Details

 

It's been two years since Americans were stunned to learn of the arrest of ten Russian "deep-cover” spies who had lived among us for decades. What's become of these one-time neighbors and Facebook friends and what have we learned about the success or failure of their mission to meet influential Americans and exploit them for their knowledge of government policy? "Illegals,” like these spies, have been a Moscow specialty for years, but traditionally are used sparingly—for only the most sensitive of operations. What did we learn from these arrests? Seldom has the US government been able to find and arrest "illegals,” so did this rare occurrence offer us important new information on Russian intelligence collection practices?

H. Keith Melton, renowned intelligence historian, technical advisor to American intelligence agencies, author of Spycraft: The Secret History of the CIA's Spytechs, from Communism to Al-Qaeda, and International Spy Museum board member, will revisit the murky world of these "illegals:” who they were, how they operated, the threat they posed, and where they are now. With access to exclusive materials and images, he'll bring us up-to-date on the case. Retired KGB Major General Oleg Kalugin (CI Centre instructor) will also provide commentary based on his years of running agents in the United States.
