"And all of the mellow drama that happened during the Cold War and the thank goodness the Soviet Union is gone and all that spying is over with except if you really believe that think again our guest is Gordon Carrera security correspondent for BBC news and Gordan does thank you for being with us tonight thank you very much for having me off he has written the book Russians among us which is published by William Morrow subtitles sleeper cells ghost stories and the hunt for Putin's spies again next Putin's spies as in post Soviet Union although one thing that I've always noted about of Latimer pollutant that he works for attribution by do this was not some off the cuff remark that that haunted him but this was for attribution to reporters that he looked back on the twentieth century think about that the twentieth century and considered the worst event of the twentieth century to be the fall of the Soviet Union this is a man with an incredible nostalgic for some terrible evil in my opinion Gordan he was a KGB officer who saw the collapse of the Soviet Union as it is off to your right T. store it has the greatest catastrophe because he sort of having weakened Russian undermined Russia and he's made a these missions he's the he's looking in the lights work to try to restore Russia to that position and spying is central to what he does is central to his identity and it's central to how he wants to restore Russia to its position now the collapse of the Soviet Union and it's hard to realize that but that's been twenty nine years now of acting more like a little over twenty eight that had to happen sometime ago there are certain things of course said that did that disappeared the just simply fell into into the cage the Soviet navy for awhile there was in pretty sad shape although I gather they've been resurrecting that certainly Marxist Leninist economics evo Gonda been replaced more or less I suppose but what you could call gangster capitalism of some sort but other things I guess didn't entirely go away and I would suppose the old KGB spy apparatus didn't entirely wither away did it no and I think that's really where I just don't like the kids actually back in August nineteen ninety one when it's a coup in the Soviet Union it looks like everything's collapsed collapsing for a brief moment the the western intelligence operate the offices operating in Moscow from the C. I. A. from Britain's MI six see the surveillance teams from the KGB disappear I'm not loss precisely three days that's how long it is three days his three day during the full they all back call NATO watching them and following them and I give you a site reaches how old there was actually enormous continuity despite the Soviet Union ending it turning them part of into Russia the Cold War county ending but actually the spying world just continued some of the names change the KGB disappeared it became the XP on the foreign intelligence services yeah speech that investing security service bought the kind of dedication to keep doing what they have been doing really did continue now since then things have changed some of the methods but they respect continuity I think you can see in some of that message you can see by the minute preaching himself who was called by that experience of watching those communist regimes collapse enough here now there are certain realities of life and one of them is that nations have their own interests and those don't always coincide with even the friendliest other country and the fact is that despite the V. by eve words of I think it was an American about a century ago the gentleman don't read other gentleman's mail the fact is that they do and they pretty much always have and this is just a fact of life and soul of the notion that that Russia which of course did not disappear the Soviet Union disappeared Russia is still there and then despite how weak it was of the inherent weaknesses of that system rib retains of course a huge number of of nuclear weapons the delivery systems and the like and I suppose it's not surprising that the apparatus itself would stay in effect that though certainly even with the fall of the Soviet Union the the Russians in the United States we're never going to totally coincide on a point of view and therefore knowing what the other side was up to would that would be vital so is is what we saw coming out of the death of the Soviet Union in terms of intelligence was that anything other than what was to be expected I will never you're right that you have to be right and that that the Russians fell on the back foot they feel they actually needed intelligence more than ever there was some of the people on both sides who were worried that the things that that that actually the threat from the other side remain so they needed to keeps falling but I also think there's a sense in which the west took a while visible when it came to Russia they basically a lot of people in Washington and London and other places throughout the Cold War is over exactly I that just recently out I I used to hear that and and stuff are you are you people out of your minds where did you get this idea that that automatically it's all hold hands and sing Kumbaya ought to I'm sorry to interrupt but that that just used to jar the daylights out of me I'm thinking words Winston Churchill would you need to you but please continue I think that's actually right in that they will they will pick you sold this New World and we need to worry about Russia anymore we don't need to worry about spying anymore it