Washington, July 9 (ANI): Russian spies deported from the United States have been banned from selling their stories, at least in the United States. S officials said the 10 agents expelled from the United States on Thursday in exchange for four Russian prisoners had signed plea agreements forfeiting their US properties and bank accounts, as well as the right to sell their stories in any form.
Officials were cautious with information about the exchange that defused a potential diplomatic clash just as ties between the two countries were warming.
"We just can't get into operational details," The Telegraph quoted a senior official, as saying.
Washington and Moscow have moved quickly after the June 27 arrest of the 10 suspects in discussing the terms of the swap arrangement. (ANI)
