Saak Karapetyan, Russian prosecutor, responsible for investigating the Litvinenko and Skripal cases, also with connections to the Trump Jr / Russia link dies in helicopter crash and now there's a suggestion he managed to get shot in the head before the crash. Tough day.

There is an old Russian saying - "First rule of flying helicopter, - don't play with gun at same time".

The Russion secret spy agencies seem not to be so secret. Putin is reported to be upset by their keystone cops antics. Been to made look really silly and didn't even manage to do their mission correctly. Let's hope they have practicing their soon to be punishment -->

Maybe agent xmiphffy can explain the current conundrum. So according Russia and the useful... nope useless idiot trolls it's nothing to do with Russia, all big Western conspiracy bla bla bla. Yet the head of GRU has had such an almighty personal meeting without chairs or coffee, cap off, at attention and don't stand on the bloody carpet shammocking delivered personally from Putin tgat afterwards he's reported in sick.

Bellingcat use open source (i.e. publicly available information). They haven't revealed how they found the second guy yet but say they will reveal it at 1pm today.

You can read how they found the first guy on their website here.

Probably the worst thing they did, in their botch up was disposing of the evidence. How dumb was that? It made things 10x worse for their "undercover" mission because it kept people interested in this rather than it dying down.

All helped by them both being put on public display in a television interview so we could see their faces properly and therefore people could use that as a real live photo-fit for more digging.

This will be a casebook in not how to do an operation and cover up when it goes wrong

Seems like it'd be a nice way of supporting Salisbury.

They don't seem to have an online store unfortunately. There is a shop on Fisherton street whose CCTV they were spotted on that sells postcards online though, 50 of them for £12.50.

An insight into the predicament that Russians in the UK can be in: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-09...

"Come home to Mother Russia."

"Why?"

"It's not safe in England. Look at Skripals."

"Er... OK, but what about those trumped-up corruption allegations?"

"They can go away. Trust us..."

"And if I stay here?"

"Is not problem. Poor Glushkov - we make toast. More vodka?"

Head of the GRU dies after a "a serious and long illness"....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46298959

...except that he was apparently well enough to travel to Washington in January.

https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/why-the-direct...

Some background surrounding his appointment in 2016.

https://warontherocks.com/2016/02/what-putins-secu...

It will be interesting to see if any of the names mentioned there eventually appear as his successor.

There does appear to be a Spinal Tap drummer syndrome surrounding the post though.

Guy I know had a massive brain tumor. Untreatable. Worked for 4 years after diagnosis. He was fully able to do his job until the day it killed him.

Read the article. 'Lose' as in, he contaminated the family home before they realised he'd been in contact with Novichok, so everything was destroyed.

No fking about with this stuff.
