In the fifth month of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the aggressor country has lost half of its spies in Europe.

This was stated by the head of the British foreign intelligence service MI6 Richard Moore, according to  CNN .

Moore believes that Russia has “half” its ability to spy in Europe after the expulsion of more than 400 Russian intelligence officers from European cities.

Moore added that several deep-cover Russian spies masquerading as civilians have also been exposed and arrested in recent months.

War in Ukraine:

On July 20, 2022, United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said that the war had reached a  critical moment,  but Russia had miscalculated that it would last longer than Ukraine on the battlefield.

On July 21, 2022, the head of British intelligence MI6, Richard Moore, said that the Russian occupiers are likely to take a break in the next few weeks. For the Ukrainians, this could be a chance to deliver devastating blows.
