Ukraine’s Security Service, SBU, said Thursday it has detained two Russian FSB spies who used a diguies of a newlywed couple to spy  on the “maritime defense” of the Odesa region to help Russia pinpoint it strikes on “military infrastructure” sites.

According to the SBU, a 23-year-old Odesa native and his 18-year-old “fiancée” were gathering intelligence at the border guard service sites at Ukraine’s major port city.  Acting as a loving couple on a strall, they secretly took pictures of the military-related sites and later sent them to a Russian secret service operative.

The investigation found the spies had been also ordered to put up 100 “provocative leaflets” complaining about the conscription campaign, and set fire to a local power substation.
