Estonia's foreign intelligence claimed to have busted a network of Russia's agents of influence in this country. Mikk Mirran, the director of the Estonian government agency said this during Aspen Security Forum. Delfi reported that, quoting the official as he spoke on the issue.

'We established a network, which consists of politicians, reporters, diplomats and businessmen, which actually includes Russia's agents of influence, who are told what to do. We clearly see these people impose the Russian action plan', he said.

According to Mirran, despite the summit in Helsinki and the meeting of U.S. and Russian leaders, the Kremlin lately 'has been using influence agents more often, increasing their part in the action plan'.

The official did not disclose a single name of a figure suspected of being a part of the network.

'What they (Russians, - 112 International) offered them is the media attention, political support, exclusive business opportunities and the financial assistance, in certain cases', the head of Estonia's foreign intelligence said.
