SBU detained a Russian informant who was investigating data for missile strikes and sabotage at the border

During a multi-stage special operation, the Security Service detained another enemy agent who was gathering intelligence on the Armed Forces’ positions and geolocations of critical infrastructure in the Chernihiv region.

He passed the information to his accomplice in the Middle East. The SBU counterintelligence recently detained him in the Chernivtsi region, where he arrived to prepare a series of explosions at Ukrzaliznytsia facilities.

It was established that both men were part of the Russian special services intelligence network, which was created to carry out subversive activities in western Ukraine.

After the detention of his “liaison”, the informant was given a new task – to reconnoiter the location of Ukrainian troops and strategic facilities near the border with Russia.

The enemy planned to use these data for missile strikes and preparation of sabotage in the occupied territories.

Currently, the detained informant has been informed about the suspicion under Part 1 of Art. 258-3 (participation in a terrorist group or terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. He was remanded in custody.

A pre-trial investigation is underway to identify and prosecute other persons involved in the crimes.

The special operation to expose the enemy agency was carried out by counterintelligence and SBU investigators in the Chernivtsi region under the procedural guidance of the prosecutor’s office.

Arestovich: “Russia plans to become on the defensive”

At the end of the summer, the Russian invaders will only defend themselves. The adviser to the head of the President’s Office thought about the reason.

Aleksey Arestovich said during a conversation with Russian human rights activist Mark Feygin that the Russians had scheduled a referendum for September 11th.

On September 11, a referendum was scheduled for the Russian invaders. However, it is impossible to hold it when you are advancing. By the end of August, the Russians must be on the defensive. You cannot fight, spending strategic reserves, reserves, efforts, the army on tactical achievements.

Defence Intelligence: Occupiers collect personal data about residents of Mariupol and try to recruit the evacuees

The Occupation administration of Mariupol is applying new methods of collecting information about the residents who left in the city. For this purpose, the reception of applications regarding the damaged (destroyed) property during hostilities was organized.

To do this, the citizens must apply to housing reconstruction or compensation if it is impossible to rebuild. Also, it is necessary to list all homeowners and citizens registered there and provide information about their current staying.

Suppose citizens registered in the flat have left for Ukraine-controlled territory or abroad (except for the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus). In that case, the persons who submitted applications are summoned for questioning. In the future, it is demanded to establish contact with the people who left and try to force them to cooperate with the occupiers.

The process of rebuilding housing has not yet begun. There have been no cases of monetary compensation for destroyed housing that cannot be rebuilt.

The occupiers are demolishing the destroyed buildings, but the affected residents are not given options to relocate to other housing. At the same time, those who have lost their homes are being offered to relocate to the homes of local residents who have been forced to leave through the hostilities.

The situation with water and gas supply in the city remains difficult.

Nuclear Threat: Occupiers want to drain cooling pools at Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant

In the occupied Energodar, Russian invaders are forcing employees of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant to drain the cooling pools.

This was reported by the press service of Energoatom.

“To relieve themselves of responsibility for committing acts of nuclear terrorism, the rashists resort to forceful coercion against Ukrainian nuclear scientists. Now they are using bullying and torture to force the workers of the plant’s hydro department to come up with a justification for the need to drain these pools for the management of the Zaporizhzhia NPP and the State Enterprise “NAEC” Energoatom “,” the statement says the message.

It is noted that the invaders severely beat the diver of the ZNPP hydro department Andrei Goncharuk, who was taken to the Energodar hospital with numerous injuries on June 29.

It will be recalled that the racists are preparing a severe provocation at the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhya NPP. In particular, they plan to accuse Ukrainian nuclear scientists of storing weapons on the station’s territory. To do this, several workers were detained and tortured to confess to them, more precisely – to state to themselves that in March, they allegedly dropped some weapons in a concrete bowl of cooling pools at the ZNPP: either explosives or shells.

Under this pretext, the occupiers insist on draining the cooling pools and checking its bowls, as well as stopping the pumps that supply water to the safety systems of power units. This could leave the units of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant without cooling and is a serious breach and could threaten nuclear safety. Then the occupiers can throw anything into the concrete bowl: explosives, unexploded shells, and other weapons. And then blame ZNPP employees or its defenders for this and make it a legal reason to invite the IAEA station and present these “facts”.

Beaches will not open in Odessa and the region this summer

In Odessa and the Odessa region, due to the war in the holiday season of 2022, the beaches will not be opened.

This was stated at a briefing by the speaker of the Main Directorate of the State Emergency Service in the Odessa region Marina Martynenko.

She noted that the department has recently received a lot of requests from citizens in connection with the recent statement by the mayor’s office of Odessa about the intention to create safe beach areas for vacationers.

“Not a single beach on the territory of the Odessa region will open. Currently, the coast is a line of defense, not a recreation area,” Martynenko stressed.

She noted that the region’s beaches are dangerous, mainly because enemy mines are periodically washed ashore in waves. According to her, this season, the only possible place for recreation is sanatoriums, recreation centers, etc., which have swimming pools.

“Staying on the coast and swimming in the Black Sea remains prohibited,” the speaker added that those who wish to come to the Odessa region to swim in the Black Sea should not do this.

In addition, she noted that this season it is forbidden to swim in other (inland) water bodies of the region (rivers, lakes), because before the start of the season, they did not pass the appropriate annual check.

In Odessa and the Odessa region, due to the military aggression of the Russian Federation, it is forbidden to swim in the Black Sea and stay near the water. After the storm, anti-ship anchor mines repeatedly nailed to the coast, some detonating. In particular, in early June in the Odessa region, a man was blown up by a mine while relaxing on the beach.

Poland fenced off Belarus with a five-meter fence

On Thursday, June 30, Poland announced the completion of the construction of a wall on the border with Belarus.

This was reported on the Twitter account of the Polish border service. A corresponding video from the construction site of the wall was also published.

“On January 25, the construction of a physical barrier on the Polish-Belarusian border began. Today, the work is coming to an end,” the report says.

The length of the fence is 186.25 km and its height is 5.5 meters. The wall is completely reinforced with barbed wire.

Earlier it was reported that the “wall” at the border will have 24 holes for large animals, 140 holes for small animals, as well as culverts.

The project’s total cost, including technical equipment, amount to PLN 1.6 billion (about $400 million).

According to Polish border guards, about 6,000 migrants have tried to illegally cross the Polish-Belarusian border since the beginning of this year.

Last year, Poland and the Baltic countries accused Belarus and the Russian Federation of hybrid aggression using an artificially created migration flow at the border.
