CIA ready to recruit Russians dissatisfied with Putin's war

Nov 23, 2022

The Central Intelligence Agency is open to cooperating with Russians who oppose Putin's war in Ukraine.


This, as reported on Tuesday by The Wall Street Journal, was stated by Deputy Director of the CIA David Marlowe, who is responsible for operations, Ukrinform reports.

"We are looking for Russians around the world who feel the same disgust for this (Putin's war against Ukraine - ed.) as we do. Because we are open for business," - Mulrow said during a public speech.

He noted that the invasion of Ukraine was a "massive failure" for Russian President Putin. And now it opens up opportunities for Western intelligence services to work among disgruntled Russians.

As reported, David Marlow, appointed to the post in June 2021 by CIA Director William Burns, speaks Arabic. He has worked several times as head of CIA offices abroad, particularly in the Middle East.
