A spy network working for Russia with the objective of preparing sabotage operations in Ukraine has been uncovered by the Polish Internal Security Agency (ABW).
The ABW detained six individuals during their investigation and issued an alert regarding railway and national critical infrastructure facilities due to the network's activities.
The arrested suspects are foreigners from the eastern border, allegedly working for the Russian secret services. ABW agents apprehended them after discovering hidden cameras on important routes and railroad junctions, which recorded movements on railway tracks and transmitted images to the network.
The cameras were primarily installed in the Subcarpathian Voivodeship, near the airport in the settlement of Jasionka, which serves as the primary transit point for Western armaments and ammunition going to Ukraine. However, cameras were also installed in other parts of Poland.
As a result of this special operation, security and police officers are on high alert, with law enforcement officers paying special attention to the security along strategically important railroad routes and critical infrastructure facilities.
