The informers were a man and a woman from Vovchansk who covertly collected data on the locations and movements of the Defense Forces in the border area, and recorded the effects of Russian shelling.

The occupiers need this information to plan and prepare for repeated air strikes on Ukrainian targets.

Law enforcement officers could locate and arrest the individuals while performing a task for the Russians. During the search, the detainees’ cell phones were found, which were used for correspondence with the aggressor.

The man and woman were served suspicion notices under Part 3 of Art. 114-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on unauthorized dissemination of information on the sending, movement of weapons, armaments and ammunition to Ukraine, movement, movement or deployment of the Armed Forces or other military formations formed following the laws of Ukraine, committed under martial law.

The suspects are in custody. The investigation is ongoing to establish all the circumstances of the crime.
