Amnesty strips Alexei Navalny of 'prisoner of conscience' status
"There was a time when a figure like alexei navalny might have been able to count on if little else the full-throated support of amnesty international. The russian opposition figurehead would appear to meet. Every definition of a prisoner of conscience imprisoned on exceedingly dubious pretext spy unpleasant authoritarians and slash. With no record of ever having furthered he's caused through perpetrating inciting or suggesting violence however amnesty appear to differ on the basis of remarks made by navalny about immigrants a few years back. Amnesty has announced that whatever they will classify navalny as prisoner of conscience is not one. Join with more on this by mark kelly. Russia analyst and author of several books most recently a short history of russia. Mark festival to this maneuver by amnesty. Aren't they missing the point of prisoner of conscience a little bit that it's not necessary that you actually agree with them. Yeah absolutely and this is definitely something of an own-goal for amnesty. And especially so because it seems to bury much be have been triggered by a campaign or if not orchestrated by the kremlin but certainly sort of very much augmented by kremlin friendly. Voices in on social media does hurt navarre only at all it. Does i mean we go. To realize that the kremlin the moment is trying to portray him as anything but a immoral icon. I mean this wine set of charging him with treason or anything like that. They've gone for embezzlement. And basically he's dismissing a great patriotic war veteran and this is going to be an ready. It is being magnified by the russian state media as if it somehow amnesty deciding that novell abadan of course amnesty saying they still think that he should not be imprisoned so forth but that kind of nuance doesn't matter. So the kremlin is definitely gonna use this for it's worth which part of the russian electorate public does this stuff play with though i mean the charges against navalny especially that one. You alluded to of having insulted a veteran of the great patriotic. I mean that's absurd even if true that you would put somebody in the dark for that. The point is this is a long game. Let's be honest. Nevada is going to be in prison for at least two and a years. and what. the substandard kremlin tactic. They basically throw so much mud that even if each individual charge is when you look at it pretty ridiculous at some point just begins to sift into the subconscious of of many of the potential electric. Who aren't really people following the news in detail. They not committed inobound nights. They just went on the they. Just get unsensitive. Oh yeah you know what there will lose court. Cases wasn't their rulers allegations. The hope is that it'll stick again. It's not a sophisticated tactic but they hope is that skin. They have so much control over the media and probably a couple of years to do it. They can black and his reputation before he ever sees the light of day. We have talked before about the strategic sense of this from your vladimir putin on the russian regimes point of view as like why you would turn valley into the center of a circus rather than just ignore him. They hoping though that if he is sent to the salt pile fluently for at least two and a half years that he will just be forgotten about. Definitely the idea. I mean again. They hope is that this way he just simply becomes someone who again used to be someone now. Of course. The difficulty is the moment they have him in a top security prison within a prison. In due course he's going to have to go out and presumed me to just an ordinary prison or in this case a penal colony which is how the russians classify that their prisons and at that point. You know there is the chance that he will have access to whether it's sort of illegal cell phones that he can send out the message and so forth so the there is going to be this constant narrative struggle navanly's people want to keep his memory alive. They want to make into a current thing. The kremlin indu course will want to make him into just some past figure who gets forgotten the you. You have responded to the persecution of nevada by imposing some sanctions which do more symbolic than anything else navalny's supporters unsurprisingly asking the eu to expand those sanctions but is there anything the eu can realistically do in the sanctions department which is going to Compel russia to adjust their behavior. Navales concern because russia can't back down now right valley's going to the penal colony for at least two and a half years yes. There's no real question about that but look sanctions are more than anything else about political symbolism and when you just assigned to go for four fairly obvious candidates who basically have no property in the eu. And unlike we're unlikely to becoming to holiday in the south of france the symbolism the message you're giving is basically we have done the least possible we really don't want to get involved in this if the e you had come up with with a much more robust package of measures. Of course it wouldn't have meant. The putin would suddenly have quake in his boots. Before ios it burrell and reversed his policy but it would have said look. We do take this seriously. We will consist on adding costs to your actions. The trouble is at the moment that actually what they basically said is quite the opposite. The russia obviously does hope that we've out navan the as its figurehead than the protest movement that he leads will just sort of dwindle. Evaporate and disappear. Is that light clear. The discussions about how the rage could be maintained. I mean i'm thinking back to those color revolutions in eastern europe in the early part of this century in one of the reasons or one of the ways they succeeded as that they were substantially lead a loose so the authorities seeking to suppress the movements. Didn't really know who they should cart off. Yeah absolutely and this is one of the problems. I mean they pass. The opposition has had the great virtue of his finger navalny as figurehead because he's very charismatic and effective but now they novelli shaped hole and really echo three ways. They could indeed dwindle all it could. Well be that we will find new leaders. Arising i mean it might be as in belarus that actually you'll find for example navales wife emerging as a new figure all others who can basically fill that role. The third possibility is though if this movement which is essentially very much it's nonviolent. It's political if this fails then there is also the risk that actually people become more radicalized. They feel that we. We tried everything we could within the system. We're going to have to try and go without the system. And i think this is the moment we actually have. No idea. notice the kremlin which way it'll go

Is something shifting in Russia?
