RAW: Ukrainian ships seized & towed to the Kerch port after tense standoff

The Ukranian vessels were sailing between two Ukrainian ports: from Odessa in the Black Sea to Mariupol in the Azov Sea. The only waterway that connects these is the Kerch Strait between Crimea and mainland Russia. Kiev says it notified Moscow in advance that its navy ships would be sailing through the area.

Moscow denies that it was given any warning, forcing the Russian military to use weapons to stop the vessels. The three Ukrainian ships were then seized and towed to the Kerch port, according to the Russian Security Service (FSB). READ MORE: https://on.rt.com/9j95

How A 1999 Russian Bombing Led To Putin’s Rise To Power

David Satter is a US journalist who spent decades covering Russian politics before he was expelled from the country after claiming that President Putin and the FSB may have been involved with the deadly Russia apartment bombings in 1999. 

We talked to Satter about the bombings at PutinCon, a summit organized by the Human Rights Foundation that gathered together some of Putin’s biggest critics. Following is a transcript of the video.

David Satter: You had to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to see what was going on. And in particular, you had to be willfully ignorant if you didn’t see the implications of the Ryazan incident.

David Satter is a US journalist and expert on Russian politics. He was expelled from Russia after claiming that Putin and the FSB were behind the apartment bombings

Satter: In the summer of 1999 the approval rating of former President Yeltsin was 2%. There appeared to be no chance whatever that Putin, who was designated by Yeltsin as his successor could possibly become the next Russian president. The apartment bombings changed everything. It was said after those buildings went up that now we’re living in a completely different country.

More than 200 people were killed in the September bombings. Russia blamed Chechen militants, triggering the second Chechen War.

Satter: Putin came forward as the savior of the country. He was put in charge of a war in Chechnya. The bombings were blamed on Chechens without any evidence whatsoever, and as a result of the successful prosecution of that war, against all odds he was elected the next Russian president. The apartment bombings appear to be the keystone of a plot to confuse Russian public opinion, to create terror, to distract the Russian public, to redirect their anger away from the corruption that had flourished under Yeltsin, and toward the Chechens who had had for a number of years a semi-independent government in Chechnya and in that way create the conditions for the Russian people to vote in what they absolutely consciously did not want, which was a successor to Yeltsin who would protect Yeltsin.

There was an enormous amount of material in the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta which pointed to the possibility and in fact to the likelihood that the authorities themselves blew up those buildings. At the same time a fifth bomb was discovered in the basement of an apartment building in Ryazan, which is a city southeast of Moscow. And I went to Ryazan after the bomb was discovered and diffused to talk to local residents and it was clear from those conversations that what took place was a genuine attempt to blow up a fifth building. The authorities said that this was only a training exercise, but it was nothing of the kind.

And what was most important was that three persons were arrested for putting a bomb in a building in Ryazan. They turned out to be not Chechens, not terrorists in the usual sense, but rather agents of the Federal Securities Service which is the FSB.

I asked for documents from the CIA from the FBI, from the directorate of national intelligence from the state department. I got very, very little that was of any use. But I did get a few documents from the state department which indicated that their sources of information were telling them that the apartment bombings were extremely suspicious. You had to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to see what was going on. And in particular you had to be willfully ignorant if you didn’t see the implications of the Ryazan incident in which three FSB agents were arrested for putting a fifth bomb in a building, even though the bomb didn’t go off it was a live bomb. What was it doing in the basement of an apartment building?

Reporter Luke Harding Explains Life Under FSB Surveillance

Luke Harding, journalist and author of “Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win,” explains what it was like to live in Moscow under FSB surveillance. Following is a transcript of the video.

Luke Harding: My name is Luke Harding. I’m a journalist and a writer, and my new book is called “Collusion,” and it’s about Donald Trump and Russia.

I know about Russian espionage, I suffer through it myself to some degree. I spent four years in Moscow as The Guardian’s bureau chief and I had goons from the FSB — basically the KGB — breaking into my apartment, following me around the icy streets of Moscow, sometimes in quite a kind of comic sort of a way.

You don’t really grow accustomed to FSB surveillance, but what we discovered, basically you didn’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out that some strange people had been inside the flat because unlike in the movies, they left a series of blindingly obvious clues.

And I took advice from the British Embassy in Moscow from diplomats from London and they said, “Terribly sorry, old chap, but you’re apartment is bugged.” And I said, “Well, can you do something about it?” And they said, “No, we can’t,” and I discovered that they had video as well, including in the bedroom.

I think I understand kind of how these Russian intelligence people think. They are convinced that any American journalist, any British journalist, that we’re all spies actually secretly working for the CIA or MI6 and that our goal is to undermine Russia by writing kind of propaganda.

Obviously, that’s kind of crazy and wrong, but paradoxically that kind of gives us a degree of protection because there’s one code for foreign spies, they can be harassed, they can be seduced, they can be exploited or surveilled, but ultimately you don’t kill them. The people you kill are Russians who have betrayed the state and deserve the ultimate punishment.

The reason it’s relevant is when you think about what happened in 2013 when Donald Trump famously visited the Ritz-Carlton Hotel for the Miss Universe beauty pageant. Did the Russians spy on him? Of course they did. It’s what they do. For any kind of important guest, they would spy on him. So it’s not really a question about whether they would have sought to kind of entrap him. It’s a question of how he may or may not have behaved, and really only Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin know the answer to that.
