    HISTORY OF SPECIAL SERVICES

    The failure of the project "Ivy"
    One of the most secret CIA intelligence projects of the early 1970s was the use of submarines to penetrate Soviet territorial waters, almost invading the layout of our naval bases.

    Cocoon" for underwater espionage
    The CIA considered the top secret project “Ivy” (“IVY BELLS”) to be the culmination of its intelligence explorations of the 1970s — picking up information from our underwater cable lines. The Americans proceeded from the fact that we, believing in the invulnerability of submarine cables, will either use simple ciphers or negotiate in clear text. To intercept the talks they used submarines. The downside was that they were forced for a long time to stand still above the cable. This, of course, threatened to decipher the operation. It was necessary to replace the submarines with a stationary device capable of working in autonomous mode and “merging” the accumulated information coming into the “turnout” submarine. As a result, such a device on the instructions of the CIA was created by NSA experts.

    The device, called the "Cocoon", embodied the latest achievements of radio-electronic technologies and was able to "remove" information from the cable without opening its outer shells.

    "Cocoon" was a cigar-shaped container, in the tail part of which there was a miniature nuclear reactor, which served as a power source for the onboard radio-electronic system.

    First naval officer nominated to head Russia’s GRU

    The GRU’s previous chief, Igor Korobov, died on November 21


    Russian Intelligence Services: News & Discussion - Page 14 1208239

    MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. First Deputy Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Intelligence Department (GRU) Vice-Admiral Igor Kostyukov has been appointed as the GRU’s acting head and he is also the most probable candidate for this post, a source in the Defense Ministry told TASS on Thursday.

    The GRU’s previous chief, Igor Korobov, died on November 21, 2018 at the age of 62 after a long and grave illness.

    "First Deputy Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Intelligence Department Igor Kostyukov has been appointed as the Department’s acting head," the source said.

    Kostyukov is also the main candidate for the post of GRU boss, the source said. ‘If he is appointed, he will be the first naval officer in the GRU’s history to take the helm of military intelligence."

    TASS has no official confirmation on this information yet.

    According to open sources, Kostyukov was born on February 21, 1961. He first earned a degree at a naval educational institution and then graduated from the Military Diplomatic Academy, after which he came to serve in the Main Intelligence Department.

    As one of the heads of Russian military intelligence, he directly took part in exercising control over the military operation in Syria. The vice-admiral was awarded the title of Hero of Russia for his courage and heroism displayed when performing his military duties. In late December 2016, he was placed on Washington’s sanctions list for alleged actions to ‘undermine democracy’ in the United States and in September 2018, he was again blacklisted by the US for allegedly interfering in the 2016 US presidential elections.

    and on a different subject.. just days after MACRON announce an European Army to counter US..
    A major ryellow evolution well organized shows in France.. for fuel prices.. even though in other
    parts of Europe the prices is worse but no protest there..



    Even the Russian media is exposing it.. the yellow protest in france are pay back to Macron
    for his European only army proposition.. Hopefully Putin will not sit on his hands as he always does ,

    Why the hell should anyone in Russia give a crap about what French owners are doing with their property?

    This mess works to Russia's advantage so they should just bake and hand out some cookies and enjoy the show.

    Actually, this is good for Russia. If those protest in France prolonged and they will and if protesters blocked all gas stationsand disabled communications, than french economy will go bankrupt. With the fall of France whole EU will fall and go bankruot and after that US will go bankruot as well as US economy is very dependent on EU market. When EU and US go bankrupt, their military might will also fall down and this disaster will be far harder that the fall of Russian army in the nineties after the break up of Soviet Union.

    The main opposition to Micron was Le Pen, so why lift a finger to help the little man?

    He was happy to blame Russia for all the bad things in the world... screw him.... he is pretty much a US stooge anyway.

    His statement that the EU army was to defend against Russia and China and (even) the US... is like saying it is to defend against main enemy number one, main enemy number two, or anyone for that matter even those that might seem to be friends now because things can change.

    He has every reason to say it that way... look at how Trump turned on his so called EU allies when they didn't fall into line over Iran...

    The US is an ally of convenience... and there is no secret that it is only Americas convenience that is satisfied...

    Ten intelligence agencies ramp up efforts aimed at Russian military, says FSB

    Military counterintelligence officers unmasked dozens of intelligence agents among them from the US, the UK, Germany and Spain

    MOSCOW, December 18. /TASS/. Intelligence agencies from at least ten countries have been showing high interest in Russia’s Armed Forces, Head of the Military Counterintelligence Department at the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Colonel General Nikolai Yuryev said in an interview with TASS ahead of the military counterintelligence agency’s centennial anniversary.

