Kyiv law enforcement has detained 313 potential members of 23 Russian reconnaissance-and-sabotage groups (RSGs), but other enemy agents could still be at large, head of Kyiv police Ivan Vyhovskyi told Ukrainian news agency Interfax-Ukraine on Aug. 15.

“Over the course of the war, 313 potential members of 23 (enemy) RSGs have been detained in Kyiv,” said Vyhovskyi.

“Not every instance could be verified, but we did refer these 313 individuals to the SBU (Ukraine’s security service), and they took it from there.”

He added that 10 task forces are working on tracking and uncovering Russian RSGs in the capital.
