Russian spies threaten the Netherlands

Publication time: 21 April 2009, 22:15 

A Dutch intelligence service warned Tuesday of a growing threat posed by foreign espionage in the country, pointing in particular to Russia, China and Morocco.


"The Netherlands and Dutch citizens are... attractive targets for foreign intelligence services," said the annual report of the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD), released in The Hague.


"The threat posed by clandestine intelligence activities is big and diverse.


"The secret activities of other countries in the Netherlands affects national sovereignty and can harm national security."


Dutch membership of the European Union and NATO, as well as the country's hosting of a number of international organisations, made it a prime target for spies, said the report.


"Also the presence of large groups of migrants attracts unwonted foreign intelligence activities."


The agency's report said Russian intelligence services were active in the Netherlands with a particular interest in information about NATO, the techno-science sector, ...

Window on Eurasia: Regions Propose Radical Changes in Russia’s Federal Arrangements

Paul Goble

Vienna, April 20 – Even though President Dmitry Medvedev has made clear that Moscow will have the last word on all anti-crisis measures and even though polls suggest Russians trust the center more than the regions to cope with the crisis, many of Russia’s regions and republics argue that the crisis underscores the need to revamp existing federal arrangements.
In the current issue of “Versia,” Mikhail Izmalkov surveys the proposals regional officials have offered over the last month. And while it is unlikely that all or perhaps even many of their ideas will be implemented, the list itself provides a measure of within-system regional aspirations (
Izmalkov says that the economic crisis has become “a crisis of the Russian Federation,” one during which “the regions are demanding an increase of the political and economic freedoms” of the country’s ...

Window on Eurasia: Is Official Ankara Distancing Itself from the Circassians?

Paul Goble

Vienna, April 20 – Turkish government officials at the last moment announced that they would not participate in a long-scheduled conference on relations between Turkey and the Caucasus, a decision that suggests Ankara may have decided to lower its public profile in this area as part of its effort to expand its cooperation with Moscow in the Caucasus.
But if Ankara has indeed decided to do so – and Russian pressure on Turkey has been strong, especially given Moscow’s sensitivities about the Sochi Olympics whose convention many Circassians oppose – Turkish officials are certain to come under increasing pressure from the more than five million Turkish citizens of Circassian descent to reverse this course.
Officials of the Khase Circassian Federation of Turkey (KAFFED) said they were “extremely surprised” that Turkish government officials who earlier had agreed to come ...

Window on Eurasia: Even Moscow’s Closest Allies in the CIS are Switching Off Russian TV

Paul Goble

Vienna, April 19 – Ever more former Soviet republics, including some Moscow views as its closest allies within the Commonwealth of Independent States, have decided to drop Russian TV channels, a development that threatens the survival of the broader Russian-language space Moscow has wanted to maintain and thus of Moscow’s influence in these countries.
That Georgia and Ukraine have made that choice, according to a lead article in “Gazeta” on Friday, will come as no surprise given the tensions between the Russian Federation and those two countries. But that Tajikistan and Belarus have done so raises some serious questions, the editors say (
Each of the governments has its own reason for taking this action, the paper notes, thus undermining any notion that this is “a conspiracy” against Russia as some might be inclined ...

"Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty"April, 13th 2009

Josef Stalin is dead, but there are some places where you would be forgiven for doubting it. Consider, for example, Chechnya, one of Russia's most unstable republics.

The press releases which flood out from the spin center of Ramzan Kadyrov, the region's Moscow-backed strongman, are so steeped in Bolshevik hyperbole that at times, halfway through some particularly egregious passage, you almost expect the mustachioed specter of Stalin to appear and sternly wag its finger at you.

Then again, the Soviet dictator, were he to come back from whichever circle of hell he is in now, would have a hard time competing for the limelight with Chechnya's young and adulation-hungry leader.

Since he became the de facto leader of Chechnya five years ago, Kadyrov has been busily promoting his own cult of personality, and, unlike some Hollywood stars, he never ...
