Joel Brenner, the head of the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, told the AP that he is concerned about Russia’s dramatically increased espionage activity:

“The Russians are back at Cold War levels in their efforts against the United States,” he said at an event held by the American Bar Association. “They are sending over an increasing and troubling number of intelligence agents.”