"It is no small thing for a russian citizen to challenge russia's government prominent critics risk of exile imprisonment own murder. Everyone else takes their chances with the tender mercies of russia's riot police but the challenges keep coming in recent weeks in particular. Large protests have been inspired by the latest persecutions of opposition figurehead alexei navalny. He's attempted assassination via poisoned underwear. He's medical evacuation to germany his return to russia and removal to a penal colony. This week navalny has been back in the dock in moscow on arcane charges of insulting a war veteran as is usually the case in such circumstances the very absurdity of the accusation is part of the lesson being taught which is that the powers that be can come for anybody for any reason this weekend. More protests are nevertheless scheduled a significant number of russians appear to have reached a perilous point for any authoritarian regime that of being passed caring about the consequences of dissent. These are not the first protests against president vladimir putin. But are they different. Are we on the verge of something seismic shifting in russia. This is the foreign desk. We have reached a point of no return and they felt that taken to the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are going not just with aleksey navales jailing but also with the kremlin's foreign policy and declining living standards and declining incomes because this is not a genuine democracy. That doesn't mean that anything will change. Imminently the security forces at present a loyal the risks in coming out against the regime are just so vastly greater than anything to be gained but we are talking about the slow shabby decline rather than i would suggest at the moment. Any kind of dramatic cracking. It's only bolts the struggle between modernization and archaic way of life and put is a symbol of this archaic understanding of the universe and as we see as a socialist demonstrates that new generations are supporting navan the or not simply in the violence but he's way of understanding of the world. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller on joint. First of all by natalya vasilyeva moscow correspondent for the daily telegraph natalia. First of all. Let's talk about this weekend. As i understand at the weather forecast is very very very much not encouraging for large-scale public protests. So what actually is planned. Hi andrew thank you for having me. Yes we're in the middle of a massive snowstorm bought. It's supposed to be over by sunday lunchtime. Which is when the protests are planned. The main opposition protests. This weekend's will be a sunday. Flash mob as the organizers called it they're asking on russians to come out of the houses and to stand yards for something as little as ten minutes and flash the torch on their phones. There's also going to be a couple of smaller. I would think rallies on sunday afternoon including a solas chain by women who want to express their support for the wife of alexey navalny. But that's pretty much all we have at the moment but you know i should also say that the two weekends of protests were also held pretty adverse weather conditions. As is you know it was cold and snowy so. I shouldn't think that the weather should be in the way on sunday. And it's not hard to discern the strategic thinking behind these decentralized protests. You can't very well send out riot. Police against people standing in their own front yards all over a city. The size of moscow wilson petersburg or any other russian city in fact. So do we have any idea how the authorities are likely to react to a protest of this sort. Well it's interesting that you ask because we did hear statements from the police and even prosecutors warning people against showing up for something that does not constitute a public assembly let alone a illegal public assembly. Obviously i don't expect right police to show up at every person's front door but if we see any source of flash mobs around town any gatherings and on central locations i think that might be a police response but i definitely don't expect anything as big violent as we saw two weeks ago. What's been your sense over. The past few weeks of where people are finding against the reserves of courage to participate in any demonstration against the russian state. Because it's not a small undertaking. Everybody who makes any kind of protesting. Russia will be aware of the risk. They are taking. What is it about this moment. That has led so many people to be able to get past that fear. It's interesting because when i interviewed people at the two rallies. I went to at the end of january. A lot of people i met were first-time protesters who had never been at any sort of political rallies. Even at the time when take into to the street didn't entail any physical or legal risks. A lot of those people told me that they have reached a point of no return and felt that take into the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are

"kremlin" Discussed on Trumpcast
