    What are they spying on?
    Does Russia not have internet or Direct TV?
    Someone said they were spying on our culture. Isn’t our culture the only thing we export?
    I think they were left here after the cold war and nobody told them it was over.
    Who cares?

    Apparently no one, they're not being charged with espionage and both countries have said that this will not affect the recent warming of relations. It is kind of James Bond/spy novel-esque, though, which makes for a good news story.

    It's kind of bizarre.

    Several (married?) couples were sent here, and were expected to totally assimilate into American living, and not be spies themselves, but to recruit other people to be spies for Russia.

    Putin is still running Russia, regardless of who is officially in charge.
    I guess once a KGB big wig, always a KGB big wig.

    Time to dust off the shoe phone, and revive Boris and Natasha !
