After a destabilization campaign in Moldova, the poisoning of an arms dealer in Bulgaria, and an assassination attempt of a former Russian spy in Britain, it is becoming more clear that these events have been orchestrated by Russia. An elite unit inside the Russian intelligence system specifically meant for subversion, sabotage, and assassination is being used to destabilize Europe altogether. Western officials only recently discovered Unit 29155 which has been operating for over a decade and is behind the attacks. This seems to be part of president Putin’s “hybrid-warfare” which utilizes propaganda, hacking and disinformation, and military confrontation. Having identified this group, learning more about it could help defend Europe from future Russian infiltration.
