An employee of national rail company Ukrzaliznytsia, who had allegedly collaborated with the FSB and adjusted the targeting of Russian missile strikes on Kyiv, has been detained by the SBU security service, the SBU reported on Telegram on Feb. 9. 

The traitor, who is said to have been recruited by the Russian Federation shortly after the start of the full-scale invasion, turned out to be a current official of the Regional Branch of the South-Western Railway.

The collaborator was reportedly promised a management position in an occupation administration, in the event of the area’s capture by Russian forces.

According to the SBU, the suspect was in constant contact with a personnel officer of the Russian FSB, who was interested in intelligence about the time and place of movement of military echelons with weapons and ammunition of the Armed Forces.

The detainee also tried to pass the coordinates of power infrastructure facilities in Kyiv to the enemy. The invaders planned to use these coordinates to prepare and carry out a series of targeted missile strikes on Ukrainian infrastructure.

The traitor was detained in the city of Chernihiv. Searches of the suspected traitor’s belongings uncovered smartphones containing correspondence with a representative of the Russian special services, the SBU said.

In accordance with Part 2 of Art. 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (treason committed under martial law), the suspected traitor faces 15 years or life in prison if found guilty.
