The Confirmation of Colonel Shcherbakov’s Spy Controversy…

I asked a question the other day in an article:
Was There a Turncoat in the Russian Spy Scandal…

I was not sure if the article that I based my article on was true or not. I felt it was true and the grapevine was confirming it.  It looks like it was true…

President Dmitry Medvedev told Russia’s once mighty spy agency on Friday to put its house in order after a senior spymaster betrayed a network of agents to the United States.

The Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) is grappling with the network’s betrayal by the head of Moscow’s deep cover spying operations in the United States, one of Russia’s most serious intelligence failures since the end of the Cold War.

“There should be an internal investigation and lessons should be drawn,” Medvedev told reporters at a briefing after the Group of 20 summit in Seoul.

Asked about a report in the newspaper Kommersant which broke the story, Medvedev said: “For me the Kommersant publication is not news, I knew about it on the day it happened.”

I understand that also this has caused some changes to be underway and that it is known that a lot of other information was gotten out of Russia by Colonel Shcherbakov…

Looks like the Colonel bought him and family protection in America with files of information he took with him. Colonel Shcherbakov was a trusted high ranking senior Russian official and thus one with great access to highly sensitive information, such as the identities and operations of operatives in the United States…

I would not want to be Colonel Shcherbakov or his family…
