At the request of Russian supervisors, he collected intelligence on political and public figures, units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, special and law enforcement agencies, foreign military instructors in the western region of the state," the report said.
It notes that SBU officers documented that the collected information was passed on to a Russian intelligence officer who "worked" under the diplomatic cover of Russia's Consulate General in Lviv.

A spy diplomat was declared persona non grata for activity incompatible with the status of a consular officer of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. He has already left Ukraine.
