The Zyuzinsky court of Moscow has sentenced 14 defendants in the case about theft of property of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Department of City Property of Moscow to terms form 2,5 to 8 years. Sergey Maslovsky was sentenced to eight years of the maximum security penal colony and a fine of 200 thousand rubles.

Through these statements, the malefactors managed to privatize 14 apartments owned by government agencies.

The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
