Russia has acknowledged that a CIA spy who worked in Moscow and reported on Vladimir Putin had worked in the Russian government, but did not have direct access to President Putin.

US media reported Monday that US intelligence services carried out an operation in 2017 to extract a high-level Russian official and a CIA asset.

When given a name, the Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that the man had worked in the Russian presidential administration, but was fired in 2016/17.

He refused to say whether he was an agent or not, but said US media read reports like & # 39; pulp fiction & # 39 ;.

Despite the provision of vital information from the inner circle of Vladimir Putin, the spy was withdrawn from Moscow in 2017 for fear of their safety.

The initial refusal of the spy to move to America had led to concern that they might be a double agent.

According to a report from the New York Times, this is the agent who reported that Putin himself had organized Russia's efforts to get involved in the 2016 elections.

But fear of the security of the spy was said to have grown in the midst of an intensive investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

The agent in question allegedly photographed secrets on Putin's desk and sent them to his American spy bosses.
