Russia claims it has detained Chinese spy

Russia’s security service said it had detained a suspected Chinese spy late last year who tried to gain access to sensitive missile technology, according to reports.

It was not clear why news of the detention was released only now, less than a week before Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visits China as part of efforts to strengthen ties with Beijing. Chinese citizen Tun Sheniyun had been accused of trying to buy sensitive material on a Russian anti-aircraft missile system while working under the guise of a translator for official delegations, the state-run RIA news agency said.

“The investigation revealed that a Chinese citizen … was working as a translator for official delegations and was attempting to gather … documents on the anti-aircraft S-300 missile system from Russian citizens for money,” Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) told RIA.

The prosecutor has filed charges with a Moscow city court, the FSB said.
