A court has extended the investigation into the transfer of secret information about the creation of part of a ground-based set of space systems to Iran by Ukrainian scientists.

This is stated in court materials, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

One of the scientists was detained in Kyiv on February 12 and charged with treason.

His detention has been extended until June 7 and the period of the investigation until August 12.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) detained a former employee of a research institute on suspicion of trying to transfer secret information to a foreign intelligence service in February.

The scientist was supposed to transfer secret materials relating to unique radio-emitting technologies in exchange for money.
