Aleksei Navalny, Russian Opposition Leader, Appears in Court

"In the Russian capital. Moscow has ordered the opposition activist Aleksei Navalny, to serve more than 2.5 years of a jail term for embezzlement. Mr. Navalny had earlier launched a blistering attack on President Putin. As our correspondent at the court, Sarah Rainsford reports he's being detained, repeatedly prosecuted several times at last year, Aleksei Navalny was poisons. Now the Russian opposition leader is going to jail. He greeted the news in court with a resigned shrug. That's not what I said earlier from a glass cage Alexander family had condemned this latest move against him as a show trial meant to scare millions of Russians, he said to crush dissent. He spoke like a man with nothing left to fear. After shooting death by poisoning. Last year, Mr Navalny mocked Russia's president, and claimed he'd given the order to have his rival killed. People will buy. Vladimir Putin wants to be known as a great world leader, Aleksei Navalny said. So he's upset that he'll now go down in history. As Vladimir the poisoner of the underpants, Mr Navalny believes a nerve agent was smeared in his underwear by Russian security service agents. Mr Putin has said the FSB had nothing to do with it.

Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny

"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

"Using this chemical weapon toe do both. Kill me and, you know, terrify others. But where's the evidence? How could anyone be sure that the Kremlin was behind the poisoning? That's where crystal grows of comes in. He's the lead investigative journalist with Belling Cat in 2018. He identified the two Russian military intelligence agents behind the assassination of Sergei Script Ball. Ah, former Russian spy But cracking the novel in case this seemed like a much tougher challenge. Initially, we waited a few weeks and didn't even look at this case because they thought, what are the chances we can get sufficient data from within Russia grows if teamed up with a group of five media organizations, and they started their investigation by looking at the poison itself. Based on an earlier report rose if says that they knew Russia was still producing the nerve agent Na'vi Chuck. We have been able to identify the that were Russia currently upgrades its original novel job. We had the phone records of the key researchers and we were able to look at whom they called it around the time of the poisoning of Navalny, he says. They identified call patterns the times and the frequency of the calls and then linked those phone numbers with Russian intelligence personnel from the FSB. That's the main successor of the KGB. And here comes the actual breaking point in our investigation where I got the names, and I put them in a leak database of airplane records, and we found out in 2017. These FSB officers in groups of two or three had tailed Alex Sandoval Me. On more than 37 flights. Those FSB officers started tracking him then and continued to do so right into 2020. These officers never flew on the same flight that Nirvana did, but usually on the previous flight before his flight, and on the next one after that, in order to avoid being identified after so many joining destinations with him grows, even his team concluded based on their evidence that the plan was to poison Navalny. They identified the FSB agents tasked with operation. No alternative explanation could just define explain the close, tailing by chemical weapons experts and by doctors of Navalny, plus the peaks and communication just before and after these trips that tailed navalny. The Belling Cat investigation was published two weeks ago. Couple of days After that, President Putin was scheduled to host one of his marathon press conferences. And, of course he was asked about it. If you could put the city in Italy get.

Navalny releases recording of call to his alleged poisoner

"Allegedly involved in the attempt to kill Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has apparently confessed to his role in the plot. NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, Navalny has posted the audio of a phone call with an alleged operative who is seemingly duped into thinking he was talking to an aide with Russia's Security Council. Recording has not been independently verified, innit Navalny posing as the fictional aid prodded the operative for details of the operation, demanding to know what went wrong. Alleged operative, in turn, confirmed the FSB was behind the poisoning and said his colleagues had applied the Soviet era nerve agent Nova shock to the inner seems of Navalny's boxer shorts while he was staying at a hotel in Siberia. Two days later, Navalny war the poisoned underwear and later collapsed on an airplane before being taken to Germany for treatment where he's still recuperating. Rob

