Maria’s legitimate identity began to be revealed when the intelligence service detected an attempt to access the data of deceased Greek citizens. This practice is attributed to Russia’s Intelligence Services and dates back to Cold War times.

Data from deceased citizens would be used to create other false identities for Russian spies. Tsalla would have appropriated, in 2018, the documents of a Greek child who died in December 1991. Maria would have paid approximately 5 million euros for the new identity.
