(Bloomberg) -- Prosecutors in Moscow suspect that U.S. intelligence compromised one of Russia’s most senior cybersecurity officials and have charged him and at least two others with treason in the case, according to a lawyer involved.

The three were detained in December and include Sergei Mikhailov, who was a top official in the information-security division of the Federal Security Service, the main successor to the KGB, and Dmitry Dokuchaev, a member of his staff. The third suspect to be named publicly is Ruslan Stoyanov, a manager at Kaspersky Lab, a Russian cybersecurity company.
