Law enforcement officers have exposed a resident of Odesa who provided Russian special services with information on the location of military facilities and the movement of equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the Office of the Prosecutor General.

It has been established that the defendant spied for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Odesa itself, as well as in Chornomorsk, Odesa region. First of all, he was interested in the exact coordinates of the concentration of air defence units, data on railway traffic and the availability of weapons and military equipment in the region.
