  • Amazing. Russia is so backward -- no wonder its best people leave.

  • Haha. Well you are wrong. Americans are just naturally good at creating propaganda. If one was caught spying then he should be detained. There is a saying- "Cold war is over, but people stook in those times still remain"

  • Re Anonymous @ 2:43pm;

    Irrespective of whether or not the claim is American propaganda, as you suggest, the article doesn't say that the Russians detained this chap because he was spying ON them, rather that he was detained for refusing to spy FOR them.

  • He's not the first former employee of a US/UK government who has moved to the Moscow outpost of a global firm and been approached like that. I know of another who left the country the day after she/he was the subject of "recruitment efforts" and then hasn't returned for fear of being detained and refused entry.

  • Never let it be said that one is focusing on the trees instead of the wood, but surely someone needs a grammar lesson at Bakers' PR department? “Neither our colleague nor we have been informed of the reason for this action...". Appalling.
