Code-named GT/GAUZE by the Central Intelligence Agency, Major Motorin was blackmailed into cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in early 1982 following his participation in an illegal transaction involving duty-free goods that was spotted by  surveillance. He was selected as one of Vitali Yurchenko’s four KGB escorts on his flight home on 6 November 1985 and was arrested on his arrival at Sheremetyevo Airport, having been identified as a spy by Aldrich Ames.
