Russian Spy Kids May Stay in U.S.

NEW YORK (AP) - Ten Russian spies are giving up their lives in the United States and are heading home, but in at least one case their children probably won't follow.

A lawyer for Vicky Pelaez says the teenage son she had with fellow Russian agent Mikhail Vasenkov during the decades they spent living in New York most likely will remain in the U.S. after she leaves. Attorney John Rodriguez says her 38-year-old son from a prior marriage also will stay behind.

Arrangements are being made to relocate other children of the Russian spies, who on Thursday admitted infiltrating the U.S. under assumed names to gather information for Moscow.

All 10 members of the spy ring are being deported to Russia. Eight are parents and have children in the U.S.
