During the occupation of Kherson by Russian troops, a large group of Ukrainian
partisans operated in the city,
which was engaged in intelligence for the Armed Forces.
The Wall Street Journal writes about it.
According to the journalists, the guerrillas monitored the roads leading to the city, watched videos from street cameras aimed at key intersections, and rode bicycles into the fields, pretending to graze cattle.
Guerrillas have made tracking the Russian occupiers part of their daily lives, playing a key role in adjusting the precision strikes that forced Moscow to withdraw troops from the right bank of the Dnieper.
"These people see how Russian tanks move, they see where soldiers go to have lunch, where they have parties, where they wash clothes, and they share this information with us. Without them, our army would not know anything," said Andrii, a scout of the Ukrainian brigade. .
Group member Maksym, a car repairman, traveled to occupied Crimea three times with a Russian officer whose car he helped repair in Kherson.
All this time Maksym collected valuable information for the Ukrainian military.
Another partisan named Ihor told the newspaper that he was part of a group of 10 people who planted explosive devices under the cars of Russian officers in Kherson.
One member of the group was a technical specialist who intercepted Russian messages and edited them to remove white noise.
The intercepts gave Ukrainian troops information about the preparation of attacks and made it easier to determine the location of Russian artillery.
FSB hunted partisans in Kherson
The material says that the FSB searched the homes of those it considered partisans.
Many people were detained.
The publication writes that on March 28, FSB officers came to the home of one of the members and arrested him.
Soon after, two more members of the Telegram group were arrested.
Members cleared their chat logs of those who had been detained and implemented a new rule: every morning each member had to send a video of themselves at home to prove they were not detained.
Anyone who fails to submit a video will be immediately removed from the group.
According to journalists, despite the fact that the Russian occupiers have left Kherson, many partisans remain imprisoned in the occupied territory.
They hope to exchange prisoners of war.
We will remind you that the Kremlin
sent a new batch of Chekists to Ukraine.
New groups of the FSB began searching for the Ukrainian underground.
Among their tasks: radio-electronic intelligence, eavesdropping on conversations, monitoring Internet traffic, jamming signals during the movement of military equipment of the Russian Federation.
