Russian state oil firm denies hiring spy

Russian state-owned pipeline operator Transneft has denied reports that it hired a member of the Russian spy ring uncovered in the United States in June, a spokesman said on Wednesday. The statement follows a report by the Kommer­sant newspaper that Natalia Pereverzeva, a.k.a. Patricia Mills, was made an aide to Transneft’s president. “We don’t have any aide by this first and last name,” spokesman Igor Dyomin said.
