Never Ask the Wolves to Help You Against the Dogs

On Aug. 16 we read in Pravda.info the comments of Vladimir Filin, a self-described Marxist and former GRU officer living in Kiev, well-connected to KGB structures, supposedly aligned against Putin, marching in the "revolutionary movement of all enslaved peoples" (
especially those in Finland, according to his Live Journal blog
Filin's business interests reach from the poppy fields of Tajikistan to the lumber mills and chicken farms of Brazil.
He has been accused of narcotics and arms trafficking, with supposed connections to subversive political activities (like coup-plotting).
He is the president and chairman of a private intelligence company called "Far West, LLC."
As it happens, he has a reputation to maintain in the world of political-military gossip
Perhaps you've heard or read about the Maltese-flagged freighter named Arctic Sea, which recently disappeared in the Atlantic Ocean and was subsequently recovered after various contradictory reports.
According to Filin, the Arctic Sea had been loaded with four X-55 cruise missiles while docked at the Baltic Sea port of Kaliningrad.
The missiles were without warheads, as the warheads were shipped separately on another vessel .
Filin alleges that the warheads were customized for carrying Soviet-produced biochemical material previously "shipped to Iran from Russia by air."
