FSB Names Former Russian Spy In Estonia

December 14, 2014

Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) has revealed the name of one of its agents who spied for the FSB for 20 years while also being employed at Estonia's internal security police (KAPO).

The FSB said Udo Puusepp was an FSB agent who was key to Russia receiving information about anti-Russian activities in Estonia and the work of the security services of the United States, Sweden, Great Britain, and other countries in the Baltic nation.

Puusepp appeared on the Russian channel NTV on December 14, giving a lengthy interview about his time working for KAPO and delivering information to the FSB.

Pussepp joined the KGB in the 1970s and claims he was one of several former KGB agents that Estonian authorities kept on for work in KAPO.

KAPO dismissed Pussepp three years ago after which Puusepp moved to Moscow.

It was unclear why the FSB chose now to disclose Puusepp's work.
