The final recipients of this information were the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States," the source explained. In addition, the interlocutor noted that the secret data that the possible spy got, concerned the navy, but the source declined to disclose details.
In the conversation it was also mentioned that in the last few months the FSB officers recorded an unexpectedly increased activity on the part of the US special services. At the same time, active data collection about Russia is conducted not only within its borders, but also in the countries of the former USSR and Europe.
