Also in the material stated that "Russian intelligence" often found themselves in the distribution of fiber optic lines, "probably making maps of American communication systems."
From the material:

As one of these “rituals,” a consular officer in San Francisco “for unexplained reasons walked around the tree several times.” Based on this fact, it is a far-reaching conclusion that Russian employees tried to "deceive the American special services."
