NEW YORK, April 1. /TASS/. Russian banker Evgeny Buryakov, earlier sentenced to 30 years in prison for gathering sensitive information in the United States for Russia as "a Russian foreign intelligence officer," has been let out on parole, a spokesperson for Federal Correctional Institution near Elkton (Ohio), where the Russian had been held, told TASS on Saturday.
The spokesperson confirmed that Buryakov had been released on Friday.
In May 2016, Buryakov was sentenced to 30 months in jail for gathering sensitive information in the US as "a Russian foreign intelligence officer" for the benefit of Russia. In line with the court’s ruling, he is to be deported to Russia and barred from entering the US. Also, the court ordered the Russian to pay a fine of $10,000.
FBI agents detained Yevgeny Buryakov, the deputy representative of Russian bank Vnesheconombank in New York, on espionage charges in the city’s Bronx district on January 26, 2015. An official charge of spying for Russian foreign intelligence service was brought against him on February 9, 2015.
