SSU detains pro-russian agitators who praised putin and called for ussr restoration

The SSU has neutralized another network of pro-kremlin propagandists operating in different regions of Ukraine.

They publicly justified russia’s armed aggression and called for seizure of Ukraine’s entire territory.

To conduct information subversion, the perpetrators created dozens of specialized profiles on YouTube and popular social networks.

In Kyiv:

a local resident praising putin and russia’s war against Ukraine has been exposed.

To spread enemy propaganda, she registered an anonymous page on TikTok and published there her anti-Ukrainian posts. The majority of her subscribers were residents of russia.

In Mykolaiv region:

The head of the underground organization young guard of bolsheviks-leninists, whose activities were remotely coordinated by the russian intelligence, has been detained.

On the enemy instructions, the ‘young guard’ prepared paid-for publications for kremlin-controlled international news agencies.

In the articles, the authors popularized the former soviet union and called for its restoration.

For secrecy, the members of the underground cell acted separately and used pseudonyms.

In Dnipropetrovsk region:

A YouTube blogger who cooperated with the command of russia’s Southern military district has been detained.

The traitor remotely received assignments from the occupiers to disseminate provocative videos about the war in Ukraine.

In the paid videos, the author tried to discredit Ukraine’s Defence Forces and spread fakes about the situation at the front.

In Kharkiv:

another supporter of ruscism has been apprehended. The man was praising the soviet regime and promoting communist symbols on his YouTube channel.

Investigations are ongoing to establish all the circumstances of the crimes and bring the involved to justice.

The operations were carried out by the SSU Offices in Kyiv and Kyiv region, in Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv and Kharkiv regions under the procedural supervision of the regional prosecutor’s offices.
