Grazyna Wawryniuk, a spokeswoman for the Gdańsk city prosecutor, said he was accused of collecting and passing on to Russian intelligence details about Polish troops near the northeastern border of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad.

Prosecutors said the indictment was sent to a court in Gdansk on the Baltic coast last week.

It is unclear when the suspects will be tried, but it usually takes several months for trials to begin. If convicted, he could face 10 years in prison.

Poland’s normally tense relationship with Russia was frozen a year ago by Moscow’s attack on their mutual neighbor Ukraine. Poland supports Ukraine’s struggle at the diplomatic level, while also providing armaments and humanitarian aid. (Associated Press)
