The Tula Regional Court found a citizen of Ukraine guilty under the article on espionage and sentenced him to 16 years in prison in a strict regime colony, the United Press Service of the Courts of the Tula Region reports.
The court materials say that the person involved in the case, whose name was not disclosed, from January 2020 until his arrest in August 2021, collected information constituting a state secret in Tula in order to transfer it to a foreign state.
According to the FSB of Russia, the Ukrainian was on assignment from the intelligence services of Ukraine and collected information about promising developments in the field of small arms. For this, according to the Russian intelligence service, the man was going to recruit “employees of Russian defense enterprises from among the secret carriers.” The FSB said that they had caught a Ukrainian red-handed.
