MOSCOW, December 1 (RAPSI) - Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court has prolonged detention of blogger Andrey Pyzh charged with illegal access to the data constituting a state secret until March 5, RAPSI has learnt from the court’s press office.

Defense asked to put Pyzh under house arrest.

Investigators objected to mitigation of the restrictive measure claiming that the defendant had adequate resources for obstruction of justice and escape due to his Ukrainian citizenship. Pyzh met with people who furnished secret information to him. The accused transferred the data abroad through the Internet and during personal trips, according to the investigation. 

The blogger runs Urbanturizm channel where he publishes video about closed and abandoned objects.

The case is classified. If convicted, Pyzh could face up to 8 years behind bars.
