New fresh report from #Kherson on methods and goals of real #FSB work in the Ukrainian occupied territories. Must read. First hand from man who survived. Thanks to @HromadskeUA @Hromadske . Before they translate into English, here are key points, 🧵:
1/ Tortures and mock executions are routine and main methods of recruiting people. It seems that FSB operatives are working for statistics which they report to Moscow and which indicate their "efficiency". It means they have huge deficit of real supporters to expand info network
2/ Ukrainian communications, mobile and #Telegram have been monitored for some time before invasion especially in the border regions, and totally after occupation. It's a serious compromise of #Telegram security and confidentiality. People get killed and tortured 'cause of that.

​​@InformNapalm hints:
- 🇷🇺 GRU plans to de-Lukashenko-ize Belarus
- if true, chaos likely
- 🇷🇺 perceives Union 🇷🇺/🇧🇾 State as disfunctional
- #Lukashenko may be replaced by Gen. Alexander Volfovich or Gen. Stanislav Zas (CSTO)
- both top-brass 🇧🇾 are seen as pro-Russian
- remarkable & unexpected death of 🇧🇾 MFA Vladimir Makei who was completely healthy as a horse
- reportedly VM served as a secret communication channel for Lukashenko with the West (via Austria).
- now these links are cut-off.
- VM considered as independent from Moscow

The #Russian government is continuing to increase its control of the Russian information space as a milblogger noted that Russian efforts “look like a kitten against a rhinoceros” compared with foreign “think tanks,” nonprofits, and “independent media.” Image
2/ #Russian news outlet Kommersant reported that the Russian State Duma may consider a bill before the end of 2022 on the regulation of online “recommender” algorithms that would ultimately allow the government to turn off specific algorithms.
3/ The #Russian Federal State Security Service (FSB) took steps to codify control over the information space and signed a decree that approved a list of military and military-technical activities, which, if received by foreign sources, can threaten #Russia's security.

🔥The work of the main #Kremlin censor has been disrupted. They monitor and censor ppl for @roscomnadzor. 👊📛 Since the beginning of the war, they follow Putin's opponents, write denunciations to the #FSB & other agencies, & block services that help convey truthful info. 1/4 ImageImageImageImage
@roscomnadzor During оur prolonged operation on the #Russian General Frequency Control Center we:

⚡️Hacked the internal network;
⚡️Downloaded documents, correspondence and mail of employees, & tracking systems (+2TB);
⚡️Encrypted workstations;
⚡️Damaged the domain controller. 2/4
@roscomnadzor We are also sending our regards to the #Belarusian surveillance company - Falcongaze😉. Their software has been used to spy on RGFC employees. We know everything employees were doing in the last three months. Falcongaze, your systems are weak. Stop supporting dictators! 3/4 Image

#Perun gibt einige interessante Denkanstöße, schießt aber manchmal über das Ziel hinaus. #Враньё ("Türken bauen") tritt in jeder Organisation auf.
#Gerasimow gilt im Westen als Kompetent (daher wurde ihm wohl #Schoigu vorgesetzt).

#Ukraine️ 1/
Die Reaktion des Westens war für jederman nicht vorhersehbar; auch @JoeriSchasfoort hat seine Einschätzung korrigiert - NACHDEM der Westen gezeigt hat, daß es diesmal keine Token-Sanktionen & #Appeasement gibt.
In den USA hat #nObama #GoldmanSachs gestützt, #LehmanBrothers aber bankrott gehen lassen - JEDE Aussage, wie die USA (geschweige denn "der Westen") reagieren werden, ist Kaffeesatzleserei.

A fundamental forgotten but unresolved #OSINT: On August 20, 2020, #Navalny was allegedly poisoned with #Novichok in Tomsk. #Bellingcat then bought flight and phone connection data on the Darknet and extracted from it the private public mobile phone number of an #FSB man, ...
...who then admitted the whole poisoning plot on this private public mobile phone.
Q: How could Bellingcat link that private public cell phone number to an August 2020 crime when that number was not activated until November 2020?
And how is it possible that 3% of the calls with this number were made from Arlington / Washington DC while the pranked FSB cleaner is explaining to his "superior" (Navalny) that he is in Covid quarantine?

