The Russian Defense Ministry denied reports of the capture by the Ukrainian security forces of the “Russian intelligence agent” in the Lugansk region. Earlier, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry reported on the alleged detention of the serviceman Viktor Ageyev.
The message of the Russian department indicates that the military, Viktor Ageyev, never served under a contract in the Russian Armed Forces. He served in the army, but in May 2016 he retired.
“Information about the alleged arrival of Viktor Ageyev for military service under a contract with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is a fiction of Ukrainian propagandists,” the Russian department said.