"He told where they put boys and he told why they failed to Truman Barley. Accepted, etcetera, so just run through it with me, Roman. What did this agent from the FSB Constantine could rat save? What did he tell Navalny on the phone? So the most important parts are That we know how they use the poison. So they put it in inner side off his fence. How we call it. Underwear underwear? Yeah, because they needed it to be on his body. So we know this because this person could have said he was responsible for cleaning this poison from his clothes. So he mentioned exact but that he was supposed to clear so could rats have asserted to navalny on the phone? That of the pilot had not landed the plane to attend to a sick election of only the operation would have succeeded. Didn't the agent also tell me only that he was sent after the fact to Get rid of evidence. Yeah, We knew it from the very beginning. That could be after went toe bones where nobody was in the hospital already after nobody left for Germany. To get rid off the evidence, so he was used as a person to make the cleanup. Roman. The reputation Russian intelligence generally has is they're smart. They're skeptical. They're kind of Wiley. How did Navalny get this FSB agent to talk well, first of all of his base of very, very big organization that thousands and thousands off people with very different level off intelligence. Some of them are very clever and experienced. People are very cautious, and some of them are very dumb People who believe in absolutely Bs, conspiracy theories that even Small Children wouldn't believe And so we don't know about this concrete people. What is the level off experience and education? But I think that's still there. Very Well trained in comparison with most off FSB officers because most of them are just making paperwork or working the regions, But these people told them and doctors Two of them are experts on chemical weapons. One off them is trained in special force unit. I also would expect some professionals from them. But you know when, when you have group off eight people, usually at least one of them would make a very silly mistake, especially in the very, very stressful situation. Because this is extremely stressful situation. I bet this is the biggest operation that they ever had, and they failed it. And now they think that put his main chef off intelligence part herself needs some report. So, of course, in this very stressful situation. I think they can easily make some stupid mistake like speaking on it open line, and we saw things like this happening before. Well right now. Navalny is still recovering in Germany. But he said many times that it plans to return to Russia as soon as he's better. Now you've got proof of what happened to him at the hands, it seems of the Russian government. So how do you think Russian people will respond when he returns? Well, The epidemiological situation is very bad in Russia, especially when winter started off course in a lot of people want to risk too. Gather in the cross. So I think that people there now feeling more and more aggressive against all this Putin's activities and I'm pretty sure that we will see very big protests next year. But not right now.

Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny dupes spy into revealing how he was poisoned - CNN

"Russian spy unwittingly revealed how Russian agents nearly killed opposition leader Alexei Navalny back in August when they placed the lethal nerve agent Nova shock inside Navalny's underpants. Even stranger. The spy disclosed that detail to navalny himself who was Impersonating a high ranking Russian official on the phone. CNN's Cloris Award broke this story in collaboration with the investigative outlet Belling Cat and Dirt Spiegel, and she joins us via Skype. Claressa welcome. Thank you so much for having me on Peter, and let's start with a little more context. Here. Back in August, Navalny was flying to Moscow from the city of Tomsk when he became very ill on the airplane, And here he is recounting that moment. To you. Let's listen. I get out of this bus room tone over to the flight attendant and said him I was poisoned. I'm gonna dive and then then I lay down under his feet in tow to die. So the pilot then diverted the plane to the Russian city of Omsk Navalny survived. He's now in Germany. But tell us what you learned about the days and hours leading up to that moment on the airplane. I mean, you know, it's just been extraordinary to get this kind of insight into how an elite team of FSB Russian State Security service operatives With a specialty in chemical weapons, many of them doctors, scientists operating out of the UN remarkable Moscow suburb were able to essentially trail Navalny's every move for more than three years. Then, as you said in August, Navalny became very sick on the way back from Tomsk on this flight, and the Germans once he was able to be transported to Germany confirmed that he had been poisoned with not be chock. We now know that that Na'vi chalk was planted. In Navalny's underpants If you can believe that, Wow, What is that? Details say to you. So we spoke to a lot of experts about this to try toe understand it better both from the point of view of understanding whether the intention was to kill or possibly just incapacitate. And by the way, all of them agree. You can only really be looking to kill when you're using Na'vi chalk outside of a laboratory. But also to get a better sense of why would they put Nova Chuck in the underpants? And particularly this one operative describes in this now famous phone call to Alexei Navalny were Navalny was posing as a senior national security aide conducting an investigation into the operation. He tells him. Listen, we put it on the underwear on the inside seems of the crotch area and experts Have told us that the groin area is particularly porous, particularly susceptible. This kind of poisoning, So they certainly knew what they were doing it as you say It was navalny himself, who was able to coax these details out of this agent who was a part of this toxins team. Why didn't have only do that? How did Navalny do that? So when I was in Moscow last week with my team, we all set about trying to confront some of the people that through this investigation with Belling cat we have been able to identify as part of this FSB toxins team. Then they landed on this idea of pretending to be someone high up within the Russian hierarchy, and they were able to disguise Phone number they were using to make it look like they were calling from an FSB landline. And if you listen to the conversation, it's it's something like 45 minutes long. It does take a while to persuade this operative his name is constant included. It's if he graduated from the Russian Academy of Chemical Defense. It does take him a while to be persuaded that it's OK for him to have this conversation on an open line. With navalny, But once he starts talking boy, does he start talking? Well. Vladimir Putin himself has said that if his agents wanted to kill navalny, they would have done it. So what do you make of that reaction in Russia? About how high up this operation went in the government? Well, I mean, this puts the Kremlin in an extraordinarily embarrassing and uncomfortable position because just last week, President Putin, responding to our reporting, said, What's the big deal? So what the FSB were following Navalny? That's normal because he works with us intelligence services. That doesn't mean they poisoned him. Well, fast forward just a few days, And here we are with concrete evidence that in fact, that team of operatives who were following him did poison him. And so how on earth does the Kremlin go about wriggling out of this one, Essentially I will say that unlike last week where it was much more silent, and the Russian media and people weren't really talking about it, perhaps because they were fearful this time, people are starting to talk about it. We've already seen Russian journalist trying to go to the address off. This could threats at this operative who unwittingly confessed to Alexei Navalny. And I think it's going to be very difficult for the Russian government to put this genie back in the bottle. Just briefly, Claressa. It is amazing to see you sitting there in front of Alexei Navalny, who had gone through such a tremendously traumatic ordeal on this airplane getting poison. He's been a thorn in the side of Vladimir Putin for many years. It's amazing that he's still alive. How is his health? How's he doing? He has made nothing short of a miraculous recovery, and all of his doctors say the same thing. What is even more extraordinary is that Alexei Navalny is still planning to go back to Russia. He says. He's a Russian politician. He belongs in Russia, and he would never give Putin such a gift, he

