The employee of the technology company was arrested in Sweden under on suspicion of espionage for Russia, as the press office of Sweden’s Security Service reported.
“This individual is suspected of having been recruited as an agent by a Russian intelligence officer who was working under diplomatic cover in Sweden," the message says.
It is noted that the arrested worked in a high-tech sector in Sweden.

“The Service has been carrying out intensive intelligence and investigative work in this matter for a long time: it is suspected that the criminal activities have been going on since 2017,” the message reads.
Daniel Stenling, Head of Counter-Intelligence at the Swedish Security Service, commented on this:

“The threat to Sweden is greater than it has been for several years. Technological developments have made state actors’ efforts to gather intelligence in cyberspace more sophisticated. At the same time, the more traditional intelligence-gathering approach, using recruited agents to collect information, is still being used. This combination enables state actors to broaden and deepen their collection of classified information”.
