Putin meets with deported spies.
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has met with the Russian spies deported from the United States following the Russia-U.S. spy scandal and sang patriotic songs with them.
"I met with them," Putin said, answering the journalists' questions whether he met with 10 Russian spies deported from the United States.
Ten people were arrested by U.S. law enforcement in June on suspicion of being part of an espionage ring. After the spy swap deal they were deported from the United States.
Putin, as a former KGB officer, talked about life with the spies and sang songs accompanied by the live music. Among the others, they sang a famous patriotic Russian song "What Motherland starts from".
Commenting on the spies' future, Putin said "they will work".
"I am sure they will work in the decent places, I am sure they will have interesting and bright life."