"Systems. Likely the systems you use today. Learn more at avelar dot com slash talking. So what if. There was a usb mike that also let record at the same time. I think it sounds like a pretty good idea. So does david brown. He's got a new. My call the tula mike It's a two for one. It does double duty and he is talking to us from barcelona spain. David how you doing all right. Tell me why you invented this microphone. Well initially it was. Because of the explosion of content creators people making podcasts and having youtube channels and that type of thing. I wanted to create something that enabled those people to to get good audio easily Even if they are audio professionals and i thought it would be cool if it were a device that could record when you're away from your studio or away from your you know a bedroom studio or whatever. It is out in out in the field that can function as a mobile recorder as well. Okay right now. I could buy a lot of bikes plug directly into the iphone and have pretty good pretty good sound with them Intake the take that with me anywhere or have a usb mic on my desk. So to me after. I've just told you that you would say what well i would say. That the tula the a few things number one. The tula is is a kind of all in one solution. Instead of having one. Mike that plugs into your iphone in another fund that you have on your desk at home it covers all those bases and we like to think that it covers it better than than all of those put together and it looks really nice already. You should tell everybody about two to at a place in russia to our from moscow. What inspired you to To to to name it after this cook you know area of russia. And and and i believe you allow your engineers are in russia. Tell us about the russia connection well. The russia connections is kind of a hot topic. These days. I have a band called brazzaville and were oddly popular in russia. So i've toured extensively in russia for many years and Back in the ninety s in la. I bought a pair of octaves from Guitar center back when they were the first condenser mics. That were sort of affordable and i used him for years and one of the times. When i was on tour. I thank god. I wonder we're up toddlers located. So i looked it up. Sure enough. it's in. This town called tula which i had never heard of before in about a week later i was playing a gig in In cross nar this guy came up to me after the show. And he's like oh man. I'm a big fan. I wonder if you'd ever planned my hometown. Oh we're tula. And i said could you get me a you know a tour of the octave factory. He's like well. I'll try and he had to get special. Fsb permission and all of this military facility long story short. We got the idea to start at first. We were going to partner with taba to make like a kind of high end version of what they do. But in the end that was way too complicated and we ended up just founding our own microphone company which became soyuz. So let's back up a little bit. You're used to live in los angeles. Yes you live. You live in barcelona now okay. And you make microphones in russia to. How does that all get. How put that all together for me. I have a lot of airline miles. Well i grew up in la like right actually in la unlike most people who tell you they grew up in la grew up. Like basically in downtown wilshire and fairfax even more. like i. Like the koreatown. You know hoover in third and around there but i lived there for for most of my life and then about seventeen years ago. I just had this idea to move to barcelona just mostly because it just seemed like a good idea and It was a great idea as it turns out. I've never regretted it okay. So you're living barcelona and you fly on air flow aeroflot's to moscow Three times a week or three times a month or sadly not this year but last year. How often were you going all. I would go at least once a month. I would say and I know moscow really. Well i love russia immensely. It's beautiful country. With incredible people gets a really bad rap.

