Russian Spy in British Parliament
The BBC is reporting that a Russian staff person working in the office of Member of Parliament Mike Hancock (pictured) has been deported after claims purported that she was a spy. MI5, Britain's counter-intelligence agency, arrested катя затуливетер, claiming her "presence" was "not conducive to national security". According to the Sunday Times, this is the first accusation of Russian spying in Parliament since the fall of the Soviet Union. MP Hancock defended his aide, saying she did nothing wrong and would appeal the deportation order. The article can be found here.
