According to British media reported that some Russian source has revealed that the Russian government may be responsible for domestic counter-espionage work of the Federal Security Agency and foreign intelligence gathering in the combined foreign intelligence service, the KGB’s intelligence set up a similar organization.
spy scandal dealt a heavy blow
Russian spies around the news this year is exceptionally eye-catching. The end of June this year, 10 Russian spies lurking in the United States by the U.S. police arrested and deported. Russia’s carefully constructed in the United States is a traitor betrayed this spy network was only U.S. intelligence uncovered. After the investigation has revealed that a traitor is a foreign intelligence service, Colonel Bojieyefu in the “sleeping spy ‘arrested 10 days ago defected to the United States.
recently, Russia and the United Kingdom and Spain, it came to spy war news. 22 British Foreign Office confirmed that Britain and Russia the two countries have expelled each other a diplomat. 28, there has been news reports, Russia expelled two Russian diplomats in Spain, which is Russia’s expulsion of Spain seven weeks ago the Russian embassy in Spain and two secretaries of the response.
potential spies from the Russian diplomat after another after another was dug up and deported can be seen, the Russian spy on a global scale is widely distributed, pervasive.
Some analysts believe that Russian spies exposed led to a large reason is that Russian intelligence officers was too complex organization. Since 2000, under the auspices of Putin, has been a renewed emphasis on intelligence, intelligence agencies have recruited a large number of intelligence personnel, to expand the shrinking of the intelligence network, but was recruited staff who will inevitably mixed.
Russian spy to light the identity of the foreign intelligence service is a serious dereliction of duty, but also an unprecedented blow to the sector. Western media said, after another spy scandal has made the Foreign Intelligence Service “lost.”
head may be Putin who
Western intelligence agencies generally divided into a number of special powers departments, to prevent centralized state secrets to the same department , while a number of separate intelligence agencies can be mutually constraining. The KGB on the contrary, its advantage lies in the integration and efficiency, is that foreign intelligence agencies and domestic counter-espionage agencies work closely together. KGB stands for “National Security Council,” is set during the Soviet intelligence, security, defense and other functions in a super-security organs, in World War II and the Cold War played an unprecedented role. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, in order to weaken the forces of the KGB, Yeltsin to break it. In Soviet times, the Federal Security Service’s position within the KGB’s foreign intelligence service less. However, after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Federal Security Service is considered to be the legitimate heir to the KGB.
Some analysts say Putin will have been merged in and the idea of ??foreign intelligence agencies. Putin had served in the late 1990s the leadership of the Federal Security Agency, and thus more highly valued in the department’s role in the intelligence system. 2003, Putin also ordered the Federal Security Agency the right to conduct independent operations overseas. Some analysts believe that the merger when implemented, the reorganization of the intelligence services and political influence will be greatly enhanced. But there are also ex-KGB officer believe that the combined intelligence agencies may not be able to improve security and efficiency, because the Soviet-era KGB, the internal complexity of human relations, internal struggles are not uncommon.
now Russia media attention is that if intelligence restructuring, who will become the new head. WikiLeaks network recently reported that the U.S. Ambassador to Russia November 5, 2009 in a telegram to Washington, wrote that the Russian Federal Security Service Bortnikov, Foreign Intelligence Service Mikhail Fradkov and Interior Minister Nurgaliev is the “Cold War mentality of” people, but they were not into the core power ring. Therefore, some analysts believe that the three candidates who may not be the new head is likely to have new people turned out, but the candidate must be “Putin’s people.” (Source: International Online – “News of the World”)
