He also recorded the exact coordinates of detected military facilities on an electronic map and reported on the level of their protection.

He paid special “attention” to locations where he noticed the greatest concentration of personnel and military equipment of Ukrainian defenders.

Employees of the SBU arrested the suspect “red handed” while he was photographing the hospital and one of the combat units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

A mobile phone with photos ready to be sent was seized from the detainee.

According to the investigation materials, “the Rashists planned to use this information to carry out targeted airstrikes on the territory of the region.”

As per the SBU employees, “the perpetrator was a local resident who supported the holding of a fake referendum on the accession of Mykolaiv Oblast to the Russian Federation. He repeatedly wrote about this in pro-Russian Telegram channels.”
