According to Jane’s Intelligence Digest of 10.2.06, “Russia’s FSB (the re-named KGB) “is preparing to launch a targeted crackdown against key critics of the Russian authorities in the aftermath of the recent British ‘spying’ scandal.”
Jane’s correspondent warns that there may be show trials ahead.
The FSB has also been pro-active in the wake of the British spying allegations.
It has posted, on its official website, an offer to any Russians currently working for foreign intelligence services. The FSB wants the “agents” to confess their crimes, but continue to work for the foreign service as “double agents”
They will be given immunity from prosecution, continue working for the FSB and be allowed to keep any money earned from the foreign service.
Who says the Russians don’t understand incentives?
