Polish officer sentenced to six years in prison for spying for Russia

On the 26th of April, Zbigniew Yu., a lieutenant-colonel in the Polish Army, was sentenced to six years in prison by the Warsaw Military Court. He was charged with spying for Russia.

The Polish media reported that $4,300 and a telephone were confiscated. This was alleged to be his payment for the illegal activities. Yu. then made a deal with the prosecution and plead guilty to the charges.

According to unofficial information, Yu. also gave the investigators the names of Polish servicemen who may have been recruited to spy.

It was previously reported that Mateusz Piskorski, who is the leader of Zmiana, a Polish pro-Russian party, was also arrested. He is suspected of spying for a foreign country. Radio Poland has reported that he is spying for China, but authorities are also investigating his relations with Russia.
