Okay so the US has framed Russia as the greatest evil which has ever existed… and at the same time they are claiming that they have literally zero spies there, and so anyone arrested as a spy must be an innocent victim kidnapped by the Russians for purposes of whatever.
I am so bored of all of this news.
Russia’s domestic security agency said Monday that it arrested a U.S. citizen on espionage charges, and a prominent Kremlin critic is claiming the arrest happened because Russian President Vladimir Putin wants a hostage.
The Federal Security Service, or FSB, the top KGB successor agency, said Paul Whelan was detained in Moscow on Friday. The agency said in Monday’s statement that he was caught “during an espionage operation.”
FORMERLY KGB, GOYIM – LIKE IN JAMES BOND!
Spying charges carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years in Russia.
The FSB, which conducts domestic intelligence and counterintelligence, was spun-off from the infamous KGB after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Former KGB agent, Putin, ran the FSB before ascending to the presidency.
DID I MENTION THAT THIS USED TO BE THE KGB, GOYIM? AN ORGANIZATION YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF FROM SUCH FAMOUS MOVIES AS THE JAMES BOND SERIES?
Of all the agencies, the FSB looms largest in Russians’ minds because it hunts domestic threats. In October, a man entered a local branch of the FSB intelligence agency in Arkhangelsk and detonated an improvised explosive device, killing the man and injuring three FSB officers.
The arrest comes as Russia-U.S. ties have sunk to post-Cold War lows over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Prominent Kremlin critic Bill Browder, the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital, tweeted Monday: “Looks like Putin wants a hostage for leverage purposes. Generally countries kick out suspected foreign spies, not arrest them.”
Look at this anti-Russian propagandist the media cites left and right.

What did the US do to Maria Butina, who was not actually even a spy?
I forget can someone remind me?
Oh, right – they staged a weird show trial and are talking about sending her to prison for 5 years before deporting her. Because she joined the NRA.
The US is trying to prosecute Russians for posting memes on Facebook, and they want to talk about how spies should just be deported with no punishment?
That may or may not have been the usual thing. It isn’t anymore.
The US ZOG is upping the ante on everything, kidnapping prominent Chinese, building nuke bases on Russia’s border, etc. etc. etc.
Then they want to whine about something someone else is doing.
There is literally zero room for the US to whine about anything at all.
