Russian human rights activists who do not want to wear the KGB label of "foreign agents" managed to receive a refutation from the US State Department. The head of the US Department of State, Hilary Clinton, issued an official "certificate" in the name of the US president Obama that Russia's human rights activists are not the agents of the United States.
Now human rights activists decided to bring the situation to a point of absurdity, trying to receive also written certificate also from the KGB that they are not American agents.
The KGB gave no comments yet and will hardly do it in the future.
The leader of the movement For Human Rights, Lev Ponomarev, said to Russian KGB-controlled media:
"Imagine the situation: I submit to the law, and I go to register ma organization, saying that I am a US agent. When I thought about it, I realized that I would cause an international scandal by doing that if don't ask previously clarify the issue with the US President or any other American department, It will be a major international scandal. Russian newspapers would write that the movement For Human Rights was registered as an agent of the United States. I can not do that. The US State Department would immediately deny it and say: "Ponomarev lied, he is not our agent".
"I'll take this letter by Clinton to the court for a hearing over the "agent" issue. Of course, my opponents now say that the US president would never admit that Ponomarev is an American agent. In that case, I am to be a secret agent. On my blog, I appealed to the KGB boss Bortnikov that he looks into this issue".
Earlier, the KGB journalists in Russia quickly reacted with mockeries to the certificates issued by Clinton to Moscow defenders Lyudmila Alekseeva (a double Russian and American citizen) and Lev Ponomarev, heads Moscow Helsinki Group and the group For Human Rights, respectively, that they are not American agents.
But the main problem with these two persons is that they are in fact accused by many former Soviet dissidents and some current Russian opposition activists that they are not the US State Dept. agents but long-time active agents of the KGB-FSB. And they have not yet presented any certificates from the KGB-FSB that they are not.
Meanwhile, an open FSB agent, co-chairman of Putin's movement People's Council, V. Khomyakov, speaking in connection with Clinton's certificates to his fellow KGB comrades Alekseeva and Ponomarev,said in an interview to a Moscow radio that those who do not have a certificate from the US State Department that they are not its agents, including the Kavkaz Center, are surely American agents. The KGB man said:
"Now there is much evidence that in Libya, local foreign agents among whom Libyan citizens were a tiny minority staged internal unrest, protests and etc. The same thing is now happening in Syria.
And why should Russia be an exception? Today, we clearly see that a well-defined group of persons belonging to seemingly very different non-profit organizations and different media, write and speak as a blueprint.
Take a recent problem with hooligans from P*ssy Riot with sharp comments condemning the investigation and the trial. The same persons also earlier protested against persecution of Yerofeyev and Samodurov who staged a disgusting anti-religious exhibition in Moscow Sakharov Center. These are all the same persons - from Ponomarev and Lukin (Putin's official human rights ombudsman - KC) to terrorists from the Kavkaz Center. All of them act all as a single system speaking about their support for such acts. They all become suddenly concerned about the freedom of art".
We would like to note in this connection that we are not aware of any "terrorists" among editors, technicians, journalists and writers of the Kavkaz Center. In addition, the KC has never issued a single word in support of any exhibition in Moscow Sakharov Center or to the Moscow feminist group.
It is worth mentioning that it is easy for the KGB to lie in Russia on what the Kavkaz Center writes because we are "blocked" by the KGB for Russian users inside Russia and we were practically unavailable worldwide due to a practically uninterrupted DDoS attack by the KGB with computers infested by "Kaspersky antivirus" starting from June 6, 2012.
