Who is Mr. Flynn? For Putin, he became a recruited agent who could be and will be used – Felshtinsky

on Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:31 pm
Who is Mr. Flynn? For Putin, he became a recruited agent who could be and will be used – Felshtinsky

Michael Flynn, former national security advisor for the president of the USA Donald Trump, has received $530,000 from Russia via Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin as a middleman. Yuri Felshtinsky, a Russian-American historian, author of "Blowing up Russia" and "The Corporation: Russia and KGB in the Age of President Putin" wrote about this in an exclusive material GORDON. Не claims that Trump’s ex-advisor was on the payroll of the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

The famous "Lock-Her-Up" General may go to jail for treason. Let me tell you why: in 2015-2016 he has received approximately $600,000 in Russian money. Let me tell you how: a major portion of it came from the Russian bank Sviaz-bank when in December of 2007 Sviaz-bank issued a $150 million loan to the Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin and his Dutch and Russian partners. This loan was never paid back, and in 2016, a minor portion of it, around $530,000, was paid by Alptekin to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn. It never had anything to do with Turkey or lobbying Turkish interests. This was just the cover. It had everything to do with Russia and Putin.

Ekim Alptekin worked with Flynn until November 16, 2016. Photo: Kamil Ekim Alptekin / Facebook



That is exactly why Flynn has registered himself as a lobbyist for Turkey only in March 2017 after massive payments to him became known to US law enforcement agencies and information about payments was leaked to the media. On March 7, 2017, Flynn filed with National Security Division under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) statement disclosing that his company – Flynn Intel Group Inc. – was paid $ 530,000 in September-November 2016 for the work on behalf of a small Dutch company Inovo BV, owned by a Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin (who also owned other companies including Inovo Turkije). BV – in Dutch means “Besloten Vennootschap” – a private company. Flynn’s contract with Inovo BV was signed on August 9, 2016, according to one source, or on September 2016, according to the other.

The total amount was $600,000 for the three months of work. The last transfer of $145,000 was received by Flynn on November 14, 2016, when Trump was already elected as the President. Flynn’s “work” for Alptekin was now finished and he filed a termination report for the contract with Inovo BV indicating November 16, 2016, as a day of contract termination. The next day, November 17, 2016, he was named the National Security Advisor for the President-elect of the United States of America.

However, the paperwork on contract termination was submitted to the Senate only the next day after Justice Department had started showing signs of interest in Flynn’s interactions with Inovo BV. In addition, that paperwork showed that there was only $5,000 received by Flynn Intel Group Inc. for its services. That was a blunt lie. On March 10, 2017, The New York Times wrote: “that presumably indicates that he did not define most of the services he would provide Mr. Alptekin as lobbying under the law“. Well, $5,000 was earned for a lobbying work for Turkey. And the rest, $525,000, for something other than that? What could it be?

“I disagree with the filing”, – said Alptekin on the telephone from Istanbul in reply to the reporter's question about Flynn’s registered as foreign agent working for Turkey. – "It would be different if I was working for the government of Turkey, but I am not taking directions from anyone in the [Turkish] government". Indeed, Alptekin does not work for Turkish government and never did. His small Dutch company Inovo BV only showed losses in its financial reports, and was unable to pay $530,000 to Flynn unless it had previously received this money from elsewhere.

It all started in April 2014 when Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, lost his job after less than two years in office. He somehow survived for the next year. In October 2014 he started his own consulting firm. ”The business was opaque, making little public, not even an address. When a reporter went looking for it last fall, he tracked it down to an Alexandria, Va., office building operating out of the nondescript headquarters of another firm, called the White Canvas Group. In the interview in October, Mr. Flynn offered only a vague description of the firm. He said he had clients in Japan and the Middle East and that he worked on cyber training, aviation operations and energy business,” – as The New York Times described Flynn’s business.

Then, a new employer came to help: the State of Russia. Since August 2015, Lt. Gen. Flynn started earning a salary of $11,250 per month. But his employer had to be creative.

