In Zaporozhye, where the SBU recently detained a Russian informant who was monitoring the Armed Forces of Ukraine using hidden webcams on the roads, an FSB “mole” was uncovered – a man got a job in the Zaporozhye OVA to “leak” information about the Ukrainian Defense Forces in the south of the country.
According to the Security Service, while in the position of chief specialist of the OVA cybersecurity department, he tried to secretly obtain secret information about the deployment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and defense procurements in the region. To do this, the Russian “crit” tried to use access to the servers of a government agency, but he was promptly exposed and detained.
The enemy informant turned out to be a resident of Zaporozhye, a radio engineer by training. Before joining the regional military administration, he worked at one of the local enterprises that carried out maintenance of military equipment of the Defense Forces.
It was established that in September of this year he, on his own initiative, offered his assistance to the occupiers in the war against Ukraine. He wrote about this in one of the Russian chat bots created to collect information about the movement of Ukrainian Armed Forces units in front-line regions. A staff member of the FSB contacted him remotely and recruited him to cooperate. On instructions from the Russian intelligence service, the attacker secretly filmed the plant’s production facilities and the military equipment located there on his phone. He also tried to find repair bases and other logistics centers for Ukrainian defenders on the territory of the regional center.
During the searches, the detainee’s mobile phone was confiscated red-handed in favor of Russia. He was informed of the suspicion. The attacker is in custody, the sanction of the article provides for up to 12 years in prison.
Let us recall that in the Odessa region, the SBU exposed an enemy informant who, in order to disguise intelligence and subversive activities, got a job as a driver in a local cell of an international charitable organization.

I am currently working as a news website author at Daily News Hack. I mostly cover trending news and have been doing so for quite some time now. I have always had a keen interest in current affairs and the world around me, which is what led me to my current job.
I firmly believe that the best way to learn about something is by doing it yourself and that is why I love my job so much. It allows me to be constantly learning about new things and then sharing that knowledge with others.
I am also a big believer in the power of networking and building relationships. I think that LinkedIn is a great platform for connecting with like-minded people from all over the world.
