Counter-intelligence of the Security Service neutralized the active agent network of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces (better known as the game) as a result of a multi-stage special operation in the Dnipro region.

During the operation, 7 Russian agents were detained. The head of the Security Service of Ukraine, Vasyl Malyuk announced this.

"The SSU conducted another important special operation to expose and detain enemy agents. This is the result of the painstaking work of our counter-intelligence officers. We are systematically training everyone who helps point Russian missiles at our cities. Every gunner or adjuster should realize that his actions will not go unpunished. The security service and the entire Ukrainian people will not forgive such crimes. Agents of the Russian Federation will have to fully answer for what they have done," emphasized Vasyl Malyuk.

According to available data, the detainees gave the Russians the coordinates of critical infrastructure facilities, including energy-generating enterprises.

The occupiers used this information to prepare and carry out rocket attacks on the city. And after the attacks, the agents visited the "arrival" sites to determine the effects of the air strikes and re-adjust them.

Information about the possible involvement of the detainees in the Russian missile attack on a residential building in Dnipro on January 14 of this year is currently being checked.

In addition, Russian agents collected intelligence on the basing and movement of units of the Defense Forces in the region, trying to identify the positions of the Ukrainian air defense system.

They passed all the collected information to the game's representatives through the group's resident.

He turned out to be a citizen of the Russian Federation, a former resident of Dnipro, who in 2014 created a local pro-Kremlin public organization. Its representatives advocated the creation of the so-called "south-eastern Ukrainian republic" under the control of the aggressor country.

Later, the attacker fled to Russia, where the game's HR staff recruited him. According to their task, he created his own agency from his "ideological" like-minded compatriots.

Previously, the group was in "standby mode", and in October 2022 it began active reconnaissance and subversive activities against Ukraine.

For communication, agents used anonymous messengers, and locations were transmitted in digital coordinates with photo materials.

The special operation to expose the perpetrators was carried out by the SSU staff of the Dnipropetrovsk region under the coordination of the Counter-intelligence Department of the Security Service and the procedural leadership of the Dnipropetrovsk regional prosecutor's office.
