Ten people have been arrested for allegedly serving as secret agents of the Russian government in the United States, the Justice Department said Monday.
The complaint alleges that some of those charged had a long-term goal to become "sufficiently Americanized" in order to gather intelligence in the U.S. and to "recruit sources who are in, or are able to infiltrate, United States policy-making circles." The complaint says that the "agents" were trained in "foreign languages; agent-to-agent communications, including the use of brush-passes; short-wave radio operation and invisible writing; the use of codes and ciphers, including the use of encrypted Morse code messages; the creation and use of a cover profession; counter-surveillance measures" and more.

the court filings provide a remarkable blow-by-blow of the FBI's extensive probe of the Russian agents, known as "illegals," whose goal, investigators allege, was to "become sufficiently 'Americanized' such that they can gather information about the United States for Russia" and recruit sources from "United States policy-making circles." As seen on the following pages, the Russian agents employed spycraft both prosaic and high tech.
