Russian Federation requests Interpol info on suspected spy location

  • U.S. President Donald Trump has been accused of revealing U.S. secrets during meetings with foreign officials

"Two years later, the U.S. media churns out information that he is in the U.S.", Ms. Zakharova said, Russian state media reported. The individual had been providing information to USA intelligence for decades, had access to Putin and had sent pictures of high-level documents on the Russian leader's desk, CNN said.

Russia has asked the United States via Interpol to confirm the whereabouts of a former Kremlin official who Russian media have said may have been a USA spy exfiltrated in 2017, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.

U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election campaign in order to tilt the vote in U.S. President Donald Trump's favor.

"In this regard, Interpol was asked about the disappearance of a foreign citizen and his rumored presence in the United States", Ms. Zakharova said, according to the outlets.

After U.S. media first reported on September 9 that a Central Intelligence Agency informant had allegedly been moved out of Russia in 2017, Smolenkov's name surfaced in the Russian newspaper Kommersant as the possible informant.

Russian national Oleg Smolenkov, who is suspected of spying within the country's government for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), "disappeared" with his family in 2017 into the "territory of a foreign state", and a criminal case was opened following the incident, she said. He was reported to have disappeared with his wife, Antonina, and three children while on holiday in Montenegro in June 2017.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday: "I can only state that this employee existed, that he was sacked, and that we don't know whether he was a spy or not".

"The whole CNN story is classic propaganda".

CNN reported that the source had been providing information for decades, had access to Putin and had sent pictures of high-level documents on the Russian leader's desk.

The Kremlin has said that Smolenkov was not a high-level official when he later transferred to the presidential administration after returning to Russian Federation and did not have access to President Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin this week said the man had worked there but did not have direct contact with Putin.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo angrily denounced reports detailing the secret exfiltration, saying such reports could put lives at risk.
