At the US Embassy in Moscow found Russian spy

A suspected Russian spy worked at the US Embassy in Moscow for a decade before being quietly dismissed previous year, according to reports.

The woman first came under the radar of embassy officials in mid-2016, which led to her security clearance being revoked, reported The Guardian.

A female employee came under suspicion following a routine security sweep by the State Department - it found she was having regular unauthorised meetings with the Russian intelligence agency FSB.

It said: "At no time, in any US Secret Service office, have FSNs been provided or placed in a position to obtain national security information".

However, a Guardian source reportedly said her dismissal was timed by the Secret Service to occur just after the Kremlin's expulsion of U.S. diplomatic personnel in order to shield the agency from embarrassment.

"The Secret Service is trying to hide the breach by firing [her]", the Guardian, citing source, reported.

Other embassy employees reportedly emailed the woman at her non-work account, breaking protocol and potentially worsening the problem.

"Only an intense investigation by an outside source can determine the damage she has done", the source added.

In a statement, U.S. Secret Service officials rejected the British paper's claims of a cover-up and high-level security breach as "categorically false" and said "the article is wrought with irresponsible and inaccurate reporting based on the claims of "anonymous" sources".

The reports come just over two weeks after USA authorities arrested Russian national Maria Butina in Washington, D.C. over suspicions that she worked for Russian intelligence.

All non-American workers are vetted and employed by the State Department before being assigned work by different agencies.

The State Department declined to comment, saying they "do not comment on allegations related to intelligence or personnel matters, and we have no information for you on this alleged incident".

Relations between the U.S. and Russian Federation have been particularly fraught since the election of Donald Trump, despite the president's personal warmth with his counterpart Vladimir Putin. Foreign employees are relegated to "translation, interpretation, cultural guidance, liaison and administrative support" duties, specifically because they "can be subjected to foreign intelligence influence".
