Russia has intensified the activities of its special services in the Eastern European countries to disrupt the supply of weapons to Ukraine, Ukraine's Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense reported on July 16.

According to the intelligence, Russian agents were tasked with identifying and monitoring the routes through which weapons are supplied to Ukraine.

To determine the delivery schemes and the number of weapons transferred to Kyiv by the partner countries, Russian military attachés in the European Union countries were ordered through closed communication channels to intensify the recruitment of police officers and citizens involved in the transportation of weapons.

It is also noted that Russian special services are trying to involve representatives of local communities and pro-Russian activists in regions bordering Ukraine.

"Having received proposals for cooperation from the Russians, the Europeans immediately turn to the police and security agencies," the Ukrainian intelligence said.

Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion, Western countries have been providing Ukraine with military aid, including the supply of heavy weapons needed to fight against the invaders.

The Ukrainian military also uses U.S.-supplied HIMARS multiple-launch rocket systems to hit Russian ammo depots, which changes the course of the war.
