In a scandal that risks souring traditionally good relations between the 
two countries, Russian security sources claimed that Air Force Colonel 
Vadim Leiderman, Israel's military attaché in Russia, had been caught 
"red-handed" receiving classified documents in Moscow last Thursday.

"This deals entirely with industrial espionage or rather his overly 
active work on behalf of certain Israeli companies on the Russian 
market," a Russian security source told the RIA Novosti news agency.

Col Leiderman was reportedly detained at a café where he was meeting a 
source from the Russian defence ministry and questioned for several 
hours before being told to leave the country within 48 hours.