For example, in August 2015, the $11,250 was received from a Russian charter cargo airline Volga-Dnepr Airlines. It continued in September 2015 with the payment of $11,250 from Kaspersky Government Security Solutions Inc., a U.S. subsidiary of Kaspersky Lab, a Russian-based cybersecurity firm. Well, you may ask any Russian, and he/she will tell you that Kaspersky's firm is affiliated with the FSB of Russia. But Flynn is not a Russian. He is а US General. He probably did not know. The same pattern continued with the monthly payments of $11,250 for October 2015, November 2015, December 2015 (for a total of $33,750 for three months). Nominally Flynn received this money for traveling to Moscow for a few days in December 2015. It was a fee for an interview for Russian propaganda TV channel ‘Russia Today’ (RT). During his stay in Moscow he took part in a celebration of RT’s 10th anniversary. At the ceremony he was seated at the same table with Vladimir Putin, what was widely covered by media worldwide...................

Who is Mr.Cohen? Trump’s attorney received $350,000 for the Izmaylovskaya Criminal Group — Felshtinsky

on Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:43 pm
Who is Mr.Cohen? Trump’s attorney received $350,000 for the Izmaylovskaya Criminal Group — Felshtinsky

U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen received a check for $350,000 in 1999 for one of the leaders of the Izmaylovskaya Organized Crime Group. It was reported in an exclusive material for "GORDON" by Yuri Felshtinsky, a Russian American historian and the author of the book “Blowing up Russia: Terror from Within”. Based on more than a hundred archival records of American courts, which are open to the public in the US, the expert maintains that the Russian hockey player Vladimir Malakhov was used in the scheme, and the whole story was revealed accidentally because of a check, which became the subject of litigation. All the supporting documents are available in the editorial office.

Michael D. Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, has been working for The Trump Organization since 2007 and is a member of the Trump World Tower Condominium Board and the Trump Park Avenue Condominium Board. He was involved in the recent attempt to implement the so-called peaceful Russian-Ukrainian plan developed by Felix Sater and Andrey Artemenko, which received extensive coverage in the world press. He has also been a confidant of the Russian organized criminality since at least 1999 and has been laundering money for Russian citizens having or suspected to have connections with the Russian mafia.

It follows from court materials of 2006-2011, which are kept in the U.S. court archives.

In particular, on 19 January, 1999 Michael Cohen received a check for $350,000 from the Russian hockey player Vladimir Malakhov, now living in Miami, who in 1999-2000 played for different clubs in Canada, New Jersey, and New York.



This check was deposited by Cohen to one of his attorney accounts, but, incidentally, it became the focus of litigation in 2006.

On 2 May, 2007, following a phone conversation, Michael Cohen received a letter from Marc D. Wolfe on this matter:

"The purpose of this letter is to summarize and confirm our conversation of this date, as well as the information that you have provided us over the past week regarding the above matter.

As you know, we are in possession of a check in the amount of $350,000 written to a “Michael Cohen” at the address of “Michael Cohen, Esq,. 500 West 56th Street, New York, N.Y. 10019”. You have reviewed a copy of the back and front of this check, as well as the first page of the Complaint (including case style), which we provided.

After such review, you have indicated that you did occupy this office as of the date of this check (1/19/99), and were the only Michael Cohen there at that time. Otherwise, you are completely unfamiliar with any aspect of this incident, including the identity of any of the parties to this lawsuit. You state that you never had any involvement in this transaction whatsoever. You also state that the endorsement on the back of the check is not your signature.

You also indicate that you are unfamiliar with the account numbers listed on the check, but have asked your accountant to ascertain whether you were affiliated with any of the accounts. Should this investigation reveal that you were affiliated one or more of these accounts, we would appreciate knowing whether this check was deposited into said account, and the ultimate disposition of the funds".


In other words, Cohen mentioned in the phone conversation with Attorney Wolfe that he doesn’t know anything about the check, that the endorsement on the back of the check is not his signature, and that he was unfamiliar with the number of the account to which the check was deposited. In a nutshell, Cohen claimed to not have received $350,000.......................

