Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate said the list included 620 FSB officers, Ukrainska Pravda reported. Intel has revealed the names of Russian spies, their place of work, registered address and passport data, as well as the models and registration plates of their cars. A full list of spies can be found on the website of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine. Earlier, according to the BBC, Ukraine said it would not open humanitarian corridors from its cities on Monday due to warnings of Russian “provocation” on the routes.
Corridors were set up to allow civilians to leave some cities surrounded by Russian forces. Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk said: Ukraine has no plans to open a humanitarian corridor to evacuate civilians from the cities under siege on Monday. Vereshchuk said the decision was taken because of intelligence reports warning of a possible Russian ‘provocation’ on Margo, reports the BBC. Secure corridors have been established from Mariupol, Sumy and towns and villages outside the capital Kyiv, which are currently almost surrounded by Russian forces.
Meanwhile, the mayor of Mariupol has said that the besieged port city is on the verge of destruction and must be completely evacuated.
