    Re: Spain Probes Russia’s Role in Catalonia Referendum

    Spain’s early-stage investigation suggested that Unit 29155 aimed to take advantage of the crisis to destabilize Spain, El Pais reported Friday. The alleged Russian spying activities were not coordinated with Catalonia’s pro-independence figures, it said. The investigation reportedly includes information about one of the three GRU agents suspected of poisoning former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain last year.
    Unit 29155 is the assassination unit and it is less likely to get involved in a disinformation campaign, which can be directed from an office in St. Petersburg. Russian trolls are quite good at posting in English but penetrating Spanish-language social networking sites is next to impossible.

    Russians appear to be the new AIDS they're everywhere I tell you. I knew we were in trouble when Trump and Pelosi both got hammer and cycle tats in their taints. We're doomed it's time to start hanging Putin portraits in post offices and memorizing the communist manifesto.
