PSKOV, August 19. /TASS/. A court in Pskov sentenced Estonian citizen Eston Kohver to 15 years in jail and a 100,000 ruble fine, a TASS correspondent reported on Wednesday. Kohver was found guilty in espionage, smuggling and illegal possession of arms, as well as in nine instances of illegally crossing the state border.
Kohver was detained in Russia’s northwestern Pskov region on September 5, 2014 for allegedly carrying out an undercover operation on the territory of Russia. The Russian Federal Security Service reported at that time that a handgun, 5,000 euros in cash, special covert audio recording equipment and materials indicative of a spying mission were confiscated from Kohver, when he was apprehended.
