SBU: Russian special services tried to recruit Ukraine’s diplomat
The FSB offered him strictly confidential cooperation; the diplomat refused
Russian FSB, the federal security service, attempted to recruit one of employees of the encryption department of Ukraine’s Embassy in Russia. Ukraine’s Security Service, the SBU, reported this on Wednesday.
‘The Russian services acted via his university mate; both studied at a military college, and currently, the Russian enjoys the rank of reserve colonel of Russian Armed Forces. The FSB put pressure on him and charged him to turn to the Ukrainian diplomat with an offer to co-work confidentially’, the SBU’s press service said.
The FSB ‘offered the Ukrainian diplomat assistance in settling issues with his property in the occupied Crimea and assistance in moving his family to Russia. In case of refusal, they threatened to make it so that his son would be enlisted in the Ukrainian army and then, he would be sent to Donbas’. After a conversation and instructions received from the Ukrainian counter-intelligence, the diplomat eventually dropped contacts with the Russian side.
