Has diplomatic passports.

Police apprehended two suspected Russian intelligence agents in Davos last August, a Swiss newspaper reports.
Tages-Anzeiger says the men, who had diplomatic passports, may have been preparing a spying operation targeting the World Economic Forum (WEF).

It adds that the pair, one of whom was posing as a plumber, were subsequently released.

Swiss police confirmed to the BBC that two Russians were "checked" in August 2019.

The Russian embassy in Bern told the BBC that the newspaper was just trying to "whip out a scandal out of nothing".
