A network of Russian spies that installed hidden cameras for monitoring important routes and railway junctions has been uncovered in Poland.

The CFTS portal reported this, citing the Nakolei publication.

Agents from Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ABW) detained six foreigners "from across the eastern border" on suspicion of working for the Russian security services.

ABW agents detained the suspects in connection with the discovery of hidden cameras on important routes and railway junctions, which recorded traffic on the rail tracks and transmitted images online. According to reports, the suspects installed dozens of such devices.

They installed the cameras near railway tracks in the Subcarpathian Voivodeship, including around the airport in Jasionka near Rzeszów. This is the main area for the transshipment of Western weapons and ammunition intended for Ukraine. In addition, they planned to install such cameras in other parts of Poland.

Currently, the agency and the police are on high alert. They are also paying special attention to the protection of strategically important railway routes in Poland and stepping up security at critical infrastructure.
