Исполнять обязанности главы ГРУ будет вице-адмирал Игорь Костюков - Новости – Политика – Коммерсантъ

1 Share
Исполняющим обязанности главы Главного управления Генерального штаба ВС РФ назначен вице-адмирал Игорь Костюков, сообщает РБК со ссылкой на источники. Он был заместителем начальника Главного управления Генштаба Игоря Коробова, накануне умершего от болезни. Об этом также сообщают источники ТАСС.
Источники “Ъ” подтвердили факт назначения вице-адмирала Костюкова и.о. начальника ГРУ, уточнив, что в ближайшее время в администрацию президента будет направлено представление о его назначении начальником военной разведки. Соответствующий указ должен будет подписать Владимир Путин.
Игорь Костюков — выпускник Военно-дипломатическую академии Минобороны. По окончании военного вуза он служил по линии военного атташе, затем в ГРУ, ​принимал участие в руководстве военной операцией в Сирии. В 2016 году Вашингтон включил его в санкционный список в связи с «действиями по подрыву демократии в США», в 2018-м — за «вмешательство» в выборы. В 2017 году ему присвоили звание Героя России.
Раньше Главное управление Генштаба ВС называлось Главным разведывательным управлением (ГРУ). Под названием ГРУ военная разведка действовала до 2010 года. В начале ноября президент России Владимир Путин предложил вернуть название ГРУ.

GRU seems still in Putin’s favour 

1 Share
GRUlogo2I’ve written elsewhere both that we should be wary of making easy assumptions about the GRU‘s supposed “incompetence” and also that I didn’t expect to see any purge or other visitation of Putin’s wrath. Apart from the fact that we don’t know how many missions are succeeding, the GRU’s high tempo of operations and – seemingly – the mandate it has been given to operate without much regard for the political fallout are most important in explaining the recent spate of cases brought to life.
That the GRU has not, as some claim, angered Putin , and that GRU chief Korobov is not out of favour and out of time, seems confirmed. Yesterday, 2 November, Putin attended a gala to mark the hundredth anniversary of what he called “this legendary service,” and he delivered an enthusiastic eulogy: ”
As supreme commander, I of course know with no exaggeration about your unique abilities including in conducting special operations. I am confident of your professionalism, of your personal daring and decisiveness and that each of you will do all that is required by Russia and our people.
Screenshot 2018-11-03 at 09.43.03
He was especially enthusiastic about the GRU’s role in Syria, something that stretches from its intelligence elements through to its Spetsnaz special forces:
Our intelligence officers, as is mandated by the Russian military tradition, never fled and always carried out their orders. The credit for the return of peace to many parts of Syria, the end of bloodshed and an open path to finding reconciliation should definitely go to a large degree to the military intelligence. No less important is the fact that we have dealt a blow to the terrorists and are preventing their return to our territory.
Indeed, he also suggested it was time the GRU regain its old name,  given that since 2010 has technically been known as the GU, the ‘Main Directorate’, even though in practice everyone still calls it the GRU. (Will it also regain its cool bat logo?) Of course, there is the chance that this is part of maskirovka, deception, keeping any recriminations behind closed doors, but there comes a point when Occam’s Razor ought to cut away some of the most implausible product of the rumour mills. Sure, Putin may feel an obligation to demonstrate his loyalty to his spooks – but that is primarily because they are doing what he wants them to do.

Head of Russia’s Military Spy Agency Dies

1 Share
The head of Russia’s military intelligence agency, who oversaw the hacking of the Democratic Party’s computers during the United States’ 2016 presidential election, died on Wednesday after a long illness, Russian state news agencies reported.
Col. Gen. Igor V. Korobov, 63, had not been seen in public for months and was notably absent from a ceremony on Nov. 2 marking the 100th anniversary of the military intelligence agency, known as the G.R.U. Historically a secretive, little-understood agency, the G.R.U. under General Korobov emerged as Russia’s primary tool of global disruption.
Mr. Korobov was sanctioned by the Treasury Department for the release of emails stolen from the Democratic Party in support of Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016.
Under his watch, the G.R.U. was also implicated in the theft and publication of documents belonging to the presidential campaign of Emmanuel Macron in France, hacking computers of the global antidoping watchdog and the poisoning of a former G.R.U. officer, Sergei V. Skripal, with a highly potent nerve agent in Britain earlier this year.
G.R.U. operatives also play a key role in the wars in Ukraine and Syria.
Such operations have demonstrated Russia’s ability to project its limited power well beyond its borders and remain a relevant international player that the West is still struggling to reckon with.
Col. Gen. Igor V. KorobovCreditMinistry of Defence of the Russian Federation
General Korobov was appointed head of the G.R.U. by President Vladimir V. Putin in January 2016 after his predecessor, Igor D. Sergun, died suddenly. But the general’s absence in recent months has fueled rumors about an impending leadership shake-up at the agency.
Russian news agencies cited a Defense Ministry statement which described the general as a “true son of Russia, a patriot of the Fatherland.” And at the G.R.U.’s anniversary ceremony this month, Mr. Putin praised the agency for its “unique capabilities.”
Though General Korobov is one of Russia’s top military officials, very little is publicly known about him. According to his sparse biography on the Defense Ministry’s website, he joined the armed forces in 1973 and joined the G.R.U. in 1985.
Despite Mr. Putin’s recent laudatory remarks, the G.R.U. has had its share of missteps lately. Just weeks after British authorities released photographs and aliases of two G.R.U. officers suspected of poisoning Mr. Skripal in England in March, researchers with the investigative group Bellingcat were able to uncover the officers’ true identities and travel itineraries primarily using publicly available information.
In October, officials in the Netherlands revealed details about a botched attempt by four agency operatives to hack into the computers of the world’s chemical weapons watchdog in The Hague. The operatives were carrying computers with details from previous missions along with an airport taxi receipt showing that they had been picked up outside a G.R.U. headquarters building in Moscow.
Still, the agency’s activities have put Russia’s adversaries on edge and have provoked fierce reaction from the West. Russia has been hit with wave after wave of sanctions as a result of its election interference. After Mr. Skripal was poisoned, Britain and many allies expelled more than 150 Russia diplomats, many believed to be undercover intelligence operatives.
