On 24 September 1971 the UK expelled 90 Soviet diplomatic and other representatives on espionage charges and barred the return of 15 others who were temporarily out of the country. The names of the 105 Soviet intelligence operatives had been provided one month earlier to British counterintelligence officers by a KGB defector, Oleg Adolfovich Lyalin, who also provided information on the planned infiltration into England of Soviet agents for the purpose of sabotage. Other documents provided by the defector detailed Soviet plans for infiltrating segments of the Royal Navy.

Among those, five later became Soviet or Russian Federation Ambassadors.
