NEW YORK, February 11. /TASS/. Russian citizen Yevgeny Buryakov has pleaded no guilty on charges of espionage in the court of New York’s southern district on Wednesday. In accordance with the established procedure Buryakov faced the court to hear the charges brought against him earlier to be able to plead guilty or not guilty.
In part, Buryakov is accused of working in the United States in the capacity of a Russian foreign intelligence agent under cover.
According to the court document Buryakov failed to notify the US Department of Justice as required by law that he was an agent of the Russian Federation.
Buryakov, a deputy representative of Russia’s Vneshekonombank in New York, was detained by FBI agents in Bronx on January 26, 2015. Later in the day he faced a court in Manhattan. The southern district attorney’s office formally charged him with spying last Monday.
The US authorities have brought formal charges against two other Russians in absentia. The two men, Igor Sporyshev and Viktor Podobny, are currently outside the United States.
