Russlands GRU Militär-Nachrichtendienst
October 11, 2018 -- Russlands Anstrengungen, seinen Einfluss zu verstärken, setzt alle Mittel seiner Staatsmacht ein, auch den Militärischen Nachrichten-Dienst GRU, der weltweit tätig ist - und auch im Cyberspace.
Now, the respected Russian news website Fontanka has named a third GRU military intelligence operative, Sergey Fedotov, as a third member of the Kremlin hit squad involved in the nerve agent attack in the English city of Salisbury.
Fontanka said records show Fedotov visited Britain in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and left the country on March 4 this year, the same day as two other GRU agents who have already been named. It is almost certain Fedotov is not the passenger’s real name but an alias.
British police had identified a third Russian intelligence officer they believe carried out a reconnaissance mission before the attempted murder of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
