A NATO Spy Stole Top Russian Military Secrets?

In the eighty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses front page articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Kommersant, Izvestia, and Nezavisimaya Gazeta. Professor Kovacevic discusses the recent policy changes at the Russian Central Bank: instead of buying the U.S. Treasury bonds as in the past, the Russian government is now increasingly buying gold bars. He also examines the latest case of alleged NATO espionage in Russia and the leaking of top Russian military secrets to the West. In addition, he focuses on the emerging details of the discussions at the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki, especially as they relate to Ukraine. Lastly, Professor Kovacevic discusses the current state of Russian-Georgian relations in light of NATO’s continued push to include Georgia in its anti-Russian Gladio C operations.

  1. Professor Kovacic: I’ve been recently watching the 12 part series on http://www.therealnews.com of Paul Jay’s interview of Alexander Buzgalin of Moscow University. They have covered a broad range of topics, and have focused in on Vladimir Putin, of course, and his popularity in Russia (70%, supposedly), and the reasons for it. Professor Buzgalin attributes it to many factors, but also brings out the importance of the opposition of the Communist Party to both Putin and the oligarchs, and the very popular Communist national paper, советская Россия. I know you have reported numerous times on figures in the Russian Communist Party, but do not recall you ever quoting or referring to this important daily paper with a circulation of over 100,000. Is this just an oversight, or don’t you believe in its importance in the national life of Russia? I hope that your lack of using it as a resource is not because of financial reasons. I don’t mean to imply that you are on the payroll of certain papers, but to narrow one’s focus may be the wisest way to serves one’s bosses, and is not uncommon in the “journalism” field nowadays. By the way, for the general reader, there is an online edition at https://www.sovross.ru/, and all the browsers nowadays have good translation utilities.
