I´m confused as well as you are. No one knows what´s happening. They won´t tell us. Russia demands to be told what´s going on also. Maybe we will eventually find out what´s happening some day? I certainly hope so.


Lindstrand did not detail on the scale of damage allegedly caused by the detainee, but said his activities could have a negative effect on Sweden's security and defense capabilities. SAPO is still refusing to unveil either details of investigation or which country the suspect was allegedly spying for. On February 21 Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the spy scandal could affect bilateral relations.

Denmark Confirms H5 Bird Flu

And now they have just confirmed another duck with H5N1 at "Prestø". They are creating new "bird flu zones" around Prestø, just like they did at Svinø. Prestø means "Priest Island" when translated into english. Isn´t that weird?

Ok, here is what we know:

  • There is bird flu in Sweden.
  • There is also mad cow disease recently discovered in Sweden
  • There is a Russian "spy" arrested in Sweden.
  • He happens to be an expert on virus.
  • The say his "criminal activities" has inflicted damage on Sweden´s "defence"
  • He is held in a place called Kungsholmen in Stockholm.
  • There are 2000 soldiers and 600 vehicles including tanks at Kungsholmen having a sudden exercise "in order to waste some surplus money within 2 weeks".
  • Sweden´s Foreign minister Laila Freivalds resigned (officially because of the Muhammed cartoon story)
  • Somebody are trying to push through the swedish law system very quickly, a new law regarding tapping into phones and other "spy" related stuff
  • The swedes are delaying giving any good answers to the public on what is going on
  • The Russians are jumping up and down in frustration
  • Lots of stuff is classified and top secret obviously
  • They will not say which country he has been "spying" for


    Somebody please help try putting the pieces together. Your guess is as good as mine. Facts are hidden and this is big. I can smell it.

    Today Swedish court once again ruled to keep the Russian "spy" in custody. They still won´t say which country he is supposed to have been "spying" for. And they refuse to give any more details about the case. The Russian embassy in Stockholm voices protest.


    RIA Novosti: Swedish court rules to keep suspected Russian spy in custody

    30/ 03/ 2006



    A Swedish court ruled Thursday that a Russian national suspected of espionage should be remanded in custody.

    Lindstrand gave no details on the damage allegedly caused by the detainee, but said his activities could have a negative effect on Sweden's security and defense capabilities. SAPO is still refusing to unveil either details of the investigation or which country the suspect was allegedly spying for.

    Media starts to wonder what is going on, and they say there are many strange things in the case about the Russian "spy". Still everything is very hush hush and media seems silenced as well. On April 12 they might reveal something to the public, or at least they have to do something unless they are going to let him go. Maybe extend his arrest some more? Maybe they are just going to postpone until end of June when some new law goes active in Sweden? This law will probably make it possible for them to use some evidence they have in the case against him? I don´t know. Whatever "criminal activities" he did, it seems serious.


    Kommersant: Zamyatnin’s Arrest Extended

    Apr. 03, 2006



    Andrey Zamyatnin


    There are lots of strange things in Zamyatnin’s case. Even though all information is kept secret, some conclusions could be made. Despite the leakage, which was intentional, perhaps, whereby all accusations root not in research activities of the scientist, but in some other mysterious actions of Russia’s biologist, a raft of his colleagues were interrogated, his working place was thoroughly searched and the hard disc of his computer and some files were withdrawn.

    Russia’s scientists in Uppsale University of Agriculture, where Zamyatnin had worked, attempted to express their views through the central newspapers of Sweden. But the local media dropped the topic as if by someone’s command

    According to interviews, Zamyatnin was targeted at research and had no time for anything else, he never received any data that could be called secret and he was living from salary to salary, borrowing from his friends.

    The Russian "spy" was released. They had no proof, or something...


    Axis News

    07.04.2006 - 11:55 (GMT)



    Swedish authorities on Friday said they were releasing from custody a Russian researcher who had been suspected of spying for a foreign power at Uppsala university's agricultural genetics laboratory, Reuters reported. The arrest of Andrey Zamyatnin in February sparked diplomatic protests from Moscow. But Swedish Chief Prosecutor Tomas Lindstrand said there was no proof he had put Swedish security or commercial interests at risk. Zamyatnin was arrested in the university town of Uppsala, just north of Stockholm, on suspicion of carrying out "espionage activities" which put Sweden's armed forces at risk, according to the counter-espionage service SAPO.

    "The Russian Foreign Ministry hails the release, even though it regrets the fact that he had been in custody for such a long time without charges", Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mikhail Kamynin told Interfax.

    I'm still confused over it all though. What are your thoughts on it?

