Polish counter-intelligence has dismantled a Russian spy ring that gathered information on military equipment deliveries to Ukraine via the EU member, Poland’s interior minister said Thursday.
“The ABW counter-intelligence agency has arrested nine people suspected of working for the Russian secret service,” Interior Minister Mariusz Kaminski told reporters.
“The suspects had been conducting espionage activities against Poland and preparing acts of sabotage on behalf of Russian intelligence services,” he added.
Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak had earlier said, “The whole network has been dismantled,” adding, “the threat was real”.
Six of the suspects have been provisionally charged with espionage and participation in an organized criminal group. The other three were still being questioned.
