The SSU has liquidated the Russian agency's funding channel in Ukraine
During the special operation in the Kyiv region, an organized criminal group that acted in the interests of the aggressor's special services was neutralized. The attackers set up a mechanism for the covert transfer of money from Russia to the territory of our state through sanctioned payment systems.
According to operative data, the scheme was used by an enemy agency, receiving funds from its Russian curators for subversive activities against Ukraine.
During searches at the residences and offices of the group members, more than 13 million UAH were found.
It was established that the sabotage group included three residents of the Kyiv region. They created a network of anonymous Internet platforms through which they accepted "orders" for the purchase, sale, or exchange of electronic money from non-bank banned systems in Russia. These illegal transactions took place in their own currency exchange office.
Investigators have identified computer equipment and drafted documents with evidence of illegal activity.
Currently, the scheme's organizer has been informed about the suspicion under Part 1 of Art. 200 (illegal actions with documents for transfer, payment cards and other means of access to bank accounts, electronic money, and equipment for their production) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
A pre-trial investigation is underway to prosecute all those involved in the organization of illegal financial trafficking.
Measures to detect offenses were carried out by officers of the Cyber Security Department of the Security Service of Ukraine together with the National Police and under the procedural guidance of the Kyiv City Prosecutor's Office.
