They prepared sabotage and spread propaganda: in Poland they told about the plans of Russian spies
In Poland, the secret services managed to expose and detain spies who carried out subversive activities in favor of Russia. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the country told more about the work of the group and its future fate.
The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Poland, Mariusz Kaminsky, noted that the special services detained 9 people. 6 of them have already received preventive measures, against 3 investigative actions are ongoing.
What tasks did Russian spies have
Mariusz Kaminsky said that with the help of cameras, spies tracked and documented the transit of weapons along the railway tracks and in the area of the Jasionki airport in Rzeszow. That is, the detained agents conducted intelligence activities for the enemy and even prepared sabotage.
Already 6 detainees have received suspicions of spying for Russia and participation in an organized criminal group, and they have chosen preventive measures in the form of detention. The cases of 3 more detainees will soon be brought to court and they will also be taken into custody
Employees of the Homeland Security Agency recorded cameras, electronic equipment, as well as GPS transmitters, which were supposed to be installed on vehicles with the help of Ukraine.
The group was also entrusted with propaganda activities aimed at destabilizing Polish-Ukrainian relations, inciting hostility towards NATO countries in Poland and discrediting the Polish government's policy towards Ukraine, Kaminsky said.
Spies received money from Russia for their activities. This reward was systematic and Polish law enforcement officers have the relevant evidence.
Recall that the arrest of spies became known on March 15. Employees of the Homeland Security Agency found dozens of hidden cameras on important highways and railway junctions. In particular, in the area of the Rzeszow airport. That is, spies tracked the main ways of supplying weapons to Ukraine.
Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President's Office, called on the world to react harshly to Russian agents so that the Kremlin was afraid to use “useful idiots” for its own purposes.
