Colonel-General Sergei Beseda, Russia's head of the Fifth Service of the FSB (which is responsible for intelligence operations in former Soviet republics), has been arrested.
The scuttlebutt is that Russian Fifth Service agents were pocketing for themselves all the money that was being distributed to supposed Pro-Russian allies in Ukraine.
Putin thought Ukraine was eager to throw off the yoke of their democratically elected oppressors and were yearning to be free under Putin's dictatorship, with the assistance of hordes of supporters.
Hordes of both expensive and imaginary Ukrainian agents.
If true, simultaneously mind-blowing and entirely unsurprising.
