Former Army Green Beret Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins has been charged with spying for Russia.

If convicted, he faces life in prison.

Debbins was arrested for allegedly releasing details about the chemical and Special Forces unit he was a part of, before and while serving in the US Army.

Mr. Debbins knowingly provided information to self-proclaimed members of Russia's Intelligence Service, the GRU.

James A.
