Richard L. Bliss, an American technician charged with espionage, will not have to go back to Russia, a U.S. official said in Washington. Bliss was arrested Nov. 25 in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don while installing a cellular telephone system. Presumably, Russian officials knew that he could not be compelled to return when they allowed him to go home for the Christmas holidays.
