Russia’s intelligence services

Author Mark Galeotti said:
“The Russians are engaging in massive and voracious intelligence-gathering campaigns, fuelled by still-substantial budgets and a Kremlin culture that sees deceit and secret agendas even where none exist.” 
“The wars between the agencies have raged on-and-off since 2004. The blurring of boundaries between them encourages regular turf wars – not just over the usual bureaucratic prizes of responsibilities, funding, and access to the leadership but also business opportunities for officers, and sometimes outright survival.” 
 “Putin has the intelligence and security community he wanted: a powerful, feral, multi-headed, and obedient hydra. But it is Putin himself, and his dreams of Russia as a great power, that is the real victim of this badly managed beast. The agencies reinforce his assumptions and play to his fantasies rather than informing and challenging his worldview.”
интересная картинка:
по строкам видно, что до КГБ никто не дотягивает (а самая мнофоукнкциональная — СВР, что довольно странно), а по столбцам интереснее — последние две функции многократно продублированы — в таварисчах согласья нет, или у семи нянек дитя без глазу (глузду?)
