Israeli spies 'watched Russian agents breach Kaspersky software' - BBC News
Israeli spies looked on as Russian hackers breached Kaspersky cyber-security software two years ago, US media report.
The Russians were allegedly attempting to gather data on US intelligence programs, according to the New York Times and Washington Post.
Israeli agents made the discovery after breaching the software themselves.
Kaspersky has said it was neither involved in nor aware of the situation and denies collusion with authorities.
Last month, the US government decided to stop using the Russian firm's software on its computers.
The Israelis are said to have notified the US, which led to the ban on Kaspersky programs.

BAE Systems workers issue job cuts warning
[ we are all in this together ] They say the problem comes from slower release of Ministry of Defence (MoD) funding for Type 26 warships.
That means work on them will start later than planned, and will be carried out more slowly, probably requiring fewer workers.
Hundreds of jobs have been lost on the Clyde in the past 18 months as BAE reduced shipbuilding capacity.

The Pentagon has fired the first shot in a new arms race | Mary Dejevsky | Opinion | The Guardian
In a speech in Washington last week, previewing his announcement, Ash Carter said he would ask for spending on US military forces in Europe to be quadrupled in the light of “Russian aggression”. The allocation for combating Islamic State, in contrast, is to be increased by 50%. The message is unambiguous: as viewed from the Pentagon, the threat from Russia has become more alarming, suddenly, even than the menace that is Isis. [...] In the last months of his presidency, this detachment is ending. The additional funds for Europe’s defence are earmarked for new bases and weapons stores in Poland and the Baltic states. There will be more training for local Nato troops, more state-of-the-art hardware and more manoeuvres. [ ... + MH17 downing w Russian ground to air defense missile ]

Russland und Syrien: Das Ende der alten Weltordnung - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viel wichtiger aber ist, nach vorne zu schauen. Die alten Sicherheitsstrukturen aus dem vergangenen Jahrhundert taugen nicht mehr. Nach dem Ende des ersten Kalten Krieges haben die Regierungen versäumt, sie weiterzuentwickeln und sich naiv auf der Friedensdividende ausgeruht. Der Krieg in der Ukraine und das russische Abenteuer in Syrien sind die Folge dieses Versagens. Die eigene Sicherheit oder Einflusssphäre auf Kosten anderer erhöhen zu wollen, führt nicht zu mehr, sondern zu weniger Sicherheit und Stabilität. Europa braucht deshalb neue Absprachen über Sicherheit und Zusammenarbeit. Europa braucht ein neues Helsinki.

Russians despair at food destruction as Moscow says it is having desired effect | World news | The Guardian
Russia’s move to ostentatiously destroy banned food imports at the border has sparked debate in a country where millions live below the poverty line [...] Moscow’s reciprocal measures against countries that sanctioned Russia over its actions in Ukraine have been in place for a year, but the new law stipulating the destruction of contraband shipments at the border came into force on Thursday. Importing fruit, vegetables, meat and cheeses from the EU and other countries that instituted sanctions against Russia is banned. Moscow says importers have tried to get round the ban by putting fake labels on produce, claiming it is made in Brazil, Belarus or another sanction-free country. [...] The aim is to hurt western agricultural producers, and in some countries it has indeed had a major economic effect. Nevertheless, food prices have gone up in Russia as a result, and the latest move to destroy imports has created outcry, even among many who are loyal to the government.

Russia will fork Sailfish OS to shut out pesky Western spooks
Paranoia over NSA tampering spurs de-Westernisation drive // well only the Paranoid survive. [...] Russia’s Minister of Communications and Mass Media, Nikolai Nikiforov, has taken part in talks to form a consortium that will aid Russia in developing a custom mobile OS, reportedly a forked version of Jolla’s Sailfish OS, to lessen its dependence on Western technology. Nikiforov held a working meeting last week with the leadership of Hong Kong-based Sailfish Holdings, developer of the quietly admired Sailfish OS. Alongside other participants, the parties involved discussed the use of open-source software in the public and private sectors, taking into account technical, economic and political factors, the latter of which is expected to include United States’ interference with exported technologies.

[ unaccountable, free for all to hack anything that is in the domestic interest, can be corporate intelligence, trade secrets, patents, corporate documents & communications; Russia, China, Germany, Brazil, India. The NEW COLD WAR. see also 2015 BND affair with selectors. ] Government legislation to exempt GCHQ from prosecution on charges of illegal hacking has been passed and come into effect – apparently torpedoing an ongoing claim against the surveillance agency being heard by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal. Last July, a coalition of internet service providers and international organisations teamed up with Privacy International to take legal action against GCHQ. Their claim, which arrived in court today, has been hobbled by what the privacy warriors said was the revelation that the government had quietly ushered through legislation amending the Computer Misuse Act to exempt GCHQ and law enforcement from prosecution, and did so while the case was ongoing.

BBC News - Ukraine: UK and EU 'badly misread' Russia
The House of Lords EU committee claimed Europe "sleepwalked" into the crisis. The EU had not realised the depth of Russian hostility to its plans for closer relations with Ukraine, it said. It comes as French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke about the crisis at a joint news conference in Paris. Ill-equipped The committee's report said Britain had not been "active or visible enough" in dealing with the situation in Ukraine. It blamed Foreign Office cuts, which it said led to fewer Russian experts working there, and less emphasis on analysis. A similar decline in EU foreign ministries had left them ill-equipped to formulate an "authoritative response" to the crisis, it said. The report claimed that for too long the EU's relationship with Moscow had been based on the "optimistic premise" that Russia was on a trajectory to becoming a democratic country.

Nato: Jakob Augstein über Russland, Ukraine und den Kalten Krieg - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Denken des Kalten Krieges folgte der ausweglosen Logik der Spieltheorie: Rechne stets mit den schlechtesten Absichten und den besten Fähigkeiten deines Feindes. Jetzt wird wieder so gedacht. Was will Putin? Wäre es ihm nur um die Krim gegangen, dann könnte er sich jetzt zurückziehen. Denn die Krim wird dem Kreml-Herren niemand mehr streitig machen. Warum der unerklärte Krieg in der Ostukraine? Da ist kein langes Kopfkratzen nötig: Putin will den Westen zerstören - nach dem Motto: Rechne mit den schlechtesten Absichten ... Darauf gibt es nur eine Antwort: stark sein, hart sein. Niemand will den neuen Chamberlain geben und bloß kein neues München! [...] Putin hat lange zugesehen, wie ihm Nato und EU immer näher rückten. Bei der Ukraine war Schluss. Der Westen musste das wissen. Unsere Empörung hat darum etwas Schales. Jeder entscheidet selbst, wodurch er sich bedroht sieht.
