MOSCOW, July 8 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Lefortovsky District Court detained advisor of the Roscosmos state corporation’s CEO and ex-journalist of Kommersant newspaper Ivan Safronov until September 6 as part of a treason case, RAPSI reported from the courtroom on Tuesday.

Investigators suspect Safronov of transmitting secret military information to the Czech intelligence services which, as it known, are linked to the U.S. security agencies, his attorney Ivan Pavlov told RAPSI. 

Safronov was arrested on Tuesday. He is charged with treason. According to the Roscosmos press service, Safronov’s arrest is not connected with his work in the company.

The former reporter of Kommersant and Vedomosti newspapers was appointed as advisor of Dmitry Rogozin in May 2020 after a scandal related to the publication of  an explosive article about possible resignation of the Federation Council head Valentina Matviyenko.
