MOSCOW — Relatives of Igor Sutyagin, a researcher convicted in Russia of espionage, say he has told them he will be released and sent to Britain in a swap for Russians recently arrested for spying in the United States.

Sutyagin's brother Dmitry told reporters Wednesday that his brother said he was told of the arrangement by Russian officials who met him Tuesday at a prison in Arkhangelsk.

Sutyagin, a Russian, said he was made to sign a confession, although he maintains his innocence and does not want to leave Russia, his brother said.

He was arrested in 1999 and convicted in 2004 on charges of passing information on nuclear submarines and missile-warning systems to a British company that investigators claimed was a CIA cover.
