MOSCOW - A Russian security agency says a Russian military officer has been convicted of passing missile secrets to the CIA and sentenced to 13 years in prison.

The Federal Security Service, the main successor to the KGB, said Lt.-Col. Vladimir Nesterets pleaded guilty to charges of passing classified data about missile tests to the CIA for money. It said Nesterets was convicted by a military court Friday.

The agency said that Nesterets worked as a senior engineer at Plesetsk launchpad in northwestern Russia. The facility run by the Russian military is used both for launching satellites into orbit and for testing missiles.

A terse statement issued by the FSB didn't say when Nesterets was arrested or give any further details.