DOJ won't reveal congressional candidate who asked for, received hacked info on their opponent

"With less than 100 days before the presidential election. U. S intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries are once again interfering in our democratic process. In 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his intelligence agencies to create chaos in our system, using a combination of social media manipulation, propaganda and other dirty tricks. President. Trump's Justice Department currently has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for disrupting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. As we first reported last November, 12 Russian military officers are still at large, charged with breaking into the Democratic Party's computers in 2016. Stealing compromising information and selectively releasing it to undermine specific candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election's just around the corner. Ah cautionary tale, the Russian hack. The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016. After this all into news. They never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing. This wasn't just a one time thing. No way. Russia doesn't do it that way. Robert Anderson should know. He spent 21 years inside the cloak and dagger world of spies and hackers overseeing the FBI's counterintelligence and cyber divisions. And tracking Moscow spy agencies, an alphabet of artifice, the FSB S V, R, and especially the G R U G. RU is military intelligence. So when we look at the attacks that happened during a presidential Races in 2016. You had military organisations inside of Russia attacking our infrastructure. So are the hackers or are the soldiers? So they're both on in most cases in most these units or not just hackers. They're probably some of the best mathematical minds in Russia. These air seasoned professionals that have worked away up the ranks to be in these units. To carry out the strategic attacks on behalf of that country. These are the hacker soldiers from G R U unit 26165, who, according to the Justice Department were responsible for breaking and entering into the Democratic Party's computers remotely from Moscow. Their names, ranks and faces are now on the FBI's most wanted list for stealing, among other things, the Democrats, strategic plans detailed targeting data and internal polling. G R U Colonel Alexander also joke commanded a separate unit. 744551 of his officers was in charge of spreading this stolen material to political operatives, bloggers and the media. Another hack state election boards. It wasn't some £400 guy in his parents Basement. No, this was a well choreographed military operation. With units that not only were set up specifically to hack into obtain information, but other units that were used for psychological warfare or weaponizing that this is not an operation that was just put together haphazardly. So that was the 26165 unit. The Justice Department's National security division is overseeing the Russian hacking case once they're doing that keystroke monitoring, Assistant Attorney General John Dimmers runs the division. Along with the deputies, Adam Hickey and Sean knew DOJ attorney Heather Al Pino worked with special counsel Mueller on the Russian indictments all have access to the underlying intelligence and have no doubt the rush. Shins interfered in the 2016 election. This really happened. Yes, that really happened. And we believe that if we had to, we could prove that in court tomorrow, using only admissible non classified evidence to 12 jurors. You ever expect to get the 12 Russian officials The trial. I would be surprised, But the purpose of the indictment isn't just that, although that's certainly one of the purposes, the purposes of this kind of indictment is even, uh, to educate the public. For a legal document. The 29 page indictment is a page Turner It. Details how U. S intelligence agencies tracked each defendant's actions, sometimes by the keystroke, revealing the fictitious names and phony emails used to infiltrate the Democrats, computers. And tracing the stolen data on its circuitous route from Washington, D. C. To Moscow. The information in the indictment is very detailed. You have descriptions of the Russian agents. Typing. Into their computers. Obviously, I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to reveal investigative methods. But the inside here is that behind every one of those Keyboard's is not night P address. It's a human being those indicted G R U agents. The U. S. Says one team, working out of a building in Moscow called the Tower created a website and a provocative character to disseminate this stolen material. Lucifer 2.0 So goose over 2.0 is a fictional online persona. It's all an effort. The Russian side to hide their involvement. And these guys are pretending to be one lone hacker. Correct, and that works. What it gives them is plausible deniability. Right. They don't need to work 100% as long as the Russians, Khun say. Wasn't us. Posing as goose A for 2.0. The Russians offered up stolen documents to Julian Assange, Jas wiki leaks and self proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone. It was all part of a broad campaign to disrupt the presidential election. But there was another less well known part of the Russian operation to undermine Democrats running for Congress. It started as large document dumps where goose for 2.0 was kind of taunting and saying, I have more Kelli Ward Burton was executive director of the D. Triple C. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When the Russians hacked the committee's computers, these bullet points at the top are the summary for how we need to win. They swiped and dumped on the Internet material, she told us cost millions of dollars to produce. Battle plans for congressional races, demographic research on voters and extensive dossiers on the weaknesses of their own candidates. So when we deliberate internally about anything, you know that's not intended to be made public, and that's what makes this so important to understand these as stolen documents. It's not different than Watergate. It's not different than When Republicans came into the DNC and stole documents from the file cabinets. It's the cyber version of that they came into our office and they stole Our documents. Documents were never intended to be public. And then they used that in the election, even Democrat party bosses or questioning his character. Ward was shocked when Republicans used the stolen internal materials in this negative ad. We reach out to them and ask them, you know, we way, said We've been the victims of a cyber attack by a foreign adversary. Will you make a commitment not to use any of these stolen materials in In the campaigner in the 2016 election, and they wouldn't make a commitment to do so, she says. In the months leading up to the elections, Russian tactics evolved, the indiscriminate document dumps became more frequent and strategic. There would be thousands of documents that would show up on one day and then they got smarter and he started to really specific documents. Related to our specific races or documents that were in art most targeted states and are most targeted areas.

Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny in grave but stable condition after suspected poisoning

"Alexei Navalny, the face of Russia's opposition, a lawyer, a politician and a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Today, Navalny isn't an intensive care unit in Siberia. Suspected of poisoning reporter Charles Mains joins us from Moscow Charles How did all this play out and hasn't been established? That someone did indeed. Try to poison navalny? Well, it's still a developing story. And as far as whether you indeed was poisoned or not, is still an open theory, depending on who you talk to. We do know that he was fine home from Tomsk in Siberia back to Moscow. Along the flight. He didn't feel well, which prompted an emergency landing in Omsk not to be confused with Tomsk. Navarone now is actually in a medically induced coma on a respirator at the hospital there. Doctors say he's in serious but stable condition, although their quote fighting for his life Also lets his wife Julia, and his personal doctor now there's well that there were reports have some delays in getting access to Navalny initially with lots of police on the scene, So how did this happen? Have you heard any theories? Will his spokesperson I care? Young. Bush made comments to media here. So she says he just drank some black tea at the airport before the flight, and it's obvious that he was poisoned at that moment. Idea here being that hot liquid was more likely to absorb quickly into his body. You know, In fact, a passenger named Pavel Lebedev took a photo of navalny sitting at the cafe in the airport before he got on the flight. He appeared to be drinking tea and later the two of them ended up on that same flight. Andi. It's interesting that some point heat this level have noticed Howl's coming from the laboratory realized that the cries were coming from Navalny, and he ended up detail ing all this in a post to social media once he touched down in arms. So that was at the airport. What else can you tell us about the suspected poisoning? Is there any talk of a possible suspect or suspects or or a motive? No suspects yet certainly know among Navalny supporters. They find this to be no accident. Not surprising. They think it's politically motivated. Navalny has made his fair share of enemies with Siri's reports on corruption in the highest rungs of the Russian government and off Russian business. He's certainly been attacked numerous times before, including in 2017, when provocateurs doused him with a green dye that partially blinded him for a period. Then again in 2019 when he was exposed to some toxic substance while serving a month prison term, which caused some skin lesions, But he made it. Okay on course, there's this troubling pattern of enemies or perceived enemies. Of the Russian state being poisoned, Attacked, sometimes killed, you know in this prompts this constant debate here over who's really behind them, and specifically whether Vladimir Putin really gains from these brazen attacks on his opponents, and that the Kremlin says they're designed to make Putin look bad, and I want to bring in another voice here. This is Andre Kalashnikov, an analyst with the Moscow Carnegie Center here. Even if Kremlin doesn't know anything involved Squad Strange because it means that this kind of events are uncontrollable. FSB local If his B Saman emus off, no one could do it. Without essentially from Kremlin Now. The other option, says Kalashnikovs that the's orders or indeed, coming from the top from Putin. The point is, we can suspect but never seem to really know and interesting enough. The reaction to today's news from the Kremlin spokesman Was to wish Navalny speedy recovery reporter Charles Mains in Moscow. Thank you very much for this.

