A senior French military officer has been charged with “acting as an intelligence agency with a foreign power undermining the nation’s core interests,” a court source said Sunday.
The French army officer was stationed abroad, the source said in a report by Europe 1 Radio. According to the media report, the soldier was stationed on a NATO base in Italy and is suspected of espionage on behalf of Russia.
The French Defense Ministry previously said it was investigating a senior military officer for a “security breach”.
