MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev said the Federal Security Service stopped the activity of 41 career foreign intelligence officers in Russia in 2011, and exposed 158 agents of foreign intelligence services, including 26 Russian citizens.
"The results of the FSB's counter-intelligence work in 2011 clearly show that foreign intelligence services' activity is not diminishing," the head of state underlined.
"Recently they have been interested in political information. In this connection, it is necessity to quickly respond to possible attempts of external influence exercised upon the public and political processes in Russia," the president said.
