Estonia jails three Russian spies

Late last week, Tartu county court found three men guilty of cooperation with Russian special services and committing crimes against the state of Estonia, reported ERR Tuesday. 

Two of the spies - Maksim Gruzdev and Aleksandr Rudnev - are Estonian citizens, while one Pavel Romanov's citizenship was not revealed.

According to ERR's Russian-language service, the three were smugglers with no access to state-level secrets.

Harrys Puusepp, press secretary of the Estonian Internal Security Service (KAPO), told ERR that the criminals "Managed to do some damage, though not enough to pose a danger to the constitutional order."
