Italy accuses Russia of espionage hidden behind the medical aid for COVID-19

ROME, BM, ($1= euros) – One of the most popular Italian publications in the world and Italy, La Repubblica, comes out with a thorough analysis of the help that Russia provided in 2020 when the country was brutally attacked by the spreading covid infection COVID-19. We remind you that then Russia sent planes with Russian military doctors, medicines, and equipment to help the Italians deal with the threat.

La Repubblica writes that the Russians acted insidiously and spied on Italian territory. This espionage was not aimed at NATO military facilities, facilities, or bases, but mainly at the awareness of the infection and the threat of the virus.

“Intelligence operation. Not to spy on NATO bases, but to get all the secrets about Kovid and how to counter him. This is how the” From Russia with Love “mission allowed the Kremlin to defend itself from the virus and rush to Sputnik. V. The Italian government was deceived,” the report said.

“The Russian army unexpectedly found itself on the territory of at least two of NATO’s most important bases in Italy. In Brescia, there is a battle base, bomb shelters for Italian aeronautics, and a place for the deployment of American nuclear weapons. When the Russians arrived, our services “They were mainly concerned with securing NATO bases. No one thought that at that time the most important information for foreign intelligence was the data on the coronavirus as the most important and sought-after weapon – vaccines,” La Repubblica reported.

The Russian media began with a reaction against their Italian counterparts. Aviapro journalists say the allegations are more than absurd and are intended to worsen relations between Russia and the West. The Russians recall that their military and doctors did not have the opportunity to move freely around the country. On the contrary, according to Aviapro, the territory designated for the positioning of the Russian doctors was very far from any Italian or NATO base.

Political analysts do not rule out the possibility that such allegations could be an attempt to discredit relations between Italy and Russia.
