Tentative plot to whisk fugitive from London embassy on Christmas Eve was considered too risky

Russian diplomats held secret talks in London last year with people close to Julian Assange to assess whether they could help him flee the UK, the Guardian has learned.

A tentative plan was devised that would have seen the WikiLeaks founder smuggled out of Ecuador’s London embassy in a diplomatic vehicle and transported to another country.

Chelsea Manning will no longer appear in Australia this month but will instead conduct her scheduled speaking tour via satellite from New Zealand.

Manning’s tour had been thrown into doubt by the requirement of a special direction visa to visit New Zealand and the Australian government’s decision to issue the tour organiser, Think Inc, a notice of intention to deny her a visa.

Australian human rights groups have rallied to support Chelsea Manning, deriding the proposal to ban the US whistleblower from entering Australia as a “political stunt” to appease the Trump administration.

The Australian Greens leader Richard Di Natale, Labor equality spokeswoman Louise Pratt and numerous human rights groups lobbied the Morrison government on Thursday, arguing free speech means opponents of government policy should not be barred from entry.

Julian Assange received more than 80 visitors in the seven weeks leading up to the release of hacked Democratic party emails by WikiLeaks, including two journalists from the Kremlin-backed broadcaster RT, the documentary film-maker Michael Moore, the philosopher Slavoj Žižek and a German hacker.

Visitor logs seen by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador show a frenetic period for the WikiLeaks founder in the summer of 2016, around the time he declared that he would release emails from Hillary Clinton’s US presidential campaign. Assange has been holed up in Ecuador’s London embassy since 2012.

Assange has had his internet access cut off by the staff of Ecuador’s embassy in London for a second time – the first being a result of WikiLeaks’ intervention in the US election with the leak of emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign, and Assange’s tweets expressing political preference.
