MOSCOW - One of the Russian spies deported along with 12 other agents from the United States in July has become an international projects advisor at Russia's largest oil company, Rosneft , Kommersant reported on Monday.

The Russian business daily, citing sources in the Kremlin, said ex-sleeper agent Andrei Bezrukov had been appointed as Rosneft president Eduard Khudainatov's personal international projects advisor.

A Rosneft spokesman declined to comment on the report.

Just after Bezrukov and the other Russians that the United States accused of being agents were deported to Russia in a Cold-War style spy swap, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin promised them a bright future in Russia.
