MOSCOW, March 5. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court on Thursday sentenced a former Russian police officer to 15 years in prison for spying for the US special services.
Roman Ushakov was found guilty of treason by handing over the cipher of a classified telegram of the Russian Interior Ministry to the CIA.
Ushakov was paid $37,000 hidden in a cache disguised as a rock. He was caught red-handed in 2013 when he was trying to open the cache and pleaded guilty.
A total of nine people were arrested in Moscow for high treason and espionage between January 1, 2014, and March 3, 2015, the press secretary of Moscow City court, Ulyana Sokolova told TASS.
"In the period of January 1, 2014, through to March 3, 2015, Moscow City’s Lefortovo district court issued resolutions administering custody as a pretrial measure to seven individuals accused of high treason and two more individuals charged with espionage," she said.