🇷🇺 "#Poutine est comme un requin qui doit rester en mouvement pour survivre. C'est typique des officiers du SVR et du #FSB que j'ai suivis : ils ont une mentalité de prédateur." @douglaslondon5 #Russie #Ukraine…
🇷🇺 "L'objectif [de #Poutine] est d'intimider, mais aussi de maintenir une image d'invincibilité du pouvoir, dont il a besoin pour maintenir la cohésion de ses partisans en #Russie. Mais plus il menace, plus cela veut dire qu'il est faible." @douglaslondon5
🇷🇺 "Pour stopper #Poutine, l'Occident doit lui faire vraiment peur, en menaçant sa capacité à se maintenir au pouvoir en #Russie. Car il sait qu'il ne peut pas se permettre de le perdre. La fin tragique de Mouammar Kadhafi l'a profondément marqué !" @douglaslondon5

Just finished reading Andrei P. Frolov's book "#KGB and the Art of Counterintelligence: A Perspective on CI Theory from the Inside" published in Moscow in 2003.

This book hasn't been translated into English, so I decided to share some of my notes in the thread below.
Andrei Frolov was a KGB colonel who spent most of his career teaching at the Higher School of the KGB in Moscow (today's #FSB Academy). Considered to be one of the top KGB experts on counterintel theory, he authored several (still classified) training manuals on the subject.
Frolov's book is mostly autobiographical. I wouldn't say the book is very revealing, but it does provide an inside view of the educational dynamics and debates at the Higher School not found in any other published account.

Russian cultural institutions raise eyebrows in Western counterintelligence. Not without reason. They are seen as a gateway for #SVR #GRU and #FSB. The A.S. Pouchkine Cultural Centre 32, rue Goethe in Luxembourg is also suspected of espionage. A few interesting details 1/10
In an undated interview, former Rossotrudnichestvo official Tatiana Poloskova criticises the cultural institution's involvement with intelligence services. Poloskova is a political analyst and state advisor of the Russian Federation. She knows Putin's power apparatus 2/10
Tatiana Poloskova: "Everyone knows that they are from the #FSB. Of course, no one wants to say that, but in the host countries this label is firmly attached to them. I think this is not so much the result of propaganda as a mistake in our personnel policy“ 3/10

Was passiert bei RT Sputnik Berlin FM aka @berlinerzeitung ? In meinem ersten Thread ging ich auf die aktuelle Gesamtlage des Medienhauses ein; dieser Thread jedoch hat e.anderen Fokus:
Der Einfluss russischer Militaergeheimdienste in 🇩🇪anno 2022.
🧵1/ 👇
Es kamen so viele interessante Infos zu Berliner Zeitung und ihren Herausgebern von der Twitter-Community zusammen,dass rasch feststand: ein zweiter Teil muss her.
Weil dieser jedoch sehr umfangreich ausfallen wuerde, beschloss ich, zunaechst kleinere Broetchen zu backen.
Eigentlich wollte ich als kleineres Update das Interview d.Berliner Zeitung mit dem russ. Staatsbeamten Pavel Izvolskiy sezieren,dem Direktor d. Russischen Hauses/Berlin.Dort geht es im Kern darum,dass RHB das Kriegsgeschehen ausblendet, u.d. "Russkij Mir"-Agenda weiterfaehrt

Ciekawe wiadomości pochodzą z #Telegram kanałów #Abchazja i #Osetia / #Samachablo

Jak mówią, bardzo duża liczba lokalnych mieszkańców jest obowiązkowo wysyłana na #Ukraina w ramach „częściowej mobilizacji”. „Nie ma nikogo, kto by nas bronił” – pisze mieszkaniec #Cchinwali 🧵
„Mamy więcej strat na mieszkańca niż inne regiony #Rosja”;

Kilku żołnierzy z 4. bazy (obwód Cchinwali) zostało schwytanych na #Ukraina. Jak mówią: „cała baza i personel wojskowy są prawie zniszczone”
Problemem #Abchazja jest brak uzbrojonego personelu i liczba żołnierzy 7. bazy w Gudauti. 

Kolejną kwestią jest bardzo mała i słabo wyszkolona armia, która ma #Abchazja. „Nasze wojsko nie ma szans z dobrze wyszkoloną i bardziej doświadczoną armią #Gruzja, wspieraną przez #NATO.”

Die Explosion auf der #Krimbrücke ein Racheakt der #Wagner-Gruppe?

Diese Theorie äußert zumindest die ukrainische Regierung. Machtkämpfe im Hibtergrund werden vermutet. #FSB + #Wagner gegen das Verteidigungsministerium.…
Demnach sei die Explosion ein Racheakt der #Wagner-Gruppe, nachdem deren Propagandist verhaftet wurde.
Es ist auffällig, dass das Video veröffentlicht wurde. Ich vermute, dass es eine Warnung an jeden Kritiker ist. Niemand sollte sich zu sicher fühlen.

