‘Deep-Cover’ Russian Spy Ring Worked Since 1990s

Federal agents arrested 10 alleged members of a “long-term, deep-cover” Russian spy ring whose ultimate goal was to infiltrate U.S. policy-making circles, according to the Justice Department.

The arrests in the New York area, Boston and Arlington, Virginia, broke up a group that began operating in the 1990s, according to two criminal complaints unsealed yesterday in Manhattan federal court.
