A sixth suspected member of a Russian spy network based in Britain is suspected and will be charged with espionage, Britain's Crown Prosecution Service said on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

The suspect Tihomir Ivanchev, 38 years old Bulgarian, will be charged with "conspiracy to obtain, collect, record, publish or transmit documents or information" that could be useful for purposes harmful to the security and interests of the state. He will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London on Wednesday.

Previously, the British Crown Prosecution Service brought charges against five more Bulgarian citizens for belonging to an alleged Russian spy network in the period from August 2020 to February 2023. These are 46-year-old Orlin Rusev, 42-year-old Biser Dzhambazov, 32-year-old Katrin Ivanova , 32-year-old Ivan Stoyanov and 29-year-old Vanya Gaberova.

These Bulgarians lived in London and Norfolk and were arrested in February 2023 by the counter-terrorism unit of the London police. They are due to stand trial in London in October.
