SBU Counter Intelligence Informs about Stepping Up Russia's FSB Agents, Gathering Restricted Data in Military Sphere

SBU Counter Intelligence exposed two Ukrainian citizens recruited by Russia’s FSB. The suspects were collecting restricted data on Ukrainian Army’s readiness and combat support.

SBU investigators established that the agents were tasked to obtain secret documents on effectiveness of new samples of weapons and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, perspectives of equipping and rearmament of the Ukrainian Army units. To implement the tasks, the FSB assets tried to recruit a Ukrainian serviceman.

At present time, procedural measures are being taken against the exposed Russian agents under Part 1 of Art. 111 (treason) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
