According to the investigation, until January 2021, the traitor transmitted information to his Russian handlers about the location of the Azov battalion corps.
Later, he left Ukraine and worked remotely from Egypt for the Russian special services. In June 2022, he returned to Ukraine and arrived in the Chernivtsi region.
SBU employees note that the man was supposed to scout for data on the location of fuel tanks and the deployment of the Ukrainian military in the Chernivtsi region. According to the SBU, the invaders planned to carry out sabotage there, including explosions at railway facilities and logistics warehouses.
The Office of the Prosecutor General also notes that since May 2022, the man contacted representatives of the DPR terrorist organization through social networks and began to cooperate with a pro-Russian resident in the Chernihiv region.

Law enforcement officers detained the traitor in Chernivtsi, and his accomplice – in Chernihiv.
