U.S. Hires Company With K.G.B. Link to Guard Moscow Embassy

Washington has hired a private Russian company that grew out of a security business co-founded by Mr. Putinís former K.G.B. boss, an 82-year-old veteran spy who spent 25 years planting agents in Western security services and hunting down their operatives.

Under a $2.8 million no-bid contract awarded by the Office of Acquisitions in Washington, security guards at the American Embassy in Moscow and at consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok will be provided by Elite Security Holdings, a company closely linked to the former top K.G.B. figure, Viktor G. Budanov, a retired general who rose through the ranks to become head of Soviet counterintelligence.

1. I cringe to think of all the US secrets being turned over

To Putin by this administration. We are about to find out if the US can survive with Putin knowing all our secrets.