"United Kingdom independence party got the most members this time for years ago, which was very shocking and a great embarrassment to us that we send a lot of ignoramuses people who had no knowledge of politics view, it to be abusive in the European parliament to be incredibly rude to officials to politicians that a real environment is a representation of this country, and it may happen again. May be the remains will get it together to get out the vote to vote for moderate for the labor rule. Conservative pros remaining people. Well, obviously, it's one of the great ironies again is that just only a couple of days after Donald Trump was elected in transition in Trump Tower the first visitors among the festivus were Najah garage and Aaron banks the so-called insurance magnate whose Russian life catch up per Drina is alleged to be a conduit for FSB money because banks was the biggest donor to the leave campaign. And she of course, but Reno was. Essentially, an FSB prostitute who has booted out of the Emirates. So there's a whole level of sleaze in this thing, it seems like a whole bunch of bottom feeders came forth. And as you mentioned, they lied to the public that didn't tell them what the consequences of leave were is any any less, chickens coming home to roost. Well, certainly they've been fine. Not very considerable fine by the electoral commission has for misuse of funds and lying about fun in the course of the campaign, but the electoral commission didn't think it'd been enough to seriously affect the result will probably right about that. But nobody knows where banks called the eight million pounds donated to believe campaign. It's a murky and mysterious world, but the truth is is a large slice of the conservative party who will not side too. So it'd be a fairly marginal thing if it was just said. But today a hundred and seventy members of conservative members of parliament re Theresa May to say they want a new deal crush out. They want to break the Good Friday agreement to set up a barrier across the Irish border that isn't an number of people willing to do something with his in legal and dangerous and you'll have terrible consequences. The conservative party has itself. Been infiltrated to a large degree by people. Who would never have been conservatives say twenty twenty five years ago? Those being a a big news of extreme breaks. His he is to join the policy and decided kind of as a result. I didn't think hardly any moderate conservatives have been selected as members of parliament for the last fifteen years it's been impossible to be selected in by a local party for local constituency, unless you all the most extreme hard person, not has changed the nature and character of the policy considerably, and it guarantees that Theresa my stepson. She certainly will by Mexico Simba, whoever will be very hard. But today because liberty of could be elected as neither the conservative party by the very small, but. Very extreme members of the conservative party in the constituency who are the ones in the end to get to choose the next leader. And in this case to the next prime minister, first of all we have no say just in closing police tone and be is there a an analogy here, or at least a compassion with what's happened to conservatism here in the United States. It's been captured by the far right populist movement that Donald Trump represents. And of course, Donald Trump got five to six billion dollars worth of free advertising from the media in in. What was the Republican primaries where in fact, a reality TV show where he knocked everybody off the island, but essentially the Jeb Bush's this weld failed to stop him. And now traditional conservatives in the in the United States are an endangered species. Is that something similar happened there with these kind of private school boy's attorney types like Cameron who came? Came up with this ridiculous. Brexit thing in the first place is that their failure. That it's allowed these Brexit. Tears to seize the conservative party. I think yes, I think so I think it's been going for a long time. It seems slowly creeping up this Brexit idea. That was at first regarded as very marginal and a fringe activity. Ago is when Joe major was prime minister, they were handful of people who drive him crazy, but they were only a handful of the party, and they have just gradually grown and grown. And and as you say in the the traditional part of the conservative party has just failed and stuff it happening. They given into them time and time again each concession saying. Well, this time this and the piece them nothing appeases of no Brexit will ever be hard enough for that nothing will be hard enough for them. So Cameron he with a tease them by having a referendum that he is. He would win. He he is a peaceable Cameron pulled the conservatives out to the moderate conservative group in the European parliament where they're not true home for conservatives would have been with Angela Merkel and the powerful conservative and put the and created a new extreme group simply again to appease the exchanges Suzanne party. It was a crazy thing to do. So each time they give into them the far-right wins and wins. Again, it's not exactly the same as the fall rights in the United States. It doesn't have a particularly socially conservative element. You know, it's not exercise by abortion issues or gay rights issues or things of that kind. It has a monomania about Europe and into that goes the whole of what is it to be British? What is our identity? How do we move away? Saves again, fantasies of Unpa if we could strike our trade agreements say with Donald Trump. With the Australian we'd be great again and independent. It's all nonsense. We will never come to a trade agreement with the Americans. It will be impossible. Donald Trump will make impossible the mom, but we went be able to meet, but that's the fantasy. And I think it is a fantasy of the sort of recreate the old and pilot Zealand Australia, Canada, the whites the whites had and somehow that puts us back in the driving seat. What we'll find need it. It'd be stopped. Because is that we of a week of all of those when it comes to negotiating well polyethylene being I thank you very much for joining us. I I wish we had something positive to say, but. Hell probably that in a year about hell. And at the end of this. It's not the end still because this is a new phase one. We then have a lonely go see ageing process of what exactly our relationship with your. We'll be and I think that's what people don't realize in this country. They get it over with. But it never gonna be over with. Well, again, Tony. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you.

