    The original article all these others are based on is well worth reading too, IMO. It's amazing how they managed to discover the intelligence officer's identity despite him having absolutely no social media presence and so had to rely on leaked Russian government databases (e.g. passport application forms) and sources within the Russian military leading them to an old photo from his military Academy graduation ceremony.
