ABSTRACT
The article reports that British spy equipment was found in a park in Moscow, Russia. The FSB, successor to the KGB Russian secret service, and the government leaked the information as part of an effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin to discredit non-governmental organizations and foreign organizations in Russia. Beyond the spying controversy, the FSB has used KGB-like techniques in former Soviet countries and in Russia to influence elections and weaken the opposition.
