Illegals, Soviet & Russian sleeper agents

#1
Don't know whether this has been discussed before but bearing in mind
that the Russian intelligence services are as busy as ever inserting
deep cover agents within the United States and UK and seldom a
year goes by without some 'deep cover' spy ring being rooted out
by western intelligence agencies.
For example the Anna Chapman case in the United States back in
2010 being the most recent.

Russian Spies are alive and well & thriving long after the Cold War

Also was their any truth in the rumours that the Soviet 'deep cover'
agents of the Cold War were trained in 'fake towns' made to
look like British or American towns, deep in the Soviet Union.
In order to establish the perfect british or american citizen that
would be capable of blending in with his neighbours.
Of course many of you would have been watching Modern Spies
on BBC2 on Monday and one piece stood out about the Spies in
our midst.

You'd think they'd be able to provide their agents with a decent fake Hawaiian birth certificate.

Yes - they used to send their baby spies to Karachi, Dacca, Khartoum, Warsaw, Lagos & Kingston in order to ensure that they blended in with UK population.......

Not being funny; most Russian spooks or people approached to be spooks that I've met have been far too highly educated and well-spoken in English to have any chance of blending into contemporary UK society.

Yep your quite right, of course it all depends upon which inner-circles
of British society they want to penetrate. Whether its government,
defence, banking, universities, etc.
Of course an encyclopedic knowledge of one of the top premiership
football teams will do for starters, as any self respecting 'deep cover
agent' needs to 'talk footie' in order to ingratiate himself with
the Brits.
For women agents, well I suppose being a dab hand around the
house & garden and getting a reputation for turning out great
hydrangeas. Will lull the neighbours into a false sense of security.
