MI 5 is Lost in Translation
MI 5 page in Russian

The British Security Service MI 5 has translated its site into Russian and Mandarin (Chinese dialect) to push Russians and Chinese to share information about the activity of Russian and Chinese Intelligence Service in the UK more willingly.
      MI 5 had to use this measure as the activity of foreign Intelligent Services distracts the UK office from the fight against international terrorism. It was also a way to hint Moscow and Beijing at the fact that their agents are in the focus of the MI 5 attention.
      Still the site has the only inconvenience, the e-mail service on the site doesnt support Cyrillic (Russian alphabet) and Chinese hieroglyphs. So to inform MI 5 about spies one has to use English.
      The site is now also available in French, but the French version is not regarded as a means of controlling French spies. Mi 5 is just providing information about itself in one of the most-spoken languages in the world.
      Up to now MI 5 has published information in English, Welsh, Arabic and Urdu.
