Russia’s Federal Security Service Agent Admits Murder Plot

| December 21, 2020

Remember Alexei Anatolievich Navalny? He’s the Russian opposition activist who ran afoul of Vlad and his charming crew, and would up hospitalized from the effects of a nasty nerve agent, Novichok. He’s lucky to be alive.
Assassination attempts like this don’t go unnoticed, and there’s more than sufficient means, motive, and opportunity to point fingers. Some investigative skullduggery has resulted in a confession.

“If it Hadn’t Been for the Prompt Work of the Medics”: FSB Officer Inadvertently Confesses Murder Plot to Navalny

December 21, 2020

-Bellingcat and its partners reported that Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) was implicated in the near-fatal nerve-agent poisoning of Alexey Navalny on 20 August 2020. The report identified eight clandestine operatives with medical and chemical/biological warfare expertise working under the guise of the FSB’s Criminalistics Institute who had tailed Alexey Navalny on more than 30 occasions since 2017. At least three of these operatives were in the close vicinity of Navalny near the time of his poisoning.
-During his year-end press conference on Thursday of last week, Russian president Vladimir Putin did not deny Bellingcat’s findings, which detailed how these FSB operatives had been tailing Navalny, including on his trip to Tomsk. However, the Russian president claimed – without presenting evidence – that this was due to alleged cooperation between Navalny and “United States intelligence agencies”. Putin also denied that the FSB had any role in his poisoning, and stated that “if [the FSB] wanted to, they would have taken their job to the end”. He did not explain why a suspect would need to be surveilled by officers with chemical-warfare and medical backgrounds, nor why these agents communicated with leading Russian experts in nerve toxins in the days and hours before Navalny’s poisoning, as disclosed by Bellingcat.

Bellingcat can now disclose that it and its investigative partners are in possession of a recorded conversation in which a member of the suspected FSB poison squad describes how his unit carried out, and attempted to clean up evidence of, the poisoning of Alexey Navalny. The inadvertent confession was made during a phone call with a person who the officer believed was a high-ranking security official. In fact, the FSB officer did not recognize the voice of the person to whom he was reporting details of the failed mission: Alexey Navalny himself.

This is the ruthlessness a Biden administration would deal with. Read the entire article here: Bellingcat.com and more here: CNN.com

    The Bidenizens would handle it the way my mother handled unpleasant truths: I’m SURE that isn’t true!

    I for one can’t wait for our foreign policy to be appeasement. The tactic has robbed Iran of their nuclear ambitions, keeps Russia from invading Ukraine again, and frankly, if appeasement worked for Chamberlain, it works for me!

    Think his wife said “I can cure this three drops of rose”?

    Yeah, we have no enemies world wide, right Joe?
    Fudge, I hope a hostile election takeover military coup.

      Here? You hope there’s a military coup here?

      • ChipNASA says:

        That was a little “conspiracy theory” tongue in cheek/sarcasm.
        I hope this mess gets cleaned up. I can’t *not* believe that there’s not mass “oddities” in the voting results. It’s just way too fucked up looking. It SMELLS.

        • Mason says:

          It is absolutely insane how the left and the MSM (I repeat myself) have jumped on that whole “Trump is going to lead a military coup!” story. What. The. Fuck.

        • LC says:

          I certainly don’t mind a little tongue-in-cheek humor, and hoped that was the case. I disagree with you on the ‘mass oddities’ factor, but even if the roles were reversed, I’m pretty sure I’d want an orderly transition of power.

          Mason’s comment on the ‘coup’ angle aside, calls for instituting martial law bring us another step closer to that dangerous precipice, and with Flynn, Lin Wood and (allegedly) White House advisors arguing for that very thing, it can a little unsettling. And as much as he blames the ‘left’ for the coup angle, the very group Flynn supports insists it’s already a coup -using that exact word!- but, in their reality, one orchestrated by the evil Democrats:

          I hope, over time, the lack of real evidence for widespread fraud brings you back to the simpler, real explanation: Trump lost, fair and square.

            Trump had four years to drain the swamp…
            the idiots couldn’t even do that.. let alone refusing to take sound advice,
            When he came in. to stand up a special counsel..
            I don’t feel sorry for him
            He had a chance
            And his ego got in the way..

            Just saying but he spends
            Like a drunk sailor
            Doesn’t he

            • AW1Ed says:

              Dammit Skip. This sailor, drunk or sober, stopped spending when the money ran out.

              • 11B-Mailclerk says:

                And then some maniac gave sailors credit cards…

                Doesn’t work too well with other drunk servicepeeps, either.

                Or congresscritters. (Drunk or not)

    Secret agents using nerve agents. Takes a lotta nerve.

    Some things never change.
    Russians are going to Russian.
