Double agent from the USSR betrayed a swedish that saved jews.

// News about the fact that there was a Soviet double agent who betrayed a Swede who saved some Jews.

A double agent of the Soviet Union may have betrayed the Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews from Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War, said a researcher. 

The researcher Wilhelm Agrell, also of Sweden, said that studies of Swedish and Soviet documents, Wallenberg, who was arrested by the police of the Soviet Union in Hungary in January 1945, may have been delivered by his friend Vilmos Bohm. 

Agrell wrote an article published by the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter that Bohm was a Soviet double agent known as Orestes. The agent had informed the police about the activities of Soviet Wallenberg. 

A Swedish government report released in March states that both Wallenberg and Bohm worked secretly to Britain and the USA. Bohm serve as contact Wallenberg in Stockholm. 

If Bohm told his bosses the Soviets even told his superiors in the British delegation, then Raoul Wallenberg was betrayed and his fate still a mystery, Agrell wrote. 

Russia has said Wallenberg was taken to a prison in the country and who died in 1947. The Russian government has acknowledged that the arrest of the Swede was given for political reasons. 

Wallenberg helped thousands of Hungarian Jews escape the Nazis by issuing them Swedish passports. 

The diplomat's story has always been a mystery and many accused the Swedish government not to try to uncover the truth. 

Sweden remained neutral during World War II.
