Russia’s FSB punishes graduates for flashy celebration – BBC News

Russia’s FSB security service says it will punish a group of new agents who allowed themselves to be photographed lavishly celebrating their graduation.

The graduates were seen driving a convoy of black Mercedes jeeps noisily through Moscow last month, blocking traffic and hanging out of the windows.

Some veteran Russian spies have said such behaviour amounted to treason.

The FSB says those involved will have the conditions of their service changed, without elaborating further.
