Did the FBI investigate a Russian spy ring for three years and get nothing but a Google search?

So, the FBI arrested a spy from a a so called Russian Spy ring in New York that consisted of three alleged agents, and according to the federal complaint, it doesn't seem like the guy did much more that do some google research for the Russian government.




On March 28, 2014 Igor Sporyshev, according to the Feds, a Russian spy who held himself out as a Trade Representative of Russian Federation, calls banker Evgeny Buryakov and asks Buryakov to research the effects of economic sanctions on “our country.” Buryakov, arrested on Monday morning and currently being held at the federal prison known as the New York Metropolitan Correctional Center, obliged and conducted an “internet search.”

They follow the so called Russian agents for three years and all they can get on these guys is a failure to register as a foreign agent.

Clearly this is a top level threat straight from the Kremlin.

It is their continued attempt to destroy everything that we here in Murica hold dear!

LOL

A google search!

A Russian spy being stupid enough to use an invention of the NSA/CIA!

I call bull####

They didn't even charge them with espionage. They spent so much time on this investigation. The complaint reads like they were following these guys for months, installing bugs in their offices, planting agents to read they browser history, and all they can say about this guy is that he conducted an "internet search" about sanctions???

Sound like a monumental waste of resources to me.

Russian 'spy' in America who boasted 'you either f*** women or recruit them' was the son of top KGB officer - as it emerges another moaned his life was nothing like James Bond's


* - Igor Sporyshev is the son of a high ranking Russian intelligence officer
* - Sporyshev is accused of being part of an 'espionage ring' in America
* - Officially, the 40-year-old was registered as a Russian trade representative
* - FBI recorded Sporyshev allegedly explaining why recruiting women is hard
* - Alleged spy Victor Podobnyy, 27, complained his role was not like Bond's
* - Charged on Monday, but had left the country under diplomatic cover
* - Speculation third 'spy' Evgeny Buryakov planning a Wall Street meltdown
* - Russia claims the U.S. has provided no evidence to back up the charges


The 28 page filing spells out what happened. They were acting as foreign agents -2 of them with diplomatic status, which is a no no, and a third as a private citizen.

Its one of the reason the 2 with diplomatic status fled the US under diplomatic cover, leaving the 3rd to hang all by his lonesome.

what part of this confuses you guys?

its not the first time Russia has been caught spying... Anna Chapman and 9 other Russian spies were arrested in 2010 in the US.


@ the op - using all caps in your title is a bit of an over kill. Secondly since they have diplomatic status we cant touch them. While you may only see a google search I see 2 individuals who were compromised which essentially will end their career in any country with a news paper. IE good luck finding new jobs outside Russia. The goal is to stop them before they cause damage - mission complete.

Any opportunity here for the pro-Russians to claim that "Murica" is the "evil-doer" will be jumped upon with relish.

The fact is, Russia has spies in all relevant countries, just as we have spies in Russia. The naive belief that this is something from the annals of James Bond and nothing more is of course nonsense.

It's entirely expected that there would be Russian spies in the US, and they would be in positions which gain them access to information useful to the Kremlin.

Sounds to me as though the FBI did their jobs and exposed a Russian threat within the US. The information is available and clear to see for anyone who wants to read it, and actually comprehend it through their irrational fog of anti-Western nonsense.

Well, EVERY country has spies in EVERY country.

But the fact that this guy was caught, by using Google, but three years the FBI monitored this guy????

Every day it seems to me the FBI is getting more incompetent. Thousands of American children go missing and the FBI never finds them, but they found Leonard Peltier, on a reservation, and they found Ruby Ridge and they found Eric David Rudolph AFTER regular people reported him.

The CIA is a useless and immoral agency that needs to be disbanded, but the FBI, three years, really?

For the FBI agents who might be monitoring this...get off your duff monitoring me and go find the missing children. Those "right wing nutter groups" should be the least of your worries, get off your duff and start finding missing children. And while you are at it, prevent Americans from being part of the child sex trafficking. Do you think you can do that?

You are getting paid a bunch of money but it takes you three years to catch a guy via Google, really?

No, they caught a guy using the internet.

The real threat is the CIA. The Russians spying? Say it ain't so...of course the Russians are spying, but so is everyone else.
