SBU exposes bloggers who "covered" the work of air defense

11:31 17 May Kyiv, Ukraine

The Security Service of Ukraine exposed 6 citizens of the capital who illegally disseminated information about the actions of air defense during the massive Russian attack on Kyiv.

On the night of May 16, Kyiv was subjected to another massive rocket attack from Russia.. Local bloggers filmed the work of the Ukrainian air defense forces and posted it on social networks.
Thus, they could reveal the location and specifics of the work of domestic air defense, they say in the SBU.
"In a matter of minutes, these videos were picked up by numerous telegram channels and Russian propaganda publics.. Among them are Internet resources controlled by the special services of the aggressor country," the security service added.
In addition, SBU cyber experts blocked the operation of online cameras that automatically recorded the work of the Ukrainian air defense.

According to the investigation, the detected video cameras are on the balance sheet of several metropolitan commercial structures.

At the same time, access to the captured files was open to a wide range of "users" who posted the video of the night attack on Kyiv in the public domain on YouTube.

The invaders could use the information obtained in this way to correct repeated air strikes on the capital of Ukraine.

In the course of urgent investigative actions at the places of actual residence of the defendants, mobile phones and computer equipment were seized, which they used to distribute prohibited content.
Attackers face up to 8 years in prison.
