MI5 attacks Russian Federation over 'fog of lies'

MI5 attacks Russian Federation over 'fog of lies'

Andrew Parker, speaking to reporters in Berlin after the first public speech outside Britain by a serving head of MI5, underscored the importance of joining forces to combat what he called increasing cyber and propaganda attacks by Russian Federation.

Andrew Parker, the director general of MI5, called upon the European Union to work with the United Kingdom in their collective fight against militant and Russian forces.

Noting the exploitation of modern technology by Europe's adversaries, Mr Parker said: "Age-old attempts at covert influence and propaganda have been super charged in online disinformation, which can be churned out at massive scale and pace, and at little cost". "We owe that to all our citizens across Europe".

Britain suffered four deadly militant attacks a year ago - a suicide bombing at a Manchester pop concert and an attack on London Bridge. These included a suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester on May 22 in which 22 people were killed.

The Director-General will today confirm the United Kingdom security agencies have disrupted a total of 25 mostly Islamist terror plots since 2013, including 12 in the last 14 months.

He cooled off down the stretch, making five pars and a bogey over the final six holes. "It's set up for these guys to go low". He then built on that momentum on the par-5 2, where he got up and down from left of the green to get to two-under after 2.

Beside the threat from militant Islamists, including Islamic State operating in Syria and Iraq, Parker described Russia as a hostile state which was seeking to undermine the West, though he said he had no argument with the Russian people and that he had once studied Russian.

Parker, who has a 35-year career in intelligence will say the attack is evidence of Russian Federation pursuing an agenda through "aggressive and pernicious actions" and risks making the country a "more isolated pariah".

Parker also condemned what he called a disinformation campaign mounted by Russian Federation following the attack.

Parker accused the Kremlin of "flagrant breaches of global rules" and said the attack on the Skripals was an example of Russia's malign activities that risked turning the country into an "isolated pariah".

THE Kremlin and Russian state media outlets promoted at least 30 "explanations" for the Salisbury nerve agent attack as part of a disinformation campaign to shift the blame for the attempted assassination, the head of MI5 has claimed. Mr Skripal remains in hospital, while his daughter Yulia, who was also taken ill, was released to a secure location last month.

Deutsche Bank cut shares of BHP Billiton from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research note on Wednesday, February 21st. On Friday, May 4 the stock of BHP Billiton Limited (NYSE:BHP) has "Overweight" rating given by Barclays Capital.

Russian officials suggested the United Kingdom had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

Parker's address to the gathering hosted by Germany's BfV domestic intelligence service was the first public speech outside Britain by a serving head of the agency.

The chief of MI5, the UK's security service, has accused Russian Federation of attempting to subvert Western democracies.

"Bare-faced lying seems to be the default mode, coupled with ridicule of critics". Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the attack.
