It may not be called the Soviet Union anymore, however its leadership
is infested with old school Russian thugs and KGB criminals. As
Guardian reports, the poisoning of former Russian
spy Alexander Litvinenko in a London restaurant is the latest
in a line of attacks on the Kremlin's opponents abroad. The "defectors"
who have fled the criminality and now speak out against the pantomime
of Russian democracy in the name of freedom and human rights are
failing to be given safe haven by the West as our governments
cozy up to Vladimir Putin's tyrannical regime.
Litvinenko, an ex FSB (post Soviet KGB) operative, has seemingly
been subjected to three times the fatal dose of thallium, a tasteless,
odourless killer used in rat poison until, in the 1970s. It is
unclear whether he will survive.
his friends and ex colleagues, most probably fearing they are
next, have directly blamed the Russian government for the poisoning.
They say Russia wanted to stop Litvinenko investigating last month's
assassination of the campaigning journalist Anna
Politkovskaya, whom he was also friends with. They
believe the Kremlin was also to blame for Politkovskaya being
shot outside her Moscow apartment.
During a recent debate at the Frontline club , a private members'
club for foreign correspondents in London, on the murder of Anna
Politkovskya, Mr Litvenenko was filmed standing up from the audience
and saying: "I can directly answer you - it is President
Putin of the Russian federation who has killed her". He goes
on to make several more allegations against both Mr Putin and
Anna Politkovskaya was Putin's most prominent critic, and at
the time of her death was about
to publish a powerful story about torture and abductions
in Chechnya. Her death brings to at least 13 the number of journalists
killed in contract-style killings since Putin came to power in
2000, according to the New-York based Committee to Protect Journalists
(CPJ). This systematic silencing of journalists, in addition to
off all independent TV news networks, represents
the destruction of the very short lived free press in Russia.
Politkovskaya had accused Putin of stifling freedom and failing
to shake off his past
as a KGB agent, possibly working in conjunction with
the East German Stasi. According to the Washington Post:
"Putin defends the Soviet-era intelligence service to this
day. In recent comments to a writers' group in Moscow, he even
seemed to excuse its role in dictator Joseph Stalin's brutal purges,
saying it would be "insincere" for him to assail the
agency where he worked for so many years. Fiercely patriotic,
Putin once said he could not read a book by a Soviet defector
because "I don't read books by people who have betrayed the
It comes as little surprise that Alexander Litvinenko has thus
been targeted for speaking out about Politkovskaya. Protesters
around the world have denounced Putin as her murderer.
This is a long favoured strategy of Putin's government which
came to power as a result of an FSB plot in the autumn of 1999
which involved blowing
up apartment blocks all around Russia and blaming
the attacks on Chechen separatists, thus playing on Russian fears
of the fierce Muslim Chechens both to start a new war in Chechnya
and to win Putin the presidential elections.
Litvinenko's book, Blowing Up Russia, details this claim, another
reason for his attempted assassination. The ex-operative, who
Russia says was removed from the FSB for corruption, claims he
left because he did not want to carry out an FSB order to assassinate
the man who was then Putin's political Enemy Number One - Exiled
Russian media tycoon Boris
Berezovsky. Berezovsky had detailed Putin's direct
involvement in the terrorist act that eventually brought him to
In a London Telegraph article, Oleg
Gordievsky, a former KGB colonel today states:
I know that today the KGB has tried to kill my friend. Tomorrow
it could be me and the day after it could be another London-based
critic of Mr Putin's government. Since the fall of the Soviet
Union, the KGB, my old employer, has been renamed the FSB. But
I know its methods are unchanged from those perfected in the darkest
hours of Stalin's reign of terror.
He knows that the west has failed to call his government
to account for the suspicious circumstances surrounding Ms Politkovskaya's
murder. Indeed on the day she died, President Bush trumpeted Russia's
acceptance into the World Trade Organisation. Yet Mr Putin is
eliminating his opponents with the same ruthless determination
displayed by Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Western leaders are pursuing
a hypocritical policy of appeasement that is encouraging the ruthless
instincts of Russia's leaders.
Despite his criminal rise to power, his KGB past and such systematic
dismantling of democracy by Putin, he and George Bush are "best
friends". After meeting in 2001, Bush declared that he had
into his soul and liked what he saw there.
The friendship continued as Putin urged
US voters to re-instate Bush in 2004.
The reason Putin, a man who finds
rape admirable, likes Bush so much is that he can
get away with whatever he wants without worry of recrimination.
prominent Russian experts have stated, there is an
agreement between the two whereby in return for Russian acquiescence
in the war on terror agenda in the middle east, the Bush administration
has ignored Putin's undemocratic, freedom restricting takeover
of the country and the EU.
This is because the Russian style of "democracy" is
the globalists' chosen model for Europe. The EU is being "harmonised"
to this system. As Putin declared
in 2003 at the EU summit:
"Only by acting together can Russia and the enlarging European
Union direct the process of the formation of a new world order,
common values and interests."
Bilderberg agenda of artificial hiking of oil and
gas prices in europe over the last two years and rising the cost
of standard of living is directly geared towards benefiting the
Russian, and beyond them the Chinese, models of "democracy"
where the state is all powerful and the middle class really becomes
The fact that our governments appease such criminal and ruthless
acts of state sponsored murder and terror should be enough of
a wake up call, without even touching upon the fact that we have
also caught them engaging in them.
