NATO expelling dozens of suspected Russian spies from Brussels HQ (about time!)

Nato is expelling dozens of suspected Russian spies from its Brussels headquarters in a bid to reduce Moscow’s intelligence gathering amid growing east-west tensions.

Up to 45 Russian delegates are assumed to be working for their country’s intelligence services, Nato said privately, with sources claiming half of the 90 Russians at Nato headquarters were spies.

They are believed to have infiltrated the military organisation – which is drawing up plans to protect Europe from Vladimir Putin.

It comes three months after military chiefs warned that Britain has entered a new Cold War with Russia as Putin continues to flex his muscles by sending submarines and planes to probe Europe’s defences.
