Sergei Skripal worked for 4 NATO countries turning in Russian spies
The former GRU colonel worked for Western intelligence services declassifying information about Russian spies that operated abroad.
Sergei Skripal, who got poisoned in the British Salisbury, had actively cooperated with the NATO before the incident. He worked for four countries, Focus reported referring to a statement of an informed source with NATO’s Allied Command Counter-Intelligence Unit (ACCI).
According to the source, Skripal declassified the data he had left about the Russian spies operating in other states. In particular, the ex-colonel made a secret visit to the Czech Republic last year, and then met with Czech representatives in the UK.
Some people from the North Atlantic alliance believe that Skripal’s active cooperation with NATO was the real reason behind the poisoning.
In addition, the secret service of Spain made a statement disclosing information on criminal contacts between the Russian mafia on the Costa del Sol and some influential politicians and officials in Moscow. There are no details on this, however.
The cadets have been found guilty of an Attempt at Murder by a Group of Persons by Previous Concert and for Mercenary Reasons (part 3 of Art. 30, part 2 of Art. 105 of the Russian Criminal Code). They do not plead guilty.
