On Oct. 23, The Washington Post released information that the FBI allegedly suspects the Russian Cultural Center in the U.S. capital and its head, Yuri Zaitsev, of recruiting Americans.

Currently, the federal investigation agency is busy questioning participants of the program. An official representative of the FBI has not yet confirmed this information.

In addition, many American newspapers and magazines have been implying that Rossotrudnichestvo — the Russian agency under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that is in charge of the country’s soft power initiatives — is organizing traineeships in Russia for American citizens, during which future agents of the Russian secret service will be recruited.
