This tale of an unauthorized incursion behind the Iron Curtain makes for funny, occasionally cringeworthy reading.
I’m just glad this was after Project RYAN, which nobody on this side knew about. Still, there was a lot of this “fucking with the other side” stuff going on during the Cold War on both sides without triggering World War III. Someday all the tales will come to light and it will make for fascinating reading.

You should read “Blind Man’s Bluff”:
True declassfied stories of submarine espionage during the Cold War — right up to our sailing into Soviet coastal waters and splicing taps onto their military phone cables.
Yeah, though I was thinking more of the unauthorized “games” played between the sides than actual espionage…though of course the full story of that may never be told, either.
