A man has been arrested in Britain on suspicion of spying for Vladimir Putin, it has been reported.

The man, in his 40s, was arrested under the Official Secrets Act at London’s Gatwick Airport on Monday and remains in police custody.

Met police confirmed he had been detained under Section 1 of the Act – which refers to espionage and sabotage “useful to a hostile state”.

A source told The Sun: “The suspect is believed to have been spying in the UK on behalf of the Putin regime.

“He was observed and arrested when he arrived at Gatwick to try to fly out of the country.”






Met Police confirmed he had been detained under Section 1 of the Act – which refers to espionage and sabotage “useful to an enemy state”.

A Met Police spokesman told the Mirror: “We can confirm that on Monday, March 13, officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command

“He was taken to a London police station where he is currently being held in police custody.”

It comes after Russia warned that Europe will be wiped off the map if western nations supply Ukraine with nuclear-capable missiles.

The threat comes after Poland’s former foreign minister hinted that those in league against Russia’s aggression in Ukraine may have legal grounds for providing the deadly weapons.

Radoslaw Sikorski claimed that Vladimir Putin violated the 1994 Budapest memorandum on security guarantees and therefore western nations could legitimately supply the missiles to “enable Ukraine to defend its independence”.

Following Ukraine’s declaration of independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the government agreed to destroy its nuclear arsenal and join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Although Russia joined the NPT at the time, Mr Sikorski said Putin violated the terms of the deal by invading Ukraine.

Russia hit back with poison at Mr Sikorski’s remarks. Vyacheslav Volodin, the head of the State Duma, wrote on his Telegram account that Poland — along with the rest of Europe — “would cease to exist” if Russia were threatened.

He said: “With such MEPs, Europeans will have much more serious problems than they have today (refugees, record inflation, energy crisis).

“Sikorski provokes a nuclear conflict in the center of Europe. He thinks neither about the future of Ukraine nor about the future of Poland.

“If his proposals are fulfilled, these countries, like Europe, will cease to exist.

“Sikorski and Co. are the reason why Ukraine must not only be liberated from Nazi ideology, but also demilitarized in order to secure the country’s nuclear-weapon-free status.”
