Russia: President Putin has fired 150 of his spies, outraged by the heavy casualties inflicted on Russian troops in the Ukraine war. Not only that, many spies have been sent to jail. The news agency Bellingcat, which does investigative journalism, has made this big claim in its report. All of the spies are said to have belonged to Russia’s notorious FSB spy agency, replacing the KGB, a Soviet-era spy agency. Putin has previously been a KGB spy. Many FSB spies have been sent to prison, the report said.
The spies fired by Putin are said to be from the fifth service. This section was formed in 19. While Putin was the director of the FSB. The department’s job was to spy inside the countries of the former Soviet Union. Colonel General Sergei Beseda, head of the 7th and 8th Services, is said to be in custody. He is now locked up in the infamous torture prison Lefortovo. It is alleged that the ambassador provided the information to Hussein.
Cristo Grojev, director of Bellingcat, claimed that the spies were fired after the Russian president’s office had misreported the situation in Ukraine before the Russian attack. “I can say, however, that not many people have been arrested,” Grojew said. They will no longer work for FSB. Putin was told by intelligence agencies that a large number of Ukrainians would welcome him if Russian forces attacked. This speed will lead to victory. In reality the opposite happened and thousands of Russian soldiers were killed and more than 30 days passed, but no success was achieved. Ukraine’s president has claimed that some 40,000 Russian soldiers have been killed so far in the war. It is alleged that the ambassador provided the information to Hussein. Putin also suspects that his plan to invade Ukraine was leaked.
