英国情報機関はスパイをその家族を含め暗殺事件にまで引きずり込む



BBCの記者が昨年来スクリパルと接触しており、近く本を出版するようです。デイリーメールがその抜粋を報じています。

スクリパルは、1990年代にマドリッドのロシア大使館に勤務しており、そこで英国情報機関から接触、勧誘を受けたとあります。そしてスクリパルの大使館勤務が終わった後は、1997年と1998年に妻がスペイン国内のリゾートで見えないインキで書かれた本を情報機関に渡したとあります。
スクリパルは、2006年に有罪判決。2010年にスパイ交換で英国に渡る。2018年ソールズベリー事件。
スクリパルはロシアに帰ってからどんな職に就いていたのでしょう。そんなに重要な情報が取れる職だったのでしょうか。

英国の情報機関にとってスクリパルが渡す情報はもはや価値がなかった。だが、生活費などは面倒を見なければならない。はっきり言えばお荷物だった。そして、英国情報機関が公に知られたくないことをスクリパルが知っており、口外する恐れもある。

スクリパルがBBC記者の長時間のインタビューを受けたりしていることを知り、英国情報機関は懸念を強めた。

現在までのところ管理人はそんな印象を受けています。

これは、英国にいるロシア人のスパイだけに限られる話ではありません。シリアにいたホワイトヘルメットはシリア軍に捕らえられて背景を含めて事実を白状させられ、それが暴露されることを恐れた英国などが主導してヨルダンに国外退避させました。

福島復興不倫はケチな話ですが、要するに「ばらす、ばらさない」の問題でした。

悪い仲間と付き合いカネをもらうと、後々まで尾を引くのです。簡単には縁を切らせてくれません。今、放射能は安全だと嘘をつき、ツイッターなどで宣伝活動に従事しているような人たちは、これからずーつと、何かにつけてお誘いがあるでしょう。

「あなた、昔、ネットウヨしてましたよね。こんな仕事がありますがやりませんか」 それが違法な仕事でも断り切れないかもしれません。そしてあなたがよほどの大物か特別のコネがなければ最後は犯罪者として塀の内側に落ちるか、消されてしまう運命をたどるでしょう。

New Book Claims Sergei Skripal Did Not Believe Moscow Poisoned Him
TEHRAN (FNA)- Sergei Skripal spent most of his days watching Russian television and adopting “the Kremlin line in many matters even while sitting in his MI6-purchased house”, a BBC journalist revealed in a book about the former Russian intelligence officer.

Skripal initially refused to believe that the Russian government might want to kill him, BBC journalist Mike Urban writes in his book, “The Skripal Files”, slated to come out later this week, Sputnik reported.

In the book, Skripal is described as an “unashamed Russian nationalist” who faced some “difficult psychological adjustments” after he woke from a coma following the alleged nerve agent attack in March, being reluctant to recognize that he could have been the target of a Kremlin “murder plot”.

According to Urban, who met Skripal several times in his MI6-bought house in Salisbury in 2017, the ex-Russian spy asked not to be quoted directly, saying he was “afraid of Putin”.

Even though he didn’t believe he faced any personal danger, Skripal still avoided making public statements so that his daughter Yulia and his son Alexander could feel free to come and visit him from Russia.

The book describes Skripal as a man who spent most of his day watching Russian television and adopting “the Kremlin line in many matters even while sitting in his MI6-purchased house”.

Skripal was convicted in Russia in 2006 for passing sensitive information to the UK’s MI6. In 2010, he was allowed to move to the United Kingdom as part of a spy swap and has lived there ever since.

He reportedly traveled to the US in 2011, the Czech Republic in 2012 and to Estonia. According to the book, last summer, Skripal spent a week in Switzerland briefing the Alpine republic’s intelligence service.

All this still fails to explain why Moscow would try to kill him, though.

In early March, Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in the market town of Salisbury, around 100 miles Southwest of London, as a result of an alleged nerve agent attack.

London accused Moscow of having orchestrated the attack with what UK experts claim was the A234 nerve agent, which Moscow firmly denies.

Former Russian Spy Sergei Skripal Passed Secrets to UK's MI-6 Through Books Using Invisible Ink
TEHRAN (FNA)- Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, who is believed to have been poisoned in the UK town of Salisbury in March, twice passed secrets to the UK Secret Intelligence Service MI-6 through books using invisible ink, Daily Mail reported, citing an extract from the upcoming book, The Skripal Files.

According to the book's author, BBC journalist Mark Urban, the book is based on his hours-long interviews with Skripal recorded last year, well before the Salisbury incident.

The journalist claimed that he had been initially planning to write a book about spying in the post-Cold War period but the incident in Salisbury made him publish a separate piece on Skripal. The extract from the book, published in Daily Mail, is accompanied by Skripal’s multiple family photos.

The book claims that a MI6 agent, referred to as Richard Bagnall, met with Skripal in Madrid in the 1990-s and, after a while, offered him to work for the UK intelligence. Skripal allegedly received a few thousand dollars for each meeting.

When Skripal’s assignment in the Russian Embassy in Spain came to an end, the two allegedly had to find another way to exchange information.

Since that, the journalist claims, Skripal twice transferred information in invisible ink. The first one was a Russian novel purportedly handed by Skripal’s wife Liudmila to Bagnall as a "gift" in 1997, while she was on holiday with daughter Yulia in Spain’s Alicante. The woman was unaware of the contents of the book, Skripal allegedly told the interviewer.

Next year, information was transferred by the same way by Liudmila during their holiday to another Spanish resort of Malaga.

Skripal was convicted in Russia in 2006 for passing sensitive information to UK’s MI6. In 2010, he was allowed to move to the United Kingdom as part of a spy swap and has lived there for eight years.

In early March, Skripal and his daughter Yulia were said to have been poisoned in Salisbury. The United Kingdom accuses Moscow of having orchestrated the attack with what the UK experts claim was the A234 nerve agent, which Moscow firmly refutes.
