I have not read the whole thread, so sorry if already posted.
The german News Magazine "Der Spiegel" was one of the first german medias to report the Bellingcat "Analysis".
They reported it as facts, without asking questions
Just a day later they posted an interview with a picture analyst who basically said
Bellingcat betreibt Kaffesatzleserei
Roughly: Bellingcat is reading tea-leaves. And the "analysis" is just rubbish.
Next day they had the decency to post an op-ed in which they apologized for posting the Bellingcat report as truth, and stated that they should have done a better job in fact checking:
Was wir aus der Berichterstattung über den Bellingcat-Report lernen (What we should learn about reporting Bellingcat-Report)
And now comes the bombshell: Bellingcat-Autor war hauptamtlicher Stasi-Mitarbeiter
English; Bellingcat Author was a fulltime Stasi Employee !!
The Bellingcat Author who uses the moniker Timmi Allen was working full time for the Stasi (Staaatssicherheitsdienst of the former DDR (east germany)!
Interesting development on the whole Bellingcat report. And very sad, that most medias just posted the first story (Bellingcat report) because it fits the agenda.

Well the Stasi was the secret police for East Germany before reunification. E. Germany was controlled by the USSR so im not sure why the stasi issue is being raised.
After all Putin was also stationed in E. Germany as KGB.
Ex-Stasi Spy Chief Markus Wolf Hired By Homeland Security?
Political analyst Al Martin, who has in the past proven accurate in getting ahead of the news curve, is reporting that Homeland Security have hired former Stasi head, the 'Silver Fox' Markus Wolf.
The US, after years of acting as the world's policeman, has finally revealed itself to instead be the unmarked van that's constantly parked just down the world's street.

Well for starters I would stop using Prisonplanet as a source. They do the same thing Russian propaganda does. Print claims and say the info came from a secret / anonymous source.
Secondly my response was to Svetlana84 and the claims made in his/her post, which has absolutely nothing to do with what you brought up.
As for who the Stasi worked for - that would be KGB.
Is it to much to remain on topic? Markus Wolf never worked for homeland security. That claim was made by the former head of the KGB, General Yevgeni Primakov, to the BBC. Markus Wolf died in 2006. even your own source states he worked for the E. Germans / Soviets. Just as Putin is doing now in Ukraine, the USSR refused to grant him asylum when German reunification happened and they cut him loose / on his own.
Now, back on topic.
