LUGANSK, November 29. /TASS/. A man who transmitted data about the places of deployment and movements of Russian and LPR (Lugansk People’s Republic) forces to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has been detained in the LPR, a spokesman for the local law enforcement agencies told TASS on Tuesday.

"As a result of operative actions, LPR security officers detained a Ukrainian national born in 1959, who has maintained confidential relations with an officer of a foreign intelligence service - inspector of the SBU corruption and organized crime department for the Donetsk and Lugansk regions Andrey Dinnik (Revenko) - since August 2021," the spokesman said.

Since the beginning of Russia’s special military operation, the man has been collecting data "about the deployment and movements of Russian military hardware and units of the LPR People’s Militia." A criminal case was opened on espionage charges (article 276 of the Russian Criminal Code).

The press service of Russia’s National Guard told TASS earlier in the day that 16 people collaborating with Ukrainian troops had been detained in the LPR.