Putin’s group-mate, a former KGB spy: You seriously think that Putin, who is making a face-lift, will unleash a nuclear war? His Botox will melt from the fear

on Wed Jun 14, 2017 9:57 pm
Putin’s group-mate, a former KGB spy: You seriously think that Putin, who is making a face-lift, will unleash a nuclear war? His Botox will melt from the fear

A former Soviet intelligence officer and now an American financial analyst Yuri Shvets told "Gordon" that in spite of the official biography, the Russian president has never worked in intelligence office because of "below average abilities", about what nicknames Putin had in the KGB and what two papers signed by US President would be enough to derail the economy of Russia.

A native of Ukraine, a former officer of the First Chief Directorate of the KGB, a graduate of the Andropov Institute of KGB, and now the American financial analyst Yuri Shvets in the 1980s, at the height of the "cold war" was a scout in the United States. Was working as an undercover reporter in Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (TASS) to collect and analyze information about possible sudden nuclear attack on the Soviet Union by America.

In 1990, Shvets retired from service and three years later he emigrated to the United States, where published a book, "The Washington residency: My Life As A KGB spy in America." The last 18 years, the former spy works as a head of US firm on gathering information and assessing the commercial risks of the companies planning to conduct multi-million dollar business on the territory of the former Soviet Union and around the world, including Latin America, Africa and Asia.

Yuri Shvets – one of the key witnesses at the ongoing London public hearing into the murder of former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko. It was Shvets who helped Litvinenko to collect and analyze the file on Viktor Ivanov – ally of Vladimir Putin, Director of Federal Drug Control Service of Russia. The dossier was compiled with information on connections of Putin and Ivanov with Tambov organized crime group that in the 1990s was engaged in drug trafficking and money laundering of one of the largest Colombian drug cartels. According to the materials of the British investigation, exactly Shvets and Litvinenko crumbed the deal of one of Europe's leading corporations with Russia, from which Ivanov allegedly planned to personally get a huge "cut".

In addition, Yuri Shvets as an expert was involved in the immigration case of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko, and in 2002-2005 transcribed and analyzed "Melnichenko tape" – records of wiretaps of former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma in the investigation into the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze. Shvets published the transcript on the Ukrainian Internet resources under the pseudonym Petr Liutyy.

In an exclusive interview with "GORDON" Yuri Shvets said that a year ago, before the active hostilities in the Donbass, he was trying to help "eliminate armed separatists" and what the Ukrainian leadership responded him; explained why he considers Putin a man with the abilities of "below average" and "What two pieces of paper would be enough to sign" for US President Barack Obama to make Russia's economy collapse.

– Is it true that you studied with Vladimir Putin in the Andropov Institute of the KGB?

– This information appeared in May 2001 on the site of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, the article stated that I am a traitor because I broadcast exposing things about the KGB, as indicated in brackets: "In the early '80s Yuri Shvets was a groupmate of Vladimir Putin in the academy of the KGB. "

– Why did the Russian special services needed to expose you in 2001?

– I have no idea. I had nothing to do with the post-Soviet Russia, I have never been a citizen of the Russian Federation, I even did not have a Russian passport. In 1993, I went to the US, and three years later published a book of memoirs, "The Washington residency: My Life As A KGB Spy in America." Hardly memoirs appeared in Russia began howling, saying that Shvets has issued all the KGB secrets. What secrets where they talking about if the Soviet Union had collapsed a long time ago, the KGB at that time did not exist, and the chairman of the KGB, Vladimir Kryuchkov had already served in prison for an attempted coup in August 1991.

– Maybe the howl went up because you know too much about the past of Putin as an intelligence officer?

– Putin has never worked in intelligence.

– But the Russian president's official biography states that he served as a counter-intelligence officer in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), and then - in the German Democratic Republic (GDR).

– After graduating from the Andropov Institute Putin was sent to the territorial authorities - the KGB in Leningrad and Leningrad region. This is extremely important for the understanding of "Who is mister Putin?" and what is happening with Russia.........................