    "Russia’s Armed Forces still are a matter of interest for foreign intelligence agencies," he noted. "This is proven by the fact that military counterintelligence officers exposed dozens of intelligence agents from the US, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Georgia and Poland [in the past five years - TASS]," Yuryev added.

    The general stressed that the FSB Military Counterintelligence Department and army security agencies were particularly tasked with preventing foreign intelligence agencies from reaching out to the Russian Armed Forces, collecting intelligence concerning security threats, preventing terrorist and subversive activities against the army, as well as with protecting state secrets, countering organized crime, corruption, arms and drug trafficking in the army.

    Russia’s military counterintelligence agency will mark its centennial anniversary on December 19.

    FSB's Military CI Department under Gen-Col Nikolay Yuryev celebrates 100th anniversary on Dec. 19. It existed under the Tsar but the Bolsheviks created a "unified system" of CI when the "special sections" of the VChK were created in the army and navy.

    Yeah... which clearly spells out that what he means is economic threat.

    China is a serious economic threat to US dominance of the worlds organisations.

    In terms of a military threat China is a regional power, but not a threat to the entire western civilisation like Russia could be if provoked.

    The British interviewer clearly wanted him to say Russia was a bigger threat, because the UK doesn't see itself wanting to trade a lot with Russia, but it likely wants to trade a lot with China and if the US says no they will have problems...

    Looks like Russian FSB won the lottery with the arrest of  Paul Whelan ..

    Russian Intelligence Services: News & Discussion - Page 14 5c2fcb48dda4c855578b45c5

    https://www.rt.com/news/448101-whelan-us-uk-spy-russia/


    he turned to be a former US marine with citizenship ,that was born in Canada but of British parents..
    and with citizenship of US,UK,Canada. Ireland.. lol1
    and those governments are seeking communication with him.. Cool
    he was since 2007 traveling to Russia and was caught with hands in the cookie jar ,
    spying the kremlin .. Smile  

    Now Russia can use this man ,to demand the release of not only butina
    which is not a spy .. and the kidnapped  Huawei top executive in Canada.
    or Russia can hold him for years.to try  to get cooperation from him ,and that he
    expose other spies.. to totally dismantle UK and US  spying operations rings in Russia.  Cool
    Making Russia safe again from terrorist.  Wink

    if i was putin ,i will seriously avoid any government visit to US or UK or Canada,.
    there was an invitation of NASA to Rogozin to visit US and talk to students.. which could be a trap..
    to kidnap him .. . now they could arrest him and later change him for this thug Russia captured.
    So hopefully Russia government will avoid sending their officers ,in times US and CAnda and UK seeking
    to kidnap Russia and chinese citizens.

    Sad they let the Americans see him... the treatment of Russians in the US has been appalling...

    Would not let the British see him until they let Russia see the Skripals...

    And I certainly would not trade him for Maria as she is not a spy.

    NASA rescinds invitation to Russian space chief amid pressure from US lawmakers is the title, but the article ends with:

    Roscosmos, meanwhile, said that it had not been notified by NASA about the postponement of Rogozin's visit.

    Dunno where to post about this

    But so there was so called protests in Russia on anniversary of Nemtsovs death. They try to claim 10,000 people arrived in Moscow but of course that is greatly exaggerated. Most people were flying Ukrainian flags (go figure) and carrying pictures of terrorist sentsov.

    I really hope the authorities arrest and charge people carrying sentsov photo as that is against Russian law to promote those who are terrorists. Russia does a really. Really. Really bad job at enforcing their own laws.

    Foreign NGOs and 5th columnists are still given a free hand in Russia to do all sorts of demagoguery againts the government and state interests. Putin or whoever is in charge of Russia needs to do more to squash these foreign prostitutes. I just hope that someone is listening. Ignoring these saboteurs is a grave mistake!

    Pro-tip: unless you see footage or photos from above, remove last digit from every reported number of protestors

    That's the thing. Russian authorities counted roughly 6K people. "Independent" foreign NGO's state 10,000. Either way, no bird's eye view yet. In every case it was always a sad showing

    Also, it was funny cause only one guy actually made it to Nemtsovs grave. Non of his wives, girlfriends or iligitimate children made it.

    As well, someone was interviewing people and asked them why they protest. Average answer from the hampsters was "Putin's people make millions!" Then when they were asked then why Nemtsov had over $1M USD in his account after he does, they just screeched.
