Poland's Internal Security Agency has detained six people part of a Russian spy ring who are alleged to have been spying on transfer points for weapons to Ukraine and planning acts of sabotage, according to RMF24.

The authorities detained the suspects in connection with the discovery of "dozens" of hidden cameras at railway junctions, the airport, and other important routes that recorded and transmitted vehicle movements.

According to RMF24, the main task of the suspects was to collect information from the hidden cameras. However, it is possible that they were also planning to commit acts of sabotage.

Maciej Matysiak, ex-deputy chief of the Military Counterintelligence Service, told RMF24 that the spy network may have been searching for information regarding the number of transports to Ukraine, the level of security measures in place, and the type of equipment.
