The ministry noted that such statements "should be viewed exclusively through the prism of a hybrid war."
"Such statements of the FSB of the Russian Federation should be viewed exclusively through the prism of a hybrid war, in which information propaganda and the spread of fakes play an outstanding role," Spokesman of the department Artem Dekhtyarenko said.
Dekhtyarenko also noted that the SBU is engaged in countering foreign intelligence and subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. According to him, during the first nine months of 2021, the Service identified about 50 foreign agents, "two of them were on the hot, during an attempt to commit sabotage and terrorist acts."
"In November, the Security Service of Ukraine conducted an unprecedented exposure of the FSB personnel who carried out more than 5,000 cyber attacks on the state bodies of our country. The officers of the FSB of the Russian Federation were identified by name and their conversations were intercepted. Obviously, this is a big reputational loss for the FSB, which once again seeks to discredit the Ukrainian special service with fakes,” he added.
Earlier, the Russian FSB announced the capture of an intelligence agent of Ukraine who was preparing a terrorist attack.
As we reported, the activities of the agent network of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation were revealed in the Donetsk region.
