The enigma of the Sleeper Agents

At the expense of resurrecting this post. A couple of interesting articles have cropped
up. The first deals with Germany's intention to prosecute, two reactivated Russian
Sleeper agents arrested last year for Espionage.

Soviet Sleepers, reactivated

The second looks at how thoroughly the Soviet / Russian Sleeper agents have to
immerse themselves deeply into the language and culture of their target country,
so they can think, sleep and dream like an American.

Sleepers deep cover language

Britain may have dozens of Russian sleeper spies of the type arrested in
the US, a couple of years ago but according to Intelligence analyst,
Glenmore Trenear-Harvey, the use of illegals are an anachronism. As they
involve the greatest investment of time and money before they are able
to take over an identity and lie low but whats made them slightly redundant
are the number of Expat Russians who are able to live freely in the west.

Those Soviet Sleepers are back

The Americans

The Americans, trailer

Oh look, those Soviet Sleepers are back. This time appearing weekly on the
FX Network in the States. No doubt a spin off from the successful FBI Investigation,
called Operation Ghost Stories, which culminated in the arrest of 10
Russian deep cover agents in the United States, including the femme fatale
of Russian Spies, Anna Chapman.

Created by American writer Joe Weisberg, The Americans is Cold War drama set
in the 1980's where Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings are an undercover team of
Soviet intelligence agents, working deep cover in the heartland of the United
States. Their true identities are a secret to everyone, even their own children,
Paige and Henry.
Of course its not a patch on the British version of Sleepers, starring Nigel
Havers and Warren Clarke but interesting nevertheless,

Wow, I see the number of hit's have gone up since 'The Americans' was released on British ( ITV1 )
as well as America TV this year.

You never know it might prove a boost to the number of tourists visiting Ukrainian, tracking
down Spy towns.

Lt. Campers - you have no photos of the most interesting part of this article - no pictures of the jukebox - the signs - they may have been there before - but clearly the were not there when you were there or you would have taken pictures.

Here is the information I collected about this town:

Note - its hidden away on this website but if you scroll down and select
'Car Talk' it should stand out in the forum.

MoscowAmerican, 
try to keep in mind that you've dredged up a necro thread that wasn't touched since 2013. Lt Campers hasn't been around for a while either.
In Russia we only had two TV channels. Channel One was propaganda. Channel Two consisted of a KGB officer telling you: Turn back at once to Channel One. Yakov Smirnoff

Lt. Campers is probably a fraud.

It appears the spy town picture is from a movie.

Note to Lt Campers:
Did you ever try living in the present day and start thinking about the future?
Just an idea.

Bet your wife says the same thing about your clothes.

I plotted this location on a map

and zoomed in using google earth,
but the buildings dont seem to resemble any (american) town or suburb
now im really curious to see if this fake town is real
and where it is located

I can assure you, that the American town for training WAS real.
Don't ask how I know for sure, I won't give out anymore information.
