well skripal they kinda failled but got away, seem they accomplished their mission at the arms depot and got away again.

i mean if they have to go thru a city full of cctv pretty much a given in hindsight they will be seen but what do you expect ? them having a cctv map of all angle in the city and walk/crawl/climb all over the place while going down the street ?

Why bother with advanced training or techniques?  If no one retaliates, what does it matter if a few extra eggs are cracked to make an omelet?

How are we allowed to call it black ops anymore.

When a country finds a Russian agent, why expel them so they can return to Russia? These criminal spies should simply vanish.

If no one really retaliates then doesn't it just make the intimidation program more effective? This isn't really spying, it's sabotage.

Stalin:  The Mericanskis have the bomba!  We must have it.  Where are my spies?

Moeski, Larry the Vlad and Curliski rush in

Moeski:  He we are your terribleness!  Three of the best spies that ever spied
Culinski:  Spy eye aye aye!  Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk
(Moeski boinks him)
Larry the Vlad:  (Points to Stalin)  Is this the guy who thinks he runs the show?
(Now it's just Moeski and Curliski.  Larry the Vlad has vanished)
Curliski:  Where's Larry?
Moeski:  Ixnay on arrylay, oronmay.
Curliski:  But he was right here!
(Now it's Moeski and Shempski)
Moeski:  What are your orders, oh benevolent overlord
Shempski:  I just got here
(Stalin machinegun slaps Moeski and Shempski)
Stalin:  I must have the bomb!  Go to America and get me plans for their bomb!
Shempski:  Or what
(Now it's Moeski and Joe Besser)
(Stalin Glares)
(Now it's Moeski and Joe DelRita)
Stalin:  Only slightly better.  Now go!

Much better to secretly tag them, cover them like a blanket, and feed them false info. Then, after they have been compromised enough that outing them will result in their deaths by their own government, turn them.

The spy you know is much preferred to the spy you don't know.

If we did that, then we could expect Russia to do the same with any of ours that they catch.

They do, skilled ones are deployed by the organization formerly known as KGB and they are pretty much the gold standard for spooks.
These are obviusly military intelligence (GRU) thugs, cheap dumb and brutal.

Actually, there are some pretty well-observed treaties about that. Only overt dictatorships ignore them.
It keeps the spy game going.

Then again, there are spies, and there are agents-provocatuer,which is what these guys are. The GRU is military intelligence, and is a not exactly trained for foreign ops.

You'd be unlikely to see the same errors from the FSB, and I'd judge it likely that the FSB actually manipulated it so these guys went in rather than some of their own, so they didn't actually risk real spies.

They *do* hire skilled spies, Subby, they do.

These are the *distraction*.  Ever hear of a sacrificial anode?

TFA:  "Petrov and Boshirov -- that would be a great series! Better than James Bond," joked one Twitter user.

The appropriate comparison is Maxwell Smart.

I think they were trying to make a spy vanish.

Bingo.  These are the pawns.  You never hear of the bishops, rooks, knights, and queens.
