    Ukrainian Security Forces officer was detained by the Russian Federal Security Services, the FSB said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has detained an employee from the Ukrainian Security Forces, the FSB said Thursday.

    According to the FSB, Ukrainian Security Forces Lt.-Col. Yuriy Ivanchenko arrived in Russia under the presumption of visiting relatives, though Ukrainian authorities prohibit special security forces from leaving the country.

    Ahead of Ivanchenko’s arrival to Russia, the FSB received information that he was trained by the Ukrainian Security Forces and the US Central Intelligence Agency to participate in on operation of collaborating with the Russian FSB and offering it his services.

    “The USF employee was to interest the FSB in his abilities to attain secret information and convince the FSB on the necessity of keeping ties with in under Kiev’s conditions secretly. At one point or another, the USF and CIA planned to capture the FSB employee red-handed with information from Ivanchenko,” the FSB said in a statement.

    Since Ivanchenko was detained before any damage was done to Russian security, he will be deported to Ukraine and banned from entering Russia.
