The command of the Russian occupation forces increased the number of Russian intelligence officers in the Donbas. Colonel Dmitry Hutsulyak from the press-center of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said this at the briefing.

"According to the intelligence headquarters of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, the command of Russian occupation forces increased the number of Russian reconnaissance officers involved in the preparation of intelligence-diversion groups in 1st and 2nd units of Russian Armed Forces," he said.

Ukrainian intelligence says this is due to the decrease in effectiveness of militants’ reconnaissance units and increase in intelligence losses.

"In this regard, about 20 intelligence officers of the Russian Armed Forces have begun a thorough study of the situation and conducted a reconnaissance of the area in frontline positions of the Russian occupation troops," Hutsulyak said.
