US: A former military man has admitted to leaking information to Russia

"Although he had to protect his colleagues and the national safety has chosen to abuse this trust by knowingly providing information to one of our most important opponentsSaid Steven D'Antuono, Assistant Director in charge of his office FBI in Washington.

According to court documents, Debbins worked with agents of a Russian service information from December 1996 to January 2011. In fact, he occasionally visited Russia to meet them.

Throughout the 13-year conspiracy, their ex-military USA gave the Russian agents, information in which he had access thanks to his office.

In 2008, following his retirement from the military, Debbins revealed information about his previous activities in the Special Forces.

The Russians also received names and information about ex-servicemen. This information was useful for Russia, as it helped agents decide who they could approach for a possible cooperation.
