Russia receives 60% of intelligence through social networks - General Staff
Russian special services receive at least 60% of their intelligence data through social media
The Ukrainian Armed Forces General Staff reported this.
It is noted that recklessly posted photos and videos about the activities of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are one of the main sources of intelligence for Russia.
"The spread of such publications may result in the disruption of a military operation, the death of Ukrainian soldiers and the loss of weapons and military equipment. In turn, the authors of hype reports risk receiving criminal sentences and being imprisoned," the General Staff emphasized.
The message also reminded that no information should be filmed or disseminated about:
- the operation of air defense systems;
- movement and areas of personnel, weapons and military equipment concentration;
- arsenals, bases, storage facilities for material and technical supplies, as well as international material and technical assistance;
- enterprises that manufacture new types of weapons, repair equipment, ammunition and meet other military needs.
The General Staff also urges not to disseminate "exclusive" information about the course of hostilities or the process of performing combat missions.
"Do not disseminate such information to the general public until it is confirmed through official sources. Remember, information silence is what will prevent the enemy from learning the plans of the army, save Ukrainian lives and bring our common victory closer!" the statement says.
On December 27, it was reported that the Russian special services sent provocative messages to Ukrainians abroad calling on them to help Russia expel "American satanists" from the "native Russian land."
