Ukrainian intelligence releases list of more than 600 alleged Russian spies

Ukraine’s defense intelligence ministry released a list of more than 600 alleged Russian spies working in Europe in an apparent attempt to burn them and weaken Russia’s intelligence operations across the continent.

The intelligence wing of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine released the “list of employees of the FSB of the Russian Federation registered at the address: Moscow, St. Bolshaya Lubyanka” on Monday. The FSB is the successor agency to the KGB, Russia’s notorious spy arm.

The list, released in Russian and apparently unavailable on the English version of the ministry’s website, provides names, phone numbers, passport numbers, “registration addresses,” license plate numbers, and occasionally financial details for 620 alleged Russian spies. In a few cases, the list includes a home address.

Refugee claims Ukrainians forced to melt snow for water as Russian forces commit ‘mass murder’

Alina Beskrovna, a refugee who fled Ukraine and now lives in Poland, said she witnessed Ukrainian melt snow to have drinkable water.

She also said Ukrainians were forced to cook on open fires despite giving away their position to potential Russian forces, “because if you don’t, you will have nothing to eat.”

“A lot of people are just, I think, starving to death in their apartments right now with no help,” she said. “It’s a mass murder that’s happening at the hands of the Russians.”

“Irpin was liberated. Well done!”

“I am grateful to everyone who worked for this result. The occupiers are pushed away from Irpin. Pushed away from Kyiv,” he added.

“However, it is too early to talk about security in this part of our region. The fighting continues,” the Ukrainian president said.

Ex-CIA Station chief on Biden: ‘Message discipline matters’

PHOTOS: Biden caught using cue cards in trying to paper over Ukraine gaffe about ousting Putin

President Biden held a “cheat sheet” of prepared answers for a key question during his White House news briefing Monday – a question about why his remarks on Saturday suggested support for regime change in Russia.

Several reporters asked the president to address his comment, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” which he made at the conclusion of a Saturday speech in front of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland.

Biden insisted he is not “walking back” his comments, seeking to separate his wish for Putin not to be leading Russia from an official policy that would seek to remove him.

“I was expressing my outrage at the behavior of this man,” Biden said, calling the Russian president’s behavior “outrageous” and that his comments about him were “more an aspiration than anything.”
