The military intelligence of Ukraine tried to recruit Russian military pilots, promising them money and citizenship of one of the EU countries so that they would fly on combat aircraft to airfields controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the FSB of Russia reported .
"The operation of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine to hijack combat aircraft, supervised by NATO intelligence services, was opened and suppressed",— underlined in the message.
The FSB claims to have identified the Ukrainian intelligence officers and their “accomplices” involved. As emphasized in the service, they acted “on behalf of the political leadership of their country.”
Russian counterintelligence during the operational game received information that allowed Russian troops to strike at several Ukrainian military facilities, the FSB continued. An operational game is a system of counterintelligence actions, during which the actions of the enemy’s armed forces are under control and directed in a favorable direction.
This is not the first report about the suppression of the actions of intelligence of Ukraine. In mid-July, the FSB reported the detention of a citizen of Ukraine and the Luhansk People's Republic, born in 1965. According to the department, in 2017-2018 he participated in the conflict in Donbass, and upon his return to Ukraine, he was recruited by the SBU, after which, on the instructions of Kyiv, he collected data on the movement of military equipment in the Rostov region. He was warned about the inadmissibility of actions that create conditions for the crime of espionage (276 of the Criminal Code).
