On the first days of Russia’s full-scale invasion, Ukraine’s allies wondered where the country’s intelligence was receiving “real-time” data from, the deputy chief of Ukraine’s HUR intelligence, Vadym Skibitsky, said in an interview with the German newspaper Bild on Dec. 18.

“We received so many tips. Almost every Ukrainian who had a phone reported where the Russian military was deployed at the time,” Skibitskyy said.

According to him, “our allies were asking us with surprise whether we were getting our data about the enemy in real time, because in each village we could show exactly how many Russian soldiers were in which house.”
