MOSCOW, December 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin is aware of Stanislav Yezhov’s detention in Ukraine on charges of treason in favor of Russia.
"We’ve read news [of the detention,] but we have no information [about it,]" Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. He added that he cannot comment on the detention due to the absence of detailed information.
Some news outlets reported that the Ukraine Intelligence Service arrested Yezhov who worked as an interpreter for Ukraine’s Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman.
According to Kiev, Russian intelligence services allegedly recruited Yezhov during a business trip, whereupon he purportedly began "spying" for Russia.
