MOSCOW, May 14 (Itar-Tass) - A career officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was detained in the attempt to recruit an officer of the Russian security services in Moscow, the Public Relations Centre of the Federal Security Service (FSB) told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Overnight to May 14 the FSB counterintelligence service detained a career officer of the Central Intelligence Agency Ryan Christopher Fogle, who worked under the cover of the post of the third secretary of the political department of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, in the attempt to recruit an officer of one of Russian security services,” the FSB Public Relations Centre reported.
“The special equipment, written instructions for a recruited Russian citizen, a big sum of money and masking devices were found on him. The detainee was brought in the reception office of the Federal Security Service and after necessary procedures he was handed over to the official representatives of the U.S. Embassy,” the FSB Public Relations Centre added.
The Federal Security Service added that “recently the U.S. intelligence has taken numerous attempts to recruit officers of the Russian law enforcement agencies and special agencies that were exposed and were made under the control of the FSB counterintelligence service.”