was it was it will be that the people who still want to talk about it what kind of dinosaurs in the policy to forget about I think there was a lot of facts meanwhile that with the Russians focus on the wax remains assistance they were patient they were consistent yes they have you know went through some ups and downs but fundamentally they kept going and they kept their focus well we I think in the West Los styles of Russia for many years and only recently have started to understand what was going on a mature and how we're short changed and the way they have kept focusing on us so I think that you know you're right that there with that that's fine continue but that was the skin balance which came because of the nineties and I think that was a mistake and I think it's had consequences from the introduction to the introduction of Gordon careers careers book Russians among us here and I'll just read it this is a book about ghosts the ghosts of spies past have haunted relations between Russia and the west even as the Cold War ended the Cold War was fought through espionage and defined by it in the public mind but with that conflict suddenly ended the spying did not stop repeated cycles of treachery of the hunt for those responsible word obsession for a small band of spies and spy catchers on both sides either could let go of this obsession mattered since the spy wars have continued to shape relations between the two sides over the decades playing their role in the rise of Vladimir Putin and his drive for revenge and that's a key word right there but that Vladimir Putin as say the leader of Russia the the remnant if you will of the Soviet Union would be interested in spring feeling is country of defending his country but the notion that a leader with that much power and that much in the way of web three and his hand would be that interested in revenge I mean we did not exactly kill the Soviet Union all by ourselves it fell over its own way to does he really blame the west well that's what I found fascinating is if you if you tool to Russians from la world views of the world you for kind of KGB or Russian spies and you read that speech is what you learn is fascinating because they don't want to believe that the Soviet Union collapsed because of big economically couldn't keep up with the wax they don't want to believe it collapsed because of the problems but to do with liberty will the lack of democracy what they want to believe and what they tell themselves is it partly collapsed because of western suppression Weston interference the people like the CIA Britain's MI six were were undermining the Soviet Union the unity of the Soviet Union they were stirring up troubles in the in in some of the republics that made up the Soviet that's the story each the Dave told them selves and that they've come to believe and for that reason they can blame failure and collapse on outside forces me to the point Sir because they they didn't see the sea is something which is continued and they really do believe back three quarters of a Libyan that sounds like the excuses that were being put forward as the Islamic Calif was gradually deteriorating again through its own way but of course it was all the fault of the Christian west well it I'm sorry but it was a tall a folder Kristin west yeah ability to eat and it wasn't pretty it's really interesting that this means that their walls west insufficient then informs the kind of Russian mindset which you may be doing it to us we're gonna do it for that you know we have to we have to fight back we are what we are besieged and they you know they tell them exactly tell the story and they believe it I think it is simple we understand that because even if we don't think it's true we need to understand that because it explains why they do some of the things they do and why they want to hunt for west in spite of pretty much so much of what they want to unleash that flies in the west to do certain things one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six this is docked in the Wilmington Delaware good evening doc presently show Mister Moran as always our thanks so much for taking my call I will rush out to get theirs focuses your as soon as I I can't lose you mention the name of it it is Russians among us by Gordon Carrera but go ahead docks yes is around things again I'd like to ask your guests to a loaded question there's always viewed the Britons are it is people in either Britain are all for the for for a scholarship in this area to what extent currently bar or the Russians adept at infiltrating washes aside all levels intelligence services the military yes our our country Britain and several other winning the war are they come back to those as a as a as a and as an intelligence service where do we stand on his car in your estimation Sir that's a very good question and one I've I've spent a lot of time trying to talk to people about I think we have to be clear eyed about what the Russian intelligence committees and it is certainly Sirius but they're not everywhere thank you we have to get the balance right because sometimes it's easy to say that you know that that they are a bit of it thanks sloppy or they have you know that they're not that good it can be I can get things wrong but you can go the other way and say they're everywhere and they will powerful in night at what they often are very aggressive as an intelligence pliable so increasingly sometimes sloppy they don't often care about getting cold but not as subtle as they used to be but they.

