Ukraine: Wife Gave Intel on Husband's Military Unit to Russia
  • Ukraine’s Security Service said it had detained a woman for leaking military intelligence.
  • The unnamed woman tapped her soldier husband for information and leaked it to a Russian serviceman.
  • She was reportedly promised Russian citizenship and a high standard of living when they captured the region.

The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has announced it has detained a woman for revealing the whereabouts of her husband’s military unit and other army assets to Russian forces.

The woman, a 31 wife, and mother from Dnipropetrovsk, informed Russian intelligence of the location of military buildings and the frontline positions of military equipment in Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia, two regions of eastern Ukraine that have seen intense fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces.

According to the statement from the SBU, the unnamed woman is a “traitor.”

“The criminal used her husband “in the dark”: she asked for information about the location of his military unit and other groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in advanced positions.” said the SBU statement.

“She took such a step despite the fact that she is married to a serviceman of the Armed Forces, and they have a son together. Her husband, being on the eastern front, regularly transferred money for the maintenance of the child,” it added .

She texted the classified intelligence about the location of her husband’s military unit and other Ukrainian formations to a Russian serviceman, said the SBU. He passed it on to Russian military intelligence that shared it with the frontline battle groups who used it to launch artillery, mortar, and air strikes.

The SBU says she was promised Russian citizenship and a high standard of living should they succeed in capturing the region for her alleged betrayal.

The woman who started spying for the Russians in May was arrested on September 2, and Ukrainian forces seized her computers and mobile terminals, said the SBU.

Ukraine suffered intense losses on the eastern front in the early summer. Russian bombardments inflicted high artillery, and Putin’s forces made some territorial gains in the Donbas.

In June, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy admitted Ukraine was losing up to 100 soldiers daily.
