Ukraine’s SBU security service has detained a Russian agent and collaborator in Kharkiv, who was responsible for identifying targets and correcting Russian missile strikes at the city’s military and civilian infrastructure, SBU said in a Facebook post on Nov. 23.
The agent turned out to be a resident of Donbas, who was recruited by Moscow’s proxies at the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
“Following the instructions from the enemy, he moved to Kharkiv to collect information on the location of Ukrainian units, military, and critical infrastructure facilities,” the message said.
“To this end, he went to the city, where he carried out photo and video recording of potential targets and marked their locations on electronic maps. He then passed on this information through his contacts.”
The culprit now faces up to 15 years in prison.
