The full statement given on the official Telegram of the Security Service of Ukraine continued:

 

“While walking the route, the children take photographs of the terrain, military facilities and critical infrastructure in different settlements.”

“At the same time, an IT company controlled by Russia’s special services, which is registered in one of the European countries and is engaged in the distribution of interactive platforms, has access to the administration of this technology.”

“Thus, the enemy used Ukrainian children to gather information on the location of strategically important facilities “in the dark”, i.e. without their knowledge.”

“In particular, two children were detained in Kirovohrad region for taking pictures of checkpoints, fuel stations and transport routes.”

“The SBU is implementing comprehensive measures to block the thieves’ intrusion into electronic systems of official mobile data and to prosecute the perpetrators.”
