A Russian agent was detained in the course of a multi-stage special operation in Lviv Oblast, the Security Service of Ukraine reported on Jan. 2.

The criminal was a resident of Donbas, who moved to the west of Ukraine under the guise of an "internally displaced person".

At the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, he collected intelligence about the Defense Forces on the Lyman section of the front, and, having moved to Lviv Oblast, settled near an energy infrastructure facility in the region.
