Federal agents on Monday arrested an alleged Russian spy in New York accused of trying to collect economic intelligence and recruit US sources while working for a Russian bank, officials said. US prosecutors named the alleged covert intelligence agent as Evgeny Buryakov, 39. Prosecutors said he was assisted in his illegal spying activities by Russian spies Igor Sporyshev, 40, and Victor Podobnyy, 27, who had been attached to the Russian missions in New York. Although both had been protected by diplomatic immunity they no longer live in the United States, and have been charged in absentia despite not being arrested, officials said.