"There's been a lot of research I've done on Baltic. Born or descended individuals who? Especially the group that sort of fled. After the Soviet occupation in World War Two. Ended up in the US or Canada sort of ended up in various special forces, groups, or in the army, writ large than the impact that that had through sixty is in through the height of the Cold War that we were recruiting these guys that we want to them in the fight that we understood how important it was for them to be there and tried to find a way to use their drive and capability in our own operations I think it's. It's one of the reasons. Kennedy was a really big special forces. But but I just think writ large, there's a relationship in particular between us and the Baltic states, and also I mean other post-soviet states as well in particular the Baltic states. The best story that I have on this is the force. Alexandra Anselm who was an Estonian who. Left stonier when he was a little kid. You know spent some time in some German relocation camp before having to the US with his mother but joined the army basically as soon as he could. As many of the displaced vaults did because they wanted, they would fight for anyone who would let them keep fighting the Russians essentially like who's GonNa. Put me in the fight. Okay, I'm in the army. Let's go and he served thirty five years in the US Army and retired I'm in Vietnam, there was just great stories around this guy's life and and sort of. Of faults that that fought at this time we're sort of core to how we were thinking about revamping unconventional warfare, and how we work with local partner forces, and what it would look like if we were working sort of behind enemy lines to try to advance and just the way these guys impacted our thinking, but then after he retired then then. Became independent again, he was recruited to come back and rebuild their army, and there are other Estonians and Latvians and Lithuanians of similar backgrounds that went back and John McCain sort of championed them to be sure they get waivers so that they could keep their US military pensions and still work. which normally not allowed to work directly for foreign military, if you're? But? yeah but McCain sort of understood, this was a very unique cadre individuals as sort of created this unique bond between our countries, but across the armed forces in those three countries. You still see these guys who are west point educated US train, playing central roles in rebuilding and restructuring their own defense capabilities and I think that bond is so unique between our countries, and and. Really creates this sort of common military ultra, which is usually very hard to create that kind of interoperability, but it's just been so important to the story of who we are, and how we work with these countries I just think it's something. It's pretty invisible to most Americans and deserves a lot more attention, but I also thought about that a lot. When than men was testifying? Just that there is this long history of people either first generation or directly from Soviet countries at the time who have joined the US military, because they really believe in this fight and not just counter Russia, but this idea of the United States is fighting for freedom in the right values around the world, and we need to be there when you need to be on that fight, it matters to us. We're there. Yeah, and it's really important. Just important. It's good history and none of us know it. Get I, mean I. Certainly don't and that's what makes this piece, especially important publishers if you're listening the speed. Sangley urgent. I don't know if you ever heard. We had theo pad on the show who was held hostage by Al Qaeda for a couple of years in in Syria and after Gina. Hassle was appointed to run the CIA. He came on to talk about leadership and command structures in the US and how they in. The actions of terrorist groups abroad including how they treat hostages how they treat our armies how they treat civilians abroad absolutely, and it completely jibe with what you're saying. In his case, it was who is actually a friend of mine a friend of mine then now before though he was. Always says taken prisoner, but kidnapped and tortured that trump's reputation for sexual abuse and harassment including his. Fondness of creepy erotic for his daughter, is not lost on Taras. Forces abroad who use it can use it as a pretext sounded. Far fetched to me, but but theo really made the case that use it as a pretext for still more sexual torture. OF OF VICTIMS THERE And that seems to be related to the tone set by the chain of command that has influenced how sometimes quite directly as with Golan how Americans are treated abroad and you know. He says that he speaks often he's he was on the far left, but now he's a hero to west point because you know, he survived, torture at the hands of a terrorist organization and he's just said that the. The looks on the faces of the West Point graduates. Annapolis graduates when he he just describes how kind of left out to dry. Americans have been abroad is just crushing, because they've never thought they would graduate into a world like this. And I think that is the thing that I think is being overshadowed by this bounty story again. The bounty thing is terrible. Absolutely there should be consequences for it, but. Well before there was a numerical value of dollars being placed on the heads of American servicemen overseas the behavior of this administration and its continued. Willingness to ignore Russia to back