WHAT RUSSIA CALLS A “SPY KIT”
Russians Claim Items Seized From US Diplomat
By Harold Hutchison
Russia has released a list of items that they claim were part of a spy kit seized from an American diplomat who was detained in Moscow, and who is being declared persona non grata. A second American diplomat is also being booted.
Among the items:
A map of Moscow; a pair of wigs; a cellphone; alkaline batteries, a compass, a flashlight, and a pepper gas canister.
Were these items part of a spy kit, or are the Russians now trying to gin up the evidence as they kick American diplomats out?
