The story of the recognition of the adviser Tony Blair Powell that "spy stone", featured six years ago on the air Russian television, really existed and was "thrust" of the British intelligence had fully anticipated sequel.
Liberal journalists and bloggers, grass Story Creator of "spy stone" Arkady Mamontov, trying immediately after Powell's revelations to justify his behavior, as one of the lines of defense have chosen the well-known Russian human rights activist, head of the Moscow Helsinki Group, Lyudmila Alexeeva, which Tipo wrongly accused in connection with British intelligence.
Recall that Ludmila Alexeeva, the main users the web as a popular performer of the Snow Maiden on one of the uncoordinated actions of the Russian Opposition on December 31, is the most noble character in the metropolitan liberal party.
The head of the Moscow Helsinki Group are not included in the case of a new rating impact, prepared media: publication of selected women who either have an impact on decision-making in the sphere of politics or business, occupying the highest positions, or determine the mindset of people and the number of examples to follow. Alexeyev was in the top 10 of the list of influential ladies, though, as the party girl and socialite Ksenia Sobchak and chairman of the Moscow City Court Olga Egorova, does not affect the reality of everything. Even from protest popular human rights activist was pushed to his more youthful associates. And maybe it did not work out the case.
He learned all the same Arkady Mamontov, Capital Helsinki group received money from an employee of the British Embassy in Moscow, exposure in 2006 of espionage, and the most Lyudmila Alexeeva was issued a U.S. passport — this was carefully told in Sunday in the program "Special Correspondent . "
Mamontov showed vouchers, according to which, in October 2004 the political department of the Embassy of England in Moscow Helsinki Group Capital paid 23 thousand pounds in cash as a "target donations to the project of creation a network of schools of public inspectors in the regions of northern Siberia and the Far East."
Documents, as reported by "Interfax", signed by Mark Dow — the second secretary of the British Embassy in Moscow, who was the curator of some Russian non-governmental organizations and the public unmasking of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation in 2006 of espionage.
Mamontov also said that in December 2002 the head of the Moscow Helsinki Group Lyudmila Alexeeva was given South American passport. "Obligatory procedure before issuing such a document is a public oath, the oath, the essence of which — correctly and completely to serve the United States of America", — explained the reporter.
He noted that "it is the spies who are engaged in subversive activities against Russia, they are also working with our defenders, sending them the means and tools do a cover." "One of these tools — the issuance of passports, in other words, citizenship papers any Western country."
In turn, FSB general Sergei Sorokin said in an interview with Mamontov that "M. Dow, along with Ambassador Brenton (Anthony Brenton — salting England in Russia — Gaze) went to the State Duma of the Russian Federation and advised our councilors, what laws and how to take on human rights, and Mark Dow went on business trips, where he conducted seminars and meetings specifically on the issue human rights. "
Completes its own report Mamontov argument that the Russian counter-intelligence "never blamed human rights in cooperation with British intelligence and our own material we are only talking about what needs to be legible in the relationship."
Excuses Alexeeva of the Sun in the media, the main concern of parts. As stated by the Russian service "Bi-bi-si," the human rights activist, a South American citizenship she received in 1982. It came out 5 years after she left the Soviet Union under the threat of imprisonment for his human rights work.
In 1990, she returned to Russia and then received Russian Federation citizenship. In 2002, according to Alexeeva, the term of the South American passport expired and he had to be extended. It was a routine bureaucratic procedure in which did not need to say any vows or oaths, told Alexeev. "This country [the U.S.] have adopted as my country [the Soviet Union] wanted to send me to jail for the normal activities of civilian clothes. I did not break any laws. Why should I now read: "I renounce your citizenship?" Anything like that, I am grateful to America for the fact that the 13 years I lived there. "
Same story with the financing. As acknowledged by Alexeeva, Capital Helsinki Group really got a grant from the British organization that did not have representatives in Russia. Then it passed through the English embassy, that represented this company at the administrative level. "Accordingly, the signed documents embassy staff. Grant, which we have received, not the Dow signed his signed Katie Leach, head of the Political Section of the Embassy. Its not what is not blamed. He was charged, but he continued to work. Badgered us "- said Alexeeva.
So Makar, the two facts citizenship USA and the payment of Russian public organizations through embassy Britain — proved itself Alexeeva.
Member of the Public Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation (calling 2009-2011) Paul Pyatnitskii in turn has asked the head of department Rashid Nurgaliev a formal request to find out exactly how to public Council has hit double citizenship Alexeeva.
"On the basis of paragraph 4," a "presidential decree of May 23, 2011 № 668" On the Public Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation and its territorial bodies' members of the Public Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation may not be persons who are not citizens of the Russian Federation or having the citizenship (nationality) of a foreign state, "- writes Pyatnitskii.