down from Russia to step back when they tell us to step back has placed a target on the back of all our guys in many of our guys don't even really see that and fight with them about it a lot, but the the willingness of this administration to get kicked in the junk repeatedly and let hat be something that delivers for the Kremlin it works. They're gonNA. Keep doing it and this idea that like. If you give the Kremlin a little bit of what it wants, they're going. Going to be happy and back off is exactly the opposite of what everybody knows is true. If you show the Kremlin you're willing to give them a little bit of what they want, they're going to show up the next day. With two hundred Wagner guys start shooting at a US. Special Forces base to see what happens because they think they might get something out of it and the fact that need don't the fact that we don't sit there and put all these pieces together sort of cross theater. We know what they're doing. With the Taliban. We know what they did with at are still doing with is in Syria Iraq and Libya. We know how they're using mercenaries. In Syria and Libya in sub Saharan Africa now writ large but these new tactics of hybrid confrontation of proxy warfare. It just creates a whole realm of questions that basically means any out of pattern attack on US diplomats or forces anywhere in the world should be assessed through this lens of hybrid conflicts, Yeah. Is there a proxy force there. That is rushing back that Chinese back that is running back that we need to be analyzing in a different context. Than just Oh, it was like some random attack by truckload of militants somewhere in central Africa, was it or do we know that for sure because it's really to the point where we need to look at? The broader landscape now this new geopolitical conflict, which is being fought through.
"kremlin" Discussed on The Cold War: What We Saw
"Everyone was crying. These men who like stolen had sent tens of thousands of people to their deaths under their own signature. Sop like children when Molotov wife Paulina under arrest and soon to be executed in order to pave the way for her husband was released from prison shortly after her. First words were to inquire about Stalin's health when Molotov told her that the only reason she was alive was because Stalin had died. Paulina fainted on the spot. Even many of the freezing starving political prisoners the Zack's who'd been left to die a far slower death found to their utter astonishment that they were crying too. He had always been there. Some kind of towering endless thunderstorm and yet now that he'd gone most of the country including those who had suffered most by his hand suddenly found themselves lost alone frightened and utterly unsure about what was coming next. Hundreds of thousands of Russians converged on Moscow for the state funeral and somehow in the crush of all of that humanity. A spark of panic had spread. And over one hundred. People were trampled to death even from beyond the grave. Stalin had continued. Do what he'd always done and that was kill innocent Russians. The division of power among Stalin's successors went surprisingly smoothly at first likely. All of them Berry included were so relieved that they would likely live out the month that there seemed to be very little infighting at all Beria and Malikov long allies against Khrushchev and the veteran minions like Molotov McQueen and Ghana Vich grab most of the spoils barrier got what he most wanted that being complete control of the organs the various agencies of the secret police that had populated and run the Gulags and execution chambers after successfully delivering the palm to Stalin Beria had been stripped of much of this power assure. Sign that his neck was squarely on the chopping block. Malakoff grossly obese by the standards of the day had slowly risen through the ranks as a skilled administrator and bureaucrat key alone seemed out of place in. Stalin's nest of vipers was quiet self conscious and unassuming. He seemed to be a Pudgy. Out of his league oversized scout but Malakoff had been as ruthless as any of them in. What seems to be a paradox. It was his lack of personal charisma. That earned him his place as Stalin's right hand man and eventually his successor. Stolen had once famously said one man one problem. No Man no problem. Malakoff was not the kind of man who had become a problem. Virtually all of those who were had been put up against the wall and shot long before on March six nineteen fifty three the day after Stalin died malakoff was named Premier of the Soviet Union. And His name also appeared at the top of the list of the newly formed. Presidium of the Central Committee which was nothing more than an expanded and rebranded polit bureau on March. Seventh is name was top of the list of the members of the Secretary. A hat trick which gave him. All three of Stalin's former titles Malekov held the power. That stolen had wielded all of it for exactly one week before his rivals recovered their wits and stripped him of the Secretaria in a move to disperse power. Now question was in. What new direction would the Kremlin move? Or perhaps there'd be no change in direction at all that was certainly worthy initially but after years of an increasingly fossilized stolen new opportunities were afoot.

