Russian special services are trying to recruit the Ukrainian military by using the female pages in social networks. The press office of Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) reported that on August 13. 

A woman hired and controlled by Russian special services got in contact with a Ukrainian serviceman. She tried to get military and political information from him. The woman offered him to collect information for the FSB (the Russian federal security service) in exchange for cash. If the serviceman agreed, he would be able to go to Russia and get a dwelling there - as the woman put it.
