Russian GRU base "found" in the French Alps

The French daily evening newspaper of left-liberal views Le Monde informed readers, citing unnamed intelligence services of the West, about the discovery of a “GRU spy base” in the Alps. Moreover, it is not difficult to guess whose special services “fed” the “sensation” to the French.

It should be noted that after the publication of the article, the inhabitants of Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Austria and the dwarf princedom of Liechtenstein breathed a sigh of relief. After all, it is about the French Alps.

The publication specified that 15 “Russian agents, GRU officers” stayed in the French Alps from 2014 to 2018 and could use this vast region as a “rear (support) base for covert operations in Europe.” The “hunt” for “Russian spies” was attended by French, British, Swiss special services, along with colleagues from other countries, including the United States.

As a result, they managed to make a list of 15 people. Allegedly all of them are employees of the GRU unit, "specializing in killings." The very mentioned investigation was launched after the "Skripals poisoning" in Salisbury (UK) in March 2018.

The publication even published a list of “spies”, explaining that nothing was known about the five faces before: “Alexander Kulagin”, “Evgeny Larin”, “Tumur Nurizov”, “Naman Yusupov” and “Gennady Shvets”. The names and surnames of ten other "spies" became known earlier. After the poisoning of the Skripals, Ruslan Boshirov, Alexander Petrov, Sergey Fedotov and Sergey Pavlov became known. And after the attempt on the Bulgarian businessman (the largest arms dealer) Yemelyan Gebrev in Bulgaria, Nikolai Konikhin, Ivan Lebedev, Danil Stepanov and Georgy Gorshkov were added to the list. At the same time, Vladimir Popov and Eduard Shirokov were associated with the coup attempt in Montenegro.

And Le Monde does not even bother that Moscow categorically denies any involvement in all of the above. Moreover, the publication claims that all of the 15 “spies” listed are seconded to military unit 29155 (161st GRU training center) in Moscow. According to the publication, all these "spies", in the indicated period of time, came to France from Great Britain, Russia, Spain or Switzerland. Someone once or twice, and someone more. They stayed in Upper Savoy, in the cities of Annemasse, Evian, Chamonix, as well as in more isolated settlements (the region borders on Italy and Switzerland). At the same time, it is emphasized that no traces of the work of these “spies” were found in France, as well as the contacts of this large group with other “GRU cells”. Counterintelligence officers did not find any weapons caches or accomplices among the local population. But they know where the "spies" were resting, buying things, eating and skiing.

    They still don’t know that in Switzerland there is a “Russian land” and it, despite its small area, is a real “stronghold” and is much more dangerous for them

    Yes, our bases are everywhere.
    And in France, the protests of the yellowies were ruled by the GRU.
    Trump is our main agent. Passed Kurdistan.
    Everything is according to plan.
    Ангела Меркель - это наш старый агент резидент. Путин был ее учеником, вот поэтому трубу ведём до Германии на дне Балтики.

    Everything is according to the GRU plan.

    I understand that the submarines in the Swedish and Norwegian skerries ended? But the GRU base on the moon or in orbit has not yet been found, only in the Alps, sort of like? Weak, weak, and for what they are paid money? And everything, come on, do you get the “euro”?

    It is urgent to admit. Further, according to the recipe of J. La Carre, "The Spy Who Returned from the Cold."

    - rested, you see, from the hard labors of espionage ... In the alpine mountainous air, the lungs were ventilated after chemical attacks. laughing Probably, they received tour vouchers from the military unit. In the USSR, milk was previously given out as harmful, but now such progress! wink
    Мне это всё припоминает комедию, которая мне очень нравится - "Гитлер капут!" Она, кстати, и в Европе продаётся с переводом, насмотрелись, небось, спецы местные... laughing

      Nah! About the arrangement by GRU agents (for the convenience of "recruiting approaches" to "interesting foreigners") hotel chalets and "spy hiding places" in the ski resort Alps - this is in the "Aquarium" near Suvorov (Rezun)! yes
      Apparently, by chance someone from the "local specialists" read or, most likely, from the British MI-5, it was no coincidence that their French colleagues “hinted” about this literary “groundwork” that it was “time for them to make a scandal for the Russians,” “Is your president Macron too inclined to be with President Putin on the eve of the Norman meeting!” ?!

        As an option... wink Во Франции же пока никого не замочили "российские шпионы" - в Британии есть труп (хоть и не тот, но есть), в Германии уже тоже свой появился, а во Франции объяснение такое, что, видать, база у них там, "дома не работают" - харам... laughing
