MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow angrily rejected U.S. accusations Tuesday that Washington had cracked an undercover Russian spy ring, and said the Cold War-style cloak and dagger saga seemed timed to wreck a recent thaw in relations.


Linky Goodness

This will quickly become a hysterical game of tit for tat. How long before Maxwell Smart is sent to Siberia


Interesting take, however, by claiming that the timing of the arrests was meant to undermine the POTUS and his new found crush on Mother Russia.

Anywho, did not see this posted anywhere, fogive me if it was.

I don't see what the big deal is in the first place.

What are we so worried about hiding, and don't we have our own spies practically everywhere?

More stupid instigation/provocation from our government.

Not that hitler was a good guy by any stretch, but listen to his take on the US's provocation techniques before the time of computers...


And it's not like we've backed off since then.

EXACTLY!

Do you ACTUALLY think that there are NO US spies in Russia right now?

This stuff goes on ALL the time!

This won't cause any "big deal" and the relattions between the US and Russia will go on like usual.

Did the Cold War ever really end?

Hitler was a bastard lol, but I find the man very interesting.

I'm not fluent in Deutsch by any means but I love the language. Would be nice to head there someday to be around the native speakers.

To touch on your question though. Everyone has spies everywhere. The name of the game is to not get caught. It's one thing that we know every country has spies, but until they're caught they technically don't exist.

Id read that the information t hey were sharing wasnt classified and could be found on the internet... so what exactly is their crime?? Not very adept spies if they are just cruising the net and sending junk to the motherland. More BS IMO.

I dont believe the cold war ever ended and Ive said for years that NK, Iran, Iraq, elsewhere is nothing compared to the credible and actual threat we are ignoring from Russia and China. They are already both fighting us by proxy through NK and Iran... so whats next?




Edited 'cause apparently I cant spell today!

I'm not sure what you're stabbing at neo96.

US spies have been caught before, and the absence of any Russian-based arrests is not evidence of the absence of espionage agents based there working for the United States.

Are you attacking Putin? I think he made quite an intelligent statement. I'm sure he--like some of us here are aware--that these arrests come at a very convenient time, considering the US/Israeli build up just beyond Iran.

I think Putin is likely hinting...

Just to reiterate what I said in my above post, ...

Russia and US Said to Be Planning Spy Exchange

A man jailed in Russia for spying for the CIA said he and unspecified others would be exchanged, his family said.

Igor Sutyagin was quoted as saying he expected to be put on flights to Vienna, then London, on Thursday.

Neither the Russian nor the US authorities have commented on reports of the swap.
******SKIP******
Also on Wednesday, a court hearing in Virginia for three of the suspected Russian spies was postponed and orders were issued to transport them "promptly to the Southern District of New York for further proceedings".

No reason has yet been given for the transfer to New York, where the other seven suspects are in custody.
******SKIP******
On Wednesday, the New York Times quoted sources close to the case as saying the federal government was seeking a rapid resolution.

'No choice'

Igor Sutyagin, a nuclear weapons specialist, is serving a 15-year jail sentence for passing information to a UK firm allegedly used as a front by the CIA.

According to his brother, Dmitry, he said he had been told by Russian officials that he would be released and sent to the UK in exchange for an unknown number of spies.
******SKIP******
After Monday's meeting, the prisoner was reportedly moved to Moscow's Lefortovo prison.

Anna Stavitskaya, a lawyer acting for Sutyagin, told Reuters that her client had agreed to be swapped "as he had no other choice left".

Like I said in my other post, this sort of thing goes on all the time and won't cause any "damage" to US - Russian relations.

Business as usual.
