Six people recently detained in Poland cooperated with Russia’s FSB and aimed to disrupt the flow of Western weapons to Ukraine, Polish Minister of Internal Affairs, Mariusz Kaminski, announced on March 16, as reported by CNN.

Kaminski stated the suspects conducted intelligence activities in Poland and prepared "acts of sabotage at the request of Russian intelligence."

“Evidence shows that the group monitored the railway routes,” said Kaminski.

“Its tasks included recognizing, monitoring, and documenting transports with weapons delivered to Ukraine.”

Kaminsky specified that the prosecutor's office charged six individuals with espionage and participation in an organized criminal group. Trials are ongoing for three other detainees, he added.

“The suspects also had to prepare for acts of sabotage aimed at paralyzing the supply of equipment, weapons, and assistance to Ukraine,” he added.

On March 15, Polish media reported that six people were detained in Poland, suspected of spying for the Russian special services. Journalists said that the group was preparing acts of sabotage on Polish territory and monitored the transfer of Western weapons to Ukraine.

Later, Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak confirmed that Poland has dismantled a Russian spy ring operating in the country.
