KALININGRAD, December 25. /TASS/. Court in Russia's westernmost Kaliningrad region has sentenced Lieutenant Colonel of the Baltic Fleet Fyodor Boriskin, ret., to twelve years in a high security jail for high treason, the press service of the regional branch of the Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Friday.
