FBI: Russian spy ring tried to recruit students at major New York university

The Federal Bureau of Investigation busted an alleged three-man spy ring in New York last month, which the agency said was trying to recruit from a university.

According to the FBI, the spy ring was attempting to “illegally gather economic and other intelligence information from the United States.”

As part of their plan, the alleged spies were trying to recruit residents, “including several individuals employed by major companies, and several young women with ties to a major university located in New York, New York,” according to an FBI news release.
