The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has detained a sabotage group of FSB sleeper agents in Dnipro.
“In Dnipro, an SBU task force unit detained a sabotage group of FSB sleeper agents that consisted of three local residents. Under the supervision of the enemy’s intelligence, they carried out sabotage and reconnaissance across the region. The agents told the investigation that the group had been formed in 2015 and remained idle until now,” the statement reads.
Recently, the enemy activated the cell, ordering that they closely monitor critical and military infrastructure, as well as set fire to the premises of Ukrainian NGOs to form a favorable ‘image’ for the russian media, the SBU said.
Their latest tasks were to infiltrate the ranks of local Territorial Defense units and obtain data on the Headquarters of the National Guard and the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to the statement.
