Events of the last 2 days have made further work of Ramzaj
group in its current format impossible.
With the embassy personnel and journalists having left Iraq
and most of Iraqi information services evacuated from Baghdad,
analysis of the situation in Baghdad and Iraq as a whole
The quickly changing course of street fights leaves any
informational updates far behind. Direct TV broadcasts are far
more evident than any analytics.
At the same time, we do not have the right to reveal
classified, “top secret” information.
Apart from that, our actions meet increasing opposition from
the official quarts and in fact are turning into confrontation
the outcome of which is not difficult to forecast.
Therefore we have to discontinue our work and thank everybody
for taking part in the project.
In conclusion we would like to say:
All the “updates” came out from a compact group formed a
few years ago in the framework of a special service. The group
used to work for the government for a long time but all its
members have left the service and now act as an independent
analytical group that has kept some capabilities. This gives
an answer to the most common question – about the sources of
We participated in the ongoing events on a “non-profit”
basis and had no object other than to stand the US-British
informational blockade of the war in Iraq.
Our updates were not genuine materials from any of Russian or
other special services, but rather an “intellectual

special information structures. The very form “operativnaya
informatsiya” never claimed to be “military information
updates” but served as additional data for self-dependent
The main goal of the project was to present intelligible
military analytics on the war in Iraq, which is currently
missing, to the informational space. We had both success and
obvious fails along the way.
We are grateful to the iraqwar.ru and forum.vif2.ru
administration that took the risk and burden of working with
us and we understand how many problems they have to endure
because of that.
With all responsibility we state that no messages, letters,
appeals and other materials, apart from the daily
“updates” on iraqwar.ru and forum.vif2.ru were made by
Ramzaj group and any other statement in our name is nothing
The author with the nickname “Kondor” is the only
authorized source of information about the group and its
“official contact person”. In cases of uncertainty or
“nickname cloning” authentication is possible using his
personal photo that supplements one of images published on
iraqwar.ru and comes as its logical continuation.
With unfailing respect to all of you,
