The US embassy employee accused of spying for the CIA in Moscow has left Russia, the BBC reports. Five days after the country accused him of "provocative actions in the spirit of the Cold War" after it allegedly caught him trying to recruit spies, diplomat Ryan Fogle has been shown passing through airport security on Russian TV. He will be best remembered for the atrocious blonde wig he was wearing in footage allegedly showing his arrest, as shown over at the Guardian. (More Ryan Fogle stories.)
