quoting an expert on the action of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the imposition of house arrest against Sergei Besda, the head of the Federal Intelligence Service, this is a sign that “Putin wants to blame for the attack on Ukraine.” “It simply came to our notice then.
According to the Sunday Times, Russian journalist Andrei Soldatov has claimed that Putin placed the senior Russian security official under house arrest, but the report has not been independently verified.
It is also reported that Besada is under house arrest with his deputy, Anatoly Bolioch.
The Russian Federal Security Service is a senior security and intelligence agency. A senior US intelligence official told Fox News Digital that the move showed Putin was “dissatisfied” with the Russian intelligence community’s assessment of the invasion of Ukraine.
A former US intelligence agent and author of “Putin’s Game Book: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat the United States” told Fox News: does not.
He added: “Putin has assessed that his inability to quickly take control of Ukraine is due to ‘weak intelligence’, which has led to two miscalculations. “They are defending their homeland, and the role of technology is to release images and videos of the massive destruction of Ukrainian homes during the Russian invasion. He certainly did not calculate correctly and now he feels trapped.”
Vladimir Oschkin, a Russian human rights activist in exile, confirmed the arrest of the senior Russian intelligence official, saying “Russian spies were investigating more than 20 addresses of my former colleagues who were suspected of communicating with journalists.”
He continued: “The primary basis for such investigations is the accusation of embezzlement of funds for sabotage activities in Ukraine.” But the main reason is incorrect, unreliable and unreliable information about the political situation in Ukraine.
