canadian officials: They were sent back to Moscow as part of a swap for prisoners in Russia, according to Vancouver Courier. Alexander, who finished high school in Russia, changed his surname to Vavilov on the advice of Canadian officials in a bid to obtain a Canadian passport. The parents were arrested eight years ago in the United States and indicted on charges of conspiring to act as secret agents on behalf of Russia's SVR, a successor to the infamous Soviet KGB. Heathfield and Foley admitted to being Andrey Bezrukov and Elena Vavilova. But he ran into hurdles at the passport office and in August 2014 the citizenship registrar said the government no longer recognized him to be a Canadian citizen. The Federal Court of Canada upheld the decision. The registrar said his parents were employees of a foreign government at the time of his birth, making him ineligible for citizenship.
