Is there still Russian spying activity going on in Britain, even though the Cold War has ended?

Security sources in Whitehall have told the BBC Russian intelligence officers spying in Britain are every bit as active today as they were during the Cold War.

They say there are more than 30 known Russian spies operating in Britain, for both their overseas intelligence service, the SVR, and Russia's military intelligence arm, the GRU.

They are believed to report directly to two controllers in London, known as "
the Residents".

What a relief, huh?!!

And this guy Litvinenko probably just died from listening to too much Negativland!
