The FBI is charging three Russian nationals of operating a spy ring in Manhattan, because the U.S.-Russia relationship really needs more drama right now.
The FBI accuses Evgeny Buryakov, a banker working at a Russian firm in New York, of illegally passing information to two Russian diplomats. Buryakov was arrested Monday; both officials have already left the country.
The current FBI investigation is an offshoot of a previous bust of 10 other alleged Russian operatives in 2010.
