Details: Yenin noted that Ukrainian citizens sometimes leak information to the Russian occupying forces for up to 10,000 hryvnias [about US$300].

Quote: "Our citizens enter into cooperation with the Russians for some 5,000-10,000 hryvnias. In exchange for this money, they provide them with information about the location of military facilities and checkpoints, and information about the sites of missile strikes.

Treason for $300 is almost like 30 pieces of silver. And the prospect of spending the next 15 years in a small cell."

More details: At the same time, Yenin noted that the operations carried out by the police and the Security Service of Ukraine to expose these people are pretty effective.