"After the Cold War ended Gordon Carrera writes about Russian spies and the British and American spies trying to catch them in his new book Russians among us it chronicles years of espionage efforts years during which Carrera has had a front row seat as the B. B. C.'s security correspondent reporting on MI six the CIA and other intelligence agencies Gordon career joins me now from our New York offices Hey there hi Hey so your books spans the Putin years and really tracks how he has shaped the spy campaign against the west since he came to power two decades ago I want to focus my time with you on right now on what has changed just in the last few years one factor that that you discussed being technology the things like facial recognition and and I were scanners have made it impossible nearly four Russian spies are spies from anywhere else to operate in the ways that they once did that's right if you go back to the Cold War the Russians spent decades trying to build deep cover for their spies who would live and bar themselves deep into American society the so called illegals like the TV series the Americans but what they found was that starting off the nine eleven really technology was making the holiday it became harder to create some of those false identities and the way they done in the past in that ear you started have biometrics come in in which you have basically confirming someone's biological other characteristics that they work who they said they were yeah it doesn't matter if you have had an excellent fake passport if you still have to scan your iris coming through exactly yeah it will say you came in as a different identity three months ago so the days in which you could just pick up a possible as a spy and a new identity and just pick it up out of you safe and go to another country was really changing so you start to see a shift in lots of countries and how they think about spine but the Russians have always thought more about this than others and so one of the things they shifted to and starting in the two thousands was to stop using if you like deep cover illegals who were opposing and had turned themselves into Americans and actually using Russians who no longer he'd who they were but he did what they were doing your site is as a baby very you know one of the more famous examples Anna Chapman the famous red head who was expelled from the U. S. in twenty ten but who was here under her real name who didn't try to hide that she was Russian she did try to hide that she worked for Russian intelligence exactly and I think she was emblematic of thought shift you sore and how old the Russians did some of their espionage they could take advantage of the closer relations between the west and Russia that when they're in the Cold War and could use the Russians who were moving back and forth sometimes they come over students or as young people sometimes businessmen and oligarchs and they could use those for espionage and influence and they could coop to Russians who were ready in the west and start to use and she start to see that as one of the shifts although you to head on on another thing which is that the mission has changed in the sense that a lot of these new intelligence assets coming in from Russia are not going after powerful influential Americans that the top cadre of American administration officials they're going after regular old Americans yeah the thing that was one of the interesting developments is that there was this old model in which spying was about stealing secrets and and this was the way the FBI kind of monitored Russian spies but they started to see shifts in which actually the Russians were interested in people who didn't actually have access to secrets but who had influence in society and in politics and they started to look to targeting cultivate those people increasingly so looking for influence rather than espionage which actually became much harder for the FBI to deal with they struggled in a way because it's much easier when someone steals a secret to say well that that's illegal and and we're gonna prosecute you will or will go after it and do you see that also shift into politics into political interference and and the way in which Russia deployed some of these fake identities to try to manipulate American politics and to further the some of the divisions in America how does Maria Bertino fit into this picture we should remind people she was another red headed rush came under her own name was arrested and who pleaded guilty to operating here is an unregistered foreign agent and Ted's built up very interesting connections with the national rifle association and don't like in political circles on the right and what was interesting about her she was another yvolution on from the Anna Chapman a model she was much more someone who's being used potentially at arm's length and was working for an all agog a Russian businessman someone rather than directly with any kind of intelligence service it goes back to the idea that the Russians would increasingly tryin we use people arms like compacts co opt them to do things that people don't even always know that they're working for Russian intelligence well anyway I I I interviewed Maria Bertino last year from prison announcer directly are you a Russian spy and she said no and I think it in many ways she could well be right because she may well of thought I am merely doing something for this business model well look up who is also give me to collect this information and to develop contacts but intend that person could