Kremlin claimed that it does not possess information on the detention of Stanislav Yezhov, the assistant of Volodymyr Groysman, the Prime Minister of Ukraine that is accused of the state treason in favor of Russia. Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson of the Russian president claimed this to the journalists as TASS reported.
‘We red the news on the detention of Yezhov but we do not possess any information on this issue’, Kremlin claimed.
Peskov added that he cannot comment on the event due to the absence of the detailed information.
As it was reported earlier counter-intelligence officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) uncovered an official of the Secretariat of the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers who was working in the interests of the intelligence of Russia.
Later it was reported that the SBU detained Stanislav Yezhov, the assistant of Volodymyr Groysman, the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
The law enforcers established that the official was recruited by the Russian intelligence during his long business trip abroad. The operatives of the SBU documented that the official used special equipment to collect information about the activity of the governmental bodies as a task of Russian handlers. The perpetrator transmitted the obtained data through electronic channels of communication.
The service added that the spy was detained at his workplace. A criminal case was opened against him on the suspicion of high treason.
