lot of interesting facts, and even more speculation, about the political life of Ukrainian and Donetsk politicians. On heroism and betrayal. On the true goals and objectives of specific political figures. And perhaps the details of some attempts on well-known commanders, writers, journalists will be revealed ...

It is possible, then, that doubts will disappear that, for example, the Brain was eliminated, as we tried to convey at one time, by no means our own, but very foreign ones.

Let's wait ...

    Expected something like that. And why not provide the activities of these missions with their employees, at the worst, with proven personnel, and not with such venal wraps? It is not clear from the article what is stopping this. Apparently, all the same, the scarcity of counterintelligence resources of the BCH.

      The OSCE mission consists of citizens of many states. Including 23 Russians participate.
      And the driver who was detained on June 4, a resident of Donetsk ... So, proven and so on are more likely dreams and desires. anyone who works in the mission is forced to travel to Kiev, to the central office. This means that he will be recruited. In a civil war, there are many ways to "help the pan choose the right side of the conflict" ...

        Colleague, these "... including 23 Russians ..." on the instructions of the head of the mission, to whom they are directly subordinate, are engaged in anything, but not monitoring the situation on the ground. They will simply not be allowed to climb where they consider unnecessary. And if reports on violations are received from the Russians (and they do), then in the final report of the mission all this is blacked out and varnished. Look at the reports - there is practically no indication of the perpetrators of the deaths of civilians. Only a stupid statement - "there was an explosion, the person died", what kind of explosion, who fired a shot (volley), from what direction, who is "in charge" there - silence ...
        The OSCE mission is not only a "cover" for spies working for the junta - it itself, a structure that clearly puts sticks in the implementation of the agreements of "Minsk-2", does not allow "break in" the Armed Forces, in response to shelling ...

    Yes, there will not be any "laundering"! A couple, at best, standard explanations and that's it.

        need to think about the consequences.

    OSCE (OSCE) - Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Why not create an independent group of non-interested parties, for example, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in the World, which would include countries such as India, China, Brazil, etc.

      You can create anything you like, but the question remains in the recognition of such an organization by other countries of the world.
      If you pay attention, the US and the EU recognize the reports and conclusions of only those "international and independent" organizations that themselves control or have leverage in them, all the rest of the organization are considered by them as hostile and not authoritative.
      Since the Ukrainian junta is controlled by the United States, only those organizations that the United States will give consent to monitor the situation in Ukraine.
      All other organizations not pleasing to the USA can give an assessment of the situation in the frontline only from the DPR and LPR.

    In my opinion, no one in the LDNR deceived himself about the OSCE from the very beginning, and that these guys were not there to establish parities, it was immediately clear and blinded on the Ukrov side and merged with the Donetsk and Luhansk ones, and the fact that a recruited translator suddenly surfaced there is also nothing surprising. Most interesting of all, how will the "home" in Europe-mother react to this? What will be the reaction? Most likely, they will pretend that nothing happened and traditionally lick the ass to the mattresses - then loyally looking into the eyes, like what else do you want ???

    What happens is ALWAYS happening in Ukraine! They say, with a mustache - we'll figure it out without you ... no one wants to negotiate with anyone!
    But everything is simple: to agree on the admission of OSCE representatives to the territories controlled by Novorosia with their translators and drivers; in their cars ... accompanied by their people, to pre-arranged places ... In the end, neither the OSCE nor the UN are some kind of government or world power ... If they did not recognize Novorossia, then you are strangers here! And "let go" or "hold" - that's up to the current owners of these territories! After all, NATO spies have already come across in the OSCE mission red-handed ...
    And to place any hopes on the fact that the "mission" will do something serious, such as "the truth is said in the interests of the truth" is already naive! They showed themselves ...

      Hello!! Gentlemen, this is the only chance to keep Europeans away from Ukraine. This is a compromise between the EU and Russia. No other options are even visible yet. Kiev is also not thrilled that this command was imposed on him. He is punching another option with renewed vigor. Makedonsky. Namely the deployment of NATO peacekeeping forces. You must remember what followed. Under this cover began the attack on the Serbian Krajina. And now remember how NATO used the care of the peacekeeping forces. The Ukrainian government is very happy with this situation. And here is a bummer. The OSCE has no armed forces. So they try to replace them. The OSCE mission is a bad option, but so far it is the only one. By the way, Paris and Berlin are also connected, having sold this option to Kiev.

THE SAME NEEDS SO THE PEOPLE TO COME THAT WALKED TO KIEV BY FOOT ?! LORD KEEP THEM ON THE ROAD !!! I BELIEVE THEY WILL COME. PLEASE REPOST !!! God save all those who make this move and the people who cover this event on the Internet! I think that all the media should have done this in their number 1 news. Unfortunately, I do not see much excitement. We are used to war. We are hardened. We are still far from God. What else needs to happen for us to wake up ??? In our place in Izum, at 14 o’clock they were met by the archbishop of Izum and Kupyansky, with the clergy and believers of the Izum diocese. At the head of the procession, its participants carried the Peschansky Icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary - it is miraculous here! Friends, I’ll tell you a strong sight, it was impossible without tears, this feeling that fills every cell of yours and you feel like a part of this universal world, all people are already tormented, everyone is tired, everyone is not happy with what is happening in the country, everyone ate survive , everyone is shocked by this power .... People left the houses and each carried what he could, the girls fled from the market with packages of food and water and gave them to those in the convoy. There are many children, monks, people just joined in and left with a move, one grandfather said to his grandmother: I am leaving with them! and then even die ... my poor people to what they brought him ... Ahead went the priest of the Izyum diocese and sprinkled all the townspeople who moved towards the procession with holy water. I can’t even write, people blessed the move, and those walking in return blessed the Raisins, there was television, there is a photo At 15:30, the procession came to the Cathedral of the Ascension Cathedral. On the church porch, the procession was met by the ruling bishop, Bishop Elisey. He said that it is a great comfort and joy for all the citizens of Izyum to accept two such revered images of the Queen of Heaven in the main cathedral of the city. A list of the miraculous Svyatogorsk icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary was placed in front of the pulpit in the middle of the church. Bishop Elisha addressed the audience with an archpastoral word. He thanked for the work done during this procession as a considerable feat of the spiritual, comforting that the Lord would definitely reward those who worked in the field of such a feat. After that, the greatness was singed in a cathedral and all those gathered in the church were applied to the Svyatogorsk icon and came under the anointing with holy oil from the miraculous image, and they were also applied to the Peschan icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The ruling bishop announced that dinner would be at 19:00 at the end of the evening service, but for now everyone can go to the spring, drink water and bathe. There will also be a settlement in the hotel, where participants in the procession will be able to put themselves in order and relax. Vladyka Elisey noted that this procession of the Cross will lead to a spiritual upsurge of all our people, who want peace and love to reign on our land. “At this procession,” he said, “we pray that there will be love in people's hearts, that there will be no anger, there will be no hatred.” The bishop also noted that people are very pleased with this procession and there is a great spiritual uplift. From each temple there will be an accession of people.
