FSB reveals details of the case of ex-footballer Vasilenko, convicted of espionage in favor of Ukraine

31

The First Court of Appeal of General Jurisdiction has upheld the verdict of the Ukrainian ex-footballer Vasily Vasilenko, who was sentenced to 12 years in a maximum security penal colony for espionage in favor of Ukraine.


According to the FSB DSP, Vasilenko purposefully collected secret information about the Russian army, the transfer of which abroad threatened the security of Russia. In addition, he intended to transfer components to the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft system to a "Ukrainian company closely related to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense".

(...) At the end of 2019, Vasilenko V.I. was detained by employees of the Federal Security Service when receiving a batch of components for the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system in the interests of the state concern "Ukroboronprom"

- the FSB said in a statement.

Secret service officers collected comprehensive evidence of the guilt of Ukrainian citizen Vasilenko; in December 2020, the Moscow City Court sentenced the detainee to 12 years in prison with serving time in a maximum security colony, although the prosecution requested 16 years. Vasilenko's defense filed an appeal, but on March 29, the First Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal, upholding the verdict.

From 1992 to 2001 Vasilenko played in several Ukrainian football teams, after the end of his player career he worked as a children's football coach.

      It would be better if he continued to play football.

      Where would he get the components for the S-300 air defense system? And why are former football players doing these things? On a volunteer basis or what? Your deeds are wonderful, Lord.

        The question, probably, is not why the footballer was doing this, but with which of the employees of the departments with access to this classified data did he work? After all, he is not an employee of any industrial campaign. So there was someone who supplied him with all this. They should be held accountable. To the fullest!

          The FSB is obliged for each criminal case to lay out a full range of operational measures to support defense enterprises. Enemy intelligence probes approaches, our counterintelligence detects these actions. This work never stopped. Even in the midst of selling everything and everyone in the 90s.

      Well, he's not actually a "rat". Vasilenko is not a citizen of Russia. This is the enemy. Got you? Place against the wall. As the war goes on. And there is a question. How did a children's football coach come close to defense matters in Russia? I hope that he was specially brought there in order to identify those very home-grown RATS.

    Have survived! Already, "children's football coaches" are trying to steal components for the air defense system .... Well, they managed to catch the "playful handles" in time ..... Actually, it looks like things are not going well for "the valiant owners of the Square", even if to "300-kam" (far from the latest "word of technology"), accessories steal have .....

      So this is Ukraine. The eighth wonder of the world. I hope he will not be released like Sentsov or Savchenko was released in due time. And then there will be another "hero" with a short shelf life, though.
      .Former defender of the Ukrainian football clubs "Tavria" (Novotroitskoe), "Torpedo" (Melitopol) and "Druzhba" (Berdyansk) Vasily Vasilenko was sentenced by the Moscow City Court to 12 years in prison for espionage.


      In October 2019, Vasily Vasilenko was arrested in Moscow for committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 226.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Illegal movement across the border of potent, poisonous, poisonous, explosive, radioactive substances or ammunition").

      According to RIA Novosti, Vasilenko tried to take out military components developed during the USSR. Initially, he was detained in the context of an attempted smuggling of secret equipment. He came to Russia from a Ukrainian law firm that is affiliated with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense.

      It was planned that the former footballer, for a fee, would purchase large military equipment decommissioned in Russia, the sale of which became known via the Internet. "This equipment was developed in the USSR in the 60s, it is still purchased from Russia by many countries, it does not have firepower," the agency's interlocutor explained. The former footballer denied his guilt.

      Later, the charge was reclassified as espionage (Article 276 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). This article provides for up to 20 years of imprisonment. Vasilenko's involvement in the act was established by the FSB. The arrest of the Ukrainian footballer became known only in July, since Vasilenko did not appeal any of the decisions to extend the arrest, as well as the fact of the arrest.

    -for espionage in favor of Ukraine.
    A citizen of Ukraine was detained for espionage in favor of Ukraine.
    For some reason, the process was closed, but it is known for sure that the devices were decommissioned.
    And Kiev is silent, which is also unusual.

      They may at least be rewritten, but this is contraband. Espionage is the collection and transfer of information to another state and it does not matter what your citizenship is, the main thing is that the crime was committed on the territory of the Russian Federation. And Ukraine will soon begin to howl as soon as all the instructions are over.

      The court indicated that Dovgopolaya “carried out reconnaissance tasks aimed at collecting information about a separate aviation regiment of the Black Sea Fleet, revealing the validity of callsigns, frequencies and keys, radio station indices, keys to radio call sign tables and tables of the radio operator on duty and tables of telephone, telegraph, radio and flag call signs for peacetime, that is, information constituting a state secret, the transmission of which could be used to the detriment of the security of the Russian Federation.

    The old footballer receives a batch of S-300 air defense system components, which are supplied to some countries. A parody of a spy, in favor of the country - a parody, for the concern, whose members began to create supposedly "modern technology".

    Parody of a bad detective:

    Yes, the Ukrainians somehow defended Savchenko, starved, Europe and the United States demanded his release. We met, gave a hero, and so on and so on.

    Well, they asked, what was the next thing everyone remembers?

    Now they are afraid to demand release, you never know what)

    Maybe this will at least say something to those who continue to work for them)

    From 1992 to 2001 Vasilenko played in several Ukrainian football teams

    The article does not indicate when he was recruited. I will make the assumption that it was between 1992 and 2001 that Vasilenko was recruited.