"It was a weird ugly structure from a distance silhouetted against the setting sun of the South Pacific. It looked exactly like a shabby out of the way radio station. Just a square box of a building with a pretty unimpressive radio tower. Right next door like something you might have seen in the fifties out in the middle of West Texas but the structures or a long long way from West Texas. The buildings may have been shabby but the location was stunning. Nothing but the sound of Pacific swells breaking on the beautiful sandy beaches of the enormous circular. Atoll known as we talk in the early morning it was about as quiet and peaceful of places you could imagine but twice before things had gotten pretty loud on this little island housing the boxy building and the adjacent tower during the late Cretaceous period. The top of an underwater volcano blew itself to atoms. Leaving the thinnest sliver of islands surrounding the call. Dera a bit over two square miles of island enclosing almost four hundred square miles of lagoon. A Turquoise Bullseye with a fifty mile circumference now significantly less impressive was the roar made by the guns of the battleships Colorado Tennessee and Pennsylvania which opened fire from offshore on the very northern tip of this spider island chain just before seven. Am on February. Eighteenth nineteen forty four the big guns of the United States Navy softened up the uppermost island and Jebby and then less than two hours later two battalions of the Twenty Second Marine Regiment WanNa Short. They met minimal resistance from the Japanese on on jeopardy and the island was declared secure by three o'clock that afternoon by the gruesome standards of Guadalcanal and Tara already captured and by the almost unimaginable. Horror of Iwojima an Okinawa yet to come. The capture of Jebby was a bargain. Although it wouldn't seem so to the eighty five American marines in the one thousand two hundred seventy six imperial Japanese soldiers who died that gorgeous February day.

A court in Columbia has recognized the legal rights of a bear named Joe. Joe That's surprising considering courts have only been here in cases like this for a few years says Matthew do you. Lebron of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. The animal law movement really grew out of the United States but the most remarkable progress we've seen has been outside of the United States. With things like the Sandra case and South America yet. Nothing changed for Sandra for years. She was still stuck in the zoo. We did not solicit having having her come here because I didn't think it was possible. Patti Reagan founded the Center for Great Apes and Florida. It has more than sixty orangutan and chimpanzee refugees from circuses casses or people's former pets including bubbles. Who belonged to Michael Jackson? We are the only Rangan sanctuary that is credited north and South America but Reagan. A new. It would be a huge process to meet. US requirements to get Sandra into the country. Still Sandra didn't have many options. Orangutans are highly endangered injured. Their forest habitats in Indonesia are disappearing and Sanford never lived in the wild plus. She's a hybrid of two orangutans species and in the visa has banned Orangutans Her from sanctuaries after looking at several options for Sandra around the world. Actually they asked us again to place taker Acre now. At thirty three years old Sandra has finally arrived home. She walked into her room. She was just engaged interested.

There's still a lingering question the question is if she was a person Argentina does that mean. She's a person within the United States. Steven wise says no one knows yet. He's head of the nonprofit. Non Human Rights Project currently teaching Animal Rights Jurisprudence at Tel Aviv University. And he's fighting for person hood for animals.

Were simply saying that the world is changing outside of your courtroom and you may want to change with so far. American judges haven't been persuaded by Weiss's arguments. Kristen Stilt L. to is director of the Animal Law and Policy Program at Harvard Law. You almost get a sense. That judges are really looking for reasons not to do what he's asking one of the reasons which is well. They're just being transferred to another form of captivity. They're not being freely released. Judges make a different decision if public attitudes shifts. She says. And that's why other activists say Sandra is most important as a symbol. It care about Sandra. Why don't we care about all of them? Mariann Sullivan is a lecturer in animal. Law at Columbia Law School and Co host of the Animal Law. podcast she points out that these court cases only apply to individual animals animal's not animals as a class. Animals live and die in hidden factory farms and hidden laboratories. They're not going to court. So yeah we're not going GONNA solve this in the courts. People have to solve it in their hearts in their behavior and politically in passing laws. As for Sandra the arena ten for the first time in her life. No no one's watching.

