Florence parley

French defense minister Florence Parly confirmed on August 30 that the French government is investigating a senior officer suspected of providing sensitive NATO military secrets to Russia.

According to the guardian on the 30th, the officer, who can speak Russian, is stationed in NATO and works at the Naples base in Italy. He was previously seen in Italy with a man who was confirmed to be an agent of the Russian military intelligence agency Gru.

What I can only reveal at the moment is that a senior official is facing legal proceedings for providing confidential information. But she didnt elaborate more. According to radio one Europe, the officer was arrested by the French Intelligence Agency General Department of Homeland Security (DGSI) when he was preparing to go to Italy after his holiday in France. He is currently being held in a prison in Paris. A judicial source said that the official was arrested and prosecuted for providing confidential information to foreign forces for endangering the basic interests of the country.