have been tossed by the Russian security service so you can see how it's a more fluid picture in the way Russian spies now how does the case of service group all fit in the former Russian spy who along with his daughter was poisoned and this brazen chemical weapons attack in Britain on British soil in twenty eighteen what does that tell us about Russian tactics I think it tells us quite a lot about Russian tactics to one of the things that in my book I focus on is the twenty ten spikes what when a group of Russian illegals in americorps estimate was swapped for for Russians imprisoned who'd been spying for the west was accused of being a spy for the west one of them was took a scrape out now I think that twenty tends what was misunderstood at the time because I think it was seen as a bit of a kind of strange almost comic cold will fight back but for putting himself personally he was on told deeply angry about that swap and I think the fact that they went off to eight years later one of those who'd been swapped and we're willing to use nerve agent on the streets of Britain to trying to kill one of the people who'd been swapped out and technically pardon shows how angry he was and the Russian system was and how desperate they were for revenge I think it also tells you that the capacity and the willingness to take risks that tolerance for risk their willingness to be brazen to not even care about being cool to found out has certainly changed and not something which other thing is always been understood until often it it's too late after these incidents do we assume that this is not a one way street hopefully not the chemical weapons poisoning and that type thing but but that do we assume that the US and Britain and other western powers are very busy in Russia trying to figure out new ways to spy absolutely the spine never really ended when the Cold War ended it kept on going and the west has been particularly aggressive in spying inside rusher in and around its neighborhood and also it feels that the west is being subverting it's politics and I think it is important to understand even if we don't agree with that perspective because it explains why rush it does what it does Putin is used that sense of threat the sense in which the Kremlin in Russia is a besieged fortress constantly under under five from foreign spies who they're manipulating its politics it's part of his identity and put something he's used to solidify his hold on power and which explains why he acts in the way he does and why he feels entirely justified and he's willing to use his spies to interfere western politics Orton Carrera thank you thank you he is the B. B. C.'s security correspondent and author of the new book Russians among us sleeper cells ghost.

"And a Mary Louise Kelley this next conversation is about ghosts the ghosts of surprise that have haunted relations between Russia and the west even after the Cold War ended Gordon Carrera writes about Russian spies and the British and American spies trying to catch them in his new book Russians among us it chronicles years of espionage efforts years during which Carrera has had a front row seat as the B. B. C.'s security correspondent reporting on MI six the CIA and other intelligence agencies Gordon career joins me now from our New York offices Hey there hi Hey so your books spans the Putin years and really tracks are his sheep to the spy campaign against the west since he came to power two decades ago I want to focus my time with you on right now on what has changed just in the last few years one factor that that you discussed being technology the things like facial recognition and and I were scanners have made it impossible nearly four Russian spies are spies from anywhere else to operate in the ways that they once did that's right if you go back to the Cold War the Russians spent decades trying to build deep cover for their spies who would live and bar themselves deep into American society the so called illegals like the TV series the Americans but what they found was that starting off the nine eleven really technology was making the holiday it became harder to come eight some of those false identities in the way they done in the park in that ear you started have biometrics come in in which you have basically confirming someone's biological other characteristics that they work who they said they were yeah it doesn't matter if you have a an excellent fake passport if you still have to scan your iris coming through exactly yeah it will say you came in as a different identity three months ago so the days in which you could just pick up a possible as a spy and a new identity and just pick it up out of you safe and go to another country was really changing so you start to see a shift in lots of countries and how they think about spying but the Russians have always thought more about this than others and so one of the things they shifted to and starting in the two thousands was to stop using if you like deep cover illegals who were opposing and had turned themselves into Americans and actually using Russians who no longer he'd who they were but he did what they were doing your site is as it may be very you know one of the more famous examples Anna Chapman the famous red head who was expelled from the U. S. in twenty ten but who was here under her real name who didn't try to hide that she was Russian she did try to hide that she worked for Russian intelligence exactly and I think she was emblematic of thought shift you sore and how old the Russians did some of their