The Russians are among those who have been complaining about those awful spies at the NSA —-Da !
Now we learn of a possible Russian spy ring, which was busily recruiting young Americans to “do a few little favors” for “The Motherland”.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is looking into whether the U.S.-based director of a Russian government-run cultural exchange program is a spy who tried to recruit young Americans as intelligence assets, a national intelligence community official said Wednesday.
The magazine Mother Jones, which first reported the probe, said the organization run by Yury Zaytsev has footed the bill for about 130 Americans to visit Russia. The 130 include political aides, nonprofit advocates and business executives. The Russian Center for Science and Culture offers language lessons and cultural programming.
