On 26 September 2015, in a spy exchange, Eston Kohver was exchanged for convicted Russian spy Aleksei DRESSEN. The swap occurred on a bridge over the Piusa River, that separates the Russian Pskov region and the Estonian Polva county. Eston Kohver, an Estonian security officer, had been abducted by the FSB on Estonian territory in September 2014 and then accused of spying against Russia. Aleksei DRESSEN had been convicted in 2012 along with his wife, Victoria, of providing classified Estonian information to Russia between 1993 and 2012.

1944: Erich GIMPEL and William COLEPAUGH, both German agents, leave aboard a German submarine for the United States. Once covertly entering the U.S., they were to send back intelligence reports. The spies ended up spending money in New York City, and COLEPAUGH gave himself up to the FBI. GIMPEL was arrested later.

"Alexander Fishenko illegally acted as an agent of the Russian government in the United States and evaded export laws by sending microelectronics and other technology with military applications to Russia. By purposefully circumventing U.S. law, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the Arms Export Control Act, the defendant jeopardized our national security.  I would like to thank the many members of law enforcement whose tireless efforts led to this guilty plea.” - Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, 09 September 2015.
