He was found guilty of violating section 108 (1) of the Criminal Code of Denmark.

The name of the convict is not disclosed, the court session was held behind closed doors. It is known that he is a chemical engineer by training, received a doctorate in the Danish Technical University. The Russian has been in custody since July 2020.

Before his arrest, the Russian-born scientist, who had lived in Denmark for 12 years, worked for SetEnergy in Aalborg. The company develops environmentally friendly fuel cells.

  • “In Denmark, a 36-year-old Russian man was sentenced to three years in prison for spying for Russia.”

    Will the West never learn? Letting any Russian near to any sensitive material is asking for trouble. These companies deserve everything they get by hiring Russian spies. I expect some Danish guy stupid enough to be in Muscovy will get arrested for spying on some fabricated evidence.

    • A putinoid skank; Maria Butina, was sent to the US to penetrate Obama’s Dems, then the GOP, the NRA, then the Trump campaign. She also succeeded in establishing a back channel for coms between Trump’s WH and the kremlin.
      She made total fools out of liberals, Republicans and Trumpoids. She mainly achieved what she did by sucking and fucking. She now works for RaT. (Who else ?)
      For that, she got 18 months. So this relatively minor Danish case is not so pathetic as what happened to Butina.
