Two more suspects in a purported spy ring have admitted they are Russian citizens living in the U.S. under false identities, prosecutors said Friday, as officials in Cyprus said another defendant in the bust might have fled the island after being set free on bail.
Mikhail Semenko's employer knew he liked to frequent embassy functions and didn't want to work at his small travel agency forever, but he was stunned when the somewhat awkward Russian immigrant was accused of being a spy.
Regarding Mr. Zottoli, authorities detailed several exchanges with other alleged coconspirators, in which he is accused of receiving thousands of dollars, laptops used to communicate with Russian officials and other items.
"Five seconds later, we'd hear Michael say 'oops,'" Shirokov said. "No way, you can't imagine him being a spy. If you met him, you wouldn't believe it."
