The num­ber of Russ­ian intel­li­gence offi­cers embed­ded in the US remains “way too big,” cau­tions FBI Direc­tor Christo­pher Wray. 

At a spy muse­um event, Wray revealed con­stant clash­es with a sig­nif­i­cant Russ­ian foot­print using cut-outs like a Mex­i­can infor­mant. Cit­ing Ukrain­ian aggres­sion, Wray stress­es the same threat plagues America. 

Since the Cold War, agen­cies bat­tle wily Russ­ian spies like a Johns Hop­kins trained offi­cer and plot­ters behind alleged malign social media cam­paigns. Recent indict­ments and a New York Times report on space indus­try infil­tra­tions show threats evolve. 

The NCSC advis­es com­pa­nies mon­i­tor net­works for breach­es while sus­pect investors raise red flags. Inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ists uncov­er dis­turb­ing new expo­sures, con­firm­ing a resur­gent spy problem. 

Yet depor­ta­tions helped shrink num­bers, says Wray, even as flee­ing Rus­sians pack New York amid their coun­try’s pari­ah sta­tus over the Ukraine invasion.
