MOSCOW (Dispatches) -- The Kremlin has defended a new security decree, saying foreign spies are observing Russian scientists at all times.
"Of course we must be somewhat vigilant, because foreign special services are on alert," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, answering a question on the decree from the science and education ministry. "There is such a thing as scientific and industrial espionage," Peskov said, adding, "It exists 24/7 and is targeting our scientists, especially young scientists."
