Typo or time-travel?

I was reading this article on Yahoo! News and came across the following paragraph, quoted verbatim:

He added that some Russian scientists who violated this ban have been punished — an apparent reference to Valentin Danilov, a physicist who was convicted of spying for China in 2014. Danilov pleaded innocent to the charges, saying the information on satellites he provided was not classified and that he had published some of it in scientific magazines.

Does the above paragraph contain a typo? Or will the event referred to take place a little more than seven years from now?
