OK, we've heard this all before. I got it all the time on my mission. But this Russian professor proves it--Mormon missionaries are SPIES!

See it here in the Interfax online paper:

CIA agents in Mormon disguise are probable to work in Russia, a renowned sect expert believes

Moscow, August 21, Interfax - President of the Russian Association of Centers for Religious and Sectarian Studies Professor Alexander Dvorkin is concerned with Mormon activities in the Russian Federation.

"We have been informed that American Mormon missionaries were detained on the territory of secret military facilities more than once. They are accused of having CIA connections, and it is reasonable," he is quoted as saying by the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Thursday.

According to the professor, Mormons have commercial interest: "they actively buy fishing industry."Dvorkin called this sect "a rich transnational corporation."

"They always need people for "tithe" - a tenth part of income paid as a compulsory contribution to the sect. According to the experts, today Mormon's tithe makes one third of their income," he stated.

As Dvorkin said earlier, there are over 80 big sects active in more than half Russian regions. He thinks, minor sects numbers "in thousands."
OK, just so no one is confused, LDS tithing is 1/10th of your income. I sure hope tithing in Russia is not 1/3. Compulsory even! Phew! That would be killer!
