Counterintelligence SBU detained Russian agents who were trying to get into the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Two residents of the Vyshgorod district, who helped Russian troops during the invasion of the Kyiv region, turned out to be traitors. This reports the press service of the SBU .

The men actively participated in the so-called filtration measures, looking for Ukrainian patriots among the locals who resisted the invaders. They also tortured a young guy who helped the Ukrainian defenders identify equipment and locations of infidels.

After the liberation of the Kyiv region, the traitors remained on the territory of the region.

In order to reconnoiter and transmit information to the enemies about the routes of movement and locations of Western weapons, one of the traitors went to the neighboring region, where he signed a contract with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the other wanted to “enlist” from one of the territorial communities near Kiev. 

But the SBU officers carefully monitored every step of the enemy agents. Counterintelligence officers exposed their plans in a timely manner. 

During searches in places of the residence of the detainees, law enforcement officers found:

  • components for improvised explosive devices;
  • means of communication that hostile agents used to communicate with Russian “coordinators”. 

SBU investigators informed the detainees about suspicion of high treason committed under martial law.

The court chose a measure of restraint in the form of detention for the detainees. 

The links of traitors with representatives of the Russian special services are being checked.