"He's not all there so once the soviet union fell his first job in the new russia was as well he went from me a kgb officer to being the head the head of the new kgb known as the fsb kgb to the fsb fsb that surfer stands for federal security service of the russian federation the primary functions of the fsb are one counterintelligence to internal and border security three counterterrorism enforcer valence now the fsb is primarily a agency the works internally so when i talk about surveillance and when i talk about counterintelligence that's their surveilling their own people he of that happens in russia and it's not a secret that's a key difference between russia and us and you know it's so funny because i have friends here in new york city i mean obviously new york city is a melting pot you truly do meet people from everywhere all over the world and i have a lot of friends from russia and it's funny because on got i've never i'm not sitting here professing this stuff as if i really newest hall because i've stuck audited through the years and i could have told you all these things any time over the past ten years and if you don't know this will you're just dumb no i mean i didn't know most of this stuff as a three days ago and that's too bad and i think back on conversations i had with russian friends of mine truly people who literally are only here for a few months they still live in russia and it's very interesting and kind of odd to talk to them and when i think back on certain conversations we had i don't really think they know what exactly is going on in their own government i really don't and that's not by accident putin doesn't want them to know putin doesn't want them to know because when they find out they don't like it as he found out the hard way so that's his first job in the new russia was head of the fsb so lottery putin knows a thing or two when it comes to cybersecurity surveillance counterterrorism and all that crap which came in very handy when a wider no.

"Big issue because putin was before that the head of the fsb and had a long career in the fsb um as a young man and until he basically became the head of state in russia but where does you know what's the bigger picture here how does the russian state to dander putin to think about intelligence services intelligence operations does domestic surveillance fit and to all of this what's the problem here is putin he loves to present himself a direct successor to drop off million that on drop off hours long staying in chief off the kgb and then he was promoted to be head of the state but no was before yeltsin yes it was actually in into oda ages the fingers of at uh actually it's not true because a drop off was not a train at kgb guy he looked he was not a training kgb officer he was a political appointees give us actually an official at the communist party sand buys a political party buzzer communist budget to oversee uh as a kgb as he became a director of the kgb but essentially by his train he was a political guy but with putin very first time in our history we have a guy who is a train at security agent and he is head of the state which means that when he speak to his security services there is no gap there is no distance at all they shows the same mentality is a say because you to says the same background may speak the same language vase speaking in the language of france and actually fuel look at the way putin speaks about since to things like for example all the development of the internet he c the internet and dumps of france first of all get actually he he talks about.
