The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) thinks that the special services of Russia attempt to recruit 90% of the Ukrainian migrant workers as Vasyl Hrytsak, the Head of the SBU claimed to Interfax-Ukraine.
'I will not reveal a secret but the recruitment takes place in 90% of the cases when Ukrainians come to Russia for work. The issue is about a few millions of Ukrainians that stay in Russia but I am sure that we have not revealed all agents of the enemy's special services among the citizens of Ukraine', he said.
According to Hrytsak, the SBU understands that not only a physical and psychological pressure is put on the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and all citizens of Ukraine that detained in Russia but also a recruitment one.
He also spoke about the necessity for the SBU to conduct a check of recently released hostages, who might be recruited by Rusia.
'Of course, we will question them concerning the circumstances of the captivity. There is such definition as the counter-standing questioning and we will definitely hold it. There are cases when our soldier was wounded and was captivated when he was unconsciousness, there are no questions in this situation. If the circumstances of the captivity are not clear or the testimony of other military is doubtful then the counter-standing questioning will take place', Hrytsak said.
Earlier, the SBU claimed that it was going to interview the released hostages, previously held in captivity by Russian militants in Donbas.
