Russian saboteurs detained in Kyiv – General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

One man, according to the military command, is suspected of collaborating with L/DPR militants.

Ukrainian servicemen detained two people in Kyiv who are suspected of working for the Russian special services. Such information voiced Alexey Gromov, Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to him, the detained citizens are probably Russian saboteurs. The suspects had on their smartphone photos of Kyiv’s railway infrastructure and checkpoints where Ukrainian servicemen are on duty.

Gromov said that a woman was detained in the Shevchenkovsky district of the capital, and a man was detained in the Dneprovsky district. The latter, in addition to sabotage work in the interests of the Russian Federation, is suspected of collaborating with the pro-Russian militants of the L/DPR.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine notes that the activity of Russian saboteurs in Kyiv and the region has decreased significantly. However, this may be due to the fact that the military command of the RF Armed Forces has put a number of DRG cells into “sleep” mode, which are awaiting further instructions. Gromov added that two citizens who are suspected of working for the occupiers were detained in Kyiv for one week.

It should be noted that during the briefing, the Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also stated that Russia deployed its special forces and representatives of PMCs to the territory of Belarus. According to Alexei Gromov, aggressor countries can create sabotage and reconnaissance groups near the border with Ukraine.

It was also reported that curfew violator shot dead at one of the checkpoints in Kyiv. The capital’s media claimed that the man rammed the structure in a car and tried to escape from the scene of the emergency, but the servicemen opened fire on the vehicle.
