Spy scandal in France




The lieutenant colonel handed over top-secret documents to the Russian special services





The Russian special services continue to recruit high-ranking officers from NATO countries to spy for the Russian Federation. So the French prosecutor's office launched an investigation against the lieutenant colonel of the Armed Forces in connection with the suspicion of transferring important information to the Russian special services. The Minister of the Armed Forces of France, Florence Parly, spoke about this on the air of radio Europe 1.

“I can confirm that a judicial investigation has been initiated against a high-ranking officer in connection with the suspicion of transferring [top-secret documents to the Russian special services] or inflicting damage to security. A corresponding procedure was initiated against him since the Ministry of the Armed Forces initiated an appeal to the prosecutor’s office,” she stated.

She added that only the judicial system will be able to confirm the motives of the soldier's actions and determine the elements of a possible crime.



According to the radio station, this officer served at a military base in Italy. He was detained by officers from the General Directorate of Internal Security (DGSI) of France as he planned to return to Italy at the end of his vacation.
