According to Russian KGB media
, a hardened Turkish spy is hiding in Moscow. Russian KGB-FSB thugs say:
"Turkey has formally declared that the plane that flew from Moscow to Damascus had been carrying military cargo.
- International law prohibits the transportation of weapons or ammunition on passenger aircraft, said Turkish prime minister Erdogan. - Even if it's pocket knives - you can't do that. And here we are speaking about ammunition that a Russian company has sent to Syrian defence ministry.
The plane of Syrian Airlines was forced to land in Ankara on Wednesday night. After that, Turkish security forces seized a part of the cargo during a nine-hour search.
Meanwhile, there are questions as how Turkish intelligence services became aware of the military equipment that had been loaded in Moscow. Russian FSB has already launched a probe. It turns out that Ankara surprisingly knew exactly which aircraft should be detained.
A few days before, a Syrian aircraft with Russian emergencies ministry's cargo was allowed to fly to Syria over Turkey's air space without problem. That means that information about the forbidden cargo was received from Moscow.
This spring, by the way, Turkish Airlines transferred all its flights and cargo service in Russia to Moscow Vnukovo airport, the departure point of the ill-fated Syrian airbus. And a professional intelligence officer could operate in Vnukovo under cover of the airline manager.
Another possibility is that information, sent to Turkish authorities, could originate from some other intelligence service. It is no accident that the US praised Turkish authorities for successful interception of the weapons cargo before the information became available about the whole incident in the first place, the KGB thugs lament.
It is to be noted that according to KC analysts, the information most likely leaked not from Moscow, but Damascus. Assad's military know too well that the days of the bloody Russian puppet Assad are numbered, and it is no surprise that some of them may be establishing contacts with democratic camp countries.
