Was There a Turncoat in the Russian Spy Scandal…

The man believed responsible for exposing a Russian spy ring in the US has been named by Kommersant as Colonel Shcherbakov….

Original Russian article

Wanna talk about the webs we weave…

The ID of the traitor has not been made public officially by the Kremlin. But, Kommersant expresses that the turncoat is Colonel Shcherbakov, former supervisor of all Russian spies in the United States…

The first flag that popped up and was ignored or covered up was that according to the Kommersant newspaper, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service failed to notice that the Shcherbakov daughter had moved to the US…

Another flag that was ignored was that Shcherbakov had also turned down a good promotion a year before this happened. It seems before taking the promotion, he would have had to pass a polygraph test, which suggests that things were not kosher by that point already…

Another flag that was ignored by everyone was the unexpected departure to the USA of Shcherbakov’s son! Who was in Russia’s anti-drug enforcement agency. He left shortly just before the Russian agents were arrested…

Then Shcherbakov himself went missing three days before Dmitry Medvedev visited the USA. We all know the story from that point and how America waited until after Medvedev left to spring the news. Kommersant is saying that the USA was put in a pickle because of the defection at that particular moment. That they (USA) really were not totally aware of said spies until  Shcherbakov ratted them out…

“We know who he is and where he is. He betrayed for money after they hooked him over something. Be sure, a mercader [Ramon Mercader, the man who murdered exiled Bolshevik Lev Trotsky and was later awarded the USSR’s highest order for it] has been sent for him,” Kommersant cites a high ranking official as saying…

So now we have to make sense of all this and whether you believe it or not is fine. But it really does make a lot of sense to me and when you think about how the spies were treated when they got back home to Russia. They were treated like heroes…

Maybe they really were not so dumb after all! If there had not been a turncoat would those spies still be there in America?

Shcherbakov and family in the old time tradition of the spy vs spy world, seems to be in a real life quandary. Can the USA protect him from a Mercader…
