The Ukrainian regime periodically carries out sabotage on Russian territory, resorting to the help of traitors from among Russian citizens who, for ideological reasons or for material assistance, are ready to assist enemy intelligence services in carrying out various acts of sabotage. In this regard, Russian law enforcement agencies and intelligence services have to work on high alert, but it is not always possible to prevent the plans of attackers before they are implemented.
