Former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan has been stuck in a Russian jail for five years, accused of being a spy, something his family and the U.S. government say isn’t true. Whelan, 52, used to work in law enforcement and later in the car parts industry. He disappeared during a trip to Moscow in 2018 and ended up facing a secret trial, resulting in a 16-year prison sentence.
