A Russian intelligence asset was exposed and charged over collecting data on the Armed Forces and territorial defense troops in Kyiv.

That’s according to the Security Service of Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.

Under the procedural leadership of the Kyiv City Prosecutor's Office, a local resident was charged with unauthorized dissemination of information about the deployment of the Armed Forces and territorial defense forces, committed under martial law (Part 2, Article 114-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

According to the inquiry, since April 2022, the suspect, on his own initiative, had been collecting data and taking photographs of locations of Ukrainian Army servicemen and territorial defense troops in Kyiv. Through one of the messengers, he would transmit information to a Russian citizen deployed in the temporarily occupied territory of Donetsk region as a special correspondent of one of the Russian media outlets, accredited by the so-called "Ministry of Information of the ‘DPR.’”

To conceal his illegal activities, the suspect switched phone numbers and used passwords and other specific wording in his correspondence with his Russian contact.

During the raid, a mobile phone and computer equipment with evidence of criminal activities were seized from the culprit.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, a resident of Zhytomyr region, who had been passing to Russian military intelligence operatives sensitive data on the exact location of strategic infrastructure facilities, was formally charged with treason.
