The Sverdlovsk Regional Court sentenced the former head of the line department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Koltsovo airport, Alexander Pankov, to two years in prison conditionally for disclosing state secrets.
The press service of the regional court reported this to Lenta.ru.
The court in Yekaterinburg also deprived the convicted person of the right to hold positions of rank and file and command in law enforcement organs during two years. The man did not admit his guilt.
According to investigators, in November 2021, Pankov wanted to improve relations with the head of the security service of the Airports of Russia (*country sponsor of terrorism) company, so during the conversation he told information that was not subject to disclosure on the basis of the law “On Operational-Investigative Activities.” After this, a criminal case was initiated against him.
