“The embassy does not have information about the fate of Mr. Smolenkov. There is no information about his further movements - in which direction (he left) and where he is now, ”the RIA Novosti quotes the embassy.

Previously, CNN, citing a source, said that US intelligence agencies in 2017 exported a “high-ranking informant” from Russia. He was allegedly evacuated due to the risk of his exposure due to the "careless attitude" of US leader Donald Trump to classified information.

According to some media reports, we are talking about Oleg Smolenkov. According to media reports, he traveled from Russia to Montenegro with his family in 2017, where they went missing.

A spokesman for Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Smolenkov worked in the Kremlin’s administration, but was fired several years ago.
