Sutyagin to Meet Relative

A relative of Igor Sutyagin, the defense analyst convicted of espionage in 2004 and deported to Britain during a spy swap between Russia and the United States in July, will visit him in London, Interfax reported.

News reports said Russian authorities had stalled on applications for foreign-travel passports filed by Sutyagin’s relatives.

But the researcher’s brother, Dmitry, said Friday that one of the relatives had obtained a passport and was planning a trip “in the nearest future.” He did not identify the relative.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
