Russian Lawyer Says FSB Officers, Kaspersky Manager Charged With Treason

А Russian lawyer has confirmed the arrests of two Federal Security Service (FSB) officers and a manager at a Russian cybersecurity company on treason charges, and that they are suspected of passing classified information to U.S. intelligence.

Ivan Pavlov, who is representing one of the detainees, told RFE/RL in a phone interview on February 1 that more than three people had been detained in the case. He refused to identify his client or whether his client was an employee of the FSB.

Pavlov’s remarks were the first independent confirmation of the arrests, which occurred in December.
