US Federal Authorities have detained another person connected with the Russian spy ring. Officials say he should be deported shortly. The man is a Russian citizen, in his mid 20′s, who entered the US in October and was living in a western state.
He is not being held on spy charges, apparently because the US did not have sufficient evidence. However, he is being held on immigration violations and has agreed to be sent to Russia.
“He was just in the early stages, and had just set up shop”, said a federal law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Another man arrested in Cypress that was considered the money director of the Russian spy ring went missing after being allowed bale.
