'Spy' Out on Bail

Yekaterina Zatuliveter, a Russian aide to a British lawmaker detained on suspicion of spying for Russia, was released on bail, Interfax reported Tuesday.

Zatuliveter, 25, has been barred from contacting her employer, Mike Hancock, for whom she has worked since 2007, or visiting the Parliament until a ruling is passed in her case, which is scheduled for review in February, a Russian Foreign Ministry source told Interfax.

British counterintelligence service MI5 said shortly after her detention last month that Zatuliveter was a possible threat to national security but did not elaborate.
