RIA News cites the information management message of the FSB of the Russian Federation:
Mardaleyshvili, on the instructions of the Estonian Interior Ministry’s security police department (Estonian special services carry this name), purposefully collected secret military information about the Russian Armed Forces, the leakage of which abroad could damage the state’s defense.
It is reported on the initiation of a criminal case with a detainee.
We will remind that earlier another Estonian citizen Eston Kokhver was detained on the territory of Russia. He was a member of the security police of the Baltic state and was arrested on charges of espionage, illegal possession weapons and smuggling. Pskov Regional Court Kokhver was sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment with a sentence served in a strict regime colony.
Attention is drawn to the fact that the lawyer of Eston Kohvera was the notorious Mark Feigin, who today defends Nadezhda Savchenko. Then Feigin said that his client went to a deal with the investigation, recognizing the fact of espionage in favor of Estonia. After some time, Kohvera was exchanged for Alexey Dressen, who was found guilty in Estonia of transferring secret information to Russia.
Since autumn 2015, Eston Kokhver has continued his work in the Estonian security police.
