Hardly surprising considering those found in UK, and USA, this year. "Illegals," because they weren't operating out of Russian embassies or military missions. Instead, they led seemingly normal lives mostly cosying up to politicians. Seems they're being trained up and dispersed, Europe,USA in particular. Nothing new though is it.

Well with the number of russians who have settled in Germany, there could be thousands of russian spies and you'd never tell until they messed up. Every town has a large number and any numer of spies could just blend into the crowd so to speak.

If they were in anyway like the pished-up loons that landed in my little corner of the fatherland, we in the west are safe. Spent most of their time getting shedded on the cheapest vodka availabe then crying in the stairwell of the flats I lived in.

The hun-plod should be able to round them up just by offering all you can drink turps.

Good in some ways, back to the cold war thriller type stuff. Modern day fieldcraft, and a hero's welcome back home when they're kicked out. Talking to russians working in construction , KAF, they 're in favour of the big country and a return to USSR days. "Putin is good, Gorby sold them out". These guys are average age 25.

Russian national aspirations are a threat. They are increasingly pro-active, becoming more savvy with tools of the west, such as their media angles with RT.

Scratching the surface here possibly, Europe's riddled with them, and wasn't Vienna the bridge between east and west for decades? Still, may spawn a whole new genre of books, revelations and cloak and dagger with smartphones.

If we're not doing it to them as well I want a tax rebate.
It's said to be energy policies and new technologies they're after , rather than political and military intelligence, so we must be ;) Course, we may not have the same funds and resources to deal with cold war levels , oh I forgot, it is cold war levels now. Can't call them Ivan these days, Konstantine doesn't have the same ring.

Once upon a time, in the 60s, German Police arrested Sue Ryder on suspicion of spying. Presumably they thought she was spying on behalf of Britain or the Vatican. Since Ryder was pals with Airey Neave and Willi Brandt perhaps this was the start of the Gunter Guillame spy expose'. German thinking. Draw up a social network diagram and arrest everyone on it. If that fails invade a neighbouring country.

Bears don't change their spots either.

I imagine one doesn't trumpet this sort of arrest to the Press immediately in the hope that other fish may swim into the net over the next few days.

Meanwhile Joey has it. When the TV announced that Michael Foot had died my mother, who otherwise went to her grave never telling tales about her few weeks in MI5 in 1940, sat bolt upright in her chair and exclaimed 'I KNOW he was a traitor, I've seen the evidence.' I reckon there's another but he isn't dead yet. I always reckoned his apparently annual trips to Moscow were for orders.

Dead right! There's still a few of them out there as yet undetected.