Wenn #Putin sich genötigt fühlt, dieses Zeichen zu setzen, muss er unter großem Druck stehen.
Er muss abgewägt haben, zwischen

Happy Birthday #Putin, you genocidal, evil little man who ordered this beautiful, brave women murdered for exposing your genocide, rape and murder in #Chechnya. Her murder was your birthday present.
Your present will outlive you in admiration, respect, celebration. Today we celebrate Anna #Politkovskaya. #Russian woman of more bravery than your whole horde of barbarians or cowardly citizens. You want something to admire about Russia? Admire their heroes they murdered.
2 weeks after you murdered her, you murdered through radioactive material former #FSB officer Alexander #Litvinenko for naming you as Anna’s killer. You had no regard for how many people in England you exposed to radioactive substance to kill this man.…

Absolute total lie. Is #Putin getting nervous that his birthday is coming in two days and his last big present was assassination of Anna #Politkovskaya? We did not do this, this is why:

1. #Ukraine has never #assassinated anyone. Russia assassinates people all over world.
2. Ukraine has no ability for surveillance inside Russia to do this kind of thing. I wish we did and we would be justified. But we don’t.
3. If we had such capability. We would not waste it on #Nazi #Dugina. Although she would deserve it. We would target important military or intelligences person. Gray Cardinal would be my choice if I had any authority or ability. It would be justified.

I successfully penetrated their CRM/client database, which is referenced by the network in order to send/receive messages. We were unable to download the DB and they were monitoring it regularly, so we made the decision to destroy it, which we accomplished without detection. 2/ ImageImageImageImage

I’ve gotten a lot of questions this week about #YevgenyPrigozhin’s public statement about his role as founder of the #WagnerGroup.The incoming is almost too much to handle so I thought I’d lay down a few thoughts here for journalists and other interested parties. 🧵 Image
1/#Prigozhin has had a kind of coming out party over the last few weeks with the buzz surrounding the release of a video showing him making a recruiting pitch to prisoners in a #Russian penal colony. The timing is, of course, curious. Image
2/We can get into the significance of the fact that the prison pictured is in the Mari El Republic in a separate thread--but suffice it to say there are a lot of stakeholders w/ overlapping interests co-located there. Image

One of the possible escalation scenarios in the next weeks or months is a repetition, on larger scale, of the 1999 apartment bombings that brought #Putin his first presidency in 2000-2004. /2
In September 1999, the #FSB blew up four residential buildings in #Moscow, #Volgodonsk and #Buinaksk thereby killing about 300 #Russian civilians. /3

Ci sono diverse fonti in #Russia (sia colleghi analisti che persone comuni) che ritengono che la mobilitazione parziale (i famosi 300.000) sia soltanto la prima fase della mobilitazione totale delle riserve #RussiaUkraineWar ⬇️
Secondo loro, il #Cremlino potrebbe votare di mobilitare circa 1 milione di uomini nei prossimi mesi, approfittando dell'inverno per "aggiornare" il loro livello di addestramento.
Rimangono però alcuni dubbi: 1- la sostenibilità logistica della mobilitazione sul campo di battaglia ; 2 - la sostenibilità economica interna della mobilitazione ; 3 - la sostenibilità politica e sociale (le proteste e le diserzioni)

Came across an interesting document from the
Financial Stability Board in 2019

Pay attention to the FSB if you are involved with crypto as they are an important Standard Setting Body (SSB)

Das v dem russ. Exparlamentarier Ilya Ponomarjow präsentierte Bekenntnis einer Nationalen Republikanischen Armee zur Ermordung v Darja #Dugina könnte durchaus eine Maskirowska, also eine Maskierung durch den russ. Inlandsgeheimdienst #FSB sein. Dann stellt sich die Frage, was 👇🏼
der FSB mit der Tat bezweckte u wem sie galt, Tochter o Vater. Doch was welches Interesse anderes hätte der FSB an seinem/ihren Tod als einen potentiellen Einflüsterer v #Putin auszuschalten, sprich die Kontrolle über Putins Umfeld zu bewahren? Zudem könnte FSB zum Ziel haben. 👇🏼
den in der Provinz aktiven militanten Widerstand in den Augen der russ. TV-Publikums als heimtückische Bande zu diskreditieren, die ganz im Stil einer Tschetschenenmafia selbst vor Mord an „Patrioten“ nicht zurückschreckt. Störbild allerdings ist die Professionalität der Tat.
