Russian military historian handed 12 year jail sentence in latest secretive ‘high treason’ trial – exact nature of crime unknown

Speaking to the media, Lukanin’s friend Nikolai Krivopalov said of his arrest: “As far as we know, it’s something like treason – that he sold some technologies to the Chinese. When he retired, he went to work in China – he was invited by Shenyang University. He worked in a laboratory there, researching high-voltage power supplies, the radio-technical disturbance of hard materials, and similar areas. But, as far as we know, this wasn’t related to military defense.”

In August the Russian Ministry of Defence responded to the appearance of sensitive information in the media by proposing to make all information about the country’s military defense confidential, if it is not already a state secret. In recent months several Russian academics have been arrested on suspicion of state treason, including three scientists from the Central Research Institute for Machine-building, Viktor Kudryavtsev, Roman Kovalev and Sergey Mereshchyakov. The FSB has also led investigations into Ivan Safronov, an adviser to the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin and a former journalist.
