Molody, Konon Trofimovich

(1922–1970)
   One of the most famous KGB illegals, Molody was educated in the United States. After service in the Soviet army in World War II, he was recruited by the KGB and dispatched to London under the cover of a Canadian businessperson, Gordon Lonsdale. In London, Molody ran several sources, including English agents within the Admiralty. In 1961, as a result of the defection of a Polish intelligence officer to the West, Molody was arrested. He spent three years in a British prison before being exchanged for a British agent in Soviet captivity.
