"The Moscow City Court is considering a criminal case against Vorobyov Alexander Vladimirovich," the court's press service quotes TASS.

It is noted that the meetings are held behind closed doors, as the case contains materials with a "top secret" stamp.

The representative of the press service of the Moscow City Court said that Vorobyov's case is being heard in a general manner.

On September 4, 2019, the Lefortovo Court of Moscow extended the arrest of Alexander Vorobyov by three months.

Alexander Vorobyov is accused of providing a foreign state with information constituting a state secret, which became known to him during his service.
