Media reports on the activities of an Austrian spy in favor of Russia

The Washington Post reported that Augusto Ott, accused of spying for Russia, has reorganized the security service at the Austrian Foreign Ministry.

“Ott and other Austrian intelligence officials were developing a plan to reorganize the security service into a new department within the Foreign Ministry,” the newspaper reported, citing documents and testimony from European officials.

She noted that he denied the accusations, saying that he was the victim of a conspiracy.

He stressed that he was only exposing intelligence breaches and exposing illegal requests from intelligence agencies of other countries.

Notably, Ott has been under investigation since 2017, when documents from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were found on his phone, including the formula for the Novichok compound, a gas that Britain claims was “used to attack security forces and poisoning by treacherous Russian intelligence in Salisbury, UK.”
