Poland has detained and charged a man with spying for Russia, the country’s state broadcaster TVP reported Monday.
Polish internal security agents reportedly apprehended the man, identified only as Piotr Ś., in Warsaw on October 24th.
The arrest is the latest in a string of espionage-related cases. In Russia, a Polish national was sentenced to 14 years in prison in June, and in the following month an ex-government employee was sentenced to three years in Poland.
Piotr Ś. “is suspected of declaring his willingness to cooperate with Russian services against the Republic of Poland,” the country's internal security agency spokesman Stanisław Żaryn is quoted as saying.
Authorities were said to have found weapons and ammunition in the suspect’s apartment.
He has been placed in pretrial detention for three months, according to the reports.
