"Offenders who tried to sell classified design documents in the field of military shipbuilding to representatives of one of the Asian countries were exposed. Information with limited access was estimated at $2 million. It was established that several former and current employees of one of the domestic defense enterprises were involved in illegal activities," the SBU press center reports.
