Russians, by whatever name, have always taken a very dim view on state treason.
That said, this seems a little out of character for the Russians. Whatever else they may be, they play the espionage game better than anyone outside of the Brits, and give them a run for their money. This lacks anything like subtlety...
Other intelligence services may "know" it's the Russians who done done it, but couldn't prove it to save their lives. This is far too clear a path. In my own little ol' subtle opinion.
For those of us who thought the Cold War was dead and gone? Oops.
