Russia Silent on Envoy

Russia said Tuesday it had no comment on the whereabouts of a senior diplomat who left Washington amid U.S. press reports he was a spy.

The Russian Embassy confirmed Monday that press attache Vladimir Frolov, a first secretary in the post for four years, had left Washington but declined to react to a New York Times report quoting intelligence officials as saying he was a spy.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman refused comment Tuesday when asked what Frolov's job in Moscow would be.
