A spy in the office of the French Defense Minister.. He worked for Russia in 2017


The former director of the French General Directorate of External Security, Bernard Bajolet, revealed that a spy for Russia worked in the French Ministry of Defense in 2017, speaking during a program on the network “France 5” on Sunday evening, Sky News reported.

Bajolet was asked about information that a spy for Russia was working in the office of then-Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who is currently holding the foreign ministry, and confirmed in the documentary about Russian President Vladimir Putin: “Indeed, when I was director general of external security, I reported the matter” to the government. .

He continued, “In the past years, we used to say, all this is over. After the Cold War, we no longer have time to waste on spies who no longer exist. The priority is the issues of terrorism. Others, the Americans, were never as big as they are today, let’s see things for what they are.”

At the time, the investigative news website Mediapart revealed this information, stating that a spy for the Russian military intelligence had recruited an informant inside the office of Jean-Yves Le Drian when he was defense minister under former President Francois Hollande.
