"By Violating the Laws of Other Countries, We Are Protecting Our Own"

On Monday, December 20, 2004, Moscow Vremya Novostey, a small-circulation paper focusing on business and political news in Moscow, Russia, published an interview with Lt-Gen Vadim Kirpichenko, former Consultant to the Director of Russia's foreign intelligence service, the Sluzhba Vneshney Razvedki (SVR). The translation of the interview was done by the US Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), and is available here. The interview was headlined "By Violating the Laws of Other Countries, We Are Protecting Our Own."

The techniques used by the SVA and its predecessor, the KGB, are still in use today against US targets including US businesses.
