Books by Jacques Baud

The general public liked it. But, given his subsequent successful career in military intelligence structures, he did not expose real secrets.

After that, the Swiss issued 9 more books about intelligence, the sources of terrorism and the fight against it, criticism of the media involved in creating a fake news space. The main resonance is caused by essays, articles and interviews by Jacques Baud. They are characterized by anti-globalization sentiments.

Jacques Baud’s main theses, which characterize his creative activity, are:

  • world politics is determined by a geopolitical conspiracy;
  • the US is doing its best to destroy the friendly relations between Russia and Germany;
  • Putin and Bashar al-Assad have been unfairly vilified by the Western media.

Jacques Baud about the war in Ukraine

In February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine and started a bloody war. Jacques Baud’s rhetoric completely repeats the political rationale for the war from Vladimir Putin. He justifies the Russian President’s actions in the same way as he did during the war in Syria.

He denies Russian military killings of civilians in Bucha. Also, in his opinion, it is necessary to fight against Nazism in Ukraine. A month after the start of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, terrible facts about war crimes by the Russian military began to be revealed. In this regard, the statements of Jacques Baud look very surprising.

There is an assumption, expressed by some people on the Internet, that he was recruited by the Russian intelligence agency during his work in Swiss Strategic Intelligence Service (linked to the countries of the former socialist camp).
