The Security Service of Ukraine banned 13 foreign journalists commissioned by russia from entering Ukraine for three years. The SSU announced this on their Telegram channel.

According to the SSU, these journalists have been exposed since the beginning of the full-scale russian invasion, they have been preparing "commissioned" content for kremlin propagandists and publishing disinformation from the frontlines.

In addition, since the beginning of the full-scale attack, the Secret Service has neutralized more than a dozen bot farms with a capacity of more than 100,000 fake accounts; exposed hundreds of Internet agents who acted in favor of the occupiers; blocked more than 5.5 thousand accounts.

One of their latest special operations was exposing the russian special services' extensive intelligence network run from Crimea. It consisted of pseudo-journalists and so-called "experts" who received money for their work from russian supervisors.

Currently, the "editor-in-chief" who coordinated the group's activities is hiding in the temporarily occupied territory. The SSU investigators have notified him of suspicion in absentia.
