According to materials of an investigation into the case of ex-head of the Polish Military Counterintelligence Janusz Nosek, who is suspected of having links with Moscow, the agency entered into an unwritten agreement with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) after the Smolensk air disaster, the Gazeta Polska Codziennie newspaper reported.

According to the newspaper, an investigation is also conducted against Piotrowi Pytlowi, who headed the Polish Military Counterintelligence after Gen. Nosek, as well as against Krzysztofa Duszy, an ex-director of the Polish secret service office.

 

As the article reads, after the air disaster near Smolensk, the Military Counterintelligence Service drew its attention to Marek Pasionek, who controlled an investigation of the Warsaw district’s military prosecutor’s office into the Smolensk case. Counterintelligence agents conducted prompt actions against him, and then filed a case in connection with the fact that he was in contact with Americans, hoping to get help to clarify circumstances of the accident. Gradually, activity on the case came to nought, and it was closed.

 

The current investigation drew attention to visits of representatives of the FSB to the office of the Polish counterintelligence, as well as to business trips of Nosek and Pytlowi to Moscow. According to the article, Russians had an opportunity to move freely within the territory of the building, and their car was on an official parking lot, and it even was not checked for reconnaissance equipment, while Polish counterintelligence agents in Russia were under continuous control of the FSB.

 

According to the newspaper, the agreement between the FSB and the Polish Military Counterintelligence was signed without informing then Prime Minister Donald Tusk, and it gave the FSB an opportunity to “infiltrate the Polish counter-intelligence.”

 

As the article notes, the agreement implied “cooperation in countering threats of each of the parties of the agreement.” And actions of the US and NATO were considered as such threats.
