    Ukrainian Conflict Partly Responsible for US Anti-Russian Spy Bill

    US-Russian tensions over the Ukraine crisis contributed to efforts in Congress to resurrect a program initially designed to catch Soviet spies, former CIA and US National Intelligence Council officer Paul Pillar told Sputnik.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, BuzzFeed News, citing intelligence sources, reported that the US Senate Intelligence Committee proposed a bill to re-establish a Cold War-era interagency committee to counter Russian espionage activities on US soil.


    In this case, Russia must retaliate 10x more severely so no American dog (spies) is left alive in Russia russia

    Yes, Russia better capitalize on this neo-McCarthy hysteria. It is a joke really as there are no Russian spies in the US trying to engineer
    regime change. However, the US spends at least $100 million per year trying to foist regime change on Russia. All of the US spies in Russia
    need to be exposed, prosecuted and either incarcerated or shipped off to NATO. Spies are not just some James Bond myth, they include
    all the 5th column liberast dirtbags who are eager to sell out their country to suck up to their utopian ideals (instead of just packing their
    bags and moving to their perceived paradises). There are still way too many US spy outfits called "NGOs" that need to be shut down in
    Russia.

    Russia must adopt mirror legislation to that the US is imposing. It will at least have real utility in Russia. In the US it is nothing more than
    a witch hunt.

    NATO Assured USSR of No Plans to Expand Eastward in Early 1990s - Ex-Soviet FM

    The Soviet Union received in the early 1990s assurance from NATO that the alliance would not expand toward the USSR border, the last Soviet foreign minister, Boris Pankin, said.

    STOCKHOLM (Sputnik) — The Warsaw Pact on collective defense between the USSR and seven satellite states in Eastern and Central Europe was terminated in 1991, nine months before the collapse of the Soviet Union itself. The Council for Mutual Economic Assistance that also included the USSR and its Eastern and Central European allies, as well as some other communist states, ceased to exist also in 1991. The withdrawal of Soviet forces from Easter Europe was expected to be completed within two years by late 1990.

    "The thing is that when all these steps were taken while [Mikhail] Gorbachev was in power — the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, and the dissolution of the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, and the withdrawal of troops [from Eastern Europe in the late 1980s] — all of it was perceived positively, that's how naive people were… And they assured that reciprocal steps were and would be taken. As for NATO, such promises were given to me as well," Pankin said in an interview to RIA Novosti.

    Pankin, who served as the USSR ambassador to Czechoslovakia in 1990-1991, said then German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher admitted to him once they felt "a great pressure from Eastern European new regimes," that were members of neither the European Union nor NATO at the time. Genscher said there was great pressure, with Eastern European countries willing to join Western alliances, while Western states did not want them to join the blocs at the moment.

    According to Pankin, Genscher was one of the first of Western officials who shared with him thoughts on transforming NATO from a purely military bloc into a military-political alliance.

    Moscow currently maintains that NATO’s eastward expansion undermines the European security architecture and threatens Russian national security.
