Iraq War Info from Russian GRU EndsTransmissions

SCOOP EDITOR'S NOTE: Many Internet readers have till now enjoyed the uncensored reports from the Russian GRU. See.. http://www.iraqwar.ru/?userlang=en and http://www.aeronautics.ru/. The following is their final bulletin.

Scoop notes that this announcement follows the US firing a tank shell at the Ukraine office of Reuters based in the Journalists hotel in Baghdad this morning and the death of two journalists. This was officially an accident, as was the second U.S. bombing raid on Al Jazeera, and it is therefore a matter of pure speculation that the reasons for the discontinuation of this service might relate in any way to military action by U.S. Forces.

Final Report:
Uncensored Info on Iraq War from the Russian GRU:

RAMZAJ DISCONTINUES OPERATION 04/08/03

Events of the last 2 days have made further work of Ramzaj group in its current format impossible.

With the embassy personnel and journalists having left Iraq and most of Iraqi information services evacuated from Baghdad, analysis of the situation in Baghdad and Iraq as a whole becomes ineffective. The quickly changing course of street fights leaves any informational updates far behind. Direct TV broadcasts are far more evident than any analytics. At the same time, we do not have the right to reveal classified, "top secret" information. Apart from that, our actions meet increasing opposition from the official quarts and in fact are turning into confrontation the outcome of which is not difficult to forecast. Therefore we have to discontinue our work and thank everybody for taking part in the project.

In conclusion we would like to say:

All the "updates" came out from a compact group formed a few years ago in the framework of a special service. The group used to work for the government for a long time but all its members have left the service and now act as an independent analytical group that has kept some capabilities. This gives an answer to the most common question - about the sources of our information.

We participated in the ongoing events on a "non-profit" basis and had no object other than to stand the US-British informational blockade of the war in Iraq.

Our updates were not genuine materials from any of Russian or other special services, but rather an "intellectual product" of the group itself, product of its operative, informational and analytical abilities. But compiling the updates we used materials available from our friends from special information structures. The very form "operativnaya informatsiya" never claimed to be "military information updates" but served as additional data for self-dependent analysis.

The main goal of the project was to present intelligible military analytics on the war in Iraq, which is currently missing, to the informational space. We had both success and obvious fails along the way.

We are grateful to the iraqwar.ru and forum.vif2.ru administration that took the risk and burden of working with us and we understand how many problems they have to endure because of that. With all responsibility we state that no messages, letters, appeals and other materials, apart from the daily "updates" on iraqwar.ru and forum.vif2.ru were made by Ramzaj group and any other statement in our name is nothing but mystification. The author with the nickname "Kondor" is the only authorized source of information about the group and its "official contact person". In cases of uncertainty or "nickname cloning" authentication is possible using his personal photo that supplements one of images published on iraqwar.ru and comes as its logical continuation.

With unfailing respect to all of you,

Ramzaj.
