Sergey Cherkasov studied in US under false identity and is accused of working for Russian intelligence
US authorities have released new details about an alleged Russian spy who attempted to penetrate the international criminal court in the Hague, using a false identity developed over a decade.
An indictment made public on Saturday accuses Sergey Cherkasov, who US intelligence believes is an elite “illegal” operative of Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency. Cherkasov posed as Brazilian citizen Victor Muller Ferreira over many years.
