    The leaks concern the breakthrough Avangard and Kinzhal hypersonic missile technology that was passed on to NATO operatives. The West has been reluctant to accept that the Russian Federation has developed state-of-the-art hypersonic weapons technology.

    The report further details what is described as proof of the new missile technology that 74 year old Dr. Viktor Kudryavtsev, an aerodynamics and hydrodynamics expert, leaked, with a brief film clip of a missile launch and a strike on a target in the Sea of Okhostsk.

    Kudryavtsev is presently being held in the Lefortovo detention facility while his leaks are further being investigated.

    A guest on the program, Igor Korotchenko, who works as Director in Chief of the National Defense magazine in Russia, described the process that the FSB follows when pursuing an investigation, and noted that the information of an arrest is released only after all investigation has conclusively shown an answer.

    In detailing the process that the FSB agencies follow, Korotchenko pointed out that the fact that an arrest has been made “means there is enough proof for a case against this person. The materials (collected during the investigation) make up the body of evidence that will be used during the trial”.

    He added: “It is important to understand that when any espionage is realised, the authorities must verify that they have a sustainable evidential basis for the necessary court verdict. This being said, in this case, the person’s age or status are irrelevant.”

    He said the scientist probably has a top-secret security clearance. “This is one of the highest security clearance levels with access to top-secret classified information. We will soon learn whether this man leaked this information deliberately or accidentally. Either way, he did pass this information to one of the Western intelligence agencies. I will dare to assume which of them are the most eager to obtain information about Russia’s sophisticated weapons systems.”

    He said that the American CIA and the British SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) are the two most active agencies in the West, often working together.

    It should be noted that in Russia, like the United States, there are “liberal-minded” people who hold the  “court of public opinion” with unproven stories and accusations.
