Bulgarian journalist Christo Grozev, part of the Bellingcat “investigative website” gave an interview to Ukrainian outlet Liga.

He spoke of the world’s 5 intelligence agencies, and he gave his subjective and quite absurd opinion.

He also mentioned that “WagnerGate” is being investigated by Bellingcat and it would be coming “soon”.

He didn’t give a top 5, but rather a top 7, who knows why.

Grozev’s list looks like this:

  1. Israel
  2. China
  3. Netherlands
  4. United Kingdom
  5. USA
  6. Ukraine
  7. Russia

It should be recalled that Hristo Grozev played one of the main roles in the investigation into the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

It is interesting that Ukraine didn’t make it into the top 5, but still came up before Russia.

Liga’s report, based on the interview is extremely dramatic, and quite absurd.

According to it, and Grozev’s claims, this is a battle for democracy.

As per the report, in this unequal battle, democracy is trying to defend its right to exist in the new world, where Russia’s intelligence services, under Vladimir Putin’s command, are hunting down his political opponents around the world. Any critic of the Russian president can be killed. Journalists are no exception.

According to Hristo Grozev, special operations of the Ukrainian special services brought them to the TOP of the world. Especially thanks to the operation against the mythical Wagner PMC.

Russia, according to the investigator, is only 7th. What does the front line of the war against Russia’s secret services look like?

All the Kremlin’s special services are involved in the fierce and secret war, from the FSB to the GRU. They probably listed the FSB and GRU, since they’re most frequently in MSM and didn’t know any others.

“The tools of the Russians are extremely wide: killers use military poison (Salisbury), kill political opponents with a pistol (Berlin), shoot journalists on the sidelines (Africa).”

The “former terrorist” shot in Berlin, who is here called a “political opponent” of Russian President Vladimir Putin is noteworthy. As Zelimkhan Khangoshvili is a known terrorist, who has admitted to carrying out various attacks.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has made the secret services a conveyor belt for political assassinations, says Hristo Grozev.

“And the influential Bellingcat has been following in the footsteps of the killers for years. What is the future fate of the discovered killers (some of them are sent to Siberia, says Grozev)? How did the special operation against Wagner’s APC bring the Ukrainian special services to the TOP and who takes other places? And more.”

Here are several quotes from Christo Grozev, which show the delusion in which Bellingcat and Ukraine live in:

“Studying Russian intelligence officers, we feel that we sometimes know them even better than their wives.”

“I don’t think it can happen twice in my life. I am afraid that I will never experience something so incredible and shocking as then …”

Grozev replying to Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova:

“Start by admitting that you killed Khangoshvili to compare yourself and your actions with the United States and the assassination of bin Laden.”

“Recently we looked at the broken mail of one FSB general. He sends a subordinate a link to an article about the new PMC and writes …”

Liga requires payment for any more content, and as such some of the quotes are unfinished, since this is “exclusive content”.

The entire interview, and the list, show pure ignorance.

Intelligence services from Iran and Germany are entirely absent, the Netherlands’s capabilities are misrepresented – there is no doubt that the Dutch intelligence is incredibly capable, but its intelligence is mostly narrowly-tasked with protecting interests of the financial elites. Finally, one shouldn’t even mention that Ukraine’s capability has been misrepresented grossly.
