A Helsinki-based KGB (FSB) agent Juha Molari, former Finland's correspondent of Moscow anti-American propaganda TV channel Russia Today, published a public appeal to his KGB leadership on his Finnish-language blog to arrange kidnappings of the Kavkaz Center journalists and sympathizers. As an example, he named Finnish humans rights defender Mikael Storsjo and member of Finland's Union of Journalists IslamMatsiyev. In his view, the DDos attack which has been continuing for 2 weeks already is a "too soft tool" to fight the Kavkaz Center.
Molari said that he is, too, can not read the Kavkaz Center under attack directly and reads it using proxy servers. The defrocked priest commented on an article on the KC website that describes how to avoid the KC jamming inside Russia and the world-wide KGB DDoS that compromises civil liberties of the citizens of the free countries, and the frightened the KC viewers claiming that the KC server in Tor system is designed for "the penetration of the KC editorial hackers into the computers of its viewers".
Being angry with KC counteraction to the KGB cyber-terrorist attacks, Molari designated in his article the Kavkaz Center 5 times as "the website of drug traffickers and child pornographers", because, according to his opinion, only they are supposed to use anonymous servers in the Tor system.
Molari also reported that some Tor-based servers are occasionally hacked by the US government agencies that sometimes arrest, for example, drug dealers who have Tor servers at their disposal.
The defrocked priest hopes that his KBG (FSB) would still be able to block the KC server also in Tor.
At the end of his article, Molari said to the KGB leadership in Moscow that dealing with the Kavkaz Center by DDoS attacks is useless, the attacks do not help, and suggested more radical means.
Molari called for "a forceful action":
"A forceful action is needed against those who promote terrorism in cells, groups and communities. I do not believe that sabotage in the network is efficient enough against the terrorist website. Also important are special intervention operations at seizing server administrators and other important staff members in Finland and Sweden and bringing them to Russia where decisions will be taken on their fate. You do not need to ask through diplomatic channels the opinion from Erkki Tuomioja (Finland's foreign minister - KC) and Hautala (Finland's minister for international development - KC). Politicians and diplomats stay, of course, on the other side. I do not understand why. A man of action is needed to solve the problem (of the Kavkaz Center - KC). It's time to get to work. After all, terrorists are constantly killing people in our neighbor country (i.e. in Russia)".
It is to be mentioned in this context that the Molari's appeal for abduction of journalists were made against the background of the upcoming adoption of a Finnish law which envisages criminal prosecutions for acts of spying on refugees who received asylum in the country.
This law is now actively lobbied by human rights groups who believe that any attempt to spy on the refugees is a direct threat to their safety.
The Molari's call also strangely coincided with an incident with Mr. Matsiyev. In the night from Saturday to Sunday, when the journalist was returning from his work, a car with Estonian plates followed him.
When the journalist realized that he was being pursued, he turned his car around, drove towards his pursuers and gave them a signal to stop. Seeing that they are detected, the pursuers quickly retreated from the scene at high speed.
Finnish special services, namely the political police SUPO, got interested in the incident. An instruction has been issued to halt the car with the (most likely faked) Estonian plates that was probably rented in Estonia. It is assumed that Kadyrov's men were sitting in the car.
The SUPO police took this incident under their control.
Meanwhile, office computers of Mikael Storsjo, who has a business in the IT field, has been several times subjected to powerful DDoS attacks these days.
