Two spies

of the Russian Federation were detained in Slovenia

, who were gathering information for Moscow under the guise of citizens of Argentina.

This is reported by

The Guardian


The publication, citing its own sources, reports that the spies were the married couple Mayer and Ludwig Gisch, who allegedly arrived in the country from Argentina.

They settled in Ljubljana in 2017 and had children.

Slovenian law enforcement officers received information that the couple was engaged in espionage and collecting information for the GRU.

One of the spies had Argentine citizenship.

Both worked under the "sleeper agents" program.

According to the publication, the married couple are representatives of the so-called "illegals of the GRU".

Russian agents often have Latin American citizenship, which helps to mask their accent.

After the arrest, the couple almost immediately determined that they were officers of the SZR (Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation).

During the search, a large amount of cash was found in their possession.

The publication reports that the money had to be transferred for several hours, because there was a lot of it.

Exposed agents face 8 years in prison.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, Annalena Berbock,

wants to expel from the country more than 30 Russian diplomats who were accredited by Berlin


In addition, we previously informed that

the National Intelligence Service of Greece exposed a Russian spy

who, under the guise of the owner of a knitwear store, tried to gain access to the data of deceased people.
