The two spy service agents are from North Korea, they must have been surprised the Ukrainian scientist didn't take their bribe! Probably made the mistake of thinking Ukrainians are all like Russians. During the Soviet era the development of the space programs all came from Ukraine, recall launches being delayed because Moscow wanted no launches performed in Ukraine as to avoid embarrassment to Russia proper. That's how the train launch system was developed... It was originally designed to get the assets developed away from Ukraine. Funny i reflect on Canada's advanced fighter jet Arrow project of old and how western nations all banded together and asked Canada to scrap this fighter as its 20 years more advanced than anything the world had scene, so Canada complied and all the researcher went to work for NASA, and even took the elusive wind tunnel. Regardless Ukraine has heavy trades with North Korea so all will be fine but it does show how military nations embassy staff should be watched with serious eyes.

Very Interesting post, but I stay away from the spy stuff. Too political for me.
