MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) apprehended a resident of Yalta in Crimea for spying for the Ukrainian intelligence, the FSB press office told TASS on Wednesday.
"The Federal Security Service has foiled the activity of a Russian citizen who was spying for the Ukrainian Security Service. The Yalta City Court ruled to remand him in custody as a measure of restraint," the press office said.
As the FSB said, "it was found that in 2017-2018 the Yalta resident gathered and transferred data constituting state secrets, including the data on the Federal Security Service personnel, on an assignment from the Ukrainian intelligence."
Investigators have opened a criminal case on counts of the crime stipulated by article 275 of Russia’s Criminal Code (‘High Treason by Espionage’).
This crime is punishable with a prison term of 12 to 20 years.
The video footage uploaded by the FSB shows the individual suspected of high treason apprehended in an apartment of a residential building. He did not put up any resistance.
