MOSCOW – The Russian state prosecutor’s office said on Sunday that anyone providing financial or other assistance to a foreign state or international organisation aimed against Russia’s security could be convicted of treason, facing a maximum sentence of 20 years.

“Each fact of providing financial or other assistance…will be legally evaluated,” it said in a statement on the fourth day of what Russia describes as a military operation in Ukraine.
