Intelligence news

China

"April 23:
Two former Russian military pilots are being accused of "high treason in the form of espionage" for China by the Federal Security Service, reports StrategyPage.com, a military affairs news source. The pilots illegally acquired spare military equipment parts and secret information on Russian aviation equipment with a plan to sell to Chinese buyers. The Russian Far East, between Manchuria in the west and the Sea of Japan in the east, is considered a hotbed of Chinese espionage, where Chinese agents have regularly been discovered."

Norway / Russia

"NORWEGIAN RADAR WORRIES MOSCOW. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Chizhov told a hearing at the Federation Council, the upper house of the Russian parliament, that Russia is worried by the fact that Norway has a radar station, Globus 2, capable of controlling a territory of 35,000 kilometers. The radar station is meant to help NATO control Russian territory, Chizhov told the hearing, but added that "Norway keeps insisting that the purpose of the station is space control." Chizhov also criticized Finland for trying to "expand its influence in the boundaries of northern Europe and abandoning its policy of neutrality. Sweden might soon assume the same position," he remarked. (Source: Novosti Press Agency, via LC)
