Estonia police detained two Estonians suspected of espionage for Russia, as Reuters reports.

“We are talking about treason. We have grounds to suspect that state secrets were deliberately passed on to Russian Intelligence Service GRU,” Inna Ombler, the Prosecutor, said in the statement.

It is supposed that the men have been passing foreign secret information to Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate.
