The collaborator was detained back in March.
Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said that the invaders were able to quickly capture the Kherson region due to the betrayal of the SBU officer Igor Sadokhin.
He stated this during the broadcast with Mark Feigin.
Arestovich recalled that information about the betrayal of Sadokhin was previously published by the chairman of the Kherson Regional Council Alexander Samoylenko. Recruited by the special services of the Russian Federation, Sadokhin worked “either as an assistant to the chairman of the SBU of the region or as his deputy.”
“Chairman of the Kherson regional council Oleksandr Samoylenko said that the quick capture of the region became possible thanks to the betrayal of Igor Sadokhin, an employee of the SBU recruited by the special services of the Russian Federation,” Arestovich said.
The former SBU officer provided the invaders with maps of minefields and the location of the armed forces of Ukraine. In addition, the traitor coordinated Russian air strikes.
“He was detained back in March. Then the president dismissed the head of the SBU of the region, Serhiy Krivoruchko, and stripped him of his title. The impossible happened in Ukraine – for the first time they began to name the perpetrators,” Arestovich said.
