Russian engineer jailed for 13 years for passing data to CIA

MOSCOW (AFP) - A Russian space centre engineer received a 13-year jail sentence on Friday on charges of passing secret strategic missile data to the United States Central Intelligence Service (CIA) in return for cash. Russia's FSB security service said Plesetsk launch site engineer Vladimir Nesterets admitted receiving cash payments for information about 'tests on Russia's latest strategic missile systems.' Russia uses its north-western Plesetsk complex for both military and commercial launches. The conviction came just days after Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told an FSB meeting that foreign governments were stepping up their spying activities in the country. Mr Medvedev said at the time that the FSB had uncovered 199 foreign spies and agents last year. He added that some of those detained were Russian nationals working for Western states.
