The Central Intelligence Agency is looking for Russians who are “disgusted” with the Ukraine war to recruit them as spies, David Marlowe, the agency’s deputy director of operations, said last week. 

Marlowe told an audience at George Mason University’s Hayden Center in Fairfax County, Virginia, that Putin was “at his best moment the day before he invaded [Ukraine]” because he had “all the power that he is ever going to have.” 

“He squandered every single bit of that,” Marlowe said, before adding: “We’re looking around the world for Russians who are as disgusted with [Putin’s actions] as we are. Because we’re open for business.”
