The SBU detained a Russian agent who “directed” kamikaze drone strikes in the south of Odessa
The security service exposed a Russian agent in Odessa. He scouted places of deployment and movement of the Defense Forces of Ukraine in the region’s south.
First of all, the attacker collected information about the locations of the bases of the defense units of the Armed Forces, law enforcement and law enforcement structures, and the number of personnel and military equipment.
In addition, he established the exact coordinates of roadblocks and critical infrastructure facilities, especially in heat and energy supply.
In the case of receiving intelligence, the enemy planned to use it to prepare for sabotage and carry out airstrikes, including cruise missiles and kamikaze drones.
According to the investigation, the traitor is a resident of the city of Reni who was recruited by the special services of the Russian Federation after the start of a full-scale invasion. He came to the attention of the aggressors because of his pro-Kremlin views, which he actively “advertised” among those around him.
In order to carry out enemy tasks, the Russian agent covertly observed the objects and movement routes of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard, photographing them.
He transmitted the received information to the occupiers through an anonymous Telegram channel in the form of a “photo report” and marks on an electronic map with a detailed description of “observations”.
As a result of the special operation, the Security Service employees detained the intruder trying to transfer classified information to the Russian Federation.
The law enforcement officers found a mobile phone with evidence of hidden correspondence with the Russian curator.
So far, SBU investigators have informed the enemy accomplice of the suspicion under Part 2 of Art. 111 (treason committed under martial law) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, and a preventive measure in the form of detention was chosen.
The SBU of the Odesa region carried out measures to expose the traitor under the procedural guidance of the Odessa regional prosecutor’s office.
