The case of a suspected espionage employee of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) turned out to be more serious than previously thought.

In particular, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) tried to obtain data on the location of artillery positions and air defence positions of the Ukrainian army through an employee of the BND, who is currently arrested.


Accordingly, the FSB instructed the BND agent to remove and transmit GPS data from HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems supplied by the United States and the IRIS-T air defence system supplied by Germany.

As a reward for his services, the employee received a six-figure sum; the money was found  during the detention.

However, insiders point out it is unlikely that such data was transferred.

As reported, on 21 December, the German federal prosecutor's office arrested an employee of the country's Federal Intelligence Service on suspicion of high treason; the man is suspected of spying for Russia.

Later, it became known that Russia could have received classified information about the situation in Ukraine because of the detained employee of the special service.
