Earlier, we reported that Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has exposed the spy ring of the Chief Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Donbas as 112 Ukraine reported citing Head of Military Counterintelligence of SBU Serhiy Levchenko.
According to him, the significant growth of the activity of the group of the spy ring named “Sapphire” is observed on the eve of the elections. The main tasks assigned by the Russian curator to the members of the spy group was the preparation and holding of the anti-Ukrainian information campaigns; gathering and analysis of the information about the senior leadership of Ukraine, Armed Forces and other military formations and gathering of the intelligence information about forces and means involved in the Joint Forces Operation.
Particularly, the members of the group prepared and spread fake data on the social networks to discredit the senior military-political leadership of Ukraine. For example, the fake order of the Defense Ministry of Ukraine about supposedly stop of the assessment of all extra payments for the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was prepared.
