Putin Arrests the Head of the FSB and His Deputy


Russia is reportedly partially stalled in its war against Ukraine by Ukrainian resistance and poor logistical support. Russia denies it, but Russian President Putin allegedly had his FSB chief and his deputy arrested. He might blame them for the poor intel and the slow progress through Ukraine. The Director of the Russian National Guard was also fired, possibly for information leaking to the media.


Colonel-General Sergei Beseda, the head of the Fifth Service of the FSB intelligence service, and Beseda’s deputy, Anatoly Bolyukh, were being held under house arrest, according to a report by the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) non-partisan think tank.

The Fifth Service was responsible for providing Russian President Vladimir Putin with intelligence about Ukraine leading up to the war.

Vladimir Osechkin, an exiled Russian human rights activist, confirmed the arrest to The Times as well, adding that FSB officers had searched over 20 addresses around Moscow of fellow FSB officers suspected of being in contact with journalists.

“The formal basis for conducting these searches is the accusation of the embezzlement of funds earmarked for subversive activities in Ukraine,” said Osechkin to the Times. “The real reason is unreliable, incomplete and partially false information about the political situation in Ukraine.”

The Deputy Director of the National Guard of the Russian Federation Roman Gavrilov was also fired. This was reported to URA.RU by sources familiar with the situation, specifying that his dismissal was personally initiated by the director of the Federal Service of the National Guard Troops of the Russian Federation Viktor Zolotov.

The reasons are unknown but it could be over these leaks to journalists.

It is also noted that Gavrilov was an employee of the FSO. “Zolotov got him a job. Now, he himself initiated the dismissal, ”added the source.

Former US Intel Agent Says Putin’s Angry

“It means that Putin is angry and recognized that he was not provided with accurate intelligence,” Rebekah Koffler, a former U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency agent and author of “Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat America”, told Fox News Digital about the significance of the report.

Koffler believes that Putin has assessed that his inability to capture control of Ukraine in a swift manner has to do with “poor intelligence” that has contributed to two major miscalculations.

Those two missteps, Koffler says, are the failure to anticipate how fiercely Ukrainians would fight for their homeland and the role technology would play in bringing the images of destruction to households across the world.

Whatever the case, Putin can’t stop now without a win or he’s finished.

Not very serious injuries considering they hit a “land mine”. I would want to know their location when hitting the mine, because the Ukraine military mined the Donbass “Grey Zone” for years. It killed many civilians along that area, including women and children.

A great many interviews from locals have claimed it has been the Ukrainians who shelled civilian areas. That coincides with past practices. One segment of a video showed a school completely demolished and the playground equipment next to it was untouched at all.

In the early days of the war the Ukraine military was stationed at the airport, Donetsk I believe, and constantly shelled apartments, hospitals and schools. The militias fought a long battle to regain the airport. One journalist on the scene, who’s been there for eight years, says Ukraine military is forcing people into basements and attacking Russians from those locations.
