We are dismantling the proxy networks Russia has set up in Ukraine 30 years ago, said Vasyl Maluk, head of the Security Service of Ukraine, in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine on Friday. As stated, “Russia wanted many clients” in Ukraine.

– (Vladimir) Putin is a KGB officer who has been reconstructing agent work in Ukraine for decades.

Malloch gave a number of 300 people he called “traitors”. He admitted that there are nine of them in the Ukrainian security service alone, and 102 in the armed forces. – Unfortunately, there were also traitors in various authorities: we discovered “moles” in the Cabinet Secretariat, in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, among current and former law enforcement officers and representatives of the defense forces, – said the head of the SBU. He emphasized that the CIA not only “exposes individual traitors,” but also “destroys the networks of agents that Russia has been preparing for 30 years.”
