Russia spies plead guilty in US amid swap rumours
Ten defendants accused of spying for Russia have pleaded guilty in New York to acting as foreign agents.
The pleas are expected to set the stage for the biggest spy-swap between Russia and the USA since the days of the Cold War.
The arrests were made more than a week ago, after an investigation which lasted more than a decade.
Robert Baum, attorney for Anna Chapman, said that those who have entered guilty pleas will be transferred to Moscow.
