The SSU neutralized a network of Internet agitators who called for the seizure of power and support for Russia
The Security Service neutralized an interregional network of pro-Kremlin Internet agitators during investigative and operational actions in the Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Lviv, Mykolaiv, and Cherkasy regions.
The attackers publicly justified Russian armed aggression and called for the seizure of state power in Ukraine. To carry out information sabotage, they created dozens of specialized Telegram channels and profiles on social networks. Destructive content was “picked up” from propaganda Internet resources of the aggressor country.
During searches of the accused’s residence places, law enforcement officers found computer equipment and mobile phones with evidence of information-subversive activities. Based on the collected evidence, SSU investigators informed nine participants of the “network” that they were suspected of committing crimes against the state security of Ukraine.
In the Dnipropetrovsk region:
The activity of four enemy agitators, who discredited the units of the Defense Forces via the Internet, was blocked.
At the same time, in the comments under their own “publications”, they supported the actions of the Russian aggressors. They justified their war crimes, particularly missile strikes on Ukrainian cities.
In the Mykolaiv region:
The head of a local public organization was detained for publicly calling for a violent seizure of power in the region.
It was established that the attacker was a supporter of the pro-Kremlin movement “narodovlastie” and tried to destabilize the internal political situation in the south of Ukraine through his actions.
In the Zaporizhzhia region:
Two more enemy accomplices were exposed. First – he urged his acquaintances who moved to Lviv not to trust the Ukrainian authorities and return to Zaporizhzhia to support the Russian occupiers.
The next accomplice of the aggressor is a resident of the regional center. In communication with her acquaintances, she justified the Russian Federation’s full-scale invasion and supported the region’s ” accession ” to Russia.
Another hostile propagandist was found, who repeatedly distributed posts in support of the Russians.
She placed her own posts, photos with hostile symbols, and reposts from the pro-Kremlin public on the Odnoklassniki social network.
The special service exposed a local resident who popularized the ideas of the “Russian peace” and the occupation regime in the temporarily occupied areas in the east and south of Ukraine on the Internet.
