Russia’s ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov has said Washington’s campaign to lure Russian citizens into becoming spies is doomed to fail, as Russians will not allow a foreign power to stir up confusion at home. Anatoly Antonov’s statement came after the CIA released a new ad urging Russians to share information with the agency. Antonov said the move was part of “the hybrid war” unleashed against Moscow. “The ill-wishers in the West, ever since the defeat of Napoleon, realised the steadfastness of our country against attacks from outside,” he said.
