The founder and CEO of Russia’s Group-IB digital security firm has been detained by authorities and charged with high treason, reportedly for passing on secret information to foreign spies in yet another cloak and dagger drama.
On Wednesday, a Moscow court ordered that Ilya Sachkov can be detained in custody for two months while prosecutors prepare a case against him. Details related to the arrest of the 35-year-old entrepreneur are classified, with the court saying only that he has been held over allegations of high treason.
However, an anonymous security source told TASS that Sachkov is suspected of passing on secret information to foreign intelligence services. The tech firm chief is said to have denied all the accusations.