    I think that he actually did some kind of "criminal act" (whatever it was), but they didn´t have valid or legal proof or something. I hope we someday get to know what really happened. Now the Russians are screaming for compensation since he was never charged but in arrest since Feb 15th.



    RIA Novosti: Charges dropped against Russian scientist in Swedish spy scandal

    22:04 - 07/ 04/ 2006



    Police detained 30-year-old Zamyatnin, working as an assistant at an agricultural university in Uppsala researching plant viruses, on February 15. A court ruled to remand him in custody on three times. Sweden's counter-espionage service (SAPO) said the researcher was being held on suspicion of spying for a certain country, but is still refusing to unveil either details of the investigation or which country Zamyatnin was allegedly spying for.

    Earlier, a local newspaper quoted Swedish Chief Prosecutor Tomas Lindstrand as saying that Zamyatnin's activities could have a negative effect on Sweden's security and defense capabilities.

    Yup, it seems like the case was that they didn´t have "enough evidence". And the Russian "spy" was flying to Moscow today according to this article. The article also confirms that he has been kept in the Kronoberg detention facility since he was arrested.


    ITAR-TASS: Russian researcher returns from Stockholm to Moscow

    15.04.2006



    Russian researcher Andrei Zamyatin will fly from Stockholm to Moscow on Saturday.

    Zamyatin’s lawyer Ola Salomonsson told Itar-Tass, “The prosecutor called me on the phone this morning and said he could not bring in an indictment and so he stops the preliminary investigation.” “The Prosecutor’s Office has not collected enough evidence,” Salomonsson added. Zamyatin was released on Friday morning. The Russian ambassador and consul met him at the gates of the Kronoberg detention facility where he had been kept since the moment of detention in the middle of February.

    Zamyatin has been working in Sweden as a guest specialist for four years, conducting virology studies at Uppsala Agriculture University’s Institute of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics.

    The Swedish government has been ordered to pay compensation to the Russian "spy".


    MosNews: Sweden Ordered to Pay Compensation to Russian Scientist Cleared of Espionage Charges

    09.11.2006



    The Swedish Chancellor of Justice has ordered his government to pay 80,000 Krona ($11,000) to Andrei Zamyatnin, a Russian biologist who was jailed for two months on espionage charges earlier this year.

    The 29-year-old scientist received a $200,000 Swedish grant last year to spend four years in the country to research how to protect potatoes from viruses. Zamyatnin received the money after defending his thesis at Moscow State University’s Beloyzyorsky Institute of Physical and Biological Chemistry, said his father, Alexander Zamyatnin.

    They let him go?

    Wow, i was really starting to think this guy has committed Biological espionage. Hence the bird-flu. Had the makings of a James Bond film!


    Maybe letting him go is disinformation?

    Russia Inspected Swedish Military Facilities


    Something strange just happened. Russia apparently contacted Sweden all of a sudden. They demanded to be allowed to inspect some Swedish military facilities on short notice! And Sweden obeyed, and let the Russians inspect! Svea Livgarde at Kungsängen, Stockholm, was told on Friday (June 8 2007) that the Russians would be coming for inspection on Monday morning.

    Remember where the Russian "spy" was in detention? He was at Kronobergshäktet, Kungsholmen, Stockholm. And Svea Livgarde had this exercise with 2,000 soldiers, tanks and etc. while the Russian "spy" was in prison there...

    The Russians showed up on Monday (June 11 2007 - last Monday) and was allowed in for inspection. From there, they went to Enköping and inspected something. Then they went to Försvarsmaktens Luftstridsskola in Uppsala! What is going on?!!
    Media has been silent about this!

    Sweden's new wiretapping law 'much worse than the Stasi'

    Instead of just criminal suspects having their phones tapped, now everyone will be tapped via their phones, emails, web surfing, faxes etc.

    It can still be stopped. Maybe...


    10 Jun 08


    With just a week to go before the Swedish parliament is expected to pass a controversial wiretapping law, Pirate Party leader Rickard Falkvinge urges people to do all they can to block the legislation.

    Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

    However, whether this law is passed or not, I'm sure it will have no effect on the Russian scientist. That case is closed, I guess. I still wonder what the Russian were doing, inspecting the Swedish military facilities. And why the Swedes let them do it. If Sweden was a member of NATO (which they're not), I doubt they would have been allowed to do that.



    edit: "It", not "I". lol (I can't be stopped...
    )

    Well, this certainly has been a long-running situation, that in my opinion, hasn't received the recognition that it should have by ATS. I have a feeling that in the future, we'll look back on these events as being very significant.