Like Hey and finally the office during a raid so you can tell these raids happen a lot roughly once a month and he's just trying to crack jokes. He has a sarcastic tone. Everyone's the Easter this by now. Just saying Oh look over. A thousand people are watching US live. We might as well wish them a happy New Year like you said the Lucy. This happens all the time for Navan and his people what is different this time. This isn't just another another rate. It seems to be a bigger crackdown on Kremlin opposition. Just the other day we saw one of Nirvana's close colleagues shipped off to a remote military base base in the Arctic and Russia does have a draft this colleague of Nevada. He's twenty three years old and well over the age of eighteen but he was forcibly conscripted. Did right I mean this place sounds a bit like a gulag not just a military base. It's got some prison like qualities hazing by officers terrible living conditions. It's not a labor camp but it's it's definitely seen as a way to silence political dissent and by the way it's not just Navan these people who are targeted just today. In the early morning in Moscow a journalists apartment was raided the newspaper. Novaya Gazeta says it was over her investigative work so lucy. Why is all of this happening? Well if you ask Alexei navalny he says it's over this but in me Mr Bush increases generosity by mission. It's a video that novell needs group. That's been been labelled foreign. Agents by the Kremlin by the way put out a couple years ago went viral and Russia macbook guzzle emotions thaw but but intercession has more than thirty million views and it's over corruption allegations against Russia's prime minister Dmitry Medvedev but this video came out a couple of years ago. So why is this. Crackdown happening now. If you look back to the summer we were seeing huge protests and that it was just over local city elections the Kremlin is thinking. Well if there were thousands of people taking to the streets over municipal bull elections what could happen in twenty twenty one during the parliamentary elections and so these crackdowns kind of give us a sense that the Kremlin is trying trying to silence opposition before it gets to a point of even larger protests and demonstrations the wills listening. Marta Rose Ian Thank you. Thanks thanks Marco in the former Soviet republic of Ukraine there's a different crackdown playing out. It was a campaign promise by the comedian turned President Vladimir Zielinski. He got elected did by vowing to fight corruption. The impeachment process here in the. US has distracted from those efforts in Ukraine but Zielinski and his political allies say. They're still trying to root out corruption at all levels of government and as Levi bridges reports from the capital Kiev. One of their targets is a politician with direct ties to Rudy Giuliani. It might sound like ancient history but back in two thousand eight Rudy. Giuliani was running for president in a world where the next crisis is a moment away. America needs a leader.

"So Julian the despise in the United States. I guess we didn't know it at the time but he's in Virginia. How do you come to get on the story a few months back so in two thousand eighteen. I started reporting about why the US seemed to have not a very good understanding understanding about what Russia's intentions or strategy for interfering in the midterm elections would be there was assumptions that they were. We're GONNA do it but the intelligence community didn't have a high level of confidence about exactly what would be going on so we wrote a story about how the size assets in Russia had gone dark and that they no longer had is on the Kremlin now at that time. We didn't know exactly why that was and that story sort of speculated. There's there's a number of different reasons why the spies could have gone silent but we didn't know is that the really good spy had been brought out it's sort of meeting that you could tell even from the outside that something had changed and that what had changed turned out to be in the absence of a single person so how communist that for a country like the USB so reliant on a single source in a place as important strategically regionally as Russia now of course there are multiple sources. You can't have high confidence in a conclusion and still have one source but this source is probably the most important one because of the access to the Kremlin and and the reality is in this day and age. It is very hard to develop good sources as this story shows. It takes decades accolades. You took years to cultivate this person to get this person into a place where they could offer the highest and most valuable level of intelligence you don't turn around and develop a spy in a year you don't get a high ranking. Kremlin official digest turn and give you the the crown jewels and in Russia the kind of technical intelligence that the US relies on in so many places eavesdropping signals intelligence spy satellites the Russians are very sophisticated sort of blocking some of that and so that don't put so much importance on the old school humans buys everything said does not seem to bode very well for our intelligence on Russia with the twenty twenty election approaching. That's right. That's what's really important about this story going forward forward looking at the twenty twenty election when everyone believes that Russia will mount another interference campaign we. We know that they'll do that but we don't know how they'll do it. They're gonNA use different tactics than they used before and if you don't have the is on the ground you don't we'll have an early warning system. You don't know what Russia is going to do.

