In 2010, Colonel Aleksandr Poteyev blew the cover of a group of Russian sleeper agents operating in the U.S.
Ten Russians spying for Russia in the U.S. were quickly sent home in exchange for four Russians spying for the U.S. — and the UK — in Russia.
One of the four Russian spooks exchanged was Sergei Skripal who was allegedly the victim of a poison attack on March 4 2018 in Salisbury, UK.

PS: The reports of Colonel Poteyev’s death have been greatly exaggerated. The former spymaster recently acquired a recreational fishing license in Florida. Both the New York Times and the BBC have reported fake news about Poteyev at the request of the CIA.

This BBC “documentary” certainly deserves a Fake News Award!
Please, keep in mind that Mark Urban was caught lying, again and again, about the Skripals affair.

The man who blew the cover of a group of Russian agents in the U.S. last year has been found guilty in absentia of treason and desertion by a Moscow court.
Intelligence Colonel Aleksandr Poteyev fled the country before the scandal last June which saw 10 agents, including Anna Chapman, arrested. RT’s Katerina Azarova has been following proceedings.
