SBU neutralizes Russian Internet agency coordinated from Crimea by the member of “United Russia”
The SSU continues to take measures to neutralize the threats of information and subversive activities of the occupiers.
Another network of Russian Internet agents was liquidated during investigative and operational actions, and Russian curators were fixed. Among them is a member of the pro-Kremlin party of Russia in the temporarily occupied Crimea.
During the searches, the perpetrators seized communications equipment and computer equipment with evidence of criminal activity and a large amount of ammunition for firearms.
In the Dnipropetrovsk region:
SSU officers detained an enemy agent who was shaking up the internal political situation in the region. To do this, he spread calls on the Internet to support the occupiers and tried to impose on people the ideas of the so-called “Russian measure”. He distributed his provocative “posts” through social networks, including those banned in Ukraine.
According to the investigation, the perpetrator is a former employee of the regional police department who in 2014 refused to participate in the anti-terrorist operation in eastern Ukraine and resigned from the Internal Ministry.
Before the beginning of the full-scale aggression of the Russian Federation, he was looking for “like-minded people” whom he tried to involve in subversive activities against our state.
He coordinated his criminal activities with a member of the United Russia party’s “regional branch” in the temporarily occupied Crimea. In case of successful execution of enemy tasks and occupation of the territory of the Dnipropetrovsk region, the malefactor was promised a leading position in the “government structures” of the Russian Federation.
The detainee has now been informed of the suspicion of committing a crime and has been remanded in custody.
The Security Service of Ukraine has detained another member of the Russian agency. The attacker administered a network of Internet platforms created by the Russian secret services to carry out information sabotage against Ukraine.
In the “arsenal” of the enemy agent was a whole network of fake accounts in social networks and messengers, which could reach an “audience” of more than 350 thousand users.
Through Internet resources, he actively spread calls for support for the occupiers and justified the crimes of the racists.
The attacker agreed on the details of the “informatics” with a representative of the Russian secret services through the established communication channels. During their “correspondence”, the enemy agent expressed hope for establishing the Russian occupation administration in Kyiv.
In the Sumy region:
Security Service have exposed two hostile propagandists who publicly called for demonstrative punishment of the defenders of our state. They spread their “slogans” through social networks banned in Ukraine.
The subversive activities of a local woman who discredited the Armed Forces on the Internet and campaigned for the support of the occupiers were blocked.
Special forces exposed the traitor. The attacker voluntarily agreed to be appointed head of the so-called “people’s militia” in the temporarily occupied Berdyansk. He has now been informed about the suspicion of committing a crime.
Immediate actions are underway to identify and prosecute all those involved in crimes against Ukraine.
