The aggressor country "half" lost the ability to spy in Europe - intelligence

07:27 22 July Kyiv, Ukraine

As a result of the expulsion of more than 400 Russian intelligence officers from European cities, the head of the British Foreign Intelligence Service, Richard Moore, believes that Russian espionage in Europe has halved.

 
This was announced by Moore, quoted by CNN.

According to Moore, after Russia invaded Ukraine in February, European countries expelled "400 Russian intelligence officers operating under diplomatic cover."
 
"And we think that probably halved their ability to spy for Russia in Europe," Moore said.
 
Several deep-cover Russian spies masquerading as ordinary civilians have also been exposed and arrested in recent months, he added.
