Ukrainian security arresting a woman accused of spying on Zelensky


Ukraine’s domestic intelligence service said on Monday it had detained a woman it accused of collecting information about President Volodymyr Zelensky’s itinerary ahead of his travels, as well as trying to pass information about military facilities to Russia.

The Ukrainian Security Service didn’t mention the name of the accused agent.

A photo released by the agency showed a black-haired woman wearing a black and white dress surrounded by two soldiers. All faces in the photo have been blurred.

The service said the suspect was arrested in the southern Ukrainian port city of Mykolaiv.

Zelensky’s media channel reported that he last visited the city on July 27.

The service also accused her of trying to locate Ukrainian electronic warfare systems and ammunition depots near the coastal town of Ochakiv, 48 kilometers from Mykolaiv.

“Members of the agency caught the traitor in the act while she was trying to pass information to the invaders,” he said, adding that additional security measures were taken during the presidential visit.

He said the woman was from Ochakiv and had been working in an army store selling goods to soldiers in a local Ukrainian military unit.

The statement stated that a court had approved her arrest, and if convicted, she would face up to 12 years in prison.
