On September 30, KGB officer Markov, co-opted by his Moscow Center into the Putin's "Russian parliament", gave an interview to the KGB Agitprop Department TV channel Russia Today.
Markov again threatened the American Senator John McCain to sue him under the Russian Criminal Code for urging Russians to upraise and overthrow the Putin's regime in an popular rebellion, similar to Libyan uprising against the Gaddafi's regime.
"I generally believe that Mr. McCain's statements can be qualified as deliberately aimed at inciting a riot (riots, considered as terrorism, are covered by Art. 205 of Putin's Criminal Code - KC). We should think whether it would be possible to sue John McCain, most likely before an American court (it is impossible, there is not such article referring to Russia in the US Criminal Code; moreover, McCain has parliamentary immunity - KC), and charge him with inciting a riot".
Realizing that Sen. McCain does not care about the idle talk of the KGB on its Russia Today, the KGB and Markov threatened America with organizing an uprising in New York City.
Russia Today gives a summary of the threats from Markov's interview:
"It is the questionable behavior of Wall Street, not Moscow, that is inspiring the people to take to the streets in the United States, where high unemployment rates alongside breathless levels of corporate greed and corruption are finally gaining attention.
The protests now taking place in Manhattan, New York are aimed at "addressing various issues including police brutality, union busting and the economy", according to Occupy Wall Street protest group.
The demonstrations have entered their fourteenth day and the protesters have said they will stay on until 20,000 people join them in protest".
Judging by the text of the KGB threats, voiced by Moscow's TV station Russia Today, it seems that at present now, despite the ominous name of the group, there is still only a couple of people from among the American "friends of Russia", similar to two infamous Finnish "Russian friends" Juha Molari and Johan Backman.
What are they going to do next and whether the Russian terrorist gang of the KGB (rebranded into the FSB for undercover) has anything to do with the clearly extremist group "Occupy Wall Street!", the KGB officer Markov did not tell, but the threat is clear to any outside observer.
So the China's largest newspaper China Daily found the Russian threats of organizing riots in NYC serious enough and reprinted without comments the text of the threats from the Russia Today's web site.
We can add that Markov's threats to Sen. McCain of September 29 are covered by Art. 280 of the Russian Criminal Code (anti-Russian propaganda), but the threats of September 30 fall clear under Art. 205.
The Art. 205, TERRORISM, reads:
"1. Perpetration of an explosion, arson, or any other action endangering the lives of the people, causing sizable property damage, or entailing other socially dangerous consequences, if these actions have been committed for the purpose of violating public security, frightening the population, or exerting influence on decision-making by governmental bodies, and also the threat (this is the case of Sen. McCain' - KC) of committing the said actions for the same ends".
It is to be recalled that the Russian people is well known as dreamers, mixing reality with fantasy (H.G. Wells called the Russian Communist leader Lenin "the Kremlin dreamer"), and for its twilight mentality ("you cannot understand Russia with your mind", a Russian 19 century poet, working as a diplomat in the West, wrote"), For them, for example, idle threats of an explosion and a real physical explosion are the same.
Earlier this year, the FSB used Art. 205-Terrorism against a Moscow oppositionist Olga Kasyanenko, who threatened last year the Moscow KGB authorities with assaults on cop stations at a public meeting. In early August 2011, Kasyanenko. an Ukrainian citizen, had to flee from the KGB persecutions back to Ukraine.
