The Moscow city court has left under guards of the employee of the Institute Victor Kudryavtsev, accused of treason, the correspondent of RIA Novosti news from the courtroom.

«The decision to extend the measure of restraint in form of detention remain unchanged» — announced the decision of the judge. Thus, it dismissed the appeal of the lawyer Evgeny Smirnov, who asked to release the scientist.

The meeting was held behind closed doors because the case is marked «classified».

The defendant’s lawyer had earlier said that the investigation imposes on the scholar passing classified information to the Belgian Institute of hydrodynamics. According to «Kommersant», we are talking about information on the Russian hypersonic research. Guilt Kudryavtsev does not recognize.

According to the defender, Kudryavtsev has «a whole bunch of diseases» and such a power, just as a prison can lead to 74-year-old scientist to death.
