    Actually often spies are useful idiots... for instance the MiG-25P was a serious upgrade that only got into service because Belenko compromised the older model.

    The upgrades to the MiG-31 were also largely because secret information was passed on to the west that might not otherwise have been funded.

    When I first read about this leak my initial thoughts was that it might be a release of test information that might have been intentional because there was a lot of skepticism regarding these new weapons and a bit of spy information on successful tests might have firmed up thoughts that this is all real and not just smoke and mirrors.

    Who knows.

    Russia’s SVR declassifies documents on cooperation of Russia-UK special services

    Naryshkin handed a package of documents and photos to TV host Sergei Brilev

    MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) has declassified documents on interaction of Soviet and British special services during World War Two, SVR Head Sergey Naryshkin said in a televised interview with Rossiya-1 channel on Saturday.

    Naryshkin handed a package of documents and photos to TV host Sergei Brilev.

    "It is a joint operation with the Britons, called "Pickaxe", conducted during the Second World War. We have made public a number of archive documents about participants in that operation, about illegal agents of the Soviet intelligence agency, who represented different countries, were of different ethnic backgrounds, but who were united with a common idea of battling Nazism," he said.

    Asked by Brilev if Russia could overcome the current crisis in the Russian-British relations, Naryshkin said: "Of course, we will. Any war always ends in peace.".

    Unfortunately there needs to be the will on both sides for it to happen... and right now the general wind direction is you can get easy cheap points being anti Russian... it does not even need to make sense because it confirms what the western public is told from other sources...

    Imagine Boris as next British Prime Minister... in charge of nuclear weapons...
