The Moscow City Court has sentenced Group-IB founder Ilya Sachkov to 14 years in prison after finding him guilty of high treason, a TASS correspondent reported from the courtroom.
Sachkov has been in custody since September 2021. According to the prosecution, in 2011 he handed over classified information to foreign intelligence thus causing reputational damage to Russia’s national interests. He did not admit his guilt. Hearings were held behind closed doors because they contained classified materials.
