      Adam Entous and Michael Schwirtz conducted more than 200 interviews in Ukraine, several other European countries and the United States to report this story.

      I have a lot of questions about this story. If the CIA leaked it on purpose, then this feels like misinformation or misdirection to fool somebody. If the CIA didn’t want this out, then how were they unaware that over 200 people had been interviewed about it? If it is all true, then isn’t this reporting putting lives at risk by identifying features that could pinpoint the location of Ukrainian intelligence operatives?

      Something is weird here.

        It definitely seems intentional. Though I wouldn’t really suspect it to be misinformation, especially with such thorough reporting. More like posturing, signalling, or other diplomatic games.

        It’s also likely Russia already knows most or all of this.

        I thought it was basically an open secret the US was helping with intelligence and planning.
