Rus­sia’s rage against MoS

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Mark Ni­col

A KREM­LIN spokes­woman has lashed out at The Mail on Sun­day af­ter we re­ported se­cu­rity con­cerns over Rus­sian jour­nal­ists ‘spy­ing’ at UK mil­i­tary bases.

Last Sun­day we re­vealed how a cam­era crew from Rus­sia’s main state broad­caster had been seen se­cretly film­ing at Bri­tain’s cy­ber war­fare HQ.

Bri­tish troops were is­sued with pic­tures of TV cor­re­spon­dent Timur Si­ra­ziev and his car af­ter he was caught on CCTV cam­eras out­side Deni­son Bar­racks in Berk­shire, home to the mod­ern-war­fare spe­cial­ist 77th Bri­gade.

Si­ra­ziev’s re­port, broad­cast on Moscow’s Chan­nel One sta­tion, ac­cused 77 Bri­gade of fal­si­fy­ing ev­i­dence of Rus­sian in­volve­ment in chem­i­cal at­tacks in Syria. He also told view­ers that Bri­tish claims that Pres­i­dent Putin was re­spon­si­ble for the at­tempted as­sas­si­na­tion of ex-KGB agent Sergei Skri­pal in Sal­is­bury were a ‘hoax’.

Now the Rus­sian For­eign Min­istry’s spokes­woman Maria Zhakarova has ac­cused The Mail on Sun­day of ‘vi­o­lat­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion rules’ by pub­lish­ing the story. She said on state TV: ‘We have got all the in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing who, how many times, how, when and un­der what cir­cum­stances and even with what aims they have vi­o­lated our ac­cred­i­ta­tion rules. If this car­ries on like this we will re­spond in kind.’
