The alleged CIA spy caught red-handed by Russia was likely interested in obtaining information about the Boston bombing suspects, whose origins were in the Russian Caucasus, it has been reported.
The Kommersant daily said it was probable that the suspected agent Ryan Fogle – officially a diplomat – was looking for information on the Tsarnaev brothers, who are alleged to have carried out the Marathon bombings.
It linked Mr Fogle’s capture, which threatens to further stress ties between Washington and Moscow, to a trip that a US delegation made to Dagestan in April in coordination with the Russian authorities to investigate the blasts.