"Tell me about the story that you had been reporting out a few months ago my colleague Adam Goldman. I started doing some reporting about a key. CIA asset who had been offered exfiltration from Russia by the CIA and we knew that this source was the main Ayn person who told the C. I. Who told the entire intelligence community that Vladimir Putin interfered in the election in favor donald trump so so this person was really important and what happened to this person was a little bit of a mystery Julian Barnes covers national security times anytime. You're trying to report about sensitive intelligence. It's extremely slow going. I had one conversation with a person who as I was asking the question. He said stop. I do not want to hear that question. I want you to ask me that question so it's very painstaking work but last week as I was doing reporting according I learned that a cable network was onto one of the stories I was working on Friday and I was nervous but I let that go cross your fingers and went home for the day. Cross your fingers go home and Monday morning. I got a call aw that. CNN was going to report the story good morning. Jim Shudo in New York and I'm poppy harlow. We're so glad you're with us this Monday morning and we do begin with a really significant. CNN exclusive exclusive Jim Jim this is your reporting you have learned about a highly secretive intelligence operation by the United States. Try Poppy be a multiple trump administration officials with direct knowledge. Tell me that in a previously undisclosed secret mission in two thousand seventeen the US successfully extracted from Russia one one of its highest level covert sources inside the Russian government and knowledge then what happens silver so it was not long after CNN broke the news that Russia apparently released the spies name. We have not confirmed the name of the spine nor will we repeat the name. The Russians revealed at first when this happens you think oh it's Russian disinformation but then you start a quick google search and looks like this guy was a diplomat looks like this guy was a diplomat in the United States at some point and Lo and behold. There's a deed for a house in the Virginia suburbs. You just google the name of this spy oddly enough an address. POPs up for what appears to be a senior Russian official working with the US. What do you actually do with that information so it's sort of shocking to find that it's just profoundly weird like this is not how it's supposed to work like. Russia's not supposed to release the name aim of the spy like you're not supposed to Google the spy in your backyard but what you do with that information as you drive out and pay a visit so the next morning I the family car was in use so I rented a car two go. Which is very small all smart car? Would you're not supposed to take on the highway but I discovered you can can achieve speeds of sixty five miles an hour with a very very small smart car here in that classic spy thriller car and you know it's not like you're sneaking up when you drive in basically a clown car but I needn't thought right as I was weaving through the curvy roads of Virginia subdivisions that I was going to surprise anyone because when I arrived at the house there it was a half dozen other reporters there so I parked my car said hello to my arrival at the Washington Post and then I walked up the driveway. I'm walking down to the cul. De Sac where you can see. The House has a big porch. The three stories very large house. I just remember being like surprised like these are huge. The house's pretty good to be a spy. Guess Lawn has been freshly mowed. The cuttings are still on the driveway here so I walked up to the house lot of windows right here on the porch. You know someone has been in here and has drawn the shutters. I I walked up earlier and you could see inside inside and now they've drawn the drapes. Children's toys visible in the backyard wading pool. There's cars ars from another reporter left in the door. I'm GonNa ring the Bell and then without thinking I put my hand on the doorknob and then I just instantly they thought Oh man Russia is known for going after spies by coating doorknobs with nerve agents and you just touch the doorknob and I just touch the DOORKNOB but of course you're fine. I'm fine momentary scare. The GARBAGE BIN is left out front front. The neighbors had said that there was a dog behind the sheriff was supposed to come look but nobody was home but I I wanted to figure out what happened so I walked down. The driveway crossed the cul de sac and tried to meet some of the neighbors I I'm with the New York Times on Julian Barnes. I'm doing some reporting about the neighbor okay I don't know if you saw the press reports or whatnot but broke out in my paper and CNN yesterday about the informant who told about mentally and Russian media Russian government is reporting. It is your neighbor and what did they know. Well you know when you're reporting about somebody. In talking to neighbors the classic journalistic joke was was they were very quiet a new neighbors we hadn't even met him. The main to get over didn't get over and of course stereotypically and you know we heard they were very quiet but one of the neighbors describe were