A Russian man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison after he was caught trying to pass classified information about the country’s Northern Fleet to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Yuri Etsenko, who worked for an organization that repaired radio-electronic systems on warships, pleaded guilty to high treason and will serve his sentence in a high-security prison.

From 2015 to 2017, Eshchenko carefully copied documents on the weapons systems used in the Northern Fleet, according to the Federal Security Service (FSB).

In early 2019, he had contacts with US officials. He was arrested later that year, in July. The exact details of what Estchenko copied have not been made public.

Based in Severomorsk, a closed city on the northern tip of Russia’s Kola Peninsula, the Northern Fleet is responsible for operations and defense along the Arctic coast, including the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea.

The company was founded by a member of a former member of the US Delta Force who knew the Kurdish leadership — the Syrian Democratic Forces — through the security company he founded, TigerSwan. In April last year, the US Treasury granted a rare license allowing DCE to sidestep American sanctions on Syria's oil sector. Question marks have been raised over how this has happened. The founders of DCE are said to have donated to Republican candidates but they have denied using political influence to secure the license. Speaking about DCE's work […]</div>
