Russian Supreme Court mitigates Ukrainian spy’s sentence by 3.5 years
MOSCOW, October 15 (RAPSI) – The Supreme Court of Russia on Tuesday reduced prison sentence given to Ukrainian national Constantine Davydenko for espionage from 10.5 to 7 years, RAPSI was told by the court’s press service.
The hearing was held behind closed doors due to the case secrecy.
The Supreme Court of Crimea convicted and sentenced Davydenko in June.
According to the FSB, Davydenko, a recruit of the Ukrainian Security Service, has purposively collected information on advanced weaponry, electronics, third generation communications gear and night vision system in Crimea. The leak of such an information could harm Russia’s security.
The man was arrested in February 2018. During the trial Davydenko pleaded guilty.
