The security service continues to intensify its “clearing” frontline areas of eastern Ukraine against enemy agents and subversive intelligence groups. During counter-intelligence measures, the activities of the Russian intelligence network, which collected intelligence on the deployment and movements of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and in the Pokrovsky district of the Donetsk region, were arrested.
In addition, the perpetrators “reported” to the aggressors the consequences of enemy missile and bomb attacks, artillery shelling of the area, and the extent of the destruction of residential buildings and civilian infrastructure.
It was established that one of the Russian “liaison” agents was a representative of the occupation administration of the Russian Federation. He turned out to be an “official” of the so-called “Supreme Court of the DPR”, involved in the persecution and illegal imprisonment of Ukrainians in the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region.
According to the investigation, the network of hostile agents included 6 local residents recruited by the special services of the Russian Federation after the start of its full-scale invasion.
To gather intelligence, the authors independently conducted visual surveillance of Ukrainian troop locations and movements.
The data obtained was transmitted to the invaders through specially created Internet platforms in the form of coordinates on electronic maps with photo and video recording confirmation documents.
Also, a pro-Kremlin agitator was arrested during investigative operations in the Pokrovsky district. The aggressor posted propaganda publications on the Internet in which he justified the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
He used his own Russian social media account to “scatter” destructive content.
Currently, all detainees have been informed of suspicions of committing crimes against Ukrainian state security. The question of the choice of a preventive measure in the form of detention is being resolved.
Comprehensive counter-sabotage measures are underway to locate and bring to justice other complicit enemies.
Operations aimed at exposing Russian agents were carried out by SBU employees of the Donetsk, Luhansk and Ivano-Frankivsk regions under the procedural direction of the prosecutor’s office.