espionage they could take advantage of the closer relations between the west and Russia that went there in the Cold War and could you use the Russians who were moving back and forth sometimes they come over students towards young people sometimes businessmen and all the guns and they could use those for espionage and influence and I could coops Russians who were ready in the west and start to use and she start to see that as one of the shift although you to hit on on another thing which is that the mission has changed in the sense that a lot of these new intelligence assets coming in from Russia are not going after powerful influential Americans that the top cadres American administration officials they're going after regular old Americans yeah and the thing that was one of the interesting developments is that there was this old model in which spying was about stealing secrets and and this was the way the FBI kind of monitored Russian spies but they still too to see shifts in which actually the Russians were interested in people who didn't actually have access to secrets but who had influence in society and in politics and they started to look to targeting cultivate those people increasingly so looking for influence rather than espionage which actually became much harder for the FBI to deal with they struggled in a way because it's much easier when someone steals a secret to say well that that's illegal in and we're gonna prosecute you will or will go after it and do you see that also shift into politics into political interference and and the way in which Russia deployed some of these fake identities to try to manipulate American politics and to further the some of the divisions in America how does Maria Bertino fit into this picture we should remind people she was another red headed rush came under her own name was arrested and who pleaded guilty to operating here is an unregistered foreign agent and Ted's bill top very interesting connections with the national rifle association and don't like in political circles on the right and what was interesting about her is she was another yvolution on from the Anna Chapman a model she was much more someone who's being used potentially at arm's length and was working for an all agog a Russian businessman someone drove them directly with any kind of intelligence service they got back to the idea that the Russians would increasingly tryin we use people arms like compacts coops them to do things those people don't even always knows that they're working for Russian intelligence well and I I interviewed Maria Bertino last year from prison and asked her directly are you a Russian spy and she said no and I think it in many ways she could well be rights because she may well of thought I am merely doing something for this businessman awhile ago is also give me to collect this information and to develop contacts but intend that person could have been tossed by the Russian security service so you can see how it's a more fluid picture in the way Russian spies now how does the case of circus group all fit in the former Russian spy who along with his daughter was poisoned and this brazen chemical weapons attack in Britain on British soil in twenty eighteen what does that tell us about Russian tactics I think it tells us quite a lot about Russian tactics one of the things that in my book I focus on is the twenty ten spikes what when a group of Russian illegals in americorps estimate was swapped for for Russians imprisoned who'd been spying for the west was accused of being a spy for the west one of them was such a script out now I think that twenty ten swap was misunderstood at the time because I think was seen as a bit of a kind of strange almost comic cold will fight back but for putting himself personally he was on told deeply angry about that swap and I think the fact that they went off to eight years later one of those who'd been swapped I'm will willing to use nerve agent on the streets of Britain to try and kill one of the people who'd been swapped out and technically pardon shows how angry he was and the Russian system was and how desperate they were for revenge I think it also tells you that the capacity and the willingness to take risks that tolerance for risk their willingness to be brazen to not even care about being cool to found out has certainly changed I'm not something which I don't thing is always been understood until often it it's too late after these incidents do we assume that this is not a one way street hopefully not the chemical weapons poisoning and that type thing but but that do we assume that the US and Britain and other western powers are very busy in Russia trying to figure out new ways to spy absolutely the spine never really ended when the Cold War ended it kept on going and the west has been particularly aggressive in spying inside Russia in and around its neighborhood and also it feels that the west is being subverting it's politics and I think it is important to understand even if we don't agree with that perspective because it explains why rush it does what it does Putin is used that sense of threat the sense in which the Kremlin in Russia is a besieged fortress constantly under under five from foreign spies who they're manipulating its politics it's part of his identity and put something he's used to solidify his hold on power and which explains why he acts in the way he does and why he feels entirely justified and he's willing to use his spies to interfere Weston politics Orton current thank you thank you he is the B.
