Ukraine accuses government interpreter of spying for Russian Federation

UN General Assembly calls Russia ‘occupant power

He said Mr Yezhov was "an official in the government's secretariat who was working in the interests of the enemy state [Russia] for a long time".

The Security Service of Ukraine said they arrested the official for acting "in the interests" of the "aggressor" after being recruited by Russian intelligence agencies.

Yulia Miroshnikova, the spouse of Stanislav Yezhov, assistant to the Ukraine's prime minister, has called the arrest of her husband nonsense.

"The action that's been taken is a matter for the Ukrainian authorities".

The Ukrainian press has found out that Yezhov's wife is a citizen of Russian Federation, graduated from Saint Petersburg University and works at the Kiev-based Donbass Fuel and Energy Company.

Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman posted about the arrest on his Facebook page.

Its release said: "The SBU operatives documented that the offender by the order of Russian curators collected data on the activities of governmental institutions by means of special equipment".

'He was respected. And he responsibly and diligently worked for the Russian special services'.

Neither the PM nor the SBU named the position or name of the detained official, but he has been widely named as Stanislav Yezhov.

A press release from the SBU, Ukraine's secret service, said they had detected a Russian agent working for the Ukrainian government.

Photos on what appears to be his social networking profile on Russian website VK show him on trips with Groysman, including sat behind the prime minister during talks with former USA vice president Joe Biden.

Mr Yezhov's home and workplace are now being searched by Ukrainian security services.

Mrs May attacked Russian Federation for "weaponising information" as she announced a UK-Poland defence treaty. It is not our practice to comment on legal proceedings in other jurisdictions'.
