Rogozin said that the US involvement in the transfer of intelligence to Ukraine “will not be able to cover up”
Roscosmos General Director Dmitry Rogozin on his Telegram channel addressed CIA chief William Burns after his criticism of recent media leaks about the facts of the US intelligence transfer. USA to Ukraine.
Rogozin recalled the transmission by Washington of observations that were made by “orbital constellations of the United States, including Starlink, and the European Union.” “We are not vindictive, but we are evil and have a good memory,” he concluded.
It’s too late to drink Borjomi, Mr. Burns. You and I know each other well, we met at Spaso House. Do you remember what I’m waiting for? It is unlikely that he will be able to overlook the direct involvement of the United States in the killing of Russian troops and the transfer of intelligence.
On May 5, The New York Times, citing senior American officials, reported that the United States had passed intelligence information to the Ukrainian side that led to the death of the Russian military. According to the publication, the American authorities transmit information to kyiv about the events in the combat areas online. This information includes details of the movements of the Russian Armed Forces.
The number of officers allegedly killed is not disclosed. At the same time, Washington has repeatedly opposed the transfer to kyiv of data on the “most important” members of the Russian military leadership.
Ukrainian officials combined this data with their own intelligence information, including intercepted communications… to carry out artillery shelling and other attacks that killed Russian officers.
CNN also reported that the United States, at Ukraine’s request, provided information on the location of the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, the Russian cruiser Moskva. This happened shortly before the fire, after which the ship sank.
US President Joe Biden demanded to stop leaks about intelligence assistance to Ukraine. He announced it during a meeting with top US intelligence and defense officials.
The head of state described as “counterproductive” the information appearing in the media on the exchange of intelligence between the United States and Ukraine. He also noted that such news “distracts from our goal.”
The head of the CIA, William Burns, for his part, criticized the leaks in the media about the transfer of intelligence data from Washington to Ukraine. He stressed that such leaks are irresponsible and dangerous.
I absolutely agree that it is irresponsible, very risky and dangerous for people to talk too much, whether it is leaking in a private conversation or speaking publicly about specific intelligence issues.
US assistance to Ukraine
In early May, the US president promised to provide another military assistance package to Ukraine. He noted that it will also include 25,000 155mm caliber artillery shells, radar and electronic warfare equipment.
Biden also urged Congress to provide the funds requested by the White House to strengthen kyiv’s position. He noted that after this announcement, US funds that can be used to help the Ukrainian side in the field of security are almost exhausted.
Later it became known that the cost of a new package of US military assistance to Ukraine will be up to $150 million.
On May 9, the American leader plans to sign a bill on the provision of military aid to Kyiv under Lend-Lease. The “Law on Lending and Leasing to Protect Democracy in Ukraine” was passed by the House of Representatives on April 29. The document will allow the Ukrainian side to receive weapons from the United States under a simplified scheme.
The expanded powers will expire if the conflict ends and the number of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border is reduced to the state of March 2021.
