MOSCOW, November 12./TASS/. A Moscow region court has sentenced former police officer Yevgeny Chistov to 13 years in prison for passing classified information to the CIA, the public relations center of the Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) told TASS.

"Being recruited by American intelligence and fulfilling its tasks, he was for three years gathering information available to him at service, including state secrets, and leaking it abroad for monetary reward," it added.
