Security Service of Ukraine
The investigators of the Security Service of Ukraine have exposed a participant of an internet-provoker network while carrying out the tasks on counterintelligence protection of state interests in the field of information security. They say that he was sharing fake messages on the instructions of the Russian intelligence, in order to incite panic among the residents of Ukraine after the introduction of martial law. The press office of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) reported.

The agents of the security service have recorded the distribution on social networks of information with public calls to change the territory borders and the state border of Ukraine.
The law enforcement officers during authorized investigative actions revealed emails of the perpetrator with Russian citizens and the residents of the temporarily occupied Crimea, who set him tasks of spreading provocative materials.

“Tasks” of the Russian curators provided for publishing articles on “legitimacy” of the actions of the Russian Naval Forces near the Kerch Strait and condemning the actions of the Ukrainian sailors.
The SBU personnel established that Russian intelligence has been sending tasks on distributing false information, after the introduction of martial law on the territory of several regions of Ukraine.

The Russian supervisors have been distributing fake information allegedly from the Ukrainian authorities with instructions regarding "use of cars with foreign registration for military needs", fake pictures of empty shelves in grocery stores on the Ukrainian territory, long lines at gasoline stations, orders from military enlistment office within the framework of nationwide mobilization.
The SBU received information on the creation of the so-called internet-provoker network. By the design of the Russian intelligence, the engagement of the Ukrainian people in the dissemination of destructive materials allows to adapt it for the Ukrainian citizens and create an illusion of “veracity” of the messages.
