(DEFENCE SECURITY ASIA) — A top Russian security official said in an article published on Friday that Moscow had “neutralised” hundreds of foreign spies in recent years.

Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of Russia’s Security Council, wrote in Russia’s foreign intelligence agency’s house magazine:

“In recent years, hundreds of employees of foreign intelligence services, as well as other persons involved in organising intelligence and subversive activities against our country and our strategic partners, have been identified and neutralised”.

Patrushev, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, is a former director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and is seen as a key advocate of hardline, hawkish policies within the Kremlin.

Who is Nikolai Patrushev?

He was born on July 11, 1951, in Leningrad, Soviet Union (now St. Petersburg, Russia) and has held several important positions within the Russian government and security apparatus.

He was the Former Director of the FSB: Patrushev served as the Director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) from 1999 to 2008.

 The FSB is one of Russia’s principal security and intelligence agencies, responsible for domestic security, counterintelligence, and various other national security functions.

After his tenure as FSB Director, Patrushev became the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia in 2008, a position that he held at least until September 2021.

The Security Council plays a crucial role in advising the President on national security matters and formulating security policies.

Patrushev is known to be a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His role in both the FSB and the Security Council suggests that he has been influential in shaping Russia’s domestic and foreign security policies.

He is often associated with a hawkish stance on security and foreign policy issues and has been vocal about Russia’s interests and its assertiveness on the international stage. — DSA
