A Georgian intelligence service officer was detained in Sochi as reported by Russia's Federal Security Service on April 21.
The Russian Federal Security Service exposed and busted the operation of Mamuka Maysuradze, a Georgian intelligence service officer who was illegally planted in the territory of Russia in order to carry out investigative and other subversive activities, Interfax quotes.
It is established that on orders of his superiors Maysuradze arrived in Sochi in mid 2007 as a Ukrainian citizen and in compliance with the devised legend started a private enterprise. According to RIA Novosti with reference to an unnamed source in the FSB of Russia the Ukrainian citizenship and all necessary documents were provided to Maysuradze "with active assistance of the Georgian special services that using operational resources manufactured them for the intelligence officer's legalization in a short time in violation of the Ukrainian law".
Funded by the Georgian intelligence service in 2008 Maysuradze opened an Internet café in Sochi in order use it as a channel of communication with the foreign special service employees. Curiously enough Maysuradze was also tasked to collect data on preparations for Sochi Winter Olympic Games 2014.
"Later it was fully confirmed in Maysuradze's confessionary statements, - the source in the FSB is quoted by RIA Novosti. - He also told about the persons that helped him to legalize and some Russian citizens that are in touch with the Georgian intelligence service. His evidence confirms the attempts to create an agent network of Georgia's special services to carry out investigative activities in Krasnodarsky Region".
It will be remembered late in 2008 the media reported on the FSB's neutralization of the Georgian special services agent network in the territory of Russia and the arrest of one of the organizers - deputy chief of foreign intelligence special service department of Georgia Zaza Kherkeladze. Other agents were detained with him.
There was Russian citizen Khachirov among them recruited by the Georgian intelligence service in 2004. According to Interfax his car was equipped with a hidden camera to record Roksky tunnel security systems and 58th army military facilities. The second agent - Lieutenant Colonel of the Russian Army Imerdishvili collected "military information and selected candidates among Russian servicemen to be employed by the Georgian intelligence service".
Last year Georgian spies were uncovered in Abkhazia too.
