Three friends who were correctors of Russian attacks on military and medical facilities in Odesa have been served with a notice of suspicion.

This was reported by the Prosecutor General's Office.

The suspects, under the supervision of a Russian FSB officer, collected information about the locations of the Armed Forces units and important infrastructure facilities in Odesa.

The organiser of the agent network was a 23-year-old local resident. On the instructions of her supervisor, she involved two of her friends, who also supported the aggressor's actions, in criminal activities. They personally wrote and sent the curator applications to join the FSB.

For several months, the trio collected and sent text messages, photos, videos and screenshots of Google Maps with the locations of Ukrainian Armed Forces units, recruitment and social support centres, hospitals and air defence facilities via messenger. The members of the network managed to inform the occupiers about at least 7 facilities.

For their work, the women received USD 500. In the event of the occupation of Odesa Region, they also hoped to take up senior positions in the trade department.

The suspects were detained while collecting information about the location of a military unit. Mobile phones with evidence of their reconnaissance and subversive activities in favour of Russia were seized.
"Under the procedural supervision of the Odesa Regional Prosecutor's Office, the organiser and members of the agent network were served with a notice of suspicion of high treason committed under martial law by a group of persons by prior conspiracy (Part 2 of Article 28, Part 2 of Article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine)," the prosecutor's office said. 

Part 2 of Article 111 of the Criminal Code provides that "espionage, assistance to a foreign state, foreign organisation or their representatives in conducting subversive activities against Ukraine" under martial law is punishable by imprisonment for a term of fifteen years or life imprisonment with confiscation of property.

At present, at the request of prosecutors, they have been held in custody without the right to be released on bail.
