Ukraine’s SBU security service has identified six more members of Russia’s FSB agent network who were collecting intelligence on the Ukrainian army and the condition of critical infrastructure following Russian missile strikes, according to a March 9 SBU report.

"Six Russian agents from this network were detained by the SBU in late February," the statement said.

The agency said three more FSB informers have been detained. They secretly tried to collect classified information near Ukrainian military units.

The SBU said the suspects include a resident of Kyiv Oblast who tried to identify the backup command post of the Kyiv territorial center for recruitment and social support. The suspect received instructions from the FSB to use a cover story to infiltrate the enlistment office to conduct reconnaissance.

"Another offender in southern Ukraine cooperated with the enemy, as he was counting on a ‘position’ in the occupation administration in the event of its capture," the statement reads.

The informers maintained remote communication with an FSB officer, who directed them in covert cooperation following the launch of Russia’s full-scale invasion. They used a specially created anonymous Telegram messenger channel for communication.

SBU investigators pressed charges under Part 3 of Art. 114-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The informers remain in custody while the investigation continues.
