Russia Accuses British Diplomat of Spying

The Russian authorities accused one of British Embassy diplomats, Christopher Bowers, the acting director of UK Trade and Investments, of espionage activities.

A spokeswoman of the British Foreign office officially confirmed this fact. She said: “I can confirm that a member of the British staff is suspected of spying by the Russians”.

According to the Russian side, Bowers was involved in “suspicious” meetings with so-called radical Russian opposition members and human right defenders from the North Caucasus, including Chechnya. A British Embassy representative confirmed that as an Embassy staff member Bowers is in charge of trade and investments but avoided any other comment.
