The SBU liquidated the Russian intelligence network that was scouting the positions of the Armed Forces near the Eastern Front


The security service continues to intensify its “clearing” of the front-line areas of eastern Ukraine from enemy agents and subversive intelligence groups. In the course of counter-intelligence measures, the activities of the Russian intelligence network, which collected intelligence on the deployment and movement of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Sloviansk, Kramatorsk, and Pokrovsky district of the Donetsk region, were stopped.

In addition, the perpetrators “reported” to the aggressors about the consequences of enemy missile and bomb attacks, the region’s artillery shelling, and the extent of the destruction of residential buildings and civil infrastructure facilities.

It was established that one of the “liaison” Russian agents was a representative of the occupation administration of the Russian Federation. He turned out to be an “official” of the so-called “supreme court of the DPR”, involved in the persecution and illegal imprisonment of Ukrainians in the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region.

According to the investigation, the hostile agent network included 6 local residents recruited by the Russian Federation’s special services after the start of its full-scale invasion.

To gather intelligence, the perpetrators independently conducted visual surveillance of the locations and movements of Ukrainian troops.

The obtained data were transmitted to the invaders through specially created Internet platforms in the form of coordinates on electronic maps with confirming materials of photo and video recording.

In addition, a pro-Kremlin agitator was detained during investigative operations in the Pokrovsky district. The attacker distributed propaganda publications on the Internet in which he justified the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

He used his own account in Russian social networks to “disperse” destructive content.

Currently, all detainees have been notified of suspicions of committing crimes against the state security of Ukraine. The issue of choosing a preventive measure in the form of detention is being resolved.

Comprehensive counter-sabotage measures are underway to locate and bring to justice, other enemy accomplices.

Operations to expose Russian agents were carried out by SBU employees of Donetsk, Luhansk and Ivano-Frankivsk regions under the procedural guidance of the prosecutor’s office.
