This post is meant to help in finding information on Russia Plagiarism Files, ie the hypothesis that the Russian government keeps track of plagiarism, or its appearance or post publication efforts to claim credit or deny credit or recognition to rivals or victims.
If you come to a tag page like Klaus Fuchs you will find a stack of articles with the tag Klaus Fuchs with the latest articles first. You can think of it as a column of articles with the latest article on the top of the column.
The latest article may be tagged Klaus Fuchs because it has some application related to Klaus Fuchs. However, the latest article is not the one to read if you are starting at the beginning. It will simply confuse you and seem hopeless.
One thing you can do is go to the bottom of the column which is the oldest article.
The top article currently in the Klaus Fuchs tag column is
This article is mostly about Thomas C. Reed citing the tag column Klaus Fuchs. It is December 12, 2008.
Note the current link to the Reed article is now
If we go to the bottom of the Klaus Fuchs tag column, we get
This article is from 2006. The 2006 article is more basic and from the beginning. So you would do better to read that unless you can’t think for yourself, in which case you just want to see that Thomas C. Reed linked to these webpages. Reed was a former Sec of the Air Force and worked with Teller before that to develop nuclear weapons at Lawrence Livermore.
Another place to start on Russia Plagiarism Files is
This has links to some other articles.
If you come to a random article webpage from a Google link or a link in an email provided by a friend or unfriend, then you may find it confusing or not of much use. You have to make some effort to find the right articles to read given your background knowledge.
This navigation page will be added to from time to time. So you may want to come back to it.
As a reminder, See Something Say Something.
If you know something that could be of use in exposing government or academic corruption or in counter-terrorism, speak up. Chechens or others may have specific resentments against academic, banking, government or international targets. If you work for one of those or are a student and see something suspicious, speak up. Report it to someone. Post a comment on these webpages if you can’t do anything else.
This is currently posted on January 31, 2014. We are in a fever over Sochi Terrorism. But the strike may be somewhere else such as Harvard and MIT economics departments or business schools. If you work or study there, and no one seems to take notice of anything, speak up. These departments should issue warnings in advance of the Sochi games, really even before this. They are a special target during Sochi. So are the IMF and World Bank in Washington DC or affiliated locations in Europe.
Russia may also be spreading stories inside Chechen or Muslim groups blaming Andrei Shleifer, Larry Summers, Stanley Fischer or others. Putin wants to deflect blame for the Chechen genocide and Moscow Apartment Bombings onto the US, British and likely Israel.
After the Boston Bombings in 2013, Putin blamed the CIA for manipulating Anatoly Chubais, this fingered Harvard prof Andrei Shleifer. If something happens in the US or Europe, Putin will blame the CIA. If someone is killed, Putin will say they were the next Snowden and were going to expose the CIA. Russia will have a twisted story to explain whatever happens. Thus you can’t exclude any target or any scenario because it is too absurd or stupid.
Stanley Fischer’s appointment as Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve before the Sochi Olympics was waiving a red flag in the face of Chechens and Muslims. They blame the IMF loans under Fischer and Summers for funding the Chechen genocide in 1999 during the Second Chechen War. The Kavkaz Center in Sweden pushes this line. Thus the Federal Reserve is a target and groups or individuals linked to it. If you know something about any of this, you should pass that on. This includes Russia’s use of academic misconduct kompromat, pre or post publication.
The universities, the IMF and World Bank, Federal Reserve, banks and other related financial institutions have not passed on what they know to the FBI or JTTF or even within their own organization to their own security people. They have to take blame for not doing so. If you have information or academic misconduct, Russia’s use of it, an interest in this subject by Chechens and Muslims, Chinese, or Russians, then pass it on.
Countries like Pakistan and India and likely Iran try to piggy back on this information and use it. So report people from these countries if you know they are involved in such matters. You can link to this page in a written report or tip as providing background on these subjects.
Don’t be a victim. These people manipulate not just terrorism but academic misconduct and recognition to advance their national or group interests. You don’t have to protect them because they are colleagues or leader figures, even if they have important titles or recognition.
