A Ukrainian court sentenced a Russian-hired agent to 12 years and six months of imprisonment for collecting information on the deployment and movement of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Donetsk sector, Ukraine’s SBU security service reported on Dec. 16.
The agent was specifically tasked with "hunting" for U.S.-provided HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems, and shared the exact coordinates of critical infrastructure facilities in the region with Russian troops, according to law enforcement.
"The collaborator turned out to be a local resident who, after the beginning of the full-scale invasion, kept in touch with the occupiers and sought to help in the war against Ukraine,” said SBU spokesperson Artem Dekhtyarenko.
“He passed on the collected information through a liaison officer. He was a member of the Russian-controlled terrorist organization ‘DPR.’”
