I always worried about this point in the movie. Quite evidently there's the top of a periscope sticking up somewhere where it has a decent view of the room inside the Russian consulate. Yet nobody seems to have ever noticed it. I presume it must be hidden inside a mousehole or something, but you'd think that regular cleaning and maintenance would notice and repair a mousehole.

So I dunno. I guess the Russians are just careless.
