In the course of a counter-sabotage special operation in the front-line areas of Mykolaiv region, the SSU detained an agent of the russian military intelligence who gave the Russian invaders exact coordinates of the city’s educational institutions for the so-called ‘intimidating’ missile attacks. Below is the SSU’s statement in full.
The traitor also collected intelligence on deployment, movement and armament of Ukrainian Defence Forces in the south.
It was established that based on his ‘information’ on targets in Mykolaiv, several military infrastructure facilities were destroyed and damaged and two schools suffered devastating strikes.
Overall, since the start of the full-scale invasion, russian forces partially or completely destroyed 3 higher educational institutions, 2 technical colleges and over 10 schools in this city.
