The FSB declared the apprehension of a cajoled Russian conscripted for perfidy.


FSB agents in the Novgorod region arrested a Russian who they believe persuaded Russian conscripts to betray, including surrender. On this subject informed TASS in reference to the law enforcement agency’s press service.

According to the FSB, the man cooperated with the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and persuaded the mobilized to transfer information about the locations of Russian military units and formations, to steal military equipment and to surrender voluntarily, says the special service.

A criminal case has been opened against the detainee under part 1 of article 275 of the Criminal Code – “Cooperation in confidence with a foreign state, international or foreign organization”. The court sent the man under arrest for two months.

The FSB press service does not name the detainee. Other details of the case are also not given by the security forces.

Moreover, the FSB reported about the detention of an anonymous resident of Khabarovsk and an activist of the YaMyFurgal movement (which advocated for the release of the former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergei Furgal). According to the intelligence service, it funded the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).

Security forces claim that the suspect, “acting for reasons of political hatred and enmity”, transferred money to buy weapons, ammunition and uniforms for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A case was opened against her under article 275 of the Criminal Code – “Treason”.

At the end of February, the FSB said it had identified two residents of Sevastopol who offered to Ukrainian intelligence services to buy data on objects from the Russian Ministry of Defense from them. Criminal charges were brought against the men under the article on treason and article 275.1 of the Penal Code – “Establishment of confidential cooperation with a foreign State”, and arrested. At the beginning of March, the case also became known for the first time when financial aid to Ukraine became the basis for the opening of a criminal case: the FSB then reported the detention of a Muscovite suspected of treason for funding the Ukrainian Armed Forces. . In mid-March, a court in Petrozavodsk arrested Andrey Vasyurenko, an 18-year-old student who, according to security officials, persuaded the Russians to side with the Ukrainian Armed Forces and, thus, persuaded them to commit treason. Human rights activists have called Vasyurenko’s case the first known case of detention in Russia for incitement to treason.
