"An Izhevsk resident has been exposed, who has made attempts to initiate contact with a foreign diplomatic mission to provide information about secret developments, related to the military space sphere, on a paid-for basis," the FSB said in a press release.
"The person involved aimed at enriching himself through selling secret information to the foreign side," the FSB specified.
According to the FSB, the man intended to create an organization aimed at obtaining military secrets, on the territory of the Udmurt Republic.
It has been revealed that he used to have access to classified information.
As the man has not committed high treason, no criminal case has been launched. Instead, he has received an "official warning about the inadmissibility of creating conditions for committing crimes."
Apart from that, the Votkinsk Machine Building Plant is located in the Udmurt Republic. Strategic missiles Topol-M and Yars, Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile, and Iskander-M ballistic missile are produced there.
