An FSB agent who adjusted the 13 March 2022 missile strike on Yavoriv training ground in Lviv oblast has been convicted to prison.

On that day, the occupiers launched a massive air attack using almost 30 missiles.

The SSU identified the enemy spotter and detained him as a result of a special operation in Lviv.

Following the SSU’s investigation, the court sentenced the aggressor’s agent to 15 years behind bars.

The convicted individual is a local resident, a former KGB officer.

He was recruited by an FSB agent, who also was uncovered by the SSU and is suspected of collaborating with the aggressor state.

After the start of russia’s full-scale invasion, the traitor was remotely contacted by a liaison who connected him with the FSB handler.

The asset was instructed to establish the locations of the Defence Forces in Lviv region.

Later, he provided the FSB with accurate data on military facilities with marks on the map.

The intelligence was transmitted via a messenger app to the handler from the 9th directorate of the operational information department of the FSB’s 5th service.

Based on the evidence collected by the SSU, the court found the accused guilty and sentenced him to 15 years in prison under Article 111.1 of the CCU (high treason).

The operation was carried out by the Counterintelligence and investigators of the SSU Lviv Office under the procedural supervision of Lviv Region Prosecutor’s Office.