shooting off fireworks crap. There's a neighbor of the wife and the kids sitting on the porch out over inviting them over for the fourth of July fireworks. I went over and vitamin she. She said he say she didn't speak English. So your husband came out and said that they would just watched from the steps. The interactions were a little bit few and far between that was the only interaction with him other than just go even when we passed on the street and walking the dog Rodway Volney Lar- I did stop and his wife was walking the dog and I doc said hi how you doing. She just she out this student. She said fine fine fine as a guy like the house in the neighborhood and she's like fine fine fine fine. That was the only time I've ever talked to eat it but you know the details they did provide really seemed seemed to confirm that. This was our guy that this was the spot is a Russian couple. In the I remember to a taller boy they may even carry the the family moved in June of twenty eighteen. They were vague about where they came from. Just saying they had meaning from northern Virginia it was at least one little kid and then the other was of US junior high school. The husband was friendly but spoken. What everyone knew was a heavy Russian accent. He was a diplomat for many years. So I presume he's English was pretty good was that your accent and one of the neighbors told me that they had been whisked away the night before. A van came up loaded them up and took them to a location unknown. Did these numbers eight we're talking to you seem shocked by this seeming spy in their midst you know oddly. They didn't a little bit spy novelist. It's how the world works so. I mean you know we do it to them. They do to us. One person was like we live near Washington. There are a lot of spies around here. It's it's government so you know it's it's every government and they seem to very quickly process that this neighborhood. They didn't know very well that he had been a spy. A and one of the neighbors was pretty outspoken and turned out to be pretty proud of his neighbor and said my only concern is our side favors. This guy was doing important work for America and you know he had really risk his own life to do good for our country so we didn't know our neighbor was a spy five but now that we know he was a spy for us for the good guys rah-rah exactly which is a pretty quick mental somersault to do. I think but yeah that's what happened. They quickly thought all right. He's on our side. Let's rally around the flag for them. so then what happens after a few hours the postman drives lives up and he's immediately mobbed by six reporters and then. I just look at that scene and I think the postman doesn't know anything this is over so I got back into my car and I headed back to the New York Times Washington bureau to keep reporting and presumably they drop off your car to go at its cargo place. You can just leave them anywhere in the District of Columbia.

"With the Kremlin. What was most frustrating for me as a reporter about the script hall case was that? There was very little I could find out about the mechanism by which these sorts of attacks were carried out when these sorts of things happened. We are relying on western intelligence services. If they give us anything, we're relying on western law enforcement services. Normally, you get nothing but denials from the Kremlin, and what I was looking for is for somebody to explain to me, how these assassinations how these operations are carried out from the point of view of the people who are plotting them. You wanted to know from the other side how this all works. Correct. And so I went looking for cases that could help better explain how these sorts of assassinations and assassination attempts are carried out and that brought me to Ukraine, and why Ukraine a steady stream of anti-kremlin figures have been assassinated. On Kiev's streets. Mostly because there have been a number of assassinations in recent years a lot of them attributed to Russia. A former Russian lawmaker who defected to Ukraine in two thousand sixteen was shot dead outside a hotel in PF surveillance. Video appearing to show the assassination of a vocal critic of Russian president flood. Amir futon blondes just homes nearly a year off the investigative journalist. Shut him. It was killed in a car bomb. It mocked another dunk moment in the OPEL relationship between Russia and Ukraine. And so I talked to a source who had some knowledge about some of these cases. And one of the cases he mentioned was this assassination in an apartment building with a leg in far, western Ukraine, and this one immediately jumped out at me because it was so unlike all the other cases that I had been researching most of the assassinations that have occurred have involved high ranking officials or military figures journalists people it's out of say, you might. Expect to be targets of assassination. This case didn't seem to fit any of those patterns. The victim wasn't a well known political figure. He wasn't a journalist. He was an electrician at a jail. He was a nobody really. And so I was curious why anyone would want to kill him. Let alone the Russians and yet the Ukrainian officials insisted that Russia had something to do with this..
