The excoronel of the GRU (the military intelligence already from the soviet times), Sergey Skripal , he was caught passing information to the Uk and he was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2006. Not fulfilled, because in July 2010 it was redeemed, together with three other informants in the service of the West, by 10 spies russians who were caught in commission of a crime in the united States, among them the glamorous and worldly matahari, Anna Chapman .
Then, the so-called "tourists" Russian Alexander Petrov, and Ruslan Boshírov, also agents of the GRU, according to London, tried to kill him along with his daughter in Salisbury with Novichok, a substance for military use highly toxic.
on The other hand, had been unmasked by two young and seductive spies Russian, the aforementioned Chapman, and Mary Bútina. The first, after being redeemed, he returned to his country to lead a program on the Russian tv. The second is still imprisoned in the united states, although it soon could be released and deported back to Russia.
But the one that has escaped by a hair's breadth of falling into the hands of the secret services of Vladimir Putin and be sent to prison, to good insurance for a long season, has been Oleg Smolenkov, a gray Russian diplomat converted in confident. Spied nothing more and nothing less than Putin and did so from within the Administration of the Russian Presidency, from an office located in the street Ilinka, next to the Red Square and a stone's throw from the Kremlin. It seems that she never met personally with the head Russian, but was able to read the reports that passed through his office. He escaped with his family to the united States before being discovered.
The leak occurred in 2017 and, according to the american press, it was he who informed the CIA that Putin had given order to influence by all the media in the presidential elections of 2016 , in which he defeated the current head of the White House, Donald Trump . The CIA decided that Smolenkov was in danger in Moscow and had to get him out of there.
The international channel CNN argues that there was fear of an indiscretion of one's own Trump, who already showed on one occasion little caution in sharing confidences with the minister of Russian Foreign, Sergey Lavrov , could betray the mole. Out for that reason or any other, for example, because maybe it could detect that the man Russian the CIA infiltrated the Kremlin was beginning to be monitored by the FSB, the old KGB, what is certain is that he put a clean pair of heels in the company of his wife and children.Montenegro Virginia
he went to Montenegro as if they were on vacation and disappeared on board of a boat. Their final destination was in Stafford (Virginia), a town very close to Washington, d.c., along the Potomac river, where his american friends had arranged a nice house. When the time passed and in the Administration of the Kremlin realized that Smolenkov had disappeared, believed that he was dead. In fact opened a criminal case for murder, but the case was dropped suddenly in a few days.
The Russian authorities never got to know the disappearance, and asked for information to Washington, which seems to indicate that they did not know their whereabouts and maybe not even that had been spying on the head of the State. Or, if you know this, you can resolve to keep silence to hide the humiliating goal that I had gotten the CIA.Updated Date: 22 September 2019, 07:01
