Work of an American spy at Kremlin became known on September 9 after an American TV-channel CNN reported that the United States evacuated their informer from Moscow. The American side was afraid that the President Donald Trump could accidentally facilitate his disclosure during his visit in Russia.
Later, the media reported the spy was Oleg Smolenkov. Smolenkov’s former colleague said that during his work with the Embassy, he was responsible for supply and dealt with purchase of company-provided vehicles, items for the Embassy store, and ceremonial needs.
