MOSCOW, December 11 (RAPSI) – The Moscow City Court has sentenced ex-police officer Alexey Zhitnyuk to 13 years in prison for transferring classified information to an alleged Norwegian spy, the court’s press service has told RAPSI.

The man has been found guilty of treason. Additionally, he has been deprived of his rank of senior police lieutenant. His case has been heard behind closed doors because of secrecy.
