Russia’s FSB tries to set up new spy network in Ukraine – top security official
NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov says that the FSB is trying to form a new agent network in Ukraine that will focus on the remaining pro-Russian population
The secretary of Ukraine’s National Security ad Defense Council wrote about this on Facebook.
"Today, by all indications, the Russian FSB agency is making active attempts to form a new agent network, pinning far-reaching hopes on it. In the long run, it is a political project aimed at the remaining part of the pro-Russian population, and in parallel, an information intervention is being carried out to try to undermine the process of internal Ukrainian destabilization," he wrote.
According to Danilov, the signs of such activity are the sharp intensification of various "experts", "intelligence actors" and "other kinds of scammers in promoting the Russian agenda in Russian".
"They are the ones who are currently shouting about the 'failure' of the counteroffensive, hinting at the need to revise the goals of the war (and this is no longer a push to the 1991 borders), giving advice to the Armed Forces on how to fight, issuing false insights about 'conflicts' among the military and political leadership, calling for the acceptance of 'good Russians' and finally hinting that it is necessary to negotiate with Russia," Danilov explained.
The NSDC Secretary emphasized that Ukrainians must be "information-aware" in order not to fall under the influence of these narratives.
