A Russian news site is reporting the arrest of two government officials for allegedly selling information that helped link two GRU officers to the poisoning of a turncoat Russian agent in England
“The first [suspect] supposedly sold information about foreign travel by [Alexander] Petrov, [Ruslan] Boshirov, and several others,” the source told Rosbalt,
Last month, the investigative site Bellingcat and the Russian news outlet, the Insider reported that “Petrov” and “Boshirov” are Alexander Mishkin and Anatoliy Chepiga. Their reporting cited “leaked databases.”
The arrests suggest that the leaked information was authentic.
