NRC Handelsblad quotes Dolmatov as saying that he was first approached by the FSB in 2008 through the management of the secret plant he worked for.

His second contact took place in November 2011, shortly after he got involved in the activities of the Other Russia, an unregistered opposition party. 

According to his testimony, he was offered to play the role of a traitor and work as a spy in Europe. 

He refused both timed, he said, and was forced to flee Russia. 

On 17 January 2013, he committed suicide in a deportation centre in Rotterdam.


According to his Dutch lawyer quoted by the news agency, Dolmatov was out of reach for some time so the lawyer had to file an appeal on his own.      

The police arrested Dolmatov and put his into the deportation centre by mistake, he added. It was legal for the activist to stay for several more months in the Netherlands awaiting the decision by the appeals court. But obviously, the lawyer says, neither he nor the police were aware that the appeal had been filed.
