The previous poster came across as saying that he took the information SO THAT he could give it to Russia and China. Maybe I misinterpreted his meaning, but that's how it came across.
Yes, I agree with you that no doubt he gave the Russians so information in exchange for a place to live, but I might be wrong on that. It doesn't really matter because the entire world can now read the information he absconded with.
A man without a country and without a passport is in desperate straights, and I would not blame him for doing what he must.
