A senior US counterintelligence official said Thursday that Russia has fully restored its espionage capabilities against the United States after a period of decline following the Cold War.
Joel Brenner, the head of the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, said the US is concerned that Russia is continuing to ramp up its operations.
"The Russians are now back at cold war levels in their efforts against the United States," he said at an event held by the American Bar Association, a lawyers' group. "They are sending over an increasing and troubling number of intelligence agents."
