SSU detains spy who tried to use webcam to direct missiles at Ukrainian military trains

The SSU has detained an enemy informant who was preparing a missile attack on the railway infrastructure of Kirovohrad oblast.

The spotter is a resident of Kropyvnytskyi. He tried to install a webcam near one of the bridges to record the ‘schedules’ of the movement of military echelons.

In case of detecting the AFU rolling stock, the agent was to transmit the coordinates online to the aggressor in order to prepare a targeted strike on the railway line.

In such a way, the occupiers hoped to disrupt supplies of Ukrainian weapons and ammunition to the frontline.

However, the SSU was proactive and caught the aggressor’s informant in the act as he tried to install a webcam near the railway line.

During the search, the SSU found a mobile phone to which he intended to connect to the video device to monitor the movement of trains.

SSU investigators have now served the detainee a notice of suspicion under Article 114-2.3 of the CCU (unauthorized dissemination of information on sending, transfer of weapons, armaments and ammunition to Ukraine, movement, transfer or location of the AFU or other lawful military formations, committed under martial law).

The suspect is in custody and faces up to 12 years in prison.

The operation was carried out by the SSU Office in Kirovohrad region under the procedural supervision of the regional Prosecutor’s Office.
