US Arrests 11 People on Suspicion of Espionage for Russia

A US court has charged 11 people with involvement into an alleged Russian network illegally exporting American technologies to Russian military and intel agencies. The defendants, four of them are of Russian origin, may potentially face over 400 years in jail each.

      The main suspect is Alexander Fishenko, a Kazakhstan-born owner of a Texas export firm, who together with his employees was supposedly engaged in systematic conspiracy to obtain cutting-edge microelectronics from U.S. makers and export them to Russia.

      The microelectronics are subject to strict government control in US due to their potential use in a wide range of military systems, including radar and surveillance systems, weapons guidance systems, and detonation triggers.

      All the Russian defendants have already denied any involvement into a espionage activities.

      Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said Russia was unsatisfied with the U.S. because they were not informed about the arrest of Russian citizens.
