The SSU finished investigating the case of the “mole” game, which was located in the Kharkiv Department of the Security Service
The Security Service of Ukraine completed the investigation and submitted an indictment to the court against a former employee of the coordination headquarters of the SBU Directorate in the Kharkiv region.
The attacker agreed to cooperate with the special services of the Russian Federation in exchange for a promise of security guarantees for him and his family in case of occupation of the region.
As part of cleaning up their own ranks, SSU counter-intelligence officers exposed the “mole” and collected indisputable evidence that allowed him to be charged under Part 2 of Art. 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (treason committed under martial law).
This article’s sanction provides punishment in the form of 15 years or life imprisonment.
It is proven that the man was recruited at the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation.
The position in the coordination headquarters of the SBU regional department allowed him to secretly collect and transmit to the representative of the main department of the General Staff of the Soviet Union intelligence on the deployment and movement of military equipment and personnel of the Defense Forces of Ukraine, as well as on the plans and activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Ukrainian law enforcement agencies and special services.
The occupiers used this information to avoid strikes by the Armed Forces and to plan sabotage, massive artillery, and targeted missile attacks on strategic city objects and defensive positions.
Thanks to the practical and coordinated actions of the Ukrainian special service, it was possible to document his illegal activities.
The traitor was detained while he was collecting data to prepare a missile attack on the administrative building of the SSU in the Kharkiv region.
The “mole” was exposed by employees of the Counterintelligence Department of the SSU and the Department of Internal Security and the Main Investigative Department of the SSU under the procedural guidance of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
