The Security Service of Ukraine prevented plans by the FSB to use relatives of the Ukrainian military to exacerbate the socio-political situation in Kyiv, Zhytomyr, and Poltava regions on the eve of Ukraine's Independence Day.

According to the plan of the special enemy services, the "demonstrators" were to criticize and condemn Ukraine's military command, and the organizers planned to record it on video. Thus, they sought to create the "necessary content" for Russian propagandists, and they, in turn, spread it as much as possible through the Internet and the mass media controlled by them.

As the SBU established, the organizers of the pseudo-actions were supposed to be former members of the NGO "Journalists of Stremousov". They have a similar experience, as they held a number of custom rallies in Kyiv at the beginning of 2022.

Currently, their leader Kyrylo Stremousov performs the duties of the "deputy of the occupation military-civilian administration" in Kherson. And according to SBU materials, even at the beginning of the full-scale invasion, he was informed of suspicion of treason.

According to the available information, the FSB thought out "actions" in advance. It was established that the enemy's special services employees made new contact with the coordinators of the Zhytomyr and Poltava branches of the Stremousov movement in May 2022.

Later, they were given the task of organizing mass "protest" actions near the regional military commissariats with the participation of mothers of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

However, thanks to the intervention of the SBU, Stremousov's former henchmen refused to perform FSB tasks.

The Security Service's systematic work to prevent Russian special services' influence on the socio-political situation in Ukraine continues.
