Russian investigators believe that Ivan Safronov, the former newspaper reporter accused of spying for Czech intelligence, transferred secret data to Prague using his home computer. That’s according to Safronov’s lawyer, Ivan Pavlov, who has regularly provided the public with updates as the case has progressed. He says that investigators claim the adviser to Dmitry Rogozin, the head of national space agency Roscosmos, transferred secret information to the Czechs using VeraCrypt encryption software. They also allege that fragments of the historian Roy Medvedev’s book ‘Post-Soviet Russia: A Journey Through the Yeltsin Era’ were used as passwords.
