Using his personal mobile phone, he photographed documents. After that, using the Telegram messenger and email registered on a Russian domain, he transmitted information to representatives of the aggressor country.

During the searches, the detainee was found to have mobile phones, SIM cards of Russian operators, cash, as well as other evidence.

It was also found that he has ties, including familial ones, with representatives of law enforcement and state bodies of the Russian Federation.

The State Bureau of Investigation notes that now, a report on suspicion of high treason is being prepared for the detained Lieutenant Colonel of the SSU, as well as a petition to the court to choose a preventive measure in the form of detention without a bail alternative.

The sanction of the article provides for a penalty of up to a lifetime of imprisonment.

Quote from SSU Chairman Vasyl Maliuk: "I advise everyone to realise that the SSU is not a place for Kremlin agents and people who do not believe in Ukraine's victory. If someone has betrayed the oath and the Ukrainian people, they must answer according to the law."
