Photo: svr.gov.ru the Intelligence agent Alexander Poteev condemned in Russia for treason and who has given to Americans Anna Chapman and other "spies" hasn't died, approves the American edition Buzzfeed. Mass media have reported possible death of Poteev in July, 2016. Activity of the double agent became known in 2006 when he has been enlisted by Americans then he began to transfer them the information about agents of the Russian intelligence. So, eight years ago Poteev has handed over to the American intelligence agencies a number of the Russian agents among whom there was also Anna Chapman. Later between two states exchange has taken place: in exchange on ten Russians Moscow has given out to Washington four people, including the ex-colonel and the personnel manager of GRU Sergey Skripal. Earlier media reported that Poteev could flee from Russia to the USA by means of the passport received on a fictitious surname Dudochkin. After Poteev "have buried". But in Buzzfeed think differently. Journalists of the edition have made investigation and have found out that since 2016 the ex-colonel of SVR Poteev lives in Florida, and is opened, under the name. Sources of Buzzfeed have learned that two years ago he has received a penalty for violation of traffic regulations and also the license for fishing which he has bought in the Walmart supermarket. Besides, Poteev was registered on elections as the republican and has voted. In the column "second name" Poteev has written "Nickname": journalists consider that it is the American version of a middle name Nikolaevich. The ex-colonel of SVR specified the real personal data in all these documents, even date of birth — on March 7, 1952. Journalists have also visited the house where presumably Poteev lives, however one concierge has answered them that Alex itself goes down if it waits for someone. To the second address Poteev's relative has agreed to transfer in the apartment to it phone of the journalist and has hung up. Information that Poteev is alive was confirmed also by the journalist of BBC Mark Urban in the book "Skripal's Business" which has appeared on October 4. According to Buzzfeed, the place of residence of Poteev from the moment of his arrival to the USA was kept a strict secret. The edition writes that the American federal law for safety provides with the round-the-clock protection not only Poteev, but also other Russian deserters. In Russia Poteev for treason was in absentia sentenced to 25 years of imprisonment. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
