Remember how Hillary supported Skolkovo, the technological espionage project of Russia? From the Skolkovo project website:
“The innovative development of nuclear technologies is an essential condition for consolidating (and in some areas, achieving) a position of global technological leadership and maintaining Russia’s defense capability.”
That brings to mind the Uranium One, but this is another topic. Intel and Facebook heavily contributed to Skolkovo when Robert Mueller was their attorney (see his disclosure ). Intel and Microsoft were Skolkovo Foundation Partners. Google‘s Chairman Eric Schmidt became Skolkovo board member.
Google and Facebook aided the Russian Federation with development of facial recognition and computer vision systems having military and intelligence applications, and might have even tested these systems on the Americans. The results are quite impressive. See VisionLabs. Twitter was there, too.
Kribrum is a Skolkovo “social media monitoring” project. Twitter has “simplifie[d] monitoring process” for Kribrum, allowing even easier monitoring of the US citizens on Twitter. “Active operations” are not mentioned, but they might have benefited even more. On its website, Kribrum claims “monitoring the Russian internet references to the object (company, person, product of the company) from Russian-speaking Internet resources: social networks, online media, blogs, thematic and regional forums and other resources. After that, the system automatically determines the emotional coloring of the statements …” That suggests that monitoring of the US internet is classified. Hillary made that possible.
“Skolkovo’s link to the Russian military-intelligence apparatus is not in dispute. In 2011, when Russian spy Anna Chapman was deported from the U.S. on espionage charges, she returned to Russia and quickly emerged at—of all places—Skolkovo.”
“Hillary pushed Skolkovo, “a high-tech corridor in Russia modeled after our own Silicon Valley,” as she explained in Moscow in October 2009. Her State Department colleagues encouraged 22 top American venture capitalists to tour Skolkovo in May 2010. State [Department] convinced Cisco, Google, and Intel, among others, to open shop in Skolkovo. By 2012, 28 “Key Partners” from the U.S., Europe, and Russia supported this project.”
17 of of the 28 were also donors to the Clinton Foundation.
“But the U.S. Army Foreign Military Studies Program warned in 2013: “Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage.””
“Hillary captured its essence in March 2010 when she told former Soviet propagandist Vladimir Pozner on First Channel TV: “Our goal is to help strengthen Russia.””
