Alex Vavilov, born and raised in Canada, ‘vindicated and happy’ years after he was stripped of citizenship when his parents were arrested by the FBI in 2010

The son of two deep-cover Russian spies has had his Canadian citizenship restored after a long legal battle. The Canadian government had stripped Alex Vavilov of his citizenship after his parents were exposed by the FBI as KGB spies who had spent several decades pretending to be Canadian.

Vavilov was born Alexander Foley in Toronto and grew up in France and the US, believing his parents were Canadian-born naturalised Americans. However, in 2010, his parents were arrested by the FBI in a roundup of 11 Russian spies. At the time, Alex was 16.
