    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The UK embassy in Russia declined to comment on the reports about a Russian national, who was detained on suspicion of sharing classified information with the United Kingdom.

    The UK Foreign Office never comments on anything related to intelligence-gathering operations, the embassy said.

    A source said on Thursday that Dmitry Fedotkin was detained on suspicion that, while working for the Russian flag carrier Aeroflot in the United Kingdom, he was sharing secret information with UK special services.
