The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) collected indisputable evidence on another Russian agent who gathered intelligence data on the defence of the border areas of the Chernihiv region.

According to the investigation data, the enemy was interested in the locations of the units of the SBU, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the State Border Guard Service, the police, and the State Emergency Service.

The enemy agent also planned to hand over the location of a district hospital and a local military-civilian administration to his Russian “curator.”

For each completed task, the occupiers promised to transfer up to UAH 3,000 to him on a bank card.

As the investigators established, the criminal is a repeatedly convicted resident of Sievierodonetsk who previously served a sentence for theft and robbery. Several years ago, the recidivist moved from the east of Ukraine to the Chernihiv region as an IDP. At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, he was recruited by a representative of the Russian intelligence service who gave the agent the operational nickname “Tor” and defined the task of reconnaissance and subversive activities.

At the instruction of the aggressor, their accomplice took photos of Ukrainian objects with reference to the area and marked their geolocation on electronic maps. Then he sent this information to the Russian special services via messenger.

Based on the evidence collected by SBU investigators, the court found the offender guilty under Part 2 of Art. 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (high treason committed under martial law).
