Military Review

American soldier received 16 years in prison for attempting to reveal the secret to "Russian spy"

20

Military police officer William Colton Millay was sentenced to imprisonment by the tribunal for attempting to sell classified information to Russian intelligence. According to AFP, Millay was arrested red-handed during a joint operation by the FBI and counterintelligence - a figurehead emerged as a Russian spy.


The prosecution insisted on 19’s imprisonment, but the court took into account the 535 days spent under investigation after the arrest and reduced the sentence.

For the first time, a young man serving in Alaska attracted the attention of the FBI in the summer of 2011: he wrote several letters to Russian publications asking for help to contact the military, and also made several calls to the Russian embassy.

In September 2011, an undercover agent disguised as a Russian spy made an appointment with the military. According to FBI testimony, Millay "expressed his disgust for the American army." With the help of hidden video cameras and “bugs”, he managed to fix his confessions that he wants to work for the Russian government and has information about many new items of American military equipment. So, he promised to report secret information about the work of the Warlock Duke mine system.

A month later, Millay handed over to the “Russian agent” for $ 3 a thousand information about the multi-purpose F-22 fighter and the indicated mine action system.

Military detained 28 October 2011 year. During the search, he managed to find instructions for using Russian telephone services and the Russian-language Internet, as well as national-socialist literature. It turned out that William Millay belonged to the organization of "white supermatists", preaching anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States.

At the court session, the prosecutors insisted that the military was willing to sacrifice his colleagues for the sake of cooperation with foreigners. At the same time, the defense emphasized that, suffering from psychological problems, he simply tried in such a way to draw attention to his person.
Before Alaska, Millay served in Iraq and South Korea.

        Yes, this is some dumb soldier. He was probably held there for a pig, he let’s write letters. Well, you have to be so stupid and not understand that letters are nowhere easier to track.
        To hell with such stupid Russian spies. Let the dumbass sit. And we need smart and competent agents.

    Do military cops have access to classified information? Okay, inadequate themselves - but why consider the whole world as such?

    Pure water stand

    As for the setup, you got excited. The mood of the People in USA, how to accurately describe it according to Dostoevsky - .. "tormented by the spirit." The people (as elsewhere)) have a very good attitude towards Russia, although this is not a central topic (like ours)) and when they remember Russia in the media, as a rule, in a negative way ....... And the common people say that We respect Russians .... then that "they are spreading rot Russia" on TV means that our authorities are afraid of you ... they sense the threat and We buy cartridges here not to fight the Russians)))))

    provocation to betrayal.

    but I agree with this, the guy somehow behaved inappropriately, it would be necessary to read at least a couple of spy novels, everything is described there .......

    Read books People, there you will find answers to all the question (and of course the website www / topwar.ru)))

      Vladimir, hi ! Actually, a "resident" can hardly be attributed to agents. Here's who he really is:
      American far-right extremists are usually divided into two categories. The first category - anti-government “patriotic” groups (they are also “white separatists”) are convinced that the modern American state rests on lies and misinformation; all their actions are aimed at exposing this lie. The second category - the so-called “white hatred groups” or “defenders of the white race” (they are also “white suprematists”) - act against various religious, racial or ethnic minorities living in the United States.

        Hello Victor ....
        Well, I agree with you .... Here confirmation came from Boston .... apparently (this is my opinion)) that the terrorist attack was carried out by local nationalists ... this is evidenced by the artisanal production of explosives, the low location of charges (that's why it is not enough victims)) and "activated the explosives with the help of telephones .... apparently they hoped to activate them gradually (sequentially)) but the connection was turned off at the first sign of a terrorist attack)) that is why the rest of the charges did not work ...

        Well, stupid Americans, let them just come to us, I can fight the Army with purely engineering knowledge))) since We do not allow such "mistakes" .......

    I wonder how the FBI representative introduced himself to this sucker? Type- "I am a Russian shpiyon, a little Ivan," and took a sip from the bubble?
    Yes, this sucker was bred, he did not hide his dislike for the army much, and he was "picked up" for distribution. Well, how could he think that it was somehow incomprehensible how a Russian spy found him !!!
    Well, a goof of pure water, and rightly so.

    "a figurehead acted as a Russian spy."
    In general, this is not fair, I would in my place also give the Russian intelligence a military secret of the United States, like any other. It's good that I live here and not there, real patriots are not respected there!

According to AFP, Millay was arrested red-handed during a joint FBI operation and counterintelligence - in the role of the Russian spy and military policeman were frontmen. And how else to rivet Russia-the smarter did not come up with kosher.

    And in my opinion pure idiocy. To catch the fear on the townsfolk, like you might have a snarling spy at your side, knock, be vigilant (and we will all have you soon) This is between the lines.

    And in the FBI or CIA, this "military policeman" did not try to call to "sell himself to the Russians" Or even though the poster on his chest "I want to become a Russian Spyen" and defile on the lawn in front of the White House. At worst, this "thin head" could have called CNN or FOX with the same offer.
