US appears to be in deep trouble first with the Deep water oil rig explosion and now with the deep cover Russian spy ring. 56-year old Christopher Metsos, the paymaster of this deep cover Russian spy ring that had been operating in the US has gone missing. He jumped bail in Cyprus and theories are doing the rounds that he has been whisked away to Russia by the Russian Intelligence service. It is believed that Metsos, a Canadian, was the go-between the 10 Russian operators in the US and the setup in Russia. Apparently, he used to receive money from a Russian agent as payouts which he would bury in a North Virginia park – the operators would dig up and take home their respective earnings.
