DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 12, 2016, 8:41 PM (IDT)

All Russian citizens studying overseas have been ordered to immediately return to their homeland, Russian internet newspaper Znak reported on Tuesday. The report said the order was issued to all civil servants in all levels of the government. The reason for the instruction was not clear, but the newspaper’s commentators suggested two possibilities: Russian preparation for war against the West, or President Vladimir Putin’s desire to display his domination over the country’s oligarchs and force those with children studying in the US and Europe to bring them home.  

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
