The FBI agent who spied for Moscow has died

The seventy-nine-year-old man was found dead on Monday morning in his prison cell in the state of Colorado, the penitentiary said. Attempts to revive Hanssen were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The former FBI agent was sentenced to life in prison in 2002 by a criminal court in Alexandria, Virginia, on charges of spying for Russia.

The Hanssen affair was one of the most serious espionage scandals in the United States. The man worked for the FBI for 25 years and during this time – with interruptions – spied for Moscow for 15 years. Among other things, he passed on classified information about satellites, early warning systems, US weapons development and defense strategies, as well as communications and intelligence facilities.
